Brigader General John M. Brannan.
September 20, 1863. until 11:30 a.m.
1st Brigade ... Colonel John M. Connell.
2nd Brigade ... Colonel John T. Croxton.

Before daylight of the 20th, Croxton's and Connell's brigades were brought forward from their bivouac on the slope west of Dyer's house and placed in line west of Poe's house and between Reynold's and Negley's divisions. Early in the morning Van Derveer's brigade was placed in reserve in the east edge of the Dyer field, and about 10 o'clock was dispatched toward Baird and struck Breckinridge's division at the Lafayette road marching south through the Kelly field, and assisted in repulsing it. At 11:30 o'clock Brannan's line was attacked on the right and in rear by Hood's division of Longstreet's column, driven from the field, and parts of Connell's and Croxton's brigades rallied on Snodgrass Hill.
