3d Tennessee Infantry, Col. Calvin H. Walker
10th & 30th Tennessee Consolidated Infantry, Col. Randal MacGavock (K)
Lt. Col. James J. Turner

The brigade moved from Port Hudson, Louisiana, to Jackson, Mississippi where it arrived on May 9. Early on May 11 the brigade marched to Raymond and went into bivouac. At 9:00 a.m. on May 12 the brigade was deployed for battle along Fourteen Mile Creek to block the Federal advance coming from Utica. Fighting erupted at 10 o'clock. At noon Gregg launched an attack en echelon with the intention of turning the Federal right flank and capturing the enemy guns positioned south of the creek. The attack soon faltered as additional Union brigades arrived on the field. The Federals counterattacked and by 4 p.m. forced Gregg's men from the field. The brigade fell back through Raymond and bivouacked for the night along Snake Creek. On May 13 Gregg's men withdrew to Jackson.

Casualties reported 73 killed, 252 wounded, 190 missing or captured
