Ninth Regiment Infantry.
George F. Dick, Colonel.
Second Brigade (Dick).
Third Division (VanCleve).
Twenty First Corps (Crittenden).

Friday, P.M., September 18th, 1863, this Regiment with its Brigade was ordered from Crawfish Springs to support Wood's Division, then engaged near Lee and Gordon's Mill.

Saturday, September 19th, with its Brigade, met and repulsed the severe charge of Stewart's Division east of LaFayette Road, after which it was ordered to the position where this monument stands and aided in successfully resisting the fierce assaults of the enemy from 4 until 4:30 p.m., when it was compelled to retire by reason of a heavy flank movement of the enemy on the right.

Sunday morning, September 20th, in line west of LaFayette Road near Kelly Field, severely engaged for a short time with Breckinridge's troops, and upon retiring took position on the next ridge beyond the Snodgrass House, and about 5 p.m. marched to McFarland's Gap.
