This Brigade, being the right of Brannan's Division, and the advance of the 14th Corps, reached this point from the Kelly field between 7 and 8 o'clock and formed a line of battle facing east. It became engaged with Forrest's Cavalry half way between this position and Jay's Mill at 7:30 a.m. Soon after 8 o'clock Wilson's Infantry Brigade of Walker's Division appeared on Croxton's right flank necessitating a new line of battle nearly at right angles to the front, facing south. Here the Brigade, re-enforced on its left by the 31st Ohio of Connell's Brigade, fought in single line.
