This Brigade was brought in haste from near Alexander's house by General Forrest arriving here about 9 a.m. It formed line and attacked Croxton's Brigade then engaged with Forrest's troops but which immediately changed front to receive this attack. Croxton was at first forced to considerably to the rear but soon recovered. After an hour's hard fighting with varying success assisting in forcing two lines of battle to retire Wilson's line was attacked on its left flank by Scribner's Brigade and driven back to the ground where it first became engaged. Upon the arrival of Ector's Brigade soon after the 25th and 29th Georgia Regiments went forward with Ector into action.
