—————————

Brannan's Division, after advancing from the LaFayette road at McDonald's, became heavily engaged in this vicinity between 7 and 8 a.m. with Forrest's Cavalry dismounted. Croxton's Brigade went into action on the next road to the right, and a quarter of a mile nearer Jay's Mill. Van Derveer's Brigade became hotly engaged on this ground about 8 o'clock, advancing several hundred yards in a southeasterly direction. Connell's Brigade acted as a support both to Croxton and Van Derveer. Croxton was at first driven back, but soon regained and held his ground. About 9 a.m. Baird's Division reached the right of Brannan, and relieved the pressure at that point. Baird was, however, struck in flank by Liddell's Division, and Baird's left brigade, (J.H. King) was driven in confusion over Van Derveer's Brigade. The last assault upon Brannan's Division was made on this ground, the enemy advancing from the ravine a quarter of a mile north of this point. Van Derveer met this attack by rapidly changing his
front and quickly occupying the crest north of the Ringgold road. Fighting having ceased at this point Brannan's and Baird's Divisions were withdrawn about 1:30 p.m. to the high ground about a half mile east of McDonald's house.
