VanDerveer's Brigade

—Brannan's Division —

Battery I, 4th U.S. Artillery.
4 Light 12 Pdrs.
Van Derveer's Brigade, Brannan's Division, Thomas' Corps.
September 19, 1863
1st Lieutenant Frank G. Smith, Commanding.
1st Lieutenant George B. Rodney.
2d Lieutenant John M. Stephenson.
2d Lieutenant Nicholas Redmond (wounded).


After an all night's march from the vicinity of Owen's ford on the Chickamauga, via Crawfish Spring, Kelly's house and McDonald's, the Brigade, without breakfast, encountered the enemy on this ground about 8 a.m.
The Battery was posted, one section between the two infantry regiments in line, the other on their right, both conforming to necessary changes of front, to meet successive attacks from the southeast, east and northeast.
Lieutenant Rodney commanded the 1st Section, Lieutenant Stephenson the 2d Section, the Battery Commander remaining with the latter. The fighting ceased about 1 p.m. About 2 p.m., the enemy having withdrawn, the Brigade, including the Battery, moved to the LaFayette road, and eventually bivouacked for the night on the ridge west of the Dyer field. Casualties of the day: 1 officer and 11 enlisted men wounded, 1 limber blown up, and 16 horses permanently disabled.
