—Cleburne's Division —

Calvert's Arkansas Battery.
2 6 Pounders, 2 12 Pounder Howitzers.
Polk's Brigade, Cleburne's Division, Hill's Corps.
September 20, 1863.

1st Lieutenant Thomas Key, Commanding.

In the charge of the Division on the morning of this day, the Battery engaged the enemy and in the midst of the battle had one howitzer disabled when the Battery was withdrawn, securing the disabled piece. About 5 p.m., while the Brigade was engaged in assaulting the enemy's rail and log barricades under a close and destructive fire of musketry and artillery, and while the Brigade was being cut down and faltering, the Battery was moved by hand into position on this ground, within 170 yards of the enemy's line, and opened on it with double charges of canister, continuing the fire until the enemy withdrew. During the engagement on Sunday, the Battery, with the Brigade, captured 2 rifled pieces of artillery.

Casulites of the battle: 1 man mortally wounded; 5 slightly wounded; 3 horses killed.
