Major General John B. Hood

Longstreet's Corps.
Major General John B. Hood.
September 18-19, 1863.

Hood's Division, - Brigadier General Evander McIver Law.
Johnson's Division, - Brigadier General Bushrod R. Johnson.

These two Divisions under command of General Johnson preceded by a small force of Forrest's Cavalry, forced a crossing of the Chickamauga at Reed's Bridge at 3 p.m. of the 18th. At 4 p.m. General Hood arrived from Ringgold and assumed command, advancing to this position via Jay's Mill and bivouacking for the night, having skirmished sharply first with Minty's Brigade of cavalry and then with Wilder's Brigade of mounted infantry and part of Dick's infantry brigade. Early on the 19th the divisions were reorganized by placing the brigades of Robertson, Law and Benning, under Law, and the brigades of Johnson, McNair and Gregg, under Johnson.
