This division being withdrawn at 3:30 p.m. from the line it then held between Glass' Mill and Crawfish Springs Creek, reported to General Rosecrans at Widow Glenn's at 5 o'clock, and was sent forward at once to this vicinity to restore the line from which Van Cleve's Division had been driven. It first met and checked the further advance of Clayton's Brigade of Stewart's Division, which was pursuing Van Cleve and had penetrated the Union line nearly to the Tan Yard. At 6 p.m. the division advanced with Sirwell's Brigade on the right of the line and Stanley's on the left, the enemy retired into the forest east of the LaFayette road at dusk, and Negley's Division then established itself in the east edge of the Brotherton woods about 250 yards east of this, where it remained until relieved by General Wood's Division at 9:30 on the morning of the 20th, when it moved under orders to proceed to the left of the main line.
