This Battery was posted on the morning of this day near Crawfish Springs, when one half of the Battery under Lieutenants Sturges and Ziegler was ordered to re-enforce Bridges' Illinois Battery near Glass' Mill, where, about noon, it engaged in a severe artillery duel with a portion of the batteries of Breckinridge's Division. The enemy's guns being withdrawn, the half Battery was ordered to join the other half at about 2 p.m., when the whole Battery moved to the left via Crawfish Springs. One half under Lieutenants Sturges and Ziegler, in support of troops of Second and Third Brigades came into action on this ground at about 6 p.m., firing ten rounds canister. At 8 p.m. this half was ordered to join the other half on the hill west of this position, where the Battery remained during the night.
