On the 19th this regiment was at Owen's Ford below Crawfish Springs, skirmishing all day to keep a Confederate Division from crossing the Chickamauga. At 5 p.m. went to the relief of troops that were pressed near Brotherton House. Lay west of the Brotherton Field that night.

Sunday the 20th at an early hour, with its Brigade, moved north on the Lafayette Road and reported to General Thomas; was ordered to a position on the left of General Baird; was then ordered to this position and was immediately attacked by troops of Breckinridge's Division with an overwhelming force. Having no support fell back and reformed on the hills west of this position, and thence withdrew to Rossville under orders from General Negley.

Loss: Killed 4; Wounded 52; Missing 53; Total 109.
