Major General Alexander McD. McCook

Twentieth Army Corps.
Major General Alexander McD. McCook.
1st Division — Brigadier General Jefferson C. Davis
2d Division — Brigadier General Richard W. Johnson.
3d Division — Major General Phillip H. Sheridan.

September 19th, 1863.


McCook's Corps marched at daylight, September 19th, from Pond Spring, Johnson's Division leading, followed by Davis' and Sheridan's Divisions, and halted at Crawfish Springs, at 10:15 a.m. Johnson's Division moved via Widow Glenn's to General Thomas' support, arriving on the right of Baird's Division, about noon. Johnson secured and held throughout the afternoon an advanced position towards Alexander's house, and, supported by two brigades of Baird's Division, sustained a fierce night attack from Cleburne's Division. This portion of the Union line, falling back out of fire, bivouacked in the woods on the eastern edge of the Kelly field. Davis' Division, which followed Johnson's to the vicinity of Widow Glenn's, moved eastward from this point to locate the enemy's left flank east of the LaFayette road, and at 2 p.m. became heavily engaged east of Viniard's house, the battle there continuing fiercely till dark. After 2 p.m. Sheridan was ordered to replace Wood's Division at Lee and Gordon's Mill, but upon reaching that point was almost



immediately ordered to leave on brigade at the mill and with the other two brigades go to the assistance of Davis' and Wood's Divisions and Wilder's Brigade of Mounted Infantry then hotly engaged about Viniard's.

The enemy after forcing the Union lines west of the LaFayette road, was finally driven back into the woods east of the road at sunset.
