—Wood's Division —

Harker's Brigade, Wood's Division, Crittenden's Corps.

September 19, 1863.

Captain Cullen Bradley, Commanding.
1st Lieutenant Oliver H.P. Ayres.
1st Lieutenant James P. McElroy.
2d Lieutenant George W. Smetts (Wounded).


The battery left Lee and Gordon's Mill about 3 p.m. with its Brigade, at a double-quick, reaching this vicinity near 3:30 p.m. The Brigade entered the woods east of the road and north of the Viniard house in support of Heg's Brigade which was fiercely engaged, the Battery remaining in the road. Soon the enemy came pouring out of the woods in every direction and at the same point where the Brigade had entered only a few moments previously. The Battery came into position near the road, but could not fire at once, as the Union troops and the enemy seemed to be intermingled. The Battery retired by sections to this position, one section retiring with prolonges fixed, using canister with effect. The pieces then opened on the enemy who came within about 50 yards of the Battery before he gave way. In a short time he reappeared, renewing the fight, but was finally repulsed. The Battery remained near this position till morning. casualties: 1 enlisted man killed; 1 officer



and 4 men wounded; 2 horses wounded.
