Willich's Brigade, Johnson's Division, McCook's Corps.
September 20, 1863,
Morning.

The battery came into position on this field early in the morning in rear of its Brigade in reserve. About 10 o'clock a heavy Confederate column was discovered about 1000 yards north. Crossing the road the Battery changed front, a few minutes later the Confederates charged on this position and got up to within fifty yards. The Battery then opened double shotted with canister, and with the aid of the 15th Ohio of the Brigade and various commands and fragments of infantry, they were repulsed, and driven with heavy loss. The Confederates having disappeared in front and showing themselves in rear, the Battery moved to the Kelly House, and faced to the rear.
