Withdrawal of the Union Left
September 20, 1863, 5:30 P.M.


At half after 5 o'clock Reynolds' Division was moved out of
the works south of the Kelly Field, encountering no opposition
until it reached a point near the end of the woods in rear of this
position. It then charged forward into the McDonald Field in two
lines, with Turchin's Brigade on the right and Robinson's on the
left, passing close to the front of Govan's and Walthall's Brigades of Liddell's Division and forcing it back across the LaFayette Road. King's (Robinson's) Brigade then moved to the left on this road and the 75th Indiana and 105th Ohio took position on the first ridge facing eastward toward the enemy, the 68th Indiana and 101st Indiana being detached near the Mullis House and sent by order of General Thomas to General Brannan at Snodgrass Hill to cover the withdrawal of that portion of the line. Turchin's Brigade formed on the left of Robinson's in rear of McCook's Brigade. Willich's Brigade moving from a point near the Kelly House, formed on Robinson's right. Palmer's Division having been withdrawn from the east side of the Kelly Field, followed by Johnson's and Baird's Divisions, Both the latter under severe fire, passed through Reynolds' covering line and proceeded to Rossville by way of McFarland's Gap, the enemy following



only to the LaFayette Road.
