Upon the retreat of two brigades of Brannan's Divisions from
the vicinity of the Poe House after the break at the Union center, General Reynolds moved King's Brigade to the left and across the Lafayette Road, and formed it in front of the Kelly Field, facing south. It was not seriously engaged during the afternoon. About 5 p.m. Colonel King was killed and Colonel Robinson took command. At 5:30 it withdrew with the division passing north on the Lafayette Road to the fields south of McDonald's, where at sunset it took part with Turchin's Brigade in a charge northward upon the flank of Liddell's Division, forcing it east of the Lafayette Road. It then proceeded to Rossville. Near Mullis Hill the 68th and 101st
Indiana



were detached to cover Brannan's withdrawal from Snodgrass Ridge.
