Col. James A Williamson

Nov 24, 1863

4th Iowa - Lieut. Col. George Burton.

9th Iowa - Col. David Carskaddon.

30th Iowa - Lieut. Col. Aurelius Roberts.

31st Iowa - Lieut. Col. Jeremiah W. Jenkins.

This brigade, the left of Osterhaus' Division, supported the batteries on the hills west of the bridges near the mouth of Lookout Creek, until Woods' Brigade had crossed further up the stream and moved down on the flank of the enemy's position, when Gen. Williamson then crossed the with the 26th and 31st Iowa and assisted in the capture of a large portion of the Confederate picket force. The 26th Iowa was sent by Gen. Hooker to support the movement along the road over the river bluff, and the 31st Iowa marched directly to the Cravens House and assisted the troops engaged there. The 9th and 26th Iowa soon joined at that point. The 4th Iowa, with the 13th Illinois of Woods' Brigade, had already arrived at Geary's position having been relieved from their support of the batteries. The 30th Iowa ascended the mountain toward night, and at 8 p.m. reported to Gen Geary and relieved the 28th Pennsylvania on his right near the foot of the palisades. The 25th Iowa was retained with the batteries in Lookout Valley.
