Buckner's Division

Brigadier General Simon B. Buckner's Division
Colonel John C. Brown's Brigade
Early on February 15, 1862 General Buckner's Division relieved by the 30th Tennessee, left the line of trenches west of Indian Creek and, headed by the 3d Tennessee, marched to its assigned position in this vicinity. The 3d Tennessee occupied the trenches across Wynn's Ferry Road and covered the division as it deployed behind the crest of this hill. Graves' Battery manned the guns on the left of Wynn's Ferry Road and opened a destructive fire upon the Federal batteries on the opposite side of the valley.

At 9 a.m. the 14th Mississippi, deployed as skirmishers, debouched from the intrenchments, crossed the open field, and advanced under severe fire up the hill to the southwest which was held by Wallace's Brigade. Fighting continued for an hour or more. The 3d Tennessee, Colonel Joseph B. Palmer, were sent forward in quick succession to support the 14th Mississippi. Although subjected to destructive fire, the brigade pushed its attack, broke the Federal line and drove back the defenders.
