Finley's (Florida) Brigade
Breckinridge's (Bate's) Division - Breckinridge's Corps.
Brig. Gen. Jesse J. Finley.
Nov. 25, 1863, 5 P.M.

1st and 3rd Florida - Capt. W. T. Saxon.
4th Florida - Lieut. Col. E. Badger.
6th Florida - Lieut. Col. A. D. McLean.
7th Florida - Lieut. Col. Tillman Ingram
1st Florida Cav. (Dismounted) - Col. G. T. Maxwell.

Except the 1st Florida Dismounted Cavalry and 4th Florida Infantry, this Brigade was brought up from the trenches early the night of Nov. 24th and formed on the left of Bate's (Tyler's) Brigade. Subsequently the 7th Florida, Lieut. Col. Ingram was sent back to the trenches with orders to hold them at all hazards. At 1 P.M. the line was moved to the right until the left of the Brigade rested in the depression to the right of Gen. Bragg's Headquarters. Adams' (Gibson's) Brigade of Stewart's Division was on its left. Upon the advance of the enemy Reynold's Brigade of Buckner's Division in retiring hastily from the trenches at the foot of the ridge, threw the left of Finley's line into temporary confusion. The Brigades of Finley and Bate fought with persistence until enfiladed by the enemy who had gained the crest both on the right and the left. Bate then withdrew his two brigades to the next ridge east where Finley's Brigade held a second line till after dark covering the general retreat of the center and left.
