Granger's Corps.

— Maj. Gen. Philip Sheridan —

No. 6...........................................................................U.
Sheridan's Division - Granger's Corps.
Maj. Gen. Philip H. Sheridan.
Nov. 25, 1863, P.M.
1st Brigade - Col. Francis T. Sherman.
2d Brigade - Brig. Gen. George D. Wagner.
3d Brigade - Col. Charles G. Harker.

On the morning of Nov. 25th Gen. Sheridan advanced his line to the right of and in prolongation of the line of Wood's Division of Granger's Corps which occupied Orchard's Knob. Wagner's Brigade was on the left next to Wood, Harker's next on the right, each in two lines. Sherman held the right of the Division formed in three lines, of three regiments each, the left of his Brigade resting on the Moore Road (now Montgomery Avenue). At 3:15 the Division moved forward in the general assault of the Army of the Cumberland upon the ridge, carried the earthworks at its base, and halted there according to orders, but began almost immediately to ascend the slope in obedience to further orders from Gen. Granger. The center of the Division reached the crest at Bragg's Headquarters in the face of very persistent opposition from Breckinridge's Division commanded by Brig. Gen. W.B. Bate. It continued to press the retreating enemy toward Chickamauga Station until dark.
