Indiana's Tribute

Eighty-Second Regiment Infantry.
Colonel Morton C. Hunter, Commanding.
First Brigade (Connell).
Third Division (Brannan).
Fourteenth Corps (Thomas).

This Regiment, Colonel Morton C. Hunter, Commanding, reached the front September 19th, at 11 A.M., and supported Church's Battery which had been sent up to VanDerveer's line. At night it was moved to the extreme right of the corps.
On the morning of September 20th, it occuried the right of the second line of the brigade, east of the Dyer House and northwest of Brotherton House.
When the front line was driven from the works by Longstreet's fierce attack, just before noon, Colonel Hunter ordered the 82nd to charge, which it did in gallant style, recapturing and holding the works, but being immediately outflanked and almost surrounded, it fell back fighting until it reached the site of this monument at a little after 12 M.
The 82nd was the first regiment of Brannan's Division that formed a line of battle on Snodgrass Hill, which line was firmly held against all assaults until night put an end to the battle.
Killed 20; Wounded 68; Missing 23.
