Dibrell's Brigade

—Armstrong's Division —

Huggins' Tennessee Battery.
2 6 Pounders, 2 12 Pounder Howitzers.
Dibrell's Brigade, Armstrong's Division, Forrest's Corps.
September 20, 1863.
Captain A. L. Huggins, Commanding.
1st Lieutenant Edwin H. Douglas.
2d Lieutenant Nat. Baxter.
2d Lieutenant D. G. Grudup.


The Battery occupied a position near and north of the Reed's Bridge road and west of this glade, on the right of Breckinridge's Division, and was actively engaged soon after noon in shelling the advance of General Granger's Corps, going to the support of General Thomas. McCook's Brigade of this force was detained to face the Confederates while the other two after some delay proceeded rapidly to join Thomas on Snodgrass Hill. Some time after Granger's column had passed, the Battery moved to the front, but before it could come into action it was compelled to retire to its original position by the approach of the enemy who was withdrawing from the Kelly field line toward McFarland's Gap. The enemy having cleared the Chattanooga Road in the vicinity of McDonald's continued his withdrawal, under fire of a line of 14 guns from near this position, the fire being maintained until about sunset when the battle on this flank terminated. Casualties not given.
