This regiment became engaged in the Battle of Chickamauga, Saturday, September 19th, 1863, about 12 M. on the enemy's line at a point about three quarters of a mile east of the LaFayette Road near the Brock Field. For two hours the battle raged with great fury, resulting in the enemy being driven from his position. In the engagement the Regiment expended an average of fifty rounds of ammunition per man. Later in the afternoon the Regiment joined in a charge against the advancing enemy and repulsed him. The Regiment bivouacked near the Kelly Field.
Early Sunday morning, September 20th, this Regiment took position on the line where this monument stands; here, during the day, the enemy made several fierce assaults, but the position was held until 5 P.M., when the Regiment was ordered to retire.
