Palmer's Division

—Crittenden's Corps —

Cruft's Brigade
Palmer's Division - Crittenden's Corps.
Brigadier General Charles Cruft.

September 19, 1863, 12:30 P.M., 1st Position.
31st Indiana - Colonel John T. Smith.
1st Kentucky - Lieutenant Colonel Alva R. Hadlock.
2d Kentucky - Colonel Thomas D. Sedgewick.
90th Ohio - Colonel Charles H. Rippey.
1st Ohio Light Battery B, Lieutenant Norman A. Baldwin.

This Brigade advanced as the center echelon of Palmer's Division from the vicinity of the Poe House, having Hazen's Brigade to its left and Grose's to its right. Five companies of the 1st Kentucky were absent serving as train guard. The Brigade came into action on this ground encountering the line of Cheatham's Division, and pushed forward into position south of the road to Brotherton's, where it was severely engaged for nearly two hours. About four o'clock most of the Brigade was moved to the right to the assistance of Grose's Brigade which was being forced rapidly to the rear, and a little later, being joined by a portion of Turchin's Brigade of Reynolds' Division, the advance of the enemy on this part of the field was checked. After the close of the fighting the brigade was withdrawn to the LaFayette Road near Kelly's house to bivouac. From this point it
was ordered to the support of Johnson's Division which had been attacked at dusk east of the Brock field, by Cleburne's and Cheatham's troops. After proceeding for some distance toward Johnson's lines the attack upon the latter ended, and the Brigade returned to the ground of its bivouac.
