The Battery with its Brigade moved from near the extreme left of the Army. About 4 p.m. crossed the Chickamauga at Thedford's Ford, formed line of battle near Jay's Mill about sunset, and advanced with the Brigade, passing over the troops of Liddell's Division and coming into position at a trot on this ground, on the right of Wood's and left of Polk's Brigades about dark and opened fire with canister on the enemy at sixty yards.

After about an hour's fighting the enemy retired and the battery bivouacked here for the night.
