—September 27, 1864, 1:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. —Skirmishes between Clark's rebel brigade and the Union's 14th Iowa were fought on Shepherd Mt. on the second day. Prior to the assault on Ft. Davidson two Rebel cannons were placed on the mountain, but, because of the accurate fire from Union artillery in the fort, they were ineffectual. During the assault on the fort Clark's brigade anchored the left wing of the Confederate army at the base of Shepherd Mountain.
