This Regiment left its position in the vicinity of Pond Spring September 19th, marched past Crawfish Springs, and about 2 p.m. took position where this monument stands. After a severe fight the enemy was repulsed, but again advanced with stronger force, the 81st retiring beyond the LaFayette Road. Finally the enemy fell back stubbornly, and the Regiment regained this position. At 3 o'clock on the morning of the 20th, the Regiment was moved near to Widow Glenn's. It was afterward ordered with its Division to the right of Wood's Division near Brotherton's. About 11 o'clock was desperately engaged, the enemy advancing in overwhelming numbers and breaking the Union line, when the Regiment, with the rest of its Division, was forced off the field.
Killed 4, Wounded 60, Missing 23, Total 87.
