Grose's Brigade
Cruft's Division - Granger's Corps.
Col. William Grose.

Nov. 25th, 1863
59th Illinois - Maj. Clayton Hale,
75th Illinois - Col. John E. Bennett,
84th Illinois - Col. Louis H. Waters,
9th Indiana - Col. Isaac C. B. Suman,
36th Indiana - Maj. Gilbert Trusler,
24th Ohio - Capt. George M. Bacon.

The Brigade left Lookout Mountain with Hooker's column about 10 o'clock A.M., reaching Rossville about 4 P.M., having been delayed by the destruction of a bridge over Chattanooga Creek. It followed Osterhaus' Division into the Gap. When opposite the point of Missionary Ridge on its left it was ordered to carry that position. The Brigade advanced at 4 o'clock, the 9th Indiana leading, supported by the 59th Illinois on the left. After the center had reached the summit, two regiments of Whitaker's Brigade went forward on the left of the 2d and 3d lines on the slope. The 84th Illinois and 36th Indiana formed the second line, the 75th Illinois and 24th Ohio the third. Thus formed, with Geary's Division moving along the western and Osterhaus' along the eastern base of the Ridge, the Confederate line was steadily forced from the crest. The Brigade advanced to within half a mile of the point where the right of Johnson's Division of the assaulting lines of the center had reached the summit, and bivouacked for the night.
