Nov. 25th, 1863. Noon

The battery occupied a position over the railroad tunnel during the fighting of the morning, and with its rapid and accurate firing aided in keeping its front clear of the assaulting lines of the enemy.

About noon, by order of Gen. Cleburne the battery held this position with Lieut. Key in command of his own and a section of Sweet's Battery; without epaulments or other shelter taking an active part in repulsing the repeated and persistent assaults of the enemy, standing to their post, with the enemy nearly at the muzzles of their pieces.

Gen. Cleburne says the batteries at this point were bravely fought and did great execution, After dark the battery with its battalion withdrew unmolested across the Chickamauga.

Casualties: No guns or material; men and horses not reported.
