Brannan's Division

— Thomas' Corps —

Connell's Brigade
Brannan's Division - Thomas' Corps.
Col. Morton's C. Hunter.

Sept. 20, 1863
82nd Indiana - Col. Morton C. Hunter.
17th Ohio - Lieut. Col. Durbin Ward.
31st Ohio - Col. Moses B. Walker.

Upon Longstreet's central column piercing the Union line at Brotherton's, Hood's division inclined to the right, striking Connell's brigade in front and on the right flank and forcing it to the rear in disorder. The greater part of it retreated toward Rossville. Portions of the 82nd Indiana, the 17th and 31st Ohio, in all about 160 men, with fragments of other regiments rallied on this line and fought here until the close of the battle under Col. Morton C. Hunter, Col. Moses B. Walker, 31st Ohio, and Lieut. Col. Durbin Ward, 17th Ohio, the last two being severely wounded.
