The brigade arrived on this ground from the woods west of the north end of the Kelly field a little before noon. The 18th Ohio was placed at the Snodgrass house as support to Battery I, 4th U.S. Artillery. The 11th Michigan was on the left of the front line and the 19th Illinois on the right both facing east. Col. Stanley was wounded at noon and Col. Stoughton took command. The assaults on the position by Kershaw's brigade were continuous and persistent from one o'clock until four. About 4:30 Gracie's brigade came to the assistance of Kershaw's and about 5 P.M. carried the point of the hill in front of Stanley. At 6 o'clock the 18th Ohio was brought up and forming behind the crest charged forward and with the assistance of the other regiments retook the position. This closed the fighting on that part of the line. At 7:15 the brigade following Harker's withdrew by McFarland's Gap to Rossville. Casualties in the battle: killed 20 wounded 146 captured or missing 49 total 215.
