The brigade about 1 p.m. was forced back to this position from the high ground north of the Dyer field before the advance of Kershaw's brigade. The latter brigade then assaulted the Union line on the right of Snodgrass Hill, and Humphrey's brigade of McLaws' division moved against Harker's line. Both were repulsed. Harker was joined by a detachment of the 44th Indiana under command of Lieut. Col. S.C. Aldrich. At 2 P.M. he was re-enforced by Aleshire's 18th Ohio battery, and about 3:30 by Hazen's brigade from the Kelly field. This position was held till the battle ended, when, at 7 o'clock this portion of the line began the withdrawal to Rossville. Effective force Sept. 19th, 1510. Casualties during the battle: killed 52; wounded 291; captured or missing 58; total 401. Percentage of loss 26.56.
