King's Brigade (Detachment).
Reynold's Division - Thomas' Corps.
Lieut. Col. Thomas Doan.

September 20, 1863. 7 P.M.
68th Indiana - Capt. Edmund Finn.
101st Indiana - Maj. George W. Steele.

These two regiments were detached from their Brigade by order of Gen. Thomas, when Reynolds' Division in the withdrawal from the Kelly field had reached the vicinity of the Mullis house on the McFarland Gap road and ordered to report to Gen. Brannan at the Snodgrass house to cover the withdrawal of his portion of the line. Gen. Brannan reported them about 7 o'clock to the Commanding Officer of the 35th Ohio, then holding the right of VanDerveer's Brigade, and they were posted upon this line to the right of the 35th and its supporting line the 9th Indiana. The withdrawal of Brannan's line began soon after 7 o'clock. The movement was covered by the 68th and 101st Indiana. These regiments, being supplied with a limited amount of ammunition, remained, under instructions, until the rest of the line was fairly started for McFarland's Gap, and then followed as its rear guard.
