Preston's Division.

— Buckner's Corps. —

Kelly's Brigade.
Preston's Division. - Buckner's Corps.
Col. John H. Kelly.
Sept. 20, 1863, 6:30 P.M.
65th Georgia, - Col. R.H. Moore.
5th Kentucky, - Col. Hiram Hawkins.
58th North Carolina, - Col. John B. Palmer.
63d Virginia, - Maj. James M. French.
Wolihin's Georgia Battery, - Capt. Andrew M. Wolihin.

While this Brigade with the exception of the 65th Georgia left at Hall's Ford was assaulting on the front, Trigg's brigade had crossed the ridge to the left of Kelly upon the ground from which Steedman's Division had withdrawn at sunset and gained the rear of the troops still remaining in front of Kelly. A charge by the latter at dusk drove the right of three Union regiments which had operated with the left of Steedman's Division but had not received notice to withdraw over the crest and most of them were captured between the lines of Kelly and Trigg.
