Cobham's 2nd Brigade

— Geary's 2nd Division —

111th Regiment. Pennsylvania Veteran Volunteer Infantry.
Lieutenant Colonel Thomas M. Walker, Commanding
Cobham's 2nd Brigade, Geary's 2nd Division, Slocum's 12th Corps.

Recruited in Erie, Pennsylvania, and joined the Army of the Potomac. On the 28th day of October, 1863, it joined the Army of the Cumberland and was attacked near midnight at Wauhatchie Station, Tennessee by troops of Jenkins' Brigade, of Hood's Division, consisting of six small Confederate regiments under command of Colonel Bratton. This regiment assisted in holding the enemy in check while the Brigade got into line, when after three hours fighting the enemy was repulsed and returned to his camps on Lookout. On the 24th of November, 1863, the regiment was ordered to assault the rugged sides of Lookout Mountain. Under cover of the fog it marched to Light's Mills and up the mountain side until the right of the line rested under the palisades, when, facing to the front the line extending up and down the mountain, it advanced, and forcing back the enemy gained a point extending from the palisades toward and near the Craven House. Facing to the right it gained a position under the palisades, where the enemy on the top of the mountain rolled rocks, and dropped lighted shells on the men as they stood with their backs against the palisades, while they were under fire of sharpshooters, and the enemy on the works further down the mountain. Early in the morning of the 25th it was discovered that the enemy had evacuated his works and some of the adventurous ones climbed up rude ladders and gained the summit. Leaving Lookout the Regiment crossed the valley towards Missionary Ridge. Loss one killed; eight wounded.
