Brannan's Division

— Thomas' Corps —

Connell's Brigade.
Brannan's Division ... Thomas' Corps.
Colonel John M. Connell.

September 20, 1863, 11a.m.
82nd Indiana - Colonel Morton C. Hunter.
17th Ohio - Lieutenant Colonel Durbin Ward.
31st Ohio - Lieutenant Colonel Frederick W. Lister.
38th Ohio - Colonel Edward H. Phelps.
1st Michigan
Light Battery D - Captain Josiah W. Church

Except the 38th Ohio, which was on detached service, this brigade was attacked here in front and on its right flank about 11 a.m. The three brigades in the line immediately on its right had been ordered to the support of the Union line still farther to the left, and it was while the last of these was moving across the gap thus created, that the Confederates delivered their attack. After a short but severe engagement with Hood's division the brigade gave way and was forced to the rear in confusion, part rallying on Snodgrass Hill, the greater part going to Rossville. The battery lost five of its six guns.
