(September 19, 1863, 1:30 P.M.)

Shortly before daylight,September 19th, Palmer's Division took position on the left of VanCleve's Division, west of the LaFayette Road and three-quarters of a mile north of Lee and Gordon's Mill, and shortly before noon was ordered to march to the assistance of the troops engaged on the left. He moved rapidly and came into action on Johnson's right at 12:30 p.m. His brigades were formed in echelon left in front. Hazen on the left came into action on this ground; Cruft was soon engaged on Hazen's right, while Grose was directed considerably to the right of Cruft. After severe fighting, Hazen was relieved at 3 p.m. by Turchin's Brigade of Reynolds' Division, and was sent back to the LaFayette Road to replenish his ammunition. Turchin and Cruft held this position until recalled to the LaFayette Road at 5 p.m. Grose's Brigade was sent to the right to assist VanCleve's two brigades, and Ed. King's Brigade of Reynold's Division was also sent forward for the same purpose by Reynolds. Grose was driven to the LaFayette
Road south of the Poe House. Hazen had reformed west of the road. The new front line, facing southeast and strengthened by several batteries, opened at short range upon the enemy's advancing line and repulsed it at 5 p.m. When Johnson and Baird were attacked at dusk by Cleburne and Cheatham, Hazen and Cruft were sent to Johnson's support, but were not needed. The entire division bivouacked on the southeast border of the Kelly field.
