Hazen's Brigade

—Palmer's Division —

Battery F, 1st Ohio Light Artillery
4 James, 2 12 PDR. Howitzers.
Hazen's Brigade, Palmer's Division, Crittenden's Corps.

September 19, 1863.
1st Lieutenant Giles J. Cockerill, Commanding.
1st Lieutenant Norval Osborn.
2d Lieutenant James N. Patton.
2d Lieutenant John Lynch (killed).

Early in the morning one section joined Grose's Brigade in a reconnoissance., but did not become engaged. About 11 a.m. the Battery followed Hazen's Brigade from near Lee and Gordon's Mill to the Poe Field, formed line of battle and advanced about half a mile, meeting the enemy in strong force.

The Battery took position on the ground in rear of Brigade, soon after noon opening on the enemy and firing at intervals for over two hours. The Brigade having been relieved, the Battery retired to the Chattanooga Road near Poe's. The enemy having driven back the right, the Battery was ordered by General Hazen to come into position obliquely across the road in front of the open space, and if possible to check him. The Battery opened a heavy fire upon him, which, with the assistance of Lieutenants Russell's and Cushing's Batteries, checked his further advance. In coming into position at this time, Lieutenant John Lynch fell fatally wounded.
The firing having ceased, the Battery moved to the Kelly Field line and bivouacked east of the field. Casualties of the day: 1 officer killed and 2 men wounded.
