This Regiment in the morning of September 19th, 1863, marched with its Brigade from the right of the Union Army to the support of General Thomas. Reached the field about 10 a.m., and at once became engaged with the enemy about one fourth of a mile in rear of this position, from which line this regiment, with other regiments of the Brigade, charged the enemy and drove him from the line on which this monument stands. In the charge this regiment captured two pieces of artillery, three caissons, and many prisoners. Sunday, September 20th, in the afternoon, moved to the left wing of the Union Army, east of Kelly Field, where the Regiment with other troops charged the advancing enemy and drove him back around the Union left.
At 5 p.m. withdrew from the field under orders.
