This Brigade, being the right of the front line of Johnson's Division, with Baldwin's Brigade on its left and Dodge's in reserve, advanced from the Kelly field about noon. It soon struck the right of Cheatham's Division advancing to the assistance of Walker's Corps and in pursuit of Croxton's Brigade, which had forced Liddell's Division to retire by its right, and after two hours of heavy fighting first with Jackson's Brigade of Cheatham's Division and subsequently with Maney's which relieved it, forced their line back, and occupied this position.
Baldwin's Brigade was on its left, and Dodge's on its right. At dark Cleburne's Division with part of Cheatham's attacked the whole line and a hot fight continued in the darkness for an hour.
The Brigade the withdrew with its Division to the Kelly field and bivouacked.
