Hood's Division

—Brigadier General Bushrod R. Johnson —

Johnson's Provisional Division
Hood's Corps
Brigadier General Bushrod R. Johnson
September 18th, 1863, 4 P.M.

Gregg's Brigade - Brigadier General John Gregg
McNair's Brigade - Brigadier General Evander McNair
Johnson's Brigade - Colonel John S. Fulton

This Division moved from Ringgold at 5 A.M. September 18th towards Leet's Tanyard but was soon ordered to countermarch and proceed on the road from Ringgold to Reed's Bridge, force a crossing of the Chickamauga, and move toward the Union left then at Lee and Gordon's Mill. Robertson's Brigade of Hood's Division was attached to the column for this movement. General Forrest joined the column with his escort and R. M. Marin's detachment of cavalry. Minty's Brigade of Union Cavalry was encountered at Pea Vine Creek about 11 A.M., and, by its resistance compelled a deployment of the enemy's column. At 3 P.M. the Confederate Infantry forced a crossing at Reed's Bridge and General Forrest, who had been joined by Pegram's Division of Cavalry, crossed at Fowler's Ford a short distance above. At 4 P.M. General Johnson's forces advanced to Jay's Mill where General Hood arrived and took command. The column then proceeded toward Lee and Gordon's Mill via Alexander's house, and after some sharp skirmishing with Minty's Cavalry, Wilder's
Brigade of Mounted Infantry, and part of Dick's Brigade of Infantry from Van Cleve's Division. Hood's Column deployed and bivouacked in the woods about 800 yards east of Viniard's house in close contact with the Union forces.
