This Brigade was brought up from General Polk's Headquarters near Dr. Anderson's arriving a short time after the action began, and before the arrival of infantry re-enforcements. It went into position on the right of Davidson's Brigade and attacked, dismounted, the front VanDerveer's Brigade of Brannan's Division, and was repulsed.

Here it was re-enforced on the left by Ector's Infantry Brigade of Walker's Division. It next formed across the Ringgold Road to attack Van Derveer's left flank, but finding that thrown back to meet him, Dibrell moved still further to the north into the ravine beyond the Ringgold Road, thence turning westwardly the Brigade gained Brannan's rear
and advanced toward VanDerveer's position. That Brigade, had, however, been rapidly disposed to meet this movement, and when Dibrell advanced to attack it he found it facing him along the crest above. After a very severe engagement he was forced to retire. The fighting ended on this portion of the field about 1 p.m.
