McCook's Corps

—Major General Philip H. Sheridan —

Sheridan's Division - McCook's Corps.
Major. General Philip H. Sheridan.
September 20, 1863, 7 p.m.

1st Brigade - Colonel Silas Miller
2nd Brigade - Colonel Bernard Laiboldt
3rd Brigade - Colonel Nathan H. Walworth

After the attack upon the Division by Hindman's Troops on the high ground northwest of Widow Glenn's, Sheridan withdrew his Division to McFarland's Gap and proceeded to Rossville. Thence, under instructions from General Rosecrans, he marched at 5 p.m. through Rossville Gap to join Thomas. Reaching this point at 7 p.m. and finding Confederate forces occupying the direct line to General Thomas' position, Lieutenant M. V. Sheridan was sent by a circuitous route to communicate with that office, and returned with orders to General Sheridan to hold his position until the withdrawal of the left and center had been accomplished. That movement being completed the Division joined the army at Rossville. Total loss, September 19th and 20th; killed 151; wounded 939; missing 276.
