28th Alabama Regiment
Manigault's Brigade, (Hindman) Anderson Division
Hardee's Corps
Major W. L. Butler, Commanding
November 23, 1863, 2 p.m.

The regiment occupied the crest of the elevated knoll southeast of this position, as support to the Confederate picket line, deployed in advance of this outpost about 2 P.M. Nov. 23rd, when Wood's Division with an effective force of over 5,000, as the center of the advance of the enemy moved rapidly forward from Fort Wood slope, drove in the skirmish line to this position, dispersed the outpost holding Orchard Knob and threatened this portion of the line from flank and rear, while the regiment was fiercely engaged with Hazen's Brigade in front, in a bayonet encounter.

Outflanked and overwhelmed, a large portion of the regiment was captured, but not till it had inflicted a loss on Hazen's Brigade alone. It killed and wounded 167, the regiment lost its colors and many officers and men captured. Killed and wounded not reported.
