Crittenden's Corps

—Brigadier General Horatio P. Van Cleve —

Van Cleve's Division - Crittenden's Corps.
Brigadier General Horatio P. Van Cleve.
September 20th, 1863.

1st Brigade - Brigadier General Samuel Beatty.
2nd Brigade - Colonel George F. Dick.
3rd Brigade - Colonel Sidney M. Barnes.

Beatty's and Dick's Brigades of this division bivouacked on the slope west of this position and on the left of General Wood's Division. At 9 o'clock Barnes' Brigade, which had rejoined Van Cleve from Viniard's was dispatched to the front with Wood's troops. With his two remaining brigades Van Cleve was soon after ordered to the hill next east of this position, and immediately thereafter was dispatched toward the front at Poe's house but after proceeding a short distance was ordered farther to the left to report to General Thomas. Upon reaching the rear of Brannan's division with Dick's Brigade in advance and Beatty's following both became involved in the break near that point. Barnes' Brigade was dispatched to the extreme left when Wood began his withdrawal from the vicinity of Brotherton's, and fought upon Baird's line until the close of the battle. The total loses for the two days were: killed 56; wounded 604; missing 302; total 962. Total strength in action 4082; percentage of loss 23.5.
