Cleburne's Division

—Hill's Corps —

Polk's Brigade
Cleburne's Division - Hill's Corps
Brigadier General Lucius E. Polk
September 20, 1863.

1st Arkansas - Colonel John W. Colquitt.
3rd and 5th Confederate - Colonel J. A. Smith.
2nd Tennessee - Colonel William D. Robison.
35th Tennessee - Colonel Benjamin J. Hill.
48th Tennessee - Colonel George H. Nixon.
Calvert's (Arkansas) Battery - Lieutenant Thomas J. Key.

This Brigade, being the right of Cleburne's Division, with Wood's Brigade on its left, and two batteries of Breckinridge's Division on its right, moved forward from this line about 10 a.m. and attacked the Union breastworks on the crest. After fighting for an hour, being out of ammunition the Brigade fell back 400 yards and remained until 4 p.m. At that hour it moved to the right, formed on the left of Jackson's Brigade and, partially wheeling to the left, attacked the northeast salient of the Union line 500 yards to the right of the morning attack. In this assault the Brigade broke through the Union lines, capturing many prisoners, and pursued to the Lafayette road, reaching the latter a little before dark.
