Walthall's Brigade

— Liddell's Division —

Fowler's Alabama Battery.
4 Napoleons.
Walthall's Brigade, Liddell's Division, Walker's Corps.

September 19, 1863.

Captain William H. Fowler, Commanding.
1st Lieut. John Phelan.
1st Lieut. Robert Perrin.
2d Lieut. N. Venable.
2d Lieut. William Dailey

The battery followed the brigade during the morning of the 19th: was under fire but not then engaged. About 3:30 P.M. the battery came into position on this ground in rear of the division and opened fire on the battery of the enemy to the left, causing it to remove hastily. At this time one section under Lieut. Phelan was sent forward in support of the brigade, then engaging the enemy. This section mistaking an Arkansas Regiment for one of the brigade, went into the fight with it, but meeting an overwhelming force of the enemy the infantry was compelled to retire. All the horses of the two pieces were killed or wounded and many of cannoneers and drivers of the section were killed or wounded at their post fighting the guns to the last extremity: one piece was brought off with wounded horses, the other was captured by the enemy but subsequently recovered.
