Crook's Brigade, Kanawha Division

Ninth Army Corps.
Crook's Brigade, Kanawha Division,

Col. George Crook, 36th Ohio Infantry, Commanding.
11th, 28th and 36th Ohio Infantry,
Simmonds' (Ky.) Battery.
September 16-17, 1862.

On the evening of September 16th Crook's Brigade formed line on the ridge east o the Antietam, and north of the Burnside Bridge.

On the morning of the 17th, preceded by the 11th Connecticut of Harland's Brigade, as skirmishers, it attempted to carry the bridge but failed. About 2 p.m. five companies of the 28th Ohio crossed the stream at a ford 250 yards north of the bridge and advanced to the rising ground east of the Sharpsburg road. The remainder of the brigade crossed the bridge and moved up the road about 350 yards, when the united brigade advanced over the high ground west of the road and supported the left of Willcox's Division. It assisted in checking A.P. Hill's advance but, the left of the line having been turned, it was obliged to withdraw to the cover of the ridge south and east of this line. This tablet marks the center of the advance position of the brigade.
