This Brigade being the advance of Steedman's Division reached the Snodgrass House at about 1:30 P.M. As soon as it passed Brannan's right it faced the ridge and drove the Confederates from it. Its battery, upon arrival at the Snodgrass House, was sent to the left of Harker's line, and was engaged there till night. The 22nd Michigan and 89th Ohio were temporarily attached, and when the Brigade withdrew at sunset to the ridge in the rear these regiments were not notified, and with the 21st Ohio were mostly captured at dusk by Trigg's and Kelly's Confederate Brigades of Preston's Division. At 7 P.M. the Brigade withdrew to Rossville. Strength in action 2677 officers and men. Casualties: Killed 154; Wounded 654; Captured or Missing 518; Total 1326. Percentage of loss 49.5.
