Martin's Artillery Battalion -Walker's Division

— Hardee's Corps —

Howell's Georgia Battery.

Maj. Robert Martin's Artillery Battalion.
Walker's Division, Hardee's Corps.
Nov 24th, 1863, 11 A.M.
Capt. Evan P. Howell, Commanding.
1st Lieut. W.C. Robson.
2nd Lieut. T.J. Gilmore.
2nd Lieut. R.T. Gibson.

By order of Captain Howell, commanding the battery, the section of 6-pdr. guns, under Lieut. R.T. Gibson, was placed in position on this ground November 16th, 1863, and the horses returned to the foot of the mountain. During the engagement of the 24th the men were in their places ready for action, but were not able to fire as Walthall's Brigade was engaged with the enemy in advance of the guns. Seeing the supporting line retiring rapidly in disorder, pursued by the enemy in overwhelming numbers and no possibility of removing the guns or repulsing the enemy, the men were marched off leaving the guns. Casualties. None.
