Pillow's Division

Brigadier General
Gideon J. Pillow's Division
Colonel William E. Baldwin's Brigade
26th Tennessee, Colonel John M. Lillard
26th Mississippi, Colonel Arthur E. Reynolds

Baldwin's command, being part of the 2d Brigade of General Buckner's Division, arrived at Dover from Cumberland City about 1 a.m., February 13, 1862. General Pillow detached this command from Buckner's Division and at daylight, February 13, moved it to the extreme left of the line. The brigade occupied its position, about 1000 yards east of this point, with the 26th Mississippi in the trenches and the 26th Tennessee in support.

Reinforced by the 20th Mississippi, Major William M Brown, the brigade received orders from General Pillow, about noon, February 14, to form in the open field to the left and rear of its trenches for an attack against the Federal line. The brigade formed in column of platoons along the road in the woods, about 200 yards beyond the left of the line of trenches, the 26th Mississippi in the lead, followed by the 26th Tennessee, the 20th Mississippi bringing up the rear. The brigade had proceeded not more than one-quarter of a mile when General Pillow ordered a countermarch and the troops returned to their former positions in the line.
