Nov. 25th, 1863, 4 P.M.
The battery came into position in rear of Adams' Brigade of Stewart's Div. after the general advance of the enemy had commenced about 3:45 P.M., and without defensive works of any character, opened the entire battery on the rapidly approaching lines, and continued to fire with great celerity and destructive effect, aided in temporarily checking the advance of the troops in its front till the ridge had been carried on the right and the enemy were rapidly approaching on that flank. Under these conditions, and with the enemy in front dangerously near the guns, and no reasonable prospect of checking his advance, the battery to avoid capture, withdrew with the loss of a few men and horses, but no guns, caissons or material.
