Close of the Battle
Sept. 20, 1863, 7.30 P.M.
At dusk the right of Brannan's line rested to the left of this position near the monument of the 35th Ohio facing southeast. The right of Kelly's Brigade of Preston's Division being discovered to the right-rear of that position, the 35th Ohio was hastily brought to this ground to confront it, facing southwest. Trigg's Brigade of Preston's Division was then discovered half way down the slope to the right of this tablet. The 35th was thereupon moved still further to the right and formed on a curved line to face both Kelly's and Trigg's positions. At this juncture the 9th Indiana was reported by Gen. Brannan to the Commander of the 35th Ohio to re-enforce his line. A movement of the Confederates called out a volley which was responded to by them and was then followed by their withdrawal. This was the last firing of the battle. The 68th Indiana, Captain Edmund Finn, and the 101st Indiana, Maj. George W. Steele both under the command of lieutant Colonel Thomas Doan of the 101st, were soon reported to the commander of the 35th Ohio, and were posted by him along the crest to the right of this position to cover the withdrawal, the 101st being to the extreme right. VanDerveer's Brigade with the 9th Indiana was then withdrawn by regiments from left to right, and after a short interval the 68th and 101st Indiana, in the order named, followed, covering the movement.
