This Brigade reached Rossville from Lookout Mountain about 3 p.m. and moved through the gap with Wood's Brigade of the same Division on its right, its left passing over the point of Missionary Ridge to the north of the gap, meeting no opposition, that portion of Clayton's Brigade which held the gap having been forced back by Wood's Brigade. The Brigade then descended the eastern slope of the ridge, and at the cross roads at its base turned north. After marching about 1000 yards the division was formed in line in echelon, Williamson's Brigade on the left and Wood's on the right. Charging obliquely towards the summit the left became sharply engaged but in conjunction with the advance of Cruft's Division along the crest of the ridge from Rossville Gap and Geary's Division on the western slope the Confederate Left soon gave way. The Brigade continued to the summit capturing many prisoners and at nightfall bivouacked.
