—Brigadier General John W. Geary —

Geary's Division - Slocum's Corps
Brigadier General John W. Geary
November 25, 1863, 3:30 p.m.

1st Brigade - Colonel William R. Creighton
2nd Brigade - Colonel George A. Cobham, Jr.
3rd Brigade - Colonel David Ireland

This Division being the rear of Hooker's column reached Rossville about 3:30 p.m., and with five batteries under Major John A. Reynolds, Chief of Artillery, moved northward along the western base of Missionary Ridge. Creighton's Brigade led, followed by Cobham's, both marched in column of regiments, and followed by Ireland's in support of the artillery. After marching nearly a mile, the Division formed in column of brigades, Creighton's in the first line, Cobham's forming the second, and Ireland still supporting the artillery. With this formation the Division covered by the fire of the batteries, moved obliquely up the ridge toward the point some three quarters of a mile north, where the right of Palmer's Corps had effected a lodgement. It soon faced fully towards the crest and scaled it about 6 p.m.
