Reynold's Division ......... Thomas' Corps.
Major General Joseph J. Reynolds.

September 20th, 1863, until 5:30 P.M.
1st Brigade - Colonel John T. Wilder. (Mounted Infantry Detached.)
2d Brigade - Colonel Edward A. King, Colonel Milton S. Robinson.
3d Brigade - Brigadier General John B. Turchin.

This Division, early in the morning of the 20th of September, formed on the right of Palmer's Division, prolonging the Union line to and beyond the LaFayette Road south of Kelly's. Turchin's Brigade formed the left of the Division and E. A. King's, posted west of the road, formed its right. These Brigades were in two lines and their fronts were protected by slight breastworks of rails, logs, and stones.


Inscription on the rear of the monument:

Soon after 10 o'clock Stewart's Division attacked Brannan's and Reynolds' fronts with great vigor, but was repulsed after severe fighting at close range with great loss, and were reformed upon the ground from which it first advanced. At 11 A.M. Longstreet's columns of three Divisions pierced the Union line at the Brotherton House where a gap had been left by the withdrawal of Wood's Division, and after stubborn fighting Brannan was driven away from Reynold's right. Reynolds then refused King's Brigade on his right. His line was not again attacked by infantry. At 5:30 P.M. under orders from General Thomas, the Division was withdrawn without molestation by column of brigades moving northward on each side of the LaFayette Road.
