In the evening it moved to the Brotherton place and bivouacked. On Sunday morning, September 20, it moved with its brigade to this position where the brigade being assailed by the brigades of Adams and Stovall, was broken, and the Regiment forced southwestward toward Snodgrass Hill. It there took position in support of General Negley’s artillery, and afterwards accompanied this officer to Rossville.
