Inscription:
Walker’s Division.         Walker’s Corps.
Maj. Gen. W. H. T. Walker.

September 19, 1863, 10 A. M..
Ector’s Brigade. Brig. Gen. Matthew D. Ector.
Wilson’s Brigade. Col. Claudis C. Wilson.

General Gist and his brigade did not arrive from Rome until the morning of 20th, the two brigades went into action on this line about 10 A.M. Sept. 19th. Wilson was brought up shortly after 9 A.M. from the vicinity of Alexander’s house by General Forrest and at once became engaged with Brannan’s Division of Thomas’s Corps. Ector’s Brigade was next brought up by Forrest and sent in on the right of Wilson’s Brigade. Both brigades and Pegram’s Calvary Division to the right of them suffered severely and were steadily forced back towards Jay’s Mill by Baird’s and Brannan’s Divisions until 11 o’clock. At that hour Baird was struck in flank by Liddell’s Division and thrown into confusion. Shortly after noon Liddell’s troops were in turn taken in flank by Croxton’s Brigade of Brannan’s Division and the advance of Johnson’s Division, and about 3 P.M. forced Liddell’s Division together with Forrest and Walker’s forces towards Jay’s Mill, where they remained during the afternoon. The losses were severe on both sides.
