At half after 5 o’clock Reynolds’ division was moved out of the works south of the Kelly Field, encountering no opposition until it reached a point near the edge of the woods in rear of this position. It then charged forward into the McDonald field in two
lines, with Turchin’s brigade on the right and Robinson’s on the left. Passing close to the front of Govan’s and Walthall’s brigades of Liddell’s division and forcing it back across the Lafayette road. King’s (Robinson’s) brigade then moved to the left of
this road and the 75th Indiana and the 105th Ohio took position on the first ridge facing eastward toward the enemy, the 68th Indiana and 101st Indiana being detached near the Mullis house and sent by order of Gen. Thomas to Gen. Brannan at Snodgrass hill
to cover the withdrawal of that portion of the line. Turchin’s brigade formed on the left of Robinson in rear of McCook’s brigade. Willich’s brigade, moving from a point near the Kelly house, formed on Robinson’s right. Palmer’s division having been withdrawn
from the East side of the Kelly field, followed by Johnson’s and Baird’s divisions. Both the latter under severe fire, passed through Reynolds’ covering line and proceeded to Rossville by way McFarland’s gap, the enemy following only to the Lafayette road.
