September 20th, moved to the left and after frequent moves and considerable fighting, including one successful charge led by Colonel Barnes, it reached this position where it resisted several determined assaults of the enemy. About sunset it withdrew under fire to the woods west of the LaFayette Road, and thence to Rossville.
