The brigade crossed the Chickamauga at Dalton’s Ford at daylight and about 8 o’clock formed line of battle northeast of the ford about 300 yards in rear of Gracie’s brigade. Here the brigade was subjected to a brisk fire from the enemys batteries. About
noon the brigade moved to the right several hundred yards and formed line in this position facing west and remained during the day and night, being occasionally shell. About 7 o’clock on the morning of the 20th the brigade was moved by the left flank and posted
as a support to three batteries of Major Leyden’s Battalion of artillery (in position near the present Hall’s Ford tower ), and threw out skirmishers. About 1 P.M., leaving the 65th Georgia as a support to the batteries, the brigade moved by the right flank
in rear of Gracie’s brigade to the conflict.
