No. 108 C
Hindman's Division - Polk's Corp's.
Major General Thomas C. Hindman.

September 20, 1863, 1 p.m.

Anderson's Brigade -- Brigadier General Patton Anderson.
Deas' Brigade -- Brigadier Zach C. Deas.
Manigault's Brigade -- Brigadier Arthur M. Manigault.

Anderson's and Deas' Brigades of this Division, pursuing Davis' and Sheridan's troops, reached the high ground west of this position soon after noon, the disorganized forces of the Union right wing continuing to fall back towards McFarland's Gap. These brigades moved from this position to their right and rear and joined General Johnson's Division at the Vittetoe House shortly before 3 p.m., where also Manigault's Brigade, moving forward again from the vicinity of Viniard's, rejoined the division. In the advance of this position Hindman's Division captured a large number of prisoners and guns, from Sheridan's and Davis' Divisions.

General W.H.Lytle, commanding a brigade was killed while rallying his troops a short distance south of the Dyer House.
