Robertson's Brigade
Hood's Division, - Longstreet's Corps.
Brigadier General Jerome B. Robertson.
September 19, 1863.

3d Arkansas, Colonel Van H. Manning.
1st Texas, Captain D. K. Rice.
4th Texas, Lieutenant Colonel John P. Bane.
5th Texas, Major J. C. Rogers.

This brigade formed as they left of Hood’s division in the morning line of battle. Law’s brigade commanded by Colonel Sheffield was on its right. Upon the advance of Law’s brigade toward the Brock field, Robertson advanced toward the Viniard house about 3 P.M. to meet the attack of Davis’ troops from that quarter. The brigade became heavily engaged, and after hard fighting gained the crest near the LaFayette road. While thus engaged Benning’s brigade came up on its right about 3:30 P.M., and assisted Robertson in holding his position and repelling several attacks of the enemy.
