His first brigade, commanded by Colonel Charles Cruft, comprised the Thirty-first and Forty-on, finding himself unoccupied in front, moved Cruft's brigade up to the right, ill support of the retreating Federals. Cruft's brigade was composed of four regiments — the Thirty-first Indiana, Liopelessly involved in the crowd of fugitives. Cruft bore the brunt of battle for some time; but, alernand's whole division in full retreat, with Cruft also falling back, he threw forward Thayer's sothers, rallied on Thayer's brigade, and, with Cruft's brigade and these fresh troops, interposed a the Fifty-seventh Illinois, Colonel Baldwin.

ntest fierce. Chalmers pushed forward with considerable success; General Johnston had Bowen's brigade deployed, and it advanced with energy. Statham's brigade impinged upon what was an angle in the Federal line, where the Northerners were collected in heavy masses. The locality was probably that held by Hurlbut's brigades, and they opposed a desperate defense to every forward movement. The severe pressure on their left had called the Northern troops to this point, and we find acting Brigadier-General Cruft, after having repulsed four assaults farther to the right, strengthening it. Sweeney also reinforced Hurlbut with three regiments. There had been four hours of heavy fighting, during which the Federal centre had not been moved. The right had been broken; its left was forced back and doubled up on itself; and Hurlbut had more than once fallen back, retiring his left, in order to correct his alignment. But there his command stood, dealing slaughter on every attempt at advance

Colonel Cruft was put in line to support them on the right. Colonel Ross, with his regiments, the 17th anis supports, Colonel Smith led them down into a broad hollow, and catching sight of the advance, Cruft and Ross also moved forward. As the two regiments began the climb, the 8th Missouri slightly inhey advanced. The defenders gave way.

According to the official reports the Union force engaged consisted of Manson's and Cruft's brigades, eight regiments and two detachments of infantry, one regiment and a battalion of cavalry and two batteries of artillery, all new troops who had only been mustered into service a few days.

o'clock to up and at ‘em, they came forward like a pack of hounds in full cry. Cruft recoiled from the attack in the open field between the Round Forest and the wood, falling back, met the charge at the time that Negley moved to the rear. Now Cruft's right was in the air and exposed to attack by Donelson following Negley. CruCruft repulsed Chalmers in his front, but Donelson's brigade, pouring to his rear, threatened to envelop him. Grose, from his position in reserve, faced to the right, and soon after to the rear, and bore back the charging columns, enabling Cruft to withdraw.

Mendenhall did not receive adequate recognition in the report of General Rosecrans. The fact being that the enemy were repulsed and flying in confusion before the terrific guns of my chief-of-artillery, Major John Mendenhall, and were only pursued by Negley and Morton, as they were also pursued by portions of my command under Cruft, Hazen, Grose, and a part of General Jefferson C. Davis's command.--T. L. C. As to our general's plan of battle, I don't remember that I was ever advised of it. The battle was fought according to the plan of General Bragg. Indeed, our uniform experience was — at Perry-ville, at Stone's River, at Chickamauga — that whenever we went to attack Bragg we were attacked by him, and so our plan had to be extemporized. I knew Bragg. His reputation was that of a martinet. He was a severe disci
