Aided by a few shots from Captain Henry Hescock's battery, we soon drove the intruders from our camp in about the same disorder in which they had broken in on us. By this time Colonel Hatch and Colonel Albert L. Lee had mounted two battalions each, and I moved them out at a lively paceequirement. These troops were drawn from all sections in the West where it was thought they could be spared, and among others I was ordered to conduct thither — to Louisville or Cincinnati, as subsequent developments might demand — my regiment, Hescock's battery, the Second and Fifteenth Missouri, and the Thirtysixth and Forty-fourth Illinois regiments of infantry, known as the Pea Ridge brigade. With this column I marched back to Corinth on the 6th of September, 1862, for the purpose of gett

Davis's division was placed in position on my right, his troops thrown somewhat to the rear, so that his line formed nearly a right angle with mine, while Johnson's division formed in a very exposed position on the right of Davis, prolonging the general line just across the Franklin pike. The centre, under Thomas, had already formed to my left, the right of Negley's divisio
