Report of Brig.-Gen. Gist, commanding division.

headquarter Gist's brigade, near Chattanooga, Tenn., October 14, 1863.
Captain J. B. Cumming, Assistant Adjutant-General:
Captain: I have the honor to submit the following report of the participation of the troops under my command in the battle of Chickamauga on Sunday, the twentieth of September last:

Being ordered with my brigade-consisting of the Fourth Georgia volunteers, Colonel P. H. Colquitt commanding; the Twenty-fourth South Carolina volunteers, Colonel C. H. Stevens commanding; the Sixth South Carolina volunteers, Colonel James McCullough commanding; the Eighth Georgia battalion of volunteers, Lieutenant-Colonel L. Napier commanding, and Ferguson's light battery, Lieutenant Beauregard commanding — to Rome, Georgia, upon detached service, I did not engage in the affairs of the eighteenth and nineteenth of September, with the other troops of the reserve corps of Major-General W. H. T. Walker. On the afternoon of Thursday, the seventeenth of September, I received orders from the Colonel commanding to report, with my brigade, at Ringgold, Georgia, and was further informed that transportation by rail would be afforded me. I left Rome the next morning, upon the arrival of the trains, with the Twenty-fourth South Carolina volunteers, Eighth Georgia battalion, three companies of the Fourth Georgia volunteers, and Ferguson's battery, there not being cars sufficient for the remainder of the command. Upon reaching Kingston, I urged the transportation agent to send forward additional cars for that portion of the brigade still at Rome, and he assured me that he would do so promptly. I subsequently telegraphed him from Ringgold to hasten on the rest of the command. The result was that the Sixteenth. South Carolina volunteers and my battery did not join me until the morning of the twenty-third
