This corps was organized at Chattanooga after the battle of Chickamauga, by consolidating the Twentieth and Twenty-First Corps and adding a portion of the Reserve Corps. In the battle, Cruft's Division was with Hooker in the storming of Lookout Mountain on the 24th of November, and in carrying the south end of Missionary Ridge on the 25th. Wood's and Sheridan's Divisions carried Orchard Knob and Indian Hill on the afternoon of the 23d, reversed and held the enemy's works on this line until the afternoon of the 25th, when these divisions, Sheridan being on the right, formed the center of the line for the storming of Missionary Ridge. In this assault the order of divisions from right to left was as follows: Johnson's, Sheridan's, Wood's, and Biard's: the first and last named being of the Fourteenth Corps.
