Brown 's Brigade.
Stevenson's Division - Hardee's Corps.
Brig. Gen. John C. Brown.
Nov. 25, 1863
3d Tennessee - Col. Calvin H. Walker.
18th and 26th Tennessee - Lieut. Col. W. R. Butler.
32d Tennessee - Maj. Jno. P. McGuire.
45th Tenn. and 23d Tenn. Batt'n - Col. Anderson Searcy.

This Brigade withdrew from the top of Lookout at 7 p.m., Nov. 24th, reaching Tunnel Hill soon after sunrise. The 18th and 26th Tennessee which held the extreme left ten miles from the point of Lookout did not arrive till late in the afternoon. The Brigade took position with its left over the Tunnel and its right connected with the left of Smith's Brigade, occupying this position till near sunset. A heavy skirmish line, advanced at times to the Glass House, was hotly engaged during the afternoon, and captured 50 prisoners. When the enemy carried Missionary Ridge at the center the Brigade was ordered to move rapidly toward that point and report to Gen. Cheatham. Upon reaching the Latter the Brigade was formed on the left of Gen. Walthall's Brigade then a line across the Ridge a half mile south of the tunnel. At this juncture orders came to retire across the Chickamauga. Casualties: killed 2; wounded 35; missing 13.
