The New York Infantry Regiments of Ireland's Brigade, lying at Stone Railroad depot, were ordered on the double quick to this point during the battle, about 10:30 A.M., November 27, 1863. The advance was made in good order under a heavy artillery and musketry fire. The line held by this Brigade reached from the railroad to East Chickamauga Creek. The firing was severe on both sides, but the enemy finally withdrew, about 1 P.M.

Skirmishers of the Brigade commanded by Captain Lewis R. Stegman, 102nd New York, advanced and cleared the gap in front, gaining possession of the two railroad bridges and a mill.
