November 23rd a portion of Manigault's Brigade held Orchard Knob and the low rocky ridge to the south of it. Upon the advance of the enemy in force the 28th Alabama, misunderstanding its orders to be, to hold its position at all hazards, remained in rifle-pits fighting and 146 officers and men and the colors were captured. During the 24th November the front rank of the brigade occupied the works at the foot of the Ridge, and on the afternoon of the 25th fell back before the Union advance and joined the rear rank on the crest of the Ridge. Deas' Brigade was on its right, and Anderson's (Tucker's) on its left. In the general assault it was attacked by the left of Wood's Division. Its position being carried it retreated with its division to Chickamauga, crossing by Shallowford Road.
