Inscription. Reynolds' Division of the XIV Corps forced Hoover's Gap, driving a task force of Bate's & Bushrod Johnson's Brigades back to Fairfield, 5 mi. S.W., whence it had come. The XIV Corps reunited with other units of Rosecrans' army at Manchester, thus getting in the Confederate rear and forcing Bragg's withdrawal to Chattanooga.
