"On the 15th of June the [2nd] brigade moved with the [3rd] division [20th Army Corps], and crossing the small stream just below Kemp's Mill, advanced on the road toward Gilgal Church, in a south-easterly direction, leaving Lost Mountain to the right and west a mile and a half, and halted near to a line of the enemy's works just abandoned upon the left of the road, and here formed in line of battle in rear of the First Brigade, the Twenty-third Corps being on the right of our division and the remainder of the Twentieth Corps on the left."
"The Second Brigade was ordered to advance in support of the First Brigade in line of battle, the Nineteenth Michigan, Major Griffin, on the right, on its left the Eighty-fifth Indiana, Colonel Baird, the Thirty-third Indiana, Major Miller, on its left, and the Twenty-second Wisconsin, Colonel Utley, on the left."
"The men labored with untiring patience at the earth-works, and by morning built a strong line in 200 yards of the rebel lines and under fire of musketry and artillery. On the 16th of June the brigade remained in the same camp... the enemy in many places having a fatal range upon us... The loss of the brigade this day was 4 killed and 24 wounded." -JOHN COBURN, Colonel Thirty-third Indiana, Comdg. Brigade
