Rocky Face Ridge - Buzzard's Roost Gap - 14th Army Corps
A Virtual Cemetery created by: Janet
Description: 1st Division
1st Brigade
May 8.The brigade moved forward in line of battle through the valley and over a range of hills lying on west side of the Gordon Spring road, and took position on a ridge about a half mile southwest of Buzzard Roost. Remained in this position until about 10.30 a.m., when the brigade was moved back to the first range of hills, where it lay in line until about 5.30 p.m., when it moved forward to the first position and encamped for the night. May 9. Received orders to finish a reconnaissance which had been begun by Colonel Woods brigade, Butterfields division, around the point of Chattoogata Mountain, south side of the gap. Moved brigade forward, crossing Mill Creek. Relieved Colonel Wood's brigade. Placed the Eighty-eighth Indiana and One hundred and fourth Illinois into position along the spur extending from the point of the mountain to the gap and overlooking the enemy's works in front. The Forty-second Indiana and the Fifteenth Kentucky were then pushed up the mountain side, with orders to go as far as possible around the point. The Thirty-third Ohio and Twenty-first Wisconsin were moved along the western base, and then toward the summit of the mountain. The Forty-second Indiana advanced some considerable distance around the point, skirmishing with the enemy with some loss until farther progress was prevented by a rebel battery, which opened on the line from the point of Rocky Face Ridge, and also by a fire from our own artillery in the rear. Our line was being pressed, and the Second Ohio was moved up to support. Both regiments were subsequently withdrawn. The Fifteenth Kentucky, Thirty-third Ohio, and Twenty-first Wisconsin having also been withdrawn without any important development, the brigade encamped along the base for the night. May 10. The brigade remained in its position until about 2 p.m., when two companies of the Second Ohio were sent forward, with orders to skirmish as far as possible around the point of the mountain. This force, supported by a detachment from the Thirty-seventh Indiana, advanced steadily, driving the enemy's skirmishers into rifle-pits. They were then withdrawn and the brigade remained in its position until 3 a.m. -from report No. 92. Journal of the First Brigade. HDQRS.
