Georgia. Union Major-General William Starke Rosecrans continued to be concerned for his precarious position and his exposed lines of communications to Chattanooga. Major-General George Henry Thomas’ XIV Corps left Pond Spring and marched across the rear of Major-General Thomas Leonidas Crittenden’s XXI Corps around and north of Lee and Gordon’s Mill, to extend the army’s left flank by a further two miles. Major-General Alexander McDowell McCook’s XX Corps once again shifted its position to occupy Thomas’ vacant camps at Pond Spring. The Reserve Corps still held the vital Rossville Gap near Chattanooga.

By dawn, two of Thomas’ Union divisions under Brigadier-General Absalom Baird and Brigadier-General John Milton Brannan had reached the intersection of the Lafayette Road and the road leading east to Reed’s Bridge. The other two divisions of XIV Corps had not yet arrived (Major-General James Scott Negley was at Crawfish Springs and Major-General Joseph Jones Reynolds was still on the march northwards). However, these two leading divisions were now west of McFarland’s Gap which was only two miles south of Rossville. The Union left flank now extended beyond the Confederate right rather than, as Bragg continued to believe, extending in the opposite direction.

The Union redeployment was not properly detected by the Confederates and Bragg’s plan of attack was becoming increasingly out of line with the actual Union positions. During the morning the first reinforcements from the Army of Northern Virginia arrived at Catoosa Station near Ringgold. Major-General John Bell Hood accompanied the first three brigades that joined the army at about 4 pm; in all, five brigades would arrive from Virginia in time to join the impending fight at Chickamauga. Although not numerically strong, their high morale and experience would prove decisive. Major-General Bushrod Tyler Johnson’s division from Mississippi was detached from Lieutenant-General Leonidas Polk’s Corps and attached temporarily to Lieutenant-General James Longstreet’s Corps to raise its strength to three divisions, alongside the divisions of Hood and Major-General Lafayette McLaws. McLaws was still bringing forward his infantry and artillery from Atlanta. Lieutenant-General Leonidas Polk‘s I Corps now comprised Major-General Benjamin Franklin Cheatham’s division and Major-General Thomas Carmichael Hindman’s division. The II Corps of Lieutenant-General Daniel Harvey Hill had the divisions of Major-General Patrick Ronayne Cleburne and of Major-General John Cabell Breckinridge. Wheeler’s Cavalry Corps was commanded by Major-General Joseph Wheeler and had two divisions under Brigadier-General John Archibald Wharton and Brigadier-General William Thompson Martin.

West Chickamauga Creek, Georgia. Despite the admonition of Confederate General Braxton Bragg to be rapid and prompt in movement, the active Union cavalry scouts, narrow roads and difficult terrain delayed the advance of his army. Bragg specified four crossing points, from north to south: Major-General Bushrod Tyler Johnson’s division would go across Chickamauga Creek at Reed’s Bridge, Walker’s Reserve Corps at Alexander’s Bridge, Buckner’s Corps at Thedford’s Ford, and Polk’s Corps at Dalton’s Ford. Hill’s Corps would anchor the army’s left flank and the cavalry under Brigadier-General Nathan Bedford Forrest and Wheeler would cover Bragg’s right and left flanks, respectively.

Johnson’s division took the wrong road from Ringgold but eventually headed west along the Reed’s Bridge Road. At 7 am, Johnson’s division encountered cavalry pickets from Colonel Robert H G Minty’s Union brigade, guarding the approach to Reed’s Bridge. Being heavily outnumbered, Minty’s men eventually withdrew across the bridge after being pressured by elements of Forrest’s cavalry, but they could not destroy the bridge to prevent Johnson’s men from crossing. At 4.30 pm, when Johnson had reached Jay’s Mill, Hood arrived from the railroad station at Catoosa with three Confederate brigades and took command of the column. He ordered Johnson to use the Jay’s Mill Road instead of the Brotherton Road, as Johnson had intended.

At Alexander’s Bridge to the south, Union Colonel John Thomas Wilder’s mounted infantry brigade defended the crossing against the approach of Walker’s Corps. Armed with Spencer repeating rifles and Captain Lilly’s four guns of the 18th Indiana Battery, Wilder was able to hold off a brigade of Brigadier-General St John Richardson Liddell’s division, which suffered 105 casualties against Wilder’s superior firepower. Walker moved his men a mile downstream to Lambert’s Ford, an unguarded crossing, and was able to cross around 4.30 pm, considerably behind schedule. Wilder, concerned about his left flank after Minty’s loss of Reed’s Bridge, withdrew and establish a new blocking position east of the Lafayette Road near the Viniard farm. By dark Johnson’s division had halted in front of Wilder’s position. Walker had also crossed the creek but his troops were spread out along the road behind Johnson.

Buckner had been able to push only one brigade across the creek at Thedford’s Ford. Polk’s troops were facing Crittenden’s strongly posted at the easily defended crossing at Lee and Gordon’s Mill while Hill’s Corps guarded crossing sites further to the south. Although Bragg had achieved some degree of surprise he had failed to exploit it fully due to delays and stiff resistance to his crossing of Chickamauga Creek. Although his proposed offensive had been delayed, Bragg still believed that the plan was appropriate and achievable and circulated instructions for it to be resumed at dawn.

Union Major-General William Starke Rosecrans, observing the dust clouds raised by the marching Confederates in the morning, had grasped the threat posed by Bragg’s plan. He ordered Major-General George Henry Thomas’ XIV Corps and Major-General Alexander McDowell McCook’s XX Corps to give Crittenden their earliest possible support. Even as the Confederates were crossing the creek, Thomas began to arrive in Crittenden’s rear area.
