Polk´s Corps [CS] having held the sector centering on Lost Mountain, June 5-9, was withdrawn E., leaving Gen. W.H. Jackson´s Cav. Div. [CS] to hold the vacated line.

On the 17th, Johnston [CS] shifted his left flank E. to Mud Creek; during this withdrawal, Ross´ Brigade [CS] of Jackson´s Cav. fought a spirited action from the hill W. of the Widow (Piety M.) Green house, which was used as a hospital.

Ross´ Texas Brigade held the position until forced to retreat by Hascall´s (2d) Div., 23d Corps [US], which had seized Lost Mountain that morning.
