The Federal 3rd Div., Army of the Tennessee, Maj. Gen. Lew Wallace, was disposed by brigades along an east-west line to meet Confederate attack expected from north or north-west. The 3rd Brigade, Col. Charles Whittlesey, 20th Ohio Inf., was in this area. The division withdrew to join the Shiloh engagement the afternoon of Apr. 6, but arrived there too late to engage until the following morning.
