|Location of Tyner's Station today|
Soldiers from Gen. Patrick Cleburne's Division had occupied this key rail station since May. Cleburne’s troops built 4 redoubts to guard the station on the East Tennessee & Georgia Railroad and the village. One was built on Tyner Hill. Another redoubt was in the center of the village of Tyner, next to the house that Cleburne used as his headquarters in the coming campaign.
Col. Lowrey set up his regimental headquarters at the Good Springs Baptist Church, across that main road from the village. That Sunday he gathered his flock at the church for a sermon he preached to them, doing the same the following week. The church also served as a hospital for the regiment.
The 32nd Regiment will stay here through the end of the month.
