At daylight tomorrow, Cleburne’s Division, including Great Grandfather's brigade, will march to Dr. Anderson house, 4 miles southeast of Lee & Gordon’s Mills and form its line of battle as the left flank of the Confederate army. At this point they are now opposite the left wing of Rosecrans's army.* Bragg plans to make a strong demonstration at Lee & Gordon's to draw Rosecrans's attention away from the Confederate force crossing at bridges to the north in order to cut off the Federals from Chattanooga. Contrary to both commanding generals' information, the 2 forces are not opposite each other. Rather, most of Rosecrans's line is far north of Bragg's.
* Cleburne's Division will remain there until it is shifted north to meet the enemy on the late afternoon of the 19th.
