Orders are as follows:
Crittenden – continue to hold your present position to prevent the enemy from shifting troops from his right. Push forward a strong skirmish line.
Thomas – secure West Ridge and HOLD, then bring up your artillery and bombard the enemy to your front in preparation for an attack.
McCook – continue to ENGAGE the enemy on Black Elk Mountain.
It is possible that Bragg may organise a counter-attack at first light, if so I expect him to assault our right flank with Cleburne’s veterans near Leggett’s Mill.

Current orders are as follows:
Crittenden – HOLD a line from the Conrad House to Laurel Heights. Palmer’s division is to entrench.
McCook – move to your right and ENGAGE the enemy on Black Elk Mountain.
Thomas – move directly towards West Ridge and ASSAULT the centre of the enemy line.
