At about 1PM of Sept.20, 1863, when Gen. George Thomas, the higher Rank officer remained on the field took overall command and rallied the Union Units which were still fighting, repealing five Confederate attacks led by Gen. Longstreet and managed to retreat from the battlefield in the late evening, without being pursued by the enemy.
