Cleburne launch two night attacks. One at Chickamauga and another at Pickett's Mill.

"The Texans, their bayonets fixed, plunged into the darkness with a terrific yell, and with one bound were upon the enemy, but they met with no resistance. Surprised and panic-stricken many fled, escaping in the darkness, others surrendered and were brought into our lines. It needed but the brilliancy of this night attack to add luster to the achievements of Granbury and his brigade in the afternoon."

"Cleburne is here!" meant that all was well. -Daniel Harvey Hill
