Original History

Edward N. Kirk of the 34th Illinois.
Kirk as part of McCook's Second Division, was hurried to the front near the center of the Union line. Gen. McCook, believing the enemy had ceased their efforts on the right of his line and was preparing to turn his left, ordered the 77th PA to the extreme left of the division to repel the assault being made at that point. Kirk called upon the artillery to fire, hastening their departure. The column moved forward. Two days later, about six miles from Shelbyville outside Clay Village, Col. Kirk learned that an enemy force of four pieces of artillery, two cavalry regiments and an infantry brigade were drawn up in line of battle to his front. Kirk ordered the 77th and the 29th IN to charge the battery, which retreated before the onslaught. At the end of November Col. Kirk was commissioned Brigadier General, while Col. Stumbaugh, due to ill health, was forced to retire December 7. General Kirk, commander of the Second Brigade, was also mortally wounded in the battle and succeeded by Col. Dodge of the 30th Indiana.
