At noon Dibrell’s Brigade moved to the left from VanDerveer’s front, where it had been severely engaged, and formed in the low ground north of the Ringgold Road and beyond VanDerveer’s left flank, with the purpose of turning it. The movement, however, was discovered and when Dibrell’s troops advanced they found VanDerveer formed on the crest above them, his infantry supported by ten guns. Dibrell’s line, dismounted, assaulted with great spirit, but was repulsed after advancing to within 40 paces of the infantry and there receiving and enfilading fire from eight field pieces and a direct infantry fire from VanDerveer’s entire line, further assisted on its right center by two pieces of artillery.
