M. from the low ground beyond the first crest east of the Lafayette road and inclining to the right crossed the road and its right took part in the attack upon the Union line which was forced to the rear. It followed Law’s Brigade to the Dyer Field moved by the right flank and changing front advanced to the top of the hill from which it drove the enemy. After holding the hill a few moments a fire from the rear on both flanks forced it to retire. At this point McLaws’ Division replaced it on the front line and the brigade was ordered to remain in the forest east of the Dyer Fields.
