Turchin moved to the right and formed in two lines on the left of Cruft’s Brigade of Palmer’s Division. At 4:30 .PM. the enemy attacked with great persistence and was finally repelled by a charge of Turchin’s Brigade which wheeled upon the enemy’s right, while Cruft’s Brigade charged to the front. At the close of this engagement Turchin’s Brigade joined Kings in the vicinity of Poe House where it bivouacked.
