Immediately after this brigade had captured battery H, 5th U.S. Artillery Croxton’s Union Brigade advanced against the left flank of Liddell’s Division and obliged it to retire rapidly by the right to avoid capture. It withdrew to the right of Cheatham’s Division. At 3 o’clock it again moved to the right and formed on this ground for advance with Liddell’s Brigade on the right. It attacked the Union line in position on the open ground in its front but after a sharp engagement both brigades withdrew to the ground from which they had advanced and bivouacked.
