At 9:45 a.m. the brigade advanced as the left of its division from a line 400 yards in rear of this point came under heavy fire from the front and an enfilading fire of infantry and artillery from the left. The formation from right to left was 6th and 4th
Kentucky, 41st Alabama, 9th and 2nd Kentucky. In advancing the 6th and 4th Kentucky and six companies of the 41st Alabama passed to the right of the Union breastworks and continued with the rest of the division to the Lafayette road. The 2nd and 9th Kentucky
and four companies of the 41st Alabama struck the breastworks and were repulsed in three successive assaults General Helm being killed on this ground while rallying his line. This portion of the brigade was then moved to the right and there formed out of fire
