About 2 o’clock this Brigade occupied the spur of Snodgrass Hill overlooking the Vittetoe House. York’s and Dent’s batteries were hauled to the summit and established there. At 3 o’clock Manigault’s Brigade
moved up and connected with Johnson’s left. From this time until sundown charge succeeded charge from the extremity of this spur towards the central crest each being repulsed by Steedman’s Division. At sundown Mitchell’s Brigade of Steedman’s Division in front
of this position was withdrawn and Johnson’s troops having reached this position in the last charge went forward and occupied the line upon which the Union troops had fought during the afternoon and followed down the northern slope to the bottom of the ridge.
