About noon this brigade moved to the right from the line Hunt’s house to the crest of a ridge half a mile to the north. After heavy skirmishing lasting until about 9 o’clock the brigade was sent to the right and front to reinforce Hood’s Corps then heavily
engaged immediately east of Viniard’s house.
The brigade came partially under the fire of Carlin’s brigade and a portion of Wilder’s dismounted infantry covered by the woods, but it’s heaviest fighting was with Barnes’ brigade of Van Cleve’s division that had been left near Lee and Gordon’s mill and
which moved up and attacked Trigg in flank. After severe fighting with these forces the latter were pushed back to the west of the Lafayette Road, south of Viniards.
The subsequent arrival of two brigades of Sheridan’s division from Lee and Gordon’s Mills compelled the withdrawal of the Confederate line to the position it occupied before the advance.
