The Division was formed on this line at 7 a.m. At 11:10 a.m. it advanced. Wood's Union Division was at the moment moving to the left from the front of Johnson. The latter Division advanced into the opening under a heavy fire from adjacent lines soon broke the Union center and gained the Dyer fields. Upon entering these fields the division bore slightly to the right capturing fifteen guns on the high ground west and northwest of the Dyer house and separating the Union Divisions of Davis and Sheridan from the rest of the army. With the assistance of Hood's and McLaws' Divisions which had first followed in the track of Johnson and then turned more to the right the Union center was thrown into disorder. At 2 o'clock Johnson's line faced Snodgrass Hill at Vittetoe's ready to assault.
