This Brigade, being left of Davis' Division, reached this line about 1 p.m., and formed on the right of Wilder's Brigade of mounted Infantry, having Carlin's Brigade on its right. The line advanced across the LaFayette Road and became desperately engaged about 2 o'clock. After three quarters of an hour the Brigade was forced back to the road. It rallied and nearly regained its most advanced position when it was again repulsed. In rallying the line in the low ground west to the road Colonel Heg was mortally wounded. At 3:30 p.m. Wood's Division arrived from Lee and Gordon's Mill and relieved Davis' line, when Heg's Brigade, now commanded by Colonel Martin, again advanced but was not further engaged during the 19th.
