Colquitt's Brigade formed line, soon after sunrise, south-west of Mumma's House, in support of Trimble and Ripley. It followed Ripley across the Smoketown Road and formed on his right.

After a severe engagement, involving heavy losses, it retired to the west end of the Bloody Lane and assisted in checking the advance of French's Division of the Second Corps. Later in the day, portions of the Brigade acted with Evan's Brigade in checking the Federal Advance on the Boonsboro' Pike.
