Slocum's Division, Sixth Army Corps.

Maj. Gen. Henry W. Slocum, Commanding.
September 17, 1862.

Slocum's Division followed Smith's in its march from near Crampton's Pass on the morning of the 17th, and, upon reaching the field, occupied the ground from which Smith was just advancing: Torbert's Brigade in the center on either side of this road; Newton's Brigade on the right connecting with Hancock, and Bartlett's Brigade on the left extending beyond the Cemetery and into the low ground between Mumma's and Roulette's. Beyond supporting the Artillery the division was not actively engaged.

It suffered slight loss from artillery fire and remained in position until the morning of the 19th.
