Sedgwick's Division, Second Army Corps,

Maj. Gen. John Sedgwick, Commanding.
September 17, 1862.

Sedgwick's Division crossed the Antietam at Pry's Ford at 7:45 a.m. and, advancing from the East Woods in column of Brigades, Gorman's Brigade in advance, Dana's second and Howard's Third, passed through the Cornfield and the open fields to the south, crossed the Hagerstown Pike, entered the West Woods, and had reached the open ground beyond, when its advance was checked by Jackson's Command and the artillery of Stuart's Division.

Its left flank was then attacked and turned by McLaws' and Walker's Divisions and it was forced to retreat northward to the fields and woods beyond D.R. Miller's, where it rallied under cover of the Artillery of the First and Twelfth Corps.

This tablet marks the center of the Division in its advance.
