Gordon's Brigade formed line at daybreak on the Hoffman Farm and advanced in a southernly direction in support of Hooker's Corps.

The 107th New York was detached to support Cochran's Battery and the 13th New Jersey was held in reserve. The Brigade formed on either side of Ransom's Battery on the high ground due east of D.R. Miller's, where it repulsed an assault of Hood's Division and its supports and, moving south through the Cornfield, changed front to the right and took position behind the ridge parallel to the Hagerstown Pike, where it remained until it was relieved by the advance of Sedgwick's Division and withdrawn to the East Woods.
