Branch's Brigade


In the advance of A. P. Hill's Division from the Antietam Furnace Road, on the Afternoon of September 17th, Branch's Brigade supported the Brigades of Gregg and Archer.

It was engaged south of this point, and its commander, Brig. Gen. Branch was killed in the southeast part of the field adjoining this on the south.

After the death of General Branch, the command devolved upon Colonel James H. Lane, of the 28th North Carolina, who relieved Toombs' Brigade of D.R. Jones' Division at this point.

The Brigade remained in this position until the morning of the 19th, when it recrossed the Potomac.
