Brig. Gen. Jubal A. Early, Commanding.
Organization.
13th 25th 31st 44th 49th 52d & 58th Virginia Infantry.
September 17-18, 1862. No.2.

After supporting Jackson's Division in repulsing the right of the First Army Corps on the plateau west of the Hagerstown Pike, Early's Brigade, moving through the West Woods and along their western edge to this point, advanced east and, in co-operation with portions of McLaws' Division, drove the 125th Pennsylvania and 34th New York from the woods near the church, then, wheeling to the left, supported by the brigades of Semmes, Anderson and Barksdale, and portions of Jackson's Division, struck the flank of Sedgwick's Division and forced it to retire from the field. The Brigade was then reformed and withdrawn to the position occupied by it in the morning and, later in the day, moved to the northern part of the West Woods, where it remained until the night of the 18th, when it recrossed the Potomac.
