Early's Brigade, Ewell's Division

C.S.A.
Jackson's Command.
Early's Brigade, Ewell's Division.

Brig. Gen. Jubal A. Early, Commanding.
Organization.
13th 25th 31st 44th 49th 52d & 58th Virginia Infantry.
September 16-17, 1862. No.1.

On the night of the 16th, Early's Brigade bivouacked in the farm lane on the left of Jackson's Division and in the Dunkard Church woods, between this point and the church. At dawn of the 17th, the Brigade moved nearly a mile northwest to support Stuart's Cavalry Division and some batteries of Artillery. The Brigade was on this duty about an hour when, leaving the 13th Virginia Infantry with Stuart, it returned and formed line on the plateau east of this, perpendicular to the Hagerstown Pike, and, advancing in a northerly direction, as a support to Jackson's right, participated in a sanguinary engagement with the right of the First Army Corps, which was obliged to retire, then moved to the south, along the west edge of the West Woods, and engaged the enemy near the Dunkard Church.
