Brig. Gen. Nathan G. Evans, Commanding.
(September 17, 1862.)

Evans' Brigade continued in support of the artillery during the morning of the 17th, covering the approaches to Sharpsburg by the Boonsboro Pike. At 7:30 a.m. Geo. T. Anderson's Brigade, which had been under temporary command of Gen. Evans, was detached and ordered to the Confederate left. About 1 p.m. Evans' Brigade was deployed on both sides of the Boonsboro Pike to meet the advance of the regular infantry of the Fifth Corps. At about 3 p.m. this brigade, with the remnants of Colquitt's and Garland's Brigades of D.H. Hill's Division, co-operated with D.R. Jones' Division in resisting the advance of the enemy from the direction of the Middle Bridge.
