2nd Brigade (McLean), First Division (Schenk)
First Corps (Sigel), Army of Virginia, USA

73rd Ohio Infantry
Col. Orland Smith

"The enemy in our front, moving in concert with those on our flank, came out of the woods - their line masking and overlapping our own. The whole left of our brigade poured into them a murderous volley. The combat grew fierce indeed. But the contest was not long. On came the flanking column. We stood until the enemy had nearly gained our rear, and had opened fire upon our flank. Then we retired."
-Samuel B. Hurst
Regimental Historian
