About 1 A.M. this section of Napoleons relieved Garrity's Parrott guns on the point 125 yards south east facing the Craven's House. A dense fog obscured the valley from view till about 10 A.M. When Hooker's assaulting column came in range on the western slope the guns were moved to this position and opened fire throwing 33 shells. About 1 P.M. Hooker's line having passed under the point to the Cravens House line the guns were moved back to their first position.
