At the close of the engagement on the 19th of September, orders were given for the renewal of the battle at daylight. The army was divided into two wings. General Polk was placed in command of the right wing, and General Longstreet in command of the left wing. The orders directed the attack to begin by divisions on the extreme right at dawn, and to be taken up rapidly and successfully to the left. Owing to various delays the attack did not open in General Polk's wing until 9:30 a.m. General Stewart's division being the right of General Longstreet's wing, attacked at 11 a.m., followed at once by the division to his left. At this hour the engagement became general.
