Davis, with Carlin's and Heg's Brigades - Post's being still with the train at Stevens' Gap - reached the Lafayette Road from from vicinity of Widow Glenn's about 1 p.m. with Barnes' Brigade of Van Cleve's Division on his right after 2 p.m. and Wilder's Mounted Infantry Brigade of Reynolds' Division on his left, he wheeled to the left across the road, moving in a northeasterly direction, and attacked Trigg's Brigade of Preston's Division and all of Bushrod R. Johnson's Division. The latter having swung northward toward Brotherton's after forcing Heg's Brigade across the road north of Viniard's. Robertson's and Benning's Brigades of Hood's Division took its place and continued the resistance to Davis' attack, finally driving Davis' line across the LaFayette Road in much confusion at 3:30 p.m. Colonel Heg, commanding the third Brigade, was killed. At this time Wood's Division, followed soon after by two brigades of Sherdian's, arrived from Lee and Gordon's Mill. Buell's Brigade of the former and Bradley's Brigade of the latter were interposed before the pursuing
enemy. With assistance of several batteries and Wilder's Brigade of Mounted Infantry near the Viniard House, the enemy was finally driven back into the forest east of the LaFayette Road at dusk.
