Kilpatrick Divides His CavalryAs a squadron of the 18th Pennsylvania Cavalry went into the woods, portions of the 1st and 5th Michigan cavalry began their advance. The 5th Michigan Cavalry was sent toward the right and a portion of the 1st Michigan Cavalry was ordered to dismount and continue on the turnpike. This caused captain Emack's men to slowly fall back further westward until General George Custer's Brigade gained the eastern half of Monterey Pass.
