Lieutenant General Daniel H. Hill

Hill's Corps
Lieutenant General Daniel H. Hill

September 20th, 1863, 9 a.m.

Cleburne's Division - Major General Patrick R. Cleburne.
Breckinridge's Division - Major General John C. Breckinridge.


Breckinridge's Division moved forward at 9 a.m. Helm's Brigade came into action first, striking the northeast salient of the Union log-works in front of the Kelly field. Two desperate assaults made by this Brigade were repulsed, and Helm was killed. Adam's and Stovall's Brigades of this Division advanced to the LaFayette Road. then wheeling to the south, with Adams on the right and Stovall on the left of the road, they penetrated some distance into the Kelly field, from which point they were repulsed and returned to a line near their original position. Cleburne's Division moved forward at 10 a.m. along the east and southeast sides of the Kelly field, and after severe fighting close to the Union lines was repulsed and withdrew to a position near that from which it had moved to the attack.

During the latter part of the afternoon a general attack of the right wing, ordered at 3:30 p.m. was delivered.

The Union line was in the act of withdrawing. Reynold's Division had reached the north end of the Kelly field and Palmer's Division was half way across the
Kelly field towards the Lafayette Road. Johnson's and Baird's Divisions were under heavy attack when the order to withdraw reached them. Soon after they hastily withdrew across the Kelly field to the forest west of it, here losing a considerable number of prisoners.

The Confederates followed to the LaFayette Road, where they bivouacked.
