After Croxton had been relieved by the advance of Baird's Division, he withdrew his Brigade to this line to procure ammunition and reorganize. From this position it advanced about noon striking the left flank of Govan's Brigade of Liddell's Division, and gained position to the right of and on a line with its second formation of the morning. After considerable fighting on that ground it was compelled to fall back until it reached a good position where it was relieved by the advance of the troops of Johnson's Division from the direction of the Kelly field, and withdrew to the glade north of that field.
