Shortly after sunset the division moved forward to this position from the line it occupied after its repulse at noon. Upon entering the field west of the road it was at first subjected to a front and enfilading fire and soon after when it had advanced from 120 to 130 yards west of the road with its skirmishers 300 yards in front, the line of Turchin's Brigade of Reynolds' division swept out of the woods to the south and charged along the front of Liddell's Division capturing a part of its skirmishers and a field officer and forcing the line to withdraw a considerable distance east of the road. After Reynolds' troops had passed Liddell's Division returned and bivouacked north of this position. Turchin's column was the advance of the Union withdrawal. Total force in action during the battle 3175, killed 162, wounded 963, missing 277, total 1402. Percentage of loss 44.16.
