These Confederate forces moved from their position on the crest to their right and rear and joined General Bushrod Johnson's Division at the Vittetoe house shortly before 3 p.m. The remainder of Manigault's Brigade, having moved forward from the vicinity of Viniard's, rejoined the Division on the Crawfish Springs road.
