Davis' Division, with Carlin's Brigade in line in front, followed by the Third Brigade moved forward, crossed the road at this point, and connected with the right of Wood's Division, which latter had relieved Negley's Division on the front line west of Brotherton's house, about 250 yards east of this point. Upon the withdrawal of Wood's Division to the left, Martin took position in line on the left of Carlin. At 11:15 Davis' line was attacked by Hood's and Hindman's troops, and
after brief and desperate fighting, and in spite of assistance from Laiboldt's and Lytle's Brigades, Davis line, gave way and withdrew to the high ground west of the Crawfish Springs road, and then to McFarland's Gap. Total lass for the battle, two brigades only being engaged: killed 124; wounded 820; missing 405; total 1349. This loss exceeded 50 percent of the number engaged.
