McLaws' Division - Longstreet's Corps.
Brigadier General Benjamin G. Humphreys.

After Kershaw's Brigade had forced Harker's troops out of the north end of the Dyer field to near the Snodgrass house Humphreys advanced to this position on Kershaw's right and acted as a support in the unsuccessful assaults upon the Union position. At the time of the battle woods covered the entire position up to the foot of the slope. Upon emerging from these woods his skirmishers found the Union position so strong that General Longstreet ordered him to hold this position without advancing.
