After the successful attack of this brigade upon portions of Davis's and Sheridan's Divisions, it advanced to the crest west of the Crawfish Springs road, and wheeling to the right, came into line on the left of Manigault's brigade. In the general advance of the line at 3:30 p.m., it ascended the spur of Snodgrass Hill next northwest of the Vittetoe house, and for nearly two hours unsuccessfully attacked the right of the Union position. It then fell back to the foot of the hill, and again advancing found the enemy had retired.
