After the repulse of Breckinridge's Division about 11 a.m. the Division of Walker and Liddell were brought forward and at noon Walker's Division attacked the Union lines northeast of the Kelly Field and was repulsed. Walthall's Brigade of Liddell's Division on the left of Walker also made an attack and was forced to retire. Liddell's Brigade of the same Division was driven back after reaching a point near the Lafayette Road. At 5 p.m. Liddell's Division supported by Walker's advanced across the Lafayette Road at McDonald's. From this position Liddell's Division was at first forced back by enfilading battery fires and by a charge of Turchin's Union Brigade along its front but subsequently reoccupied the position at dusk and the whole corps bivouacked on this portion of the field.
