At 10 a.m. Adam's Brigade having routed the troops in its front with its left on the Lafayette Road and Stovall's Brigade in line on its left moved toward the Kelly Field under a constant artillery fire pushing John Beatty's Brigade before it. It next encountered Stanley's Brigade which advanced to the support of Beatty. Finally after having passed beyond the Union left and reaching a point in the woods nearly opposite the center of the Kelly Field it was checked by the assistance of Van Derveer's Brigade, Goodspeed's Battery abd other troops which appeared on its flank in the Kelly Field. Together with Stovall's Brigade it retired to its early position north and east of the Kelly Field.
