This brigade advanced from the Kelly field about noon as the reserve of Johnson's division. When the front brigades, Willich's being on the right and Baldwin's on the left, reached this line, Dodge's Brigade was brought forward upon the right and the entire line of the Division became severely engaged. After nearly two hours of hard fighting the enemy withdrew to the next high ground beyond the Winfrey House, followed by Johnson's troops to the immediate vicinity of that house.
