May 18, 1864. About dawn, Hancock's and Wright's Corps advanced southward past the McCoull House and attacked Ewell's Corps which was holding the new line. They hoped to repeat the Federal success of May 12. This time, however, Confederate cannon were ready and blasted the attack, throwing the Federal troops back in great confusion. Grant realized that Lee could neither be flanked or routed on this battlefield. He resolved once more to maneuver and soon moved east and south toward Richmond. As he had promised, Grant would "take no backward steps."
