September 16-17, 1862.

On the evening of September 16, Winder's Brigade formed line perpendicular to this road, its right resting at this point, its left 130 yards west connecting with Jones' Brigade. In this position these brigades were assaulted by the enemy, early on the 17th, and forced back to the reserves in the edge of the woods. Soon afterward, the entire division advanced but was compelled to retire. Re-enforced by Early's Brigade, the division again advanced and again fell back and reformed beyond the West Woods where it supported the assault of McLaws' Division.
