The 2nd (Vermont) Brigade of the 2nd Division, VI U.S. Corps, briefly deployed around the Heater House as skirmishers in the first federal effort to stop the 19 October 1864 Confederate morning attack. When this proved unfeasible, the entire division withdrew to defensive positions on the high ground to the north. Units from the divisions of Confederate Generals Stephen D. Ramseur, John Pegram, and Gabriel C. Wharton then advanced past the Heater House in pursuit while two Confederate artillery batteries supported them from positions flanking the house..
