Featherston's [CS] attack was delayed by skirmishers while Wood deployed his 4 regts. to meet it ~ a counter-assault that drove the Mississippians up the slope. An attempt to penetrate the Fed. line between Wood & Kimball was prevented by the 73d & 55th Ohio regts.

Driven to & S. of the road, Featherston made an effort to dislodge Wood's troops from rail barricades there, but lack of support on his left and right forced his withdrawal.
