Johnson's Division

C.S.A.
Brigadier General Bushrod R. Johnson's Division
Colonel Adolphus Heiman's Brigade
On February 13, 1862, about noon, a Federal force under Colonel William R. Morrison, deployed in the woods opposite the right and center of this brigade and launched an attack against this position. The deployment of the Federal troops for the attack had been observed by Brown's brigade, on the right, and as the attacking infantry advanced across the valley, Graves' Battery opened fire with telling effect. When the attacking infantry came within range, Maney's Battery also opened with canister and grape. Although the attack came within 40 yards of the rifle pits, repeated efforts to effect a breach in the line failed. After nearly two hours of fighting, the assailants withdrew. Toward the close of this engagement the dry leaves on the ground were set on fire by the Confederate batteries and a number of wounded Federal soldiers perished in the flames.
