14th Louisiana Infantry.
September 16-17, 1862.

Hays' Brigade encamped on the night of the 16th in the woods northwest of the Dunkard Church. Soon after daylight of the 17th, it advanced and, near this point, crossed the Hagerstown Road to fill an interval between the brigades of Lawton and Trimble. After a short halt in the open fields south of the Cornfield, it was ordered to the support of Lawton's Brigade. It advanced into the Cornfield about 150 yards beyond Lawton, where, having lost more than one-half its numbers, it was relieved by Wofford's Brigade of Hood's Division and withdrawn to the fields south-west of the Dunkard Church.
