This Brigade followed Hood's Division in its advance and attack upon the Union line west of the Poe house. Reaching this ground it changed front to meet the attack upon Hood's Division from Harker's Union Brigade which had formed across the Dyer field from east to west northwest of this point and checked Hood's troops. Kershaw changing front to the right attacked Harker and after severe fighting forced him and fragments of other regiments back first to the road in his rear and then to the Snodgrass Ridge. Kershaw then with Humphreys' Brigade on his right advanced soon after 1 o'clock to the assault of Snodgrass Ridge.
