Capt. Bowyer Brockenbrough

At daybreak, Brockenbrough's guns blasted counter-battery fire from here toward Matthews' and Thompson's Union guns north of the Cornfield. Brockenbrough then relocated to Hauser's Ridge, higher ground to the west, and fired into Sedgwick's Division as they emerged from the West Woods. Brockenbrough's firepower and mobility directly impacted the Union First and Second Corps on the northern end of the field.
