Monocacy National BattlefieldThe Union troops held the Confederates at bay for most of the day. Around 4:30 p.m. the Union front collapsed and fell back to the Georgetown Pike, where they used the protection of the road bank in their final stand. The Union soldiers fronted Thomas Farm and spread to the right toward the river. The Confederates turned the right end to the Union line where their defense was weakest. The battle was lost and the Union army retreated.
