The westernmost brigade of U.S. Brigadier General Cuvier Grover's 2nd Division, XIX U.S. Corps, the 2nd Brigade first came under pressure when C.S. Major General Joseph B. Kershaw's Division attacked its front and left. Then C.S. Major General John B. Gordon's men, charging from the east, ran into the federal camps in the brigade's rear. Corps commander Major General William H. Emory ordered the brigade commander Colonel Edward L. Molineux to turn his trenches so his men faced what seemed the greater danger from Gordon. No sooner had the men begun digging on the Cedar Creek side of their old trenches than Emory realized the futility of the situation and ordered them to withdraw westward down the trenches, away from the converging Confederates.
