About the time the advance of Liddell's Division had been checked by the Brigade in its position south of the road, a Confederate force advanced rapidly from the low ground east and north of this position. To meet this attack three regiments of the Brigade with 10 pieces of artillery were hastily formed on the crest of this ridge facing north.

The 2nd Minnesota on the right, next one section of Smith's Battery commanded by Lieutenant Rodney, then the 87th Indiana, flanked by Church's and the other section of Smith's Battery, and on the extreme left the 35th Ohio. The two extremes of the line formed an obtuse angle, the opening toward the enemy. The assaulting column continued to advance till within 40 yards of the line, but was finally repulsed by the combined front and
flank fire of musketry, and of artillery double shotted with canister. the 9th Ohio rejoined the Brigade as the enemy was repulsed and soon after 1 p.m. the command moved and formed on the crest of the next ridge west, facing east.
