While Robertson's Brigade, which was the left of Hood's Division, was moving northwardly through the low ground northeast of this position, it wheeled to the left to meet the advance of Barnes' and Carlin's Brigades over this ground. The first attack was successful, and these two brigades were driven back, but immediately rallied and in turn forced Robertson over the crest, which was again carried by Robertson. The arrival of Wood's and Sheridan's Union troops from Lee and Gordon's Mill caused the Confederates to retire into the forest east of Viniard's at sunset.
