Meagher's Brigade, Richardson's Division

Second Army Corps
Meagher's Brigade, Richardson's Division,

Brig. Gen. Thomas F. Meagher, Commanding
29th Massachusetts Infantry
63rd New York Infantry
69th New York Infantry
88th New York Infantry
September 17, 1862

Meagher's Brigade led the advance of Richardson's Division and, in the field just north of this, became engaged with the Confederate Brigade of Geo. B. Anderson which was forced to retire to the Bloody Lane.

At this point, Meagher's advance was checked and a severe conflict ensued, but 30 yards separating the opposing lines.

Its ammunition having been exhausted, the Brigade was relieved by Caldwell's but, later in the day, advanced to a position on the high ground, south of this point, in support of Caldwell and Brooke.
