Army of Northern Virginia

General Robert E. Lee, Commanding.
(September 17, 1862.)

At about 6 a.m. Jackson became heavily engaged in resisting an attempt of Hooker's Corps of the Army of the Potomac to turn the left flank of the Confederate Army. About 7 a.m. the attempt was renewed by Mansfield's Corps. About 9 a.m. a third attempt was made by Sedgwick's Division of Sumner's Corps. Between 9:15 and 11 a.m. French's and Richardson's Division of Sumner's Corps assaulted and at noon finally carried the Confederate position in the Sunken Road. Between 9 a.m. and noon several attacks were made on the Confederate right at the Burnside Bridge but without success. An attack at 1 p.m. was successful and the troops of the Ninth Corps obtained a lodgment on the plateau overlooking the Burnside Bridge. From this position at about 3 p.m. an assault was directed against the heights overlooking the town, which was checked by the arrival of A.P. Hill's Division from Harper's Ferry.
