Duryee's Brigade, Rickett's Division

First Army Corps.
Duryee's Brigade, Rickett's Division,

Brigadier General Abram Duryee, Commanding.
97th, 104th, 105th New York and 107th
Pennsylvania Infantry.
(September 17, 1862.)

Early in the morning Duryee's Brigade moved from its bivouac in the Poffenberger Woods, on the Smoketown Road. Forming in column of divisions, it obliqued right until near J. Poffenberger's when it marched south through the North Woods, passed the right of Hartsuff's Brigade and between Pennsylvania Light Battery F. (Matthews') and Pennsylvania Light Battery C. (Thompson's) in position on the high ground between D.R. Miller's and the East Woods. Arriving at the cornfield fence, the Brigade deployed and moved through the cornfield to its south edge (75 yards distant) when it encountered the Confederate line, which was about 145 to 160 yards south of this. In less than a half hour the left of the Brigade was withdrawn, the right remained a few minutes longer when it fell back. Portions of the Brigade were rallied and made another advance part way through the cornfield, but fell back as Hartsuff's Brigade came into action.
