September 17-18, 1862.

During and after Sedgwick's assault on the Confederates in the West Woods, a line of batteries was established, running from Mumma's Cemetery on the south, crossing the road at this point and extending northwardly in front of the East Woods to the Poffenberger Lane beyond which, on the hill beyond J. Poffenbergers, the Reserve Artillery of the First Army Corps was established.

The line was held in turn by batteries of the First, Twelfth, Second and Sixth Army Corps and held in check several attempts of the Confederates to advance from the West Woods.

The batteries remained in position until the Confederates withdrew from the field.
