Taliaferro's Brigade, Jackson's Division

Jackson's Command.
Taliaferro's Brigade, Jackson's Division,

Colonel J.W. Jackson, 47th Alabama, Commanding.
47th, and 48th Alabama and 10th, 23d, and 37th
Virginia Infantry.
(September 16-17, 1862.)

On the evening of September 16, Taliferro's Brigade formed in the second line perpendicular to this road, its right resting at this point on the left of Starke. When the first line, composed of the brigades of Jones and Winder, was forced back early in the morning of the 17th, the second line advanced supported by the partially rallied brigades of the first line but was obliged to retire with great loss. Supported by Early's Brigade of Ewell's Division, the Division again advanced but again fell back and, having reformed beyond the West Woods, joined McLaws' Division in the attack on Sedgwick's Division of Summer's Corps.
