Jackson's Command

Major General Thomas J. Jackson,
(September 17, 1862.)

Jackson's Command was in order of battle at 5:30 a.m. Jackson's Division, commanded by J.R. Jones, in two lines, its right resting on the Hagerstown Turnpike 230 yards north of this. Early's and Hay's Brigades of Ewell's Division were on the left rear of Jones, and the Brigades of Lawton and Trimble were in the fields between the Hagerstown Turnpike and the East Woods. Jackson's Command was assaulted in this position, between the hours of 5:30 and 8 a.m., by the First and Twelfth Corps of the Army of the Potomac. At about 9 a.m., having been re-enforced by McLaws' and Walker's Division of Longstreet's Command, it repulsed an assault of Sedgwick's Division of the Second Corps.
