Greene's Division, Twelfth Army Corps.

Brig. Gen. George Greene, Commanding.
(September 17, 1862.)

Greene's Division having turned the enemy's right in the East Woods advanced against the Confederate infantry north and east of this point, which retired to the woods west of the Hagerstown Pike. Greene pressed forward in pursuit through the East Woods and across Mumma's Fields to the ridge a few yards east of this point, where he halted to replenish ammunition. With the assistance of Monroe's Tompkins' and Owen's Rhode Island, Knapp's Pennsylvania and Edgell's New Hampshire Batteries, he repulsed several assaults of the enemy. About 10:30 a.m., he crossed this road and advanced into the woods beyond the Dunkard Church which he held until noon, when he was compelled to retire to the East Woods, where he formed line in support of the Sixth Army Corps.
