Kanawha Division, Ninth Corps.

Col. E.P. Scammon, 23d Ohio Infantry, Commanding.
September 16-17, 1862.

On the evening of September 16th the Kanawha Division was on the ridge east of the Antietam; Crook's Brigade north of the Burnside Bridge, Ewing's Brigade southeast of it. On the morning of the 17th Crook's Brigade, preceded by the 11th Connecticut of Harland's Brigade, Rodman's division, attempted to carry the Burnside Bridge but failed. About 2:00 p.m. Crook crossed the bridge and formed in support of Sturgis' Division, which position he retained after Willcox relieved Sturgis. Ewing's Brigade crossed the Antietam at Snavely's Ford and moved in support of Rodman's Division. The division reached the line of the stone fence along this road, its right at this point, its left 535 yards southwest.

It checked temporarily the advance of A.P. Hill's Division but, its left having been turned, was compelled to retire to the shelter of the ridge east of this.
