Anderson's Brigade, D.H. Hill's Division

Jackson's Command,
Anderson's Brigade, D.H. Hill's Division.

Brigadier General Geo. B. Anderson,
2d, 4th, 14th, and 30th North Carolina Infantry.
(September 17, 1862.)

On the night of September 16, 1862, Anderson's Brigade bivouacked on either side of the Boonsboro Turnpike near the end of the ravine and Piper's Cornfield to and beyond this point, but being forced back, formed line a few feet north of this on the right of Rodes' Brigade. It withstood several charges of Richardson's Division, Sumner's Corps, but, shortly after noon, was compelled to retire in the direction of Sharpsburg. It reformed on the Hagerstown Pike southwest of Piper's house and assisted in checking the Federal advance in that direction.
