Third Brigade, Cavalry Division.

Col. Richard H. Rush, 6th Pennsylvania Cavalry,
4th and 6th Pennsylvania Cavalry.
(September 17, 1862.)

The Third Brigade supported Battery A, (Tidball's) 2nd U.S. Artillery in its advance, piece by piece, to the crest of the ridge in front, by deploying on either side of this road, -the 4th Pennsylvania on the right and the 6th Pennsylvania on the left,- and forcing back the Confederate skirmishers. Col. James H. Childs, commanding 4th Regiment, when on the road a few yards east of this point, was mortally wounded by a rifled shot. The brigade was relieved by the advance of the regular infantry late in the afternoon.
