Dana's Brigade, following Gorman's in column of attack, passed through the East Woods, crossed the Cornfield and the Hagerstown Pike, about 50 yards in rear of Gorman, and entered the West Woods where its advance was checked about 40 yards east of this point.

Its left flank having been attacked and turned by McLaws and Walker's Divisions, it was compelled to retire.

A portion of the brigade, with the 1st Minnesota Infantry, occupied a line near the Nicodemus House which it held for a time until its flank having been again turned, it retired to the woods and fields east of the Hagerstown Pike.
