D.R. Jones' Division, Longstreet's Command,

Brig. Gen. David R. Jones, Commanding.
September 17, 1862.

The division formed at daylight on the plateau commanding the approaches to the Burnside Bridge.

At about noon the enemy made several attempts to carry the bridge, but was repulsed. An assault made at 1 p.m. was successful, the bridge was carried, and the advanced troops withdrew to a position on the plateau nearer the town. Between 2 and 3 p.m. the enemy gained the plateau and advanced upon the town, but was checked by the troops of this division which was re-enforced at about 3 p.m. by A.P. Hill's Division of Jackson's Command.
