In the autumn of 1863, Gen. Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia, with Lt. Gen. A. P. Hill's III Corps in the lead, pursued Maj. Gen. George G. Meade's Union army as it withdrew towards Washington. On the afternoon of 14 October, Maj. Gen. Gouverneur K. Warren's II Corps, Meade's rear guard, took a strong defensive position along the railroad embankment to meet an impetuous attack by elements of Hill's corps from the northwest. The Confederates were repulsed with heavy casualties (about 1300 to Warren's 548), including the loss of an unsupported battery of five guns about 500 yards north. Warren stealthily withdrew after dark to resume his march to Centreville. About 43 Union and 137 Confederate dead were buried on the field.
