On the high hill 500 yds. S. of Collier Rd. the left of Scott's brigade (27th, 35th &49th Ala., & 12th La.) Loring's div. [CS] dislodged Geary's outpost, [US] the 33d N.J. regt. & captured its flag.

Pressing forward, the left of Scott's line [CS] moved toward Geary's batteries at Collier Rd., while the right of it, diverted by gun-fire, crossed Tanyard Branch & the road & continued down the slope N. ~ in effect, flanking Geary's two batteries 300 yds. westward.

This surprise assault by Scott, had it been in greater force, might have driven a wedge in the center of the Federal line; outnumbered, it was driven back S. of the road.
