This point marks the farthest advance of the Confederates into the city. After finally routing the 72nd Enrolled Missouri Militia, Confederates were forming along Walnut Street for the final assault into the city when drums along Jordan Creek to the north announced a new Union counterattack. The 72nd had been rallied by Col. Henry Sheppard and militia Brig. Gen. C.B. Holland. Also engaged at this time, along the Confederates' left flank, were companies of the 3rd and 4th Missouri State Militia and five companies of the 18th Iowa. These counterattacks pushed the Confederates back across the ground they had just won. The 72nd did not retreat again in the battle.
