The defense of the high ground around Middletown Cemetery by the 2nd Division, U. S. VI Corps, stopped the Confederate momentum. Confederate forces from the divisions of Generals Stephen D. Ramseur and Gabriel Wharton regrouped in the area between Meadow Brook and Middletown and launched four attacks against this position, after which they dislodged the federals with a heavy artillery barrage. The Vermont Brigade and Battery M, 5th U. S. Artillery, defended the part of the ridge visible from here.
