O'Neal's (formerly Cantey's) brigade, Walthall's div. [CS] began its assault abreast & on the rt. of Reynolds'. It struck the rt. of Geary's 20th A.C. div. [US] posted on Collier Rd., forcing Geary to refuse Candy's brigade (in part) together with Ireland's & Jones', down the slope N.W. to the ravine where its juncture with the left of Williams' div. formed a re-entrant angle.

O'Neal's men [CS] charged down the slope, in front of Geary's refused line, into the angle. They penetrated the Federal line at this critical point, the while assailing Geary's flank & rear in spite of artillery fire on rt. & left. Lacking support, O'Neal was forced back.
