The battle of Tuesday, May 10.
Hancock had so pushed out his right that on the morning of this day one division, under Barlow, had crossed the Po, and was disposed almost at right angles with the general line, practically turning the enemy's flankeral attack was ordered, to be made at five o'clock. About four o'clock, the enemy, having discovered the weakness of General Barlow's position on the right, sent a heavy force in that direction, which pounced so suddenly and fiercely upon the divisihe right, caused a pulling up of tent stakes, and a mounting of horses, which appeared very panic-stricken indeed.
General Barlow's division still pressed by superior numbers, fought its way slowly backward, and, still fighting, retreated across t, Ewell's whole corps adjoining.
At half-past 4 o'clock Thursday morning, the attack upon this work was prepared.
General Barlow's division — Neill's brigade leading — formed in column by battalion, doubled on the centre, and took the advance.
