Brooks was stationed on Freedom Hill, sending detachments beyond Vienna. These latter were intended to cover and support the advance of General Hancock, who commanded the principal force.

Hancock procured 91 loads of forage, an General McCall over 50. None of the enemy were seen save a few cavalry scouts, who retired rapidly from view.
