This street-fighting continued until 7 p. m., when Barksdale was ordered back to the famous stone wall below Marye's hill. Colonel Luse, with the Eighteenth, had held the enemy back, below the town, until 3:30 in the afternoon. The brigade was relieved at the stone wall by Cobb's brigade and then took position in the general line. The loss of the Seventeenth at the river was 106 killed, wounded and missing. General McLaws in his report said: The brigade of General Barksdale did their whole duty, and in a manner highly creditable to every officer and man engaged in the fight.
