Several of the reports speak of the superior force of the enemy. General Ricketts says that he relieved Doubleday hard-pressed and nearly out of ammunition. Before Ricketts came in person with Hartsuff's brigade, he had sent Christian's brigade to the assistance of Doubleday. The brigades of Kemper and Pickett (the latter under Garnett) must have fought valiantly, else such results could not have been achieved. General Doubleday's report contains this curious story: I learned from a wounded prisoner that we were engaged with four to five thousand under the immediate command of General Picket
