On the morning of the 21st we held the line of Bull Run, with our right at Union Mills and our left at Stone Bridge.
EDwell's brigade was at Union Mills, Jones' at McLean's Ford, Longstreet's at Blackburn's Ford, Bonham's at Mitchell's Ford, Cocke at the fords below Stone Bridge, and Evans with Sloan's regiment and Wheat'Bridge.
Holmes' brigade, which had arrived from Aquia Creek, was some three miles in rear of Ewell's position.
My brigade was in reserve to support Longstreet or Jones, as might be required, and Jackson's and parts of Bee's and Bartow's brigades of Johnston's army — which had arrived by the Manassas Gap Railroad--were held as a gt for from the right, when the day appeared doubtful, but the battle was won before they arrived, and they were ordered to return to their former positions.
D. R. Jones, in the afternoon, made an advance against the battery which I had been ordered to take in the morning, but was compelled to retire with loss.
