he rolled the enemy back, and passing Sumner's front, they were by him hurriedly thrown over on to Kearny. The gallant General might have said, without much stretch of the hyperbole, that the enemy was hurriedly thrown over the moon! the one being quite as practicable as the other, Kearny being on my right, half a mile from Hooker, (who was on my left,) and six of my regiments and three batteries, Cooper's, Kerns's, and Randall's, in the interval hotly contesting the ground with part of Longstreet's division, which, I am proud to say, after hard fighting, recoiled before the Pennsylvania reserves.
