irected by Gen. Roberts, of Gen. Pope's staff, to take position on the extreme right, which I occupied with my command of three regiments and two batteries. Until 4 P. M. only a few discharges from the enemy's guns announced his presence. At this hour a severe cannonading began, extending from the left of our line across the road upon which our centre rested. Our batteries, served with great vigor, responded manfully, and with such success that the whole of our left, consisting of General Augur's division, advanced considerably from our first position, not withstanding the enemy occupied a height which gave him advantages of a plunging fire. Until 5½ P. M., this artillery practice continued with unabating severity. At this hour I heard quite a rapid musketry firing in my front, behind a range of timber, distant about one-third of a mile from my position. I was ordered by you, sir, to move at once with my brigade and support Gen. Crawford, who was engaging the enemy's left.
