Meanwhile, McLaws, with the rest of his force, save the brigades holding Crampton's Gap, moved down Pleasant Vall

Most of the inhabitants thereupon abandoned the place, which was occupied by Barksdale's Mississippi brigade, sharp-shooting from behind houses; while Lee's engineers pressed the foone wall — so strong that even artillery could make no impression on it — completely sheltered Barksdale's brigade, which, so soon as our charging columns came within rifle-shot, poured into their fa impelling him on a movement against Hooker's extreme right; leaving only Early's division and Barksdale's brigade in front of Sedgwick on our remote left, and to hold the heights overlooking Frederi scarcely been checked in their advance: the Rebel force (the 19th and 20th Mississippi, under Barksdale) being too light.
