Hancock's attack upon Hill opened with every promise of success. Birney's, Mott's, and Getty's divisions advanced simultaneously upon Heth and Wilcox, avored in vain to stay the panic, but was unable to do so, and, consulting with Birney, he decided to abandon all in front and endeavor to reestablish his line upon tthe Po to take part in an assault ordered in the afternoon at five. Gibbon and Birney were accordingly withdrawn, leaving Barlow's division alone on the south side. Not satisfied with this effort, Hancock tried a second assault at 7 P. M., with Birney's and Gibbon's divisions, supported by part of the 5th corps, but it was also rranks (or 20 men) deep. Barlow had open ground to advance over.

Burnside found the task of driving the enemy [it was but a picket force] out of the railroad cut a formidable one, and, assaulting, established his corps within a hundred yards of the enemy's main line. . . . Warren's assault was well made, some of Griffin's men being killed within 20 feet of the enemy's works, but it was no
