Meanwhile McCook's division had been fighting the Confederate center, pushing it back step by step, until it was driven from its position. The action of that division was commenced by General Rousseau's, which was well supported by Generals Kirk and Gibson, Willich's regiment, and two regiments of Hurlbut's division. Hurlbut's shattered division, which had fought on the previous day, was held in reserve much of the time at the rear and left of McClernand.
