The Federal losses were in eight brigades of infantry and one of cavalry.
Crawford's brigade lost 857, Geary's 465, Prince's 452, and Gordon's 344.
The fighting upon Jackson's left, where Garnett's and Taliaferro's brigades were broken by the charge of Crawford's and Gordon's brigades, and the line reestablished, by Branch's, Archer's, and Winder's brigades, was very desperate, as isGordon's brigades, and the line reestablished, by Branch's, Archer's, and Winder's brigades, was very desperate, as is shown by the casualties of some of the Federal regiments.
Gen. Williams, in his official report, says: —
The 3d Wis., especially, fell under a partial flank fire from the underbrush, and woods, which swept its right companies with great destruction, and under which Lt.-Col. Crane fell pierced with several fatal wounds, and the regiment was obliged to give way. The enemy was, however, driven out of the open field by the other regiments and some distance into the woods, where, being strongl

Early's attack is next to be described.
It, too, was isolated, inadequate, and unsupported.
It necessarily failed.
Both attacks were in progress at the same time, but Longstreet's, which they were intended to support, had already ceased.
Like Johnson's division, Early was also short of one brigade, Smith's having been sent to guard the rear from the direction of York.
