the west side of the first road, in the rear of the line, and held in reserve.
Wood, Davis and Sheridan followed next, the latter holding the extreme right.
General Lytle still held the position at Gordon's Mills, although now dangerously isolated from the right.
Thus it will be seen that three-fourths of the army was concentng cold of early morning, but grasping their guns firmly.
A battery was driving through the garden and wheeling into position, and a moment after I saw it was General Lytle's. His brigade soon marched up and took position near the house.
This startled, while it relieved me. We could not then afford to let a brigade lie idle—at suey can reach the foe a brigade of Davis is in enfiladed, and the men, able to escape only to the right, overrun the charging columns and tear it to pieces.
General Lytle had barely fronted his brigade when he was struck by a bullet in the head.
His third battle and his third wound!
Struck at Carnifex Ferry and grievously hurt
