A second assault was made at 1½ o'clock, in which Mathias's, Loomis's, and Raul's brigades were engaged.
The force reached within twenty yards of the summit of the hill and the works of the enemy, when they were flanked and broke, retiring to their reserves.
In this assault Gen. Mathias was wounded and Col. Putnam, of the 93d Ohio, killed.
