Bragg: General — The enemy reached this point just before usond. My men and horses are tired, hungry, and jaded, but all right. J. E. B. Stuart.

The two roads join the burning of the Meadow bridge by our troops.--This fact being discovered, the only mode of retreat left was to beat Gen. Stuart at Yellow Tavern and go up the Brook or Mountain roads, or to attack the battery at the Brook turnpike and cut their way through.

The enemy at once pressed in and over our breastworks, causing the two other brigades of Johnson's division — Stuart's and the Stonewall, under the gallant Hayes —— to fall rapidly back. Just at this moment Major Gen Ed Johnson rode up to his line. Considerable confusion had by this time ensued, and in obedience to the suggestion of his aid he dismounted, was dismounted he ran hastily to one of the guns of Cutshaw's artillery, in order to fire it upon the enemy; before, however, he had succeeded the enemy had closed thickly around him and he was a prisoner in their hands, as was also Brig Gen G H Stuart of the Maryland line, with some twenty five hundred officers and men from this division, and some twenty pieces of artillery; twelve of which were from Page's and the rest from Cutshaw's battalions.
