The hillock over which the Telegraph Road passes after crossing Hazel Run, and which at a later period was denominated Lee's Hill, was also covered with several redoubts, which enfiladed this road and completely flanked the positions of Marye's Hill. This hillock, as well as those extendit adversaries as Lee and his lieutenants. But even if he had succeeded in deceiving them for an instant, the troops to whom the guarding of Marye's Heights and Lee's Hill had been entrusted for the last three weeks would have sufficed to repel any direct attack upon those heights.

A number of prisoners and four additional pieces o

The 17th regiment was placed in front of Lee's hill, and the 13th still farther to the right. One regiment from Gen. Hays's command was subsequently placed to the right of the 13th.

But seeing the line broken at this point, I ordered the 13th, 17th and the Louisiana regiment to fall back to the crest of Lee's hill, to prevent the enemy from getting in our rear.
