The enemy's line was plainly in view, about twelve ell back in the same succession in which they had advanced — Wilcox's, Perry's, Wright's and Posey's. They regained their position in the line of battle. The enemy dn to the front, and the troops lay upon their arms. In Wilcox's, Perry's and Wright's brigades the loss was very heavy.

Hampton's brigade remained at the gap for the night. Next morning upon my arrival, finding that the enemy had made no de
