June 27, his division was sent at a critical moment to Porter's relief at Gaines' Mill, and rendered important service. At Fraser's Farm, June 30, the record made by his division is historic; at Malvern Hill, July 1, 1862, it held the right of the main line. He was commissioned major general of volunteers, July 4, 1862. He led his division in the victorious engagement on the left at South Mountain; and at Antietam, three days later, the timely arrival of Slocum's and Smith's commands of the Sixth Corps without doubt saved to the Federals the fortunes of the day.
