Two corps of this army moved to oppose him — Ewell by the old turnpike, and Hill by the plankroad. They arrived this morning in close proximity to the enemy's line of march. A strong attack was made upon Ewell, who repulsed it, capturing many prisoners and four pieces of artillery. The enemy subsequently concentrated upon Gen.
