d the works at that point. This movement was made rapidly and continued till the left of Field rested just beyond the Williamsburg road. Johnson's and Haskell's battalions of artillery were moved with the infantry, and placed in suitable positions along the line. When the head of the column reached the Williamsburg road, the enemy were already advancing a strong line of skirmishers on the works at that point.

This movement was made rapidly and continued till the
