Union 3pm

Humphreys redresses his lines and holds on


On Culps Hill, the Union batters Doles with fire, and sends a lone brigade downhill to try and follow up Doles where they checked the Rebel advance. But advancing into a wall of Rebel musketry from the occupied positions at the foot of the hill, and enfiladed as they advance, it soon looks like a grave error...the rest of the Union fire is relatively ineffective, and none of the Union divisions on Cullps hill manage to rally to follow up as well.

The next Confederate turn could see some more "sweeping from the field..."

Except on their right where the heroic Humphrey's proves that his genius decision to occupy the wheatfield was right all along.
