Col. Samuel Holmes' Brigade and the 11th Ohio Battery arrived behind Col. John Sanborn's Brigade. Holmes' Brigade was deployed behind the artillery to the west of the Utica Road, and the 11th Ohio went into battery between the 1st Illinois and 8th Michigan batteries. On the Union right, when the 7th Missouri of Brig. Gen. John Stevenson’s brigade was driven back, Maj. Gen. James McPherson ordered Holmes' 10th Missouri and both Ohio to Stevenson’s support. Upon the arrival of these two regiments, Stevenson pulled his troops back to conceal his movements, and placed the 10th Missouri on his right and the both Ohio in reserve. Capt. Greenberry F. Wiles arrived with his Pioneer Company and was placed on the left of the 7th Missouri. When Stevenson’s reinforced Union line advanced, the Confederates were compelled to withdraw from the field.
