This brigade relieved Hazen's in the Brock Field soon after 3 o'clock p.m., being in an isolated position, General Turchin moved to the right and formed in two lines on the left of Cruft's Brigade of Palmer's Division. At 4:30 p.m. the enemy attacked with great persistence and was finally repelled by a charge of Turchin's Brigade which wheeled upon the enemy's right, while Cruft's Brigade charged to the front. At the close of this engagement Turchin's Brigade joined King's in the vicinity of the Poe House where it bivouacked.
