Long Description:
Featherston's Brigade

Gen. W.S. Featherston's Mississippi brigade of Loring’s div., Stewart’s A.C. [confederate] together with Scott’s brigade (on his left), advanced from trenches at & near Loring’s Hill .9 miles S.W. Traversing a broken area of tangled forest the brigade crossed Tanyard Branch under fire from Geary’s batteries west of it & struck Collier Road in this sector.

Dislodging Coburn’s skirmishers ~ the 22d Wis. Posted behind rail barricades at the S. side of the rd., the brigade moved down the slope N. toward Coburn’s & Wood’s positions. Pressed back to the abandoned barricades, front & flank attacks forced its withdrawal.
