Coburn's Brigade Marker  



Text:

Four regiments ~ 33d & 85th Ind., 19th Mich. & 22d Wis. ~ Col. John Coburn´s brigade, Ward´s 3d div., 20th A.C., were posted in this sector ~ the 22d Wis. on the ridge as skirmishers, the other three in the ravine N. of the road.

The left of Featherston´s brigade [Confederate], swept N. across the road, driving & pursuing the 22d Wis. down the slope, only to be assailed in turn by Coburn´s regiments advancing from the ravine, aided by the left of Harrison´s & the right of Wood´s brigades.
Featherston withdrew to the barricades at the road, but a lack of support on right & left forced his withdrawal.
