Moving south about 3 mi. E., the XX Federal Corps (McCook) was stopped at Liberty Gap, 6 mi. S.E., by the 5th & 15th Arkansas Inf., of Liddell's Brigade, later reinforced by Cleburne's Division. With its 1st (Jeff C. Davis) & 2nd (R.W. Johnson) Divisions heavily engaged, the XXth Corps sideslipped east to Hoover's Gap, marching thence to Manchester.
