(September 16, 1862.)
Doubleday's Division crossed the Antietam at Pry's Ford on the afternoon of Sept. 16, and moved across the fields in a westerly direction in a column parallel to the other divisions.
It reached this point after dark and formed on the extreme right of the Corps, Hofmann and Patrick's Brigades in line parallel to this road and facing west. Phelps' and Gibbon's Brigades about 200 yards to the rear in support.
Outposts were established in the fields to the west, connecting with those of Meade's Division on the left.
