   On the night of September 16, Rodes' Brigade bivouacked in the field east of Piper's House. On the morning of the 17th it moved to the Bloody Lane, its center a few feet north of this point.

Supported by the Brigade of G. B. Anderson on the right and by remnants of the Brigades of Colquitt and Garland on the left, it withstood several assaults of French's Division of Sumner's Corps, but its right flank having been turned by the advance of Richardson's Division, it was compelled to retire in the direction of Sharpsburg.

Location:   south side of the Bloody Lane (Map 3)
