(September 17, 1862.)
About 7:30 A.M. Col. George T. Anderson's Brigade moved from Cemetery Hill to the left near the Dunkard Church.
The Federal Batteries beyond the Antietam continued their heavy fire, which was answered by Confederate guns.
Five Companies of the 11th Georgia Infantry re-enforced the right of Toombs' Brigade opposite Snavely's Ford and, about 1 P.M., Toombs was driven from Burnside Bridge and Snavely's Ford by the Ninth Corps, which crossed at those points and, about 3 P.M., advanced upon Sharpsburg. At that hour Toombs was slowly falling back to the Antietam Furnace Road west of this point.
