Maj. Gen. William. H. French and Maj. Gen. G.K. Warren, USA
Both sides had brigades in action.
There were under 200 casualties for the two days.
On October 13, Stuart, with Fitzhugh Lee and Lomax's brigades, skirmished with the rearguard of the Union III Corps near Auburn. Finding himself cut off by retreating Federal columns, Stuart secreted his troopers in a wooded ravine until the unsuspecting Federals moved on.
The next day as the Federal army withdrew towards Manassas Junction, Owens and Smyth's Union brigades (of Warren's II Corps) fought a rearguard action against Stuart's cavalry and infantry of Harry Hays's division near Auburn. Stuart's cavalry boldly bluffed Warren's infantry and escaped disaster. The II Corps pushed on to Catlett Station on the Orange & Alexandria Railroad.
