Both sides had roughly a division involved.

There were about 500 casualties.

Early still thought Sheridan was a nervous, cautious commander, and when Sheridan moved troops around he looked for openings to hit the Union columns.

Moving south from Halltown, the Federals reached Berryville on September 3. When Richard Anderson (with only Kershaw's lone infantry division) found elements of Brig. Gen. George Crook's VIII Corps going into camp, he attacked. Results were minor; the Confederates lacked the strength to do much damage, especially as Union reinforcements arrived.

Overnight Early brought up his entire army to at daylight found Sheridan's position too strongly entrenched to assault. The Union XIX Corps and elements of VI Corps were also in position, so Early was now at a disadvantage. The two armies stared at each other for the day, and after dark Early pulled back behind Opequon Creek.
