About 5.30 p. m. the battery took up a second position behind the house it had been in front of, and remained there engaged until nearly all the ammunition with the pieces was exhausted. The caissons were sent to the rear after the first position was abandoned.

Both these pieces were taken entirely of the field and beyond fire. It was afterward found necessary to abandon them on the road. The statements of the officers who had them in charge are appended.
