---As the Confederates advance from Bean’s Station, the lead division, under Micah Jenkins, runs into at least a division of Federal infantry that advanced from Rutledge, where Gen. Parke is with the Ninth Corps. Longstreet promises reinforcements, but is unable to deliver. Martin’s Rebel cavalry finally flanks the new Union line, and shells it with flanking artillery fire, but Jenkins is unable to advance with just his brigade. Longstreet calls off the advance.
