By mid-morning on September 17, 1862, the flower of the Union Army of the Potomac, Major General Joseph Hooker’s I Corps, lay shattered in a 40-acre cornfield northeast of Sharpsburg, Maryland.
By the same time, Brig. Gen. George Greene's 2nd Division got orders to march toward the Hagerstown Pike. Their objective: A small church near the West Woods.
Brig. Gen. J.B. Kershaw’s South Carolina brigade of Walker’s division, who were now making their appearance on the field south of that church, tried to hold that ground at all costs.
As the 8th, 7th and 3rd South Carolina regiments charged toward Greene’s division, both sides met at the Dunker Church and a dramatic close combat appeared.
The smoke of the battle limited the view, their object was as close as 20 yards away. Greene’s men had a difficult time making out to the church, which lay infront of them, though it was obvious that a large body of Confederates had secreted themselves among the trees and wood that surrounded the little church.
The fighting around the West Woods and at the Dunker Church, were one of the most intense fightings during that day.
