Second Auburn, Virginia, also known as Auburn or Auburn Mill, or Auburn Ford or Coffee Hill or Catlett’s Station. As the Union Army of the Potomac withdrew towards Manassas Junction, Brigadier-General Joshua Thomas Owen’s brigade (3/3/II) and the 12th New Jersey Infantry from Colonel Thomas Alfred Smyth’s (2/3/II) Union brigades fought a rearguard action against Major-General James Ewell Brown Stuart’s cavalry.
The ground at the crossing of Cedar Run just south of Auburn was deeply muddied by the passing of the Union II Corps during the night. The wagon trains had difficulty traversing the mud and the slopes of the creek so Major-General Gouverneur Kemble Warren ordered Brigadier-General John Curtis Caldwell and Brigadier-General Alexander Hays to deploy their divisions as protection. Caldwell moved to secure the high ground north of the creek and guarded the rear of the column and the wagon train as it continued to Catlett’s Station. Caldwell’s men set up camp on a prominent hill and began to make breakfast. The hill was later dubbed Coffee Hill. Caldwell formed a skirmish line facing northeast towards Warrenton with the 10th New York Infantry in advance as vedettes.
At 6:15 am, the advance guard of a Confederate brigade from Major-General Robert Emmett Rodes’ division approached the 10th New York and skirmishing broke out. The sound of gunfire carried to the ravine where Confederate Major-General James Ewell Brown Stuart was hiding and he dispatched scouts to reconnoitre the situation. Upon discovering the Union camp on Coffee Hill, Stuart ordered Major Robert F Beckham’s Horse Artillery into action on a rise to the east of Coffee Hill. The Confederates opened a barrage on the Union men, catching them by surprise. Caldwell turned his batteries on Coffee Hill to face Beckham’s guns and moved his line to the western slope of the hill to protect them against the artillery fire. Warren then dispatched Hays’ division, led by the 125th New York Infantry, to dislodge Beckham’s artillery. To protect Beckham as he limbered his guns for a withdrawal, Stuart sent Brigadier-General James Byron Gordon’s cavalry brigade to counter the Union advance with a charge. The charge temporarily stopped the Union advance and intense skirmishing ensued. Stuart ordered Gordon to charge again to provide cover for his cavalry to escape to the southeast. Gordon fell wounded but Stuart made his escape and looped around the Union position, joining Major-General Jubal Anderson Early and Major-General Fitzhugh Lee, who were posted to the southwest of Auburn.
While Stuart’s command was escaping encirclement, the battle intensified. Rodes’ division advanced on Coffee Hill and Caldwell repositioned his artillery back to the west to check the Confederate advance. Rodes pressed the attack from 8 am to 9 am with Early’s and Fitzhugh Lee’s divisions joining the action from the southwest. By 10 am, the fight had stalled and an hour-long artillery duel ensued.
The fighting ended after the Union column had passed safely to Catlett’s Station. Caldwell withdrew to the east, pressed for a short time by Rodes. By 1 pm, all fighting had ceased and the Confederates withdrew. The Confederates had successfully extricated Stuart’s command from the risk of capture while the Union had managed to protect their vulnerable wagon trains. Caldwell continued his march towards Bristoe Station. Estimated casualties were 113 in total, of which 24 were Union. The Union claimed 24 prisoners. (CWSAC Limited Battle – Inconclusive)

Cedar Run, Virginia. Confederate Colonel Thomas Ruffin’s 1st North Carolina Cavalry attacked the Union troops of II Corps as they were crossing Cedar Run. Union skirmishers deployed and repelled the attack, mortally wounding Ruffin. Determined to press the rear of the Union retrograde, General Robert Edward Lee ordered Lieutenant-General Ambrose Powell Hill to pursue the Union army eastwards along the railroad. Meanwhile, the Union II Corps pushed on to Catlett’s Station on the Orange & Alexandria Railroad.

Bristoe Station, Virginia. At 3 am, Union Major-General Gouverneur Kemble Warren’s II Corps broke camp at Three Mile Station and headed for Catlett’s Station. Attempting to cut off the withdrawal of the Army of the Potomac from Warrenton Junction, Confederate Lieutenant-General Ambrose Powell Hill’s III Corps left Warrenton at dawn and, after a fifteen-mile march, reached Greenwich where it encountered the tail of the retreating Union army at Bristoe Station. It appeared that half of a Union Corps was bunched on the southern bank waiting to cross and therefore offered a temptingly vulnerable target. This was part of the Union III Corps. Hill decided to attack the rearguard of the Union II Corps before it crossed Broad Run. At noon, Union Major-General Gouverneur Kemble Warren saw Major-General Heth’s Confederate division deploying to advance against him, and he rapidly deployed his II Corps behind an embankment of the Orange & Alexandria Railroad near Bristoe Station. Hill was impetuous to seize the opportunity and sent Heth into the attack without proper reconnaissance of what he thought were isolated troops partially across Broad Run. He sent for Major-General Richard Heron Anderson to hurry up with his division to provide support . Brigadier-General John Rogers Cooke’s and Brigadier-General William Whedbee Kirkland’s brigades of Heth’s division deployed immediately, while the other two were still marching towards the field. Cooke’s and Kirkland’s brigades advanced eastwards to cut off the crossing of Broad Run, capturing a battery of artillery on the way.
Hill was unaware of the presence of Caldwell’s division, which had recently arrived from its action at Auburn. Caldwell had taken up a strong concealed position behind the embankment of the Orange & Alexandria Railroad embankment. Heth’s men were surprised by the devastating fire from these three divisions and the artillery of II Corps to the southeast. Instead of turning north across the stream to escape this fire, the two brigades of Confederates wheeled south and charged the Union positions. Hill reinforced his line but could make little headway against the determined and more numerous defenders, which had the support of artillery firing over the heads of the infantry. Despite this fire, Heth’s men briefly secured a foothold in the lines of Colonel James E Mallon’s brigade of Brigadier-General Alexander Stewart Webb’s 2nd Division, II Corps. The Confederates were soon driven back and five guns of a Confederate battery were captured in the Union counterattack. Warren, seeing Confederate Lieutenant-General Ewell’s II Corps coming up quickly on his left, decided to withdraw. The Union retreat was undisturbed to Centreville where they deployed again to stand their ground. The attack at Bristoe Station was a serious defeat for the Confederates and halted their northward march.
Mallon was killed in the fighting. Kirkland and Cooke were both seriously wounded, and Brigadier-General Carnot Posey was mortally wounded. Total Confederate losses were about 1,950 to 1,980 men, including about 450 prisoners. Union losses were about 300 men, including no more than fifty men killed. (CWSAC Major Battle Union Victory)
