Far and wide the ridge was strewn with the dead, and the Peach Orchard was a slaughter-pen indeed I The Third Corps was defeated and forced to a hasty retreat, but it was not yet out of the fight. Stuart's brigades had been better positioned to guard their captured wagon train than to take advantage of the encounter with Kilpatrick.
