In the early morning of the 1sth General Franklin succeeded, after a hard fight, in forcing the Confederates, under General Howell Cobb, from Crampton's Gap, six miles from Harper's Ferry, and was through the pass four hours before the surrender of General Miles on Bolivar Heights.
On the night of the 14th, he withdrew his forces from South Mountain, concentrating his army west of Antietam Creek, his right extending south below what is now known as Burnside's bridge over said creek, his center resting in front of the village of Sharpsburg, Maryland, and extending north in the direction of the Dunker church, his left extending in front of and north of said church, his extreme left being refused and resting near a bend of the Potomac River.
