the union forces of general ambrose burnside and major george sykes attacked the position of confederate general evans. by now evans had been reinforced by general bee and colonel francis bartow with wade hampton's legion in reserve at the stone house. colonel william t. sherman crossed bull run at an unguarded ford and struck the right flank of the confederate defenders of mathews hill. the confederate line collapsed around 11:30 am sending them in a disorderly retreat to henry hill. matthews hill is stop number 4 on the battlefield auto tour.
