Hébert's Division was the other division in Price’s Two Division Corps and aligned to left of Maury’s Division and this division attacked the right flank of the Federal line and drove it south. Between the early hours of the fourth, Van Dorn ordered artillery bombardment with fourteen of his guns to soften up the union lines which was met with Union artillery which quickly silenced the Confederate guns. At 7 a.m. Hébert informed Van Dorn he was too ill to lead his division and Brig. Gen Martin Green assumed command of the division, by orders from Van Dorn.
