I think you are right. Early's brigade pretty much held up a whole Union division on the Confederate right flank singlehandedly (of course, he did have just as many troops in his brigade as his attackers did in their division). That allowed Jackson to get reinforcements to the left. But, yes, he did handle the situation quite well and was able to coordinate a pretty well executed attack later on in the day. My two cents.
