C. S. A.
ARMY OF NORTHERN VIRGINIA
HILL'S CORPS ANDERSON'S DIVISION
12th 16th 19th 48th Mississippi Infantry
July 2. Arrived and took position here in the morning. Through some misunderstanding
of orders instead of the Brigade advancing in compact ranks in support of
the troops on its right in their assault on the Union lines the regiments
were ordered forward at different times. Deployed as skirmishers and
fighting in detachments they pushed back the Union outposts and drove
some artillerists for awhile from their guns but did not join in the
attack upon the Union position on Cemetery Ridge.
July 3. Was held in reserve here supporting artillery in its front.
Present 1150 Killed 12 Wounded 71 Total 83
