Early in the morning of the 2d July, Wilcox's brigade began to take position, but finding that three regiments of Yankee sharp shooters had anticipated them and were occupying the position they had intended to take, Wilcox's men engaged the Yankees, and after a sharp fight drove them off, and occupied the ground from which the Yankees had just been driven. This brigade, with Perry and Wilcox, were formed on the right of Hill's corps, and the left of Longstreet's being joined on to Barksdale's brigade, of McLaws's division. --
