And before moving, on the first, I received orders to follow in rear of Johnson's division of Ewell's corps, which had been detached from the corps to conduct the 1st of July, in the order of march, and had not been long in place before Johnson's division appeared.
After it had passed I went to Major Fairfax, of General s early as was expected, but before notice could be sent to General Ewell, General Johnson had already become engaged, and it was too late to recall him; and then goll and Ewell when made.
Ewell's divisions were not made to act in concert — Johnson, Early, Rodes acting in succession.
General Lee always expressed the strongal communications with Baltimore; but upon the statements of General Ewell and Johnson that the positions in their front could be carried, he did not change his plan.
He urged concert of action on the 3d, but Johnson's division fought and suffered in the morning alone, and Pickett's attack in the afternoon was unsupported.
