Lee; and the Thirty-third, Lieutenant-Colonel Hoke; and also two temporarily attached regiments, the Twelfth North Carolina, Col. B. O. Wade, and Forty-fifth Georgia—in all seven regiments—and Latham's North Carolina battery, that joined him the night before the battle.

We, at the same time, were enfiladed by grapeshot; neither fire upon the flank or front at all stopped the men, but on they pressed, and soon silenced the fire. In this charge, Col. C. C.

A regiment of Federals, moving across his front and exposing a flank, was scattered by a volley. Pender continued to move forward, driving off a batt

General Garnett, who hurried there, was wounded, as were Major Lane and Colonel Cunningham. The double fire was severe, and Campbell's whole brigade gave way. Crawford pushed on until he struck Taliaferro's flank. This brigade was already hotly engaged with Geary, and as Crawford's men rushed steadily on, a these battles: In Law's brigade was the Sixth regiment, Maj. R. F.
