Hill's, assisted by a few pieces of artillery. R. H. Anderson came to the support of this line too, and formed in rear. The Fifth Alabama, on Rodes's riRodes's right, was being enfiladed by battery fire, and Rodes gave directions to retire it, when the whole brigade, through a misapprehension of orders, moved back, making a gap which was immediately occupied by the Federals.

omposed of the divisions of A. P. Hill, Early, and D. H. Hill under Rodes, and Trimble under Colston. The Federal general's designs were he would take Howard's line in reverse and not in front.

Rodes, who led with so much spirit, says: The enemy, taken in flank and red so rapidly that it went over the enemy's works at Dowdall's with Rodes's troops, and both divisions fought with mixed ranks until dark. I in rank, had been disabled shortly after Jackson was struck down. Rodes, as modest as he was daring, was next in rank to Hill, but in a conard-Hill's division in the first line, Trimble's in the second, and Rodes's in the rear.

Johnson's, Early's, and Rodes's divisions, in order named, were located on the curve and through all house on the Carlisle road north of the town, Ewell, Early, and Rodes. The Confederate commander was anxious at first that Ewell and pes of Culp's Hill to start first, then Early up Cemetery Hill, and Rodes to advance on Early's right.

Grant re-enforced Hancock by the Sixth Corps and by two of Warren's divisions, after failing to get Warren and Burnside in at other points. He then had over half of his army-over fifty thousand men-holding on to the advantage gained, while Lee, equally as determined, purposed to retake the position. Rodes's, Ramseur's, and Gordon's troops, three brigades under McGowan, Perrin, and Harris, and two battalions of artillery were put in, and all day the savage contest raged. Late in the night Lee drew back his troops on the new line.
