ntly with the Confederates.
In the meantime the Federal forces were not idle.
The two remaining divisions of the first corps had come on the ground.
The first under Robinson was held for a time in reserve on Seminary Ridge, and the other under Rowley was advanced to the support of Wadsworth.
General Howard, with the eleventh corps, was also near at hand.
He had ridden in advance of his corps, and upon arriving on the field, took over the command from Doubleday, and turned over the command once and valor, which earlier in the day had withstood for so many hours the Confederate assaults.
Wadworth's division in the centre of the first corps, had continued the fight from the time it relieved the cavalry, and now with the assistance of Rowley's and Robinson's divisions was still holding its antagonists at bay. Nothing, however, could finally resist the rushes of Pender's fresh troops, and after many fierce struggles the first corps with its batteries was driven back to Seminary Ridge.
