(note on 435, Swinton) Getty's division, engaged on the 5th, was held in reserve after Wilcox's division was forced back the morning of the 6th. Same page. After a short contest the divisions of Heth and Wilcox, who had expected to have been relieved and were not prepared for the enemy's assault, were overpowered and compelled to retire just as the head of Longstreet's column reached the ground.

We left the Plank road at a point so near the enemy that his balls whistled over our heads, and marching from 9 o'lank of the enemy, and not more than three or four miles from the point at which we had left the Plank road.
