re from a Federal regiment posted behind a stone wall, in which Colonel Kirkland was wounded, and a large number of officers and privates were killed or disabled. His wound kept him from service with his regiment until the Gettysburg campaign, when he resumed command, the brigade then being under command of Gen. R. F. Hoke, and temporarily under Col. I. E. Avery, and participated in the desperate fighting of July 1st and 2d. In August, 1863, he was promoted to brigadier-general, and on September 7th was assigned to command of General Pettigrew's old brigade of Heth's division, A. P. Hill's corps, consisting of the Eleventh, Twenty-sixth, Forty-fourth, Forty-seventh and Fifty-second North Carolina regiments. With this command he took a gallant part in the battle of Bristoe, October 14th, where the North Carolinians suffered heavily in a hasty attack upon largely superior forces of the enemy, and he fell severely wounded. His gallantry was commended in the reports of Heth and Hill.
