Again Manning recaptured guns.

Later in the day a courier from General Long came and informed me that he wanted some artillerists to go and mann some of our recaptured guns near the ‘Bloody Angle.’ As I did not happen to be engaged just then, I ordered my first lieutenant to take charge of my battery and I took my second lieutenant and about half of my men and fought those recaptured guns until late in the evening, when I returned to my battery and soon went into camp.
