Garnett's Brigade

8th. 18th. 19th. 28th. 56th. Virginia Infantry

July 2 Arrived about sunset and bivouacked on the western border of Spangler's Woods.

July 3 In the forenoon formed line on Kemper's left in the field east of the woods. At the cessation of the cannonade advanced and took part in Longstreet's assault on the Union position in the vicinity of the Angle. This advance was made in good order. Under a storm of shells and grape and a deadly fire of musketry after passing the Emmitsburg Road. The lines were much broken in crossing the post and rail fences on both sides of that road but with shattered ranks the Brigade pushed on and took part in the final struggle at the Angle. Gen. R. B. Garnett fell dead from his saddle in front of the stone wall.

July 4 Spent the day in reorganization and during the night began the march to Hagerstown.

Present 1480. Killed 78, wounded 324, missing 539. Total 941.
