July 3 Advanced to the front about daybreak. Later in the morning took position on the ridge west of the Emmitsburg road and near the Rogers House but remained inactive until the signal guns were fired some time after noon. Moved forward then to the crest of the hill and took a prominent part in the cannonade. Ammunition was exhausted while Longstreet's column was advancing the last rounds being fired at the Union infantry assailing his right flank. Efforts to procure a fresh supply of ammunition proving unsuccessful the Battery was withdrawn.

July 4 In line of battle all day with the left wing of McLaws's Division. Marched at sunset to Black Horse Tavern.
