July 1 Crossed Willoughby Run about 3.30 p.m. relieving Heth's line and advancing with left flank on Chamberstubrg Pike took part in the struggle until it ended. When the Union forces made their final stand on Seminary Ridge the Brigade charged and aided in dislodging them but suffered heavy losses. Gen. A.M. Scales was wounded and all the field officers but one were killed or wounded.

With few officers to lead them the men advanced in good order through the storm of shot and shell and when the front line neared the Union works they pushed forward to aid it in the final struggle and were among the last to retire.

July 4 After night withdrew and began the march to Hagerstown.
