July 1 Formed line west of Herr's Tavern and crossing the Run at 10 a.m. dislodged 2nd Maine Battery and the 2nd Brigade 1st Division 1st Corps. Threatened on the right it wheeled and occupied railroad cut too deep and steep for defense whereby it lost many prisoners and a stand of colors. Joined later by the 11th Regiment previously on duty guarding trains the Brigade fought until the day's contest ended.

July 2 Lay all day west of the Run. At evening took position near here.

July 3 In Longstreet's assault this Brigade formed the left centre of Pettigrew's Division and advanced to the stone wall south of the Bryan Barn where with regiments shrunken to companies and field officers all disabled further effort was useless.

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

Present on first day about 2000. Killed 180, wounded 717, missing about 500. Total 1397.
