2nd. 5th. 8th. Florida Infantry

July 2 Formed line in forenoon in the eastern border of these Woods. Advanced at 6 p.m. and assisted in forcing the Unoin line on Emmitsburg Road and by rapid pursuit compelled the temporary abandonment of several guns. At the foot of the slope met fresh Union forces and the line on its right retiring it also fell back. The Color-bearer of the 8th Florida fell and its flag was lost.

July 3 Ordered to join Wilcox's Brigade on its left and conform to its movements. Supported Artillery until Longstreet's column started and then advanced in aid of his assault. But dense smoke hiding his oblique course the Brigade moved directly forward. In the gap caused thereby a strong force struck its left flank capturing about half of the 2nd Florida and its colors.

July 4 In line here and at dark began the march to Hagerstown.
