Two Napoleons and One 12 pounder Howitzer

July 3 The Napoleons advanced before daylight into position 150 yards north of Peach Orchard near the Emmitsburg road but their fire in the forenoon was desultory. Took active part in the cannonade preceding Longstreet's assault and one of the guns supported the infantry attack by pushing forward 450 yards and keeping up a vigorous fire. After the assault was repulsed the Napoleons were moved several hundred yards to the left but soon disabled and sent to the rear. The Howitzer was brought forward and did effective service until withdrawn after dark.

July 4 At 9 a.m. marched with the Battalion to Cashtown to reinforce the cavalry escorting the wagon train.
