Pettigrew's division advanced with Pickett's, the two commanders joining front in mid-field. As Pettigrew's men approached this wall they were shot down by Union fire from the front and left, forcing the remnants to withdraw. At the same time, Federal soldiers attacked Pickett's front and right, hemming the assaulting Confederates on three sides with heavy fire.
