Brigadier General Joseph B. Kershaw's South Carolina Brigade of McLaw's Division ordered on the afternoon of July 2, 1863 to attack the Union battle line north and east of the Rose Farm 100 yards eastward. Crossed the Emmitsburg Road in this area. By nightfall their attack, joined with those of other Confederate Brigades, had forced the Union troops from the Peach Orchard and Wheatfield. Late on July 3 the Brigade withdrew and went into position in the woods a quarter mile west.
