Ramseur's Brigade

2nd. 4th. 14th. 30th. North Carolina Infantry

July 1 Soon after Iverson's and O'Neal's Brigade had each suffered the repulse of three regiments with heavy losses Ramseur's Brigade moved from its position here and vigorously assailed the right wing of the Union forces. The 14th and 30th regiments with O'Neal's 3rd Alabama turned the flank of the Union troops while the 2nd and 4th regiments together with Doles's Brigade and part of O'Neal's struck them in the rear. A struggle ensued in which both sides suffered severely and the conflict here only ended with the retreat of the Union Corps from Seminary Ridge. In that retreat the Brigade made active pursuit and captured many prisoners.
