On the evening of July 2nd 1863, a determined effort was made by Hay's and Hoke's Brigades of Early's Division of Confederate troops to carry cemetery hill by storm. The Union troops supporting the batteries occupying this ground were over whelmed and forced to retire. Wiedrick's Battery was captured and two of Rickett's guns were spiked.
