Rodes's Early's and Johnson's Divisions

July 4 Having withdrawn under orders from its previous positions the Corps formed line about daybreak on this ridge with its right a short distance south of the Hagerstown Road its left near the Mummasburg Road and its center near here. Rodes was on the right Johnson on the left and Early on a supporting line in their rear. The breastwork of stone here and the old earthworks beyond the railroad are remains of defenses then thrown up and indicate the position of the front line.
