July 2 Late in the evening the Parrott and Rifles took position here.

July 3 At 7 a.m. they opened on the Union position but were soon ordered to cease firing as they drew the concentrated fire of several batteries. They afterward took part in all the operations of the artillery during the day including the cannonade which preceded Longstreet's assault. The Howitzer remained in the rear and was not engaged in the battle but held in readiness to resist any advance of the Union forces.

July 4 In the evening about dusk began the march to Hagerstown.
