JUNE 3-AUGUST 1, 1863.--The Gettysburg Campaign
O.R.-- SERIES I--VOLUME XXVII/2 [S# 44]
HDQRS. MAHONE'S BRIGADE, ANDERSON'S DIVISION,
July 10, 1863.
THOMAS S. MILLS,
Maj A. G., Anderson's Div., Third Corps, Army Northern Va.
MAJOR: The operations of this brigade in the battle of Gettysburg, Pa., may be summed up in a few brief remarks.
The brigade took no special or active part in the actions of that battle beyond that which fell to the lot of its line of skirmishers.
During the days and nights of July 2 and 3, the brigade was posted in line of battle immediately in front of the enemy, and in support of Pegram's batteries. In this front its skirmishers were quite constantly engaged, and inflicted much loss upon the enemy, and, after the repulse of our troops on the 3d, maintained firmly its line.
During the 2d and 3d, the brigade was exposed to a large share of the terrific shelling of those days, and from which its loss was mainly sustained.
Casualties in the battle: Killed, 8 men; wounded, 2 officers and 53 men; missing, 39 men; total, 102.
I have the honor to be, major, very respectfully, your obedient servant,
