July 3. Advanced to the front about daybreak. Later in the morning took position on the ridge west of the Emmitsburg Road 200 yards from the Roger's House and remained there for hours unengaged. When the signal guns were fired about 1 P. M. moved forward to the crest of the hill and took an active part in the cannonade. But its ammunition being exhausted as Longstreet's infantry was advancing and all efforts to procure a fresh supply proving fruitless the Battery was withdrawn.

July 4. In line of battle all day with the left wing of McLaws' Division. Marched at sunset to Black Horse Tavern.
