July 2. After participating in the operations of July 1st at Barlow Knoll and elsewhere it took position in the afternoon between the town and Rock Creek. When the assault was made at 8 P. M. on East Cemetery Hill the Brigade advanced to its support but was halted here because the expected reenforcements were unable to cooperate and it was evident that the assault would fail.
