Army CSA
Corps 3
Division 3
Brigade Artillery
Commander Maj. William T. Poague
Location West Confederate Avenue, opposite Virginia Monument
C. S. A.

July 2. The howitzers in the lunettes nearby belonged to the batteries of Poague's Battalion. One to Ward's. Two to Brooke's. One to Wyatt's. One to Graham's. But on this day they were detached and kept under shelter from the fire of the Union artillery which they could not return by reason of their short range.

July 3. In the morning the lunettes were constructed and the howitzers placed in them to meet a possible advance of the Union forces but as this did not occur they took no active part in the battle.

July 4. At dusk they withdrew from the field with their battalion and began the march to Hagerstown.
