From the marker to the Charlotte Artillery on the Gettysburg battlefield:

July 2. Late in the evening the Napoleons were placed in position here*.

July 3. At 7 A. M. they opened on the Union position but were soon ordered to cease firing as they drew 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 Howitzers remained in the rear and were 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.
