From the War Department marker on the Gettysburg battlefield:
Army of Northern Virginia
July 1. Soon after arriving here it opened an enfilading fire on the Union forces near the Chambersburg Pike causing some to seek shelter in the railroad cuts. Their guns replied slowly but not without inflicting some losses on the Battery in its exposed position. Later in the day it moved to the foot of the ridge to aid Doles’ Brigade in repelling the Eleventh Corps and rendered effective service. When the fight ended by the withdrawal of the First Corps it pursued the Union forces to the edge of the town.
