This chapter is comprised of four parts. Part one describes the reorganization and start of a new campaign. After the eventful rest of the Jeff Davis Artillery, which was a critical period because of the changes in the upper ranks, there was a major realignment of the army of North Virginia, which had quite an effect upon the role of the Artillery. Part two talks about the collision of the Confederates and the Union. The Jeff Davis Artillery had seen a good deal of action and had performed in its usual alacrity and skill. Part three of this chapter talks about the travel of the Alabamians towards the north of the town, next to Carlisle Road. The Alabamians became unwitting victims of an unfortunate set of circumstances, which had caused them to be inactive. Part four talks about the retreat of the enemy.
