This chapter describes the skirmishing along the Hanover Road at Brinkerhoff's Ridge on 2 July. On the east slope of Brinkerhoff's Ridge, two and a half miles east of Gettysburg, infantrymen of the Stonewall Brigade guarded the left of the Army of Northern Virginia. They sparred with a series of units of the Army of the Potomac—troops of the Twelfth and the Fifth corps and finally squadrons of Brig. Gen. David McM. Gregg's division of the Cavalry Corps.
