3. Reinforcements for the Federal Line
Portions of III Corps, including the 114th Pennsylvania, were moved from a reserve position near the center of Cemetery Ridge to bolster the Federal lines as Longstreet's July 3 assault reached a climax. The line of march was roughly from the south and east of where the Pennsylvania Monument (dome in the distant center) stands today, up to the area of the 114th Monument.
