2. 99th Pennsylvania Volunteers. Like several other elements of the III Corps, the 99th Pennsylvania had been heavily engaged on July 2 and in need of rest. It was rushed in the afternoon of July 3 from its position in reserve to support the lines near the point of Pickett's Charge. The regiment arrived as the fighting calmed, and saw little to no action here. (Submitted on December 30, 2008, by Craig Swain of Leesburg, Virginia.)
