Our regiment was ordered at the same time to move at double-quick to the right, to support Battery I, of the Fifth United States, but had barely got to the place when we were about-faced and marched back to Little Round Top, and thrown into line in front of Battery D, of the Fifth United States, at once opening a brisk fire on the enemy's sharpshooters, who were occupying the Devil's Den and the rocks around (Submitted on January 1, 2009, by Craig Swain of Leesburg, Virginia.)
