It was the left most regiment in Cutler's Brigade, which deployed along McPherson Ridge as the infantry of 1st Division I Corps replaced the cavalry in the fighting line during the morning phases of the fighting on July 1. The Brooklyn Regiment would soon turn to the north when Davis' Confederate Brigade threatened to overrun Hall's Battery.
