May 2, 1863. Shortly after noon, Sickles' Corps advanced from the Union right-center to attack the "retreating" Confederates. Posey's and Wright's brigades, part of Lee's holding line, met the advance. A rear guard from Jackson's marching column also dropped back to give battle. Units of Howard's XI Corps and Slocum's XII Corps reinforced Sickles, increasing his strength to 20,000 men but weakening the Federal line which Jackson was moving to strike. Fighting continued throughout the day and into the night.
