2nd Brigade, 1st Division, 1st Corps

14th. [Brooklyn] Infantry, N.Y.S.M. [84th N.Y. Vols.]
2d. Brig. 1st. Division. 1st. Corps.
Here at about 9 p.m. July 2nd, 1863, the Regiment while moving from its position to the left of this to reinforce Greene's Brigade, unexpectedly encountered the advance of Johnson's Division of Ewell's Corps, which had crossed the abandoned works and was advancing toward the Baltimore Pike. By opening fire on them the Regiment caused them to halt until the 12th Corps returned and drove them back.

At daylight July 3rd, the Regiment rejoined the Brigade but soon afterwards moved again to the right to reinforce the 12th. Corps and fought in the trenches and lay in reserve until the repulse of the enemy.

In the first day's battle this Regiment was heavily engaged with the 1st. Corps at the Railroad beyond the Seminary as indicated by a monument there.

It lost in the battle 13 killed, 105 wounded and 99 missing.
