20th New York State Militia
Ulster Guard
(80th N.Y. Infantry)

From a position south of this point the 20th New York State Militia delivered a most destructive fire into the attacking southerners' right flank. As the enemy infantry moved obliquely to the left, the New York Regiment advanced north along this line firing as they moved to the right. Occupying a new position near the copse of trees the Ulster Guard fought to repel Longstreet's assault, finally charging a group of Confederates, driving them from the shelter of the slashing.
