Around 7:30 p.m. on July 2, the Pennsylvania Reserves reached the wall that ran along the eastern edge of the Wheatfield, having just charged from the northwest slope of Little Round Top against Wofford’s brigade and the remnants of several other Confederate brigades. John Francis Bell, with the 13th Pennsylvania Reserves (First Bucktails), wrote that he went into the timber beyond the wall and noticed “a battery of two [enemy] guns among some rocks up at the corner of the field next the piece of woods which we were making for.” Based on existing accounts, I believe this section was posted on the open bluff between the woods (bordering the west side of the Wheatfield) and the Wheatfield road, in the northwest corner of the Wheatfield. So far as I know the identity of these guns has never been clearly established. Col. E. P. Alexander’s battalion took possession of the high ground at the Peach Orchard about 7 p.m., and it would appear that a section of guns was sent forward to follow behind Wofford’s advance. My suspicion is that this section belonged to Capt. William W. Parker’s battery, which was known to have been posted close to the intersection of the Wheatfield and Emmitsburg roads. The section could have been in position on the bluff by 7:15 p.m. But if they fired at all that evening, it would not have been for very long. The retreating Confederate soldiers did not clear their front until about 7:25 p.m., and sunset came at 7:32 p.m. The two guns might have been withdrawn after dark, joining the rest of Alexander’s battalion in going to the rear to replenish ammunition and obtain a brief rest. In any case, the section was back in the same place by daybreak, according to John Francis Bell, who wrote, “As it became light on the morning of the 3rd I again walked along my line as far as the stone fence and looked about carefully. On Round Top the operations were still obscured but I could see a few of the enemy among the rocks up in the corner of the field where the two cannon were, and I sent a few bullets up there which forced them to take cover, then calling a couple of files who were good shots I instructed them to see that the Johnnies did not work those guns." An hour or so later, an effort was made to capture the Confederate guns by the 6th Pennsylvania Reserves, which crept up through the woods on the north side of the Wheatfield road, while the rest of the brigade tried to distract the gunners and hold them in place. But Confederate infantry pickets, probably from Wofford’s brigade, were posted on the west side of those same woods and gave a timely warning, enabling the guns to limber up and retire. Brig. Gen. Samuel W. Crawford mentions the event in his official report, but refers to the guns as a battery (as does Pennsylvania at Gettysburg, 1: 118). E. W. Woodward’s regimental history of the 2nd Pennsylvania Reserves places this battery at a distance of 1000 yards, which would be back at the Peach Orchard, and claims the 6th Pennsylvania Reserves captured one gun and two caissons, but the latter gun and caissons likely belonged to a Union battery that had been overrun somewhere in the vicinity of the Trostle buildings the previous evening (I think belonging to Pennsylvania Battery C-F). Whether two or four Confederate guns were there on the morning of July 3, they must have been posted on the bluff, because the 6th could not have crept up on Confederate guns that were 1000 yards distant, the last 600 yards being out in the open. Whereas the bluff was some 450 yards from the position of the Pennsylvania Reserves, on the opposite side of the Wheatfield.
