Of that battle the climax wai the assault of Pickett's divisiou, the flower of Virginia, against Webb's front of tbe left of Ce tery Hill. Before tbe heroio Armitage called carried Gibbon's battery with a rush, tbe division had met with a variety of experience during its inile and-a-Lalf advance over the smooth ground up to the oreBt. 'When it first into sight it bad been piled with solid shot; then half way across it had been vigorously shelled, aud tbe double canisters had been reserved for its nearer approach. An enfilading fire tore through its ranks; the musketry blazsd forth against it with deadly effect.' This Is the evidence of an eye-witness on tbe opposite Bide, who adds: 'But It magnifim-utly.' to cold steel and clubbed after a desperate strnggle, it went back foiled, to the eompauimeuts which had marked its ad vauoe.
