On all fronts. In formations with little or no “holes” between them for enemy to pry into. And with more men now than the Union. Timing and angle of strike nearly always to Confederate advantage, as if LEE himself, at his best, were working the tactical controls hands-on (he’s not). MEADE continues working at his Maryland headquarters. In the northeast (O’Neal and Iverson having met their ruin), Daniel hits Stone a second time— —failing in back-and-forth heavy fighting. Perseverant, Daniel has re-tried essentially the same attack as his first, calling it off when he sees it won’t work.

Reynolds gallops back up toward the action [5–6], spurring on Cutler’s quick-timing men as he passes them.  . But they have held long enough. The first units of Cutler’s infantry pour up onto the ridge, relieving Buford and allowing his units to slide left and right (north/south) out of the battle line to rest from their hours of killing labor (and eventually to regroup). Riding about the field of battle through air alive with bullets, Reynolds cheers his Yankees on, directing and positioning each troop unit as it comes up, showing utter disregard for his own safety.
