over to a subordinate because of Illness. He rallied, left his ambulance, and led the Brigade when it charged Burnside's penetration of Lee's right flank. After this performance, Archer had to relinquish command again the next day. At Chancellorsville, the Brigade reorganised into the same structure that it was to take to Gettysburg where it was one of only four mixed-states brigades. It became embroiled in the fighting around Catherine Furnace on May 2. The next day it captured the vital high ground at Hazel Grove.

Partially because Archer loathed Pender, the Brigade left the former Light Division and entered Heth's newly-formed division.

Heth's Division - Davis' Brigade

When Brigadier-General Joseph Davis' Brigade marched along the Chambersburg Pike toward Gettysburg on July 1, its 2,200 or so soldiers were being led into battle by an officer without combat experience. That inexperience was to have a devastating impact on the Brigade's fate.

Brigadier-General Joseph Robert Davis, 38, was Jefferson Davis' nephew and had neither military training nor combat experience when he approached Gettysburg.

The Brigade was one of four mixed-state units in the Army of Northern Virginia during the Gettysburg Campaign. Half of the Brigade had an unsurpassed fighting record.

The 2nd and 11th Mississippi regiments formed in Corinth in April and May 1861, respectively. Both regiments rushed to Virginia to help defend that state from Federal invasion. The entire 2nd and two companies of the 11th fought In Brigadier-General Bee's Brigade at First Manassas.

Bee's Brigade was in the forefront of the fighting, losing a staggering 405 casualties, a total exceeded on
