Buford's cavalry division was deployed along Seminary Ridge. He had two batteries to support his dismounted troopers. These he posted adjacent to the road. From here they did significant damage to Heth's Confederates as they tried to deploy and advance on the thin blue line.
By day's end, Archer's brigade was pretty well spent in its attack on the Union left flank, but Pettigrew was on the verge of crushing Devin's brigade on the right, Devin himself being mortally wounded on the last turn. Tomorrow the game will resume with Merideth's Iron Brigade making its appearance. Cutler's regiments will soon follow. The rebels also have two more brigades coming on, so things are still very much up in the air. Heth's losses have been heavy; Buford's moderate. Here are some pictures from today's action.
