      Gang;

      Once the Sunken Road section of the Confederate battle line was
      successfully breached by Richardson's division of the US II Corps
      (along with some additional support from units of other Corps,
      IIRC) and the Confederate survivors retreated from the lane
      through the Piper Cornfield and Orchard, IIRC they increasingly
      came under successful Federal artillery fire.

      If my memory is correct, which Federal batteries were firing on
      the Confederate defenders in the Sunken Road sector and where
      were those batteries posted?

      Thanks for your input!
