Re: 15th Alabama Inf at Gettsburg
Companies "B" through "L"; ten companies with an average present for duty of forty officers and men each. Before the regiment advanced, a detail of two men from each company had been sent with canteens after water. These men never rejoined the regiment during the assault. Captain Shaaf's Company "A" had been sent around Little Round Top to capture Federal ordnance trains, but could not accomplish its mission.
