However, the dog did in fact go forward with the 2nd MD Bn. in Steuart's Brigade attack on 3 July. It was killed at some time during one of the assaults by the Marylanders against troops of BGen. Thomas L. Kane, commanding 2nd Brigade, 2nd Division, XII Corps, on Culp's Hill.
General Kane wrote afterward that the dog ""came in among the Boys in Blue as if he supposed they were what in better days they might have been, merely the men of another noisy hose or engine company, competing for precedence with his masters in the smoke of a burning building. At first--some of my men said, he barked in valorous glee; but I myself first saw him on three legs between our own and the Men in Gray on the ground as though looking for a dead master, or seeking on which side he might find an explanation of the Tragedy he witnessed, intelligible to his canine apprehension. He licked someone's hand, they said, after he was perfectly riddled." Kane ordered the dog to be honorably buried "as the only Christian minded being on either side."" [Harry W.
