George,

Read the book "Coverd with Glory" it is about the 26 North Carolina regiment and it follows where the action took place on July 1st and the 3rd..It also tells you where Pettigrews Brigade was...The 26th was part of Pettigrews Brigade..That Regiment was commanded by Col Bergwyn who was 21 years old at the time...They went into battle on the 1st of July through Herbst woods head on into the Iron Brigade..They were 800 strong and after the 1st day could only muster 232 counting any officers that were still alive...Again on the third day of battle they were part of Longstreets assult and part of Pettigrews Division..(Pettigrew taking command after Heath took a ball to the Head)...They left Gettysburg with a muster of 83....
