Counters for Berry’s Brigade of Kearny’s Division in Heintzelman’s Corps, Army of the Potomac (3 / 3 / III).  This Brigade came to the rescue of Casey’s Division when the battle heated up on 31 May 1862.  They essentially swapped positions with Casey’s men, and took up positions at the rifle pits between the Williamsburg Road and the railroad tracks.
The 3rd and 5th Michigan regiments were commended for continued bravery (having been heavily engaged at Williamsburg as well).
With the completion of this brigade, all of the primary units that were engaged at Fair Oaks / Seven Pines have been researched.  As mentioned before, there were two other Corps across the Chickahominy on the North side.  They did not take part in the battle, but my research indicates that they could have.  However, it would have been dangerous because of the condition of the bridges as well as the various Confederate units and batteries positioned across the river.
