Colonel Oates described his Company K as "an Irish company" stating that "a large percentage of this company were Irish laborers." Company K was heavily involved in the ferocious and critical battle for possession of Little Round Top against the Twentieth Maine Volunteer Infantry on July 2, 1863. Some say that Oates liked the Irish because of his own ethnic background. It could also have been because they were as tough as he was.
