  • Sorry, that's incorrect
    Answer:

    Emerson Opdycke.  Emerson Opdycke led a brigade in Wagner's division.  When Wagner ordered him to join the rest of the brigade in his advanced line, Opdycke refused.  He instead marched his men to a position about two hundred yards north of the Carter House and allowed them to fall out and prepare breakfast.  When the meal was interrupted by clouds of terrified soldiers fleeing the carnage at the breastworks, Opdycke threw his brigade forward to stabilize the line at bayonet point.
