On the second day those troops captured the first line of earthworks, those earthworks was probably the ones the federals were digging on the second day.

If you're talking Jackson's Corps, they attacked Culp's Hill on Day 1, Day 2, and Day 3. Jackson's Corps did become the Second Corps in November 1862 and then was broken up following his death with Ewell commanding the Second Corps and A.P. Hill commanding the newly formed Thrid Corps.

And if you mean the Stonewall Brigade, they were a part of Edward "Allegheny" Johnson of the Second Corps and did fight at Culp's Hill on the 2nd and 3rd days.
