15th Alabama Infantry
Maj. A. A. Lowther

"On the right the Federals were in an old field in plain view, and the 15th Alabama got in some deadly work at a right oblique. The Federals just simply jammed up against the embankment opposite the right of the 15th. They were so thick that it was impossible to miss them. What a slaughter! What a slaughter of men that was."
- Sgt. William A. McLendon
