7th Wisconsin Infantry

Col. William W. Robinson

"We soon found that we had to deal with General Ewell's whole division of picked men. We advanced within hailing distance of each other, then halted and laid down, and my God, what a slaughter! No one appeared to know the object of the fight, and there we stood on hour, the men falling all around; but we got no orders to fall back, and Wisconsin men would rather die than fall back without orders."
