“Though wearied, we knew the struggle was yet to be renewed. The enemy soon came, now in greater force, but our little band met them with as much determination as ever. Our men fell fast around us. Federals pressed on, crossed the railroad cut and slowly compelled us, step by step, to yield. Here again our men fought the enemy at a few yards.”
- Maj. Edward McCrady
1st South Carolina Infantry
