Lower Commissary Hill Battery
"Nearly all the pieces stationed upon the Commissary Hill, to guard the approaches to the mill between the left wing and the center, were either dismounted or other wise disabled. Against this point, the enemy had established two batteries of 20 and 30 pounder Parrott guns, and their concentrated fire, told fearfully upon our light guns. Here Captains Bradford and Sparkman, commanding light batteries, were wounded -- the latter mortally."
