Also see . . . Report of Col. Joshua L. Chamberlain. Chamberlain records the effect of Morrill's skirmishers as the 20th Maine surged forward:
Meantime Captain Morrill with his skirmishers (sent out from my left flank), with some dozen or fifteen of the U.S. Sharpshooters who had put themselves under his direction, fell upon the enemy as they were breaking, and by his demonstrations, as well as his well-directed fire, added much to the effect of the charge.
