Col. Elisha G. Marshall
"The Rebel infantry poured in their volleys, and we were scarcely a dozen feet from their muzzles of their muskets. Oh, it was terrible! For twenty minutes the shattered regiments held the slope swept by a hurricane of death, and each minute the bullets hummed like swarming bees, and then those yet alive and able to do so received orders to fall back. We who fell - the dead, dying, and the disabled - held the field."
- Cpl. John S. Slater
