49th Georgia Infantry
Lt. Col. S. M. Manning
“The enemy made a dash at our brigade, about 1500 strong, and broke our lines. It was a hand to hand fight. A part of our regiment was cut off from the rest, and I succeeded in attaching myself to the 14th South Carolina of Gregg’s Brigade, which was on our left. Taking a musket from a dead man I went in as a private and fought with that regiment for an hour and a half.”
- Adjutant Mark Newman
