19th Indiana Infantry
Col. Solomon Meredith

"The enemy was secreted under cover of a fence and did not make their appearance until we had approached to within 75 yards. Immediately upon our halting the enemy fired. Three different times they came up at a charge, but the 19th stood firm. They fell back to their fence each time."
-Col. Solomon Meredith
