"The Federal line advanced in perfect order, as if on dress parade, instead of as if marching on to death. The line was permitted to advance until we could read the expressions on every man's face. The fatal word "Fire!" was given by Colonel Nolan. When the smoke arose, the line of Federals was almost swept away, with the exception of a gallant band who advanced and secured protection on the opposite side of the embankment."
- Lt. E.D. Willett
1st Louisiana Infantry
