Safer GroundAmong the Union troops facing the closing grip of Confederate forces were the experienced veterans of the 5th New York Infantry and the novice soldiers of the 146th New York Infantry. The Confederates, however, did not discriminate between "green" and veteran troops. Both regiments, across the turnpike in front of you and across the run to your left, had real trouble escaping. Some fought their way out, while others were captured en masse.
