Attacks on Jackson's Line

— Second Battle of Manassas, Day Two, August 29, 1862 —

From the woods ahead came the sound of many men approaching. Out of a fog of musket smoke the enemy appeared, charging with fixed bayonets straight at this position.

You are standing behind the Unfinished Railroad, Confederate General Stonewall Jackson's main line of resistance. One the long afternoon of August 29, wave after wave of Federal regiments assaulted this position, their dead and wounded piling up on the forward slope of the embankment. For the Confederates, the worst moment came when Union Brig. Gen. Cuvier Grover's troops broke through the line.
