— First Battle of Manassas —

July 21, 1861
11:00 a.m.

2nd Brigade (Burnside, Second Division (Hunter)
Army of Northeastern Virginia, USA

Rhode Island Battery
Capt. William H. Reynolds

Six 13-Pounder James Rifled Guns

"'Forward into line of action, front,' came Captain Reynolds' order. I dismounted and ran to my gun, and found that within 20 yards of us were the Rebels, advancing. I thought for a moment our battery was lost, but the 2d Rhode Island Regiment made a fearful charge and gave a most hideous scream, and never will I forget how the Rebel flag looked as it bobbed out of sight under the hill."
-An unknown Union Sergeant
