"Here one of the most terrific engagements that can be conceived of occurred. Our troops held the farmhouse while the enemy held the orchard. To the left our men stood in the open field without shelter of any kind. For two hours and a half, without an instant's cessation of the most deadly discharges of musketry, round shot and shell, both sides stood unmoved, neither advancing and neither yielding until at last, about 9 o'clock the enemy slowly and sullenly fell back."
- Brig. Gen. William B. Taliaferro
