— First Battle of Manassas —

July 21, 1861
11:00 a.m.


1st Brigade (Porter), Second Division (Hunter)
Army of Northeastern Virginia, USA

U.S. Infantry Battalion
Maj. George Sykes

"As soon as we were formed, we commenced firing, and the rebels did not like the taste of our long range rifles. Our men fired badly; they were excited, and some of the recruits fired at the stars. There was some confusion, but we formed line of battle and marched across the field in splendid order. We went through some woods, which were full of dead bodies, and formed line again. We were here fired on by two regiments, and many of our men fell."
-Lt. Eugene Carter
