— First Battle of Manassas —

July 21, 1861
11:00 a.m.


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

2nd Rhode Island Infantry
Col. John S. Slocum

"The 2nd was hotly engaged and made so gallant a fight as to push the enemy off the plateau and partly down the hillside. In the cornfield on the slope, and among the woods beyond, they found temporary shelter. But the fire of the 2nd was hot and deadly, and although fresh enemy troops were constantly coming up, our men obstinately held the crest. For nearly an hour did the regiment fight on, singlehandedly."
-Pvt. Augustus Woodbury
