4th South Carolina Infantry
Col. J.B.E. Sloan

"Just before day on Sunday morning those of us on post nearest the Warrenton Turnpike heard the enemy approaching. We gave the alarm, and in a few minutes the regiment was formed in line of battle on the hill overlooking the Stone Bridge. Just at six o'clock the enemy fired their first gun (a cannon). It went over us, and in a few moments a regular firing was going on."
-Pvt. Jesse W. Reid
