"Above us, on a gentle rise, was a battery - the guns hidden from view by a dense curtain of smoke. Nothing could be seen but the flash of the guns. 'Form into line men! Forward! Charge that battery!' The veil of smoke slowly lifted, and we could see the muzzles of the guns. Then came a horrid roar and dull shock that seemed to shake the very earth, and then the dull thud of the balls as they tore through the bodies of our men. I looked around me. The ground was covered with the mangled dead and dying."
-Pvt. Alexander Hunter
17th Virginia Infantry
