Second Battle of Manassas
— Day Three - August 30, 1862 - 3 p.m. —Full-throated cheers greeted the order to attack. More than 6,000 Union soldiers under General Fitz John Porter poured across the road into the fields of Lucinda Dogan's farm. As the blue-clad lines traversed the open ground, a massive concentration of Confederate artillery, posted on the neighboring Brawner Farm, unleashed a torrent of shot and shell. The bombardment shattered their formations and thinned the ranks. Still, the Federals pressed on and ascended the far ridge.
