"I cannot think of this bloody hill without
sadness and pride. Sadness for the great loss of
my true and gallant men; pride for the heroic
bravery they displayed. No prouder division
ever met as vastly superior foe and fought with
more unflinching firmness and stubborn valor.
It was, after the conflict, literally the hill of
deaths men, horses, cannon, and the debris of
an army lay scattered in wild confusion.
Hundreds of the gallant Twelfth Division were
cold in death or writhing in pain, and, with
large numbers of Quinby's gallant boys lay
dead, dying, or wounded, intermixed with our
fallen foe. Thus ended the battle of Champion's
Hill at about 3 p.m., and our heroes slept upon
the field with the dead and dying around them."

Brig. Gen. Alvin P. Hovey, U.S. Vols
Commander, 12th Division, XIII Corps
Army of the Tennessee
