The Stand in Robinson's Lane
— First Battle of Manassas —Shot-up Confederate regiments stumbled past, in retreat from Matthews Hill. First along Warrenton Pike, then in Robinson's Lane, Col. Wade Hampton's South Carolinians tried to delay the Union advance. Slowly, with volley after volley of musket fire, the Union wave forced Hampton's Legion back past Robinson House toward the pine woods. At this point the Confederate Army seems on the brink of defeat.
