71st New York State Militia
Col. Henry P. Martin

"The Alabama 4th, which had long ago expressed, in print, their desire to meet the New York 71st, deployed from a wood. The 71st, recognizing them, answered the challenge with a shout, and, springing forward, delivered a volley of musketry. They then charged down the hill upon them with tremendous vigor, intending to take them with the bayonet. But the Alabamians did not like the war-whoop, nor its prologue, so after a volley and a short pause, they took back to cover, leaving their dead on the field."
