"We neared the Chinn House, when suddenly a long line of the enemy rose from behind an old fence and poured straight into our breasts a withering volley. It struck the long line like an electric shock, but the officers surged ahead cheering on the men. It was a decisive fight of about 10 minutes. The left of our brigade struck the enemy's right and doubled it up. In a moment the blue line quivered and went to pieces."
