"The regiment rushed up on the double quick and the companies deployed as best they could, facing the enemy's line near the Chinn House. Very soon the Confederates advanced in many lines of battle. We at once opened fire on them, checking their advance. But the infantry fire was so very destructive that our men were at a loss how to return it effectively. It was just impossible to get the companies in order to successfully resist the Rebel advance."
