"As soon as this advancing brigade reached the summit of the hill it was met by a storm of shot and shell I never saw exceeded except in the famous charge of Pickett's men at Gettysburg."
Col. Eppa Hunton
8th Virginia Infantry

"On they went, down the declivity, their ranks being thinned at every step?.Down the hill they went, across the narrow valley."
Letter from a member of Pickett's Brigade to a Richmond newspaper
June 29, 1862

"Nearly exhausted from exertion, I failed to reach the opposite bank of the ravine in attempting to jump it, and found myself in the bottom of a ten-foot ditch, and the boys climbing the hill beyond shouting and shooting like mad."
Lt. William N. Wood
19th Virginia Infantry
