"The rebels rushed down the hill in line of battle, but it wasn't quite so easy rushing across a swamp, waist deep in thick mud, and as they tried it we tried Sharp's rifles at eight rods, firing as fast as we could put in cartridges, the distance being so short that aim was unnecessary."
Cpl. William C. Kent
1st U.S. Sharpshooters (Berdan's)

"The noise of the musketry was not rattling, as ordinarily, but one intense metallic din."
Maj. William S. Tilton
22nd Massachusetts Infantry

"The battle at this juncture raged furiously. The fire was tremendous. The trees were lopped and branches and leaves fell as thick as snowflakes, whilst the balls flew like a hail-storm."
Lt. Co1. Hugh S. Campbell
83rd Pennsylvania Infantry
