Second Battle of Manassas

August 28, 1862
7:15 p.m.

2nd Brigade (Doubleday), First Division (King)
Third Corps (McDowell), Army of Virginia, USA

76th New York Infantry
("Cortland County Regiment")

Col. W.P. Wainwright

"Waving their colors defiantly, the rebels advanced from the woods to charge upon Gibbon's brigade to our left. Gibbon's men did not run. Those western men are not easily scared. They stood still and fired as fast as they could. We gave the Rebs a crossfire, thinning their ranks and prostrating their color bearer. The Rebels finding they were getting the worst of it turned their backs and pointed for the woods."
-Sgt. Uberton Burnham
