"The Federals came up in front of us as suddenly as men rising up out of the ground. Our commander, Colonel Will Baylor, seeing that our line was about to falter, ran and took the flag. Waving it, the gallant Baylor dashed forward ahead of the brigade shouting, 'Boys, follow me!' We did follow him, shouting and firing, only to see the brave man shot down, wrapped in the flag he carried, pierced by many bullets, and dead."
-Capt. Edward Stickley
33rd Virginia
