Second Battle of Manassas

August 30, 1862
3:15 p.m.

1st Brigade (Roberts), First Division (Morell)
Fifth Corps (Porter), Army of the Potomac, USA

13th New York Infantry
("Rochester Regiment")
Col. Elisha G. Marshall

"The Rebel infantry poured in their volleys, and we were scarcely a dozen feet from their muzzles of their muskets. Oh, it was terrible! For twenty minutes the shattered regiments held the slope swept by a hurricane of death, and each minute the bullets hummed like swarming bees, and then those yet alive and able to do so received orders to fall back. We who fell - the dead, dying, and the disabled - held the field."
- Cpl. John S. Slater
