Second Battle of Manassas

August 28, 1862
7:15 p.m.

Lawton's Brigade, Ewell's Division
Left Wing (Jackson)
Army of Northern Virginia, CSA

26th Georgia Infantry
Maj. Eli S. Griffin

"We were ordered in just after dark. We marched steadily across an open field for about 400 yards, over which the balls were flying by the thousands. When we reached a fence the men were ordered to lie down. We poured volley after volley into the enemy. Then General Lawton ordered the brigade to change. The Yankees did fearful execution; men fell from the ranks by dozens. Still the gallant 26th wavered not. One volley sent the enemy flying over the hill to the woods."
- Capt. James S. Blain
