"Ulster Guard"

Col. George W. Pratt

"The order was given to advance, and the three lines moved slowly forward, receiving the enemy's musketry and canister. The first and second lines melted away, and I found myself in the first line and under a murderous fire. The right of my line advanced to within a few yards of the railroad embankment behind which the enemy was posted, when, a large portion of officers and men being killed or wounded, the line fell back a few rods, closed up, and advanced again with the same result. For the third time the effort was repeated, but the fire was too heavy and my men had now become too few to give a hope of success."
- Lt. Col. Theodore B. Gates
