Union Cannon Devastate the Confederates
— Malvern Hill Battlefield - Richmond National Battlefield Park —Confederate attacks reached their final fury just before sunset. "The men would rush forward as they were urged," recalled a North Carolinian, "and then it seemed as though the whole line would sway back as a field of corn would before a wind." When especially bold units neared the line of Union cannon, Federal infantry rushed out in front of the artillery to repel the threat. No Confederates reached the guns.
