"It was a most mad enterprise, but it was ordered...It was the hottest musketry fire I was ever in. Our regiment melted under it. And we fell back sullenly-we were too exhausted and too proud to run!" Elliott Grabill, 5th United States Colored Troops

"Those fellows fought well, sir. They came up at a double quick, with their guns at a right shoulder shift, and leaped into the ditch. Then they began to assist one another up the parapet and...many of them were shot down upon the edge." Unidentified Confederate artillerist in Richmond Whig
