Blocher's Arkansas Battery was the focal point of the Union attacks. A sergeant in the battery reported:
"...The enemy advanced upon us with their artillery, under cover of their infantry, until within range of our battery when they opened a most disastrous fire on us from both arms. Hail from Heaven never fell thicker than the shot, shell, and minie balls did for minutes. Having no support, Captain Blocher ordered our men to fall back and save themselves... we discovered our men forming about 200 yards in rear of our battery... Our men then charged and drove them from our guns, with considerable loss to the enemy."
