Second Battle of Manassas

August 28, 1862
7:00 p.m.

4th Brigade (Gibbon), First Division (King)
Third Corps (McDowell), Army of Virginia, USA

6th Wisconsin Infantry
Col. Lysander Cutler

"When at short range, Colonel Cutler ordered the regiment to halt and fire. We were on low ground which, in the gathering darkness, gave us a great advantage over the enemy, as they overshot our line. Our fire did great execution. It seemed to throw the rebels into complete confusion, and they fell back into the woods behind them. We now gave a loud and jubilant cheer throughout the whole line of the brigade."
- Maj. Rufus Dawes
