Second Battle of Manassas

August 29, 1862
5:30 p.m.

1st Brigade (Robinson), First Division (Kearny)
Third Corps (Heintzelman),
Army of the Potomac, USA

63rd Pennsylvania Infantry
Col. Alexander Hays


"As the word "Charge!" rang out, we dashed forward with gleaming bayonets and loud yells on the enemy. It was desperate work. The enemy waited until we got close up and then poured such a withering volley into our line that it seemed to shrivel up and reel back. Rapidly rallying, we made another effort to face the iron storm, but the fire was too murderous and we were again compelled to fall back, leaving behind many of our dead and wounded."
- Gilbert A. Hays, A.D.C.
