Army of the Potomac, USA

2nd New Hampshire Infantry
Col. Gilman Marston

"There was a crash of Rebel musketry, an answering roar of Yankee cheers, and almost instantly the 2nd was pouring over the railroad embankment. The first Confederate line was driven in upon a second, and here occurred the most desperate fighting of the day—a hand to hand fight with bayonets and clubbed muskets. The second Rebel line was routed and scattered. A third Rebel line was encountered, but by now our charge had spent its force. The 2nd held on until overwhelmed, then the men made a break to escape capture."
- Pvt. Martin Haynes
