"We advanced within 30 yards of the enemy, who held a railroad cutting some 15 feet deep with precipitous sides. The men began their work in deadly earnest. After nearly three quarters of an hour firing, our cartridges were nearly exhausted. We resorted to cold steel to drive the enemy out. We sprang forward with a yell, plunged into the cutting, and drove the enemy through the woods."
- Adjutant Theodore A. Dodge
