Southern Historical Society Papers, Volume 13. (ed. Reverend J. William Jones), Gregg's brigade of South Carolinians in the Second. Battle of Manassas. (search)
ough to hold the brigade, we stood and fought, with intervals of cessation, from eight o'clock in the morning until dark. General Hill reports the three days fighting: Reports A. N. V., vol. II, p. 124; Rebellion Records, vol. XII, part 2, p. 669. My loss was one hundred and ninety-nine killed and thirteen hundred and eight wounded; total, fifteen hundred and seven, of which Gregg's brigade lost six hundred and nineteen. The brave Colonels, Marshall, of South Carolina, and Forbes, of Tennessee, were killed. Lieutenant-Colonel Leadbetter, of South Carolina, also met a soldier's death. Colonels Barnes, Edwards, McGowan, Lieutenant-Colonels McCorkle, Farrow and McCrady, and Major Brockman, of Gregg's brigade, were wounded. The stubborn tenacity with which Gregg's brigade held its position this day is worthy of highest commendation. General Jackson reports: Reports Army of Northern Virginia, volume II, page 95; Rebellion Records, volume XII, part 2, page 641.
