hich I did, passing over a fence, across a field, and through the woods, the rebels falling back before us. We still advanced through an open field.
Here we advanced in line of battle, when a brigade of troops, dressed in our uniforms, and supposed to be our own, opened a terrific fire on our front and left flank, from which fire I lost my bravest and best men.
