misguided southern troops, who really had no idea where they were or where they were headed, their general not even there nor leading them at the
time, came out of the underbrush and woods they'd been moving through ... only to be met by a myriad of union troops who rose from behind a stone wall
at about 80 yards distance ..
the rest is history ...
500+ killed in mere minutes ... portions thereof in seconds, even, with each volley of lead ... hundreds more captured and held ... an absolute
A literal wall of soldiers laid out and down as if they were placed in front of a firing squad ... rolled over into a shallow trench grave hundreds of
feet long only hours later ...
General Alfred Iverson apparently arrived after the fact and even went so far as to castigate his troops for their cowardice and the like .. for
'laying low' ... for not attacking the enemy ... not realizing they were already dead.
