The Pioneer Brigade
— Stones River National Battlefield —On came the sounds of battle...struggling blue-coats...falling back came into view through the trees. They were loading and firing as the retired...they passed over our...line and laid down behind it. The order ?Battalion, rise up!' came like an electric shock. The brigade was by some mischance short of ammunition; some companies had not more than 20 rounds...The Confederates were near at hand. Suddenly their line seemed to burst through the thicket just in front. ?Commence firing!' and our volleys were fired into them. Men were dropping here and there, and others filled the vacant places.
