December 13, 1862. About 100 yards to the south Georgia's Gen. T.R.R. Cobb fell mortally within sight of his mother's girlhood home. He died at the roadside dwelling of Mrs. Martha Stevens, who remained all during the battle to aid the Confederate wounded. Though withstanding shot and shell, Mrs. Stevens modest frame house has not survived to the present. Nearby Sgt. Richard Kirkland, a young South Carolinian earned the nickname "Angel of Marye's Heights" by risking his life to carry water to the wounded Federals in front of the wall.
