"Beyond the road was a plowed field, now trampled into mud, the winter stubble crushed into it by hoofs of straining horses and heavy wheels of cannon and the slogging feet of hundreds of men."
- Lt. Abner Small, 16th Maine Infantry, USA

"We were posted on a chain of hills.... I could see fully half the whole Yankee army, reserves and all. It was a grand sight seeing them come in position this morning."
- "Ben," Pee Dee (South Carolina) Artillery, CSA
