Lieutenant Colonel John C. Black, 37th Illinois Infantry, ordered the retreat of his regiment and the 26th Indiana to a fence at the foot of the ridge. There, the men faced a Confederate counterattack. Captain William P. Black, brother of Lieutenant Colonel Black, wrote his mother about what happened next:
"...we had the rebels now just where we had always wanted them, on level clear ground, and we felt now was an hour of vengeance. The regiment rose as one, and poured in a volley...which stopped the rebel pursuit...Our [Colt] revolving rifles kept playing and one and another fell, and one and another fled into the woods whence they came."
