January 2, 1863

Confederate infantry started to wade the river. Could they be stopped? Captain John Mendenhall massed 57 guns here. Shot, shell and canister rained on the attackers, costing them almost 16 casualties a minute. The Confederates could not stand the fierce pounding. Union infantry pursued them across the river. The guns were still then, but they had won the day for the Union.
