15th Alabama Infantry
Maj. A. A. Lowther

"My position in line at this fence was in the immediate rear of Alonzo Watson. We were both on our knees, he firing through a crakc, and I firing over the top of the fence. My left elbow was at once time resting on his shoulder when all at once I heard a "thud" and poor 'Lonzo began to relax and sink, exclaiming in a low tone 'Oh Lordy, I am a dead man.' These were his last words. I didn't move, and kept loading and firing until the fight was over."
-Sgt. William A. McLendon
