Near Here Is
account of the fight here was given by Ensign Lister –
as we descended the hill into the road the rebels begun a brisk fire but at so
great a distance it was without effect, but as they kept marching nearer when
the Grenadiers found them within shot they returned their fire just about that
time I rec’d a shot through my right elbow joint which effectively disabled
that arm . . .”
an account by Private Edmond Foster –
soon as the British had gained the main road, and passed a small bridge near
that corner, they faced about suddenly, and fired a volley of musketry upon
us.They overshot:and the fire injured no one to my
knowledge.The fire was immediately
returned by the Americans, and two British soldier fell dead.”
is not clear how many soldiers were killed here.It may have only been one person.
