In truth the northern troops seemed to be in overwhelming numbers on the battle field, while confederate troops took the field in smaller contingents.
It was confusing to watch and try to decide which side had the upper hand.
The calvary took the field while canons fired on both sides.
The dead and wounded were left laying in the field.
This old confederate soldier watched two of his fellow soldiers fall in the fighting.
He took up the charge by himself, which proved to be a futile attempt in the heat of the moment.
In the end it appeared that the north had taken the day. But at the end of the battle the dead and wounded arose, and both sides participated in a salute to past and present soldiers who have fought and died for our country. If only all wars could end this way.
