The Eighth Kentucky

Dismounted Calvary




“For a mile up and down the open fields

before us the splendid lines of the veterans

of the army of Northern Virginia swept down

on us. Their bearing was magnificent.  

They came forward with a rush, and how

our men did yell, “Come on Johnny, come on!”


Lt Col. Rufus R. Dawes, 6th Wisconsin,

The Iron Brigade, July 1st, 1863
