  • “McArthur ordered his remaining companies forward along with another regiment in the brigade. Arraying his line smartly, the major shouted above the rising din, “By the left flank, charge.” Just as his company changed direction, “a broadside to the left jaw” knocked down Sergeant Ford. The bullet struck him in the lower angle of the jaw, breaking a bone before tearing down into the collarbone and lodging in his chest. As his company rushed forward, Surgeon Herman Hasse kneeled beside the bleeding Irishman, cut loose the leather straps holding his accoutrements and the string that bound his blanket roll. Spreading out the woolen blanket, he ministered to the wounded sergeant.”
