Interesting reading!

Lang and Wilcox charged AFTER the assault was basically over....their repulse did NOT allow the Vermonter's to get on the flank of Kemper (the Vermonters had already flanked them near the Codori Farm orchard...then Lang/Wilcox advanced well south of them/the Codori Farm....and then the Vermonter's flanked them in the swale and swooped up a ton of Floridian's).

The uniform color chosen was NOT Confederate Gray...West Point cadets and State's Militias had worn gray for decades.....
