My outfit was the Red River Battalion which bivouaced Saturday night at the lunette as the 2nd Texas Infantry, worked with pioneering tools to improve the works on Sunday morning and defended its center during Sunday's battle. For those who were there as other Rebs, Yanks, or spectators, how was the attack on the lunette?
Personally, I was hot, dirty, and lovin' every minute of it, especially watching and firing from an awkward leaning, kneeling position at the Yanks carrying rough cut timber ladders to use to cross the ditch and climb the wall of dirt.
But I will say, someone blew Taps on a bugle while there seemed to us to be plenty of fight left in both sides. None of us quite understood the early stoppage after so much effort went into construction of the lunette and the scenario.
