1861

The Nashville Union, telling the story of Bull Run from the Southern perspective, writes: “Gen. Beauregard commanded in person. The enemy was repulsed three times in great confusion and loss. The Washington Artillery of New Orleans, with s even guns, engaged Sherman’s fifteen guns, and, after making the latter change position fifteen times, silenced and forced them to retire. Large quantities of arms were taken. Our loss was trifling.” Much credit for the Southern victory is given to rebel sharp-shooters.
