That was pretty much the Battle of Oak Hill at Gettysburg, largely unknown but bloody bloody engagement.

July 1st. 1863

  Iverson's Men (The 23rd, 20th, 12th  and the 5th N.C.T.) were marching toward the Federals on the first day of a three day battle in a town called Gettysburg. The Federals under Gen. Abner Doubleday were well hidden from sight behind a stone wall.

Iverson's Brigade moving in a southeastern direction left their flank open. The 5th N.C. was closest to the Federals followed by the 20th, 23rd and the 12th. The were not aware of the Federals behind the wall. The Confederates were in perfect marching order when the Federals cut loose with their first volley. This killed and wounded most of the Brigade. With the fire so fierce the Confederates had to fall back, picking up the wounded along the way.

  Union Brigadier Gen. Baxter ordered his men to fix bayonets and charge the Confederates. They followed orders and went after the Confederates. The Federals were trying to get the Confederate colors. The color-bearer for the 23rd was in hand to hand combat with a captain of the 88th Pa. The 23rd color-bearer was trying to keep the colors out of enemy hands when a Sgt. from the 88thPa. clubbed him in the head with his musket. The Sgt. grabbed the 23rds colors and took them to the rear. The Confederates badly out numbered was unable to keep up with the fight and had to retreat. Many had to surrender.

 The 23rd lost 84% of their men and officers in this first days battle. The were put on guard detail for the rest of the battle.


Iverson failed to perform even a rudimentary reconnaissance and sent his men forward blindly while he stayed in the rear (as had O'Neal, minutes earlier). More of Baxter's men were concealed in woods behind a stone wall and rose to fire withering volleys from less than 100 yards away, creating over 800 casualties among the 1,350 North Carolinians. Stories are told about groups of dead bodies lying in almost parade-ground formations, heels of their boots perfectly aligned. (The bodies were later buried on the scene, and this area is today known as "Iverson's Pits", source of many local tales of supernatural phenomena.)
