Captin Ricketts, in his official report, described the fire from Henry house and then the Confederate charge
"We ascended the hill near the Henry house, which was at that time filled with sharpshooters. I had scarcely gotten to the battery before I saw some of my horses fall and some of my men wounded by sharpshooters. I turned my guns on that house and literally riddled it. It has been said that there was a woman killed there by our guns. We did not move from our position. In fact, in a very short time, we were not in a condition to move, on account of the number of horses that were disabled. I know it was the hottest place I ever saw in my life. And I'd seen some fighting before. The enemy had taken advantage of the woods, and the natural slope of the ground, and delivered a terrible fire upon us."
