Though himself wounded, gallantly fought his section of the battery under a fierce fire
from the enemy until his ammunition was all expended, many of the cannoneers and most of
the horses killed or wounded, and the enemy within 25 yards of the guns, when, disabling
one piece, he brought off the other in safety.
