"At Spottsylvania, May 12, a memorable day, Ramseur's brigade advanced, driving the blue-clad soldiers from a first line of breastworks and then rushing to a second, stronger line. When the 14th regiment, on the left, reached the near side of the works, the situation of its fellow-regiment, the 30th North Carolina, on the right, became grave. Going to the rescue the 14th drove into traverses and ousted the Federals at the point of the bayonet." [Transcribed from the Asheville Citizen-Times, Sunday, December 24, 1961.]
