“The Confederate batteries shelling the Federal position on the night of the Battle of Cedar Mountain, August 9th, 1862- wounded men lying on the ground, McDowell’s division marching on the field. The scene at night was very striking. It was past ten o’clock, and there was a bright moonlight and a clear blue sky. The Federal troops were on a rising ground, while the enemy’s batteries were shelling from the woods, the Federal batteries replying, and one by one driving them further back. The hospital was near the Federal position, and wounded men wre lying on the ground, waiting their turn to receive surgical attention. Near them were groups of stragglers, ambulances, ammunition wagons, etc.” — Frank Leslie, 1896
