The battle scene near Elkhorn Tavern about 4:00 pm that fateful day of March 7th, 1862. The Union 1st and 3rd Artillery have their six-pound cannon firing on the 1st Missouri Brigade that was led by Colonel Henry Little.
I charged the battlements of Vicksburg, climbed the proud crest of Lookout Mountain and assisted in driving the Confederates from their almost impregnable position on Missionary Ridge, but in all my army experience I did not see any fighting compared with the plain open field conflict that occurred in and around the Elkhorn Tavern on March 7, 1862.
Sgt. Jacob Platt, 9th Regiment, Iowa Volunteer Infantry
