Most of the men in grey (Southerners) retreat, "These grew to a crowd, who retired stubbornly. Individuals wheeled frequently to send a bullet at the blue wave." Eventually there were only a small group of Southerners who held their ground largely because they could not hear the retreat. These men were either killed or taken prisoner.
