The fury of Wilderness…the thunders of Gettysburg

Near the Adams Farm, Richmond National Battlefield. When the Union Second Corps attacked near this position on the morning of June 3, 1864, a member of the 10 Massachusetts Light said, “It had the fury of the Wilderness musketry, with the thunders of the Gettysburg artillery superadded. It was simply terrific.”
