1862, 7-12 - CJ - Wounded at Cold Harbor
1862- July 12 Casualties IN THE BATTLE OF COLD HARBOR
20th N.C. Regiments reported in several newspapers across N.C.
The 20th N.C. Regiments went into the fight at Cold Harbor with 859 guns and charged alone and unsupported upon the battery on the extreme right of the enemy's lines, supported by the 12th and the 14th U.S. Regulars and a regiment of Volunteers. The infantry was driven in and the battery carried. The Colonel was shot down before reaching it. Lieutenant Col. was killed sitting on one of the guns. At this moment either the enemy or some bastard gave the order to retreat, which the Lieut. Col. hearing, repeated, and the regiment fell back, losing heavily in their retreat to the woods. Both officers and men agree that they could have held the battery but for the order to retreat. The distance charged over was 400 yards, across the open field uphill- When other troops afterward charged and carried the battery the regiment joined them.
Since the fight the regiment has been engaged again in the battle on Tuesday evening, suffering severe losses, but they are not yet reported
