The two Union views presented here parallel Colonel McRae's official report as they mention the 5th North Carolina State Troops whom they were engaged with during this action. It was also in this action that the 5th NCST's original battleflag was captured. You will find an account of this and the flag's eventual return to North Carolina in the "History" section on this website.
