The thickets and underbrush in this area were so thick I have a hard time believing anyone could see what they were shooting at.  Another irony of the war is that Longstreet and his staff were fired on by his own troops in similar circumstances at the Battle of the Wilderness a year later.  This was in the same area and the same "mess" of underbrush.  In fact, if you stand on the spot where Longstreet was wounded, you can see the monument where Jackson received his fatal wounds.
