HI all,

I was thumbing through my older version of the American Heritage Atlast of the Civil War.

According to Bruce Catton. "Warren rushed two brigades to the fight (for LRT), where according to one 20th Maine Veteran the two lines were so close at times that there rifles could almost touch!".  The gallant New Englanders under "Warren" out of ammunition and exhausted fixed bayonets and charged causing the enemy to surrender. This charge along with the GALLANT charge of the 140th New York save little round top for if it had fallen the confederates would have been able to enfliade the union line making it untenable. But only for a pause.

Now folks I realize we all know the full story.. But as they like to say "Brcue Catton said it so it must be true!"....

Jimtno :D
