"I was a member of the First Texas Regiment, Hood's Brigade, and about 2 o'clock p.m. on July 3, my regiment was sent off a mile or more from Round Top and stationed in a public road to check the advance of the cavalry..."
This is the Gettysburg reminiscence of one W.T. White, veteran of the First Texas Infantry Regiment, who had documented his experience on Little Round Top in his earlier writings, but preferred to dwell on some other "glorious moments" on this page.
As a result of their charge up Little Round Top, the boys of the Twentieth Maine sent the First Texas Infantry to the bottom of the hill leaving 25 dead, 20 missing and 48 wounded.
