Garrott's 20th Alabama Regiment suffered great casualties here from the fire of Federal sharpshooters. Garrott, exasperated at the damage being inflicted on his men, picked up a rifle-musket to return the fire. He was shot though the heart and died without learning that he had been promoted to brigadier general
