Stories about Benjamin T Brockman

McGowan's South Carolina Brigade Monument Back

    CSA

    "The Bloody Angle"

    In the rainy gloom of May 12, 1864, Brigadier
    General Samuel McGowan's brigade of South
    Carolinians battled their way into the disputed
    earthworks here, near the apex of the Muleshoe
    Salient. For eighteen hours the 1,300 South
    Carolinians defended these works against
    relentless attacks by thousands of Federals,
    sometimes engaging in hand-to-hand fighting.
    By battle's end, 451 men of the brigade were
    killed, wounded, or missing. The slight angle in
    the works they defended would forever be
    known as the Bloody Angle.

    To the brave and heroic men of
    McGowan's Brigade
    this monument is dedicated

    Erected by the State of South Carolina and the
    Brig. Gen. Samuel McGowan Camp 40
    Sons of Confederate Veterans of
    Laurens County, South Carolina, 2009
