p. 65, A lull in the battle followed the repulse of the enemy. Although the battery was exposed to a hot fire of shot and shell, but one of its number was struck Private Charles A. Cuffel, who was serving the third gun at the lanyard. A Belgium musket ball, that had first struck the ground in front of him, glanced and hit him on the breast.
