An interesting incident occured furing the battle that day involving Private Joseph H. Cash of Company !. 'The Yandees..charged at the South Ann Bridge and a hand-to-hand fight ensured around a little cabin, on the porch of which Colonel Tazewell L. Hargrove of the 44th regiment N.C. Troops was standing, fighting with serveral Yankees at one time. One gigantic trooper, with drawn sword, was rushing on him when Joe Cash, a mere boy sixteen years old, pierred him with his bayonet, and as he fell another trooper shot Joe, and he fell across the man he had just killed. Before he fell a Yankee called on him to surrender, and though he saw they were overwhelmed by number, the replied, 'Ill never do it, till my colonel tells me,' and he fought on until he was killed.'
