Summary

Description
English: Confederate dead lay gathered at the bottom of the parapet of Battery Robinett on the day after the Battle of Corinth. Col. William P. Rogers of the 2nd Texas (on the very left) seized his colors to keep them from falling again and jumped a five foot ditch, leaving his dying horse and assaulted the ramparts of the battery. When canister shot killed him, he was the fifth color bearer to fall that day. Note: This text erroneously reports that his second-in-command, Col. Lawrence Ross lays beside him. In fact, Ross went on to become a general and later the governor of Texas. He died in 1898.
