Longstreet summoned every peice of artillery in sight to take up position in the Piper Farm apple orchard. Federal fire soon played with deadly results among the Southern gunners as the onrushing men in blue tried to force the Confederates to give way, Finally some guns of the famed Washington Artillery began to fall silent as their cannoneers dropped wounded or dead. Quickly the members of the Longstreet's staff dismounted and began working the pieces themselves, leaving their commander to remain in his saddle, smoking a cigar and hold the reins of their horses. The officers did their best as all the guns were worked "desperately, almost despairingly" to stop the blue wave from crushing their line. "Our fire was really strong and effective," remembered one of Longstreet's men with satisfaction. At last "some reliefs from the Washington Artillery came up...and with hearty shouts took their guns in hand." The frenzied defense had worked. The Union attackers had been torn up and called off the assult.
