Fawcett observes the unfolding engagement from the vantage point of the trees, where he munches on a piece of cornbread and fresh-cooked ham. He could see the Federal artillery forming to the north under fire from Gardner's own battery, but the New York seemed strangely reluctant to try the North Carolina position south of the ford. His lips twitched in a wry smile at the thought and he turned to his lieutenant; "Get the men ready to move out in forty minutes, Michaels." He looks back to the bombardment. "I'd say we have at least that long."

Colonel Sennef, how many Federals do you think Phase Three can handle on our side of the river? If they get a battalion or more of foot, I suggest we break up their line for the Blazing Saddles and the Tar Heels to exploit.

Bird will continue to develop his position, with half his men crouched in waist-high cover (first line) alternating volleys with the other half a few paces behind them once the enemy approaches their position. The skirmish screen remains out in advance and can take aimed shots at anyone entering the ford but should fall back to the main line once they begin to return fire.
