  6. John from NYC. Thank you for this view of the Cross Keys battlefield. Yes, the 8th NY was the lead regiment in this part of the battlefield. The regiment of my great-great-grandfather, the 45th NY, followed behind in support. The 45th was severely disrupted by the men of the 8th who fled the carnage they endured, though the 45th's casualty total was significantly lower. Not a good day for the Federals.
