Colonel Hapgood noted the flash of the gun and called Sergeant Phelps’ attention to it. Phelps soon sighted the Confederate soldier and shot him. Shortly afterwards, Sergeant Phelps was shot in the back and died in a military hospital on July 4, 1863. On July 22, his remains were returned to Amherst. The next day, the Lawrence Engine Company attended the funeral in full uniform. On Sergeant Phelps’ stone are the words "A Young Man, but an Old Soldier."
