  • Sorry, that's incorrect
    Answer:

    Massed artillery.  Breckinridge's assault was made over an open field that was dominated by a Union-held ridge and exposed to cannon fire from two sides.  Nevertheless, the charge achieved a penetration of the Union infantry line before the damage inflicted by a thirty-four gun battery forced the Confederates to retreat.
