Johnny Green stated,

"One yankee who stood his ground firing from behind one of their tents had drawn a bead on Captain Price Newman who was in hot pursuit at the head of his company.  I fired at Mr. Yank as I advanced, but missed him; he fired at Capt Newman not fifteen feet distant, who fell headlong."

It appears, as fate would have it, the captain had caught his foot on a tent rope and stumbled right as the Federal soldier fired.  Newman stood up and shot the Federal with his pistol.
