Shortly before his soldiers in the Sunken Road came under attack, Colonel John Brown Gordon of the 6th Alabama Infantry promised General Lee that his men would hold their position "till the sun goes down or victory is won." For more than three hours Confederate soldiers in the Sunken Road held back repeated attacks launched by the Union 2nd Corps before finally being driven from their position. They paid a heavy price for their gallant and desperate defense, losing more than 2,000 men killed, wounded, captured, and missing. Gordon, who survived five wounds in the Sunken Road, later became a major general, fighting all the way to the end of the war at Appomattox Court House. After the battle, the Sunken Road would forever be known as the Bloody Lane.
