The above action of the 4th Texas I believe is the contact that John B. Hood's men met the 5th and 10th New York, two zouave regiments. Google the 5th New York at 2nd Manassas and their was much slaughter of union troops.

In that excerpt Capt. James T. Hunter was actually describing an action on the evening of the previous day, August 29, 1862. He does go on to mention Longstreet's attack on the next day, although his 4th Texas didn't participate in the destruction of the 5th and 10th New York. That was the 5th Texas, 18th Georgia and Hampton's Legion. The 1st and 4th Texas were on the left of the brigade and passed on, not engaging those regiment, although the 4th did charge and capture an artillery battery.
