Yes. It was either Rifleman Benjamin Harris or William Green who was part of the guard at the Bridge at Coa. Attacked at night, the rifleman had no time to withdraw his ramrod. Instead he fired it into the bayonet armed Frenchman, killing him. The rifleman then discarded his rifle as useless and ran. Luckily, he found the sergeant who was wounded and taking his rifle, returned to the fight.
