THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 



OF TIIK 



STATE HISTORIAN. 



To the Hon. James M. E. OTfiiADY, Speaker of the Assembli/, 
State of Neic Yo7'k: 

Sir: — In accordance with custom, I herewith have the honor 
to submit to the Honorable the Legislature the Third Annual 
Report of the State Historian. 

During the year just closed the Department has had every 
reason to congratulate itself upon the gratifying results achieved. 
Progress has been made in the transcription of the Colonial 
records deposited in the State Library. 

The work of copying, for publication, the Colonial muster-rolls 
has been finished. The last report of the State Historian con- 
tained the muster-rolls from 1664 to 1760. In this report will be 
found the remaining rolls from 1760 to the outbreak of the 




4 Annual Report op the 

Revolutionary War iDcluding a batch between 1686 to 1760, that 
does not appear in the second annual report. For the interest- 
ing decade prior to 1775, the number of muster-rolls is surpris- 
ingly and disappointingly small. Perhaps the uncertainty of the 
times deterred patriots from allying themselves with the military 
forces of his Gracious Majesty George the Third. A more rea- 
sonable explanation for the falling off in the number of the rolls 
is that Governor Tryon shipped many of them to England, with 
the documents and records that he conveyed aboard the Asia, 
British man-of-war, in May, 1775. Nearly all the muster-rolls 
that have been transcribed are descriptive in character, and are, 
therefore, more interesting to the descendants of those whose 
names appear on them. 

PUBLIC PAPERS OF GOVERNOR DANIEL D. 

TOMPKINS. 

One of the most valuable collections of manuscripts in the 
State Library was purchased by act of Legislature, in 1885, from 
the descendants of Daniel D. Tompkins, who was Governor of 
New York from 1807 to 1817. The collection consists of fifteen 
manuscript volumes, and includes the Governor's judicial, state 
and military papers. A vast amount of unwritten history lies 
within these tomes. As Governor of the State during the second 
war with Great Britain, and as Military Governor of the Third 
United States Military District, Governor Tompkins' facilities for 
obtaining the best information were without a parallel during 
those troublous times. He saw much and wrote considerably. 
His military papers are practically a history of the War of 1812, 
from the standpoint of New York. Inasmuch as written histories, 
erally, have treated New York State with indifference, or 



State Historian. 5 

ignored her existence entirely, the greater part of tKe information 
contained in the volume of military papers, which is now in press, 
will be a revelation. A brief sketch of the causes that led to the 
war and of the war itself ^ omitting the sea operations, accompanies 
this volume. 

THE COMPILATION OF THE RECORDS OF THE CAV- 
ALRY, ARTILLERY AND ENGINEER REGIMENTS, 
DURING THE WAR OF THE REBELLION. 

The records of the cavalry, artillery and engineer r<»giments 
that went to the front from this State during the War of the 
Rebellion have been compiled and only require editing and com- 
parison with the originals before being transmitted to the printer. 

While the State Historian takes this opportunity to express 
his thanks to all survivors of the war who have complied with 
requests from the office for information, which, from their per- 
sonal experience, they could supply with authority, he deprecates 
the disinclination of many officers who were in command of regi- 
ments or detachments of regiments, especially of the cavalry, to 
bestow a little attention, thought and time upon straightening 
out, clearing up or perfecting a record in honor of the commands 
with which they were connected. The excuses offered by this 
latter class of officers were brief and various. An ex-colonol of 
cavalry simply wrote on the back of the letter that was sent him, 
'* too busy." Another one declared he " hadn't time." The more 
common way of evading questions was to refer to some publica- 
tion, which had been, of course, consulted before the inquiry was 
sent to the officer. 

But, on the whole, there is cause for sincere congratulation in 
the generous co-operation extended to the Department by many 



6 Annual 'Report op the 

surviving old soldiers, as the appendices indicate. Special eflforts 
were made to perfect the records of the cavalry regiments as far 
as possible, for the reason that the histories of some of these 
organizations will be printed this coming year. It is regretable 
that the records of the cavalry regiments were not kept in better 
condition. The most important operations during what are now 
known as historical campaigns are found to-day scarcely men- 
tioned in general reports. It was seldom, indeed, that the com- 
mandant of a cavalry regiment or of a cavalry detachment made 
a full report of the operations of his command. Consequently, 
the heroic work performed by this particular arm of the service 
is neither appreciated or understood. Men who were in the 
saddle for days, encountering all sorts of privations and meeting 
with all sorts of vicissitudes, whose entire life was one of ex- 
posure, and who never encamped in the same spot for two suc- 
cessive nights, had but little inclination and disposition — atid 
often very few facilities — to write reports. 

However, with the generous co-operation of a number of the 
surviving officers of the volunteer cavalry regiments of this 
State, this Department has been fortunate in receiving a consider- 
able amount of data, much of it of an exceedingly valuable char- 
acter, relating to New York cavalry organizations. A great deal 
of the data thus obtained cannot be duplicated elsewhere. It has 
been dug out of diaries that were preserved through all the uncer- 
tainties of an active military life, and from letters written on the 



State Historian. 7 

has come in official contact, by the uniform courtesy and cordial 
disposition to lend assistance at all times for the successful prose- 
cution of the work in hand. To the officers in the State Library, 
the Adjutant-General's office, the State Comptroller's and Secre- 
tary of State's offices, the warmest thanks of the Department are 
due, for the many favors advanced. 

All of which is respectfully submitted.

le outbreak of the Rebellion, when President Lincoln made 

eal for troops, the New York State Militia Regiments were 

, Thursday, April 18, 1861, to the front. The following 

/ the Thirteenth Regiment, six hundred strong, proceeded

mt of Company 0. For several weeks the regiment, 

v'as coininaiKhMl by Abel Smith, remained at Annapolis,

ird maintained constant correspondence with his family. 

18th of May he wrote home, the following memorandum

16 Annual Rsport op thb 

Inasnmch as no official report was ever made of this engage- 
ment, which was distinguished for the first interchange of hostile 
infantry shots between the North and South, the subjoined 
letter from General Woodward will be found interesting: 

" Dear Father : 

I have this moment (11 a. m.) returned from the expedition 
upon which I was despatched on the 16th instant. 

The mission upon which we were sent was to recapture a light- 
ship which was taken by the Secessionists from Smith's Point 
and stowed snugly away in a small creek about the width of 
Byron river, named Mill creek, which empties into the Great 
Wycomico river, a tributary of this great bay. We arrived at 
the river at 5 a. m. yesterday, found out, by scaring a darky 
until his wool was white, where our prize lay, went there, saw 
her, got alongside of her^ hitched on, and brought her here. The 
banks of the creek were high, looking as if washed away by the 
river, with underbrush to the very edges. From this the Lan- 
caster Grays, who had charge of the ship, gave us a pretty warm 
fire. After patiently waiting a minute or two I gave the men 
orders to return it, which they did most gallantly. We cannot 
say whether we wounded or killed any, but I can say that not 
one of my men was touched, even in his clothes. This is miracu- 
lous, as we were exposed on the upper deck of one of the canal 
propellers without a particle of protection, unless the smoke-pipe 
may be considered one. Not a man fiinched, and, with one excep- 
tion, they watched my eye and did not fire or move a muscle until 
ordered. In the instant of firing, by order of Captain Flusser, 
U. S. Navy* (who commanded the expedition), I had the American 
flag raised. The three men designated for that duty laid down 
their pieces and hoisted the banner beautifully. We gave it three 
cheers and went at it again. Our boys are much pleased with 
their trip. Several articles will be put in print about this, the 
first firing in Virginia. I have no doubt they will draw it pretty

coincidence the propeller upon which we were is named the 
William Woodward. I enclose a list of the men who were with 
me. I have written in a hurry and of course in some little excite-

ink used I found on board the prize, and have written you the first 
acconnt of our success from that bottle.

P. S. — I forgot to mention that returning we overhauled a 
schooner, which turned out all right, and we were in turn over- 
hauled by a government vessel which cruises off the Potomac. 
The latter incident made much excitement, as we feared, on her 
approach, that she might be a Secessionist vessel ordered to re- 
capture our prize."

Appendix *'B/' 



A BRILLIANT CAPTURE. 

How Four Companies of the Thirty-third New York Infantry 

Corralled the Seventh and Eighth Georgia Regiments. 

AT THE Battle of Golding's Farm, Va. 

In his report of the battle of Golding's Farm, V a., which oc- 
<nnTed June 28, 1862, General J. W. Davidson, commanding Third 
Brigade, Second Division, Sixth Army Corps, stated that the Sev- 
enth and Eighth Georgia Regiments "were handsomely repulsed" 
by the Thirty-third New York Infantry, Colonel Taylor command- 
ing, in conjunction with the Forty-ninth Pennsylvania. The facts 
in the case do not substantiate the report of the commanding 
general, as will be seen by the subjoined correspondence. As a 
matter of fact, the credit for this work belongs exclusively to the 
Thirty-third New York, who not only " repulsed " but captured 
the Seventh Georgia with its commanding officer, Lieutenant- 
-Colonel John R. Towers, and the Eighth Georgia with its colonel, 
L. M. Lamar. 

The episode reflects the greatest credit upon the Thirty-thii*d 
and is well worth exploiting. Three surviving officers of the 
regiment have furnished this office with statements concerning 
this affair; General George Murray Guion, who was then the 
senior captain of the regiment and subseauently colonel of the 
One Hundred and Forty-eighth New York, and who is now living 
in Chicago; Bernard Byrae, of Seneca Falls, who was a lieutenant 



24 Annual Rbport op the 

in Company K, and Major Pryce W. Bailey, also of Seneca Falls. 
It will be noted that while the officers agree in the main, there 
are several discrepancies in the matter of detail: 

July 2Sih, 1897. 

Dear Sir. — Your favor of the 23d asking for information in 
regard to reported action of Lieutenant E. J. Tyler, Company 
" A," Twenty-third New York, at the battle of Golding's Farm, 
on the 28th June, 1862, is at hand. 

Lieut. Bliss in his account of that action has exaggerated the 
part taken by Lieutenant Tyler — not but what he would have 
made the attempt to " cajpture the Eighth Georgia " had oppor- 
tunity offered, for he was a brave, dashing and capable officer — 
but the circumstances were as follows: 

The battle of Mechanicsville was fought on Friday, June 27th. 
On the morning of the 28th the Thirty-third, with the exception of 
the convalescents and camp guards who were left to strike tents 
and secure baggage preparatory to the general retrograde move- 
ment, was ordered on picket with two companies of the Forty- 
ninth Pennsylvania, at Golding's Farm. 

This force had hardly reached the picket line before the Con- 
federates opened a heavy artillery fire, which was mainly concen- 
trated upon the camp. The camp guard, and all others left in 
camp under command of Lieutenant Tyler, who was at that tune 
acting Adjutant, were immediately rallied by him under the 
galling fire of the guns and promptly moved forward to the line 
of breastw"orks previously erected by the Thirty-third in the im- 
mediate front of its camp. For his promptness and coolness 
under severe fire in accomplishing this movement. Lieutenant 
Tyler was especially commended by Colonel Taylor in his report 
of the engagement. The fire from the batteries continued about 
an hour and then suddenly ceased. The Thirty-third and the two 
companies of the Forty-ninth were now fiercely attacked by two 
full regiments of infantry. The men stood their ground at 
first, but were eventually forced back to the breastwork, 
where a most gallant stand was made. The Confederates- 



State Historian. 23 

flushed with their first success and confident of capturing 
the line of works now charged furiously and with great deter- 
mination, but were repulsed and driven back with heav}' loss. 
Again reforming, the enemy charged a second time but were met 
bj a heavy fire and compelled to retreat in great disorder. Once 
more with persistent braverj' the Confederate lines reformed, and 
gallantly led by Colonel Lamar, who commanded the attacking 
force, made a final charge upon the breastwork and were for the 
third time forced back and driven from the field just as a section 
of Mott's battery* came up and got an enfilading fire on the re- 
treating force. Our loss was somewhat severe during the early 
part of the engagement, and included a number of prisoners. 

Among the latter was Captain Hamilton, of Company ** G," who 
was afterwards exchanged. Lieutenant Church, of Company 
" E," was among the killed. He was a brave and efficient officer, 
and was buried near the spot where he fell. 

The two regiments making the attack were the Seventh and 
Eighth Georgia, and their losses were 90 killed and left upon the 
fleld, a large number wounded, 50 prisoners, including the 
wounded Colonel Lamar, of the Eighth, and Lieutenant-Colonel 
John R. Towers, of the Seventh Georgia, and 200 stiind of arms. 

During the cannonading, immediately after the repulse of the 
first charge, a live shell fell in the ranks of Com-pany " A," behind 
the breafitwork. Private J. W. Hendricks of that company im- 
mediately seized the shell and threw it over the parapet, where it 
buret. 

General Davidson, commanding the brigade, in his rejwrt of the 
battle, says: "The Thirty-third New York Volunteers, Colonel 
Taylor, of my brigade, then on picket, in conjunction with two 
companies of the Forty-ninth Pennsylvania, Colonel Irwin, had 
the honor of repulsing the enemy most handsomely. The conduct 
of the Thirty-third — under this terrible concentrated fire, which 
took us completely by surprise, w^as all that could be desired." 

On the morning of the 29th companies "A" and "F" were 
ordered on picket to deceive and hold in check the enemy while 
the remainder of the troops were withdrawn, General Smith, in 

*Tbfrd Kew York Light Battery commanded by Captain Tbaddeus P. Mott. — State

the fonr left companies advanced and relieved the picket-line. 
I was posted with my company to guard a road constructed by 
the enemy, through the edge of the swamp, with orders to hold it 
at all hazards. We had hardly reached the picket-line when the 
Confederates opened a heavy artillery Are from twenty pieces. 
Shot and shell flew in every direction, crashing through the trees 
and tearing up the ground all about us. Later were received 
orders from General Smith (Baldy) to fall back to our breastworks 
when the artillery fire would cease; but the firing continued for 
a full hour. Under cover of the underbrush and high river bank 
the enemy got in the rear of our picket-line. My attention was 
first called to this fact by shots, fired to my right and rear, that 
came from the enemy's skirmishers as they advanced through the 
underbrush. I faced my company to meet the emergency and 
fired two volleys into the advancing foe; this checked their 
progress and brought our picket-line to their feet. This move of 
the enemy cut off the six right companies and prevented their 
participating in the engagement. The four left companies fell 
back, contesting every inch of the ground, wheeling and firing as 
they reti'eated. As we reached our breastworks every man 
wheeled to face the enemy. On this occasion our mode of firing 
was: the rear rank sat down and emptied their catndges on the 
ground, at their right hand, and loaded for the front rank, which 
remained standing. In this position we calmly awaited th«^ 
approach of the foe. 

On they came, the Seventh and Eighth Georgia, led by the gal- 
lant Lamar. As they advanced, there instantly shot forth from 
behind our breastworks a sheet of flame, followed by another and 
ynother, until staggered by the galling tire the rebels wavered, 
broke and fled in great disorder from the Held. Not satisfied with 
the reception they had received, the Confederates reformed and 
again advanced, though more cautiously than at first; but they 
were again met by a murderous fire and compelled to fall back, 
leaving many of their number on the field. Maddened by the de- 
feat and carnage which had overtaken him, Colonel Lamar sprang 
in front of his men and waving his sword and hat incited them to 



28 Annual Report op the 

a renewal of the attack. Over a hundred rifles were instantly 
leveled at him and he fell dangerously wounded. At this oppor- 
tune moment a section of Captain Mott's battery, which had come 
up, opened an enfilading fire from the left and the victory was 
complete. Lieutenant-Colonel Towers, of the Seventh Greorgia, 
raised a white flag and we ceased firing. A small party went out 
and brought in the prisoners, including Colonel Lamar and Lieu- 
tenant-Colonel Towers. The latter oflicer was surprised to find so 
few men in our rifie-pits. He said he expected to find at least two 
regiments. He also said: " If my hat would hold bullets, I could 
have filled it where I was." 

This attempt of the Seventh and Eighth Georgia Regiments to 
capture the Thirty-third New York, resulted in their losing 91 
men killed and left on the field, a large number of wounded and 50 
prisoners, including a colonel and lieutenant-colonel, and 200 
stand of arms. We lost several in killed and wounded during 
the first part of the engagement. When forced back to the in- 
trenchments a number were taken prisoners, including Captain 
Theodore B.Hamilton, of Company G. Lieutenant Moses Church, 
of Comx)ajiy E, was killed in the breastworks. From my recol- 
lection of the engagement, our loss, all told, would not exceed 20 
or 25 officers and enlisted men. 

Immediately after the repulse, the six right companies marched 
into camp without losing a man. We then established a new 
picket-line, which we held until the morning of the 29th, when we 
fell back^ under cover of a dense fog and joined our brigade. Our 
division acted as i-oar guard during the retreat to Harrison's 
Landing. This terminated the battle of Golding's Farm. 

I have conferred with several members of my old company, who 
still live in Seneca Falls. It always gives me great pleasure to 
meet with them and fight the battles over again. What surprised 
them most^ was when I told them of the capture of Colonel 
Lamar and the Eighth Georgia by Lieutenant Edwin J. Tyler and 
four companies of the Thirty-third. The history of the regiment, 
speaking of the battle, says that Lieutenant Lucius O. Mix and 
Lieutenant Edwin J. Tyler, of Company A, succeeded, under a 



State Historian. 29 

galling fire, in collecting and placing in good order, the former 
Ms camp-guard, and the latter all others in camp — some fifty 
men, which leaves Lieutenant Tyler to have 18 men in his com- 
Dfiind, 10 connpany cooks and 8 others. I don't think for a 
moment that such a force could ever capture Colonel Lamar and 
the Seventh and Eighth Georgia Regiments. 

Lieutenant Tyler was a good oflQcer; he was in his proper place 
as acting adjutant. He was, with the aid of the camp-guards and 
others, to strike tents and secure baggage, etc., preparatory to 
retreating. The enemy struck tents for us; but not until they had 
received a good slashing with our jack-knives. 

On the night of the 28th, the regiment was again detailed to 
reinforce the picket-line. Captain Guion, of Company A; Cap- 
tain (James M.) McNair, of Company F; Lieutenant (Reuben C.) 
Niles, of Comipany- H, and Lieutenant (Bernard) Byrne, of Com- 
pany K, were of the detail. We had at this time abandoned our 
camp. McNair and Niles went on the line, Guion and Byrne re- 
mained in camp and destroyed everything of value, in the way of 
camp equipage. When relieved from the picket-line. Captain Mc- 
Nair, with a squad of men, in obedience to orders from General 
Dandson, destroyed everything of value in the remainder of the 
brigade camps. 

At this late date, the only feeling I have in the matter is a pride 
in the fact that I had the great honor of being a member of the 
Thirty-third Regiment, and of being a participant in so glorious 
an engagement, where every officer and man did his full duty. 

In concluding, 1 would say that there are seven or eight men, 
members of my old company and respected citizens of this village, 
who are ready and willing to verify every particular of the fore- 
going statement. I hereby present the name of Thomas Casey as 
one of the members. 

Trusting you may find some useful information in the above 
report, I have the honor to remain. 

Very sincerely yours,

30 Annual Report op the 

Major Pryce W. Bailey, of the Thirty-third New York, furnishes 
the following statement: 

Seneca Falls, N. Y., July 31st, 1897. 
Hugh Hastings, Esq., State HistoriaUy Albany , N. 7.: 

Dear Sir. — In compliance with your request of the 28th inst, 
for my version of the fight at Golding's Farm, Va., June 28th^ 
1862, I wish to state that I was at that time serving on the staff 
of General John W. Davidson, who commanded the biigade 
consisting of the Thirty-third, Forty-ninth and Seventy-seventh 
New York Volunteers and the Seventh Maine Regiment. It was 
known as the Third Brigade of the Second Division, Sixth 
Army Corps. This brigade had held the position on the 
south side of the Chickahominy since June 5th, known as Camp 
Lincoln, on what was called Golding's Farm. It had constructed 
one redoubt and a double line of rifle-pits and had proven their 
utility and strength in several small fights during the month. 
We were confronted by what we knew as the Georgia Brigade, 
consisting of the Seventh, Eighth and Tenth Georgia Regiments 
and one rt^giraent of Virginians. A very friendly f(»eling existed 
between the men of the opposing forces; to such an extent was 
this so that an agreement was entered into stipulating that each 
should warn the other when thc^ arniislicc was to sever and hostili- 
ties begin. It was on the 26tli of June, I believe, that notice was 
given by the Georgians that all civilities unist be suspended. 
Then began the hard fighting on our right at ^lechanicsville by 
Fitz John Porter and McCall. 

The enemy attacked on our fronts evidently to prevent the witli- 
drawal of any troox>s to reinforce General Porter, and, to that 
extent, was successful. 

On the night of the 27th we were ordered to make a noisy 
demonstration, presumably to impress the enemy in our front with 
the idea that, as the bulk of Porter's Corps had crossed to our side 
of the swamp, a stand would there be made on the morrow by the 
whole army of the Potomac. Instead of that, an entirely opposite 
move was contemplated, which later in the night became evident. 



State Historian. 31 

Orders were received from the division oommander, General W. 
F. (Baldy) Smith, to the effect that the brigade should destroy all 
heavy camp equipage and hold its line as long as possible. The 
army was to be withdrawn from its position in front of Richmond, 
and our brigade was to be the rear guard until the hospital, with 
its army of sick and wounded, and supply depot at Savage Station, 
could be cared for and a new temporary defensive line could be 
adopted. In the performance of this duty, the brigade took pos- 
session of its rifle-pits and made preparations to hold that line od 
long as there were any men to fight or orders to withdraw received. 

In front of the left of the Thirty-third was a narrow roadway 
which had been made through the swamp for the troops to pass to 
and from the advanced picket-line. On the right of this road 
a swamp gently declined through low lands to the Chickahominy, 
over which was a bridge that was deemed of considerable im- 
portance because there yet remained thousands of Porter^s Corps 
on the north side, the scene of the previous two days' hard fight- 
ing. General Smith had ordered strenuous resistance to any 
movement on the part of the enemy in the direction of that bridge. 
He well knowing that no sortie in force could be made in our 
front, except by way of the road before mentioned, had ordered it 
covered by Mott's New York Battery, supported by the Seventy- 
seventh and Forty-ninth Regiments. In the gray of the morn- 
ing of the 28th, a portion of the Georgian brigade began a move- 
ment on their extreme left, in the direction of the bridge, with 
the view to capture it and thus prevent the escape of any more of 
Porter's men. Six companies of the Thirty-third were detached 
to drive them back, which was sucessfully done after some hard 
fighting on both sides. About the time this move was checked, 
a strong force, which proved to be the Seventh and Eighth 
Georgia Regiments, commanded by Lieutenant-Colonel Towers 
and Colonel Lamar, I'espectively, vigorously advanced en masse 
by the roadway. The Thirty-third being divided, its field officers 
being with the main portion, with a considerable distance inter- 
vening, the captains of the four left companies, feeling the ex- 
treme urgency for the best efforts of every man and a determina- 



i

tion to hold their line, sent word to Acting Adjutant Lieutenant 
Edwin J. Tyler, of Company A, to bring up reinforcements as 
rapidly as possible, if any could be got. Tyler, acting with his 
usual impetuous gallantry, turned out every man, camp-guards, 
cooks, sick and convalescents, and marched them to the front at 
double-quick step. The batteries opened fire; the infantry, en- 
couraged by Trier's bravery and prompt action, concentrated 
such a fire upon the advancing Georgians as resulted in the 
annihilation of the Eighth and the capture of the greater portion 
of the Seventh. Each of the four companies captured more than 
their own numbers; including in their prisoners Lamar and 
Towers. 

The four companies were E, K, G and B, commanded by Cap- 
tains (Wilson B.) Warford, (Patrick) McGraw, (Theodore B.) 
Hamilton and (Alexander H.) Drake, respectively. 

The Thirty-third Regiment always did its whole duty. The 
battle of Gelding's Farm was one of the places where it did more 
than was expected of any command, viz., captured more prison- 
ers than their own numbers. The conspicuous gallantry of 
Lieutenant Tyler contributed more to the grand result than any- 
thing else possibly could. 

Very truly yours, 

PRYCE W. BAILEY.

General Nuoext's De8crh»tion of the Splendid Work that 
WAS Performed ry the Irish Rrkjade before 
Marye*s Heights, December 11-15, 1862. 

In fspite of the exceedingly creditable record made by the Sixty- 
ninth Begiment at the battle of Fredericksburg, Va., in Decem- 
ber, 1862, the only mention found in the Official Rci'ords of the 
Rebellion is contained in th(» subjoined imragraph — the only 
official report made for the regiiiH'nt, by Captain James Saunders: 

**Iii compliance with general orders received l)eceinbt»r 2, I 
hereby certify that the Sixty-ninth Re^giment, New York Volun- 
teers, entered the battle of Fn^dericksburg, on December 13, 1862, 
commanded by Colonel Robert Nug(»nt, and 18 commissioned offi- 
cers and 210 rank and file, in which the above numbered n^giment 
lost 16 commissioned officers and 160 rank and file, leaving Cap- 
tain Jame« Saunders, Lieutenant (Robert II.) Milliken and Lieu- 
tHiant L. (Luke) Brennan to bring the rc*innant of the regim<*nt 
off the battle-field." 

The fact has been established that the bodies of men from this 
organization, with sprigs of boxwood in their hats, were found 
nearest the stone wall at Marye's Heights. The following enter- 
taining and instructive narrative fi*om the pen of Ceneral Robert 
Xugent, U. S. A., was written at the request of this office, to fill 
a liistorical gap. 



36 Annual Report of the 

GKNERAL NUGKNT'.S NARRATIVK. 

Some thirty-six years ago the first regiment of an Irish Brigade 
took departure from the great metropolis, to the National Capital, 
to engage in a conflict on the very threshold of a great internecine 
war that was to determine the destinies of this great Republic. 

On arriving at Washington on the morning of the 20th of 
November, 18G1, we pitched tents just outside the confines of the 
city, encamping on a beautiful knoll christened " Camp Corcoran/" 
in honor of that distinguished soldier, Michael Corcoran, then a 
prisoner at Libby Prison. 

The organization of the Sixty-ninth New York Volunteers, 
the First Regiment of the Bngade had its full complement 
of officers numbering thirty-eight, with rank and file of one 
thousand souls, the best the Irish brawn could famish, 
eager for the fray. Here we remained encamped until the 
30th of November following, when, in obedience to orders 
from the War Department, we broke camp and proceeded 
to report to General Sumner at Camp California, Va., 
arriving on the 1st day of December,'1861, being soon joined by 
the Sixty-third and Eighty-eighth New York Volunteers, which 
had come on from New York and were assigned to the brigade. 

The establishment of the brigade having been completed, I was 
ordered by General Sumner to assume command, being the senior 
colonel in rank. This I did, retaining command until February, 
1862, when I was relieved by that illustrious patriot, statesman 
and soldier^ Thomas Francis Meagher, who was commissioned 
brigadier-general and who then took command, leading it on to 
victory in many fields of battle, and whose history is written on 
the escutcheon of every patriot at home and abroad. 

In the political organization and existence of nationalities there 
is always some insignia, some symbol by which their distinctive 
character is known; so like a nation, for the brigade was the repre- 
sentative of that glorious race which fought so nobly on the fields 
of Fontenoy, the Irish Brigade was distinguished by its insignia, 
its red trefoil, its green feather, and above all by its glorious 



State Historian. 37 

stnndard, the flag of its adopted country, the Stars and Stripes, 
wliioh we carried successfully through so many battles, unstained 
by the hand of the enemy, and the tattered remnants now in the 
Armory of the Sixty-ninth Regiment are the only vestiges of what 
remain to exemplify the deeds of fallen comrades, the memory of 
which exalts us to the highest pitch of patriotism. The brigade 
remained at Camp California until the 10th day of March, 1862, 
when the Army of the Potomac moved on to Manassas' under 
command of that gallant soldier, the late General George B. 
McClellan. 

The army did not meet the enemy at Manassas and returned to 
Alexandria, embarking for Fortress Monroe, thence up the York 
river to Ship Point, thence to Yorktown. The Siege of Yorktown 
was this brigade's baptism of fire. Fair Oaks came next. A few 
days after this battle, the Twenty-ninth Massachusetts was as- 
siped to the brigade. The brigade was then known as the 
Second Irish Brigade, First Division, Second Corps, and 
served in the First Division from its organization in 
December, 18G1, until its final muster-out of service June, 1865, 
ending of the war, comioanded respectively by such famous sol- 
diers as Sumner, Richardson, Caldwell, Barlow and Miles, the 
present commander of the United Statis Army, and as Colonel 
William F. Fox, in his most interesting history of the regimental 
losses, says: "Any regiment following the fortunes of these men 
was sure to find plenty of bloody work cut out for it.'' And again 
hesays: "But the hardest fighting and greatest lossof life occurred 
in the First Division of the 'Second Corps, Hancock's old division, 
in which more men were killed and wounded in the Union Army, 
east or west. It was in this division the Irish Brigade served from 
its organization in 1861, until April, 1865; " and so it was, for the 
brigade took part in the Siege of Yorktown, the battles of Fair 
Oaks, Gaines Mill, Savage Station, Peach Orchard, White Oak 
Swamp, Glendale, Malvern Hill and Antietam, so that when the 
Second Corps arrived at Falmouth, in front of Fredericksburg, 
November 17th, 1862, the ranks of the brigade were very much 
depleted from the great losses sustained by the brigade in each

The Army of the Potomac had been resting at Falmouth fro

Knirid divisions, (he right <*onsisting of the S<n'ond and Nin

different elevations, and the top or crest was garnished with artil- 
lery. At the base or foot of the heights there runs a stone wall^ 
and behind this was posted a strong force of infantry. From the 
fioint where the brigade formed its line of battle to this stone wall 
is a quarter of a mile. The ground inclines in a gentle ascent 
thraoghout the whole distance. Now the slope between the point 
wbei-e the brigade formed its line of battle and the stone wall 
constitutes the battle-field. The scene presented an impenetrable 
barrier, an impregnable fort, a veritable Chinese wall. Previous 
to the attack and before the final orders were given to advance on 
the works, General Hancock, then in command of the First Di- 
vision, Second Corps, sent for all the colonels of the Birst Division, 
some fourteen in number, and thus addressed them : " Gentlemen, 
1 have called you together for the purpose of communicating to 
you the orders of the commanding general. They are imperative 
and must be carried out at all hazards and at all costs." 
Describing how the battle would be opened he said : 
'* General French's Division would lead the advance, sujiported 
by his division, Zook's Brigade supporting French, the Irish 
Brigade supporting Zook, and CaldweH's Brigade supporting the 
Irish Brigade, and if one or either line should fail the other should 
pass on and over and so on until the works of the enemy were 
carried, advising, however, that all mounted oflBcers should go in 
on foot, as we were going to have a severe struggle, and that 
scarcely a pigeon could live through it/' 

When the general had finished his short address the fourteen 
colonels shook each other by the hand, manv of them for the last 
time. The gallant Cross of the Fifth New Hampshire was stand- 
ing alongside of me and on my right; turning around and taking 
him by the hand I said: " Cross, we are going to have hot work to- 
day, but if you get into Richmond before 1 do, order dinner at the 
Spottflwood House and I will dine with you.'' 

Cross who wa« a good fellow and a very gallant soldier, a little 
profane at times, replied to me in very strong and (»niphatie terms, 
'• So and so, Nugent we are.'' 



40 Annual Report of the 

We did not carry the works, we did not get into Richmond tha 
day, the dinner has never been ordered, as both Cross and mysel 
were wonnded. In his next fight, Gettysburg, the brave and gal 
lant soldier gave up his life for his country's cause. 

As soon as the colonels of the division had bade each othe 
goodby, they returned to their respective regiments. Knowini 
what General Hancock expected of each one, I went along th 
stacks of muskets of my regiment to find out what I had to sup 
port me in the coming struggle, that was so soon to follow. 

While in the act of counting the muskets, Father Willett, chap 
lain of the Sixty-ninth, came up to me and asked me if he could g 
along the line and say a word to the men. I replied, " oertainl 
Father, and if you will wait a moment until I finish counting th 
muskets of the regiment I will go with you." 

Finishing the counting I found I had 214, of which I will refe 
to later, and accompanied the Father to the right of the regimeni 
Although not a Catholic myself, I was the first man to receiv 
the good Father's blessing. He then went along the line blesi 
ing each man, Catholic and Protestant alike, and these men wen 
into the fight as cheerfully as they would into a ball-room. As soo 
as the Father had finished his religious duties to the regiment, 
placed in his hat a sprig of boxwood which I had received froi 
General Meagher, telling the men of the regiment that I woul 
make an Irishman out of the Fath.er that da}^ — the good Fathc 
being a French Canadian. 

It was the happy thought of Gcueial Meagher that morning tha 
each man of the brigade should wear a sprig of boxwood in his caj 
so that in case he fell on the battle-field, the sprig would indical 
he was a member of the Irish Brigade; and as so suggested by th 
General, each man was furnished with a sprig of green. It i 
a well known fact, it is a matter of history, that the men wearin 
the sprig of green were found lying dead very close, very close ii 
deed, in front of the celebrated stone wall.* 

The brigade finally received the order to advance from the tow 
or city of Fredericksburg, marching by the fiank, the Sixty-nintl

Btatb Historian. 41 

Colonel Nugent, on the right, the Eighty-eighth, Ck)loneI Patrick 
Kelly, second in line, the Twenty-eighth Massachnaetts, Colonel 
(Richard) Byrnes, third in line, the Sixty-third New York, Major 
(Joseph) O'Neill, fourth in line, and the One Hundred and Six- 
teenth Pennsylvania, Colonel (Dennis) Heenan, fifth in line, cross- 
ing the canal or mill-race, which runs in rear of the city, by a 
narrow bridge. The Sixty-ninth and Eighty-eighth advanced be- 
yond the bridge about one hundred yards and filed to the right 
and halted, the other regiments forming on the left of the Eighty- 
eighth by the command on the right by file into line. 

Thus the line of battle of the brigade was completed, and during 
its formation it was under a terrific fire from the enemy's artil- 
lery, they having a perfect range of the bridge over which the 
brigade had crossed. Here we remained a short time awaiting 
the final orders to make the attack on the works of the enemy, and 
while waiting, an aid from General Hancock came on the ground 
with an order to General Meagher, to send two companies of the 
Sixty-ninth out a short distance to the ri^ht, where we had formed, 
to protect a knoll, lest the enemy should make his appearance in 
that direction. On receiving this order from General Meagher I 
ordered the two companies under command of Captain James 
Saunders, to proceed to this point. These two companies numbered 
forty-six men and three officers, Captain Saunders, Lieutenant 
(Robert H.) Milliken and Lieutenant Brennan, remaining in this 
position most of thedayand did not accom])any the regiment while 
the brigade made its famous charge on the celebrated stone wall. 
As soon as these comjxanies were posted, the brigade advanced 
to the support of French's division, and the brigade of Zook, who 
had preceded the Irish Brigade. General Meagher gave the 
order for the advance, and in his report of the battle, says: 
**Thu8 formed, under the unabating tempest of shot and shell, 
the Irish Brigade advanced at the double-quick against the rifie- 
pitB, the breast- works, and batteries of the enemy. I myself 
ordered the advance, encouraged the line, and urged it on; but 
owing to a most painful ulcer in the kn(»e-joint, which I had con- 
cealed and borne up against for days, I was compelled, with a 



42 Annual Kkpout ob' the 

view to be of aav fuithur service to the brigade that day, to return 
over the plowed field over which we had advanced from the mill- 
race. I did so to get my horse, wlii<'h had been left at the head of 
street from which our column had debouched, in care of my order- 
lies, along with the other horses of the field and staff officers of 
the brigade, Brigadier-General Hancock having suggested that it 
would be advisable for all such officers to act on foot. ♦ * • 
Passing down the s1o[k\ and through crowds of slain and 
wound(»d, I reached the s[>ot where I had left my horse and 
mounted him. Having mounted. I started with one of my order- 
lies to rejoin the brigade on the right,and with that view took the 
street across which the two comi>anies of the Sixty-ninth under 
Oaptain James Saunders, a staunch and fearless officer, had been 
deployed as skirmishers. I had not proceeded many paces up 
this strcM^t. before I met the remnant of the Sixty-third, bearing 
th<^ r(»gini(»ntal colore, coming toward me^ under the command of 
Captain Cfleeson, one of the bravest and most reliable officers of 
the brigade. With these few survivors of the Sixty-third were a 
portion of the Sixty-ninth." 

I have* stated that where the brigade formed its line of battle 
to the stone wall is a quarter of a mile, and constituted the battle- 
field. The brigade advanced at the double-quick, and was met 
by a most murd(M*ous fire from the artillery, rifle-pits, and stone 
wall of the Confederat(»s. l^lssi ug over dead and dying of thosf* 
brave fellows of FnMicli and Zook, the brigade charged, and kept 
its line of battle as pt»rf(Ht as was possible under such a galling 
fire. As the men dropjM^d or f(*ll when shot, the line kept closing 
in, not a num faltend, charged up to and over the last fence 
within thirt V or fort v vards of th(» stone wall, and bv the time the 
brigade readuMl this point, had lost hundreds of its gallant 
fellows. 

Tlit^ fight was teirilir; no i)en can d(*scrib(* th(» horrors of this 
batil(\ TIm* casualtiis were tMiornious. It was a living hell 
from wliirli ♦*s<aiM' seennMl scarc(*ly possible. I was myself car- 
ri<Ml otr the rtehl, having been shot through the right side. I 
was heading the charge*.

V\ virtue of the commanding position of the enemy no attack 
(oiild have been successful. It was not thirty minutes from the 
time the brigade sprang forward with a yell to the time when 
broken and routed, what was left of it fell back upon the city, 
and it was here met by General Meagher at the head of the street 
where the column had debouched. The General was unable to 
lead the brigade on foot in the charge, as he intended, but by 
the time he had reached his horse the brigade had made its fight 
and was almost annihilated. 

General Francis A. Walker in his history of the Second Corps 
reports that, Inspector-General Morgan, Si*cond Corps, and Col- 
onel John R. Brooke, Fifty-third Pennsylvania, now Major Gen- 
eral U. S. A., who had charge of the detachment detailed to bury 
the dead a few days after the battle, have stated that the bodies 
found nearest the stone wall were men of the Sixtv-ninth New 
York Volunteers, Fifth New ilampHliire and Fifty-third Pennsyl- 
vania. The Sixty-ninth on marching from the city to where 
the line of battle was formed, had nineteen officers and two 
hundred and fourteen muskets, as before stated, with five non- 
commissioned staff, making in all two hundred and nineteen 
t^nlisted men. The two loniijanies under Caj^tain Saunders de- 
tached from the regiment at this point, nnnibered forty-six men 
and three officers, left with the n»giiiient on(* hundred and 
seventy-thrc^ enlisted men and sixteiMi officers to go directly into 
the tight, and out of this number engaged with the enemy, one 
hundred and twelve men wen* killed and wounded, leaving sixty- 
one enlisted men to come out of the fight unharmed; of the six- 
teen officers two were killed. Lieutenants (Andntw) Birmingham 
and (John) Conway, and fourtcHMMi wounded, so that not an officer 
of the sixteen who went into the fight but was either killed or 
wounded. And it was a most fortunate circumstance for the 
regiment that the two companies un(h»r (Japtain Saunders were 
80 detach€Hl, for with them and the sixty-one (^nlisted men who 
Soaped unharmed from th(* fight, were all the regiment had for 
duty next day. 

Among the wounded were Major (James) Cavanagh, Captains 
(Thomas) Leddy, (John H.) Donovan, Lieutenant (Patrick)

were killed and wounded. 

The Twenty-eighth Massachusetts, Colonel Byrnes, took into 
the fight sixteen officers and four hundred enlisted men; had 
three officers killed. Lieutenants Edwin J. Weller, John Sullivan 
and William Holland, and four wounded; among the wounded 
was Major Caraher; and one hundred and forty-nine enlisted

From the Siege of Yorktown up to and including the battle of 
Fredericksburg, Dec'r 13th, 18G2, there were killed and wounded 
in officers ninetv-six, and in enlisted men fifteen hundred and 
twenty-one, making a total of sixteen hundred and seventeen. 

The brigade participated in no less than thirty-four battles 
throughout the war, and had enlisted in its organization no leee 
than seven thousand men. ^^'llen at the cessation of hostilities 
it reached New York, its number was less than one thousand.

displayed, by men whose military genius and bravery is known 
throughout the civilized world, than was displayed at the cele- 
brated stone wall on Marye's Heights at Fredericksburg, the 
Bloody Lane at Antietam, and the repulse of the courageous 
Tenth Louisianans at Malvern Hill. 

Meagher, Byrnes, Kelly, Smith, McGee, Burke and Nugent 
were from time to time its commanders. Meagher, whose dis- 
tinguished services at home and abroad are so well known that 
time cannot obliterate them ; Byrnes of the Twenty-eighth Massa- 
chusetts, brave and gallant soldier, was killed at Cold Harbor 
on the 3d of June, 1864; Kelly, the faithful, honest and true 
soldier, was killed a few days after in front of Petersburg on 
June IGth, 1864; and the gallant and dashing soldier, General 
Tom Smythe was the last general oflicer of the Army of the 
Potomac that was killed, on the picket-line April 6th, 1865, while 
in command of his brigade of the Second Division, Second Corps; 
MoGee, that fearless soldier, died of wounds received in front of 
Petersburg; and of the regimental commanders Burke rose from 
the lowest rung of the ladder to the top for gallant conduct on 
every field, is gone. 

From Yorktown to Appomattox the same old spirit prevailed 
that characterized the Irish soldier the world over — full of fun, 
full of frolic, and full of fight. It was a noble brigade, it was 
a grand brigade, magnificently officered, perfectly disciplined, on 
the march, in camp, or in battle, it was ever cheerful and brave, 
ready to respond to the bugle call. General Hancock, our gal- 
lant corps commander, had often said to me, that the Irish Bri- 
gade never knew when to disobey an order. The Sixty-ninth 
stands at the head of the New York infantry regiments, having 
lost more men killed and mortally wounded in action, than any 
regiment from the State. It is a grand and glorious i-ecord. It 
needs no words of praise. Its name will live in history. Its 
record was unsurpassed. I know of no greater compliment to 
bestow upon this noble brigade than to assign it to a place upon 
the endearing escutcheon of fame along with the Light Brigade 

at Balaklava.

THE EIGHTY-NINTH INFANTRY AT FREDEBICKSBUBQ. 

One Hundred Voluntebrs Cross the Rappahannock in Boats^ 
Capture Confederate Sharpshooters and thus Insure 
THE Laying op the Pontoon Bridges. 

The Eighty-ninth New York Volunteer Infantry has never re- 
ceived the credit it was entitled to for its patriotic services at the 
first battle of Fredericksburg, Va. Early on the morning of the 
nth of December, 1862, the Eighty-ninth, Colonel Harrison S. 
Fairchild commanding, was placed in position on the north bank 
of the Rappahannock river, opposite the old steamboat landing. 

A detachment from the Fiftieth New York Engineers, under 
command of Major Ira Spaulding, was trying to lay a pontoon 
bridge near the Lacy House, but the hot fire of the enemy's sharp- 
shooters seriously impeded their efforts. After two-thirds of the 
bridge had been laid across the narrow stream, the engineers were 
driven from their work and Captain Augustus S. Perkins was 
killed by the Confederate sharpshooters, who occupied the build- 
ings on the south side of the river. A number of attempts were 
made to complete the work^ but in every instance the Union troops 
were shot down or driven back. 

Realizing the hopelessness of completing the bridge while the 
sharpshooters controlled the southern bank. General Bumside 
ordered Colonel Fairchild to detail four oflBcers and one hundred

men from his command, whkb had baen in poeition from 2 oVlork 
in the morning till 4 o'clock in the afternoon, to cross the river 
in pontoon bout», drive out the sharpshooters and take poflseseiou 
of the liouses. Genenil George \V. Getty, who commanded the 
Third Division of the Kinth Army Corps, to which the Eighty- 
ninth was attached, in his official report says: "'This order w«s 
most gallantly carried into effect." 

The detail was in command of the following oflicei-a: Captain 
Frank Kurt, of K Company; Captain James Huzley, of U Com- 
pany; Captain Keyniour L. Judd, of G Company, and First Li-n- 
tenant Wellington M. Lewis, of H CimiiKiny. 

Each iromniand consisted of a detaclimenl of tweiityUve men 
who occu])ied a boat. The crowning was covered by t\w fire of 
the Union batteries, and of regiments drawn up in tine along the 
river hank. One of the survivors, in recalling the incident, writes: 
" We all expected to be killed before we reached the shore." 

The boats were pushed hastily acros9,thp intrepid troops sprang' 
out and in a very brief time took possession of the boases and 
captured sixly-fonr prisoners, including fourcommissioujd ofBcen. 

General Kush C. Hawkins, who commanded the brigade, fli hlK 
ofilcial rejKirt said: "Too much praise cannot be bestowed upoift 
the officers and men who so gallantly crossed the river, 
owing to this daring and boldness that our t

boats. The two detachments w<Te combined and were marched 
to the main street of the city. Here pickets were thrown out and 
the rej^iment bivouacked for the night. 

General Orlando B. Willcox, commanding the Ninth Corps of 
the Army of the Potomac, closes his report of the battle of Fred- 
ericksburg with this sentence: "Accompanied her<*with is a list 
of rht* oflici^rs and nu^n of the Eighty-ninth K(»gini(»nt New York 
Volunteers who crossed the river in boats before referred to.-' 

In preparing the Official Records of the Rebellion, the govern- 
ment compilers were not able to find the list which General 
Willcox ref(u*s to. 

This office undertook to find the list. The regiment was raised 

in the counties of Broome, Chenango, Delaware, Livingston, 

Mom'oe and SchuyhT. It was known that two of the officers were 

dead, Captain Judd, who died of wounds, and Lieutenant Lewis. 

Captain Burt had resigned January 22, 1864, and Captain Hazley 

was mustered out October 7, 1804. With the co-operation of 

<ieneral James S. Cilraham, of Ro(h(»ster, who was then D(*part- 

nient Commander of the (J. A. R., a i>aragraph was instMtcd in 

^'^leral Orders No. 8, of date Fc^bruaiy 15, 1><J)7, asking the assist- 

^^ic of the survivors to furnish i\w names. This paragraph was 

/'Ublished in the New York Tribune, and was seen by Captain 

"^^rt, who had devoted several years after the war to collecting 

^^le names of the hundred heroes who crossed the river. 

Captain Hazley, who is living at Binghamton, forwarded the 

^^mes of the twenty-five men of his command. Captain Burt, 

^^owever, (juestions the accuracy of Captain Hazley's list. He 

^vrites: ^* The company (Hazley 's) was one of the smallest in tin* 

^'<^ginient. Captain Hazley was not able to give iiu* any list in 



o2 Annual Report op the 

1868. The twenty-five names he gives you now must include eve 
member of his company at the time — in fact I think Edward ^ 
Cafferty did not belong to the company at the time." 

Both lists, however, are printed in connection with the report. 

In the efforts to obtain the list, more or less correspondei 
naturally occurred on the part of this office and survivors of t 
regiment. A number of the old soldiers agree that General Bui 
side promised medals of honor to every man who crossed in t 
boats. At the close of the war Captain Burt opened a correspoi 
ence with General Burnside, who promised to have the med) 
awarded if a list was sent to him of the men who crossed. Ci 
tain Burt applied at the War Department, but no trace of the 1 
that had been filed with General Willcox's report was 'four 
Then it was that Captain Burt started in to make a new list. 1 
sent a copy to General Buruside, but Burnside, if 
ever received the list, paid no attention to the matt< 
Like General Gibbon's promise of medals to the twenty-five vok 
teers from the Thirty-fourth New York Infantry, who crossed t 
same river at the same spot in May, 1863, and drove out t 
Confederate sharpshooters from the houses in precisely the sai 
manner as the Eighty-ninth had done five months before, nothi: 
ever came of it. If ever men were entitled to medals for heroic 
under fire, the members of these detachments from the Eighi 
ninth in December, 1862, and from the Thirty-fourth Infantry 
May, 1863, certainly were. Their generals pledged their word, a 
after the service was rendered the pledge and the word seemed 
be forgotten. 

Subjoined will be found the list as compiled by Captain Burt:

Their Work During the Thancellorsville and 

(tETTYSBURO rAMFAlGXa. 

The Eii^ineor Corps of the Army of the Potomac has been gen- 
erally overlooked, pnmarily because of its diminished numbers, 
and secondarily because the so-called fighting arms, cavalry, artil- 
lery and infantry, have attracted greater attention and monopo- 
lized most of the time of military and historical writers and 
speakers. Nevertheless, the volunteer engineer organizations de- 
serve a very high place in history. It is not generally known 
that outside of the regular engineers, New York 8tate furnished 
the only organized body of troops for this scientific department. 
^^ better re(*ords could be made than those of the First, Fifteenth 
and Fiftieth New York Engineers. 

Owing to the dilatory disposition of General Henry W. Benham 

^^ the Regular Army, who was in general command of the engi- 

'^^r forces, two of our New York i-egiments, the Fifteenth and 

fiftieth, have been very much misrepresented and have, to all 

*^ tents and purposes, been laboring und(»r a cloud since the 

-^hancellorsville campaign. To add to the* general embarrassment 

^f the situation, the report of the officer in command of the Volun- 

^^r Engineers, Colonel William H. Pettes, which would have 



60 Annual Repout of the 

shown that the allegations and misrepresentations made against 
his troops were unjustified, has been lost. This report is men- 
tioned in the Official Records of the Rebellion by General Benbam, 
who states that he has enclosed a copy of it with his report, but 
unfortunately the report itself does not appear, nor can it be 
found. 

Governed by a determination to vindicate these meritorious or- 
ganizations from the calumnies that have rested on them, commu- 
nication was opened by this office with sev(»ial of the surviving offi- 
cers, with encouraging results. General headquarters called Gen- 
eral Benham to account for his failure to lay the pontoon bridges 
below Fredericksburg on the morning of April 29. In his explana- 
tion to Adjutant-General Williams, General Benham says: **I con- 
sider the laying of those five biidgi^s in tinu^s ranging from one 
hour to one hour and forty-five^ minutes (thf? bridges extended from 
100 to 140 yards apart. — State Histouiax), as only an instance of 
signal, if not unj>recr'dentcd success, which resultt d only from the 
exact compliance with the directions given by, as far as I learned, 
every officer and man of the Engineer Brigade and the most hearty 
assistance of that fine ofiicer, (ieneral Pratt* and his command^ 
consisting of tlie excellent ofilc(*rs and men of his brigade and 
Colonel (Alexander) Shaler\s.'- 

At this time the Engineer Brigade consisted of seventeen hun- 
dred men, of which three hundred were regular troops, the Fif- 
teenth and Fiftieth averaging about seven hundred men each. 
During the i>eriod of nine days from the time Hooker's army 
crossed the Rappahannock till it found itself again on the northern 
bank, fourteen bridges (five of them relays) were placed over the 
Rappahannock. 



* The laU) Calf In E. Pratt of Brooklyn — State Historian. 



Statb Historian. 61 

General Benham says : " The bridges were, first, a canvas pon- 
toon bridge at Kelly's Ford, about twenty-five miles by the road 
aboTe Fredericksburg, or twelve in a direct line; three wooden 
pontoon bridges (one of them made partly of Waterman's pon- 
toons) at the United States Ford, about eighteen miles by road 
(or ten in right line) above Fredericksburg; two at Banks' Ford, 
at about four miles above (these brought up from below the city); 
three at the city (relaid after being taken up from below), and 
three at abont two and a half and two at about five miles below 
Fredericksburg. By the canvas pontoon train there passed over 
Stoneman's Cavalry, about nine thousand strong, and this bridge 
was much approved, as I learn. Over the three bridges at the 
United States Ford there passed and repassed the bulk of General 
Hooker's Army, with all its artillery, although the river rose 
some five feet by a violent rain, which, after preparation for with- 
drawal had commenced, set in so violently as to break away one 
or two of the bridges." 

Colonel Francis Bacon, of the Fiftieth New York Engineers, 
now of Waterloo, N. Y., writes to the State Historian under date 
of April 7th, 1807, as follows, of the services of the engineers 
during the Chancellorsville compaign: 

" Your favor of April 5th at hand, and I have carefully perused 
the same, and in reply I am glad to have the opportunity to defend 
the engineer soldiers and officers of the Fifteenth and of the Fif- 
tieth from the cloud under which they have lived, or from under 
the cloud which exists in regard to the important duties which 
they performed at the Chancellorsville fight referred to in your 
letter. 

" I have very often during the past twenty-five or thirty years 
been obliged to defend them when they have been unduly criti- 
cised, and am glad that you are interested that posterity should 



L 



02 Anmal Kkpoht of tiik 

know something of the work which they perforuied during the 
Hooker campaign. 

'* The Engineer Brigade were on hand ready and anxious upon 
April 29, 1863, to lay the bridge or the bridges which it was their 
duty to lay, to enable the array to cross the Rappahannock river, 
and,in my opinion, the delay which ensued in the morning was due 
to the over cautiousness of Gen. Wadsworth and of Gen. Brooks, 
and of the conflict of authority at that time; or, perhaps I might 
better say, to the lack of a clear understanding between them as to 
the assignment of infantry to protect the engineer forces in carry- 
ing the boats from the piece of woods where they had been placed 
down to the river's bank, to enable them to ferry across the river 
the men of Gen. Wadsworth Corps.* In my oi>inion,it would have 
b(H^n very much better to have pushed the boats right to the bank 
of the river upon th(» wagons, unloaded them and put them across; 
that was the idea of all of the otlicers and th(»ir earnest desire, 
and it was made known to commanding officers at the time, bat 
they were restrainc^l and held back. The delay was, perhaps, a 
little unfortunate, but the bridge was very quickly built: 1 was 
present at the building of the bridge at Tnited States Ford, and 
I know that those three bridges were built in the night and were 
built and thrown across in h'ss than 1hirt^ minntes. The Ottieial 
Records do not d(^ tlii' Kngineer Hrigadi* justice; at the time that 
the rain set in. when it was neci^ssary to make one bridge of the 
tliRH^, I know that the men worked for nearly (Mght hours stand- 
ing in water, sometimes, where it was almost up to their necks, 
and which, had they not have done so, would have left Hookers 
army therc^ at the mercy of the Confederates, but as fast as the 
water arose in the Rappahannock river during that flood, and it 
rose over six feet, they kept adding on to one bridge, kept a 
[tassage across the river during tin* whole of that afternoon and 
night, and th(» army was safely crossed back to the north side of 
the river upon that bi-idge or a large ])ortion of it, and the same 
was true of tlu* bridges that wen* laid at the Lacy House and also

up at Kellv's Ford. You are, i)erhai>8, aware that during that 
campaign they laid, if my memory serves me right, some fourteen 
bridges, moving their bridges and wagons many times, miles 
through mud that was almost unfathomable; with those heavy 
wagons and heavy loads were almost insurmountable obstacles 
to encounter and to overcome, and but for the extraordinary 
efforts taken by the Engineer Brigade at that time, would have 
been extremely disastrous to the Army of the Potomac.-' 

General Edmund O. Beers, late Lieutenant-Colonel of the 
Fiftieth Regiment, under date of Washington, 1). C, April 15, 

1807 writes: 

"Your letter of the 1st iust. has been forwarded to me here. 
I am sorry that I cannot put you in a way to obtsiin a copy of the 
report of Colonel Pett<*s, on the batth* of Chancellorsville. I pre- 
sume he made a report of the movements of the regiment, at that 
time, but I have not the slightest idea what has become of it. He 
had a son, (*aptain Fi*ed. IVttes, in the regiment, who was at 
• Xvack, X. Y., the last I knew of him, but 1 do not think it at all 
probable that he ever had that r(»port. 

* I only know of my own movements at that time. 1 find, by 
reference to my diaries, that on the 29th of April, 1868, I built 
two bridges at what was known as Pollock's Mills, about six 
miles below Fredericksburg, Va. The movement in that direc- 
tion was designed as a feint to hold quite a portion of Lee's 
army in that Wcinity, and to ket^p them away from Chancellors- 
ville. On April 30th, acting under orders, I took up one of the 
bridges and sent it up to Banks' Ford, with two companies, 
where the balance of the regiment was at that time. This left 
me but a portion of one company, just enough to take up the 
remaining bridge. 

'*0n Saturday, May 2d, I took up the remaining bridge, which 
I was ordered to do,and to report at Fredericksburg. The enemy 
Were following the last of our troojm so closely to cross the river, 
that I was obliged to cut the up stream cables, swing the bridge, 
and dismantle it along shore. After the bridge was taken out 
of the water, I ordered teams down to haul it away, but was 



64 Annual Report of the 

informed by the " Johnnies " that muks were too sacred an animal 
to be used for such purposes, and that we must haul it back by 
handy or leave it where it was. 

" I moved from Pollock's Mills to opi)osite Fredericksbupg, on 
the night of May 2d. Before arriving at that point, I was met 
by an Aide, who had orders for me to lay the bridge near the 
Lacy house. I unloaded the bridge, got it down to the river — 
Rappahannock — and commenced laying it, a short time before 
daylight, Sunday morning. May .*id. There was quite a moon, 
and I observed the glistening of guns in the rifle-pits on the 
Fredericksburg side, which I believed to be occupic*d by the 
<»n(»iny, and so r(»por(ed to Oenoral (Jibbon, who was in command 
of the advance, to cross tlie rivfM\ and asked him to furnish me 
with a sufficient number of men (hat I rould \n\\. across the river 
in boats, to take* possession of tlie lifle-pils. He did not agree 
with me, but was of the opinion that our own tiuops occupied 
the rille-pits. However, he took one of my boats — not yet un- 
loaded — with a crew of my best men, and started up towards 
Falmouth. Before I had gott(*n all the material down to the 
river, the enemy fired out* volley, and then left. I pushed the 
bridge to completion, as fast as possible, with the limited number 
of men I had, and when near the oj^posite shore the boat General 
(libbon had taken made its apiK'arance loaded with men, and 

landed them. 

**As soon as tin* bridge was comjdeted, (Jeneral (libbon moved 
across and took the different works heading to the heights above 
Fredericksburg and moved on towards Chancellorsville. On 
Tuesday, May uth, I took up this bridge and moved it to near 
army headquarters, in front of Falmouth. 1 do not know just 
ichat the movements of the balance of the regiment were, except 
that they were at Banks' Ford and built at least two, if not more, 
bridges.'*

present daring that battle. Aside from that, none of our regi- 
ment participated. I find in my diary, that on Tuesday, June 23, 
1863) I was ordered to take seventy-two (72) boats from our oamp, 
near Navy Yard, Washington, D. C, with sufficient material to 
conyert them into a bridge, and to proceed to Edward's Perry. 
I made the boats into tows, took them to Georgetown, D. C, and 
locked them into the Chesapeake and Ohio canal. I left Oeorge- 
town at ten o'clock a. m., June 24, 18G3, and with mules, towed 
the fleet up to Edward's Ferry. I arrived at that point, with 
head of train, at 5 o'clock, a. m., June 25th. Through Captain 
Turnbnll of the U. S. Engineers, I received orders to lay a 
bridge at that point. I took the boats and material from the 
canal, and put them into the river. Three companies of the 
regiment, C, F and I, had preceded me and were awaiting my 
arriyal. Company H, was with the train on the canal; this 
made four companies. Commenced laying the bridge at 12 
o'clock, noon, Thursday, June 25th, completed the same at 2.30 
p. m., of that date. The bridge was 1,320 feet long, with 65 
pontoon boats. During Thursday afternoon, and Friday, the 
First, Third, Fifth, Eleventh and Twelfth Corps crossed the 
bridge, and the Second and Sixth Corps crossed during the night 
of June 2Gth and morning of June 27th. 

'^ Commenced dismantling bridge at 5 o'clock, p. m., June 27thy 
loaded 52 boats and necessary equipage on wagons to go with 
the army, balance of material, together with a large quantity of 
Quartermaster's stores, were loaded in barges, and made up into 
tows, and sent to Washington, in charge of Company H, where 
tbey arrived July 4th. 

^ General Benham came up from Washington with the balance 
o' the regiment, and ordered me, as soon as I had my work 
completed, to follow on, and join the regiment as soon as pos- 
sible, with the three companies, C, F and I. Overtook rear of

THE SABINE PASS EXPEDITION. 

Thb Thrilling Experibngb of Dbtachmbnts from thb Sbybnty- 

Fifth and One Hundred and Sixty-First New 

York Aboard Two Gun-boats on that 

Unfortunate Trip. 

The ultimate purpose of the Sabine Pass expedition was the 
cajpture of the State of Texas. It was designed by General N. P. 
Banks, and the command of the expedition was placed in the 
hands of General William B. Franklin. General Banks expected 
General Franklin to make a landing at Sabine Pass, with the city 
of Houston as the main objeotiye point. Had the expedition been 
successful^ fortifications would have been thrown up, and a line 
of communication and supplies would have been established at 
the mouth of Brazos river until the Union troops could have 
captured Galveston Island .and city. Banks had expected to 
have, within ten days from the landing, 20,000 men at Houston, 
where, strongly fortified, any attack in force could have been re- 
sisted and he would have commanded all the principal communioa- 
tions about Louisiana and Texas. 

On Friday, September 4th, 1863, at 5 o'clock in the afternoon, 
Brigadier-General Godfrey Weitzel left New Orleans with about 
1,000 infantry, one battery of 30-pounder Parfott guns, and one 
20-i)ounder, in four transports. Unfortunately, however, Lieu- 
tenant Commander Frederick Crocker, U. S. N., who was in com- 



70 Annual 'Bbport op the 

maud of the gun-boats Clifton and Sachem, lost his way. Iir- 
stead of the attack being made Monday morning, it was not until 
Tuesday evening, September 8th, that the troops were ready. 
Aboard the Sachem were 25 men detailed from Comipany D, One 
Hundred and Sixty-first New York, under command of Lieutenant 
William W. Lindsay. Aboard the Arizona were Companies A 
and B ; on the Granite City, Company E ; Companies C, F, G, and 
I, under command of Captain Willis E. Craig, were detailed as 
a storming party and were carried on the steamer General Banks;, 
Companies H and K, under command of Lieutenant-Colonel 
William B. Kinsey, were on the steamer N. H. Thomas. 

Abocurd the Clifton, which was the flagship, were two companies 
of the Seventy-fifth New York, G and B, under command of 
Lieutenants Charles H. Cox and William H. Boot, about one hun- 
dred in all. Company B was assigned to duty on the upper deck 
and G on the lower deck. 

When General Franklin announced that his troops were ready 
for action, the long delay had enabled the Confederates to mobil- 
ize a considerable force for resistance. The Clifton took up her 
position in the Texas channel and began to shell the enemy. The 
Sachem started up the Louisiana channel, followed by the Ari- 
zona^ and after grounding slightly, moved off and began to par^ 
tidpate in the action. Half way up to the battery a shot struck 
the Sachem's boiler, silenced her fire and put her out of action. 
The Clifton held to her course, but the Granite City and General 
Banks made no attempt to follow. The Clifton had her wheel- 
rope shot away and before repairs could be made a shot passed 
through her boiler, completely disabling her. She twice caught 
fire. The enemy had no trouble in finding her range and the men 
fell fast. 



Statb Historian. 71 

6ome one hauled down the colors of the Clifton, but Captain 
Crocker ordered them replaced, but within a short time he re- 
alized that he was simply exposing his men to destruction and he 
surrendered his ship. 

The Sachem in the meantime had also surrendered, throwing 
into the hands of the Confederates a full suppily of ordnance 
stores, eighteen heavy guns, and two hundred prisoners, among 
them Lieutenant Commander Crocker, Lieutenant W. W. Lindsay 
of tlie One Hundred and Sixty-first New York, and Lieutenants 
Boot and Cox of the Seventy-fifth New York. Fifty per cent, of 
those who were captured were New York State trooips. Company 
D of the One Hundred and Sixty-first New York wae practically 
wiped out. 

iThe Official Becordfi of the Rebellion contain no report from 
either one of the two New York regiments, the Seventy-fifth or 
the One Hundred and Sixty-first. Fortunately, however, Cap- 
tain William W. Lindsay is now residing at Bath, and from him

From the diary of Lieutenant Frederick Oossum, formerly of 
th(» Seventy-fifth New York Volunteer Infantry, now commander 
of Seward I*ost, at Auburn, N. Y., the following extracts are 
taken, as illustrating the part which was played by the Beyenty- 
fifth in this unfortunate expedition: 

Sept. 4th (18G8). The Thirteenth Army Corps from Grant's 
Army, under General C. C. Washburne, arrived at Algiers; and 
marched in and occupied Brashear City; in the afternoon ours, 
the Second Brigade, with othei* Nineteenth Corps troops^ went 
on board transports at Algiers; and the expedition, numbering 
from 8 to 10,000, with artillery and cavalry, were turned over 
to the command of General Franklin; and in the evening it aet 
sail for Sabine Pass, Texas. Geneml Weitzel and staff, the 
Seventy-fifth New York and Billy Wilson's Zouaves em- 
barked on the steamer Belvidere; it was just evening as the 
boats steamed down the river, passed the Crescent City, whose 
innumerable lights reflected in the river for miles presenting a 
strange and striking scene. 

Sept. 5th, 1863. Daylight found the troops at the mouth of the 
Sabine river. Thence at noon sailed the fleet, consisting of the 
gunboats Clifton, Sachem and Arizona, with a dozen or more of 
river boats and ocean steamers. (Had the Belvidere been allowed 
to run up and land the Seventy-fifth New York, the fort would 
have been captured by 9 a. m.) 

Sept. 6th. Fleet laid to for a short time to enable details of 
Seventy -fifth to be sent aboard the gunboats as marines. Com-

ponies G and B, commanded by Lieutenants Charles H. Oox and 
W. H. Boot, with a few others from the regiment, about 100 in 
all, were sent on board the Clifton, the flagship of Lieutenant 
CommaDder Pred. Crocker. Company B was assigned to duty 
on the iipi)er deck and G on the lower. 

Sept. 7th. Another delay at the mouth of the river looked as 
though some one was trying to give the Johnnies an opportunity 
to blow us out of the water. 

Sept. 8th. Steamed through Sabine Pass, the Clifton being 
ordered up near the Confederate redoubt on reconnaissance. A 
number of shells were tossed into the fort without eliciting any 
show of men or response. The Clifton and Sachem were both 
ordered up the difficult channel to assault the rebel works from 
the upper side; the Arizona was ordered to give battle from 
below, and a force was to be put ashore under the protection of 
the Granite City to attack the redoubt in the rear. The Seventy- 
fifth was assigned to this duty, and with a portion of the One 
Hundred and Sixty-first and One Hundred and Sdxty-fifth 
New York went aboard the General Banks. The Sabine was very 
shallow and the boats made slow progress; the Sachem took the 
lead, followed by the Clifton, the Granite City and the Arizona; 
the first three began shelling the fort, but no response until the 
l>oat8 reached a certain spot which had been marked, when six 
g^ns opened at once; one of the first shots pierced the gunboat's 
^kv, disabling her at once, and causing her captain to run up 
^ie white flag. The Clifton then pushed forward, taking the 
^^^as channel, which lay close to the fort. At first the Johnnies 
^^otB passed over her, but they soon got range; but just as she 
'bached a spot opposite the fort she struck a sand bar with such 
force as to make her fast, the shock being so severe as to knock 
^^^ hands off their feet and imbedding her in the mud so deep that 
^^^ could not back out. The Confederates now got range and 
P^^i*ed down on the deck and sides of the Clifton such a terrific 
^^ of shot and canister, which splintered the bulwarks, shattered 
^^^ machinery, and made awful havoc among the crew and sol- 
i^^TH, So near to shore was the grounded boat that her guns

could not be suflSciently elevated to continue action. The men 
op€»ned a brisk musketry fire, however, with a view of picking off 
the Rebel ^nners; but this could not be long continued as ex- 
posure was certain death. After the engagement had lasted about 
fifteen minutes, and a number of officers, troops and crew had been 
killed or wounded, a 32-pound ball pierced the Clifton's steam- 
chest and terminated all attempts to get afloat; further resistance 
being useless, the colors were struck and the white flag was run 
up, whereupon hostilities ceased. 

About one-half hour after the surrender, a Rebel craft came 
down from above the bend in the river and towed off the Sachem 
as a prize; another boat, called the Roebuck, approached the 
Clifton with a similar intent, but failing to get her afloat she 
took the prisoners aboard and steamed slowly up to Beaumont, 
some forty miles up the river. 

By this engagement the Seventy-fifth loat 92 men, most of 
Companys B and G; 6 were killed. Lieutenant Crocker, com- 
manding the Clifton, was severely wounded and several of his 
officers and crew were killed and wounded. When the fiag waa 
hauled down, a dozen or more men of the Seventy-fifth would 
not surrender and jumx)ed overboard and swam to the other ahore, 
running down the coast, and were picked up by a small boat from 
the Granite City; some of those who jumped were drowned and 
some recaptured. From the deck of the General Banks the 
Seventy-fifth New York had, with eagerness, watched the 
Clifton and Sachem attempt the passage of the fort, expecting 
every minute to be put ashoi^ where it could assault the enemy, 
but with mingled disappointment, mortification and hot rage, it 
beheld the capture of the two boats and their own comrades; with 
these same feelings they contemplated the impracticability of the 
heavy draft Arizona attempting to accomplish the passage. 

But their indignation and anger reached its climax only when, 
instead of landing an infantry force and taking the fort from the 
rear, Franklin signaled the Arizona, Granite City and Banks to 
rejoin the fleet without delay. 



Statb Historian. 75 

Brimful of wrath and dismay, without a single chance to rescue 
our cherished comrades or retrieve the fortunes of the day, the 
men saw this order obeyed. 

If it were possible for anything to hurt Franklin in the estima- 
tion of the troops of this expedition, it was the information soon 
after received that the whole Rebel force did not exceed 170 Con- 
federates in and about the fort. Had Franklin heard the expres- 
sions on his behalf, he would have left the army at once. 

Sept. 9th. Sabine Pass was left by the fleet.

THE LOST COLORS OP THE SEVENTH HEAVY 

ARTILLERY. 

With a Brief Sketch of thb Campaign in which They Wbrb 
Lost — Why Pbtbrsburo was not Captured June 16, 1864. 

On the evening of June 14, 1864, Petersburg, Va., wae oompara^ 
tivelj in a defenceless condition. General Grant was well aware 
of this, and was confident of eapturinig the city within twenty- 
four hours. The Confederate works, which, in appearance, were 
formidable, were manned by only twenty-four hundred troops, 
mostly home guards, and irregulars — old men and young boys. 
These works had been constructed in the spring of 1862, and con- 
sisted of a circle of strong redans or batteries, connected by in- 
fantry parapets, of high profiles, with ditches, at a distance of 
about two miles from the city. The Army of the Potomac had 
reached the James river on June 14th, General Grant having 
consummated his masterly flank movement to the left and out- 
manoeuvred General Lee in a brilliant manner. Grant was con- 
vinced Petersburg could be captured by a coup. Once in posses- 
sion of the Army of the Potomac, Petersburg would have ceased 
to be a factor in the cause of the Confederacy, for the Weldon 
and South Side railways, the two main arteries that supplied the 
Confederate army with reinforcements, supplies and vitality, 
would have been severed. 



80 Annual >Bbport of thb 

If ever an occaBion demanded promptness in decialoii and celer- 
ity in movement, this was one. Yet by a concatenation of inex- 
cusable delays and inexplicable blunders, the prize was dropi^ed 
at the moment it was ready to fall into our hands — ^at a subse- 
quent cost of thousands upon thousands of precious lives and 
millions ux>on millions of dollars. It is within the bounds of 
reason to say that at any previous period of the war, failure to 
capture Petersburg, under similar circumstances, would have 
been followed by a Court of Inquiry. And had any other com- 
manding general than Grant been at the head of the army, an 
investigation would have resulted, and a shining light selected afl 
an example, as was done with Fitz John Porter after second Bull 
Run, McClellan after Antietam, and Franklin after Fredericks- 
burg. 

With his usual perspicacity, Grant had grasped the situation. 
Failure befell him only, when he attempted combination move- 
ments and when he placed reliance unqualifiedly upon others. 

On the morning of June 15th, General William F. (" Baldy ") 
timith, with his Eighteenth Co«rps and part of General Butler's 
command, aggregating 16,100 men, had been ordered by General 
Grant to proceed from Bermuda Hundred to Petersburg, six miles 
distant. At 10 o'clock, on the evening of the 14th, General Meade 
wired General Hancock: 

^* General Butler has been ordered to send to you at Wind-Mill 
Point sixty thousand rations. As soon as these are received and 
issued you will move your corps by the most direct route to 
Petersburg, taking up a position where the City Point railroad 
crosses Harrison's creek at the ei'ossroads indicated on the map 
at this point, and extend your right over the mouth of Harrison's 
credL where we now have a work." 




■A 



State Historian. 81 

Six hoars later or, to be preciae, at 3.50 on the morning of 
the 15th, General Hancock reported that his entire corps, which 
aggregated 28,000 men — except one regiment of heavy artillery 
" for fatigue " — and four batteries of artillery, had crossed the 
James from Wilcox's Landing to Wind-Mill Point — sixteen or 
seTenteen miles from Petersburg. Now the blunders began to 
fail thick and fast. At 7.30 a. m. on the morning of the 15th, 
Ueade, in answer to telegrams from Hancock, which announced 
that his rations had not arrived and that his troops had been 
ready to advance for several hours, ordered Hancock " to move 
immediately to the position assigned him last evening." On the 
heels of this telegram came an erroneous report to Hancock that 
his delayed rations were received. Up to 9.40 nothing had been 
heard of them and Hancock, having announced to Meade that he 
had been deceived in reporting their arrival, at last gave orders 
ior his command to move forward. For some reason that has 
sot been explained, the signal officer failed to communicate the 
order. To add further to a delay that was already criminal and 
was to bring disaster to our aims for mouths to come, Ck)lonel 
Charles H. Morgan, Hancock's chief of staff, an alert, enterpris- 
ing and gifted officer, who carried the same order, boarded a boat 
that ran aground, and it was not until half^past 10 o'clock that 
the column finally got under way. 

Nor was the ill-luck that attended this combination movement 
from its inception, at an end. By some inscrutable oversight, 
either on the i)art of General Grant or General Meade, General 
Hancock had not been notified that Smith was to assault Peters- 
burg and that the iSecond Corps was expected to co-operate. To 
^dd to the general complications, General Barlow, in command of 
the First Division, was misled by the map which the War Depart- 



82 Annual Bbport of thb 

ment had supidied, struck the wrong road, lost his way, and 
failed to join the main body until 3 a. m. on the morning of Jane 
16th, eight or nine hours after the other two divisions reached 
the front. < 

In the meantime, General Smith had been reconn<ritering the 
works before Petersburg from early morning of the 15th, with a. 
view of making an assault. At 5 o'clock that afternoon, he con- 
cluded not to assault in column, but to mass his artillery, fire 
upon a certain redoubt in front of one of his brigades, and then 
attempt to. carry the works with a strong skirmish line. The 
order to that effect was issued, and the troops were formed, only 
for Smith to discover — another link in the chain of blonders — 
that his chief of artillery, without authority, had marched his 
entire outfit to the rear to water horses, thus entailing a further 
delay of two hours. Finally, at 7 o'clock in the evening, after 
many precious hours had been needlessly wasted, Smith's artil- 
lery opened upon the Confederate works, which, to the general 
surprise, made no reply. The Federal skirmish line adyanced, 
encountered a rattling infantry fire, that was easily brushed 
aside, and walked into the works, taking four guns and between 
two hundred and three hundred prisoners. Within two hours 
Smith, with trifling loss, captured seven redans — all armed with 
artillery — and a mile and a half of intrenchments. 

In his report of the operations of the 15th and 16th days o< 
June, 1864, General Hancock explains the delay in not moving for- 
ward from 6.30 a- m. to 10.30 a. m., because of the hitch in fo^ 
warding his rations. His chief of staff. Colonel Moigan, w«s 
ordered to remain with General Bimey and conduct the march 
of the Second Corps. Morgan was furnished with the so-called 
Abbott map, that which had been made in 1S61 by the CkMps of

Engineere of the United States Apmy, and which, for present 
purposes, was absolutely worthless. For instance, the map indi- 
oated the position of Harrison's creek as flowing four miles from 
Petersburg — ^between that place and Oity Point. As a matter of 
fact; Harrison's creek ran inside the enemy's lines and was not 
within mUes of the position laid down on the map. Hancock 
soon discovered the worthlessness of this map and, on the after- 
noon of the 15th, threw it away. The negro guides obtained by 
ColoDel Morgan were ignorant, and uncommunicative; a great 
deal of the information they imparted was misleading. The in- 
habitants of the country were Confederates; when questioned 
they purposely deceived the troops. 

It was not until 5.25 that afternoon that General Hancock 
received from General Grant a dispatch which was addressed to 
(General Gibbon, with instructions to communicate to Hancock 
^d to all division commanders, conveying the information that 
Smith had attacked Petersburg and carried the outer wcK'ks, 
"and may need your assistance." Half an hour later a second 
^Mspatch was delivered to Hancock from General Sonith which 
notified him that General Grant had authorized iSmith to " call 
on you to hurry forward to Petersburg to aid in its capture." 
Snciith further stated, " but to-night is the last night as General 
l^^ is reported crossing at Chaffin's Bluff " — the first intimation 
Sancock received that he was expected to assist in the combina- 
tion movement that had for its object the capture of Petersburg, 
flancock promptly diverted the head of Bimey's Division to a 
country road which led directly toward Petersburg, and the two 
leading divisions, Birney's and Gibbon's, were turned in that 
direction. 



S4: Annual iBbport of thb 

The day was excessively hot, the roads were covered with dast; 
the troops Bu£Fered keenly from heat and lack of water, and many 
of them fell by the wayside from exhaastion. At 6.30 p. m. that 
night, Birney's Division arrived at the Bryant house on Bailey's 
ereek, about one mile in the rear of the position of Hink's 
Division of Smith's Eighteenth Ck)rps. Hancock promptly rode 
forward, and met General Smith, who narrated the operations 
•of the day and pointed out the position of the lines he had 
carried. Hancock rejwrted the arrival of his two divisions and 
placed himself under Smith's orders. He was requested by Smith 
to relieve the Eighteenth CJorps which then occupied the front 
line of works. By the time this relief was accomplished, it 
was 11 o'clock, too late and too dark for any advance operations. 

Every Union general on the ground or in the rear, was con- 
vinced that General Lee would throw great masses of troops into 
the Petersburg works before morning. Smith had alluded to it, 
and Grant's plan to capture the city and its works before Lee 
could bring reinforcements, contemplated the placing the Army 
of the Potomac on the defensive and compelling General Ijee to 
attack our forces in intrenched works. 

Half an hour after midnight, General Hancock sent a dispatch 
to his two division commanders on the ground, Birney and Gib- 
bon, that " if there are any points in your front commanding your 
position, now held by the enemy, the major-general commanding 
directs that they be taken at or before daylight, preferably be- 
fore." The discretion lodged in these instructions was fatal. 
Had Hancock issued a mandatory order to attack at or before 
daylight, the chain of singular and remarkable blunders might 
have been broken. As it was, neither Gibbon or Birney acted 
opon the suggestion. They deferred action until after 7 a. m.,

three hours and more after daylight. Then they advanced to 
recoDDoiter. General Lee, over night, had brought thousands of 
fresh troops on the field, had taken possession of the large re- 
doubts and rifle-pits in front of the Second, Ninth and Eighteenth 
Corps, and strengthened his position at every point. General 
Grant telegraphed Hancock in effect that Lee had been strength- 
ening the Confederate works and saggecited that should Peters- 
burg not fall on the night of the 15th, it would be advisable for 
him and General Smith to take up a defensive position and main- 
tain it until all of the regular forces came up. 

All chance of capturing Petersburg by the Federal troops dis- 
appeared when General Hancock relieved General Smith's troops. 
on the night of the loth. Up to that hour a general assault, at 
any time made by Smith, supported by the two divisions of the 
Second Corps, would have been successful beyond the shadow of 
a doubt. When it is considered that the Second Corps could 
have moved at daylight on the morning of the 15th as readily aa 
at half -past ten, and arrived before Petersburg at one in the after- 
noon as readily as at seven in the evening, the ease with which 
the Confederate works could have been carried in view of all 
the circumstances, will be apparent to the most indifferent 
reader. Hancock properly resented the hostile criticisms that 
vere directed at him for his failure to take Petersburg, and in his. 
characteristic straightforward and honest way, demanded a 
formal investigation. Both General Grant and General Meade, 
however, exonerated him and his command from any blame, and 
Dianifested their confidence in him by placing him in general 
command of all the Union troops before Petersburg on the 16th. 

What had been a live certainty on the 15th inst., was a dead 
impossibility on the 16th. General Grant early on the 16th saw 



8(i Annual Report op the 

that the only way to retrieve the blandera of the 15th waa by 
making a direct assault upon the enemy's works. Accordingly, 
he directed Hancock, on the afternoon of the 16th, to push for- 
ward a reconnoitering force in his front for the purpose of de- 
termining the most favorable point at which to attack the 
enemy's lines. Throughout the day there had been more or less 
infantry firing of a desultory character, accompanied now and 
then by heavy artillery from the redans in front of Birney's 
division. 

All opinions agree that up to 7 o'clock that morning, Birney 
could have seized the redoubts in front of the Avery house that 
had been abandoned up to that hour, but which when he finally 
advanced were found filled with troops. When Meade came up 
in the afternoon, he ordered Hancock to make the aBsault at 6 
o'clock against the Hare house and redoubts 3, 12, 13 and 14. 
Accordingly, Hancock gave orders to his three division com- 
manders, Barlow, Birney and Gibbon, to advance at that hour 
and assault the works. 

THE ASSAULT. 

The first division of the Second Corps, with which this story 
has to do, consisted of about eight thousand men, and waa 
divided into four brigades that were commanded as follows: 
First Brigades Brigadier-General Nelson A. Miles; second, the 
Irish Brigade, Colonel Patrick Kelly of the Eighty-eighth New 
York who was killed in the charge of the 16th; third brigade. 
Colonel Clinton I). MacDougall of the One Hundred and Eleventh 
New York; fourth brigade. Colonel James A. Beaver of the One 
Hundred and Forty-eighth Pennsylvania. Of the twenty-five 
rc^giments or skeletons of regiments that constituted the first 
division, fourt(»en came from the State of New York, seven

from PeoDsylvania, one from Massachusetts, one from Michigan, 
one from New Hampshire, and one from Delaware. 

For the past forty days this division had done the severest kind 
of work, and had been under fire incessantly. Prom the first 
day of the Wilderness Campaign to the present its losses had 
been appalling. For the three days preceding its arrival at the 
James River, it had marched ninety miles — splendid work, in 
view of the rough character of the country through which it 
passed, the broiling sun to which it was exposed, and the keen 
suflferings which it was compelled to endure. 

The corps was slightly handicapped at this particular time 
because of General Hancock's physical condition. The hard 
work he had done since the opening of the campaign, and the 
hours he had spent in the saddle, united with the unbearable 
weather, had resulted in reopening his Gettysburg wound which 
was now causing him the most excruciating agony. Then again, 
Hancock labored under two disadvantages; first in not being ac- 
quainted with the country around Petersburg, and second in 
being deficient in what military men specify as " the topograph- 
ical instinct," and laymen " the bump of locality." While no 
man in the army could handle his forces on the field with more 
skill and dexterity, or determine the weak points of an adver- 
sary's line with greater promptness and certainty, the ability to 
select advantageous positions or to anticipate the judgment of 
the enemy in selecting prominent positions, he never possessed. 
The latitude he had given his subordinates the night before, 
reflected the suffering he was undergoing and the effect that 
that suffering had produced on his mind. 

At 6 o'clock, when the line of battle was formed, Barlow's 
dirision occupied the extreme left of the line. The Ninth Corps 



88 Annual Report of thb 

was reported to be close behind and within supporting distance 
The Irish Brigade was on the right of Oeneral Beaver's Brigade 
which faced the Confederate redans 3 and 12. The Seventh 
New York Heavy Artillery was on the right of the Fourth, 
Beaver's Brigade, the right of their line connecting with the 
left of the Irish Brigade. This regiment was the largest that 
ever left the city of Washington for the front. It was organized 
August 19, 1862, as the One Hundred and Thirteenth New York 
Infantry, and was called " The Albany County Regiment" In 
December, 1862, it was converted into the Seventh Heavy Artil- 
lery and two additional companies were given to it. Prom Sep- 
tember, 1862, to May, 1864, the regiment had been in the defenses 
of Washington. When General Grant called for reinforcements 
after the Wilderness campaign, over ten thousand of the 55,178 
troops that were sent forward, were enlisted in New York State. 
Among them were the following: Second Mounted Rifles, 1,000 
men; Second Heavy Artillery, 1,679; Seventh Heavy Artillery, 
1,835; Eighth Heavy Artillery, 1, 500; Ninth Heavy Artillery, 
1,400; T^nth Heavy Artillery, 1,759. Any one of these regiments 
was in numbers larger than the average brigade of the Army ot 
the Potomac. 

The Seventh Heavy Artillery received its baptismal fire at 
Spottsylvania Court-house May 19, 1864. Here it lost 76 men. 
At North Anna and the Totopotomoy, its losses aggregated 135. 
At Cold Harbor It lost 418, killed, wounded and missing. Here 
it captured a Confederate work and turned its guns upon the 
enemy. In one month's time from the date of the regiment's 
departure from Washington, its losses aggregated 1,191 men, 
nearly two-thirds of its full strength.

The greatest blow ever inflicted npon it was to fall in this 
charge before Petersburg. The regiment went into action di- 
vided into three battalions; companies E,K,L and D, constituted 
the first ; H, B, C and G, the second ; I, F, A, M, the third. Its 
Colonel Lew^is O. Morris, had been killed on the 4th day of June 
before Cold Harbor, and the regiment was now commanded by 
its Lieutenant-Colonel, John Hastings. At 6 o'clock, the whole 
line advanced, General Barlow the division commander leading 
in person. But when a 12-pound shell ploughed through the 
center color guard, the General retired through the opening. 
That one shot killed or mortally wounded the entire guard. 
Acting Adjutant O'Brien reformed the color guard six times 
while crossing the plowed field over which the brigade advanced, 
a distance of from six hundred to seven hundred yards. The 
advance was met by a terrific fire of grape and canister, which 
increased in violence and compelled the Irish Brigade to change 
direction in order to gain the cover of a small ravine. The right 
flank of the Seventh Heavy was thus exposed to a galling, en- 
filading fire of grape and canister, and the right wing of the 
regiment sought refuge in the ravine, or as some of the survivors 
assert, in the ditch of the work which they had been expected to 
capture. 

In the meantime, the supports from the Ninth Corps had failed 
to come up and more or less confusion existed along the lines of 
the two brigades. Colonel Kelly, the commander of the Irish 
Brigade, had been killed and Colonel Beaver of the Fourth Bri- 
gade had been wounded; the command of the brigade thus de- 
volving upon Colonel Hastings and of the regiment upon Major 
E. A. Springsteed. As the regiment was unsupported on either 
right or left flank, and as the enemy was pouring a vicious en- 



90 Annual Report op the 

filading fire into the right flank and from the rear, Oen. Barlow 
gave the order to retire. The men of the right wing, who lay 
huddled together in the ravine, and who either failed to hear 
the order or assumed that they might be able to slip out under 
cover of darkness, remained in this position until about dusk, 
when Lieutenant Francis M. Kelso of the Fortv-fourth Tennessee. 
with seventeen men, emerged from the works and advanced upon 
them. Lieutenant-Colonel David B. McCreary of the One Hun- 
dred and Forty-fifth Pennsylvania, the ranking officer, proceeded 
to surrender the Union troops in the ravine. Three hundred 
and one of the Seventh Heavy Artillery were taken to Peters- 
burg that night. 

When the scattered remnants of the regiment returned to their 
camp that night, it was known that the national colors were lost; 
but the next day they were recovered, having been picked up on 
the field by Bumside's men. No report, however, was made that 
the regiment had lost another flag on this sanguinary field. The 
missing stand of colors had been presented to the regiment by 
Governor Edwin D. Morgan, in recognition of the enterprise and 
energy that were exercised in organizing the regiment under the 
President's call for volunteers, July, 18G2. In fact no evidence 
has ever be(»n found to show that the regiment was aware of the 
fact that the regimental colors were lost. They bore the infantry 
designation of the regiment — " The One Uundred and Thirteenth 
New York ■ ' — and the men who were captui'ed and taken to Peters- 
burg that night gave the aiiUlerj- (h^signatiou of the regiment 
to their captors, who naturally enonjrh were unable to explain to 
what organization the colors actually belonged. When the de- 
structive elT«*cts of the enemy's fin* upon the color guard, the 
heavy hisses which the regiment had sustained in officers and 



State Historian. 91 

men, the general shifting of oflSeers of high rank, and the dark- 
neflfi, united with the utter demoralization that must have existed 
in the rank and file when the regiment reassembled, are taken 
into consideration, a reasonable explanation can be offered for 
the failure to report the loss of this stand of colors. 

At the time when the regiment imagined that all their colors 
were accounted for, the following paragraph appeared in the Rich- 
mond Examiner of the 20th of July, 1864: 

"There were deposited temporarily in this office on Saturday 
two flags taken from the enemy on Friday in the battle of Peters- 
burg by General Wise's brigade. One of these flags that changed 
bearers on that occasion is a large, elegant silk banner, heavily 
fringed, which bears the inscription, * One Hundred and Thir- 
teenth Regiment New York State Volunteers,' and beneath, the 
motto, * Excelsior.' Either face of the banner bears a painting 
illustrative of battle scenes in the Revolutionary war, with the 
figure of General Washington in the foreground. It is the largest 
and most superb regimental flag we ever saw. The silken folds 
are rent in several places by bullet and shell, and the top of the 
staff is shattered by a minie-ball. Splashes of blood here and 
there upon the torn silk suggest a hand-to-hand conflict for the 
possession of the flag, closing with the death of its supporters. 
• * * W^e understand that General Wise has presented the 
Excelsior banner to the State, and that it will be hung up in the 
State library along with the many other kindred trophies of the 
war that now adorn its wall.'^ 

This paragraph api)eared in the report of the (Confederate Gen- 
eral, Bushrod R. Johnson, who explained that the colors were 
captured on Thursday the 16th of June, by his brigade, and were 
delivered into the hands of a Mr. Trent, acting druggist of Poplar 
lAwn hospital, by Corporal L. W. Bush, Company I, Forty-Fourth 
Tennessee regiment, who was wounded and sent to the rear. 



92 Annual Report op the 

Enclosed with General Johnson's rei)ort wa« one fromr Second 
Lieutenant P. M. Kelso, Second company, Porty-Pourth Tennessee 
Infantry, who stated: 

*' The enemy about 5 p. m. made two charges. The flmt was 
repulsed when the second was bearing down upon the extreme 
right, moving right oblique. Myself and seventeen men moved 
into the interval between the right of Porty-Pourth and Battexy 
No. 15, and engaged the enemy, who was rapidly advancing. I 
deployed my men, covering about fifty yards of the interval. ^Hie 
onciuy continued marching until they arrived within fifty yards of 
the work (our intronchments, which I had but recently occupied). 
One of the colors was shot down six times. There was a ravine 
within about fifty yards of our intrenchments in which they laid 
down and commenced waving their handkerchiefs, and I ordered 
my men to cease firing and called upon them to surrender. They 
continued waving their hats and handkerchiefs. I still demanded 
their surrender. I then brought my men to a ready and told the 
enrmy if they did not come in they would be again fired upon. 
Tlu» firing was again commenced and the enemy continued hold* 
ing out, waving handkerchiefs, hats, etc. I then with my men 
niaroluHl out of the works and demanded the surrender, which 
lliey did, and marched them inside of our works." 

THE EFFORTS TO RECOVER THEM. 
Last summer an examination of the tattered battle fla^ on the 
top fiiHir of the oapitol in this city, disclosed the fact that the 
Morgan lolors wero missing. The ConfiHienue reports were in- 
detiniie as to the linal disposition of the colors at Richmond. 
Had tht\v been phued in the i»apitol of thi' Cf>nfederacy, there was 
every possibilitv that iieneral Ord's trix^ps would have recovered 
Them, turned them over to thi» ordnam^e corps of the United 
iSiates army, which in turn would have transmitted them to the 
Adjutani-Generars ortice at Washington. D. C. It was appre- 
hended that the conspicuous Intuit v of these colors niigrht have

attracted the cupidity of some influential southerner, who would 
ha?e used his influence to remove them from the ca^pitol. 

It will be remembered that Richmond was visited by a great 
fire the day of the evacuation by the Confederate troops, April 
3, 1865. The dispatch which Assistant Secretary of War Charles 
A. Dana sent to Secretary of War Stanton, on April 6th, best 
describes the condition of affairs: 

"Your telegram respecting public documents and correspond- 
ence received. I had already directed General (George F.) Shepley 
to have all these papers collected and forwarded to the Depart- 
ment. A great number of mail-bags all ready to be sent out were 
seized at the post-oflSce, and I think were forwarded yesterday 
from Oity Point. The records and papers of the Department and 
of Congress were removed before the evacuation, and during the 
firing the Capitol was ransacked and the documents there were 
scattered. The letter of Lee, which I telegraphed yesterday was 
accidentally picked up by an officer, I do not think that much of 
value will be discovered. I propose to return to Washington at 
once, unless you direct otherwise. I find that Breckinridge left 
h^ only about half an hour before Weitzel got in. The damage 
of the fire was enormous. It burned nearly everything between 
Main street and the river for about three-quarters of a mile. The 
cnstom-house and Spottswood Hotel are the only important 
buildings saved in the burned district. The block opposite the 
Spottswood, including the War Department building, is entirely 
destroyed. ••♦♦#/> 

Throngh the co-operation of Colonel F. C. Ainsworth, U. S. A., 
Chief of the Record and Pension Office, Hon. H. Clay Evans, 
Commissioner of Pensions, and General Marcus J. Wright, for- 
meriy of the Confederate Army, the Commissioner for collecting 
Confederate records for the War Department, it was learned that 
Corporal Bush was killed in September, 1864, and that Lieutenant 



94 Annual 'Report op the 

Kelso was living, a member of the State Legislatare, at Payette- 
ville, Tennessee. 

In answer to a request for information, Oeneral Charles J. 
Anderson, Adjutant-General of the State of Virginia, wrote: 

'' I have made inquiries in different directions and have not been 
able to ascertain if such colors have any existence at present. My 
pt4'8onal recollection of the matter of the capture of the United 
States flags is that from '61 to '64 there were a great number, some 
hundreds, displayed in the library of the Capitol building at 
Richmond. These, it is understood^ were taken down later and 
parked in boxes in the then Confederate War Department (m 
Ninth street. When the city was fired early on the morning <rf 
April 3d, this building was burned, though later in the day. The 
main body of the records that it contained had been previously 
sent off in advance of the retreat of General Lee's army, and 
wt»re captured at Danville and Greensboro, and are now in the 
vaults at the War Department at Washington. What became of 
the flags I do not know. It is possible that they were burned, or 
that the provost-marshal in charge of the detachments of Ord*s 
division on duty in the city, saved from this building, as he 
undoubtedly would have done had he known their whereabouts." 

In the meantime a very interesting letter had been received 
fn>iu Lieutenant Kelso, dated Fayettoville, Tenn. Lieutenant 
Kelso wrote: 

•' You ask for a statement of how I captured, on the 16th day of 
June.lS64.in front of IVtorsburg^wiih only 17 men), three Federal 
or I'uited State* ila^s, with between six hundred and seven hun-

gram* made from my recollection of the groond. Our troops had 
to spread out in single file^ one man about every five 
or aix feet to cover the ground. The regiment that 
I belonged to (Forty-fourth Tennessee) had been changed 
seyeral times that day, and, notwithstanding the thinness 
of our line, we held our position. No Federal troops made 
their appearance in the angle on the right of our regiment till 
late in the evening. Ck)lonel John F. Fulton discovered that a 
force of Federals was moving on the vacant angle on hifi right, 
came over hastily to me and ordered me to take my company to 
the right quickly, deploy it so as to occupy the vacant space and 
to hold the position or die in the ditches. By the time my men 
were deployed the Federal line was close to our ditches. The first 
Are from my men caused some confusion in the Federal line. They 
fell back a few steps and lay down. We continued to fire on them 
and as they seemed to be huddled, or " hunched " together, must 
have been very destructive. In a very short time I saw them stick- 
ing np hats and handkerchiefs. I ordered ''Cease firing," got up on 
the ditches and halloed to them to come in. I could hear them 
talking, and some of the oflScers were cursing the men and trying 
to get them to fight. By this time it was sundown. I noticed 
another line some distance in their rear that seemed to be moving 
in the direction of us. So I knew if we captured our prize we 
woiQld have to do it quickly. I called for volunteers to go with me 
to bring in the Federals. All my men followed except two; 
one of them received a fatal shot and was lying there dead; the 
other, Corporal Burt, was wounded. We went out in Indian file. 
We kept some distance to our left of the Federals. As soon as 
we started we motioned them to come toward our ditches. They 
finally started. We filed in behind them as soon as they were 
separated from their guns. As soon as, or just before, they got to 
our ditches, I ran to the front and told them to file to the left and 
continue up the works till they came to some of our men who 
would escort them to the rear. I then ordered my men to get to 
their positions and be ready for the advancing column. But it 
^d not come, and in a few minutes it was dark. As the prisoners

passed in I secured one of the flags. One of my men near me took 
another. I gave these two to Corporal Bush and told him to take 
them to the hospital. The third flag was handed to me after dark 
by one of my men. I gave this one to Lieutenant Speet to take 
to Colonel Fulton's headquarters. I could not leave my positioii 
for we were expecting another attack every moment. The regi- 
ment was resisting an attack at the same time I was. No troops 
could fire on the Federals in my front, except the seventeen men 
I had charge of, on account of the ridge or high ground. Battery 
15 could not for the same reason. Battery 14 could have done so, 
but there was no cannon in this fort. It was entirely vacant. I 
have endeavored to explain this capture in my blunt way, so I 
hope you may understand it. Some of the men that were with 
me on that occasion are still living. One lives near me; his name 
is G. W. D. Parton. I talked this over with him yesterday. I 
showed him this diagram; he said it was correct. I did not have 
time to count the prisoners, but am satisfied there were six hun- 
dred or seven hundred of them, some of my men say there were at 
least eight hundred. I had command of Company B, Forty-fourth 
Tennessee Regiment; my captain was sick. I was just twenty 
years old." 

In October, 1897, the welcome and satisfactory information was 
received that the lost colors were boxed up in the War Depart- 
ment at Washington, D. C, having been recovered by the Ord- 
nance Department the day Richmond was evacuated by the Con- 
federates, April 3d, 1865. Accordingly, a measure was introduced 
in the House in December, by Mr. Southwick> the representative 
of the Albany district, and later in the Senate, by Senator Piatt, 
of New York, authorizing the War Department to return these 
colors to the State of New York.* 



* Since this report has gone to press, the resolution to restore the colors to the Statfe of New 
York haa passed both branches of Oongreps and been siRned by Preside t McKinlej. In ooa- 
fonnity with that act, the colors were received by Qor. Black at the EzecutiTe Chamber, 
Albany, August 10, 1897, and were transferred at once to Adjutant-General TUIioyhasI, who 
is the custodian of all Records of the War of the Rebellion of the State of New York.— Stati

In the Official Records of the Rebellion Lienteiiant-Ck>lonel 
James A. Colrin makes the following report of the One Hundred 
and Sixty-ninth New York Infantry at the assault on Fort Fisher, 
January 15, 1865 : 

''The undersigned has the honor to report that upon the open- 
ing of the engagement of 15th instant Col. Alonzo Alden waB 
in command of the regiment, but on reaching the enemy's works 
assumed command of the brigade, Colonel Louis Bell being 
wounded. The undersigned then took command of the regiment. 

" It would seem almost invidious to make any sx)ecial mention 
0^ oflQcers and men, when all did their duty with unpaiulleled 
gallantry and zeal. The undersigned can bear testimony that 
^^ery officer led his men, and the men vied with each other to 
attain the front. 

"Colonel Alonzo Alden was distinguished for his accustomed 
coolness and bravery. 

"Major J. (Joseph) H. Allen was shot through the arm and 
^% but persisted in remaining with the command. 

"Captains Daniel Ferguson, James H. Dunn, Charles D. 
Merrell, J. (Jonas) H. Warren, and E. (Emory) W. Church were 
distinguished for their coolness and gallantry. 

" Lieutenants J. (James) H. Straight, wounded, Michael Ryan, 
killed, Michael Russell, wounded, all in command of companies,

were the right men in the right places. After the death of 
Lieutenant Ryan, Lieutenant J. (John) B. Foote assumed com- 
mand of his company and led it gallantly. 

" Lieutenant Eugene Van Santvoord also deserves mention. 

" Lieutenant E. (Erastus) R. Mosher was hit by a spent ball on 
the 13th instant. He went into action on the 15th, being obUged 
to use a cane; he hopped into the fight leading his men. 

"Other oflScers distinguished themselves; indeed, aU deserve

Colvin with a request that if the list were still in his possession, 
to forward it. Colonel Colvin was unable to comply with the 
request. Through the Hon. L. E. GriflSth of Troy, the matter was 
brought to the attention of General Alonzo Alden, who promptly 
furnished this office with the missing part of the report, which 
reads as follows:

THE LAST FIGHT IN TENNESSEE. 

The Eleventh New York Cavalry Winds up the Struggle 

AT Germantown, April 18, 1865. 

Lieutenant John H. Milla of Company D, Eleventh New York 
Cavalry, now living at Canton, N. Y.^ has furnished this office 
with a eopj of the report of the last fight of the War in the State 
of Tennessee, at Germantown, April 18th, 1865, in which a detach- 
ment from Troops E, G, L and M, of the Eleventh New York 
Cavalry, took part: 

The last fight of the War, in Tennessee, occurred at Gferman- 
\own on the 18th of April, 1865. At that time the mounted 
portion of the Eleventh New York Cavalry lay at Germantown, 
some fifteen miles from Memphis & Charleston railroad, engaged 
in picket and patrol duty; Major George W. Smith was in com- 
mand of the battalion. Lieutenant John H. Mills, of D Com- 
pany, in command of a detachment, composed of men from Com- 
panies E, G, L and M, was^ on the 18th of April, 1865, patroling 
the railroad from Colliersville to Germantown. The detachment 
on that day numbered eighteen men. Application had been 
made by Lieutenant Mills, at Headquarters, a short time pre- 
vious, for a larger detail, but it was not furnished, Colonel Davis, 
of the Twelfth Illinois Cavalry, who was in command, not think- 
ing the service dangerous. On the morning of the 18th, when 
within about three miles from Colliersville, Lieutenant Mills was 
attacked by a company or squadron of Confederate cavalry or 
bughwackers, numbering, as was afterward ascertained, 85 men, 
ander command of Colonel Ford or Foote, called " Club Foot 
Ford." As the patrol moved along parallel with the railroad the 



106 Annual Repokt of the State IIistobian. 

Confederates dashed out from a ei*08s road and the timber ou the 
left, almost entirely surrounding the little detachment, and at 
once opened fire. Privates Kip, Miller, Cronk, Mills, Reynolds 
and another, name not remembered, were killed, and Sergeant 
Coonrod, of Q, mortally wounded at the first fire. Private Cun- 
nington was badly wounded, ixneiving three gun shot wounds. 
Lieut Mills was wounded in the hand, horse was struck and be- 
came unraanageabh*. The fighting was fierce and indiscriminate. 
The detachment was ambuscaded and taJien by surprise and, 
though greatly outnumbered, the best defense possible wa« made. 
The remainder of the detachment cut their way through to Ger- 
mantown, but few of our boys escaped. As a result of the 
morning's work (there) were six killed, two badly wounded and 
seven captured. 

Two men and Lieut. Mills cut their way through. The loss of 
the Guerilhis is not known. The command was taken entirely by 
surprise, as it was hardly exi>ected that at that time in Ten- 
nessee, within fifteen miles of Menii)lus, it was p(«jsible that the 
Confederates were not aware that tlit* War was substantially over. 
It is believed that that name of the man who was in command of 
these bushwackers was Captain Clinton Fort, Comjiany G, C. S. 
Army; see i)age 8(M>, Vol. XLIX, Scrit^s I, Part H, Serial No. 104 
of the lU^bellion Records, letter of ( '. C. Washburn, Major-General. 
This alTair is believed to have Iummi the last in which blood was 
shed in the conflict in Tennessee. The ni<»n killed belonged to 1> 
Company, with tht* exception of Sergeant ( -oonrod, who was of 
Company G. A report of this atlair was made, but so far as the 
writer has been able to learn, the* men composing this detachment 
of Guerillas were never more fully id(*ntifi(Hl; nor do<»s a report of 
the affair, as transmitted to Head^iuarters by Lieutenant MillB, 

appear in the Rebellion Records.

FROM WAUHATCHIE TO THE CAPTURE OF SAVANNAH. 

Ax Interesting Narrative from the Diary op Charles Van 
Wagoner, late of the One Hundred and Forty- 
first New York Infantry. 

Of the many interesting contributions received by this office 
the diary of Mr. Van Wagoner stands conspicuous. In spite of 
the vicissitudes, the hardships, the privations through which 
he and his regiment passed, he seems to have been able to jot 
down daily occurrences, with a fidelity and accuracy that are 
commended by survivors of his regiment who have perused his 
record. 

It will be remembered that after the Chiekamauga campaign, 
when Grant's army, cooped up in Chattanooga, was on the point 
of starvation, the Eleventh and Twelfth Coi*ps were sent from 
the Army of the Potomac to re-enforce the Army of the Cumber- 
land. Mr. Van Wagoner's diary begins October 2d, 1863, the 
day of arrival of the Eleventh Corps at Bridgeport, Ala. His 
narrative includes the battle of Wauhatchie, Lookout Mountain, 
Missionary Ridge, the toilsome and discouraging march to Knox- 
ville and the return to Chattanooga in the depth of winter, the 
Atlantic Campaign, the March to the Sea, the North Carolina 
Campaign, and closes with the grand review at Washington. 
When the Eleventh and Twelfth Corps were consolidated and 
formed into the Twentieth Army Corps, the One Hundred and 
Forty-first New York was attached to the First Brigade, First 
Division. 




110 Annual Bbpobt of thb 

LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN, WAUHATOHIE, MIBSIONAK 
BIDGE AND EINOXVILLE CAMPAIGN. 

The Eleventh Corpe arrived from the Army of the Potomac j 
encamped at Bridgeport, Ala., October 2d, 1868. Nothing bnt 
nsnal routine of camp life for the next eight days. The railn 
bridge at this point has been burned. 

Oct. 10th. Our brigade, Second Brigade, Third Divisi 
Eleventh Army Corps, was sent to Stephenson, Ala., as 
was feared an attempt would be made to blow up the r 
road tunnel. After making a reconnoissance and discoi 
ing nothing, returned to Stephenson and boarded a tn 
laden with corn for the use of the army horses at Brid 
port. The grade to the latter place being very steep, i 
the brakes being poor, all control of the train was lost fo 
time, and it looked very much as if we would all be dashed o 
the high embankment at Bridgeport. But at the last mile, 
brakes began to take hold and the train was brought to a sta 
still at BridgoiK)rt and the One Hundred and Forty-first di» 
barked, pretty well scared, but none the worse for their peril

a detail for a I'ecannoissaiK'o wa» made from the One Hundred 
and Fortv-first, under command of Major (\ W. Clanharty, and 
went beyond the picket lines a short distance, when they were 
abruptly halted by some one. The Major, being a great tactician, 
wanted everything done right, so he hallooes out, ** Why don't 
von challenge us right? '' supposing he was takling to one of our 
own pickets. The fellow answered back, ** How should I do it? " 
"Say Halt, advance one and give the countersign! '- says Clan- 
harty. The picket repeated the words as he (Clanharty) in- 
structed him, and a man by the name of Wellington C. Hurd, of 
Company " B," was sent forward and (piickly taken prisoner, and 
then the Major became aware that he had bi»en teaching a rebel 
how to do picket duty. The Confederate's now opened fire, and 
our men i-eturning the fire, and slowly falling back, the Major 
occasionally ordering Lieutenant Kccles, who was more to the left 
of the line of skirmishers, " Hold your position, Eccles, at all 
hazards,-' which the (memy would catch on to and repeat. The 
firing roused the sleeping camps below and gave thom time to 
prepare themselves, and it was lucky too that they did, for Long- 
street now came down off from the mountain and made a fierce 
assault on Geary's Division at Wauhatchie. The battle lasted 
about thr(K* hours and until aftcT midnight In^fore they were re- 
pulsed. The One Hundred and Forty-first was among tlie troops 
sent to Geary's support. Their loss was 1 killed, 1 wounded and 
1 taken prisoner. But for the reconnoissance sent out that night 
from the One Hundred and Fortv-first, Geary would undoubtedlv 
have been surprised, and fhe result hard to tell. 

Oct. 29th. The One Hundred and Forty-first occupied a 
ridge nc*iir Lookout Mountain. During the afternoon, head- 
quarter wagons from ih'idgejwrt arrived, and were shelled 
from the mountain as they crossed an opening in the woods, 
but came through all right. Al>out this time, a shower of 
bullets came whistling over our heads, but did no harm. 
We were ordered to fall in and marched about two miles 
out on the Kelly's Ferry road, and encamped at the right 
of the road in a heavy oak woods, where we lay until November 




112 Annual Report op the 

23d, the time being occupied in repairing roads and fixing np 
quarters, which were constructed by splitting out plank from 
the oak trees, notching them together, and potting our tents 
on this rough cabin for a roof. They were crude, but very concft.- 
fortable. 

Nov. 22d. We fell in about 3 p. m. in light marching order, 
and marched toward Chattanooga, leaving our camp in charge 
of the sick, etc^ who were excused by the surgeons. We crossed 
the Tenn(?8see at Brown's Ferry. From the peculiar course o^ 
the river at Moccasin Bend it was necessary to cross twice iiB- 
order to reach Cluittanooga, which we did shortly after dark^ 
and bivouacked a short distance from Fort Wood, on some higb- 
ground facing Missionary Ridge. The camp fires of Bragg's> 
army were twinkling and glimmering all along the ridge, and 
the eniMiiy could plainly be seen as they moved about among their 
fires. 

Nov. 2.*M. Dawned cold and cloudy, and the air was raw. 
After we had eat<'n our breakfast we surveyed the situation. 
The whole side of the ridge facing us was covered with the quar- 
ters of the enemy. Just in front of us, a short distance, was the 
railroad; on on(» side of it, our pickets; on the other side, the 
enemy's; n(»ith(*r side was tiring at the other. Aids and order- 
lies wen* seen ricliiij*; in every direction, and it was evident to the 
rank and (lie ** that soiiu'tliing was going to happen." Some- 
wluMe in th(? neighboilicKid of 2 p. m.. we saw General Orant on 
a platform in a tree, occupied In' the Signal Corps in Fort Wood. 
IMt'scutly th(* troops lK*»:;an to march out from their camps, and 
as they cain(* nut, n^jjjiincnt after rejijiment, brigade after brigade, 
with their colors llyinjr. they made a grand and imposing ap- 
pearance. \Ui{ foi* till* stretcher bearer's taking position just m 
rear of them, one inip;ht have thought that a review was to take 
plact^and I have since heard that's just what the enemy did think. 
When the line was thus completed, one of the 64-pounders in 
Fort Wood let go a shot nt tlu* t^ntMny's camp, followed by another 
and anotluM', and this b(»ing the signal for the **Ball to open," our 
pickets tired into the encMuy's, who returned the tire and hastily 
retreated, followe<l eloHely by the line of battle, which soon dis- 
pptMUHMl into the woods. Th(* rattle of musketry now became 



State Histouian. 113 

one general roar, and the wounded now began to come to the 
rear; that is, all who could help themselves. The position of 
the One Hundred and Forty-first at this time was in rear 
of the centre, in second line, in support of first line of 
battle, thus giving them an excellent opportunity to witness 
the opening of this engagement. Just before dark we were 
moved to the left, and then forward to near Orchard Knob 
and more in front of Fort Wood. The enemy's tents had 
nearly all disappeared. We moved up near the first line 
and laid down in line of battle; many balls go humming 
about our heads. As we were in the woods now, our opportuni- 
ties to observe were not as good as at the opening of the battle. 
Orchard Knob had been captured during the afternoon; we lay 
in line of battle all night, the firing having died down to picket 
firing. 

Nov. 24th. A drizzling rain during the forenoon. No fighting 
on this part of the line. We are marched across Citico creek, and 
op the river to the left of Sherman's lines. During the early part 
of the afternoon we hear Hooker's guns firing onto the enemy on 
the side of Ix)okout, and presently we can see the lines fighting for 
a time, and then a mist or fog, together with the smoke from the 
masketr}' and artillery, settled about half way down the moun- 
tain, obscuring the contestants from our view for a time, and 
then, after a while, they could be seen fighting far up the moun- 
tain, above these clouds. This probably is what gave the en- 
gagement the name of " The Battle above the Clouds." The roar 
of cannon and din of musketry was loud and incessant until dark, 
when it died down to skirmish or picket firing. As we paced our 
beats through the night, we watched the flashes of these pickets 
firing at one another, and wondered how the tide of battle was 
going. 

^'ov. 25th. The day dawned bright and clear, and as the sun 

came up over Lookout mountain, it revealed the Stars and 

Stripes, floating to the breeze from her loftiest peak, and 

then went up simultaneously, from every throat of that vast 

army about Chattanooga, a glad hurrah ! Cheer after cheer rent

the air^ for all knew then that '^ Fighting Joe Hooker " had ivon 
the battle that was to make him famous, in all the ageB to come, 
as the Hero of Lookout mountain — "The Battle above the 
Clouds." We now turned our attention to the crest of Mission- 
ary Ridge, whore vast numbers of Confederate troops seemed to 
be massing in Thomas' front. About 10 or 11 a. m., the fighting 
commenced again, with Sherman on the left, Thomas in the 
centre, while Tlooker came in on tlir right, by way of Ro«L8viIIe. 
The One Hundred and Forty-first was again in second line and 
was moved uj) in a piece of woods close* to the first line. The 
lighting as we could hear it, and what we could see of it, was 
terrific at times. During tlu* afternoon we constructed good 
works, but by the middle or Iatt<'r ]»art of the afternoon, the 
enemy was routed and retreating toward Ringold, and thus 
<*nded the three* days at (Miattan<»oga. 

Nov. LMJtli. W(^ move out of our camp and with the rest of 
the army an* following on Hragg's heels. During the afternoon 
we pass through (Miickamauga — the station and a lot of Con- 
federate commissary stores having be(»n lired to ktM*p them from 
falling into our hands. Tents wiMe left standing in some of the 
( 'onfed<*rate camps, so hiirrirdly had lliey retreated. The roads 
were strewn with brokiMi caissons. nnisk(*tsand ammunition, and 
pIay<*d-out wagons, the wagons in every instance having the 
s]>okes cut to render them nst*h»ss. As I/ongstrcH.4 had Burnside 
besieged at Kiioxvill<\ and tlu» way was now open to send the 
much needed relief, accordingly on November 27th the One 
Hundred and Forty-first was among th(» troops that started 
for that ])oiiit, passing through (Jraysville, Cleveland, Char- 
leston, Mouse ('reek, Sweetwater, Ath(»ns and to Loudon. 
The day before reaching Loudon, the enemy's cavalry was 
sighted, but a few shells from one of our batteries soon 
dispersed them, and next morning, just before daylight, we 
entered the place, but found it nearly deserted. There were 
a few Confederate sick thc^re. The lown was about destitute 
of provisions, the railroad bridge had l>een burned, and a large 
amount of equipments, for both infantry and cavalry, thrown

into the river. On the opposite bank were some nice barracks, 
which had been erected and occupied by Burnside's troops before 
falling back on Knoxville. We spent the day hunting the town 
over for something eatable or wearable, as we were quite destitute 
of both, not having any means of procuring anything to eat except 
what we foraged from the country as we went along, and it had 
been so over run with troops there was but little to forage. A 
little com meal, or musty wheat flour, or perhaps a cow or stray 
pig that had been missed, or was too jwor for the enemy to take, 
was about all there was to be had; and not being able to obtain 
clothing before leaving our camps at Chattanooga, on account of 
the limited means of transportation, our shoes and our trousers 
were giving out, and no help for it but to grin and bear it. We 
lay at Loudon two days and one night, then marched up the river 
Bome 5 or 6 miles, to where the Pioneers had constructed the 
most unique bridge it has ever been the fortune of the writer to 
see, for an army to cross the river on. It was made by taking all 
the old wagons that could be found in that country, anchoring 
them up and down the stream, and then laying boards and planks 
from one wagon to another. And on this novel bridge the troops 
crossed. When Company " A " of the One Hundred and Forty- 
first reached the opposite bank, they halted until the balance of 
the regiment closed up. Henry Miller, a member of that eom- 
panv,accidentally discharged his gun, the ball passing up through 
his head, killing him instantly. During the afternoon we pass 
through Unita, a Quaker settlement, and encamp about nine 
miles from Knoxville. This was about December 5th. 

Dec 6th. We do not march, and it is soon rumored that Long- 
street, knowing of our coming, had raised the siege and departed 
and that we were to return to Chattanooga, which proved true. 

Dec. 7th. We started on the return march, and passed 
through the same places we did coming. If provisions had been 
scarce before, they were doubly so now; if our suffering from 
^'ant of clothing, sickness, etc., had been great, it was increased 
tenfold now. It was December 16th and we had made a good 
march, those who were about barefooted having the privilege of

picking their way. We went into camp as we suppooed for tl 
night. The clouds had looked threatening all day, indicatii 
that a heavy storm was at hand. The troops had their tents n 
fires kindled, and were preparing their meagre suiyper^ when y 
received ordei^ from General Hi>ward to make 15 miles farther, i 
where he had established his headquarters. The boys fell in ai 
grumbled. The storm that had been threatening all day no 
burst ux>on us in all its fury; the rain came down in torrents, tl 
darkness was intense; except for the flashes of lightning now ai 
then the men could hardly see their way over the rough road 
Some cui*sed, others sung, while still others swore they would ( 
no farther that night, when no enemy was pursuing nor being pn 
sued, so they left the ranks and found shelter wherever the 
could. The majority of us plodded <along through the sleet ai 
rain until about 2 or 3 o'clock in the morning, when tired natoj 
could stand no more, and the One Hundred and Forty-first settle 
down in an old cornfield. Home rolled themselves up in the 
blankets and tried to sleep, only to awaken in a short time i 
find their blankets frozen stilf and themselves so cold they coul 
scarcely movc^; while others gathered brush and made fires, br 
the brush was so wet, that the fires gave out but little hea 
And so we waited and watched for daylight to come. 

Dec. 17th. At 6 a. m. we move on; we had no breakfast b 
cause we had nothing but empty haversacks. So we plodd< 
along, and in the afternoon marched through the railroad tunn< 
under Missionary Ridge, and around the outskirts of Chattanoog 
and over a new macadamized road that had been built aroui 
the base of Lookout mountain during our absence, and in a sh« 
time were in our old quarters in Lookout valley, having bee 
absent since November 22d, in which time we had marched 25 
miles under Uie most diilicult circumstances. No m,ember ( 
the One Hundred and Fortv-first can ever, while life last 
obliterate from his memoi*}' the sufl^ering of that last night 
march — half starved and poorly clad as they were. The stra 
glers were coming in for a week after, and much siekne 
prevailed, and the seeds of disease, planted on the Kno

yille march, are bearing fruit unto this day. Our quarters 
were rode and humble, but they looked like palaces to us, 
after the rough usage we had been subject to. Rations 
were still limited, slb the most of them came by boat, and then 
hauled 8 or 9 miles from Kelly's Ferry ; and the carrying capacity 
of these river boats was very limited indeed. It was a very com- 
mon sight, the next two or three weeks, to see men around camp 
in their stocking feet, because they had no shoes, or without 
trousers, because there were none to be had, a pair of drawers 
doing duty for those useful garments. This was the state of 
affairs until the railroad was opened, and then clothing and 
rations were soon forthcoming. 

1864. Jan. 25th. We broke camp and marched 20 miles to 
Shell Mound. We stay at Shell Mound Station until March 11th, 
^^hen we moved our camp about one mile up into a ravine known 
3.8 Nick-a-Jaek Cove. We had plenty to eat and wear here and 
"tie duty consisted of drills, patrol, making and repairing roads, 
until May 3d, when, having been assigned some time previous 
"to the Twentieth Army Corps, on the date mentioned we joined 
t:lie First Brigade, First Division, at Shell Mound and marched 
'to Whiteside. 

May 3d. Marched toward Chattanooga, reaching Wauhatchie 
«.bout noon, and the valley between Lookout Mountain and Mis- 
^onary Ridge in the afternoon, and where we encamped for the 
xiight. 

May 4th. Marching through a portion of the battlefield of 

Chiekamauga, and at nigh.t we encamp on the banks of Chicka- 

^xiauga creek. There is nothing of interest until May 15th. We 

^^xme along nearly every day, passing through Snake Creek Gap, 

^JJd on the 14th we are feeling for the enemy nearly all day and 

conforming our lines to theirs, and at night find ourselves on a 

'hooded ridge in line of battle, where we had come hurriedly to 

the support of the Fourteenth Army Corps. But our Third 

Brigade had helped them out of their trouble by the time we 

arrived. We lay with our harness on all night in line of battle. 

May 15th. Battle of Reaaca, an account of which you already

" THE MARCH TO THE SEA." 



1804. Nov. 15th. The One Hundred and Forty-flpst New York 
Volunteers, under command of Captain William Merrill of Com- 
pany '*D," brigade under command of Colonel (James L.) Self- 
ridge, Forty-sixth Pennsylvania Volunteers, left the smoking and 
ruined city of Atlanta and marched out, in an easterly direction 
toward Decatur, Ga., a small village about six miles from At- 
lanta on the Augusta railroad. Reached Decatur about noon 
and halted for dinner. In the afternoon the march was resumed* 
encamped that night near Stone Mountain. 

Nov. IGth. Troops on the march at an early hoar. The One 
Hundi-ed and Forty-lirst strung out in two ranks along the 
Wagon Train. Crossed the Yellow river at a late hour, mached 
a short distance and went into camp. 

Nov. 17th. One Hundred and Forty-first occupy same position 
on the march as the day before (guarding Wagon Train), which 
the boys begin to find tedious and not at all (o their liking, as 
some wagon was continually breaking down or would get stuck 
in mud holes, the^reby blocking everything behind them and caus- 
ing the mule-drivers to' nnhmd llieir vocabulary of cuss words 
at the long-eanMl animals hiiuling the afon^said wagoms. But 
it was not considered any sin in the Army for a mule driver to 
swear; it was rousid(»red a n<»cessary evil. Crossed Big Haines 
(reek late in tin* afternoon. Went into camp just before the 
midnight hour. 

Nov. 18th. Again guarding Wagon Trains. If a wagon breaks 
down it is burned to i>rev<*nt it doing the enemy any good in the 
future. If a mule gives out, ho, is shot, for the same reai^on. 
The boys are bi^ginning to utilize the time when the Wagon Train

lialteil for diimer just beyond the viHage. March resumed in 
an hour, making camp about 11 p. m. 

Nov. 19th. Again on the mtarch. This country gets better, 
and provisions for both man and beast more plentiful as we 
advance. The potato holes are just bursting, they are so full, 
and the poultry and pigs are just waiting for us to come and 
rescue them from tlie Confederacy. This diet beats hard-tack 
and sowbelly all to pieces, but these citizens will have a hard time 
to get enough to eat after we have pai?«ed. We pass tlirough 
Madison, Ga., about 4 p. m. It is much the finest place we've 
seen on this march. There are many fine residences, the door- 
yards decorated with the most luxurious shrubbery. The whole 
colored jKypulation seems to have turned out to see the Army pass 
and a good share of thein are following it away, they know not 
^"here, but its " the Day of Jubilee " to them, and with all their 
earthly effects packed into a bundle, pail or washtub, and nicely 
balanced on the head, they follow '* Sherman's Bummers " away. 
There were old Pomps, young Pomps, She Pomps and pickanin- 
nies, and as they trudge along they form a grotesque procession 
and one that should be S(M^n to be aii)i)reciated. Encamp about 
four miles beyond Madison. 

Nov. 20th. The One Hundred and Forty-first are rear 
guard of the Twentieth Army Corps. Do not leave our 
camp until 1 p. m. This means a march for us that will 
reach well into the night. Commenced raining about 4 p. m.; 
rained very hard all night. During the evening a two-wheeled ox 
cart containing young darkies, drawn by an ox hitched in the fills, 
and led by an old colored man, became stuck in a creek; the boys 
polled the pin and dumi^ed the young darkies in the creek, which 
was Hot deep. It afforded them great amusement to see the old 
Aunties fish the young mokes out of the stream. Went into camp 
about midnight. 

^'ov. 21st. We are on the move again at 7 a. m. The roads are 
heavy and muddy from yesterday's rain, and travel is extremely 
difficult. We are living on the fat of the land; somebody stop ns 



120 Annual Report of the 

or we will burst with turkey and sweet potatoes. Made camp 
about 10 p. m. 

Nov. 22iid. It froze the mud a little last night, making travel 
a little better to-day. Details are at work destroying the railroad 
as we move along. Crossed the little river on pontoons to-day. 
The railroad bridge was burned, making a grand conflagration. 
This is a magnificent farming country, and we pass many flne 
residences. We reach and pass through Milledgeville dnring the 
afternoon; crossed the Oconee river and encamped on a wooded 
knoll at the right of the road. It is rumored that many of the 
citizens have gone out into the country to visit their relatives 
until we pass by. 

Nov. 23rd. Very frosty; it froze quite hard during the night 
We do not march to-day, and the men are helping themselves to 
anything they want. Many messes are eating their noonday meal 
from Que(»nsware, spread out on nice white tablecloths, which 
they have borrowed for the occasion from the families who sad- 
denly had business out of town when they heard we were coming, 
and which Queensware will doubtless be found by its owners (If 
it ever is) just where the boys left it previous to taking their 
departure from the city. In the afternoon a detail from 
the One Hundrc^d and P^)rty-lirst, accompanied by others, 
went out and destroved niaiiv mil(»s of railroad. This was 
done by upsetting long sections of it, ties, stringers and 
rails, then knock them aj^art, pile up ties and stringers, 
lay the rails on top of the heaj», th(»n fire the heap. When the 
rails were heated in the middle, the ends being cold, they were 
easilv bent out of all shai;e for use on a railroad until introduced 
to a rolling mill. But our friends on the other side have no time 
for that just now. The railroad bridge across the Oconee is 
burned this evening; besides large fires from public buildings and 
stores illuminate the country for miles around. Many of the boys 
are displaying Georgia bonds and Confederate money, which they 
have purloined from some building in their wanderings to-day, the 
purchasing pow(»r of which is fast departing. 



State Historian. 12i 

Nov. 24th. The mareh resumed at 5 a. m. The roads are frozen 
and the air frosty; everything goes along smoothly to-day. One 
of Company " C's " men was about to take the last hog a man had 
to-day, when he protested so strongly that the " bummer " com- 
promised with him by offering a flOO Confederate bill, which 
pleased him, for he accepted it readily, remarking that he could 
boy 5 or 6 hogs for that money back in the country. 

Nov. 25th. Again on the march, shortly after daylight. About 
10 a. m. come to a stream that will have to be bridged. About 
2 p. m. crossed the stream and are again on the move. (The 
stream was called Buffalo creek.) After marching 5 or 6 miles, 
the head of the column was fired upon by some Confederate cav- 
alry. A skirmish line is thrown out to develop their position; 
pickets are posted and the troops go into camp for the night. 
Borne firing o-n the picket line during the night. This is the first 
opposition since leaving Atlanta. 

Xov. 26th. Move out of camp about 9 a. m. There is quite 
brisk firing at the head of column, but we move along with very 
little delay, the enemy falling back as our troops advance. About 
noon we enter and halt for dinner at the village of Sandersville. 
Our enemy consists of some cavalry and a few citizens calling 
themselves " The Home Guard of Sandersville," and who were 
nearly all captured and " marched to the Rea,'' with Sherman's 
l>ammers, as prisoners. Marched to and encamped for the night 
at Tennile Station. 

Nov. 27. The march resumed at daylight. First Brigade, 

First Division, Twentieth Army Corps, on the lead; One 

Hundred and Forty-first New York at the head of column; 

Company " C " about one-quarter of a mile in advance with 

the Corps scouts. This is a gra^d country, overfiowing with 

good pigs, poultry and sweet potatoes. Many a good mule 

and horse is also being confisctated these days. The wagon 

train mules are daily being recruited; also the camp negroes, 

every . three or four privates having a servant, which they 

bave hired for from |10 to |12 per month. It makes but 

little difference to the private what wages he's agreed to 



122 Annual 'Rei»ort of the 

pay; he won't do it. But when the march is ended, he will 
discharge the coon with a promise to pay when in funds. We 
moved along nicely to-day, making splendid time. About 3 p. m. 
a barricade was discovered across our road, on a rise of ground., 
just where it entered a piece of woods. The One Hundred and 
Forty-first deployed as 8kirmishei*s and advanced. Suddenly 
there was a puff of smoke, a re[M)rt, and 8 or 10 Confederate 
cavalrymen were seen scampering from behind that railpile. At 
the same time a numlKT of bullets whistled harmlessly over 
our heads. We pushed on rapidly after and discovered them 
trj'ing to burn a bridge that heiv spanned a small stream. The 
cornstalks they w(M*e using for kindling wood were damp, to- 
gether with the near proximity of the One Ilundred and Forty- 
fii*st'8 skirmish line caused their efforts to end in failure. They 
retreated to a ridge on the opjwsite side of the village of 
Davidsboro, on the Central Railroad of Georgia, which we were 
now entering, and where we encamp for the night, while the corps 
scouts drive the enemy from view. 

Nov. 28th. We are engageil at tearing up and burning the 
Central Railroad of Georgia. We made about twelve miles to 
Spiers Station to-day, loaviug a track of ruin and desolation be- 
hind us. The course we have traveled during the day can be 
traced by the reflection of the burning ties and bridges on the 
sky to-night; it is truly ** a cloud by day and a pillar of flre by 
night." 

Nov. 29th. Again engaged in tearing up and destroying rail- 
road tracks and bridges. Reach Bartow's Station about 5 p. m. 
Burned a sawmill and large amount of lumber. Anything an 
enemy could make use of is destroyed. 

Nov. 30th. We have left the railroad and again we are march- 
ing with the wagon trains. 

Nov. 30th, Dec. 1st and 2ud. Are marching with the wagon 
train. As we near the? coast the country is not so good. There are 
vast stretches of low ground covered with sand as white as snow 
and very difficult to tnivel through. The forage for either man or 
beast is not so plentiful, but by sending out large foraging par- 



State Historian. 123 

ties, have no trouble in obtaining all we want. The bojs are 
becoming adepts at finding articles that these Southern families 
bad secreted from them. What they do not find, I am afraid is 
not there, for they will search every place, even to a grave, for 
bidden treasure. The negroes are all loyal to the " boys in blue." 
The enemy's cavalry are now showing themselves daily, but they 
are not strong enough to bother us much. They do occasionally 
capture some of our foragers, who are altogether too venturesome. 
Dec. 3rd. Near Millen. Country sandy and plenty of second- 
gn^wth timber. The march is telling on some of the new recruits 
received before leaving Atlanta, diarrhoea being the prevailing 
complaint, caused, no doubt, by the diet or water. 

Dec. 4th. Nothing of importance. The heads of columns of the 
different corps are all meeting with more or less opposition, but 
not enough to cause any delay. 

Dec. 5th. Still on the march. This country through which we 

are now passing is alternated with patches of sand and marsh. 

The wagons often get stuck in the mud, causing long and tedious 

marches in the night to come up with the advance. Some of the 

boys occupy their time during these waits playing chuckluck, 

draw and whiskey poker. 

Dec. 6th, 7th and 8th. Country about the same as the three 
preceding days. There is now less individual foraging done than 
at the beginning of the march, as many of the boys have bc^en 
captured, while thus engaged, by venturing too far alone. A 
whole, or half, of a company goes out together nowadays and 
forages for the balance of the regiment. We are on what is known 
as the middle road to Savannah, which city, the rank and file 
have concluded, is our destination. 

Dec. 9th, We are again marching along a splendid turnpike 
road, with stone mile posts giving the distance to Savannah. 
Conntry low and quite thickly wooded with second-growth, inter- 
spersed with swamps. About noon one of these thickly wooded 
STramps — Monteith's Swamp — was reached, and where our 
road passed through it the enemy had felled large trees across it, 
and had also built a small dirt fort to command it, into which 



124 Annual Kkpokt of thk 

they had a section or two of artillery, with which they commenced 
\o shell us as we came in sight. The First Brigade was ordered 
to wade the swamp, while the Second Brigade went BiTOund to 
the left, to come in on the enemy's flank and rear. The One Hun- 
dred and Forty-first waded the swamp just at the left 
of the road, jumping from bog to bog, sometimes miring 
in the black, inky mud and water to their waists. iAfter perhapi 
half an hour they had wormed themselves up so close to the fort 
that they could hear the enemy talk. In a short time a yell wai 
heard from the flanking column, and at the same time we rushed 
forward and over the enemy's works; but the enemy, doubtlev 
smelling a mouse, had skedaddled just too soon for us. We now 
went into camp for the night. 

Dec. 10th. We are early on the march, following the same 
road used the day before. We come to several plantations and 
help ourselves to potatoes, rice and pigs. Some one in advance of 
ns lias taken the iliickens and turkevs. At the rate we are march- 
ing, and the number of miles to Savannah, indicated by the mile- 
posts, it wont take long to make it. All the forenoon we hear the 
boom of cannon in our front (this was confederates training their 
guns on our road). About noon the mile-posts indicate 5 miles to 
the city. We move out of the road into the forest and move 
forward until the line was pamllel with an old road that bordered 
an immense swamp and ran down to the Savannah river, which 
was about one mile to our left. A picket line was established 
about 80 or 100 yards in front, on the extr(»me edge of this swampi 
which at this point was from 200 to 300 yards across. The 
euemy-s pickets were posted on the opposite side of the swampii 
Their earthworks were also in plain view. 

Dec. 11th to Dec. 19 th. Good substantial earthworks are 
built. Our rations are pretty small, as we have cleaned out the 
country in our rear of provisions, and Hardee with a large foroe^ 
in our front. There is a mill for shucking rice about ten miles in 
our rear, in which the negroes, who are with us, in large numbers, 
are set to work preparing the rice for the use of the army. On 
the 13th, communication with the fleet that had been '' waiting 



State Historian. 125 

and watching " below. We received mail from home once more, 

and sent our good fat letters a^^ay, telling of the wonderful things 

we have done since leaving Atlanta. The enemy has a floating 

battery with which they shell us unmercifully every night. They 

run up the river until opposite our left flank and then let go for 

08. Nearly every tent in the One Hundred and Forty-first 

is barricaded with logs of trees, and even then these shells 

bunst over us and the pieces come down through the tents. 

They an* altogether too free with their hardware. They 

also drop shells into, and send solid shots through, our 

camps any time of day or night they think about it. 

The amount of it is, its mighty dangerous, and the only safe place 

is on the picket line. The Confederate pickets asked us last 

night how many mules we had eaten. We denied the allegation. 

Thank God, we have not come to that yet, nor do I believe we will, 

if the signs are true, for they are planting some siege guns in 

position to-night that will wake those fellows up across the 

swamp to the queen's taste. Last night too they drove Geary's 

IMvlBion all up into our <^amp to avoid the shells from their river 

battery. Provisions are pretty low; the cattle we would not eat 

on our way here comes verj- acceptable now, and the livers are 

-worth a dollar and the tails fiftv cents. 

Dec. 20th. The shelling to-night from the river battery and 
from their works in our front is unusually severe, the flying pieces 
striking our tents and barking the trees. 

Dec 3l8t. The enemy's fire suddenly ceased about 3 o'clock 
tbis morning, when it was soon learned that they had evacuated. 
We were in line by daybreak, croseed the swamp on some narrow 
p&ths on top of the dykes, and there we laid for several hours. 
"We see troops pouring into Savannah from all directions. We 
I>a8s through a portion of the city about noon, march about one 
and one-half miles up the river and encamp in a forest of live oaks, 
which, with the la;rge tufts of Bpanish moss hanging from their 
branches, made a very picturesque appearance. iMany of the men 
went to the city and helped themselves to the abundance of rice, 
found stored there, while the camp was being marked out. iRe- 



126 Annual iReport of ths 

C'civcd a mail and drew rations of hardtack, pork and cofFee, thii 
evening. Everybody feels like celebrating to-niirl^t; the great 
march has been a snccess. Although Hardee and his army have 
escaped, we stiM have Bavannah, with all her forts, stCMres and 
ammunition, cars and locomotives. We've left a track of nm 
and desolation in our rear, from 30 to 40 miles wide. The amoant 
of damage, — the blows inflicted to the Confederacy by this march 
from Atlanta to Savannah, is inestimable. 

Dec. 22d. The boys ai'e all busy building good qaarters, hb the 
prospects seem very good to stay here some time. There ii 
plenty of good material here for the getting. There is a vart 
swamp between us and the river. The old river battery the 
enemy shelled us so unmercifully with a few nights ago is sunk 
over near the South Carolina shore, her smokestack just showinK 
above the water. I^t her rest. The time until Deoember 30th 
was occupicKl in fixing up quarters, cleaning up, mending clothei 
and equipments, for the campaign had been pretty hard on cloth- 
ing and equipments. The health of tlie boys, as a rule, is good; 
the most of the sickness that does prevail is among the recroitB, 
who are not used to such vigorous campaigning. 

Dec. 30tli. There is a general review to-day, and that meant 
a move of some kind bc^fore many days. The Twentieth Army 
Corps, as it passed in review before General Sherman, presented a 
neat and soldierly bearing. Our dress parades have been resumed, 
and we also have a new Cornet Brigade Band that has just axTived 
from Boston, Mass. I understand they will be paidbyataz on the 
commissioned oflfic€»rs' pay. That will be good enough for "we 
uns." We occasionally get passes and visit the city, where rot 
lers are selling apples at six for one dollar, and other things is 
proportion. General Geary's Second Division, Twentieth Corps, 
is doing duty in the city. Details from the various commands are 
daily at work on the fortifications and thus we put in the time 
daily until January 17, 18G5, when we start on the Carolina Cam- 
paign. An account of our daily moves on that campaign I oan 
furnish with the exception of loss by disease.

FOR A BEnrDEB SYfiTEM OF KEEPING MILITARY 

REOORI>S. 

The3 State Historian's Project for the Creation op the 

Office of Regimental Recorder — ^Arguments for and 

against it by distinguished soldiers. 

Any person who carefully peruses the Official Recordfi of the Re- 
bellion will deplore the absence off many essential details and 
the presence of many needless errors, that were peiihaps unavoid- 
able, because of the inexperience, pressure of official responsi- 
bilities and lack of military training of the officers who were 
<;harged with the keeping and filing of records of a regiment. 
Nor are these deficiencies confined solely to officers of volunteers. 
A number of instances can be cited where the reports of gradu- 
ates of West Point, trained and educated soldiers, were returned 
because of incompleteness, in essential details that any officer of 
six months' experience in the field would have remedied. The 
most lamentable cases, however, are those where regiments were 
<jut to pieces in action, and no official reports were filed. The com- 
manding officer may have been killed, the next in command may 
have been inefficient or careless, and the brigade commander preju- 
4liced against the organization or its commandant. Then a>gain, the 
Official Records are conspicuously deficient in the matter of the 
^work of detached commands. This criticism applies particularly 



132 Annual Report of thb 

to the cavalry arm of the service. Up to the action at Kelly*» 
Ford, our cavalry was regarded as fit only to protect trains, ta 
scout in amall bodies, and to guard the flanks d army corps or 
the army itself. Commanding officers failed to acquire the habit 
of making reports ; for the last three years of the war this indiffer- 
ence continued to the marked detriment of an arm of the service 
that eventually became one of the greatest in the history of the 
civilized world. 

iSo far as army regulations were concerned, every precaution 
seems to have been taken for the proper preparation and protec- 
tion of tbe records, for their maintenance in the field and for their 
filing with the headquarters of the army. The adjutant of the 
regiment was supplied, or was supx)0sed to be supplied, with tiie 
requisite number of blanks and of forms on which the records 
of the regiment were to be kept. But, unfortunately, there were 
adjutants who were attentive to their duties and there were 
adjutants who were not. Then, again, in justice to some, duties 
were onerous, fighting was continuous and the time and facilities 
for performing their labors were uncertain — united with the 
danger of death, wounds and capture — that it is not at all sur- 
prising that many records were never made and that others that 
were, were lost before reaching their destination at Washington. 

How many times during the war the adjutant was called upon 
to command a company or a regiment, his original duties falling 
to the lot of a subaltern who was caireless, untrained or ineffi- 
cient. The question that naturally comes to any person who is 
interested in the a<iquisition and presei"vation of military histor- 
ical datu is, " What improvement, if any, can be made upon the 
system in use during the War of the Rebellion, should the United 
States be involved in another war? " 



State Historian. 133 

To that end, last June the following communication was sent 
to eighty-six regular army officers on the active ajid retired list, 
special attention heing given to general officers who commanded 
large bodies of troops during the War of the Rebellion : 

Sir. — ^A careful examination of the Official Records of the Re- 
bellion discloses throughout a deplorable absen-ce of detailed in- 
formation necessary to the complete history of the various vol- 
unteer organizations that served throughout the War of the Re- 
bellion.. This condition of affairs can readily be understood — 
through casualties to officers who kept regimental books, by the 
capture, by death and wounds, and to the capture and destruction 
of trains^ army and railway, to the greenness of new officers and 
by the negligence and indifference of commanders of regiments, 
and especially of detachments. The valuable material thus lost, 
so useful in perfecting the historical records of regiments, is 
incalculable. 

.With a view of profiting by the errors of our last war, and of 
establishing a system that womld obviate in the future the loss of 
such valuable material, and of insuring the perpetuation of every 
detail of a regiment or detachment in the field, the following 
proposition is submitted for whatever criticism you may see fit 
to make: 

Attached to every regiment shall be a commissioned officer 

who shall be known as the recorder of the regiment; who shall 

be under the general authority of the adjutant-general of the 

army; whose work shall be separate and distinct from that of the 

adjutant of the regiment; who shall bea non-combatant; who shall 

devote himself to preparing and keeping all records involving 

the movements of the regiment or any part thereof while in the 

field; who shall forward direct to the adjutant-general daily, or 

as frequently as events justify, all movements of the regiment 

or detachments thereof, filing the name of the commanding officer 

of the regiment, or of the detachment, with the number of men 

^taally engaged, or if a detachment the number carried with 

the detail from every comjiany or troop that constitutes such 



134 Annual Repout op thb 

detachment; who. before a regiment or a detachment goes inta 
action, shall personally learn the number of men to be engaged^ 
and at the close of said action shall coonpile a list of ca8naltie% 
by companies; 

He shall have such assistants, who shall also be non-combatants, 
as, in the judgment of the adjutant-general, may be neceaaary; 
Upon the termination of any engagement or skirmiah, he ahall 
formulate a succinct report, without comment or recommenda- 
tions, except as to his own department, giving in each case the 
name of th<^ officer in command of the regiment or detachment, 
the number of the brigade, division and corps to which the regi- 
ment or detachment was attached, and the part said raiment or 
detachment took, the said report to l>e indorsed by the com- 
mander of the n'giment or detachment. 

Th(* reconlers of regiments and their assistants shall be care- 
fully si^krtiHl men, conspicuous for good ptMimanship and general 
intelligence, and shall be held to the strictt^t accountability for 
accumcy of statement, particularly in the matter of dates, the 
spelling of proper names and of officers, men. and geographical 
places. 

With givat resjx^rt, I have the honor to remain, sir. 

Yours vt*ry truly,

' It was expected bt*fort*hand that every oftictT nith fighting 
blood would objtH.'t to the proposition of adding au additional 
non-combatant to the army. In vi^-w, howwor. of the caaualtiea

multifarious responsibilities of an adjutant, the creation of the 



State Historian. 135 

office of irecorder seemed to be justified as the simiplest and ntoet 
certain means of effectin«g the results contemplated. 

The replies that have been received indicate as great a variety 
«f opinion as would be found among twenty doctors in a critical 
dnd mysterious case. 

GreneraJ S. writes: 

" I would suggest that the important duty of recorder could be 
performed by the adjutant, if it were i)ositively required of him 
by the regulations and he was authorized to employ a clerk to 
assist liim in the work. It would also be well for the A. G. O. 
to provide suitable blank books^ with appropriate headings, indi- 
cating the information which ought to be recorded every day. 

" It is very imfportant that a daily record be kept of every com- 
mand, from a regiment up to an army. But the objection is very 
great to increasing the number of non-combatant officers in an 
army. Indeed, none of the staff like to be considered quite in 
that l^ht, but prefer to be called on to act with the military staff 
to assist the comimander in battle. 

" The modem development of stenography has made easy what 
'was before very difficult if not impossible. Now, every com- 
mander, from a colonel up, ought to have at his side at all times 
a good stenographer, to take down at his dictation a complete 
record of events as they occur, and transcribe it in ink every 
night Such a * recorder' would be of lower grade than com- 
missioned officer, but would be the more useful on that account. 
The record would be that of the comimander and not that of a 
subordinate." 

General W. writes: 

" I most heartily indorse the idea presented in your communi- 
cation of the 17th inst. of the appointment 6f a commissioned 
officer for each regiment in active service in the field, whose ex- 
clusive duty shall be the preparing " all records involving the 
movements of the regiment or any part thereof while in the 
field, etc." 



136 Annual Report op thb 

" I would however suggest the extending the idea to each and 
every distinct organizsation. above the regiment — tliat iB, to 
brigades, divisions, army corps and the army itself. My own ex- 
perience fully sustains the necessity for such ofBoen if we tie 
to have full and satisfactory records of the movements of a&amj 
and fractions thereof, in skirmishes, engagements and battlet. 
I recognize how useless it is to expect commanding offlcem, frani 
the colonel to the general, to prejxare full end reliable reporti 
in addition to their more immediate and pressing dutiee of com- 
mand, without the assistance of such an oiHcer as yon propo&t, 
whose sole duty shall be to collect and record the movemaiti 
of tjhe command with which he is connected. (Such officer, in 
the performance of his duty, should be independent of the com- 
mander of the immediate organization to which he is attached. 
His reports should, however, be submitted to his immediate com- 
mander for bis approval, or for such remarks and corrections, hy 
indorsement as he may feel called upon to make, before they are 
forwarded to the higher commander. 

" I am aware that these sujjgestions of mine ^ute outside of and 
beyond your scheme, which is limited to state organisations— 
that is, to rejriments, and I add them only to show the desirability 
and indeed the necessity of the services of an officer with every 
<'ommand whose exclusive duties shall be the preparation of re* 
pQi^ of everything pertaining to the movements and fighting Id 
which the command has part." 

General P., who also comtnanded a corps, writes: 

" I have the pleasure to acknowledge the receipt of your favor 
of the 21st instant, and to assure you that I coincide heartily in 
your suggestion for a complete record of the services of regiments 
during the war — heretofore rarely, if ever made and kept. 

The need of such record is now daily manifested by the absence 
of proof of data claimed in many applications for pensions. It 
is due the U. S. Government and the State as well as the appli- 
cant."

General B.: 

" Your letter of the 17th inst. has been receiTed. I aim much 
interested in the subject of it, and I appreciate the importance 
of having every occurrence, even those very trivial, truthifully 
recorded and presented for the use of historians, but I think the 
task would encounter more difficulties than are at first apparent. 

" There are two parties to every military occurrenee in time of 
war and if one is successful the other must have been defeated. 
The latter will suppress the truth if he possibly can and the other 
will be equally — in magnifying his achievement. When the re- 
ports reach Washington as they should, according to regulation, 
it is not very long until they come under the control of an inter- 
ested party, either as Secretary of War or General or Adjutant- 
Qemeral, and he will destroy all that is unpleasant to him. It 
was to stop this destruction that the Records of the Rebellion 
have been printed. At least so I have been told. A regimental 
recorder appointed as you suggest would record only what his 
colonel i)epmitted him to report, and that is the duty of the adju- 
tant to-day. 

" I do not suppose that (it) would be possible to reach anything 
like the truth of what is going on in Cuba to-day on either side, 
and if it were known, the government would not permit it to be 
recorded or even told confidentiallv. The same would be the case 
in Turkey and Greece and indeed everywhere else. I don't think 
your plan would work in war. We had some generals who car- 
ried with them newspaper men to write them up regardless of 
the truth."

General M.: 

" I am in receipt of your communication of June 15th, in which 
jou invite me to criticise a plan that you have to prevent the loss 
to history of valuable records during the war. In it you suggest 
that t he Record Keex)er should be a non-combatant and have other 
qualifications, which, to my mind, are very necessary. There are 
objections to the plan which might be urged and it is submitted 
that the army regulations provide for keeping records by the 




138 Annual Report op thb> 

adjutconts and other officers of the regiment mch as yoa propoM; 
There is no surety that other special represenitatiyeB would not 
be as neglectful as are the officers of the regiment in time of 
active senice. Another suggestion which comeB to my mind is 
the fact that these men, moved by partiality or i>rejadice, might 
do a groat injustice in making their reports. However, if the 
matter of exjiense would not prevent, I think that year plan 
might result in a very ex(»ellent record being kept." 

In another letter the General writes: 

" I think your scheme a very good one, and, with a due degree ct 
modification, it might be made the means of a very jierfect rec- 
ord in time of war, which is all important." 

Oeneral B.: 

" I have gone over the matter very carefully, and would aaj 
that I am doubtful if any such scheme as that proposed by yoo 
could be made successful in time of war. A non^omibatant ele- 
ment is not that which would be liable to see and note those 
things which you mention. A commissioned officer, who is a non- 
combatant would be in an anomalous, questionable XMsitioBi and 
then too a recoi'der carrying out the ideas you suggest would be 
as liable to be shot down as any other. 

" I agree with you that some system should be adopted which 
wx)uld make the records more reliable as regards the points indi- 
cated by you. but I am doubtful if the plan suggested by you 
would be feasible." 

(ieneral : 

" I am not pi-epared however to advocate attaching any more 
non-combatants to troops in the field than are absolutely ueces- 
sar^', as experience during the great War of the Rebellion showed 
how great an army of camp followers were maintained and what 
an incubus such persons were, either during an advance, a retreat 
or a great battle; they must be fed and frequently use up ma- 
terials absolutely necessary for the fighting men of an army. 



State Historian. 139 

*' Raw troops think but little of the future; they are making 
history and seldom think of recording it at the time. 

*' I can recall instances within my personal knowledge where 
within 48 hours after a great battle it was impossible for division 
commanders to agree upon the positions occupied by their troops 
during the day of the fight. 

" Company commanders, assisted by their Lieutenants and 1st 
Sergeants could better keep the record of the work of their com- 
pany, ita losses, its successes and reverses, and could present these 
statements daily or weekly to the regimental Adjutant, retaining 
copies for the company records; the Adjutant oould forward 
these to the Adjutant-General direct, whenever opportunity pre- 
sented and thus regimental history would be recorded in the War 
Department as rapidly as it would be made. 

" I think it would be far preferable to require from the fighting 
men, the reports of their companies, rather than to leave such 
matters to non-combatants, whose duties would be of a character 
that might not bring to them the assistance required from men 
who are frequently under fire. 

" No one can keep a better or truer record of a company than its 
imnaediate commander, who knows every man by name, his char- 
acter, personal habits and as a rule, his antecedents.'' 






General S. : 

" I take pleasure in stating that the plan you suggest contains 
the elements of efficiency and is on the right track. 

"If you will consult a little volume entitled "Ti-oops in Cam- 
paign," issued by direction of the President, in 1892, you will find, 
on page 28, that provision has been made for the keeping of field- 
Doteg, sketches, journals of marches, and other incidents per- 
taining to troops in time of war. These note-books are issued by 
tbe Engineer Department of the Army. I do not think they are 
■ ^olBdently full in detail to cover all the points stated in your 
fetter, but they are comprehensive enough to afford very valuable 
niaterial. I would be pleased to see the plan you suggest sub- 
adtteA to a board of officers for such amendment and modification

as might be considered wise, in its adaptability to the needs of 
the Army," 

General W. places the following indorsement on the plan : 
" I approve your suggestions. If they were adopted by all mili- 
tary organizations, state and national, errors would be avoided, 
and perfect records assured." 

General C: 

" I beg, in answ<er to your favor of June 15th, just received, to 
advise you that in the light of our experience during the late war. 
I am opposed in toto to making any addition whatever to the non- 
combatants attached to regiments or fighting unjts. On the 
other hand, I would favor the enactment of a law devolving upon 
a sc»parate corps (of which a small nucleus might be kept up in 
ptiace time), all administrative work not required for the im- 
mediate needs of the regiment, thus protecting its fighting 
strength from drafts that have been hitherto made upon it for 
such work. 

** The loss of valuable information likely to arise through the 
circumstances attending our present organization, and methods 
which you mention, is concedcnily a defect. But I doubt whether 
the rc^medy you proi)ose would not involve a more serious evil — 
that of giving to an officer, who does not go into battle, the ox^por- 
tunity of diNscribing incidents theiiH)f, if not to criticise the par- 
ticipants therein." 

General A.: 

** While from experience I realize how desii^able it is that the 
history of each military organization should be complete, I am 
constrained to withhold my approval of the plan you suggest.*' 

General A. suggests: 

"That each reginu'ntal officer of the * National Guard' be 
requin»d to make a comprehensive rejjoi't of all service in which 
he lias taken a part as soon as the duty is performed — ^that is: a 
1st and 2d Lieutenant to his Captain, a Captain, a Major and 
Lt.-Colonel, direct to the Regimental Commander, through the 
Adjutant, the Captain forwarding his Lieutenant reports. 



Btate Historian. 141 

" All these reports to be forwarded by the Regimental Com- 
mander with his own rejwrt to next higher authority, and so on 
until they all reach Headqaarters. 

'^ My idea is that this course may establish a habit which will 

prove its value in an active campaign, when most of the officers 

of our organizations must be men trained in the ^ National 

^uard; " 

General H. : 

'*ln time of war, judging from the neglected records of the 
past, it would be necessary to have a ' record officer,' whose sole 
4nty it would be to keep the data — and no line officer would have 
the time or opportunity. He would have to be an extra officer 
attached to regiments, and for this legislation would be needed." 

General W.: 

''In reply would say, that some such plan as you suggest might 
*^ for the National Guard and army in time of peace, but I do not 
see how it would work practically in war time. As it is now, 
the history of each company is or should be given on the muster 
1^11, for the period covered by the roll and thence be recorded on 
the regimental roll and transmitted, i. e., a copy of the history 
t:o the A. G's. of the state and army, where the records belong. 
In my experience in the field I found that the company and new 
regimental commanders failed to give sufficient data, but I do 
not see how you can dovetail a civilian into the business. This 
is not clear to my mind. I hope your correspondence with others 
and the concerted action of those interested in this movement 
"wll lead to a better system. It cannot be much worse." 

General F.: 

" Referring to the subject matter of your letter of the 17th, I 
^aye to say that while I admit that the matter of regimental 
^^<>ord8 do not clearly show in detail many things historically in- 
teresting and well worthy of record, I do not believe that it will 
^ possible to obtain such a thing as the appointment of a com- 
Biissioned officer, a non-combatant too, for such purposes. It 



142 Annual REroRT of the 

would be far too exiK^naive and it is not a necessity; furthermore^ 
we have too many non-combatants on the field now, in the way 
of surgwns, chaplains, and the hospital corps. Try for a good 
detailed enlisted man to be under control of the adjutant. You 
might get that by hard work." 

General B.: 

" My own experience leads to the view that this is unnecessaiy 
in time of peace and would fail in time of war to accomplish the 
desin^d purpose; it would not, I think, pi-oduce nearly as good 
results as having the records kept by the combatant officers as at 
present. ♦ ♦ ♦ The expense of such an officer with his aa- 
sistants would add considerably to the expense of a war, with- 
out apparently contributing to its successful prosecution. This 
would be a serious objection." 

General V.: 

" I certainly agree with you as to the necessity for measures to 
secui'e detailed information reciuisite to the complete histories of 
volunteer n*giments in future disturbance's or wars and thus to 
profit by the experience of the War of the Kebellion, wherein 
there was a marked failure to secure essential data necessary to 
perfect, and render valuable, the histories of the various organic* 
ations. But defects were the results of post, regimental/ com- 
pany and detached commanders, and inspectore, failing to com- 
ply with orders and instructions, even to the neglect of require- 
ments and notes on the blank forms. 

" I do not think that the office of regimental recorder should 
be created for the object specified in your letter. The Regi- 
mental Adjutant should continue to be charged with the duty; 
and th(? better to secure for him the requisite information, he 
should have the aid of post commanders, company commandnv, 
mustering offlcere and insi)ectors. Through carefully prepared^ 
rigid orders, the latter four classes could be made to see to it 
that all officers concerned, promptly and accurately supplied the 
required data. 



Statb Historian. 143 

'^ It is needless to add that all persons charged with making 
* records of events ' should be accurate, systematic and prompt, 
in all connected therewith. 

'*When regiments and other organizations shall have been 
brigaded, or when not assigned to brigades, assigned to depart- 
ments, the Adjutant-General or the brigade or department, 
should be held to a rigid accountability that the oflBcers of com- 
mands fully execute their parts, in order to secure the reliability 
of the information and the consequent perfection of all records." 

General S. : 

"I have carefully examined your plan, and consider the object 
you seek a very important one, but I think the present system 
will secure the results desired. I feel that a change from the 
present system is not desirable and cannot approve the substi- 
tute you propose." 

Colonel G.: 

^^I consider your idea an excellent one and without discussing 
the details (which would be an after consideration by the author- 
ities), I would merely suggest that at least so far as the regular 
amy shall be affected, that the bureau of military intelligence 
be so enlarged in time of war as to give such an officer as you 
indicate to each regiment, and that the governor of each State 
establish such a bureau in connection with the office of Adjutant- 
General of the state." 

Colonel H. suggests: 

" That the recorder of every regiment in time of war shall re- 
ceive the rank, pay and emoluments of a Captain of Cavalry. 

" He shall have such assistants, enlisted clerks, with rank, pay 
and emoluments of Sergeants of Cavalry. • The captain recorder 
<rf the regiment shall also report ux)on all men attached to his 
lament or to its detachments; recording Regimental Sergeants 
serving with detachments before transmitting their reports to 
their regimental Captain Recorder, shall submit them to their 
detachment commander for his indorsement. 



144 Annual Report of the 

'^ The regimental Captain Recorder will keep a book contain- 
ing copies of all reports made to the Adjutant-Oeneral with all 
indorsements thereon, said book to be the property of the regi- 
ment. 

'^ Captain should be the grade of the Recorder, as oif 'the lowest 
grade in the Adjutant-Generars Department; as a Ldeatenant be 
would be treated by the regiment as an * idler ' (in the navy- 
man's sense of the word); as a Field Officer he would put on too 
many airs for good discipline in camp. 

*^ I suggest Sergeant's grade for the clerks, because with no 
grade they would be guyed by all the soldiers. I should assimi- 
late them with all cavalrv to entitle them to niounta.^* An after 
thought: '* These oliicers would save their pay to Government in 
post helium times, by discouraging the multitude of false claims 
for pensions, with their accompanying exi)en'se for investigation." 

Colonel C. : 

** I think such an office would be of great utility, in view of 
the chaotic condition of the records of various regiments during 
the War of 'Gl-65. In many cases this could not have been 
prevented as * the historian ' and his records would have been 
lost in some otf the disasters. I am however of the opinion that 
Congress would not commission an additional officer for this pur- 
jx>se in the Establishment, and I therefoi-e suggest that the 
Cimplain of the regiment should bo ex officio the 'recorder' of the 
regiment, and that these duties should be made a i>art of what 
should be exi)ected of him." 

-Colonel W.: 

'* I doubt the exi)ediency of cTeating the suggested office. Un- 
der existing conditions there is no lack of recwd, so far as quan- 
tity is concerned, and the only improvement desired is in the 
(luality. It does not st*em to me that such improvement could be 
obtained in any other way than by the insti^iction of commanders 
and adjutants in a branch of military duty which we might term, 
*• What to rei>ort and how to report it.'- There is no certainty 



State Historian. 145 

ihsd recorders having merely the qnalilicatioas of good penman- 
ship and general intelligence, would not often show the same in- 
difference and negligence a& that which is to be deplored in 
some cases under existing conditions. 

" The creation of the new office wouldincrease the number of 
officers and the expense of the army, without adding in tfhe least 
to the combatant strength. The functions of the adjutant and 
recorder would be likely to conflict and the recorder would be a 
wurce of friction that would be injurious to military efficiency. 
Even if the recorder were zealous in his duties, and tactful in 
his official intercourse with others, his interest in his regiment 
would often cause him to send in yoluminous reports about mere 
trifles, and the 'task of the flnal historian would be greatly in- 
creased by the aimount of chaff through which he would have to 
hunt for a single kernel of wheat. If the recorder were not an 
accomplished militajry man his reports would be oif little value, 
even though they were perfect in rhetoric and conscientious as 
to fact; if he were an accomplished soldier his services could 
soarc^y be spared from the combatant strength of the army. 

" On the whole, therefore, I feel constrained to say that I do 
not think the creation of the office of regimental recorder would 
be in the interests of the military service." 

Ck)lonel C. : 

" Your proposition is to formulate a well devised scheme by 
which the services of regiments, etc., in the "field shall be closely 
followed, on the «pot, so that valuable material may be obtained 
to perfect their historical records. 

'*The object is an excellent one, but practical experience in the 
field with troops during the War of the Rebellion has satisfied 
^ that it would be very unwise to increase the number of non- 
combatants with armies in active service, and I am of the opinion 
<hat nothing woudd be gained by the scheme proposed towards 
preserving regimental records, as in my judgment the difficulty 
<rf doing so effectively is largely, if not wholly, due to causes that 
would affect the accuracy of the records, no matter by whom kept. 

10 



146 Annual Repout of the 

In time of active oi>eratlous it is extremely difficult to observe the 
ordinal*;}' routine of keeping accounts and records, and the lapses 
which occur are due to that fact and not to the lack off proper 
officers to keep them. One difficulty, in this matter, during the 
late war, was the inability to secure adjutants and clerks versed 
in the preparation of military statistics. It could not be expected 
that these would be found, to any great extent, in our Volunteer 
armies during the period from 1861 to 18G5, but it migbt not be 
so difficult a;t the present day as there is a much greater knowl- 
edge of military d(?tails on the part of the general public than 
there was thirty-six years ago. 

** Gamps during wai'are liable to seizure, including records and 
not a trace may ever be found of the latter. Indeed, the histo- 
riiins thenis<^lves, if they accompany the armies to the field as non- 
combatants, must take their chances of death or capture and this 
alone would make the value of their service problematical. 

•' The object in vit^w is a most desirable one, but difficult of 
achieviMiient and c(*rtainly your consideration of the subject with 
a view to souie better phui than we seemed to have in the late 
war is most commendable." 

Colonel S.: 

** Being familiar with the disadvantages which imperfc^ct regi- 
mental returns entail on the government, I can well understand 
why you wish to introduce a system calculated to secure a more 
complete and reliable n^cord. 

** And I am strongly of opinion that all casualties, caused not 
only by the enemy's bullets, by sickness and captures, but also by 
desertion, should be reported direct to the Adjutant-General of 
the Army; the sending of such reports through intermediate com- 
mander's or the ' military channel ' being sure to retard their 
receipt and likely to occasion their loss. The government has 
spent millions of dollai*s upon bona ffde deserters, who through 
faulty records and und(*r Ihe authority <*onferii»d on the War De- 
partment by Congress for removing the charge of desertion under 
certain circumstancirs, have succeeded in having themselves ' re- 



-«• i-m 



State Historian. 14T 

habilitated/ and entered on the pension rolls. But I fear the 
appointment of an officer for the exclusive purpose of keeping the 
records would involve complications hurtful to discipline which 
would go far to offset the advantages likely to accrue therefrom. 

"A form of return of casualties might be devised so compre- 
hensire in its nature and so easy to fill out that the senior of the 
field or regimental staff officers present for duty at the end of an 
engagement and also at the end of say every month might be 
trusted to submit it direct and in proper form to the Adjutant- 
General of the Army. 

"The subject is an important one, not only to the military his- 
torian, but also to the discipline and morale of the service and to 
the treasury of the United States." 

Colonel C. : 

"The proposition contained in your circular letter of the 21^ 
June, does not entirely meet with my approval, mainly for the rea- 
son that it adds to the number of non-combatants, and to trans- 
portation and subsistence for horse and man when it is of para- 
mount importance that these departments be burdened with the 
minimum of impedimenta. 

"Also because the duties to be discharged by this numerous 
staflf of Recorders are directly the duties of all commanding offi- 
cers from the company up to the corps, and should be required of 
thea and no excuse given foi* any neglect by allowing transfer to 
other hands, i. e., too many cooks and no broth. 

"Also because the absence of the information you desire to 
collect is largely due to capture, accidents of flood and fire, inter- 
ruption of lines of communication, destruction of depots, which 
would as fuJly affect the transmitted labor of the Recorder as of 
the Colonel. 

"All the information in question should be on the muster-roU 
where it betongs and be put there directly by the immediate com- 
nwtndw^. J doubt not these objections have occurred to you and 
have been nullified by facts and conclusions not now accessible 
to me." 



148 Annual Report of the 

Ck>lonel H.: 

" I believe your plcui an excellent one, but it would require new 
laws to carry it out and it occurs to me, that the law-making 
powers in Congress, are very good people to get interested in the 
subject." 

Colonel H.: 

** The evidence that our records have been too imperfect and 
too carelessly preserved to enable the historian to find complete 
detailed information is abundant on all sides. The intent of the 
law organizing the Adjutant-General's department was that it 
should be the custodian of official rei>orts, orders, letters, etc., 
and, if that law is broadly construed and faultlessly executed, 
there ought to be no difficulty in the matter. 

**The system as set forth in paragraphs 789-812,both inclusive, of 
the Army Regulations of 1895, is thoroughly sound. Every 
officer having a command has to make a report, and every report, 
from that of an officer out with a detachment of a company to the 
corps commander, is subject to review and correction by superior 
authority. These official reports are written by those who were 
active agents, or intelligent instruments, in executing a concerted 
plan of operations. These agents, or thinking instruments, are 
authorized in their various spheres of work to disregard detailed 
instructions for good and sufficient cause. The analysis of the 
situation which leads up to the breaking away from detailed in- 
structions cannot be definitely known to others unless they are 
8elf-evid(?nt or stated by the commander concerned. The histo- 
rian must necessarily depend ui)on him for his stiitement of the 
case. The recorder, who would simply write down the operations 
of the day, and so leave unexplained all deviations from instruc- 
tions, would leave the historian materials that would damn many 
capable and conscientious officers. The material to serve the 
future historian, must, per force, be the work of those who were 
responsible. In case of the death of the responsible head where 
non-compliance with instructions has occurred, each writer must 



State Historian. lid^ 

work out bis own solution from the report of the facts as made 
by the person or persons engaged in the operations concerned. 

" Tbe system of having a * double-track ' adjutant-generar* 
office I do not think practicable, and I think it would not stand 
after a trial. My own idea would be to seek correction by an im- 
provement in the adjutant-general's department. This could be 
done in many ways, but, to meet the deficiency you mention^ it 
migbt be aided very much by attaching to the headquarters of 
every general officer's command a non-combatant clerk whose 
only duty would consist in keeping, under the supervision of the 
commander, a careful record — a log — of events, and seeing that 
the required reports were promptly rendered, examined and for- 
warded. In nine ca^es out of ten such reports would have to pass 
through some superior who could supply deficiencies or correct 
misstatements that resulted from want of full knowledge of the 
operations in general, or from change of commanders by reason of 
casualties^ etc." 

Majors.: 

" I beg leave to acknowledge your favor of June 17, and to say 
that the subject matter of it has interested me very much. As 
Adjutant of my regiment, after the late war I had an experience 
in compiling the history of the regiment similar to your own. 
The records were in great confusion and wanting in many of the 
ordinary details. The only reliable sources of information were 
the muster-rolls and these, not infrequently, were missing, having 
been lost or captured by the enemy. 

" I certainly agree with you that some one should be placed in 
charge of the records of our Army during an active campaign, but 
whether the individual should be a non-combatant is a question 
about which I am not altogether clear. Circumstances would 
arise which would make the position of such an official, charged 
with that particular duty, very difficult. Theoretically we have 
now officers whose sole duty it is to look after the correspondence 
and official records of the Army; that they do not perform their 
daties completely is, in many instances, I am sure, the result of 



150 Annual Report of the 

ignorance as much as carelessness. But of «rarse they are 
mei'ely compilers, receiving their information from other aonrces. 
As a matter of fact, if every com!pany and detachment comxnaiider 
taking part in any military operation, would render the retams 
and records now required of them the difficulty that you mention 
would disappear absolutely. Therefore, it is not plain to me that 
even if we had such an official as you mention^ to look after the 
records of the Army, he would be able to accomplish much unless 
all commanders gave him the necessary information. It occurs to 
me that what we need most is a simplification of the records and 
careful instruction in their .preparation." 

Major B. : 

f I beg to say, in all frankness^ that I do not consider your 
scheme at all feasible or necessary for the following reasons: 

^* 1. An able-bodied commissioned officer (excepting doctors 
and chaplains) who in time of war is a non-combatant, would be a 
curiosity and such a class should not be encouraged. Only able- 
bodied men could do the work you speak of. 

" 2. Such work and reports as you require of the Recorder of 
the regiment are now all provided for. The casualties of war, 
however, will affect your Recorder to as great a degree as it will 
those now directed to furnish the information you desire, espe- 
cially should he put himself in position to obtain it; so that you 
are no better off with him than you are now. 

"3. Furthermore, in my opinion, the Recorder and his assistants 
might not be tolerated to any great degree and certainly would 
never be in as good position to obtain the data as the Adjutant 
of the regiment or the Adjutant-General of the brigade or other 
officers required by law and regulations to make the reports you 
mention. 

^' I am sorry to have to disagree with you in this matter, but 
I give you my candid opinion." 

It will be observed that among the older officers, those who saw 
^active field service during the war, who commanded large bodies 



State Historian. 151 

of troops, and who understand the difficulties that stand in the 
way of looking after organization routine matters during an active 
campaign of fighting, the general proposition for the creation of 
the office of Recorder is either unqualifiedly endorsed or accepted 
with certain modifications. On the other hand, the younger offi- 
cers, who came into the service toward the close of the war as sub- 
alterns, or who never served with a great army, .disapprove the 
suggestion or condemn it absolutely. 

^Notice will be taken of but one criticism, that which appeared 
in the Army and Navy Journal of date, July 3d, 1897, in which 
the writer, with a self-complacency that is simply delightful, uses 
tliis language: "This plan (to establish the office of Recorder) 
strikes us as wholly impracticable, not to say absurd. It would 
be much better to adopt some method of securing competent men 
as adjutants of the volunteer regiments, and give them competent 
clerks.'- 

How would this suggestion of the Army and Navy Journal 
oi>erate in such a case as the battle of Cedar Mountain, wherein 
three regiments, the Twenty-eighth New York, the Forty-sixth 
Pennsylvania and the Fifth Connecticut, suffered the loss of 
every field officer and adjutant — the Twenty-eighth New York 
having, in addition, every company officer killed or wounded? 

Let a careful examination be made of the Official Records of the 
Rebellion, and the following faults will appear as most conspicu- 
ous: Absence of necessary detailed information; inaccuracy of 
statement on the part of superior officers; for ignorance on the 
part of commanding officers with the names of subordinates and 
of spelling of geographical names; for general indifference to 
statement of fact in casualties; for vagueness of expression and 



152 Annual Report op the 

indefiniteness of description of locality in which their commandB 
operated, and for the omission of important historical data. 

One of the most conspicuous faults of this character can be 
found in General Grant's telegram to the War Department on 
August 9thy 1864, announcing the great explosion at City Point* 
The last sentence of his dispatch reads: ''As soon as the smoke 
clears away, I will ascertain and telegraph you." Two days lat^r 
the smoke had apparently cleared away, for General Grant then 
reported the number of casualties, and closed the dispatch with 
the following sentence: " The damage to property was large bat 
I have not the means of reporting it." 

October 24, 1864, General Butler issued the following general 
order (No. 139):

" Th(? transaction of business at these headquarters is con- 
stantly iraipeded by the inexcusable delay of subordinate officers 
in furnishing information required of them. This is true both in 
regard 1o regular returns and rei)ort8, and those specially called 
for. 

Both promptitude and accuracy are peremptorily required, and 
no excuse will be considered valid, except that the troops are 
actually in action at the time. The fact that the men are engaged 
in fortifying or intrenching will not be accepted as an excuse for 
remissness of their oflicers, which must be chargeable simply to 
laziness and inattention.

February, 1865, General Hancock used the following language, 
in connection with his report of guns captured and lost from May 
3d to Novem'ber 1st, and list of colors captured and lost from 
May 4tb to November 1st, 1864, of the Second Corps: 

" Washington, D, C, February — , 1865. 

" I desire to say in conclusion that the delay in the transmission 
of this report; its deficiencies in reference to the operations of the 
troops under my command during the battle, not belonging to the 
Second Corps, and the absence of many details of the movements 
of brigades and regiments of the Second Corps on that field, have 
been occasioned by the urgent and constant occupation of my 
time, absorbed as it was by the subsequent operations of the 
campaign, by the almost total absence of detailed reports from 
division, brigade^ and regimental commanders, and lastly, as has 
been previously stated, by the nature of the ground on which the 
battle was fought, which made it impossible to observe the move- 
ments of the troops after they had entered the forest, whose 
thickets concealed the various incidents of the fight from all save 
those who were immediately engaged. These circumstances com- 
bined have not only prevented me from furnishing an accurate and 
minute report of the operations of the troops, but have unfor- 
tunately been the cause of the omission from this report of the 
names of very many brave oflBcers and soldiers whose conduct 
richly entitled them to special mention and commendation." 

In detailing an action near Bermuda Hundred, Va., June 24, 
1864, Colonel Edgar M. Cullen, of the Ninety-sixth New York, 
who commanded a brigade that consisted of the Eighty-first, 

Xinety-sixth, Ninety-eighth and One Hundred and Thirty-ninth 

New York reported: 

*'About 7 a. m. the enemy opened a heavy fire from probably 
twenty pieces, in battery on the left bank of the Appomattox, on 
the line occupied by this brigade. The fire enfiladed the pits, but 



154 Annual Keport of the 

having given the greatest possible attention to the trayerses the 
night before, it was harmless. This lasted for an hoar, after which 
the enemy, having greatly relied on the efficacy of their artillery 
fire, attempted to carry ooir works. They advanced probably ia 
two lines of battle, but in a very short time were nu>Bt handflomely 
repulsed. The line in advance not being able to retire was cap- 
tured almost entirely, consisting of some 150, of whom 5 were 
officers. The attack did not extend beyond the front occupied by 
our brigade. The greatest credit is due both to the officers and 
men of this command, which the ease with which they repolged 
the enemv oulv enhances. 

"I have the honor to name Lieu t(»nant-ColonelRaul8ton (Eighty- 
first New York), who took command after I received a sunstroke;. 
Captain Kreutzer, Ninely-eighth New York Volunteers, and Cap- 
tain Fitzpatrick, One nundrtKl and Thirty-nintli New York Volun- 
teer. Lieutenant (,'ool<»y. One Hundred and Thirty-ninth New 
York Volunteei-s, who went beycmd the* lines and brought in some 
prisonei'H, is especially worthy of menlion.-' 

No mention of this attack aj^pears in any other way, nor any- 
where else than in C'olonrl Cullen's iH^port. More I'emarkable 
still, in the list of engagements furnislu^d to this office by the 
surviving officers of tlie Eighty-first New York, Ninety-sixth 
New York, NimMy-eiglitli New York and One Hundred and 
Thirly-ninth Ntnv York, no allusion whatever is made to it; de- 
spite the fact that Colonel CuUen commends the services of the 
four commanding officers of those four regiments. 

The author of the KtM'order phin has no pride of ox)inion what- 
ever in tlie matter, but submits it for what it is worth, with the 
full consciousness that in many respects, particularly in many 
matters of detail, the Official Reconls of th(» Rebellion, as now 
published, reflect anything but credit upon the practical opera- 
tions of th(» army organizations so far as the keeynng of regimental 
records was concern(Hl, betwetm 18G1 and 18f>5, and with the full 



Statb Historian. 155 

confidence that in the course of time some modification of or 
improvement in that system will be made. In view of all the facts 
that have been brought to light, either the CJolonel of a regiment 
or the Adjutant will have assigned to him a typewriter for duty 
at headquarters; or a mounted officer representing the Adjutant- 
General's Department will be detailed either from the regiment 
itself or from the general staff, who will relieve the Adjutant of 
all matters outside of mere camp routine, and who will specially 
undertake the arduous work of recording the history of the regi- 
ment or any detachment thereof, from the moment it is ordered 
to the front.* 

* Since the promulgation of the advance sheets of this report, the attention of this office has 
been called to the excellent recommendation which was made nearly ten years ago, by that 
dlffUngaished soldier and writer. Colonel William F. Fox, in his well^nown and acknowledged 
authoritative publication entiUed ** Regimental Losses in the Civil War.'* During the progress 
of the stupendous undertaking which resulted in his giving to the world one of the most accu- 
rate and at the same time laborious publications connected with the War of the Rebellion, 
Colonel Fox early saw the necessity of reorganidng the system that was in use during the 
War of the Rebellion, for the collection of regimental returns and records, and of having 
detailed an officer whose duties should be confined to compiling the history of his organization. 
Colonel Fox*s language is as follows : 

** In each regiment there should be some officer, attached to the non-commissioned staff, 
who should be entrusted with the care and preparation of the regimental statistics and casu- 
alty lists: and this person should be exempted from all liability to accidents in battle, and 
should not be allowed to go into action. During such times as the regiment was not engaged 
in an active campaign, this officer would find ample employment in ascertaining the fate of 
missing men, and of the wounded and sick who were absent in hospital or on furlough. AU 
statements of casualties in batUe made by him should be accompanied by a report of the 
number engaged, and such statements, together with all other mortuary reports, should be 
made in manifold, one copy\o be forwarded to the War Department and one to the Adjutant 
General of the State to which the regiment belonged. There should, also, be a definite 
agreement between belligerents that all captured records of this class should not be 
destroyed ; and, that a full record should be carefully made of the fate of all prisoners within 
their respective lines. 

** To all this some may sneer and some will say, '* Cut bono f ** If so, let it be remembered 
that there are other reasons than money or patriotism which induce men to risk life and limb 
in war. There is the love of glory and the expectation of honorable recognition. But the 
private in the ranks expects neither. His identity is merged in that of his regiment. To him 
the regiment and its name is everything. H«) does not expect to see his own name on the page 
of history, and is content with a proper recognition of the old command in which he fought. 
But he is jealous of the record of his regiment, and demands credit for every shot it faced 
and every grave it filled. 

*'The bloody laurels for which a regiment contends will always be awarded to the one with 
the longest Roll of Honor. Scars are the true evidence of wounds and the regimental scars 
can be seen only in the record of its casualties. In our last war many a noble regiment lost 
the place in history to which it was entitled through a failure to file the proper recox^ ot \\a- 
f^allant deeds. WiU it always be so r *

leport of Jacob Leisler and Dirck Yander Clyff, of amounts 
due workmen at the Fort) that New Utrecht and Brooklyn only 
have paid their Comtrihutions* 

Pnrduant, to the order of the Schout Borgoraasters and Schepens 
an the last Court day, dated 17 January 1674 ulto directing us, the 
undersigned, to examine the book regarding the fort, we have, 
accordingly, found therein as follows : 

Firet. We find that the Burgesses of this place have paid in full 

and that these only are indebted to the workmen : 

Jan SchoQten one-half beaver 

Jacob Swart 2 skepels of peas 

Benjamin Provoost 2 beaver skins 

Jaqnes 8 gl 

Peter Nys 30 gl 

Jan Nebson 20 gl 

Isack Kip 4 gl 

Abram Mol 7 gl 

and a note of 10 gl but unnegotiable. 

We find that all the towns on Long Island remain still without 
I paying, except New Utrecht and Breucklen which have paid. 

We cannot find that Fort Orange, Schaenechtede or Esopus are 
(Jebited in any part of the book ; Yet is it notorious to all the world 
wbsLt the aforesaid places have promised and what they have per- 
formed 

We find that Coely hath received a sum of six hundred guilders 
from New Utrecht and cannot find that said Coely has any claim 
or a stiver, and the said item of 600 gl. inserted in the book is 
rritten by a strange hand.

will bee requisite : However while there is life there is some hope 
remaines I did with great satisfaction read Yo'r noble son Majo'r 
Winthrop's letter which Mr Willis was pleased to show mee, relating 
the late passages at the East End of Long] Island when the Dutch 
Comand'rs went away without the chiefe P't of their erand for the 
Carrying of the * from Shelter Island was probably but the 
least P't of it : I question whether the Inhabit'ts do not owe their 
present safety & f reedome from the Dutch Yoakc to that * pres- 
ence providence ordering him to be there whose well * so upon a 
greater occasion authorized * alike successefull. I could heartily 
wish the united Colonyes here would agree to anticipate the Expec- 
tations from Europe, in w'ch as there would bee great liono'r so the 
attempt meed not fear of success if backt with speedy Resolution 
for there is a great dampre at pres't upon the spirits of the Enemy

then asked me what my busines was to yorke I answered ye towne 
had sent me to him to know what was the meaning of the order y't 
was Comed out from the speciall Court held in September, the w'ch 
order, was that inr Smith should have a lieareing in equitie ye next 
October and we did concaive y't sutt had been in equitie alreadie the 
gouvner Answered me y't there wee no such order .1 replied ther 
was such an order he still replied there was not upon w'ch having ye 
order by me under Mathias Nicolls hand. I drew it forth and 
shewed it to liim and when he had looked it over he ye said gover- 
nor said, I vow this is a false order Contrary to my mind and the 
most of ye Court ; I will charge no bodie but I know whoose it is I 
will look better into these things. I desired him to inform me what 
we should do seeing the order was Comed forth showing to him 
that y't order was very Strang to us, for by y't order the Court had 
granted to Smith more than Smith did desire in his petition at ye 
Court in October, as also Strang in as much as we concaived y't ye 
soutt had been in Equitie alredie; the governor Answered it was 
true, for the Jugment which the Court gave when it was tried was 
ether Equitie or nothing for it was not common law ; then he bad 
us not treble ourselves no further about it for when he did retume 
from Conitticott, (Connecticut) he with his Connsell would send an 
order under his hand that should piit a full period to any further 
-debatt about the land. This I doe afirme y't that the sum and su\>

attaine his end the last slanderous course he tooke was as is well 
known, which was attempting & undertaking in the open Court of

these evidences the which evidences bee affirmed was the materiall 
evidences upon which ye Jury cast the case, upon which condicon 
he peticoned for a hearing yecondicons being promised could not in

evidently proved to the Satisfaction of Go'er 6z counsell & all By

fruin a lower Sentens to a higher w^ithout reasone, much less from 
ye liighest court to ye same, if it be alledged it was never

derstand common law and not only wee but others better knowing 
y'n wee, is y't when a Jury have received a case, and sent out by ye 
Judge to bring in their virditt and doe bring in a varditt in ye

& not only Soe but ye Jury dismist & thanked for their pains 
the«?e things provided then wee say common law enjoines the Judges 
to give Judgment exactly according to varditt the which it is well 
Iraown was not done but an injunction laid upon us contrary 
toward it to settle some families upon y't land in three years 
or else to have noe benifet by what was done, now wee demand 
tf this Judgment was not chancery what was it for it is very 
leor it was not common law & wee know of noe other lawes Estab-

such order given forth leagually, for first if the Court did grSB.^ 
him a hearing they granted Smith more than he deserved, for 2^ 
desired a hearing upon the condition aforementioned, but ye 
dition failed therefore if a rehearing was granted it 
more y'n hee desired a thing seldom heard of or can in 
reason be believed 2'ly some things in y't order not ^ 
true, for it saith y't wee weare defendants but we wear not nor \ 
any of us to answer nor never had any summonsis then to answer 
but one ye contrary had liberty from ye goever'n to goe hoiue being 
there but a few daies before y't court telling us there wad noe need 
for us to bee there for Smith had failed in his charge (therefore y't 
order not true) and in another thing alsoe as well as that y't wee 
forbear to mention here beside what hath bin before mentioned the

us uon y't y't order was a false order & contrary to his mind & ye 
mind of most of ye court & promised att his return from hartford 
to put an absolut period to all Smiths stirring in or about y't matter

To our honored Governer Generall of the New Netherlands at

The petition of the Inhabitance of the towne of Hantington. 

Humbly showeth to your honor the great and Insuf arable wrong 
and Iniury that hath been and now is contrifed against us joor 
petitioners by Richard Smith of Kesaquake by his most ininst 
clames upon our lawfull Rights which wee have lawfully purchased 
and possessed about 18 years and have a patten for it given us by 
governer Nicholls In whos : time he never durst haive attempted a 
triall at law with us; but in Governor Lovelace time he commenced 
a suite at Law with us and was cast and from thence he Renioved 
it to the court of Assizes where he was likwise cast and our title 
proved good in the highest court likwise so that seeing he coald by 
no lawful! mence possible contineu his uniust and vexatius suite 
truble and molestation of your petitioners he Attempts a more 
wicked and desperate way to prolong his suits which is by 
contriving and Inventing a most abomenable slander Against our 
Towne and the witnesses that gave evidence in our case making it 
A great part of his work going from place to place to possess people 
with the same and did prefer a petitione to our then Governer 
wher in he did strongly desire another hearing and the Reason he 
did In the said petition Aleage was that he could prove periury on 
the witnesse sum of them or foriury by the Towne of Huntington 
by which both the Jeury and Court was mislead the which thing 
wee most humbly desire he may first doe before we may be 
obliged to any further hearing of the sayd difference, he hath by his 
subtellty and fals Information procured A sentence of court Against 
one Jeremiah Wood which was one of the witness In our cause which 



State Historian. 209 

1674. — Continued. 
is much Admired at not only by all the towne and Country then 
present but all that hears of it we may bouldly say there is not one 
man in Long Island that hath any knowledge of it but doth believe 
that Jerimiah Wood is most horably wronged : but he makes use of 
his great advantage against us your poor petitioners the scout which 
married his own daughter did as we concie've procure such Judges 
to trj the cause as might best suite his fathers end and we make no 
doubt such as his father did apoint. Therefore we most humbly 
desire that there may be first a hearing again of Jerimiah Woods 
cause before such Judges as Mr William T^rance shall have no 

choice of neither may be set as Judge in that cause for we question 

I 

not but we can prove from his own mouth he expects A part of 

that land he molest Huntington for : to have it for his wifes 

portion and so he becomes a party in that cause : we desire your 

bonner to consider the wicked and unrightus ways Smith used 

o further vex and trouble us he did before charge to othere of our 

ritnesses with periury and being siued by them and cast in court 

e makes a publick Acknowledgtt that he had don them wrong and 

nee sees that he cannot go on with his vexatius siute with your 

Btitioners without he slanders the witness he charges the same men 

3 Aquited before he hath made it his common practice to vex and 

olest & threaten Juarimen And Labour to cause the witnesses to

Abstract of a letter from Governor William Coddington of^*^^^^ 
Rhode Island to Governor Andros Congratulating him on his ar- 
rival and Complaining of encroachments by Connecticut. 

The first part is congratulatory, for the Governors safe arrival & 
reducing of New Yorke, desiring a friendly Correspondence & 
Commerce between the Colonyes. 

The next relates to the occasion & time of the first settlement of 
Koade Island, their Endeavors to gain a patent from King Charles 
the first which was obstructed by the breaking out of the Civill 
Warres in England & their obtaining a Charter from his present 
Ma'tie at his Restoura'con wherein they were like to be circumvented 
by Conecticut Agents who thought to hane swallowed up part of 
that Colony within their bounds, their Patent having the first date; 



22-1 Annual Repout of the 

1674.— ContiHwed. 
but upon Complaint was arbitrated betweene the Agents of the two 
Colonyes by the Kings advice & the bounds betweene them stated & 
bj his Ma'ties Graunt determined that Pawcatuck al's Narrigansett 
should be ye bounds l)etweene the two Colonyes. 

And further declares the s'd bounds to be allowed & approved by 
the Kings Comraission'rs, the land betweene which, what those of 
Conec^^i'cutt would imagine to be the Narragansett River they called 
the Kings Province, & betrusted the Jurisdiction, thereof to the 
officers of Roade Island Colony untill the Kings pleasure was 
further knowne, whereupon they had possession of that Jurisdiction 
for ten years at least 

After which Connecticut disturbs one of Road Is'l Townes next 
them & would force them to remove in the winter but tooke their 
promise to submit in the spring & so gott them under them. 

The last su'mer Conecticutt would have forced the Kings Pro- 
vince to come under their Jurisdiction, but for that time were with* 
stood by the Govemo'r of Roade Island & Councell in P'son. 

It was lastly ofiFered by Roade Island that if Conecticutt were not 
satisfyed they would referre it to the Kings determinacon, that 
would not be accepted but they would referre it to the United 
Colonyes which were as to themselves. It was also offered by Roade 
IsM to be referred to his R. H's Governor which they would accept 
of neither. 

So with Civill Expressions Concludes.

The Pl't declares that at his last, being in Boston he was unjusth 
molested arrested & imprisoned by the Deft for the sume of : 1781 
sterling through w'eh unjust molestation the pl't was forced (beiD| 
a stranger there) to Re-unload the vessell of him loaden. w'ch no 
only doth redound to the pl't's great loss <& damage but also breaki 
his <?redit by which hee as a Young Merchant must liue; all w'd 
hee esteemes more than 500 G besides the damage susteined by thi 
sale of his goods here, hee staying soe long until! the place wai 
overstored with all sorts of goods ; as also the hire of the vessel 
the wages & artichalls w'ch likewise doth amount to one hundred 
pound sterling. Wherefore the pl't craves Judgement against the 
Defend't for the paying the above mentioned sumes amonntin^

Vppon Martins Vineyard this 12th Aprill 1676. 
Deservedly honored Sir ; I have written to yo'r honor hy Stephen 
Hassy, the w'ch I hope is come to hand ; and by way of Boston 
which I doubt not will be carefully sent to botli which I humbly 
referre yo'r honor, not presuming in the least but that they shall be 
considered according to the worth of the contents: my meaning, 
therefore, now is to crave patience to reade & weigh the ensueinge 
lines in a special manner w^iereby unto your honour I shall be much 
obliged : In KMl I had a graunt of Mr James Forrett Agent to the 
Earl of Sterling for these lies and I forthwith endeauored to to 
obtaine the Indian right of them : Mr Richard N'ynes, Steward 
general to Sir Ferdynando Gorges, hearing of it interrupted shewing 
me his masters pattent & his power insomuch that I was convynced 
by hiui that Gorges who was then gouernor of the provynce of 
Maine th * ; really, Sir, Ferdynandos right And for a some 
money did obtaine from said Vynes a graunt allso: It came so to 
pass that Mr Forrett went suddenly for England before he shewed 
me his masters pattent, whome afterwards I never saw : some years 
after this camo oner one Mr Forrester, furnished with power who

was here with me, & told me he wonid clcare upp all things & th 
I should he one of his Connscll, but he from here went to Lor 
Island & from thence to the Dutch where the governor put him i 
prison and sent him a prisoner to holland as I heard for I neve 
saw him more: Soe we remained under Gorges, having no newe 
of either Lord proprietor, till his Majestjs Commissionen 
came ouer and then Mr Archdale sent me printed paper wherebj 
his Ma'tie had bj his * the commissioners most stronglj 
confirmed Ferdynando Gorges, Esquire to be the Lord of the pro- 
vince of Maine, of w'cli Xantukkitt & this be a pte : withall ba 
wrote me that Generall Nycoll did clayme these lies but at theiw 
first meeting that would be taken of A : now after this GenenB 
Nycoll wrote me that Mr Archdale haveing Gorges pattent for to 
present, and he not haveing the said Sterlings, the Kings commis- 
sioners referred the decision to his Ma'tie : whereof he had not an] 
intelligence ; but a little before he went to England : GenerJ 
Nycoll did acknowledge that the power of these Hands was prop< 
in the lieires of Sir Ferdynando Gorges: 1 have the testymony i 
the Generall Court of boston for it : w'ch Court sent to the Genii 
men of the provynce of Maine whose answer was, That it was 
my Isle &c. Now, after all this Co(nt)est Collonell Lovelace, 1 
sends for me in a loueing manner, to come to York to show by wh 
ty tie I held those Hands : whereuppon I gave him to vnderstand 
is aboue written : And at length went to him & showed him a 
graunt which he approved of and the printed paper from hisMa^'ti* 
at which he stumbled very ranch; allso I showed him what Genen 
Nycoll had writte nie of his not being infonned of what his Mat 
had done : thereat he stumbled very much likewise then I asked hi 
yf he had the Lord Sterlings patent by him, he said noe : I answers

then I was at a losse. I sent to Captaine Nycoll and acquainted him 

with our discourse and prayed him to search in matters of Long Hand 

to see yf he could not find tlie date of Lord Sterlings pattent'yf not 

1 conld do nothing at York, which he did finde & it was more 

intient than Gorges : yf not I had nothing but a * Elizabeth

I Gorges Gouemment as 1 had to obey it : I meant ? from his 

Ma'tie Except Euents ? Compelled : allsoe that his honour & 

I did agree Yppon in acknowledgement w'ch by my graunt 

from Forrett I was to pay yearly to the Lord Sterling or his 

Successors, a new Charter & liberties in it made : grounded 

Vppon ray first graunt & the resignation of Lord Sterlings heires 

to his Royal highness &c thankfully by me accepted there & by 

all at home & allso at Nantukkett so far as I know : the Generall 

Court vnanimously * have made according to liberties graunted 

without am * the next year we went to Nantukkett where 

* they would not proceed in the way we beganne the year before : 

After very much debate wee came away resolving speedyly for 

reply o'r servis to the Goemor thereabout, but Mathew being vppon 

the way who was furnished to pay the acknowledgment mett with 

newesthat York was taken by the Dutch : then I, hearing Captaine 

Nycolls was well so I certified him at laedg of every thing from 

w'ch I had an answere to full satisfaction in every pertycular : And 

lastly by o'r applycation to yo'r honour I did & doe still rest 

sattisfied therein to the full it being absolutely just in my 

understanding & such as have seen it that are very judicious : But

tending himselfe Deputy Governor, and the last tli * was he 
Comaunded me to desier the Enemy to stay (so?) long and to stope 
them untill the Articles was drawne, but they was att the turnpike, 
when I went out of the gate, and pressing forward to the gate, I 
was in the midle of them ; and I thought it my best way to get 
from them then to Enter with them. This is the greatest crime

us doe very well know, as by Information from others, who have 
declared the same unto (us) : Wee doe find that the severall sumes 
in the Account produced to us taken out of her bookes by William 
Bogardus the publicke Notary, were for the greatest part payments 
made by husband & selfe, to those entrusted by the late Governor 
CoUonell Louelace, for the which the Receits have beene produced 
& the rest were sumes promised to bee allowed off by the said Gov- 
ernor the which together doe with in a very small matter (viz that 
is to say with the sume of 11. gs. lO.st. sewant) balance the Accounts 
due for their farming of the said Excise : Wee doe tlierefore 
recomend the same to yo'r honor for voV favourable Allowance, 
being fully persuaded of tlie reality & truth thereof. 

As to the Acc't of Peter Nys who was for some time also one of 
the Farmers of tlve said Excise, the same being likewise by yo'r 
Honor referred unto us, we have view'd & examined them & doe 
find that the sould'yers debts to him in the lyst produced unto us,

a mistake for N. B. never coiiseuted (to the last) to give other than 
his owne p'sonall security (of w'ch iiee can give good p'fe) to this 
not being by consent. N. B. holds not himsclfe bound to gine 
other security then his owne bond w'ch hee is still ready to doe. 
then it may be demanded why N. B. did not appeale to this, I 
answer that he intended to doe but the Gou'mor would first know of 
Mr Mayor what had passed who (by mistake) said that what was 
sett down in the order was by Consent, w'ch Caused that the 
Gou'rnor (at that time) would Conclude upon nothing of an appeale 
it being (as hee was Informed) a mutuall agreem't, but I Informed 
the Gou'rnor of the error Mr Mayor was in (as really hee was in) 
so the thing lay till now, that fraucis Kichardson hath Causelously 
& surreptitiously gotten an order toi)utt in other security w'th 
myself 

2 this last order was pru'ced [procured] & gotten out without the 
least notice giuen to N. B. that ho might bee there (by somons) to 
speake for himselfe in case he had any tiling to alleage & tis a Rule 
in the Courts of Justice that the defendant should be heard before 
hee bee Condemned through meere suggestions of a playntiflE 

3 If N. B. should p'forme this order (w'ch was not by Consent as 
alleaged) hee cutts himselfe off from ever having a full hearing 
of the case w'ch he desires there may bee being that hee doubts 
not of making it out how he had suffitient order to act as hee did.

th this volume are exhausted the Colonial muster rolls of 
8 who were in the service of the Province, from the capture 
3w York by the English in 1664 to the outbreak of the Revo- 
a in 1775. In this interval occurred many events of great his- 
al character, importance and value. The Stuart dynasty ended 
Dgland and was succeeded by the house of Hanover, which 
reigns. In the province of New York beginning with the 
er rolls that appear in this volume. Colonel Thomas Dongan 
appointed Governor of the province, the first Assembly under 
igh rule was held, and the charter of liberty was adopted ; the 
ince was divided into ten counties : New York, Westchester, 
hess, Albany, Ulster, Orange, Richmond, Kings, Queens and 
►Ik ; the first Colonial post-oiRce was established in New York 
?h 2, 1686 ; the following year, July 22, the city of Albany was 
•porated, whose charter was published four days later ; in 1687 
'rench invaded Seneca County, an act that was followed by the 
invasion of Canada by the Colonists — war being declared 
een England and France in May, 1689. Then follows Fronte- 
i expeditions against the English Colonies, the destruction of 
nectady, the French retreat, and the failure of the English

expedition that pursued Frontenac's army. Governor Leisle 
refusal to turn over the fort at New York to Governor Sloughtei 
representative, Eichard Ingoldesby ; his arrest and imprisonme) 
trial and execution for treason, formed the most exciting events i 
the province during the year 1691. 

During the next sixteen years the province was in a state of ni 
rest, because of threatened French invasions, expeditions agaiu 
Canada, troubles with the Iroquois, and the Negro insurrection ii 
New York city. Within the next twenty years, the first newsptpci 
was published in the province, the New York Guzette, by William 
Bradford, October, 1725 ; the boundary with Connecticut was estab 
lished ; the New York Weekly Jounial was issued by John Petei 
Zenger Nov. 5, 1733, followed a year later by his arrest for libel, 
and his acquittal after an imprisonment of thirty-five weeks. The 
second Negro plot, which had for its object the destruction of New 
York City, disturbed the province in March, 1741. And in 174J 
began the war of the Austrian succession between England and 
France. 

Ten years later assembled the Convention to consider a Colonia 
Confederacy, the articles of union being drawn by Benjamin Frank 
lin. The French and Indian War gave the Colonists their first rea 
experience in what was to prove to be a long and sanguinary coi 
test. The Sons of Liberty were first organized in New York Cit 
in 1765, and in that city October 7 of that year, gathered t1 
Colonial Convention that condemned the Stamp Act. From tl 
time on, to Lexington and Concord, the people of the province w 
in a constant state of disquiet, unrest and uncertainty. 

Among these muster rolls will be found many interesting ite 
such as : the pay rolls of privateers ; muster rolls of Ulster CoH 
of 1^86-1687; a list of Militia officers who were stationec5

All the above ment^'oned persons have lawfully excused them-] 
selves except George Klock, who says that he is free by an act 
the Assembly because he is a Miller and his son George he h 
back in the Alarm till the second Day on which Day he came with 
the Parcel of Indians he being asked what kept him so long^ 
answer'd that he waited for the Indians of which he was to be 
Commander for which Reason I think that I may fine him as ewj 
long I intend to do. 

As for those which have brought in complaints against me, tbey 
have been at Herkemans also in the Alarm but were not willing to 
do any Duty but separated themselves from the Company in » 
much that the Company was continually dispersed that we coald 
not so much hardly as mount a Guard on Monday Night.

led if possible into Nine Companies, and one Captain, Two 

(tenants, one Ensign, Three Serjeants, Three Corporals and a

ioned enquirys can be made for filling up the Inferior Vacancys
