The extensive use of this superior Furnace in the United States has acquired for it a repviKation too well Rnd favor- 
ably known to need more at this time than to call the special attention of those in want of th? best possible means of 
warming dweUing-i, public buildings, &c., with pure, fresh, healthful heat (free from that scorcXing, dry, red-hot iron 
heat, and co-il gas, so common to hot-air furnaces), to an examination of .this superior inventioii, which repre.-ents a 
cluster of cones, or tapering Radiators, over a broad, flaring, shallow fire-pot. These cones being la^ge at the base and 
small at the top, se • " as»s back in contact

The only positively reliable Safe, for all emergencies. Has been 
tested beside the Salamander, and found superior. 

Remember, that, when the contents of a safe are burned, it is always by the heat 
lieing conducted through the door and door-way. On the Marland Patent the wood 
casing and contents of the Safe are eniirely surrounded by the best non-conducting 
material — the door and door-way being as proof against fire as the walls are, which 
is all that can be obtained by any contrivance, and which is not the case on any 
other Safe built. 

The Marland'8 Patent are the most thorough built and best finished Safe io the 

On all other Safes the inside wood-casing and contents are joined directly on to the 
outside by cast-ir-in plates and bolts, which, as they are constructed, form the best 
means for conducting heat to them, when exposed to fire, that could be devised. 

Safes built to order of any size, without extra cost.

SEP ^ 19:^ 

In collecting the information for the Register for 1862, circulars have been sent to our regular cor- 
respondents in every town in the State, from nearly every one of whom answers have been promptly 

Many other communications have also been received, both from public institutions and private 
individuals, with regard to changes to be made. 

It will be seen that some of the information usually given in the book has been condensed, and some 
unimportant matters omitted. This has been done to give space, within reasonable limits of the book, 
for the very full account of what is now, and has been for the past year, engrossing the public attention 
more than any other subject — perhaps more than all others. We scarcely need say that we refer to the 
rebellion, which is now fast being suppressed, and the active part which Massachusetts is taking in 
that suppression. 

The great amount of information which we are giving in these pages will hardly be appreciated as it 
should be, we fear, unless we call attention to the fact that nearly all the book is set in a much smaller 
type than usual, giving a great amount of reading to a very small space. This is particularly tnie 
with regard to the Military Department. 

In our historical matter we have endeavored to be accurate, but to give a picture of the times, rather 
than statistical information. In the regimental narratives we present the most accurate history pub- 
lished, of each of the three months' regiments, and each company, from their leaving Massachusetts 
until their rettirn ; and the outlines of the history of each of the Massachusetts regiments nojy in the 
field, from their formation until the first of January. 

In compiling the military information, we have been aided by several gentlemen connected with that 
branch of the public service, and in preparing the lists of members of the companies have had free ac- 
cess to the rolls in the office of the Adjutant General. 

To prepare entirely accurate lists of names from those rolls was found to be impossible ; and this is 
not at all surprising, when we consider that they were made up from reports of the several hun- 
dred different companies now in the field, prepared by persons, some of whom, of course, were unused 
to such business, and do not realize the importance of having names and residences full and correct, 
and written very plainly. Soldiers are, naturally and properly, thinking more of what shall be done 
to perfect themselves and their comrades in the art of war, than in accurately recording their names. 

To perfect the information, as far as possible, without too much delay, we sent printed lists to 
the orderly of each company, — except some of the most distant, whom we could not, possibly, have 
obtained returns from in season, — and from nearly all, replies h^ve been received, enabling us to make 
very many important corrections, and also to note many changes that have occurred since the regiments 
left the State, such as killed, wounded, prisoners and missing in battle, promoted, discharged, &c., &c. 

As the result of the great amount of labor and care which has been bestowed on this work, the pub- 
lishers feel warranted in saying that it is, doubtless, by far the fullest and most accurate account of the 
Massachusetts military now in the field that has yet been offered to the public. 

The publishers renew th^ir thanks to tkftse-who.-.haYe -Assisted in the compilation of the work, and 
would suggest that any person dis^covering aij error: la the book wiU confer a favor by notifying them of 
it, that it may be corrected in future editions'.

The intention of this Institution is to secure a home and a school for suoh girls as 
may be presented to the magistrates of the State appointed for that purpose, as va- 
grants, perversely obstinate, deprived of the control and culture of their natural guar- 
dians, are guilty of petty offences, and exposed to a life of crime and wretchednpss. 

There are now, January, 1862, five separate families, accommodating 150 children. 


Miss Caroline Plummer, of Salem, v.ho died in May, 1854, made a liberal bequest of 
about $25,000 for the purpose of founding a BoyS' Reform School for the city of Salem,

servy, of Salem ; William \. Bowditch, of Boston ; Joseph Andrews, David Nichols,

Andrews. Secretary and Treasurer; William I. Bowditch, Joseph Andrews, Eleazer

pose. The fuud, Jan. 1, 1862, was $35,000.

EEBELLIO]^ OF 1861, 




Puritanism versus Chivalry. 

In the time of Elizabeth, the great defender of Protestantism against Catholic am- 
bition, the middling merchants of the English cities, and the small proprietors in the 
country, in their religious movements separated from the Church of England._ In their 
modes of worship they appealed less to the senses and more to the understanding ; they 
sought the spirit rather than the forms of Christianity — a purer faith, a simpler worship, 
and a more liberal system of church government. From this they took the name of 

Opposed to them were the Nobility, the Court, the Prelacy, and all those who claimed 
the patronage of the state and the leadership of social circles and of great enterprises — 
the great conservatives of the empire. These religious differences entered into politics. 
They gave direction to the policies of the state. They finally broke out into open war, 
into revolution. The first party took the name of Roundhead, the other that of Cava- 
lier; and the two parties are known to-day under the name of Whig and Tory. That 
war ended in the death of Charles I., and the elevation of Cromwell as Dictator over 
the Commonwealth. These two religious-political powers, with their diverse constitu- 
tional structures of intellect, sent their several representatives to this country. The 
Cavalier element settled at Jamestown in 1607, and the Puritan at Plymouth in 1620. 
The first came under the patronage of the state, as visionary adventurers in quest of 
new fields of gain ; the second came as a sect proscribed and persecuted by government, 
to establish liberal institutions and religious liberty. 
The Cavaliers. 

The Cavaliers sought wealth and political power. Their religion and their state, 
their social and educational institutions, were patterned upon those of England. They 
carried their settlements, their principles, and their love of lofty cheer, into Kentucky, 
and into Southern States. Loving wealth, ease, social distinctions, and political power, 
they naturally fell into the manner and the state of the great proprietor. Their char- 
acteristics followed their enterprise. The same year that the Pilgrims landed at Plym- 
outh, they adopted a system of servile labor; a system in harmony with their ideas of 
the political and social relation ; a system which soon came to be considered as the basis 
of their monied prosperity. It has grown with their growth, and strengthened with 
their strength, until Virginia has given tone, character and institutions to fifteen sov- 
ereign States and to ten millions of people. She has been the mother of Presidents, 
as well as of States, and has achieved grand results in the career of empire. 
The Puritans. 

The Puritans, rigid, self-denying, industrious and enterprising, settled in a wilder- 
ness, combatted resolutely a barren soil and an inhospitable climate, put their own 
hands to the plough, built school houses and churches, opened roads through the forests 
and upon the seas, pushed forward through the Middle and Western States, carrying 
their ideas, virtues, enterprises and general prosperity with them; increased their 
wealth and numbers, enlarged the territory of their influence into a great empire, 
declared always for free labor, for the dignity of labor, for religious and political lib- 
erty, until, by the superior innovating vigor of the Puritan intellect, though Virginia 
was settled first, they became the controlling intellectual power of the country. These 
elements culminated in all their glory in the government and institutions of Massa- 
chusetts. In her career of empire, she extended her ideas, institutions and charac- 
teristics over nineteen States and twenty millions of people. 



From these two diverging streams of colonization have arisen two systems of labor, 
two tendencies in political development, two states of social and religious culture. 
These powers have always been more or less in contention with each other, which con- 
tentions were plainly seen during the Colonial period, the Revolutionary and Consti- 
tutional periods, and have now broken out in open hostility in what may be termed the 
period of the Rebellion. 

Massachusetts and Virginia. 

Though pursuing different paths to greatness, Massachusetts and Virginia have stood 
side by side in all the great contests of the nation. The oppressions of England weighed 
heavily upon both colonies. This became a bond of sympathy, and they cordially com- 
bined to avert a common danger. The Revolution was commenced in Massachusetts, 
under the patriots Adams, Hancock and Otis. She was the first to spring to the res- 
cue, the first to spend her treasure, and pour out her blood for the defeat of a common 
enemy. Virginia, if not as prompt and eflficient in furnishing substantial means, pro- 
duced the " man for the hour," which gave her a leading influence in the revolutionary 
struggle. After the successful close of the greatest revolution of history, the Consti- 
tution was adopted upon principles first practically enunciated under Puritan influences 
in Massachusetts, first foreshadowed in design in the confederation for defence be- 
tween the colonies of Massachusetts Bay, Plymouth, Connecticut, and New Haven. 
The North has always attempted to abide by the spirit of that Constitution, and history 
will aver that she has attempted most faithfully to carry out the glorious doctrines of 
the Declaration of Independence in the spirit of JeS"erson of Virginia, and the Fathers 
of the Republic. 

From the close of the Revolution, more than ever before, Massachusetts led Vir- 
ginia, in art, education, manufactures, commerce, and in all the essentials of substantial 
wealth. In the great political discussions of 1820. these two antagonistic elements 
fought a hard battle for the maintenance of their peculiar ideas, and Liberty hoped that 
she had gained a permanent advantage in the Missouri Compromise. The North, in 
her expanding trade and commerce, sought the aid of a national bank, a careful regu- 
lation of the currency system of the country, and a protective tariff" for her industry. 
To the latter, the South objected, and South Carolina raised the standard of nullifica- 
tion — a heresy that had the destruction of the Union as a logical result ; but the quick 
thought and iron will of Jackson terrified the monster into submission by the utterance 
of those memorable words, "The Federal Union, it must be preserved." 

Their Contest. 
At this time the results of free thought, justice, religion, sound popular education, 
industry and enterprise had grown to great stature in the North — they could not be 
quiet. The South began to fear and protest against encroachments upon their in- 
terests. Earnest men and women, actuated by the same zeal that moved Knox, 
Hampden and Pym against church and state in England, talked, wrote, voted, and 
acted within what they' deemed constitutional limits, to rid themselves of all responsi- 
bility for the greatest of our national misfortunes. The aristocracy, more than the 
people of the South, finding itself likely to be outstripped in all the essentials of na- 
tional power, made demands upon the government, which demands were belligerent in 
tone, and threatened the destruction of the Union if they were not conceded. To 
quiet them, a large share of the government patronage and political power was given 
to them. For the sake of peace, compromises were entered into. They demanded 
the rendition bill of 18 JO; it was granted. They desired the repeal of the Missouri 
Compromise ; it was repealed. Successive national congresses were elected, and com- 
mittees were formed in both branches favorable to the Virginian rather than to the Mas- 
sachusetts Idea. Presidents were elected, who, for the sake of peace, were compelled 
to look with more favor upon them than their just rights and real importance de- 
manded. These aristocrats, not the people, plotted, counter-plotted to maintain the 
balance of power, hoping to keep it by political manoeuvres, when it could be retained 
only by educational institutions, wealth, trade, commerce, manufactures, and the 
consequent increase of population. These agitations of sentiment and opinion soon 
extended themselves more decidedly into politics ; Massachusetts always taking the 
lead, with Virginia and South Carolina, two States pledged to the same Idea, in the 
opposition. In 1856, the Republican party, a party embodying the Idea of Massachu- 
setts, consummated a sufficient working power to hope to elect a Republican President. 
His election was confidently predicted. The South was alarmed, and, as she had often 
done, boldly threatened the dismemberment of the Union. The Republicans were 
defeated, and a Democratic President quieted agitation in a measure ; but all action did 
not cease. The moral principle deemed to be involved on the one side, and the personal 
and pecuniary interests on the other, stimulated the opposing elements to continued 
activity. Massachusetts and Virginia, as the exponents of the democratic and aristo- 
cratic principles, were pitted against each other in open contest in Kansas and Ne- 
braska. The election of 1860 approached. It had been for some time evident that, by the 
disintegration of old parties upon the new issues which had arisen, Massachusetts would 
soon elect her President. The North had long been consolidating upon her Idea. The 
South had long been protesting. The two sections seemed to be withdrawing from for- 
mer intimate relations, and congregating around their two diff'erent centres. The cen- 
tral ideas of each were deeper than any "peculiar institution " entertained by either. 
Their peculiar institutions were only accessories, adjuncts, logical results of their dif- 


ferent ideas ; and these ideas had their origin far back in English history, and have 
grown into greater distinctness and division here because of the latitude given to each 
in widely separated geographical positions. In 1860, Lincoln was elected President ; 
the first President that had been elected purely upon the principles that based the con- 
flicts between the people of England and James II. and Charles I.; the principles of 
universal liberty, equality, toleration, self-government, against their unjust and demor- 
alizing opposites. 

In Great Britain, from Elizabeth Tudor to Victoria, the Cavalier or Tory element has 
held the reins and the patronage of the government, save during the Commonwealth 
under Cromwell, when the Puritans had the power. Still, thiit aristocracy has suffered 
a gradual and continual encroachment from the democracy, in proportion as education 
and morality have increased among the middle masses of the people ; and one by one the 
great prerogatives of the Court and Crown have been torn away and made to sub- 
serve the interests of the people. Now, true to their ancient instincts and hereditary 
policy, under the Tory lead of the Earl of Derby, and Earl Russell, and Palraerston, 
they hold the official action of the government, and subject the movement of the press 
to the decided advantage of the Aristocracy first established at Jamestown, and to the 
decided prejudice of the Democracy first founded at Plymouth. Under the lead of 
Bright, Cobden, and Brougham in England, of far-sighted and patriotic statesmen in 
the United States, Democracy can only hope for peace and the triumph of its principles 
in the control and the sovereignty of the two great Saxon constitutional governments 
of history. 

Development of the Conspiracy. 
This is a rebellion of the politicians and aristocracy in the slave interest, and not of 
the people. There are two classes in the South, the slaveholding aristocracy, and the 
people. The poor whites have but little political significance. The aristocracy main- 
tain the traditionary memories of Virginia; political power is their ambition; they 
have the wealth, education, social culture, and the habit of public life to help them in 
retaining their long-held political ascendancy. They have become attached to this as- 
cendancy, and will not yield it without a struggle. The masses of the people are be- 
ginning to know their political significance, and in the end will overturn the aristocracy. 
The open war between the Puritan and Cavalier, between Massachusetts and Virgi ia, 
between the great Aristocracy and the great Democracy of the Union, has commenced. 
In the Presidential election of 1860, the Aristocracy met with a Waterloo defeat, and, to 
recover their old ascendancy, organized Rebellion and commenced civil war. It is the 
progress of this Rebellion that we would outline. 

The Conspiracy in 1832. 
It actually commenced in 1832-3, in South Carolina. She claimed that Jefferson 
maintained the right of a State to judge of the constitutionality of a law, and to nul- 
lify the law if unconstitutional. In her opposition to the tarift' of '28 South Carolina 
based her action upon this principle. She alleged that this tariff increased the cost of 
living in the South, and aided the domestic manufacturers of the North. Hayiie took 
up her cause in the Senate, and was defeated by the irresistible logic of Webster. South 
Carolina called a convention of delegates to consider the crisis; Virginia, by a vote of 
one hundred and fifty-four to sixty-eight, passed a vote of nullification ; Alabama and 
Georgia heartily seconded South Carolina ; but North Carolina stood firm for the Union. 
The nullification convention of the States met, Hayne was chosen chairman, the tariffs 
of '28 and '32 were denounced as unconstitutional ; it was voted that no appeal to the 
Supreme Court of the United States should be listened to ; and that attempts to enforce 
the laws should be resisted by force. The Governor of South Carolina prepared to en- 
force resistance. Mr. Calhoun, Vice-President of the United States, resigned. But 
President Jackson declared nullification to be revolution, and that the Union should be 
preserved. He prepared to enforce his decrees by arms — the nullifiers saw the hope- 
lessness of their cause, and concluded to submit, afA, as far as possible, undo the work 
which they had done. The decision of the President saved the Union. 

But the feeling of envy and hatred toward the North was not dead. Free labor, 
capital, and ideas, were gaining an ascendancy in the Union that was dangerous to 
Southern principles. Ttie balance of power must be retained. From 1832 to 1850 the 
two sections kept alive a bitter sectional contest. The Southern leaders looked about 
them, and found in Mexico a means to help them to retain the balance of power. For 
a frivolous pretext war was made upon her, and Texas, with a large portion of Mexican 
territory, became a part of the United States. Slave States were provided for from this 
territory, and this accomplished one more result for the Southern aristocracy. 

As another act in the great programme, the Fugitive Slave bill of 1850 was 
passed. In this the South was again triumphant, and the North indignant. The peo- 
ple, questioning the constitutional provisions for the rendition of fugitives, declared 
that they would not become the slave-catchers of the South. They carried their oppo- 
sition into the press, the pulpit, the courts, the streets. Notwithstanding this, their 
reverence for law was such, that in many instances the provisions of the law were per- 
mitted to be executed. The discussions of agitators upon this law widened the breach 
between the North and the South. 

The progress of the rebellion again appeared in Congress in 1854. Douglass intro- 
duced a bill providing that any State applying for admission to the Federal Union might 
couie in with or without slavery, as her constitution might provide; also that the 
people of 'he territories might legislate for themselves, taking away the power of 
Congress to legislate for them. These were the State and Squatter Sovereignty doctrines. 



It was a virtual abrogation of the Missouri Compromise. The bill passed — the North 
was alarmed. The battle was commenced in Kansas and Nebraska. The South poured 
in her armed men, the North her men armed with the rifle and the plough ; and, between 
them, Kansas became a field of blood. 

This prepared the way for the Presidential election of 1856. Both parties seized upon 
the anti-slavery sentiment, and moulded it to party purposes. But the anti-slavery 
party had become so strong that the election of Fremont was confidently predicted. 
Alarmed at this prospect, the South openly declared that she should oppose the Govern- 
ment in that event, and prevent the inauguration of the President thougti constitutionally 
elected. Fremont was defeated. The election of one more favorable to Southern in- 
terests averted for a time the calamity of civil war. Though the election of Buchanan 
quieted public agitation upon the " irrepressible conflict," the moral principle and pe- 
cuniary interest deemed to be involved on the one side and the other kept up the con- 
troversy, yet it was more confined and subdued. 

The Presidential election of 1860 approached. The democratic convention was held 
at Charleston, The ultra Southerners took an extreme position upon the slavery ques- 
tion. The moderate democrats of the North could not sustain them. The party split, 
and the ultraists nominated Breckenridge, and the seceding faction nominated Doug- 
lass as candidates for the Presidency. The Republican convention nominated Lin- 
coln, of Illinois ; and the constitutional Union men. Bell, of Tennessee. The campaign 
was exciting, one full of party animosity, and hard fo\ight. In the result, Lincoln had 
one hundred and eighty, Douglass twelve, Bell thirty-nine, and Breckenridge seventy- 
two of the votes of the Electoral College. The Republican candidate was declared 
elected President of the United States. The South, all the time protesting, declared 
secession to be her policy, forgetting the duty of the minority to yield ; and, aided by those 
in the confidence of the government, she commenced plotting for rebellion and civil war. 

The Conspiracy in 1860. 

The work of disintegration soon commenced. South Carolina taking the initiatory. 
November 5, 1860, her Governor issued a secession message, and counselled the Legis- 
lature 10 consider the crisis, and prepare to defy the power of the United States. 
December 20th her convention unanimously passed an ordinance of secession. The 
fire, once lighted, spread rapidly throughout the Cotton States. January 9th Mis!<is- 
sippi followed in her footsteps; on the 11th, Alabama; the r2th, Florida ; the 19th, 
Georgia; the 28th, Louisiana ; and February 1st, Texas, — fill passed ordinances of 
secession; thus dissolving their political connection with the United States of Ameiica. 

November 9th and 11th, the senators and representatives of South Carolina in Con- 
gress withdrew, and on January 21st those of Mississippi, Georgia, and Florida resigned 
their seats; and on February 5th all those of Louisiana, save Bouligny, withdrew. 

The process of dissolution was not confined to the secession of States and the with- 
drawal of members from Congress. Members of the Cabinet residing in the Southern 
States considered their allegiance to their States superior to that to the United States. 
December lOlh, Cobb, of Georgia, Secretary of the Treasury, and the 29th, Floyd, of 
Virginia, Secretary of War, resigned their places in the Cabinet. Through their un- 
paralleled treachery to the Government that had given them the highest confidence, 
they had so crippled the forces of the Union, in the robbing of money and arms, that 
the interests of secession were assisted nearly into an equality of power with the rest of 
the Union. 

The work thus commenced was not to be half-way — the position taken was to be 
sustained by arras. In December, South Carolina's Legislature authorized the seizure 
of all arsenals, arms, and forts within her limits. January 3d, Governor Brown, of 
Georgia, ordered the seizure of Forts Pulaski and Jackson, at Savannah; on the 4th 
the authorities of Alabama seized Fort Morgan ; on the 10th tt e authorities of Mis is- 
sippi seized the forts and other United State's property within her limits; on the 12ih 
the Navy Yard and property at Pensecola were taken ; on the 28ih the rebels of Louis- 
iana took the United States revenue cutter, and other property, and the money in the 
mint at New Orleans; and, to complete this list of plundering, General Twiggs of 
Texas surrendered the United States forces and property in his hands into the power 
of the rebels. The forts seized were armed and manned, the arsenals were robbed, 
the militia of the cotton States was called out, and every material preparation made 
to withstand any attempt of the Union for self-preservation. Legislatures were con- 
vened, minute men organized, mass meetings held, the suspension of banks was 
legalized, rnillions were voted to carry out the nefarious designs of the secessionists; 
Southern rights associations were organized, Northern men were daily arrested, Union 
men were awed into silence, the levying of executions issuing from the United States 
courts was prevented by Legislatures, religious conferences passed resolutions favoring 
secession, and Palmetto and State flags were flying everywhere, and everywhere the 
Stars and Stripes were hauled down and trailed in the dust. The news of secession 
•was hailed with acclamations of delight; and, to close this saturnalia, two hundred and 
sixteen of the patients in the United States Hospital at New Orleans were removed to 
make room for the secession troops of Louisiana. Theft was honored, robbery justified, 
and inhumanity to the sick became a public virtue ; law, order, peace, brotherly luve patri- 
otism, and respect for historical memories, all declined to their confounding contraries. 

Among the leading men, the Governor of Florida, Governor Moore of Alabama, 
Letcher of Virginia, and Moore of Louisiana, Cobb, Johnson, and Floyd, in the Cab- 
inet, senators Clingman of North Carolina and Toombs of Georgia, the Governors 


of Georgia, Tennessee, South Carolina, and Kentucky, and Barnwell, Orr, and Adams, 
the three South Carolina commissioners to Washington, and Ex-Governor Moorehead, 
of Kentucky, Davis, Beauregard, and a host of others, leading men, all honorable men 
in the South, men nourished into growth and power by the Union, now turned their 
faces and their swords against that Union, to destroy it. i /. j . 

Not all, however, was rotten in Denmark. Governor Hicks of Maryland refused to 
convene the Legislature, and so, also, did Governor Houston of Texas. Andrew John- 
son of Tennessee raised his voice against the madness of secession, and Cnttenaen 
of Kentucky used his character and eloquence to withstand the tide; and seven in the 
Florida convention, seventeen in the Louisiana, and thirty-nine in the Alabama con- 
vention, voted against the ordinance of secession. Crittenden, in the Senate, intro- 
duced compromise measures, but they failed to meet with general approval. Boteler, 
in the House, introduced a resolution calling for a Peace Convention of all the States ; 
it was called, but the efforts of that convention proved a failure. 

The secessionists would not be conciliated ; they would have disunion ; and in spite 
of all the efforts of eminent men, the patriotic appeals of a large class of conservatives 
distinguished for the moderation of their temper and the dignity of their character, 
and the wise deliberations of peace conventions, seven States and four millions of 
people were drawn into the whirlpool of secession. Congiess met, and adjourned 
again, unable to do anything save leave the fate of the Union in the hands of the 
incoming Administration. 

President Lincoln's Inaugural. 

The fourth of March approached, the day that was to see the departure of an old, 
and the advent of a new Administration in the midst of pending serious national 
calamities. The opinions of the incoming Executive were looked for with the most 
intense interest, — as was his progress watched from Springfield, Illinois, to \^ ash- 
ington. In Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, he had intimation of a plot for his assassi- 
nation while passing through Baltimore. At the earnest solicitation of his friends, 
he made a hurried departure from Philadelphia, and a disguised passage through 
Baltimore, thus cheating the minions of secession in that city of a coveted opportunity 
to make themselves infamous. He arrived in Washington Feb. 23d. Upon the ^th of 
March, A. D. 1861, Abraham Lincoln, of Illinois, was duly sworn in as President ot the 
United States, for four years from that date. The ceremony was solemn and impressive 
in the extreme. Humors of revolt, of assassination, of a destruction of the Capital on 
that day, were rife, which put the Executive authorities upon their guard. General 
Scott, the great soldier and the firm and faithful patriot, so organized his forces and 
disposed them throughout the city, and in the vicinity of the capital, thaiassassmation 
was improbable. Thus the barbarism of those in the interest of secession compelled 
the capital of the Great Republic to assume the appearance of a feudal city a thousand 
years before, when fear and the sword ruled, instead of justice and moral dignity of 
character. The ceremonies were completed without disaster or crime, and his inaugural 
was deUvered from the balcony of the Capitol. Every man North and South looked for 
each word with deepest interest, for iu that they saw would be foreshadowed the new 
policies that were to deal with and master the fierce political and revolutionary elements 
of the day. We will state his most important positions. 
His Position. 
He said, at the outset, " I have no purpose, directly or indirectly, to interfere with 
the institution of slavery in the States where it exists," and affirmed the right of each 
State to control its own domestic institutions according to its own judgment. He re- 
assured the people that the prosperity, peace, and security of no section was to be en- 
dangered by the incoming Administration, and assured all the States of protection 
under the Constitution. The obligation to abide by the Constitution in the rendition 
of fugitives was strongly asserted, and amendments to the laws under which they were 
to be rendered up were suggested. The disruption of the Union was formidably at- 
tempted, but he held that the Union was perpetual, and that the Constitution contained 
no provision for its own termination, and that it was impossible to destroy the Union, 
save by some action not contemplated in the Constitution. The Union was held as 
older than the Constitution ; — as formed by the Articles of Association of 1774, 
nearly matured in the Declaration of Independence in 1776, further matured in the 
Articles of Confederation of 1778, and finally perpetually completed in the adoption of 
the Constitution in 1787. Therefore it follows that any resolves or ordinances to the 
effect of dissolution are void ; any acts of violence, in any State, against the authority 
of the United States, are insurrectionary or revolutionary. In bis view, he considered 
the Union unbroken, and said, " I shall take care, as the Constitution itself enjoins me, 
that the laws of the Union shall be faithfully executed in all the States; and this I 
shall do, unless my rightful masters, the American people, shall withhold the requisi- 
tion, or in some authoritative manner direct the contrary." He trusted that this would 
not be regarded as a menace, but only as a declared purpose of the Union to maintain 
itself. He said that in doing this " there should be no bloodshed, unless it was forced 
upon the national authority." He asserted that the power given to him " should be 
used to hold, occupy, and possess the property and places belonging to the government, 
and collect the duties and imposts;" that beyond this there should be "no invasion, no 
using of force against or among the people anywhere." Obnoxious officers were not to 
be forced upon the people ; the mails were to be furnished to all parts of the Union, 



unless repelled ; and this course was to be pursued, unless experience showed that a 
modification would be proper. He said nothing to those seeking to destroy the Union, 
but appealed strongly to the patriotism of those who loved the Union. No instance 
was recollected in which a plain provision of the Constitution had been denied. It 
would justify revolution for a majority to refuse a minority any of its rights, but the 
majority or the minority must acquiesce in the constitutional decisions of the other. 
In his opinion, "Plainly, the central idea of secession is the essence of anarchy;" 
also, a majority held in check by Constitutional provisions was the only true sovereign 
of a free people. He doubted the justice of having the policy of the Government 
irrevocably fixed by the decisions of the Supreme Court, and believed the substantial 
cause of difference between the two sections was, that one side believed that slavery 
was right, and ought to be extended, and the other that it was wrong, and ought not 
to be extended. Physically speaking, we cannot separate; and he significantly asked, 
" Can aliens make treaties easier than friends can make laws ? " He would recommend 
no amendment to the Constitution, but if the people desired it, would favor rather than 
oppose a ffciir opportunity for the people to act upon one; and he had no objection to 
an express and irrevocable amendment that Congress should not meddle with the do- 
mestic institutions of the States. " In your hands," said he, " my dissatisfied fellow- 
countrymen, and not in mine, is the momentous issue of civil war. The Government 
will not assail you ; you can have no conflict without yourselves being the aggressors. 
You have no oath registered in heaven to destroy the government; while I shall have 
the most solemn one to ' preserve, protect, and defend it. ' " 

Thus he assumed his positions within the Constitution and the laws, and for the law- 
ful continuance of their sovereignty in all the States of the Union. No friend of the 
Union could complain at his distinct statements, and his logical views of the difficulties 
of the hour. The friends of the Union had hoped that he, though alleged to be elected 
by a sectional party, would abandon all sectionalism in his sentiments, if he entertained 
any, and see nothing but his whole country, the preservation of the peace, the protection 
of all men in their legal rights. In this Inaugural, they saw that they were not disap- 
pointed. Not possessing the polish of literary culture, it ha i a plain, business-like 
directness in exact harmony with the parliamentary spirit of the age, which seeks the 
accomplishment of practical results, rather than well turned phrases and high-toned 
eloquence in a state document. His commencement was the omen of a successful 

Fort Sumter. 

Throughout the North the Inaugural was received with decided approbation. The 
clouds seemed to break away from the future, for the Government was seen to" have a 
policy, a decision of character not so easily discovered in the Administration just re- 
signing its power. In the South, among the Secessionists, the Inaugural was denoimced 
as a declaration of war, and anathema and derision were showered upon the head of hira 
who was faithfully seeking to lead a divided nation to peace. The public sentiment of the 
North commenced concentrating around the President, to sustain the flag of the Union 
wherever it was insulted or torn down. Loyalty was the sentiment and the word of 
the North. The Executive, thus backed by the people, commenced the most cautious 
movements to avoid an open rupture, yet to maintain the dignity of the laws. But 
the Secessionists, crying out against the tyranny and the sectionalism of the North, 
secretly laid their plans to force the Government to consent to peaceable secession or to 
open war. 

The Congress of the Confederate States passed their Army bill, to organize a mate- 
rial force with which to maintain their hostile position. Their action did not pause 
with resolves, — they put their thoughts into deeds, and compelled the friends of the 
Union to believe that there was no alternative but a civil war or a dissolution of the 
Union. March 18th, by a general order, General 'Bragg cut off" the supply of fuel, 
water, and provisions, to the armed vessels of the United States in Pensacola harbor. 
On the i2th, the Confederate Commissioners, believing that they could coerce the 
North into a peaceable negotiation for a dissolution of the Union, presumed to address 
a note to Secretary Seward, in which they expressed a desire to open a negotiation for 
a peaceful separation of the States. Mr. Seward very properly replied to them that he 
should refuse to recognize them as agents, or hold official or diplomatic intercourse 
with them. 

At Savannah, Ga., on the 2Ist, was the first great annunciation of the principles 
upon which the Southern Confederacy was to be founded. Mr. Alexander H. Stevens, 
the Vice-President of the Confederate States, in a speech upon the subject, said of his 
government, "7fa foundations are laid, its corner stone rests, upon the great truth that the 
negro is not equalto the white man ; that slavery, subordinatmi to the superior race, is his 
natural and normal condition. This, our neio government, is the first in the history of the 
world, based uponthis great physical, philosophical and moral truth." This announce- 
ment, made with barefaced honesty, went through the country, and deeply stirred 
the moral sensibilities of the people. Men could not believe that the days of a Nero 
and a Caligula had come again. 

Then followed quickly those acts that brought the agitations of the hour to an issue. 
The Secessionists would not tolerate neutrality — they compelled men to declare their 
faith. Fort Sumter had long been besieged, and was in a suffering condition. It be- 
came the duty of the Government to send to it supplies, and it informed the authorities 
at Charleston that those supplies should be sent peaceably if possible, but forcibly if 


they must. They had formed a cordon of fire around the fort, and watched every sail 
that approached it with a determination for its destruction. An unarmed schooner 
was fired into ; and the Star of the West, loaded with Government supplies for the fort, 
was also fired into by the surrounding batteries, and compelled to retire. These were 
the first guns of South Carolina directed against the Union. By her treason, a starving 
and beleaguered garrison, which had been placed in her harbor for her defence, was to 
be cut oif from existence. 

The drama now rapidly commenced to thicken. April 8th, Beauregard informed 
Walker, the Confederate Secretary of War, that PresidenfLincoln intended to pro- 
vision Fort Sumter peaceably, or by force; to which Walker replied on the 10th, that 
he should demand its immediate evacuation, and if refused, that he should reduce it. 
The 11th, Beauregard communicated this to Anderson, and stated that the command 
and property should be respected, and the flag saluted on being taken down. Major 
Anderson replied that his sense of honor, and his obligation to his Government, pre- 
vented his complying with the demand, and also stated verbally to the bearer, that he 
should be starved out in a few days if he was not battered to pieces. Walker then in- 
quired at what time he would evacuate, and Anderson replied on the 15th, if he did not 
receive supplies or controlling instructions from the Government. This was not satis- 
factory to the rebel statesman. On the 12th, he was informed that fire would be opened 
upon him in one hour. 

The Battle. 
At 4, A. M., nineteen batteries commenced pouring their iron hail into the fort. 
This opened the battle that was to determine the last great issue between the Ancient 
Barbarism and the Modern Civilization. 

To the surprise of Major Anderson, a masked battery of 33 heavy guns opened and 
crashed their shot against the walls of the fort. The Major was calm, and equal to the 
occasion. He leisurely breakfasted his men at half-past six, while shot and shell were 
flying thick around them. He then divided his command into three reliefs, disposed 
them, and opened fire upon Cumming's Point, Fort Moultrie, and Sullivan's Island, 
Thefloatingbattery of the rebels, with its slant roof of heavy iron, proved a more eff'ect- 
ual resistance to cannon shot than was anticipated, and was but little injured. Fort 
Moultrie did not stand our heavy and well-aimed guns as well. The fire of the rebels 
was so terrific, that it was impossible to use the parapet guns. A man, however, was 
kept on the lookout, and cried "shot," or "shell," so that before the missile reached 
the fort, the men had time to rush to shelter. This saved life. The rebel fire continued. 
After two days' firing at the flagstaff, a portion was shot away. The officers' quarters 
were destroyed. The barracks caught fire several times on the first day and were ex- 
tinguished ; but the second day, taking fire, they could not be put out. The walls 
were soon greatly weakened by the tons of iron hailed against them, the main gates 
were destroyed, and to complete the work of destruction, the fort took fire on all sides. 
Through fear that it would communicate with the powder magazine, ninety-six barrels 
of powder were thrown into the sea. The cartridges soon gave out, and sheets, shirts, 
and blankets were used in making them, until these gave out also, and there was abso- 
lutely nothing with which to continue fighting. The men suffered all things but death. 
The last biscuit had been eaten 36 hours before ; the fire increased to such a heat that 
the men had to lay upon the ground with their handkerchiefs to their mouths to keep 
from suffocation ; and this would have been no prevention if it had not been for an eddy 
of wind that fortunately passed through the fort. 

Thus matters stood in a most critical and desperate condition, until the close of the 
13th. Senator Wigfall then made his appearance at one of the embrasures, and said 
that he came from Beauregard, and urged them to suspend fire and surrender. At his 
request, a white flag was displayed from the embrasure ; but, instead of respecting it, as 
is done by the rules of war among civilized nations, rebel shot was directed at it. The 
soldier holding it came down; and Wigfall himself then took it, but was compelled to 
retreat also, and no one else was found who would take the perilous responsibility. To 
his request for evacuation, Major Anderson replied that he would evacuate on the terms 
already stated, and none other. Wigfall then retired. Others soon came, who said 
that Wigfall was not authorized by Beauregard. The brave Major Anderson finding 
that further resistance was madness, agreed upon the same terms of evacuation which 
he before prescribed. These were that they might march out with all the company and 
side arms and individual property, at their own time, in their own way, and that they 
should salute the flag upon taking" it down. Then preparations for the evacuation were 
made, the flag was saluted with fifty guns as it was lowered, and the men marched out 
playing Yankee Doodle and Hail to the Chief. The only men killed on our side were 
two, at the firing of the last gun in the salute ; and they were buried at the foot of the 
flagstaff', with the honors of war. 

Thus fell Fort Sumter at the hands of South Carolina; the first State to forget the 
memory of her fathers, the first to repudiate and put from her the fruits of the glorious 
battle-fields of the Revolution, the first to make war upon that Constitution that Jeffer- 
son and Hamilton framed, and that Washington prepared the way for with his sword. 
With treason in her heart, with suicide in her brain, and 6000 men and 19 heavy bat- 
teries in her hand, she attacked a small fort and sixty starved men, and went into 
ecstacies of delight at her victory. She will yet find that it was not a victory, but a 
terrible defeat, for in her attack upon Sumter she attacked the moral dignity and fast- 
ness of modern civilization, and this cannot yield to South Carolina. 



The President's Proclamations. 
The news of the fall of Sumter went like a thunderbolt through the land. The mar- 
tial sp'rit of the people was aroused. These guns were not heard clashing their iroa 
hail against the walls of that fort alone. The people heard them breaking their force 
against the temple which their fathers had builded, and shattering it to atoms. They 
felt that law, order, peace, the foundations of the Republic, had been ovitraged, and 
that there was no release fiom the obligation to rise up, and, as one man, rush to the 
annihilation of the powers of the Rebellion. Never British blood nor Celtic ire leaped 
quicker at an outrage offered to their nation's honor, than did the American spring to 
redeem his flag from this deep disgrace. 

Before, the President had hesitated to precipitate events, for fear that he might add 
one straw to the lighting of the fires of civil war among thirty millions of people. He 
would rather err on the side of mercy ; he would rather be slow to anger ; slow to hurl 
the North and the South, those two gigantic powers, against each other in mortal con- 
flict. Hence the myrmidons of secession were allowed to build their batteries, point 
their guns, and threaten to belch their fires upon the cherished institutions of the 
Union, as long as a hope was left that they might repent of their haste, and with- 
draw from their work of ruin. But now the last ray of hope was fled. The President 
of the United States had nothing to do but to strike in return. Justice, mercy, duty 
to millions, urged him to strike, and he no longer hesitated. He immediately called 
his counsellors together. They heard the cry of the people, and that it was to arms. 
As their official Executive, he saw there was no cause, no time for deliberation. Im- 
mediately the proclamation went forth, on the loth of April, the day after Sumter fell, 
for 7o,0!)0 men to execute the laws of the land. As the laws of the Union were 
obstructed in South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Florida, Mississippi, Louisiana and 
Texas, by combinations too powerful to be suppressed by the ordinary means, he 
thought fit to call forth the militia of the several States to the number of 75,000, to 
execute the laws. He appealed to all loyal people to aid in maintaining the nation's 
honor, the perpetuity of popular government, and to redress the wrongs already long 
enough endured. 

And here comes a part of the Proclamation that should be read by all men in the 
South ; that should be fastened upon their doorposts, so that they could not fail to 
understand it, and show that this is a war not against the legal rights of any man, 
— that it is to protect all men, and the peace of the country. 

" I deem it proper,''' he said, " to say that the first service assigned to the forces hereby 
called forth, will probably be to repossess the forts, places, andprojierty which have been seized 
from the Union ; and in every event, the utmost care will be observed, consistently with the 
objects aforesaid, to avoid any devastation, any destruction of, or interftrence with, property, 
or any disturbance of peaceful citizens in any pari of the country." 

He commanded the persons composing these combinations to retire peaceably to their 
respective abodes within twenty days from date. 

He also summoned both Senators and Representatives to assemble in their respective 
Chambers at noon, on July 4th, and there determine such measures as the public safety 
and interest might demand. 

On the 19th of April, he issued another Proclamation, declaring the ports of the States 
of South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Florida, Mississippi, Louisiana and Texas — 
theports of all the States that had seceded — in a state of blockade. 

On the 27th of April, he issued another Proclamation, declaring the ports of Vir- 
ginia and North Carolina under blockade, they having seceded since the date of the pre- 
ceding Proclamation. 

On the 3d of May, he deemed it necessary to issue another Proclamation, calling for 
42,000 volunteers to serve for three years, unless they were sooner discharged. He al.o 
directed that the regular army be increased by 22,714 men ; and also called for the en- 
listment of 18,000 seamen for the naval service. 

On the 10th of May, he declared, by Proclamation, martial law upon the islands of 
Key West, the Tortugas, and Santa Rosa, and Florida. 

On the 12th of August, he also issued another Proclamation, appointing the last 
Thursday in September as a day of humiliation and prayer and fasting, for all the 
people of the nation. 

And on the 16th of August, he issued his last Proclamation, declaring the seceded 
States in a state of insurrection, and interdicted all commerci .1 intercourse with them. 
Immediately upon the first Proclamation, the Secretary of War issued a call to the 
Governors of the several States for three months' men, to be detailed from the militia 
of the S'.ate, for each man to take the oath of allegiance to the Government, and to 
be mustered into the service of the United States as soon as possible. 

The national Executive had done his duty. He had not precipitated war upon the 
country ; war had been forced upon him; and now, as Commander-in-Chief, he could 
fight, and leel the power of justice was in his sword. It only remained for the people 
to respond to his call, and by their acts show to him, and to all the world, whether or 
not it was so easy to break in two the Great Republic. 

Besponse of tlie People. 

The Fiery Cross had gone forth; the summons to twenty-five millions had been 

sounded, and on the instant, we saw a "noble and puissant nation rousing herself like 

a strong man from sleep, and shaking her invincible locks." Time enough had been 

spent in urging measures of conciliation. Force was now the only appeal. The North- 


ein Giant, calm in his haste, buckled on the Vulcanian panoply of war, and began to 
show stern front to Hydra-headed Rebellion. The people felt the magnitude of their 
task, and showed themselves equal to its undertaking. 

Secessia received the Proclamation with storms of denunciation; she rushed like a 
headless and infuriated mob to any and all points where she could steal, capture, and 
destroy, to thw;irt the aciioii of the President. 

Citizens, but not governments, in the Southern border States, hesitated to take the 
fearful plunjie. The Executives of every State South, save that of Delaware and 
Maryland, threw their swords into the Southern balance. 

The madness of the Secessionists became a frenzy to grasp the material and the 
advantages of war. They declared to all the South that they had been attacked, that 
the war was to be a war for their suhjugation, that it was the ambition of the North to 
rule by the sword, and to make war upon their institutions. They only asked to be 
let alone, and there would be no war. Certainly there can be no fighting if we do not 
oppose the assassin aiming at our life. 

With this logic in their mouths, the Government was denounced, and the Union was 
to be overthrown. Governor Magoffin, of Kentucky, positively refused to furnish men 
" to aid," as he said, " in subduing the sister Southern States." Governor Harris, of 
Tennessee, would not furnish men for the Union, but, if necessary, 50,000 against it. 
Governor Jack-on, of Missouri, and Ellis, of North Carolina, foUuwed in the fiotsteps of 
Magoffin and Harris. Governor Letcher, of Virginia, forgetting and trampling under 
his feet the memories of Henry and Madison, Jefferson and Washington, replied to the 
Secretjary of War, and told him that he derided the useless purpose of subjugating 
the South, and that Virginia wiiuld not furnish troops for that purpose, but would send 
troops to oppose it with determination. 

Immediately upon the passage of the ordinance of secession in secret session by a Tote 
of 60 to 59, he recognized the Southern Confederacy by proclamation, ordered the 
sinking of vessels at the entrance of Norfolk harbor, and issued a proclamation for the 
militia of the State to hold itself in readiness to answer an immediate call for action. 
He struck for Harper's Ferry, with its 15,000 stand of arms and machinery, but the 
gallant Lieutenant Jones snatched Ihem from his gr<isp, by their sudden destruction. 
He attempted to seize the Gosport navy yard, but that was destroyed, and the ships 
of war Pennsylvania, Delaware, Columbus, Merrimac, Raritan, Columbia, Germantown, 
Plymouth, Dolphin, and United States, were scuttlea and set on fire, and the Cumber- 
land was towed out. Governor Hicks, of Maryland, Unionist, refusing to convene 
the Maryland Legislature, gave the President notice that no more troops could go 
through Baltimore without fighting their way. Of all the Southern States, Governor 
Burton, of Delaware, on the 26th of April, called for Union troops. Davis, the dictator, 
replied to the proclamation by calling for 32,000 men from the seceded States, and issu- 
ing his Letters of Marque and Reprisal to prey upon Northern commerce, thus adding 
barbarism to treason. 

The North, too, sprang to its feet. Governors convened legislatures, and not a 
single Executive becnrae false to his allegiance to the Constitution of the United 
States. The Banks everywhere offered their capital for furnishing supplies, arming and 
equipping troops, and forwarding them immediately to the seat of war. The banks of 
Boston voted a loan of ten per cent, of their capital; and the legislature of New York 
voted 30,000 men and 3,000,000 of money for the same patriotic purpose. Prominent 
men everywhere, those distinguished for their integrity and influence, by letter and by 
public speech, joined their voices in encouraging the people to do the great work before 
them. Meetings were held in every town and city, resolves passed, money raised, and 
men enlisted. In the principal cities exasperated people, no longer willing to suffer 
patiently with those whose principles struck at the heart of law, visited men, and news- 
paper offices, suspected of sympathy with secession, compelled them to di-avow their 
sentiments, and raise the stars and stripes. The Flag of the Union never before 
received such homage. Its folds appeared upon every housetop in the Northern 
States, and men looked upon them with a new honor, love and reverence. Union 
badges, the red, white, and blue, were worn by everybody, so that all men declared 
their principles to all men upon the street. Everywhere, partisan feeling was laid aside ; 
the people knew no Democrat, no Republican, no Abolitionist; all men moved to the 
step and the music of the Union. New York, the metropolis in which secession 
dreamed that she siw sufficient corruption to aid her treason, would listen to nothing 
but sentiments of loyalty, and pledged her millions, at the hands of her merchant 
princes, to crush secession at its birth. Rhode Island, though the smallest of the 
States, was not behind the old Bay State, and the Empire Sate, in the promptitude of 
her reply to the call of the President, and in her action, gave herself a glorious record 
upon the page of history. Military companies sprang up ready armed, like Minerva 
from the head of Jupiter, from Maine to Minnesota, from the Northern lakes to Ma- 
son and Dixon's line, and begged to be sent to the scene of action. The Germans, 
Irish, Scotch, and English — men who had fled from the Old World's oppressions aud 
luxuries — flew to arms to defend their adopted country. In secession they saw only an 
oligarchy and a tyrant, who would, in America, enact another thousand years of 
Europe, with its age of bitterness for man, and only its few years of glory. Not only 
partisan and sectonal strife were forgotten, but Protestant and Catholic, who had been 
at battle since the days of Luther, forgot their religious differences, joined hands, sent 
their prayers to one God of battles, and asked Him to crown tHeir united purpose with 



Thus, in the North, the State authorities and the people "collected their scattered 
elements of strength, and awakened their dormant thunders," to hurl destruction upon 
Secession ; upon those seeking to encompass the ruin of the best government on 
eartli, or of history. Governors and legislatures, without one word or thought of 
treason, or of sympathy with those who had been, for two centuries, their Southern 
brethren, now that the hour of compromise and of patience had gone, and the hour of 
war had come, sprang forth to seize every advantage that nature and prosperity had 
placed in their hands, to sustain what the South would destroy. The moral grandeur 
of the spectacle was sublime in the extreme. Neither Greece at Thermopylse, nor 
Rome with an Attila at her gates, stood clothed with mightier habiliments of moral 
power. Before the authorized national Executive had spoken the behest of law, the 
people stood with folded arms, waiting and hoping that the South would return to her 
reason ; stood calm, and saw their forts and arsenals stolen, seized, dismantled, and 
turned against them, — saw frowning batteries ready to storm iron hail upon their gar- 
risons and beloved flag, which, in all its history, had never been humbled; yet moved 
not to defence, and spoke words of conciliation and candor. But when the law said 
war, war it was. This patience of the people ; this respect of the people for law ; this 
sudden and united uprising of the people in solid Macedonian phalanx, gave the lie to 
the political philosophy of a Palmerston and a Derby, to the carjiing critics and 
admirers of an effeminate European aristocracy, who had no faith in the moral d'gnity 
of man, no faith in self-government, no faith in the American democracy. The highest 
results of civilization in the British E npire, the uprising of her people against the 
tyranny of a Stuart or a Guelph, can show no higher deed. Democracy, for all the 
ages, teas vindicated. 

Continuance of the Kebellion. 

We have sketched the opening of the war, the Proclamation of the President, and 
the response of the people ; now we propose a brief sketch of the rebellion. 

April 2:j, John Bell, of Tennessee, cast his lot with rebellion. He, with many oth- 
ers, was borne down by the tempest of popular treason. Everywhere in the North, and 
in the South, on the last of April, all was confusion and disorder. The Governors of 
the Southern States were using their executive functions to aid the advances of re- 
bellion ; the armed mobs, and those who had the name of troops, were seizing and 
destroying, and appropriating to their own purposes bonds and monies of the United 
States in the collectors' offices, steamers and vessels belonging to Northern men, forts 
and arms. Numerous Southerners, in Washington, refused to take the oath of alle- 
giance, and resigned their positions. 

May saw the continuance of disorder. The bill to hold a State convention passed 
the legislature of North Carolina, when secession became evident for that State 
aiso. The Connecticut legislature, actuated by a different principle, voted ,f 2,000,000 
to sustain the government. May sixth, Virginia, the mother of Presidents, was 
admitted to the'Souttiern Confederacy; the Arkansas convention voted, 69 to 1, to 
secede ; the rebel Congress made public the War and Privateering Act ; and the Ken- 
tucky legislature met to drag that old State out of the Union, if possible ; and on the 
next day the Governor of Tennessee announced a military league between that State 
and the Southern Confederacy. Between this time and the 24th, the same activity 
exhibited itself in all the States, North and South ; troops rushing to Washington 
from the North, and rebels arming and organizing in all the South. The most notice- 
able fact of these days was the attempt of the rebels to take Kentucky out of the 
Union, under the lead of her traitor Governor Magofhn. On the twentieth, when he 
found It impossible to coerce her into disunion, he issued his proclamation of Neu- 
trality — thus giving a quasi assistance to rebellion, and resistance to the North. 

On the 24th occurred the general advance of the Union forces across the Potomac 
into Virginia, for the purpose of occupying Arlington Heights, which commanded the 
City of Washington, and erecting defences against the approach of the rebels in that 
direction. Upon their advance, the rebels evacuated Alexandria, which was immedi- 
ately occupied by our forces under Col. Ellsworth. At this time occurred the death of 
Ellsworth, who was shot by the traitor Jackson, the landlord of the Marshall House. 

Colonel Ephraim Elmer Ellsworth was born at Mechanicsville, a small town in Sara- 
toga County, N. Y., on the banks of the Hudson, April 23, 1837- His father's fortunes 
were completely wrecked in the financial disasters of that period, and he was never 
able to retrieve them. Young Ellsworth was thrown on his own resources. After 
various employments in Troy and New York, and pursuing studies at a great sacrifice 
that peculiarly fitted him to enter West Point, and after ineffectual attempts to enter 
that place, and his failure for the want of political influence, he removed to Chicago, 
and there successfully engaged in business as a patent agent. Fraud deprived him of 
much of the fruit of his industry. Not losing heart, he resolved upon the study of 
law, and coined something by copying in those hours that others were devoting to 
relaxation. But war was his predilection ; and he perfected himself in the exercise 
of the swordsman, marksman and the gymnast. He looked upon these for higher 
purposes than those of the duelist; besought to improve by popularizing the light- 
infantry drill of the militia. For this purpose he studied the light-infantry drill of 
France, as exercised in Africa, Russia and Italy. He devoted himself to a thorough 
study of the French Manual, translated under the direction of Hardee. Having made 


himself its master, he feathered around him a number of young men of temperate 
habits and athletic bodies, and thus organized the United States Zouave Cadets, of Chi- 
cago, — the first American Zouave company. Tobacco and intoxicating liquors were not 
to be used by any member of his company, upon pain of expulsion. He discarded the 
old uniform, and adopted one that gave perfect freedom to the limbs and body. He 
drilled his company for about a year, and also gave his attention to similar organizations 
in Springfield and Rockford. At the United States Agricultural Fair he won the 
colors, only to keep them until some other company could show a superior ability. 

In July, 1860, they came East, and everywhere attracted enthusiastic crowds. In 
New York they filled the Academy of Music, and the streets, to suffocation. All men 
who saw him, and his influence over his men, felt that he had a wonderful genius for 

In the Presidential election he advanced the cause of Lincoln by his popularity 
and his appeals. He formed a volunteer regiment on his return from the East, and 
tendered its services to the Governor, conscious that he saw war in the future. He 
exerted himself to influence the Legislature of Illinois to pass a military bill for put- 
ting that State upon a better footing to meet any emergency of war, but failed to effect 
his object. He was known to the President elect, and at his request accompanied him 
to \Vashins;ton to receive a lieutenant's commission as preliminary to his entrance to 
the War Department, where he hoped to create the Militia Bureau of which he had 
long been preparing a plan. 

The war broke out — the call was made for volunteers — Ellsworth, disgusted with the 
political corruption of Washington, hastened to New York, to raise a Zouave regiment 
of the firemen of that cily, whose metal he well knew. He had an interview with the 
Chief of the Fire Department ; the Chief issued the call, and in two days twelve 
hundred names were enrolled. Ten companies were accepted, and proceeded to Fort 
Hamilton to drill. He was now in his element. His regiment became the pet of New 
York. They received their stand of colors before leaving the city. On the second of 
May, less than three weeks after he had left Washington, alone, without authority, with 
nothing but hi^ own will, he was again in that city at the head of a splendid regiment, 
created from the citizens by his own energy. He worked on, drilling and controlling 
his regiment, a task most difficult to perform, but one to which he was entirely equal. 
May 22 the order came to march to Alexandria. He went there with his regiment. 
Finding that no resistance would be offered, he gave the necessary orders to have the 
railroad communication interrupted, and proceeded in person with a small detachment 
to seize the telegraph. Catching sight of a secession flag, over the Marshall House, 
he entered, and asked what flag that was. The man replied that he knew nothing of 
it ; that he was only a lodger. Ellsworth proceeded to the roof, cut down the flag, and, 
on his way down, Jackson sprang forward from a corner, and aimed a double-barreled 
fowling piece at Ellsworth's breast. Private Brownell, in front, tried to strike it up, 
but the assassin discharged the piece, driving into his very heart a gold circlet on which 
were these words, " "Non nobis sed pro patria." Brownell immediately slew the 
assassin. Ellsworth's remains were taken to the*East Room of the White House, at the 
request of the President. He and his Cabinet accompanied them to the depot on their 
way to New York. At New York they were laid in state in the Governor's room, A 
funeral procession of great length accompanied his remains to the river ; and at the 
home of his childhood, amid the fury of a storm, they were committed to the earth. 

We can give no more enduring comment upon the character of this man, than 
appears by quoting the last letter which he wrote to his parents the night before mov- 
ing to Alexandria : — 

Head Quarters First Zottayes, Camp Lincoln, 
Washington, May 23. 
My Dear Father and Mother : 

The regiment is ordered to move across the river to night. We have no means 
of knowing what reception we are to meet with. I am inclined to the opinion that our 
entrance into Alexandria will be hotly contested, as I am just informed a large force 
have arrived there to-day. Should that happen, my dear parents, it may be my lot to 
be injured in some manner. 

Whatever may happen, cherish the consolation that I was engaged in the perform- 
ance of a sacred duty ; and to-night, thinking over the probabilities of the morrow, and 
the occurrences of the pHSt, 1 am perfectly content to accept whatever ray fortune may 
be, confident that He who noteth.even the fall of a sparrow will have some purpose 
even in the fate of one like me. 

My darling and ever ioved parents, good-by. God bless, protect and care for you. 


This advance of the Union troops into Virginia was the vanguard of the Northern 
army. It was saluted as an invasion by Virginia, in her deep degeneracy. In the 
estimation of many, the ermine of the Supreme Court of the United States was also 
tarnished by treason, in the attempt of the Chief Justice to put the military authorities 
in such an exigency under the hand of that court, in the Meryman case. On the 27th 
of May, Jefferson Davis, with his rebel Congress, reached Richmond, Virginia, and 
the blockade of the Mississippi was commenced; and May 31, General Lyon took 
command, in the place of General Harney, at St. Louis. Thus, the end of May saw no 
abatement in the designs of the rebels. 

The next battle of any importance was fought at Philippi, Virginia, by Col. Kelly, 



with a loss of 16 killed and ten prisoners to the enemy, and the Union men lost only 
two killed, and Col. Kelly wounded. 

June 1st occurred the batile of Big Bethel, near Fortress Monroe, an unfortunate 
attempt being made to surprise the enemy. Our forces were repulsed with 14 killed 
and 4.5 wounded. Among the number killed were Lieutenant Greble and Major Wiu- 
throp, the next signal martyrs of the war. 

John Lunt Greble was born in Philadelphia, on the 19th of January, 1834. He was 
of honorable German parentage, whose ancestors distinguished themselves in the 
Revolution, at Monmouth and Princeton. As a boy, he was studious, yet had the 
qualities of firmness and courage strongly developed. In 18o0 he received an appoint- 
ment as cadet at West Point, and on the 1st of July, 18o4, graduated with high honors 
in his class. He immediately entered the army, received a commission as brevet 
second lieutenant in the Second Artillery, and was stationed at Newport barracks. In 
September he was made second lieutenant, and went to Tampa, Floiida. He was 
engaged here two years, and took active part in the Indian troubles caused by Billy 
Bowlegs. After going home sick, in 1856 he returned with recruits, and resumed active 
service, and discharged, for a time, the duties of quartermaster and commissary. In 
December, 18-56, he was appointed acting assistant professor of Ethics at the military 
academy, and held that position until Oct. 1860, having, in the mean time, been pro- 
moted to a first litutenancy. As professor, he was required to give instruction in 
History, Rhetoric, Elocution, International and Constitutional Law, the Constitution 
of the United States, and Logic. In October, 1860, as he repeatedly solicited active 
service, he was ordered to Fortress Monroe. On May 26th he was sent to Newport 
News, as Master of Ordnance. Here the three thousand volunteers looked to him for 
real instruction. He superintended the works here mentioned, and also gave them 
instruction in the handlinff of artillery. Col. Phelps, commandant at Newport News, 
was ordered to march at midnight, and attack and surprise the rebels at Little Bethel. 
Greble was detailed by him to command the artillery. He obeyed with alacrity, but 
remarked to a brother officer that the expedition was ill-advised ; that no good could 
come of it, and that he feared that he would not come off the field alive. At midnight 
he left Newport News with two six-pounders, with only two mules to draw the one, and 
IDO men the other. Two miles in the advance, with one gun and 11 artillerymen, he 
heard firing in the rear. He returned to the point, and found his other gun firing into 
a Brooklyn regiment. This notified the enemy of his approach, when they retired to 
their works at Camp Creek. In sight of the enemy's works, he planted his gun, opened 
fire, and steadily advanced to within 100 yards of the works. When urged to retire, or 
dodge the balls, he refused, and kept up his fire for two hours, silencing all the enemy's 
guns, but one, by the accuracy of his aim. They made a sortie; he drove them back 
with his grape. The officers near him urged him to dodge or retreat, when he replied, 
"I never dodge: and when I hear the notes of the bugle calling a retreat, I will 
retreat, and not before." Only five oT his men remained ; and, as it was evident that 
no command existed on the field, he gave the order to limber up the gun, and take it 
away, when a ball struck him in the temple, and he fell, exclaiming, " Oh, my God ! " 
Philadelphia did him honor in her last attentions to his remains. 

Major Theodore Winthrop was born in New Haven, on the 22d of September, 1828. 
He was grave, delicate, precocious. At 16 he entered Yale; became the idol of his 
college friends; studied for the Clark scholarship, and won it ; studied for the Berke- 
leian scholarship, but another being judged equal, they drew lots ; the other won, and 
then divided the honor. Greek and mental philosophy were his favorite studies. He 
had a right to be called a scholar by nature. His mother was a great-granddaughter 
of President Edwards ; and, among his relatives on his mother's side, he counted six 
presidents of colleges. But for failing health, he would have studied for a professorship 
or the ministry. He graduated in 1848, when 20 years old. He travelled for his 
health; went to England; spent some time at Oxford; walked through Scotland; 
went to France and Germany ; explored Switzerland on foot, and did a great deal of 
walking in Italy and Greece. Becoming acquainted with Mr. W. H. Aspinwall in 
Italy, he became tutor to his son on his return; and then returned and spent six 
months more in Italy with him. After a short time he entered Mr. Aspinwall's 
counting room. Substquently he was engaged by the Pacific Steam-Ship Company, 
and went to Panama. He was gone two years; and, in the mean time, travelled 
tbrousih California, Oregon, went to Vancouver's Island, Puget Sound, and the Hudson 
Bay Company's station there. After another expedition, he returned home, studied 
law, and was admitted to the bar. He entered Fremont's political campaign, and did 
heroic labor for him in the dark places of Pennsylvania. The following year he went to 
St. Louis to practise law, but his health was not equal to the climate. He returned to 
New York, and could not be a lawyer. His brain was full of other fancies. He 
became a constant visitor to Church's studio; presided at the development of that 
great picture the Heart of the Andes. He was a writer, — a man of ideas. His pen was 
always by him, alivays prolific. His first public article was the desrription of the N. 
Y, 7th, in its march to Washington, and published in the June, '61, number of the 
Atlantic. The war, the proclamation came. He marched wiih the Seventh N. Y., as 
all supposed to battle. At Fortress Monroe he was made acting military secretary 


and aid by General Butler. On the disastrous 10th of June, bravely facing the foe, and 
encouraging; his men, at Big Bethel, he fell. 

His articles, published since his death in the Atlantic Monthly, and his two volumes, 
Cecil Dreeme and John Brent, place him high among the literary geniuses of this 

June 11, occurred the brilliant victory of Col. Wallace at Romney, "Virginia, where 
500 rebels were surprised and routed. June 17, the rebels attacked a train filled with 
Union soldiers, by opening fire upon it from masked batteries. It was a barbarous 
work ; eight of our soldiers were killed. And on the same day was fought the most 
brilliant bittle of the war so far, the battle of Booneville, by General Lyon, where a 
largely superior force, under Price and Jackson, were completely routed. On the 20th 
of June General McClellan took command in western Virginia, and soon commenced 
the display of that consummate generalship that has already added so much glory to 
American arms. And so June passed by, with the assaults of the armed rebels in all 
quarters where they could gather in sufficient numbers, and in solid preparation by the 
Union forces for the great contest before them. 

July 1st occurred the fight at Buckhannan, Va., where the rebels were routed with 
23 killed and 200 prisoners; and on the 2d the battle at Martinsburgh, where the 
rebels were again routed. July 5, Col Siegel fought the battle of Carthage in Missouri, 
where the rebels lost 350 in killed and wounded; a battle that gave the stamp of 
superior strategy to the military genius of Siegel. July II occurred the battle of liich 
Mountain in Western Virginia, where Col. Rosencranz defeated Col. Pegram, took 
all his camp equipage, many prisoners, and killed 60 of the enemy. July 13, at 
Carricksfoid, the rebel General Garnett was killed, and the rebels defeated, with heavy 
loss. This battle cleared them out of Western Virginia. July 18 was the first battle 
of Bull Run at Blackburn Ford, where our men were compelled to fall back. On the 
2ist was fought the great battle of Bull Run, with 18,000 meu on our side, and 27,000 
in action on their side. In a desperate conflict of ten hours we almost won the battle, 
when an unaccountable panic occurred, and sent our army, in complete rout, back to 
their fortifications on the Potomac. We lost 479 killed, 1611 wounded, and 1500 
prisoners. The rebels lost 393 killed, and 1200 wounded. Among the killed in this 
action were Cameron and Slocura. 


Colonel John S. Slocum was born in Richmond, Rhode Island, November 1, 1824. 
He learned books well at classical schools and at a commercial academy in Hartford. 
His mind was active, and he learned more than books. He turned much of his atten- 
tion to manual exercises, and distinguished himself in them. During the Dorr rebel- 
lion, he rallied to the defence of the government. This decided his inclination and 
career to arms. When the Mexican war broke out, he hastened, unattended, to Wash- 
ington, and, by his own personal exertions, made his way to the ear of the President, 
and obtained a commission as first lieutenant in the Eighteenth, under Colonel Ran- 
som. At the battle of Contreras his meritorious conduct won him the brevet rank of 

At Chepultepec, his captain having been promoted, he commanded the company, 
and shared m all the glory of that day ; this earned him the rank of captain. At the 
disbandment of his regiment, he retired to private life. In the meantime he was urged, 
by several companies, to take command, and teach the art of war. His military studies 
led him to attempt to introduce James' new projectile into Europe. In 1860 he was 
one of the Examining Board at West Point, and, as secretary, made the report of the 
visitors. At the breaking out of the Great Rebellion, the governor offered hina a ma- 
jor's commission in the First Rhode Island, which was accepted without a moment's 
hesitation. When a second regiment was required, he was made colonel, and was au- 
thorized to raise it. He soon raised and had the regiment ready for war. His reg- 
iment opened the battle of Bull Run, and he fell at the head of his regiment at the 
moment the enemy were giving way before him. He was ever distinguished for his 
attention and kindness to the wants of his men, and for his heroism. In the lan- 
guage of another, •' His monument will proudly bear the record, "Contreras, Cheru- 
busco, Chepultepec, Ludley Ford." 


James Cameron was born at Maytown, Lancaster County, Pa., March 1, 1801, On 
his forty-seventh birth-day, he thus reviewed his own life : "This day, forty six years 
ago, a child was born in a beautiful obscure town, in the interior of Pennsylvania, 
whose Christian name was James. This child has passed through much of the thorny 
thickets of life. He was a cow-boy, a plough-boy, a cutler, a blacksmith, a turner, a 
tailor, a printer, a brewer, a contractor, an alderman, a superintendent of railroads, 
a lawyer, a prosecuting attorney, an aid to the governor, — in short, almost everything 
but a Christian." He worked steadily as a blacksmith until nineteen, then entered 
the printing office of his brother Simon at Harrisburgh. From this he wandered into 
conducting the Lycoming Gazette at Williamsport. 

In 1827, he removed to Lancaster, and assumed the direction of the Polit- 
ical Sentinel. While conducting this paper, he studied law in the office of the 
President, James Buchanan. But the anti-masonic times caused him to sell out his 
paper, and become a contractor on the public works in Pennsylvania. During the Mex- 
ican war, he accompanied the volunteers of the State as sutler, and thus saw something 



of army service. This turned his attention to military matters. The Seventy-Ninth 
Highland Regiment of New York, anxious to be led by the historic name of Cameron, 
tendered the command to him. The regiment soon removed to Camp Lochiel. He was 
at the battle of Bull Run. During the engagement he showed the bearing and the 
courage of the true soldier. He rode conspicuous at the head of his men, and with no 
disguise. In the demonstration at the Stone Bridge, Cameron, though sick and feeble, 
almost, indeed, dying, headed his regiment, and again and again led up his men with 
his "Scots, follow me!" ringing above the din of battle. Wade Hampden, who had 
fired rifle after rifle at him, finally reached his mark, and Cameron fell. His remains 
now repose on the battle-field, after fruitless attempts to recover them by the consent 
of the unchivalric and rebel Beauregard. The Union army will yet advance and 
take them. 

August 1, McClellan, having taken command of the army of the Potomac, com- 
menced the reorganization of the Union army. On the 2d the battle of Dug Spring 
was fought in Missouri. Here Lyon gallantly defeated McCulloch, and with a con- 
siderable loss. On the 10th of August was fought the battle of Wilson's Creek, when 
Lyon, having appealed in vain for reinforcements, was compelled to fight 23,000 rebels, 
under McCulloch, Rains, Price, and Jackson, with only 5,500 men. He defeated them 
with a loss to them of 421 killed, and 1,300 wounded, losing himself 269 killed, and 
721 wounded. Lyon himself was killed while leading a charge. 


Nathaniel Lyon was born in a secluded out-of-the-way spot, in the town of Ashford, 
Windham County, Connecticut, on the 14th of July, 1819. His ancestors saw war in 
the Revolution. He was a hero by inheritance. He chose the army. In 1837 he en- 
tered the military academy, and graduated in July, 1841, the eleventh in his class, and 
at once received his coi^mission as second lieutenant in the Second Infantry. His 
first service and honors gained were in Florida. He was appointed first lieutenant in 
1847, and he was joined to Colonel Riley's Brigade in Twiggs' Division. He led hi'S 
company, and captured a battery of three pieces from the enemy at Cerro Gordo. Hon- 
orable mention was made of him, and he was already singled out as one destined to fill 
a conspicuous place in the military annals of the country. He possessed a wiry and 
active person, endowed with great energy and perseverance, and was enthusiastically 
attached to his profession. At Contreras, Lyon and his regiment bore the palm amid 
the brave. Captain Wessells and Lieutenant Lyon, after in vain attempting to turn 
the enemy's cannon upon them, pressed upon them, and took two hundred prisoners 
and two pieces of artillery. Lycn, after this battle, was recommended to the special 
notice of Colonel Riley. At the entrance of the city of Mexico, he also took part in 
the engagement, and was slightly wounded by a spent ball. At the close of the war he 
received the head rank of captain, and was ordered with his company to Missouri, lo 
proceed overland to California, but embarked and reached his destination by sea. He 
remained here several years in active service, and received his captain's commission in 
June, 1851. 

In dealing with the Indians he showed great tact. On one occasion he was attacked 
by three, one of whom seized his sword, but he wrested it from him, ran him through, 
and put the other two to flight. From California he was removed to Fort Riley, in Kan- 
sas, espoused the Republican cause, and aided it by his pen in the Manhattan Express. 
Early in the year he was placed in command of the United States Arsenal at St. Louis. 
His arsenal became a stronghold. The police commissioners of St. Louis demanded 
that Lyon should confine himself to the arsenal. He made no reply. The camp of the 
rebels lay without the city. Lyon was thinking while they were talking. May 1st, he 
suddenly appeared surrounding their camp, sent a demand for unconditional surrender, 
and gave half an hour for reply. They surrendered. They soon attacked him on his 
return; and paid the penalty of the attack. Pie was made brigadier general of volun- 
teers, then broke up the rebel force at Potosi, seized the lead works that were supplying 
the rebel army, and captured the steamer J. C. Juan. By the recall of Harney, ne was 
left in command of the department. Governor Jackson and General Price tried to cir- 
cumvent him, but he turned the tide against them. He pursued these men, and met 
them on the field at Boonville. By consummate generalship he completely overcame 
and routed them, when their tents, ammunition, and supplies fell iuto his hands. So 
complete a victory seemed to crush the hopes of secession, and secure the State for the 
Union. On the 2d of August he fought the battle of Dug Spring against Ben McCul- 
loch with five times his force, and here again he showed superior strategy, and routed 
the enemy with a heavy loss. He appealed to Fremont for reinforcements, as McCul- 
loch's army was continually increasing, but in vain. He was compelled to evacuate 
Springfield. His only alternative was to attack Price and McCulloch in their camp at 
Wilson's Creek, nine miles from Springfield. He had but five thousand five hundred 
to their twenty-three thousand. He resolved to surprise them if possible. The en- 
emy learned of his approach, and prepared to meet him. The battle raged heavily. Lyon 
was thrice wounded in the action ; refused to retire and have his wounds dressed. A 
fresh body came up. Lyon rode up to them, cool and undisturbed, and encouraged them 
to follow up with the bayonet. " Give us a leader," they cried, " and we will follow to 
death ! " He replied, " I will lead you. Come on, brave men ! " In the charge he 
fell dead, pierced through the stomach by a ball, and as he t\ll, he exclaimed to his 
body-servant, "Lehman, I am killed; take care of my body." But he fell in the mo- 
ment of victory. The day was won. He was finally buried by the side of his parents 


in Connecticut. All the states and cities through which his remains passed rose up and 
did him honor. 

The great historian of the country says of him, " His military services were beyond all 
praise ; his character, as described to me, was beautifully correct, and his sad death re- 
flects infinite honor on his own memory." 

August 13 a battle was fought near Grafton, Virginia, where the rebels were defeated 
with a loss of twenty-one killed. The 21st, a battle was fought at Bird's Point, with 
forty rebels killed, and seventeen taken. 

September I there was a fight at Boon Court House, Virginia, with a rebel loss of 
thirty, and the village burned. On the 10th Floyd was defeated by Rosencranz at Carni- 
fax Ferry. On the 12th was fought the battle of Cheat Mountain, where the rebels 
lost Colonel John O. Washington, the rebel proprietor of Mount Vernon. On the 20th 
Colonel Mulligan, at Lexington, surrendered to twenty-six thousand rebels under 
Price, after four days' fighting, with loss of two thousand five hundred men. 

October 9 the attack was made upon Wilson's Zouaves at Santa Rosa Island by one 
thousand five hundred rebels, who were defeated and signally punished. The 21st oc- 
curred the great defeat at Edwards' Ferry on the Potomac, where one thousand five 
hundred of our men were attacked by double their number. Colonel Baker was among 
the slain. 

Colonel Baker. 

Edward Dickinson Baker was born in London, February 24, 1811. He was killed at 
Ball's Bluff, October 21, 1861. His years were a few months more than half a century. 
His father was a man of education and refinement, his mother a sister of Captain Thom- 
as Dickinson of the British navy, an officer of distinction, who fought under Colling- 
wood at Trafalgar. At five years of age he came with his parents to America. Relived ten 
years in Philadelphia. In 1825 his father moved west, and opened a successful school 
on the Lancasterian principle in Belleville, St. Clair County, Illinois. Here young Ba- 
ker developed — a ravenous reader, a boy of fine conversation and manner, of a strong 
memory, and spent his days reading, drawing, learning, and enjoying society of the 
best kind in the State. From thence he went to Carrollton, in Green County, and 
studied law with Judge Caverly, and then practised for some time with indifferent suc- 
cess. Here he married a lady of high character, who still survives him on the shores of 
the Pacific. In 1835 he removed to Sprmgfield, the capital of the State. In 1837 he 
was elected to fill a vacancy in the legislature. He paid little attention to legislative 
business ; but if an opponent was to be demolished, or an obnoxious measure defeated, 
he was the champion called upon to do it. He was State senator from 1840 to 1844. 
All this time he was in assiduous practice of the law. In 1844 he was elected to Con- 
gress from the Sangamon District, and was serving there with distinction when the 
Mexican war broke out. Full of military fire, he left Washington, and raised the 
" Fourth Illinois " in Springfield, and embarked for the war. Ar'riving at Mataraoras, 
he was sent to Washington as bearer of dispatches, made a splendid speech for the 
cause of the volunteers in his seat, and then resigned it. He rejoined his regiment in 
time to be in at the victory of Vera Cruz, and advanced with Scott's army into the 

At Cerro Gordo, Shields was disabled. Baker sprang to the head of his brigade, 
charged a masked battery, took it. and completed an utter rout of the Mexican army. 
He was succeeded in his congressional district by Abraham Lincoln. He left Spring- 
field, and went to Galena, and in a few montlis went to Congress. Here he labored some 
time with industry and success. He declined a re-election, formed a business coanec- 
tion with the Panama Railroad Company, and went to trouble and sickness at the head 
of four hundred men into the hot breath of Panama. He slowly recovered from a ter- 
rible sickness. He returned, restless still. He went to California in 1852, and early 
became chief among the lawyers of that State. Here he made money, fi lends, and 
fame. Unhappy at the murder of his friend Broderick, he went to Oregon, and, enter- 
ing into the election of 1859, headed the republican party of the State. He was pro- 
posed for the Senate, and was elected. This was the summit of his ambition. He 
went to Washington, and all along the route scattered his jewels of eloquence. He 
went to the Senate, and for once stood among his peers. Rebellion lifted her red hand, 
and the din of war called him to the field. His friend, the President, off'ered him a 
brigadier generalship. It was declined, and so was the commission of a major genera). 
He was in for work, not fame. He commenced recruiting. Men flocked to fill his 
ranks. There was a charm in his name. He settled all his private aff'airs — the winds 
of eternity had whispered to him. He was at Ball's Bluff. He rode in front of his 
men with his left hand in his breast. He spoke cool, encouraging words to his men. 
They fought, he fought, with a terribly cool bravery. The battle was desperate. 
Though hopeless, they knew only to fight. A sudden flash from a near covert of the 
enemy, and Baker was dead. 

So lived and fell one of the restless and resistless geniuses and heroes of western life, 
— of American history. Uneducated in the rules of the schools, he was a polished ora- 
tor; trained more to the life of western activities, he had the history of the scholar and 
the point of the rhetorician. Not labored, he was running over with the fluency of his 
thought and language. Apparently indolent in his habits, there was always a clean 
and beautiful finish in his performances. He was a man of ''positive and aggressive 
character," but his soft persuasions were such that he could win golden opinions even 
among his most bitter political opponents. In the backwoods of the W est he was 



restless, energetic, powerful ; in the fierce, hot life of California, he was to hold respect 
and esteem by skill with pistol and tongue, the only recognized representatives of 
manliness in those regions ; and in the United States Senate, or in the mass-meeting of 
New York City, he could adopt the high range of sentiment, and cultivate all styles of 
expression and discussion that become the leaders in those positions. "With books or 
bayonets, senators or gold-diggers, sentimentalists or unscrupulous politicians, he 
could meet each on his own footing, and convince him that he had a man before him, 
subtle, CO )1, energetic, persuasive. Baker will make Ball's Bluff immortal. 

November 1, Lieutenant-General Scott resigned his command of the Union army, 
and McClellan took his place. The same day Floyd was again defeated by Rosencranz 
at Gaulay Bridge. On the 8th was fought the battle of Belmont, where our forces 
were compelled to retire to their boats before larse re-enforcements of the rebels. On 
the loth, Captain Wilkes brought Mason and Slidell to New York, having taken them 
from a British steamer. At Mumfordville, on Green River, Kentucky, on the 17th 
the rebels were defeated, with thirty-three killed and thirty-three wounded. On the 
18th General Pope surprised a rebel camp, and took one thousand three hundred pris- 
oners, includingthree colonels and seventeen captains, and all their camp stores and 
equipage December 20 was fought the battle of Drainsville, where the rebels were 
again defeated with considerable loss. 

This closed the year of 1861. Rebellion was assuming greater proportions every 
day, and so, too, were the means for defence. The North had but one will — the Union 
must be preserved. In that idea they did not falter. 


Among the greatest losses sustained by Massachusetts in this war, is the death of 
Brigadier-General Frederick William Lander of Salem, who was wounded at Ball's 
Bluff, and who died of a congestive fever aggravated by bis wound, at Camp Chase, 
on the upper line of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. 

He was a son of Captain Edward Lander, and was born at Salem, Dec. 17, 1822. 
He chose the position of civil engineer early in life. He was educated at the Dummer 
Academy, By field, and completed his education as engineer at Partridge's Academy . 
He was always characterized by a great fondness for field sports, manly escrcise, and 
adventure. He entered the service of the government some ten years since, and was 
one of the most active and energetic among those engaged in the exploration of the 
railroad routes to the Pacific. He had the command of an expedition in 1858, to open 
a wagon road to California" across the plains. He made five explorations across the 
continent, as engineer, chief engineer, or superintendent. He was superintendent of 
the last surveys fur the great wagon road, and he did his work with such celerity and 
efficiency, that he was highly complimented by the Secretary of the Interior in his 
official report. Of the appropriations made by Congress in two seasons alone for the 
construction of these roads, he brought back ^100,000 of unexpended funds. He was 
one honest employe of the government. His experience in these explorations made 
his judgment extremely valuable in regard to the routes for the Pacific Railroad, and 
Committees of both Houses of Congress had frequent recourse to his knowledge and 
judgment. At one time he organized a party, at his own expense, and surveyed a 
route from Washington Tvritory, through California, to the western part of Missouri. 
In some cases he had to fight the Indians, and rout them, to save his life, and proceed 
with his enterprises. In these expeditions he became acquainted with, and the per- 
sonal friend of our commanding General, McClellan. His public services brought him 
in contact with most of the great men of the time, and he was honored by all. 

On the breaking out of the rebellion he offered himself to his country. He was 
made brigadier-general of volunteers. He served with great efficiency as aid to Gen- 
eral McClellan, in "Western Virginia. On the 2d of June, in the command of the 
9th Indiana and 14th Ohio Regiments, in conjunction with Col. Kelly with another 
detachment, tliey marched through a fearful storm, attacked and shelled out the rebels 
at Phillippi. On the 1 1th of July, at the battle of Rich Mountain, "Col. Lander," 
the official report said, "led the leaders into the fight." Upon the earnest solicitation 
of General McClellan, Governor Sprague, and Senator Carlisle, he was made a briga- 
dier-general, and assigned an important station. During the disaster at Ball's Blufl' he 
was at "Washington, arranging for the opening of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. 
As soon as he received intelligence of the action, he hastened to the spot, and on the 
22d was wounded in the leg by a musket ball, in the skirmish which he had with the 
rebels opposite Edwards' Ferry. He took the field, after his confinement, too early, 
and over exposure and excitement speedily developed the disease that caused his 
death, which occurred March 2d, 1862. 

His sister, the celebrated sculptress, makes her home in Italy, but is now a Florence 
Nightingale in the hospitals at Washington. He married Miss Davenport, a lady 
whose qualities of head and heart and whose dramatic genius are well known. 

The most important feat performed by him was the opening of the railroad and tele- 
graph to Hancock, Virginia, which he accomplished with two thousand men, in two 
columns, marching thirty-two miles in an incredibly short space of time. This act 
celled out a war bulletin from Secretary Stanton, highly complimentary to his abilities. 

At his death, the commanding general issued an order announcing his death, and 
paid him the highest encomiums of friendship and respect. 

When his remains came to his home, they were honored by ^11 the respect that his 
fellow-citizens and the State authorities could bestow. 

He lived a life of heroism, and died honored, — a good destiny. 



**I shall enter on no encomium of Massachusetts; she needs none. There 
she Is. Behold her, and Judge for yourselves. Xhere Is her history; the 
world kuoTvs It by heart. Xhe past, at least, is secure. Xhere is Boston, 
and Concord, and licxingrton, and Bunker Hill ; and there they will remain 
forever. A.nd, sir, v^^here American liberty first raised its voice, and where 
Its youth was nurtured and sustained, there it still lives, in the strength of 
Its manhood, and full of its original spirit. If discord and disunion shall 
rend it, if party strife and blind ambition shall pluck at and tear it. If folly 
a.nd madness. If uneasiness under salutary and necessary restraint shall 
succeed in separating it from the BJuion, by which alone its existence Is 
made sure, it will stand. In the end, by the side of that cradle in which Its 
infancy w^as rocked ; it will stretch forth its arm with whatever of vigor It 
may still retain over the friends who gather round ; and It will fall at last. 
If fall it mast, amidst the proudest monuments of its own glory, and on the 
very spot of its origin." — Websiek. 

Thus spoke the great defender of the Constitution ; and what he has spoken becomes 
history. The loyal millioiis of the North defend that Constitution, and that Union, 
■with their arms, that the great debater defended with his unapproachable eloquence. 
States marshal themselves in a column of defence, and Massachusetts, true to her 
glorious old historic memories, leads the attack. She is the great American Pioneer of 
ideas; for these ideas she first led the attack upon the dogmas of priestcraft and king- 
craft, which had so long shut the gates of mercy upon mankind ; first led the attack 
upon taxation without representation — and why should she not be the first to lead the 
attack upon the treason of the Oligarchy ? 

And what is this question with which Massachusetts ha'? to deal ? It is a question 
between law and anarchy — between democracy and a dictator — between the Goth and 
the Roman. Massachusetts springs into the arena as one of the great arbiters, to strike 
the balance with the sword. When she strikes, it is not for the depression , but for the 
exaltation of the human race. So she has always struck ; and history is full of the 
effectiveness of her blows. 

The Mayflower brought here the germ of the future state. The fruit has not ripened 
to belie the golden merit of the germ. Carver and Bradford, signing that social 
compact in the cabin of the Mayflower, had no thought but that of justice, equity, 
equality, and the full development of the man, in an infant state, freed from the liistor- 
ical memories and feudal oppressions of England. They drodmed of a new empire, 
and in Massachusetts have their children seen the fruition of that dream. 

Those honest men made religion the basis of their new state. In this we do not see 
a blind faith, but an intelligent worship under the supremacy of law, subjected to prin- 
ciples, and these principles the edict of God, written on the pages of the Bible, of nature, 
and in the heart of man. They signed that compact with conscientious motives, and 
we aver, against the assertions of all cavillers, that conscientious motives, from that 
day to this day, have been the guiding spirit of the development of this Massachu- 
setts State. What she has believed right, she has done ; what she has believed wrong, 
she has desisted from doing. Of her wisdom, at all times, we will not speak ; we only 
exalt the unvarying integrity of her purpose. Not a savage fell slain by her sword, 
not a woman burned as a witch, not a bullet sped at Lexington or at Bunker Hill, but 
each act was done under obedience to that which was believed to be the Higher Powtr. 
Her wisdom may be impeached — her integrity, never. We do not forget her intol- 
erance, the connection of church and state, nor negro slavery, nor Hartford Conven- 
tions. They are all blemishes ; but they stand as evidence of want of wisdom, not 
want of integrity. 

It is needless to point out the brilliant passages of her history ; they are known. 
She was the first State planted and raised on this continent for hit^her motives than, 
mere gain ; the first to adopt the pure democracy in politics ; the first to declare uni- 
versal liberty, equality, and toleration ; and in her government, schools, literature, 
mercantile integrity, industry, and in the innovating power of her ideas, she is the first 
of all the States. She has sent so much vigor, power, enterprise, and ambition to the 
great North-west, that she may look up to her, and call her Mother. 

Hence she should have been the first to speed ruin to this rebellion, which struck at 
Plymouth Rock, at Bunker Hill, at Lexington, to destroy their sacred political signifi- 
cance forever. Not to have been in Baltimore, on the 19th of April, 1861, were worse 
than not to have been at Lexington, on the I9th of April, 1775. As her record in the 
establishment of independence was glorious, so is, and will be, her record in the second 
great war for independence. All her power, wealth, talent, genius, will come up to the 
labor, and she will do more than achieve, she will deserve success. 

ijegislative Action. 
Four facts stood out prominently in the response of Massachusetts to the Proclama- 
tion of the President. First, the excellent system for the organization and discipline 
of the military force of the State; second, the ascertaining at head-quarters of the 



number of officers and men who would respond instantly to any call of the President; 
third, the foresight that induced the Legislature, on the 3d of April, to pass a bill appro- 
priating $25,000, and authorizing the Adjutant-General to contract for overcoats, 
blankets, knapsacks, 200,000 ball cartridges, &c., for two thousand troops ; and, fourth, 
the fact that the volunteer militia, for three months previous to the outbreak, in antici- 
pation cf trouble in the South, wisely prepared themselves for action. In this case, to 
be forewarned was to be forearmed. The results of this action only go to show the force 
of that aphorism, " In peace prepare for war." 

The following resolves, contemplating the maintenance of the Union, were presented 
to the Legislature of Massachusetts, on the 18th of January, and free and full debate 
was invited upon them. They passed, however, with little or no debate, an indication 
that not partisanship, but true loyalty to the Constitutioa and the Union, inspired them. 
The following are the resolves : — 

*' Resolves tendering the aid of the Commonwealth to the President of the United States' 
in enforcing the laws and preserving the Union. 

" Whereas, Several States of the Union have, through the action of their people and 
authorities, assumed the attitude of rebellion againsf the national government; and 
whereas, treason is still more extensively diffused ; and whereas, the State of South 
Carolina, having first seized the post-office, custom house, moneys, arms, munitions of 
■war and fortifications of the fediral government, has, bv firing upon a vessel in the ser- 
vice of the United States, committed an act of war; and whereas, the forts and property 
of the United States, in Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana, and Florida, have been seized 
with hostile and treasonable intention; and whereas, senators and representatives in 
Congress avow and sanction these acts of treason and rebellion : therefore, 

" Resolved, That the Legislature of Massachusetts, now, as always, convinced of the 
inestimable value of the Union, and the necessity of preserving its blessings to our- 
selves and our posterity, regard with unmingled satisfaction the determination evinced 
in the recent firm and patriotic special message of the President of the United States, 
to amply arid faithfully discharge his constitutional duty of enforcing the laws and pre- 
serving the integrity of the Union ; and we proffer to him, through the Governor of the 
Commonwealth, such aid in men and money as he may require, to maintain the author- 
ity of the national government. 

" Resolved, That the Union-loving and patriotic authorities, representatives, and 
citizens of those States whose loyalty is endangered or assailed hy internal or external 
treason, who labor in behalf of the Federal Union with unflinching courage and pat- 
riotic devotion, will receive the enduring gratitude of the American people. 

" Resolved, That the Governor be requested to forward, forthwith, copies of the fore- 
going resolutions to the President of the United States, and the Governors of the several 
States. \^Approved January IZ, 1861." 

This was the first legislative action that was taken, in contemplation of such an issue 
as a great rebellion in the South. In these resolves the position of the State was defined. 
She was found to be true to the heritage of her fathers. She took a stand for law, and 
to maintain that Union inviolate that was threatened by treason, and under whose pro- 
tecting ajgis she had so long prospered in wealth, power, and peace. From that position 
she will never recede. 

The State of Virginia issued a call to the other States, to meet her in convention, to 
see what measures of peace and conciliation could be suggested. Congress passed and 
promulgated a call in sympathy with that wish. The matter came up for consideration 
before the Legislature of Massachusetts, and the project was opposed as extra constitu- 
tional. There were those found who did not favor the convention. Others, again, 
argued that New York, Illinois, Ohio, and Rhode Island, which States would be repre- 
sented, might, in that convention, make a new basis for a constitution, in derogation of 
ttie rights of Congress, and that the States absent might be considered as consenting by 
their silence. Others thought that Massachusetts already had her delegation in Con- 
gress, and that this was a sufficient representation upon all national questions. The 
question of sending delegates to this convention was finally considered on the 4th day 
of February. A call had been issued, signed by several of the most influential citizens 
of Boston and vicinity, for a meeting in Faneuil Hall the afternoon of the 4th. They 
saw and felt the necessity of an outward compliance, at least, with the call of Virginia, 
in order that Massachusetts should stand right on the record. Virginia alleged that 
she spoke in the spirit of peace ; we could do no less than meet her in the same spirit. 
This was the feeling of the majority of the people. But those taking an ultra position 
upon the question of slavery opposed the appointing of the commissioners, and strenu- 
ously urged that opposition. They did not believe in the honesty of Virginia ; they 
saw in her movement an attempt to coerce the North, by threats of dissolution of the 
Union, into extending further guaranties upon the question of slavery. Others replied 
that they owed little to courtesy, but much to the historical spirit of Massachusetts, and 
they did not think that she would be degraded by meeting Virginia upon her own 
ground. The discussion was warm in both branches of the Legislature. The spirit of 
conciliation prevailed, and the resolve passed the Senate. 

•' Resolve for the appoi)itment of Commissioners to attend a Convention to be held in the 
City of Washington. 
" Whereas, The Commonwealth of Massachusetts is desirous of a full and free confer- 
ence with the general government, and with any or all of the other States of the Union 


at any time and on every occasion when such conference may promote the welfare of 
the country ; and 

" Whereas, Questions of grave moment have arisen touching the powers of the govern- 
ment, and the relations between the different States of the Union ; and 

" Whereas, The State of Virginia has expressed a desire to meet her sister States in 
convention at Washington ; therefore, 

" Resolved, That the Governor of this Commonwealth, by and with the advice and con- 
sent of the Council, be and he hereby is authorized to appoint seven persons as commis- 
sioners, to proceed to Washington to confer with the general government, or with the 
separate States, or with any association of delegates from such States, and to report 
their doings to the Legislature at its present session ; it being expressly declared that 
their acts shall be at all times under the control and subject to the approval or rejection 
of the Legislature. [Approved February 5, 1861." 

The resolve was immediately approved by the Governor, and the following commis- 
sioners were appointed: — John B. Goodrich, of Stockbridge ; Charles Allen, of Wor- 
cester ; George S. Boutwell, of Groton ; Francis B. Crowninshield, of Boston ; Theophi- 
lus P. Chandler, of Brookline ; John M. Forbes, of Milton ; and Richard B. Waters, 
of Beverly. 

These gentlemen were distinguished for their integrity and general ability; and in 
them the State felt that her principles would be faithfully represented. This convention, 
on February 27th, submitted to Congress its plan of pacification ; but this plan failed to 
pacificate those who would not be pacified — those who were pledged to disunion and to 
war. Massachusetts, at least, had attempted conciHation. 

On the 3d of April, 1861, the Legislature pjissed another resolve, authorizing the 
Adjutant-General to equip 2000 soldiers for active service. This resolution called out 
considerable ridicule from the opposition press ; still, when the emergency came, the 
wisdom of the movement turned the ridicule to the other side. The following is a copy 
of the resolve : 

" Resolve relating to the Equipment of Troops for Active Service. 

" Resolved, That the adjutant and acting quartermaster-general be, and he is hereby 
authorized, under the direction of the governor and council, to provide, either by con- 
tract or otherwise, a sufficient number of overcoats, blankets, knapsacks, haversacks 
and other articles of equipment, camp utensils, and trenching tools, as niay be required 
to equip two thousand troops for active service, and a sum not exceeding twenty-five 
thousand dollars is hereby appropriated for that purpose. [Approved April 3, 1861." 

The Governor's Message to the Special Session, May 14, 1861. 

The Governor, in April, immediately after the fall of Sumter, issued a proclamation 
calling together the members of the Legislature, to meet in their several chambers at 
noon of the 14th day of May. They met at the appointed time, in extra session. After 
convening, a joint committee from the two houses waited upon the Governor, and 
informed him that they were ready to listen to any communication that he had to make 
to them. The Governor met them, and in his characteristic style addressed them upon 
the momentous issues of the hour. 

In his opinion, the occasion demands action, and not speech. A grand era has 
dawned, and nothing is perceived to discourage the American people. The federal gov- 
ernment is compelled to assert its rightful authority by an appeal to the stout hearts and 
strong arms of loyal men. Massachusetts, by the unanimous acclaim of her people, has 
inspired all departments of her public service with a perfect devotion to the cause of 
the country, and it now remains only for the Legislature to carry out more perfectly the 
ideas of the people. This is no war of sections, no war of North on South ; no war to 
avenge former wrongs, nor to perpetuate ancient griefs. It is the struggle of a people 
to vindicate their own rights, to retain and invigorate the institutions of their fathers. 
The guns pointed at Sumter announced to Major Anderson and his men their introduc- 
tion into the noble army of heroes of American history. 

The Proclamation of the President summoning the rebels to disperse, and the rally of 
the troops in Massachusetts, under all its circumstances of celerity of motion and bril- 
liancy of results, is unexampled. The telegraphic message from Washington convinced 
him that no small dependence was placed upon Massachusetts to be early in the field, 
and no delay was permitted, for by 9 o'clock on the Sabbath morning following the 
Monday on which the first telegram was received, the whole number of regiments de- 
manded from Massachusetts were already either in Washington, in Fortress Monroe, 
or on their way to the defence of the capital. 

The war expenditures were unhesitatingly incurred. The Executive and his council 
understood and relied upon the temper of the people and the support of the Legisla- 
ture. Not only had they supplied present, but had also anticipated coming wants in 
providing for military stores, clothing, equipments. All agents and departments of 
the service had sought economy no less than brilliancy and eflectiveness in the sphere 
of gallant enterprise. 

The disbursements in the military service, up to May 13th, were, for subsistence, 
540,222 24; clothing, ,^90,823 22; equipments, g30,565 78; transportation of troops, 
543,260 38; one half of steamer Cambridge, ^45,000 00; one half of steamer Pem- 
broke, 517,000; telegraphing, $272 76; making an aggregate of 5267,645 18. To 
this amount may be added 5100,000 more to cover contracts for clothing and equip- 
ments contracted for, and also an amount for a contemplated purchase of arms in 



Europe. The contracts in progress contemplated uniforms, &c. for new men. Nearly 
all these contracts and expenditures constituted a valid claim upon the federal govern- 

The Governor highly complimented private gentlemen, his military aids, and espe- 
cially the council, which had been in session daily for the month previous. He also 
complimented the Quarter-Master General, who had rendered efficient service after his 
appointment to a new office, created for the occasion, under the constitution and the 
general statutes, so to relieve the Adjutant-General of a portion of his responsibilities. 
He recommended that an appropriation be made to cover expenses incurred, and others 
that might be made. On the 27th of April, he had commissioned and sent a citizen of 
Massachusetts to Europe to purchase the Minnie rifle, or other efficient arms as could 
be procured. For this purpose he had been furnished with a letter of credit to the 
amount of £-50,000. The nautical school ship had also been fitted up, and presented 
by the collector of the port, with an aid to the revenue, wiih instruction to overhaul 
suspicious-looking vessels. A sense of insecurity along the coast, and the piratical 
demonstrations of Davis, induced them to purchase part of the steamers Cambridge 
and Pembroke for defence and transportation ; the Cambridge, especially, had performed 
brilliant service in conveying troops to Fortress Monroe, and up the Potomac to Wash- 

The next subject that engaged his attention was that of a State encampment. There 
were 129 newly enlisted companies in the active militia, induced to enlist by the pros- 
pect of being called immediately into the field. That these men might perfect them- 
selves in their profession, so as to be of substantial service to the State, and that other 
citizens might be left to pursue, undisturbed, their various avocations in private life, 
and that the future might be efficiently provided against, and also in answer to the 
earnest solicitation of several citizens, he recommended the establishment of a State 
encampment. He made also several minor suggestions concerning the conduct of such 
an encampment, and gave the whole into the hands of the Legislature. 

He also discouraged the practice of the towns in giving aid to the soldiers and compa- 
nies forming in them. It not only became a desultory and inefficient method of ren- 
dering assistance, but also incapacitated the towns for rendering assistance to the 
families of the soldiers while thty were away. The State was the proper authority to 
render any assistance necessary in forming the companies. He recommended the 
enrolling of the entire militia ; also a popular loan to be effected by instalments as 
might be deemed expedient by the executive department ; and the people of the State 
were exhorted to economy to provide against the necessities of the future. 

In this address the Governor showed shrewdness and foresight in the, various recom- 
mendations, and they generally met with the approval of the Legislature and the 

Extra Session, May, 1862. 

The Governor and Council, in prosecuting the preparations of the State to meet any 
emergency of war, made full use of the executive power in their hands. The necessities 
of the times, in their judgment, justified the use of that power. They relied fully 
upon the generosity and patriotism of the people to sustain them by any legislative 
action that was necessary to legalize all their acts. In this reliance they were not 
mistaken. When the Legislature came together in Extra Session, without opposition 
they commenced most appropriate legislation to support the previous action of the 
Executive powers. The act providing for the maintenance of the Union and the Con- 
stitution, legalizing the contracts, obligations and agreements made by the Governor 
and Council, providing for a Union Fund, and the issuing of Government Scrip, &c., 
is as follows : 

An Act to provide for the Maintenance of the Union and Constitution. 
Be it enacted, ^c,, as follows : 

Sect. 1. The contracts, obligations and agreements heretofore made by the gov- 
ernor or the executive council, or any officer or person, with his or their sanction and

the defence of the United States, or for arming, equipping and disciplining, and for the

defending, sustaining and maintaining in its full integrity the authority of the govern-

he may, with the advice of the council, appoint and commission all needful officers and 
agents, and niay fix their rank and pay. 

Sect. 3. The governor and council are hereby authorized and empowered to

public defence, or for the discipline and instruction of a military force. 

Sect. 4. The governor, with the advice of tl,e council, is hereby authorized to pay 
out of the fund created under this act, any of the troops of this Commonwealth which

ment of such payments out of the treasury of the United States, as may be agreed upon 
between him and the federal government.

monwealth is hereby authorized to issue scrip or certificates of debt, in the name and 
on behalf of the Commonwealth, and under his signature and the seal of the 
Commonwealth, to an amount not exceeding three millions of dollars ; and the proceeds 
of such scrip so issued shall be passed to the credit of said Union Fund, and the same 
is hereby appropriated for the purpose of paying all liabilities incurred or to be incurred 
under this act and the acts herein mentioned ; and the governor is authorized, fiora 
time to time, to draw his warrant upon the treasurer for so much as may be needed. 

Sect. 6. Such scrip or certificates of debt shall bear interest not exceeding six per 
cent, per annum, payable semi-annually, on the first days of January and July in each 
year, and may be issued at such times and in pieces of such amount as shall be fixed 
by the governor and council. All such scrip issued in pieces of five hundred dollars or

under the direction of the governor and council, and for that purpose shall advertise 
for proposals for so much of the same as may be needed, bearing interest at a rate not 
exceeding six per cent, per annum. 

Sect. 7. This act shall take effect upon its passage. [Approved May 2\, 1861. 

In addition to the foregoing, they passed another, authorizing the treasurer and 
receiver-general of the Commonwealth to issue certificates of debt in the name of the 
Commonwealth, for such sum, not exceeding seven millions, as the governor and council 
may direct. It is as follows : 

An Act in addition to an Act to provide for the Maintenance of the Union and 
the Constitution. 

Whereas, The people of Massachusetts regard with like feelings of loyalty and 
affection the government of the United States, and that of their own Commonwealth, 
and deem it fit that the arms of each should be strengthened by all which the other 
can give ; 

Andwhereas, Some emergency may arise during the recess of the legislature, in 
which the aid of Massachusetts may be of service to the general government in its 
financial arrangements: therefore 
Be it enacted, S^c, as follows : 

Sect. 1. The governor, with the advice of the council, at any time during the recpss 
of the legislature, should such emergency arise, is hereby authorized to direct the

semi-annually, ar:d interest-warrants, signed by the treasurer and receiver-jjeneral, shall 
be attached thereto. Said scrip shall be countersigned by the governor of the Common- 
wealth, and be deemed a pledge of the faith and credit of the Commonwealth for the 
redemption thereof. 

Sect. 2. The scrip to be so issued may be sold in such manner as the governor 
shall direct, and the proceeds thereof loaned to the government of the United 
States, or expended in purchasing from the government of the United States its

the secretary of the treasury of the United States in exchange for obligations of the 
United States government of corresponding amount. 

Sect. 3. This act shall take effect upon its passage. [Approved May 21, 1861.

act in addition thereto, passed at the present session of the legislature; he shall at 
the same time report the amount of all scrip or certificates of debt of the United States 
which shall have been received by this Commonwealth, from the United States, under

utensils, uniforms, arms, and equipments for the accommodation and use of not exceed- 
ing five regiments and one battery of artillery of six pieces ; and may, from time to

that he may select to answer such call, and that they thereupon will enter and remain

tive powers, anything in existing laws to the contrary notwithstanding. Any of the

Sect. 16. Whenever a requisition or call shall be made by the president of the

Sect. 21. This act shall take effect upon its passage. [Apjjroved May 23, 18G1. 

The families of those fit^hting the battles of their country were not forgotten. They 
were not to be left to suffer, or 1o the msufficient charities of neighborhoods and indi- 
viduals. This act will be studied by the families of all the soldiers. We give it entire. 

An Act in aid of the Families of Volunteers, and for other purposes. 
Be it enacted, &.c., as follows : 

Sect. 1. Any town or city may raise money by taxation, and if necessary apply the 
same, under the direction of their selectmen or mayor and aldermen or city council, for 
the aid of the wife, and of the children under sixteen years of age, of any one of their 
inhabitants, who, as a member of the volunteer militia of this State, may have been 
mustered into or enlisted in the service of the United States, and for each parent, 
brother, or sister, or child, who at the time of his enlistment was dependent oa him 
for support. 


Sect. 2. Any city or town may by vote raise money to defray any expense already

militia who have been mustered into the service of the United States for the term of 
three months, shall be valid during such term, and no pay shall hereafter be allowed 
by any town or city for the expense of drilling. 

Sect. 4. Any city or town, when danger from attack from the sea is apprehended,

Commonwealth, and carefully examined and approved by him. 

Sect. 7. A statement certified and sworn to by a majority of the board of selectmen

to the auditor of the Commonwealth on or before the fifth day of January in each year, 
of the full amount due such city or town for aid furnished in accordance with this act. 

Sect. 8. This act shall take effect upon its passage. l^Ajiproved May 23, 1861. 

The foregoing is the substance of the legislative action at the extra session, upon the 
momentous issne of the hour. For once in the history of Masssachusetts legislation, 
party spirit and party lines were laid aside. Men forgot their variances and mere party 
interests in the great and common danger. The sound of the cannon of Sumter 
aroused all the nobler passions of their natures, and legislators thought of and 
legislated for their country. The necessity for action was not questioned. They 
did not ask, shall we have a war ? shall we assist this domestic contest ? is the safety 
of the Union worth the sacrifice of war? can we succeed if war is attempted? It was 
enough that the Union was threatened, that is worth all of life, and of fortune and of 
honor to preserve; there can be no question between action and inaction. The Gov- 
ernor and the Legislature knew that they could rely upon the firm support of the peo- 
ple in all constitutional measures, hence legislated fearlessly. Relying upon these, 
they sent commissioners to the Peace Convention; empowered the Governor and Council 
to pledge the faith of the State for money ; to organize camps of instruction at great 
expense, that men might be carefully trained for the duties of war; legalized acts that 
had been done without full statute authority to do them, because they were demanded 
by the hour; provided for taking United States scrip for their own, thus giving the 
faith of Massachusetts to help the finances of the Union; and provided ample aid for 
the families of volunteers. The Governor's message, recommendations, and the action 
of the Legislature were both alike honorable to the State, and placed her in a position 
of efficiency and honor. 

The Jackson Club. 
On the evening of April ISth, the Jackson Club, a Democratic organization, held a 
meeting at its head-quarters. They discussed the present political aspect of the time. 
Supposed to sympathize with the South, with those who were in rebellion against the 
government, in political principle, they soon showed that they were capable of rising 
above party, and standing upon the plane of their country. They did not assemble as 
a political party, but as citizens who were loyal to the Union, to meet startling facts, 
to sustain the sacred flag, to put themselves on the record for, and not against the 
government. The hopes of the world were centred in this republic, and now is not 
the time to permit it to be destroyed. The resolutions passed had the Jacksouian ring 
in them. They looked upon the present crisis as one in which the existence of the 
government was at stake ; upon this civil war as forced upon the North. They resolved 
to stand by the Union, to sustain the President and his administration by all the con- 
stitutional means in their power. 



Adopted Citizens. 

The evening of the 16th in Boston was distinguished, among other things, by the 
meeting and expression of the sentiment of the adopted citizens of the State and 
country. Ireland, in America, could not be quiet in such a time. She, always re- 
nowned for her talk, would talk now. The spirit of Emmett, of Burke, of O'Connell, 
was burning in their veins, and they sprang to the rescue the moment that they saw 
treason to the flag arming itself for war. The history of the Old World taught them 
that the greatest sufferings of nations had been caused by internal strife and division, 
and it was our duty to profit by their example. Here we have a free press, religious 
toleration for all, educational advantages without a parallel in the Old World, and self- 
government ; and, if these failed, there would be no more an asylum for the oppressed 
of Europe. Andrew Jackson and Richard Montgomery, with Irish blood in their 
veins, had fought upon American battle-fields, and in those battle-fields the sons of 
Ireland held an inheritance, which was sacred to them, and to the children of the Pil- 
grims. Though Democrats, in their resolutions they condemned the late President for 
his inaction, and all the acts of those traitors who had been long at work for the disrup- 
tion of the Union. Every peaceful offer of President Lincoln had buen interpreted 
into imbecility ; and now was the time to teach such traitors that the Union was capa- 
ble of the virtue of self-perservation, and of the virtue of defence, when forbearance 
was no longer a virtue. They believed it the duty of every adopted citizen of Irish 
birth or parentage, who enjoyed the inestimable privileges of our free government, to 
cast aside all past distinctions, and unite as one man for the support of the national 
administration. They called upon all of Irish birth to stand true to the country which 
had become the home of so many millions of their race, and of the oppressed people 
of the Old World, and not to permit the liberties, for which Washington fought and 
Montgomery died, to be trampled under foot by the slave oligarchy of the Soutli. 
This was the feeling of Ireland in America. She came here to find liberty, law, bread, 
education, life, and she was enamored of our State, and that State she would defend to 
the last. 

Bank Action. 
The State must have means ; it must have money ; and no sooner had the sound of 
the guns of Sumter reached the merchants and brokers of Boston, than they felt that 
they had been attacked in their pockets, in their bank-vaults, in their granite ware- 
houses, in their mercantile career and prosperity. They replied in columbiads of gold, 
which sent their heavy shot and calibre into the very heart of rebellion, and made it 
tremble. On the 17th of April the Directors of the Suffolk Bank held a meeting and 
voted an advance to the Governor of the Commonwealth — a loan of $100,000 — to be 
used in the present emergency, and subject to the future approval of the Legislature. 
They also voted to take the treasury notes of the Secretary of the Treasury of the 
United States, at 6 per cent., to the amount of ^100,000, at par. These gentlemen 
knew what peace was worth, what law was worth, and they intended to pay for it. 
The Webster Bank also upon the same day voted a loan of $50,000 to the State. 

This was not sufficient ; a call was issued to the managers of the Boston bank<. and 
a meeting was held in answer to that call, at the Clearing House, on the 18th of April, 
with Daniel Dewey, President of the Hamilton Bank, in the chair. The object of the 
meeting was stated to be such tender of money to the State Government as the public 
exigencies may require. A resolution was immediately presented that the banks of 
Boston loan to the State Government ten per cent, on their capital, in such sums as 
mi»ht be demanded by the Commonwealth. They deemeil that the quickest way to 
suppress this rebellion was to assure the government of the hearty support of the 
monied interest. This resolution, after an opportunity for the expression of such 
patriotic sentiments as the members entertained, passed unanimously. This placed 
nearly the sum of ^4,000,000 at the disposal of the State. The following is a list of 
the banks, with their presidents, and the note they sent to the Governor, and their 

The Boston Banks unite to aid the Commonivealth. 
To his Excellency, John A. Andrew, Governor of the Commonwealth of Massa- 
chusetts : —

sums of money beyond its cash means. To meet such requirements, the following 
named banks in tliis city will answer the call of the Treasurer, under your authority,

This patriotism of the banks was not monopolized by those of Boston. There was 
other virtue in Massachusetts. Among those reported as tendering loans to the State 
at the same time, was the Randolph Bank, $25,000; the Massasoit Bank, of Fall 
River, $30,000 ; Columbian Bank, #-30,000; Revere Bank, $50,000; Mount WoUaston 
Bank, #25,000 ; and the banks of Worcester, $300,000. $850,000 had been tendered 
to the State, for meeting the exigencies of war, almost before the President's proclama- 
tion had been read by the people ; and this, too, exclusive of the amount tendered by 
the Boston Association of Banks. In addition to these, the Lynn Mechanics' Bank 
voted $25,000; the Bunker Hill Bank, Charlestown, $30,000; the Newton Bank, 
$25,000 ; and ttie New England Mutual Life Insurance Company unanimously voted a 
loan of $100,000 to the State. 

And so the capital flowed into the hands of the authorities from all parts of the 
State. The Western counties were not behind in their substantial testimonials of 
patriotism and confidence. Money was not a want of the authorities. The enterprise 
and thrift of the State had not laid up its store in vain ; the day of trial came, and it 
was used. 

The Boston Board of Trade. 

On the 18th, the Boston Board of Trade met at the Merchants' Exchange, to express 
their sentiments upon the crisis. In their opinion, in the present crisis of the national 
affairs, all good citizens and all associations, especially those connected with commer- 
cial affairs, should let their views be known to the government in some public manner. 
As members of the Board of Trade in the City of Boston, individually and collectively, 
they tendered the government of the United States their entire sympathy in the 
measures now being taken for the suppression of the rebellion, and they also recom- 
mended the most vigorous and effective means to restore authority where the standard 
of revolt had been raised. They looked upon the recent proclamation of Jefferson 
Davis, inviting persons to fit out vessels to cruise against the peaceful commerce of the 
citizens of the United States, as inviting to piracy, and meriting the stern rebuke of 
every honest man, and invited the government to protect commerce by most vigorous 
means. They believed that the prompt response of the citizen soldiers of this and 
other States, and the patriotic action of the banks, merit the thanks of the whole 
country, and showed that the community had entire confidence in the ability and power 
of both the State and national governments. These views were unanimously adopted. 
The merchants of Boston were found where honor and justice commended the cause. 

Nineteenth of April in Boston. 

The 19th of April, 1861, will not soon be forgotten. It has become one of the sacred 
days of American history, we may say of the history of liberty, and of the race. It 
was celebrated here as the anniversary of the memorable battle of Lexington, by 
salutes, the display of flags, ringing of bells, and speeches. There was a drill upon 
the Common of one of the light artillery companies ; and, at 12 o'clock, 100 guns were 
fired as a salute. They subsequently were received by speeches, &c., at the State House, 
from tiie Governor. At Lexington appropriate recognition was made of the day. At 



Worcester there was a celebration by the dedication services of the raising of a monu- 
ment to Col. Timothy Bigelow, at which the city government, the fire companies, the 
temperance societies, and the German Turners assisted, with a large concourse of 

But the great feature of the day was the reception of the news of the attack upon 
the 6th Regiment in Baltimore, and its successful passage through the city. The news 
came of the attack, and men gatliered thick in the streets, devouring the bulletin- 
boards with their eyes. The crowds grew excited, uneasy, turbulent. They felt that 
they all stood at the door of battle in this attack upon their brothers who had left them 
but a few hours before. Men bit their lips in their anger, and set their teeth together, 
and showed front which would have been terror to Baltimore. The news came that 
the glorious 6th had fought their way through, when the shout of exultation ran along 
the street which told that Massachusetts honored Massachusetts steel. It was the 
first blood shed, the first victory, and she had the honor, as in the first Revolution. 
The stars and stripes never looked more glorious than on that night, in the eyes of the 
sons of the Old Bay State. 

Tlie Coast Guard. 
At the recommendation of Hon. R. B. Forbes, the merchants met in the Merchants' 
Exchange, on April 19th, to see to the organization of a coast defence. Mr. Forbes 
stated that they feared no danger of an invasion of the harbor, but that the object was 
to drill a class of men, not acquainted with the military, in the use of large guns. He 
did not know how soon their services might be wanted in the navy, or some scientific 
defence of our merchant vessels from the lawless invaders of the seas. The Governor, 
too, had been consulted, and he sympathized deeply with the project ; and so, also, did 
the Board of Trade. Gentlemen testified their willingness to enter into the project, 
and their judgment as to its efficiency, by the amount that they subscribed. Mr. 
Forbes would give his time in getting up the enterprise, and accept a subordinate 
position among the officers. Messrs. Lombard, Snow and Upton then subscribed $1,000 
each. In their resolutions passed upon the occasion, they viewed the present crisis 
with overwhelming anxiety, and believed that the merchants and seamen of Massachu- 
setts should respond heartily to the proposed plan of Mr. Forbes. This was but one 
circumstance to show how the " solid men of Boston" looked upon the war of the 
South upon the Union. 

April 22d in Boston and Vicinity. 

On the 22d of April, a large meeting of the ladies was held in Charlestown, to be 
called " The Soldiers' Relief Society," and to hold communication with the families of 
the soldier-;, and tender them sympathy, counsel and aid. The wife of Mayor 
Ilutchins was president, and others were chosen to complete the organization, com- 
prising names honorable in the records of the city. The Mayor then stated that the 
city government had appropriated $'10,000 for the relief of the families of volunteers, 
and ex-Mayor Sawyer stated that he had received a check from a citizen for the same 
purpose, on the Bunker Hill Bank, and also a note was read stating that ten physicians 
of the city had offered to attend to the families of volunteers, free of charge, during 
their absence. 

The City of Boston, on the 22d, also took other action than offering of money. The 
Board of Aldermen passed a series of resolutions pledging the moral and material sup- 
port of the City of Boston, with all its power and ability, to the Government of the* 
United States. They also put partisanship under their feet, by calling upon the people 
of Boston for an oblivion of party differences, and an alliance of all good citizens in 
vindication of the violated laws. They said that the revolted States stood before the 
civilized world defenceless and convicted of an assault upon the common polity of 
nations. To the loyal brethen of the revolted States, they renewed their assurances of 
fidelity to all the compacts and compromises of the Constitution; and, at the same 
time, respectfully urged upon the President to pursue such a constitutional policy as 
shall best conduce to the union and harmony of the several States. The resolutions 
were passed by a unanimous vote, and transmitted to the President. 

In tlie evening, the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company met in their armory, 
in Faneuil Hall. One hundred and eighty members attended, and offered their services 
to the government; and also voted that the families of those of the company who 
might fall in the service of their country should be taken care of by the company, as a 

On the same evening, the Massachusetts Homoeopathic Medical Society met, and 
tendered their gratuitous services to famihes of those gone to the war. They also 
passed a series of resolutions sympathizing with the government, and pledging their 
support in this her hour of trial. 

Among the ofiers of assistance reported this dav, $2000 were raised in Plymouth ; 
$.5,000 in Marblehead; $10,000 in Quincy ; $.5,00'J in Abington ; $1,000 in Maiden; 
$5,000 in Weymouth ; $4,000 in Jamaica Plain. The Barnst;..ble Bank, of Yarmouth, 
voted to loan to the State $33,000; $10,000 was appropriated at Cambridge; $1,700 in 
Waltham ; $3,000 in Pawtucket ; $15,000 in Brookline, and $2,425 in Kewton. An- 
drew Carney gave $500 to the Irish volunteers; and throughout the vicinity of Boston, 
where anything was done, the patriotism of the people was substantially sustained by 
offerings of material aid. 


The 24th of April, 
The record of this day, Jilce that of the rest, is good for Massachusetts. Enlistments, 
drillins; of recruits, formation of home defence companies, the filling of vacancies in 
regular military organizations, all proceeded with an unabated enthusiasm. A petition 
was in circulation asking the Governor to employ the School Ship Massachusetts and 
her tender, to be fitted up and proceed to sea, for the protection of the Bay and its 
ports. Flag raisings were extemporized, and the stars and stripes went out to the 
breeze, with speech, cheer, and music discoursing national airs. In Union Park 
one was flung from a staff 134 feet in height, and Union Park enjoyed a day of 
festivity in the indulgence of its patriotism, — happy, though sad the occasion. Major 
Cobb, the late commander of the Boston Light Artillery, having received the authority 
to enroll a new company to man a battery, opened his recruiting room for two hours, 
and in that time 107 names were put down. This was not slow to battle. 

The presidents of the various insurance companies met in State street, to consider 
the subject of sending out a steamer to the Gulf of Mexico, to cruise for and capture 
such vessels as might be found carrying the Confederate flag, and seeking to prey 
upon our commerce. The plan was to send out a large steamer, carrying 300 men and 
10 guns. A committee visited the executive authorities, at the State House, and they 
were cordially recommended to the authorities at Washington. The steamer was to 
sail under the authority and commission of the United States, but the expenses were 
to be paid by State street, — that street which has no bottom to its vaiilts. 

Another significant fact, or indication of public sentiment, was that ex-Governor 
Banks was to have lectured before the Mercantile Library Association in the evening ; 
but, in a letter to the committee, he declined lecturing, stating that the change of 
public affairs seemed to him to forbid the discussion of ordinary topics at this time ; 
and stating that there should be but one subject in the mind of any citizen of the 
United States at this time, and that the preservation of the government of his country. 
The Webster Regiment, which Fletcher Webster commenced raising on Sunday, was 
reported as quite full, and even overflowing ; and aid of money came in from many and 
honorable men to see that it was immediately put into fighting condition. 

The United States Steam-Frigate Niagara heaved its great hulk into our harbor on 
this day, and absurd rumors were in circulation that the officers and men sympathized 
with secession, and that she was to be turned over to the rebels. The oath of alle- 
giance was administered anew to both officers and men. Several of the officers were 
sworn, hailing from Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia, and four only 
were found to serve Mammon. 

Roxbury followed upon her patriotic resolutions, by a meeting to organize a home- 
guard (not one of the guards " not to leave town, save in case of invasion "j. 

An adjourned meeting of the British residents of Boston and vicinity was held at 
Chapman Hall, in the evening, when they decided to form a rifle company for home 
protection. So also the Scotchmen of Boston, animated by the same spirit, met and 
commenced the organization of a volunteer company. 

The New England Guards, seeing the exposed condition of our harbor, and the fort 
with few guns and no men, offered their services to do duty at Fort Independence, and 
it was accepted, when the order was issued to the members to report themselves. 

Not men alone, but boys felt their duties to their country. The boys of the Quincy 
School brought in $200 to their teacher to present suitable testimonials to such past 
members of the school as might enlist for the defence of the Union. 

Framingham reported a new drill-club, .^3,000 given for outfits for a volunteer com- 
pany, andi'a loan of $25,000 tendered by her bank to the State. This was 12^ per cent, 
of her capital. 

April 25th. 
April 2oth came in big with preparation for war. The people were up and working. 
Tne number of officers in the Niagara appeared to-day to be twelve, instead of four, 
who declined to take the oath of allegiance. They were all from Southern States. 
Lieut. Brown, of the Niagara, was, by order of the Governor, arrested for uttering trea- 
sonable sentiments, and for supposed treasonable proclivities; but subsequently he was 
discharged, and permitted to depart. The Navy Yard, yesterday, was aroused by orders 
to put everything in the yard, that could be made available, in readiness for sea. This 
required labor on the Mississippi, Minnesota, Colorado, the Massachusetts and South 
Carolina, the Vincennes, Preble and Bainbridge. This required a great addition to the 
labor force of the yard. 

Among the military items of the day, a messenger left for Washington to get 
consent for Major Gordon to raise a regiment to serve through the war. Twenty 
companies had already been accepted by the Governor ; and a fine company of 61 men, 
selected from our merchants and tradesmen, had been enlisted for the defence of the 
city. The sub-committee of the city government appropriated $10,000 for rations of 
the volunteer troops of the city. The merchants of Franklin street raised a flag from 
a new flag staff 125 feet high, with prayer, speech and music. The New England 
Guards went to Fort Independence, and were cheered along their march. The Tigers 
met in the evening at the armory in Boylston Hall, to consider what action was 
necessary from them in the present condition of the country. A Tiger of 1812, Mr. 
Timothy Dodd, called the meeting to order. Speeches were made by the talking 
members ; letters were read from absent members, and a committee appointed to draft 
a plan of organization. The Coast Guard met and completed its organization. The 



amount subscribed thus far was $9,800 ; and amount of goods ordered for equipment, 
$10,776. The projector, Hon. R. B. Forbes, was elected Qommander ; and from 150 
who had subscribed themselves, 100 were selected to form the company. 

One of the most patriotic donations of the day was the gift of the teachers of the 
public schools of Boston, who volunteered a material deduction in their salaries, dis- 
counting 10, 12^, 15, 25 per cent., to be appropriated for the relief of volunteers and 
their families. This gave the generous sum of $13,000 for this purpose. This was to 
continue during the existence of the war. 

April 26tli. 

The towns were no less alive and stirring than the great cities. Patriotism is not 
local; it warms hearts in the mountains and the Tales, as well as those dungeoned 
within brick walls. A large and enthusiastic meeting of the citizens of HoUiston was 
reported, where $2,500 was subscribed, and 86 names obtained for a company of vol- 
unteers. It was also voted, at this meeting, to instruct the town, at a town meeting, 
to raise sufficient money to support the families of the volunteers while they were 
absent. In Haverhill a new company had been formed, and attached to the Seventh 
Eegiment. On the evening of the 26th, the citizens of Chelsea aasembled around the 
City Hall to testify their fealty to the government by unfurling a beautiful flag from 
the top of the building, which was the gift of the ladies of the city. After the invoca- 
tion of a blessing upon that flag and the dear country, the children welcomed it by the 
Star Spangled Banner in hearty music. It appeared that Watertown had held a town 
meeting, the largest ever known there, and resolutions had been adopted, unanimously, 
declaring that the town pledge itself to adopt the families of those who had enlisted 
for the war, and of those who might join the company. $5,000 were appropriated for 
this purpose, and a bounty of $30 to each soldier "hose company was accepted by the 
government within 30 days. A private subscription was started for the purpose of 
equipping town volunteers, and $1,600 was raised. In the town of Westboro' a loyal 
meeting was held ; 50 names were added to the volunteer list, among which were a 
physician and the Methodist clergyman. ^5,000 were appropriated, to be expended in 
the purchase of uniforms, furnishing extra pay to the company, and for the support of 
the families of the needy. Voluntary contributions were also pledged to the amount of 
$3,000. Not only large, but small towns, came up to the order. 

On the evening of April 23, a large meeting was held at Lynnfield Centre, when 
addresses were made, and resolutions unanimously passed, to make all needful provi- 
sion for the soldiers and their families. Among those who joined for the war were the 
chorister, sexton, and bell-ringer of the Congregational Church. The most noticeable 
call of this day was that made by the citizensof Cambridge and vicinity for a meeting 
to be held under the venerable elm on Cambridge Common, where Washington 
unsheathed his sword in taking command of the American Army. The call was signed 
by Jared Sparks, the professors of the university, and the most distinguished citizens 
Cambridge, the scene of some of the first acts of the American Revolution, must again 
show power under her time-honored elm. 

Chester Park, Cambridge, and Suffolk Bar Meetings. 

On the 27th, Chester Park threw out a flag to the breeze, when the Hon. Edward 
Everett, Hon. B. F. Hallett, and Rev. Mr. Hepworth, and others, took part on the 
occasion. The speech of Mr. Everett was characterized by his usual grace of delivery, 
and an unusual force and elegance ; and Mr. Hallett spoke with true patriotism and 
fidelity to the country. 

On the same day, the citizens of Cambridge and vicinity held the meeting called 
under the venerable elm on the Common in that city, where Washington unsheathed 
his sword on taking command of the American Army. Ex-presidents and members of 
the university were in attendance. Sparks, Longfellow, Palfrey, Dana, and Parker 
were present, — so also was ex-Governor Banks, and others equally prominent. Hon. 
John G. Palfrey offered resolutions, in which they said that they consecrated themselves 
to the service of freedom and the country, under the Washington Elm ; that they, 
citizens of Middlesex, the first battle-field of the American Revolution, cherished the 
memory of their revolutionary champions and martyrs ; that, living under their pros- 
perity, under the benign shadow of charity and love, they would be dastards and 
recreants if they did not stand firmly by the government. The meeting was charac- 
terized by that dignity and ability which might be expected from the character of those 

The members of the Bar in Boston could not be silent, according to their usual 
custom. A large attendance was present, and all seemed actuated by the same spirit that 
animated Otis, Quincy, Adams and Payne in other revolutionary times. Judge Thomas, 
of the Supreme Judicial Court, was chosen chairman, and made a close, nervous, 
logical and able speech upon the occasion. In speaking for the Bench, he said that we 
were a judiciary, and must conduct this contest according to the elements of constitu- 
tional law. There must be a force in Christianity, in civilization, in law, which the 
South cannot stand against. Patriotic speeches were made by other members of the 
Bar, and resolutions were read by Judge Abbott, stating that the rebellion existing in 
the South was a blind and selfish attempt to subvert the clearest rights of majorities, 
and the most sacred principles of constitutional law ; that they would forget party 
distinctions, and unite to uphold the government ; that they would do the business of 
the lawyers who went to jeopardize their lives for the country, and that of the families 
of those who had gone to the war. This gave the sanction of the most conservative 


members of society to the war. There was not a dissenting voice among them ; so 
that the movement of the North could not be considered as violent, passionate, and 
revolutionary. This meeting was held on the 29th of April. 

May 1st —The First Dead, the Old South, &c. 

May 1st, the Adjutant-General issued an order to Major-General Andrews, of the 
First Division of M. V. M., to take command of Forts Warren and Independence in 
Boston Harbor, and take immediate measures to have them placed in condition to 
receive such new organizations as it might be deemed proper to place therein for drill 
and discipline. The companies organized to form what was called the " Webster 
Regiment" were ordered to quarters immediately in Fort Warren. 

As another indication of the alacrity with which men flocked to the standard of 
their country, we mention the fact that the board of military examiners at the State 
House were busily employed every day in examining persons elected to office in the 
various military companies of volunteers, to ascertain their fitness to hold commissions. 
And an idea of the number may be formed when we state that more applied each day 
for examination than could be attended to. The medical staff also was compelled to 
designate physicians to examine the volunteers, purchase medical stores, and attend 
otherwise to the general health of the volunteers. 

Ex-Governor Washburn, of the Cambridge Law School, sent one hundred flannel shirts 
and drawers, one hundred pocket-handkerchiefs, with the promise of a hundred hos- 
pital shirts, which were fitted and made by the ladies of Cambridge ; and the Governor 
handsomely acknowledged the note by saying that " in glancing over their names I 
realized most completely how great a hold the cause, in relief of which these troops 
are mustered, has upon every social class in our community, — that there are no hands 
in Massachusetts too delicate to contribute something to the work ; " and stated that 
the next letter opened was from a poor needle-woman, who had but little, but was 
desirous to give something of that little for her country. 

May 1st, the remains of the three brave men who perished in the streets of Balti- 
more, as the first sacrifice of the war, arrived in the city at the Worcester Depot. 
They were received by the Governor, his aids, and the Independent Corps of Cadets, 
and escorted to King's Chapel, where they were temporarily placed in the vault, to 
remain until recognition. As soon as the news of their arrival came, many of the 
stores and flags along the streets where they were expected to pass, were draped in 
mourning. The bodies were placed in hearses, and then covered with black velvet, and 
the stars and stripes. The horses wore black plumes. The Cadets marched with 
unfixed bayonets and reversed arms, and the band played the slow music of the Dead 
March in Saul, as the procession moved through the streets. There was no levity in 
the thousands who thronged to witness the scene. Each man took it home to himself. 
As the bodies passed, all hats were removed ; men did not speak to each other on the 
walk; they were silent, but felt war, — terrible war. That silence was ominous. It 
told where slept a power for retribution, if need be, upon the authors of our misfor- 
tune. The bodies of those slain were identified as those of Addison O. Whitney, and 
Luther C. Ladd of Lowell, and Sumner H. Needham of Lawrence. These were the 
first-fruits of fame plucked from the rebellion. 

The Old South, May 1st, 1861, again threw forth the flag of the Union, as in 1776 
and 1812. Then it was to beat back the foreign enemies of our country ; this time to 
warn those domestic enemies in our midst, that the people of Massachusetts were true 
to the spirit of Christianity and the principles of liberty. The historic interest attached 
to the old church, and its location in the centre of the city, gave an unusual solemnity 
to the scene. The neighboring house-tops, and windows, and the streets, were filled 
with spectators. All were anxious to see consecrated anew those old walls, where 
gathered the fathers of the Revolution to take sage counsel in war, — where Warren 
and Hancock and the indomitable Adams used to meet to devise means of defence 
and attack, to encourage each other's hearts, and the hearts of the people. There 
Wairen went, and climbed through the window to address the people, and move them 
to defence, in the face and defiance of the British soldiers thronging the aisles. 
"Within a few feet of the spot was the immortal Franklin born, whose adroit cunning 
and sound common-sense philosophy fashioned itself so admirably into the work of 
independence and the formation of the republic. Hands consecrated to the labor of 
Christianity assisted in the work. The senior and junior pastors of the society, with 
prayer and speech, gave moral impressiveness and dignity to the occasion. Amid such 
scenes as the above, were the first lessons of the war given out. 

May 2. — The JHew England Association of the Soldiers of 1812. 

May 2d was signalized by the meeting of the New England Association of the 
Soldiers of 1812, at the residence of their President, Col. Thomas Aspinwall. The 
fire that once animated those patriotic hearts against England, in her aggressions half 
a century ago, was equally alive now to lay strong hands upon those domestic enemies 
that might plot to destroy that they might rise up to political power upon the ruins. 
They adopted an address to the veterans of the last war throughout the country. 
They said that the country was defended in 1812 — nearly fifty years since — against a 
foreign foe, that it is now threatened by rebels within ; that the Union founded by the 
heroic sacrifice of our fathers, and cemented by the blood of their children in the 
second war for independence, is now in extreme peril from conspirators within, who 
have been warmed into life by its beneficent protection ; that they also, in 1812, gave 



their youthful energies to their country ; though now too old to encounter the hard- 
ships of a campaign, yet they might do something in the way of instruction and disci- 
pline ; and that they should, without reference to party, give a firm support to the 
government, the Constitution, the Union, and the enforcement of the laws. 

May 4th in Boston, Lawrence, &c. 

May 4th witnessed the last obsequies of Sumner H. Needham, killed at Baltimore, 
at his home in Lawrence. Lawrence was proud of the honor which had fallen to her, 
and in this last observance of burial rites, she nobly and appropriately honored the dead. 
The city government took charge of the body, and buried it with military honors. The 
pastor preached a fine and characteristic sermon from the text, " He, being dead, yet 
speaketh." He stated one thing noticeable for its philosophic force — " Humanity is 
the central idea of Republicanism ; " and so it should ever be, if we would honorably 
maintain our peculiarly American liberties. 

Among the towns reported May 4 as having given assistance, Maiden voted $3,000 
at one time, and at another ;$10,000, for the assistance of the families of volunteers. 
Weymouth voted ^5,000 to uniform the Weymouth Guards. Marshfield, where repose 
the remains of Webster, among other liberal provisions for her volunteers, voted 
$■5,000 ; Sutton, #3,000, and Georgetown, $5,000. So we see that patriotism was not 
confined to Boston alone. The country towns were active to the full measure of their 

The love of the country penetrated through foreign birth and prison walls, so that 
an educated German, in the Charlestown State's Prison, said, after stating that he had 
been in all the hard-fought battles between Vera Cruz and Mexico, that " his heart's 
desire was to serve his adopted country once more." The inmates of the State's Prison 
were set to work manufacturing Minie rifle balls, tin dippers and canteens, crash towels 
and uniforms. In completing large portions of the work, the inmates were compelled 
to labor all night, but it was done by them with the most cheerful alacrity. They felt, 
though in prison under the laws, that those laws should be sustained for the benefit of 
the country. 

Sunday at Fort "Warren. 

The soldiers had collected in considerable numbers in Fort Warren. On May 5th, 
the Sabbath, for the first time, divine services were held in the open air. With the 
implements and paraphernalia of war around, they became peculiarly impressive. An 
eloquent and appropriate sermon was preached by the Rev. Mr. Hepworth, to a large 
and distinguished crowd of spectators, and to the soldiers of the Webster Regiment, 
and the Fourth Battalion drawn up in parade. After the clergyman concluded his 
remarks, he requested the audience to sing " America ; " and the noble and patriotic 
old tune never before seemed so sweet and voluble of music. After the benediction, 
there was a dress parade. The quietness of the scene and the deportment of the com- 
pany was such as to make the occasion entirely in keeping with the day. 

The Nurses. 
To show that the ladies of Massachusetts were not to be outdone in kindly and 
useful offices of humanity, a hearty and full response was made to the call from the 
Medical Commission from the State House for nurses. This Commission communi- 
cated to the public a document from Secretary Cameron, accepting the services of Miss 
D. T. Dix, and authorizing her to act in the military hospitals. Miss Dix requested 
that persons who intended to give their services free, should not proceed to headquar- 
ters, but send in their names, age and residence, and take practical instruction in 
nursing, if not already qualified, and hold themselves in readiness to attend upon an 
hour's call. The daughters of Massachusetts nobly responded to this call, and a 
sufficient number were soon entered on the list to answer the ends proposed. 

The Dead of LowelL 

May 6, 1861, the City of Lowell also paid due honors to the dead, — the first Massa- 
chusetts dead of the war. The obsequies were conducted under the direction of the 
city authorities. The city was appropriately dressed in mourning, — business was 
suspended, mills stopped, flags at half-mast, and a general gloom, deepened by a 
lowering sky, gave impressiveness to the occasion. The clergyman officiating, in a few 
neatly chosen words, paid a fitting tribute to the virtues and memories of the dead. 
All those present felt that war was upon them, and that to die in defence of their 
country was honorable indeed. 

May 7, — Individual, Town, and City Action. 

May 7, it was reported in the papers that the citizens of Fairhaven voted to authorize 
the selectmen to effect a loan of $-5,000, for the defence of the town and harbor from 
invasion, whenever in their discretion it became necessary, and also voted to pay each 
volunteer in active service a sum so that he should have the amount of $2.5 a month. 

The citizens of Leicester appropriated the sura of $5,500 " to maintain the honor of 
the flag ; " and also ten dollars a month in advance to every citizen actually serving in 
the war. Scituate voted to pay single men ten dollars, and married fifteen per month, 
as long as the government required their services. They were to be provided with 
uniforms, and paid one dollar per day while drilling; also a contingent fund was voted 
to pay their contingent expenses. 

Among the donations from citizens of Boston, some are more worthy of commenda- 
tion. The occupants of the market gave large donations of food to the soldiers. May 


6, they increased their previous donations by the donation of 3,000 pounds of beef, and 
over 200 splendid harns ; 1,200 pounds butter, and 1,600 pounds of cheese, were among 
the first liberal donations. 

May 8th it was reported that Dorchester voted $20,000 for the war ; fifteen for 
single, and twenty for married men enlisting during the war. Middleton voted $7,000 ; 
Mansfield, #5,000 ; Woburn paid liberally ; Dedham voted $10,000 ; Melrose, $3,000. 
All these were voted, besides other liberal provisions. 

The citizens of Roxbury, on the evening of May 8th, held an enthusiastic meeting in 
Institute Hall, to enjoy an entertainment prepared for the families of the volunteers. 
Children gave the music ; also Gilmore's Band added to the pleasure of the occasion. 
The Hon. Alexander H. Rice made a few elegant remarks, and then the Hon. Edward 
Everett gave one of his characteristically polished and eloquent addresses, saying that 
" Wide as the summons has gone forth, it has been obeyed, with an alacrity and una- 
nimity that knew no parallel in our history ; and the volunteers of Massachusetts have 
been the first in the field." 

The Donation Committee. 

This is one of the institutions of the city, — benevolent, useful, energetic, and skil- 
ful ; it has work to do, and does it. The soul of this committee is its originator and 
agent, the indefatigable Mrs. Harrison Gray Otis. Immediately after the breaking out 
of the war, she set about to see what her hands could find to do ; and it occurred to 
her that she could best assist the Old Bay State in the cause in which it had enlisted, 
by throwing open her own house, and making it a general depot for receiving and 
distributing conveniences and necessaries to the soldiers of Massachusetts. This fact 
became known to the city government, and Mr. Evans, the proprietor of the Evans 
House on Tremont Street, opened his house gratuitously for this purpose. As soon as 
Mr. Evans signified his intention to give Mrs. Otis his house for this purpose, she 
entered it, about the last of April, and has been there every day since -j-not had one 
holiday, or day of rest, save the Sabbath. She receives anything and everything for 
the soldiers, — shirts, drawers, socks, sleeping-caps, blankets, pin-cushions, towels, 

froceries, teas, coffee, sugar, wines, &c. Articles are sent to her from all parts of the 
tate, made and unmade, and by her distributed, to her order only, to all the soldiers 
who apply. They come in from the camps and get complete outfits. On their return 
from the seat of war, on furlough, they call, and give most hearty thanks for the 
things they have had to supply their necessities, and receive such things more as they 
may require. Every article is marked, no matter what, with the mark of the com- 
mittee, as follows : — " Donation Committee, Mrs. Harrison Gray Otis, Agent, City of 
Boston; " so that any soldier can tell whence comes his donation. It is impossible to 
give an estimate of all that has been distributed in ten months of the operations of 
the committee. Among others may be stated, 20,000 pin-cushions, 30,000 rolled 
bandages, 30,000 books, tracts and Testaments ; and, perhaps, 100,000 articles have 
been sent out; and all articles are of the best kind and pattern. Several thousand 
dollars have been donated in money ; and the fame of the committee has extended so 
far that remittances have been received from London, Paris, China, Siam, Norway, 
Sweden and St. Petersburg. Mr. Ashton, of London, a native and property-holder 
of Boston, among liberal donations from other parties, gave $500. Many of the 
merchants of whom flannel and material for under-clothing are bought make a liberal 
discount upon their prices. All who send in, leave it entirely to the judgment of Mrs. 
Otis as to the distribution, as nothing is sent without her order. The committee is 
entirely self-sustaining, — neither State or City have given it a copper. Mrs. Otis is 
not alone in her devotion to its purposes, — four young ladies of position have devoted 
their whole time to the enterprise, and one has cut all the shirts that have been made. 
Other wealthy ladies are constantly in attendance, and giving money, and purchasing 
material to supply special wants as they occur, and which cannot readily be otherwise 
supplied. Each person who makes a donation receives a printed certificate, with the 
signature of the agent, and an acknowledsjment through the newspapers. _ In this 
way these ladies have given up dress, parties, social entertainments, where time and 
expense are necessary, and devoted themselves to this work of humanity and of defence 
of the good old Union of the fathers. Long live the ladies of the Old Bay State ! 

Massachusetts Soldiers' Fund Society. 

April 23, a great movement was commenced by the leading merchants of Boston, — 
great, because it comprehended a wider field of action than had been hitherto attempted. 
They held a meeting at the rooms of the Board of Trade, and appointed a committee 
to eftect an organization ; and, on the 24th, that committee reported that, in view of 
the liberal contributions by towns, cities and individuals, in aid of soldiers called into 
active service, it was proper to leave the present wants of the soldiers to still continue 
to be supplied in this way. But, in view of the fact that the contest might be pro- 
longed, and that their generosity might find itself incapable of giving further aid, they 
deemed it advisable to establish a more permanent fund. Hence, they recommended a 
committee of, one hundred to raise and keep a fund, and to apply it for the soldiers and 
their families, at their discretion. They also reported a list of officers, commencing 
■with the governor, the chief justice, and all the living ex-governors of the State, and 
continuing with the most prominent names of the citizens of the State. 

■ On the 27th this Committee of One Hundred met, and adopted the following rules: — 
The Committee of One Hundred who met on the 27th, to correct any public misap- 
prehension as to the objects of this fund, published the following in the Boston 



pipprs: — " Our object is, 'to receive contributions for the benefit of soldiers, and the 
famihfs of soldiers, who have been or may be called into active service, to be held in 
tntst as a fund in reserve, to be applied at fh: discretion' of the Executive Committee of 

" No part of the fund can be used, just at this juncture, without departing from the 
original design, and, as it would seem, without a violation of faith to the contributors. 
The endeavor to provide means for the future, cannot, we think, but be approved by 
every thoughtful person. The exigencies of war are almost innumerable; and, while 
towns, cities, and neighborhoods meet the immediate necessities of those, and the 
families of those, who are called to the field in this hour of our country's awful 
emergency, we feel disposed to commend the wisdom of the gentlemen who look 
beyond present needs, and who, by the creation and care of this fund, hold out to the 
war-worn and the afflicted the promise of such pecuniary remembrance hereafter as 
the extent of the contributions will allow. That the ' Massachusetts Soldiers' Fund ' 
is in the hands of citizens who are known for their integrity, financial skill, and deeds 
of benevolence, our readers need no assurance of ours. We may add, that, while the 
Executive Committee, as we are advised, decline to commit themselves to any course 
of action, as relates to the time of beginning to disburse the money placed at their 
disposal, as well as decline to define — what indeed is not possible now to do — the 
rules which may be adopted in appropriating the funds, yet they do intend to be alive 
to every passing event, and to take cognizance of such calls as shall be made from 
time to time, keeping steadily in view, however, the final amount of the fund, and the 
principles of organization of the Committee of One Hundred. 

"It is also of moment to observe, that, since contributions have been solicited in all 
parts of our glorious old Commonwealth, so will distributions of the funds be made as 
iiniversally by the Executive Committee ; for, it is to be remembered that, in consti- 
tuting this body, Boston has but six members, while other and different parts of the 
State have nine. Upon this point, we would speak with distinct emphasis ; — for 
example, Boston — as bound to do — will doubtless contribute more than any other 
single place, but will still share in exact proportion only to the cases presented and 
disposed of under the rules recognized everywhere else, however near to or distant 
from that city. The towns and cities, then, not now doing to the extent of their ability 
in fitting off soldiers and earing for the wives and children of soldiers, may rest 
entirely content, that, if they do but transmit money to Robert M. Mason, the 
Treasurer, at Boston (No, 17 Milk Street, or 10 Pemberton Square), they toill provide 
for the future xoants of the present objects of their duty and sympathy, in the precise 
sense of contributors hi the metropolis itself. We have purposely made no appeal to our 
citizens to aid this fund, because we dieemed a single word on that subject quite 
unnecessary. So, too, we have refrained from dwelling upon the startling movements 
of the hour, for the reason, that, as remarked at the outset, we designed merely to 
correct existing, and, as circumstances induce us to believe, somewhat extensive 
misapprehensions as to the objects of the fund." 

December 9th, a circidar announced that a sub-committee had then addressed 
circulars to the various banks and savings institutions of the Commonwealth, to know 
if they would receive and disburse, without charge, such funds as might be sent to 
them by the soldiers. Most, or all, replied that they would. 

From this we see the care of the " solid men " for the interests of the soldier. With 
such assistance, there need be little suffering in the families of those who are fighting 
the battles of their country. 

M"ew England Woman's Auxiliary Association; Authorized Branch of the 
United States Sanitary Commission. 

The ladies and committee of this Commission, in Boston, issued a circular to the 
women of New England, of which the following is a production : — 

" We appeal to you in behalf of the United States Sanitauy Commission. This 
Commission has its head-quarters at Washington, and agencies in New York, Phila- 
delphia, Boston, Cincinnati, Wheeling, St. Louis, and Louisville. It originated, at the 
beginning of the war, in the desire to meet and avoid, for our army, the terrible evils 
which decimated the Crimean army. Its duties are partly preventive — such as in- 
specting and reforming camp arrangements, where bad situation, bad drainage, and 
bad cooking are worse foes to the soldier than those met in battle. It makes good, in 
a measure, the deficiency of government supplies to the hospitals — those supplies 
being limited, in many cases, to bed and pillow — so that the men lie in the clothes in 
which they were wounded. It gives its aid whenever and wherever it is most needed; 
furnishing clothes to the naked, and decent comfort to the sick ; getting pay for those 
unable to attend at official hours ; following in the steps of the government — allevi- 
ating, where it cannot prevent; working in season and out of season, for humanity's 
and mercy's sake, 

" The Commission appeals to the women of the country for its support. It is author- 
ized, but not paid by government; it has not an article or a dollar supplied to it by 
government. Let us, in our fortunate and well-ordered New England, give freely to 
this agency, which works for the whole country. We are proud of sending our troops 
well provided ; our governors and mayors go to Washington, to look after our sick and 
wounded ; let us then work for the Commission, which is the friend of the sick and 
wounded from the whole Union, and give thankfully, if not for our own sons and 
brothers, for those who are sons of our country, and brethren of all loyal women." 


The Auxiliary Association commenced work December 13, 1861. All packages 
made up in New England, and forwarded to No. 22 Summer Street, are opened by 
them, and repacked — each class of articles by itself — in boxes, marked, numbered, 
and kept in store until ordered from Washington. When ordered, they are readily 
se'iPcted and forwarded; so that no mistakes can occur. Before this association was 
formed, article.; were continually sent by the friends of the soldiers; and, when 
opened, perhaps, would not contain a single article wanted. At the hospitals this 
caused much annoyance. For seven weeks up to February 1st, 788 packages h:id been 
forwarded, all of which have been opened and re-packed, save those which have been 
marked for some particular regiment. This shows the labor and the responsibility 
which the managers have taken upon themselves. We cannot give all the articles 
which have been forwarded, but mention, among others, 20 cases hospital stores, — food, 
such as farina, &c. ; 27 cases of books, 2t cases of wine," 2,592 towels. 3,.5o3 pairs of 
mittens, 2,574 pillows, 7,049 pairs woolen socks, 2,286 cotton shirts, 2,669 pillow-cases, 
1,005 bed-sacks, 1,370 flannel shirts, 1,912 quilts, and so on, ad infinitum. The 
industrial department cuts and furnishes garments to parties that will make them, 
and also sends patterns to a distance, to those who will cut and make. The association 
is conducted exclusively by the ladies of Boston, who have associates all over New 
England. The receipts increase as its importance becomes known. Al! donations are 
thankfully received, and the donors can be assured that nothing will be wasted. All 
honor to the ladies of Boston ! 

Ladies' Industrial Aid Association. 
This association was organized early upon the breaking out of the war, by the la- 
dies of Boston. In July it was re-organized, with Mrs. C. R. Lowell for President, 
Miss Anna Lowell, Vice-President, and with a board of thirteen directors. The object 
of this association is to furnish work — the making of soldiers' shirts — to the wives 
of the soldiers in the field who need assistance. They stand between the contractors 
and the women ; take the garments from the contractors to cut and make, receiving 
a certain sum for making, and paying a certain sum to the needlewomen for the sew- 
ing. The association has succeeded beyond expectation. 

To obtain an idea of what they have accomplished, we gave the figures : From July 
6th, 1861, to January 1st, 1862, they received, in donations, in sums varying from five 
cents to five hundred dollars, $3,229.28 ; for shirts gratuitously made, $300 ; and for 
work done by the needlewomen (paid for), $3,044 — making a total of $6,573.28. 
They had disbursed to the workwomen, for sewing, $5,705.94, and had on hand, Jan. 
1st, $767.89. The number of articles made are as follows : — 

The whole number made, 40,542 

Made gratuitously, or by workwomen sent, 4,283 

Made by the volunteers' families, 36,259 

Of the 40,542 made, shirts for the United States' Army, . . . 32,817 
Flannel shirts and drawers, cotton drawers, blouses, and jackets, . 7,323 

Shirts and drawers for private persons, 383 

Sheets and pillow-cases " " 419 

W'hen they first commenced, they received eight cents for making shirts, and paid 
sixteen ; after that they received ten cents from the contractors, and paid twenty to the 
needlewomen. The number of women employed is about 700 — about one-third of 
whom are Americans. They accomplish another end than simply furnishing work to 
the women— they teach them to sew, and to do it well. If a garment is returned 
poorly made, a less number is given out next time ; so that they must work well if they 
would obtain the employment. 

We cannot give too much praise to the ladies who have carried forward this truly 
useful enterprise. It has received their constant attention, and that with an immense 
amount of vexatious and fatiguing labor. The object is good; it is to furnish labor to 
the unemployed wives and families of the volunteers, and to teach them how to labor. 
The ladies hope to make it a self-sustaining institution ; and, if they succeed, they 
will have accomplished a noble work. 

State Aid to Families of Volunteers. 

In March, 1862, the Legislature perfected the law aiding the families of volunteers. 

As it is of general interest, we give it entire : — 


In addition to an Act in Aid of the Families of Volunteers, and for other purposes. 

Be it enacted bij the Senate and House of Representatives, in General Court assembled, 

aiul by the authority of the same, as follows : — 

Sect. 1. Any town or city may raise money by taxation, or otherwise, and (if nec- 
essary) apply the same, under the direction of its Selectmen, or Mayor and Aldermen, 
or City Council, for the aid of the wife, each child, parent, brother, and sister of, and 
dependent upon, any one of the inhabitants of said town or city, who, as a part of the 
quota of this Commonwealth, has been, or hereafter shall be, duly enlisted and mus- 
tered into the volunteer service of the United States. 

Sect. 2. Any town or city may raise and apply money, as aforesaid, for the aid of 
such wife, child, parent, brother and sister, of any one of its inhabitants who had 
been duly enlisted and mustered into said volunteer service as a part of the quota of 
any other State, before the passage of this Act. 


Sect. 3. Money raised, as aforesaid, may be applied, as aforesaid, from and after 
the time of such enlistment, and while such inhabitant has been, or shall hereafter be, 
actually in said volunteer service ; and all appropriations and expenditures heretofore 
made, or which shall hereafter be made, by the Selectmen, or Mayor and Aldermen, or 
City Council, of ai^ town or city, for any of the purposes expressed in the foregoing 
sections, for any persons who have been, or are now, in the said service, notwithstand- 
ing any actual or supposed irregularity in their original enlistment, are hereby declared 

Sect. 4. Of the sums applied, as aforesaid, there shall be annually reimbursed from 
the State treasury, to the town or city so applying the same, a sum not exceeding one 
dollar per week for the wife, and one dollar per week for each child and parent afore- 
said : provided, that the whole sum so reimbursed shall not exceed twelve dollars per 
month for all persons named in this section, dependent upon any such inhabitant at 
the time he was, or shall be, duly enlisted and mustered into said volunteer service. 

Sect. o. On or before the fifth day of January, in each year, there shall be depos- 
ited in the office of the Auditor of the Commonwealth, by each town and city raising 
and applying money, as aforesnid, a full and particular report, setting forth the names 
of the inhabitants of such town or city, for the aid of whose families money has been 
applied, as aforesaid, the names and ages of the several persons for the aid of whom 
money has been applied, as aforesaid, the relation such persons severally bear to such 
inhabitants, the sums paid to each of such persons, and the time when the same were 
paid. And no reimbursment shall be made from the State treasury to such town or 
city, as provided in Section Four of this Act, until such report has been sworn to by 
a majority of the Selectmen of such town, or the Mayor and a majority of the Alder- 
men of such city, deposited as aforesaid, and carefully examined, scrutinized, and 
approved by said auditor. 

Sect. 6. This Act shall not authorize reimbursing money applied for the aid of 
any wife, child, or parent aforesaid, of any commissioned officer in said volunteer 
service, nor for the aid of any person dependent upon any volunteers from this State, 
enlisted into regiments of any other State, who receive aid from such other State. 

Sect. 7. All Acts, and parts of Acts, inconsistent with the provisions of this Act, 
are hereby repealed. 

Sect. 8. This Act shall take effect upon its passage. 

The Comniissary-General's Department. 

The Governor appointed a. commissary-general, according to the Act of the Legisla- 
ture in May. The Commissary-General, by consent of the Governor and Council, and 
aid of the military department of the State, commenced labor with the idea of econo- 
my, and not liberal expenditure. They organized a plan for subsisting the soldiers, in 
place of the more expensive one of commuting their rations. The contracts for stores 
were made on advantageous terms. Fifteen regiments of infantry, one regiment of 
cavalry, and three companies of artillery, together with numerous companies, have 
been subsisted by the department. The efforts of those connected with the depart- 
ment have been direct to the promotion of health, comfort, and satisfaction among the 
troops — all causes of complaint being removed as promptly as practicable. Now, the 
volunteer corps raised in this State are subsisted by the general government, through 
officers detailed for that purpose. The total expenditure of the department was $103,- 
146.25 ; liabilities, $10,000.00. In this, as in the other administrative departments of 
the State, since preparations for the war, Massachusetts has shown practical ability, 
humanity, and true loyalty to the soldiers' interest, as well as to the Union. 

Three Months' Volunteers. 
It is an interesting item to see the counties which furnished the three months' men, 
who first rallied to meet the front of rebellion. Old Middlesex bears off" the palm in 
ntimbers. She sent 939 commissioned officers and men — 882 privates, and 57 com- 
missioned officers. Essex stands along close by her side ; for she sent 71 commissioned 
officers, and 857 privates — being 928 in all. Norfolk came next, sending 21 commis- 
sioaed officers, and 391 privates — making 412 in all. Franklin County sent one pri- 
vate and no commissioned officers ; still, no one can doubt the loyalty of that county, 
and that she will respond to her utmost capacity in the war. The total number of 
commissioned officers furnished by the State was 244; privates, 3492 — making an ag- 
gregate of 3736 men. These men went to Washington, many of them, through Balti- 
more, under Butler. They subdued that city, held the State of Maryland in check, and 
showed a wealth of mechanical skill, bravery, intelligence, and heroism, that makes 
one of the brightest pages in American history. 

The Arming of the Troops. 

To carry on war, men must have arms. The science of the day makes it necessary 
that the first-class arms should be used, in order to make anything of an equality in 
fighting. By the foresight of the authorities in power, $25,000 had been expended for 
overcoats and the munitions of war. They had immediate command of 3,500 rifled 
muskets. 500,000 cartridges had just been completed at the Cambridge arsenal, and 
rifled cannon were expected soon to be ready, with plenty of amuiunition. With these 
stores in the ordnance department, the authoiities were enabled to arm and equip the 
three months' volunteers, and dispatch them immediately to the seat of war. To De- 
cember 24th, the number of the United States' rifled and smooth-bore muskets on hand 



and received was 19.636 ; and of these, 18,449 have been distributed to the troops of 
the State. In addition to these, 14,700 Enfield rifled muskets have been purchased, 
and 13,185 have been distributed to the troops. There have been 1,200,000 cartridges 
made at the State arsenal, and these, with the stock on hand, gives an aggregate of 
1,722,000 ; and from this quantity there has been distributed 1,084,000. Among_ the 
amounts paid by the State authorities, during the summer and fall, are the following: 
$223,715.56 for Enfield rifled muskets ; $23,617.83 for infantry equipments ; $30,642.- 
28 for guns and munitions ; $27,624.00 for Enfield rifled muskets, with cases, &c. ; to 
the aggregate amount of $559,876.25 ; and, in addition to this, $2,572.05 has been paid 
for office hire, clerk hire, and other necessary contingents. It appears that the State 
has 3,662 of the Springfield rifles, 7,690 of the Springfield smooth-bore, and 13,185 of 
the Enfield rifles in the field, distributed among the various regiments. 

Boston City Aid to the Families of Volunteers, 
The city of Boston is paying out from $16,000 to $18,000 per month, as aid to the 
families of volunteers. All this is in addition to the regular pay of the soldiers. The 
amount paid to each family varies from $4 to $8 and $12 per month. This money is 
again reimbursed to the city by the State, with the exception of what extra aid the city 
extends to persons more than usually needy. The number of persons assisted is about 
2,200. The applicants first go to the State House, get a certificate of the enlistment 
of the husband, father, or brother, and apply to the Relief Officer, in Court Square; 
from thence they are sent to the Ward Committee, and, if approved, their application 
is signed by the Alderman of the ward ; it is then returned to the Relief Officer, and 
the draft is received for the money. It is the opinion of the agent in charge that this 
munificent assistance has added one-third to the enhstments of the city. 

The Surgeon-General's Report. 

From the 16th day of April to the 16th of June, the medical supervision of the vol- 
unteer regiments was under the direction of an informal medical board — gentlemen 
whose loyalty and patriotism moved them to render their services to the State. Under 
their supervision, the physical fitness and medical wants of the soldiers were well sup- 
plied. The cost of medicines and hospital stores, for all the camps in the State, was 
$1,862.07 ; the cost of the same for three months' outfit, $8,719.25 ; and the outfit for 
surgical instruments, dressings, and furniture, $12,102.40 — making an aggregate of 
$22,441.60. The resident physician of the Massachusetts General Hospital, with his 
department, and the city of Boston, through the City Physician, gave great assistance 
in the sanitary and medical departments of the service. These were gratuitous and 
patriotic off"erings — a cheerful sacrifice for the interest of the soldier and the country. 
The Medical Commission, also, — appointed by the Governor on the order of the Sec- 
retary of War, for the examination of candidates for the medical staff, — gave their 
services to the State without compensation. The physicians of Massachusetts have 
done themselves honor in their free-will offerings. 
Town Action. 

At the commencement of the war, the whole State of Massachusetts was nerved to 
patriotic action. Almost all the towns raised money, men, and supplies to aid the war. 
To give an idea of that labor, without attempting any unpleasant comparisons, we give 
the work of a few towns, as an index of all. 

In April, 1861, the citizens of Acton met, and voted the sum of $5000, to aid the 
volunteers and their families. They sent out a volunteer company of fifty-six men, 
called the Davis Guards, in honor of Davis of Concord Bridge and Revolutionary 
memory. This company was attended by the care and the blessings of the citizens. 
It returned at the expiration of three and a half months. Subsequently they raised 
another company of seventy men, to serve for three years or during the war. 


This town, on May 4th, held a town meeting, and voted "that the town pay those 
persons who have enlisted, or who shall hereafter enlist (being inhabitants of this 
town) as volunteers in the military service of the United States, the sum of twenty-six 
dollars per month each, while in such service, inclusive of what the Government shall 
pay them." 


This town voted that the Selectmen borrow ;^5000 for the aid of all those who enlisted 
from the town. The Rev. Mr. Merrick gave five dollars to each man who enlisted 
from his parish. About two hundred dollars were also raised by subscription, and 
five dollars was given to each man who volunteered. A ladies' society was also formed 
to aid the families of the volunteers; and they also sent a box of clothing, valued at 
one hundred and thirty-one dollars, to the hospital at Washington. This was the 
practice of Andover theology. 

This good Old Colony town heard the guns of Sumter, and felt that her integrity 
and honor were attacked. She immediately raised and seat two companies to the seat 



of war. The second one cost her $1,045 to equip. She immediately organized two home 
guards, — one of infantry, and one of artillery, — to be ready for any emergency in 
the future. The three months' troops were the object of the utmost care and attention 
of the citizens, who supplied their wants, the wants of their families, and gave the 
volunteers a hearty God-speed as they started for the seat of war. She has raised three 
companies for the war; and a fouitli was commenced there, and completed in Braintree. 
Besides these, men have enlisted in thirteen of the different regiments of the State ; so 
that there are now 251 Plymouth men in the army. She has, also, 9 commissioned 
acting masters in the navy, 13 master's mates, and 20 sailors. The aggregate number 
now in the army and navy is 293 ; and all these in addition to the three months' men. 
A town meeting was held, and $2,000 voted to aid the volunteers ; also a bounty of $6 
to married men, and $4 to single. Up to the first of January, 1862, they have spent, 
altogether, $5,700 in aiding the war. By the promptness of Plymouth, and towns like 
her, in the language of one of her sons, ^'Massachusetts set the pitch for the whole 
music of the war." Plymouth of 1862 is worthy of Plymouth of 1620. 


Marblehead has a quick ear, and, when South Carolina sounded the guns of treason, 
was on her feet. She immediately sent Companies C, B, and H to aid in suppressing 
the rebellion. They were among the first on Boston Common after the call of the 
President, and declared themselves " All ready." They performed valuable services at 
"Washington, saved " Old Ironsides," the " Constitution," &c. 

These men received the attention of the citizens, so that they had all the conveniences 
that the tented field would warrant, and their families were not left to want. 

This Old Colonv town, where sleep the remains of the immortal Defender of the Con- 
stitution, on the 29th of April carried the following resolution: — " Whereas, the pay 
of soldiers in the service of the United States is insufficient for the support of the 
families of those who enlist, therefore, resolved, that the town of Marshfield appro- 
priate a sum not exceeding ^5,000, to pay each inhabitant of this town, who may en- 
list, or who has enlisted, when called into service, fifteen dollars, and fifteen dollars a 
month while in service, and also present outfits for the service." These provisions 
were carried out. The town sent a company of eighty men to the war. 

This town early held a town meeting, and voted to raise ^10,000 to aid the volun- 
teers and their families. ^5,000 were expended in a few months for this purpose by the 
patriotic citizens, besides ^300 more which was raised by private subscription. Al- 
though no full company went from the town, as a company, one hundred and twenty 
men from the town enlisted in other companies. 


This town also came forward handsomely, and honored western Massachusetts. The 
citizens held a town meeting, and immediately voted five dollars per month additional 
pay to the volunteers enlisting from that town. But individual action was more honor- 
able still, for private citizens raised, by subscription, the sum of ^2,250, to aid the 
volunteers and their families. 


This city, besides such individual action as was prompted everywhere throughout 
the State, came forward with a vote of ^30,000 to aid the volunteers and their families. 
According to her ability, she was not behind the modern Athens of the commonwealth 
in substantial manifestations of her patriotism. 

South Danvers. 
This town appropriated ^7000, to be disbursed in accordance with the laws of the 
State. This was voted May 22, 1861. One company was organized in time and sent 
to the seat of war. §3,500 was raised, by private subscription, for the_ equipment of 
volunteers, and aiding their families. The whole number of men belonging to Danvers 
who went to the war, was 306, including sixty three months' men. 

This town voted the sum of §5,000 for the support of volunteers and their families, 
and expended the sum of §630 for this purpose. Mr. William Pollock gave the sum 
of §1,000 to uniform the Pollock Guards, — a company named in honor of himself. 
This company was attached to the Tenth Regiment of M. V. M. In addition to this, 
the sum of §2,000 was raised by private subscription. 

This island shows itself a part of the old commonwealth. On the breaking out 
of the war, a home guard was formed, and money raised to support it. A large 
number of the citizens enlisted in the army and navy. The ladies, unwilling to be 
idle, formed a society for attending to and supplying necessaries to the citizens 
enlisting in the army and navy. When the national loan was called for, her citizens 
responded by taking §75,000 as their share. 




Massachusetts has lost many of her brave sons in this war, and we give the follow- 
ing sketches as a faint tribute to the memory of the more distinguished. 

Luther C. Ladd. 

This heroic youth, of only seventeen years, was one of the earliest who offered their 
services to the government in defence of its insulted honor. He was a native of Alex- 
andria, N. H., but had been residing in Lowell, Mass., about one year, where he was en- 
gaged in mechanical pursuits. He had won the esteem of his employer by his diligence in 
business. Prospects were opening before him which gave bright promise of success in 
his vocation, when he heard that the hand of the parricide had been raised to strike 
down the flag of his country. When, in this critical emergency, the government called 
for aid to repel the assaults upon her sacred rights, our young hero bravely responded. 
He gazed with a new pride upon the " stripes and stars," which were now beginning 
everywhere to stud the firmament, and his young heart catching the inspiration of a 
more ardent love for his country, he resolved to join issue with its foes. His friends 
sought to dissuade him from his purpose ; but the pleadings of affection could not pre- 
vail, and he resolved to leave relations and friends, to assist in upholding that flag 
which he so passionately loved. Under the influence of such a spirit of devotion to 
the welfare of his bleeding country, our young hero went forth from those who were dear- 
est to him on earth, to her defence. In one week from the day that Sumter fell, young 
Ladd, with his brave associates, stood in the streets of Baltimore, exposing himself to the 
deadly missiles of an infuriated mob. It was there, on the memorable 19lh of April, 1861, 
— the anniversary of the first battle of the first American Revolution, — that he received 
the fatal_ wound which, in a few hours, terminated his life. It was there, while bleed- 
ing to death, that he uttered those memorable words, which shall cause the hearts of 
millions to thrill with grateful emotions as they shall recur to them : — 
" All Hail to the Stars and Stripes ! " 

These were the last words he is known to have uttered. Let them be treasured in the 
hearts of his countrymen, and act as a talisman, urging them on to conquest over the 
foes which may rise up against her in the future. Let the young men of this republic 
emulate the devotion to her welfare of this heroic youth, and she shall never want for 
friends to defend her, when foes — either intestbie ox foreign — shall rise up against 

On the 7th of May, 1861, the body was brought to Boston and deposited in a tomb, 
and soon after it was removed to Lowell, — with that of Addison 0. Whitney, who fell 
with him, — where appropriate and impressive funeral services were had, in which the 
municipal authorities of that city, and thousands of the populace of that and the adja- 
cent towns, participated. The body of Ladd was subsequently removed to Alexandria, 
N. H. (his native place), where similar public demonstrations were made, the people 
turning out by thousands to evince their love for him who had so valiantly vindicated 
his country's honor in the hour of her imminent peril. His body has since been re- 
moved to Lowell, where it " sleeps its last sleep " in one of the cemeteries of that 
beautiful city, and where we hope, ere long, to see the spot marked by a suitable mon- 
ument, which shall tell the passer-by where rests all that was mortal of the noble 

Sumner Henry Needham. 

Suraner Henry Needham was born in Bethel, Me., March 2d, 1828, and resided at 
Lawrence for the last twelve years of his life. He had been a member of the Lawrence 
Light Infantry about five years, and was one of the corporals at the time of his death, 
and was held in much esteem by all who knew him. When the summons came to 
march for his country's defence, he cheerfully obeyed the call, and went forth with his 
comrades. He was one of the first martys who fell at Baltimore, mortally wounded, 
April 19th, 1861. He was then conveyed to the Infirmary in that city, where he lin- 
gered until April 27th, when death relieved him of his sufferings. He left a young 
wife at Lawrence, and other relatives in Bethel, to lament his untimely death. His 
remains, with the bodies of Ladd and Whitney, who also fell at Baltimore, were 
brought to Boston May 1, where they were publicly received by the city authorities, 
with appropriate and solemn ceremonies. 

On the 3d of May his body, in charge of a Committee of the City Government of 
Lawrence, arrived at that city, and, the next day, was placed in the City Hall, where 
thousands flocked to view it. His funeral took place from the Universalist Church, on 
the afternoon of May 4th, and was attended by a large coiicourse of friends and 
citizens. Military and civic associations united on this occasion in paying the last 
token of respect to one who so nobly gave his life to his country. His name will ever 
be cherished by the " Gallant Sixth Regiment," as well as by every true citizen of the 
Old Bay State. " God bless the heroes ! " 

The day of his funeral was an occasion of great solemnity, — one seldom witnessed 
in Lawrence. Business was generally suspended — flags at half-mast ; and emblems of 
mourning could be seen at almost every point. As the procession moved on, bearing 
the remains of this loved one, church and factory bells pealed forth the knell of death. 
Arriving at the city cemetery, the remains of one who had been so tenderly cared for 
were deposited with appropriate ceremonies. 


Mr. Needham was a member of the Universalist Church of Lawrence, and the 
pastor, Rev. Mr. Weaver, delivered a very touching and appropriate discourse in regard 
to his character and death. The society also passed resolutions, expressive of their 
heartfelt sorrow, and in testimony of his worthy life. 

Addison Otis Whitney. 

Addison Otis Whitney was born in Waldo, Me., Oct. 30, 1839. For the last two 
years of his life he had resided in Lowell, and had been employed by the Middlesex 
Corporation, and had sustained an upright and irreproachable character, greatly 
endearing himself to all who here knew him, and especially to the <^mily with whom he 
boarded, winning the espousal of one who had learned his worth, and could reciprocate 
his love. About eighteen months before his death, he enlisted with the City Guard. 
From a high sense of a soldier's duty, he promptly responded to the call of his com- 
mander-in-chief, and was cruelly cut down in Baltimore, while marching with the 
" Glorious Sixth" through that city, on the 19th of April, 1861. 

His remains were brought to Boston, and from there conveyed to Lowell, where the 
city authorities, and the citizens generally, united in appropriate funeral ceremonies. 
Henceforth his memory will be cherished by his countrymen.

Elijah B. Gill, Jr., was born in Hingham, Mass., April 24th, 1833, but had resided in 
Boston for several years. When the proclamation for troops was issued, he promptly 
came forward and enlisted in Company 1, 1st Regiment of Massachusetts Volunteers, 
and was chosen a lieutenant of the company. He entered upon his duties with a patri- 
otic pride and satisfaction — cheerfully sharing in the dangers and privations of a 
soldier's life. 

A part of the regiment to which he belonged was engaged in the battle of Bull Run, 
in July, 1861, and his company was detailed, with others, for especial duty, on the 21st 
instant ; and it was in the gallant discharge of this dangerous duty that young Gill 
heroically fell, mortally wounded by a bullet through the breast. His comrades tender- 
ly bore his body from the field, and buried it that night at Centreville, with feelings of 
keen sorrow for their loss and regret that the body could not be conveyed to his native 

Beneath a young tree, to shade the spot, and in the ground desecrated by the trai- 
torous chivalry, they deposited the remains of this loyal son of Pilgrim descent — to re- 
pose until the restoration of peace shall permit his body to be gathered to his fathers 
in the good old colony town of Hingham. 

One of the officers of the regiment writes, " My recollections of him are of a pleas- 
ant nature. He was one of my favorites. In scenes of anxiety and danger, I learned 
his fine qualities, and contracted a strong friendship for him." 

His deportment was gentlemanly, his habits good, and, as an officer and soldier, he 
was kind and efficient. His men loved him, his officers esteemed him, and his memory 
will ever be cherished by his friends. 

William H. Lawrence. 

William H. Lawrence, sergeant of Company E, a standard-bearer of the 5th Regi- 
ment, fell, with his breast pierced with two balls, while waving the nation's flag in the 
face of the enemy, at the battle before Manassas. 

His patriotic'feelings were aroused at the breaking out of the rebellion. The mus- 
tering of troops, with the stirring strains of martial music, during the memorable days 
in April, were too much for his soul. The peaceful pursuits of life were forgotten, and, 
with thoughts only of country, he offered himself for service in this " hour of peril." 
The colonel of the regiment, seeing at once his determined zeal, had him provided with 
an outfit and presented him with a revolver, to guard well the name of Lawrence. Be- 
fore leaving, he was appointed a sergeant ; and the colonel, satisfied of his soldierly 
abilities, appointed him a color-bearer. 

He reverenced his country's flag, and bore it to meet those who conspired against it. 
The outbursts of patriotism which he witnessed during the journey towards Washing- 
ton, only increased his patriotism. At Annapolis, he wrote, " We are here, anxious 
for a fight, and in the finest spirits. I have sworn to bear the standard, even to the 
cannon's mouth. If I return, I will bear it safe into Boston." 

At Washington, he says, " When the Union is in danger from traitors, I am a sol- 
dier as much as any other man; and the 5th shall say, Lawrence did his duty well." 

Marching to battle, he " was eager for the fray." At Manassas, he bore a noble part, 
and fell, a hero in a martyr's cause. Near the field of battle, he wrote, — 

" As it is possible that I may not live to write to-morrow, I will write a few lines this 
morning, to inform you how we are at the present time. During the last forty-eight 
hours we have been busy, I assure you. We have already heard the roar of cannon and 
musketry. The enemy have been in sight most of the time. I am sorry to say that 
many a brave Massachusetts man fell yesterday, and several that I knew. We are in 
expectation of having a regular engagement." 

"The engagement took place ; and, with a devotion which does honor to his Massa- 
chusetts origin,'he fought bravely, sustaining the honor of his State and country, and fell, 
holding in his devoted embrace the glorious flag, which will never be dishonored while 
his example is imitated. His memory is embalmed in the hearts of the 5th Regiment. 


Succeeding generations, reaping rich rewards, will remember with the deepest gratitude 
all who have suflered in the cause of liberty. 

Alois Baho. 

Alois Babo was born in May, 1831, at Rastadt (Grand Duchy of Baden). In his 
eighteenth year he devoted himself to the study of law, and attended the courses of 
the universities of Fribourg and Heidelberg. 

In 1853 he left for the United States, resided some months in New York, then went 
to Boston, where he was for some years Professor of Ancient Languages at Comer's 

In the spring of 1861, he was one of the first to call and organize German volunteer 
corps, to crush treason and rebellion at the South. 

He fell at the battle of Ball's Bluff, captain of Company G, 20th Regiment, Massa- 
chusetts Volunteers — a brave soldier, who did not want to surrender to the enemy. 

He was a good, noble, and faithful man. 

Reinhold Wesselhoeft. 
Reinhold Wesselhoeft, born in the city of Weimar, the capital of the duchy of that 
name, April 10, 1838, was the son of Robert Wesselhoeft, well known for his love of 
liberty, for which he suffered many years before the revolution of 1848, and who, with 
his children, of whom Reinhold was the third, emigrated to the United States in 1840. 
Young Reinhold, therefore, received his earliest education in this country, at the pub- 
lic schools of Boston and Brattleboro', Vt., where his parents resided for many years, as 
also through private German tutors. Returning to Germany in his thirteenth year, 
and completing his school education at an institute in the neighborhood of his birth- 
place, he returned to America, after an absence of about three years, and applied him- 
self to book-keeping and other mercantile branches ; although it was his intention to 
devote himself to the study of natural sciences, wherein, however, the untimely death 
of his father thwarted him. By nature free from narrow prejudices of a religious or 
political kind, open to convictions, and ever ready to take a firm ground in defence of 
unfortunate or oppressed fellow-men, of whatever country or color, young Wessel- 
hoefi's warm heart and scrupulous fidelity to the trusts committed to him won for him 
many friends. Up to the commencement of the rebellion of the Slave States against 
their government, Mr. Wesselhoeft had taken a lively interest in the political move- 
ments of the times. Though young in years, few could have evinced more distinctly 
than he the indignation of a patriot at what he recognized as the wrongs of the politi- 
cal condition of this country, the greatest of which he regarded the institution of slav- 
ery, whose decline he ardently hoped to see. When, therefore, the country's peril called 
for the volunteer soldiers of the North, Reinhold Wesselhoeft, relinquishing many a 
brightening prospect of personal success, with his friends, Alois Babo and Ferdinand 
Dreher, was among the first to enlist in a company of his German countrymen. Reg- 
iment after regiment was accepted and sent to the seat of war, while numerous com- 
plete volunteer companies, waiting in vain to be mustered into service, disbanded ; but 
the German band of which Mr. Wesselhoeft was a member held out; while the duty 
of maintaining it fell chiefly upon him, and was performed throughout a period of two 
months, by collecting contributions of clothes and food, from meal to meal and from 
day to day — thus encouraging the men by his example, and inducing them to remain, 
until, at length, rations were allowed them. Finally, in the month of July, the com- 
pany was joined to the 20th Regiment, Massachusetts Volunteers, encamped at Read- 
ville, and Mr. Wesselhoeft soon afterwards commissioned as second lieutenant of his 
company. He filled his place completely, as was proved by the degree of confidence 
bestowed upon him by the officers in command of the regiment, which, on the 21st 
of October, 1861, took so prominent a part in the battle of Ball's Bluft", on the Poto- 
mac river, where, after his gallant captain, F. Dreher, was disabled. Lieutenant Wessel- 
hoeft took command of the remaining fragment of his company, which, no longer able 
to withstand the overwhelming force of the rebels, was dispersed. Thereupon Lieu- 
tenant Wesselhoeft, after expressing his firm resolve not to surrender, entered the river 
with his friend. Captain Babo, but perished, probably, in the struggle, with his com- 
rade, who was wounded mortally while swimming, under the continued fire of the en- 
emy. The remains of Lieutenant Wesselhoeft, found several days afterwards, were 
deposited in the Oaktiill Cemetery, at Georgetown, D. C. 

John W. Grout. 
Lieutenant John W. Grout, who was killed at the battle of Ball's Bluff, Oct. 2lst, 
1861, was born in the summer of 1843, in Worcester. He early showed a little of the 
military genius of his ancestors, and especially when he entered the military depart- 
ment of Caleb B. Metcalfs Highland School, Boston. He evinced superiority, and 
was soon made captain of cadets. When the war broke out, he obtained the consent 
of his parents to join ttie army, and entered upon the labor with enthusiasm. His ser- 
vices were in great demand in drilling volunteers. In the organization of the loth 
Regiment, Company D gave him the position of second lieutenant. Until ttieir de- 
parture for the seat of war, the drilling of the company devolved mainly upon him. 
The first lieutenant was detailed for other service, which greatly increased the responsi- 
bilities of young Grout. He was distinguished for his attention to his duties, for his 
generosity, and for his fertility of resources. Ball's Bluff came with its disasters. His 
coolness and self-possession, his precision and courage, had great effect upon the 


efficiency of his m^n. He fought like a tiger. Every blow of his sword told. The 
order came for each man to take care of himself. He crossed the river with the 
wounded, mid returned. Again the boat filled, and he remained upon the shore. He 
asked the colonel, " Is there anything more that I can do ? " and the reply was, " Noth- 
ing, but take care of yourself." He waited for the first light of the rising moon, 
plunged in, when the ball of the assassin left him only strength to exclaim, "Tell 
Company D that I should have escaped, but I am shot." 

The heroism of this young man will be a perpetual inspiration to the young men of 

His body was conveyed to Worcester, where the funeral took place. The citizens 
generally united in honoring, in an appropriate manner, one who had so early in life 
fallen a martyr to his country's cause. 

William Lowell Putnam. 

William Lowell Putnam was born in Boston in 1840, and was a son of Samuel R. 
Putnam, Esq., of that city. Although receiving his education mainly in Europe, and 
residing there many years of his brief life, yet he lost not the love of his native land, 
nor the principles of liberty which his countrymen revere. 

On the breaking out of the war in 1861, between oppression and freedom, he felt 
called to take an active part in it. While his patriotism was aroused, a stronger 
motive seemed to inspire him for the contest ; in maintaining the supremacy of the 
government, he hoped to carry the glad tidings of liberty to all of his countrymen 
throughout the land. 

He enlisted in Company E, 20th Regiment, Massachusetts Volunteers ; was elected 
2d lieutenant, and was in the battle at Edward's Ferry, Oct. 21. While bravely 
engaged in that fight, he was seriously wounded, and died the next day at Poolesville, 
Md. Ilis body was brought to Boston, the funeral services took place at the West 
Church, Oct. 28, and it was buried at Mount Auburn, with military honors. 

The following extract is taken from an address, delivered at the funeral, by the Rev. 
James Freeman Clarke : — 

" The boy-soldier, whose remains are before us, came, by both parents, from the best 
New England races. His father is descended from the ancestor of old General Put- 
nan^; and his family, on this side, contains such statesmen and scholars as Timothy 
and John Pickering. On the other side, his mother's family has given to us statesmen, 
sages, patriots, poets, scholars, orators, economists, philanthropists, and now gives to 
us also a hero and martyr. His great-grandfather. Judge Lowell, inserted in the Bill 
of Rights, prefixed to the Constitution of this State, the clause declaring that ' all men 
are bom free and equal,' for the purpose, as he avowed at the time, of abolishing 
slavery in Massachusetts ; and he was appointed by President Washington Federal 
Judge of this district. His grandfather was minister of this church, honored and loved 
as few men have been, for more than half a century. Of others I need not speak — but 
to those who knew not personally our young friend, I may say that his native powers 
and scholarly habits indicated that he would fully keep the promise given in the tradi- 
tions of his family. 

<' He was educated in Europe, where he went when eleven years old, and where, in 
France, Germany and Italy, he showed that he possessed the ancestral faculty of mas- 
tering _ easily all languages, and where he faithfully studied classic and Christian 
antiquity and art. Under the best and most loving guidance, he read with joy the 
vivid descriptions of Virgil, while looking down from the hill of Posillippo on the 
headland of Misenum and the ruins of Cumae. He studied with diligence the remains 
of Etruscan art, of which, perhaps, no American scholar, though he was so young, 
knew more. And here, let me mention a distinguished French savant, Dr. Guepin, of 
Nantes, in Brittany, who took a peculiar interest in William Putnam, and devoted him- 
self to his instruction as if he had been his parent. This excellent scholar and 
generous gentleman will hear of his death with pain, scarcely less than if William 
were his own child. Thus accomplished he returned to his native land, but, modest and 
earnest, he made no display of his acquisitions, and very few knew that he had acquired 
anything. When the war broke out, his conscience and heart urged him to go to the 
service of his country. His strong sense of duty overcame the reluctance of his 
parents, and they consented. A presentiment that he should not return alive was 
very strong in his mind and theirs. But he gave himself cheerfully, and said, in. 
entire strength of purpose, that to die would be easy, in such a cause. And, in the 
full conviction of immortality, he added, ' What is death, mother ? it is nothing but a 
step in our life.' His fidelity to every duty gained him the respect of his superior 
officers ; and his generous, constant interest in his companions and soldiers brought to 
him an unexampled affection. He realized fully that this war must enlarge the area of 
freedom, if it was to attain its true end ; and in one of his last letters, he expressed 
the earnest prayer that it might not cease till it opened the way for universal liberty. 

"These earnest opinions were connected with a feeling of the wrong done to the 
African race, and an interest in its improvement. He took with him to the war, as a 
body-servant, a colored lad named George Brown, who repaid the kindness of Lieut. 
Putnam by gratitude and faithful service. George Brown followed his master across 
the Potomac into the battle, nursed him in his tent, and attended his remains back to 
Boston. Nor let the devoted courage of Lieut. Henry Sturgis be forgotten, who lifted 
his wounded friend and comrade from the ground, and carried him on his back a long 


distance to the boat, and returned again into the fight. Such actions show that Boston 
boys retain the old spirit of their fathers. 

" In the fatal battle a week ago, Lowell fell, as is reported, while endeavoring to save 
a wounded companion — fell, soiled with no ignoble dust — ' non indecoro pulvere sordi- 
dum.' Brought to the hospital-tent, he said to the surgeon, who came to dress his 
wound, ' Go to some one else, to whom you can do more good; you cannot save me; ' 
like Philip Sydney, giving the water to the soldiers who needed it more than himself. 

" Brave and beautiful child! was it for this that you had inherited the best results of 
past culture, and had been so wisely educated and carefully trained ? Was it for this ! 
to be struck down by a ruffian's bullet, in a hopeless struggle against overwhelming 
numbers ? How hard to consent to let these precious lives be thus wasted, apparently 
for nought, through the ignorance or the carelessness of those whose duty it was to 
make due preparation, before sending them to the field. How can we bear it ? 

" We could not bear it, unless we believed in God. But believing in God and 
Christ, we can bear even this. It is not any blind chance, not any human folly, which 
controls these events. All is as God wills, who knows what the world needs, and what 
we need, better than we can know it. He uses the folly and sin of man for great ends; 
and he does not allow any good and noble effort to be lost. 

"And do we not see, in these great sacrifices, that the heroism itself is already a 
great gain ? Is it not something to know that we do not belong to a degenerate race ? 
Is it not a great blessing to know that we also, and our sons, are still as capable as our 
fathers were of great and noble sacrifices, — that Massachusetts, God bless her! still 
produces heroes !* * * * * * * * * 

" Yes, we lose them, these precious children, but we gain them while welose them I 
They go from us in their strength and beauty, but they go direct to God, and come to 
us again from Him, transfigured in the light and glory of his Heaven. We take them 
with us in our hearts wherever we go. We feel the exalted life which they have 
attained. There come to me at this time some singularly applicable lines of Schiller, 
in his Wallenstein, — singularly applicable, because this German play was one which 
WiUiam Lowell was very fond of reading, and in which the character and fate of Max 
seem so parallel to his own. When Max fell in a battle like that of last Monday, when 
he was attacked by overwhelming numbers, and no retreat was possible, these are the 
words of his friend : — 

" ' He the more fortunate ! Yea, he hath finished ! 

For him there is no longer any future. 

His life is bright — bright without spot it was, 

And cannot cease to be. No ominous hour 

Knocks at his door, with tidings of mishap. 
^Far off is he, — above desire and fear; 

0, 'tis well with him.' 
" ' Well with him,' and well also with the land which bears such sons. Their spirit 
deepens ours, — deepens the soul of courage throughout the land; calls out more 
valor, more devotion. When we hear of such deaths, we feel how happy we also 
should be to die so. We feel as Pulaski felt; I quote an anecdote told me in my 
youth. Pulaski, the Polish soldier, was gently rebuked by Washington for rash 
exposure of his life. He replied, ' General, my father died, killed in battle, when he 
was 22; my grandfather died in battle, fighting for his country, when he was 23. 
General, I am 25, ajid I am ashamed to be alive.' We feel almost ashamed to he alive 
when we hear of these sacrifices. Such deaths are not in vain, for they rouse the whole 
soul of the land; and the blood of the martyrs is again the seed of the church." 

John M. Whitlemore. 

John M. Whittemore was born in September, 183o, and was a son of the Rev. Thos. 
Whittemore, D. D. 

From his boyhood, Mr. Whittemore had an ardent love for mechanics, and especially 
for that of steam-enginery; and for several years he had been employed in the engi- 
neering department of the Vermont and Massachusetts Railroad. 

In August, 1861, he entered the navy, and was ordered to join the U. S. sloop-of- 
war Mohican, at the Charlestown Navy Yard, and acted as an assistant engineer on 
board of that steamer. 

In October, he sailed for the South, and arrived at Port Royal, S. C, in November, 
and, on the 7th of that month, engaged in the bombardment of the forts at Hilton 
Head; and, while in the discbarge of his duty there, was killed by a piece of shell, 
which passed through his head. 

His remains were brought from Port Royal, and the funeral services took place at 
Cambridgeport, and were attended by naval and military officers, besides a large con- 
course of friends. 

Thus fell the first martyr upon South Carolinian soil, in maintaining the honor and 
integrity of the nation. 

George Foster Hodges. 

George Foster Hodges was born Jan. 12, 1837. in Providence, R. I., and was a son 
of Almon D. Hodges, Esq., of Roxbury, Mass. Mr. Hodges was one of the youngest 
members of the class of 18o5 at Harvard, and had taken his degree at the Law School, 


where he was distinguished for his high character, his ability, his untiring industry, and 
his acquirements. When the war broke out he was a member of the Cadets. Believing 
it to be his duty to volunteer, instead of waiting for a commission, he at once shoul- 
dered his musket, joined the Fifth Regiment, enlisted as a private in the Charlestown 
City Guards, and started on the 20th of April for Washington. He endured all the 
hardships of that memorable march from Annapolis. He was soon after made pay- 
master of the regiment. He was on the staff of Col. Lawrence in the battle of Bull 
Run, — was in the thickest of the fight, carried his colonel, when wounded, from the 
field, and stood by him in every danger. After the return of the Fifth, he was com- 
missioned as adjutant of the Eighteenth Regiment, and was stationed at Camp 
Barnes, Hall's Hill, Va. He was an able and efficient officer, and while in the 
discharge of his duties was attacked with typhoid fever, and died in camp, at Hall's 
Hill, Va., near Washington, Jan. 31, 1862. 

Few have gone to the war from purer or higher motives ; and he will long be 
remembered for his unselfish devotion to duty by the many who knew him. 

His death was noticed in an appropriate manner by the regiment to which he 
belonged, and resolutions were passed at a meeting of the officers, expressive of the 
high esteem in which he was held by them. 

The classmates of young Hodges met in Boston, upon learning of his death, and 
expressed their feelings of sorrow and respect by resolutions, which gave evidence of 
their strong attachment, and their just appreciation of his noble character. 

The funeral ceremonies took place in Roxbury, at the Rev. Dr. Putnam's Church, — 
a numerous concourse of friends. State officers, and the military, crowding the church, 
to pay their last respects to one who had so patriotically devoted himself to his country 
in the morning of life. His remains were carried to Providence, and now repose in the 
Old North Burying Ground in that city. 

Dr. Luther V. Bell. 

Dr. Luther V. Bell was born in 1806. His birthplace and early home were in hill 
towns of New Hampshire. He received a careful training in literature, morals and 
religion, and a wise preparation for the duties and honors of life. A distinguished 
parentage, a household of brothers, and a circle of relatives, filling the highest civil 
and judicial offices in State and national trusts, surrounded him in youth and fresh 
manhood with examples and influences to direct him to some prominent sphere and 
range of action. He graduated at Bowdoin College in 1823, and received a medical 
degree at Dartmouth College from the Hanover Medical School. 

After a brief and uncongenial trial of mercantile life in New York, he established 
himself as a practising physician in Londonderry, New Hampshire, and found the 
calling suited to his tastes and gifts. While filling the round of his work as a country 
practitioner, he was the successful competitor for a prize off"ered for an essay on the 
treatment of the insane. This proves how early and to what good results he had 
become interested in that department of medical science, at the head of which he won 
his eminent fame. From 1836 to 1856 he had charge of the McLean Asylum for the 
Insane; a period of years during which many hundred patients were under his care ; 
and he discharged the different duties with great success, and to the entire satisfaction 
of all. After years of valuable services to the institution, his health became seriously 
impaired, and he resigned the trust. In politics he took a strong interest, and served 
the State as a representative and an executive counsellor. Upon the breaking out of 
the rebellion, his devotion to his country was evinced by his offer of medical services to 
those whose physical ability and patriotism enabled them to grapple with the foe. 

He prepared himself for the special exigencies of that service by a brief but earnest 
period of attention given to the principles of military surgery. He was already a pro- 
ficient in hygienic and sanitary science. He was attached, as surgeon, to the 11th 
Massachusetts Regiment of Volunteers, and served in that regiment until he was ap- 
pointed a brigade-surgeon in the Army of the United States. He died at Budd's Fer- 
ry, on the 12th of Feb., 1862. 

While serving in the Uth Regiment, he wrote to a friend: — "I have seen avast 
amount of malarial disease, and the whole volume of military surgery was opened 
before me on Sunday afternoon, July 21, with illustrations horrid and sanguinary. 
' Sudley Church,' with its hundred wounded victims, will form a picture in my sick 
dreams so long as I live. I never have spent one night out of camp since I came into 
it, and a bed and myself have been practically strangers these seven months. Yet I 
never have had one beginning of a regret at my decision to devote what may be left of 
life and ability to the great cause. I have, as you know, four young, motherless chil- 
dren. Painful as it is to leave such a charge, even in the worthiest hands, I have 
forced myself into reconciliation by the reflection that the great issue under the stern 
arbitrament of arms is, whether or not our children are to have a country. My own 
health and strength have amazed me." 

Dr. Bell was amiable and courteous, and was greatly beloved by all with whom he 
came in contact, and by none more so than the officers and soldiers of the 11th Massa- 
chusetts Volunteers, who experienced the pleasures and benefits of his generous 
liberality and eminent medical skill. 

The funeral services over his remains took place at Charlestown, Mass., Feb. 17th. 
The State Legislature, then in session, adjourned to attend the funeral; and the city 
officers of Charlestown, with others, united in paying their last respects to the deceased 
patriot and philanthropist. 



' The Sword of the Lord and of Gideon," 

In ancient days, when the Ark of the Lord was threatened, the chosen people of God 
girded on the sword and in the name of the Most High smote with great slaughter the 
heathen in their borders who had arrayed themselves against their cherished institu- 
tions. They fought for an idea, a sacred faith, which to them embraced all that was 
great and good in man. 

During the Crusades, stimulated with a strong religious feeling, men rushed impetu- 
ously to the rescue of the Holy Sepulchre from the hands of the Infidel. They, too, 
were animated by aholy and undying faith. 

So fought Crom.well and his psalm-singing legions, who smote down the proud house 
of Stuart and seized the power of England. 

Impressed with a livii.g faith and high purpose, the Pilgrims, led by the intrepid 
Standish and pious Brewster, grasped reverently and with firmer hand the Sacred Writ 
while wielding the sword to repel the merciless savages, and found a new empire for 
religion and liberty. 

So fougiit the heroes of the revolutionary struggle of 1776 — men loyal to their faith 
in God and the dignity and equality of humanity. Inspired with this idea, they mar- 
shalled themselves in battle array against despotism, sacrificing ease to privation and 
suffpring, that they might through the baptism of blood establish justice and liberty 
under a republican form of government. And so in 1831, when wicked men with sacri- 
legious hands a'.tempted to destroy this government — the palladium of our liberties — 
devoted men sprang armed from the earth, and with earnest souls, pausing not to cal- 
culate the danger, and knowing the righteousness of their cause, cut their way through 
the hosts of rebellion, and saved the national capital from the tide of treason. 

First in the contest, Massachusetts rendered prompt and invaluable aid. Ever 
watchful for the cause of the Union and liberty, she instinctively " scented the battle 
from afar," and bravely prepared to meet the enemy when its uplifted hand should 
strike the blow. 

The Adjutant-General of the State, in his report to the Governor in 1860, observed 
the threatened storm, and wisely suggested proper precautionary measures ; and Ex- 
Governor Banks, during the last year of his administration, gave to the military 
department of the State his especial attention, and revived somewhat the military spirit 
of the Commonwealth. 

His Excellency, John A. Andrew, on assuming the duties of Governor of the State 
and Commander-in-Chief of the militia, at once understood the crisis and exhibited 
wisdom and sagacity to an extraordinary degree, which showed him to be the "man 
for the hour," and one fit to be trusted with the honor and patriotism of the State. 
With such a leader, and such a people and soldiery, distance was annihilated, and when 
the cry went up from Washington, Massachusetts troops rushed through seven States, 
leaving their dead and wounded on the way, and were the first to enter the capital. 

To show the military action of the State in 1861 to put down rebellion, the following 
list of the regiments, with their movements, is given, which, together with extracts 
from the able report of Adjutant-General Schouler, will furnish matter of much interest 
to the reader. That report, dated Dec. 31, 1861, says — 

" The storm of rebellion which broke upon our peaceful land in April last was fore- " 
"seen months before by your Excellency and by the Legislature of the Common-" 
" wealth, and wise and liberal provision was made to meet and if possible avert it. " 
" The worst fears of our people have been realized, and the evidence now afforded by " 
"the living and dead of our true, loyal and gallant sons of Massachusetts, at home" 
" and on the battle-field, proves that the Commonwealth has been " true to her his- " 
" tory, her tradition, and her fair fame." The report further states that the reasons 
why Massachusetts so promptly responded were — 

" 1st. The excellent system for the organization and discipline of a militia force, " 
"which has so long distmguished this Commonwealth, and has received the constant' 
"attention and approval of the Legislature. 

"2d. The promulgation of General Order No. 4, by your Excellency's direction, on " 
" the 16th of January last, so that we ascertained with accuracy the number of officers " 
"and men of the Volunteer Militia who would respond instantly to any call which" 
" might be made upon them by the President of the United States. Opposition was" 
'' made to this order at first, but events soon proved the wisdom of issuing it. Those" 
" who could not respond as required, received their discharges, and their places were " 
" immediately filled by others ready for any emergency. 



"3d. The sagacity and foresight which induced the Legislature to pass the bill ap-" 
"proved by your Excellency on the 3d of April, appropriating $25,000, and au'hor-" 
"izing the Adjutant-General to contract for overcoats, blankets, knapsacks, 200,000" 
"ball cartridges, &c., for two thousand troops. Our militia soldiers had uniforms of " 
"their own, and had in their several armories over three thousand Springfield rifled" 
"muskets of the best pattern. 

•' Thus when the attack upon the heroic band of Union patriots at Fort Sumter on " 
"the 12th of April extinguished the last hope of peace, and its fall aroused the" 
"mighty energy of our people to maintain their national existence, Massachusetts" 
"was ready to push forward her regiments, armed and equipped, to defend the flag and" 
"save Washington, in the hour of peril, from capture and spoliation. 

"For three months previous, our Volunteer Militia, in anticipation of some great " 
"traitorous movement in the South, had been drilling almost nightly in their several " 
"armories, so that when the summons came from the President on the 15th of April," 
"the ' Fiery Cross ' was sent over the Commonwealth, and in obedience to the call" 
'' the men came forth, as in the brave days of old, leaving the workshop and the plough, " 
" their nets and barges, homes and kindred, inspired by love of country and the rights " 
"of mankind." 

On the day that Fort Sumter was attacked, the Governor made application to the 
Secretary of War for permission to draw two thousand rifled muskets from the U. S. 
Arsenal at Springfield, in advance of the annual quota becoming due, also to garrison 
the forts in Boston harbor ; but the rifled muskets could not be procured, nor permission 
granted to garrison the forts. Afterwards, however, five thousand of the most im- 
proved smooth-bore muskets from Springfield, and four thousand Windsor rifles 
(without bayonets), were obtained from the U. S. Arsenal at Watertown. This state- 
ment is made, as some of the regiments have gone to the seat of war with smooth-bore 
muskets, but it was not the fault of the Executive of this State. 

To quote again from the Adjutant-General's Report — 

"The first call for troops was by a telegram from Senator Wilson, dated at Wash- " 
" ington, April 15th, requesting twenty companies to be sent immediately to Washing- " 
"ton and there mustered into service. In the course of the day were received formal" 
" requisitions by telegraph from the Secretary of War and Adjutant-General of the " 
"United States for two full regiments of the Massachusetts Militia. In compliance" 
" therewith, Special Order No. 14 was issued on the same day, directing Colonel Jones " 
"of the Sixth Regiment, Colonel Packard of the -Fourth, Colonel Wardrop of the" 
"Third, and Colonel Munroe of the Eighth, to muster their respective commands on " 
" the Boston Common forthwith ' in compliance with a requisition made by the Presi- " 
" dent of the United States.' This order was sent by mail and by special messengers " 
"to the Colonels, who severally resided at Lowell, Quincy, New Bedford, and Lynn. " 
"The companies were scattered through the cities and towns of Plymouth, Bristol," 
" Norfolk, Essex and Middlesex Counties." 

" In obedience to orders nearly every company in the above regiments arrived in " 
" Boston the next day." 

"A dispatch from Senator Wilson, April 16th, stated that Massachusetts was to" 
"furnish immediately four regiments, making one brigade, with one Brigadier-Gen-" 
"eral. Brigadier-Gen. Benj. F. Butler, Third Brigade, Second Division, M. V. M.," 
"was ordered on the 17th to take command of the troops." 

To complete the proper number of companies for the regiments, companies were 
detached from other regiments. 

By special order Gen. Butler was commanded on the 18th of April to proceed with 
the Eighth Regiment to Washington. 

On the 19th of April, Col. Samuel C. Lawrence of the Fifth Regiment was ordered to 
report for active duty, which order was obeyed with dispatch. 

On the 20th of April, Major Asa F. Cook was instructed to have his company of Light 
Artillery in readiness to proceed with Col. Lawrence's command. 

The Third Battalion of Rifles, under command of Major Charles Devens, of Wor- 
cester, was also detailed at this time for service, and Capt. Albert Dodd's company, 
recently formed in Boston, was sent by steamer. May 1, to join the battalion. 

Three Montlis' Volunteers. 

The pressing emergency of the National Government for aid was fully appreciated 
by Massachusetts on the 15th of April, and so alive was she to the impending danger, 
that the first thought was to furnish the needed assistance without " standing upon the 
order of her going." 

Companies without full ranks were speedily filled by volunteers, who crowded the 
armories anxious to go ; and incomplete regiments were strengthened by detailing from 
other regiments such companies as were prepared to leave at such short notice. An 
hour then seemed to comprise an age, and the ordinary military orders of movement 
common to inspection and review in peaceful times, could not be as strictly observed, 
and hence the most available troops were forwarded without regard to regular numbers, 
and regiments left behind were immediately prepared and anxious to follow ; but as the 
requisite number of three months' volunteers were soon furnished, the regiments next 
following were enlisted to serve for three years in the U. S. service. 

A dispatch, received from Washington April 16th, stated that Massachusetts was to 
furnish immediately four regiments, making one brigade, with one Brigadier General. 


Brig. Gen. Betij F. Butler, Third Brigade, Second Division, M. V. M., was ordered on 
Ihe 17th to take command of the troops. On the 18th he was ordered to proceed with 
the 8th Regiment to Washington ; and May 20th, 1861, he was promoted for his gallant 
conduct to be a Major Genera] in the U. S. Army. His staff, when acting as Brigadier 
General, consisted of Brigade Major, Wm. H. Clemence, of Lowell ; Aide-de-Camp, 
Capt. Samuel E. Converse, of Lowell ; Engineer, Capt. Peter Haggerty, of Lowell ; 
Brig. Quartermaster, Capt. Thos. J. Porter, of Woburn. 

On the 30th of May, Brigadier General Ebenezer W. Peirce, of Freetown, 2d Brigade, 
1st Division M. V. M., was detailed for active duty in place of Brigadier General Butler, 
who, as stated above, had been promoted, and he proceeded at once to Fortress Mon- 
roe. His staff at the time he left consisted of Briyade Mnjor and Inspector, Richard 
A. Peirce, of New Bedford; Aid de- Camp, Captain Silas P. Richmond, of Freetown ; 
Quartermaster, Capt. Wm. C. Lovering, of Taunton ; Engineer, Capt. Augustus 
Chamberlin, of Brookline. The disastrous affair at Big Bethel has brought upon this 
brave and patriotic officer much obloquy, which was, doubtless, cruelly unjust. 

Soon after this battle, Gen. Peirce returned to Massachusetts and raised two compa- 
nies for the volunteer service, and on the 16th of December, 1861, was commissioned 
Col. of the 29th Regiment Massachusetts Volunteers. 

In the Adjutant-General's report he says : 

" It would far exceed the limits of this report to recount in detail the brave acts of " 
" our three months' troops during their term of service. I have given only a bare out- " 
" line. It is sufficient, perhaps, to say that they were the first to respond to the call " 
"of the President, the first to march through Baltimore to the defence of the capital, " 
" the first to shed their blood for the maintenance of our government, the first to open " 
"the new route to Washington by way of Annapolis, the first to land on the soil of" 
"Virginia, and hold possession of the most important fortress in the Union, the first to" 
" make the voyage of the Potomac and approach the Federal city by water, as they " 
" had been the first to reach it by land. They upheld the good name of the State " 
" during their entire term of service, as well by their good conduct and gentlemanly " 
" bearing, as by their courage and devotion to duty in the hour of peril. They proved " 
"the sterling worth of our volunteer militia. Their record is one which will ever" 
" redound to the honor of Massachusetts, and will be prized among her richest historic " 
"treasures. These men have added new splendor to our Revolutionary annals, and" 
" the brave sons who were shot down in the streets of Baltimore on the 19th of April, " 
"have rendered doubly sacred the day when the greensward of Lexington Common" 
" was drenched with the blood of their fathers." 

In the following statement in regard to the troops from Massachusetts, the three 
months' Regiments are given first. 


Third Regiment. Infantry. 

Hastening to comply with orders received but a few hours before, the companies com- 
posing this regiment mustered in Boston, April 16th, 1861. The citizens welcomed 
them, and they went into quarters in the hall over the Old Colony depot. At 6, p. m., 
the 17th, they marched to the State House to receive equipments, and then to the 
steamer S. R. Spaulding. Throngs of citizens cheered them as they passed through the 
streets, and from Central Wharf salutes of cannon and small arms were fired. General 
Butler visited them, and was enthusiastically received. The hearty good-by was said at 
7, P. M., when the steamer dropped off into the stream, where she remained until 11.30, 
A. M., of the 18th, when she sailed ; bearing away a noble band, many of whom were the 
descendants of the Pilgrims who settled the Old Colony, and established the principles of 
an elevated civilization, which their sons were now going forth to maintain at the sacrifice, 
if need be, of their lives. " Nine miles at sea " the sealed orders were opened, and For- 
tress Monroe was found to be their destination. April 19th, the anniversary of the battle 
of Lexington, they were assembled on deck, the stars and stripes and regimental colors 
were saluted and thrown to the breeze, and the day duly commemorated. Arrived at 
Fortress Monroe at 11, A. M., April 20th, making the passage in 47.^ hours from 
Boston. Regiment landed, stacked arms, and slept in the sun a few hours, on the 
parade ground. Had a very slight luncheon, and were ordered on board the U. S. Gun- 
boat " Pawnee " at about 4, p. M., on the same day. " Pawnee " sailed about 5^, p. m., 
for Gosport Navy Yard, passing the obstructions in the channel, battery at Sewall's 
Point of seven guns, and Forts "Norfolk" and "Nelson," all in possession of the 
rebels, without molestation. Arrived at the Yard at 9, p. m., very narrowly escaping 
being fired upon by the entire broadside of the "Pennsylvania" and "Cumberland," 
having been mistaken for enemies. 



Found the " Merrimac," " Germantown," and " Plymouth" already scuttled, and 
sinking. Whole force ordered ashore, and endeavored to save the vessels, but found it 
impossible, they were so far sunken. Had we been five hours earlier, the Merrimac 
would now have been in our Navy. All hands engaged in burning and destroying ! 
Companies " A " and " B " held as a reserve under arms, to repel any attack. Twenty 
men detailed from Co. B to mine Dry-Dock. 

Arrived back ai the Fort at 6, a. m., Sunday, 21st, very tired and hungry, having 
been without food 18 hours. Shoit rations, hard fare, and hard work for the first three 

May 6th, a terrific tempest and gale. No shelter for the men who were on guard, 
and so dark the sentries could not walk their beat. Not a murmur from a man. 

May 9th, two companies of three years men. one under Captain J. K. Tyler, of Bos- 
ton, and the other under Captain \V. D. Chamberlain, of Lynn, left Boston for Fortress 
Monroe; also, May 18th, a three years company from Sandwich, under Capt. Charles 
Chipman, and another from Plymouth, under Captain Samuel H. Dolen, were sent for- 
ward, and all four were temporarily attached to this regiment. 

May 13th, picket at the bridge, one-fourth mile from the Fort, driven in. Bridge held 
to-day by two companies and a field piece. Secession picket guard ordered oS" from 
Hampton end of bridge, and withdrawn from our sight for the first time since occupying 
the Fort. 

May 24th, Companies " B,'.' of Plymouth, and " M," Captain Tyler, of Boston, 
sent out under command of Captain C. C. Doten, to protect General Butler in recon- 
noissance. Two rebels, in running away from us, taken by a small party on the other 

May 27th, Massachusetts 4th, Vermont 1st, and a New York (German) regiment left 
Fortress, and commenced an entrenched camp at " Newport News," (this was the fir tt 
occupation of that point). Regiment left off their ragged clothing to-day, for a light 
flannel uniform provided by the State of Massachusetts. 

June 8th, C^Uipany B, of Plymouth, and C, of Cambridge, under command of Capt. 
C. C, Doten, were detailed for guard over the New York "Naval Brigade," which was in 
a disorganized condition ; had quite a serious difficulty with " Brigade." Had to call out 
the entire guard with loaded muskets, and came very near firing upon them before the 
disturbance was quieted. 

June 17th, Companies B and C were relieved from guard over " Brigade " by Company 
" E," of Plymouth. 

July 1st, Regiment ordered to occupy Hampton village. Reached Hampton about 
12, M., some of the troops taking Dr. G. Temple's house as quarters. An alarm from 
the advance guard during the afternoon ; Company B sent out on Fox Hill road to meet 
the enemy. None to be found. Companies " A," " B," and " C " detailed for the main 
and picket guard this night ; an attack hourly expected, but all remained quiet. 

July 5th, whole gafrison at Hampton marched to Camp Hamilton for review by Sec'y 
Cameron and Gen. Butler. Companies "L," " B," and ''E," stationed at the picket, 
with Howitzer Battery, all night. Attack momentarily expected. 

July 7, Company B went out about four miles, scouting. Thermometer 115° — an 
exhausting day. 

July 8th, party at work in the trenches. Thermometer 114°. 

July 9th, Companies " L," " B," and "C," out scouting all night. 

July 14th, private Simeon Barrows, of Company E, of Plymouth, shot and beaten, 
but not killed, a few hundred yards outside No, 1 picket, while berrying. 

July 16th, marched to Fortress Monroe, and started for Boston, on board steamer 
" Cambridge." A fine, pleasant passage. 

July 19th, arrived and anchored off Long Wharf, Boston. Sent to Long Island, in 
Boston Harbor, to encamp. 

July 22d, regiment mustered out of U. S. service to-day. 

July 23d, regiment landed in the city, and, after a handsome reception by the citi- 
zens, were dismissed at noon on the Common. 

At the Big Bethel fight, the 3d regiment was sent for as a reinforcement, but as the 
Fortress would have been left with but a small garrison, it was deemed prudent not to 
let them go. 

Every soldier and officer of the three months companies of the M regiment returned — 
none having even been wounded, excepting two or three slightly by accident.

Organized 1792. One of its past commanders, Captain Asa Thompson, of Halifax (now 
living), joined tlie company wlien it was lirst formed; lie then being sixteen years of age. 
lie commanded the company in the war of 1812, and was in service in Boston at that time 
with his company, and went by the name of the " tall captain," being six feet seven inches 
in height. Their response to the call for their services in 18R1 proved that the spirit of 
1812 was not extinct. Orders were received by the captain at 2 o'clock on the morning of 
April Kith, and, though the members were scattered in eight different towns, yet, by great 
exertion, and the free use of horses, they were notified, and, in a few hours, assembled at 
the depot, where they took the cars for Boston that morning, being among the first to arrive.

Company IB (Standish Guards), Plymouth. —3d Reg. 

A company bearing this name, and commanded by Capt. Coomer Weston, was organized 
in 1818, and made its first parade December 22d of that year. In 1851 it was re-organized 
under the same name and charter. At .3, A. m., April 16, 1801, Capt. Doten received his 
orders by a special courier from New Bedford, the superintendent of Fairhaven Branch 
It. R., Horace Scott, Esq., having run a special train from New Bedford to Tremont during 
the darkness and storm, solely for the purpose of affording him speedy transportation. 
At 9^ o'clock that morning, after an address by the Hon. Robert B. Hall, the company left 
Plymouth, being escorted to the depot by throngs of citizens. They arrived in Boston 
at noon, and were quartered at the Old Colony Depot, where other members joined 
them in the afternoon. A fund of nearly S?n00 was contributed by .Judge Thos. Russell, 
Hon. Geo. A. Shaw, D. N. Spooner, and other Old Colony residents in Boston, and Hon. 
Wm. T. Davis and others of Plymouth, and appropriated for the benefit of the Company 
previous to their departure from Boston. July 23, the Company returned to Plymouth, 
and were warmly received by their fellow-citizens. August 19, they were paid off by 
Major R. G. Usher, U. S. paymaster ; and a massive gold medal, in richly chased silver 
setting, was presented to the Company by Hon. R. B. Hall, on which was inscribed, — 
" In commemoration of the patriotic services of the Standish Guards, Company B, 3d 
Regiment M. V. M." On the reverse — " Navy Yard, Gosport, Fortress Monroe, 1861."

Company O (Cambridge City Guards), Cambridge 3d Heg. 

Co. C was the first company raised for the war in Massacliusetts. It was composed 
principally of members of the Company of Wide Awakes in Cambridgeport. At a meet- 
ins: in CambridM, in November, 1860, immediately after the Presidential election, Capt. 
Richardson made a speech in which he predicted war with the South as the result of the 
election, and pledged himself to volunteer ; and called upon the Wide Awakes to back their 
ballots with their bayonets when the time came to do so. For this purpose the company 
was formed in January, 1801, and tendered to the Governor, who promised and gave them 
the earliest opportunity to go to the war. 

They received their orders at 10^ o'clock in the evening of the 16th April, and reported 
themselves at the State House early next morn, — where the officers were chosen and com- 
missioned ; they received their arms and equipments, joined the Third Regiment on the 
same day, and left for Fortress Monroe, where they arrived on the 20th April. 

Although, during the three months service there, they had no opportunity to distinguish 
themselves in battle, they received hio-h encomiums from tlie Commander of the Fortress, 
Col. Dimick, for the zeal, activity and cheerfulness with which they performed all their 
duties : duties which are particularly irksome to soldiers, such as mounting guns and put- 
ting the Fortress in a state of defence. They also, during the last month of their service, 
occupied the town of Hampton in Virginia — the outposts of our army, and the nearest to 
the enemy. Here, also, they performed their duty, not only to the satisfaction of their 
officers, but so as to secure the respect of the inhabitants. 

Returning to Cambridge, July 23, they met with a hearty welcome. Members of the 
city government, military, firemen, and citizens escorted them to the City Hall, where they 
were addressed by Mayor Green and others, and a collation furnished them. Nearly all 
of them soon after re-enlisted in different companies.

Organized in 1850. Gen. E. W. Peirce (who had previously held the commissions of 
Quartermaster, Major, and Lieut. Col. of 4th Regiment of Artillery) was elected Captain ; 
A. C. Barrows, Giles L. Leach, J. W. Marble, and D. H. Cudworth, Lieutenants. Less 
than three months from their organization, they received the honors in the prize drill at a 
brigade muster in East Bridgewater. The company promptly responded to the call in 
April, and served three months with the 3d Regiment, in Fortress Monroe and at the Rip 
Raps. Upon their return to Freetown, a public reception and ball were given them at their

Company H (Samoset Guards), Pl-ympton.— 3d Reg. 

Organized 1S35. The company was first organized as a rifle company, under the name of 
" Pilgrim Kifle Rangers." Subsequently, the charter was changed, making it an infantry 
company. Besides this change in arras, the name of the company was changed to that 
which it now bears. Like the other companies of the regiment, they had but a short 
notice ; but were ready to start with the otliers, on the 17th of April, for Fortress Monroe.

Organized 1852. Its first commander was the Hon. Matthias Ellis, throuo-h whose 
energy and influence, mainly, it was formed. At the time of its organization, this corps 
numbered seventy-five men, rank and file ; was the largest volunteer militia company in 
the State, and was very proficient in the " manual exercise." Capt. Ellis resigned, upon 
receivins an appointment upon the Governor's staff, and S. R. Thomas was elected to fill 
the vacancy. Lieut. Wm. S. McFarlin was chosen captain, and was acting in that capacity 
at the time the regiment was ordered into active service in April, 1861. A part of the 
company were unable to leave at this time, but soon after joined their comrades at Fortress

This company received orders to muster late on the evening of April 15, 1861, and were 
on the way to Boston early the next morning. Prior to their departure, thousands assem- 
bled to greet them, and Ex-Gov. Cliff'ord, the mayor of the city, and others, addressed 
them. They arrived in Boston about noon, and, at the invitation of citizens of New Bed-

in Jul5^ a salvo of artillery was flrert vipon the common, and tliey were escorted to the 
City Hall by several military companies, and a^ain addressed by the mayor and Hon. 
John H. Clifford. Upon the conclusion of Gov. Clifford's remarks, the band played 
" Sweet Home," many of the ladies accompanying it with their voices. The reception was 
one which must have afforded peculiar gratification to the gallant men, in whose honor 
almost the entire population turned out.

Fourth Regiment. Infantry. 

(Three Months' Volunteers.) 
The sketch prepared by the Adjutant of the regiment, Henry Walker, Esq., of Quincy. ^ 
Hardly had the eclioes of the guns of Sumter died awa\, when the proclunation of 
the President, calling for volunteers, sounded through the North, and met a cordial, 
earnest response from the governments of the loyal States. Among the first regimentft 
called into the field was the Fourth Massachusetts, composed of companies helonging 
to various towns along the Old Colony shore. The order for its appearance on Boston 
Common, at noon of Tuesday, April 16th, reached the hands of Col. Abner B. Packard 
late on the afternoon of the 15th. He immediately issued his orders, and dispatched 
them by a special messenger to the several companies under his command. The fwr- 
thest point to be reached by the messenger was Taunton, where he arrived at two o'clock, 
Tuesday morning, amid a driving stcim of rain. Within twelve hours every company 
had reported itself at Faneuil Hall, which had been made the place of r<n tzvous 
instead of the Common, on account of the storm. Later in the afternoon, in accord- 
ance with a telegram from Washington, the Sixth Regiment was ordered to proceed 
forthwith to Fortress Monroe, while it wds understood that the remaining regiments — 
the Third, Fourth, and Eighth — would remain a day or two longer. On Wednesday, 
the 17th, however, the order of the preceding day was changed, and the Fourth Regimeul

was notified to be in readiness, at three o'clock the same afternoon, to march. "With the 
exception of muskets and cartridge-boxes, and the old State uniform, the men were 
almost wholly luiprovided with arms and equipments. Most of them had expected to 
be able to send or go to their homes again before leaving. They were, however, soon 
fitted out with overcoats and blankets, which the provident foresight of Governor An- 
drew had provided, — knapsacks and haversacks, the latter of which were stored wiih 
rations for three days ; the old guns were exchanged for new Springfield rifled rnuskets ; 
and at three p. M. the regiment stood in Merchants' Row, four hundred and sixty-two 
men ?.ll told. It proceeded, amid the most intense enthusiasm of the crowds which 
thronged the streets, to the State House, where, after the companies had received 
further supplies of clothing and equipments of various kinds, they were addressed by 
Governor Andrew, who said: "It gives me unspeakable pleasure to witness this array 
from the good Old Colony. You have come from the shores of the sounding sea, where 
lie the ashes of Pilgrims, and you are bound on a high and noble pilgrimage for liberty, 
for the Union and Constitution of your country. Soldiers of the Old Bay State, sons 
of sires who never disgraced their flag in civil life or on the tented field, I thank you 
from the bottom of my heart for this noble response to the call of your State and your 
country. You cannot wait for words. I bid you God-speed and an aiTectionate fare- 
well." Colonel Packard replied in brief and fitting terms, and the regiment took up 
its line of march for the Old Colony depot. The march through the city was a perfect 
ovation. The intense, earnest excitement of the time showed itself in cheers, in many 
a hearty God-speed, and in many a moistened eye. Quickly embarking on board a train 
in readiness to receive it, the regiment, at ten P. M., marched on board the steamer 
State of Maine, at Fall River. All along the route the depots were thronged with 
anxious crowds, whose cheers and salvos of artillery testified their sympathy and good 
wishes. Owing to the boat being crowded and badly trimmed, it did not reach New 
York until five o'clock, Thursday afternoon. Stopping only to coal and have her ballast 
rearranged, she started at four o'clock, Friday morning, for Fortress Monroe. While 
at New York, the officers of the regiment, by invitation, took supper at the Astor 
House. Not knowing who were in possession of Fortress Monroe, and expecting that 
he might be attacked by rebel steamers. Colonel Packard ordered a portion of the men 
to be supplied with ball cartridges, and the six-pounder, the only piece of artillery on 
board, to be made ready for action. At daybreak, April 20th, the long, low line of the 
walls of the fort were visible in the distance. Anxiously the regiment watched, as the 
boat lay off and on, until at sunrise they saw the old flag unfolding from the flag-staff. 
The men were quickly landed, and, amid the cheers of the little garrison, marched into 
the fort. They were warmly welcomed, for those within, from keeping watch and ward 
for many a day, were well-nigh exhausted. Hardly was the regiment well in quarters 
before their labors commenced. The fort was found to be almost unarmed on the land 
side, and illy supplied with material of war. For several weeks, the men were em- 
ployed mounting heavy guns, unloading vessels, storing provisions, keeping guard, etc. 
Near the middle of May, General Butler arrived and took command of the Department 
of Virginia, and he having determined to occupy Newport News, a point of land 
commanding James River, on the 27th of May, the Fourth Regiment, in conjunction 
with a New York reyiment under Colonel Bendix, and a Vermont regiment under 
Colonel, now General Phelps, took possession of that point, and proceeded to form an 
entrenched camp. The fortifications, near a half a mile in length, were laid out by 
Captain Stewart, U. S. A,, and were formed as follows : — A palisade was made of logs 
cut and brought in from the adjacent forest, against which the earth was thrown up on 
the outside, forming a rampart twelve feet in width at the base, six feet at the summit, 
and six feet in height. In front was a ditch of similar dimensions. Along the line 
were mounted six pieces of artillery, while on the bluff was a battery of six heavy guns, 
including one rifled twenty-pounder for the Sawyer projectiles. One or more vessels- 
of-war always laid off the camp in a pobition to sweep the beach in either direction. 
Little occurred while the regiment was at Newport News to disturb the routine of 
camp life. Working at the entrenchments, doing guard duty, drill and scouting went 
on regularly and quietly. On the 9th day of June, however, five companies were 
dt tailed, with a portion of the Vermont and New York regiments, to make up a de- 
tachment, to jdin one from Hampton, to start at one o'clock the next morning, to 
attack Big Bethel, a position held by the enemy, about twelve miles from Newport 
News. With the detachment went the ever-lamented Lieutenant Greble, in charge of 
two pieces of artillery. Of the battle of Big Bethel it is needless to go into details. 
Its unfortunate result was owing to a variety of causes ; but if the other troops engaged 
had done their duty as well, and gone as far, as those from Massachusetts and Vermont, 
the name of Big Bethel would not have headed a long list of Federal repulses. The 
Fourth Regiment remained at Newport News until the third day of July, when, in 
accordance to orders from General Butler, it moved to the village of Hampton, which 
it occupied, with the Third Slassachusetts Regiment, duiing the remainder of its term 
of service. On its arrival there it found the quaint old town deserted. Hardly a score 
of its former white inhabitants remained, although many negroes, especially old and 
very young ones, were still there. The troops had quarters assigned them in the various 
houses, and there remained undisturbed until Wednesday, July 11th, when they 
marched over to Fortress Monroe, preparatory to embarking for home. There their 
Sptingfield muskets were exchanged for old altered flint-lock ones. The men were 
addressed by General Butler, and when on board the boat by Colonel Dimmick, the 
commandant of the fort. The latter said, " I never heard of complaints against Mas- 



sachusetts men : next to regulars, let me command Massachusetts volunteers." At 
three p. m. of the 15th, the regiment embarked on board the steamer S. R. Spaulding, 
and after a pleasant passage of about fifty-six hours entered Boston Harbor. Owing 
to circumstances, it was deempd expedient to keep the regiment together until it could 
be mustered out. It landed, therefore, on Long Island, where it found the Third Regi- 
ment already encamped, and there remained until Tuesday, the 22d, when the two 
regiments struck their tents, and shortly after landed at Long Wharf, from whence 
they marched to the Common. The reception, somewhat dampened by the news of the 
battle of Bull Run, was yet most enthusiastic. Arriving on the Common, an order 
from Governor Andrew was read, thanking the troops for their services, and then the 
several companies were dismissed to their respective homes, where in most cases great 
preparations had been made to receive them. They had done their duty. First to leave 
Massachusetts at their country's call, they first of all stood on Virginian soil, ready to 
battle for the old flag. They never faltered when duty called them, and they merited 
and received the thanks of a grateful people. Very many of the members of the 
Fourth Regiment are to be found in the various regiments now in the field, where, 
when the time comes, they will nobly uphold the honor that regiment justly won of 
being the first, in their country's darkest hour, to leave their homes in her defence.

families. When the company returned, in July, a public reception was given them, and 
all united to honor them for their ready devotion to the country's cause in that trial hour.

Company JD (Randolph Light Infantry), Randolph.— 4t]i Beg. 

Organized November, 1855. Its first captain was Hiram C. Alden, Esq., who held the 
office until July, 1800. April 15, at 9 o'clock, p.m., orders were sent to the clerk of this 
company to report in Boston at 9 o'clock the next morning. The company, at this time, 
not having any commissioned officers, Sergt. Hiram F. Wales labored all that night to 
notify the company, so as to have them respond promptly to their country's call. The 

feneral indifference, in regard to military organizations, which has existed througliout the 
tate for some time previous to this sudden call, was also fully shared by the inhabitants 
of this town. But when the sound went forth that our noble flag had been fired upon, 
this company, with the others, received a new impulse, and was ready the next morning 
to move onward. At | before 9 o'clock on the morning of April 16, they were escorted to 
the depot by a band of music, with a large concourse of citizens, and arrived in Boston 
at 40 minutes past 9 o'clock, when they immediately marched to Faneuil Hall. This was 
one of the first companies which arrived in Boston on the morning of April 16, and, when 
the fact that they had no officers to the company is taken into consideration, none will 
hesitate to give the privates great credit. After their arrival in Boston, an election of 
officers was held. Upon the return of the company in July, they were received at the 
depot by the Relief, Independent, and Fire King Engine Companies and others, and escorted 
through the principal street to Stetson Hall, where they partook of a dinner, provided at 
the expense of the town. During the absence of the company, the town provided for the 
families of the soldiers, and paid the unmarried six dollars a month while away.

Company E (Light Infantry), South Abington.— 4tli 

Organized in 1787. It received its charter under the name of the Abington Artillery, Co. 
A, in the 4th Reg-iment of Artillery. In 1852, this regiment was disbanded, and the com- 
pany was annexed to the 2d Battalion of Infantry, and known as Company E, of the 4th 
Regiment of Infantry. It held that position on receiving orders to assist in putting dowu 
the rebellion of 1801. At 8 o'clock, on the evening of April 15, orders were received to 
report at Boston the next morning. Messengers were dispatched at once, and, during the 
uight, preparations were made for their departure. At 7 o'clock the next morning, the 
company was ready to march. The citizens turned out in great numbers to escort them to 
the depot, where they took cars for Boston, and quartered at Faneuil Hall. They left the 
next day for Fortress Monroe. Before leaving South Abington, a subscription was raised, 
and two hundred and twenty-seven dollars presented to the company. On returning to 
Abington, July 23, they were met and addressed by prominent citizens, and, the next day, 
their fellow-townsmen gave them a grand reception. Wm. L. Keed, Esq., made the wel- 
come speech, which was replied to by Capt. Allen. Addresses, suitable for the occasion, 
were then made by Rev. H. L. Edwards, Rev. Mr. Clark, and Rev. H. D. Walker, of South 
Abington; also by Hon. 3Ir. Harris, of East Bridgewater ; which were replied to by Ser- 
geant Peterson, of Co. E. At the close of which, they partook of a collation which had 
been provided by the citizens.

Company P* (Warren LigM Guards), Foxboro'.— 4tli Keg. 
Company F, 4th Regt. M. V. M., was organized under an act of the General Court, Jan. 
22, 1776, in which it was provided that " each Brigadier-General of the Colony should pro- 
vide, at the expense of the same, two good Field Pieces, and cause a company of Mattrosses 
to be enlisted for each Field Piece," &c. All the other companies organized under this 
act are disbanded, and Co. F holds the oldest charter in the State granted upon petition. 
In 1854, the designation of the company was changed from Artillery to Light Infantry, 
and in 185() its location was changed from Norton to Foxboro'. The old charter still 
remains, and it is to be hoped that, as a memento of Revolutionary history, it will be sup- 
ported by a full and prosperous company. On June 16, 1857, the company met to fill 
vacancies, and complete their organization in this town, by selecting a name for it, and

they adopted the name of " Warren Light Guards." On Monday evening, April 16, 
iSGl, the captain received orders to report himself and command at Boston forthwith, and 
the next day, at 11 o'clock, tliey left Foxboro' for Boston ; and, on leaving their armory, 
tliey were greeted with cheers from the assembled people. They were stationed at Fort 
Monroe and Newport News, and were engaged in tlie Great Betliel fight. They returned 
home in July, after Iiaving done their duty, all safe and well. Mr. E. P. Carpenter, of this 
town, who had been untiring in his efforts to have them want for notliing that would add 
to their comfort while at the seat of war, and who had been very liberal in putting his 
hands in his purse for their benefit, called a meeting of the citizens to make arrangements 
to receive them, and he was chosen to address the company on its return to this town, 
which he did with honor to himself and all concerned. The company was received at the 
depot, and escorted to the Centre by a procession, — the past members of the company, and 
an independent rifle company, under the command of Mr. E. P. Carpenter. The procession 
was headed by Carmi Richmond, Esq., as marshal of the day. On arriving at the Centre, 
the citizens had assembled on the right and left of the main street, through which the pro- 
cession passed, amidst tlie ringing of bells and the cheers of the people, to tlie spacious 
Common, where Mr. E. P. Carpenter made the welcome address, which was briefly 
responded to by Capt. Shepard. The exercises closed by all joining in singing an original 
•hymn, written for the occasion, to the tune of Auld Lang Syne.

Company I (Lincoln Light Infantry), Hingham.— 4t]l Keg. 

Named in honor of Major-General Benjamin Lincoln. To the kindness of the town 
clerk of Hingham, we are indebted for the following facts. On the 15th of April, at 8 
o'clock, p.Ji., orders were received by the captain to report his company in Bo.ston the 
next day, but, for some reason, the members were not notified until the afternoon of the 
16th, in three hours from which time, the members were assembled and ready for duty. 
There being no means of conveyance to Boston at that hour, their departure was delayed 
until the next day, when they left the town. While at their armory, and just before start- 
ing, the Rev. Calvin Lincoln offered an impressive prayer. The company, numbering forty- 
two men, under the command of Lieut. Luther Stephenson, Jr. (the captain having 
resigned), took up their line of march for the cars. The streets were lined with people, 
who cheeredthemto the noble work ; the church bells pealed forth their loud sound ; school 
children met them with a patriotic song, and presented each member with a wreath, and 
addresses were made by Col. Charles W. Seymour, Rev. E. p. Dyer, James S. Lewis, 
Esq., and a parting prayer was offered by the venerable Rev. Joseph Richardson. On the 
18th day of May, thirty-seven men were recruited in Hingham in a few hours, and sent 
to Fortress Monroe to fill up the company to the State standard. The company, with 
the regiment, arrived at Long Island, in Boston Harbor, July 19, where they remained 
till the 22d, when they were discharged with the regiment, and started for home the 
next day, accompanied by a band of music and a detachment from the Second Battalion 
of Infantry, in their unique Zouave uniform. Upon their arrival at Hingham, they were 
met by the citizens, and a hearty reception given them. A procession was formed, 
under the direction of Capt. John C. White, as chief marshal, consisting of the military, 
firemen, calvacade, and citizens generally, which marched through the streets to the 
square. They were here addressed by Henry E. Hersey, Esq., and prayer offered by 
Rev. C. Lincoln. They then proceeded to the Town Hall, where an excellent collation 
had been provided. Every member returned home safely. Many instances of true 
patriotism were displayed on the part of the people. A man living in a small house (a 
young bachelor) by himself, hearing of the attack upon Sumter, left his work, house, 
and in fact all he possessed in the world, and offered himself as a volunteer. Another, a 
married man, a box-maker, standing at his work, hearing the drums beating, said, — "I 
can't stand this any longer, wife ; I'm oflF for the war; no more boxes to be made by me 
until this matter is settled ; " threw down his apron, bade his family adieu, and started ; he 
was a volunteer. Another, a member of the company, calling to see his friends, and 
bid them adieu, was offered, by an aunt, $150 would he but stay at home, but money was 
no temptation, although he needed it as much as any man who left this town. His answer 
was, — " No, aunt, I'm a member of the Lincoln Li^ht Infantry; they have been called by 
the Governor to aid in defending our country ; where they go, I go."

The early pages in the history of the rebellion of 1860 will show, amidst the darkest 
and most revolting instances of treason and national corruption, the most glowing 
examples of patriotism, and the sublim^st heroism. For when the call of the govern- 
ment for 75,000 men was sounded over the land, the uprising of the people in response 
was so general and so sudden, that it stands as the most signal instance of the kind in 
all history. Among the few Massachusetts regiments who had the honor to be first in 
this movement, the Fifth is conspicuous. From the very soil whereon the Eevolution 
saw its first and most glorious battles, and educated in and inspired with that love of 
freedom which was then so dearly bought, its members, of every vocation, cultivated 
and intelligent, and bred in the peaceful arts which have prospered New England un- 
interruptedly for upwards of half a century, rushed to arms in the support of their 
country's honor, and in the suppression of a wicked rebellion. The national call was 
for three months; but, as the record shows, when the three months expired (July 19), 
the regiment found itself on the soil of Virginia, before the enemy, and at a time when 
its services, enhanced tenfold by its discipline and acquaintance with the " situation," 
were invaluable to the country. In this critical hour there was no voice for returning 
home. Steadily they looked the enemy in the face, and it is to their honor that their 
most trying ordeal, their hard-fought battle, was a free offering upon the altar of their 
country. The men of Concord and Bunker Hill had struck a new blow to preserve 
the Union of their fathers, and it remains to place their deeds side by side with those 
which have come down from the days of the Revolution. 

At a meeting held on the 15th of April, it was voted to tender the services of the reg- 
iment to the Commander-in-chief, and on the 17th the regiment was ordered to hold 
itself in readiness for duty. On the 19th orders were issued to report for duty, and the 
following companies were attached to the Fifth Regiment : — Company H. of the First 
Regitiient, and Companies B, E, G, and H, of the Seventh Regiment. The order to 
meet in Boston was promptly responded to, and the troops began to arrive at Faneuil 
Hall as early as half past two o'clock in the afternoon of the same day (19th), The 
enthusiasm on the arrival of each company, attended by citizens from their native 
towns, was intense, and during the entire day and night of Saturday, the 20th, hun- 
dreds of persons were collected about the headquarters at Faneuil Hall. The prepara- 
tions incident to equipping a regiment, called together in a few hours, were very 
great, yet they were completed with the utmost order, and, at four o'clock on the morn- 

* Re-enlisted. t Joined at Fortress Monroe. 



ing of Sunday, the 21st, breakfast was served, and preparation made for immediate de- 
parture. Daylight was streaming through the windows of the hall as the troops took 
U[) the line of march. After regimental line had been formed on South Market Street, 
at five o'clock, the troops marched to the Worcester Railway Station. The early hour 
of this quiet Sabbath morning did not restrain the enthusiasm of the citizens along the 
route, who, from their windows and from the street, gave many hearty cheers and many 
God-speeds as the regiment passed by. At a point where the troops crossed Washington 
Street, a detachment from the Boston Cadets was drawn up at present-arms. A large 
crowd was in waiting at the railway station, and the last interchanges of aiTection and 
last farewells were here given to many who had been called from their homes at an 
hour's notice. Maj. Cook's Battery of Light Artillery had been ordered to join Colonel 
Lawrence's command, and were already on the train. It was nearly seven o'clock when 
t.l^ie long train left the station. Of the material of this regiment, the Boston Daily 
Advertiser, of April 22, says : — 

"The Fifth Regiment is composed mainly of companies belonging in the vicinity of 
Boston, and are well known for their bravery and nobleness of character. Commanded 
by Colonel Lawrence, an experienced officer and noble-hearted man, this regiment will 
shed glory on the old Commonwealth, whose honor she is so ready to sustain. There is 
that peculiarly connected with this regiment which has been deeply impressed on the 
minds not only of the citizens, who have watched their movements so anxiously, but 
upon the minds of far-sighted and skilful officers. It is the fact that they are going to 
war, and are prepared accordingly. Following the example of their unassuming com- 
mander, the companies are arrayed in serviceable uniforms, fatigue caps, and freed from 
all the paraphernalia which are but the pride, pomp, and circumstance of war. In view 
of the stern reality of their mission, we can see only the brave hearts and noble souls of 
this gallant regiment." 

As the cars passed rapidly through the centre of the old Bay State on this, the Sab- 
bath day, its progress was viewed with favor by all, and no tithing-man attempted to ar- 
rest them. On the contrary, a member of the regiment writes : — 

" We arrived in Springfield at one p. m., on the 2lst, in the best of spirits. Our jour- 
ney was a complete ovation. You would not have thought it could have been the Sab- 
bath, to see the people in the different places we passed assembled at the depots, to hear 
the roaring of cannon, the ringing of bells, the bands of music, the cheering, &c. Old 
men grasped us in their arms, as we halted for a brief time at the railroad stations, while 
their streaming eyes and fervent ' God bless you,' told of the intensity of their feelings. 
At Springfield, the people completely overwhelmed the regiment with acts of kind- 
ness. They spread for them a substantial and bountiful repast ; and when the troops 
left for Hartford, scenes occurred which will never be erased from the memory of those 
witnessing them. One little personal incident I cannot help mentioning: A charming 
young lady asked for my address, tied the tri-color in my button, and told me to wear 
it even unto death, if need be, which you know I will do." 

At Worcester, as well as at Springfield, the people welcomed the troops with unbounded 
enthusiasm. At Meriden, Connecticut, where they arrived at tliree o'clock, the people had 
dispensed with the church services for the afternoon, and had busied themselves in pre- 
paring food for the troops — a marked evidence of their interest in, and their appreciation 
iif, the prompt response of the regiment to the country's call. At New Haven, Bridge- 
port, and other plates along the route, the ovations were of the most enthusiastic kind. 
The regiment arrived in New York at eight o'clock that evening, and was well entertained 
at the diff'erenl hotds. Here Adjutant Thomas 0. Barri, then a resident of New York, 
but formeilyof Cambridge, assumed his duties Late in the evening the troops em- 
barked: lour companies under Major Keyes, and Maj r Uevens' Battalion of Rifles, on the 
steamer Ariel, and six companies under Col. Lawrence, with Major Cook's Battery, on the 
De Soto, and at 3 o'clock on the morning of the 22d started for Fortress Monroe, where they 
arrived at noon on the 23d, ai.d thi-nce proceeded thut nigiit to Annapolis. On the pas- 
sage up the Chesapeake, the men slept on their arms, an attack from the shnre being ap- 
prehended. Ariived at Annapolis early on the following morning, and disembarked late in 
the afternoon of the 24th, amidst a severe rain-storm. There were in pnrt on their arri- 
val severed large steamers filled with troops, and a number of United States vessel-, 
making a truly warlike appearance. 

On the next day, the 2oth, orders having been received to proceed to Washington, the 
regiment marched to the Annapolis Railway Station to take cars for Washington. The 
ti ain could only accommodate four companies, and the remaining six companies, under 
command of Lieutenant Colonel Greme, followed on foot. From a letter written at this 
lime we make the following extract: — 

" We expected every moment to be pitched down some embankment; but we ran very 
slowly, and, it being moonlight, could see the road very well. We had to stop and repair 
the track several times; but finally arrived at'the junction in safety. We got out, be- 
ing then twenty-two miles from Washington, and started on the maich over the Wash- 
ington Branch of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. We marched from ten to twelve 
miles, and sat down to take breakfast. While eating breakfast, a messenger came to our 
colonel, and told him that about one hundred mounted riflemen were goii/g to attack us 
about five miles from where we were. We could see men on horseback in the woods 
reconnoitering, but should not have thought anything about it if we had not got this 
information. We marched six miles, and halted to rest. The sun was very hot, and 
our burdens heavy. The men threw thems; Ives down, and no sooner were on their 
backs than they were asleep. Some would actually go to sleep while eating their lunch." 


During the entire march it was evident that the inhabitants regarded the troops with 
disfavor. Mounted horsemen were often seen ; at one time, about fifty together ; but, 
being deceived as to the number of troops on the way, they deemed it best to offer no 
violence. By the arrival of the train, \vhich had made but slow progress in consequence 
of damage to the ro:id, the troops were conveyed to Washington, which was but a short 
distance, where they arrived about noon on the 26th of April. The remaining six com- 
panies arrived the next morning at eight o'clock, and joined the regiment, having had 
to> march from Annapolis, about twenty miles, to the junction, and then proceed by 
cars to Washington. This march was necei^sitated by the destruction of a portion of the 
railroad track by the rebels, immediately after the first part of the regiment had passed 
over it, and upon the return of the locomotive for the remainder of the troops, it was 
thrown from the track and rendered unserviceable. 

On their arrival in Washington, the regiment was immediately quartered in the 
Treasury Building. The following is a diary of events, connected with this regiment, 
from that period : — 

April 29. The baggage arrived. The President visited the regiment during the day. 

May 1st. Marched to Jackson Square and were mustered into the United States 
service, and then passed in review before the President. While in the Treasury Build- 
ing the companies were re-!ettered. • 

24th. For several weeks the mornings have been devoted to squad and company 
drills and target practice, and the afternoons to regimental drills conducted by Col. 
Lawrence and Lieut. Col. Greene, which soon brought the regiment to such a state of 
discipline as to win the highest encomiums on all sides. 

2oth. During the funeral services of Col. Ellsworth in Washington, it was rumored 
that an attack was expected in the direction of Alexandria, and at ten o'clock in the 
forenoon, the regiment was ordered by Gen. Mansfield to march at once in "fighting 
rig" across Long Bridge to repel the enemy who were reported to be approaching. 
The enthusiasm pf the men was intense; all the men, including several who were 
excused from duty for the day by the surgeon's certificate, eagerly grasped their mus- 
kets, and in less than fifteen minutes the regiment, under command of Maj, Keyes, 
(Lieut. Col. Greene being absent in Boston on leave), was on the way at double-quick 
to meet the rebels. Gen. Mansfield highly complimented the regiment for its despatch, 
declaring that he had " never witnessed a similar order more speedily and promptly ex- 
ecuted." Col. Lawrence, who, under orders, was attending the fureral ceremonies, as 
pall-bearer, joined his regiment without delay. After an hour's detention on the Vir- 
ginia side, the colonel received orders to return, with directions to pack up and march for 
Alexandria, that night. At half-past ten o'clock that evening the regiment filed out of 
the Treasury Building and proceeded toward Alexandria. While on Long Bridge, a 
most pleasing episode occurred. When it was discovered that the regiment had only a 
State color, not having yet received their national ensign, several Massachusetts gentle- 
men in Washington procured a handsome flag, and following the regiment overtook it 
midway on Long Bridge. The regiment halted, and Col. Lawrence, having advanced 
toward the carriage, was surprised by the presentation of the beautiful ensign. After a 
happy acknowledgment of the gift, the regiment again moved forward, and encamped 
that night near the city. 

26th. The regiment moved back about half a mile to grounds occupied in Revolu- 
tionary times by Gen. Washington, and wherf some of the earthworks are yet to be 
seen. A detachment from the several companies, left at Washington, to take charge of 
the remaining baggage, provisions, &c., arrived. 

28th. The camp was n^med " Camp Andrew." in honor of His Excellency the Gov- 
ernor of Massachusetts. At this time, this regiment, together with the New York Fire 
Zouaves and the Michigan First, were engaged in building Fort Ellsworth, on Shuier's 
Hill. Three hundred men were detailed each day from the Fifth, for three hours' work 
on the fort. The utmost exertions were made for the speedy completion of the fortifi- 
cations, and the share of the hard labor on the fort borne by this regiment will be a 
worthy memorial of their patriotic endeavors. The remainder of the regiment were 
employed on guard and in camp duty. 

29th. Orders were received to be ready to march at a moment's warning. 

June 3d. Camp was struck, and a new camp pitched one-quarter of a mile from Fort 
Ellsworth, named " Camp Massachusetts." Arrived there at six, p. m. 

6th. For a few days, the heavy rains caused gieat inconvrnience to the troops. 
Guards were detailed for different points in and about Alexandria, and frequent alarms 
occurred. A police force was detailed for patrol duty at Alexandria, under command 
of Lieut. Shepard, who was appointed Provost Marshal. After the removal to Camp 
Massachusetts, Col. Lawience and Lieut. Col. iireene received from Elias Howe, Jr., 
Esq., of New York, formerly of Cambridge, two stallions fully equipped, which were 
placed at their service during the campaign. This generous gift, from a citizen of 
New York to Massachusetts officers, speaks nobly for the patriotic liberality of Mr. 

14th. President Lincoln and Secretaries Chase and Cameron visited Camp Massachu- 
setts. The former expressed his surprise and admiration at the rapidity with which the 
regimental line was formed. A letter under date of June 15, says : — 

•• vVe have had two quite exciting days. Yesterday President Lincoln and Secretaries 
Cameron and Chase h mored Camp Massachusetts with their presence, and the Presi- 
dent reviewed the regiment. He expressed himself highly gratified with the splendid 
appearance and drill of the Fifth, and said Massachusetts might well be proud of it 




and its efficient commander. And, by the way, in speaking of Col. Lawrence as a drill 
officer, one of our best colonels in the Regular Army, after witnessing his drill yester- 
day, declared it the most perfect and eftective drill he had seen in the Volunteer ^iilitia, 
with particular reference to the double-quick movements and charge of column in mass. 

"To-day, the Alexandria Brigade, with the Massachusetts Fifth on the right, paraded 
through the city, greatly to the dismay of the secessionists at the grand display. 
Some of the more timid retired to their homes, and tremblingly averred that they never 
saw so many soldiers before. The Fifth was praised at every point, and even citizens, 
at heart secessionists, smile upon the Fifth; for, by their gentlemanly conduct and 
soldierly bearing, they have won respect, and are called by them the ' Steady Fifth.' 

"The Fifth are fully equipped, every man having forty rounds of cartridges, and 
daily expect orders to advance further into Virginia. The colonel and his entire com- 
mand are in fine health and excellent spirits, and the people of Massachusetts may rest 
assured that the Fifth will give a noble account of itself in the approaching conflict." 

17th. Routed at two o'clock in the morning and kept under arms several hours, 
then dismissed; the report that a large force was approaching proving false. The two 
Charlestown companies celebrated, in a grove near the camp, the anniversary of the 
Battle of Bunker Hill, by a parade and dinner, at which speeches were made; the 
fieldiistaff, and company officers of the regiment being invited guests. 

25th. Lieut. Col. Greene, Major Keycs. and Adjutant Barri having received appoint- 
ments, the former as lieut. colonel, and the last two as captains, in the Regular Army, 
deep regret was felt at the prospect of at once losing these officers, who had contributed 
their full share in promoting the credit and efficiency of the regiment, and the captains 
of the Fifth joined in the following request : — 

" Camp Massachusetts, June 25, 186L 
To Hon. Henry Wilson : — 

Dear Sir : — The undersigned, captains of this regiment, entertaining a high opinion 
of the military knowledge and efficiency of Lieut. Colonel Greene, Major Keyes, and 
Adjutant Barri, and learning that they are about to leave us to assume positions in the 
United States Army, respectfully beg leave to express to you our deep regret that we 
are to be deprived of their valuable services before our term of enlistment expires ; and 
we desire your influence to effect such arrangements that they may remain with us 
during the remainder of our term of service. There are many in this regiment, both 
officei's and men, who are desirous of re-enlisting when the opportunity occurs, and 
are anxious to do so under these officers, consequently they are anxious to retain them 
till their present term expires, that they may have the opportunity of enlisting under 
their old favorites." 

At dress parade, the retiring officers took formal leave of the regiment, expressing 
their regret at their departure", ar.d trusting that to whatever field their colonel might 
lead them, they would well sustain their honor and their credit. 

July 4th. The day was appropriately observed by the regiment. At twelve o'clock, 
M., the regiment formed under arms on the parade, v/hile the na'ional salute was firing, 
and afterward formed a hollow square. Col. Lawrence and staff in the centre. After a 
few preliminary remarks by the colonel,-. the hymn "America" was sung by the entire 
assembly. Chaplain De Costa then iead*the Declaration of Independence, and ofi'ered 
appropriate prayers for the President and Congress, and for the general welfare and 
perpetuity of the Union. Then followed the singing of the "^Star Spangled Banner," 
which led the way for a speech from Colonel Lawrence, touching on various interests 
connected with the day and the regiment. His remarks elicited hearty applause, 
and at the close, three cheers were given for the "Stars and Stripes." In the evening 
there was a display of fireworks, got up in rather an original style. 

5th. In consequeuce of an injury sustained by Lieut. Colonel Greene, before leav- 
ing Washington, the reuiment had been since that time without the services of that 
officer, and both he and Major Keyes, having some time since received appointments in 
the regular army, thereby creating vacancies, an election was held, and George H, 
Pierson, Captain of Company A, — senior captain, — was elected lieutenant colonel, and 
John T. Boyd, Captain of Company K, was elected major ; Lieut. John G. Chambers 
was appointed adjutant. Gov. Andrew visited the camp; and, after examining into 
the condidon of the troops, their quarters, the quality of their rations, &c., — with 
which he expressed himself highly pleased, — and a hasty introduction to the line 
officers, the regiment was formed in mass on the parade, where the colonel introduced 
to the regiment Governor Andrew, who entertained the men with a few encouraging 
remarks, assuring them that although far away from her maternal eye, Massachusetts 
still h:d the interest and welfare of her sons at heart, and stood with open hand, and a 
heart overflowing with gratitude, to welcome iheir return home at the close of the 
duties required of them by the present distracted state of our beloved country. During 
his remarks the Governor asserted that all the three months' regiments would be ordered 
home at the expiration of their terra of enlistment, and no more active service required 
of them, unless they saw fit to volunteer in new regiments; adding, that he regarded 
the "material of the Fifth Regiment such as would make skilful cfficers in the contem- 
plated three years' regiments. The Governor was eathusiastically cheered, and at the 
close of his remarks, immediately returned to Washington. 

During the past week. Fort Ellsworth had been finished, and the daily drills of the 
regiment were resumed in earnest. 


13th. The regiment received orders to pack personal baggage, and store it at Alex- 
andria, in anticipation of a march. * 

16th. The knapsacks were packed and left in camp. With three days' rations and 
a blanket slung in a roll across the shoulder, the regiment, in " light marching order," 
crossed Shuter's Hill, and, with the other regiments of the division, took up the line of 
march for Centreville. The Fifth, in Col. "Franklin's Brigade, having been honored 
with the right of the division, was at the head of the column, under Col. Heintzelman. 
Companies D and E were deployed as skirmishers during the day. At 7 o'clock the 
regiment halted, and prepared to bivouac during the night. At 8;^ o'clock an alarm 
was given, and soon alter three prisoners and two hurses were brought in by the guard. 

17th. The march was resumed at 7 o'clock, a.m., with Companies A and K deployed 
as skirmishers. Fifty from the Fifth Regiment, together with fifty from the First Min- 
nesota Regiment, detailed at Alexandria as pioneers, with an axe apiece, and their guns 
slung across their backs, closely followed the skirmishers. The troops proceeded cau- 
tiously, the pioneers cutting away large trees which had been felled in the road to obstruct 
the progress of the troops, and in some instances opening an entire new road through 
the woods. At noon. Company C was sent in advance as skirmishers to relieve Company 
K. The skirmishers had a severe task in finding their way through swamps and dense 
woods. The men spread out in a line each side of the road, sometimes five, sometimes 
ten paces apart. Rebels were occasionally seen in advance, but mostly out of range. 
The people had had no notice of the approach, as the troops had come by a circuitous 
route. The secession pickets now spread the alarm, and the^whole country was 
aroused. On every hand the scouts found evidence of the recent presence of the enemy, 
who, on the approach of the troops, ran like frightened sheep. The few genuine Union 
men, who had so long been oppressed by the reign of terror, found this 17th of July a 
regular 17tli of June, and were rejoiced to find themselves once more under the pro- 
tection of the glorious " stars and stripes." The roads became more obstructed by trees 
felled by them. At one point the advance guard was fired upon by the enemy, who 
immediately ran, leaving their knapsacks, blankets, &c., as mementoes for our men. 
Near by a battery of earthwork had been erected, but no movement was made in its 
defence. About two hundred rebels, encamped a short distance ahead, fled precipi- 
tately, leaving their camp equipage and a large amount of stores behind, together with 
their dinners talf eaten. At 3 o'clock, p. m., the troops reached Sangster's Station on 
the Orange and Alexandria Railroad, where the regiment hoped to intercept the flight of 
the enemy from Fairfax ; but the bird had flown about an hour before, burning two 
bridges to cover the retreat. An hour sooner and our column would have been able 
to cut them into pieces, and Mth trifling loss. Col. Lawrence rode all day at the head 
with the skirmishers and pioneers, as he did the day previous, gallantly conducting the 
advance. To-day's march was twelve miles. The regiment bivouacked in a mown 
field, on the edge of a magnificent wood, near the railroad, and enjoyed a sound sleep, 
which they much needed, for the march was quite exhausting. 

18lh. A scouting party of forty, under Capt. Messer, of Company D, left camp at 
half-past nine o'clock, a.m., and reconnoiteied by a circuitous route in a southerly 
direction, toward the Occoquan River, on the opposite side of the railroad from Centre- 
ville. They engaged the enemy's pickets, fifteen in number, whose roll they captured 
at Wolf Run Shoals, eight miles from Sangster's Station. One of the rebels was killed. 
On their return, they overtook the regiment at Centreville at half-past nine o'clock in 
the evening. The regiment itself started for Centreville at 5 o'clock, p.m., with a 
thunder shower for a companion, where at about nine o'clock they halted in a grain 
field and bivouacked for the night. The lights of the different regiments of the grand 
army of thirty thousand were tj be seen on every side. During the night a light rain fell. 

19th. Many of the officers and soldiers erected brush tents. News of the disastrous 
result of the skirmish of yesterday, in which the Massachusetts First bore a prominent 
part, was the exciting topic, together with the probabilities of the morrow. At 8 o'clock, 
P.M., divine seivice was held. 

20th. At half-past two o'clock, p.m., orders were received to prepare for an ad- 
vance, and three days' rations were distributed. The order to march at six o'clock was 
changed into an order to start soon after midnight. 

21st. At quarter-past one o'clock, a.m., the command came to " fall in lively," and 
the line was promptly formed. At half-past two the regiment, in its turn, started, but 
soon halted until half-past four o'clock, when the whole division took up its march for 
Bull Run, just three months to the day and hour since the regiment marched out of 
Faneuil Hall. The larger part of the route lay through the woods, whose shade mit- 
igated the almost intolerable heat. The scarcity of water, however, was severely felt by 
the troops. The Fifth, after marchinj about ten miles, of which the last mile or two was at 
double-quick, halted at about eleven o'clock. The general engagement had already 
begun, and in a few minutes the order was given to cross the ford, and the regiment ad- 
vanced for the scene of action on the double-quick, halting a moment on the way to deposit 
for a time their blankets, &c. Then came ttie order, " Fifth of Massachusetts, forward, 
double-quick, march ! " Away they went past the dead and wounded, both friend and 
foe, who lay where they fell, and, in the midst of shot and bursting shell, took their posi- 
tion on the brow of a hill, directly in front of the rebel batteries, and fired at their retreat- 
ing infantry. The enemy's artillery getting their range, the regiment was ordered in 
mass, and to fall flat on their faces, while a shot from the rebel batteries mostly passed 
just over their heads. "A Looker On " gives the following description of the Fifth on 
the field : — 



"Isawthe Massachusetts Fifth in their dark uniforms and their steady advance 
under the enemy's fire of shot and shell ; I noticed them some distance ofF; they came 
into the field by a flank movement, and then into column, with as much coolness as if 
they had been on an ordinary muster-field. They then had to pass over an open field, 
exposed to the full force of the rebel batteries, but they did not waver in the least. 
They were ordered by Col. Franklin to take and hold a position on the brow of a hill, in 
front of the enemy's batteries. Here I first saw their Colonel (Lawrence) &t their 
head. He is tall and slim, with dark hair. He is quite youn^, not tiiore than twenty- 
five. [The roster says twentj-eight years.] They took their places in perfect order^ 
and fought bravely." 

Another says : — 

" The boys were no way abashed by this hot reception, but took the whole thing very 
coolly, waiting patiently to 'pitch in' again. The firing was now perfectly terrific, 
and at times it seemed as if the heavens would burst asunder with the concussion. 
Colonel Lawrence, standing most of the time in the middle of the regiment, used his 
utmost efforts to keep the men calm, in their places, close to the ground out of the way 
of the shot, which went singing their peculiar death-song three or four feet above the 

Several of the men were wounded by the bursting of shell ; and private Angier was 
struck by a sis pound shot in his leg. This rest afforded great relief to the men. whose 
mouths were parched with thirst ; the scarcity of water, the rapid marching, and double- 
quick movements having well-nigh exhausted them. A field officer rode up and in- 
quired, "What regiment of regulars is this?" The men answered, ""We are not regu- 
lars; we are the Fifth of Massachusetts." He replied, ' Is it possible! I thought you 
were regulars, you are in such perfect order under fire." 

The Massachusetts Eleventh took a position on the left. Another regiment advanced 
in line on the right, but broke with the utmost disorder, the men firing recklessly 
and flying, with injury to their friends and none to the enemy. 

Col. Franklin, commanding the brigade, ordered the regiment to take a position for- 
ward to charge with the bayonet. The order was promptly obeyed, and away went the 
regiment, on the double-quick, towards the position designated. The shot and shell 
came thicker and faster, whizzing mostly just over their heads. A change of orders 
came to the Fifth ; " The Zouaves are going to charge ; support them ! " The regiment, 
splashing through a brook, hastened towards the Zouaves. On the way, a battery of 
artillery drove at full speed through the centre of the regiment, completely breaking 
up the ranks of the color company and another. " Rally, rally," shouted the officers; 
and under that fierce fire the two companies rallied, and again came the command to 
the regiment, " Forward, double-quick." A position was taken on the left of the Zou- 
aves and about one hundred feet to the rear, and the firing commenced on the right. 
A most murderous fire was here kept up by the rebels. 

The United States Artillery was doing good execution on the left and front, but were 
obliged to retreat, over half their number being killed or wounded. The horses attached 
to the gun-carriages and caissons, rendered utterly unmanageable by some of the drivers 
being killed and themselves wounded, came thundering down the line of the Fifth, 
knocking down men and scattering the ranks of the lefc wing in every direction. The 
companies rallied again, promptly forward on the colors, the colonel and officers every- 
where directing, and the men pouring a dea;;ly fire into the enemy. 

In the advance the color-bearer, Lawrence, bravely waving the national colors, was 
shot dead, by a musket ball in his breast. Sergeant Wallace, himself wounded, seized 
the national flag as it fell from Lawrence's hands, and raised it gallantly. Sergeant 
Major Quincy receiving from Sergeant Wallace the Massachusetts flag, bore it bravely.. 
Col. Lawrence, wounded, was borne to the rear as the retreat commenced. The regi- 
ment retreated from the field in some cotifusion, mostly by companies, but was soon 
ivell together again, and, under command of Maj. Boyd, (Lieut. Col. Fierson at this 
time left to render assistance to Col. Lawrence), marched to their bivouac in Centre- 
ville, where the regimental line was formed, muskets stacked, and with a guard set the 
regiment lay down for a night's rest. 

In about an hour, an order came to march to Washington. The regiment rising at 
half-past one o'clock, A. M., had marched a full day's journey before reaching the battle- 
field, had fought on the field about five hours, had retreated over the route marched in 
the morning, and were now ordered to march about twenty-five miles to Washington, — 
a truly hard day's task ! A couple of the men, accidently left behind at the bivouac in 
Centreville, slept soundly on the ground until nine o'clock the next morning, and then 
travelled leisurely to Alexandria, without seeing an enemy. 

22d. Early in the forenoon it began to rain, and by noon it pouied. About ten o'clock, 
the regiment arrived at Camp Massachusetts, and at half-past eleven o'clock, orders 
were received for the regiment to march to Washington ; and packing their knap- 
sacks, they started for the Capital, under Major Boyd, where, alter a march of about 
nine miles through the mud and rain, they arrived at abjut four o'clock, P. M., hungry, 
wet to the skin, and covered with mud. Many being wounded, they presented a truly 
pitiable appearance. They bore the fatigue manfully, and not a murmur escaped them. 
They were quartered in several different buildings, while the sick and wounded were 
generously cared for by the citizens, who took them to their own houses and provided 
them with dry clothing, food, and good beds. Hundreds of troops arrived that night, 
many of them suffering from wounds, and, for want of accommodation, were obliged to 
ie on the sidewalk. 


The Fifth remained in AVashington the next five days. 

28th. On Sunday, the 2Slh, at 9 o'clock, a.m., the regiment formed line on Pennsyl- 
vania Avenue, near Willard's Hotel, under cmnmand of Lieut. Col. Pierson, and were 
addressed by Col. Lawrence, who, ihougli still sufFerinp; from his wounds, was deter- 
mined to see his regiment saftly home. Tlie Filth left Washing'on at lOJ o'clock, 
A. M., arrived at Baltimore at 2 o'clock, v. M., and left for Philadelphia at 6| o'clock, 
P. M., where they arrived at 5^ o'clock on Monday morning, 29th. 

29th. After a substantial collation, the regiment started for New York, arriving 
there at 4(J o'clock, P. M., and meeting with a most hearty and enthusiastic reception. 
The officers were entertained at the Astor House, and the rank and file were provided 
with a bountiful supply of refrer,hments at the Park Barracks. The regiment left New 
York at 7t o'clock, p. M., arriving at Groton, Conn., at 6^ o'clock, a. m., the next 

30th. The regiment left Groton for Boston at 7^ o'clock, and arrived at the 
latter place at Ij o'clock, p. m. 

The regiment was met at the railway station by the Second Battalion of Infantry, 
which volunteered an escort. An immense coficoiirse of people thronged the railway 
buildings, and the neighboring streets. The regiment disembarked as soon as possible, 
and formed line. At half-past one o'clock the column moved into Boylston street, where 
the Second Battalion, with Gilmore's Band, were drawn up to receive them. After the 
usual formalities, the escort, with a carriage containing His Honor Mayor Wightman, 
and several members of the Governor's staff, took the lead, and the procession 
proceeded through Tremont, Court, and State streets, and returning, proceeded 
through Washington, School, and Beacon streets, to the Common. The streets through 
which the regiment passed were lined with people, and from sidewalk, from door, 
window, and house top, the plaudits of the assembled thousands welcomed back the 
gallant troops. The whole march was one continued ovation. The Boston Journal of 
that evening says of the scene on the Common : — 

" People began to flock to the Common at an early hour, and on the arrival of the 
escort, an hour previous to the arrival of the regiment, the crowd, had become very large. 
After several hours of anxious waiting, the commotion in the neighborhood of the 
Providence Railway Station plainly indicated the arrival of the train, and hundreds 
bent their steps in that direction. Most, however, remained on the Common, supposing, 
of course, that the troops, who had had nothing whatever to eat since their departure 
from New York on Monday evening, would first partake of the collation which had 
■ been spread for some liours on the Beacon Street mall. The regiment, however, pro- 
ceeded through the streets of the city before arriving on the Common. Their approach 
was the signal for a grand rush. Fathers, mother--, brothers, sisters, and friends, seized 
the hands or clung about the necks of the soldiers as they came upon the parade 
ground. The strict order 'not to meddle with the boys on the march' was only 
partially heeded, and the detour of the parade ground was accomplished by the troops 
at the sound of familiar music, with their glorious colois still flying, and with numerous 
accessions to their ranks. No sooner had the regiment been formed in line parallel 
with the Charles Street mall, than from all quarters of the parade ground rushed 
throngs of people to greet them. The orders to stack arms, &C., were obeyed under 
great disadvantages, as at this time the ranks were much broken by the influx of in- 
numerable friends. Then followed the greetings. The Colonel rode down the parade 
ground on his splendid horse, receiving the hearty congratulations of his friends on all 
sides. The civil and military authorities present, including several United States 
officers, repaired to the marquee at the north end of the ground, where a repast was laid, 
and where many friends had been gathered. In the scenes of welcome and heart-felt 
congratulation, the repast was at first well-nigh neglected. 

" Many an affecting incident occurred, and many tears of welcome were shed within 
the tent and all along the ranks. The troops were conducted to their collation, and 
were for a couple of hours allowed the full enjoyment of the meeting. One never 
failed of interest in walking among them. Here a hardy young soldier was exhibiting 
a shattered musket, or a few clean bullet-holes in his "garments; another was the 
centre of aa eager crowd, who were listening intently to the last authentic account of 
the battle of Bull Run, from an ' eye witness.' Outside the lines, little knots of 
people listened to new incidents of the fight, and none enjoyed the scene better than 
the rsturned volunteers. 

" To drink from a soldier's canteen that had been often filled from the puddles of Fair- 
fax and Centreville, was the especial delight of many, while trophies of the field were 
liberally dispersed on all hands. In scenes like these two happy hours of the afternoon 
passed away, and we heard it from the lips of many of the regiment, that it was a 
source of especial delight that their first reception at home was beneath the green trees 
of Boston Common." 

A special order was issued from head-quarters, dated July 30, substantially stating 
that after three months' service in the cause of government, the Fifth Regiment of 
Massachusetts Volunteer Militia, which Col. Lawrence had so well commanded, was 
seturned to the old Commonwealth, whose good name and unsullied honor the regiment 
had so nobly upheld. The people of Jlassachusetts welcome the regiment, and will 
< ver cherish, with gratitude, its patriotic services. The memories of the men of the 
Fifth who have fallen in the great cause, and whose bodies lie mouldering in the soil of Vir- 
ginia, Massachusetts will ever hold in grateful remembrance. At ten minutes past four 
the regimental line was formed, when Capt. Amory commenced the formal proceeding of 



mustering the troops out of the service of the United States. This ceremony occupied 
about an hour, and after the different companies were mustered out, their respective Cap- 
tains assumed the command, and marched homeward. On their dismissal until further 
orders, Col. Lawrence addressed the regiment briefly, sincerely thanking both officers 
and men for their noble efforts and hearty support, wishing them much happiness at 
their homes, and remarking that he had never issued an order which had not been 
cheerfully responded to. He then bade thrm farewell until ihey should meet again. 
_ Committees of citizens from the various towns were present, to welcome their respec- 
tive companies ; and in Charlestown, Medford, and other places, ovations, second in 
point of numbers only to that which marked the entry of the troops into Boston, wel- 
comed them home. But the honors did not end here. Numerous company receptions 
took place on succeeding days, and countless marks of approval showed in some degree 
the public appreciation of the noble labors of the soldiers of the Fifth. On the evening 
of ^Saturday, August 3Ist, Col. Lawrence received from his college classmates (Harvard, 
18'55) an elegant sword, a fitting testimonial for services such as have been recorded. 
The occasion of the presentation, in view of the arduous campaign which had just 
closed for the Fifth, was one of peculiar«nterest. 

Thus ended a campaign, begun in the hour of the nation's sorest trials, when her all 
was entrusted to brave and loyal hearts, and when she found her truest supporters in 
the ranks from Massachusetts. Among the few regiments, who, for three months, left 
their common callings, and girded on the armor for their country's defence, none can 
boast a fairer record than the Massachusetts Fifth. The varied and somewhat irregular 
duties incidfnt to the opening of the war and to the imperfect organization of the 
volunteer army, found able hands and willing hearts among her number, while the 
mutual good fediug between officers and men, and between the men themselves, and 
the genuine and marked respect which was always shown the commanding officer, dis- 
tinguished the F fih Regiment. Its services in the trying times of the nation, and its 
well wrought deeds, will be its most enduring monument.

Company A. (Mechanic Light Infantry), Salem. — 5th Reg. 

Organized Feb. 2f), 1S07, and made their first parade July 4, of the same year, Perlcy 
Putnam, Commander. 

From the above date to the present time this company has never been re-organized, and 
the smallest number that ever paraded is twenty-five non-commissioned oSicers and 

Orders were received from Col. Lawrence, of the 5th Regiment, M. V. M., April 19, 1861, 
at .S o'clock, p. Jr., to report at Faneuil Hall, Boston, on the 20th, at 10 o'clock, A. ji. At 
7 o'clock the next morning, (April 20), the company assembled at the armory, and one hun- 
dred and twenty men, including three commissioned officers, answered to roll-call ; after 
which they were formed into lino and marched to the city hall, where Col. Perley Putnam, 
the first commander, in behalf of the ladies, presented to them a beautiful silk "AMEni- 
(AX Flag " The city did them honor ; the citizens cheered them as they marched to the 
depot ; friends gave them their kind farewell, and the whole community viewed their 
departure with a satisfactory pride. 

At 10 o'clock precisely, they reported for duty at Faneuil Hall, Boston. There being 
one hundred and twenty men, the surplus over the number required were dismissed and 
sent home, much to their disappointment. 



On their return to Salem, August 1, they were received by the old members, numbering 
over cue hundred men, organized into a battalion, under command of past Commander 
Wm. R. Brown; also Salem Cadets, Major Marks ; Union Drill Club, Capt. Whipple, and 
Zouave Drill Club, Capt. Woodbury, who tendered them an escort. They were received at 
the City Hall by the City Government, and welcomed home by His Honor Mayor Stephen 
P. Webb, in belialf of the citizens, after which they sat down at Mechanic Hall to a bounti- 
ful dinner, provided by the city. Thus ended the three and one-half months' campaign. 

The company, previous to its being attached to the 5th Regiment, for the three months' 
service, was known as Company B, 7th Regiment, and since its return has again taken its 
old position in the M. V. M. 

There are now fifty-eight members in this company who were at the battle of Bull Run, 
July 21.

Company O (Charlestown Artillery), Charlestown.— 5th Keg. 

The company is known as the Charlestown Artillery, and«as formerly Co. D, 1st Reg. 
of Artillery ; but, several years ag-o, was changed, with several other companies, into 
Infantry, and has since been known as Co. D, 5th Regt. Infantry M. V. M. While the 5th 
Regiment was in Washington, in May last, the companies were re-lettered, ahd the Char- 
lestown Artillery became Co. C; but, since the return of the regiment, the old companies 
have received their former letters. The Charlestowit Artillery was organized May 22, 
1786, and was the first company to celebrate the anniversary of the Battle of Bunker Hill, 
June 17, 1786. Sometime in 18.30, the company disbanded, but was re-organized Nov. 13, 
1831, and has continued to prosper ever since. 

William R. Swan, Captain of the Charlestown Artillery, received orders to assemble his 
command at their armory, at 12 o'clock, M., Wednesday, April 17, and by noon of the next 
day they were ready to march. But orders came for the company to hold themselves in 
readiness, at their armory, to march at any moment. On Friday, April 19, the Fifth Regi- 
ment was ordered to rendezvous at Faneuil Hall ; and tha Artillery, in company with the 
City Guards, of Charlestown, marched over to Boston to the hall, where they remained 
until the regiment departed for Washington, at 5 o'clock Sunday morning, April 21. This 
company, on leaving Charlestown. had abundant evidence of the affection and high esteem 
with which their fellow-citizens regard them ; and, on their return from the war, another 
demonstration was made in honor of their patriotic devotion. [See notice on page 189, 
under Company K.] 

In just three mouths from the day they, left Boston, July 21, the Fifth Regiment, num- 
bering between 700 and 800 fighting men, among whom were the Charlestown Artillery, 
left Centrevillo, Va., for Bull Run. On that day the Charlestown Artillery, Co. C, was 
ordered, with the regiment, to the brow of the eminence directly in front of the main 
battery of the enemy, and were there exposed to a gallino- fire from the battery for nearly 
thirty-five minutes, and but for the orders and coolness ot Col. Lawrence, who commanded 
the company to fall flat on their faces, they would have been most terribly cut up by the 
shower of shot and shell that was poured upon them. Returning home at the expiration 
of their term of service, July 30, 1861, they were warmly welcomed, the people turning out 
en masse to receive them.

had been drilling daily, preparatory to the call, they were ready to rush to the rescue of 
Washington and their country. The reception of the order fired the town with enthusiasm, 
and the citizens turned out ea masse { a meeting was held, at which speeches were made ; 
a purse and a flag were presented ; also a Testament to each member of the company. 
The people then escorted them to the railroad station, aftd they left the same day at 5, p.m. 
Their return to Haverhill, in July, was the occasion for a similar demonstration as that 
which was given them at their departure in April. A large number of this company soon 
after re-enlisted. The town and the citizens contributed about $2,400 in cash, clothing, 
and other articles for the company.

Company E (Lawrence Light Guard), Medford.— 5tli Eeg. 

Organized Feb. 12, 1851. The call for this gallant corps to aid in the defence of the Union 
met a hearty response from all its members, and the inhabitants of Medford exhibited the 
deepest interest in their behalf and the glorious cause. Upon their leaving home, April 
19, an impressive prayer was offered by Rev. Mr. Ames, in the Square, and several hundred 
citizens escorted them to Boston. At an enthusiastic meeting of the citizens, over six 
thousand dollars were quickly raised for the purpose of providing the soldiers with a new 
uniform, and for the relief of their families during their absence. 

On the return of the 5th Regiment to Boston, July 30, 1861, the company was preceded 
home by an escort of the citizens of Medford ; and, as they entered the town, the bells were 
rung, salutes fired, and music discoursed its welcome eloquently. At the Town Hall, an 
eloquent and patriotic speech of welcome was made by Thomas S. Harlow, Esq., and res- 
ponded to by Capt. Hutehins. Loud cheers were given, and many a hearty greeting ex- 
changed. The citizens of Medford, proud of their well-drilled corps, had for years given 
it their hearty support, and when it had been tried and found not wanting, they viewed with 
satisfactory pride their honorable return from the war.

Company Q- (Concord Artillery), Concord.— 5tli Keg, 

Was Company A, Concord Artillery. The letter was changed while at Washington, but 
lias always been known as Company A, even when it belonged to the First Regiment of 
Artillery. The company was incorporated, on petition of Charles Hammond and others, 
Feb. 28, 1804, and held their first public parade on the 4th of July following. The charter 
says, — "Whereas, Major John Buttrick and Capt. Isaac Davis, with a party of armed 
yeomanry, did, on the birth-day of our Revolution, attack and defeat a superior number of 



tlie invaders of our country, who were most advantag'eously posted at the North Bridge of 
Concord, it is ordered that the prayer of the petition be f,n-anted, and that two brass fleld- 
pieees, with proper apparatus, be provided for said company, with siutable engravings, 
to commemorate and render honor to tlie action wliiefi led to the victory of the day, and 
to perpetuate the names of the gallant Buttrick and Hosmer, and also to animate, in future, 
the ardor and bravery of the defenders of our country." In the war of 1812, the artillery 
were ordered to South Boston, where they remained in camp three mouth-^. They marched 
to Boston with the Concord Light Infantry and the Actou IJlues, " and, as they passed 
through Boston," as an observer said, " they were cheered tlirough the town, and they 
crossed over to South Boston on scows." (South Boston Bridge then was not in exist- 

Orders were received long before light, on the 10th of April, 18G1, to report on Bos- 
tonCommon, and at noon of that day, the anniversary of the Battle of Concord, they left 
Concord, under the command of Capt. Geo. L. Prescott. The whole people turned out to 
witness their departure, and they were addressed by .Judge Hoar, and prayers were offered 
for their well-being and safe return. They left Boston on the 21st, and sailed the next 
morning from New York for Annapolis, and from thence marched to Washington, through 
a country iilled with disloyalists. The company was in the Battle of Bull Kun, where five 
of them were taken prisoners. On their return to Concord, the inhabitants turned out e?i 
masse, and gave them a most cordial reception. The company has always taken a high 
stand as a well-drilled company, and the most respectable citizens of the town have been 
members, and have always given the company their influence and assistance.

Company H (Salem City Guards), Salem.— 5tli Eeg. 

The Salem City Guards was organized Nov. 14, 1840. This company belongs to the 7th 
Regiment of the Mass. Volunteer Militia. A dispatch was received from Col. Lawrence, 
by telegraph, in the forenoon of the 19th of April, to see if they would like to be attached 
to the 5th Regiment, and if so, how many they could muster. An answer was imme- 
diately returned that they were ready to go, and would bring at least forty-five men. 
An order came at 1, p.m., for the company to report themselves on Boston Common at 4, 
P.M.; but, for some cause, they were unable to leave Salem until the next day — Saturday, 
the 20th, at 9. A.M. — when they left, with seventy-four men and ofiicers, in company with 
the Salem Ittechanic Light Infantry, and on arriving in Boston, went iinniediately to 
Faneuil Hall. 

On their return from Washington, they arrived in Salem, in company with the Salem 
Mechanic Light Infantry, on the .3Ist of July, at about 10 o'clock, a.m. A salute was fired, 
the bells were rung, and they marched through the principal streets, escorted by the past 
members of each company, the Salem Divisionary Corps Independent Cadets, and the drill 
clubs of the city. When they arrived in front of the City Hall, they were welcomed 
home by the mayor, in behalf of the citizens, after which they partook of a substantial din- 
ner at Mechanic Hall.

Company I (Somerville Light Infantry), Somerville.— 5th Eeg. 

The members of this company answered with alacrity the summons of the government 
to meet and repel the traitors. April 20, 1861, the company left their armory, under an 
escort of nearly a thousand citizens, with a band of music, and marched to Boston, where 
they arrived about noon, and were quartered with their regiment in Faneuil Hall. Before 
leaving Somerville, a meeting was held by the citizens to aid the families of the company, 
and over four thousand dollars obtained ; and on their leaving, a prayer was offered, and 
speeches made, and a Testament presented to every member of the company. 

July .30, 1861, the company, having served its term, returned to Somerville, and their 
townsmen testified their appreciation of their patriotism and bravery by joining in larw 
numbers to do escort duty, and giving the returned soldiers a warm welcome and a sub- 
stantial collation. A bouquet was presented to each member of the company by the ladies ; 
a prayer was offered by the Eev. G. G. Fairbaiilis, after which a speech of welcome was 
made by Joseph B. Proctor, Esq., and responded to by Capt. Brastow. The Home Guards 
and the firemen joined in the reception, and a salute of one hundred guns was fired on the

active, and three hundred and fifty civil members. At the call of the President of tlie 
United States for troops in April, 1801, the company immediately set about perfecting- 
themselves in discipline and drill, and were ready to respond promptly to the call. April 
17, they received orders, and left for Boston to join their regiment. Before leaving the 
armory, patriotic addresses were made by several prominent citizens, and an impressive 
prayer otfercd by the Rev. Mr. Kittredge, of Green Street Church. Tlie same gentleman 
also presented a pocket Bible to each member of the company. They left the armory amid 
the cheers and '^God-speeds " of a thousand anxious hearts, and were escorted to Boston by 
an immense concourse of citizens, where they remained until Sunday morning, the 21st, 
when they left for Washington. 

The story of the camp-life of this company is similar to that of every company at the 
seat of war. Every attention was paid to the wants of tlie company by its friends at 
home, and every mail brought some memento to remind the members of the dear ones 
left behind. One particularly i*iteresting feature of the campaign was the celebration of 
their anniversary on the soil of Virginia, by a parade and dinner on the 17th of June. 
,The health of the company was exceedingly good, and the men bore with indomitable 
firmness the privations ancl iiardships they were called upon to endure. Five members 
were left behind. Samuel E. Chandler, Henry A. Angier, and Converse A. Babeock, 
were wounded at the Battle of Manassas, and are prisoners, together with George T. 
Childs, at New Orleans. Sumner Fish is supposed to have been killed, as nothing has 
been heard from him since the day of the battle. They were brave and genenus fellows, 
and have the warmest sympathies of their more fortunate companions in ariris and a 
host of admiring friends. 

July 30, the company returned home, and its reception, in common with the Chai-les- 
town Artillery, was one of the grandest demonstrations that has been witnessed in 
Charlestown for many years. Quite a number of the members have re-enlisted in other

Sixth Regiment. Infantry. 

This regiment, though widely scattered in the counties of Middlesex and Essex, 
mustered inforce at Lowell, April 16th, 1861, at nine o'clock in the morning, very few 
of them having had more than twelve hours' notice, and some a great deal less. Before 
leaving Lowell, they were addressed by the Mayor and others, and were cheered by 
crowds of enthusiastic citizens. Arriving in Boston at one o'clock the same day, they 
met with another warm reception, and were escorted by crowds of citizens to Faneuil 
Hall, and from thence to Boylston Hall. 


April 17th, at eleven o'clock, the regiment marched to the State House, to exchange 
their old muskets for the rifled arms. Here the Governor addressed them in the most 
complimentary manner, giving utterance to sentiments of the highest patriotism, and 
expressing his confidence in their devotion, courage, and efficiency in the cause they 
had so nobly rallied to support. The Governor then presented the colors of the regi- 
ment to Colonel Jones, who responded with much feeling, pledging their determined 
support to them. Before leaving Boston, as a mark of respect to Colonel Jones, it was 
decided to adopt, as the " Daughter of the Regiment," his daughter, an intelligent and 
interesting girl of twelve years. She was presented by Major Watson, and received with 
the strongest demonstrations of joy. At seven in the evening the regiment marched to 
the Worcester dtpot, and took the cars for Washington. Along the route they were 
greeted by the people, and saluted by the discharge of cannon and the ringing of bells. 
At Worcester, an immense crowd met them with patriotic demonstrations, and at 
Springfield, where they arrived at a late hour, they wer§ received by the military and 
fire departments, and by thousands who manifested a deep interest in them. Arriving 
at New York about sunrise, April 18th, they received a splendid ovation from the, 
soldiers and citizens of that city. While passing down Broadway, a venerable gentle- 
man, formerly of Ipswich, Mass., said, with much emotion, " These boys won't run : 
I commanded a regiment of them in the last war." At twelve o'clock, they left 
the city by the Jersey Ferry. 

Crossing the river, the troops entered the spacious depot of the N. J. Railroad Co., 
which was crowded with patriotic Jerseymen and women. From the balcony around 
the building, the bright eyes of many a fair one looked down in sparkling delight at the 
prompt march of the brave Massachusetts boys to their country's defence. Flags were 
waved by hundreds of fair hands, and while the volunteers were waiting for the cars, 
not a few of the miniature copies of the national emblem were smilingly transferred to 
their keeping. After considerable delay, the cars moved on amidst a perfect avalanche 
of cheers. 

The N. Y. Eve. Post said: "As the first detachment of the army which New Eng- 
land will speedily supply the government,, the regiment made a highly creditable ap- 
pearance, and was shown no more attention than its promptness and patriotism rightly 
deserved at the hands of the people of New York." 

All along the route through New Jersey, the people gathered at every station to wel- 
come them. They reached Philadelphia at seven P. M., and so densely filled were the 
streets with people who came forth to receive them, that it was with much difticulty the 
column could push its way through. A member of the regiment stales: "So enthusi- 
astic were our friends, that they rushed into our ranks, threw their arms about the 
necks of our soldiers, and emptying their own pockets for our benefit, seemed fairly 
beside tiicmselves with joy. I doubt whether old Massachusetts ever before or since 
received such encomiums, or her sons such a generous welcome, as on that night in the 
city (jf brotherly love." 

After partaking of supper at the Continental, the troops were quartered at the Girard 
House. But hardly had they sought the repose so much needed, after their hurried and 
exciting jfmrney of the day and previous night, when they were aroused by the long 
roll calling them to arms, in consequence of information brought by Col. Phillips, of 
Worcester, to the eft'ect that arrangements were being made to dispute their passage 
through Ealtimore, and that, to save the capital, it was necessary to reach there before 
another night. Colonel Jones immediately resumed the march, and took the cars for 
Baltimore, at one o'clock on the morning of the 19th of April. 

The following report by Colonel Jones, in regard to the passage through Baltimore, 
was made to General Butler's adjutant, April 22d, after the regiment had arrived in 
Wasliiiigton : — 

" Brigade Major William H. Clemence : — , 

" In accordance with Special Order No. 6, I proceeded with my command toward the 
city of Washington, leaving Boston on the evening of the 17th April, arrived in New 
York on the morning of the 18th, and proceeded to Philadelphia, reaching that place 
on the same evening. On our way John Brady, of Company H, Lowell, was taken 
insane, and deeming it unsafe to have him accompany the regiment, I left him at De- 
lanco. New Jersey, with I. C. Buck, with directions that he should telegraph Mayor 
Sargeant, of Lowell, as to the disposition of him ; and we proceeded thence to Balti- 
more, reaching that place at noon on the 19th. After leaving Philadelphia, I received 
intimation that our passage through the city of
