er taken by the enemy or destroyed, rather than be left behind. The Paymaster also came, and the men were paid off. The headquarters of the quartermaster and subsistance departments were located at a beautiful plantation called Westover, but three miles down the river. Here the wagon trains reported for rations and forage which once more were issued with regularity. The supply boats of the government and the Christian Commission furnished a limited supply of potatoes and onions. On July 3, the day after the arrival at Harrison's Landing, General McClellan came through the camps, making a short speech to each brigade. General Dana, commanding the third brigade, called for three cheers for the new campaign and they were given, not so much for the campaign as for little Mac. The boys were always ready to shout for him. In the afternoon the Nineteenth regiment marched back two miles and went into camp. The next day was the glorious Fourth and it was celebrated with a national
upon the ridge to the left, and details from both corps bore off the wounded from the field. Col. Devereux commanding the regiment, says of the action of the men on this day: The most tried and veteran troops are never expected to march deliberately with a fire in their backs. It is universally agreed that when they can face the enemy, they must stand to the last, but when they have to turn their backs, it is not expected of them. I have always felt that, although on the following day (July 3rd), the Nineteenth did a magnificent thing, brilliant act as it was for a test of soldiership of a character most unexampled, what they did on the second day takes higher rank. During the first retirement of the men of the Nineteenth Massachusetts, the color sergeant was shot down and dropped the flag. It was immediately picked up by Benjamin H. Jellison of Co. C., who had become crowded into the color guard. He was at once made a sergeant and carried the color during the balance of this

am fat. The distance to Danville is 45 miles and the reason for our march is the fact that the railroad is torn up by Yankee troops. Started just before night and before dark halted in a swampy place where we spent the night. July 1st. Marched nearly all day and camped on the bank of Stanton River. Have suffered terribly for water, it being very scarce, except at farmhouses, where the rebel guard would not allow us to stop and get a drink. July 2nd. Marched until nearly sunset. July 3rd. Marched at daylight. Rations gave out at noon. Halted toward sunset on the bank of a river and camped for the night. July 4th. Marched until along in the forenoon when we arrived in Danville, where we were put into some old brick buildings and we have to go a few at a time to get a drink. At dark received a small piece of ham fat, about two inches square, but nothing to eat with it. Can hardly stand the pangs of hunger. July 6th. This morning marched to the railroad where we too

5 P. M. on the same day; arrived in Philadelphia at 6 A. M. on July 1st. It is needless to say that from the Philadelphians the regiment experienced a cordial and substantial welcome at the Old Cooper Shop. Leaving Philadelphia at 2 P. M. on July 1, the men reached New York on the same night and there the regiment received from Colonel Howe, his associates and friends, a reception worthy of it and them. Leaving New York at 3 P. M., July 2, the regiment arrived at Readville at 9 A. M. on July 3, to await final discharge and payment. The men were allowed to leave for their homes immediately and with only the delay necessary to dispose of guns and equipments, they took advantage of the opportunity. Of the 37 commissioned officers who left Massachusetts with the regiment in 1861, only 1 returned,—Colonel Edmund Rice who went out as captain and returned as colonel commanding the regiment. Fourteen officers and 250 men were either killed or died of wounds received in action, an
