Waitt, Ernest Linden, History of the Nineteenth regiment, Massachusetts volunteer infantry , 1861-1865, Chapter 1: organization of the regiment. (search)
ee months of independent, hap-hazard drill had been worse than useless and was immediately begun over again in the regulation manner. The new officers went earnestly to work drilling the regiment and many a hard day was spent tramping over the field in company and battalion drill. The service began to be less like a picnic as each day passed, but the men were getting acquainted with the musket and receiving that preparation which was to be of great benefit to them in later years. On August 18, Colonel Hinks received the following letter: Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Aug. 15, 1861. Sir: I am directed by His Excellency, the Commander-In-Chief, to inform you that the exigencies of the public service are such as imperatively to demand that your regiment be forwarded to the seat of war at the earliest possible moment, and in no event be delayed beyond the last day of the month. You are ordered to favor expedition in every practicable way. Yours truly, Wm. Schouler,
