He begged so hard that he was finally permitted to fall in, the most pleased man in the regiment. During the period of waiting, Burnside had sent a summons across the river for the surrender of the city and his demand had been refused. Then, in accordance with the plan of the commanding general, on the morning of December 11, an attempt was made to lay the pontoons from near the Lacy House on the north bank, directly to Fauquier Street, the main street of Fredericksburg which ran to the river. Two more were begun a third of a mile down the stream and two others a mile and a half farther down, near the house of a Mr. Bernard. Sumner and Hooker were to use those opposite the town and Franklin those farther down. Work was begun at three o'clock in the morning, and the pontoon train moved across a ploughed fi

th of December, 1862. Lieut. Col. Devereux called for 20 volunteers who, after being joined by a like number from the 20th Massachusetts regiment, were to cross the river in boats. The required number at once stepped forward and Lieut. Ferris volunteered to command them. The squad moved away in the darkness, toward the river. When near the high bank overlooking the river road, they halted near two pontoon boats. Each man felt then that the expedition was to be a repetition of the 11th of December on a smaller scale. Lieut. Ferris explained that each party would fill one of the pontoons and, together, charge across the river and engage the enemy. He said it would be a very hot job and that the most of the squad would be killed. As for himself, he said that he expected to be killed, and his closing words were: If there's any man here who's afraid to go to hell within the next few hours he wants to go back to the regiment. Now is your chance to go back. I don't want a man to
