On the next day a portion of the Garibaldi Regiment revolted, and forced its way across the bridge into Washington, where, after they had halted, they were surrounded by United States regulars, to whom they surrendered — They were lodged in jail. The unpopularity of their Colonel and Lieutenant Colonel was the supposed cause. About thirty of the same regiment refused to accept Minnie guns in stead of rifles, and were also lodged in jail.
