Rebellion Record: a Diary of American Events: Documents and Narratives, Volume 1. (ed. Frank Moore), Doc. 71.--departure of the New York Seventh Regiment. (search)
news of the attack on Fort Sumter. Although it was announced that 8 P. M. was the time for the assembling of the Regiment at their Armory, over Tompkins Market, Broadway was the scene of gathering for hundreds of people long before noon. The march of the second instalment of Massachusetts troops,. early in the forenoon, was but a hours, as indeed they had, they were prepared to stand on the tip-toe of expectation till their favorite Regiment passed, even if nightfall came. The aspect of Broadway was very gay indeed. Minus the firing of pistols and the explosion of Chinese crackers, it was many Fourth-of-Julys rolled into one. The Stars and Stripes wereers as might cheer the heart of the forlornest bachelor, if there was any such among those noble soldiers. Once in line, they proceeded through Fourth-street to Broadway, down that great thoroughfare to Cortlandt-street, and across the ferry, in boats provided for the purpose, to Jersey City. The line of march was a perfect ovat
e a sound body, instead of one subject to the symptoms of reversion. We shall have it by sacrifices of money, work, and life, and the Union will exist now as ever; and the North will be victorious. It has often been asserted that the almighty dollar was the only thing Americans cared about; but it is evident there is something higher in existence, and it wanted only the emergency to prove it. Who had seen the gallant Seventh Regiment marching yesterday, when called by their country, along Broadway, who does not understand that the love of liberty is predominant over every other thing, and can never be extinguished? There was no aristocracy about America or the Seventh Regiment. The merchant, the laborer, all classes went to work for the same great cause. One idea elevated them, one wish and one action — that is, the re-establishment of the Union; and, as they do, let us not look back upon the party; let us face future danger and future victory. If you do this, my fellow-citizens,
er had been received to the effect that the Grey Troup should leave the howitzers and take six 6-pounders. The Governor had been telegraphed for permission to take horses and harness, and they had to wait for a reply. At length the order for the horses and harness was received, and immediately operations were set on foot for starting. A large body of friends of the regiment walked ahead of the procession. These included about one hundred of the G. L. Fox Guard. All along the line, on Broadway, down to Canal street, the windows of the various stores, and the sidewalks, were crowded with ladies and children, all desirous of seeing the departure of the Washington Greys for the field of battle; many of them with well-tried hearts were comforting each other with an indefinite variety of patriotic sentiments. The regiment was greeted with the most vociferous cheering all the way down to Pier No. 36 North River, where they embarked, being 1,000 in number) on board the steamship Alabam
aps, more closely than any other of our volunteers. The regiment is not only thoroughly equipped and sworn for the war, but every man is perfectly and completely drilled in the manual and manoeuvres of the soldier, as well as ready and anxious to be of service to his country. Gymnastic training, in most cases the work of years, has made the men tough and muscular, and capable of great endurance. As they marched from Forty-third street, down Second avenue, through Twentieth street, down Broadway, and thence by way of Pearl and Chatham streets to Canal street, many thousand people greeted them from the sidewalks and windows, bestowing high and unqualified praise upon them. There were many, hitherto knowing nothing of their existence, who awarded them the palm for stout soldierly bearing, among all the regiments that have yet left New York. The procession, including the escort, was quite imposing, as every German society in the city resolved to be out, and was represented on the
