, the loss in that regiment was slight, but its adventures many, and its trophies in the way of weapons and supplies considerable. A very animated description of this fight may be found in Lincoln's 34th Mass., p. 143, this being, perhaps, the most graphic, as to personal narrative, among the Massachusetts regimental histories, and all the more because quite unstudied. The reports of Col. G. D. Wells, as brigade commander, are in Official War Records, 48, pp. 486-489. In this contest Corporal Gage of Co. E, bearing the State flag, was shot through the breast, as was another of the color-guard, Corporal Clark of Co. K, each dying without a word. Private McDaniels of Co. E, being hit in the foot, sat down, cut out the ball with his knife and recommenced firing. It was in this fight also that Lieut. Henry Bacon, when some of his company began bewailing by name the deaths of some comrades, remarked amid a storm of bullets, Shut your mouths, boys, and let your rifles do the talking.
