On June 14 another assault was made on the enemy's fortifications, very similar in plan and result to that of May Gardner declined to do. On June 14 another assault was made on the enemy's fortifications, very similar in plan and result to that of May 27. It proved a terrible disaster, the Union loss being 1,805 men, among them Brigadier-General Charles J. Paine, seriously wounded. Banks now began to prepare for a regular siege. The lesson of the danger and usual failure of a direct assault against well built and manned fortifications, so often taught to other commanders bon July 4, 1863. There was great cheering and rejoicing, and salvos of shotted artillery; and the news of Grant's victory was thrown inside the rebel lines. General Gardner, the commander, asked to be assured of the truth of the report, and, being convinced of its accuracy, immediately asked for a cessation of hostilities. Short

Prior to this I had been badly injured by falling through a stone culvert. This occurred late at night, when a party of our regiment was out in search of a rebel officer, who we heard was visiting friends seven miles distant. The injury received was a bad cut in the eye-brow. Mrs. George West, wife of Captain West, dressed the wound. She with several officers' wives was with the regiment at Relay House and Harper's Ferry. Again, late in June, 1862, while superintending the placing of Gardner's Indiana Battery on the crest of Bolivar Heights, a six-pound solid shot from the enemy at Halltown struck the wheel of one of the guns, and glancing, entered the flank of my horse, carrying a part of my coat tails with it. The horse, in falling, carried me under him, dislocating my knee. This laid me up for some time. While the Tenth Maine was quartered at Harper's Ferry, Captain West's company (D) was provost guard, and Captain West was provost-marshal of Harper's Ferry and vicinity.

According to the reports of the Confederate generals themselves, they had no more than twenty thousand men answering the rolls, all of them exhausted by fatigue and hunger, discouraged by so many failures, and around whom was

In 1790, there were 10 colored persons in the town; 6 in 1800, 5 in 1810. In 1753 one Prince Jonah, a slave of Abraham Bigelow of Weston, found a leather pocket case with tickets of land lying in Gardner, Canada, east of Northfield, belonging to Joe Williams, also one dollar, one pistareen, and two coppers, and an empty money bag. This was so extraordinary an occurrence that it was entered upon the town records, and there stands a witness to the
