The uniform of the regiment is peculiarly appropriate for their position as marksmen, consisting of green frock coats, gray pantaloons, and green caps. The dress is made to accord with the colors of nature as much as possible, and is intended to be worn in summer. In winter the uniform will consist entirely of a gray pattern.--N. Y. World, Sept. 6.

The Twentieth Regiment was recruited at Camp Massasoit, Readville, and left the State for Washington on the 4th of September, 1861. William Raymond Lee, of Roxbury, a graduate of West Point; Francis W. Palfrey, of Boston, son of Hon. John G. Palfrey; and Paul J. Revere, of Boston,—were chiefly instrumental in raising the regiment: and they were commissioned, severally, colonel, lieutenant. The roster of this regiment contains the names most distinguished in the history of Massachusetts. The Twentieth bore a prominent part in the disastrous Battle of Ball's Bluff, Oct. 21, 1861. Many of the officers were killed and wounded. Colonel Lee, Major Revere, and Adjutant Charles L. Peirson, of Salem, were taken prisoners, and confined in a cell as hostages at Richmond.
