at enthusiasm at the North and corresponding depression at the South. It was the first large capture of Confederates during the war, including 2,677 prisoners besides 6 forts, 40 guns and 3,000 small arms. The Richmond Examiner said: The loss of an entire army at Roanoke Island is certainly the most fearful event of the war. The same regiments were engaged, with heavy losses, at New Berne (March 14). At this battle Lieut.-Col. Henry Merritt of Salem (23d Mass.) was killed, and Acting Adjt. Frazar A. Stearns (21st Mass.), son of the president of Amherst College. Seventeen members or graduates of the college fell in this battle; and in recognition of this a captured cannon, on which Colonel Clark (himself an Amherst professor) had mounted while cheering on his men, was presented by the regiment to the college. At New Berne also fell in battle Lieut. Joseph W. Lawton of the 27th; and a young man of the rarest promise, James Custis Hopkinson, private of the 44th Mass., died by disease.
