all the hard marches and desperate fighting. It was not an encouraging thought. The tents were pitched on the side of the hill. Maryland Heights towered grandly on one side, while Loudon sheltered the other side and the front was covered by Bolivar. The position was like a triangle, the sides being the various Heights, while the openings made by the Potomac and the Shenandoah formed the angles. The work of recuperating the Nineteenth commenced at once. It was rumored that the regimentivar Heights the regiment took its ease and comfort and soon was ready for another battle. The weather was glorious, the scenery as enchanting as any in America. The lovely mount of Loudon, the rugged grandeur of Maryland Heights, the swell of Bolivar, the plain of Charlestown, the western background of the Blue Ridge and the beautiful junction of the Potomac and the Shenandoah formed a picture richer far than many scenes across the sea. The men were put through a severe course of drill a

frosty nights, but, thanks to the Virginia farmers, there were plenty of rail fences and fires were kept burning all night, around which gathered the insufficiently clad and they were thus kept from actual suffering during the first week. After that it was colder, with snow and rain storms, and all suffered more or less. The crops were not all harvested and that added to the comforts. Leaving camp soon after sunrise the brigade filed into the Charlestown road and through the village of Bolivar, taking a cross road to the east, down a steep hill, to the Shenandoah River, thence north to its junction with the Potomac. After crossing, the brigade passed around Loudon Heights into the valley beyond and began the march south at a leisurely pace. To the left was the Bull Run Ridge, beyond which lay the town of Leesburg and the battlefield of Ball's Bluff. The road over which they marched lay close to the mountains they had crossed,— the Blue Ridge, and the line marched down the east

near the river were made available for the use of rifle men, and zig-zags were constructed to enable the men to get in and out of the rifle pits under cover. All this was done at night, and so secretly and quietly that I do not believe the enemy had any conception of the minute and careful preparations that had been made to defeat any attempt to cross the river in my front. There were many remarkable escapes during the day. Private O'Connell, one of the recruits who had joined Co. C at Bolivar, had seven bullet holes in his overcoat collar, some of the bullets having gone deep enough to cut his shirt collar, but not harming him. At daybreak on the morning of the 12th the right of the Union line was withdrawn from the warehouse and the regiment stacked arms and remained on Caroline street until noon of the 13th. This period of inaction gave the men an opportunity to look around at the ruin which had been caused by the Union artillery. The city had suffered heavily,—in one hou
