hat it was not fordable. Tuesday afternoon, passing up with the main column on the left bank of the Neuse, we bivouacked at night about twelve miles from Goldsboro. On Wednesday we were detached to guard the baggage train, from which duty we were relieved in the afternoon, when the baggage train and troops were countermarched, after the burning of the railroad bridge by the advance. Keeping our place on the return on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, we encamped on Saturday night near Deep Gully, and arrived at our barracks on the Trent at eleven o'clock on Sunday morning, my men considerably jaded and footsore. The orders in regard to pillaging and foraging were enforced, and the men suffered in consequence of an insufficient supply of meat. Taking into consideration the fact that this regiment had been but a week in the field, and received their arms only two days before they received marching orders, I have the honor to report that they behaved well during the entire march.
attack, they would go out and feel them. Four companies of the Fifth Rhode Island and a company of cavalry went two miles toward Kinston on the railroad, then four miles to the left to Red House road toward Kinston, some four or five miles to Deep Gully, a small, deep creek in a deep cut. The ashes were warm at the camp-fire, and the trees were splintered from the firing of the previously day. We learned that Belger's battery was planted in the face of the enemy and under fire, supported by to return, two or three companies of cavalry came dashing past from the direction of Newbern. On our return we met General Amory with some two thousand men and some artillery moving out. The force of Gen. Amory encamped about three miles from Deep Gully, and next morning went some four miles toward Kinston, and formed in line of battle, and sent some cavalry on still further, but saw no one, but were informed that the evening before some twenty thousand troops passed in return to Kinston.

six miles, to strike the railroad and capture the train, but the enemy by telegraphic communications were apprised of our move, and returned the train loaded with troops, just five minutes before I reached the road. It was my intention, had I gotten the train, to place my men upon it and go into Newbern. At this point my brigade was halted to meet any advance of the enemy from the town, while General Clingman was ordered across to the Trent road to prevent the return of the enemy from Deep Gully, and also to take all stragglers, but not knowing the country, he failed to reach the road, which was extremely unfortunate, as during the evening, at different times (500) five hundred infantry and (400) four hundred cavalry, passed into the town panic-stricken, leaving their camps in wild confusion. After General Corse came up to the railroad, I moved my brigade within a mile to the front of the town, to await the sound of Barton's guns from the opposite side of Trent river, when, muc

This post was garrisoned by this company as long as the regiment remained in North Carolina. Jan. 17, 1863.—Seven companies of the regiment marched with a portion of the First Brigade on an expedition to Pollocksville. Having accomplished their object successfully, and having driven back the enemy at White Oak Creek, they returned to Newbern. On the 20th of February, the regiment suffering severely from a steadily increasing sick list, six companies were moved from the barracks to Deep Gully, as a sanitary measure; but, the shelter tents proving quite insufficient for the comfort of the men suffering from malaria, they returned in a week to the barracks. On the 1st of March, Colonel Sprague, with his regiment, was ordered to relieve the companies stationed at different points along the railroad between Newbern and Morehead City; also those at Morehead City, Beaufort, and Evans' Mills. March 30, Colonel Sprague, in addition to his other duties, assumed command of the post at
icers to the war, and had at one time so depleted itself that only six active members remained on its rolls. The 23d and 45th also met with some considerable loss at Whitehall but neither received any at Goldsborough. The 17th, 24th, 43d, 44th and 51st were also in the expedition, making in all about half the force. On Jan. 19, 1863, five companies of the 51st Mass. Infantry were in action at Young's Cross Roads, N. C., but without loss. There were engagements round New Berne, one at Deep Gully March 14, 1863, when Colonel Pickett (25th Mass.) held an outpost with much risk but small loss, See his report in Official War Records, XVIII, 187. and another March 14, when Lieut. Joseph W. Lawton of Ware (27th Mass.) and several others were killed. In an attack on Fort Anderson May 14 Lieut. N. S. Barstow (24th Mass.), acting signal officer, especially compliments his flagman, Timothy S. Marsh of Co. D, 21st Mass., for having behaved with admirable coolness under very severe fire;
