e returned to camp at 10 o'clock and immediately received order to pack up and move. We did so, marching about a mile and camped about a mile and a half from the river. Rains very hard, so we pitched our tents. November 22nd. Inspection day. Some of the men are building a log hut for the Colonel. Something to do all the time. The river was low. It was easily forded. There was a small cavalry force of the enemy and a battery of artillery occupying the heights, commonly called Marye's Heights,, beyond Fredericksburg town. Old Bull Sumner, as he was called without irreverence, wanted to push across and capture those heights, but was forbidden and, instead of that, the regiments went into camp to await the arrival of the pontoon boats from Aquia Creek Landing. The small force on the other side cleared out after firing a few shots, leaving the Heights bare. They were only there for observation and were not expected to make a fight. The regiment encamped in a beautiful gr
arching to the front, and at noon the Nineteenth Massachusetts received its orders to participate in the storming of Marye's Heights. Dinner was served a little before noon and while it was being eaten a shell burst directly overhead, causing somved success, if courage and daring could entitle soldiers to victory.

On the morning following the engagement at Marye's Heights, the regiment received orders to take position in the rear where it remained until Monday at 7 P. M., when it advanc
Chapter 25: Chancellorsville Campaign. Volunteers again cross the river. Capture of Marye's Heights. When Burnside had fully determined upon the plans for the Chancellorsville Campaign, the Eleventh and Sixth Corps were crossed below the city and the rest of the Army at Bank's and United States fords,—the Nineteenth regimen out to the right of the city, the Nineteenth leading, and formed in line of battle along a road. The purpose was to turn the left of the enemy's position on Marye's Heights. Being under artillery fire from the enemy's works on the hill in front, the men of the Nineteenth were ordered to lie down in a hollow by the roadside, be they had lain for some time. Early's Division and Barksdale's Mississippi Brigade, who had occupied the position with artillery, fell back and the dreaded Marye's Heights were at last taken. Among the guns captured was a portion of the Washington artillery and two or three of the guns which the rebels had borrowed from the Uni
