, Jr., of Worcester, Mass. Brig.-Gen. John Newton, commanding the 3d Division, says in his report: My thanks are due to all, according to their opportunities, but especially to Brig.-Gen. Charles Devens, who commanded the advance and rear guard in the crossing and recrossing of the river. Official War Records, XXI, 535. In the main battle of Fredericksburg, December 13, the 18th Mass. Infantry (Col. Joseph Hayes) was conspicuous in a charge, nearly penetrating the enemy's position at Marye's Heights, where its dead and wounded were found lying close to the works. At the third assault upon the enemy's works in the afternoon, when the 19th Mass. was put in front to occupy some freshly made works, which it held until its ammunition was exhausted, seven color-bearers were shot down in succession; and on one occasion, when two were killed at once, and their colors lay on the ground, Lieut. Edgar M. Newcomb of Boston seized both flags and raised them, meeting his own death in so doing.
