George H. Gordon, From Brook Farm to Cedar Mountain, Chapter 2: Harper's Ferry and Maryland Heights—Darnstown, Maryland.--Muddy Branch and Seneca Creek on the Potomac—Winter quarters at Frederick, Md. (search)
g the following despatch, which I read by the light of the officer's lantern:-- Colonel Gordon, I am directed by Colonel Donelly to send a messenger to you with information that the Rebels are marching on Harper's Ferry 6,000 strong. Yours vestructions are to dispute the passage of fords, and if too strongly pressed, to retire slowly towards Buckeyestown. Colonel Donelly has two pieces of artillery, which he is directed to send to you if required. Call on Colonel Geary to send you two wagons packed, fires lighted, and rations cooked. Despatches were sent in various directions; down the river to Colonel Donelly of the Twenty-eighth N. Y., for artillery,--a message carried by Dr. Sargent, who pressingly urged himself as a volufter sunrise when I received an order from General Banks, issued the day before, directing me to join my regiment to Colonel Donelly's, the two to proceed via Buckeyestown to rejoin their brigades.

he two valleys of the Shenandoah flow into one, along the pike to the bridge over the North Fork of the Shenandoah at Penn's Ferry, a distance of twenty miles from our main encampment at Harrisonburg. At this point Jackson, determined to burn the bridge if we attempted to cross, had lined it with light kindling-wood, to ignite at the touch. As along the valley, so here there was constant picket-firing. During my only visit to the extreme outpost, where the Twentyeighth Regiment under Colonel Donelly was stationed, I saw one of his men — shot at his post by some expert and remorseless Rebel hunter — lying dead at the station. Once, however, the enemy failing to make the bridge in time, were overtaken by our cavalry, and prisoners were brought into Harrisonburg by General Hatch. One of the Rebel officers, being greatly annoyed at the triumphant tones of our men, turned to rebuke them, at which the storm began to rage with such violence that Hatch ordered the prisoner to maintain sil

t I could find, of all, only what remained of the six Wisconsin companies. Of the Twenty-eighth New York, the Fifth Connecticut, or the Forty-sixth Pennsylvania, not a vestige met my eyes. The slaughter had indeed been fearful. Though the Forty-sixth New York, the Fifth Connecticut, and part of the Forty-sixth Pennsylvania had reached a battery upon which they had charged, they had been compelled to fall back, leaving many of their number on the field. In the Twenty-eighth New York, Colonel Donelly was borne mortally wounded from the field; Lieutenant-Colonel Brown's arm was shattered; Major Cook was wounded, and a prisoner. In the Forty-sixth Pennsylvania, Colonel Knipe was twice wounded, and was carried from the field; Lieutenant-Colonel Selfridge's horse was shot under him; Major Mathews fell, dangerously wounded: of its twenty company-officers who went into action, 17 were killed, wounded, or missing, and 226 of its rank and file.
