Harper's Encyclopedia of United States History (ed. Benson Lossing), Whitney, Addison O. 1839- (search)
Whitney, Addison O. 1839- Soldier; born in Waldo, Me., Oct. 30, 1839; became a mechanic in Lowell, Mass.; and joined the 6th Massachusetts Volunteer Militia. He accompanied the regiment on its march to the defence of the national capital, and while passing through Baltimore, Md., April 19, 1861, was killed during the attack on the regiment by the mob. Luther C. Ladd (born in Alexandria, N. H., Dec. 22, 1843), also a mechanic in Lowell and a comrade of Whitney, fell in the same attack, pierced by several bullets. These were the first casualties in the National army in the Civil War. The commonwealth of Massachusetts and the city of Lowell caused the remains of the two first martyrs to be placed beneath an imposing monument of Concord granite, erected in Merrimac Square, Lowell, and dedicated June 17, 1865.
Doc. 68--General orders--no. 3. Headquarters of the army, Washington, April 19, 1861. The Military Department of Washington is extended so as to include, in addition to the District of Columbia and Maryland, the States of Delaware and Pennsylvania, and will be commanded by Major-Gen. Patterson, belonging to the volunteers of the latter State. The Major-General will, as fast as they are mustered into service, post the volunteers of Pennsylvania all along the railroad from Wilmington, Del., to Washington City, in sufficient numbers and in such proximity as may give a reasonable protection to the lines of parallel wires, to the road, its rails, bridges, cars and stations. By command: Winfield Scott. E. D. Townsend, Assistant Adjutant-General.

Brune, esqs., who will proceed to Washington by an express train, at my request, in order to explain fully the fearful condition of our affairs in this city.

Hicks, Governor. Geo. Wm. Brown, Mayor. The following correspondence then took place between the governor and mayor and John W. Garrett, Esq., president of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad: Mayors office, city Hall, Baltimore, April 19, 1861. John W.

When Providence puts together the 19th of April, 1716, when the first blood was shed at Lexington, and the 19th of April, 1861, when the first blood was shed at Baltimore, I tell you it means something.

Brady: United States Circuit Court, Philadelphia, April 19, 1861. Wm. M. Evarts, Esq. :--My Dear Sir — I have been in this city since Saturday, engaged as counsel in a case, the trial of which is proceeding while I writethere is a Providence which presides over these movements. Look at this one single instance of Providential arrangement. The Massachusetts Regiment, on the 19th April, 1861, were assailed and two of their number killed, simply because they were on their way to protect the Federal capital. The first blood of the Revolution came f
fter a seven years war with Great Britain, again meets us face to face. The early scenes of their struggle for constitutional liberty have found in our recent experience an historic parallel of even chronological exactness. The blood of Massachusetts, shed at Lexington on the 19th of April, 1775, was not shed more gloriously than that of the sons of the same old commonwealth, who, marching by our national highway to the defence of our common capital, were slain at Baltimore on the 19th of April, 1861. The midnight ride of Paul Revere, famed in history and song, rousing the sleepers as he passed to hasten to defend their country, created no deeper emotion among the colonists of that day, than did our electric wires flashing far and wide the news of the assault on Sumter and the massacre at Baltimore, and thrilling with a simultaneous burst of sympathy the loyal heart of the American people. On the 4th of July, 1776, the Congress that met in the State House at Philadelphia appro
