His mother, Sarah Blake Sturgis, imparted to her only son the rare and high traits of mind and heart she possessed. He was born Oct. 10, 1837, in Boston, was carefully educated at home and abroad in his earlier years, and admitted to Harvard College in August, 1856, but discontinued his course there in his third year. After a short business career, on April 19, 1861, he marched with his regiment, the Seventh New York National Guard, to the relief of Washington. He applied for and received a commission as second lieutenant in the Second Massachusetts Infantry; and after serving with his company and on the staff of Gen. George H. Gordon, he was promoted to a captaincy. Colonel Shaw was of medium height, with light hair and fair complexion, of pleasing aspect and composed in his manners. His bearing was graceful, as became a soldier and gentleman.

The fact of freedom was to be settled by the sworn statement of the soldier, and entered against the man's name on he administered the following:— You do solemnly swear that you owed no man unrequited labor on or before the 19th day of April, 1861. So help you God. This form had been the subject of much thought, and was known in the regiment as the Quaker Oath. Some of our men were held as slaves April 19, 1861, but they took the oath as freemen, by God's higher law, if not by their country's. A more pitiful story of broken faith, with attendant want and misery upon dependent ones, than this depr

This company was accepted, and formed part of the Ninth Regiment, of which Captain Peard was commissioned major. He died in the service. The following letter is from one of the most noble and highly cultivated men whom Massachusetts sent to the war, and who sacrificed his life for the cause:— monument Square, Charlestown, April 19, 1861. Adjutant-General Schouler,—We are at that point where every man who can devote himself to his country's service should come forward. I beg that you would put on file this my application for any position in the medical service of the Commonwealth in which I could be useful. I am aware of the law under which surgeons are appointed, and of course understand that you have no direct control of this matter. But there may be exigencies from deaths, resignations, unusual demands, or unfo

The yeomanry who in 1775, on Lexington Common, and on the banks of Concord River first made that day immortal in our annals, have found their lineal representatives in the historic regiment, which, on the 19th of April, 1861, in the streets of Baltimore, baptized our flag anew in heroic blood, when Massachusetts marched once more in the sacred cause of liberty and the rights of mankind. Before passing from the consideration of this remarkable address, we woLowell, and was attached to Major-General Butler's division, designed to attack New Orleans. Many of the officers and men of this regiment belonged to the Sixth Regiment in the three months service, which was attacked in Baltimore, on the 19th of April, 1861. The Twenty-sixth left Boston in the transport steamer Constitution, on the 21st day of November, 1861, for Ship Island, Mississippi. This was the first loyal volunteer regiment that reached the Department of the Gulf. Its field officer

A brief sketch of its origin and subsequent growth deserves a place in this volume, and may as well be given now as hereafter. When our Sixth Regiment reached Washington, April 19, 1861, it was ordered to the Capitol, and quartered in the Senate wing. No provision had been made for the wounded; but by advice of Major McDowell, U. S. A., they were taken in carriages by the Massachusetts residents, who met the regiment at the
that day for New York, under the command of Colonel Henry Walker. From New York it went by transport to New Orleans. The Fifth Regiment, which had also served in the three months campaign, was recruited for nine months service at Camp Lander, at Wenham. It sailed from Boston in transports, under command of Colonel George H. Peirson, for Newbern, N. C., with orders to report for duty to Major-General Foster. The Sixth Regiment, the same which had fought its way through Baltimore, April 19, 1861, was recruited and organized for the nine months service at Camp Henry Wilson, at Lowell. It was the determination of the Governor to have the Sixth Regiment the first to leave the State for the nine months service. It received orders to report at Washington, and left Massachusetts under command of Colonel Albert S. Follansbee about Sept. 1. It remained in Washington until the 13th, when it was ordered to Suffolk, Va. The Eighth Regiment served with distinction in the three months

The Legislature had also been invited to attend the ceremonies. On the 15th, the Governor telegraphed to the Mayor of Lowell:— This national calamity must postpone our Lowell ceremonies, which at present I regard impossible. I prur visit to the front in the autumn of 1864, published in a preceding chapter. On the 17th of June, the monument erected in the city of Lowell to commemorate the stirring events which transpired in the city of Baltimore on the memorable 19th of April, 1861, and in honor of the first martyrs in the Rebellion, who fell in that city, was inaugurated. The occasion was one of great interest. The Governor and staff, the heads of the different State departments, the Executive Council, the members

Their passage through Baltimore, on the 19th of April, 1861, is a remarkable point in our national history. The next day about thirty of the sick and wounded were placed in the Washington Infirmary, where the Judiciary Square Hospital now stands. Miss Barton proceeded promptly to the spot to ascer of the first shot fired by rebellion.

Increase Sumner presented and read a preamble and resolutions, which were unanimously adopted. The preamble set forth the fact of the Rebellion, one of the results of which has been the shedding of Massachusetts blood, thereby consecrating the 19th of April, 1861, with the immortal memories of April 19th, 1775. The first resolution sets forth: 1st, That the crisis demands the exertion of every American patriot to arrest the progress of treason and rebellion. 2d, We pledge, in the spirit of loyalty, our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor, in maintaining the authority of the Government; that we go for upholding and sustaining the flag of our Union for ever, and will protect it against insults and indignities from foes without, and from t
