Rebellion Record: a Diary of American Events: Documents and Narratives, Volume 4. (ed. Frank Moore), Doc. 2.-fight at Port Royal, S. C. January 1, 1862. (search)
, the rebels had six guns in the Fort, five six-inch and one twelve-pounder cannon — an old English piece. The five, undoubtedly, were the self-same guns which did not arrive on Hilton Head, when sent for by the enemy to cover a retreat from old Fort Walker. The enemy tried to get the twelve-pounder off, but no go; so they spiked it. You can count on the loss of the enemy as hundreds, while we lost only two wounded and taken prisoners. Their names are: Corporal J. Q. Adams, and private Edward Brooks, both of Company A, Eighth Michigan; M. Weidenheimer, Company E, Fiftieth Pennsylvania, wounded in right foot; Ensign Herbert, wounded in right leg by rebel shell. One man of the Forty-eighth New-York was wounded in the leg. The names of the wounded, all belonging to the Eighth Michigan, are as follows: Major A. B. Watson, Minie rifle — ball in upper part of thigh, getting along very comfortably. Privates Ira Armstrong, Company A, shot through the lower right thigh; A. B. Miller,
to bear on the boys of every village; and the lad of twelve years felt an interest in politics, while he of twenty had settled his choice of party and men, and was ready to vote understandingly. The absence of this republican pupilage in Europe makes a proper republic there almost an impossibility. May 13, 1773: The new question arose whether a clergyman, not settled, nor ministering to any parish, should be freed from taxation. After much reflection, the town voted not to abate Rev. Mr. Edward Brooks's poll-tax. March 6, 1775: All town-meetings were warned in his Majesty's name, till the one of this date, which dropped royalty as a power among us. The form soon substituted was, In the name of the government and people of Massachusetts Bay. By comparing the officers in Medford, as seen in the years 1748 and 1782, it will appear that the separation from England made not the slightest difference in the municipal organizations or modes of elections. The only difference discove
Unanimously, 39 votes. We should be pleased if the above alterations might be made in the said Constitution, but mean not that said alterations should prevent the establishment of said Constitution at the next session of said Convention. Edward Brooks, Committee. Simon Tufts, Committee. Aaron Hall, Committee. Voted unanimously to accept, by 39 votes. Voted to accept of the first Section of the second Chapter of said Constitution, styled Governor, with the foregoing amendment. Yek of our first Medford merchant, Benjamin Hall, Esq.:-- When the struggle began, in 1775, I would not have exchanged my property for that of any man in Middlesex County; and now, in 1784, I am worth nothing. The other case is that of Rev. Edward Brooks. He was librarian of Harvard College two years. On the 19th of April, 1775, he hastened towards Lexington, and did duty through the day. Lieut. Gould, taken prisoner at Concord, was committed to his custody at Medford. He was chaplain in
ve hundred dollars accordingly. After further examination of this land, the committee recommended an abandonment of the above plan; and, March 10, 1851, the town voted to build an alms-house on said land. July 19, 1852: The subject came before the town; and Messrs. George W. Porter, Robert L. Ells, Paul Curtis, John B. Hatch, and Sanford B. Perry, were chosen a committee to purchase land for a cemetery. These gentlemen examined several spots, and finally recommended one owned by Mr. Edward Brooks, situated nearly opposite the head of Purchase Street, in West Medford, and containing twelve acres. It has a varied surface of hill, valley, and plain; is well covered with young oaks and beautiful forest-trees; its soil is dry, and not liable to injury from rain ; the absence of ledges will make digging easy; and its retired and accessible position renders it peculiarly fit for such a sacred appropriation. The committee had obtained the consent of the owner to sell; and the price wa

He wrote a very legible hand, spelled his words properly, and was the only person in Medford who seemed to have any care for records, or any thought of posterity in them. Oct. 13, 1768.--Rev. Edward Brooks preached for Mr. Turell. Royalton, Worcester County, Mass., was named in honor of Colonel Royal, of Medford. 1770.--The engraving of the house in which the writer of this history was born is placed at the end of this volume, as his sir, was about fifteen; which number steadily increased till it reached its maximum, of forty-one, in 1804. 1805.--Health Committee chosen for the first time. Does this show the healthiness of the town? 1805.--The Medford omnibus, named Governor Brooks, was said to be the first vehicle of the kind built in New England. It was made by Mr. Osgood Bradley, of Worcester, Mass.; and first appeared on its route, Oct. 18, 1836. It cost $650. Eighteen persons could be seated inside, and six outs
