That I received orders to begin the crossing. General Devens's brigade held the post of honor and began the movement, using both bridges. One of the commanders of the leading regiments, more patriotic than wise, had placed his band at the head of the column, and it was ordered to begin playing as it rreckless riding of a wild Irishman on the staff, an order reached the colonel, and the music was stopped before any harm was done. the troops were rapidly thrown across, when an order came to recross all but one brigade. This was done and General Devens's brigade was left to keep the bridge-head. The cause of this was that the upper bridges opposite the town, intended for the use of the right wing, had not yet been finished. Sharp-shooters in the brick houses near the river had interfered
