John G. B. Adams, Reminiscences of the Nineteenth Massachusetts Regiment, Chapter 11: battles at Totopotomoy Creek and cold Harbor. (search)
d when it came the rebels were ready and waiting for us, yet over the field we went. Men were mowed down by hundreds. Major Dunn, who now commanded the regiment, was struck by a bullet and fell, but rallied again. The colors of the regiment were s down, but Mike Scannell picked them up and carried them forward. Mike always had an eye to business. When we halted Major Dunn said, Mike, keep the colors. Not as a corporal, said Mike; too many corporals have been killed already carrying colorsng the right and I the left wing. At noon the officers withdrew a little to the rear for dinner, and in conversation Major Dunn said, I fell asleep a little while ago, and had a queer dream. We were lying just as we are here, and the rebels came e so thick we could not see through them, but knowing something was up, I went to the right of the line and reported to Major Dunn. Returning to my place, I met Billy Smith of Company F, who said, Come with me; if you go farther you are sure to be c

r would come up and we would go over the same ground. After we had gone through this performance four or five times we began to catch on, and would show when questioned that we were not so very fresh.

The officers of our regiment became divided here. Major Dunn was in one part of the stockade, Captain Hume and Adjutant Curtis with some of the 71st and 72d Pennsylvania in another. Lieutenant Chubbuck found a friend from Quincy, Mass., and went with him; Lieutenant Osborne and I joined Captain McHugh of the 69th Pennsylvania. Inside the stockade were two old buildings, each filled with prisoners. Many had dug holes under them, and were sheltered in that way, but the last two or three hundred had no shelter. Around the place was a low fence,

ison swung open, the crowd gathered, expecting to see fresh fish, but instead saw four ragged, dirty, old tramps. We were received with a grand hurrah, and they gathered around to hear our story. We had been out just four weeks, and had travelled more than three hundred miles. While we were much disappointed we were not discouraged. Our trip had done us good; we had gained in flesh, had thrown off the stagnation of prison life and were ready to try again. We found many changes inside. Major Dunn and Captain Hume had received special exchange; others had escaped, and the squads were broken. We were assigned to squad fifteen, composed of men who had escaped, and we were a fine collection of innocents. Before we escaped from Camp Sorghum an order had been issued by the rebel commander that if any more escaped they would put us in a pen, and the removal to Asylum Prison was the result. There were about two acres enclosed. On three sides were brick walks; on the fourth a high b
