would have drunk it even to the very dregs. It was on the twenty-first day of October that an order, issuing from General Banks, to hold ourselves in readiness, with five days rations, cooked and uncooked, and to report for orders to Brigadier-General Hamilton commanding the Second Brigade, was followed within a short time by a note from that officer to move at once without baggage, leaving a guard to come on with tents, baggage, rations, etc. You will take the lead; the other regiments will tter to me that Stone was in Leesburg, with very little fighting. At five o'clock P. M., news of Colonel Baker's death was conveyed to General Stone; the news of the disaster soon followed. Instructions delivered on the road from Stone met General Hamilton: these were, to repair to Conrad's Ferry, and there dispose of his force so as to protect Harrison's Island.

ferred to a more active field. A reply to this letter, received after Jackson had driven our regiment out of the valley, declared that the exigencies of the service required thewriters to remain at Strasburg (within the valley). Major Scott, of Colonel Murphy's Twenty-ninth Pennsylvania Regiment, suppressed his perturbed spirits and spent much of his pay in presents as testimonials to officers who met his approbation. Not content with having given superb swords to Generals Banks and Hamilton and to Major Copeland, the former's assistant adjutant-general, he now bent his energies towards a gift for the colonel of the Second Massachusetts, his then brigade commander; which, alas! never came to fruition, for Jackson soon made us think of other things.
