ront of and near the rebel fort, crossed by a bridge to the right and another to the left, which were the only means by which the fort could be approached. Lieutenant Hume, of Company K, exclaimed, I'll bet the works have been evacuated, and asked and received permission to cross and enter them to ascertain whether anyone was at When he had almost reached them, an officer of the Brigade staff started off by the shorter road to the left, entering the works there at the same time that Lieutenant Hume did on the right. The latter, finding that no one was in the works, stood on the parapets that for a month had awed McClellan's Army and motioned for the Brigade to Come on. The Nineteenth Massachusetts moved forward at double-quick over the route taken by Lieutenant Hume, while the other regiments entered the fort by the left, each raising its flag. The fort and the works around it were supposed to be very strong, with bomb-proof traverses and subterranean passages in which the men
he other, each turn of the wheel threatening to throw everything topsy turvy. Lieutenant Prime of Company C, who had long been ill, succumbed to the tremendous strain and was obliged to let the Company march away from him. He kept moving on, but gradually lost ground. He and Lieutenant Bachelder had become fast friends,—like brothers,— and tears stood in the latter's eyes as he turned to see his comrade being left behind. (Lieutenant Prime rejoined the regiment at Harrison's Landing.) Lieutenant Hume was also compelled to drop out and was left behind, being captured by the pursuing enemy. The rays of the sun fell full upon the men as they marched down the railroad track, with not a breath of air stirring. The sick and wounded had been brought along with much difficulty. Many knapsacks and overcoats,—even haversacks containing their rations,—were thrown away as constituting too heavy a load. Capt. Ansel D. Wass was affected by the great heat and some of the officers and men we

ours the sun came out and dried them off. Here, again, they feasted on shell fish. During Saturday and Sunday the regiment lay in camp and from its position the masts of the sunken Cumberland could be seen in the roadstead. At this point Lieut. Hume, of Company K, who had returned from Richmond as an exchanged prisoner, made his appearance at the regimental camp and received a hearty greeting. Col. Hinks first assigned him into Company B, but as he desired to be with his comrades of Company K it was made possible by placing Second Lieut. Newcomb, who had been given his (Hume's) position, in Company C. Newcomb found there in Capt. Bachelder, Harvard 1859, a kindred spirit and many were the good times they had in the evenings together during the brief time before Antietam. Col. Hinks was here placed again in command of the Brigade and Lieut. Col. Devereux took command of the regiment. The roster shows that First Lieut. James H. Rice of Company F, Capt. Charles U. Devereux,

Hume in command of the company. Hume had been promoted from Second to First Lieutenant, vice James H. Rice, promoted. In company K also, First Sergeant CHume had been promoted from Second to First Lieutenant, vice James H. Rice, promoted. In company K also, First Sergeant Charles H. Wellock had been advanced to Second Lieutenant, vice Hill, promoted. In Company H, Second Lieut. Frederick F. Crofts had been dropped from the rolls by Gen. Order 162, A. of P., Oct. 7, 1862, for being absent for three months without explaining the cause. The promotions were richly deserved and were for gallantry and good conduct. Hume, Briggs and Newcomb had thus each been promoted a second time for gallantry and Sergeants Adams, Driver, Hill, Wellock, Claffey, Chubbuck and Tilton were advanced for like reasons. Sergeants Charles P. Abbott and William Stone were recommended for promotion for gallantry. Private Thomas F. Winthrop of Co

movements of the Johnnies. The enemy had a battery of three pieces directly in front of the position of the Nineteenth, but did not dare to load one of them because of the Andrew Sharpshooters who popped over any one who attempted it. The Nineteenth was in the front line of battle and the men were obliged to lie very low on account of the rebel sharpshooters, who, during the day, killed two men of the regiment. While at this point Corporal Hodgkins, of Co. K, was sent to the rear by Captain Hume, on a perilous trip with a message. Buckling his belt tightly about him, he leaped from the trench and ran for the next line of works, while a shower of leaden hail from the enemy fell about him. After resting a while, he ran to the next line, receiving another shower of bullets. After making several such runs, he reached the woods, delivered the message and returned to the trench under a heavy fire from the rebels, without a scratch. For this and other soldierly conduct he was promo
