rst of the Massachusetts colonels to fall,—with Capt. J. F. Dunning of Boston and Lieut. T. F. Salter of Haverhill of the 22d and Lieut. C. C. E. Mortimer of the 3d Battery. Every regiment suffered, but the 22d Massachusetts most of all. (General Martindale's report, Official War Records, XI (2), 291 ) The reports of Maj. W. S. Tilton and Capt. W. S. Sampson are in the same volume, pp. 300-306. More bayonet wounds are said to have been inflicted in the battle of Gaines's Mill than in any other command of this regiment from ill-health after the contest at Fredericksburg, and Col. F. W. Palfrey and Colonel Macy were successively put in his place. The 18th and 23d Mass. infantries were highly complimented at Fredericksburg by Major-General Martindale; In General Butterfield's report he says, Captain [L. N.] Tucker, 18th Mass. Volunteers, Acting A. D. C., was severely wounded in the arm while in the discharge of his duties, and deserves special mention for his services. (Official

Infantry was recruited in July and August, 1861, and on August 26 left the State as a battalion of eight companies, in command of Col. (afterwards brigadier general) James Barnes, a graduate of West Point. The two additional companies necessary to complete the regiment joined the command in September and November, 1861. The regiment, forming part of Martindale's Brigade, Porter's Division, 3d Corps, Army of the Potomac, was stationed for a time near Fort Corcoran, and September 26 was ordered to Hall's Hill, where it remained until the spring of 1862. In March, 1862, it moved to the Peninsula, and April 5 took part in the assault at Yorktown and was active during the siege; after the surrender the regiment moved by the way of West Point and White House to Gaines's Mill, and, arriving May 26, went into camp.

Hinks on the left, and Martindale on the right, followed up the success, the colored troops carrying four of the redoubts with ts of the Sixth Corps, and crossed the Appomattox to rejoin Butler's force at Bermuda Hundred. Martindale's division of his command, however, could not be withdrawn to advantage, and so continued to hoss of life. About noon an unsuccessful assault was made by Gibbon's division, Second Corps. Martindale's advance was successful in occupying the enemy's skirmish line and making some prisoners. Ge

ooth and delicate fairness almost feminine, but a spirit fit for battle glancing from clear blue eyes, he might well stand as the typical young soldier of the North. Six days after receiving his commission, Lieutenant Russell, with his regiment, left camp at Readville for Washington. After remaining encamped in Washington two days, on the 3d of September they were ordered to cross the Potomac and report for duty to General Fitz-John Porter. Upon doing so they were assigned to Brigadier-General Martindale, who commanded the first brigade of General Porter's division, and was stationed near Fort Corcoran. Here they were employed in drilling, and working on intrenchments thrown up for the protection of the capital, until September 26th, when the whole army made an advance which brought the Eighteenth Regiment to a position at Hall's Hill. On the 10th of March the regiment left Hall's Hill to take part in the siege of Yorktown and the movement upon Richmond. They had no sooner arr

This attack fell on Martindale's Second Maine regiment, Forty-fourth New York, some detachments of the Ninth and Twenty-second Massachusetts and of thl supporting a section of Martin's battery. The Federal line was broken and the gunners driven from their pieces.

relieved from command. It is an incident sustaining the charge that spurious money was used by the Federal army; that on the 10th, Mr. C. A. Dana, secretary of war, telegraphed for $5,000,000 in Confederate money for use of General Grant in a cavalry expedition, on which he proposed to pay for everything taken. Was the money genuine? On the 18th, General Meade advanced his forces and made a general assault. Mr. Dana telegraphed to Washington that Birney with nine brigades bad failed; Martindale made an attempt to advance and failed; at 7 p. m., Wilcox of the Ninth corps, and Warren's corps again assaulted, but in vain. He lost in three days 9,500 men killed and wounded. Under orders of General Grant no more assaults were to be made. On the 30th of June, Col. R. H. Keeble, Seventeenth and Twenty-third Tennessee, was killed, and Col. John S. Fulton, Forty-fourth Tennessee, commanding Johnson's brigade, was mortally wounded.

r. Kinney's, on the direct road to Richmond, a squad of Federals stepped into the Taliaferro Mill road, in front of the command. The colonel suspecting an ambush, halted his regiment, faced it by the rear rank, and wheeled it to the right into the thicket. It handsomely cleaned the thicket of the enemy. On reaching the road in front of Dr. Kinney's it charged with rebel yells the 25th New York Regiment, concealed in Kinney's field of standing wheat, and almost annihilated it in front of Martindale's Brigade, drawn up in line of battle and strongly supported by artillery. It was not known then that the regiment had been cut off by an overwhelming force of infantry, artillery and cavalry, under General Fitz John Porter. It was withdrawn and reformed in the open field on the Hanover Courthouse side of Kinney's dwelling. Potts' artillery was also ordered into position, and never were two guns served more handsomely. The unequal contest was kept up for over four hours, inflicting gre
