George H. Gordon, From Brook Farm to Cedar Mountain, Chapter 1: from Massachusetts to Virginia. (search)
Choate, S. M. Quincy, Richard Goodwin, George P. Bangs, James M. Ellis, C. P. Horton, appended to a paper dated May 9, 1861, showing the connection of those gentlemen with the regiment at that time. The names of Savage and Cary, captains; of Wheaton, adjutant; of Henry L. Higginson, Hawes, Motley, Howard and Sawyer,--do not appear in any lists or in ally letters in my possession. For a complete list of all the officers and enlisted men that were ever commissioned or enlisted in the second Massachusetts regiment of Infantry, see The Record of the Second Massachusetts Infantry, by Rev. A. H. Quint, pp. 298, 514. That Messrs. Wheaton and Motley were very early applicants in April, and that all the others were actively engaged in recruiting companies early in May, there is abundant proof. Among the first to offer aid, person, counsel, and energetic assistance was Wilder Dwight, of Brookline. It was on the eighteenth day of April, 1861, that he first made known, in lines writte

Though there were only ten or a dozen cases of measles in the hospital, two or three new ones presented themselves every day, while by day or night sounds of distressing colds and coughs were audible. No watchfulness could ward off sickness, or remove that condition which offered such temptations to disease when the right kind presented itself. My hospital tents were crowded, and thirty men sick in their tents. The commissioned officers did not escape,--Captains Savage and Mudge and Lieutenant Wheaton were seriously ill in houses. We had fires in tents; stoves were received about the first of December. I did all I could to make the men comfortable. It was the thirteenth day of December before we received information that this wretched spot was to know us no more, that we were to remove to the much healthier locality of Frederick. So our sick were sent to Washington by the canal. How over one hundred and fifty or two hundred poor fellows,--typhoid and bilious fever patients, a

l Andrews (who had received full promotion to the command of the Second Regiment) practised his men in aiming, to enable them to do better than at Winchester, where not one of the enemy could show himself with impunity at a thousand yards. My military family consisted of officers taken from the Second Massachusetts Regiment; this was due to the kindness of the Secretary of War, who promoted, at my request, to the rank of captains, Lieutenant H. B. Scott, as assistant adjutant-general, Lieutenant Wheaton, as commissary of subsistence, and Lieutenant M. M. Hawes, as quartermaster. Lieutenant Robert G. Shaw, who subsequently, as colonel of the First Massachusetts Colored Regiment, was killed at Fort Wagner, served as an aid on my staff. Although General Pope was at Washington, in the District of Columbia, we began to receive at Little Washington, through the newspapers, furious orders, intended to inflame his army with zeal,--No lines of retreat, No bases of supply, Live upon the cou
