Chapter 4: our first campaign.--battle of Fair Oaks. About the middle of March we broke camp and took up our line of march for our first campaign. We bade good-by to our tents, which had sheltered us since we left Massachusetts, and sent them to Washington with our extra personal baggage, where I expect they are to-day, as we never received them again. We marched to the river, then up the towpath of the canal to Harper's Ferry, forded the Potomac at Point of Rocks, and for the first tim
mpton, where we found the Army of the Potomac awaiting the arrival of our division.
We encamped here about two weeks, quartered in Sibley tents.

Early in April the grand Army of the Potomac moved towards Yorktown.
It was a grand army, every regiment having its full quota.
The experience of the previous months had made them reliable as soldiers.
