Some of the men struck up: Nineteenth regiment is marching on, Nineteenth regiment is marching on, Glory, Glory, Hallelujah— Glory, Glory, Hallelujah, As Hinks goes marching on. The regiment left the City Hall Park, marched up Broadway, countermarched at the Metropolitan hotel, passed through Canal to Vestry Street, to Pier 39, North River, and went on board the Ferry boat John Potter, of the Camden and Amboy Line, taking the cars at Perth Amboy for Washington. On the march through the streets of New York City, cheers were given for the Union, The Commonwealth, The Hub of the Universe and Our New York Friends. The journey to Baltimore was one continuous ovation. Not much sleep was had, as the regiment was met at every station and all along the line with great enthusiasm, crowds cheering, flags flying, and, at many places, the firing of cannon.

ng after you get used to it. During the afternoon the regiment marched down Pennsylvania Avenue for three miles to Meridian Hill, where it established camp, and here Colonel Hinks instituted the rigid system of instruction which was observed in the regiment as long as he retained command of it. Meridian Hill was well wooded and commanded a fine view of the surrounding country, with the Potomac but a mile and a half distant. About the first thing that happened to the regiment after it reached Meridian Hill was the taking by the government of its nicely painted wagons and the horses, and the issuance in their place of the conventional army wagons, drawn by six mules, giving ten wagons, only, to the regiment and one additional for headquarters, in place of the sixteen which had been brought from Lynnfield. After the regiment reached Meridian Hill, the fact that some of its officers and men had served in the Three Month's Regiments previously was found to be of great advantage

M. on August 29, was met by a delegation of the Sons of Massachusetts and marched in double files to the barracks in City Hall Park, where dinner was served, it having been prepared by Assistant Quartermaster Frank E. Howe, of Nn in the northern room of the barracks, which were handsomely decorated,—the following inscription appearing at the end of the great room: New York Seventh and Massachusetts Sixth and Eighth,—brothers in arms who saved our Nation's Capital.

. They felt jolly and were bound to make the most of the picnic. Awkward, helpless in all these small prosaic arts by which the veteran ekes out the scant comforts of a soldier's life, like all new regiments, the men of the Nineteenth were well fitted to excite a smile as they trod the streets on their way to the sacred soil. From the Common they marched, at 7.30 P. M., to the Old Colony depot, accompanied by the band of the Seventeenth Massachusetts Regiment, taking the train and the Fall River Line boat for New York. As the steamer rounded into the North River on the morning of August 29, it was hailed with cheers, the waving of flags and firing of guns. As it approached a United States warship, the drums were heard to beat to quarters, and, as the steamer passed abreast of her, the sailors manned the yards, swinging their caps and gave three cheers and a tiger. They then disappeared as suddenly as they had sprung up, the event making a very pleasing impression upon the spe

After the regiment reached Meridian Hill, the fact that some of its officers and men had served in the Three Month's Regiments previously was found to be of great advantage, for they already had made many acquaintances among the military officials at the Capitol and throughout the District. Colonel Hinks and Lieutenant Colonel Devereux were both wellknown. The Nineteenth's officers received much more attention from the officers of other organizations because of their wide acquaintanc

erybody was cheering. Hasty farewells were said, and the train slowly started over the South Reading Branch of the Eastern railroad. The farmhouses along the route were alive with people who shouted and waved handkerchiefs in farewell to the troops. The station at Salem was filled with the friends and relatives of the men; a salute was fired from a small cannon and the officers were presented with bouquets. There was no time for a special demonstration, however, and the train went on to Lynn, the home of Colonel Hinks, en route to Boston, where a great crowd greeted it. The regimental wagon train then was larger than that of an army corps in active service later. Each company had a four-horse wagon, headquarters two, quartermaster four. There were in all sixteen wagons, painted the regulation blue, beside the ambulances. Boston was reached at 5.15 o'clock and an immense crowd welcomed the regiment at the station.
