Chapter 36: return of the regiment to Massachusetts. Back again to the front. On February 3 the order to prepare for the journey home was received and on the following day, when they broke camp it was a jolly occasion for every one. The two miles between the camp and the depot was quickly covered and no one fell out. Those of the Nineteenth regiment who did not or could not re-enlist were turned over to the Twentieth Massachusetts for duty during the absence of the regiment. At the depot the usual delay incident to army railroading occurred, but finally the train was ready and the regiment started. Box cars were furnished for the men and they let themselves out,—dancing, singing and shouting until they were hoarse. The officers who returned with the regiment to Boston were: Colonel Devereux. Lieut. Col. Wass. Major Edmund Rice. Acting Adjt. William M. Curtis. Quartermaster Thos. F. Winthrop. Surgeon J. F. Dyer. Asst. Surgeon C. P. Pratt. Capt. Moncena Dunn. Ca
