he officers of the new company built a log hut of generous dimensions, with a bed built of poles covering about all the available ground space. It left only enough room to get in and out to feed the fire, which was left burning most of the time in the great fire place. In this cabin, old friends lounged on the bed, played cards, studied and discussed the Tactics and Regulations, jawed and spat in the fire. Lieut. Col. Devereux and others of the old company were frequent visitors. On December 20 recruits to the number of 117 arrived among them Billy Hill, another Salem Zouave, who came out as Sergeant in Co. F. Another reunion was immediately held. The duties of the regiment in its new camp, were of a nature to preclude the possibility of drill. It had 13 miles of the Potomac, from Great Falls to Seneca Falls to picket, three defensive blockhouses to build, 48 feet each way, of the shape of a Greek cross, four feet thick, twelve feet high, with loopholes for infantry arms,

. Edward P. Bishop was promoted to First Lieutenant, and First Sergeant Lysander Hume was advanced to Second Lieutenant. First Lieut. Henry A. Hale of Co. H. was transferred to Co. I, while bandmaster John A. Spofford, with musicians R. W. Stevens, W. C. M. Howe, E. F. Spofford and J. M. Hine resigned and were discharged. Lewis Rimback, of Boston, was appointed as the new bandmaster. Instead of staying all winter in Camp Benton as had been expected, the regiment was ordered, on December 4, 1861, to Seneca, at a place called Muddy Branch, some miles nearer Washington, where it relieved some of the command of Gen. Banks, whose division was sent to Frederick. Camp Benton, with its well determined lines, its spacious streets, curiously constructed ovens and underground furnaces, its nicely thatched stables and log houses, was left as a monument to the versatile skill, the military genius, ingenuity and perseverence of the men of Massachusetts. In moving to Muddy Branch, the

o remedy this, boards were fastened on the top and shifted with the wind. The regiment had left Lynnfield with much less than its full quota, and the enlisted men of the ten companies were now consolidated into nine, those in Company H being distributed among the others. A new company was then authorized to be raised in Essex county by Charles U. Devereux, the former First Sergeant of the Salem Zouaves and brother of Lieut. Col. Devereux. This company arrived at Muddy Branch on December 13, 1861, bringing with it 125 men. Its complement was but 101, and all over this number were sent to the other companies as recruits. This brought the membership of the regiment up to 939 men. In the new company were many members of the Salem Zouaves who had served through the Three Months Campaign. Beside Capt. Devereux were First Lieutenant Albert Thorndike, First Sergt. Wm. R. Driver, Sergeants Albert C. Douglas, George B. Symonds and Samuel H. Smith and Corp. A. Frank Hutchings. Thi

That was All Right. In about two weeks this company was ordered to join the regiment at Camp Lander, near Muddy Branch. Their first work was the procuring of logs from the camps that had just been abandoned by Gen. Banks' Division. The men built these up for about three feet from the ground, stopping the the cracks between them with small sticks and mud. The soil contained much clay and made good mortar. On the top of the logs the tent was made fast and fire

Woe to the officer or man who, with out authority broke one of the little seals. The Regulations provided for summary punishment in such a case, but this never occurred in the Nineteenth Massachusetts. One of the countersigns which has been preserved reads, Kansas, the parole Missouri. The day challenge is 22, the reply 112, made by motions of the flag. The night challenge is Red-White, the reply being White. ( This signal, not being used, became void, and is preserved by Captain Reynolds among his war souvenirs.) These colors designated by the outer wrapper on the signal cartridge, correspond with the instructions in the little folded cocked hat. Nearly all of these were countersigned Official, John C.
