Overview

Excerpt from Reminiscences of Military Service in the Forty-Third Regiment, Massachusetts Infantry, During the Great Civil War, 1862-63

All this would have been changed for the worse, if Burnside's fleet had waited until the spring of 1865. It is with some degree of satisfaction, then, that I look back to the eight months of the darkest period of the war, during which the security of this vital point depended very largely upon the militia of Massachusetts.

My thanks are specially due to Col. Whiton, Major Lane, and Lieut. Turner, our quartermaster, for counsel and assistance. Nor can I omit, in this connection, our recently deceased comrade, Chaplain Manning, whose interest was very marked. It will be seen that I have quoted freely from his letters to The Boston Journal, over the signature of Old South, of which church he was the pastor. The same acknowledgments should be made to Capt. Hanover and Orderly Edmunds, with other comrades of the company.
