Company C (Charlestown Artillery), Charlestown.- 5th Reg. The company is known as the Charlestown Artillery, and was formerly Co. D, 1st Reg. of Artillery ; but, several years ago, was changed, with several other companies, into Infantry, and has since been known as Co. D, 5th Regt. Infantry M. V. M. While the 5th Regiment was in Washington, in May last, the companies were re-lettered, and the Charlestown Artillery became Co. C; but, since the return of the regiment, the old companies have received their former letters. The Charlestown Artillery was organized May 22, 1780, and was the first company to celebrate the anniversary of the Battle of Bunker Hill, June 17, 1786. Sometime in 1830, the company disbanded, but was re-organized Nov. 13, 1831, and has continued to prosper ever since.

William R. Swan, Captain of the Charlestown Artillery, received orders to assemble his command at their armory, at 12 o'clock, M., Wednesday, April 17, and by noon of the next day they were ready to march. But orders came for the company to hold themselves in readiness, at their armory, to march at any moment. On Friday, April 19, the Fifth Regi. ment was ordered to rendezvous at Faneuil Hall; and the Artillery, in company with the City Guards, of Charlestown, marched over to Boston to the hall, where they remained until the regiment departed for Washington, at 5 o'clock Sunday morning, April 21. This company, on 1caving Charlestown, had abundant evidence of the affection and high esteem with which their fellow-citizens regard them; and, on their return from the war, another demonstration was made in honor of their patriotic devotion. (See notice on page 189, under Company K.]

In just three months from the day they left Boston, July 21, the Fifth Regiment, numbering between 700 and 800 fighting men, among whom were the Charlestown Artillery, left Centreville, Va., for Bull Run.” On that day the Charlestown Artillery, Co. C, was ordered, with the regiment, to the brow of the eminence directly in front of the main battery of the enemy, and were there exposed to a galling fire from the battery for nearly thirty-five minutes, and but for the orders and coolness of Col. Lawrence, who commanded the company to fall flat on their faces, they would have

been most terribly cut up by the shower of shot and shell that was poured upon them. Returning home at the expiration of their term of service, July 30, 1801, they were warmly welcomed, the people turning out en masse to receive them..

Company D (Haverhill Light Infantry), Haverhill.— 5th Reg. Organized 1853. Known as Company G in the 7th Regiment; detailed from it April 19th. and annexed to the 5th. Their orders were received at noon, April 19, 1861, and, as they had been drilling daily, preparatory to the call, they were ready to rush to the rescue of Washington and their country. The reception of the order fired'the town with enthusiasm, and the citizens turned out en masse; a meeting was held, at which speeches were made ; a purse and a flag were presented ; also a Testament to each member of the company. The people then escorted them to the railroad station, and they left the same day at 5, P.M. Their return to Haverhill, in July, was the occasion for a similar demonstration as that which was given them at their departure in April. A large number of this company soon after re-enlisted. The town and the citizens contributed about $2,400 in cash, clothing, and other articles for the company.

Company E (Lawrence Light Guard), Medford.-5th Reg. Organized Feb. 12, 1851. The call for this gallant corps to aid in the defence of the Union met å hearty response from all its members, and the inhabitants of Medford exhibited the deepest interest in their behalf and the glorious cause. Upon their leaving home, April 19, an impressive prayer was offered by Rev. Mr. Ames, in the Square, and several hundred citizens escorted them to Boston. At an enthusiastic meeting of the cltizens, over six thousand dollars were quickly raised for the purpose of providing the soldiers with a new uniform, and for the relief of their families during their absence.

On the return of the 5th Regiment to Boston, July 30, 1861, the company was preceded home by an escort of the citizens of Medford ; and, as they entered the town, the bells were rung, salutes fired, and music discoursed its welcome eloquently. At the Town Hall, an eloquent and patriotic speech of welcome was made by Thomas $. Harlow, Esq., and responded to by Capt. Hutchins. Loud cheers were given, and many a hearty greeting exchanged. The citizens of Medford, proud of their well-drilled corps, had for years given it their hearty support, and when it had been tried and found not wanting, they viewed with satisfactory pride their honorable return from the war.

Company F (Wardwell Tigers), Boston.- 5th Reg. Capt. David K. Wardwell received permission from the Governor, April 16, 1861, to raise a company for the three months' service. He very soon reported his company ready for active duty. Through the liberality of Oliver Stevens, Esq., they were at once furnished with a uniform. The city of Boston also furnished them with a fatigue uniform and rubber blankets. When the 5th Regiment was nearly ready to leave for the seat of war, it was decided to add to their numbers this company, then known as the “Boston Volunteers.”

Company G ( Concord Artillery), Concord.- 5th Reg. Was Company A, Concord Artillery. The letter was changed while at Washington, but has always been known as Company A, even when it belonged to the First Regiment of Artillery. The company was incorporated, on petition of Charles Hammond and others, Feb. 28, 1804, and held their first public parade on the 4th of July following. The charter says, -"Whereas, Major John Buttrick and Capt. Isaac Davis, with a party of armed ycomanry, did, on the birth-day of our Revolution, attack and defeat a superior number of

* Re-enlisted.

the invaders of our country, who were most advantageously posted at the North Bridge of Concord, it is ordered that the prayer of the petition be granted, and that two brass fieldpieces, with proper apparatus, be provided for said company, with suitable engravings, to commemorate and render honor to the action which led to the victory of the day, and to perpetuate the names of the gallant Buttrick and Hosmer, and also to animate, in future, the ardor and bravery of the defenders of our country.” In the war of 1812, the artillery were ordered to South Boston, where they remained in camp three months. They marchert to Boston with the Concord Light Infantry and the Acton Biues, “and, as they passed through Boston," as an observer said, "they were cheered through the town, and they crossed over to South Boston on scows." (South Boston Bridge then was not in existence.)

Orders were received long before light, on the 19th of April, 1861, to report on BostonCommon, and at noon of that day, the anniversary of the Battle of Concord, they left Concord,

under the command of Capt. Geo. L. Prescott. The whole people turned out to witness their departure, and they were addressed by Judge Hoar, and prayers were offered for their well-being and safe return. They left Boston on the 21st, and sailed the next morning from New York for Annapolis, and from thence marched to Washington, through a country filled with disloyalists. The company was in the Battle of Bull Run, where five of them were taken prisoners. On their return to Concord, the inhabitants turned out en masse, and gave them a most cordial reception. The company has always taken a high stand as a well-drilled company, and the most respectable citizens of the town have been members, and have always given the company their influence and assistance.

Company H (Salem City Guards), Salem.- 5th Reg. The Salem City Guards was organized Nov. 14, 1816. This company belongs to the 7th Regiment of the Mass. Volunteer Militia. A dispatch was received from Col. Lawrence, by telegraph, in the forenoon of the 19th of April, to see if they would like to be attached to the 5th Regiment, and if so, how many they could muster. An answer was immediately returned that they were ready to go, and would bring at least forty-five men. An order came at 1, P.M., for the company to report themselves on Boston Common at 4, P.M.;

but, for some cause, they were unable to leave Salem until the next day - Saturday, the 20th, at 9, A.M. - when they left, with seventy-four men and officers, in company with the Salem Mechanic Light Infantry, and on arriving in Boston, went immediately to Faneuil Hall.

On their return from Washington, they arrived in Salem, in company with the Salem Mechanic Light Infantry, on the 31st of July, at about 10 o'clock, A.M. A salute was fired, the bells were rung, and they marched through the principal streets, escorted by the past members of each company, the Salem Divisionary Corps Independent Cadets, and the drill clubs of the city. When they arrived in front of the City Hall, they were welcomed home by the mayor, in behalf of the citizens, after which they partook of a substantial dinner at řechanic Hall.

April 20, 1861, the company left their armory, under an escort of nearly a thousand citizens, with a band of music, and marched to Boston, where they arrived about noon, and were quartered with their regiment in Faneuil Hall. Before leaving Somerville, a meeting was held by the citizens to aid the families of the company, and over four thousand dollars obtained, and on their leaving, a prayer was offered, and speeches made, and a Testament presented to every member of the company.

July 30, 1861, the company, having served its term, returned to Somerville, and their townsmen testified their appreciation of their patriotism and bravery by joining in large numbers to do escort duty, and giving the returned soldiers a warm welcome and a substantial collation. A bouquet was presented to each member of the company by the ladies ; a prayer was offered by the Rev. G. G. Fairbanks, after which a speech of welcome was made by Joseph B. Proctor, Esq., and responded to by Capt. Brastow. The Home Guards and the firemen joined in the reception, and a salute of one hundred guns was fired on the occasion.
