Fifteenth Regiment.

On the 28th day of June, 1861, ten companies, which had been recruited in different towns in Worcester County, were ordered by Governor Andrew into

camp, two miles from the city of Worcester, which was named “Camp Scott," and Brigadier-General George H. Ward, and Staff, of the State Militia, was placed in command of the troops, which were designated as the “ Fifteenth Regiment Massachusetts Three Years Volun. teers," On the first of July, Major Charles Devens, Jr., of the “Third Battalion of Rifles Three Months Massachusetts Volunteers," then stationed at Fort McHenry, was offered, by the Governor, the command of the Regiment,

On account of his then position, and the arduous duties devolving upon him at the post, Major Devens did not feel justified in making immediate acceptance, or of obtaining leave of absence from his duties,

On the 20th of July, however, he returned to Worcester, when he visited Camp Scott, and was most favorably impressed by the appearance of the regiment, and the proficiency in drill attained by the troops under the admirable instructions of General Ward.

Major Devens accepted the position proffered him, and on the 26th of July received the commission of Colonel of the “Fifteenth Regiment Massachusetts Volunteers,' and General George H. Ward that of Lieutenant-Colonel. Captain John W. Kimball was commissioned as Major.

It was intended to retain this regiment in camp for the period of one month to perfect the soldiers in drill, but the battle of Bull Run and its disastrous resulis hastened the departure of all the troops in readiness, in this region, to the seat of war. On the 7th of August, an elegant flag was presented to the regiment by the ladies of Worcester, and duly recognized by Colonel Devens, in an appropriate compliment to the ladies who have liberally contributed to the comforts and necessities of the true defenders of their liberties. The regiment departed the next morning, by rail, for Washington.

No important incidents occurred en route to the Capital. On the arrival of the regiment at Baltimore, on the afternoon of the 10th, they proceeded with loaded muskets along the streets of the city, anticipating an attack from the mob, but happily no interference was had. At an early hour the following morning (Sabbath), the regiment arrived at Washington, and was quartered in appropriate buildings erected by the Government.

The 9th and 10th days of August were days of intense heat and sultriness, and many of the men were prostrated in consequence.

On Monday, August 1lth, the regiment marched during a drenching rain to their camping ground at “Meridian Hill," near the beautiful residence “Kalorama," which name was adopted for the camp where the regiment (unbrigaded) was quartered under the command of General Rufus King.

On the 25th August orders were received for marching, and the troops were in a few hours en route for Poolsville, Md., distant thirty-five miles from Washingtor.. Two nights were spent in bivouac, and on the 27th the tents of the Fifteenth were pitched upon an elevated plain in the confines of Poolsville, the site commanding a fine view of Leesburg and the mountain ranges of Virginia. The camp is distant seven miles from Conrad's Ferry, and five miles from Edwards' Ferry, on the famous Potomac river.

The encampment was named “Camp Foster,” in honor of Hon. Dwight Foster, Attorney-General of Massachusetts.

In a few days, two companies were ordered on picket duty along the banks of the Potomac, and subsequently the number of companies was increased to fire, who were posted between the two ferries. For many days frequent exchanges of shots were made between the federal and rebel pickets, resulting in no serious injury to either, but finally ceased by mutual consent. The soldiers of the opposing forces frequently indulged in friendly colloquies across the river, and in the interchange of papers and various articles of little value, as tobacco, pocket-knives, military buttons, etc.

The regiment (still unbrigaded) was placed under the immediate command of Brigadier-General Stone, whose position was entitled “ Corps of Observation."

During the evening of the 20th October, Capt. Chase Philbrick, Co. H, who with his company for some days held possession of " Harrison's Island” (situated between the two ferries, in the river), crossed to the Virginia shore, and discovered what was supposed a camp of the rebel forces. This intelligence was immediately communicated to General Stone in camp, and by his order Colonel Devens, with Quartermaster Church Howe and the five companies on picket, crossed on the same night by way of Harrison's Island to the Virginia shore, for the purpose of attacking and destroying the supposed encampment of the enemy.

Colonel Devens was followed by Colonel Lee of the Twentieth Massachusetts Regi. ment, with one hundred men, who were to remain upon the bank of the river and cover the retreat, if found necessary, while Colonel Deveus pushed forward in the recon. noissance.

Orders were at the same time sent to Lieutenant-Colonel Ward to proceed with the remaining five companies of the Fifteenth Regiment to the Island. The “long roll was heard at midnight, and Lieutenant-Colonel Ward, Major Kimball, Chaplain Scanlan, with Adjutant Hicks and Assistant-Surgeon S. F. Haven, Jr., marched with alacrity to the river, which was reached between the hours of three and four o'clock, A. M.

Át seven o'clock a skirmish ensued between Captain Philbrick's company and a company of the rebel Mississippi riflemen, when Lieutenant-Colonel Ward with his troops began to cross to the Virginia shore, followed by Captain Candy with ten cavalry men. In the course of the morning more companies of the Twentieth Regiment, and companies of the California regiments under Colonel Baker, with companies of the Tamwany Regiment New York Volunteers, and two howitzers mounted, together with one or two pieces of the Rhode Island Battery, crossed the river. A portion of the Nineteenth Regiment were stationed still later in the day upon the island.

Near the middle of the day, another skirmish took place between a portion of the Fifteenth and the rebel forces, when fifteen or twenty men of the regiment were killed or wounded. Reinforcements not arriving, the troops fell back half a mile to the place long to be remembered as “ Ball's Bluff," where Col. Lee's detachment was stationed. Near the hour of three o'clock, P. M., a general engagement of the opposing forces commenced, in which Col. Baker commanded the federal forces. The Fifteenth Regiment held the right of the line of battle. The contest was bravely maintained from two to three hours, when the loss of many of our brave heroes, and the greatly superior force of the enemy, compelled a retreat. At this juncture, the only boat remaining for the conveyance of the wounded and helpless soldiers across the river was swamped, and many went down in her. Those who preferred the last hope of escape from death or imprisonment threw aside their arms, and many their clothing, and plunged into the river. Colonel Devens and Major Kimball, with other officers, threw their swords and side arms into the river, and, followed by many of the men, swam to the island and Maryland shore, while repeated and continuous volleys were poured down upon the devoted heads of all who presented a mark for the murderous shots of the rebels. Many entered the river without divesting themselves of clothing, and many retained their guns, and escaped to the opposite shore. How many of our brave comrades lost their lives in the turbulent stream of the Potomac will forever remain unknown. Great difficulty was experienced in conveying the wounded soldiers from the island to the Maryland shore. Throughout the day the worthy Chaplain was indefatigable in his attentions to the wounded and helpless soldiers. The house upon the island used as a hospital for the wounded was fired upon by the rebels for some time after the retreat of the federal tronps. The brave Colonel Ward was seriously wounded in the left leg, and suffered amputation upon the island before his arrival at camp. Surgeon Hayward of the Twentieth, and Assistant-Surgeon Haven of the Fifteenth, were untiring in their exertions for the care of the devoted men wounded in the engagement; and at early dawn of the following morning left the island with the last of the wounded men who had been enabled to reach that shelter. Surgeou Bates of the Fifteenth was confined to his bed with sickness. On learning the departure of the troops from camp he followed them in a carriage to the place of crossing at the river, and remained there in discharge of his duties during the day, and assisted in the disposition of the wounded who were able to reach him, and in conducting the ambulances for their removal.

Of 621 men of the Fifteenth Regiment who went forth to battle, 310 were killed, wounded, and missing.

Tne remainder of the troops returned to camp and to their duties, and after the lapse of a few days two companies were again detailed for duty on picket.

The officers and men of the regiment were highly complimented by the lamented Col. Baker, for their soldierly bearing and gallant deeds on the field, and, with the other regiments engaged in the battle, received marked encomiums in a general order from their most worthy Commander-in-chief, General McClellan.

Company A, Leominster.– 15th Reg. This company was organized in 1787, as artillery, and was known as the Leominster Ar. tillery until a few years ago, when it was attached to the 9th Regiment of Infantry as Company A. Recruits were added to their number during the spring and summer of lail. The town appropriated the sum of $5,000 for the outfit of the soldiers, and to furnish ner. essary aid to their families. In addition to the above amount, Messrs. Johnson C. Burrayı, Alvah A. Burrage, and Charles H. Burrage, of Boston, presented to this, their native town, $310, with the request that it be expended for the proper outfit and equipments of this company. A public meeting of the citizens was held at the Town Hall, on the day of the departure of the company, at which addresses were made to them, and swords and equip ments were presented to Capt. Rockwood and Lieut. Wood. A liberal supply of refreshments were furnished to the soldiers. The occasion was one of grand interest.

We copy the following from the “Boston Journal :"

“ Lieut. Leonard Wood was confined to his bed in the hospital at the time his regiment left their quarters at Poolesville, previous to the battle of Ball's Bluff. He had been thus confined three days, being threatened with the typhoid fever ; but hearing the tramp of his comrades, as they were taking their departure to that terrible field of death, he questioned the attendant physician in regard to their destination, but receiving no satisfactory answer, after waiting some time, exclaimed: Doctor, I feel it my duty to go with the boys, for if there is a fight, and I am not in it. I shall never forgive myself." The doctor expostulated with him upon the folly of his taking part in an engagement in his present condition, and, for a short time, prevailed upon him to remain quiet, assuring him that he would be unable to endure the fatigue of a march, much less the excitement of a battle. About an hour elapsed, when the doctor was greatly astonished to hear his patient exclaim, as he jumped from his bed : Doctor, I can't stand it any longer, I must go. The doctor entreated, but of no avail; his patient dressed himself, girded on his sword, and ran after his regiment, which he finally succeeded in overtaking. He was in the thickest of the fight, and swam across the Potomac at its conclusion, and is now as well and hearty as any man in camp, greatly to the surprise of his physician, and the admiration of his colonel.”

Company B ( Fitchburg Fusileers), Fitchburg.- 15th Reg. Organized 1816. The members of this company expected to be called upon for the three months' service, in April, but not being summoned then, a portion on its members enlisted under a special order, dated May 31, 1851, for a term of three years. Quite a number enlisted troin the adjoining towns.

The companies left for Camp Scott, Worcester, June 28, on which occasion there was a great public demonstration, on the part of the people. The ex-members of the company (some of whom were the first members in 1816) turned out to the number of one hundred, or more, and escorted them to the depot.

The clergyman of the town presented each member with a New Testament, and a flag was presented the company, from the ladies of Fitchburg.
