Sixteenth Regiment.

Was formed July 20, 1861, and ordered into Camp Cameron, in North Cambridge, where it was mustered, by companies, into the United States service, by Capt. J. C. Amory, of the Seventh Infantry, United States Army.

The regiment remained at that camp until Aug 17, when it was ordered to the seat of war. At eight o'clock in the morning, of the day of their departure, the troops were drawn up in line on the parade ground, and their arms and equipments carefully inspected, after which they left the camp shortly before noon, in heavy marching order. Each soldier had forty rounds of cartridges in his cartridge-box, and two days' rations in his haversack; altogether they took seven days' cooked rations and 60,000 cartridges. The Brigade Band accompanied the regiment on the route, and alternated with the band of the regiment. There were crowded streets to greet them in Boston and Cambridge. Three o'clock was the hour fixed for their departure, and with a punctuality that augured well for the future, they were at the Old Colony station at the appointed time. The baggage train, escorted by Company F, came into town in the forenoon, and was loaded upon the cars. Soon after three o'clock, the train of twenty-one cars started, leaving Boston and home behind, and conveyed them to Fall River, where they embarked on board the steamer.

The following extract is taken from a statement made by one of the officers of this regiment :

"No accident happened to mar the pleasure of the journey from Boston, and the regiment arrived safely at Baltimore, Maryland, on the 19th of August, just four months from that memorable day when the Massachusetts Sixth met with such hostile demonstrations while marching through the streets of the monumental city, on their way to the defence of their country's capital. Our reception was very different from this, however, as we marched unmolested through the same streets that had so lately been stained with their blood. Our further progress was here arrested by an order for the regiment to go into camp on the McKim estate at Baltimore, which was christened Camp McClellan. During our stay here, two painful accidents happened which cast a gloom over the regiment. On the 20th of August, E. R. Wingate and Jerry Cokeley, two privates of Company A, were badly wounded by the accidental discharge of a loaded rifle; but both recovered and went on duty again. The other occurred on the 29th of August, when private Andrew J. Sproule, of Company I, was shot while on duty as sentinel, by a man named Scott, who had previously threatened bis life. This shooting was regarded by some as accidental, by others as the carrying out of his threat. Sproule lived but a few days.

“The regiment remained en camped here till the first of September, when it was thrown into a joyful state of excitement by an order to proceed at once tó Fortress Monroe, Va. The order to pack was given at three o'clock, P. M., and at half-past four the regiment was in line, ready for marching; and at nine o'clock, P. M., we embarked on board the steamer Louisiana en route for Fortress Monroe.. We arrived on the afternoon of the 2d of September, and proceeded to Camp Hamilton, which is located in the vicinity of Hampton, a short distance from the Fortress, where we found the Twentieth New York Volunteers, Col, Max Weber, and the Union Coast Guard, Col. Wardrop, already encamped. Our regiment was very hospitably provided for when we arrived at this camp, by the Twentieth New York Regiment, which proved most providential, as our tents and baggage were detained for three days, and the night air was already quite chilly, and our haversacks empty.

“Our stay at Camp Hamilton, up to the present time, Jan. 1, 1862, has been marked by nothing of special interest. The proficiency in drill shown by the Sixteenth entitles them to high rank and credit. An especial desire has been felt and shown on the part of the regiment to be sent to a scene of more active operations; to have gone with the great naval expedition to Beaufort, or even followed in its wake, would have given universal satisfaction to the Sixteenth. The general health of the regiment has been very good since we arrived at this camp, owing to its healthful ard pleasant location, and there has been but one death since our arrival, – that of private Wm. Stewart, of Boston, Company I, who died October 1st, of typhus fever.".

“We have a little excitement occasionally in camp by reports that reach us of intended attacks on our camp by the rebels, and we have been under arms several times all night, and have been under marching orders two or three times, but in each instance we bave met disappointment. Several of our men have had narrow escapes while on picket duty at night, - one man of Company K received a bullet through the top of his hat, and the orderly sergeant of Company I felt a bullet wbiz past his ear in closer proximity than was deemed agreeable; both shots being fired by some skulking, prowl. ing 'secesh,' screened by the woods outside the picket lines. The boys enjoy this sport, however, and are always ready to go on picket duty."

Company F, Lexington. — 16th Reg. This company takes the place of the original Lexington company, recruited and organized by Gen. Chandler, of Lexmgton, the members of which were at one time ordered to fill up the companies of the Middlesex and Essex regiments, – which order the company did not see fit to comply with. From that time the company rapidly declined, and on the reception of the order to report at Camp Cameron, July 20, 1861, the company had virtually become extinct. The captain reported, however, with what few men he could raise, and was sworn into the United States service July 12, which formed the nucleus for the present company, which was almost wholly recruiten at Camp Cameron, Mass.
