Seventeenth Regiment.

The camp

While this regiment was being organized, Col. Dike, of the Seventh M. V. M., was detailed to take the command, no colonel having been commissioned. named Camp Schouler – was formed on the 10th of July at Lynnfield, where the regiment remained till the 23d of August.

The regiment was recruited mostly in Essex County, and is composed largely of shoemakers, tanners, &c.

On the 23d of August, the regiment was ordered to report immediately at Washing. ton, under the command of Lieut.-Col. Fellows. Accordingly, on that day, the regiment having been drawn up in line, Col. Dike, after making a few remarks to the men, relinquished his command to Col. Fellows, who, after reading the order for him to take command of the regiment, and to proceed to Washington, addressed the troops in a brief but telling speech. A prayer was then made by the Rev. Dr. Putnam, of Roxbury, after which Gen. Schouler and Gen. Oliver addressed them, exhorting them to do their duty to their country in this its time of peril.

At eight o'clock, P. M., of that day, the regiment started, passing through Boston in the night, and arriving in New York the next afternoon. At Baltimore, they were ordered to stop, under the command of General Duryea, - the order to report at Washington having been countermanded.

It being the time when Washington was threatened by the rebels, the regiment had beea ordered on before it had received its full complement of men. About a month after its arrival, Col. Amory, who still holds the rank of captain in the United States service, having obtained a furlough of three years, was commissioned colonel of the Seventeenth, and he immediately proceeded to Baltimore and assumed the command.

In November, Companies C, E, F, G, H, and K, under the command of Col. Amory, were attached to the forces under command of Gen. Lockwood, for the purpose of making an advance into Northampton and Accomac Counties, Va.; on which expedition they were gone about a month, having in that time succeeded in driving the rebels from the peninsula, taking all the forts, capturing several guns and a large quantity of arms and munitions of war, and thoroughly establishing the authority of the United States.

Company O (Danvers Light Infantry), Danvers.—17th Reg. The formation of this corps was commenced in April, 1861, and the number so rapidly increased that the full number were soon obtained. At the same time the ladies were zealously affected in the good work of providing an outfit, which was completed in the most generous style, the citizens aiding by large contributions, amounting in all, for both companies from the town, to $3,000.

The outfit for each soldier embraced a cap, jacket, pants, two pairs of drawers, two pairs of flannel shirts, two pairs of stockings, handkerchiefs, one pair of shoes, and two havelocks.

Capt. Fuller was furnished with a sword, sash, dressing case, and an elegant copy of the Bible, the gifts of Miss Catharine Putnam, of Peterboro', N. I., a native of the town, also with a pistol, the gift of Augustus Mudge, Esq. The other officers, also, were amply equipped. Each soldier received a copy of the New Testament and Psalms, neatly bound together, a gift from the Sabbath Schools. A fine national flag, richly mounted, was presented to the company in behalf of the town.

For nearly two months previous to their being incorporated as Company C, in the 17th Massachusetts Regiment, they occupied their time in daily drill, under pay from the town. While waiting to be designated for service in the army, they went into a private camp in the town of Gloucester, and thus became accomplished to a rare degree in the tactics of military science. They have held the post of honor in the regiment, on the left, and afterwards on the right.
