Twenty-Ninth Regiment.

Seven of the companies composing this regiment were the first three years' troops that entered the field from Massachusetts. They arrived at Fortress Monroe early in May, 1861, and were, for the time being, attached to the 3d and 4th Massachusetts Militia Regiments. These companies were then commanded by Captains Barnes, Chipman, Chamberlain, Clarke, Doten, Leach, and Tyler. Captains Barnes and Chipman were promoted when the regiment was organized. Captain Tyler resigned in July, '61, and his place was filled by Captain I. N. Wilson. Captains Barnes' and Clarke's companies were engaged in the battle of Big Bethel, and performed good service, one man in each company being killed. Upon the departure of the 3d and 4th Massachusetts Militia Regiments from the seat of war, July 16th, 1861, the seven three years' companies were placed under command of Captain Joseph H. Barnes, Company K, and were known as the Masssachusetts Battalion. They were so commanded until Dec. 13th, 1861, when the 29th Regimen: was formed in Massachusetts, with the Massachusetts Battalion as the basis.

During the time they were known as a battalion, they performed valuable services. Two companies - Captains Leach's and Wilson's- garrisoned the Rip Raps a long time, and had charge of the prisoners at that important post. The other five companies have been stationed at Hampton, Fort Monroe, Camp Hamilton, and, since August 18th, 1861, at Newport News, where they were joined by Colonel Peirce and three new companies - F, G, and H - on the 17th of January, 1862. The two companies which had been stationed at the Rip Raps rejoined the battalion, Nov. 5th, 1861. On the 21st of October, portions of Captains Barnes, Chipman's, Chamberlain's, Clarke's, and Doten's companies, under command of Captain Barnes, had a smart skirmish with a greatly superior force of the enemy, about six miles above Newport News. The enemy fled in confusion, and the battalion were highly complimented by General Phelps, commanding the post. The five companies were present at the burning of Hampton, and lay on their arms during the night, while their pickets were engaging the enemy. 'The seven companies have performed all the various duties which fall to the lot of a soldier - they have been in battle, skirmishes, scouting; mounted guns, dug trenches, thrown up breastworks, &c.

Company C, East Bridgewater. - 29th Reg. This company was recruited by Capt. Leach, at East Bridgewater, and started for Boston, Thursday, May 9. On their departure from the above town, they were escorted to the depot by a large number of citizens of the place. Before leaving, several addresses were made, suited to the occasion, at the close of which they embarked on board the cars, and Amid the huzzas from the gathered crowd they left for this city. On their arrival here new orders had been issued from headquarters that no more three months' men were wanted, - that they were wanted for three years. As many of the company had not made their arrangements to leave for so long a time, it was decided to return home again, and start Anew, which they did. The next week, all being in readiness, they again leit for Boston, and embarked on board the steamer Cambridge for Fortress Monroe.

This was May 8. The next day the captain received orders to report with his company, ready for departure, May 10, and sailed that day, with Company L, Capt. Tyler, in the steamer Pembroke, for Fortress Monroe, where they arrived, May 13, and were mustered into the United States service the next day, and attached to the 3d Regiment, Col. Wardrop. They remained with that regiment until July 16, when the three years' men of the 3d and 4th Regiments were organized as a battalion, under the command of Capt. Joseph H. Barnes, and remained in that condition until Dec. 13, when they were attaclied to the 29th Regiment.

Capt. Chamberlain holds the oldest commission of any of the three years' captains from Massachusetts. Before the company left Lynn the Empire Fire Association, No. 5, gave them sixty-six very fine frock-coats, valued at twelve dollars each.

There has been one death in this company, and thirteen of its men have been discharged. Ten of this number were examined out by the surgeon, and were sent home with the three months' troops. One was accidentally wounded in the hand, and two were discharged for disability. One of the above number, Samuel L. Eaton, proceeded towards home as far as Baltimore, since which time nothing has been heard from him. There have been added to the company eighteen men since the first of January, 1862.
