The .Maine' Fifth—.From the Chickahonm.
ny to Anlietam.
Camp Maine fifth Regiment, )
near Hagerstown, Md.. Sept. 27, 18(52. J
EnrroRH Press:—Perhaps a few words
from, the old “Filth Maine,” will not be unac
ceptable to your readers, at this time. In
. _ brief, therefore, I propose to give you a resume
of our recent operations. Alter a six weeks
sojourn upon the bills of Western Va., aptly
and truly denominated by a Richmond paper,
as being the “hottest place out of tophet,” we
were only too glad to get once more into a
healthy breathing place, through the long and
tedious march to Newport News. Here we
embarked for Alexandria, in the old steamer
“John Urooks,” whereon we languished so long
last April, in the waters of “Shipping Point”
harbor, awaiting the fall of Yorktown. Alas!
how solemn the thought that many of our com
rades, then in ail the hope and pride of vigor
ous manhood, now lay low in death amid the
swamps of the Chickahominy \—some stricken
down by disease, and others dying gloriously
upou the battle-fluid, while others still are ly
ing on lieds of anguish in their XorUiem homes,
, made cripples tor litis—• fittc, in some instan
ces, worse than death. Such is war!
Lauding at Alexandria, we marched to our
old quarters at Fort Lyon, the fruit ol our ear
ly handiwork with the spade and pick. Here
wc had scarcely time to gather breath lwfore
our ears were saluted with the order—“Pack
up and be ready to march in half an hour.”
This was a great disappointment to our weary
and footsore men, who had anticipated a few
days rest, but there was no help for it; and
cheerfully we went out way over the already
thrice-travelled road to Centreville. The
friends of Gen. Po|ie have blamed Gen. Frank
lin for not sooner coming to the support of the
former, but I am inclined to believe with but
little justice. Had we been hurried forward
at the “double-quick,” as was the ca«e at the
Bull Run of 'til, it is extremely doubtful if
the result had not been equally disastrous. As
11 was, aim i nave not seen me met announced
in any paper, probably because our corps d' ar
mee employs no newspaper correspondent to
write it into notoriety, we arrived in time to
check a panic which, had it been allowed to
augment, must have resulted in untold disas
ter. Our brigade under the lead of the gallant
Col. Bartlett, was in the advance, and just as
the last rays of the setting sun were fading
from the western sky, we crossed “Cub Kun'”
and advancing about half way to Bull Kun
creek, we flled^off to the right into a field,
and forming in line of battle, stacked arms and
threw our weary bodies on the ground for a
few minutes’ rest. At this time, the cannonad
ing had nearly ceased, and all accounts Irom
the front were of au encouraging nature, as ail
along the route we met couriers who an
nounced we were gaining a great victory. But
we bad scarcely got stretched upon the ground
when an officer rode furiously up to our brig
ade, shouting in an excited tone—“Fall in!
tlie reliel cavalry are upon us P’ In a twink
ling almost, every man was at his post. And
now commenced a scene which I hope never
to witness again. Against our brigade, now
formed in square to repel cavalry, came on a
mob of stragglers, cavalry, infantry aud artil
lery men, In squads, companies, and parts of
regiments, officers mixed up indiscriminately
with the men, all fleeing at their greatest speed
before an imagined pursuing foe. As they
reached our solid qplutnns, they broke to the
right and left, and many sped on, ainid the
scoffs and anathemas of our men, and did not
stop till they got to Centreville, while, others,
seeing our firm ranks,recovered from their pan
ic and formed again in our rear. It was Indeed
a disgraceful sight to see men and officers,run
ning before a foe not yet in sight, throwing
away their guns and swords, in their frantic
haste to get away. It is said this panic was
the result of a daring advance of a section of
rebel light battery upon our center, after Mc
Dowell’s line had been forced, and his men
were in full retreat. This battery threw a few
shells into a hospital, around which a crowd of
stragglers and teamsters had gathered, and
thus created the skedaddle, and came very
near turning the disorderly retreat of McDow
ell’s corps into aperfect stampede, which must
have ended in the capture of all of our artillery
and trains.
Our brigade maintained its ground while
the fatigued and war-worn veterans of Sigel
and McDowell passed to the rear and took up
a new position at Centreville; and then filing
off to the left, our right was selected to go on
picket, supported by Hexamer’s New Jersey
battery. Ours was a ticklish jiosition, but we
were not molested, and the next morning we
drew back and recrossed “Cub Kun” just as
the pioneers were destroying the bridge, being
the last troops that passed over, and in full
view of a rebel battery which came galloping
up to give us a parting salute.
I must not omit, in this connection, a little
incident that occurred while the panic was at
Its height Our Chaplain, the Kev. Mr. Ad
ams, of Gorham, a good Christian, and a sound
patriot, rode up along the front of our regi
ment, and checking his horse, viewed, for a
moment, the rushing crowd, and then, drawing
himself up to his full height, and with kindling
eye, he turned to us, and exclaimed, as he
pointed the Anger of scorn at them,—"Look at
them 1 look at them, boys! Oh shame! shame 1
shame!” The brave old chaplain 1 I could
have hugged him then. The eflfect was elec
tric, and it placed Itefore our men in its mean
est light, the shameful cowardice there dis
played. Major Kdwards, too, at this j uncture,
acted with great coolness and judgment, as
with encouraging words he rode along our
ines, and ever and anon, would dash in among
a crowd of skedaddlers, and compel them to
either enter our ranks, or give up their mus
kets to those of our men who were without
them.
With slow and steady tread wc kept on to
Centreville, passing the 1st Maine Cavalry on
the way. This regiment stands very high in
the estimation of general and cavalry officers,
aud many of the men are detailed as body
guard to the various brigades of Banks’ corps.

Constituting the rear of Pope's retreating ar
my, we were not in the fight at Chantilly, when
the brave and dashing Kearney, and the no less
brave, but much misunderstood Stevens, met
their death, but in death gave victory to our
arms, and saved Pope from the consequences ot
his long delay at Centreville. It was a dear
bought victory. Next to McClellan no man
enjoyed the confidence of our soldiers so much
as Phillip Kearney; and Stevens, had he lived,
would have made a reputation second to no
man.
Nothing of interest characterized our march
back to Fairfax, and frpm thence to Fort Ly
on again. At Fairfax we expected a linttle;
but the enertry, after the Chantilly fight, be
came shy; and besides, he had Ids eye on the
rich vales of eastern Maryland, wherewith to
recruit his starving legions. From Fort Ly
on we went to Fairfax Seminary, near old
Camp Franklin. Here we hoped to gain a lit
tle rest, and recuperate our wasted energies.
But no: the enemy were in Maryland, and
McClellan had determined to punish his temer
ity, now that he was in command once more.
And down over Long bridge, through the
streets of Washington, stopping just long
enough to clteor our gallant chief, up the
heights of Georgetown, aud along the dusty
road to Rockville, sped our wearied troops.—
Day after day, over suffocating roads, and un
der a burning sun, our poor fellows pushed on.
Now and then a poor fellow would fall ex
hausted from the ranks, and be borne to a
shady spot to await an ambulance, if indeed,
he lived. This march was especially hard for
the new regiments. But the enemy were rav
aging Maryland, and “forward,” was the word.
At length the spires of Frederick are in view,
and the booming of distant cannon tells that
Sumner is encased. AH fatigue is now forgot
ten, aud every eye kindles and every check is
aglow with excitement, as we move rapidly
forward; but instead of going to Frederick, we
turn to the left, and leatn that our destination
is Harper's Ferry which is menaced by Jack
son himself. But we arc not fated to get there
in time to prevent the consummation of the
foulest act of treachery the annals of warfare
present. Our purpose is anticipated by the
enemy, and Cobb's Legion and McGaw's Di
vision of Arkansas aud South Carolina troops
dispute the passage of Cratnpton Gap. Away
to our right, at the Pass of South Mountain,
we heard the roar of Burnside's cannon, telling
of a des|>erate struggle, aud it is evident to
Franklin that the rebels intend to hold these
passes at all hazards. To reach IIar|H-r’s Fer
ry it is necessary to possess this Gap, and up
on that calm .Sabbath afternoon, Gen. Frauk
liu calls a council of his Generals to decide as
to the best means to attain this en£ It is
finally determined, at the request of that Gen
eral, that Major Gen. Slocum’s Division shall
storm the pass at the point of the bayonet, as
our artillery can do nothing with that of the
! enemy, so advantageously jiosted on the side
; of the mountain. It was done—gloriously
done; and when the full particulars of the
achievement arc known, it will be universally
acknowledged as the most brilliant tight of the
war. Our brigade was selected to open the
ball, to be followed by the gallant Jersey brig
ade, and that in turn by Newton’s brigade,
j The 27th N. Y., 5th Maine, Kith N. Y, and
j 90th Penn., constitute our brigade, command
ed by Col. Bartlett, as brave an oftieer as ever
drew sword. The 27th was sent lorward as
skirmishers, and the 6th Maine on the left, and
and the 14th N. Y. on the right, constituted
1 the first line of battle, witli the 9Glh as a re
' serve. In this order, we commenced the fight,
advancing in the face of a furious cannonade,
through corii-tleids and over fences, never once
■ flinching or losing our line, although many
I slid is burst directly over us, wounding a few,
| until we got up with the skirmishers now hot
| ly engaged with the enemy. Immediately the
] “butternuts” came in view, crouched behind a
I stonewall and sheltered by the thick growth of
wood oil the mountain side. We gave them a
volley of musketry from right to left. For
over an hour was this lire kept up, the enemy
replying with vigor, and many of our boys
were carried to the rear. At last our ammu
j nitlon gave out, but just at this critical mo
ment the Jersey boys came on nt a charge,
and such a cheer as our powder-stained boys
i gave them must have struck terror to the
hearts of the rebels.
Retiring a few paces to the brow of a slight
declivity which afforded a slight protection
I from the solid shot of the enemy's cannon, we
waited the arrival of ammunition; but Gen.
; Newton, who was in immediate command, de
| termined to make a general advance of the
| whole line, with the bayonet, and up we got,
amid the whistling shot, ami at the order
“charge bayonets!” we went forward with a
shout over our first line of battle, and after
tlie Jerseys, who were already on the ground
occupied by the enemy. But before we could
get half way across the plowed Held separa
ting us from the enemy in the woods, an aid
rode up and ordered us to halt, and marched
us by “the right flank” to another portion of
the Held. Then Col. Bartlett rode up, and or
dered us hack a little distance for rest, stating
that we had done our share of the fighting,
and as the enemy were in full retreat, we were
no longer ueeded. By this time, too, the fir
I ing hail nearly ceased, and the cheers of the
gallant Jerseys could be heard high up the
mountain side. The gathering darkness alone
stayed the pursuit. The \ ictory was complete
Our loss in this fight was .33 killed and
wounded; our whole division loss will not ex
ceed 300 killed, while that of the enemy is
nearly double. We also took 1.100 prisoners,
among them the commander , of the Georgia
legion, also several pieces of cannon. Our
men behaved nobly in this fight, seemingly
indifferent to the shells that burst in rapid suc
cession all around them. Col. Jackson and
Lieut. Scammon were promptly on hand, at
tending to the safety of their men, while Maj.
Edwards was in the thickest of the fight, direct
ing the fire and stimulating every one by his
example. Capt. Bucknam, than whom no
braver man breathes, was severely wounded
in the shoulder. All the line officers did their
duty nobly.
