' II IH WAR DAYSi
uled Up for Measurement Pr..l i liminary to a Brief Week of Peace. uing to the Utmoat the Luokless Plebes in the Summer of 1829, lsructlois of Cadet L- to Plebian Mr. inag-Democraoy of the BankL Of the Past. [Written for Thma Haar,,n InoDEPND1ENT.1 E HAD BEEN DIILL r inug three times and reciting twice a day from the moment of our arrival at West Point until hauled up for "preliminary ex amination" after the 20th of June. Physi cally this was right and searching; men: tally it. was a mere bagatelle. We had all been measured for our uniforms (good old SMorrison, rest his soull telling me that I sn't half the man my father was before e, for he made his cadet and engineering forms way back in '38-a comparison ioh proved eminehtly well fouqded.) We d thanked heaven moat devoutly when r persecutors, the yearlings and the new at class were marched off to camp. The aduating class were rushed to the front, d the "furlough class," having oom eted just one-half of the prescribed four are' course, was permitted to scatter meward for a two months' visit. How let and peacel, i and altogether delight 1 the deserted barracks seemed to us, th our, tormentors away. One blessed ek we were free from authorized bully g by day, though time and again one daring soamps of yearlings stole out camp in the dead of night and, stealth invading barracks while our guardians(?) re soundly sleeping, whipped our blank a from under us, leaving nothing but the re boards of the flooring for our couch, Id disappeared as noiselessly and quickly they came, carrying with them our shoes, ots and bedding. Deaf as were the cadet rporals on duty to the, scurry of their apsmatees,there was no reflection on their gilance when we were the breakers of reg stipns. Venturing to strike a match and ht our single gas jet that my Maine and aryland room-mates might join me in a arch for shoes, in came at the instant a etn-faced cadet corporal. (How we have kghed ovor'it since, he the now distin ished major of engineers and I the nged-up dragoon.) "How dare you have light. in quarters after taps? Consider urself in close arrest, sir. What do you atlemen mean by being out of bed at this or of the night?" "Cause we're out of bedding, sir," re ibs Mr. Greene, of Maine. with the broad in that no cadet tormenters ever auc eded in banishing.fos. hi5e good-humored ce. Cadet Corporal Miller knows this at as well as we do, but will tolerate no itticiams; "No levity, Mr. Greene. You ought to ashabumed of yourself, sir. Men who can t guard their own property are not fit to entrusted with the care of government .ores. Stop that laughing, Mr. Greene. "1NO LEVITY." S for you, Mr. King, shoulder that broom d walk post here in the hall for the next o hours for lighting your gas without rmission." Meantime, of course, most of the plebes ad been "tuned out" and after an hour's 'arch in the gymnasium, the bar'ack liars, on the wide level of the plain; in ed, far over toward camp (where two f our number were fiercely surrounded d arrested by the now vigilant guards d marched off to prison on suspicion of ing spies), and scattered blankets, sheets, c., were recovered and we were per itted to turn in again to get such rest as as possible 'twixt four o'clock and the weille at five. And then, examinations over, one fine y, about the 25th of June, we poor young ars, with a world of trouble ahead of us, ere marched across the cavalry plain to e glistening white tents of camp; were oeived with tumultuous acclamation by e whole yearling classe-the seniorsa pat nizingly looking on-were distributed to e companies to which we had been as gned; were shown in wh'ch tents to un. ad our "plunder," and then left to tirhe oder mercies of the third class. In the minmmer of '61 the new class entered, over e hundred strong, and the' yearhlings, re ucneed by resignations, etc.. to barely lilt y-five, managed to keep the pleboes sily occupied. If under these coondi one life was made a burden to the new .maers think of our plight in '62, when the nrling class was bigger than our own. hink what it must have been in Company of the corps of cadets in that memora sle summer of '02 when I tell you that only ght plebes were assigned thier eto, and ere promptly notified that they must take re of the belongings of some forty upper iass men. What did that mean? Well, erhaps the remarks of Cadet L-. of the sird class, U. S. Mi. A., June, 1862, will cx lain. "Here you plebe-Mr, King. You are as gned to special duty at my tent. You ill report there every morning at police 1l with a bucket of fresh water; tie up eo tent wall; make up the bedding; eep and dust. If there's anything wrong t inspectios', sir, you will be 'yanked' irty times that night. You will keep the fles of Messrs. 11- and ll- and myself in effect order; you will see to it that our rtridge boxes and bayonett scabbards are lways properly varf ished; that cl.on, hits belts are in ovary other day. aed al aye for guard and inspectIon; that the ompon sockets, eagles, castles and buckles f the dress hat, the bell plates, and all ther brasses of our accoutrements are eshly polished every afternoon; thkit' all e shoes aie cleaned and blacked overy ay (carry themrn to and from the slino lack's tent, sir, and keep them properly uted, but never black them yourself, eli', lat's menial labor). You will report hers scry day the moment we get back from inner aend entertain us with cheerful and proving conversation while we smokeonr ipes and prepare for the afternoon siestas ou will see to it that we are not disturbed I intruders-or flies-will awaken us in tibi, fdti4l beitn u rp l * rie v * iant hi aifernoon o police cl ii let down and lasto .ea the tut. al obefore palrade and aiki; doWn ihe b4dd gg after tatttOo, shee*l rse year' n, t on t J porei. fl e farm tioelo tlou tbo ;w ,. course yoi wllle alled uponl to do similar .ork for othr igentlemie4 in A Company asi the commandatnt as bebn sottho gh tlse asI to assign only elght plobes to Uo, while thirty have been unloaded on Cmpoan t . where they are not needed, there belig only ten gentlemenpresent with the company, but undestand stinctly your arst duty to us, even at the expense of getting re ported for the condition of your own tent; sour demerits don't count yet, - itr do, Now, sir, you are duly placed on duty." But that was only one tent. It treseatl , transpired that I would be oxpected to lmoo after the domain of our next door neigb boron the left, a dashing yearling whom I haU known when he was at Charlier's and I at Anthon's, and both at Wood's dym easium and the same dancing school In New York, Three of no aspirants for mili tary lorv were quartered in the second tent on the south side of the company street. One of my tent-mates, the Yale man, was 'detailed on special duty" over the tent of a bracen of happy third lals men at our right hand, with incidental du tie to perform at the tent of two cadet ofcere and the cadet first sergeant. The next, a dark-eyed boy from Oswego, had twe tents assigned to him, and as for our own "plebe hotel" we took week and week about, Prehently one of our eight was oaken ill and to the hospital, and his duties were "distributed" to me. If the davil finds mischief for idle hands to do the devil had no show whatever so far as I was concerned and the summer of '62 lasted. From the rising of the sun until several hours after the going down of the eame no A Company plebehad an Instant of leisunre. It was a point of honor with the old cadets to keep the new ones at work. Eatch day. morning and evening, the "police details," consisting of four members of the third and fourth olase.e; put the company ground In thorough order, the third classea elsm ply reqgrtnri his 'special duty plebe to ap pear in his sstead. A firat-ciase private, in those days, when detailed for guard duty would merely inquire what plebe in his company was sufficiently well instructed to represent him, and gave no further thought to the matter. N.ariy one half of the class was in uniform before the lourth of July came round, and I had worn cadet uniform perforce, before going to examination. In deed, I went to the hospital for physical examination in cadet gray (before the eur geons we all appeared in uniform--natral buff) bt it was that or nothing. A goallant fellow graduating prematurely two days previous concluded tnat he liked my New York college suit (the last made for me by Jim Bell, of blessed memory) better'than his own, and his natty gray coatee and trousers fitted me to a dot. The swap was made by the advice of our cadet lieutenant commanding the plebee-it hardly needed my coneent. ",loeom shirts." too, were ,things no cadet could use, so they went to another good fellow, whom we heard of as fighting like a Iladiator in Hancock's fore most line at Gettysburg. I wondered if the bullet that ripped away sash and coat and a long furrow in hit coat had similarly ohanneled one of those lamented shirts of mine. All this labor, all this rough initiation, all this apparent "harassing or molesting" of the plebes went on openly and above board, and nobody in authority seemed to care a whit. Indeed, we thought, the old oadete thought, and I believe to this day it was generally thought by officers old and young, that it was all "winked at" because of its utterly leveling effect. It brought the college-bred youth and the country bump kin down to the same oiane. It sternly forbade them seeking comrades or asso ciates among the upper classmen, and made the plebes rely solely on one another for friendship or sympathy. It laid each year the foundations of that deep, abiding and almost enthusiastic class feeling which at West Point, more than any other college I ever heard of, bloomed and flourished, year after year, stronger and stronger. It may have beep all wrong in pritciple, but it was great in reatilt and then what experts we \became in cleaning guns and ,buckles and belt plat ... - , ..m. Yet this, too, is a thing of the past.
