Tho march of tho Tenth cavalry, a
negro regiment, from IX Ethan Allen,
Vt., to tho camp of Instruction near
Winchester, Ya., has not attracted
much attention, but It was a line per
formance. The distance traversed
was 705.30 miles and the routo was
through five states and over several
mountain ranges. The start was made
on June 1C, nnd Winchester was reach
ed on July 19. Kour days tho regiment
rested, nnd tho average day's ride was
23.53 miles. TJ10 weather was general
ly hot, the maximum temperature be
ing about 100 degrees on several dajs.

tho Instruction camp In good condi
