burg. The general telegraphed this information to Washington as having
been obtained from an "intelligent contraband," and the words became
immortal. He was guide for our column to Fredericksburg and was a
faithful and intelligent servant to the colonel until the return of the regi-
ment. He was only known then as Alfred, but now, at Albany, where
he has a family and is doing well, he is known as Alfred Peyton.

We were visited during this period by Col. A. M. Wood, who
remained only one day and returned to Washington. A good story is told
here of Colonel Fowler that he made a pass for three days — none
being granted for a longer period to Washington or elsewhere — which he
dated one day ahead and procured from General King, then commanding
the division, his approval at a time apparently too late to be used that day,
but by hard riding he caught the boat at Belle Plains and was in Brooklyn
at the date of the commencement of his pass, which gave him two days
there and a day to return.

Lieutenant Colonel Kilpatrick of the Harris Light Cavalry, with
many of his officers, one day paid a visit of ceremony to our colonel, and
on dismounting there were plenty of volunteers to hold their horses. As
Kilpatrick afterward told it at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, he came
out of the tent just in time to see the finish of a horse race (which had been
arranged by the red-legged horse holders), and his horse came in ahead.

On the whole, this was, perhaps, the most homelike and pleasant
camp in which the regiment was ever located. Although the days were
warm, the nights were delightful, and the lights from the houses in the
city across the river casting their reflections in the water, the hourly striking
of the town clock heard throughout the stillness of the night, and the
ripple of the rapids above the town were suggestive more of peace than
war, but the gleam of the white tents and the occasional challenge of a
sentry too plainly told us of our business there.

When we first encamped the frost was still lingering in the ground,
and it was no uncommon thing that the warmth of the soldier's blanket
laid on the ground and his body sleeping on it would bring out from its
hole during the night a snake for a bedfellow. The place abounded In
snakes, and often In day time, when one was crawling out from his winter
quarters, he would be seized In the act by the naked hand of one of the
men, pulled out and killed. Another pest, the tick, was very abundant In

this camp. You would know nothing of his presence until he had imbedded
himself under your skin so that he had to be cut out with a knife.

The people here and across in Fredericksburg were almost entirely
rebels in principle. There were few men at home who were able to bear
arms, but their property was scrupulously protected, and near one-third
of the regiment was detailed as safeguards at the surrounding dwellings.
Half a mile in the rear of the camp was the Washington farm, occupied
by descendants of that family, and the neighborhood was largely one of
aristocratic F. F. V.'s. There was one exception near the camp of a Union

family. Dr. 's. They had a piano and two young ladies to play and

sing. Pleasant evenings were passed there by many of the officers and
men. Shortly after our occupation. It being reported that communication
was being had with the residents of Fredericksburg by the enemy during
the dark hours of night, a company of the regiment was sent over and
remained there during our stay as provost guard, and soon all our men
were acquainted with the ins and outs of Fredericksburg.

A curiosity there, particularly to Free Masons, was the lodge room
in which General Washington presided as master, and all his regalia and
paraphernalia of office was still present. The Masons of our number
organized a lodge and held a communication there. The tomb of the
mother of Washington was on the heights back of the town, In an unfin-
ised state, the cap having never been placed on the pedestal, although
it had lain by its side for years. A movement was agitated by our men to
complete it, but before it could be carried Into effect the regiment moved.

The river abounded In fish. The men attempted themselves to draw
nets they found there for them, but, being unsuccessful, an arrangement
was made that a guard should protect the native fishermen and the fish
should be sold to the men at very reasonable rates.

Encamped near us and attached to our brigade was the Second United
States Sharpshooters, raised In New York and commanded by Colonel
Post, of that city. They were called the "Chippies" by our boys, owing
to their having no drums and using the bugle calls entirely, and their first
call, the one that was most used, appeared to articulate the word, "chippie,
chippie, chippie." They were armed with the Colt repeating rifle, which
they changed for the Sharp breech-loader while at this camp. It was a
very effective regiment.

General Shields' command from the valley joined us here. As they
regarded themselves as veterans, having had a successful fight with Stone-

wall Jackson at Winchester, and on their arrival being rough-looking and
travel-stained, the appearance of our boys with their bright new uniforms,
paper collars and white leggins, blackened shoes, etc., drew from them
insulting taunts — "Band-box soldiers," "Feather-bed soldiers," etc. This
talk soon brought on a fist fight down in Falmouth, which did not result to
the advantage of the veterans of Winchester. It soon became so general
that the provost marshal and his guard had their hands full to stop it
without loss of life.
