Excerpt from History of the Twenty-First Regiment Massachusetts Volunteers in the War for the Preservation of the Union, 1861 1865: With Statistics of the War and of Rebel Prisons
Since I ceased to be connected with the regiment, I have derived information not only from sourc... es indicated above, but from the carefully-collated statements and diaries of sev eral officers and men, to whom I have, as far as possible, given credit in the text or notes from time to time.
I am also indebted to major-general John G. Parke, Chief of Engineers, for a full set of the war maps published by the government; to the late major-general Burnside, for copies of official reports obtained from the War Department; and to the late Governor Bullock, for copies of his eloquent ad dresses to the regiment on its departure from the State in 1861, and return on the re'enlistment furlough, in 1864.
