Ilorwick, Columbia County, April 1st. IS 10.
His father was a shoemaker, anil born in
Connecticut. Into yet a mero lad it be
came evident to him that ho had to make
his own way through tho wot Id. At tho ago
of twelve ho became a diiver ol a boat team
on the canal, his trips extending from Pitts-
ton to Haltiniore, winch occupation ho fol
lowed several years, except durinir the har
vest, when ho with other boatmen aided tho
neighboring farmers. Part of the winter
and tho early spring ho was employed in
making repairs on tlio canal, then bcloncin
to the fetato, ttundling his'whcel-barrow
along the narrow plank, handling tho pick
axe, and earning his $1.00 per day with tho
men. About this timo ho beeaino a resident
in Air. Jluckalew s family, and for the fir
tunc ctij'oyed tho advantages of a retrular
f chool. Upon Jlr. Ruckalew's dennHnn. Cn
laraguay m ISul to exchange ratification of
treaty between tho United States and that
country.young Urockway resumed his former
occupation ot boating. Soon after, tho canal
authorities employed him in tho resnonsibl
and laborious po-ition of Weigh Master, at

was appointed Chief Clerk in the Attorney
General's Office at Han isbivrg, which posi
tion he held until the close of tho Legislative

Call, applied to (Jov. Cm-tin for an order for
election to fill tho vacancy which was made.
Capt. Urockway was unanimously elected,
and at onco took command of tho section
then tho only Light Aitillery on tho Poto
mao between Harper's Perry ami Cumber
land. Tho duties wcro inecsant. not onlv
becaus-o of tho long lino to bo held, but
bceauso of tho frequent efforts of tho enemy
to cross, it having been reported 0110 nicht
that tho ciicuiy weio about to cros at Han
cock, Capt. Urockway made a forced march
theioof twenty-seven miles, in ono night
and succeeded in checking the enemy before
tho infantry could auive. Hales' Ilistoryof
tlio Pennsylvania oluntccrs in relercnco to
this trip says :
"A slight skirmish ensued in which tho
great accuracy of (ho rilled pieces was dem
onstrated, several men and horses being kill
ed and wounded, by tho first shell discharged,
lew days later it was reported that tho
enemy wcro destroying tho railroad in that
vicinity, and Lieut. Urockway was ordered
to mask ono of his pieces and open upon tho
party, Tho first shot struck tho engino cm-
loyed, and tho f econd burst among tho men,
killing five and wounding twelve others."
In February, 1802, it question having aris
en in tho Adjutant General's oflieo ut Wash
ngton, in regard to whether tho vacancy of
'irst Lieutenant had really existed in tho
Ilattcry, Capt, Urockway immediately 10
signcd his eoniniis-ion, but, instead of return
ing home, promptly took his place in tho
ranks, by tho side of tho men ho had beforo
commanded. Soon, however, ho was ugain
unanimously elected Second Lieutenant of
tho Ilattcry and was afterwards regularly
promoted ns vacancies occurred.
In March, ISC'J, tho Uattcry moved in tho
advaneo with Ranks column on Winchester,
participated m tho numerous skirmishes on
tho route, and w.i'tho first Union Uattcry to
enter Winchester. It nlso participated in
the frequent rcconnoisances made around
that city. In April it joined McDowell'
Corps, near Warrenton. Hero several im
portant engagements took place, in all of
winch Capt. Urockway took prominent part.
peaking ot ono of theso rcconnoisances,
Col. Dryan, commander cf tho expedition
in lus olltcial report said :
"Two masked batteries then suddenly en
filaded us. A slight changs was uiado in our

Soon after Gen. Abercrombio sent Lieut
Lonovcr ot bis Statf, Capt. Matthews and
Lieut. Jliockway, with 20 cavalrymen, from
arrcnton Junction to Rappahannock Sta
tion on a fiesh expedition. Arriving there
they determined to strike down tho river to
Falmouth, and if possible join Gen. Augur's
command at that point. The patty made
tho raid successfully, reaching Falmouth near
midnight, and conveyed mucli valuable in-
foimation to tho General commanding.
In May tho Ilattcry moved to Falmouth,
but tho sudden appearance of Stonewall
Jackson in tho Shenandoah Valley, caused
McDowell to detach a portion of his Corps
tho Uattcry with it, and by (breed marches
through the ram, and over bad roads they
reached Front Rojal. Tho result is too well
known to require further comment. From
this point the Uattcry followed tho move
ments of Polio's army, engaged in tho battle
of Cedar Mountain, advanced to tho Rapt
Uan, and paiticipatedin thedi-astrous retreat
that followed. At Rappahannock Station it
became hcce.-aiy to make a stand ; and, al
though tho whole army had cro-sed tho river,
Ilaitsnff's Uiigade and Lieut. Rrockway's
section o( Aitillery crossed to tho side held
by tho enemy, on a narrow Railroad biidge,
ind held the Confederates at bay until rein
forcements arrived. Soon after a fiereo artil

including Lieut. Gndbold, were killed and
wounded, and two guns were dismounted.

and after liddling ti stnno mill and some
houe in which the enemy's! sharpshooters
wero posted, tho infantry advanced and took
thctii and established their lines so as to in
sure tho safely of the Uattcry, and to hold
tho enemy at bay. Tho guns held complete
command of tho Gap until dark, when tho
III igtido fell back to join tho main bodv."
The command then took a iioMtion in lino
of battle at Hull Run, near tho llenrv
House. Say Dates' History:
"At four o'clock in the afternoon, Lieuten
ant Case was sent with his section to tho
right to report to General Stevens, leaving
Urockway alono tho section disabled at Rap
pahannock Station not having been repaired.
lo tlio leu ol Urockway was commanding
ground, where tho enemy had posted fifty
piecci of his aitillery. At a concerted sig
nal his guns opened, and his iufivntry moved
forward in heavy masses. A fierce cannon
ade was opened in reply, and his infantry
Hero driven b iek. Tho troops in sunnart of
our aitillery soon disappeared, and tho bat
tery was withdrawn to a now position: but
hero it was discovered that tho enemy had
possession of tho Sudloy Spring Road, tho
only avenue of escape, and tho guns weio
lost. Of tho thirty-fivoincn with tho battery
in tho morning, only three roniaiuod, and
they succeeded in maklii-; their way to a point
where an effort was ling made to stuy tho
advancing tido of tho enemy. Another gun,
with a fresh detachment of men, was placed
under Lieutenant Rioekway, with orders to
fill "the ihost full of ammunition."
A slow firo was kept up until dusk upon
groups of tho enemy wherever seen, when
directions were received from General Ilcint
zleuian, to hold tho position until further or
ders, and to keep up n steady fire in tho di
rection of tho enemy. Supposing ho was to
bo supported, Lieutenant Urockway contin
ued his fire, until suddenly ho found himself
charged upon by tho enemy, who were swarm

men, much to tho chagrin of Iho rebel com
mander, "Our troops," says Lieutenant
Urockway, "had safely ro-crosscd Hull Run,
and I then understood that it was intended
that wo should hold tho hill until killed or
captured, whilo tho balanco of tho army re
treated behind Hull Run. It was somo con
solation to know that tho ruso had succeeded
and, as I afterwards learned, whllo oursolita
ry gun was booming from tho Henry House,
tho Uucktails wcro cutting down tho bridgo
across Hull Run."
Lieut. Urockway, with the other officers
captured was marched on foot to tho Rapidan
River, and from thenco was conveyed to
Libby Prison as ono of Pope's felons, whcro
ho remained until exchanged. Ho was a
prisoner when Antietam was fought, and it
was die only engagement of the war ho miss
ed in which his Uattcry participated. At
Fredericksburg it held an important position,
covering tho lower pontoon bridgo, and was
subject to a heavy fire.
Of tho Company's participation in the
Chanccllorsvillo fight, Hales, in his history,
On the evening of Sunday, tlio day on
which tho heaviest fighting occurred, Uat
tcry ! relieved becley's regular battery which
had lost in tho day's work fifty men and as
many horses. Tho enemy's lino was only
two hundred and fifty yards distant. Cap
tain Rickctts was ordered to hold the posi
tion at all hazards. Tho horses wero, accor
dingly, sent away to the rear, nnd tho grapo
and canister was silently piled at tho muz
zles of tho pieces, other ammunition being
of little avail in so cloe quarters. At ton
o'clock p. in., our pickets were driven in and
tho guns wero double shotted. For a little
timo a perfect storm of bullets wcro show
ered upon the battery by tho enemy's infant
ry; but tho canister, which was poured forth
in almost a continuous stream, was too terri
ble for them to withstand. Several times
during the night the rebels advanced, but
could not bo induced to charge up to tho
muzzles of tho guns. On tho same night our
infantry threw up breastworks, and on the
following day, Monday, a reconnois-anco by
Griffin's Division disclosed tho fact that tho
enemy was heavily entrenched and awaiting
an attack. "Throughout tho entire day,"
says Lieutenant Urockway, "wo were annoy
ed by their sharp-shooters. General Whip
ple was shot by ono of them closo to our
battery. Somo of Uerdan's sharp-shooters
routed them, except ono persistent fellow
stationed behind a largo tree in tho forks of
which he rested his rifle. Ho put six bullets
in tho sapling which covcicd ono of Uer
dan's men. Ho was finally shot by setting
threo men to work at him. On his person
was found forty-eight dollars in gold, two
hundred in greenbacks, fifty in confederate
money and threo packs of caids.
At ten o clock at night tho enemp advanced
in strong columns, and peal upon peal of
musketry rang out upon tho still night air.
Iho 'zit, 'zit,' of the Mitno balls, and their

spersed with yells and cheers from fiicnd and

morning they advanced in heavier columns
and ono continued roar was kept up, from

Tho batteiy hero occupied an exposed po

Captain Rickctts had been advised that tho
enemy would doubtless, mako desperate ef
forts to take it, and was ordered to hold it to
tho last extremity. Ho had, accordingly, sent
his' horses well to tho rear, but had his cais
sons harnessed and ready to move upon tho
instant of warning. As soon as ho diseov-
red that this compact and desperate rebel
column was moving upon his position, ho
charged his pieces with canutcr and poured
in the deadly volleys, four discharges per
minute, throwing five hundred pounds of
deadly missiles full in tho faces of Iho foe.
lint theso desperate men had never failed in
charge, and nothing daunted, they closed
up whero their lino was blown away, nnd
rushed forward with deafening yells. Tho
infantry supports lying behind tho stono wall
in front, flod in despair, and tho battery on
Iho left with its supports was overwhelmed.
Hie batteiios on the right were so nnsted
liat'they could not fire ufter tho eiiciuv bo-
gan to aseend tho hill. Tho brunt of tho
attack therefore fell upon Rickctts. Rut ho
well knew that tho heart of tho whole army
was throbbing for him in that desperate
hour, and how much tho enemy coveted tho
piizo for which ho was making so desperate
a throw. With an iron hand lie kept every
man to his post und every gun in full play.
Tho giving way of our lino upon tho loft
brought tho Tigers upon his flank. Pouring
in a volley fiom behind n stono wall that ran
eloso to his left pieco, they leaped tho fence,
bayoneted tho men, spiked tho gun, and
killed or wounded tho entire detachment,
fiive three, who wcro taken prisoners. Rut
tho remaining guns still belched forth their
doublo rounds of canister, tho officers and
drivers taking tho places of tho fallen can
noneers. Tho battery's guidon was planted
in ono of tho earthworks, and a rebel Lieu

Tho rebels wero now in the very midst of
tlio battery, nnd m tho darkness it was diffi
cult to distinguish friend from foe. A strug
glo ensued for tho guidon. It had fallen in
to tho hands of a rebel. Seeing this, Lieut.
Urockway seized a stono and felled him to
tho ground, and tho next instant the rebel
was shot with his own musket. A sccno of
tho wildest confusion ensued, Tho men at
the batteries wcro outnumbered, and wcro
being overpowered by a maddened and reck
less foe. Hut still they clung to their guns,
and with hand-spikes, rammers and stones,
defended them with desperate valor, cheering
each other on, and shouting, "Death on our
own State soil rather than give tho enemy our
guns." At this critical moment Carroll's
Hrigado camo gallantly to tho rcseuo, and
tho cnemy retreated in confu-ion. Tho men
again flow to their guns and with loud cheers
gave him somo parting salutes, in tho form
of doublo shotted canister. Thus ended tho
grand cltargo of Early's Division, headed bi
lbo famous Louisiana Tigers, who blasted
that they had never before been repulsed in
a charge. They camo forward, seventeen
hundred strong, maddened with liquor, and
confident of crushing in our lino, nnd hold
ing this commanding position. They went
back barely six hundred, and the Tigers were
never afterward known as an organization.
At early dawn of tho 3d a heavy cannon
ado opened on the cxtrcmo right, wliero
Geary was engaged in a desperate struggle,
which continued until eleven a. in. There
van then a lull and perfect quiet reigned un
til ono p. m., when a single shot, fired near
the Seminary, was tho signal for ono hun
dred and ten guns, which tho enomv bad
skillfully posted, to open. Tho position of
idcketts was most unfavorable. Occupying
tho commanding ground at tho anglo in tho
centre, and at tho most advanced point of tho
line, it was feai fully exposed. FromHenner's
Hill and Seminary Ridgo it was completely
enfiladed. Turning four of his guns upon the
former, ho ordered tho remaining two to bo
posted behind the stono wall which skirted his
left flank, and replied to such guns on tho
latter as proved most troublesome. Soon it
was ascertained that tho amunition was run
ning low and tho fire was slackened, a close
watch being kept in the direction of tho town
for tho appearance of tho rebel infantry.
Hut still tho enemy kept up an unremitting
fire which was continued for three hours in
ono unceasing roar. Then camo his crand
charge of infantry, and his signal repulse. In
the midst of it General Meade rodo un into
tho battery and said, "Wo have beaten them
back from tho centre and taken over a thou
sand prisoners; all depends upon your saving
ammunition." Rut tho enemy had now had
enough of battle, and duriegtho night began
nts retreat, l ho loss during tho entire en
gagement was nino killed, fourteen wounded
and threo taken prisoners, about one-half of
the number actually engaged. Tho loss in
horses was over forty.
During tho engagement tho Hag-staff was
snot in two in Lieut. Urockw.ty's hand.
Tho Uattcry was now transferred to the
Second Corps, with which it remained during
tho balance of tho war. With the Corps it
tuarclicd on to tho Rapidan, constantly en
gaging tho enemy. During Meado's retro
grade movement on Hull Run in October,
1SC3, tho Second Corps formed tho rear
guard. It fought the battlo of nristoo Sta
tion. Speaking of tho battle, Hates History
"At Hristoo Station, nn tho I Ith nf Octo
ber, W arren s Cm ps, the roar guard of
Mc.nli! k retreating army, was heavily struck
upon the flank by tho corps of A. P. Hill.
The railroad lay between the contending for
ces, and both parties were anxious to gain
tho shelter of its embankments. Rickctts'
Uattcry was ordered into position at a gallop
but was obliged to cross a plain a fourth of a
mile wido fully exposed to tho enemy's firo.
Heath's Division of Hill's Corns now hast
ened forward in line of battlo towards tho
railroad, and (Jencral Hayes, to counteract
tho movement, wheeling from column into
line, charged with his entire division and
seized tho road before the enemy reached it.
Rickctts disregarding the firo of tho rebel
artillery, immediately opened upon the ene
my h infantry upon tho light with shrapncll
and canister, and soon compelled him to mass
on his centre. I he battery was now in a
critical p siliou. Having galloped away fiom
its supports, it was in danger of being envel
oped by tho rebel lett, which was ranidlv
closing in. Its canister, libeially delivered,
alone saved it. Soon other batteries can o in
to position, and under the fiereo storm of
shell and bullets tho rebel lino gave way in
confuion. Five guns and a larco number of
prisoners wcro taken. Tho Second Corps
was complimented in orders fur its gallantry,
nnd Rickctts' Uattcry, in acknowledgment of
tho part taken in their capture, was directed
to take tho guns to the headquarters of tho
commanding geneiul. The loss in killed and
wounded was nine.
Winter quarters wero taken up near Cul

for rebel digestion, and hiseolumii was forced
to givo way. Advancing through tlio woods
upon tho flanks, ho succeeded in pushing
our lines back beyond tho guns, and they
wcro in danger of being lost; but a fresh bri
gade ww promptly sent in, which restored
our position. After two hours of constant
firing Rrockway's section was withdrawn and
Snyder's substituted. Upon witnessing tho
withdrawal tho enemy made u rush for tho
guns. Unfortunately ono of Snyder's guns
burst on tho first discharge, and Lioutcuant
Campbell's wcro ordered up; but General
Hancock, who had now arrived, onlered tho
battery to bowithdrawn. Later in tho day

Gen. Hancock, in his official report, said :

Iho fight becamo very fierce at once - tho
lines of buttle wcro exceedingly close, and
tho musketry continuous and deadly along
the entire lino. Tho .oction or
Rickctts' Uattcry which moved down the
plank road when Hirney and Getty attacked,
suffered revercly in men and horses. It was
captured, atone time, during the fight, but
was re-taken by detachments from the Four

of Carroll's Hrigado. It was then with
drawn.'' Tho Uattcry participated in all the other
battles of the Campaign, and distinguished
itself at Spottsylvania, North Anna liiver,
tho Tolopotemy, Cold Harbor, and tho vari
ous fights in front of Petersburg.
Soon after reaching Petersburg Capt.
