Reception of Fifty-Fifth Mass. Regiment

This thoroughly disciplined and heroic command … with the smoke of battle hardly yet removed from the garments of its brave members, was received by the people of Boston, this forenoon, with most spontaneous demonstrations of approval.  The regiment came up from Gallops Island about nine o’clock, when a procession was immediately formed at Commercial Wharf… the various units are listed, ending with wounded veterans in carriages.  (List includes officers,  with Capt. George T. Garrison)    (Liberator, September 29, 1865,pg 3)
