Departure of the Whitley Volunteers - May 28, 1861

Columbia City News ~ Friday May 28, 1861

Departure of the Whitley Volunteers. - - On Tuesday evening last, Captain Stough's command took its departure from this place for headquarters, in pursuance of orders received from Adjutant-General J. M. Wallace, the day previous to starting. At about 10 ½ o'clock, the order was given to march for the depot; the utmost enthusiasm prevailed, both soldiers and citizens being in good spirits. Messrs. Myers and Douglas entertained the soldiers and people in appropriate speeches until the cars arrived. It was a sad spectacle to witness the parting of husband and wife, brothers and sisters, fathers and mothers with their sons, the lover with his sweetheart, and friends with their neighbors.
