The Regiment, having reached a good position, is halted, faced about, and aids in checking the enemy's advance, much to the satisfaction of the wounded, who are making their way to Mt.

"And Ardennes waves above them her green leaves, Dewy with Nature's tear drops, as they pass; Grieving, if aught inanimate e'er grieves, Over the unreturning brave: alas!

Byron.
