. . . you are part of a detail formed this morning consisting of 49 men from companies A, C, E, and H of the 18th Infantry Regiment, you are told you will relieve a wood train under attack on Sullivan Hill for the third time in three weeks. On December 6, Col. Carrington and Capt. Fetterman fought a day long battle, in which Lt. Bingham and Sgt. Bowers are killed. On the 19th Capt. Powell, under orders from Col. Carrington, did not pursue the attackers over Lodge Trail Ridge, when relieving the wood train.You are dressed in a Great-Coat, dark blue Blouse, sky blue Trousers, Jefferson boots and a fatigue cap. You are carrying a slow-firing Springfield muzzle-loader, 40 rounds of ammunition and a bayonet. Capt. Fetterman, the detail commander, is carrying a saber and revolver. The NCO's also carry swords.You are excited about the detail but wish you had more training with your rifle.
