Was very popular as a young man, securing his com. as Capt. from Gov. Hancock. It is said on one occasion, when drilling his command, they were surrounded by the lookers on with the purpose of creating confusion. Instantly the order was given to "form a hollow square," followed by, "charge bayo- nets, march."
