8 "...the regiment moved on the 3d of May on the WildernessCampaign, and on the morning of the 5th, while on the march, was suddenly attacked, before the line of battle could be formed. The One Hundred and Thirty-ninth was in advance, and received the first shock. The enemy, who at first seemed to be retreating, was followed up; but he soon made a determined stand, and fought desperately, the Ninety-eighth holding its ground for two hours under a furious musketry fire, and until its ammunition was all spent, when it was relieved. The loss in this day's fight was one officer, Lieutenant Charles H. Wiedman, and eight men killed, and four officers and fifty-two men wounded".

"The men slept in the rifle pits at night, and in the morning went forward, past their dead comrades, still lying where they fell, and followed the enemy up for nearly two miles, when he was found behind breastworks, and was attacked. By a movement in concentrated force upon the flank, he compelled the Union line to fall back in some confusion. General Getty was here wounded, General Wheaton succeeding to the command of the division, Colonel Ballier to that of the brigade, and Lieutenant Colonel Kohler of the regiment".

10 "At its entrance into service, the regiment numbered one thousand and ten men; in the summer of 1862, and subsequently, bodies of recruits were added to it; it was now reduced to three hundred and twenty-nine. Of this number two hundred and twenty-nine re-enlisted for a second term,and were mustered on the 23d. The promised furlough, which had operated as a strong inducement to re-enlist, was long delayed".

"At the close of December, the brigade was ordered to Harper's Ferry. The weather was intensely cold, and the movement, by rail, in box cars, and in open trucks without fire, was attended with great suffering. From Harper's Ferry the brigade marched to Halltown, where the Ninety-eighth was detached and sent forward to Charlestown. Colonel Ballier was made commander of the post at Charlestown, and the companies were comfortably quartered in unoccupied buildings about the town."

because it was the most western town in the Colony.

29 "Mrs. Emma W. Lucas, widow of Oliver J. Lucas, died at her home, this city, on Friday of last week, January 31, three days after the anniversary of her birth. Her death occurred after an illness extending over about ten months.
Mrs. Lucas was the daughter of the late William H. and Margarette Ewell Matthews, and was born in Davenport, Iowa, January 28, 1855. Very early in life, the family came to Eastern Virginia, and subsequently Mr. and Mrs. Lucas came to Pocomoke City, taking up their residence here in 1893.
The deceased is survived by three daughters: Mrs. William Wigton of Yeadon, Pa; and Mrs. Willaim S. Bowen and Mrs. Samuel Crockett, of Pocomoke City. She is also survived by six grandchildren and eleven great grandchildren.
Funeral services were held on Monday, conducted by Rev. Mr. Leister, of Bethany Methodist Church, assisted by Rev. E. L. Bunce, former pastor of the same church. Interment in the cemetery of Bethany. The pallbearers were: Messrs. Paul Ewell, Frank Hudson, George Smullin, T. Pratt McAllen, William E. Bounds and Dr. R. L. Hall.
Mrs. Lucas was well known and highly esteemed in this community. She belonged of course, to a past generation and has seen many changes both local and elsewhere. Her people belonged to an age when the modern methods of transportation would have been pronounced miracles, had they been mentioned. She could recall when her father and his brother drove from the Midwest to their Eastern home in the traditional horse and buggy, and, of course, deemed it at that time no hardship. People with such background are, indeed, a loss when death removes them from this mechanical age. Much of the romance of living is removed and people lapse into a routine which does not compare, in the minds of many, with the ease and freedom of former years."
