Journey of the Captives - Officers in Boston

Friday, February 28, 1862

The regiment rejoiced over the news of the arrival of Colonel William Raymond Lee, Major John Revere, and Surgeon Edward Revere in Boston on parole. The terms of parole did not allow them to rejoin the regiment until their exchange for Confederate officers of equivalent rank.1
