From The Journal Of Major Isaac Roach


Isaac Roach's Journal was published in The Pennsylvania magazine..., Volume 17:

 The 23rd regiment, to which I belonged, arrived in a few days, and I began to regret my promotion when I began to make comparisons with officers and men; for I sincerely think there could not be a nobler collection of warm hearts and willing hands than the officers of the 2nd Artillery then at headquarters,say...Spotswood Henry....Davis--Hook and Stewart--not one individual of whom but is borne on the reports as having been distinguished;--Scott, Towson, Biddle and McDonough in every battle that was fought, and McDonough only was killed. I believe all the others were wounded, except Hindman.
