Thanksgiving Sept 26, 1861


In September of 1861 William Wanders was camped with the rest of the 20th Regiment of Massachusetts at Camp Foster along the shores of the Potomoca River in Maryland.

The following day was Governor Andrew’s Thanksgiving Day, and we observed it by omitting our usual drills, which was apleasant relief. (from The Twentieth Regiment of Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry 1861-1865, George A. Bruce)
