Great Activity Prevails

[4 June 1861]


Anderson Zouaves.


Four companies belonging to this regiment are quartered at Snediker's, Long Island, the remaining six companies are in barracks at the Newark Bay Hotel, N. J. Great activity prevails and the men are rapidly becoming efficient in drill. Mr A. V. Meekes, of the Seventh Regiment, has accepted a Captaincy in this corps: a number of his former comrades, unwilling to remain inactive, have placed themselves under his command. Col. Riker states that his men are all ready, and are anxiously awaiting marching orders.
