All That They Want Now is Their Pay
[16 August 1861]
The Anderson Zouaves
It is expected that this regiment now stationed at Riker’s Island
will leave for the seat of war on Saturday. The men have received arms and all
their equipments, with the exception of haversacks. All that they want now is
their pay: that being forthcoming, they will immediately march.
