History:
Lieutenant Richard H. Jackson was "mustered in" on May 4, 1861 as a 19 year old sergeant in the famous Hawkins Zouaves, 9th Infantry New York Volunteers of the Grand Army of the Potomac. The Zouaves were ?among the most famous regiments of the Civil War, known particularly for their "colorful uniforms, precise maneuvers, effectiveness in combat and steady bearing under fire." Lt Jackson's particular division, under the command of the "dashing" Colonel Rush C. Hawkins, rode with General Ambrose Burnside and fought in the September, 1862 Battle of Antietam (known as the
Battle of ? Sharpsburg in the South), the single worst one-day battle in American history with over 23,000 men killed, wounded or missing. Antietam, wherein Lee tried but failed to push the war effort into the North, is dir:ectly credited with convincing Lincoln to enact the Emancipation Proclamation. In October 1'862, Jackson was promoted to 2nd Lieutenant then fought in the Battle of Fredricksburg and the 11Mud March", both losing efforts for General Burnside that resulted in his being dismissed (or resigning, depending upon which history book you read) as commander of the Army of the Potomac. Lt. Hawkins received this letter just after returning from the "Mud March" and before being sent out to the siege of Suffolk, VA in March, 1863. Lt. Jackson was mustered out in May, 1863. It is known that he survived the war and participated in the ceremony to retire the 9th New York Zouaves' colors in April 1899. All told the unit lost "2 Officers and 69 Enlisted men killed and mortally wounded and 2 Officers and 23 Enlisted men by disease." My thanks to George Weinmann and his 9th New York Volunteer Hawkins Zouaves website for the history lesson.

On September 15, 1862, Chickering was placed in command of the 41st Massachusetts Infantry. The regiment was deployed to New Orleans in November 1862 as part of Major General Nathaniel Banks's Louisiana expedition.

During the winter of 1862û1863, the 41st Massachusetts garrisoned Baton Rouge, Louisiana without any significant incident. During April and May 1863, the 41st Massachusetts was part of an expedition to Opelousas, Louisiana to forage for supplies and gather freed slaves by the thousands for recruitment into the Union Army. Chickering was appointed military governor of Opelousas and commanded the Union troops (consisting of seven regiments of infantry) that were part of the expedition.
