Orr warns Col. Trowbridge that his troops are in danger, and shortly afterwards, while on a train bound for Newberry, the regiment's car is separated from the engine, stranded on a trestle bridge, and fired upon. They are rescued when one of Trowbridge's men, a Sgt. Brown (there were two Sgt. Browns in the 33rd Colored Infantry, a Frederick Brown and an Isaiah Brown), forces the engineer to go back for the car. The regiment undergoes a difficult march from Newberry to Orangeburg, and from there is transported by train to Charleston, where they are stationed at several harbor forts. In Charleston Trowbridge meets with the new governor, James L. Orr, and receives a visit from General Grant. The reminiscences include a transcription of Trowbridge's letter of farewell, commendation, and advice to his soldiers as freedmen. Finally, Trowbridge recounts two reunions with Sgt. Brown, the first an accidental meeting in 1884, and the second, six years later, during a trip to Beaufort, S.C. His reminiscences end with a brief report on the fate of Manse Jolly
