Illustrator and artist Thomas Nast immortalized the 7th Regiment’s triumphant departure on April 19, 1861, from New York City in his largest painting. The artist depicted a patriotic, flag–festooned scene as the regiment passed in review on Broadway before Major Robert Anderson, the hero of Fort Sumter, South Carolina. Although he filled the image with an air of excitement, Nast nonetheless included saddened spectators, harbingers of times to come. - Seventh Regiment Fund

Meanwhile, at dawn, the reveille had roused the main body of the regiment. Blankets and overcoats were rolled up and strapped upon knapsacks ; canteens were filled with water tinged with vinegar ; three days' rations, consisting of six navy biscuit and pieces of raw salt pork or beef, were served to each man; cartridges were distributed, and guns loaded, for the start. It was a delicious April morning, and the fragrance of the apple-blossoms and the fresh green grass filled the air. No word coming from the advance, the regiment left the Naval Academy soon after seven, and threaded the queer, old-fashioned little city of Annapolis.

Broadway...was pulsing with an intensity unexampled in the city's history. . .Splendid banners flapped in the wind from every larger house-top, or curled from fresh flag-staffs; pennants streamed from ropes athwart all the streets of the city, and from all mast-heads in the harbor; facades were swathed with broad bands of red, white, and blue; thusly New York marched to war!

"I resided in New York some five or six years ago, and often witnessed, with admiration and pride, the soldierly bearing and proficiency, in all martial exercises, of the Seventh Regiment; and afterward, in Chicago, when my comrades here did me the honor to call upon me to take command of them, I set before myself and them the Seventh Regiment as our model—this is the secret of our success." -Elmer Ellsworth, Colonel - National Zouave Cadets July 1860 (From Clark)

The Regiment at the close of the year 1860 was on the floodtide of prosperity. Strong in numbers, full of spirits and enthusiasm, and safely intrenched in its new and splendid armory, its future was bright and cloudless. The threatening condition of the political affairs of the country only added to its strength and power, for it brought the most intelligent and patriotic young men of the city to its ranks. But great events, destined to materially influence its fortunes, were hastening to a crisis, and the year 1861 was to be memorable in its history. - Clark
