“Camp of the Garibaldi Guards, Colonel D’utassy, near Roche’s Mills, Va., Potomac River in the distance. The fine body of men called the Garibaldi Guards were remarkable for the number of trained men in its ranks, at least one-half having fought in European battlefields. It comprised Frenchmen, Italians, Hungarians, Germans, Swiss, Irish, Scotch, and a few English who had served in the Crimean War. When reviewed by the President, on their arrival at Washington, they were highly commended. They formed a part of Blenker’s brigade, and were stationed near Roche’s Mills, in a most picturesque spot, rendered more so by the foreign tastes of some of the Garibaldians."— Frank Leslie, 1896
