You have engaged in an arduous struggle. You have prosecuted it; you intend to prosecute it; you have stood unflinchingly before the enemy; you have proved yourselves patriotic, able, and tried soldiers, and you are entitled to the meed of praise. I, your commander, this day feel that it is a proud duty to extend to you the hand of approbation, and to declare that you are worthy of your country. Soldiers, you have undergone labor; you have faced the enemy; you have stood without retreating before their fire; you have borne the inclemencies of the season, and you are ready to advance with that grand army of which you are a part. Your country opens its arms, receives you to its bosom.
