since been organized, bringing up the total number to near 260. It is to be hoped that the entire South will, at no distant day, be covered by the camps of those Confederate veterans who have survived the casualties of the bloody conflict (1861-1865) and the ravages of time. It is of great importance that each camp should be thoroughly organized, and its organization placed in permanent form by publication.

ver one-half of the 604 students at this institution in the spring of 1861; while there joined the first army of invasion, but 73 out of the 896 students on the roll of great Harvard the same year. It gave to the Confederate service, from 1861 to 1865, more than 2,000 men of our University, of whom it buried in soldiers's graves more than 400— while but 1,040 Harvard men served in the armies and navies of the United States during the four years of the war, and only 155 of these lost their lives past. The look will do you good, through and through. One thing at least is clear. If there is any part or portion of your life, in which you were where you should have been and did what you should have done—it is the great Olympiad of 1861 to 1865, when you followed Joe Johnson and Robert Lee. And what a life that following opened to us. Every experience, every effort, every emotion, was deep with all its depth, and strong with all its strength, and strained the soul. Its perils and its

se the bulk of the extra duty men in battle, as any experienced soldier knows. General Humphreys' Virginia Campaign, 1864-1865, page 409, speaking of such a claim, says: The column present for duty equipped, is intended to give the number of enliearly all conditions and circumstances that fight with the soldier and give power and soul to armies. The winter of 1864-5 was one of marked severity, making duty of any kind very arduous.

The next day the Confederate troops extended the line to the Appomattox river, but not without sharp fighting and some severe losses of men and officers. The lodgment at Howlett's, however, as heretofore described, had secured the key to the situation, and this enabled the Confederates to force back Butler into his entrenchment all along the line, where he was kept closely shut up until the lines were finally evacuated in 1865. Failure on the part of the Fifteenth Regiment to drive back the enemy at Howlett's and hold that position, as it did, on the evening of the 16th of June, might have worked disastrous consequences to the Confederates the next day, for the position was a strong one, and well fortified. It was flanked by the river, with precipitous banks, and could be guarded by Federal gun-boats, so that it would have been well nigh impregnable if properly defended by brave and adequate forces.

An interesting address by Colonel William Lamb, of Norfolk, Virginia, written at the request of Cape Fear Camp, United Confederate Veterans, of Wilmington—The truth of history Graphically told. Colonel William Lamb, of Norfolk, Virginia, commandant of Fort Fisher during the terrific bombardment there during the civil war, read his address on Fort Fisher last week at the Young Men's Christian Association auditorium to a large and appreciative audience. He came here at the invitation of Cape Fear Camp, No. 254, United Confederate Veterans, and his address is the beginning of a series to be given under the auspices of that Camp. On the platform with Colonel Lamb were Major James Reilly, one of the heroes of Fort Fisher, Colonel William L. DeRosset, Mr. James C. Stevenson, and the Hon. Alfred M. Waddell.

In the latter year I entered the Confederate Navy as lieutenant. During the years 1863-1864-1865 I was the superintendent of the Confederate States Naval Academy. The steamer Patrick Henry was the school-ship and the seat of the academy.

Several years ago I read in the papers an account of a box being left with a widow lady who lived, in 1865, near the pontoon bridge across the Savannah river. It was to this effect: The lady stated that on May 3, 1865, a party of gentlemen on their way from Abbeville to Washington, Ga., stopped at her house, and were a long time in consultation in her
