It has since been shown that over eight hundred thousand lads of seventeen or less were found in the ranks of the Union army, that over two hundred thousand were no more than sixteen, that there were even one hundred thousand on the Union rolls who were no more than fifteen. Boys of sixteen or less could be enlisted as musicians. Every company was entitled to two field musicians; that made twenty to the average war-time regiment. There were 1981 regiments—infantry, cavalry, and artillery—organized during the war, and in addition there were separate companies sufficient in number to make nearly seventy more, or two thousand and fifty regiments.

It need not be said that figures or abstract statements are utterly inadequate to express the kind of service which the ladies of Virginia are rendering to our army. Tabular views of hospital practice are here indeed vitiated by the fact that most of the soldiers who have died in the hospitals were allowed to lie in camp without such means and appliances as the sick require, until desperately ill or even in a dying condition.
