Southern Historical Society Papers, Volume 17. (ed. Reverend J. William Jones), The Monument to General Robert E. Lee. (search)
Till at last there came the second Mightier Revolution's blaze; Till at last there broke the tempest Like a cyclone on the sea, When the lightnings blazed and dazzled And the thunders were set free— And riding on that whirlwind came Majestic Robert Lee. Who—again I ask the question— Who may challenge in debate, With any show of truthfulness, Our former social state Which brought forth more than heroes In their lives supremely great? Not Peter the wild Crusader When bent upon his knee, Not Arthur and his belted knights In the poet's song could be More earnest than those Southern men Who followed Robert Lee. They thought that they were right, and this Was hammered into those Who held that crest all drenched in blood Where the ‘Bloody Angle’ rose. As for all else? It passes by As the idle wind that blows. III. Then stand up, oh my Countrymen! And unto God give thanks, On mountains, and on hillsides, And by sloping river banks— Thank God that you were worthy Of the grand Confed

d he will be in Yankee lines, where pay, food, clothes, quiet, and safety all await him. Think of the tens of thousands of boys subjected to this temptation, and how few yielded. Think of how many never dreamed of such a relief from danger and hardship! But, while I glorify the chivalry, the fortitude, and the fidelity of the private soldier, I do not intend to minimize the valor, the endurance, or the gallantry of those who led them. Memories outlast time. I know that the knights of Arthur's Round Table, nor the Paladins and Peers, roused by the blast of that Font-Arabian horn from Roland at Ronces Valley, did not equal in many traits, or nobility of character, in purity of soul, in gallant, dashing courage the men who led the rank and file of the Confederate armies from lieutenant up to lieutenant-general. There were more rebel brigadiers killed in battle for the Confederacy than in any war that was ever fought. When such men and women have lived such lives, and died such d

tcher's Run. Then commenced the preliminaries of the retreat, strong guards near Burgess's Mill, where the plank road crossed our line. On the 28th of March the firing became hot and heavy, we felt that something had given way on our left. Sheridan's mounted infantry (miscalled cavalry) was bearing on Five Forks, and General Pickett was advanced to that point at the head of Gravelly Run fork, on the White Oak road; and General Meade's corps of 25,000 men was advancing in our front across Arthur's creek. Ransom's and Hunton's brigades were taken from our division, to reinforce Pickett at Five Forks and Evans' old brigade, of South Carolina, then commanded by General W. H. Wallace, and our brigade were alone left at Hatcher's Run. On the 29th March, our brigade was ordered into line of battle at the point near Burgess' Mill, where what is called the Military road, forks with the plank road to Dinwiddie C. H., and General Wise was ordered to advance quickly on the Military road, to

of heroic endeavor, so long will Virginia men and women be ready to hear of the words and the deeds of Virginia's heroic sons, and therefore ready and glad to hear how valorous and how virtuous, how great and how grand in every thought and action was the Virginian of whom I speak to-night—to know in what awesome Titanic mould was cast that quiet professor who once did his duty here; that silent stranger whom no man knew until the fire of God fell upon him in the battlefield, as it did upon Arthur—the fire by which Sir Launce-lot knew him for his king—the fire that like the live coal from off the altar touched the lips of Jackson and brought from them that kingly voice which the eagle of victory knew and obeyed. For a king was Stonewall Jackson, if ever royalty, anointed as by fire, appeared among men. When Egypt, or Persia, or Greece, or Rome was the world; when the fame of a king reached the borders of his own dominion, but scarcely crossed them; when a great conqueror was known<

y the State and Federal Constitutions. There is no want of power. The passing of the Confederacy. That is a masterpiece—the touching Idyl of the Passing of Arthur. The king, beaten in his last battle, and drawing near to death, commanded his knight to take the blade, which would be known wherever he was sung in after time,e lips the despairing cry: Woe is me, authority forgets a dying king, laid widowed of his power. Shamed to obedience, the knight threw the blade in the lake, and Arthur, when told of the arm that rose up from the mists and caught it, sure it would never again be seen by mortal eyes, passed to be king of the dead. Our Arthur paArthur passed to the island valley of Avilion with no cry on his lips or thought in his heart that authority forgets a king, laid widowed of his power; for here the love of a people touched away the scar of the fetters, and crowned him king again. As the monument, whose foundation he laid, crowned in its finished glory with the statues, i

t bidder. Have there not been too many auctions in similar cases? The Board also adopted an elaborate report, drawn up by Mr. Jefferson, which was, with some amendments, signed by all the twenty-one members present and transmitted to the legislature. Mr. Jefferson's signature was the first; Judge Brockenbrough's was the fourth. Thus our now famous University may be regarded as having been launched by this august assemblage. Some years afterwards, one of Judge Brockenbrough's brothers (Arthur) was its Proctor. A son of the Proctor, Wm. H. Brockenbrough, studied law there under Prof. John A. G. Davis, and settled in Florida, of which he was appointed Territorial Governor, and where he became distinguished as a lawyer and a judge. He also represented Florida in Congress. Thus Virginia has produced three judges Brockenbrough; and Dr. Austin Brockenbrough was a valuable member of the county court of Essex, over which he frequently presided. A daughter of the Proctor married Senat
