by a people and a soldiery whom he held together with an iron will and hurled like a flaming thunderbolt at their foes. The Cabinet of Jefferson Davis. In his Cabinet he gathered the foremost civilians of the land— Toombs, Hunter, Benjamin, Bragg, Watts, Davis, Memminger, Trenholm, Walker, Randolph, Seddon, Breckenridge, Mallory, Reagan. Good men and true were these, regardful of every duty. His Generals and his armies. To the leadership of his soldiers whom did he delegate? If soioner could throw upon the canvas Jefferson Davis in the midst of those chiefs whom he created, what grander knighthood could history assemble? Robert E. Lee, Albert Sidney Johnston, Joseph E. Johnston, G. T. Beauregard, Samuel Cooper, and Braxton Bragg were generals of the full rank. Stonewall Jackson, Forrest, Polk, Hardee, Ewell, D. H. Hill, A. P. Hill, Hood, Richard Taylor, Holmes, R.

ing spectacle of the unsurpassed valor of the Confederate soldier, but a matchless exhibition of composure and magnanimity in the Confederate commander. The aggressive campaign failed, but neither the army nor its general was shaken. We find them during the remainder of 1863 facing their old foe with undiminished spirit. And soon Lee gives proof of equal firmness, enterprise, and generosity in detaching Longstreet's corps to strike a decisive blow, eight hundred miles away, by the side of Bragg at Chickamauga. The annals of war do not exhibit a more unselfish act. How shall I briefly describe the added titles to enduring fame with which the campaign of the next year, 1864, invested our great leader? Who that lived through that time can forget the awful hush of those calm spring days, which ushered in the tremendous outburst of the Federal attack along a thousand miles of front? In every quarter, at one and the same moment, the Confederacy felt the furious impact of a whole

ed them both to the rear, but illustrates the point that all of our Confederate leaders, from our chivalric, heroic President, down to the subordinates, were accustomed to say to their men not Go on! but Come on! Thus it came to pass that the list of our dead Generals were fearfully large, and that of those who survive, the large majority of them carry badges of honor in wounds received during the war. In peace. And since the war numbers of them have crossed the river— Lee, Cooper, Bragg, D. H. Hill, Forrest, Cheatham, Pendleton, Chilton, Hood, Wise, William Smith—and scores of others went before, and but a few months ago our grand old Chief and only President followed after. Thank God! many of them yet survive, and scores of them come to-day to pay tribute to their loved and honored old Chief, while many others though absent in body are present in spirit. We have been at some pains to compile an accurate list of surviving Confederate generals with their present resid
