Surgical and Gynoecological Association, at the meeting held in Nashville, Tenn., November 13, 1889. by Hunter McGUIRE, M. D., Ll.D., Late Medical Director, Stonewall Jackson (2d) Corps, Army of Northern Virginia, C. S. A. Mr. President and Fellows of the Southern Surgical and Gynoecological Association, Ladies and Gentlemen: what poet like Poe, what scientist like Matthew F. Maury, what statesman like Jefferson, what jurist like Benjamin, what divine like Hoge, what soldier like Stonewall Jackson, what surgeon like Sims? And the women—how can I describe them! They were as cultured as they were refined; they were as beautiful as they were queenly, thelieve, let the deeds of arms that have passed into history speak. Examine the details of the well-contested battlefields and see if such a declaration is true. Jackson, Lee, Johnson, Claiborne, Stuart and Forrest! What tender thoughts, what hallowed associations gather around the names of these bright stars in the Southern cons

efforts were made, but nothing had been done for his advancement when, at the end of two months, the Major returned to his battalion. He was not fully recovered, and President Davis advised him to go hone with his father (they had called together to pay their respects), and keep quiet until he was entirely well. The Major quickly replied, I shall keep quiet, Mr. President, as long as yourself and the army do, but no longer. Very soon afterwards he returned to his command, and was with Jackson in all that brilliant campaign which resulted in the discomfiture, successively, of Fremont, Shields, and Banks. He was always among the foremost in the fight, taking batteries, and driving the enemy from his strongest position. The newspapers of the day seldom give an account of a battle in which his name and daring are not conspicuously mentioned. After all his wonderful escapes, our patriot hero and martyr fell in the bloody battle of Gaines' Mill, near Cold Harbor, on the 27th of J

the nullification of South Carolina in 1832.

n 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. H. Anderson, Pemberton, Early, Kirby Smith, Longstreet, Hampton, S. D. Lee, A. P. Stewart, Buckner, Wheeler, and Gordon were their lieutenants.

The future will honor him. The restless tides of humanity will rush hither and thither over the land of battles. The ages will sweep on, and Rift the hills, roll the waters, fl

57; left there to accept a commission as second lieutenant in the First Georgia State Infantry, February 1st, 1861; was appointed March 30th, 1861, second lieutenant Confederate States Army, and assigned to duty as recruiting officer at Fort Pulaski; he subsequently served, with zeal and efficiency, as adjutant of the Twelfth Georgia regiment of infantry; as Captain and Chief of Staff to General Edward Johnson; as Acting Chief of Artillery on the Staff of General Thomas Jonathan (Stonewall) Jackson, and, finally, as Colonel Commandant of the Twelfth Georgia Infantry. His ability and judgment commanded confidence, respect, and regard with superior and subordinate. His heart was warmed with the ardor of the generous Southern clime; he was nerved by a heritage of self-reliance and of affectionate Providence; he had all the pride of the inborn warrior; he had been under martial training, which made him the more, a disciplinarian. Paramount to circumstance or education, he had intui

Soon the fort when old friends come to us asking for those they knew and loved long ago and to whom we can only say, They are with us no longer; they have gone to join Lee and Jackson in the eternal camping-ground.

The great day has arrived—the a speech-maker, but I cannot refrain from the expression of our sincere thanks for the memento presented. The memory of Robert E.

He was presented to President Jackson, and we may well believe the story that mbraced that small but heroic band with which Jackson had just defeated three armies, filled the Fe of the mighty blow he had dealt. He hurried Jackson to Gordonsville to meet Pope's threatening foth. But their valor was unavailing. As Stonewall Jackson said, his men sometimes failed to carry at a single blow, in a brief conference with Jackson, on the evening of the 1st of May. An eye- thunder-bolt of war, such a Titanic force as Jackson, instantly devised that immortal flank march the audacity of that flank march assigned to Jackson—for the fierce and determined front attack lehe Confederate commander's heroic character.

ry forefront of the battle. At First Manassas Generals Beauregard and Johnston, at the crisis of the battle, both led their men, battle-flag in hand. Albert Sydney Johnston, whom President Davis always regarded as the ablest soldier of the war, fell leading a victorious charge at Shiloh, and in the execution of that brilliant strategy that had so far succeeded, and which, had he been spared an hour longer, would have resulted in the capture or annihilation of Grant's whole army. Stonewall Jackson was often seen on the advance skirmish line of the army, was ever found in the very thickest of the fight, and when shot down by his own men (who would have died rather than injure a button on his old gray coat) was returning from a bold reconnoisance beyond his advanced pickets. Jeb Stuart fell when leading a heroic charge against immense odds, which prevented Sheridan from riding into Richmond that day, and crowned a brilliant career with a glorious death. A. P.
