efore Pickett Camp, U. C. V., August 31, 1896. [Sergeant Charles Theodore Loehr, of German birth, has proven himself as good a citizen of Richmond as he was valiant as a soldier, as his comrades, to a man, attest. At the organization of George E. Pickett Camp Confederate Veterans, he was elected its Commander, and his zeal in its objects and benefactions, is still as animating and effective in good works as at the beginning of his inspiring connection with it. He is held widely in warm regaMay 20, 1864, Kemper's old brigade, with the exception of the 3rd Virginia Regiment, marched through the streets of Richmond. There was nothing extraordinary in this for the movement of troops during those days was constant, and the veterans of Pickett's Division would hardly have been distinguished from other commands that preceded or followed them to join the army of Lee in its struggles with Grant. Yet, there was one thing that might have attracted the spectator's attention in viewing the

was more than any troops could endure. The brigades of Pender yielding ground, began to move back slowly and in good order, not breaking ranks even. I was asked by my aids if they should rally the men and renew the charge. When I looked to Pickett's position and could plainly see that the conflict was ended there, as but a few stragglers could be seen. Hence it was mere folly for our small force to continue the fight, and I said to my aid: No; the best thing the men can do, is to get out of this, and let them go. I know these brigades were the last troops to leave the field, and as we moved slowly back, but few of Pickett's men were visible. In reviewing the events preceding the battle, and the occurrences during the three days, we cannot fail to be impressed with the cause of embarrassment to General Lee, and the reasons for his failure to obtain a decided and useful victory. For the proof is abundant that Gettysburg fight was a drawn battle, though with General Lee in

ven Pines for the Confederates being followed by inaction at Fair Oaks the next day, and the result a check, but not an overwhelming defeat for the United States troops as it might have been. The testimony of the Records of the Rebellion, in which is all the evidence of reports of commanders throughout the field, shows unmistakably that the same sluggishness and want of response to orders, which lost the battle of Gettysburg, by the failure of Longstreet to move in time to the support of Pickett and Pettigrew, was at fault there. General G. W. Smith shows (Battles and Leaders of the Civil War, Vol. II, 241) that Whiting's division, advancing at 6 A. M., was blocked by Longstreet's troops, and in spite of herculean efforts, message after message having gone forward, was not permitted to advance until 4 P. M. He had been finally held in reserve by General Johnston, in case Longstreet was in danger of being overpowered, and who now was supposed to be overwhelmingly engaged. But,

er depreciate. He came at the call of his State, the earthly tribunal before which it was our faith all men should bow. He believed, and had been reared to believe, that the future of the Republic demanded but one flag between the seas. Not Pickett's charge at Gettysburg, nor Cleburne's at Franklin, outshone in vain but glorious valor, the lustre of the assault at Marye's Heights, and his mad charges at Spotsylvania and Cold Harbor. He had grander courage yet-he did not mock us at Appomathe closest attention. He spoke as follows: Mr. Chairman, Ladies and Gentlemen. Those who followed glorious young Pelham, that true son of thunder, and his terrible artillery over the hills and through the valleys of Virginia, or went with Pickett and Kemper and Armistead up ugainst the hurricane of fire, lead and iron on Round Top, need no monumental marble, to recall the memories of that thrilling era; and those who through the long and bloody hours hurled themselves against the mercile

uld be by ticket, but the suggestion was not entertained, and it was decided to open the doors of the church at 1:30 o'clock. By express request of Dr. Hoge the obsequies were simple and unostentatious. The pall-bearers were chiefly from the membership of his church. No military cortege followed, although many organizations solicited the privilege. Yet the loved remains were met at the gates of beautiful Hollywood by the sered inmates of the Soldiers' Home and by the Veterans of Lee and Pickett camps—through whose parted ranks, with bowed and bared heads, the mournful line passed and repassed. The funeral took place Sunday afternoon, January 8th, from the church of which Dr. Hoge had been pastor for over half a century, and was attended by a great concourse of people. The service was quite simple. From the many tributes to the memory of Dr. Hoge and the several analyses of his gifts and characteristics, the following may be cited: Rev. Richard McIlwaine, D. D., President
