red from the active list of the army, that I would engage in political work as an example to my children, and also as I wished to carry out my theory as to the importance of citizenship. I began by canvassing Vermont and then Maine, making many addresses in different parts of those two States. Suddenly I received a dispatch from my friend, General R. A. Alger, entreating me to join his special car in Chicago for a political tour. There with General Sickles, General Thomas J. Stewart, Corporal Tanner, and a few others I joined General Alger. We were designated a little later by the opposition as The Wrecks of the Civil War. We made a remarkable campaign, carefully scheduled so as to pass from place to place and give addresses, sometimes from the rear platform of our car, but mostly from stands arranged for us near the railway line. We began habitually about seven o'clock in the morning and met audiences, as a rule, every half hour during the day, and often had meetings that laste

We cannot understand how Corporal Tanner expects us old fellows in Gray to love anll-treatment of the Federal prisoners. Corporal Tanner denies that his government offered immuni. I wish instead of this bitter diatribe Corporal Tanner had undertaken to give a fair, square andis unhealthy climate in the South. I beg Corporal Tanner to explain to us why this was. He says thand made medicines contraband of war, and Corporal Tanner himself says that our soldiers when captuen knew better and simply resented it. Corporal Tanner holds the Confederate government responsibe-forgotten horrors. Who is to blame, Corporal Tanner? My dear friend, the thing that irrita this time. Next week I want to inform Corporal Tanner of some reasons why the South is solid, a[3 more...]
