bearing among their men which, checking familiarity, inspired respect, the regular service never had superiors. To dwell upon their achievements, to recall their wellremembered and well-beloved forms, were an easy as it would be an instructive task; indeed, even now I cannot shut out their presence. They are here to the eye of memory in all their bloom of manly strength; and yet they are there, where they fell. Goodwin, so weak from sickness that he was carried to the battle-line of Cedar Mountain, to fall with his men on either hand; Dwight, the brave, the ardent, and faithful, conspicuous in the most exacting demands of his rank; Savage and Cary, Abbott, Williams, and Robeson, in the tornado of fire that swept their heroic souls from earth,--all falling where only the brave fall; Mudge and Shaw, with youth, with frank and manly hearts, leading their regiments into the very jaws of hell without flinching or faltering.

Savage, Abbott, and Cary, Williams, Goodwin, and Perkins, would not have faltered if before them had been mirrored their own silent forms clasped in the cold embrace of death on the field of Cedar Mountain; nor would the rank and file that made so rich the history of the Second, with their sublime courage on many historic fields, have put away the cup from their lips, but would have drunk it even to the very dregs. It was on the twenty-first
