New Jersey, and Governor Fort, of New Jersey, accepted it and transferred it to the Fifteenth Regiment Association.
The acceptance speech was made by Theodore F. Swayze, after the singing of Columbia.
The principal address of the occasion was made by State Senator Joseph S. Freelinghuysen, of Raritan, N. J., who received much applause.
In referring to the Fifteenth Regiment, Senator Freelinghuysen said:
It was recruited from five of the northern counties—Rundeston, Sussex, Somersex, Warren and Morris.
They came from plow and workshop, from desk and pulpit, the flower of mankind, eager at their country's call.
With banners flying they marched peacefully away from Flemington, N. J., most of them never to return, but all destined to engage in a conflict unparalleled in the annals of war. They fought from Fredericksburg to Appomattox: in more than twenty-four conflicts, such well known battles as Gettysburg, Wilderness, Chancellorsville and Spotsylvania.
