Jackson. in all that gallant and herole band, there was no spirit more fearless and devoted than Fred. Davidson. The writer of this brief sketch saw him three days before the grand conduct in which he lost his life, and his gaiety and cheerfulness at the prospect of battle could not have been greater if he had been on his way to some high and courtly festival.

His last words were, "Tell my mother that I died in a glorious cause." Le
