Doc. 39. Colonel Jackson's call to the young men of Kentucky.
We invite attention to the Military Call we publish. No word of ours can lend force to the simple but kindling appeal. It will stir the hearts of the loyal youth of our commonwealth like the soaring notes of a bugle. The magnitude and grandeur of the cause at stake, the exciting and peculiar solemnity of the present juncture in the mighty struggle, the sudden and unprovoked invasion of Kentucky by the Confederate forces, and the capacity and courage, the glorious manhood, and the lofty and spotless honor of the leader who here summons his youthful compatriots to the field, conspire to invest the call with a resistless charm. Young men of Kentucky! read the call, and answer it. Rally under the flag of your country for the protection of your State.--Louisville Journal, Sept. 7.
