A word for the 69TH N. Y. Regiment.--An article in the Memphis
closes thus :--“
No Southerner but feels that the 69th maintained the old reputation of Irish valor, on the wrong side through misguidance, and not through treachery to the old cause; and not one of us but feels that the day must come when a true understanding of the principle at issue will range their fearless hearts in line with their brethren of the South
All honor to the 69th, even in its error.
