‘ [157] you have deserved well of your country. You have been such soldiers as the world has never seen. Three years have passed since first we met in the Boston mountains and marched through the driving snow to attack the enemy's army. From that time to this you have been voluntary exiles from the land of your birth and the homes of all you love. You were a mighty host then—you are now a remnant of battle-scarred, toil-worn veterans. But your hearts are brave and true, your eyes are bright and your noble purposes are unshaken.’
