There are other leaders among our honored dead whose names and leadership are worthy to be associated with that of our beloved Captain, and those names are already upon the lips of the veterans around me. I mean Lieutenants Vaught and Blair; Sergeants De-Merrett, Denegre, and others of the Fifth Company. Under this flag they led our comrades to victory, and during all of the war showed that they were soldiers without fear, and gentlemen without reproach.

There are still other names both among the dead and the living which deserve to be mentioned as associated with this precious relic. The living are among you. Your eyes and hearts turn to them without naming them.

The officers and men of the Fifth Company feel that the names of all our hallowed dead are now associated. They are all upon the same roll of honor. The living will draw together in closer fellowship with you and with each other and will ever cherish with you the honored memory of ‘our fallen comrades.’
