2. The Infantry of the Army of Northern Virginia:

They marched through long and stormy nights;
     They bore the brunt of an hundred fights,
And their courage never failed.
     Hunger and cold and the summer heat
They felt on the march and long retreat,
     Yet their brave hearts never quailed.

Colonel J. C. Gibson. 3. The Artillery of the Army of Northern Virginia:

There deeds have on their Country's page
     Their names immortal made.

Colonel Stribling. 4. The Cavalry of the Army of Northern Virginia:

They fought and bled till their work was done;
They should wear the meed their valor won.

Major H. B. McClellan. 5. The Women of the South:

Our Spartan women, born in dust,
     Around their country's broken shrine,
True as their souls are noble-just,
     Pure as their deeds have been divine.

Judge F. R. Farrar. 6. Our Dead: Who died in a righteous cause, and

To teach that right is more than might,
And justice more than mail.

Rev. M. D. Hoge, D. D. 7. Maryland:

She met her sisters on the plain,
     “Sic semper,” was the proud refrain,
That baffled minions back again,
     Maryland, my Maryland.

General George H. Steuart.

The speeches were, generally, admirable, and some of them very fine, and the whole occasion one of deepest interest and enjoyment.
