Never were such crowds seen in Richmond as thronged Broad and Franklin streets during the passage of the procession; but even this [257] imposing spectacle dwindled into insignificance when compared with the assemblage at the monument grounds when the people in waiting there were joined by the procession.

Monument avenue is 140 feet wide, and it was filled from the pedestal to Lombardy street—three hundred yards—while out of the roadway upon the green fields there stood hundreds of crowded vehicles.
