Virginia military Institute Cadets.

The cadets from the Virginia Military Institute, a magnificent-looking lot of young fellows, assembled on Broad street—right resting on the east side of Seventh. There were 190 cadets in line.

This section of the column was headed by the Institute band of eight pieces—H. Krause leader. Major Duncan, commandant of cadets, was in command, and the other Institute officers were Captains Ford and Mason and Adjutant Lewis. The four companies were immediately in charge of Cadet-Captains Angel, McCormick, Harden, and Taliaferro. [272]

The cadets attracted attention all along the line of march, and were heartily applauded for their beautiful marching and drilling.
