Countermarching.

This embraces the whole of that part of the procession which formed on Broad street, and the above is the order in which the march was taken up.

The veterans and some other organizations had formed on Main street between Eighth and Seventeenth, and when the head of the column turned into Main from Nineteenth the veterans sent up a tremendous yell, which the assembled throng on the sidewalks supplemented with unstinted applause.

The veterans were formed on the north side of Main street and had a perfect view of the passing militia. When the left of the column was brought up the veterans and different societies fell into line as they were reached, and an opening presented itself, and the column was gradually lengthened. It was never in a complete state, for before all of the veterans had fallen in the head of the Military division had reached a point way upon Franklin street, where they stacked arms on the north side and sat in the shade and waited for the veterans to pass in review. The best opportunity, therefore, to see the pageant in its greatest beauty was on Main street, or Franklin east of First.
