Company ‘K,’ thirty-fourth Virginia.

Among the troops gathered here to honor the memory of our departed chieftain none displayed greater alacrity or enthusiasm than this gallant old company. Thirty-four strong they mustered for the unveiling ceremonies, with letters of regret from the absent. In the spring of 1861, full of hope, they went into service. All through the fiery ordeal they bore their part, and when Appomattox came they were there with thinned ranks but with brave hearts.

Chaplain P. C. Robert came all the way from St. Louis to share the joys of the occasion.

The surviving officers are: A. F. Bagby, Josiah Ryland, and William T. Haynes, all of whom were present.

[A committee consisting of Norvell Ryland, Theodore Courtney, and B. F. Cooke, made every arrangement for the convenience and comfort of all during their stay, for which a hearty vote of thanks was passed.]

Henderson, North Carolina, veterans, Colonel W. H. Check commander.

Washington, North Carolina, veterans, C. R. Barker commanding. Thirty-fourth Virginia Infantry, Captain Bagby commanding. Wise Brigade, Colonel J. T. Goode commanding.
