Marched on crutches.

One of the most touching things in the incidents of the great day was to see maimed soldiers—a bandaged eye, an empty sleeve, a wooden leg—in the procession. Mr. A. J. Blackburn, of this city, who lost his leg while gallantly serving in the famous old Thirteenth Virginia regiment (A. P. Hill's old regiment), marched on his crutches the whole distance, and was vociferously cheered along the route.
