The procession appears.

It was exactly 1:50 o'clock when the notes of the Stonewall-Brigade Band were heard, and in a few seconds the blue coats of the [294] mounted police came in sight down Franklin street. The head of the procession halted when opposite Richmond College in order to clear the way. At 2:15 o'clock the head of the procession reached the monument. A perfect ovation was given General Fitz Lee, who kept his head uncovered while passing through the great crowd of people who were cheering him.

The head of the procession marched around the monument and General Lee and his assistant marshals and the Stonewall Band came inside the circle.

The band occupied a stand which had been erected for them by the side of the speakers' stand.
