Heads uncovered.

About the time General Johnston reached the monument some one cried out, ‘Take your hats off.’ This was taken up and repeated by hundreds of voices, and instantly three-fourths of the men had their heads uncovered. A Dispatch reporter was by the General's side when he took hold of the rope. Just as he did this some one held out his hand to greet the General. ‘I have use for both hands,’ remarked General Johnston, but when he had performed the duty assigned him he turned around and grasped the hand of his friend and several others who pressed forward to greet him.
