Looked like war.

The cheering having ceased, the firing continued. The artillery was stationed on the slope between the monument and Broad street, their guns facing west. The infantry was formed facing Broad street. The smoke from the guns became so thick the Exposition buildings were invisible from the monument.

Thousands of muskets were fired at one time, and the memories of war times came to men who had been engaged in many a fierce conflict. Ex Governor Carroll, of Maryland, was seen to shed tears, and General Joseph R. Anderson was deeply affected. Judge F. R. Farrar (‘Johnny Reb’) remarked that the scene was grand beyond description.
