About 2 o'clock P. M. the various bodies of military began to assemble.

A little later and the waving of flags, tap of drum, and blast of bugle gave notice that the soldiers—artillery, cavalry, and infantry—were preparing to move.

The First regiment of Virginia volunteers formed in line at their armory and the Howitzers at theirs. Lee Camp and the Sons of Veterans met at Veteran Hall, and Pickett Camp formed line on the west side of Sixth street north of Broad. The Chesterfield and Hanover Troops came to town during the morning and made a fine appearance in the parade.
