Company D, Eighteenth Virginia Infantry. [correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch, August 22, 1891.]
Re-Union of survivors-war Roster of the Company.
Prospect, Va., August 21, 1891.The soldiers' reunion near here yesterday was by all conceded to be the most enjoyable event of recent date. The Alliance people and old soldiers united in a joint pic-nic of mammoth proportions. More than five hundred persons were present—men, women and children—and when they were well served from the groaning, overloaded table a like number could have been amply supplied. Your senior can well attest the fact that for rousing pic-nics, with all the edible meats, fruits and dainties, this neighborhood cannot be beaten. This was the first effort since the war to reorganize Company D, of the Eighteenth regiment—the old Prospect Rifle Grays—and twenty-five answered to the roll call, and eleven of other companies of this regiment were found present, mainly of the Thornton Picket Camp, of Farmville.  J. B. Glenn, who left an arm at Boonsboroa, delivered an address of welcome. Lieutenant J. P. Glenn, whose bravery and heroism was displayed on near a hundred battle-fields, offered thanksgiving and prayer.
