Moving out Franklin street.
Moving up Grace street from the Capitol Square
the procession turned down Fifth and into Franklin
At this corner there were fully two thousand eager spectators, and the cheering they gave was deafening.
When the entire procession had fully got into Franklin street it extended almost from Third street to the Lee
monument, and the scene presented was one of gorgeous beauty.
The shining barrels of the musketry, the glittering red
uniforms, the varicolored
costumes of the thousands of ladies that terraced the sidewalks, lawns, porticos, and filled the windows of almost every residence, and the flying bunting and flags, coupled with the inspiring music of drums and bands, gave the street such an appearance as it has not had since the unveiling of the Lee
statue in 1890.
