[74] were the order of the day. At noon the bugle was sounded for the formation, and Company H, Company C, and Company I, mounted, formed in line facing the courthouse, ander the command of Colonel John A. Gibson. To the command ‘Right by twos,’ the ‘vets’ wheeled into column, and paraded the principal streets of the town.

After the parade the roll was called and the command given: ‘Prepare for action;’ the enemy to be engaged was an elegant dinner prepared by Comrade C. W. Irvine in his best style. After dinner speech-making was indulged in.

Hon. Wm. A. Anderson, Captain J. Pres. Moore, and Colonel W. Bolivar F. Leech were the orators of the occasion. Their remarks elicited the wildest enthusiasm, and the ‘rebel yell’ made the dining-room ring.

The next reunion will take place in Staunton on Court Monday, August 28, 1895, when all the surviving members of the Fourteenth will be brought together again.

The members of the companies represented were mostly from Rockbridge and Augusta Counties.

A noticeable incident of the day was that it was the thirtieth anniversary of the day when Captain Wilson lost his arm.

This command served all through the war, and was in the memorable raid through Pennsylvania.

Captain John A. Gibson, Lieutenant James Lindsay, Lieutenant Wm. M. Sterritt, Lieutenant Wm. N. Wilson, Orderly-Sergeat J. S. Gibson.
