Zzzpalmetto Vets.

The veterans of the Survivors' Association of South Carolina were escorted by a detachment of ten cadets from the South Carolina Military Institute, under command of Captain Lipsey. Each member of the Palmetto State delegation carried a brach of palmetto.

The Howitzer veterans, abouty 60 strong, were close behind the South Carolinians. The old cannoners were under the charge of Captain Charles L. Todd, of this city. The banner of the Howitzer Association, a beautiful design upon blue silk, was carried by Rev. William M. Dame, of Maryland, and Messrs. James T. Gray and Thomas Booker, of this city.

Sturdivant's and Parker's Batteries were well represented in the procession. The veterans of these organizations were commanded by Captains W. H. Weisiger and J. Thompson Brown respectively.

The Confederate Veteran Association, of Washington, headed by a drum-corps of fifteen, and in command of Major R. W. Hunter, followed, and were in turn succeeded by Pickett Camp, of this city, with 325 men in line. Colonel R. N. Northen, commander of the last-named organization was proud of the splendid turnout his camp made.

“F” Company Association of Veterans was also in line under the command of Vice-President Maxwell T. Clarke, the march being beyond the strength of the maimed President, Charles R. Skinker.
