Zzzsons of Veterans.

Bowering's Band, of Fredericksburg, under the leadership of Professor Bowering, was in the procession, with twenty-eight pieces. It preceded the Sons of Veterans, who were under Colonel Thomas P. Pollard. Colonel Pollard's staff consisted of Messrs. J. M. Langhorne and Horace Burnham.

R. S. Chew Camp, Sons of Veterans, of Fredericksburg, commanded by F. H. Revere, was the first body of this character in the column. This camp was organized April 30th last, yet it appeared in line yesterday with more than thirty men, all clad in bright new uniforms of Confederate gray.

The Christoforo Colombo and the Richmond and Danville Shops' Band added to the music of the day. They were stationed in this division, the latter preceding Syracuse Division, Knights of Pythias, which was officered by Captain A. L. Lucas and Lieutenants Baughan and Canepa.

The Union Democratic Scouts, Captain Billy Cullingworth's pets, were in line in full Zouave uniform. Captain W. H. Barnett had charge of the Zouaves and ‘General’ Schastepool rode horseback in front of the line.

Following the civic organizations were the ladies of the Hollywood Memorial Association, and the ‘Juniors,’ and those of the Oakwood and Hebrew Memorial Associations, and the Ladies' Auxiliaries of Lee and Pickett Camps in carriages.
