Rest at Mt. Jackson. [from the Richmond, Va., dispatch, April 29, 1901.]

Confederate dead in beautiful Shenandoah Cemetery.

They appeal for assistance.

Daughters of the Confederacy would erect a Monument over these fallen Heroes—Virginia, North and South Carolina, Georgia, and Alabama troops sleep there.

To the Editor of the Dispatch.
The Shenandoah river, in the Valley of Virginia—the garden spot of Virginia—was called by the Indians ‘Minneha-ha,’ or, laughing waters. Situated on the bank of this beautiful stream is the town of Mount Jackson.

This little town had its numerous experiences during the war between the States, from 1861-‘65. It had its joys and sorrows. Around it clusters many sad recollections and the memory of many daring and chivalrous deeds which will never be forgotten by those who survive.

The people in the neighborhood were in the Confederacy heart and soul. The Confederate army established a large hospital here for the Southern soldiers. Many, many, were ministered to by the ladies of Mount Jackson and vicinity, and oft have they heard the sighs heaved by dying soldiers for loved ones at home. Those were trying times.

Hundreds sleep there.

Within a mile of this town is ‘Our Soldiers' Cemetery,’ where lie the remains of 500 or 600 Confederate heroes, who sleep their last sleep. Most of the Confederate States are represented by the dead sleeping there—brave men who died in a cause they knew to be right; soldiers who gave up their lives defending their country from an invading foe. They all had homes and friends somewhere, and their names should not be forgotten.

The very cause for which they died is an appeal to us, their survivors, to keep green the turf upon their graves and guard their last resting place from desecration. [322]

Their brave deeds and heroic self-sacrifice will be fresh in our memory as long as life shall last.

This sacred spot is being cared for by a little band of devoted ‘Daughters of the Confederacy,’ and now we appeal to the States represented by the brave men who lie in the cemetery to assist us in erecting a memorial to their memory, which will last as long as time endures.

If the eyes of any friends of these dear ones should fall upon these lines, we pray them not to turn a deaf ear to our pleadings, but remember the fallen heroes with a liberal contribution, which can be sent to myself.

Mrs. L. H. Rinker, Historian of the U. D. C. Chapter, Mt. Jackson. Va. Mrs. Monroe Funkhouser, President. Miss Elizabeth Brooke, Recording Secretary.
