The Daily Dispatch: January 20, 1865., [Electronic resource], The education of disabled soldiers and soldiers children — an important question. (search)
The education of disabled soldiers and soldiers children — an important question. Richmond, Va., January 1, 1865. At the annual meeting of the Baptist General Association of Virginia, in June, 1864, the following persons were appointed a committee to provide for the education of the children of deceased and disabled soldiers, namely: Colin Bass, Esq.; Wellington Goddin, Esq.; Rev. A. E. Dickinson, Hon. R. L. Montague, J. B. Jeter, D. D.; J. L. Burrows, D. D.; and W. F. Broaddus, D. D. The committee have matured a plan of operations which, it is hoped, will greatly further the object. They propose, not to originate schools, but to patronize such as now exist, or may hereafter be brought into existence; to limit their efforts, except in special cases, to aid in giving a good English education; and, in making their appropriations, to be controlled by neither sectarian, sectional nor social distinctions. It has been determined also to assist soldiers, disabled in the Confede
ion of the United States."--This was done at the suggestion of members opposite. "This, " he said, "is Mr. Greeley's preamble and my resolution." Mr. Washburne, (Republican,) of Illinois, moved that the resolution be laid upon the table. The rebels would accept no overtures except such as would be disgraceful to us. The question having been taken, the House laid the resolution upon the table — yeas, 84; nays, 51. The following are the nays: Messrs. Ancone, Baldwin of Michigan, Bass, Brooks, Brown of Wisconsin, Chanier, Coffroth, Cox, Craven, Dennison, Eden, Eldridge, Edgerten, English, Fiuck, Hale, Hall, Harrington, Harris of Illinois.
