el, L. A. Grant The time of this photograph and its actors connect directly with Julia Ward Howe's inspiration for her Battle hymn. The author, in the late fall of 1861, had made her first visit to Washington in company with her pastor, James Freeman Clarke, Governor Andrew of Massachusetts, and her husband, Dr. Howe, who, already past the age of military service, rendered valuable aid as an officer of the Sanitary Commission. Of her visit she writes in her Reminiscences: On the return from e review of troops near the city, to beguile the rather tedious drive, we sang from time to time snatches of the army songs so popular at that time, concluding, I think, with John Brown's body. The soldiers . . . answered back, Good for you! Mr. Clarke said, Mrs. Howe, why do you not write some good words for that stirring tune? I replied that I had often wished to do this, but had not as yet found in my mind any leading toward it. I went to bed that night as usual, and slept, according to
Harper's Encyclopedia of United States History (ed. Benson Lossing), Clarke, James Freeman 1810-1888 (search)
Clarke, James Freeman 1810-1888 Author-clergyman; born in Hanover, N. H., April 4, 1810; graduated at Harvard College in 1829, and at Cambridge Divinity School in 1833. His publications relating to the United States include History of the campaign of 1812, and defence of General William Hull for the surrender of Detroit; and Anti-slavery days. He died in Jamaica Plains, Mass., June 8, 1888.
Sallust, Caesar, Cicero, and Virgil; together with Jacobs's Greek Reader, Mattaire's Homer, and other books preparatory to admission to Harvard College. The late Joseph Palmer, M. D., was an assistant instructor in the school, but was not then conscious that he was moulding the spirit of one whom he was afterwards to greet as the leading speaker on behalf of freedom in America. Among his school companions at this period were George T. Bigelow, Robert C. Winthrop, George S. Hillard, James Freeman Clarke, Thomas B. Fox, William H. Channing, Samuel F. Smith the poet, and others who have since attained celebrity. Although Charles Sumner did not hold the highest rank in scholarship on the appointed lessons of his class, he was distinguished for the accuracy of his translations from the Latin classics, and for the brilliancy of his own original compositions. He received in 1824 the third prize for a translation from Sallust; when one of the examiners remarked, If he does this when a boy
children whose parents have passed away. We can weep; but we don't understand it. We can weep; but we must beg of you to give us a man who will still lead us forward until we shall have accompanied all those thousands for which he offered his life. The public press throughout the country paid generous tributes to the departed statesman; and many clergymen on the sabbath spoke impressively of the national bereavement. The discourses of the Revs. Edward E. Hale, Dr. C. A. Bartol, James Freeman Clarke, George L. Chaney, T. W. Higginson, C. D. Fradlee, J. W. Hamilton, Samuel Johnson, James B. Dunn, Dr. S. K. Lothrop, Henry Ward Beecher, Dr. E. B. Foster, were particularly eloquent and appropriate. It is estimated that as many as forty thousand people visited Doric Hall to view the remains of the beloved senator. The room was elaborately draped in mourning; and the catafalque and casket resting in the centre were covered with most exquisite floral decorations. At the head of the c
d purpose of the resolutions were to ignore the question of slavery, and to bring about a political union of men of all parties in the State. Such being the views of the convention, the speech of Mr. Sumner was regarded with disfavor. Rev. James Freeman Clarke, a delegate from Boston, offered two resolutions, which had a bearing towards sustaining the position taken by Mr. Sumner; but they failed to receive the approval of the convention. The first expressed confidence in the wisdom of the nn certainly disavowed any intention of indorsing the fatal doctrines announced by Mr. Sumner, with a distinctness that can be hardly flattering to that gentleman's conception of his own influence in Massachusetts. The resolutions offered by Rev. Mr. Clarke, as a crucial test of the readiness of the convention to adopt open abolitionism as its creed, went to the table, and were buried, never to rise. Further on, it says,— It may not appear so to Mr. Sumner and his supporters, and it m
ss would stop a man at every step. Colonel Ritchie found, at Newport News, three divisions of Burnside's corps, and General Stevens's division, from Hilton Head. General Burnside expected to have, in a short time, thirty thousand men; but it was a curious fact, that not a regiment had been sent up the river to Harrison's Landing. He found the Twenty-first Regiment, which had come from North Carolina, in fine condition, and only requiring a hundred and fifty recruits to fill it up. Colonel Clarke, who commanded the Twenty-first, informed Colonel Ritchie, that he had forwarded his recommendations for promotions, and had nothing more to add, excepting that he hoped your Excellency would not give any commissions to officers who had resigned. I will add here, that this is a point upon which I find the greatest sensitiveness, in every direction. The number of resignations have been scandalously large; only those are accepted which are considered beneficial to the service; and it wou
anister were used. The one volley in Cooper Street ended the riot, and no soldier or loyal man was hurt. Thus ended what appeared at one time to be a serious menace to the city. Quiet was restored. In a few days after the military were relieved from duty, and returned to their several posts. The entire cost of this military guard of honor and of peace was $14,495. The law of Congress to raise troops by draft was put in operation in this Commonwealth in the months of June and July. Major Clarke, U. S. A., one of the truest gentlemen who ever held command in Massachusetts during the war, was appointed Provost-Marshal-General of the State, with headquarters at Boston. Assistant provost-marshals were appointed for the several congressional districts. These appointments were made at Washington. A board was also established to make an enrolment of all persons in the State between the ages of twenty and forty-five years. The persons thus enrolled were 164,178. The whole number of
Governor telegraphed to Mr. Hooper, House of Representatives, Washington,— General Schouler reports that he and Major Clarke, U. S. A., assistant Provost-Marshal for Massachusetts, have agreed on figures, showing our total deficiency, on May 1tly to Washington on the subject, sometimes with success, sometimes without. I have also had frequent interviews with Major Clarke for the same object; and he has done what he could to correct errors growing out of the vicious system of recruiting t clerk in his office, for one hundred dollars paid him, made out fraudulent enlistment papers. I reported the case to Major Clarke; and, as the rolls had not been forwarded to Washington, the men were credited to Topsfield, where they belonged. W advance of the army, that he could not attend to the matter; about two weeks after his return, authority was given to Major Clarke to make the corrections. But it was too late: the draft had commenced, and no further delay would be granted. I wo
preclude further action by the State authorities; but, on representing the matter to the Provost-Marshal-General of the United States, permission was given to Major Clarke, U. S. A., the military commander of Massachusetts, to arrange the credits, and he adopted the list, as reported by Major Rogers, from the written evidence whi salute. The old Sixth attracted much attention as it marched up Broadway. At the request of Colonel Follansbee, I telegraphed to Major Brown to arrange with Major Clarke, U. S. A., military commander, to have the regiment furloughed upon its arrival in Boston, until such time as its rolls could be completed for mustering out: tnext day, and bring blank rolls with me. At ten o'clock, Colonel Russell and I rode to our quarters, and soon after retired. I must not omit to mention, that Captain Clarke, of the Twenty-ninth Regiment, is brigade-adjutant, and he is regarded highly by Colonel McLaughlin.
