onclusion of the address the Friendship Band played Dixie's Land. As soon as the crowd caught the old familiar air of Dixie there was an outburst of applause. The veterans' yelling and waving handkerchiefs, hats, lasted for several minutes. Congressman Charles E. Hooker was then introduced, and was received with applause. He apologized for not having manuscript, saying it was a task for him to write since the loss of his arm. He appeared dressed in Confederate gray, as did the late General Early, who delivered the annual memorial address here in 1889. An empty sleeve—a remembrance of the Vicksburg seige—was, as Captain Williams happily remarked in introducing him, the most honorable badge with which he could be decorated. For a man who has borne such a conspicuous part in the history of the South for the past thirty-five years, his appearance is youthful. Entering the army as a private, he rose to the rank of colonel of his regiment. He was one of the counsel assigned by

he frozen echoes of the morning with the thunder of his guns and the sound of a great victory, and thus poured the living tide of hope into the bosoms of our forefathers. While there are monuments to him—one the highest on earth; while a monument has lately gone up to his mother; while monuments to our heroes stand all over the land, yet we want a monument in which should be represented the mothers, wives, daughters, and sisters of R. E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson, Albert Sidney Johnston, Jubal A. Early, G. T. Beauregard, J. E. B. Stuart, George E. Pickett, Fitz Lee, and all the mothers, wives, sisters, and daughters of the Confederate Soldiers, living and dead; in short, to the Confederate Woman, looking as she did, when, with fair hands and bright eyes, she worked the banners and gave them to the boys to be unfurled in the bloody tempest; looking as she did when the shouts of victory throbbed her true, loving heart and flushed her cheeks; looking as she did when bad news reached her,

n front. The corps was on daily duty as scouts and flank pickets on the line of march, and at Spotsylvania Courthouse were deployed on an extended line from the extreme right of our division — a position they held while the brigade was moved to the left in support of other troops where they engaged in this hard-fought battle. They subsequently were sent to the extreme left, and across the river Po to meet a flanking column of the enemy, whose intention it was to turn our left flank. General Early, who conducted this movement, pushed the sharpshooters rapidly forward, following with his line of battle, broke through the marching column, capturing a great many prisoners, and routing the remainder. At Jericho's Ford on the North Anna river, near Verdon station, in Hanover county, the corps of sharpshooters accomplished Zzzone of their best efforts. The enemy had commenced crossing the ford before the head of our column, which was the leading division, had reached the locali

Hill had four elegant brigades— Early, Rodes, Featherston, and Raines—a force which,ed as the great event of the day. He says: General Early sent an officer to report that there was abrings down his division from the college, and Early's Regiment having been selected to make the atbattery we are after. There they are, shouted Early, and in a few moments fell wounded from his ho this devoted band, and with terrible effect. Early's horse has been shot, and in another moment h[10 more...
