The illness and death of Grant, in 1885, had already shown to what extent cordiality of feeling was displacing the old antagonih has so suddenly sprung up between those engaged but a few short years ago in deadly conflict.

Historically, the intercourse between the soldiers had been much freer during the preceding winter and spring, between the battle of Fredericksburg and the opening of the Chancellorsville campaign.
