eninsula campaign. At the battle of Williamsburg, May 5th, the regiment performed distinguished service, fighting behind an abatis of felled timber and holding a position against the main force of the Confederate army. Of 36 of its number the regiment might report, ‘And with the dead he lay,’ and the total loss mounted to 143. Through the rest of the campaign, at Fair Oaks and during the Seven Days Battles, it was in the hard fighting. At Chancellorsville it served under General Berry, who was killed on May 3, 1863. At Gettysburg it appeared with ranks thinned by two years of continuous service, yet sustained a loss of eighty-nine. There came a blinding flash, a deafening roar, And dissonant cries of triumph and dismay; Blood trickled down the river's reedy shore, And with the dead he lay. The morn broke in upon his solemn dream, And still, with steady pulse and deepening eye, ‘Where bugles call,’ he said, ‘and rifles gleam, I follow, though I die!’ Elbridge Jeffer

A new England tribute to Lee This tribute is taken from an address entitled shall Cromwell have a statue? delivered before the Chicago chapter of Phi Beta Kappa, June 17, 1902. the author, General Charles Francis Adams, served through the Civil war in the cavalry, acting as chief of squadron at Gettysburg, and at the close being brevetted brigadier-general in the regular army, from which he resigned in July, 1865. few episodes in our national life have been more dramatic than the delivery of this tribute from the scion of an old New England family to the foremost representative of Virginia chivalry. The address attracted wide attention, so much so that General Adams was invited by Washington and Lee University to become chief speaker at the centennial celebration, on January 19, 1907, of
subject to attacks by the Confederates. Its career throughout the war is proof that the spirit of the Battle-hymn animated these boys in blue. Its Lieutenant-Colonel, L. A. Grant, who sits on his charger to the right, became famous later as the general commanding the Vermont Brigade. To the left is Major Redfield Proctor. Leaving Camp Griffin on March 10, 1862, the regiment moved to the Peninsula. Its name became known at Yorktown and Savage's Station, at Antietam, Fredericksburg, and Gettysburg. In the Wilderness campaign, in the battle of May 5th, it assisted in checking the advance of the Confederates along the plank road in time for the Second Corps to take a strong position. It was in the heavy fighting of the succeeding day, and at the Bloody Angle at Spotsylvania was engaged for eight hours in the desperate and determined contest. The brigade commander reported: It was empathically a hand-to-hand fight. Scores were shot down within a few feet of the death-dealing musket

s apparent. Till it reached the Capitol square, and wheeled, And there in the moonlight stood revealed A well known form that in State and field Had led our patriot sires: Whose face was turned to the sleeping camp, Afar through the river's fog and damp, That showed no flicker, nor waning lamp, Nor wasted bivouac fires. And I saw a phantom army come, With never a sound of fife or drum, But keeping time to a throbbing hum Of wailing and lamentation: The martyred heroes of Malvern Hill, Of Gettysburg and Chancellorsville, The men whose wasted figures fill The patriot graves of the nation. And there came the nameless dead,—the men Who perished in fever-swamp and fen, The slowly-starved of the prison-pen; And marching beside the others, Came the dusky martyrs of Pillow's fight, With limbs enfranchised and bearing bright: I thought—perhaps 'twas the pale moonlight— They looked as white as their brothers! And so all night marched the Nation's dead, With never a banner above them spread, <
s near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting, While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring; But O heart! heart! heart! O the bleeding drops of red, Where on the deck my Captain lies, Fallen cold and dead. Lincoln at Gettysburg. The most important American address is brief: Fourscore and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Now we are engag resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain, that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

Mother kissed me in my dream Set to a plaintive melody—the words of this exquisite lyric gave comfort to many a lonely soldier. It is recorded that a wounded private of Colonel Benj. L. Higgins' 86th New York Infantry sang this song to cheer his comrades while they were halted in a piece of woods beyond the memorable wheat-field at Gettysburg, on the morning of July 3d, 1863. Lying on my dying bed Throa the dark and silent night, Praying for the coming day, Came a vision to my sight. Near me stood the forms I loved, In the sunlight's mellow gleam: Folding me unto her breast, Mother kissed me in my dream. Comrades, tell her, when you write, That I did my duty well; Say that when the battle raged, Fighting, in the van I fell; Tell her, too, when on my bed Slowly ebbed my being's stream, How I knew no peace until Mother kissed me
