y! The Charlottesville (Va.) Progress says: On the 9th of May, 1906, or it may have been 1905, Governor Glenn, of North Carolina, delivered the address at Appomattox on the occasion of the dedication of a monument erected on the field of the surrender by the Old North State. The monument bore the following inscription: First at Bethel; farthest at Gettysburg; last at Appomattox, and this legend was the theme of Governor Glenn's address. The writer of this editorial happened to be present on the occasion, and after the address was over he sought an occasion to speak upon the subject with the amiable governor, who is portly and good conditioned, wn, we then informed him, and, indeed, pointed out to him where the Virginia battery (Poague's, if we are not mistaken) was stationed that fired the last shot at Appomattox.

The Wyatt monument will then be a certainty and can be unveiled on the tenth day of next June, the forty-eighth anniversary. This appeal should meet with instant response.

Monument to Wyatt First to die in War. From the News leader, December 30, 1908. Charlottesville progress says he was native of Albemarle County. Under the lead of the Selma Chapter of the Daughters of the Confederacy, zealously assisted by Captain John A. Mitchener, $844 has been raised for the Wyatt memorial, lacking only $156 of the first thousand needed as a fine beginning to erect in the capitol square in Raleigh, a memorial to Henry W. Wyatt, of Edgecombe county, the first man to give his life for the Southern Confederacy, says the Raleigh (N. C.) Observer.

We then told him that his claim for North Carolina at Gettysburg contradicted the well-established facts of history since all the world knew that Pickett's Virginia division went farthest at Gettysburg, part of it having actually gotten over the stone wall on the crest of the hill. He said that he did not deny that and did not claim that the North Carolinians went farthest to the direct front, but that Pettigrew's North Carolina brigade made a detour to the left and went a greater distance than did Pickett's men.
