Hero-Worship seems instinctive in
man. Amongst barbarians this facul
ty amounts to adoration and such peo
ple deify the object of their worship.
With thc civilized races this devotion
is modified and gratified by higher in- j
telligence, but is found to exist. More
largely is this faculty developed in
the case of military heroism, and
oftentimes the magnetism of a won
derful and attractive personality domi
nates and forces this deference from
those with whom they come in con
tact. Scipio's veterans offered to
"die for him if he would but spare
himself." Thc Old Guard proved
their devotion to the "Little Cor
poral" in the sublime expression "the
Old Guard dies but never surrenders."
Thus, through the anuals of time,
docs history reveal this tendency of
thc human race to hero-worsh'
Few heroes have over held too com
plete loyalty of their followers lo tho
extent that General Robert E. Leo
did from his soldiers. No character
in history measured nearer up to per
fect manhood than did thc great Vir
ginian. Stainless in life, grand in all
the attributes of a great captain, yet
simple as a child in his Christian
faith and trust. Like Saul of old, he
towered above his surroundings, and
today the whole world recognizes in
Robert E. Lee the true representa
tive and faithful exponent of our
st'k'ndid southern oivilization. So
c mplotoly centered in him were all
) man virtues, the priostly laureate
vt the South, in ono stanza, lifts his
subject into aouto sublimity:
"Out of its scabbard never hand
Waved sword from stain so free,
Nor a brighter sword led a braver band,
Nor a braver fought for a brighter
Nor a brighter land had a cause ne
Nor a cause a ohief like Lee."
As evidence of tho loyalty of that
hero-worship that halloed this truly
great man, let mo cito a few inoidents.
The splendor of Lee's great genius
was never better displayed than at
Chancellorsville Tho unfortunate
fall of Jackson did not mar his plan,
and as Staurt, now J^a command of

juet preceding his fall, Loo with tho
balance of the army, joined in the for- <
ward movement entering into the ear- ]
nest ardor of his troops. A writer in ]
Tho (English) Pall Mall Gazetto thus '
describes the scene: <
"General Lee accompanied the ]
'troops in person and as they emerged I
rfrom tho fierce combat they had waged t
in the depths of tho tangled wilder- f
ness, driving the superior foroo of the i
enemy before them aoross tho open (
ground, he (Lee) rode into tboir midst. J
The troops were pressing forward with ?
all thc ardor and enthusiasm of com
bat. The white smote of the mu?ket- a
ry fringed the front of the battle line, ?
while the artillery on the hills in rear Q
of the infantry, shook the earth with Y
its thunders and filled tho air with the t
shrieks of the shells that plunged into t
the masses of the retreating foe. e
"To add greater horror and subli- j
mity io tho scene the Chancellorsville T
house and the woods surrounding it f
were wrapped in flames. In the midst n,
of this awful scene, General Lee, j
mounted upon that horse which we all \
remember so well (the famous gray, t
Traveler,) rode to the front of his ad- c
vancing battalions. His appearanco r
was the signal for one of those un- f
controllable outbursts of enthusiasm f
which nono can appreciate but those G
who have witnessed them. The fierce t
soldiers, their faces blackened with
the smoko of battle, the wounded t
orawling with feeble limbs from the E
fury of tho devouring flames,'all seem- \
ed possessed with a common impulse. \
One long, unbroken cheer, in which j
the feeble cry of thoso who lay help- ;
less on the earth, blended with the ?
strong voices of those who still fought, ?
rose high above the roar of battle and j
hailed the presence of the victorious |

I looked uponhimjthe oomplete fruition
of tho success of his genius, courage
and confidence in his army had won, I
thought it must have been from some
such scene that men of ancient days
ascended to the dignity of tho gods."

but 128,000 muskets, yet with his ac
customed audacity, bc savagely as
saulted the moving blue mass -nd
soon changed the formation from mov
ing column to battle line. Tho two
parrallel roads, tho turnpike and plank
road, formed thc means of travel
through the tangles of tho .wilderness.
Jleith and Wilcox straddled the latter
road and for a whole day with 11,000
men withstood thc successive shooks
of Hancock with more than 40,000
troops. Their losseB, in resisting
so overwhelming a forco, was neces
sarily vory heavy. Tho nervous ten
sion was also excessive, so that when
night dropped the curtain of darknoss
upon the blood-stained field, these two
overworked divisions dropped in their
tracks from sheer heroic exhaustion.
They had been informed they would
bo relieved and replaced by fresh
troops, therefore were they anxious
for this to occur under cover of dark
ness. Longstreet was expected be
fore midnight, but losing his way, he
was hours behind in getting his corps
up to the field.
Grant had issued the laconic order,
"attack along the whole line at 5 a.
m.," and Hancock strengthened and
refreshed, promptly renewed the at
tack at the appointed time. So hack
ed and gashed, Wiloox and Heath
wero ill-conditioned to meet tho

Extremo was tho peril when tho ad
vance of Longstreet came on the field,

than the Confederate commander.

ince on the Wilderness field was the
icene of their first meeting in many
nonths. Biding upon their flank ,
General Loe greeted them as old and
ried companions. He told them he 1
vould personally lead them in the at- '.
aok upon Hanoook. i
Though great was the peril te the j
irmy these Texans oould not believe i
t was so severe as to necessitate such !
\ duty from General Lee. Biding i
7i th them as they began to lina under t
he florae fire of Hanoook's veterans, 1
hey then seemed to comprehend Gen- '.
ral Lee's purpose. He oould not be- '<
ieve the danger great enough to wat- j
ant suoh a tremendous risk of saori- !
ice. Under that storm of fire these ?
Texans halted sud requested General i
iee to retire. They beoame urgent, ;
?ut ho persisted. The Texans refused i
o go forward and demanded that Gen- :
irai Lee should retire. Obeying the1 i
??ndate of his ?comrades, a tall lank <
brm dad in ragged gray kindly but i
irmly took "Traveler" by the rein |
md led him with his precious burden i
,o the rear. !
Tho Texans had executed a moral
tontraot. Its redemption meant
streams of Texan blood. Bowing their
leads to the hurricane of missiles that i
)oat pitilessly upon them they threw
themselves with savage energy upon
Hancock's centro and there burst from
300 warlike voices that fierce yell that
man evor yet heard unnacved upon the
field of battle; and striking the mighty
blue giant a crushing blow in tho solar
plexus it reeled . and staggered. The
federal flanks overlapping soon closed
the gallant Texans in a ring of fire,
when "Lion" Beauregard, "Tige"
Anderson, with their splendid Geor
gians, and Law's superb Alabamians
joining in tho bloody melee, foroed
the mighty blue line from aggression j
to defense. The Texans redeemed J
their pledge, but at a fearful cost, for
of the 800 glorious soldiers that made
that charge, there avoreroged two and
two-fifths wounds to the mon as evi
denced- by a careful inspection by no
less authority than Senator Boogan.
Has any age or any people ever wit
nessed a moro sublime act of ''hero!
worship" than tbit . rendered by the
Texans on that bright May. morning,
in naturo's temple in the Wilderness?
Almost an exaot parallel to the in
stance just given occurred loss than a
week/later at Spottsylvania.
Under a misconstruction of orders,
a part of Lee's lino had been retired
at an important point, near Spottsyl
vania. Thc error was quickly detect
ed by the courteous and gallant Han
cock, who, under cover of a dense fog,
before dawn on the 12th of May, by a
sudden eruption, overran thc weaken
ed point, and quickly deploring right
and left was fast enveloping thc rear
of Lee's army in his grasp.
Again at tho danger point and the
crucial moment was Lee present. Com
prehending ifuiokly tba terrible dan
ger, he hastily seized thc nearest
troops, and placing himself at their
head, prepared to lead this forlorn
hopo in person. As soon as the troops
understood their commander's inten
tion, as in the case of the Tesaos at
"Thc Wilderness," tho men halted
and refused to go forward. No urging
could move them. General Leo had
too often witocsscd tfleir superb cour
age on the field to doubt their nervo
and loyalty and knew it was not that
which halted them. These troops
proved to be two skeleton brigades
which a commander aptly said, "had
been Aorn by shell and bullets to a
frazzle." Like his men, ho could
not believe the danger wurranted the
sacrifice Lee was about to make, and
appealing alike to General Lee and
his men he. cried, "Men, is it
necessary that General Lee shall lead
you? General Lee. these are Geor
gians and V irginians; they have never
failed you uor will they now. Go to
thc rear, and we will either retake
tho works or the last man will die in
the attempt." Slowly and regretfully
General Lee retired. Gordon had
given a bond for his men and they
must now make good the pledge.
Breasting the storm of fire that
mercilessly boat upon them and shout
ing their mighty battle-cry, at tho so
far victorious federals, drove the gray
soldiers, nor did they cease until che
bond had been fully met and Hancock
hurled back into his entrenchments,
though outnumbered nine times.
For love and devotion pure and sim
ple nowhere in, any age or in any peo
ple has there existed Buoh honest
hero-worship as that rendered Lee by
tho soldiers of the wonderful and elas
tic army of Northern Virginia. All
through the hardships of those mar
velous years of terrible campaigning
these soldiers were ever ready to' re
spond to the bequest of their loved
commander and when the last struggle
ended in disaster to the hopes that
had buoyed them for f Dur years, they
wept bitter tears as they sought to kiss
his hand in parting. Such hero-wor
ship the world has never witnessed
and such hero-worship carried the
stamp of unusual commendation so
that even now the name is hold in
deepest love and veneration.-Col. G.

Washington, March 16.--By direc
tion of Secretary Hoot the war depart
ment .today embarked on the exten
sive work of compiling and publishing
a complete roster of the officers and
enlisted men of the Union and Con
federate armies. This is tho secre
tary's own project and he suoceeded
in impressing congress with the ides
that it would be just and fair to the
South to place on official lists the
names of Confederate soldiers in ordei
that their descendants- may trace theil

North, through separate State publi
latinas, has covered pretty well thii
ground for its own soldiers. But thc
Southern records and a Kihi ves, novel

stroyed! owing to the outcome of thc

j during thc great war. IQ the opinion
! that this desire is one that should be
j gratified aud that eau be gratified, io
great measure at least, by compiling
and publishing, as a continuation of
the publication known as the "official
records of the Union and Confederate
armies," a complete list or roster of
the officers and men who served in
those armies during the Civil war,
this department recommended at the
last session of Congress the enactment
of a law authorizing the complication
and preparation of such a roster for
publication. That recommendation
was followed by tho enactment of a
provisioncof law which embodied in
the legislative, executive aud judicial
appropriaton act, approved Feb. 23,
1903, and which is no follows:
"That under thc direction of the
secretary of war tbe chief of the re
cord and pension office shall compilo,
from such official records as are in the
possession of tho United States, aud
from suoh other records as may bo
obtained by loan from the various
States and other official sources, com

The department is prepared to enter
at onco upon the work of making the
compilation thus authorized and to
push it to completion as rapidly aa
possible. There will bo little or no
difficulty in making the Union part
of the roster oomplete, bat there will
be great difficulty with fegard to the
Confederate records in the possession
of this department. It is of the first
importance, thereforo, that no effort
shall-be spared to secure the tempo
rary loan to the war department, for
the purpose of copying, of any and all
authentic Confederate records that
can be found anywhere. Many of
these records/are in the possession uf
the various States and it is hopgd will
be made readily accessible, but there
axe others that are widely scattered
among historical and memorial asso
ciations and private citizens. The
problem of how to find and proouro
the loan of these scattered records is
? difficult OCC, but ii is 0!*e that must
bc Bolved in order that the Confed

credit that is due him in the roster
that is to be compiled.

For a long time tho oapitol wi

gcant-at-orms was notified to bring
members. ?t was likewise rung

Moro important yet, it became ttiO
nianu beii for the war period, when
the militia were summoner* to duty to
repel the freqent raids by the Federal
cavalry. On these momentous occa
sions the youth of the town,' from 16
to IB, and "the silver grays," from 45
to 55, and the battalions of Confed
erate depar?mental clerks, etc., as
sembled on the square to march forth
and man the entrenchments.
That bell rang out tbs war cry on
May 10th, 1860, and a few days
later it was mournfully tolling for tho
death of "Jeb" Stuart! And on anoth
er dreadful day, to wit, April 27,
1870, it rang out. as jf tho capitol were
on fire; but the firemen and the assem
bled spectators were horrified to find
that "the Capital Disaster" had oc
curred and that 65 men were killed
and 200 wounded.
Lee and his army had been fighting
Grant in the wilderness and on the
Rappahannook, when Lee learned of
Sheridan's raid on Richmond and sent
Stuart to intercept it. .Stuart was on
hand here in time. Near the Yellow
Tavern in Henrioo county, out the
Brook road, about Biz miles from this
oity, there was an engagement on May
11th which compelled Sheridan to re
tire in hot haste; but Stuart, riding
from one position to another, was fired
upon by a straggling dismounted Fed
eral and was mortally wounded.
Stuart had emptied his revolver-he
had not a shot left, and the Federal
quietly rested bis carbine on the top
rail of a fence, took good aim and
shot Stuart in the groin. ? wo of our1
men helped Stuart .off his horse. Soon
a little erowd (Andrew Venable and
others) gathered about him, and just
then Gen. Fitz Lee carno up riding to
the front. Stuart said in his usual
tone of voioe: "Halloo, Fitz; go ahead,
old fellow. I know you will do what
is right." An ambulance coming upr
Stuart was placed in it and brought to
Richmond. Here he died the nest ?
doy; aged 31.
The last written order given by
Stuart is preserved. It was addressed
to Gen. Bradley T. Johnson .and ask
ed of the latter1 the loan of the fine
battery in his (Johnson's) brigade.
Stuart'? ]a?t dispatch was written at
Ashland 6.30 a. m., May ll, was ad
dressed to Gen. Braxton Bragg here,
informed the latter of the writer's
plans and closed by saying, "My men
and horses are tired, hungry and jaded,
but ALL. RIGHT." This was brought
to Richmond j through perils and diffi
culties, by A. S. George (now Dr.
George); of Richmond, a member of
the Hanover Troop.
That Gem Stuart and his men saved
Richmond from sack and burning no
doubt ever ha? been entertained. j Our
oity council was so/ well satisfied of
the fact that it promised on . behalf of
