And when on memorial day in the

rated, gray headed Confederate veter?

deeoraiiou of Federal graves by
"rebel" bauds Bhould bo opeuud to the

Southern people for dariug to honor
the memory of mou who were unoe
their enemies has met my oyes.
Every Souiberu man felt ih Jj5 ca''
mudo up.in him by his State was an
imperative oummuud aud that his duty
was to obey, without hesitation, and at
ul) hazards. When the North called
on its citizens to rally to the old Mag,
they responded to the hiiiiiuiouh from
a seuso of duty, as did the people of
the South to the call made on them.
State allegiance and State prido in each
ca*o was the moving cause which ar?
rayed millions of men iu arms iu this
country, and while the war that brought
them out caused eutold misery to tho
onuutry, it has taught n lesson to tho
