was noble and eenerout. He hoped God

lonely bamlett, are men and women con
zreitalod for the patriotic purpose, and to

and as a soldier ot his country, be could

casion. Ho wat clad to know
that the United State had gathered thu
bones or soldiers known to bo confederate
dead and Dlaced them tide by tide

But why do we meet on here annually
