It is proposed te de something in the
way of organization for tbe reunion of
comrades at the coming National En
campment which will be altogether un
precedented nnd unique.
At all previous Encampments it has
been a matter of great difficulty and un
certainty te find the comrades and ethers
whom the visitors most wish te sec.
While reunions have been announced
and places designated for holding them,
they have been held in schoolhouses and
ether places scattered ever the city,. which
was very difficult for the strangcrte find.
As his time at the Encampmcntnust be
necessarily very limited, and a great deal
going op tbat hOi;rT8b,ed rU see; be fre
qUQnjly did,nettw.pni; tOiOt;t0.4 reunion
at some dlstantj?Qiot,pJuicceunt of some
ether matters of importance elsewhere.
It is new proposed te obviate this by
an original and comprehensive arrange
ment. The whole army and navy of the
United States will be divided into thirty
two corps, This gives one, for jeach of
the twenty-five old infantry corps, one
for the sailors and marines, ene for the
cavalry of the Potomac, ene for artillery
of the Army of the, Potomac, pne for cav
alry of the Military Division of the Mis
sissippi, which includes that country be
tween the Mississippi and the Alleghenies,
one for the colored troops of the same
division, one for ex-prisoners of war and
one for engineers..
A sub-committee baa .been .formed for
each of these corps, at the head .of, which
has been appointed a comrade who saw
active service in that organization, and
who is new a man of energy and geed
pxecutive ability. This man, who is a
member of the general committee of re
unions, will be chairman of tbe sub-committee
which he will form for his partic
ular corps. J
The next step is te provide for a place
for holding tbe reunions, and it is proposed
for this purpose te take the open Mall at
tbe Seuth front of the White Heuse, and
generally known in Washington as
the White Let.
This large, level lawn lying between
the Seuth front of the White Heuse and
the Monument, in a central portion of
the city, is easily accessible from all sec
tions. In the center is an ellipse formed
by the roadway upon which the fine
teams of Washington are speeded. The
ellipse is about two thousand feet the
long way by fifteen hundred the short.
It Is proposed te put upon this, ellipse
large wall tents for the corps headquar
ters, and in the rear et them smaller tents
for divisions, brigades and regiments.
The corps headquarters will have the
well-known corps Digs and the division
flags. There will also be several extra
large tents for holding great reunions.
When all of them are put up and deco
rated with their various flags it will form
a most beautiful military picture, long te
be remembered by these who have the
geed fortune te see it.
In tbe center of the ellipse, en a tall
flagstaff, will be heisted a garrison flag.
battery qf artillery for firing salutes
and sunrise and sunset guns will be sta
tioned about the flagstaff, and several
companies of infantry from tbe garrison
et the place.
It is expected that every veteran, upon
his arrival in the city will go directly te
this spot, find his corps headquarters and
report himself, thus coming at. once into
communication with all comrades of the
same corps, division, brigade and regi
ment. , Every effort will be made te secure the
attendance of the old corps and subordi
nate, commanders and all persons conspic
uous in the history of the organization.
In this way it will be made sure that
every veteran going te Washington will,
without difficulty, be able te meet these
whom he most wishes te, see. .
It is also proposed tha en Monday
morning, before the Encampment meets,
the Commander-in-Chief and the Chap-laln-in-Chlcf,
with their attendants, will
go te the White Let and solemnly dedi
cate it as the great reunion place of the
men who fought the war, either en sea
or land, te a successful conclusion,
It is believed that there will be a par
ticular historic fitness in holding this, thcu '
greatest of all reunions, twenty-seven
years after the close of tbe war, In
the heart of the National Capital, and
under the shadow of the Cnnltel. of Ar- rrtl
lingten, the White Hpuse, the Monument
and ether distinctive features.
Tens of thousands of the old veterans
and their commanders wjll then meet, en
this spot, many of them for ,the last time .
pn earth, and this will give the meeting
an almost sacred importance.
It has also been suggested te change ,
the name of thq AYhJte Let te Reunion , -Place,
and have Congress erect a memo
rial tablet stating tbe fact of the great re
union being beld there ip 1803,
It is hoped by the chairman or thoCem-
mittec en Reunions that all the living
veterans will take an Interest In this mat
ter, and theso who thiuk it possble for
bcm te attend will send their names,
Postoffice address.es, corps, divisions,
brigades, .and rcjglments te him en a' pos
tal card, that tpey may be "classified be be be
eoeo their arrival, and' each may knew
