Friendship Is Indissoluble.
The Third Annual Beunien of the
survivors of the Sixteenth .Kentucky
Regiment was held in this city yesterday.
Thi3 regiment became famous dining
the war for the courage and loyalty of
its members. New in times of pcacu
they are none the less valiant and none"
the less devoted te the principles for
which they se nobly battled. Once in
every year theso who are still spared

This year, for the second tlme since
their organization as a body, they honored
the city of Maysvllle with their presence.
A large crowd of them was present, but
they have becenie se scattered in persen,
though net in soul, during the inter
vening years that it is impossible for
them all or indecd a majority of them te
attend these annual rounlens.
The comrades assembled in the G. A.
R. Hull yesterday morning and promptly
at 11 o'clock weic called te order by
Captain M. C. Uutchins of this city,
Chairman of the Association. The re
pert of the Secretary, II. C. Weaver of
Broeksvlllc, was read and approved.
The roll was then called by the
Secretary. After an Immense amount of
toil undtroubleMr. Weaver has succeeded
in compiling a complete roster of the
regiment which contains the name, rank,
PostelHco nddress and the Company te
which he belonged of evcry man in the
regiment who is still among the living
and also a record of these who have
passed away. Before commencing the
roll call theso present were asked te
inform the Secretary of any change of
residence of any of the comrades during
the past year. Every new nnd then as a
name was called out loud and clear seme
ene would give the information that the
old soldier deneted had removed from his
former home, but most frequently the
response, when there was ene, was that
silent and simple word, yet se full of
significance, "Dead." And se it would
be marked. Hew seen the time will
ceme when there will be no one te call
the roll aud nene te answer "Deadl"
While the roll call was being proceeded
with, Captain Hutchins announced that
the venerable Colonel of the regiment,
Charles A. Marshall of this county, was
in the city, and appointed Dr. S. M. Cart
mcllefUiis city, H. C. Metcalfe of Brooks Breoks Broeks
villo, and G. M. DcGarme et Cincinnati a
committce te go atter ana bring him te
the hall. His ontrance with the commit cemmit commit
teo a few minutes later was the signal for
a storm of applause. He was escorted te
the front and given a seat beside tlie
Chairman, and for awhile held an im
promptu reception, everyene of his old
command being eager te greet the Colenol
aud take him by the hand.
At the conclusion of the roll call, the
Treasurer, Geerge N. Crawford of this
city, made his repert showing receipts
and disbursements up te and including
the reunion of 1891. The repert showed
the rcceipts from all sources te have bcen
?1G0 05; the expenditures $115 85, leav
ing balance of $44 80. A request for
contributions from theso present te en
able the Treaturer te meet the expenses
of this reunion, and also te enable the
Secretary te have printed and distributed
among the members the rester, as com
pleted, which will be as nearly perfect
as It is possible te make it, met with
The olectlen of etllcers was declared in
order and resulted ns follews: M, O.
Uutchins and O. L. Ovcrley were placed
in nomination for Chairman. A division
of the house showed a majority in favor
of Captaiu Hutchins. C. L. Ovcrley was
honored by being unanimously chosen
Vlce-Presldent. H. C. Weaver and G.
N. Crawford were unanimously re-elected
Secretary nnd Treasurer respectively.
Colenol Marshall net belng able te at
tend the dinner, and all wishing him te
speak te them, he made a short address
full of tender aud loving expressions of
hts gratification at the reception given
him, and of sound, fatherly advice.
There was net oiieiprcsant who vms net

The sovero trials and hardships endured by
lis army during the camnalgn of 186.1. which
resulted In the capture of Knoxvllle and the
permanent occupation of Hast Tennessee, are
still fresh In your memory.
This campaign was net characterized by
sanguinary engagements, but waa remarkable
for long, dlQIcult and laborious nmrches ever
almost Impasaable mountain reads, through a
most desolate nnd barren region.
During the occupation of the valler of East
Tennessee that winter, and particularly about
the 1st of January, I Mi, the exposure,
privations and sufferings of the reglment
wero almost without parallel.
The brlgade te which the Slxtoenth Ken
tucky belonged, by presenting n bold front a'
Ixjucfen, Impeded JA)tigtroet's progress tint
llurnslde had partially completed the for
tifications at Knoxvllle.
It then took up a position at Kingsten,
where it successfully contended with Wheel
er's cavalry, while the thunder of the guns at
Knoxvllle told of the siege of that city.
The regiment sustained less at Kingsten
and later en nt Messy Creek.
After the regiment's ro-enllstment It was
granted a thirty days leave of absence' and at
the expiration of that tlme It returned te
East Tennessee, reaching Knoxvllle April 4th,
Fiem Knoxvllle It proceeded te Dalten, Gil.,

Hrlgude, commanded by General Hclllev,
Third Division, commanded by General J. D.
Cox. Twenty-third Army Cerps, commanded
by General J. M. Scolleld, the present General-In-Chief
of the United States Armies.
It continued In this brlgade, division and
corns organization until the closeof the war,
and never was a brigade, division or corps
mere Skillfully or heroically cemmanded.
It was constantly engaged In skirmishing,
and participated In all the engagements known
as the 100 days battle of that glorious cam
paign which culminated In the capture of At
lanta and the severance of the Confederacy.
During this campaign the regiment sufTered
frightful losses In killed, wounded and miss
ing, ns well as from disease.
The Twenty-third Cerps was denied thoprlv theprlv thoprlv
llege of the march te the sea under Its Idol Idel
Izod Cammnnder-tn-Chlef, but was assigned
by him te a tnore horelc duty that of return

The Sixteenth Kentucky was one of the two
regiments selected by General Cox te oppeso
the passage of Lee's division across Duck
river at Columbia, Tenn.. twenty-eight years
age yesterday, until Scetlcld's army, with lis
artillery and immense wagon train, could
safely reach the Harpcth ut Franklin.
The selection or the Sixteenth Kentucky by
Its Division Commander for this dut), which
amounted practically te a forlorn hope, was
the highest compliment te Its chlvnlr) that he
could have boMewod upon It; and while It
mere than fuirtlled the most sangulne expee

casion, It remained for the regiment te win
imperishable renown nnd lmmertall70 Itself

The regiment maintained Its cuvliible repu
tation for gallantry during the two days bat
teo of Nashville, whleh occurred two weeks af
ter that at Franklin.
In December, lbilt. It was transferred with
the Twenty-third Cerps te the Eastein coast,
and served with distinction in the capture of
Fert Andersen, Wilmington. Knlelgh and
ethor Important points in North Carolina, and
was In at the death when Johnsten's army
Anally surrendered at Greensboro.
It then returned te Loulsvllle whero the
survivors were given their final discharge
papers, and wero furnli'ued with transporta
tion te their homes.
All through the Georgia campaign and also
that of Tonnessoo and North Carolina, the
regiment shared all the hardships and deeper deepor doeper
ato fighting In which Shermnn'e army was en
gaged, and in all of which It acquitted Itself
with honor te the regiment, the state and the
cause for which It contended.
The National Cemeteries In the localities
where It served contain the remnlns of many
of the gallant old Sixteenth Kentucky, who
roll while heroically contending for the cause
of the Union.
"On fame's eternnl camping ground
Their silent tout are spread,
And glory guards with solemn round
The blvouaeottho dead,"
Many of them were Immured In hnrrid
