OMIHUb'J WAHRr.H KIlrSR'g ORATION.
Coaaatd , frianda and -Neighbors :
A tullisoor of years.bas swept by Blnce the
last of our soldier dead were buried with mar
tial, honors near, or In. the midst of the scenes
ofthe.wild tumult of.war, but in those years
tne grave nss openea to receive mnny thous
ands of others who came out of the fiery con
flict,' with broken bodies, or with difcaee, In
cident , to patriotic duty. In those years also,
a grateful .nation has collected from tbe fild,
villaitetvaudlhe bill and mountain sides of
the, Republic, and tenderly burled, in three
score cemeteries," many others of the scldlers,
.whose bones were left bleaching where their
blood.wasjlted, a libation lor a nation's sins.
Many have received no funeral honors, save
Such as comes from lying In ground conse
crated by Iheir own blood and sacrifice.
A lew only who died on distant battle
fields were gathered In, family burial places
and in cemeteries, where their friends can ad
nually assemble at their tombs.
These tew must be honored in the cerr
monies of today, aa tbe representatives of all.
With commendable alacrity the lovers of
liberty, each recurring year, throng from coun
try, town and icity, with solemn reverence,
arid with unspeakable affection, bearing the
sweet blossoms of spring and the sweeter
flowere of memory to crown with fragrant
emblems, ot innocence and beauty, tbe lonely
mounds over the fallen soldiers ot tbe Union.
With floral offerings we commemorate these
noble dead, and we should at the same time
vow to profit-by their heroic death.
Thaiqaestioa ariseai Why this distinction
between' the soldier lead and our other dead
IrlendiOircUUves? From tbe earliest dawn
of civilization, men have been honored for
wbat'they have accomplished, for tbe good ot
humanity, in fields of science, art and' letters.
Menhave won Imperishable renown as states
men and jurists and philanthropists. Men
bare also become Immortalized as the discov
erers and teacher of truth or of morals. Men,
at divine ministers, have acquired enduring
lame, in spreading tbe Christian religion. All
these' mea' of renown- have, alto, made sacri
fices andundergone suffering and some, also,
martyrdom. Among tbe highways of ad
vancing civilization, their monuments in
counties numbers stand. Still, no memorial
day, has been set apart in tbelr honor. At
no age of the world has mankind been so
much given to honoring individuals for what
they have done, through a long life, to pro
mote tbe happiness of mankind, as for what
they have accomplished, to the same end, by
their death. The natural love of life, pos
sessed by all right thinking people, leads to
tbe belief that Supreme honors are due to
those wbo heroically, in a good cause, lay
life down for the salety and welfare of those
wbo Hve after them. Those who, for love ol
country, by, one final act, accept death, in the
judgment ot 'the world, have consummated
tbe ihigbest virtues of men and citizens. By
sushi act, all doubts are resolved and patriot
Ism - and virtue are made immortal. We
hardly venture to shew our esteem for the
living, however pure, holy, upright, patriotic
and honorable their lives may be. A
conflict continues to tbe end ol tbe life of
tbe' grandest character. Tbe loltiest nature
may give way before the surging of the high
tides of temptation. Tbe dead only are safe In
tbe put ; tbe llvlDg must go through tbecrucial
test of. the .presenv and future. But the men
whose fame we commemorate here, bate
ended the conflict, and by their patriotic
death bava.acbleved.for themselves victory of
tbe grandest- character, and placed upon It
tbe great seal of a final record, wbicb time
will be powerless to blot out.
The ceremony' ol today will be unduly re
stricted in its observance If we honor the dead
soldiers and tailors ol tbe Republic alone.
Others suffered and died in the great war of
tbe rebellion. From ibe ranks of that oth-r
patriotic army of pblUntbroplo men and
women of tbe Sanitary and Christian com
missions many tell, through expoture on the
battle-field! and In the hospitals. Tbe bright
est flowers should be ttrewn and tbe hottest
tears should bedew the graves of these angels
of mercy. By their selr-saciificlng devot'0.1
'4 bell of agony was closed, and a besveu of
joy was opened."
But, why tbls human sacrifice? Why
should a Christian natlun have a million of
mangled slain laid upon its altar? Tbe ar.
swer is sbo.t and simple: to purify the living
and tbe generations to come. No heroic sac
rifice Is ever in vain. In Ibe track ot every
great war v. here civilization his fought, at
least In the last one thousand years, the broken
shackles of oppression is found thickly stren,
and treading over and above them, can be seen
marching, a purer and higher type ot man
hood. The history of civilization from tbe
earliest time, shows us that every specially
marked advance has Immtdlattly succeeded
ttn Ineffectual effort of barbarism to let lis
fangs Into struggling humanity.
At flrst.lt wai proclaimed that the late war
was for the preservation sf the Union alone.
Then tat loyal' armies, groped In darknes,
often met defeat; and ruin yawned before
them. God taught us to see that there' Was
linked to that Union tbe destiny of an ,, op
pressed race, composed of millions ol his peo
ple. The liberty ol tbls long wronged race
nnd.thcunlou of Stales became, In truth,
"one and InscpnraMo." The realization of
this fact brought, with ii an Inspiration to the
arm of the Itetmbllc. "Liberty and Union"
,was a double, and more exalted cause to fight
lor. rne soul 01 jonn urown oecame no
inseparable companion ot the warriors for un
ion and liberty as tbey went out to battle.
And so as they marched tbey sang:
"In tht beauty of tht lilies Christ was born across
"With a glory In his bosom that transfigures you
and me 1.
"While he died to make them holy, let us die to
make them free,
"While Uod la marching on."
The now Immortal Lincoln was, by the
God ol battles, Inspired to give the warning
notice, that if rebellion continued, 811 slaves
should be made free, and then to decree their
Who does not now rejoice that this warning
.Went unheeded? Alter the final proclama
tion, wherever our armies fought, tbey met,
though not without a bloody sacrifice, sub
stantial, victory, and when the end came, the
Union ' was preserved, a race was
made free and civilization strode for
ward on the face ol the world,
when we obeyed the voice of God our eagles
soared to victory. The cause in which men
fought ennobled them and sanctified tbelr
death, In the exalted sense, then, It is not to
high personal merit, nor yet to the fact of an
heroic death ,'n the burning flame of war, hut
to the dual cause, Union and Liberty, in
which men fought, fell and died, th.1t we
meet to give our approval today.
About one-half the living In the United
States were born since tbe last echoing thun
ders of war's conflict died away. This hall
have seen only some of the open wounds or
scars upon the bodies of the living battle
survivors. They know only from history and
recounted story of war's terrible character.
Let us not oven seem today to be doing honor
lo the dead because they died amid the glory
of war, as separated from tho glory ot the
cause in which they went lo battle.
If shame could sit upon the brow of na
tions it should be found there whenever, at
tbls period ot the world's progress, they wont
to war to setilo any quesiion, however mo
mentous. The light ot the Prince of Peace,
shining rcsplcndently tbrouch nineteen cen.

On May 5th, I8C8, General John A.Logan,
then Commander-in-Chiof of the G. A. ii, oy

year as "Decoration Day," to be observed by
strewing with hVwers the graves of tho sol
dier dead. 'Hint day has been observed as
such eighteen ruccessivo years; it lias be

and It promises to Iju so observed as long as

Wb niust not conclude that our country Is
free from political Bin, and no longer In
danger of judgment by the God of nations
nnd of justice.
We should today Imbibe a higbei sense of
our duties as citizens, and heie renew pledges
to maintain free Institutions. We should
regaid ourselves ever on duly, charged to
guard with a jealoui eye, the liberty of law,
nor forget to guard against the tyranny of
the lawless. Wo must never mUlake license
for liberty. An inconuptiblo republic Is the
only security for a perpetual union, aud we
should rememhe' liberty can have Its only
asylum with virtue.
"Virtue alone outnullds tho pyra nlds
Her inonuincn'n shall stand when Egypt's fall'
Here let ua consecrate ourselves to the most
czalted duties ol citizens ol a free republic, to
the end that its Institutions may live forever.
The ceremony and services of this day should
mske us better citizens.
A civil war is always more fierce than any
other. Generally, In such war, the contend
ing forces are ot tho same blood and civili
zation. This was in largo part true of our
civil war. Those who fought had the same
common eucestry, and although slavery
existed only In the sintharn half of tbe
country, yet lis baleful influence extended
to tho northern half. A few years ugo, there
were but few people In this country who
were not apologists ol slavery.
In a certain senso, however, two civiliza
tions clashed, if civilization can be said to
have a home where human slavery Is the
chief end of government.
Tbe South bad baronial estates, ancestral
traditions, private tutors for tho young, a few
universities, nn able, educated tew, and igno
rant many, with her millions of bondmen.
The North with its small farms and farm
ers; many workshops filled with free laborers ;
its cbuiches; its free schools and many col
leges; its educated millions, trained to partic
ipate in public affairs, confronted the South.
The m'gbty forces of each section, gen
erated under the same Constitution, face to
face, grappled to death. If the South suc
ceeded Ibe Federal Union was ended; a new
nation would have been born with the em
bodiment ot slavery in its organic law, and
barbarism would have had a further lease of
life. If the North succeeded it meant slavery
overthrown, and the domination of Northern
ideas by the natural and certain workings of
It meant education for tho masses; freedom
for nil; homes for the many; dignity of labor;
homogenlty of Interests; better highways;
more fruitful fields; churches and school
houses for the blessing nnd enligbtonmeut ot
all; mill); factories; ships, and prosperity and
happiness for tbe many.
Was ever there so momentous an issue
The soldiers and sailors who rest bere and
all over the land, hy their numbers, testify to
the fury of the conflict.
Tbe fruits of the victory won for you and
me, and for posterity, my countrymen, will
compensate for the bloody sacrifice.
All that was hoped for, from victory to the
North, h;s been realized. Tbe North as well
as tbe South has profited in a moral and ma
terial sense by tbe results of tbe conflict.
The North Is living on a higher plane of
civilization by reason of the war, and indi
vidual purposes are purer than ever before.
To my comrades of tbe G. A. R., and to
the other comrades of the march, bivuic,
camp and battle-field, now belnre me, I might
say much to recall the hardships, privations,
sufferings and lurid battle scenes tbey have
passed through, but other ccarlons are moro
appropriate for that than this.
Here we meet rather to let the dead speak
and fllently remind us of high duties ful
filled, and of yet other high duties, lying in
our pathway for future fulfillment.
In 18C3, our first martyr President, In dedi
cating the first National cemetery of the
United Stab a, Blending on the battle-riven
fl-ld ol Gettysburg, inspired, we may believe,
by the nearness of his own martyrdom, ar.d
In tbe presence ot tbe fresh graves ot thou
sands ol loyal dead, told tbe whole noble,
tender story of their sacrifice, nnd tbe duty
of tbe living, In simple words, by his utter
ance made immortal. Can we Imagine that
tall form, borne down by the too great weight
of a Chief Magistrate ol tbe then slnckin Re
public; standing on that hallowed field, over
the mangled bodies ol the fallen of the two
contending armies wbo were there recently at
death grips; with tbe uncertainty of the fu
ture of the Union and liberty oppressing him,
and with his solemn lace, beaming with the
light of live, turned heavenward) uttering in
mrasureu tonrs, tuese worui:

great battle field of that war. We have come
to dedicate a portion of that Held as a final
retting place for those who bere (rare ithelri
lives mat tbe nation might live. It Is alto
gether fitting and proper that we should do
this. Hut In a larger sense we cannot dedi
cate, we cannot consecrate, we cannot hallow
this ground. The brave men, living and
dead, who struggled hero, have consecrated It
far above onr power to add or detract. The
world will little note, nor long remember
what we sny here; but It can never forget
what they did here. It Is for ns, tbe (liv
ing, rather to be dedicated bere to the unfin
ished woik which they wbo fought h.re have
thus far so nobly advanced. It Is rather for
us to be here dedicated to the great task re
maining before us; that from these honored
dead we lake, increased devotion to that atuee
for which they gave the last full measure of
devotion; that we here highly resolve ithat
tbes4 dead shall not have died in vain;ithat J
iois nation, under uoa, snail nave a new
birth of freedom ; and that the government ol
the people, by the people nnd for the people,
shall not perish- from tbe earth."
With nil tbe battlefields of the war In ret
rospect, how supremely appropriate these.
President Lincoln fulfilled life's mission;
ho upheld a tottering nation through dangers
more manifold than was ever before experi
enced; he was God's Instrument to lead from
bondage a race, wronged and oppressed
thtough the centuries; he heard tbe voice of
(luil, amid the thunders and smoke, ol battle,
commanding lilm to "proclaim liberty
throughout all the land, unto all the inhabit
The Journey from slavery to freedom was
through the Red Sea of slaughter, and
through tbe Wilderness of War's desolation.
When, In fulfillment of his august human
mission on earlb, he reached the confines of
that wilderness, standing as upon Pisgah's
mountain heights, with the land of hope, the
laud of peace and the land of promise in the
foreground, like Moses, the servant of tbe
Lord, to lead a chosen race from bondage to
liberty, when he bad beheld the promised
land, "villh his eyes,"
"By Nebo's lonelr mountain
"On this sldo Jordan's wave"
He was not permitted to enter there
in. Was President Lincoln, by reason
of disobedience, also unworthy to enter tbe
land of hot), peace and promise; had be too
smote with a rod, rather than spoke, to a
Mcrlbah's rock ot faith, to bring forth the
wafers ot life and liberty; or did a nation's
slna alco demand the blood of the sublimest
character of tho world, to complete the

As citizens and late soldiers of the regen

tbls beautiful, solemn ceremony, and in the
presence of the silent dead, remember aad re
new our pledges and promises made to the
widow and tbe fatherless when battle-clouds
hung darkly over and around us.
And here, with unison of hearts, repeat the
sublime language of Abraham Lincoln, in bis
last official public address: "With malice to

ness in tbe right as God gives us to tte the
right, let us finish tbe work that we are In,
to bind up the nation't wounds, to care tor
him wbo shall have borne the battle, and for
his widow and his orphans, to do all which
may achieve and cherish a just and a lasting
peace between ourselves and all nations.!'
And let us not, in the observance of today,
be unmindful ot thr suffering of our chief
tain, General Grant, tbe only successful leader
ot a million of men In battle array, who Is
now wailing with characteristic calmntss for
And, finally, a fitting termination of tblt
day, standing uncovered In tbe midst o these
