Speech of Mr. John II. Oberly
AT THE MOUND CITV NATIONAL
' CEMETERY, MAY CCth, 1979.
After the strewing of flowera a meeting
was organized at tlie monument, nnd Mr.
Oberly, having been introduced by the
president of the day, spoke ns follows:
Ladlei ami Gentlemen:
g. Yesterdiiy afternoon I was informed that
an emergency existed requiring from mo un
address ou tliis occasion. The gentlemen
invited to render hero to-day the usuul ver
bal tribute to the memory of the brave men
who Bleep their last sleep in this National
cemetery, were, I was assured, unable
tom present. "We hope, therefore,"
was the language of perswiwion used
to mc, "you will rise to the emergency and
make ready to givo us a speech to-morrow."
in response to thia urging being unable
to employ n wise relusal of a com
pelled request I shall, with I fear
undue consideration born ol haste,
link together, In uncouth sentences, ft few
thoughts not, I hope, inappropriate to this

that in no more titting way can the ppirit
of patriotism be strengthened the mem
ory of the soldiers of the Union be kept
green in our hearts than by thus meeting
at the graves of our dead heroes, and while
decorating with flowers the mounds that
swell alwve their patriotic dust, dedicating
ourselves anew to the cause ot liberty pnd
nationality for which they bravely fought
and nobly died.
This is true. Rut how can this renewed
dedication of ourselves to the cause' spoken
of be consummated without a clear exposi
tion of what is meant by
LIHEItTY AND NATIONALS i?
And, since your doxy is not always my
doxy, how are we to indulge in such discus
sions without making this heroic res 'u"
place of fiery valor, mouldering cold md
low, a forum for wrangling politicians?
Forbid the thought ! Rut, notwithstanding
the high considerations ot forbearance that
invoke us to put from oil our feet the shoes
ot partisans, reminding us, with this invo
cation, that the place whereon we tread is
holy ground, we would do injustice to the
(but of. the. Umtm xUiuil ..If, out of
respect for the sor'ivcness P'th-lravc
men who championed the Lost Cause, wc
should preserve silence on occasions of this
kind and refuse to justify the t.-hmiphant
nnd good cause in which these soldiers died,
and express our deterurnation 'hat the fruits
of their victory shall not be dissipated by
reaction or be lost by revolution however in
sidiously inaugurated nnd carried on with
whatever skill of dissimulation by hypo
Let us, therefore, with hasty glance re
view some chapters of the history of the
Republic to ascertain, if we can, the car-es
that led to the struggle in which died the
men whose dust rests beneath our feet to
ascertain, if possible, the results of 'o
struggle and speculate concerning the
probable ctlects of those results upon the
future of nur government
DEfLAK.VTIOX OK INDEPKXDENt .5
the seed of the War for Free Soil the war
of ISCl-j was sown; but it was long in
bearing fruit nearly a century. That
seed was the assertion of an old truth that
all men are created equal. It was asserted
in the face of the fact of the existence of
human slavery which contradicted
it and branded it
tering generality. And after the ;c'orv
of the first war with F'lglmd after we
had taken a place among tho nations of the
earth the truth of human equality seemed
to bo lost out ot our code of political ethics
and the doctrine of human ineqtiali.y be
came dominant. It grew to fruition in the
prosperity of the cotton fields ol the South;
and, at last, the men who advocated it ver
bally and by the cracking of tho slave-
master's whip, sought to hide it in safety
behind a thick veil of nnii-agitation. They
declared discussion of human slaveiy by
its opponents to bo treason against tho gov
ernment, and invoked mob law and mis
chievous political doctrines to their support.
Hut they thus invoked into life monsters
tlmt at last consumed them with relentless
fury. In vain they labored to induce tho
public mind to bo calm. Ousts of passion
stirred it constantly, and finally a storm
lushed it into fury. They culled to their aid
the doctrines of nullification and secession;
but in vain. Jackson killed tho former
with ft threat; and when secession I
raised its audacious arm and struck at tho
government, tho men whose memories wo
honor to-day, with thousatids of others, re
sponded the call ot tho government and iu
a most bloody war destroyed, It root
tiiul branch. With tho doctrine of seces
sion fell tho institution of slavery in be
lilf of which It assaulted tho Union. Ami
thus, resulting from tho Wur of Secession,
vt secured thu right to bo recognized as ft
people possessed of a government based
upon human equality and with power
enough to compel the respect of foreign
nations and the obedience of its own citi
zens to its laws.
Generally, these facts are
THE Gil EAT HESLLT8 OK THE WAlt.
Rut when you seek to definitely deter
mine to what extent the war carried the
idea of nationality you and your neighbor
may differ nnd differ probably on tho same
fundamental idea that has heretofore often
created differences between the great polit
ical parties of the government. I shall
not therefore make an attempt on this
occasion to define tho present relations
of the general and State governments to
each other. Such an attempt at this time
would doubtless result iu arousing partisan
n.ciings m creating heart-burnings among
those who should be friends among those
who, although they may differ in their pol
itics ns much as tho flowers that lie upon
these graves differ iu color, should to-day
give forti in their utterances tho odor
of patriotism words of devotion to
tho Republic in honor of tho men
who died that our common country
might live, and who, by the sacrifice they
and their comrades made, removed from tl.
soil of tho Republic the stain of human
Suffice it to say that the irovernmont of
the Union is no longer even reproached by
ns enemies with weakness. On an hundred
battle fields, where the valor of the North
nnd South met in the tremendous shock of
battle, the federal government proved to
tho world it ability to enforce its will upon
all who may question its right to rule. On
those battle fields tho power of the nation
crushed the ghost of nullification and the
reality ot secession, shattered tho manacles
ot tour millions of slaves and crowned the
freedmon with manhood, nfterwards digni
fying that manhood, as one of the conse
quences of the conflict, with full citizenship.
And to the men who sleep in tho shadow
ot tins beautiful monument that lifts its
head towards tho sky in the sunshine of
this delightful day to them, and to their
brave comrades in arms, we owe the bless
ings of a preserved Union, n vindicated
government nnd universal libertv in the

THE STOHY OK THE WAK
has been told over nnd over again and need
not be repeated by me to-day.. It belongs
to history, on tho pagc9 of which it will
shine with brightness until tho last syllable

when to-d.y has become obscured by the

And it will also give to humanity every

behind them foot-prints on tho sands of
time foot-prints which perhaps other pa
tiiots, in tho dark hours that may hereafter
fall upon tho Republic, seeing may take

And, my fellow citizens, their example
and the sacrifice they mado for the govern-
ment, havo certainly made our future secure
have made the results ot the war facts
that cannot bo disturbed. All now
is peace, but if 'reaction should attempt to
rob us ot the fruits of tho victory secured
by tho soldiers of tho Union, tho example
of tho men who died for, tho good cause
will again nrouso the dormant energies of
the government into terrible activity.
i ins morning I read again a familiar noem
by Longfellow from which I mny draw
tO enforce this thotlL'hf. I slinH nnf onnt
- - v.w
tho poet but tell his story partly in homely
In medimval Rome, an imago stood with '
its ami in air,
"And on ita lifted finger, Phlulnf? clear,
A BOldcn ring with tuo device, 'Strike bore.'"
Tho people wondered but wont on their
several ways. At last a learned clerk, ob
serving the spot whereon tho shadow of tho
finger fell, went at midnight and delved
and found a secret stairway leading under
ground. Passing down ho en tern, 1 n. m,..
cious hall lit by a flaming jewel on the
wan. in the midst stood a fair tubln
covered with cloth of gold. The golden
cups were enchased with rubies
-"and tho plate and knives wore gold.
And fold the breads and viands manltold.
Around It, .silent, motlonles and pad,
Were eeated gallant kulghu in armor find,
"And ladle beautiful with plnmc and zone.
Hut they were stone, their hearts w ithin were stone;
And the vast crowds, stony tn face nnd heart."
At the scene the clerk long gazed in won
der, till, by bis greed impelled, he seized a
goblet anil a knife of gold.
"And suddenly from their seats the jruests upsprang,
The vaulted celling with loud clamors rung,
The archer sped hip arrow, at their call,
Shuttering thu lambent jewel on the w all,
And all was dark around and overhead;
