YOU wore the blue and I
* the gray
On this historic fie!d.
And all throughout the dread
We felt our muscles steeled
For deeds which men ma.y
Nor page of history ever show
My father, sir. with soul to
Throughout the day and
Stood on old Little Round Top
And watched the changeful
And. with a hoarse, inspiring
Held up the stars and bars on
At last the flag went down,
Ah, you can guess the rest—
I never saw hi./* face again.
My father's loyal breast
Is strewn with the sweet flow'rs,
That seem to love this sacred
The smoke of battle's cleared
And all its hatreds, too.
And as I clasp your hand today
O man who wore the blue.
On yonder hill I seem to see
My father smiling down to me
A WAS REMjWSCENCE
How Longstreet Bluffed Custer at Ap-
From the sound of Bring in front it
was evident that Gordon and Fitz Lee
Vere attacking Sheridan's cavalry,
who outnumbered them four to one.
and had also the comforting assurance
that the Army of the James was not
far Off to support them if needed.
When my march brought me to the
hill I espied Generals Longstreet and
Alexander, chief of artillery, sitting on
a loir. Alexander got up and came to
ward me. 1 Bald to him: "General Lee
Instructed me to stop here for orders
What d<> you want me to do?" Be re
plied, "Turn into that fleld on the right
and park your guiis." Then be added
in a low tone, "We are going to surren
der today." We had been thinking
that it mipht bare to come to that
sooner or later, but when the shock
cameil was awful. Alexander cam
ed me to beep the news quiet, and 1
moved into the field designated with a
heavy heart and parked my batteries.
Colonel Haskell'a battalion was al
ready in park near me in the same
field. The Bring continued in front for
some time, and Gordon drove the *In
viuciMe troopers" m< re than a mile
and sent back a larpre number of pris
oners and two pieces of artillery which
he had captured. The latter were
placed in Haskell's park. Bad it been
only Sheridan that barred the wav the
surrender would not have occurred at
Appomattox, but Gordon drove back
the cavalry only to find himself con
fronted by the Army of the James.
and Its bayonets could now be seen
advancing through the trees, and the
road was blocked with ten times bis
numbers. It was then that a tins of
truce was raised by agreement with
Sheridan and Gordon,
Presently a Federal calvary officer
was observed coming down the road
toward our forces. He wore his hnir
very Ion?, and it was of a llgbt or
reddish color. In his hand he carried
a white handkerchief, which he con
stantly waved up and down. He In
quired for General I.cc and was di
rected to General Loncstreet upon the
bill. Upon approaching the peneral
be dismounted .and said: "General
Longstreet, in the name of General
Sheridan I demand the surrender of
this army. I am General Coster."
General Longstreet replied: "I am n<>t
in command of this army. General
Lee is. ami he has gone bark to meet
General Grant in regard to surrender"
"Well," said Caster, "no matter about
General Grant We demand the sur
render be made to us. If you do not
do so we will renew hostilities, and
any bloodshed will be upon your
head." "Oh, well/* raid Longstreet,
"if yon do that 1 will do my best to
■ eel \ .v." Then, turning to his staff,
be said: "Colonel Manning, please
order General Johnston to move his
division to the front and right of Gen
eral Gordon. General Latrobe, please
order General Pickett forward to Gen
eral Gordon's left. Do it at once."
Custer listened with surprise depicted
iijhin his countenance. lie had not
thought so many of our troops were
at hand with Longstreet He, cooling
off Immediately, said: "General, prob
ably we had better wait until we hear
from Grant and Lee. I will speak to
General Sheridan about it. Don't
move your troops yet." And be mount
ed and withdrew in a much more quiet
style than in his approach. As be
passed out of hearing Longstreet said
quietly, with that peculiar chuckle of
his. "Ha. ha, that young man lias uev
er learned to play the same of 'brag.' "
The divisions of Johnston and Pickett
were only a myth and had no exist
ence whatever after the tipht at Five
Forks.—From "In Camp and Field."
A veternn of the civil war was asked
if be felt Uiat interest in Memorial
day was dying. He answered the
question with a question:
"You will die, won't you? Nothing
lasts forever. It's natural that this
change should come."
"Then you aren't Indignant that a
feeling of Indifference should be man
ifested by a younger generation?"
The old soldier said:
-No. Why should I be? I don't
care a h';,' Talking about the war
won't make heroes. I dare say if
there was an occasion for it the
young men of today would make as
pood a record as they made forty
years ago. But you can't expect
young people today to feel about the
war the way we older fellows do.
They aren't close enough to it.
"I know that's so. because when 1
was a boy I was just about as far
away from the war of 1811' as you
are from the civil war, and I know
people didn't take any account of it.
It's just as well, it seems to me. Wat
is a bad remedy—necessary some
times, but bad, all the same.
"Naturally I don't like to see the
observance of .Memorial day becom
ing more slack. It is an indication of
the advance of time— nothing more.
You can't say it shows deficient pa
triotism, for it's simply human na
ture, and I can't see that we're any
different from what we've ever been.
"People aren't any more selfish than
they ever were. It seems to me that
they are just the same. The old sol
diers have had a good deal dune for
them."—New York Evening Post
