X "THE GRANDEST ARMY."
SVe are told in the books that the
battle of Franklin was a sanguinary
fight between -">.',:,? Intrenched Feder?,
als under Schofleld ami in.nan Con fed
orates who stormed the forti Tim bat
tle Is notable tor the remarkable gal
lantry of the Confederates under Hobd,
and tbf stubborn bravery of the Fed
erals under Schofleld. The Fedoral
loss in killed, wounded and missing
Is set down as U, :i2G. wltile the Con
federate loss Is estimated as exceeding
?;.()()(). Whether these facts sustain
the belief of the needless waste of;
Southern life, the following para-j
graphs will be Interesting reading: I
It Is said that some years after the
war. when General Schofleld, who was
then in command 01' the army of the
United States, visited Germany and re
viewed with Bmperor Wilhelm the
army of the German Empire, the Bm
peror in his enthusiasm said as the
last soldier passed in review: "General
Schofleld, Is this not the grandest army
you ever saw?" "No. Bmperor," said
General Schofleld, "it Is not." "Where
did you ever see a grander army?"
was the Quick rejoinder. General Scho
fleld said: "Bmperor, at the battle of
Franklin. Tennessee, in 1801 between
the United States troops and the Con
federates. I saw men In rags and tat
tors, barfooted and hungry, charge the
works behind which my command was
Intrenched. They came on and on.
Nothing could stop their Impetuous
charge, ('.real gaps made by our guns
were closed up. l! Beomed that whole
battalions of the Confederates were
being swept away by our guns. Bui
still onward they came, until 1 moved
my men oul of the trenches to stay
the slaughter. That. Bmperor, was the
grandest army I ever saw." -Abbeville
