(By 0. (. TiUIpson)
Some of this will be a repetition of
things I have written in the past.
Spottsylvania County, Va., is one of
the great battle 'grounds of the 'world.
Compared as to numbers with the mil
lions marshaled upon 'the fields of
France and Belgium in the recent
great iwar, lSpottsylvania alppears
small. But to comparo with Napoleon
and Wellington on the same fields a
century before, it is different. It is
doubtful Lf either -the French or
British army at Waterloo exceeded in
numbers the army of Hooker at Chau
cellorsville, or that of Grant and teade
at -the 1WIlderness. Chancellorsville
(1863) was called one of the great
victories of the centi ry.
But it is not numbers that consti
tute the greatness of the event, nor
the numerleal strength of the army
that will determine 'the rank the com
niander will -be awarded among the
world's great soldiers. Any other
view of it would seriously impair, if
not obliterate Jackson's claims (so
grievously correct) to undying fame.
It -is Jackson's famous Shennandoah
Valley campaign of 1862, a period in
twhich he held separate command, that
carried his name and fame beyond the
seas. In this brief time (about three
months) his force at no time exceeded
twenty thousand men, and with which
he fought and beat three separate Fed
eral armies, each superior in numbers
and all manner of equipment, to his
own. It is the extent to which the
leader's achIevements go, as coml
pared with the men and resources at
his command, and the obstacles to ov
ercome. This reasonting applies to
the achievements of great Lee, acting
in a larger sphere.
Tried by this test, the great soldiers
of 'the North-Grant, Sherman, Sheri
(lan--fall behind Lee, Jackson, Forrest
and I1ampton, and cannot take rank
with them with the future historians.
Come to 'think, in the recent great
war, all the parties to the conflict had
great lea(ers, hut there is no proof
that .l'e and .Jackson had an equal
on ci-ther si(le. Let's see: there was
Germany with vastly superIor forces,
aid with an equipment that -gave an
appearance of the greatest war mia
chine the world had ever seen, held in
cheek, repulsed for long drawn out
weeks and months, by the ill prc
pare(l forces of the allies. I would
think that military men lwould say
that with Lee and Jackson leadership
Paris would have fallen.
On -the other side it. In but fair to
say that, while giving all credit for
allied leadership, after AmeriCa vent
into 'it, 'the fight was not won until
Germany was outnumbered. Who can
think of any of the 'world war leaders
living in history as will Leo and
liut let's come back to tlhe Rapa
htannock. It is natural that we boys
hark back to the old cami) and battle
field. One sixth of the losses of the
four' years of wanr occurred in this
0old county. Fredlericksbur'g, Dec. 13,
