Soldiers of America Return
as V ictors Over Autocracy
Back From a Distant Land, Bearing no Spoils and With no Cap
tives Chained to Chariots?How the Grand Review Impress
ed a Veteran of the Civil War?Significance of the Two Great
Historical Events as Seen by a Veteran of 1861-65.
Member of Congress from California, and Past
Senior Vice Commander-in-Chief. G. A. R.
N<> PATRIOTIC man or woman could have
witnessed without emotion the grand spec
tacle of the passing along the broad avenues
c. the National Capital of the first body of Ameri
c :n soldier-, to cross the Atlantic and plant the
Stars and Stripes on Eu
ropean soil. The thun
derous applause which
greeted the returning
veterans v. herever they
appeared, and which ex
tended in one great wave
oi sound along Pennsyl
vania avenue from the
Capitol to the White
House. attest* <1 the
unanimity and sincerity
or the feeling of pride
which animated every
American uho was pri
vileged to witness the
grandest and most in
spiring spectacle of which Washington has been
the scene since that other grand review which
marked the conclusion of the great Civil War more
than a half century a?o. The spectacular "triumphs" j
which were accorded lo the victorious generals of
ancient Rome upor* tbtn returning from battlefields
hi foreign lands, as drpictecf by historians were,
without doubt, processions of graphic and barbaric
splendor. With captive kings and queens bound to
the chariots of the disdainful conqueiors. with
thousands of distressed prisoners, men, women and
children, presently to be reduced to slavery, and
with the display of the rich spoils of the conquered
peoples, they could hardly have failed to impress
the spectator^ as they passed in martial splendor
through the streets of the Imperial City, with the
warlike strength and power of their successful sol-!
diers and generals.
The soldiers ot America also returned from!
distant lands as the victors, with their brave allies,
in the greatest war oi the world's history. They
returned, however, a* they went abroad, without j
ostentation or display, and they bear with them no
captives to be reduced to slavery, and no spoils of \
war They return as the powerful defenders of
their country against the arrogant assumptions and
attacks of an autocratic nation, which sought to en
force its will upon our own republic, as well as j
upon the other nations of the earth While they
return with nothing but their arms and habiliments,
and no visible spoils of war or sii'ns of the con
queror, we who witnessed their passing yesterday
saw in the firm young faces of the gallant soldiers
of the First Division, in their stalwart limbs, in
their martial bearing, in the free and untrammeled,
swing of their march through the Capital as the
representatives of nearly 4,000,000 of their com-1
rades, an assurance of devotion to their country and,
a guarantee of capacity for armed power in times |
of national danger that inspired in the licans of all
Americans love and gratitude to these brave young j
soldiers, and thankfulness to God that the fires of j
patriotism, love of country and devotion to America i
burn a* brightly as ever in the hearts of millions
oi true men like these.
