ADDRESS OF MAJOR J OGDEN
MURRAY.
? ___
The following address was delivered
before a gathering of Confederates.
by Major J. Ogden Murray, one c
the Immortal Six Hundred.
Co.MRA OKs AND FRIENDS;
The peerless women of the world, wi
who w< ie- the gray, believe are th*
wonun of the Southland. In all thai
is grand, we hold that the women ol
the South stain! peerless in the realm
of created things. Seeking an em?
blem ol her, we find the task difficult.
Hut in the floral kingdom, that won?
derful and exquisite exhibit ol the
great love for man. presented to us in
things beautiful, and find for woman
a symbol jd that matchless eombina
tion of beauty and fragrance thc
night blooming cereui. This plant
while generously contributing its odor
and beauty to enrich the earth's treal*
hits of fragrance, modestly conceals
its beauty beneath the veil of Dight
And this is the emblem of our grand
women of the South, who go on and
on in their works of charity and love,
without ostentation or parade.
We are told the brightest gems in a
nations'*coronet are the athel of its
heroic dead, and yet I claim there is
another gem in everv nation's crown
that cannot be overlooked, its bril?
liancy cannot be hid from our view.
What is this priceless gem. you maj
ask'.' lt is the moral fotce of the noble
mother! of the nation that teach the
children the love of liberty, justice
and truth. These arc the principles
that mao all nations great: it is the
principle of Liberty, Truth and Justice
that makos the great statei en, v
sens, and I lav to \ ou,
it was these prii ilea that gave t<>
the South in her hour of pei
iou Davit, Robert E. Lee. Stonewall
Jackson, and the other heroes of the
South, that wrote for all time upon the
- of American history thc grand*
eil itor\ ever told.
There is no people on the face of
this green earth who can boaitol
D as ours: no nation can claim
greater statesmen, nor grander sol
? thar, the states that comp i I
the Confederacy of 1861-65. At our
mother's knee we were taught the
principle! of liberty, justice and truth,
and without the least fear of contra?
diction, 1 say it eas the teachin*
these great principles of the Southern
mother to her boy, that made tho Con?
federate soldier the ideal soldier of
! the world: and I d > not hesitate a ll
the lights before me, that the moral
support given the Confederate armies
daring the great struggle by our brave,
women, was a potent factor in our con?
tinuing th> struggle for four long and
ly years against the fearful odds
wd contended with.
The women of the South were th<
ministerinLr angels of the Confederate
soldiers: they were the inspiration
that gave us comfort and hope in our
darkest days. They are passii^
away, like the men of 1861-66; theil
numbers grow ie>s each year: their
I, once sjolder.. a -e now streaked
with tiie frosts of time: their steps,
like our own, grow slower each day
blt their courage, fidelity, devotior
and loyalty is as superb today as lt
was in the days when red-hanih-d wai
desolated our land, and the invadei
matched with iron heel overthe saerei
soil and wrought ruin upon our home*
Comrades, the grand women of th)
war days are as dear to us today ai
they were in those days when we fol
low' d the Confederacy whither it led
Shall we not tell the world of thes<
grand women, and tell the'r grand oh
story to those who will come after us
Y? s, comrades, we must always tel
this grand old story, for it was writtei
on the pages of time, as the grandes
example of courage, fidelity am
loyalty ever known, and it will al
nayl be the admiration of the bonea
and true men of all time. The couran
of the women of the South was no
lied hy the women of Sparta no
linnie, and today these daughters v
peerless mothers of the South, in thei
organisation of Daughters of th
Confederacy, are teaching to the wc
men of all nations of the earth
eeeon of fidelity and charity won
r Ita learning.
Comrades, who can say who dan
?' say our cause is a lost catlee; wh
can say the Confederate soldier wi
forgotten soldier, while the*
Daugbteriol the Southern Cross Iii
to tell tue grand old story, hande
down to them by their mothers'/ A
most daily these daughters of th
i >nf . | are erecting at some apt
a monument to heroes of the South, c
mark a spot to tell to future peopl
story of the OMO who wore til
gray. When we know all this is bi
ing don--, pray tell me how lt can 1
ll 1 in truth the grand old story <
th- days of \HHl-i\i) will be a forgotU
stot%\? Comrades, when the bugle <
time shall sound taps for you and mi
and the Confederate soldier shall!
but | memory, these worthy dauirhtei
of trie peerless mothers of the Coi
Wet any will tell to posterity yot
grand old story of the past, and U
world will know of JetTeraon Dari
tbe patriot statesman, L*ee, the in
mortal: Jackson, the invincible;
Ashby, the fuoerb: Forrest, the un
conquered: Morgan, the dauntless:
Stewart, the pearled; and the heroic
men who followed the Hag of liberty,
justice and truth. These women will
teach our story to the .lisping babe,
and it will live forever. No good
story loses in the telling. Tell
whatever you will, men of the South,
of thej grand women of the war
days. I do not care how extravagant
your story maj sound to other ears,
the men who wore the gray know it is
true. And we know the women of
1861-65 fairly won our adoration and
all that we can say for them, for their
love, fidelity and loyality to the cause
we loved and lo>t. And right here,
comrades, 1 want to say that I do
honestly believe that the work of the
women of the South has done more to
perpetuate the story of the great con?
flict than has been done in the work of
the- men Of the- South. These girls of
today have the force of character of
their mothers, they have the fidelity
and devotion displayed by their
mothers in the dark days of our peril;
they never faltered in their love for
us, nor in their loyalty to our cause:
they stood with us, bearing their shara
of the burden, and they must have
their page in history with us. If they
do not have their page in the history
of 1v'.l-i;">, the story will not be crm
plete.thc history, false.
Daughters of the Confederacy, your
mothers wrote upon the pages ol fame
in 1861-65 a story that graved
deep upon the h? aits of the I
Crate soldiers. s*o de*?p that time <-an
tot efface it. It is the grandest story
ever told by human tOu|?ue, or written
by the peu of man. lt isa story if
told every hour in the day would lise
none Of tts sweetness nor charm. Tell
it over and over; its telling Will never
turn bitter nor harsh to the ear of the
true Confederate soldier who honestly
wore the gray. To you. daughters of
the Confederacy, your mothers bp
queathed il irv. lt I yours to
tell. Its telling- will gladden the hearts
of the man who wore the jackal of
gray! it will warm his old heart, it
will take him back to those dayl of
hil o ith when his soul was I
?-. bis lanhood tried b\ shot
li. Tell yo story
t is 1 [wish
neil of th nine that
1 could paint for the coming g<
tions the grandest picture- of woman*
the world has ever known, the
woman Of the South during the war
of 1" l-l "
In the- Hook of Life, with the in?
delible ink of Cod. the stor} of the
South?rn woman is written, lt will
never fade, it will never grow dim. If
ld push back for you the curtain
of time that hides from the * iew of
the generations of today the days of
rar, I would do it for a moment
that indeed you see your moth?
ers as they were in the days of the
war. and you would fully understand
why th" Confed -oldier loves
women of the past.
This word picture which I have
tried to paint, comrs - is painted
for you long ago, whoo the sword of
the invader flashed death over our
land, lt was painted by the glare of
the torch thal destroyed our hon.- I,
a picture of conic ration and
love. It is the picture of our women
implicit faith in Con], a true picture
of what your mothers endured. It is
the picture that cheered the Confeder?
ate soldier on to deeds of valor that
startled the- world.
The women of 1861-65 were not only
our ministering angeli, they were
than this, they were our inspira?
tion. It was their sublime courage
that drove black despair from our
bearte*. and bid the dove of hope
spread his while wings about us when
our days were darkest, these granei
women never faltered, they looked up
to God and prayed for us. In the
terrible days of the war. when the
mourning crepe hung from every door,
when every heart in the South was
bowed in grief and pain, it was then
we learned to love and venerate our
nollie- women, and we knew the South?
land possessed the grandest woman?
hood of the world.
Our peerless women cared for us.
they prayed for us. and today we bow
our heads in veneration and love for
the consecration they made for us.
Daughters of the Confederacy of to?
day, as we felt the love of your moth?
ers in the days of the war. we feel to?
day your love and charity toward us
now like the benediction after the
prayer.
Let me tell you of the noble Con?
federate mother*, as she girded on har
only boy the sword, hear her Spartan
farewell, "Co, my son, your country
aeedl your service. Come back to me
in honor, or come back upon your
shield," and that boy was his mother's
consecration upon bar conn trr'i
alar, in Liberty's holy name.
?No braver dames had Sparta.
Ko nobler matrons, Rome."
than those peerless women of the
Southland. Sons and daughters of
today, these noble women were your
mothers, they have handed down to
you the grand old story of the past:
you will hand it to your children,
guard it well and forget it not. B
memories come back to the Confed?
erate soldier, now in his old age: he
lives again In fthe days of the past,
and these memories fill his heart with
joy, they cling about his old heart
like tbe sweet vines of the orient to
the oak, and from his soul steals out
the soft prayer. "OGod. he with us
still, lest we forget, lest we forget"
the ministering angels of the South.
It is sweet to live in retrospection
those days of blood,?we can forget
the pains, in tbe dreamland of retro

iver of Tiiue: we are sailing out i
ie Ocean of Eternity; and yet, and
?t. we donned our suits of gray and
arched away to battle foi- Liberty,

'turn in triumph, to lay at the feet
f our dear ones the laurels honestly

i our enthusiasm of youth we forgot
