The tlrst was that I,ee on the manii did not desire to capture flettysliurn, which was an In Fliltillcant village of some 2,00 people.

ICnrly wns ordored back, and Ihus It hnppened that tho t'onfederutes came from the north of (letlynburg and thn fnloii army from tho foiiHi of It. Just the reverse of this might bo Im agined hv nnv but the careful render. The illrferent Incidents proceeding tho fight were related, Including the resigna tion of Ciciifial Hooker, and the appoint input of (leneral Meade to the command on June 2, 1s03. lie expected to fight l.eo fifteen miles Fouth of (lettyshurg. It was thn heroic Reynolds whom Meadn had sent forward, whose tullltnry eyo took In the situation at (lettyshurg, and who nt once notified Meade Hint It wna tho dace to tight the battle. The ilnit I- of Itpynolds nnd how thn Cnlon foi cps had to fall back on the tlrst day wcio mentioned und gloat pralso was given to tho Cnlon gonntnl for the way he hrld the enemy, tltl tho whole of tlie Union tinny reached tha Held. Pickett's gland charge uctoss tho open stretch of ground between the two rldgon wlieie nctiernt Htnntmrd's Vermonters made their reputation on the third day of tho battle. The magnlllcence of that attack could be easily Imnglned from Hip lay of tln ground, and as dipt. Long ipinarked, l'lckett's 1S.00.1 men enme u ciiiss as If on parade. They hnd nbout a mile to cover on the open plain nnd their sternly march excited the admira tion of the Union soldiers. Tho way thry were cut up by the Union forces, and how much thnt end was contributed to by the Hanking movement executed under orders of General Plntmard were referred to by the lecturer with high praise. He summed up that part of the subject with the remark thnt the work of the Vermont tioops on that day would be remembered ns long as the granite monuments erected nt Gettys burg held touetr.er against tho attacks of time. dipt. Lonir also reminded the Vermont ers that Just In front of them was the scene where they hud captured the bat tery and nlfo where dipt, l-energon nnd tho men of Co. A. had tAken tho rebel sharp shooters from the Roger's house; nothing inn be more peaceful thnt the field of liettysluirg at that moment. The warm sun was beating down with July h.eat, and little remained to remind the visitors of a great conflict hut the monuments; nnd the lines of batteries which nre rompofed of condemned e.ri non of the kind med In tho war. It requires a font of the Imagination tl bridge over the forty-live interesting years, and people the plain with dying and dead men, the struggling hosts of combatants, and the awful tear of the ?00 cannon ns they answered ench other irom ridge to lldge. In his three lectures, dipt T.nng point ed out the slgnllleancp of tlie "l)eir.-i Den." "The Valley of Dent! " between it, ami "Uttle Round Top," and many other points nf interest. It was lem.irked that tiie spot known ns tho "Wheatflohl" had been fought over live times hy tho con tending armies. 'Hie famous "Peach Or chard" was shown. It Is now bare of trees. An orchntil of younger trees ii nenrbv but the old one could only he re cognized as the Veimonters drove up to it hy the signboard nailed to a telegraph pole. How much depended on the cav alry fight between the Stuart and (Iresg divisions.! ndlng In the defeat of tho form er, nnd thus preventing tho carrying out of I.ee's plan to have Stuart attack Meade's rear while Pickett charged him In front was fully gone Into but no fx planatlon could be fo lucid as, the ride over tlie actual ground. 'I he third and llnal discourse was de voted to difiVrnnt objects nf tlie b-ittle In detail. A complete tour of the Held was made both In regard to the Union and Confederate positions. The "Nation al Cemetery" was also visited. In all .l.dO bodies of soldiers aie burird there of whom CCD who were killed on the tlrst day of fiettyaborg nnd whose bodies wero stripped of clothing thus making Identification Impossible, make up the unknown dead, which nlmost ocpinls In pathetic history the greater number of unknown who lie asleep in the Arlington Cemetery nt Washington. Hut the latter have been honored In the well-Known lines called the "Hlvouac of tlie Dead," which lias given them an Identity Iip yond that nf most soldiers. Photographs were lakea of the Vermont veterans and those nccompnnving them on tho Held of Gettysburg, nnd a sln:t explanation was Riven at the nvui.tni nt erected by the 13th Itrglment of U.e incident in tlio career of dipt R"nwn i which Is depleted by the bronze Hgure on top The State monument surmount ed with General Rtnnnard's stntue m ir by was found to he nn nppt oprlnte shaft to his memory. Much admlratli.a was exprersed to see the Vermont monuments erected nt Gettynbnrg. The nnti.miil monument fn the Gettysburg n met ry, thnt was elected by New York Ht ite to her fallen sons, In the same groin. and the no monument put up b tho u..-. ,-n-ment In memory of the rogulnr pimps who gave up their lives are In ;. ilnts apart fmm the oidlnay tn.i "Ms They are massive and beautiful ..t t. snme time. Vermont howevi-r I r.,, teason to be ashamed o4 what o . )uxx done to keep green tho noble d is i,f her soldiers. Th" cnmptlre at tho court I i , n Gi ttysburg, Krldny owning ii.'oi.er If, was one of those Interesting lti,, r ing.i which Vermonters have i...,K accustomed to hold. It was 11I...1.. idit p. in., when Col. II. O. Clark 1, i-, .':, the veterans, their voh and Pleads, from the l.'agle lintel ti) the ()f meeting and from the time thin ,i,K(. Palmer, president of the asboi t it..i, t .j k the chair until tho laFt rpee. ',. i,icn was mnde by Col. Albert Clink Hus ton, the flow of comradeship and good fellowship never flasged. As 1 Ini'im m, Judge Palmer had the happy knm It .,f Introducing one, nnd nil on the jj0. gramme n tho way that gave tin m a gooi' stait. In his Introductory remarks ,IihIr0 Palmer said lu- llkn n dream It must seem to those who now reeogni,., iu, greatness of the Union that a hub. over 40 years ago one-half of tho country de sired to disrupt lt. Within tho memory of men prcsent'li serloux nnd determined attempt had been made to attain that end; thown, he added who believe. (,ut tho spirits of tlie dead participated ) the cares and trlalu of this life would ha- no dltllculty in accepting the possi bility that the splrltH nf hruvo men who were hulled nt Gettysburg were not n. ilifferent to their comrades m, earth. "I nnt u believer In Christianity," m,,j the chairman, "and I have the abiding faith that If tho roll call could be miulo. Btautlful and First Class Ivers & Pond PIANO COST WO, will sell to quick buyer for 100,., This Is an opportunity that does not como to ono hut onco In a lifetime. Address li, M, II . Ilssex Junction, Vt , and a date will hu ar ranged (or Inspection. of those tneti nf both nrmlps their verdict would be loynlty to our country nnd our ting." The sentiment was loudly npplnuded nnd It was one of tho most touching nnd effecthe remarks of the evening, that brought fotth many clever things In which humorous cplsodo had a full nnd acceptable hearing. The tltst speaker was Col. A. C. Hrown who wiih Introduced us the ranking offi cer of the leplment now alive. Col. Irh-owii despite his years proved to bo full of vigor and reminiscence of war days. No oiip can walk over thnt battle Held said Col. Urown without thanking God for what wiih dono there. Tho speaker concluded by snylng u happy word 111 support of the Gettysburg high way to Washington. Hefore culling on ex-Governor Ormsbco of Itntndon, the chairman lematked ho hoped tho people of Gettyhhuig in tho hall would tint think the Vermonters were desirous of making any unjust claims of what they hnd done. They rec ognized they were hut u pntt of one army and they also know they wero guests of the people of the town, that tlmy were In fact visiting an Important pinoo In the history of tho country. When Governor Ormshee ndvanecd to the ciiitro of the Hoor ids gray hair, strong features: nnd strong urgument won hhn nn attentive reception. Gover nor nrmsbeo touched upon the great work done hy the hullo. who were de voted to the war. Who can forget he said that In tears and sighs nnd sorrows utifpeakable they had helped to send father", husbands nnd broters to tho ftont. Who could forget that thoe noblo bands or ladles while the boys were l.llllng In the snuar"s were making things we were supposed to need when we went away. "They were made In tf ars." This great tribute to tho patt so many American women took In the war was concurred In In a way that Fhowcd It had touched a tender chord of sympathy. After more Interesting re marks Covet nor Ormee ended by sny lng that some time ngo he might li.ivis thanked the cnmiaibs In tho name of the Stat", but he desired as a repre sentative of the i:th Vermont to thank the members of tho ISth Regiment with nil the ex-efflco power ho possessed for the honor he had by helm; among them. Ml r. Mudgctt followed In u p.itiVjtlc tecltatlon telling of the heroism of a drummer boy. The chnlrman in n few felicitous re marks drew attention to H.illtmore and how It was disliked for n long time ny Union soldiers. Hut all that was chang ed. Comiade Meigs, was 11 resident of that rlty and he had brought a friend with him now thnt H.-iltlmoie was no longpr hostile us In former days. Comrade Goodrich t:ii then Introduced and his message from Haltlmore was such that the camp Hie accepted with out criticism. With the remark that he had nlwnvs a warm place In his heart for Lafayette Post, N. V., the chairman Introduced Col. II. O. Clark, who said hi- was proud of the p.st nnd proud of the 1,1th Regi ment He would never leave either. Col. Clark then made a couple of Interesting mni.uncemeiits. One was thnt arrange ments had been mnde to leave for Washington Saturday afternoon Instead of on Sunday, and thnt President Roose velt would receive the veterans nt the Whlto House Monday afternoon. What proved to be an historical document wnr. lead by col. Clark. It was the requisi tion made In the town for supplies by General IZarly, June 2fi, 1M. just a few day before the icittle of Gettsburs. The town wn. ordered topiovldo quantities of hats, M,nes. 7,000 pounds of Hour, l.nrk) pounds of meal and the like. The reply of the town authorities when read Informed the Conferedate general their means would not permit them to do as requlied, but that they wen. willing to call on the citizens to rupply what wit. possible. Ah tho event proved, however, they were relieved of doing anything and Grnerel Uurlv de parted before tho CI hours were expired. Tiie letter is filed In tho court houso whoie It Is carefully preserved. Mrs. Mfrrlll of Knosburgh Palis lesponded to the Imitation of the chaliman and sang "Illinois" very acceptably. Col. H. W. Allen read a letter from John H. Crnn dail of Sterling, III., assistant surgeon, legtettlng his Inability to bo present. He Bent Instead the follnwlnt greeting: "The 13th Rrgimeirt; To tho living and dead; the tlrst, tho last, the best." Short Wieeches wre in turn made by Comra lo Shepherd of tho 11th Regiment, Comrade N. P. Palmer of the i!,th Regiment, und Common Clark of the 16th Regiment. Judge Palmer nt this point said all would tenietnber nn officer of the regi ment he was glad to name; there wnrt no braver man, who went on the Held of Gettysburg than Capt. John Ixinergan of Co. A., and though ho was no longer among them, he had a son present, and all members of tho regiment would be glad to welcome him. Thonuis l.onergnn of Montreal expros.-od a few words of thankfulness nnd appreciation and he was followed by D. Rlnghnm of Past Orange, N. J., who accompnnled the Vermonters from that State. Mr. lilng hnm remnrkrd he reached tho United States too late to be a veteran, hut not too Into to admire the great work thcy had done, nnd his one regret was he hud no frhnre In It. Col. Albert Clnrlc of Iloston wns tho Inst speaker. In the course of some Inter 'sting nnd well expressed re marks Col. Clark suggesti'd the regi ment shtiuhl start a movement to do honor to Gen. O. O. Howard nt Gettys burg by having a suitable monument erected to li I III. As regards tho national parkway from Gettysburg to Washington, Col. Clark gave several reasons in fnvnr of a Uncoln memorial, worthy of tlu man and another thnt would fittingly add to tho Importation of the hattle Held. Thn cnmtlre was brought to a close by tho singing of "America." Those who took advaiitngo of tho excursion iiHide from patriotic reasons report It wiih an Ideal tlino to visit both Gettysburg and Washington. Tho tlmo at Washington was spent In elglitspplng. Arlington ceniPtpry, Mount Vernon, nn4 tho govprnment buildings wero all vlslti'd nnd ad mired. When tho Vermont excursionists stood before President Roosevelt. Mon day afternoon, October 111, they felt as proud of the meeting as It was obv. ously agreeable to the Chief Magis trate of thn nation. He wns In good humor, and did not ns usual content himself with n Elmplo hand shako. Ho spoke cheerfully to tho veternim ns they passed hefore him and now nnil then us something wns said Hint pleased htm as tho line moved along ho laughed heartily. The party was conducted to th East room where they awaited tho coining of tho President. They wero not kept long. With nn ceremony President lloosovelt, accompanied by a military aid, entered tho room. Judgu Palmer prefneed thn presentation by a few happy remarks Forty-six yeais ngo, ho said, tho Vermont brlgndo did their duty at Gettysburg, and the remnntit of them nccoinpnnled by wives and families had euinn to stt tho bat tlefield. After doing so they had travelled on to Wu3llBton tu pay their respects to tho Preslditit Jndgo Palmer added In that connection it was hut thpr duty to nssuro the President of t doll- apprecia tion of what he liad done for American citizenship and what ho had nocomullsh ed to make American life hotter and nobler. There wan Just enough In tho remarks to Induce tlio President to speak from the heart It wns a great pleasure to meet Vermont' rs, ho Mild. Hut a few years ngo on the account of his visit to Gettysburg he had noticed what they had done for the country. 1 wan mice In a Uttlo war myself said President lloosovelt. It was not lg, hut It was till there was." The allusion cut tho ground from 1111. dor ceremony and made the visitors feel at home. President Rno-evelt added ho was deeply touched by the remarks mado as to what ho had done to keep up the high level of Ann rleau manhood. It wan nlwuya his comb Men that tho better a 11111 ii'h work was tho better citizen he made In pence. "1 know Veimont well," lidded the President, "and were I asked to point out the Statu where the citizens keep closest to tho Ideals wo should like to ceo ever where In this country I should come pretty near Ttlng for Vermont. All I h.ivo been trying to do Ih to npply the principles vou men stand for. I want to see this government "hie to boll Its head aloof, unci able to stand any move of ugKiessloti mnde against It, nnd nt thn snme time cm ful to treat other nations right A man has no right to suffer Imposition or wrong, and I hope to be see the conduct of the United Stales modeled on that principle. It us do our duly abroad and at home, nnd we can do It If we are true to the prin ciples of this got eminent. "When you went lo battle each took an Interest In the man alongside of him. It made no dlffeience what ho was so lang as he would stnnd put.' This characteristic hit of the Horsevclt doctrlpe was glt.n in a way that he spoke. He talked as If he meant what he said. The Pi -sklent closed by once more expressing his pbfisuto nt being able to gtfot the Vermont veterans, their families and frlen'.s. Koch one then tiled before him and ttus Introduced by Col. II. O. Chuk und Col. II. W. Allen. Tho greeting of the Ptesldent was one of the most appreciative bits of ndvlco on the duties of American citizenship that can be Imagined. The party loft the White louse Invigorated In spite of nil their sight see'r.g. Immediately aftrr tho reception nt tho White House thn wholu party by Invita tion of Mr. and Mrs. Henry A.
