VETERANS TO MEET ON BATTLEFIELD Big Reunion of Survivors of Civil War at Gettysburg on ' July 1. 40,000 EXPECTED TO ATTEND Men Who Wore tho Blue and Gray to Again Gather on Ground Made Memorable by His toric Conflict. By EDWARD B. CLARK. WW WASHINGTON. During the 111 first four Says of July Iho Vy battlefield of Gettysburg, Pa., W W will again bo the scene of a meeting of tho JJluo and tho Gray, but this time they will moot In amity and affection. A halfccentury will have passed since last these men of two great American .armies met on this northern field. Then they were faco to faco in deadly conflict, for the Issue, It wae well understood to both con tending forces, was the success of tho southern cause, or tho beginning of its defeat, to be followed by .tho restora tion of the Union as It had been bofOro the first shot was fired at Fort Sum ter. Tho United States governmentand the- government. of nearly every state ill tho tfnlpn have combined, to mako tho Gettysburg reunion of the sofdlers ol tho north and south one of tho great peace events of the century. Tho etato of Pennsylvania some time ago ap pointed a "Fiftieth Anniversary of tho Battle bf Gettysburg commission" to" mako preparations for tho-fpur days1' reunion, at which Pennsylvania ns'a Bta'ta'-was to act as liost to Ma. vety erans of tho war between tjio states, and to tlie thousands ot Visitors who would follow their march to the" field of battleuand appropriated $160,000 for the purpose "of 'entertaining the 'vet erans. 40,000 Veteran's Expected. It is expected that 4O.Q0O veterans of ' thewar, not all o'H them, Jiowover',. survivors ol me uctiysuurg uaiue, wiu he found encamped upon tho field when rovelll'o sounds on tho morning of July, 1. It Will be a different re veille than that which the iifo and drum corps of the two great armies counded fifty years ago. Tho. call to awakening will be a cal) to a peaceful celebration while tho call, to the awak 'suing In July, 1863, was a call of armies to conflict -and. to thousands of men, a call to death. - For years the veterans have been looking forward to this reunion. It is probable that the'ro will be present many thousands of survivors ol the battle. The United States government under an act of congrese has appro priated money for the preparation of tho camps and for the messing of the soldier visitors. The average agj of tho men engaged la the Civil war was only eighteen years, but fifty years have passed since these soldier boys fought at Gettysburg, and so it tho computation of age was a true one tho aye rage years of the veterans who will meeUinJPennsylvania in July will be about sixty-eight years. Many of them, of course, will be much older and a good manybf them, men 'who entered at ages ranging from fourteen to sev enteen ypars, will bo younger, but all will be old men as the world views age. Many of the states of the Union, north as well as south, have, made ap propriations to send their veterans to the Gettysburg reunion and to pay all other expenses. The battle of Gettys burg Is recognized as the turning point of tho war between tho states. It has been called time nnd again ono of the decisive battys of the world. Gener ally it is recognized that Gettysburg decided tho great conflict, helped in the decision probably by' the fall of Vlcksburg on tho Mississippi, which took place virtually, at the moment that the conflict on the Pennsylvania field was 'decided In favor of the north prn arms. Tho preparations which, tho govern ment la making to caro,for the veter ans at Gettysburg aro Interesting. They havo been under the charge of James B. Aleshlre, quarterm-fter gen eral of the United States army, and 'lenry G. Shcrpc, commissary general f tho "United States army, Two years jgo last March 14,000 -regular troops wore gathered In ccmp at Texas. The health of the eoldlers throughout tho Texas encampment was almost per fpct. made so by the plane which bad been carefully laid to see that perfect ianltatlon was maintained. The Unit ed States army was taught a lesson by the Spanish -war, when lack of proper sanitary precautions and unpre parodnesa In other ways cost tbo gov ernment the lives of more men than were sacrificed to the bullets of the Spaniard. Tho estimates of the commissary and quartermaster authorities, are based upon an attendance of 40,000 vet erans. It probably will cost tho gov ernment about 360,000 to act In part as host to the survivors of the battle and other veterans who attend the Gettysburg reunion. Big Task to Fesd Men. The survivors of the war from the north and south who will be present, being old men, must becarea Tor In a way wMch would not have been nec essary fifty years ago. The messing of the veterans will require 400 army ranges, 1 great field bakery, 40,000 mess kits, 800 cooks, 800 kitchen help ers and 180 bakers. This helping per bobbbI Trill be required to be la eaaas for at least stivea days, audi suay o( them for a longer period, for tho pur pose of Installing the field bakery, tho J field ranges and in dismantling, clean ing, packing and storing material after the encampment is over. Tho old soldiers aro to be supplied with fresh meat directly from refrig erator cars drawn upon the field. They will bo given fresh vegetables and spe cial bread with the beat coffee and tea Which the market affords. For them It will not bo a case, of hardtack, booties and poor bacon. The Dattle of Gettysburg commis sion of the state of Pennsylvania baa ft largo sum of money at lta disposal lot tho entertainment of tho visiting veterans, and the thousands of persona who will accompany them. Hospital ity is to mark the days. Fifty years ago Pennsylvania aided In the work of repelling tho visitors from tho south. In early July next the same stato will have lta arms wide open in welcome to the men wearing the gray. Enter tainments of Various kinds will bo of fered tbo visiting vetorans, but It is protty well understood that their deep Interest in re.vlsltlng the scenes whero they fought. Little Round Top, Oak Ridge, Cemetery Hill, Culp's Hill, Rock. Creek, tho Stono Wall and other places will hold them largely to tho pleasures and to tho sadnesses of per sonal reminiscences. Arm In arm with the Union soldiers, tho Confederate sol diers will retramp tho battleground. They will look over the field of Pick ett's desperate charge. They will re trace tho marching steps pf Long street's corps. They will go to tho place where Meade had his headquar ters and to the place from which Leo directed his southern forces In battlo. Pennsylvania Is going to mako a great celebration of pcaco ot this .fif tieth anniversary of what probably was tho decisive battlo Of the. war, al though It waaVfought ntarly two years before the war ended. Other, states wiH help Pennsylvania In Its work, and from every section of the country, 'north, cast, e"outh and west-,- th-Yet-. orans will assemble, most of .tuem .probably to seo for the last time inf life the field upon which they were, willing to die for tho sake of their re spective, causes. , ' . Thoveterans wll) nobo dlrpctly en- bUWl'VU 114 wiu viviiouuit, fain, Wllll.ll is dotted with monuments to the vari- ous commands which took part in tho light and which Is laid out In approved park fashion, with fine drives and! beautifully kept lawns. There-will bo two camps, known as No. 1 and, No. 2. No. 1 will cover 149 ncresand No.- 2 will cover -44 acres. The layouts of these camps are based on the "use of" conical tents, each of which will, with out crowding, accommodate eight per sons. Inasmuch as accommodations are to be furnished for 40,000 visitors 5,000 tents will be required to glvO quarters to the visiting hosts. Visitors to Be Cared For. Every possible care is to be taken of the visitors. The sanitary arrange ments which have been made are said to be the beet that are possible and they are the result of careful study by medical officers of the service. All tho experience of the past has beon drawn upon to make it certain that the Lealth of the veterans will bo conserved. while they are in camp. With so many thousands of old sol diers in attendance, and taking Into, consideration tho probability that the weather will be warm, It is expected that there will be sickness, but the United States government and the state of Pennsylvania are preparing for a hospital service which shall be adequate to any contingency. There will be hospital corps detachments present ready to render first aid to tho injured, and there will be many field hospitals with surgeons' in' at tendance, where the sick can receive instant attendance. It Is eaid that this contemplated re union ' has Induced more interest among the old soldiers of, tho north and the south than any event which hashappened since tho day that the war closed. There is today at Gettys burg a great national park, in which is included a cemetory where thou sands ot soldier dead are burled. The United States government and the leg islature of Pennsylvania worked to gether to make a park of tho battle field and -to mark accurately every point In it which has historic interest. When one.goes to the field he can tell just where this brigade or that bri gade was engaged, just where this charge or that charge was made and just where the desperate defenses -of positions were maintained until the tide ot battle brought either victory or dofeat to one of tho Immediate com mands engaged. It was In 1895 that congress estab lished a national park at Gettysburg and gave tho secretary of war author ity to name a commission "to superin tend the opening of additional roads, mark the boundaries, ascertain and definitely mark the lines of battle ol troops engaged, to acquire lands which were occupied by Infantry, cavalry and artillery, and such other adjacent lands as the secretary of war may deem necessary to preserve the Impor tant topographical features of the bat tlefield." When the Union and the Confeder ate veterans reach Gettysburg on June 30 next they will find on the scene of the old conflict between five and six hundred memorials raised In eoHjtnenj- oration ot the deeds of their com mands on the great flglds ot the Penn sylvania battlefield. There are, more over, 1,000 markers placed to deslg nate historic spots. There are great towers built upon the field by the gov ernment so that bird's-eye vews can be obtained oi the entire' scene ot the battle. Fine roads have been con structed and everywhere attention has been paid to every detail ot the least Importance In setting forth the history Ot oae of the greatest battles ever .khowb to warare.
