T. J. DODD,
The present week 1ms been a ;lo
rious one for the veterans who wore
tho gray in tho Into war. Tho re
union at Memphis is one of the
largest gatherings in the history of
tho old heroes. They cam from
all sections of the country. Thous
ands and thousands of those who
met a brave foe on the battlefield
have filled to overflowing the streets
of the "JJhiir City."
Many hearty hand shakes have
been given by old comrades who
had not met each other since tho
memorable days of 1SG5. It is an
event to bo remembered. This
will, no doubt, be the last meeting
together of many of tho veterans,
for their heads are white and their
frames are bent with the frosts of
many winters. When they part
from each other on this occasion it
will probably be with the expecta
tion of meeting again only in the
The war is a thiug of the past
but its memories and its friend
ships still remain, nor would we
wish to blot them from the memo
ries of those who so valliantly de
fended a cause so dear to the people
of the South.
We of the younger generation
while we feel something of tho glow
of those stirring events of former
years, can realize but little of the
emotions which fill the hearts o
comrades whose friendships were
cemented around the camp fires
and on the field of battle. As
strong as love of man for woman is
the affection of comrade for com
rade. The memories of those stir
ring deeds of the past, the shock o
conflict, the exposure and hardships
endured, tho dreadful scenes on the
battlefield, hospital and prison are
really present only to those who
were the actors. To them it was a
horrible reality; it is a portion of
their life to-day.
We, the untried, whose ears have
never heard the sound of hostile
shot, who have never looked with
averted eyes upon the horrors of
grim war, nor felt the leaping of the
blood in the hour of victory, should
feel for these battle-scared heroes
tho reverence due the brave and
Long may these men live as ex
amples of men in the most trying
years of life, and may their deeds
be bright before the eyes of the
