ADDRESS OF REV E. J. EGAN.
AT THE MEMORIAL DAY EXERCISES,
LAST WEEK WEDNESDAY. .
The Peck &
185 to 307 Middle St.
Lines Co.,
Bridgeport,
Ct.
Comrades of Custer Post, Ladies and
Gentlemen: I wish first of all, to ex
press tbe pleasure 1 feel on tbis occa
sion tbe pleasure I experience in tbus
meeting my fellow townspeople. Tbe
tie tbat unites me to tbis old town is
one of tbe strongest of tbe buman
beast, tbe tie of birtb. If it be possi
ble tbat tie will be stronger from tbis
day fortb. We bave scriptural au
thority for it, tbat a prophet is with
out bonor in bis own country, but I
feel tbat I was invited to. meet and
address you to-day for no other rea
son, save tbat I was born and reared
on one of your rock-ribbed hills. The
motive is honorable to you ana com
plimentary to me, and I will never
forget it.
But I feel a peculiar delight in
meeting tbe comrades of Custer Post
of the Grand Army of the Republic.
I am always glad to meet and do hon
or to those who in the dark days of the
Rebellion, sacrificed tbemselves that
tbis glorious and free republic might
not perish . from the earth. But I
bave a special feeling of kindliness for
tbe comrades of Custer Post, for as a
boy, I bad a humble part in the cere
monies at the institution of tbe Post.
The poet says, "The thoughts of youth
are long, long thoughts.' Tbe
thoughts of that day are witb me yet,
as vivid and lively as tbe thougbts of
yesterday, though it must be thirty
ago.
In those days I was a member of tbe
old St Rose's drum corps. On tbe day
of installation, the veterans beaded by
a brass band and tbe drum corps,
marched through Newtown street and
thence to Sandy Hook, where the cere
monies were completed. I also re
member how my boyish pride was tic
kled when a veteran afterwards told
me tbat for marching he preferred the
drum corps to the brass band. It was
more martial, more Inspiring, more
warlike. I hardly think he was in
dulging in "blarney," for he was not
an Irishman. Anyway we played dur
ing the march, "Garry own," which
our great President Roosevelt has de
clared to be the greatest fighting tune
ever composed. I shall never forget
the pride and importance I felt on
that day. I was associated witb vet
erans; I was marching with men who
bad actually been in war, who bad
gone through fields and up heights in
the face of shot and shell, the leaden
rain and iron hail of tbe poet. To me,
it was romantic. No soldier of Grant,
Sherman and Sheridan's army, march
ing triumphantly through Washing
ton ai the close of the war, was bigger
than I. I thought I deserved well of
my country. I had done something to
save the republic. You were heroes
to me, and I was associated with he
roes. Comrades of Custer Post: You were
heroes to me then, and you are heroes
to me now I have grown to middle
age; I am better able now, mentally,
to arrasn the awful significance of the
Civil war, its causes, its terrible cost
in blcod and treasure, its magnificent
results. I understand now what I did
not understand as a boy that if this
union was disrupted in '61, it weuld
have been the most tremendous catas
trophe in the history of tbe bumanrdown
race. You, members of Custer Post,
and your comrades in arms, animated
by a lofty spirit of self-sacrifice ana a
heroic love of country, averted that
calamity, saved the Union, preserved
liberty, and passed 'along to suc
ceeding generations tbe priceless
beritage purchased by tbe blood of
Revolutionary sires. So I am proud
to greet you to-day. It is
A PRIVILEGE TO VOICE THE HONOR
AND VENERATION
in which a grateful people hold you
and your comrades.
The soldiers of the great Civil war
may indulge in pardonable pride. Tbe
American people are justly proud of
them. Tbey were the greatest sol
diers of all history. We are compel!
ed to go back to tbe ancient, legen
dary history of the Roman republic, to
and anything approacmng inem in
simplicity and heroism. You bave all
heard of that old Roman soldier and
general, who, when he was called up
on to save his country, was found till
ing his field. Patriotic, he answered
his country's call, and when he had ac
complished a hero's work, and had
crushed his country's enemies, he re
turned to tbe calm and quiet of farm
ing life. The American soldiers in
like manner came from the farm and
workshop. Tbey were citizen sol
diers. They were neither hirelings
nor mercenaries. They were not pro
fessional fighters seeking reward in
loot and booty. They were animated
solely by a love of country, and to help
tbeir country in the hour of distress,
they left their ordinary avocations
ard went to the front. And these
peaceful citizens, who as Americans
hated war and bloodshed were molded
into the bravest and most efficient
army of ancient or modern times; and
when they had finished their work a
work in which were bound up the
weal and happiness of unborn millions,
tbey came back borne, took up the
thread of life where it had been sever
ed, and followed the avocations of
plain, everyday citizens, all uncon
scious, 'apparently, of having done
deeds, and accomplished results, which
history will never cease to glorify. My
Friends: When we see tbese old sol
diers living out tbeir simple lives, un
pretentious, unboastf ul, we are apt to
forget, we fail to realize tbat tbey
were actors in the greatest tragedy of
human history, and that they acted
their parts well. Let me make some
comparisons. The comparisons are
between tbe losses in some of the
great battles of tbe Civil war, and
those of some of tbe most famous bat
tles of modern Europe. Tbe official
reports give tbe following as tbe loss
es in killed and wounded in seven out
of a tbousand hotly contested battles
during the four years war: Seven
Days' fight, 9291; Antietam, 11426;
Murfreesboro, 8778; Gettysburg, 16,
426; Chickamauga, 10,906; Wilderness
and Spottsylvania, 24,481.
. In the battle of Marengo, tbe Frencb
lost in killed and wounded. 4700; the
Austrians, 6475; in tbe battle of Ho
henlinden, tbe French loss in killed
and wounded was 2200, the Austrian
loss, 5000; at Au8terlitz, the Frencb
loss was 9000; at Waterloo, Welling
ton lost 9061 in killed and wounded,
Blucber, 5613, making the total loss of
tbe allies, 14674. I quote tbese figures
froov the late Gen Wheeler,' who says
apropos of them: "I mention these
facts, because such sanguinary con
flicts as those of our Civil war could
only have occurred when the soldiers
of both contending armies were men
of superb determination and courage.
Such unquestioned prowess should be
gratifying to all Americans, showing
to the world as tbey did, that the in
trepid fortitude and courage of Amer
cans have excelled that of any other
people upon tbe earth."
The people of Newtown have reason
to be proud of tbe part tbey took in
the great wan
NEWTOWN BOYS FORMED A GOOD PART
of many of the Connecticut regiments.
In my youth I heard much of their
doings from the mouths of the old sol
diers. But I heard very little of tbeir
bravery and dogged fighting. Heroes
are always modest. They prefer to
let others recount tbeir acts, and tbe
comrades from old Newtown, it seems
to me, have chosen to leave to history
the telling of their deeds. I am glad
to bear testimony tbat tbey were the
equals of the bravest of the brave
men of the Civil war. I hope it will
not appear invidious to mention one
regiment, where all were equal. Ab
uno disce omnes from one example,
learn the character of all. Several
years ago, down in Pennsylvania, view
ing tbe panorama field of Gettysburg,
I asked the guide to show me tbe posi
tion of tbe 17th Connecticut. Point
ing to a distance, he said: "Tbey were
off tbere, during the first day's fight,
and did some of tbe hardest fighting
of the battle." Let us remember
tbere never was fighting comparable
to that of Gettysburg. Never in all
history was there a charge, for dash
and desperate courage, like that of
Pickett's brigade at Gettysburg; and
we know it was stubbornly met, and
driven back, sbattered and destroyed.
And tbe 17th Connecticut did some of
the hardest fighting of the battle.
Comrades of Custer Post: Over 40
years bave rolled by since you laid
your arms. iou nave Deen
spared to see the fruitful results of
your sacrifices. You see your country
to-day, a world power, tbe admiration
and envy of the civilized world. What
emotions of pride must thrill your
hearts to-day. Ana wnen the last re
veille will be sounded and you will go
to join your brethren,! whose graves we
decorate to-aay, tne tnougnt tnat you
have not lived in vain, the remem
brance of duty nobly performed will
sustain you, ana you win lay your
selves down, conscious that as long as
freedom endures, your deeds shall not
be forgotten.
Friends: I do not wish anything I
say here to be interpreted as a glorifi
cation of war. No words can fitly de
scribe tbe cruelty and barbarity of
war. We all know what Sherman
thought of it. A lady once asked
Wellington how it felt to gain a vic
tory. "Madam," he replied, "a victo
ry is the worst possible tragedy on tbis
earth, except defeat." May tbe shad
ows of war never darken our happy
land! But tbere are worse things
than war. Injustice is worse than
war; tyranny Is worse than war; na
tional cowardice and dishonor are
worse than war; but should the emer
gency ever arise, should a crisis ever
come, may the Americans of that day
meet it, as did tbe men whose prowess
ana courage we commemorate to-aay.
This solemn and interesting observ
ance of Memorial day, by the good peo
ple of Newtown, is an auspicious
omen, il is a proof that
THE FIRES OF PATRIOTISM ARB NOT
extinguished;
tbat you remember what the rights
and liberties of American citizens have
cost. Oh! that for all time, in every
namieD ana town and city, like serv
ices might be held. Orville Dewey, a
ceieDraiea jn ew England preacher ana
writer, says: "A free people must be a
thoughtful people, for it has to do the
greatest thing in the world to govern
itself." It is well to spend a day like
this in serious thought, thought on
the origin and history of our country,
on its vicissitudes and triumphs, its
dangers, our duties as citizens. Only
in tbis way, sball we be incited to live
up to the high standard of American
citizenship. If we forget what our
rights and privileges cost, there is
danger that we undervalue them.
Sometime ago one of our leading
journals was asked if the (lag on Dec
oration day should be at half mast, or
should float from tbe masthead. Its
answer was that it should lloat from
the masthead. The flag at half mast
is a symbol of sadness, of sorrow. But
tbis is not a day of gloom. It is true
we commemorate the dead, but the
dead whose death was glorious. Tbe
Christian church has always celebrat
ed with joy the days on which
its martyrs died, because by
their death they glorified God and
the church, and . their death
was tbe beginning of happiness and
life the life eternal. Next to God is
country and next to religion is patrio
tism, if, nasrjeensaia: "jno praise
goes beyond tbe deserts of patriotism.
It is sublime in its heroic- oblation on
a field of battle." "Oh! glorious is be
who for bis country falls," exclaims
the Trojan warrier, Hector. So in a
measure Memorial day is a day of glad
ness. We rejoice that the heroic dead
had tbe virtue and power to give
themselves for their country. They
have won imperishable glory and we
need not sorrow for them. We re
joice that we as Americans share tbeir
renown.
But we should regret to see the day
degenerate into a mere holiday, a day
of mere pastimes and sports. Let our
joy on the Fourth of July be uncon
fined, for it is tbe birtbday of freedom;
let us rejoice on Washington and Lin
coln's birthdays, that such men were
born into the world. But on.Memorl
al day let us be thoughtful and take to
heart tbe lessons it brings us. Let us
learn to bate injustice, selfishness and
indifference to the prosperity and good
name of our country. In other words
let us learn to be just, unselfish and
patriotic. Tbe
MEN WHOM WE HONOR TO DAY HATED
INJUSTICE.
A great wrong was being perpetrated
on a whole race. Human beings were
held in a bondage worse than death.
They were treated as chattels,
bought and sold like beasts of bur
den. Ground under tbe heels of
their tyrannical masters, ringing be
neath the lash great was the injustice
under which tbey suffered.
But tbese soldiers of '61, living and
dead, righted that wrong and justice
prevailed. We cannot be blind to tbe
fact that much injustice exists to-day.
While human nature is what it is,
tbere will always be cunning, schem
ing, unscrupulous men, who will try
to pervert or evade tbe laws of tbeir
country for their own aggrandizement,
and to tbe detriment of their fellow
citizens. The remedy for tbis is a
healthy moral public sentiment. If
the majority are honest, eminently
just, tbese evils cannot last. Tbe
American people are often easy-going,
long-suffering. Most of us are shocked
at the revelations, so frequently made,
of dishonesty and infidelity in public
and private trusts. It often happens
tbat men too readily condone these
sins. I have seen men smile at the
mention of "graft," and heard them
say: "Well, we might do the same,
were we in tbeir place." It ought not
be so. Honest ancTjust ourselves, we
ought not tolerate it in others. Our
voices should ever be raisea ana our
influence used that honesty may pre
vail. Honest and just ourselves, we
should never be afraid to smite witb
tbe strong right arm of righteousness
and probity every wrong no matter
who may be its victim be he rich or
poor, white or black, Jew or Gentile.
How unselfish were those soldiers!
They gave all that men bold dear.
Tbey abandoned their work, their
business. Tbey sundered tbe dearest
ties of blood. Husbands left tbeir
wives, lovers their sweethearts, sons
tbeir parents; and tbey did this for
love of country. What generosity!
What unselfishness! Is it too much to
expect that we imitate tbem in some
degree? We are not called upon to
make the sacrifices tbey did. But is it
asking too much that we be public
spirited? That we take an interest in
tbe election of bonest and true men to
office? Tbat we do what we can for
the enforcement of laws tbat make for
the good of all tbe people? We must
not live for ourselves individually,
seeking our private interests only, but
as members of an organized society we
should seek the public good. Ami

SOLDIERS OF THE CIVIL WAR WERE
PATRIOTIC.
They loved the country and its govern
ment. Tbat government was threat
ened, its authority was rejected. To
uphold that government, to maintain
its authority, they were ready to do
and to die. How noble the example!
How 'worthy of imitation: Let us
cleave to our country and its institu
tions with all the ardor ot loving
hearts. It is the noblest government
ever founded by man. Governments
exist to secure to tbe citizens all their
rights; to keep order. The best gov
ernment is tbe one that attains these
ends and at the same time gives to the
individual all tbe liberty consistent
witb those objects. No government
meets tbese requirements so securely,
so fully as our own. Wicked and sel
fish men may pervert It to gain special
privileges. But the people bave the
remedy in their own bands. Tbey
'cannot fool all the people all the
time." Vigilance is the price of lib
erty. Be chary of new-fangled doc
trines. It cannot be doubted that our
country is approaching a crisis. Dis
content is rife. Socialism, preached

advantage of the people's discontent to
awaken suspicions in their minds that
the government is inadequate and un
fit to cope with the problems confront
