Excerpt from 1862, Cedar Mountain, August Ninth, 1902
In the afternoon Judge Grimsley called the picnickers to order, and then followed about two hours of oratory and music; Judge Grimsley, leneral Curtis, Colonel Brown, Colonel C. M. Blackford, who was attached to Stonewall ... Jackson's staff in this battle; Captain W. P. Pendleton, adjutant-general of 'l'aliafero's brigade; Colonel J. W. Williams, 5th Virginia Infantry; Major Smiley, of the 5th Virginia; Colonel William Lloyd, adjutant-general of General Taylor's brigade, and (teneral J. T. Taylor, who was Captain in a Pennsylvania cavalry regiment. And was also engaged in this fight. Mrs. Stilson's splendid voice again thrilled the multitude. She was repeatedly recalled, and when she sang Dixie the woods echoed and re-echoed with wild applause. The Star-spangled Banner was received with equal fervor but greater reverence, the auditors standing during the rendition.
