Excerpt from Memorial Day Address
The Jackson Post, - named after that typical soldier of our city, William A. Jackson, - and the Union Veteran's Union Commander Fuller, - kindred associations join you in your homage to-day; and with you will visit their sacred grounds.
<... br/>Soldiers your names, your organizations, your equip ment, your titles, and your record, prove, that, when summoned, you were prompt to meet the emergencies of war; to stand, when need was, before the death-dealing tubes of those who sought to divide the Union to put your selves on the hazard to run all risks for the integrity and honor of the nation; to disregard the whistling missiles of death whenever the national symbol - our ¿ag of stars North or South, East or West, - a ¿ag unacquainted with defeat - seemed to be in peril.
But, now, you are in a community of peace. All is quiet, as if you were in Paradise.
