MEMORIAL RECORD.



Drops of water fill the ocean ; particles of sand make up
the mountain.

So the great contest — largest, fiercest, bloodiest, of the cen-
tury — by which the Union of the United States was saved from
division, and libertv and free institutions were newlv assured
to this land and the world, was carried on and made successful
by the iiidividual patriotism of American citizens of the North.
One by one the lovers of fheir country joined the Union army
till their number was two million, and their strength, employed
as it was in the interest of justice, righteousness and liberty,
irresistible.

Our own town, containing a population of about one thou-
sand, contributed its proprortion of voluntary ofi"erings on the
national altar. Though far removed from the scenes of con-
flict, and employed in the most quiet of vocations — the indus-
trious cultivation of a fertile soil — yet she felt the vigorous
pulsations of the large, patriotic heart of the country. The
bugle call of war, sounded, as she imagined, by the Goddess
of Liberty, stirred the blood of her people, especially her young
men, and they gathered around the national standards and re-
paained with them till they were carried in triumph over all the

MEMORIAL RECORD.



land. Our contribution of men and means, necessarily small,
was by no means insignificant, and the record thereof we will
preserve, and herewith transmit to our children.

The record of each soldier is necessarily brief: a few dates,
and all is told. But let it be remembered that these dates
cover a long experience of privation, suffering and danger.
That days and weeks and months were consumed in exposure to
heat or cold, or storm ; in hunger, or thirst, or hard fare ; in
dull and heavy life in camp, in laborious and painful marches,
in lonesome, weary watchings at guard stations and picket
posts ; in perils of ball and shell, in the deadly field of strife
and carnage ; in sufibrings from wounds and sickness that we
sadly remember too often proved fatal.

These cannot be revealed, but they must not be forgotten, if
we would understand at all the history of our soldier friends
during their stay in the army.

"Do vre count the sick man's weary bed,

His days and nights of pain —
The ghastly spectres that round liim flit,

While the fever burns hi.^brain ?

Have we watelied his feeble, wasted form,

When the frenzied spell had passed —
When his life as in a balance hung,

And each hour might be his last ?
Who knows of the weary, Aveary march

Through the dust and burning lieat,
When a step is an age of agony,

To blistered and bleeding feet ?

Who thinks of the wintry bivouac,

'Twixt the frozen earth and sky—
The sentry's walk, 'mid rain and blast,

AVhile the long, long hours go by —
Of the night-long Avatch on the picket line,

Where a fire must never burn,
Where you hear the tread of the deadly foe,

And death is at every turn V "
