as "the captain of our salvation," and to the great multitude which will stand
with their robes washed and made white in the blood of the Lamb, who shall
have come out of great tribulation, being made "conquerors and more than
conquerors through Him that loved us." I say, fellow-soldiers, "how goes the
battle to-day against the world, the flesh, the devil?"

He referred to the roll-call of the Confederate army as it is answered to-
day in the eternal world, by a much greater number than the number left on
earth, and to the certainty that within another twenty years those who are here
shall nearly all have met on eternity's shore. He expressed the ardent hope
that none would meet in eternity's night. "He who is enrolled under the ban-
ner of Christ can never grow old." It is a faithful service to the end, and as
Mr. Spurgeon says, "the Christian's dying day is the Spring day of his ex-
istence."

Referring to the certainty that those present would never all meet again on
earth, and hoping that all would be enrolled under Christ's banner from this
time forward, he closed saying —

"God be with you till we meet again,
Meet at Jesus feet."

Another hymn was sung, after which Dr. J. Win. Jones, former Chaplain
of the Thirteenth Virginia Regiment, and Missionary Chaplain to A. P. Hill's
corps, was introduced by Chaplain Cleveland.

DR. J. WM. JONES.

If I were to trust myself to speak of the hallowed memories— the precious
associations — that this scene recalls, I should far exceed the limits of time as-
signed me upon this occasion.

As I look into the eyes of these bronzed veterans of the brave old days of
'61-65— the "men who wore the gray" then, and are, indeed, men in gray
now — I recall scenes which it were not proper, perhaps, to revive here and
now.

But 1 thank God for the hallowed memories of the past and the precious
privilege of this hour.

My brother Evans said that he was not a preacher during the war, but I
happen to know that while not formally a preacher he was a practical preacher,
and while gallantly leading his brave men into the thickest of the tight, he was
always ready to "stand up for Jesus," and to exhort them with eloquent words
lo eonie lo ( 'hrist.

Ah! how well we all remember those days of glorious revival in the lower
valley <>f Virginia— in the Episcopal Church at Fredericksburg, in the camps
before and after Chancellorsville, along the Rapidan, after Gettysburg, when
there begun that great revival, 'which made well nigh every camp vocal with
the praise of God, and went gloriously on through the winter of 0;}-'64,
through the Campaign of '64, and along the trenches at Petersburg, until
15,000 of Lee's bravo men had found Christ in the camp, and enlisted under the
banner of the captain of our salvation."



197

Dr. Joues then related several pathetic incidents of dying soldiers who
went rejoicing from the smoke of battle to the peace, and rest, and joy of
heaven, and concluded his remarks as follows :

Comrades, I greet you here to-day, and count it an honor, and a privilege,
to address you.

In these days it is the fashion among certain men to sneer at religion as
something well enough, perhaps, for old men, women, children, or sick peo-
ple, but not needed by the strong and manly. They say that our old Bible
and our old-fashioned religion is not needed by the manhood of this progressive
century.

Well, Robert E. Lee was a man, was he not? Stonewall Jackson w T as
every inch a man.

The immortal heroes who, in ragged jacket and bare feet followed them to
an immortality of fame were men, were they not? Aye, were not these na-
ture's true noblemen, who need trace no lineage back to prince or king, but
whose deeds stamped royalty on their brows forever.

Now, these great leaders, and many of their peerless men, considered it no
derogation of their manhood to bring all their honors and their achievements
and lay them at the feet of Jesus; to w r alk in the old paths of the old Bible; to
be humble followers of the Great Captain.

If the voice of one of these could be heard from the glory land to-day it-
would ring in your ears in clarion notes, "Be ye followers of me, even as I,
also, am of Christ."

I close, with just this word more. I look in the eyes of men here before
me, who in the camp, on the march, in the bivouac, in the hospital, in the
prison, and especially amid the leaden and iron hail of battle, have often made
vows that if God would spare them, and bring them back home in safety, they
would serve Him as long as they lived.

God has kept his part of the contract. He shielded you in the hour of
battle, and raised you up from the bed of illness. You go into the homes of
the people and there are vacant chairs, voices missing in the evening music,
loved forms that come not back to their accustomed places, and hearts that
often bleed afresh for one touch of the voice that is stilled. These were com-
rades dearly loved and sadly missed in our great gathering on yesterday, and
who shall come no more to our earthly reunions. But you are spared, and are
here to-day beneath this clear sky and mingling in this service, which recalls
so vividly those of other days.

As an old Chaplain who loves the Confederate soldier as he does no other
man on earth, I come with this exhortation: "Pay now thy vows unto the
Lord in the presence of all His people."

God help you and bless you, my comrades, that by sincere repentance to-
wards God and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, you may be ready when your
summons comes to follow our great leaders and Christian comrades gone be-
fore — to "cross over the river and rest under the shade of the trees!"



198

"Shall we meet beyond the river,
Where the surges cease to roar ;
Where, in all that bright forever,

Sorrow ne'er shall oppress the soul."

This beautifully touching hymn was sung, closing the exercises.

After a benediction, pronounced by Rev. T. P. Cleveland, Chaplain of the
Veterans' Association, the old soldiers crowded around the stand to shake the
hands of General Evans, Dr. Jones, and the others who occupied it.

One bj' one the veterans then took their usual ways, and in the calmness of
the benediction of the Lord, one of the most notable gatherings that Atlanta
lias ever seen, came to a close.

Such a closing! It was a scene worthy of such a cause, the service of the
Lord. Old soldiers in a religious reunion, perhaps for the last time on earth,
lb ally hand-shaking in the joy and earnestness of the occasion. There is much
significance in the thrilling emotions of the warm and cordial clasp of hands.
Significant of friendship, of brotherhood, of love, of earnestness, of sincerity,
and of fidelity. Such is true, indeed, of the old veterans, who had endured
the trials and toils of camps, when disease and dangers were around them at
every step and every day. It is not strange then that our old soldiers should
have had a hearty shaking of hands all around, on such an occasion as the ser-
vice in our memorial camp. It was a scene grand and wonderful to behold,
interesting and glorious to be told, worthy and pleasant to be remembered.



In my conclusion of this report, I desire to call attention to, and correct, a
few errors in the preceding pages. On page 19 I referred to one of our visitors
at one of our meetings as General W. Fitzhugh Lee. I should have said it was
Major-General W. II. F. Lee, a member of Congress from Virginia, and a son
General R. E. Lee. Also on same page, instead of John Stewart, it should be
R. II. Stewart, who presented the portrait of General R. E. Lee. On page 14,
in mentioning our first memorial service, at Central Presbyterian Church, it
should lie that several addresses were made, in niemoriam of our dead, by Dr.
.1. \Y. Lee, II. 0. Morrison, Dr. G. B. Strickler, and others, instead of saying
there was a sermon by Dr. Strickler.

I may also here acknowledge receipt of papers and records from Captain
W. A. Fuller, of Atlanta, and Dr. Geo. S. Barnsley, of Bartow county, Ga.,
and return thanks to them Their papers could not be utilized in this report,
but will afford good matter tor future use in our department of history.

As pail of my services with you and for you, since I was chosen as your
Historian. I respectfully Submit lliis little book, containing sketches of service
in the war, the .Minnies and the principal events of our Association. I wish

thai ii may be both interesting and beneficial to our members.
"God be with you till we meet again."
With sincere good will for even Confederate Veteran, and hopeful wishes
for the advancement of our Association. I am
