MESSAGES OF LOVE AND ENCOTTKAGEMENT.

Letters, messages of love and encouragement, were sent by
noble women from many counties of the State to encourage the
brave sons and brothers in the South. Below we give a copy of a
printed letter sent from Knox county to the "boys in blue," as
showing the feelings of the women of the North. It was headed,
" From the Women of Knox County to Their Brothers in the
Field." It was a noble, soul-inspiring message, and kindled anew
the intensest love for home, country, and a determination to crown
the stars and stripes with victory :

"You have gone out from our homes, but not from our hearts.
Never for one moment are you forgotten. Through weary march
and deadly conflict our prayers have ever followed you; your
sufferings are our sufferings, your victories our great joy.



HISTORY OF ILLINOIS. 133

" If there be one of you who knows not the dear home ties, for
whom no mother prays, no sister watches, to him especially we
speak. Let him feel that though he may not have one mother he
has many; he is the adopted child and brother of all our hearts.
Kot one of you is beyond the reach of our sympathies; no picket-
station so lonely that it is not enveloped in the halo of our
prayers.

" During all the long, dark months since our country called you
from us, your courage, your patient endurance, your fidelity, have
awakened our keenest interest, and we have longed to give you an
expression of that interest.

"By the alacrity with which you sprang to arms, by the valor
with which those arms have been wielded, you have placed our
State in the front ranks; you have made her worthy to be the home
of our noble President. For thus sustaining the honor of our
State, dear to us as life, we thank you.

" Of your courage we need not speak. Fort Donelson, Pea
Ridge, Shiloh, Stone River, Vicksburg, speak with blood- bathed
lips of your heroism. The Army of the Southwest fights beneath
no defeat-shadowed banner; to it, under God, the nation looks for
deliverance.

"But we, as women, have other cause for thanks. "We will not
speak of the debt we owe the defenders of our Government; that
blood-sealed bond no words can cancel. But we are your debtors
in a way not often recognized. You have aroused us from the
aimlessness into which too many of our lives had drifted, and have
infused into those lives a noble pathos. We could not dream our
time away while our brothers were dying for us. Even your suffer-
ings have worked together for our good, by inciting us to labor for
their alleviation, thus giving us a work worthy of our womanhood.
Everything that we have been permitted to do for your comfort
has filled our lives so much the fuller of all that makes life valua-
ble. You have thus been the means of developing in us a nobler
tj'pe of womanhood than without the example of your heroism we
could ever have attained. For this our whole lives, made purer
and nobler by the discipline, will thank you.

"This war will leave none of us as it found us. "We cannot
buflfet the raging wave and escape all trace of the salt sea's foam.
Toward better or toward worse we are hurried with fearful



134 HISTORY OF ILLINOIS.

haste. If we at home feel this, what must it be to you! Our
hearts throb with agony when we think of you wounded, suffering,
d3nng; but the thought of no physical pain touches us half so
deeply as the thought of the temptations which surround you.
We could better give you up to die on the battle-field, true to your
God and to your country, than to have you return to us with
blasted, blackened souls. When temptations assail fiercely, you
must let the tliought that your mothers are praying for strength
enable you to overcome them. But figliting for a worthy cause
worthily ennobles one; herein is our confidence that you will
return better men than you went away.

"By all that is noble in your manhood; by all that is true in
our womanhood; by all that is grand in patriotism; by all that is
sacred in religion, we adjure you to be faithful to yourselves, to us,
to your country, and to your God. ISTever were men permitted to
fight in a cause more worthy of their blood. Were you fighting
for mere conquest, or glory, we could not give you up; but to sus-
tain a principle, the greatest to which human lips have ever given
utterance, even your dear lives are not too costly a sacrifice. Let
that principle, the corner-stone of our independence, be crushed,
and we are all slaves. Like the Suliote mothers, we might well
clasp our children in our arms and leap down to death.

"To the stern arbitrament of the sword is now committed the
honor, the very life of this nation. You fight not for yourselves
alone; the eyes of the whole world are on you; and if you fail our
Nation's death-wail will echo through all coming ages, moaning a
requiem over the lost hopes of oppressed humanity. But you will
not fail, so sure as there is a God in Heaven. He never meant
this richest argosy of the nations, freighted with the fears of all
the world's tyrants, with the hopes of all its oppressed ones, to
flounder in darkness and death. Disasters may come, as they have
come, but they will only be, as they have been, ministers of good.
Each one has led the nation upw^ard to a higher plane, from whence
it has seen with a clearer eye. Success could not attend us at the
West so long as we scorned the help of the black hand, which
alone had power to open the gate of redemption; the God of
battles would not vouchsafe a victory at the East till the very foot-
prints of a McClellan were washed out in blood.

"But now all things seem ready; we have accepted the aid of



HISTORY OF ILLINOIS, 135

tliatliand; those footsteps are obliterated. In liis own good time
we feel that God will give us the victory. Till that hour comes we
bid you fight on. Though we have not attained that heroism, or
decision, which enables us to give you up without a struggle, which
can prevent our giving tears for 3'our hlood^ though many of us
must own our hearts desolate till you return, still we bid you stay
and fight for our country, till from this fierce baptism of blood she
shall be raised complete,' the dust shaken from her garments puri-
fied, a new Memnon singing in the great Godlight."



Sherman's march to the sea.



On the 15th of November, 1864, after the destruction of Atlanta,
and the railroads behind him, Sherman, with his army, began his
march to the sea-coast. The almost breathless anxiety with which
his progress was watched by the loyal hearts of the nation, and the
trembling apprehension with which it was regarded by all who
hoped for rebel success, indicated this as one of the most remark-
able events of the war; and so it proved. Of Sherman's army, 45
regiments of infantry, three companies of artillery, and one of
cavalry were from this State. Lincoln answered all rumors of
Sherman's defeat with, " It is impossible; there is a mighty sight
of fight in 100,000 "Western men." Illinois soldiers brought home
300 battle fiags. The first United States flag that floated over
Kichmond was an Illinois flag. She sent messengers and nurses to
every field and hospital to care for her sick and wounded sons.

Illinois gave the country the great general of the war, U. S.
Grant.

character of ABRAHAM LINCOLN.

One other name from Illinois comes up in all minds, embalmed
in all hearts, that must have the supreme place in this sketch of
our glory and of our nation's [honor: that name is Abraham
Lincoln. The analysis of Mr. Lincoln's character is difiicult on
account of its symmetry. In this age we look with admiration at
his uncompromising honesty; and well we may, for this saved us.
Thousands throughout the length and breadth of our country, who
knew him only as "Honest Old Abe," voted for him on that
account; and wisely did they choose, for no other man could have
carried us through the fearful night of war. When his plans were
too vast for our comprehension, and his faith in the cause too sub-

lime for our participation ; when it was all night about us, and all
dread before us, and all sad and desolate behind us; when not one
ray shone upon our cause; when traitors were haughty and exult-
ant at the South, and fierce and blasphemous at the North; when
the loyal men seemed almost in the minority; when the stoutest
heart quailed, the bravest cheek paled ; when generals were defeat-
ing each other for place, and contractois were leeching out the very
heart's blood of the republic; when everything else had failed us,
we looked at this calm, patient man standing like a rock in the
storm, and said, " Mr. Lincoln is honest, and we can trust him still."
Holding to this single point with the energy of faith and despair,
we held together, and under God he brought us through to victory.
His practical wisdom made him the wonder of all lands. With
such certainty did Mr. Lincoln follow causes to their ultimate
effects, that his foresight of contingencies seemed almost prophetic.
He is radiant with all the great virtues, and his memory will shed
a glory upon this age that will fill the eyes of men as they look
into history. Other men have excelled him in some points; but,
taken at all points, he stands head and shoulders above every other
man of 6,000 years. An administrator, he saved the nation in the
perils of unparalleled civil war; a statesman, he justified his
measures by their success; a philanthropist, he gave liberty to one
race and salvation to another; a moralist, he bowed from the sum-
mit of human power to the foot of the cross; a mediator, he exer-
cised mercy under the most absolute obedience to law; a leader,
he was no partisan ; a commander, he was untainted with blood ; a
ruler in desperate times, he was unsullied with crime; a man, he
has left no word of passion, no thought of malice, no trick of craft,
no act of jealousy, no purpose of selfish ambition. Thus perfected,
without a model and without a peer, he was dropped into these
troubled years to adorn and embellish all that is good and all that
is great in our humanity, and to present to all coming time the
representative of the divine idea of free government. It is not
too much to say that away down in the future, when the republic
has fallen from its niche in the wall of time; when the great war
itself shall have faded out in the distance like a mist on the
horizon; when the Anglo-Saxon shall be spoken only by the tongue
of the stranger, then the generations looking this way shall see
the great President as the supreme figure in this vortex of history.

THE "WAK ENDED — THE UNION RESTORED.

The rebellion was ended witli tlie surrender of Lee and his army,
and Johnson and his command in April, 1805. Our armies at the
time were up to their maximum strength, never so formidable,
never so invincible; and, until recruiting ceased by order of Sec-
retary Stanton, were daily strengthening. The necessity, however,

for SO vast and formidable numbers ceased with the disbanding of
the rebel forces, which had for more than four years disputed the
supremacy of the Government over its domain. And now the
joyful and welcome news was to be borne to the victorious legions
that their work was ended in triumph, and they were to be per-
mitted "to see homes and friends once more."
