men were bronzed, the flags were stained, but it was a march of heroes. For
over six hours, Sherman stood by ,the President as the veterans with swing-
ing step passed before the reviewing stand amid the cheers of the surging multi-
tudes. Pennsylvania avenue will never again witness so patriotic a parade.

Hail to the chief who in triumph advances !

After the arrival in Washington, by enlistments, assignments and trans-
fers, the regiment numbered 451, one hundred more than were in the ranks
at Stone River. After some delay, the regiment broke camp, and by rail and
boat reached Louisville on June 18. Eight months' pay and $50 bounty were
paid the men, and on July 12, 1865, the Thirty-fourth Illinois Volunteer
Infantry was mustered out after three years, ten months and five days of
actiy.e service. From Louisville to Camp Douglas, Chicago, where the pay

were signed, and on Monday, July 17, the boys hastened to their firesides.

LETTER OF GEN. E. N. KIRK.

The following letter is in the Whiteside Historical Society, and explains
itself. It was written as may be seen, before Kirk entered the service, and
was still at home:

Col. Wilson,

Dear Friend: I am glad to know that you are well, and engaged in
earnest in defense of the capital. I suppose now that W T ashington is filled
with troops, you are relieved of some of your labors. It is time now for men
to prove what stuff they are made of, and for the government to prove, too,
that it has vitality enough to maintain itself, and it will do it.

I have no fear of this administration. I believe that Lincoln and his
cabinet are the men for the occasion, and equal to it. You, of course, being
on the ground, must know from actual observation what is going on. Some
of our restless men here are dissatisfied because they think the government
moves too slowly. The people demand of the government prompt and vig-
orous action. They will tolerate no compromise, no patching up of this
matter, nothing short of unconditional submission on part of the rebel states,
and the extirpation of treason and traitors. I think Lincoln has done mira-
cles, almost, in the short time he has been there.



252 HISTORY OF WHITESIDE COUNTY

We have two tip-top companies here, and one at Morrison. I am hop-
ing every day to hear of your receiving some good office, as I have no doubt
you will. Write when you can. Your letters coming right from head-
quarters at such a time, are of peculiar interest. With many kind wishes
for your success, I am Yours truly,

Sterling, May 4, 1861. - E. N. KIRK.
