Keiv men liavo served llieir country better
than Winfiold S. llaucock and few Jeervo
more from their countrymen. A big man,
with u bis head, a big heart and a bit;
brain, Hancock is the personification of
honor, honesty and capacity. Gallant and
unassuming, a soldier in three wars, tlio he
ro of a hundred battles, ho is a man on
whom all Democrats cm consistently
unite (or Frcsiilent, nnd who as a candi
date, will perhaps command a larger de
gree of lespcct and support from llepubli
cans than any other man in tho Democratic
p.uty. Clear-headed and self reliant, his
career ni a judicial statesmen and Milit.uy
fiovercor while iu command of Louisiana
and Texas gives evidence that, if a strong
man is needed for President, there is no man
n the nalion msro for that position

ofJIcClellan President Lincoln, on the 23rd
of September, 18(11, commissioned Hancock
a Ilrigadler General of Volunteers, Ho was
assigned to n brigade In the division of Gen
oral llaldy Smith and reported to duty at
Chain Ilrldge, Virginia, in tho Army of tho
1113 l'IRST 1IATTIX.
His first battlo in tho rebellion was at
Warwick Court House, near Yorktown, and
ho led his brigade In peison, driving the ene
my before him. At Williamsburg Hancock
boro n conspicuous part. Tho rebels having
repulsed Hooker nnd exposed Hancock's
left (lank ho determined to rctiro and order

his brigade liue stood. The rebel command
er, seeing tho movement, at once advanced
his troops, and they camo down on Han
cock's right in two superb lines of battle.
cheerrlng tremendously and calllrg out,
"Hull Runt Hull Runl That (lag is ours."
Hancock sat on his horse behind the centre
of his line, wailing with imperturbable cool
ness the favorable moment. Calling on the
men to stand fast and keep their pieces load-
ol, Hancock waited until tho rebels were
vvilln 100 yard?, then dashing forward on
his horso. witli head bared, nnd swinging
his li.it, ho shouted, "Forward! forward!1'
The men saw tho towering form of their
General leading them, and springing up,
with a shout that mado the hills ring, they
precipitated themselves upon tho enemy.
Tho groat, irregular mass of rebels faltered,
hailed fir n moment, wavered and then fell
back slowly. Kvery inch of ground was
stubbornly contested; still, Hancock forced
them off tho field, n.ir did they ngniti ad
vance until the Union reinforcements came
up and rendered tho victory secure. It was
almost night when Hancock repulsed the
enemy, and no pursuit could be ordered in
the darkness. Tho ground was covered with
rebel dead aud wounded and many werecut
offand captured. The action of Hancock
had rendered Williamsburg untenable, and
that night the enemy abandoned it. Han
cock's name was heralded from Maine to
California, and in a few hours from nn un
known iilbordtnato, ho had leaped into fame
and assumed a national reputation. McClel
lan telegraphed the President "Hancock
was superb to day," an expression which all
who saw him towering above his men lead
ing them to battle knew to be only just,
ms snr.vi'cra in thi: it.ninsui.a.
On the 27th of June. 18G2, Hancock, who
was then at Gelding's Farm, in tho Penin
sula, received a severe attack fiom tho ene
my. Ho repulsed it and continued tho fight
ing far into tho night, the contending forces
firing at each other at close quarters in tlio
dark. This battlo of Hancock's was ono of
the grandest spectacles of the war, and will
never be forgotten by tho Army of tho Po
tomac. On the 2?th of Juno, 18fi2, Han
cock was heavily engaged at Garnett's Hill,
as he was at Savage Station on tho 29th and
at Wnito Oak Swamp on the 30th. Hh
troops fought four battles in as many days,
and iu every one of them were led by Han
cock in person. He never kuew fear him
self and could not tolerate it in others. An
officer, who Lad his men in a tight place;
rode up to the General and said: General,
my men are all being killed; may I not with
draw them a little out of the fire?''
"No," replied Hancock, "I hope wo shall
be able to advance soon."
'Then we shiiH all be killed," despond
iugly replied the officer.
"Very well," said Uancock; "return to
your troops, and if you fall you will have
tlio satisfaction of knowing you have died
for your country,"
For his services in tho Peninsula cam
paign General McClcllan recommended
Hancock for promotion to tho rank of ma
jor general of voluteers and tho brevets of
major, lieutenant colonel aud colonel iu the
ALWAYS AT IT.
In September, ISO-, Hancock commanded
his brigade in the battle of South Moun
tain nnd afterwards at Antietam. In this
latlcr engagement, when Gen. Richardson
fell, Hancock was sent to tako command of
that gallant officer's division. In Novem
ber, 1SC2, Hancock received his commission
as major general, and on tho 13th of De
cember was engaged in the desperate and
bloody assault on Marye's Heights. His
behavior on this occasion was in keeping
with the high reputation ho had received.
Hq was, with his division, in the thickest of
the coiillict, leading his men as far as it was
possible, under tho circumstances, for men
to go, nnd only (ailing back when altem t
at further advance was fool-hardy and use
less. In this fight, as, in fact, iu almost ev
ery ono in which he was engaged, he seem
ed to wear a charm on his life. He received
in tho 'slaughter pen," as the rank and file
were wont to call the position they occupied
in this fight, a slight flesh wound, coming
out otherwiso unharmed, though with unp
lorm perforated with the enemy's bullel.
In this battle Hancock lost one-half of his
command, killed aud wounded, aud all his
aides were wounded.
At Chancellorsville, in May, 1803, ho com
manded his division and covered tho roads
leading towards Fredericksburg, where
amid surrouudlng disaster, although con
stantly attacked, his troops maintained their
position to the last, nnd formed the rear
guard of the army in moving oirthe, field.
The general had his horse shot under him
in ihe battle. Karly in Juno he relieved
Gtueral Couch in command of the Second
Corps, aud later iu the same mouth was as
signed by Mr. Lincoln U bo its permanent
In ono of his battles General Hancock
placed one of his brigades in a certain po
sition and eaiu to its commander: "Genet
al, whatever happens, I want you to hold
this grouud." The brigade commander was
never very strong on the battlo field and on
that occasion seemed to be prtlcularly weak
aud anxious, and as tho General turned to
ride away to another part of the field lie
followed him n short distance and called oul;
General, where are my reserve?" General
Hancock turned and, riding up to where the
officer was standing, said, severely. "Gen
eral, It is nono of your business where your
reinforcements are; that Is my bminess. I
havo placed you here to hold tills ground:
that is all you ato'requiredtodo, and I want
it done, sir," The ofiicer returned to
hh liufl with a sad step and a sorrowful ex-
presslon of countenance.
It was at Gettysburg Hancock again loom
ed up before tho country as a hero. He was
commanding the rear guard of the army in
its advanco on Gettysburg, and had reached
'PArryiowD, the ldaee 'where hU grandfather,
one hundred years before, had started to ts
cort ono thousand Hessian prisoners of
llurgoyne's army to Valley Fort.o, when
General Meade tent him nn order to hasten
lo tho front and assumo command of all the
troops there. Tho report had reached Meado
of the fall of General Reynolds and the
check nnd repulse of the advance, and his
mind at onco turned to General Hancock as
the man above nil others best qualified to
replace Reynolds nnd restore order to tho
head of tho army. Hancock was not the
ranking general, but in the critical stato of
alfalrs, Jleade knowing him to bo tho best
man, did not hesitate tonsslgu him.
On Ids way from Tarrytown to tho battlo
field General Hancock met the ambulance
enntaiulug tho dead body of a.'n. Reynolds.
When ho arrived on the field ho found the
army in confusion and retreat had already
begun. Planting some infantry and batter
ies on Semlnaiy Hill ho threw his whole
energy Into the battle and checked tho ene
my. Schwerln nnd Ssxo were said to be
worth each a reinforcement of 10,000 men
to an nrmj; Torslesln was rated as equal lo
10,000 nnd tho Duke of Wellington said the
arrival of Napoleon on a battle field was n
better reinforcement to the French army
than tho accessiau of 30,000 fresh troops.
What then shall wo say of the value of
Gen. Hancock's arrival at the critical mo
ment on tho battle field of Gettysburg, a
baltle that by common consent is now ad
mitted to have decided the i'ato of the Un
ion and fixed the final result of the war.
Of General Haucock'a individual action
atjGettj'sburg it would require a volume to
tell. His was really the action or the army,
and Round Top, Culp's 41111 and Seminary
Heights were his creations. Ho sent word
to Gen. Meade that that was the place to fight
and seizing the favorable positions, with the
eyo of consumate general, hung on to them
until Meado brought up the whole army and
delivered his battle.
Till! IXCAP.NATION 01' WAlt.
Hancock was grand and magnificent ill
the battle of Gettysburg and seemed the
very incarnation of war. The second day he
was at Cemetery Heights during the fright
ful cannonade when tho rebels concentraicd
lire of one hundred and fifty guns on our
lines. The air was full of missiles; streams
ol shot nnd shell screamed and hissed every
where; it .seemed as though nothing could
live under the terrible fire men and horses
were torn limb from limb; caissons exp'.od
id one after another in rapid succession,
blowing tho gunners to pieces. Tho infant
ry hugged the ground closely and sought ev
ery slight shelter that light earthworks af
forded. It was literally a storm of shot nnd
shell, like the fall of rain drops or the beat
of haiUtones. Those who had taken part
in every battlo ol the war had never seen
anything like that caunouade, and the old
est soldiers began to feel uneasy for the re
sult. Hundreds and thousands were stiick
en down; tboshrieksof animals and screams
of wounded men were appalling; still the
awful rushing sound ot flying missiles vvtnt
on nnd apparently never would cease, It
was then when the firmest hearts had begun
to quail, the army witnessed one of the
grandest sights ever beheld by any army on
the earth. Suddenly a band began to play
"Tho Star Spangled Manner," and General
Haucock, with his ssaff Major Mitchell,
Captain Illngham, Captain Parker, Captain
Rrnnson with coips llig flying in tho hands
of Private Wells, appeared on the right of
his line uncovered nnd rnda down the frnut
of his men to the left. The soldiers held
their breath, expecting every moment to
see him fail from his horse pierced by a
dozen bullets, but still ho rode on, while
tho shot roared and crashed around him,
every moment tearing great gaps in the
ranks by his side.
stormed at by shot and shell,
lioldly bo rode, and well.
Kvery soldier felt his heart thrill as he
witnessed tho magnificent courago of Ids
General, and he resolved to do something
that day which would equal it iu daring.
Just as Hancock reached the left of his line
the rebel batteries ceased to play, and their
infantry, 18,000 strong, were seen emerging
from the woods and advanciug up the hill.
Hancock knew the artillery fire had been
intended to demoralize his men nnd cover
the advance of llieir infantry, which was to
make tlio real attack. Turning his horse he
rodo slowly up his line from lelt to right,
holding his hat in his hand, bowing and
smiling to the troops as they lay flat on the
ground, Hardly had he reichcd Ihe right
of the lino when the men, who, inspired by
tlio couiage or their General, could hardly
restrain themselves, received orders to at
tack tho advancing rebels. Eight guns
which had concentrated opened their brazen
mouths aud streams of blue bullets flew
from the muzzles of our rifles to the bteasts
of the confederates. It was an awful dsy,
aud Longstrcct's "Old Guard of the South"
melted away like wax under that terrible
fire. Of the 18,000 who came to the attack,
0,000 fell or were captured on the hill side.
Thirty stand of colors and an Immense num-
berof small arms were taken. Hancock was
everywhere, riding (he storm of battle as if
ho bore a charmed life. At last, just in the
moment of victory, he was seen to reel from
his siddla and would havo fallen to tbo
ground had ho not been helped from his
hoise. A ball had pierced his thigh, and
for a lime it was thought the wound was
"Tell General Meade," said Hancock, ad-
dressing his aide, Colonel Mitchell, "that the
troops under my command havo repulsed

He was always faithful and reliable."
Hancock did not recover from his wound
uutll December, 1803, when, althyugh still
quite lame, he reported for duty, and was
sent North to recruit his corps. He was
tendered a reception at Independence Hall
by the citizens of Philadelphia, and received
the hospltalliics of the cities of Huston, Al
bany and New ork, In March. 18GL ho
rejoined his corps aud participated in tho
names ot the Wilderness with Grant. Ho
commanded the Second and Juris of tho
Fifth and Sixth Corps, amounting in all to
00,000 men. He fought at Aleiop's house,
and at Spottsylvaula c.iurt house, cspturlng
"Stonewall" Jackson's old brigade, 40,000
pilsoners and thirty colors. He was at North
Anne, and did molt of the fighting there.
He commanded at tho bloody assaults on
Cold Harbor, and did his best to execute
Grant's orders. The fighting was desperate
and Hancock's l.iss could not have fallen far
short of 12,000 He was on the south side
of the James river, nnd rande tho assaults on
Petersburg. He was with Sheridan, and at
tacked tho enemy at Deep Uoltoni, taking
four pieces of artillery, six hundred prison
ers and thrco stand uf cilois. Ho was at
Petersburg nnd vvitntsed tho explosion of
tho mlno ou the morning of July 30, The
advance up the James river, August 12,
18GI, was under his command, nnd he han
dled tho Second nnd Tenth Corps of the
Army of the .ames aud Gregg's division cf
cavalry with such consummate skill as tu
elicit expressions uf admiration from even
General Grant, He fought the battlo of
Reams' Btatlou, Aug. 25, and had his horso
shot under him. Ho fought the battle of
Iloydton road, capturing 1,000 prisoners
and two stand of colors.
With the battle of Iloydton General Han
cock's active fightlDgln the war ceased. Prt
sident Lincoln, who had learned to plscc a
hiyli estimate on General Hancock's abil
ities, ordered him to Washlngion and or
dered hi in to proceed at onco aud 'organize
an army of 00,000 veterans from discharged
volunteers who had served an enlistment.
Tho use of the army was alone prevented by
the surrender of Lee nnd the ending of the
war. At the close of the war Hhocock com
manded Iho Army of the Shenandoah, re
lieving General Sheridan. This army con
slstedof 30,000 men of nil arms, and was
destined to move south with Hancock's 00,
000 veterans and join General Shermnn, but
Joe Jtdinson threw up the spongo and ren
dered the movement unnecessary,

General Hancock's career since the war is
so well known it needs but little mention
here. Fur his services during tlie war ho
was appointed a brigadier and nfterwards a
major general in tho regular army, and as
signed In the command of the Middle De
partment. Iu 1800 ho took command of the
Department of Missouri and conducted two
campalgi.s against hostile Indians, taking

of all arms.

New Orleans lo command the stales of Tex
as and Louisiana. It was in this field of la
bor that he distinguslicd himself by setting
the example of an offictr of tho army with
extraordinary powers strenuously insisting
upon ti e entire subordination of civil to
military authority iu time of peace. Among
the military commanders during the recon
struction period ho was conspicuous in this
regard, and the positions then laid down in
his general orders and correspondence did
more perhaps than anything else to make
him ihe ideal soldier in the minds of consti
tutional Democrats. In 1S08 he was re
lieved at his own request, and in 1SG9, '70,
'71 and '72 commanded the Department of
Dakota, Sinco then he has commanded
