Concluded from TuKe l.J
and In a second or more there was a tem
pest of crylni?, hriekinB, burstlnti shells.
The Union guns and other" batteries akin
the line replied. The roar of the ope.ilntt
battle thundered awuy far to the right;
the lines were formed at onee and the men
loy down on the ground. After this Iron
storm raj?el for a time the men wit
nessed a slKht that will never be forgot
ten. Kmc! Kin from the woods on the
slopes opposite the left solid bodies of In
fantry marching by columns of battalion
came' steadily toward the I'nion lino,
their bayonets scintillating in the sun
light, as If aflame. On they cume until
they crossed the little stream, and there
deployed Into four (iltlm-t lines of battle
as steadily as If on parade. Scarcely could
It he realized that thoso men were march
ing toward the I'nkm line, In the bright
sunlight, with deadly Intent. Heretofore
In Virginia the confederates had been
partially screened In their approaches, but
now nil was like a panorama spread bo
fore the Union lines. Krum those lines
could be seen shells tearing, first through
their column, then through the lines cf
buttle, making wide gaps and throwing
tip clouds of dust. They falter but a mo
ment: the ranks are closed again, and like
a dark tide, on flowed their advance.
What chance have the thin Union ranks
against those four distinct heavy battle
lln- advunclng to assault them? Two
ranks of Union men the confederates
eight but not a man In that third line
flinched; there was a dead-sot and dcler
mltHxl expression on each man's face. At
the footof the hill the Union caennon could
not bo to depressed as to harm them. The
time had come for the use of the more
deadly small arms. A momentary halt.
Will they assault? The old read yell
rings out; forward they rush. Our own
cannons were bellowing above us. The
shells of the enemy were shrieking over
our heads. There was a continuous crarh
of musketry that sounded like a tierce
devouring prairie tire, yet above all this
babel of horrid round could be heard the
shouts nnl yells of the combatants, and
the shrieks "and groans of wounded and
dying men. The thin Union lines were
beaten back from sheer weight of num
bers. There were desperate hand-to-hand
encounters, hair-breadth escapes and
strange episodes. At last the enemy's
fire slackened a little, while with wollish
eves they were watching every chance to
pick off our men. The battle raged on at
Intervals till late In the night. The morn
ing sun of July 3 sent down its rays like
llery darts, and saw battery after battery
brought Into position. The most terrllle
combat the world had ever known was
about to take place. Well might every
man doubt whether anything could sur
vive the concentrated tire of those rebel
guns. Well might he dread the effect of
the awful cannonade upon our lines of In
fantry that lay upon tlu ground behind
such slight shelter as they could ilnd. At
last the rebel fired a single gun. Almo-t
Instantly a flashing line of light swept
along their massed batteries. A perfect
torm of Iron sw.pt through the air.
But this was hut the nrelude to the In
fernal symphony that followed. The very
earth beneath, and the hills, and rocks,
seemed to reel like drunken men. And the
horrible din was doubled when our batter
ies opened. For nearly two hours this
most terrific lire was continued, during
which time the shrieking shell, the clash
of falling timber, the fragments of rocks
living thromrh the air. shattered rrom the
cliffs' by so'ld shot, the heavy muttering
from the valley between the opposing
armies, the splash of bursting shrapnell
and the fierce neighing of wounded artil
lery hoeses mad. a picture terribly grand
and sublime, which artist cannot denlct,
ror torque describe. A light wind lifted
the eclouds of stroke.
Thank Ood, our lines were unbroken.
AH honor to the steadfast men who had
kept their places through the most awful
artillery combat ever waged.
Like a Wide Itlue Ribbon.
For nearly two mortal hours the Infan
try had been obliged to lie still, and see
their comrades on every side torn and
mangled to death. But like a wide blue
ribbon as far as the eye could reach there
they lay, with the sunlight glittering on
their polished muskets. Itut those bellow
ing guns were soon to be forgotten. Their
part In the bloody drama was to be super
ceded and a sight was to be witnessed that
can never be surpassed. Behold, from
the woods on the crest of the ridge oppo
site, over a mile away, came long lines of
infantry. Our position was to be assault
ed. The dead and wounded were carried
to tho rear and the army stripped Itself
like an athlete, for the final struggle,
our batteries opened with solid shot at Ilia
distant rebfl Infantry, but there was no
hesitation; on the line came. It seemed as
though it were the launching of a human
thunderbolt. All ever witnessed In Hu
man amphitheaters was child'. play In
comparison with that tlnnl charge. The
enemy seemed to have gathered up all
their strength and desperation for one
fierce, conclusive effort, that would sweep
over and wash out our obstinate resist
niice. They swept up as before; the flower
of the army to the front; victory staked
upon the Issue. In some places they ac
tually lifted up and pushed back our lines;
but that terrible position of ours! Wher
ever they entered enfilading fires rrom
one-half sore of crests swept away th-lr
columns like merest chaffi yet on they
civme. They were In point blank range.
From one hundred Iron throats their ur
tlllery had been thundering on our bnr-l-cades.
As the tempest of fire appronchd
Its height; and this human torrent, shrink
ing snd diminishing, flowed on; the order
at last came, "Fire!" and from thrice six
thousand guns came a sheet of smoking
H'ltie, a crash, a rush of leaden death.
The line literally melted away. But thera
came the second line like a dark resist
less wave, tipped with light as the nun
g:inted oh their bayonets through rifts of
smoke. It had been our on supreme ef
fort on the moment; we were not equal
to another. Up to tho rlfie pits they came
across them over tho barricades, the
momentum of their charge, the mere ma
chine strength of their crmblned action
swept dhem on. Our thin line could fight,
but It' bad not weight enough to opno-
this momentum. It was pushed b'Mn-1
the guns. Right on they came. They
were upon our guns were bayonettlng tne
gunners were waiving their flag over our
pieces. But they had penetrated to the
fatal point. The crimson wave of tresaon
had reached Its highest mark. A storm of
grape and cannister tore Its way from
man to man, and marked Irs track with
dead bodies straight down their line.
.They had exposed themselves to the en
flladlng firing of the guns on the western
slope of Cemetery Hill, and the flank at
'taclc of DOubleday's division of the old
First corps, of which the One Hundred and
Forty-third regiment formed part. That
exposure sealed their fate. The line reeled
back In an instant In fragments. Our
men were just behind the guns. They
leaped forward upon the disordered mass;
but there was little need of fighting now.
That charge had been a fruitless sacrifice,
Thy gathered up their broken fragments,
formed their line, and slowly marched
away. It was not a rout; it was a bitter,
.stinging, crushing defeat. For once .he
Army of th Potonvao had won a rlMii,

burg was made the bloody turning point
of the rebellion; the crimson baptismal
ground of the redeemed republic. John
Brown's raid on Harper's Ferry was a
declaration of war by one man. It was a
small uffalr in Itself just a fanatical old
man, and a few devoted followers, hurl
ing themselves to death uion the jugged
rocks of a continent of wrong it waa but
the Hash of the meteor bursting from ob
scurity, lurid for a moment, then plunging
down to darkness and deeper night; it w is
the low grumble and jar of tho earth
quake, which tells us that the "sure and
(Inn set earth" Is swimming beneath our
feet. Old John Brown was summarily
tried and hanged, but his scaffold became
the scene of exaltation of a. grand self
immolation for the uplifting of lowliest
"John Brown's body lay mouldering in
But his soul went marching on."
The Death Struggle of .slavery.
It marched to the south, and it marched
to tho north, and everywhere it was a
gleaming sword summoning the nation
to the Uealh struggle of freedom mid
slavery. You said when you enlisted that
the only question was between Union and
disunion, but you knew in your heurts
that the issue was a broader one than
that that the leal Issue was freedom or
slavery, and the hour had come for the
nation to choose:
"Ouce to every man and nation comes the
moment to decide,
In tho strife of Truth with Falsehood, for
Hit kooJ or evil side;
Some Krettt cause, Clod's new Messiah of
fering each the bloom or 'blight.
Parts the goats upon the left hand, and
tho sr'neep upon the rlnlit.
And tho choice goes by forever 'twixt that
darkness and that Unlit."
The nation chose the side of freedom,
and the u-sult or the mighty conflict was
more momentous to the human race than
can be found in all the myriad paces of
history. It lifted the slave to the dignity
ol manhood, clothed him wltli the garb uf
citizenship, and gave us a land without a
shackle und without a master. We began
to make our nation at Vorktown, rim wo
finished at Appomattox. The world was
unmtvd to see how promptly nnd quiet. y
the contending hosts walked back and as
sumed their peaceful a'oc:itloiis. The
Union wus preserved a race emancipated,
nnd "the Star-Spangled Banner" once
more "triumphantly waved" over n re
constructed, regenerated and reunited
country, it floats today so hlnh that all
tho world cun see it. It floats us the em
blem of patriotism, the symbol of free
dom, the badit? of bravery, the Insignia uf
honor, the seal or an Indissoluble Union.
It was ror you on the battle line, und
IliKitins above the decks of the bat le
shlpa, more than the Roman eagle or the
white plume uf Navarr". Wherever It
waves It marks the hallowed spot whcie
truth must dwell end freedom cannot die.
It siieuks In such wondrous silent clo
qiunce, thut oratory and poetry cannot
equal, and it typllk's all that Is great In
human action; n'l that is grand In hii'itan
thought. It represents the last und best
hope of the earth.
"Flag of the rainbow and banner of stars!
Emblem of might, and shield of the
Never to droop while our soldiers and
Kully to guard It from outrage unholy."
Never may shame, or misfortune attend
Knmlty sully, or treachery rend It;
While but a man Is ulive to defend It,
Flag of the rainbow, and banner of stars!"
We are a great nation the greatest In
civic virtue and developed manhood, In
the world. Every soldier that fought to
suppress the rebellion helped to make us
great. He fought not tor profit or gain,
but ror love or country's devotion to lt:
flag und Tor freedom. There is no true
greatness no greatness worthy or being
perennially remembered except that
which embodtes noble thoughts working
toward a worthy end, recognizing at once
the dignity or humanity and the worahlp
rulness or God, and endeavoring" to co-en-twlne
in ithe execution or some purpose
both or these elements or contemplation
both of those incentives to action.
The Wealth of a Nation.
A nation is not great by reason of Its
wealth or reputation. It is not great by
reason of Its prowess on the sea, or the
strength of Its standing army. Territorial
extent ami commercial prosperity do not
make a nation great.' All these simply
contribute ton nation's greatness. Urti-m
and Palestine, whence have proceeded the
mightiest Intellectual and spiritual move
ments of all history, were territorially
and numerically contemptibly small. Y'es,
the land which gave Homer and Sophocles
to pot-try; I'l rides ur.l Praxiteles to
sculpture: Herodotus and Thueydd" to
history; Plato and Aristotle to philos
ophy; Alexander to war and Loonldas to
patriotism, was In territorial extent In
slgnlllcent. And Palestine, the land
which gnve .Moses to law; David, the
sweet singer of Israel, to poetry and
song; Isaiah to prophecy; Paul and John
to oratory; the Bible to literature and
Christ to history, was in length and
breadth still more Insignificant. It was
the manhood of Greece and Palestine that
made them great. Of a truth, the poet
sang, and his words should find an echo
In every pntrlot's heart:
"By the soul only- the nations shall be
great and free, therefore be ye men." It
was the manhood or thirteen colonies
that threw off tyranny and oppression,
battled from Lexington to Yorktown, and
gained a name and a place among the na
tions of the earth. It was the manhood
of "sixty-one" that rose In its might when
Sumpter was fired upon nnd trampled
treason under Its feet. It was that man
hood that discharged its captives without
ransom or reward, without promises or
coalition,, save or a renewed oath or alle
giance to the very government they had
attempted to destroy. Men flint now take
their part In the drstlny of this nation will
soon pass away. Ood grant, that they, In
whose hands the nation's future Is to. be
wrought out, will- have the manhood to
make it still greater In the unfolding ages.
"Oh God! who rules the nation wise,
Tis thou alone can'st save.
And to the coming people grant,
That they be wise and brave;
For, as we ws love our starry flag.
And lo thy emblems bow;
Oh, bless our land, as freedom's land,
One hundred years rrom now!"
We are hire. today to dedicate n. tablet
to mark the position or the fine Ilundrjd
and Forty-third repiment or Pennsylvania
volunteers In th" final repulse of the
brave .Picket's charge. How that regi
ment met that charge has been written on
more enduring .tflbleis than granite or
marble It has been written on the tablets
of history there to live when nil those
monuments shell have crumbled Into dust.
This tablet will tell us where southern
valor went down bfforo northern car
nage. It speaks to us nnd warns ns to
be ever vigilant ; to remain firm nnd stead
fast for truth. Ju:--tlce nnd liberty, never to
fnlt:r when dancer threatens our rree In
stitutions; to bent back every wave or so
cialism or nnnThlsm. nrri to trample tin
rt"r feet everything that Is un-American.
This tablet will stand as a Olbrnltar, to
mark tho plnee where the surging waves
of treason bat airninat an Immovable,
living rock of hxolm, patriotism and en
durance. Every nation hns its monu
ments, whether of art, of glory or of
science. They are the representatives of
national character. The people look up to
them as memorials or their greatness,
snd strnnrers look upon them to know the
nation's worth. We dig them out of the
ruins of Br.Uniilty to learn what antiquity
we. and we reek them In the structure cf
mo'lern so"lcty in know what the modern
world has done. What Is the monument
or the American neolc? One imnrove
ments are all social Imnrovcments: we
have no other glory which Is not held In
common with other nations. But we !o
clsltn to have acknowledged, nssertd
snd maintained principles or society and
government which were never acknowl
edged bnfore by any nation. We have em
bodied thf.m in a great charter of hnmm
right". It Is the solo representative of
our character. It Is our monument, nnd It
Is gnxrf upon by others with an Interest
nnd Intensity greater than was ever fixed
upon the Pyramids of Kgypt, or the gilded
and magnificent structures of the world.
Lesson In Patriotism.
1Ae comer-stone of our monument wns
bathed In the blood of our revolutionary
fathers, but It was built In compromise,
until transformed toy the power of war,
Into the fullness of freedom's magna
charts, In whose light the Ood-glven law
of equality for man, stood rorth resplend
ent, when Its crewnlng summit, stained
with the martvred Lincoln's blond, was
placed In Its lofty position, by a million
brave and heroic boys In blue. If then,
there Is any glory In our government, any
thing valuable In Its principles, let vn
studv. love, venerate and always ialously
guard the great monument of this na
tionthe constitution of the United States.
Then In this land, where each can act and
speak for Myself, where love of country,
the oceantlde of patriotism, flows deen
and strong, where religious freedom shall
bear sway over a. virtuous, Intelligent snd
pntrlotlc people, our whole national being
shall be elevated by this glorious struc
ture, It -will be In the future as It has
been In the past, en anchor to keep 4hls
republic to ber moorings throughout the
fiercest totms. secure In the might of a
national Intelligence, virtue and union,
though the waves of commotion of other
nations may b-eck on our shores, and the
deep mutterlngs of the convulsions of
tarth'n dynasties, uptorn from their old
fuunduttnns, may be hjurd across the At
lantic! Vet, serene In her own Imprest
naiilt. strength, our republic shall calmly
regard the changes unmoved, to await her
deL-ilny iu high reliance upon Him, v. ha
laid the foundation onl reared the super
structure of her prosperity nnd greatness,
and with the voices of militant solemnly
swell the harmony of cur national sous;
"Our Father Ood to thee.
Author of Liberty;
To the we sing.
Long may our land be brlg.rt, '
With freedom's hoiy light,
Protect us by thy might. -Ureat
