Not illustrated. 1870 edition. Excerpt: ...the organ, and the singing was excellent. Major Bowen and Captain Al. Newlin were there, and scores of others whom 1 shook hands with. Major Biddle and I spent half an hour in Bowen's tent. At 4 we dined in General Meade's tent, with none others but Major-General Humphreys and Colonel Lyman, of Boston, chief of staff.
