Description

Excerpt from Society of the Army of the Cumberland, Sixth Reunion: Dayton, 1872 Mine is the pleasing duty to-day, to appear before you, as the representative of the citizens of Dayton, for them and in their name to Welcome you to our city. Mine is the proud honor to speak in behalf of the forty thousand people of this city, and figuratively take by the hand, and tender the freedom of the place, for them, to you, the now present representatives of that gallant army, whose name is written, in the blood of fallen comrades, on the fields of Perryville, Stone River, Chickamaugua, Lookout Mountain, Mission Ridge, Resaca, Ke'nesaw, Peach Tree Creek, Atlanta, Jones boro, Bentonville, Franklin, Nashville; and on scores of others, which I need not recall, their names are inscribed upon your bullet riddled banners; and the fact that these names, to-day, can scarcely be deciphered upon their tattered folds, only instances the more fully how long and 'how bravely they were borne before the face of the foe, and how much this people, and all others of this great land, owe to that army - how much you deserve this welcome, and how much greater the honor I must feel it is to me, to be allowed to extend it to you.
