PEOPLE OF ATLANTA CHEER

Remains of Lee's Immortal Army,
Eight Thousand Strong Parade
Some in Civilian Clothes and Some
The Confederate veterans reunion of
1919, which was held in Atlanta, Ga.,
came to a close Friday night, Oct. 10,
with a grand ball at the auditorium
armory, but the principal features of
the occasion was the old soldiers parad
ing the streets, in their annual parade.
ihe remnant of Lee s armies that
marched Friday,, was little more than
;,000 strong, some in uniform of the
old Confederate gray, and others in
civillian clothes. The streets, gaily
decorated for.the occasion, were lit
eraly crowded with spectators who
cheered and wept and laughed as tne
heroes of the sixties passed many of
them for the last time.
Boy scouts carried water for the old
soldiers and the Red Cross ambulances
followed in the wake of the various
divisions, but few of those -who started
out to march would accept a ride eveni
though overcome. Here and there vet
erans dropped out of line and rested
on the curb; then joined the next divi
sion that came along
lhe parade took nearly two hours
to pass the reViewing stand, the old
soldiers themselves being almost out
numbered by their escorts of honor,
and members of bands that accompa
nied them. The bands and the machine
gun battalion of the Fifth division of
regulars, stationed at Camp Gordon,
was one of the escorts. Local military
schools. sent their cadets and various
civic and fraternal organizations also
were in tne line. 'There were also a
few representatives of Confederate
navy, headed by Admiral Wright, of
General K. M. Van Sandt, command
er-in-chief of the veterans, headed the
parade, accompanied by Brigadier
Oteneral Lewis, commandant at Camp
Gordon. As a token of esteem for the
veterans the regulars on suggestion of
their officers, saluted the Confederate
flags, especially the score or more of
bullet torn battle flags that were
brought forth again and carried at the
head ox- companies. . ; .
Gaily decorated automobiles bear
ing maids and sponsors from each of
the former Coniederate states, and
from others where the United Daugh
ters of the Confederacy were repre
sented, added a touch of color and
life to the occasion. California was
represented as was West Virginia,
Colorado and others. The cars flew
tne stars and stripes and the stars
and bars together and many veterans
carried both flags. Flags of the allied
nations were also represented. One
company of veterans was headed by a
color bearer holding up a frame from
which floated small banners typifying
every nation that went to war. witn
the central powers. ' '
At the head of the Gate City Guard
of Atlanta, marched two young girls
dressed in the hoop skirts, and panta
lettes of the antebellum days.
Two contingents of veterans, "com
pany A," from Memphis, and a Nash
ville company, were fully equipped,
carrying their rifles, with the old time
The scene was not entirely military,
for the yeterans yielded to the spirit
of the day ' and shouted and ' threw
kisses at pretty girls. Others stopped
to dance jigs to show that they were
not as old as they might seem Every
one among them seemed to be having
the most enjoyable time of his life.
