CONCORD, N. C, FEBRUARY 1, 1889.
cern you now that in fact concerns
me and every true North Carolinian.
The star of the young Confederacy
weit down iti blood and disaster.
The cause of the heroic South was a
lost cause, and fattful Appomattox
closed the scene. The armies of the
North, aided bv 400,000 Southern
men in the border States mainly,
and the lleeingslaves to the number
of 100,000, with all Europe as a re
cruiting ground, after foil lon
years of lighting, triumphed. The
"conquered banner" was forever
furled, it had floated proudly upon
hundreds of frelds of carnage, but
at las the time came when it was
to be laid away, and tfrre brave men
who had marched under it? brigiit
folds in sunshiue and storm- were to'
resume ti avocations of peace once
"Furl that banner, true 'tis gory
Yet 'tis wreathed around w ith glory,
And 'twill live in song and story
Though its folds are in the dust;
For its fame on brightest pages,
iFenned by poets and by sages,
Shall go sounding down the ages,
i Furl- i'ts folds though now wo must."
What has North Carolina done to
show its appreciation of the heroes
who upheld her sacred cause,-and at
the front displayed such unfaltering
devotion and magnificent courage!''

attest to coming generations the re
