sacrificed their lives in protection of the
weak and the innocent. It was this
class of men who constituted the mass
ol that great army, and this is especially
true ot Ihe part that did the actual fight
ing on both sides. It Is true that liars,
and thieves, and cowards, and cut
throats entered the army; but these
never remained long in the presence of
imminent danger, nor could they with
stand real and true discipline they us
ually formed the contingent in Ihe rear
and thus unfortunately have given non
combatants of the north, distorted ideas
of that patriotic army which saved the
nation. The men who composed the
mass of the army were honest, upright
and virtuous; men who would disdain to
do a mean thing; men who had wives
and sweethearts at home whom they
loved and respected, and for w hom they
would have sucritlced their own lives
nil her than have brought disgrace upon
these loved ones by acts of cowardice or
brutality. Nor were these men drunk
ards, in fact, they used less of liquor
than if they had been at homo. The
grand stales of Kansas, and Iowa, and
the Dakota's and the states west of the
Mississippi, have been peopled chiefly
by the families of those gallant men who
were lortunnto enough to escape the
leaden hail of the battlefield. These
men have helped to make prohibition
slates and are ever ready to enforce the
law. They are the men who in Wyo
ming, Montana and Kansas have either
partially or wholly remov.d women

which is fast passing away. They are

Broadened every man is not a myth, it
is real. No class of men is today more
loyal to duty than the soldier; none
more prompt; none who have a higher
regard for rightful authority ; none more
obedient and law abiding as citizens.
When the great army was about to be
disbanded in 1804, non-combatants with
distorted views of army life, and without
a knowledge of the effects of discipline
and the education which these men had
received, trembled for the safety of the
nation. But 1,000,000 men returned to
ciyil life without creating a jar to the
state. They returned to civil life the
lovets of law and order. They returned
strong, self-reliant men. They returned
broader, more charitable men, men
ready to do more for their fallen and
stricken foes than any other class. They
had been developed and educated in the
great business world by contact with
men, and when they were set free they
gave an impulse to the business
industries of this country such as it
had never before seen. The average age
of the men who entered the service did
not exceed 22 years. They came from
the farm, the mechanic's bench, from
the Btore and shop, from every profes
sion, from the school room, the college
and the university. They were alike in
a lack of acquaintance with the world or
a knowledge of their own possibilities.
They were brought from the restraint of (
parental authority to be taught under
the rank and file, intelligence was nec
essarily made the chief factor for Ihe se
lection. Noncommissioned officers
were selected on account of their intelli
gence, culture and fidelity, than be
cause of their superior courage. Men
were detailed as clerks in the quarter
master's and commissary department,
and received extra pay for their services
because of their ability as accountants.
Upon the organization of companies men
were frequently chosen as line officers on
account of their popularity and without
reference to their education or fitness for
command. Such men through public
sentiment were either forced to resign or
were passed bv, whe i promotions were
to be made. The irresponsible, or in
competent favorite, who secured a com
mission, met with universal condemna
tion from rank and file. It was a no
ticeable fact to every soldier, other
things being equal, that the best edu
cated lieutenants became captains; that
the best educated captains became ma
jors, and tbe most brilliant colonels be
came generals. It was soon discovered
that education gave men rank and place.
provided t.'iey were endowed with cour
age and fidelity. These tacts stimu
lated every young man who had ca
pacity and ambition, to educate him
self as soon as he returned to civil life.
Hence, after the war closed the prepa-
torv schools all over the north werw
crowded with soldiers and our colleges
and universities continued to graduate
them from their halls as late as 1873.
The education of these men was not a
mistake. Thev had already attained a
practical knowledge of the world before
entering the college and hence after
graduation entered upon their life work
with a vigor and a power which gave
them prestige, end today such men are
the leaders in every department of the
business and professional world. Hence,
I repeat, that the methods upon which
promotions were made inspired every
soldier with a desire for an education.
The stimulation which the war gave to
reading has never been equaled in any
period of human history. The private
who had been in the service for three
years was thoroughly intelligent upon
what was going on in every department,
east, west, central or southern. He was
a student of the daily papers, and from
his knowledge ef military strategy
could divine the next movement to be
made upon the checker board. Tha
daily paper found purchasers in every
company, and every item of army news,
the details and description of campaigns,
as well as the discussions in congress on
questions of the highest interest to the
