The line of march was through Broadway, Knight, High,
Broad, Dorrance, Westminster, South Main, Transit, Ben-
efit, Meeting, North Main, and Steeple Streets, to Exchange
Place and the Monument. A perfect ovation greeted the
column along the whole distance. Flags and decorations
were in abundance, sidewalks, housetops, windows, and
every conceivable place that would afford a view of the
procession was occupied. Waving handkerchiefs were
met at every step, and everything indicated that the dedi-
cating services were a willing tribute from a grateful people.
There were nearly two thousand Veterans in the ranks.
The procession reached Exchange Place about one o'clock,
when the Newport Artillery, the Governor's Body-Guard,
escorted him to the stand near the Monument. The compa-
nies of Veterans then formed in a solid body at the lower
part of the open space with the Uniformed Militia in a
compact form in the rear, the lines extending entirely
across Exchange Place. When the word was given, this
great body of men, more than four thousand in number,
marched in division front up the wide thoroughfare towards
the monument. The solid host, the many tattered battle flags,
the blue uniforms of the Veteran Corps, the brilliant clothes
of the citizen soldiers, the gleaming of the muskets and
bayonets, and the firm and regular marching to tbe music of
sixteen bands, was a sight never to be forgotten by those
who witnessed it. As the column advanced, the spectators
on the stand and the immense crowd which filled the side
walks and grounds adjacent to the Monument and Eailroad
Depot, applauded, cheered and waved their handkerchiefs
over and over again.
As soon as General Burnside, Chief Marshal, had massed
the Veterans and the Military, he despatched one of his
14 DEDICATION OF THE
Assistants to the Committee on the platform, to make it
known, and took his stand with a large number' of officers,
including several from other States, upon the buttresses and
steps of the Monument. The services now commenced and
proceeded as follows:
Dedication Overture arranged for the occasion, by the
American Brass Band.
Chorus, ''God of Israel," by a Choir of three hundred
singers, under the direction of Edwin Baker, Esq.
Introductory remarks by His Excellency Governor
Padelford, as follows :
Fello"^ Citizens : — The occasion which has called us together this day
is the most memorable that has ever occurred in our history. We meet to
do honor to the brave men who have given up their lives for their countr}-,
and whose names, on tablets of bronze, are immortalized on the beautiful
monument about to be uncovered before you. Like all the works of man,
granite and bronze may in tmi^ crumble and decay; but the memory of
these brave men will not perish. While time lasts, their sacrifices will form
a brilliant page in the history of their country, shedding a bright lustre on
their native State, forever covering them Avith imperishable glory and
Let us be grateful to Divine Providence that so many who went forth to
<lo battle, were permitted to return, and are present with us on this occasion.
Their hearts must be moved with a feeling of just pride, that the memory
of their comrades in arms is this day to be consecrated, not only by monu-
mental art, but by suitable exercises before this vast assemblage of our
fellow citizens from all parts of our beloved State.
It is a fitting occasion for us all to drink at the fountains of Divine inspi-
ration, lessons of wisdom and of patriotism for our future guidance in life.
It is not becoming for me to speak at this time of the daring deeds of our
soldiers, or of the grand results to humanity and to the world, which the
war has effected. This will be done by one who has alike stood by them in
battle, and who has administered spiritual comfort to them in the hour of
Let the Monument be uncovered !
While the curtain which enveloped the Monument was
being slowly withdrawn, a dirge was played by the Band.
soldiers' and sailors' monument. 15
The solemnity of the spectacle touched the hearts of the
spectators and drew tears from hundreds. But when the
whole structure appeared with its beautiful bronze statues,
cheer upon cheer, loud and long, arose from the vast multi-
tude which filled the square. Mr. Rogers, the sculptor and
designer of the Monument, being called for, came forward
and was presented to the spectators by the Hon. William
Grosvenor, one of the State Committee, and loudly cheered.
The State Committee, under whose charge the Monument
had been executed, were next called for, when they appeared,
made their acknowledgment, and were also cheered.
Prayer was offered by the Rev. Dr. Thayer, of Newport.
'Chorus, '*The Lord is Great," was sung by the Choir.
The Rev. Augustus Woodbury was then introduced and
delivered the Oration.
Fellow - Citizens, Comrades, Friends : There seems
scarcely a place for words in the presence of this memorial
of immortal deeds. The structure, — the occasion, — speaks.
Those mute figures which represent the defenders of the
Kepublic by land and sea, are vocal above the power of
human speech. That long list of brave men who passed
through seas of blood, and at last died that the nation might
live, is at once the eulogy and the perpetual record of a vir-
tue, which survives death. This vast concourse, gathered
from every part of our State, attests the desire of the people
to honor the memory of those who fell in their defence.
This assembly of comrades, of the same grand army of the
living and the dead, speaks of victory won through severest
struggles, and peace secured through sanguinary strife.
Those tattered flags, rent by the missiles of the foe, and
begrimmed by the dust and smoke of battle, add their
pathetic story of heroism and sacrifice. The day itself
recalls the memories of that great conflict in which our
best and bravest fell. IIow little can be expressed by words
that reach only the bodily ear, while these voices are speak-
ing to the soul ! At best, it can be but a feeble offering
that I bring to the departed, and a simple flower that I cast
upon their graves.
18 DEDICATION OF THE
The erection of this monument has a profoundly important
purpose. It is to perpetuate the remembrance of what
the men of Khode Island did and suffered in behalf of the
entire country. It is to aid in quickening the sentiment of
patriotism in the national heart, and in educating the
national character to a complete self-devotion to duty.
When visiting Westminster Abbey, and contemplating the
monuments of the worthies of English history, with which
it is filled, I could not avoid the thought, that these were
the teachers of a nation's life, as well as the witnesses to a
nation's gratitude. For here the men, women and children of
England could come to learn how "the path of duty" be-
comes "the way to glory." Here would be aroused the
desire to emulate the greatness of which the marble told.
We, indeed, have no Westminster Abbey, no venerable tem-
ple, beneath whose sacred roof a nation's pious and grateful
care collects the ashes of her honored dead. But on every
village green arises the "Soldiers' Monument," with its tale
of a fidelity and courage, which shrank not from every
danger, duty, hardship, sacrifice and death. Our memorial
edifice is the vast temple built by the Almighty's hand, and
domed by the over-arching sky. Here w^e raise the com-
memorative shaft, but more enduring still is the memory of
the dead, enshrined, not in "storied urn," but in every loyal
breast. I recall the famous words of Pericles in the funeral
oration, which he pronounced in the early part of the Pelo-
ponnesian war, over the fallen Athenian youth : "Bestow-
ing thus their lives upon the public, they have every one
acquired a praise that will never decay, a sepulchre that
will always be most illustrious — not that in which their
bones lie mouldering, but that in which their fame
is preserved, to be on every occasion eternally re-

membered, when honor is the employ of either word or
act. This whole earth is the sepulchre of illustrious men ;
nor is it the inscription on the columns in their native soil
alone that shows their merit, but the memorial of them,
better than all inscription, in every foreign nation, reposited
more durably in universal remembrance than on their own
These memorable names now thus inscribed belong to men
of every rank. There is no preeminence in death except
when value and virtue give it renown. The name of the pri-
vate soldier has a place as lasting, as that of the general of
division which heads the roll. Each one who did his work
and met his fate, as a brave man should, in the position to
which Providence assigned him, equally deserves an honora-
able commemoration. Some fell in battle on the land,
some found death upon the sea. The first and last struggle
of the war demanded each its victim. The life-blood of
some was the price of victory. The death of some added
to the anguish of defeat. Some died in the hospital,
some amid the horrors of the prison, and some were
privileged to breathe their last, soothed by the care of
friends and kindred. Some were laid away tenderly in the
soft bosom of the earth by loving hands, and some sleep in
unknown graves. All endured the toil, and fell by the
stroke of battle or disease, as Providence ordained. We
would here make no distinction. We judge of deeds, not
by the position, but by the personal character of him who
performs them, and by their own inherent worth. If the
quality of work be good, the place of performance is of
little account. Honor belongs to true manhood rather than
high rank, and lies in the spirit and manner of the doing
more than in the deed.
.20 . DEDICATION OF THE
Another fact is here to be observed. Among the Ameri-
can soldiers and sailors were men of all degrees of privilege
and training. The rich and the poor ; men Avho were
tenderly nurtured and those who were taught in adversity's
hard school ; the highly cultured and those of little learn-
ing ; men of mark and men of quiet life — of conspicuous
fame and of an obscure career ; men of all creeds, of all
parties, of all occupations, trades and professions ; of
various nativity and different race — all these met and
mingled, fused together in the fire of a common patriotism.
Remember, that this was not a compulsory, but rather a
voluntary service. Remember, that these men were accus-
tomed, for the most part, to the comforts of well-ordered
homes and peaceful avocations. Yet they freely undertook
the performance of the most difficult tasks ; endured the
hardships of the march, the voyage, the camp ; faced the
dangers of battle on field and flood, with a calm courage or
a daring bravery, which commanded the admiration of the
veterans of disciplined armies and fleets. These men, in
short, adjusted themselves to all the vicissitudes and exi-
gencies of the war with a marvellous facility and flexibility
of mind. This power of adaptation was as marked in the
men of the regular, as in those of the volunteer ser-
vice. Officers, whose duties had never exceeded the com-
mand of a seaside fort or frontier post, of an exploring
party, or a single ship's crew, suddenly found themselves
weighted with heavy responsibilities, and entrusted with
enterprises of wide importance. Rising by quick promotion,
they soon became charged with the leadership of large
armies and fleets, and the conduct of a great war, in which
the combatants were counted by the hundred thousand. Yet
these men, of necessarily small experience, proved them-

selves equal to the nation's greatest demands. I speak, of
course, in general terms. There was a certain proportion of
cowardice, unfaithfulness, incompetence. But this propor-
tion was never large, and when known, was condemned and
quietly put aside.
Whence came this remarkable power of adaptation to the
needs and duties of a great war ? How did it happen to
belong to men whose lives had mostly been spent in peace,
and far away from any sound of arms — many of whom had
to learn even the details of the manual from the start ?
Was it, that the American people were gifted with any
special aptitude for a military life ? Was there anything in
our common modes of living that indicated the existence of
any such capacity as was here displayed ? Mr. Grote, the
learned historian of Greece says : ''Neither in the life of an
individual, nor in that of a people, does the ordinary and
every-day movement appear at all worthy of those particu-
lar seasons, in which a man is lifted above his own level,
and becomes capable of extreme devotion and heroism. Yet
such emotions, though their complete predominance is never
more than transitory, have their foundations in veins of
sentiment, which are not, even at other times, wholly ex-
tinct, but count among the manifold forces tending to modify
and improve, if they cannot control human nature." It
may have been so in our national life. Doubtless, on the
surface, there was very little evidence of the great things
beneath. Yet the patient and heroic qualities of manhood
which the war demanded and developed, and which lifted
the nation above its own level, were by no means accidental
in their origin or sudden in their growth. They came up
from a living root, which ran deep into the soil of the
national character. The American citizen has had the
22 DEDICATION OF THE
schooling of two centuries and a half of conflict with the
wilderness, with wild beasts, with savage men and savage
principles. Thus has he been trained to a quick adjustment
to new circumstances and strange conditions ; to the ne-
cessity of preserving his own personal freedom' and life,
and the public order ; to the equal necessity of placing the
growing commonwealth beyond the reach of danger.
" Patriotism is impossible in a republic," said they who
did not appreciate the value of this life-long education.
'' Our republic," we say in reply — and the word comes from
lips now silent in the dust ; I read it between the lines of
yonder inscription — " Our republic is the great school of
patriotism." The American citizen accepts it as a part of
his religion, that the duty he owes to the State is next to
that he owes to his God ! This sentiment, born within him,
grew with his growth, and became the dominant power
of his manhood's life.
At the basis of the American character there were cer-
tain principles, which, slowly developing amid the circum-
stances of American history, only awaited their occasion —
the principle of obedience to the constitutional pact ; a
regard for law enacted by the representatives of the people ;
submission of private advantage to public authority ; sub-
ordination of personal interest to the public good ; reverence
for the sacredness of self-government ; and above all, and
beneath all, a deep conviction, that the body politic, which
grew out of the Declaration of Independence, was not a
mere confederacy of communities bound together by local
interest, but a nation, entitled to the service of all her
citizens to maintain her existence and heighten her glory —
a State, whose base was the fundamental law of a written
constitution, whose strength was in the loyalty of the
soldiers' and sailors' monument. 23
people, whose bonds of union were the obligations of patri-
otism, and whose increasing welfjire was the prime object of
political life ! Forty years ago Jackson said : *' The Consti-
tution of the United States forms a government, not a
league. Each state, having expressly parted with so many
powers, as to constitute jointly with other states a single
nation, cannot, from that period, possess any right to secede,
because such secession does not break a league, but destroys
the unity of a nation." The rebellion of the Southern
States and the confederacy which they formed, violated all
these principles, and so the loyal people of the Republic
fought down the one, and destroyed the other.
Other elements were not wanting, — the perception of an
ideal republic to be made real in this western world ; the
knowledge of an imperative moral law to which states must
bow ; faith in the power of religious truth, as prominent in
the rudenesses of the pioneer's and the soldier's life, as in the
refinements of settled and peaceful communities. The
moral and ideal qualities of character, which have been the
real substance of our national life from the first, cannot be
left out of our estimate of the strength of the American
Union. The power of the ideal is always the puzzle of
human selfishness. When the South tried to break away
from the North, it seemed, to all outward appearance, as
though a general disintegration would take place. Our
enemies abroad considered it as a foregone conclusion.
Disloyal people at home talked of the impossibility of re-
storing the Union. Some among ourselves, at times,
distrusted our own power. It was because the tenacity and
durability of the ideal element of national life were not well
understood. There was a certain allegiance to conscience,
and a certain faith in truth, justice, righteousness and God,
24 DEDICATION OF THE
which had underlain all our history and proved the salt of
all our life. That power which, step by step, and in the face
of dangers, difficulties and distresses, has reclaimed the
wilderness, and made it the abode of civilization and freedom,
has descended to us by direct inheritance. It came with our
fathers across the stormy seas ; it went with them through
the perils of our colonial history and the terrible struggle of
the Revolution ; it has gone with each successive stage in
our national progress to subdue the continent — the ideal,
moral, religious power, which dwelt in the hearts of the
people and gave them life ; taught them how to bear
adversity cheerfully ; saved them from the enervating in-
fluence of prosperous fortunes ; finally welded them together,
and made them capable of high and heroic deeds.
In no contest have ideas fought more conspicuously to
those who could see, than in this. On the one side were
liberty, human rights, civilization, the consecration of a con-
tinent to constitutional freedom. On the other side were
slavery, human wrongs, the barbarism which is always in-
separable from an irresponsible despotism, the dominion of a
continent in the interests of oppression. The stronger and
better ideas triumphed, as they always will and always must.
In the nature of things, there could be but one result — the
reestablishment of the State and its enthronement on a
position alike impregnable to foreign and domestic foes.
That which conquered was not altogether the power of
superior numbers, but rather the power of superior ideas.
Behind that was faith in those ideas and in God, firmly
abiding in the popular heart, expressed in the remarkable
state papers of the Executive, deeply fixed and faithfully
cherished, amid all temporary discouragements and sometimes

to its victorious end. It destroyed slavery, secession and
treason. It made the Union secure. It commanded, as
well for the finally successful cause as for the emancipation
of the slaves, .''the considerate judgment of mankind, and
the gracious favor of Almighty God."
It is not often that a great cause has for its foundation,
and for the impulse of its promotion, such depth and power
of moral earnestness. It is not surprising that, in an age
given over to the pursuit of material ends, the moral power
of the loyal states should have been anderrated and their
purpose misunderstood, both at home and abroad. It was no
struggle for empire between rival factions or rival sections,
as some foreigners professed to believe. It was the heart of
the nation striving to live and perpetuate its life. Those,
who sought to destroy the Union, did not know the strength
of the sentiment they were trying to uproot. We, who
sought to preserve the Republic, held back with long forbear-
ance from the war for which the South was urgent. We
hoped that the strife unto blood might be averted. We re-
membered how closely the North and South had stood
together in the past, in-defence of the commonwealth. We
could hardly believe that an American hand would willingly
strike the separating blow, which would deprive us of our
common heritage and our common hope. So, when the war
came, we accepted its prosecution as a duty to be performed
with persistence, but not with bitterness or hatred. When
the war ended, we applied ourselves at once to the work of
binding up the wounds, and closing the breaches it had
made. We demanded, that its results should be accepted by
those who provoked it. We still demand it. But, severe as
the contest was, I doubt if there remains, in the hearts of
those who conquered, any feeling of personal animosity
26 DEDICATION OF THE
toward those who failed. When the strife was over all such
hostilily was buried out of sight. God grant that for it
there may be no resurrection !
The moral earnestness which entered into the conflict
deepened the sense of personal responsibility. The loyal
citizen, educated to a love of free institutions, saw a personal
danger in the peril that threatened them. He had come to
feel that in them individual freedom had its best guaranty.
The free state protects, and is protected by the free man.
Each draws life from the other. Neither can exist apart.
The preservation of the Republic is the preservation of the
citizen. There is no ideal excellence, of which the citizen
dreams, that may not belong to the State, of which he is a
part. By this intimate interweaving of needs, interests,
duties, ambitions, is produced that texture of national life,
which is too tenacious to be rent asunder by violence, and
too enduring to be worn away by time. American institu-
tions have their assurance of stability in the power of
individual patriotism. Each citizen can say : "I am the
State." Each citizen will swear : "While I live, the State
shall have a defence and support."
In the camp, and under the despotism of martial law, the
soldier was still a citizen. He had his own opinions in re-
gard to questions of public policy, and could judge intelli-
gently of the plans discussed in the cabinet, and the move-
ments executed in the field. He voted. He had his
daily mail and his daily newspaper. He was in constant
communication with his home, and knew precisely what
was uppermost in the public mind. His military life lay
upon the broad basis of his intelligent political duty.

cipline, shook their heads, doubted, complained, possibly
feared, that this sense of citizenship would spoil the soldier.
But the army that saved the Kepul lie was never a machine,
but rather a living organism, that moved and acted from the
impulse of its own innate vital force. In actual warfare, the
most thoughtful and intelligent soldier was the most trust-
worthy — the best, foremost, and most steadfast. It seemed
difficult for those who stood on an equal footing at home, to
recognize and observe the distinctions of rank in the field.
But here the good sense of the American character prevented
any disturbance of order. Breaches of discipline occurred
among the unthinking and reckless, who are always
reluctant to submit to authority. But, in general, the citi-
zen soldier easily fell into the place in which his particular
duty was to be performed. For the time he held in abeyance
his democratic prerogatives, and accepted the situation, as it
was then proposed to him. He sacrificed his personal inde-
pendence to his duty to the imperilled State.
Thus it happened that the armies in the field were always
loyal, both to their immediate commanders and to the
general government. The attachments formed in army life
are proverbially strong. A popular commander*— as with
hooks of steel — binds the hearts of his soldiers closely to
himself. It is no slight matter to remove from command a
chief, to whom service has become like personal devotion.
When the governmimt found it necessary to perform this un-
gracious duty, the soldiers readily acquiesced, and bated not
a title of their obedience to the new leader. The Army of
the Potomac had, from first to last, no less than five difter-
ent commanders. In the chief command of our western armies
frequent changes took place. Yet the allegiance of our citi-
zen soldiers was unchanged, though their affections were

sometimes sorely tried. Whatever may be said or thouglit
of others, they always stood firm to their duty. In their
clear perception of duty they assured themselves that in the
business of war, the prime obligation was hearty, unquestion-
ing obedience to a superior in rank. When it is remembered
— as it always should be remembered — that these were not
veterans, accustomed by long service to obey, and knowing
no other rule, but citizens, who were wonted to independent
thought and action, and had lately been transplanted from
the freedom of home-life to the restraints of the camp, the
phenomenon was truly wonderful. Germany, in the recent
war, has shown something similar, though not altogether
like. For her landwehr and landsturm constitute a vast
military organization, with stated and regular terms of ser-
vice. In no nation of modern times, I can safely say, has
such an army of citizen soldiers, with such facility, been
raised, organized, trained to war ; taught to turn the hand
from plough, anvil, hammer, plane, pen, pencil, book to mus-
ket, bayonet, cannon, cutlass, sword, and found equally
efficient in the use of either implement. It is to the exceed-
ing honor of the American citizen that he could thus easily
assume tli^/Bse new duties, and submit himself to this new
In speaking thus warmly of our volunteer forces, I would,
in no way, disparage the services of the regular and navy.
Especially would I recognize the importance of a mili-
tary and naval education. The country cannot dispense
with its national schools at West Point and Annapolis. We
must always have, as we shall always need, well- trained of-
ficers to organize, to plan, to direct. But after all, the na-
tion's chief reliance must be, not upon large standing armies
and fleets, but upon her own citizens, loyal, facile, intelli-

gent, patriotic, always ready for a self- forgetful, devoted ser-
vice. It was gratifying to perceive the general spirit of
cordialty with which the regular and volunteer officers, both
in army and navy, fraternized with one another. There
could be no rivalry, except in striving to prove who could
serve the best and sacrifice the most. Side by side on yon-
der tablet are the names of Stevens and Rodman — friends,
comrades, brothers in arms, officers in the same corps — fit
representatives of the regular and volunteer service. The
one was educated at the national military academy. The
other came from business life. Is the laurel of the one
greener than that of the other ? Is the memory of the one
dearer than that of the other? Equally brave, erjually de-
voted, no jealousy disturbed their friendship in life, or ob-
scured their glory in death. The chief question between
such men as these, both then and now, is, what service can
each best render to the common mother of them all ?
It was also pleasing to observe the confidence which was
reposed in our volunteer officers and soldiers by the best gen-
erals in the regular army. Grant gave to Butler, and — no
wise discouraged by his failure — to Terry, the opportunity
of capturing Fort Fisher, and of winniug the honor of that
brilliant exploit. The most effective operation of the war —
Sherman's march' to the sea — was successfully performed by
a force composed almost entirely of a volunteer soldiery.
For Sherman knew the men he trusted, and trusted them
without reserve. So Farragut, with unrivalled bravery and
skill, opened the way for the volunteer soldier to occupy
New Orleans and Mobile. So Foote, with scarcely less
gallantry, cleared our western rivers for the victorious pro-
gress of our arms by land. The faithful servants of the Eepub-
lic seek only to serve her well. The trained soldier and sailor.
30 DEDICATION OP THE
the citizen and volunteer, unite in patriotic duty. The
country remembers both with equal gratitude, and gives to
both, as now and here, an equal and imperishable honor.
There was a certain poetic and religious element which
wound its silver thread through the dark texture of the
strife, to enliven and beautify it. It was noticed, both in the
active duty of the march and even of the battle, and in the
endurance of the hospital, that our soldiers had a great love
for flowers, and in many instances a deep religious sentiment.
After the battle of the Wilderness, was found upon the bor-
der of the field the body of a drummer boy, shot through and
through. His hand clasped a bunch of violets, which he had
plucked after he was struck, and on his face still lingered a
smile of delight, as if the sweet familiar fragrance had
overeome the pain of dying. 1'ouching picture — but one of
many ! Almost every knapsack had a place for a copy of the
New Testament, with a few dried leaves or flowers pressed
within it, bits of poetry, and photographs of friends at
home. The rose-bud brightened the dark uniform. The
frequent song lightened the toil of the dusty road. In the
hospital, what patience, what true and trusting faith soothed
the long hours of pain and watching, or prepared the soul to
meet the summons of death ! The American soldier had a
home behind him, and the sweet influence of that home sent
a gleam of glory athwart the gloom of war. Love, hope
and religion, that, had made home beautiful for remembrance,
still followed the young soldier. The father's honest pride,
the mother's warm affection, the wife's earnest prayer, the
fairmaiden's love and longing — all came to mind and memory,
as he stood in the front of the battle, or lay on his cot of
suffering, and, while his heart softened into tenderness, it
strengthened into heroism. He did the duty and bore the
soldiers' and sailors' monument. 31
pain the better, because of this blessed recollection and this
upward looking faith. As he died, beautiful visions of green
fields and spreading trees and glorious mountain-peaks, the
broad prairie, the waving grain, the village home, passed
before him. Soft eyes looked into his own from out the
gathering darkness, and gentle voices whispered to his
heart. No roar of cannon now, no clash of steel, but only
the prayers he had learned at his mother's knee, and the
memories of tender vows! Was it hard thus to die? The
brave youth only regretted, that he had but one life to give
to his country.*
In judging of the character of our patriotism, we must not
forget the influence of this home -life, to which I have just
alluded, nor must we pass over in silence the great part
which woman acted in the war. To the lessons of obedi-
ence and faithfulness she had taught in earlier years, to the
actual labor she performed at home and in the hospital, to
the enthusiasm and earnest interest she inspired, to the
prayers she uttered, to the s;iintly trust, the sublime pa-
tience she exhibited — even unconsciously to herself — w^e
are indebted more than we know. Without the woman's
help, man could have done but little. Without the spirit of
the woman's bravery, man could have fought his battles with
but slight success. There were invisible reenforcements
always marching to the field. There were supplies or cour-
age and faith ahvays going forward. The homes of the peo-
ple were never exhausted, and out of them flowed the never-
failing streams which refreshed the nation's life. I re-
member now the earnest word of a poor, honest, humble wo-

man, whicli may well illustrate the spirit of our loyal home-
life. She lived in some little country town in Massachusetts,
and had come down to the hospital at Portsmouth Grove to
see her son, who had been treated there, and was about re-
turning to the army in the field. I happened to witness
their parting as she went on board the boat that was to bring
her up to the city. He was a bright, manly-looking youth
— a private soldier. She kissed him, took his hand in hers,
and said, ''John, good bye, I may never see you again;
but mind this, John, be sure and do your duty straight up
to the handle !" "I will, mother," said he, in a cheery,
yet somewhat tearful way — and so they separated. There
was no doubt that he would ! In talking with her while
coming up the bay, I found that she belonged to that sturdy
yeoman class of our people, from among whom the majority
of our rank and file had been recruited — a thoroughly loyal
American woman, who was willing to sacrifice much, and to
endure much poverty and hard labor, if necessary. Three of
her sons were already in the army, and the strain upon her
was somewhat hard. But her brave heart never gave up, as
though her own happiness and life were of little value in the
time of the nation's necessity. It is a good illustration
of the force that was in reserve, constantly sending forward
its supports. The poor woman's phrase might have been
more elegantly rendered, but the spirit and sentiment were
there. Were they not everywhere, pervading the hearts of
all our loyal women ? I believe that the force, which these
supplied, contributed very largely to the national success.
Out of such sweet and tender life came forth an invincible

minds, not fully appreciating the capabilities of the Ameri-
can character, inquired whether these men had not been
unfitted, by their military experience, for the occupations of
civil life. The result proved the groundlessness of any fear
or doubt of this kind. As the manner in which the people
met the emergencies of the war was exceptional, so was the
return of the soldiers to their social duties quite beyond the
ordinary course. Silently and swiftly w^ere they merged,
Avith but few exceptions, into the great mass of our popula-
tion. The public order felt no shock, the social state no
disturbance. Those who had been conspicuous in the public
eye, acting the great drama, of which all the world w^as a
spectator, were content to retire to the obscurity of private
life. No interests suffered. No rights wxre violated. On
the contrary, the public welfare was promoted by the in-
crease of productive labor. The country, already recover-
ing from the blow she had received, has started forward on
a course of prosperity, the end of which is beyond all our
dreams of greatness. These men, instead of being demor-
alized by the war, seemed to have been touched by the spirit
of a new consecration, as though the awful face of Duty
had been unveiled before them, and their souls had been
thrilled by her never-to-be-forgotten voice.
To deepen and strengthen the character — that Avas the re-
sult. And with such added strength and depth, the com-
munity could gratefully receive into its bosom the returning
brave. As they marched back with firm step and bronzed
faces, in clothing worn and defaced, bearing high the old
flag, whose rags were more glorious than gilded banners, and
Avhose faded inscriptions told of bloody fields, we welcomed
them with a joy which was sometimes too deep for words.
We looked along their ranks, and saw the vacant [)laccs
34 DEDICATION OF THE
which the storm of battle had made. Our eyes were wet
with tears that came unbidden. Our heads were bowed in
submission to that will which had ordered the event. In our
hearts we made the vow that they who had fallen should never
lack an honorable memorial ; that their wounded and disa-
bled comrades should never ask for sympathy and aid in vain ;
that their widows and orphans should never know want ;
that the cause for which they died should never be deserted
or betrayed ; and that we ourselves, taking new courage and
faith from their example, would make the land we loved
more worthy of so loyal a service and so costly a sacrifice.
That vow is registered in Heaven and on the nation's heart,
and by God's help it shall be faithfully kept.
While paying our honor to the dead, we would not forget
the living veterans, who have "no cause to blush that they
survive the battle." The nation owes its life to the exer-
tions of these men — both the wounded and unscathed — and
cannot well discharge the debt. So, to-day, I would plead
in their behalf — not for alms, not for the charity that de-
prives one of self-respect, not for the gifts which are be-
stowed upon the disabled man, who wails forth his melan-
choly music from the curbstone of the street, but — for pub-
lic employment, that they may, in the spirit of independent
citizens, serve the country in peace as they did in war. So
I urge, that whenever the country has any work to perform,
which they are capable of doing, or any office of honor or
emolument which they are fitted to fill, their claims should
be remembered first of all. The Republic has not been whol-
ly ungrateful in the past to those who have imperilled life
and limb for her sake. The future shall show, that the
American people have good memory for all faithful and pat-
soldiers' and sailors' monument. 35
What now has come from all this ? What has the country
purchased with all these labors, strifes, sacrifices and griefs?
Out of the terrible contest emerge two great ideas — Nation-
ality and Free Citizenship. We are a compacted, united
nation, a body politic, vital in every part. No one state has
the headship. All are equal. Each is autonomous. But
all are joined by an irrefragable bond of union. The Dec-
laration of Independence now reaches its logical conclusion.
The Constitution now receives its right interpretation. Its
magnificent preamble — pregnant with the life of centuries —
we can now read, without hesitation and without reserve :
"We, the people of these United States, in order to form a
more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tran-
quility, provide for the common defence, promote the general
welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and
our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution of
the United States of America." We now can com.pre-
hend what it is to be a nation and a power in the earth.
The hope of the fathers is nearing its fruition. Their prom-
ise and prophecy to mankind is having its fulfilment.
One result, as encouraging to national virtue, as it is grat-
ifying to national pride, is the position our success has given
us among the nations of the world. The Union is now in
no danger of being misunderstood. Success clears the eye
of many a film, the mind of many a prejudice. If, as Jef-
ferson said, the cause of the struggling colonies for indepen-
dence was the cause of human nature, we can well say now,
that the preservation of the Republic is a gain to human civ-
ilization everywhere. In the time of our extremity, foreign
powers mistrusted our ability. In the time of our success
they are eager to profess their confidence. No more signifi-
cant act has been performed within the present century, than

England have laid the world under obligations of gratitude,
as they have shown, that two great nations with — as some
have thought — abundant reasons for war, can find still more
abundant reasons for peace, and can submit disputed ques-
tions of the highest importance to the tribunal of impartial
arbitration. While others have wasted their strength by vin-
dictive war, clutching at each other's throat to gratify long-
cherished enmity, and laying up large stores for a future of
bitterest revenge, these two have gained the unwonted glo-
ry of proving, that national honor can consist with interna-
tional amity. Fortunate opportunity for us to be thus in-
strumental in promoting the welfare of humanity, and to
preach this new gospel of peace in the good old mother-
tongue ! But the opportunity came from our success.
It is not simply as a nation, but it is as a nation of free
men, that we stand in our place to-day. How short a time
ago it was that the institution of slavery, cruel, aggressive,
defiant, ruled the land ! So powerful it seemed, that good
men mourned and wise men feared, when they contemplated
the future of the Republic. It was so strong in its founda-
tions, so well-supported, so fully fortified in public opinion,
so confident in itself, that the most clear-sighted could scarce-
ly discern a ray of hope for its extinction. The most san-
guine of its opponents only ventured to believe, that its fur-
ther extension could be stayed. But Divine Providence had
decreed better things for us. In the fire of the war the
chains of the bondman were melted. Baptized with blood,
the slave arose from his degradation a free citizen of the Re-
soldiers' and sailors' monument. 37
public. It would have staggered credulity to be told, that a
result like that could be accomplished in half a century.
Behold, it required scarcely two years of strife to speak the
word of emancipation, butf four years to make the word a
fact, and less than a decade to fix it forever in the funda-
mental national law ! We fought the battle better than we
knew. The irresistible logic of events solved the problem.
Led by a power higher than ourselves, we marched on to
victories greater than we dreamed. Our eyes were blessed
with the vision of a glory which others had long desired to
see, but died without the sight. A grand imperial Union
arose with its zeal of free citizenship — without distinction
race, color, or previous condition of servitude — and took its
place unchallenged among the foremost powers of time. The
war gave us the opportunity of proving that a free citizen
is his country's best defender. Let peace enable us to prove,
that freedom of citizenship is the best element of a country's
enduring greatness. Let the nations be taught that the
American system of government — ''of the people, by the
people, for the people" — is the most equitable 'among men ;
that that empire is the best and the greatest, which has lib-
erty for the corner-stone of its foundations, and equal jus-
tice between man and man, for the binding cement of its walls.
What mighty results hath God wrought through the instrumen-
tality of these humble, faithful men and women ! We have
come to our triumph through great tribulation. But what a
triumph it is, and what transcendent possibilities for man-
kind are within it !
It is a grateful thought, to-day, that in these events, im-
portant to ourselves and to the interests of civilization every-
where the State of Rhode Island has borne a conspicuous
part. Her troops were among the earliest in the field and

among the last to leave it, having won a name for good dis-
cipline, for bravery, for endurance, for steady faithfulness in
all positions, second to none. We would also gratefully re-
call the honorable services of those Rhode Island men, of dif-
ferent rank, — officers, soldiers, sailors — in the regiments of
other states, in the regular army, navy and marine corps,
wdiose gallantry and self devotion reflected glory on their
state. All along the line, fi'om the time that Burnside led
the First Rhode Island to Washington, and Ives offered him-
self and his yacht to the government, to the firing of the
last gun of the war, the men of Rhode Island made an illus-
trious record for us and for themselves. They served w^ith
Burnside, at Roanoke, Newbern, Fort Macon, South Moun-
tain, and Knoxville ; with Sherman, Hunter, Mitchell, and
Gilmore at Port Royal, Pulaski, James Island and the siege
of Charleston ; with Butler and Banks at New Orleans ;
with McClellan at Yorktown, before Richmond and at Antie-
tam ; with Meade at Gettysburg ; with Thomas at Nash-
ville ; with Sheridan in the Shenandoah Valley ; with Grant
at Yicksburg and in the long Virginia campaigns of 1864-G5,
which closed the war. Manassas, the Peninsula, Chantilly,
Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville witnessed their unavail-
ing valor. Their blood mingled with the waters of the Gulf
of Mexico. The murderous fires of the Mississippi Passes
lighted their path to victory under Farragut. The daring
assault of Fort Fisher added to their renown. Goldsborough
in Pamlico and Albermarle Sounds ; Dupont at Hilton Head,
and Dahlgren in Charleston harbor, saw and commended
their bravery. What McDowell said on the eve of the first
battle of Bull Run : "I rely on the Rhode Island brigade,''
has been confirmed upon a hundred fields. The State which
gave a Greene and a Hopkins to the Revolution, and a Perry

to the war of 1812, has not forgotten her ancient renown,
and now stands among her sisters, wearing the bays which
her sons have placed upon her brow. The principles which
were the inspiration of her early life, have been the strength
of her latter days. It is with a just and reasonable pride,
that every citizen, from the humblest to the highest, can read
the story, and feel that he can rightly share her fame. The
people of our State, always remembering that they were
Americans as Avell as Rhode Islanders,' have given, indeed, a
happy illustration of the truth, that Republican institutions,
administered by an intelligent and virtuous democracy, can
develope a patriotism, glorious in character, splendid in
achievement, such as the world has rarely seen. No commu-
nity has been more jealous of individual liberty and the rights
of the State. No community has been more united in sup-
port of every measure adopted for the common defence. No
community has given better and brighter evidence of devo-
tion to the common good. The experience through which we
passed, was sad, but we have been chastened for our profit.
The test was searching, but we triumphantly sustained it.
Now we are convinced, that what we have secured is worth
all that it has cost. The Union stands, and it stands for
So we feel that these men have not died in vain. As those
who have passed through the conflict, would refuse to yield
a particle of that dear bought experience, so they who
"bowed their noble souls to death," forbid us to believe that
they have suffered thus for naught. Could a voice come
down from those serene heights where souls of heroes dwell,
it would have no doubtful tone, it would speak no hesitating
word. "We are content," it would say : "To have died for
liberty, to have saved the Republic, by our blood, to have [Kit

our lives in the breach, and thus to have closed the broken
wall, that it might stand forever — this has been our privi-
lege. We have given you a country which you will ever be
proud to call your own. We have established in the western
world an empire where a true freedom may abide in undis-
turbed possession, and peace may reign for the lasting wel-
fare of mankind. We are content. It is for you to main-
tain inviolate the liberties we have won — to preserve the
nation we have saved.',
"Yes, spirits of the heroic dead," we answer, "we here
renew our vows. Here we consecrate ourselves afresh to the
sustenance of the institutions, which your blood has sealed.
Here we solemnly swear to keep unimpaired the inheritance
you have bequeathed to us. By all your tears and toils,
your pains and deaths, your contests and your triumphs, we
pledge ourselves to an equal fidelity and an equal self-devo-
tion. The way you have trod shall not be strange to our
feet. The sufferings you have endured shall not aftright our
hearts. Whenever our dear mother shall call her sons to
serve her, we will hear your voice, honored and glorified
countrymen, cheering us on in the way of duty. Beneath
its impulse and influence no path will be too difficult, no
task too severe, llow can we ever forget, how can we ever
fail to imitate, your constancy and valor !"
Friends : Is there not in all this an exceeding comfort
to the heart bereaved ? The providential law demands sac-
rifice as the condition of the accomplishment of human good.
Human lives must be yielded for the common benefit. Hu-
man hearts must be wrung with grief. The way to the king-
dom lies through much tribulation. So the all- wise, all-
loving God ordains. There can be no palm, no crown, with-
out the cross. But we would look beyond the gloom and

pain of dying, to the glory and the blessedness which death
opens to the spirit. Ah ! those who have died, really live.
To-day, always, they must be near. For hearts that love
each other can know no separation.
Comrades : These were your associates in the ranks of
battle and death. By God's grace you were spared the
stroke that took away their lives. To-day you recall the
scenes in which they were your companions. Not to-day
alone, but forever you will keep their memory green.
Wherever their bodies lie buried, in the soil of the land for
which they died, or in the sea which giveth not up its dead,
their souls have entered into victorious, peaceful life. For
them the din of battle is hushed forever ; for them no toiling
marches, no gnawing hunger, no parching thirst, no lin-
gering sickness, no corroding pain. "The former things
have passed away," and they have entered into rest ! The
monument, which a grateful State has erected to their honor,
passeth into your care. Around this memorial shaft, the
invisible sentinels of your love will keep their constant watch
Fellow Citizens : These exercises approach their termi-
nation. There is but little more to say, and w^hat we say will
soon be forgotten. But the fruits which have grown from
what these men — and such as these — have done and suffered,
Avill be the blessing of all the future of our republic. Our
thoughts and life are already raised to a higher plane by the
inspiration of their example. Into the heavy atmosphere of
our greed and gain comes this breeze of self-sacrificing valor,
and the souls of men are more erect, generous and brave.
Into the easy and self-indulgent habits of life comes this
spirit of cheerful endurance and self-denial, and the hearts of
men are emboldened to refuse the base suggestions of a cow-

ardly policy, and fearlessly face all evil and shameful things.
Into the passions, intrigues, and ambitions of men comes the
memory of this heroic story, to tell what liberty demands of
her defenders, and with what honor she crowns their deeds.
This monument thus teaches the eternal lesson : how tO;
LIVE without reproach, HOW TO DIE WITHOUT FEAR. So, to-
day, we dedicate it to the memory of a virtue that was faith-
ful unto death ; a valor, that accepted every extremity of
danger and sacrifice ; an unselfish patriotism, in man and
woman, that thought no offering too great or precious for the
country's good ; a loyal self-devotion that blessed humanity
far and wide. In lines of beauty, power, and grace has the
artist set before us his completed work. Here it will stand
through the years to come. The storms will beat upon it.
The sunshine will play around it. But neither will the storm
obscure, nor the sunshine brighten its glory. The rapid
stream of travel and traffic will flow ceaselessly by its side.
The generations will come and go. The passing years will
bring their occasions of assembly, when the multitudes will
gather here to find an inspiration for present duty in the
recollections of a heroic past. The tear will start as the
survivor of the conflict reads the inscription that speaks of
some dear comrade. Mothers and fathers, sisters and wives,
will search for the name of son, brother, husband, whom
they gave to the country, as though they were shedding their
own hearts' blood. Children will spell out these lines ;
young men and maidens will whisper to each other the sad,
but glorious tale ; white-haired age, with trembling lip,
will repeat it, and grow young again in the remembrance ;
and those who have been bereaved by the war will glory in
this inheritance of lasting fame. Our own people will be
fjuickened to a grander life, as they contemplate what is here
soldiers' and sailors' monument. 43
recorded. The visitor from foreign lands will learn from it
how American citizens, of every station, can do, and dare,
and die, in obedience to the dictates of patriotic duty. Long
after you and I have passed from the ranks of the living,
and our names have been lost in forgetfulness, will this struc-
ture stand, in its simple beauty, its compact material, itsun-
decaying granite and bronze, to teach all future generations
how Rhode Island brought to the altar of the Republic her
dearest sons !
Solemnly is our monument dedicated now by us. More
solemnly would we, now and always, dedicate ourselves to
the brave and generous patriotism, which it commemorates,
and which shines out with ever increasing lustre from the
names it bears !

Kaise the proud pillar of granite on high,
Graced with all honors that love can impart;
Lift its fair sculptures against the blue sky,
Blazoned and crowned with the trophies of art, —
Crowned with the triumphs of genius and art!
Long may its white column soar to the sky,
Like a lone lily that perfumes the mart,
Lifting its coronal beauty on high.
Sous of Rhode Island, your record shall stand
Graven on tablets of granite and bronze :
Soldiers and sailors beloved of our land.
Darlings and heroes, our brothers and sons, —
Gray-bearded heroes and beautiful sons !
Soldiers and sailors, the flower of our land.
Deep, as on tablets of granite and bronze.
Graved on our hearts shall your bright record stand.
Swell the loud psalm, let the war trumpets sound ;
Fling the old flag to the w^ild Autumn blast ;
High in Yalhallah our comrades are crowned,
Thi-re may we meet when life's conflicts are past, —
Meet in the great Hall of Heroes at last 1
High in Valhallah our comrades are crowned.
Swell with Hosannas the wild Autumn blast !
Let the full chorus of voices resound I

the Rev. Dr. Caswell, President of Brown University ; after
