Twentieth Annua! Reunion 


Fifth Indiana Cavalry Association. 

The Annual Session of the Association convened at the 
court house in Greenfield, Ind., Sept. 16, 1902. at 1:30 p. m. 
with President J. H. McMillen in the chair. 

Comrade L. J. Bruner invoked the Divine blessing. 

The Roll was then called and the decease of comrades 
reported. The President appointed comrades M. T. Morris, 
W. A. W. Dally, and John Hauger for Committe on Me- 
morial Resolutions. 

The President then addressed the meeting as follows: 


Eight years ago we held our Twelfth Reunion in this beauti- 
ful, patriotic city, ami it affords us much pleasure to meet you 
again in this our Annual Twentieth Session. 

This is the third time we have met you. ami it is indeed grati- 
fying to see the interest taken by the citizens and comrades in the 
gathering of the Fifth Indiana Cavalry Association. 

These meetings bring to mind the strife between the North 
and South, when so many Hoosier boys, more than 110,000, wen', 
to the trout to fight and die for their coun'ry's cause, and after 
the cruel war was over, and the South had laid down their arm.. 
more than 24,00(1 of our patriotic Hoosier boys were left on South- 
ern battlefields, to till the known am! unknown -raves of the 
Sunny South. 
"Ttaej- sleep the sleep that know, no waking, tut Resurrection morn." 

Scarcely a family in all this fair State, but that had cause 

for m ■inn;,, lint Indiana may well be proud of lu-

nations, the project was dropped.

the Secretary, and comrade Bruner, who did not receive 
notice of his detail. D. W. Patty, Color Bearer, by 
virtue of being Secretary of the Association, waived his right

mer member of said company act as color bearer, which sug- 
gestion was concurred in by the comrades present.

In those rough days of long ago,

And with its 'chocs seemed t orise 

A vision of the vanished years, 
Till o'er that twilight landscape lies 

The dew of memory's silent tears. 
The vanished years when staFvarl men 

Touched elbows down the long blue line. 
And charged through Southern wood anil glei 

Till earth was drunk with Death's red wine 

Ay, redder wine than e'er was crushed 

From purple grapes, an 1 richer far, 
Was trod from hero hearts, and gushed 

About the crimson feet of War. 
And pangs that time can ne'er assuage 

Were gathered then for all the years, 
On fields new named for history's page. 

Whose christening font o'erilowed with tear: 

The long blue line! how swift it sprang 

In answer to the bugle peal! 
That charging shout! how loud it rang - 

Along the ranks of leveled steel! 
What gallant souls flew up to God! 

What hero hearts amid the fray, 
Poured rich libation on the sod

Who sprang to the first,bugle call? 

Look down the line and see to-night 

Old men whose heads are silver-crowned; 
Too blind to see the musket's sight. 

Too deaf to hear the bugle sound. 
That stooping form is out of line: 

That crutch, my friend, is much too slow; 
That armless sleeve, old comrade mine, 

Could never strike the charging foe. 

That trembling frame could never stand 

The weary march, the tentless bed; 
No foe would fly that nerveless hand. 

And fear would mock that palsied tread. 
The gallant host, which, in its prime. 

Once seemed to spurn the earth they trod. 
Stands shaken by the hand of Time, 

And dwindled to an "awkward squad." 

Yet all these gaps along the line, 

So vacant unto other sight, 
Dear comrades, to your eyes and mine. 

Are filled with shadow forms to-night. 
Here some who sleep beneath the clay 

Of Southern fields stand forth again: 
Here some, who grieved their lives away. 

Shut up in Treason's prison pen. 

In manly beauty, strong and tall; 
And a we call each cherished name 

That grief has blotted with a tear. 
Life seems to stir each spectral frame 

And ghostly voices answer, "Here!'

Each year some comrade takes his pla>

Of her last, dying Boy in Blue.

My heart and mind are with you today and I again renew my 
allegiance to you and promise to stand by you through life,

istering to your wants, and only relinquish my claim on the 


comrades of the Fifth Ind. Cav. when you reach the brink of

But as you know I am a delegate to the National Encamp-

my inclination is to attend our own Association's reunions it 
is duty that I should attend the G. A. R. Encampment be-

Well Patty, I want you and comrades Morris and Dun- 
can to tell the comrades all about the grand turnout of our 
regiment on their last inarch behind the dear, old flag of the 
5th Indiana Cavalry, that we all followed during the long. 
dark night of the Civil War and how we four carried it back 
and restored it to its last resting place, perhaps nevermore to 
pass in grand review. Indeed it was a great privilege to have 
seen with your own eyes the grand stand after the deposit of 
the flags, festooned ;'s it was with the old, battle-scarred flags, 
surrounded by tens of thousands of upturned faces with moist 
eyes, in memory of the loved ones who followed those sacred 

iSSOCl -. ur>: 

colors. That scene has given me new hope in the patr 
of the masses of the people. 

Well dear comrade, I hope this reunion will be 
and numerously attended of any in all the years ; 
there are enough living members of the dear old regiment to 
make it so. Tell all the boys and girls present howdy for me 
(.they never get old in my eyes). And may God in his mercy 
shower youall with his blessings is the prayer of your 
comrade R - P ' F « SEV -

D. W. PATTY, Secretary 5 th Ind. Cavalry Association: 

MY Dear Comrade:- I am in receipt of the invitation 
to attend the reunion of the old 5th Ind. Cav. at Greenf.ield, 
Ind. on the .6-.;, inst. It brings most vividly to my mind 
the last reunion I attended before leaving for California, 
which was held at Greenfield. It makes my heart thrill yet 
to think of the open handed hospitality with which we were 
received by the old comrades of Co. G. and of the good citi- 
zens of Greenfield, 1 have seen nothing to exceed it unless it 


was the marvelous capacity of the boys to stow away the go. id 
things set before them in their baraacks. it would warm up 
my old heart again to meet with you and greet my old com 
rades again. On the appointed day 1 will be with you in 
thought and in spirit and hope you will have the time of your 
lives. Say, Dave, that invitation you got up was not only 
novel but worthy of its author. Remember me most kindly 
to all the visiting comrades and assure them that 1 would be 
most happy to take them by the hands, the distance is too 
great and my business pressing so I will not be with you. 

Very truly, J. K. Haugh.

The report of the 19th Annual Reunion at hand, I am 
always glad to hear of the old boys meeting and having a 
good time, I am too old to try to meet with you any more. 
On the 1st of May 1S64 at Camp Nelson my horse fell with 
me and injured my back, which has troubled me ever since. 
Am drawing a pension for wounds received at Henderson's 
Mills, Oct. 11, 1863. Wishing you al! many more happy re- 
unions I am faithfully yours, 

A. J. Johnson, Co. F. 
Oak Valley, Kan., Sept. 10, 1902.

Dear OiMk-Mir.:— The 19th Annual Report of 01 
imental Association received, please accept my thanks. It 
would give me great pleasure to meet with you om 
bill 1 am afraid it will never be. I am with you in spirit 
however if I cannot be in person. With greetings to all 
I am yours, 

H. C. Veach, Co. C. 
Zurich, Kan., Sept. 8, 1902. 

Dear Oi.n Comrades: — It would be a great pleasure to 
meet with you and talk over the battles, skirmishes and scouts 
through which we were engaged together and alas the months 
that we spent in those horrid prison pens of the South, which 
ruined the health and made life so unpleasant for so many of 
our brave comrades. Please excuse me from answering at 
roll call on the 1 6th inst. My health is poor and the dis- 
tance so great, being one thousand miles, makes it impossible 
to be there. I still hope to meet you in reunion again and 
sit around the camp fire and call to mind the stirring scenes 
and incidents of the days of yore. Please send me report. 
Regards to all. C. H. Graham, Co. F. 

Paris, France, October 25. 1902. 
Mr. David Patty, Carmel, Indiana. 

Dear Sir and Comrade:— I did not receive your letter 
in time to answer before the reunion. I cabled you that day. 
which 1 hope you received, and that the reunion was a great 
success. It gives me pleasure to enclose herewith S5.00 for 
the expense fund. Hoping I may soon receive the annual re- 
port, and with best wishes, I am 

Yours in V. C. and 1...

Pear Comrades. — We forward you this Report of our 
Twentieth Annual Reunion, hoping that you will pardon the 
delay in getting it out, which delay has been owing to the 
poor health of the Secretary, who has been ill the greater 
portion of the winter. Our next meeting will be held in the 
city of Portland, Ind., October 14 and 15, 1903. your attend- 
ance is. earnestly requested. We fully expect Col. Butler to 
be with us on the occasion. Comrade Lou Kruner writes 
that the citizens of Portland are greatly pleased to have us 
meet there this year and assures free entertainment to all 
members of the Association who may attend; that more per- 
sons have asked to entertain comrades than there will be 
comrades present. 

We again call your attention to our Roster which contains 
a number of names of comrades without P. O. address. 
There are doubtless other names on the Roster of comrades 
who are deceased as we do not hear from them. Now com- 
rades we again urge you to carefully go over the rolls and 
where there is a mistake in spelling, name or P. O. address 
omitted, or the comrade deceased, please notify the Secretary 
giving the necessary correction. 

Comrade, as a member of the Association, you are entitled 
to a copy of this Report which is sent to all the members, 
and as the cost of getting up and mailing these Reports, notify- 
ing the comrades of the time of meeting, together with other 
incidental expenses, costs the Association about $100 per 
year, and these expenses are borne by a comparatively few 
members, and as the reports are for all the members of the 


Association anil are surely interesting to all the comrades 
we do deem it right to call on yon for a small contributioi 
from 20c to Si.oo as you may feci able. If, however, vol 
were present at the last Reunion and contributed or done si 
by letter, you are not asked for anything. If you have no 
attended the recent meetings or written the Secretary, plea- 
acknowledge the receipt of the Report so that we may kno\ 
that we have your correct address. 

Hoping to meet you at Portland next October, we are 
Yours in F. L. C. 
1). \V. Patty, Secretary. W. \V. Am.i si, President
