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-
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
"Ttaej- sleep the sleep that know, no waking, tut Resurrection morn."

notice of his detail. D. W. Patty, Color Bearer, by

mer member of said company act as color bearer, which sug-

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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
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
40 KIKTH INIUANA CAVAI.KV ASSOCIATION.
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.
