Amid the Interchange of fraternal greetings
between the survivors of the Army of tlio
Cumberland and their former foes upon tlio
battlefield , and while union generals ami the
people's president united at the burial , the
common urlulof thesu magnanimous survi
vors and mourning cltlruns found expression
In a determination to erect this
tribute to Ameilcan greatness ; and thus
to-day In Its symmetry and beauty , It presents
tbo sign of animosities forzottcn , an emblem
of brotherhood redeemed and a token of a
nation restored. Monuments and statues

tills day fuitli there shall stand
at our seat ol government the statue
of a distinguished cltl/en , who In
his life and services combined all these

he tearless search and discovery oftheor-
