PAGE SIX HOPE STAB, ttOPE, ARKANSAS Wednesday, September 21, Gala Reunion and ID-Day Celebration Mark 75th Anniversary of Battle of Chickamauga I I WI By NEA Service CHATTANOOGA, Tenn.,—Along the Chickamauga. on the foggy Sunday morning of Sept. 16, 1863, gray and blue-clad men fought desperately with long slim bayonets and clubbed rifles. On the morning of the same day this year, their descendents, now a united people, began a 10-day celebration to honor the men who fought destxirately over the same ground 75 years before. On Sept. 21, President Roosevelt himself will join the celebration by speaking and reviewing a military contingent. Again, as at Gettsburg earlier in the year, veterans of the Blue and Gray will join hands in a last battlefield reunion while men of the regular army re-enact the battle in which many of them fought. A pageant and historical spectacle. "Drums of Dixie," in which 2000 are taking part, will recall each night the events commemorated, and fireworks will harmlessly suggest the more deadly artillery of '63. Governors There, Too The 10-day celebration will commemorate not only "The Great Battle of- the West," but five occasions in all: the 100th anniversary of peace with the Cherokee Nation; the 100th anniversary of Chattanooga; the 75th anniversary of the three closely connected battles of the Chattanooga campaign of '63 Chicamauga. Lookout Mountain, and Missionary Ridge. . Congress, the state of Tennesee. the city of Chattanooga, and Hamilton county all the united in .providing Beside the participation of President j Hooscvelt, Governors. Bibb Graves of Alabama, and Ed Rivers of Georgia wil take part, and many prominent men and womtn from all parts of the south arc to act as hosts. Half Million People Expected More than 5000 troops, federal and national guard from the three states in the conjunction of which the Chattanooga campaign was fought, will take part in the re-enactment of the battles, and in reviews and other military events. Regattas, horse shows, an air show, amummers' parade, and other varied events will fill each clay's program from the opening of the celebration with the Cotton Ball Sept. 16, to the solemn memorial and patriotoc ralley which close the proceedings on Sunday, Sept. 25. Half million people arc expected to attend. "Wooden Nickles" Souvenirs Atmosphere of the Old South is to be recreated at the opening ball, during which'girls of the New South grabed in ruffles and hooped-skirts wfll make thtir curtsies to the King and Queen of the ball, whose indentity in occordance with custom, will no be related until the night of the affair Eagerly sought already are the "wooden nickles" which have been issued as souvenirs of the celebration similar to paper money, but printei on thin wooden veneer strips.
