HUTCHINSON DAILY NEWS, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 8, 1892. COCKEREL'S LETTER. He Spends a Day on the Famouo Field of Gettysburg. Memorials or the Fight Which Ailorn It —KemlnUceDcea of Thrilling Scenes and Rrporlonoes I' the; Imminent Deadly Jlreaoh. [OOrYRlOttT, 1895.) A journey to the battlefield of Gettysburg is one that every patriotic American should make. Tho death grapple between thn armies of tho union and the confederacy which took place in and around this quiet, sleepy old town of Gettysburg twenty-nine years ago ranks as the one great battlo of modern times, and it Is bound to liyo in history with Marathon, Illenheim and Waterloo. It was my pleasure to visit Gettysburg recently with a party of New York and Philadelphia newspaper workers, guests of tho Beading railway, which, in addition to its other great enterprises, is malting n specialty of its connection with Gettysburg and its famous Held. There is no prettier spot on this continent than Gettysburg and its surroundings. Tho beautiful, undulating character of the valley in which the town lies, its swelling ridges covered with emerald verdure and the •whole set in by backgrounds of blue mountain ridges make it a picture full of sweetness and repose. Hcrc.'butfor the incursions from visitors from the outer world, one might find tho reposo of an Auburn or the happy valley of Ra&sclas. Thanks to the patriotism of tho survivors of the battle and the munificence of some of the northern states, tho Gettysburg battlefield to-day is a magnificent display of monumental art. YVe have no such heroic sculpture in this country, and the stories which here ara told in gTanite, marble and bronze from one end of this field to the other nro such as to inspire the loftiest emotions. With its monuments recounting tho deeds of brigades, regiments and squadrons the story of the great struggle is told in language whicli needs scarcely any addition, and the lesson promulgated is one which every youth' in the land should enjoy. Some of these monuments are exquisite, both in design and execution, and tho battlefield is now really a great outdoor exhibition of art—a veritable national museum. I had made a hasty visit to Gettysburg's field a couple of years ago and, having read pretty much everything that had been written on the subject of the battlo, I was pretty familiar with the stories of the guides. We hod with us on this occasion Col. John B. Bachelder, tho government historian, who has been visiting the field annually for more than twenty years and who has enjoyed the society of thousands of officers of both armies who met on this spot The old gentleman means to write, ono of these days, a history of this battle, but he is suffering now from an excess of information and is so burdened with caution that I am afraid the book, like the mathematical work which the poor schoolmaster in Longfellow's story of Kavanogh contemplated writing for so many years, •will never bo written. Every time he visits Gettysburg the old colonel obtains a new bit of information which requires the overhauling and revising of his previous reports. In passing over the field the other day with Minnigh, the oratorical guide, the colonel felt called upon several times to correct statements which have long been historical through constant repetition. Col. Uacheldcr has caused to be set up on Seminary ridge, near the point where Piekett 'B famous and glorious charge ended in death and dismay, a memorial which is to celebrate tho "High Water Mark of tho Rebellion." It is in the form of n granite pedestal with an enonnous bronze book lying open upon it, upon which, without adjectives, are recorded the deeds performed there and with them tho names 6f the organizations of both armies which contended there. Tho Gettysburg Memorial association has made and graded twenty miles of carriage roads over the battlefield, and the monuments thus far set up represent an investment of over a million of dollars. When these roads are properly macadamized the battlefield will be a magnificent parlt, and when the confederates have marked their positions the vast field will bo' a silent history speaking to the ages. Until this recent visit 1 had, along with a good many other people, fancied that the first day's fighting around Gettysburg was little more than heavy skirmishing mingled with considerable running and a complete rout in the end for the federal forces. As a matter of fact, there was no better fighting done at Gettysburg than that of Buford's cavalry and the First corps which encountered the advance of Gen. Lee's main army ou the Chambersbuvg pike on the first of July. The prolongation of that day's struggle made it possible for Gen. Meade to bring up 1 UB dotachod corps and place them where they could he hammered into an impregnable position on Seminary ridge with the flanks protected by the Round Top, Cemetery hill and Culp's MIL When Gen. Buford, at the heud of his two cavalry brigades, came thundering into Gettysburg on the lost day of Juno ho learned of tho eastward movement of Gen. Leo's forces from Cliambersburg. Gen. Early had passed through Gettysburg moving eastward some days before, and had taken up his position at York. Swell with a largu force was at Carlisle on the north, threatening ilarrisburg with several divisions. When, on ttie Morning of tho first, Buford's cavalrymen met the advance of Leo on the Coshtown pike, his theory must have been that be was only to meet an advancing division or two, and it must have been his belief that by holding them in check until Reynolds caine up with his first corps the confederates would be defeated and turned back. Whatever his theory, ho started* in with n tremendous display of energy and pluck and for several hours he must havo mystified the fiery confederates with tho vigor of his dofeiiBO. When Rey nolds with his infantry reached the field it was to meet a mighty outpouring of tho very flower of tho confederate army. It was little known then that Lee had issued on order to his detached wings to concentrate at Gettysburg, and, while Donblcday was making his heroic fight on the west of the town and Howard's Eleventh corps were forming on tho north, down came tho hordes of Ewell from Carlisle and westward marched tho legions of Early froni York; so that by four o'clock on that dread afternoon a mere segment of tho army of the Potomac was grappling In deadly embrace with almost the moss of Lee's army of 00,000 men. All save Pickett's division of D ,000 men, which had been left at Chambersbujg, were brought to Gettysburg on the first day. It is little wonder that theso battered and bruised men of the First and Eleventh corps were forced to retreat. But the country, can never know what it owes to that excellent soldier, Gen. Hancock, who, galloping up from Monde'B headquarters twenty miles away, met the routed forces rallying upon their reserves on Cemetery hill and forced them to mako a stand. The desperate resistance on Culp's hill and Cemetery hill that awful evening chocked tho onrdlling tide of tho confederacy, and when tho morning sun arose Seminary rldgo and its flanks were filled with tho worn and haggard but undismayed veterans of tho army of the Potomac. That mado victory for our army at Gettysburg, and that victory sealed the fate of the confederacy. A visitor to this battlefield, finding himself standing at the point knonm as the "Bloody Angle," against which Pickett's great charge was mado, and where Gen. Armistcad fell inside the union lines, waving his hat upon his sword, is surprised to note that Seminary ridge just here '.is not a ridge at all, viewed from the front I hod always supposed until my first visit to the field that Pickett's doomed 4,900 men not only marched across an open plain to the assault, but that they had been compelled to climb the rocky sides of a most rugged natural defense. To tell tho truth that charge was delivered ooross a comparatively level plain against troops who had scarcely any advantage in the matter of ground, barring the trivial Btono wall which fringed the front. Looking at the field from this standpoint anyone can understand how Gen. Longstreet might well have opposed Lee's determination to assault the federal center, and can imagine how sick liiB heart must have been when he saw those three brigades of Virginians marching to certain death and destruction. But Lee had fought two detached corps of the army of the Potomac on the 1st, and had failed to crush them; he had assaulted desperately both flanks on the 2nd and had failed, and on tho 3rd there was left for him only the Napoleonic tactics of breaking the center. That awful charge would never have been made, I presume, if Leo had not believed that his terrible two hours' cannonade had silenced the batteries along the federal front. Hod it been supported as it should have been, it might, perhaps, have succeeded, but all that was vital and forceful In Leo's armies marched with Pickett in that fateful charge. Col. Prccmantlo, the English officer of the guards who had accompanied Lee in his invasion of Virginia, sat on the fence on Seminary ridge when Pickett came down tho slope and moved against the federal center with the precision of parade, and when the thin and broken ranks had almost reachedthe famous "Bloody Angle" he swung his cap in the air and shouted: "It will succeed; it is the grandest charge the world ever sawl" But Gen. Longstreet says that he knew that the effort had failed; first, because no body of men on earth could stand such a storm of leaden and iron hail as Pickett's men endured, and, second, because there was absolutely no support on flank or in rear for the brave men who had been blindly sent to destruction. There is ono sad and pathetic picture of this battle which has always touched me, but which the field guides seem to have overlooked. On the last days' battle, when Gen. Leo was preparing to hurl himself against tho federal center, cavalry charge was made on his right wing lying around the Round Tops and the Devil's Den, which for absolute futility, fatality and absurdity has not been equaled since the famous six hundred rode against the batteries of Balaklava. Custer's cavalry was hovering on the extreme loft when it entered into tho head of Gen. Farnsworth to make diversion by charging headlong into the midst of tho confederate troops at that time not actively engaged. Ho had just been promoted to a brigadier-generalship a few days before, and had borrowed a pair of general's shoulder straps from one of his brother officers. These ho hud stitched upon a linen coat, and, proud of himself and his opportunity, ho was anxious to put his finger marss upon the great battle. Sword in hand he galloped down with Ids little body of brave followers upon tho desperate Texans and Alahamians of Hood's division. He was treated to terrible infantry fire and at last two batteries opened upon him with grape and canister. Ho rode around in a circle, and as ho rode the guns of the batteries were turned upon him until seemed as if not ono of this foolhardy band would return alive. Gen. Farnsworth was mortally wounded, and his command was absolutely cut to pieces. CoL Oates, of the Fifteenth Alabama, told mo some time ago that he was satisfied that Farnsworth shot himself with his own pistol when he found that ho was seriously wounded, lest he should be mado a prisoner. He said that one of his Alabama soldiers came to him on tho Hold with a pair of shoulder straps which he said had cut. from the coat of a Yankee major, who, Ue said, had just been killed. Col. Oates recognized tho insignia of the brigadier general, and know by tho color that a cavalry officer had been Blalu. He was taken to where Gen Furnsworth's body was lying, and upon examining some papers was able to identify him. lie said that Furnsvvorth hud several wounds upon his body, any one of which might have proved fatal, and that the shot in his head had ovi- J dently been sclf-lnflieted. Ue this as It may, no braver nor nobler officer ever laid down his life on tho battlefield than this gallant Bon of Illinois. That his ambitious charge was ill advised uo one doubts, for even in that day mounted cavalrymcn"with sabers had no more chance at close quarters with infnntry and artillery than at this timo—which is absolutely nil. Ono of tho most interesting citizens of Gettysburg that I met during my visit was Mr. D. McConaughy, a venerable lawyer, who was born in tho heart of the town ond who has lived there every day of his life. He is now burgess, an office equivalent to that of mayor. He makes It his business to look after visitors to tho battlefield, and his courtesy and graeiousness is very much appreciated. I had from hira a number of interesting stories in relation to tho great contest. Mr. McConaughy was one of the first burghers of Gettysburg to recognize tho importance of tho battlefield from a commercial standpoint, and he organized tho movement which resulted in the purchaso of Little. Round Top within a week or two after the battle. • When Gen. Buford first reached Gettysburg Mr. McConaughy met him and gave him a lot of valuablo information touching tho movements of Leo's army to the west of tho town. This information had been brought to him by young men of the neighl>orhood who had been acting as voluntary scouts and messengers. The old gentleman was in Gettysburg town during the entire three days' battlo, a part of the time occupying a good point of observation on the roof of his own house. He hod quite an experience with tho officers and men of Lee's army, who occupied the town during the three days' fighting. His theory is that Gettysburg would have been reduced to ashes but for the fact that the courthouse, all the churches and nearly all the houses in the town were filled with confederate wounded. Ho had a somewhat unpleasant experience with Gen. Early, and he related to me a story about Gen. John B. Gordon, of Georgia, which seemed almost incomprehensible. He said that after the fighting of tho first day Gen. GordoD delivered In the public square of the town a fiery harangue to a number of frightened Gettysburgers, during which he indulged in most awful threats against everything and everybody connected with tho union cause. He announced that it was the intention of Lee's armies to defeat the army of the Potomac, to march on Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington, and so great was his enthusiasm and so strong his belief, that he almost converted the Gettysburgers to his way of thinking. Gen. Gordon to-day Is one of the most loyal and conservative. men of tho Bouth. He was a splendid fighter during tho war. It is possible that his fiery temper led him away at Gettysburg. I doubt that he would care to see that speech in print now, for, since tho oonstfuA performances of the French leaders at Agineourt, there has been nothing quite so ridiculous as a general officer on a battlefield talking of tho great deeds about to be performed. A visitor to Gettysburg will, of course, find there an exhaustless stock of relics. This fact amused very much Mr. J. M. Bailey, the quaint humorist of the Danbury News, who accompanied us on this excursion, and who was a participant In the fighting nearly thirty years ago. Bailey insists that the business of man ufacturing and planting relics on the battlefield is one of the established occupations of Gettysburg, and he cannot be made to believe otherwise. The citizens aU declare that the relies are growing scarce and the prices, therefore, are steadily advancing. Aside from the regular collectors who havo shops in the town, ono meets at every point upon the field and In the streets little children with pitiful collections of buUete and bits of shells, vtjhich they offer for sale. Good-natured visitors patronize them, more, I think, because of their necessitous appearance than because of any desire to possess relics. I gave one freckled-faced aenemic littlo a chap 75 cents for the butt end of a rusty old bayonet. The price was somewhat out of proportion, but it enabled somebody to indulge in the witticism that this was one of the most remarkable bayonet charges that tho field had lenown. While we were in Gettysburg somebody unearthed the skeletons of a horse and a man. The horse had been thrown into a trench with all his accoutrements, and the only thing which was in a fair state of preservation was the saddle and buttons of the soldier. The latter indicated that the skeleton was that of a southern soldier. I must reiterate that a visit to Gettysburg is well worth the time. Even people who were born since the war, and who have read little about it and caro less, are absolutely entranced when once they come In contact with a record of the momentous deeds done there and which have now mode it a hallowed Mecca for every true American, regardless of section or prejudice. The impressions one oarries away from there are lasting; the lessons valuable. A vividness and value would be additionally imported to both if Gettysburg had a good modern hotel. This tho quaint old town needs, and the battlefield itself should be ornamented with deserving statues of Oon. Meade, Hancock and Buford. JOHN A. COCKEMLL. Not Consoling. The Vicomto de Segur once had occasion to reflect on the failure of on attempt at consolation made without tact. Many persons have made the same observation, but the vicomto's experience was, in its way, memorable. He prided himself on his reputation for wit, and was indignant when he heard that M. de Vaines had spoken slightingly of it Upon meeting htm the vicomte said: "M. de Vaines, I hear that in a house where other persons were so kind as to consider me witty, you declared that I was not so. Is this true?" "Oh, uot a word of truth In It, my dear Do Segur," was the cheerful reply. "No Indeed, I have never been anywhere I where TRUTH STRANGER THAN "fclCTIOlf.
