XXVIII—NO. 50' LEE'S FIEHTEBS 10 MEET III AT Thinning Gray Ranks to Gather at the First Confederate Capital. BY (HIV HAMILTON (United Press Staff Correspondent) ATLANTA, Oa.. May 22. (UP) — Veterans of 'the Confederate army, all of them Hearing the end of life, are looking forward with tile fame old eagerness this .year lo joining comrades at their annual Southern reunion. They have planned for Ihe same Irip, failh- fully. every year since the custom was bpjjun in the nineties, and all of them plan to attend the gathering until the time comes to join their fellow soldiers who are dead. The tri|i across the Southern states will be hard on thc 2.500 veterans who will assemble In Montgomery. Ala., on June 'J of tliis year. But many of the old soldiers have said. "We would rather die at a . reunion than anywhere else in the world." Frequently they get. their wish. Colorful Chiefs Gone There are no more of the colorful leaders of the Confederacy al Ihe gatherings, and at the annual muster not a general answers the roll call. There are a few colonels. a few majors and caplains. The rest are men who Joined the gray ranks as boys during the last days of Ihc Civil War. Men older at the time have already passed away, for the war was fought two-thirds of a century ago. , The reunion this year will be in the old capitol of the Confedsracy where Jefferson Davis and a cabinet of Southern leaders sat and di- recled the Confcdcrat? States' fight lor existence. Thc men who fought from laiil to 1BG5 for secession from the Union will visit the historic old capitol where thr- Confederale Congress 'held its deliberations. They will see Ihe old home which served as the White House of the Southern nation. Quarters for them will be provided in Sidney Lanier High School, where the desks-of students will be supplanted by rows of army cots. Last year the old men slept under cam'ts, -In- urmy fashion", o.v -i'At- shores of the Gulf of Mexico at Bi'.oxi. As usual the Sons of Confederate Veterans, ladies' Memorial Association, aand other patriotic organizations will join in caring for the old soldiers, helping them have a good time. Government military units will take part in the celebration, and even the United States army military band will be present to' play for soldiers who once fought against the army ol the United States. To Hold Ball There will be addresses and business sessions in Ihe mornings and afternoons, as usual. In the evenings the veterans will hold a ball, the Sons of Confederates another, and all organizations will join in merriment. Musicians will play the old tunes to which thc men marched off behind Lee in 1861. "The Bonnie Blue Flag" will be' heard again. So will "The Girl I Left Be- hlr.d Me." and "Dlx*' the martial lune which has acquired a spiritual value in the South. At those balls' old legs which once tramped in the columns of Jackson, and straddled S[H?eay cavalry horses, will swing blithely again to old-time jigs. Although state organl?atlons had held previous reunions. Ihe first Southern gathering lo be held by thc United Confederate Veterans occurred in the early nineties. As many as twelve or fifteen thousand of the "boys in gray," together with the most beautiful belles of Dixie used to attend. Now the ranks arc thinning more and more rapidly Veterans of the Civil War who join Bayly in the celebralions of one year are more than likely to have heard laps before another is over Governor B. M. Miller will welcome them to Montgomery this year. There has been talk of doing away with reunions now because of the Increasing feebleness of the sol- drers But thff soldiers themselves want to keep on going. They will as long as they cnn.
