Appomattox free pdf Excerpt from Appomattox: Paper Read Before the New York Commandery Loyal Legion of the United States- October Seventh, 1903 At noon of this day General Ord, of the Army of the James, joined us with two divisions of the Twenty-fourth Corps under General Gibbon, and Birney's division of the Twenty-fifth Corps, - colored troops- Ord, by virtue of seniority, becoming commanding officer of the whole.

Officers slid out of saddle, loosened the girth, slipped an arm through a loop of bridle-rein, and sunk to sleep. Horses stood with drooping heads just above their masters' faces. All dreaming, - one knows not what, of past or coming, possible or fated. Scarcely is the first broken dream begun when a cavalry man comes splashing down the road, and vigorously dismounts, pulling from his jacket front a crumpled note. The sentinel standing watch by his commander, worn in body but alert in every sense, touches your shoulder. "Orders, sir, I think!"
