Oration free pdf Excerpt from Oration: Delivered at Chicago, July 22, 1897, at the Dedication of the Movement to the Memory of Major-General, John A. Logan Illinois is proud and happy. Waiting patiently for a fitting time, she opens all her welcoming gates and bids the world take note what breed of men she rears. Here is the product of her soil, and here she brings a mother's exultant heart to be enshrined. This great city, the lake with all its breadth of waters, the prairies stretching outward to the West, and the sky, mingling light and cloud in an ever changing picture, are resplendent witnesses of the scene. The event, the hour, and the man are historic. Once, upon a day like-this, the pulse of summer was beating hot and fierce, when a great leader fell, as leaders must fall if it be so appointed. Some are here to whom it seems but yesterday. They remember the clustering pines, the thickets dark with the foliage of July, the spires of Atlanta wooing them forward yet a little farther- and they remember, too, as they will remember always, the message, speeding like an arrow in its flight, that told how McPherson lay dead in his harness, ere yet his fame had passed its dawn. Surely, I am not wrong in saying that never was this Nation in more deadly peril than when the Army of the Tennessee was left like some great rudderless ship in the grasp of the storm. "Of what avail are men," says Carlyle, "when we must needs have a man?" But the man came- nay, he was already there, flashing, as was his wont, in that imperious way which scorns to parley with fate, but subdues it with a glance. On that day - July 22nd, 1864 John A. Logan was born to immortality. Here we place his image for all generations. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
