Abstract:

An 1895 paper by John L. W. Monenntly[?] praising Indiana's military contributions to the Civil War, 1861-1865.

Scope and Contents note

This collection consists of a handwritten paper about Indiana's contributions to the Civil War, read to the George W. Lennard post of the Grand Army of the Republic in New Castle, Indiana, on 2 March 1895 by Monenntly. It contains no references to any individual service or regiment, being an encomium lauding the service of Indiana regiments and officers. Were its hagiographic qualities in any doubt, Monenntly's paper actually heaps praise on General Ambrose Burnside, calling him "as fine a specimen of soldierly bearing as ever led men to battle," who "fairly earned and worthily wore two stars."
