On this day, abounding with stern memories of the past and great auguries of the future, I come to greet you- and, in the name and by authority of Virginia, I bid you all and each welcome, a heart-warm welcome, to her capital.With a mothers tears and love, with ceremonies to be chronicled in her archives and transmitted to the latest posterity, the commonwealth this day emblazons the virtues, and consecrates in enduring bronze the image, of her mighty dead.

Not for herself alone, but for the sister states whose sons he led in war, Virginia accepts, and she will proudly preserve, the sacred trust now consigned to her perpetual custody. Not for the southern people only, but for every citizen of whatever section of the American republic, this tribute to illustrious virtue and genius is transmitted to the coming ages, to be cherished as it will be with national pride as one of the noblest memorials of a common heritage of glory. Nay, in every country and for all mankind, Stonewall Jacksons career of unconscious heroism will go down as an inspiration, teaching the power of courage and conscience and faith directed to the glory of God.As this tribute has sprung from the admiration and sympathy of kindred hearts in another continent- as the eyes of Christendom have been turned to behold the achievements of the man- so will the heroic life here enshrined radiate back, to the remotest bounds of the world, the lessons its example has taught.It speaks to our fellow-citizens of the north, and, reviving no animosities of the bloody past, it commands their respect for the valor, the manhood, the integrity and honor of the people of whom this christian warrior was a representative type and champion.It speaks to our stricken brethren of the south, bringing back his sublime simplicity and faith, his knightly and incorruptible fidelity to each engagement of duty- and it stands an enduring admonition and guarantee that sooner shall the sun reverse its course in the heavens than his comrades and his compatriot people shall prove recreant to the parole and contract of honor which binds them, in the fealty of freemen, to the constitution and union of the states.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
