C.S.A. in Glencoe


The annual reunion of the survivors of the 4th Kentucky Cavalry C. S. A. held here Thursday, was a decided success and a most enjoyable affair.  W. B. Crabb, the commander, residing at Eminence; J. W. Turner, the secretary, residing at Turner's Station, and last but not least our own J. T. Rudd, who was the Chairman of the Committee on Arrangements, performed their parts well and are entitled to a great deal of credit for the success of the reunion. 

However, the citizens of Glencoe, as they always do, met every requirement and generously responded to every call.  There were fifteen hundred people present and all seemed well pleased with the entire affair and its management.  Dinner was served to all and there was plenty.  Hon. Lewis E. Thomas made the welcome address which was responded to by Hon. Thos. J. McElrath of Carrollton.  Hon. M. D. Gray, of Williamstown made an address, but the speech of the occasion was delivered by U. S. Senator J. C. S. Blackburn, who thrilled the vast assemblage with his eloquent tribute to the heroes who wore gray.  The Moorefield Brass Band furnished the music and headed the procession in the morning.  Everything passed off pleasantly and everybody appeared to have an enjoyable time.  The reunion will be held at Sparta next year.
