THE WOMEN OF THE CONFEDERACY,

WFIOSE PIOUS MINISTRATIONS TO OUR WOUNDED SOLDIERS

SOOTHED THE LAST HOURS OF THOSE

[ocr errors]

WHO DIED FAR FROM THE OBJECTS OF THEIR TENDEREST LOVE;

WHOSE DOMESTIO LABORS
CONTRIBUTED MUCH TO SUPPLY TIIE WANTS OF OUR DEFENDERS IN THE FIELD;

WHOSE ZEALOUS FAITH IN OUR CAUSE
SHONE A GUIDING STAR UNDIMMED BY THE DARKEST CLOTDS OF WAR;

WHOSE FORTITUDE
ST STAINED THEM UNDER ALL THE PRIVATIONS TO WHICH THEY WERE SUBJECTED;

WHOSE ANNUAL TRIBUTE
EXPRESSES THEIR ENDURING GRIEF, LOVE, AND REVERENCE

FOR OUR SACRED DEAD;

AND

WHOSE PATRIOTISM

WILL TEACH THEIR CHILDREN

TO EMULATE THE DEEDS OF OUR REVOLUTIONARY SIRES ;

These Pages are Dedicated
BY THEIR COUNTRYMAN,

JEFFERSON DAVIS.
