Emulate the noble example of Charles Broadway Rouss, now a citizen of New York. He served as a private in the Clack House cavalry regiment of Virginia, than which no nobler ever leaped into battle. Mr. Rouss served throughout the war, conspicuous for bravery, and now after the lights and shadows of more than a quarter of a century he immortalized himself and his comrades by the gift of one hundred thousand dollars for the erection of Confederate Memorial Association, A Battle Abbey, in which shall be collected, preserved, and displayed relics of every kind, archives containing records and documents of every kind complying history. A grand work.
