Correspondence of the Cincinnati Gazette.
DELAWARE, January 31.
The 4th Ohio Regiment held their first reunion at this
place yesterday. I know not how many of the members of the
regiment still survive, but there were only sixty-nine present at
the reunion. In the evening they assembled in Templar Hall,
where a bountiful supper was prepared. All veteran soldiers in
town, widows and orphans of soldiers, and some other friends, were
invited to join in partaking of the supper.
After supper, the following toasts were read and
"The Fourth Ohio Volunteer Infantry - May the
remembrance of her patriotism and service ever remain fresh in the
history of the State, and teh gratitude of her people."
Responded to by Col. J. H. Godman, of Columbus.
"The heroic dead of the Fourth Ohio Infantry, who died
that their country might live - May their names, and their deeds,
ever be green in the memory of a grateful people."
Responded to by Rev. D. G. Strong, of this
place, Chaplain of the regiment.
"Our disabled comrades, and the widows and orphans of
our fallen comrades."
Responded to by Gen. J. S. Jones, also of
"The memories of the camp and battle-field."
Responded to by Lieut. J. H. Carr, of Wooster.
"Our soldiers of the late war and their achievements."
Responded to by Wm. Kepler of Delaware.
The different speakers did credit to themselves in
their addresses, all of which were received with hearty cheers.
After this, Colonel Godman proposed that the old
song, entitled "Rally Round the Flag, Boys," be sung by the
Chaplain Strong then requested the audience to
sing the Doxology, commencing, "Praise God from whom all blessings
flow," after which the band played the "Star Spangled Banner."
Colonel Godman then returned thanks to the
citizens of Delaware for their hospitality, and then announced that
the next re-union of the boys of the Fourth would be held at Mt.
Vernon, on the first Wednesday of February, 1869, at which time and
place he hoped to see every living member of the "Glorious Old
As far as my observation extended the "boys" seemed to
enjoy this first re-union. M. I.
