Only Six of the Hundreds of Gallant Young Men Who Enlisted in 100th Regiment Present

The annual reunion of the 100th regiment Indiana Volunteer Infantry was held in Auburn Wednesday. Auburn is the permanent meeting place for the 100th. Of the hundreds of gallant young men who enlisted in this unit of the Union army during the rebellion, only six were present Wednesday to sit together at dinner at the Hotel Auburn, transact the business which accumulated during the past year and recount the experiences of the war. Those six were Dr. W. B. Graham, of Auburn, President of the organization, a member of company A; A. Gilbert Rhoades of Berlin Heights, Ohio, company B; Addison Cleveland, Etna Green, Ind., company B; Frank Rhoades of Orland, Ind., and H. S. Woodworth of Omaha, Nebr., residing at 1428 Fort street, a member of company B who came the greatest distance. (Re: Newspaper unknown)


Maryville, Mo., Dec. 23—Two tattered bugles that sounded "cease firing" to the war-weary hosts in blue an gay at Appomattox courthouse on an April morning 64 years ago were laid away today to be silent forever. Nat Sisson, 88, raised one of the bugles to thin, uncertain lips yesterday and played "taps" at the graveside of his boyhood chum and comrade of old age who had owned this other. The two had been boyhood chums down east. When the Civil war came, Sisson joined the union army as a bugler. Childress became a bugler for the confederacy., for four years they sounded the martial calls that urged north against south and south against the north. When Lee surrendered they blew the signal for peace. Reunited, the veterans settled here. Yearly on Memorial Day their bugles sounded the call for those who had gone on before them. Now that Childress at 92, had joined the host in the other world where no bugles blow, his friend will blow his bugle no more. (Re: Newspaper unknown)
