existing government.

Judge Pennypacker calls to the attention of the student, and called to my attention that the first troops to get to Washington v/ere the Pennsylvania-German Ringold Artillery from Reading, the Allen Rifles from Allentown, a company from Pottsville, the Logan Guards from Lewistown, and another organization the name of which escapes me, all five of which came to Washington while the Massachusetts people were contending with a mob in Baltimore which was keeping them there when they ought to have been in Washington. There were few distinctive Pennsylvania-German military organizations. I think the most unique one I ever heard of was that of the colored Pennsylvania-German

To them they seemed to be creatures from some strange land, who had their color alone, but were no other kin to them. Now there was furnished by the Pennsylvania-German element in these military organizations a strength and a steadfastness that had a marked effect in the morale and the discipline of the regiments, part of which they composed. In just the same way as I referred to the acceptance of settled conditions, there seemed to be a settling with the other elements in these organizations by these Germans, and a conviction forced upon the other elements, based on the sentiments of the Germans, that this military duty was something not to be escaped, not to be slighted, not to be fulfilled as little as possible, but as much as one could do. They were not seeking glory, but simply to do the business of the hour the German feeling prevailed that what is, was, and was to be expected as the business of the day, and that feeling through the influence of the Pennsylvania-German permeated to their associates and through beings,

Hartranft? I well remember him personally, and I well remember the genuine and high and sincere respect with which all our people seemed to regard him, and the sorrow that was shown by our people on the morning of his funeral.

Then there was General Beaver Governor Beaver Judge Beaver, President of this Society. We all can remember the campaign of 1882 when political vituperation was still the fashion, how everybody who was opposed to him politically seemed to take a fall out of him; and yet, on the other hand, you can doubtless remember just as I, with what respect and regard the last thirty years of his life were marked, and how he was regarded as a leading and eminent citizen of our state.

I want to give in a very few words just a brief reference to some of the families which contributed to the personnel both of the officers and of the privates in the Re;

the Wistar Family: There was General Isaac J.

Major Joseph W.
