Flowers left for James Cunningham
At the close of the Civil War, 26 Union officers presented the following testimonial to James A. Cunningham:"Camp of 32nd Mass. Vols. near Washington, D.C. June 28, 1865. The Undersigned Commissioned Officers of the 32nd Regt. Mass. Vols. take this opportunity to express our high Respect and Esteem, and Confidence in Lieutenant Colonel James A. Cunningham and to bear cheerful testimony to his Coolness, Bravery and Efficiency on the Battlefield, as well as his high ability as an Executive officer. After nearly four years service with him, thro' all the campaigns of the "Army of the Potomac", we believe that he has few equals and no superiors as a Regimental Commander, and it will always be proud recollection, with Each of us, that we have been led in many a hard-fought Battle and fatiguing Campaign by him." After the War, Cunningham was promoted to Major General and appointed Adjutant General of the Mass. Militia. He served in that capcity from 1866 to 1879, after which he was Superintendant of the Mass. Soldier's Home at Chelsea until his passing in 1892.
