"The Roanoke Leader" - May 13, 1925:

MR. WALTON A SPEAKER AT MEMORIAL DAY IN AUBURN
Auburn, Ala., April 28th

William O. Walton of LaFayette, lawyer, editor and representative in the legislature, was the speaker at the Memorial Day celebration here in Langdon Hall, the college chapel. Among other things, Mr. Walton said:

" All the battles in the Civil War were not fought with lead and powder, but the mothers, sisters and others at home who made such sacrifices for this great cause, helped. I am out of the clay of the South and I am glad of it.
The Confederate blood ran through every loyal Confederate soldier when the war was over. They returned to the South, to their various homes and found them desolate and everything gone, scalawags and carpetbaggers in charge of the government; in fact, they found everything except good. To the South, the greatest credit goes to the Confederate soldier who helped whole-heartedly to rebuild it. Let us this day rededicate our lives to such an occasion as Memorial Day. The South was not conquered, but overcome by large numbers and let us remember today those who sleep in unmarked graves unknown to us. The
speaker turned to the Confederate veterans on the platform and said "Soon, all of you will be gone, and we love you for what you have given us. May you rest in peace under the shade of the trees over the river with Stonewall Jackson. Let us live to make men holy. They fought to make us free."
