The Confederates' Parade
Excerpt from the above article:
The parade was closed by the men from Tennessee, who having less distance to travel, were able to appear in stronger lines than any other state. At their head rode General John M. Taylor and just behind him Miss Leila Maury, the sponsor for the state, with a bevy of maids of honor. Seventy men marching under the old flag of the Fourth Tennessee infantry, were at the head of the column and then came the remnant of the 154th infantry commanded by Colonel E.A. Cole. With this detachment was an old faded battleflag that had floated in the smoke of a dozen fights, it bearing the names of them all.
