    14. 14. Gen. Richard Taylor, CSA (Son of President Zachary Taylor) General Canby met me with much urbanity. We retired to a room, and in a few moments agreed upon a truce… Then, rejoining the throng of officers, introductions and many pleasant civilities passed… A bountiful luncheon was spread, of which we partook, with joyous poppings of champagne- corks… the first agreeable explosive sounds I had heard for years. The air of "Hail Columbia," which the band in attendance struck up, was instantly changed by Canby's order to that of "Dixie;" but I insisted on the first, and expressed a hope that Columbia would be again a happy land, a sentiment by many libations.

O CAPTAIN! my Captain! our fearful trip is done; The ship has weather'd every rack, the prize we sought is won; The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting, While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring: But O heart! heart! heart! O the bleeding drops of red, Where on the deck my Captain lies, Fallen cold and dead. By: Walt Whitman

    24. 24. Reflections of an Ex-Vice President “General [H.R.] Jackson was released from this place to-day – the order came this morning and he left this evening. I am truly glad for his good fortune. But why should he be discharged and other officers kept, I do not understand; nor do I understand why he should be discharged and I held. He bent his energies to bring about secession; I strove with all my power to prevent it.” -- Alexander H. Stephens July 8, 1865 Fort Warren Prison, MA Alexander H. Stephens
