Book review

Excerpt from Address: Delivered in Boston Before the Hooker Association of Massachusetts

Comrades and Gentlemen: - I am glad to be here this evening in the presence of so many members of the Hooker Association of Massachusetts, one of the largest and most influential military organizations in America. Through your courtesy it will be my pleasure to talk to you about General Hooker and his campaigns. He was a hero in three wars, - Seminole, Mexican and the War of the Rebellion, the greatest conflict of modern times.

This is a labor of love for me. At least, I am sure to-night of a sympathetic audience, for you all loved Hooker as I did, and you all appreciated and admired him. How fortunate Hooker has been in the devoted friends he has left behind him to cherish his memory! You and I have been often pained to hear his critics - and they are not few - pass over all his brilliant exploits in many battles and dwell upon the unsatisfactory result of one. They ignore his faithful and victorious service in three wars, and recall only the one battle in which he was not fortunate.

Our loyalty to the memory of Hooker is a sentiment in which affection and admiration are blended. His comrades loved him because he made them good soldiers, - because he gave them confidence in themselves.
