Michigan

Address of Col. Isaac D. Toll

The Brady.Guards giving the lieutenant-colonel of that regiment, our own Williams, also the leader of Company K, Third Dragoons, both heroes of two wars. The Scott Guards giving us the stalwart Greusel, now of Iowa, who, with the gallant colonel and major of your volunteers, was also in the civil war. There are others I might recall, McConnell, Comstock, Beach, Wilkins, Titus, Stockton and Reuhle, but these are given to illustrate. It would exhaust your patience to listen to the names of all those of our band of 1,500 who gave the' benefit of their experience to their country.
Let our state then encourage the military art by suitable enactments. Let it foster the nation's cheap defense, a well disciplined militia, supported in part by the communications of those liable under the law to do military duty. Let us exalt the military art individually and col-; lectively. Let us be prepared for those emergencies which experience-has shown within a comparatively short period may suddenly arise without scarcely a defender for property, corporate or private.
