We called upon the old patriot, Mr. Burns, the other day and found him quite comfortable. He is the man, though past seventy, who shouldered his musket and went to the field and fought with the Iron Brigade. He is made of the right kind of
stuff. Let his name be recorded in history as an example of mature patriotism.
General Doubleday commended his conduct and the old man s fame has found a place in the school literature of the land. Many a youth has declaimed the poet s lines on his patriotic conduct. He lived to be over eighty years old and lies buried by his wife at Gettysburg.
