Description An Address de Selden Connor:
Excerpt from An Address: May 5, 1909- At a Meeting of the Maine Commandery of the Military Order of the Loyal Legion of the United States at Riverton Park Casino, Portland, Me-, To Commemorate the One Hundredth Anniversary of the Birth of Hannibal Hamlin, in Paris, Maine, August The praise of Lincoln has hardly ceased echoing throughout the world, evoked by the hundredth anniversary of his birthday. This year is also the centenary of Hamlin, Lincoln's fellow standard-bearer, trusted friend and counselor. It is proper that at this meeting the centennial of the birth of Hamlin, a few months hence, should be anticipated and our evening devoted to loving memory of him and to the recollection of his many and high claims to good fame and enduring honor among men. It is especially fitting that the Military Order of the Loyal Legion of the United States should be mindful of this great friend and supporter of the Union, since the chief of its objects is "to cherish the associations and memories of the war waged in defence of the unity and indivisibility of the Republic." and because Hamlin was elected a companion of the Order by the Mother Commandery at Philadelphia under that section of the constitution which made eligible to membership "those gentlemen who in civil life, during the Rebellion, were especially distinguished for conspicuous and consistent loyally to the National Government, and were active and eminent in maintaining the supremacy of the same." It is the high privilege of the Commandery of Maine to initiate the memorial exercises in honor of the centenary of Hamlin, since he was a companion of this Commandery by transfer and was the noblest representative of Maine in the great struggle for Freedom and Unity that will make the middle of the nineteenth century forever memorable. Following our lead the state and the country will no doubt pause for a moment at this milestone of history, roll back the tide of years and disclose the merits of this preeminent citizen, this great American, and declare Ins standing in "the title deeds of fame, his hold and heritage in distant times."
