During the late civil war no class of our citizens exhibited a purer patriotism or a truer heroism than the graduates and non-graduates Of our colleges. At the commencement of the struggle they hurried to the defence Of the Capitol with all the ardor of youth; and thenceforward, in defeat and in victory, till the rebellion was overthrown, they shared the toils, dangers and privations Of a soldier's life. Their services have not been forgotten. Indeed, no one will doubt that at the present time, because of the deeds of these men, the colleges which they represented have a stronger hold upon the affections of our people than they had before the rebellion, when, by too many, it was supposed that studies are unfavorable to the development of a character equally fitted for the duties of peace and of war.
