Civil War speech possibly written by Hamlet Totten, my great-great-grandfather. Found in the attic of his home in Rural Valley. Smith's "History of Armstrong County" states that Hamlet Totten ran for county auditor in the Republican ticket circa 1856; this speech was probably written later since it refers to the war in the present tense.
