In instant response to the first call of Abraham Lincoln formed themselves into the intrepid Home Guards who held in check unaided the forces of Wise, and Lee, and Jackson, until the Federal armies came and driving the Confederates across the Alleghenies made possible the creation of the State of West Virginia; and also of those who as incomparable scouts & riflemen gave themselves to the nation and with dauntless courage and sagacity assisted in assuring to mankind "that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the Earth".
