the brave assailants held so tenaciously and defiantly the ground they had gained; nor one in which it was more hazardous to perform the chivalrous act, in commemoration of which these chaste and beautiful medals have been struck. They are appropriate rewards for your fearless valor and devotion, and are worthy of 'The Century' and the occasion which called them forth. They should be preserved and transmitted by each of you, as a high and priceless honor.
"For your devotion to your Colonel, and for your heroic services in rescuing his body from under the guns of the enemy, accept the thanks of his relatives and friends; and accept these medals from the 'Century Club' as testimonials of their high appreciation of Colonel Porter's character, and of your bold achievement in the hazardous enterprise. Keep them while you live, and transmit them to your children, to be preserved as a memorial of those services.
