Lenoir Will Give Welcome To Boys
Mr. L.H. Coffey of Lenoir, chairman of the Caldwell exemption board, passed through Hickory this morning en route home from Raleigh, where he attended the celebration in honor of the 113th regiment and greeted the home boys in Battery E. This battery lost more men in action than all the rest of the regiment combined.
It is expected that Battery E will be able to leave Camp Jackson next Monday or Tuesday in a body for Lenoir and arrangements have been made to give the boys a great welcome home.
