The article was originally printed in the Richmond Times-Dispatch with a portion reprinted in the November 5, 1915 Manasass Journal Newspaper regarding the 1911 Manassas Peace Jubilee and George Round (chairman - pictured above).

"It is with extreme sorrow and regret that I perceive evidence of some of the bitterness that should have been buried at Appomattox still remains in the hearts of some of our most estimable citizens, as shown by the resolutions passed by the Richmond Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy regarding the Manassas Peace Jubilee, and also by the attempt of another chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy to re-establish Mason and Dixon's line, which has been entirely obliterated. The peace jubilee was held at Manassas in 1911. I have never met with a Confederate veteran who did not favor it.

"My friend, Lieutenant Round, who has been its most energetic advocate, is a whole-souled, liberal hearted man, perfectly free of all sectionalism, and has done more for the county of his adoption and its county seat than any man living. I feel perfectly assured the our Heavenly Father caused the war to end in the best possible way that it could for the South as well as the North, and that the South should feel as proud as the North for the past it performed in making this a perfectly reunited country and the greatest on earth."

- Lt. Col. Edmund Berkeley - October, 1915
