THE OLD HERO OF SHILOH PASSES AWAY
It had been known to our readers and to the people generally that the Generals health had been failing for the last year or so; also, that his mental facilities were weakening, hence, although at last the end came rather suddenly, it was not entirely unexpected. His condition was not considered so very serious until Tuesday of last week, when he was taken with a sinking spell, and for a few hours he was in a critical condition, yet he rallied, and with the wonderful vitality he possessed, was able to be up and around the room, and partake of nourishment for supper. But to Dr. J. Walker, his physician, and the attendants who waited upon him, this change seemed to impress them that some thing more serious would follow. It came Thursday afternoon, Feb. 7, when the grand old hero was stricken with paralysis on his right side, and from that time until his death he never regained consciousness, and at 7:40 Friday morning, without a struggle, his spirit peacefully returned to Him who gave it.
The news of his death was soon known over town, and in a short time flags at half mast were displayed at the armory and at other businesses and residences where there were flagstaffs. The services were held at the First Methodist Church. The remains, under the escort of the G.A.R., were brought from the residence to the church at about 1 o'clock p.m., and from that time until the opening of the services at 2:30 o'clock. lay in state, and were viewed by hundreds of our people, as well as many from the adjoining towns, and also many from a distance. Long before the time for the services the spacious church building began filling, and by the time the family and relatives arrived every seat in the auditorium, annex and class rooms were filled.

HIS MILITARY RECORD
On June 8, 1846, Benjamin M. Prentiss volunteered as a
soldier in the war with Mexico; on the same day was commissioned Capt. of
Company I, 1st regiment Ill. Infantry, and was discharged with his company
at Buena Vista, Mexico, June 17, 1847.
HE WAS NO RETREATER
For more than twenty years the late Gen. B.M. Prentiss was
the victim of a singularly flase idea of the part taken by his division in
the battle of Shiloh. The first reports of that almost hand-to-hand
struggle between two great armies stated that Gen. Prentiss division was
surprised at daybreak and quickly captured. As a matter of fact the
division fough with the greatest heroism for ten hours. It
maintained its ground so stubbornly that it was isolated and
surrounded. The capture was due to the tenancity with which the
division held its ground from 6 o'clock in the morning until 4 in the
afternoon. But the first public impression of the battle was hard to
remove. Gen. Prentiss was often asked if he was taken in his tent before
he had time to form his lines. Many years after the battle the Loyal
Legion, realizing the injustice done to the General, took hold of the
matter and spread the truth about the prolonged and manificent fight made
by his division at Shiloh. If Prentiss had known haw to retreat as
well as he fought his division would not have been made prisoners.
