The handsome eauestrain monument
ihows the great chieftain mounted on
a fiery steed, in the net of greetin;
his troops. His hat is in his right
sand. the left grasping the reins short
and the charger's arching neck show
in; how unwilling the steed is to stop.
The wind of his forward movement
is fanning his hair and the fringe of
his coat is 'blown back. The expres
,'ion is one of love mingled with
fatherly pride in his men.
The artist, Mr. F. W. Ruckstuh!.
has broken up his studio in New

through the eastern part of France.
Many of the world's famous works of

game as Montana is now.
The statue of Hampton and of hi;
horse are east in hollow bronze and
strikingly han'!some. Theface of the
hero is turned to the West, whether
by design or accident. In any case,
there was appropriateness in the selec
tion. since Hampton spent much of
his time in the WVest, and it was fron
-Mississippi that he came back to re
deem South Carolina. He was facing*
the West in 1S65 when he retreated
from Columbia before Sherman'
overwhelming force. 'Westward was
the course of the old pioneers, and
Hampton harked back to the old days
of the republic.
Description of Monument.
A more particular description of
the monument is given herewith:
The figure itself is mounted on tha
plinth with rests on the pedestal ar.d.
the successive bases. The pedestia]
<-ontains a deep grove into which is
cemented the plinth supporting th'.
horse. Nothing short of an earth
quake can ever move the monument
and even then the figure would not
be damaged, so solidly is it east.
The handsome metal plates on t.he
base and pedestal show in brief th'
career of Hampton and it is appro
priat" that they should be surourd
ed by filigree work of the leaves of the
palm and oak-the for&er signify

immortality. Here is a copy of the

GIN. BUTLER'S SPEECH
At the unveiling of the Wade Ham
pton statue at Columbia. S. C..
General Butler said in part:
-The story of Wade Hampton's
life goes back to the founders of tha
State. Those glorious men who had
taken issues with the mother counu
try had bepueathed the 'divine right
to rule' to every citizen of this coui
try. Among those men, battling for
their country's rights was found a
Hampton. General Wade Hampton,
in whose honor this statue is erected,
was one of those who opposed seper
ate secession of a State, but when the
long debate was adjoined to the bat
tlefield he saw his duty to his State
and did it. He had no doubt in his
mind as to where his first allegiance
"It has been the speaker's purpose
to review General Hampton's milita
ry record, and to that end he has
written to the War Department, re
questing to be furnished with such in
formation as the government possess
ed on the -ilitary services of Gener
a I Hampton.
He had found on investigation and
reflection that it would require a vol
ume to .do justice to such a career
as Hampton's. The battles mentioned
on the...base of the, .monument werz
but a few of the fights he was en
gaged in. Want of space forbade
mention of more, but as he thought
of old days, what, an -array of bat
tles rose up before him.
He had often been asked if Ham
ton were a tactician, and in the nar
row sense of that word, he would
answer, "No." He seriously doubted
if Hampton ever read a book on tac
tics in his life. He was first a cit
izen, not a soldier. But in the broad
er sense, General Hampton was a
grand tactician. He knew how to
seize the advantage points in a field
of battle far better than most com
manders, and the enemy was always
guessing where he would strike next.
He kept them mystefied.
He said Hampton stalked the ene
my like he was hunting big game. As
an instance in point, he cited Trevil
lian's station, where Hampton had de
feated the enemy with odds of three
to one against him. and had thereby
checked one of Grant's grand move
"It was due to General Hampton,
after General J. ]t B. Stuart's death
in April, 1864, that he received the
appointment of Lieutenant General,
but for some reason the appointment
was temperorily withheld and he did
not receive it until the following
General Butler here traced in de
tail some of the stirring incidents of
the war, citing instances of conspie
uous gallantry, and mentioned Maj.
Theo. G. Baker, as having been left
for dead, when lhe was here on the
stand, forty-odd years afterwards.
In regard to the burning of Co
lumbia, he gave a graphic account,
never before made. He said that he
(Butler) was ordered to remain in
charge of the evacuation and see that
no act of offense was committee. He
remained in the city three hours af
ter General Hampton had quitted it
and personally saw that no fire had
been started and when he left, just
ahead of Sherman's advance guard
there was no fire in the city.
It was perfectly clear that the fire
begun after all Confederate troops
had left the city for many hours.
General Butler gave a graphic ac
count also of the nomination of
Hampton in 1876 and cited the speech
he made. He also called attention to
Hamptor. message and letters as
containing wise deliverances, in clas
He predicted that Hampton would
go down the centuries with increasing
fame and that no brighter example
could be chosen by the youth of the
State. His peroration was pathetic
At the conclusion of the address
the students of Winthrop, the Colum
bia Female College and the College
for Women and the school children
from this and other cities sang the
"Bonnie Blue Flag,'' and other pa
triotic airs while the Daughters of
the Confederacy banked the monu

Hampton in History.
Significant is the fact that just 30
years ago all eyes were turned to
Hampton. At every railway station
anxious crowvds were assembled to
catch any news that might be afloat.
Hourly messages came and went from
one end of the State to the other.'
Here in Columbia angry erowds surg
ed to and fro. No man knew what
an hour might bring forth. The one
supreme figure, calm 'and uniruflied,
that k2pt his head throughi all the
storm, was Wade Hampton. On his
brad shoulders rested the fate of a
The people trusted not in vain. HIe
rose to the occasion saw that cont
flict with the Federal authorities must
be avoided at all hazards, met the ex
cited crowd of his fellow-countrymen
at Democratic headquarters and told
them to go home-that was all.
"I have be2n elected Governor of
South Carolina and by t he eternal God
shall be Governor, or else there shall
be none. Disperse quietly and go to
your home.'' Thos2 were his words
Now thirty years after. Wade
