DEATH OF CAPT.
H. A. GAULARD
Captain Henry'Augustus Gaillard,
who died in Charleston on Satur
day, October 8th, was born on his
father's plantation, St. John's Par
ish, Berkley County, November 26,
1837, the son of David Gai'Iard and
Louise C. DuBose. His father's re
moval to settle in Fairfield District,
while young Hemy was an infant,
gave to Fairfield a son who became
one of her most useful and one of
her best beloved citizens, one who
became wholly identified with the
county in the most tragic and im
portant period of her history, a de
voted son with his whole heart and
soul always responsive to what he
conceived to be for the best inter
ests of her people. Few men, and
none at the time of his death, were
so well informed as to the history
of the county and who felt a keener
pride in her story, and in the pe
culiar worth of the citizenship pro
duced on its red hills resting upon
their granite foundation, typical of
the best human products of the Old

ly youth, and went to the Arsenal ist
Charleston. and was graduated from
the Citadel in 1867, Coming home,
he remained on his father's planta
tion near Winnsboro until 1859, when
he entered the University of Virginia
to 'take a course in law, but two
years later the War Between the
States came, and the morning of his
brilliant young manhood :was thus
turning his footsteps toward the bat
tle fields, where his thoughts for so
many.l.ng,_years 'dwelt, and -where
he was to find comrades, ties of love
:and frendship remained, in nemory
ti~ghout life, and whose deeds of
so many in our midst have heard his
eloquent tongue narrate with a force
and power not often excelled.
He was Adjutant of the Sixth
Regiment. Jenkins' Brigade. after

period of the war.
At the close of the war. he fin

fessor in the State University, John
S. Reynolds took his place under the
style of C'aillard & leynolds. He,
Davis, and Reynolds owned The
News and Hferald arnd edited it a
number of years.
The whirlwind of reconstruction
brought out Gaillard's' hiehest tal
ents and he caught his inspiration
from the o-eat storm. Into those
stirring days he threw all his great
-hysical power and mental "ifts.

the throng, soothed their anger and
