RE11ISCENCES OF TH E PAL.IMETTO f:EGI
LIEUT. DAVID ADAMIlS.
Duce et decorum rst per patria mori.
In the call upon the country I' volun
teers, Lieutenant Adams. Company D.
Edgefield District, was aniting the very
foremost to offer his services, and display
cd great zeal in his efforts to raise the com.
pany to which he was attached. Nor did his
zeal abate in thetimse that lebspe. between
the first and second requisition lie was at
the time afflicted with rheumtatisin. & con
seq'uently he was beset with the entreaties
of friends and relatives to remain at homne
but his ardent spirit of tadventure, urged
on by a glow of wasrn. puttiotie feehin,
led him to the scene of war in spite of ev
ery opposing obstacle. Ile was ebosen
first sergeant of Iris comtpany. in which ca
pacity he acted until about the 1-t of July
1847. w hen lie was elected 2 1 lieutenanti
to fi'l a vacancy. The first post was too
limited in its sphere or his military ac
comnplishrnents : the second, was not suf
ficiently large to call into proper ex.ercise
all the manly qualities of mind and heart
with vhich he was entled. But he filled
alike the one and the other with great hon
or to himself and to his country. As first
sergeant he was held up as a molel to the
regineut. As lieutenant he had no supe
rior. He would have been inferior to none
as Captain. Intelligent, high rit:ed, and
brave as bravery casn be defined to be, lie
" could not have failed to acquire distinction
whenever occasion oflered. in what station
soever he may have been placed.
But his bravery, remarkable as it truly
was, did not constitute his only virtue.
We never saw a man actuated by s) high
a sense of duty, with such strict and lofty
sentiments of honor and prohity. He was
tost strictly to be relied on in all his deal
ings with mven, and in all emergencies that
try men's sois. A promise was wit hinm
n pledge-- bond uut to be frivously bro
ken. In consonance with these noble im
pulses, he was the bold defender of his own
character, ai a staunch advocate fir the
rights and privileges of others. lie wilful
ly wronged no one himself, and noukd its
sul'er others wattonly to wrong hint nor
tbose for whssom he had feelisgs of close
friendship But until an insult was of'er
ed, or injustice done, Lieut. .Adams was
silent and unneddliug. lie made no boast
of his courage-no threats of his iaten
tions. No one would suspect his lion cot,
rage, nor his strong good sense, until cir
cumstances called them forth-ho uupre
tending he was, so free from all spirit of
boast or display. When the emer, ency
arose, howtever, he was always ready for
it. And his capacity always enlarged it
self as the occasion equired. We, never
.saw hti' ced is it stadiusn, that ie did

conceive of nobler dnring than he evinced

commissioned officer and entitled to a com

in order to become the standard bearer of

that the heart within was on fire. In this
