OF ORR'S REGIMENT
HALLA AUG. 15 an
The forty-ninth reunion of Orr's
Rifles has been held, und anothor
event has passed into history.
The survivors of this still famous
body of gallant soldiers and their
friends began a simultaneous attack
upon Walhalla from front, rear and

morning, the 15th, and before'sun

Thorp were about sjxty-flvo veter
ans of the War Between tho States
present, thirty of whom were survi
vors of Orr's Rifles. They came from j
all parts of South Carolina; they!
came from Georgia; they came from
Texas, to honor us by their presence
-and it was wonderful to soe that j
lowering clouds and falling rain
could not dampen their spirit of fra
ternity and good-fellowship. While
the weight of years is beginning lo
force the shoulders of some to stoop,
they are still young and hopeful In
spirit, and it was un inspiration for
us to have thom among us.
Tho First Meeting
was held in thc High School Audi
torium, which had been very taste
fully decorated for the occasion, and
an informal reception of one hour
was held, so that wo might meet thc
veterans and seo them meet ouch
other. Tho formal session was then
called to orler, and after several mu
sical selections. Capt. W. T. McGill,
president of tho association, look the
chair and called the association to
order for regular transaction of busi
ness. The annual routine matters
having been disposed of, the election
of oilicers for tho ensuing year was
then held. i
AU Officers Re-Electod.
lt being ascertained that all of the
officers were living and present, a
motion was made, and unanimously
carried, that all the old officers be re
elected for the ensuing year. They
are as follows:
President-W. T. McGill, Walhalla

culb j io isCtsrtuin it atty dad died
since the last meeting, lt was found
that at least ten had answered the
last, earthly roll-call. And thus the
ranks are being rapidly thinned.
The. meeting was then adjourned
until Tuesdny morning at 10 o'clock.
Second Day of the Reunion.
On Tuesday morning the rain was
still falling, but the committee tried
to carry out the program that had
been arranged anyway.
It had been planned to have a
grand parade of the old veterans and
veterans of tho World War, school
children and citizens, but on Recount
of the rain the greater part of lt had
to be abandoned.
At 11.45 the crowd reassembled
In the auditorium and were called to
order by W. T. McGill, president of
the association. The voternns occu
pied the front seats near the ros
trum, and seated on the rostrum with
the president were the sponsor, Miss
Eunice Macaulay, and her maids of
honor, Misses Eloise Strother, Janie
Harrison. Elsie Kaufmann. Sarah
Moss and Eunice White; the Boy
Scout Band of Seneca, and Hon. John
D. Cnppelmann, orator of thc day.
Tho exercises were opened with a
selection by the band, the Doxology
was then sung and the invocation of
fered hy Rev. E. P. Taylor, pastor ^'
Hie Walhalla Methodist church.
Tht re were several addresses of
welcome on behalf of the several or
ganizations, and responses by mem
bers of the regiment, as follows:
Qn behalf of the ?own of Walhalla
Mayor W. M. Brown said that it is
a pleasure for us to be able to honor
the living hy our acts now. and thai
we can but express our sorrow and
reverence for those that have passed
away. Ile eulogized In touching terms
the service thoy nil rendered to pos
terity in tho days of tho sixties; and
in thi' name of Walhalla he opei.ed
tho doors and delivered the keys ^f
every homo In Walhalla, and bade
tho veterans enter.
This was responded to by John
W. Todd, of Seneca. Ho said that tho
small boy of tho family was a.?. a vs
Imposed upon because ho had ail the
chores to do and errands to run; rA at
because ho ls the boy of tho regiment
this duty had been put upon him. Ho
said that those of the rcglmont *ho
were present woro only tho 'roar
guard'' of a onco grand army that
has already passed on, and that tho
roar guard would soon pass, and lt
would all bo but a matter of mem
ory, but that the record should be

preserved so that that memory could
be kept fresh in the minds of the
present and future generations; that
there is much history that has never
been 9 written, and much had been
j written that is incorrect, and correc
tions should be made while these
witnesses are yet living, for when
they pass it will be too late.
On the part of the Daughters of
the Confederacy Mrs. Jas. M. Moss,
tho secretary of Walhalla Chapter,
and granddaughter of Lieut.-Col. D.
A. Ledbetter, former commander of
tho regiment, welcomed them as fol

As soon as Mrs. Moss had finished
her address a veteran rose and moved

Col. J. C. Strlbling,
of Pendleton, was called upon to re
spond to the beautiful sentiments ex
pressed by Mrs. Moss. He said that
ho loved tho women, and had no
apology to make for it; that but for
tho women tho War Between tho
States would never have lasted as
long as it did, for lt was they who

Hon. John D. Cappolmann, a na

past a rosidont of Charleston, was
then introduced. Ho said that tho

position of the people pf all section*,
in that memorable period dependod

times the viewpoint depended largely
upon the section in which one lived,
but that now we look at tho ques

that every veteran shares the glory
of Lee and of Jackson in that heroic
struggle. He told them that, now
that their faces are set toward tho

that ho could not refrain from call
