Sam Davis?the Brave
W. C. Dodson, in
I would not speak one word of dis
paragement of our battlefield heroes,
or the commander and his brave men
who followed him into the very jaws
of death. The charge of l'ickett's j
division at Gettysburg, Gordon's des- j
perate assault upon the enemy's works j
in the last days of the civil war, the j
death grapple at Franklin in which ;
five of our bravest generals gave up
their lives, and many more notable ;
achievements, illustrating the heights
to which human courage can attain. ,
and must always reflect undying honor,
not only upon Confederates, but stand
as monuments to the heroism of Amer- j
But grand and glorious as were all
these, and brave as were these men,
there was a man I think who display
ed a higher type of courage than even
they. He was not an officer of even
the humblest rank, and knew nothing
of the inspiration that comes with the
excitement and huzzas of sanguinary
strife. He led no forlorn hope, and
d;d not go down in the forefront of
battle with the shout of victory upon
his dying lips.
How, then, did this brave man die? |
The answer is, he died the most igno
ble of deaths?that of the gallows,
with a rope around his neck. But he
fought the fight of ' faith and truth,"
and as long as human valor is ap
plauded, as long as the grandeur of
moral heroism is appreciated, in every j
ae?', in every clime, this man must J
r uk as the bravest of the brave, and
his martyr's death reflect honor upon
the manhood of the world.
THE STORY OF SAM DAVIS.
I cannot tell this story better than
in the language of Hon. Tulley Brown,
in an address deliervcd at Nashville,
Tcnn., early in 1901, and published
in the Nashville American, part of
of whioh is as follows:
"Ladies and Gentlemen: The pleas
ing duty has been accorded to me to
night to introduce to you the distin
guished lady who will entertain you
with song and dialeotof the old South,
but I have been requested by the
oommittee, before introducing her, to
have some few words to say with refer
once to the object of this meeting, and
to the young man whose short life and
whose glorious death in a cause long
gone by is the reason for ereoting to
him a monument upon the aoropolis
of the State.
"You doubtless have seen that .he
Legislature of Tennessee by a resolu
tion, has appropriated a spot upon the
oapitol grounds for a monument to
this young man. And the questions
might be asked: Why did the legis
lature pass such a resolution? Who
was Sam D^vis? Did he lead listen
ing senates? Was he ever a governor
of the State? Did he lead our legions
to buttle? What did he do, that the
legislature of this State should have
given to him a place by the side of
James K. Polk and Andrew Jackson,
* two presidents of the United States;
one whw slept for many years in sight
of the capitol, but whose tomb was
allowed to be placed upon the eapitol
site; and Andrew Jackson, a man na
tional in his fame, a man glorious, a
man known to all the earth; and out
of all the Tennessee people since the
capitol was built, only these two have
been allowed resting places there?one
in his grave and the other astride of j
his bronze horse? Then who was
Sam. Davis? That is what tho com
mittee has asked me to toll.
''It is a simple story of a short life
and a death 80 glorious that it has no
rival. (Applause). His father and
mother eame to the State of Tennessee
from Virginia, that State that has fur
nished so much of good and so much
of greatness to the world. I take it,
as they came from Virginia and from
his simple Eoglish name, that he came
of proud Eoglish blood. He lived the
life of other Tennessee boys, and was
at a military school hero by Nashville
in 18(11, when the cloudburst of war
startled the American people Ten
nesscean-likc, the young man, scarcely
nineteen, volunteered in the first regi
ment he could reach, which was the
First Tennessee Regiment, C. S. A.
"I have asked a soldier comrade of
that regiment, who was afterwards
connected with his family, about him,
for I felt certain that you would de
sire to hear of a man so famous, of a
man capable of so heroic a deed, that
any particular would be interesting.
Sam Davis was nearly six feet high,
and was as straight and slender as a
mountain pine. He had a shock of
hair black as tho raven's wing, and
his faee was bronzed, his eyes black
and shining like diamonds. He was
gci tic and kindly as a girl. He loved
hb mother, and was gentle in his de
. Meant* to his soldier comrades; while
/ everyu -w who knew him was fond of
him. He entered tho army and served
some time with the First Tennessee,
and theu was selected to compose a
ist Man the Civil War
company of scouts on the dangeroua
duty of invading the enemy's line.
That service went on until in Novem
ber, 1S03, when he was captured by
the Federal soldiery near the town of
i'ulaBki, Tenn. There were found
upon his person maps of fortifications
of Nashvi?e and other places, statis
tics of the Federal army, their num
bers in infantry, their artillery, caval
ry, and all it takes to make up au
"General Dodge, who was the com
mander of the Federal corps then at
1'ulaski. sent for him. He made
known to the young man the grave
and serious condition which he was
in: that he would h-ive to call a court
martial to try him fora spy. General
Dodge said to him: 'If you will give
me the name of your ioformant, if
you will tell me where these maps and
ligures came from. I will set you free.'
General Dodge evidently supponed
that they came from arouud his head*
quarters, either from a staff officer pr
somebody in the confidence of a staff
officer; he was very pressing in his
desire to get this information. He
says himself: 'I was struck with ad
miration at the integrity, the dignity,
und the splendid courage of this young
man, and I did my best to save his
"The courtmartial was called. Two
charges were submitted. Charge first
was that he was inside Federal lines
carrying upou his person maps and
communications detrimental to the
government and to the armies of the
I'nited States. The specifications of
both charges were set out.
"To the first charge and specifica
tion ho pleade& not guilty. 'I am
here in my Confederate uniform,
without concealment.' 'I am not a
spy.' (Applause.) To the second
charge he pleaded guilty. And chftn
that was done he was confined in a
separate cell, and the fact was made
known to him that he had to die.
."On November 2b\ 1863, on Thurs
day night, this young fellow, in his
lonely cell wrote a letter most pathetic
to his mother and father. He said:
'I am going to die on the gallows to
morrow. Do not grieve forme, it will
do no good. Think of me; do not
forget me. Tell the children to be
good. I am not afraid to die.'
"Next morning there was sent to
the jail a wagon to take him to the
place of exeoution, under the orders
of the courtmartial. One of his com
rades, who had been captured at the
same time, but was confined with
others as a prisoner in the court
bouse of the little town, said they
heard the drum roll, they saw the
regimental march, and sitting in the
wagon they saw their comrade and
their friend. When ho saw them he
arose to his fee:, and bowed. He was
taken on over to the eastern portion
of the city, on a bluff side, and there,
sitting on a bench, he awaited the
action of the military authorities.
"General Dodge, thinking that in
the presence of the scaffold, in the
presence of immediate death, this
young hero might have changed his
mind, aud that he might give him the
information that he so muoh desired,
sent Captain Chiokasaw, his ohief
scout, to him. He touched him on
the shoulder with his hand, and said:
'It is not too late. Give me the in
formation, and you will be escorted to
the Confederate lines.' That scaffold,
gentlemen and ladies, loomed up, and
was a hideous specter in his front,
but he turned and said: 'Captain,
give my thanks to General Dodge for
the interest he has taken in me; but
if I l\ad a thousand lives, I would sur
render them here and now before I
would do a thing like that. (Ap
"Look at the gracious and sweet
demeanor?no bluffing, no bravado, no
defiance, and no truculence?of that
gallant young spirit ou the verge of
his grave! He was a gentleman. He
had the gentleness in t)ini to thank
his enemies for the courtesies that
they bad done him. He asked Cap
tain Armstrong: 'How long have I to
live?" Ho replied: 'Fifteen minutes/
Davis said: 'The boys will have to
fight the balance of the battles with
out me.' Captain Armstrong said: 'I
hate to do this thing; I would rather
"Standing arouud that scnffold were
the stern phalanxes of the government
under orders, with their guns in their
hands. This young man was alone.
He was twenty-one years and a few
months of age. He had no counSol;
he had no friend; he had no backer;
that terrible thing was before him,
and the resolution that he had was of
his own making. He arose to his
feet and looked around. What did
he see? He looked upon the sun for
the last time. Lifo is very sweet. It
is particularly sweet when we are
about to lose it. The sun that had
kissel his check to a lau for twenty
one years was giving hiuj her last ki*s;
the breeze that waved his raven hair
was Mowing on it for the last time;
the hills of l'ulaski were standing
silent around him. Nearness to death
must have quickened his faculties?
and how he must have loved to live;
how that heroic young spirit must
have hated to die! Through his veins
was running blood like quicksilver,
singing to him tbe song of life. The
earth was very beautiful; the sky was
very blue. He could almoBt hear the
dropping of the tears of his mother;
he could hear her low moan and the
groan of agony that came from his
father. Perhaps there was another
somewhere in Tennessee who was on
Ler knees at that time?somebody
must have loved that glorious young
fellow. He cauld look over toward
the South, and there he could see the
hard-pressed flag of his country, and
he could hear the shout of his com
rades fighting for what they believed
was just. 0 how he must have hated
to leave them to fight that battle alone
?this gallant, glorious, and devoted
"Lauies and gentlemen, if I were to
ask you to-night the question, 'What
is the greatest passiou of life?' you
would answer, 'The passion to live.'
Men ca.-t away at sea, when starving,
cat iheir comrades to live. London
swarms with its hundreds of thousands
who lead a life of immeasurable mise
cry, but who do not want to die,
though the Thames flows by and kind
ly invites them to jump in and end
their misery. Men live in dungeons,
away under the ground, in slime, and
yet when they hear the tread of the
turnkey in the corridor their souls
quake for fear he may be coming to
sa>, 'You must die.' But this young
man, who had everything to live for,
whose very soul was full of life?this
splendid young knight of the soul?
said: 'If I had a thousand lives to
give, I would give them all before I
would do what you ask me to do?'
"Ladies and gentlemen, tbe story of
Sam Davis will never die, and will
never cease to be told. Listening
senates will hear the grand story; the
camp fires will repeat it in the armies
of the government; the school teach
ers in thousands of schools will recite
the beautiful and patbetio story to
the young boys and girls, who will
listen with tender and wondering eye.
Some Livy, like the Roman Livy, will
put it in imperishable history. Yea,
some Homer will yet be born in these
Southern States?when the south
again turns her attention to the
things that are really 'great?will
strike with fingers of genius the harp
to the great demand, and will produce
another Iliad, and in that grand epic
the brightest pages will be the story
of this young man's heruic death.
"Yea, he will never die, for he will
be enshrined in earth's grandest pan
theon, the human heart, and on its
splendid wall his ohaplet of laurel and
immortelles will be higher than all the
rest. Take all the heroes who bled
for the South in the oivil war; let
them come from every field of battle;

Lee, he that was made in God's own
image if ever man was (applause); call
up Sydney Johnson from the bloody
field of Shiloh, who, like one of Ossi
an's beroes, with his finger pointed to
victory, and with the fierce South
cheering on her sons, call him up;
call Stonewall Jackson, the lightning
bolt of tho battlefield, that man who
earnestly raised his hand to the God
of battles on the day of battles; oall
up Joseph E. Johnston, the darling of
the Tennessee army (applause); call
up the tall chieftain who sleeps by
the banks of the Mississippi, Bedford
Forrest (applause), listening to the
song of a spirit kindred of his own;
pass them in review; let the world
look, as the world never looked be
fore, at this splendid pageantry! Who
is it that will attraot every eye? What
is it that will bring the tears and the
look of pity to every face? Who is
that riding by? Who is it, in his
gray, ragged jacket that is riding by,
with his whole neck and bosom wreath
ed with a chain of gold instead of a
hangman's rope? It is Sam Davis,
the most famous of them all, for he
died for p.inciple and that his friend
might live. (Applause)
"\*et Sam Davis will never die.
His magnificent act connected him
forever, linked him forever, with that
greatest One, who, upon the out

his great trust, and died for man.

"Never did there rest over a people
a darker, heavier gloom than spread
over Pulaski that day. The doors and
windows of every house was closed.
All hearts, were sad and all eyes wore
weeping. Well do I remember lying
down on a bed and covering up my
head with a pillow, to try to shut out
the sound of the fife and drum by
which they were marching to the gal
lows. Many of the common Boldiers
and officers boldly stigmatised it as
murder. General Sweeny was ex
tremely sympathetic. In the after
noon after the execution iu the morn- I
ing lie made a visit to Rev. Mr. Cald
well, of the l'resbyterian Church, and
expressed himself very freely about
it. lie walked the floor with his fist
clenched in the most exicitcd manner,
and denounced it in the strongest
language, saying that it was "an out
rage, an everlasting stigma on the
United States." He said: "Vou talk
about marts'n and heroes, this is the
greatest martyr, the grandest hero,.
the bravest man that ever died." I
shall as long as life lasts honor Gen
eral Sweeny's memory for speaking
those brave and noble words for Sam
General Dodge, in sending his check
to help build a monument to this
humble Confederate soldier, tells of
his earnest efforts to save the life of
"little Sam Davis," from the conse
quences of his raid and detection, and
says he had never seen a nobler speci
men of humanity than he found
clothed in that "little gray jacket."
"H. T. C," of Clevelaud, O., my
warm personal friend, writes: "Your
favor aud a copy of the Confederate
Veteran at hand, and I thank you for
calling my attention to the true he
roism and brave self-sacrificing act of
Sam Davis, in giving his life rather
than betray a trust. I, a Federal sol

noble Davis, thank you for giving me I
an opportunity to become a contribu
tor to the fund you mention, and I j
enclose my check for $25.for the
The writer of the above, a gallant
Federal soldier, also contributed $100
to the Winnie Davis monument fund.
I regret that his modesty places me
under obligation to withhold his name.
Who gave the fatal papers to Sam
Davis will probably always remain a
mystery, as he gave up his life rather
than betray the trust. It has been
generally supposed that he received
them from his superior officer, Shaw,
alias Coleman, who was oaptain of the
scouts of which Davis was a member,
and who was also a prisoner at the
time, under an assumed name. This
view, however, may be negatived by
the young hero's steady reply to all
importunities, "I gave my word I will
die rather than break it." It is not
likely that his captain could have pro
cured such papers (maps of fortifioa- I
tions, statistics of the Federal army, I
etc.,) except through the assistance of
some officer or member of that army,
end it may be that Sam Davis died to
save the life of one who wore the uni
form of an enemy. But he went to
his death with the seoret locked in
his breast, and a mystery it must re-1
main till the last final trump.
The remaining men of Shaw's or I
Coleman'a soouts, after his capture
and that of Sam Davis and others, I
were transferred to Captain Shannon,
General Wheebr's ohief scout. Among
the latter were several Alabamiano I
from my regiment, some Tennesseeano I
and Georgians, and I have already I
i told of some of their deeds of daring,
and of their service to their oountry.
Of oourse I make no claim that Sam
Davis belonged to Wheeler's Cavalry
for, as I have said before, the name
and the fame of such a man belongs to I
no one command, no one army, and no
one oountry, but glorifies the manhood
of the world.
