The Stale's readers will DO doubt be
iutorcBted to learn that ic the last
battle cast of tho Mississippi-of the
War Between the Sections as well as
in thc first, South Carolinians had
active and noblo part.
The last battle was thc ooo fought
at West Point, Georgia, on Sunday,
April 16, 1805, just one week after
Lee's surrender. But the telegraph
linen were all down, and the brave
boys in gray from South Caroline,
Georgia and Louisiana, who formed
the garrison of Fort Tyler, situated on
a bluff overlooking the purling waters
of the Chattahooohee, knew not that
the star of the Confederacy had gone
down to rioo no more. Noither had
the federal troops, operating in the
vicinity, received aught of knowledge
concerning the surrender.
Fort Tyler was at this period com
manded by Maj. Gen. Robt. C. Tyler,
an intrepid Tennessoean, from whom
the fort reocived its natne.% General
Tyler had been wounded at the hattie
of Chiokamauga, and was on crutches
at tho time of the federal attack upon
the fort. A large portion of the gar
rison o? Fort Tyler on this April day
of 1865 consisted of tho West Point
militia, elderly men and boya, but
each proved ere that day was done
that the heart of a hero beat in his
breast, dospite the pbysioal weakness
of old ago and tho natural timidity
of youth. The only really trained
soldiers were those of White's battery,
from Colombia, S. C., and 12 men be
longing to Point Doupee battery of
Louisiana or of Mississippi-the
reoords are not very elear on this
point. Only 120 men were in the
garrison r and there were only 85 mus
kets of all sorts, sizes end conditions.
The fort contaiued one siege gun, a
32-poundor, and two that were 12
ponndors. This was the condition of
affairs, when near to noon of April 16,
1865, 3,750 of as fine oavalry men as
the federal service eould produce esme
steadily on the march down the rail
way irom the direotion of Opelika,
and after a series of manoeuvers pre
cipitated themselves in fierce attaok
upon the fort.
It was a beautiful spring Sabbath
day, the skies blao, the sunshine
golden, the birds singing, and the
bells pealing out their chimes, sum
moning the worshippers to church.
But soon above the birds' songs and
.the sweet notes of the bells came the
boom cf c?scs and tbs hearse shouts
of men ia the shook of conflict.
The federal troops were lu command
of Gol. La,. Grange. Almost at the
beginning of the battle a well direoted
shot from the fort brought down his
boree. Fer some mome?te thereafter
there was considerable confusion in
the f?d?rai ranks, but soon the ?ttaok
waa ranAwed with even greater via*
For nearly seven hours the unequal
conflict was waged, the battle of 3,750
federal oavalry men splendidly mount
ed and equipped* with every modern
appliance of warfare against the 120
Confederates, more than one-half of
them old men and boys, and with not
enough weapons to supply one for
eaoh man. Not until the PU. munition
of. the fort gave out did the fort sur
render. The federal commander, who
proved himself both a broad-minded
and a generous foe, afterwards de
clared that in all the annals of the
war there had not como to ?his knowl
edge anything so oonspiouous in brav
ery as this unequal contest. He, fer
along time refused to believe that

gun mounted upon the ?restera ram
part of the fort. Col. James H.
Fannin, who had arrived to take com
mand when Capt, Gonzales fell mor
tally wounded, noticed young Webb
Btanding by his gun, a 12-pounder,
and striking the end of tho ram rod
with an axe. Col. Fannin asked him
what he was doing. Ko replied that
the bail had stuck, and that he was
seeking to drive it home. In anothor
movement he swung out from behind
the gun in his effort to drive the axe
against the ram rod with such force
as to dislodge the ball, and in thai
moment a shot from the enemy
brought him down fatally wounded.
Lieut. Waddell, of whose daring old
West Pointers love to speak, seeing
Webb fall, and noting the condition of
the gun, at onoe sprang to the exposed
platform, and, with the assistance of
two other brave fellows, rolled the gun
to a less exposed position. He then
prooeded to have the fiction primer
out and to put wet clothes on the gun

Lieut. Self, also of Whites' battery,
was another South Carolina hero of
the battle of Fort Tyler. During the
hot test part of the enemies' fire, be
stood up to get better aim. He was
at once ordered to lie down. He did
so, but not until a ball had grated
him. At that moment a boy came
with a oap full of minie balls. Self
seised and threw a part of them into
the gun. Then, with a wad of paper,
be began ramming the gun. As he
did so his hand was exposed above the
barrel of the gnn. A ball pierced it.
Only for an inssant did he flinch.
Then, with the hand dripping blood,
he continued ramming the charge
home, aimed the gan and fired.
