OF THE CONFEDERACY
THE TWO ORGANIZATIONS JOINBD IN
A RECEPTION TUESDAY BYENING.
T4e Veterans Were Honored Guests-An
Interesting and Inspiring Program
Was Carried Out.
Most of them who yet survive
are fast approaching the brink of
the river which flows between time
and eternity- the heroes in gray
who, in e morning of their lives,
fresh with hope and confident ir a
courage inspired by principle bor in
of truth and justice, went forth to
battle for Southern rights; whose
noon-tide dazzled a world with its
kindling glory; whose eveni'ig, ush
ered upon then in the deep gloom
which enshrouded Appomattox, has
been spent and is now being spent
in the work of building a new South
upon the ruins of the old-a new
South, retaining all that was noblest
and sweetest in the old, and yet an
inseparable part of are united coun
try which is today leading the
world in material progress and in
all the arts and sciences.
It is well for the future of the
Southland and of the American na
tion, it is well for the valor of
American arms and the glory of
American achievements, that their
deeds shall not be forgot, that their
children have determined that the
memory of the days from '6r to 65,
and from '65 to '76 shall ever be
fresh and cherished sweetly. It is
due them and due the future; for
there is no brighter page in the his
tory of nations than was writ by
the struggle of the Southern legions,
and the record of a great people'E
glorious past can but inspire theii
children to noble endeavous and

Mr. John M. Kinard, Division
Commander of the South Carolina
Division of Sons, was introduced
and made an address pleading for
earnest 'vork among the Sons and
Daughters, for loyalty to the cause,
and closing with an appe'l for ear
nest effort in the work of the erec
tion of a monument to the women
of the South.
Commander Kinard said that this
joint meeting of the Daughters and
Sons had been suggested, he be
lieved by the Sons, in order that
they might in sonic measure at least
imbibe the enthusiani and activity
that had charcterized the Daugh
No chapter of the Daughters of
the Confederacy, no camp of the
Sons of Veterans, lie said, would
amount to more than the rain-bow
after the storm-beautiful, but soon
vanished-if it had not a distinct
and positive object and pursued that
object persistently and vigorously.
We must see to it that there is no
further perversion of the history of
the war. Already the school books
our children study have the North
ern setting of history and it nov
seems that the last act of recon.
struction may be the distortion ol
history under the ruthless lines of
the conqueror's pen. We must see
to it that no surviving Confederate
soldier shall spend the remnant of
his days in want of the necessities
of life, it is a sad reflection upon
the young manhood of this genera
tion that they are so lax in interest
and allegiance to the blessed cause
for wvhich our fathers fought so
nobly and died so willingly. Are
we not untrue to tihe high and noble
heritage of our ancestors if we (10
not band ourselves together with
hooks of steel to perpetuate the
valor and heroism of tihe Confedler

a conspiracy of leaders. It was not
a rebellion. It was a revolution in

they dared to maintain it by the

every son and dPighter to uphold
the uncoiqueert, undefiled prin

None fell so pure of crime."
Before I close let me make one

It is to build one more monument
