me, "Son, you are going down into
Lexington county to begin your life
work. I want you to hunt up one of
my old comrades, Capt. J. H. Oounts,
who is down there, and I want you to
always be a friend to him. I know
he will be a friend to you.'" This is
no more than he would have said of
each of you. He was faithful to you
as fellow soldiers and was always
glad to ting your praise. As to his
character, honor, and bravery, I leave
for you to attest. As to Capt. Counts,
I always found him a true gentleman
and friend-a man faithful to his
trust, his friend. his country. his
church. and his God. Having known
you veterans. for years, I can say as
much for you. We all delight to pay
our feeble tribute to you survivors of
the greatest struggle ever recorded in
history. Not many years will elapse,
when all the survivors of the Confed
erate army of America from South
Carolina, will have been .ja.. to rest
beneath the soil of this and other
states, and most of them beneath the
soil of this grand old "Palmetto"
State. for which they loved and
fought so well.'
You are not cowards, traitors and
"rebels," but you are true noblemen,
honored patriots. This concourse of
people crowd here today to join with
your wives, your sons and daughters,
to rejoice in pride with them, and to
show you every honor and respect.
The men of South Carolina have al
ways been knightly, gallant and
brave, and have always responded to
every call to duty. In the Revolu
tionary struggle more battles were
fought on her soil than all other
states combined. South Carolina has
her share of the praise in all, the In
dian wars and history shows that she
did her duty well. In the Florida war
her men were the first on duty and
many. sacrificed their lives from bat
tle, fever and exhaustion. Is the Mex
ican war hers was the first play to
float over the walls of Mexi
co. In all these wars, she furnished
three times as many men as any oth
er state. This grand old ''Palmetto''
State has produced many heroes, al
ways to strike down the hand of the
In 1861, when the toesin of war was
~-sounded, you volunteered of your own
volition. You entered and were ready
to defend that great and fatal cause,
but a cause based on constitutional
grounds. You bivoueked and tented
on the fields of your own ''Palmet
to'' State. You went into the -camp of
instruction, you went under the most
eneouraging circumstances. Thrilled
-with all the inspiration our women
could give, who buckled on the shield
of valor and the sword of defence.
Your mothers, your daughters and
sweethearts floated cheering banners
to the breezes and hollored, ''Hur
rah, for home, property and native
land!'' Endowed with such courage,
The abolition of slavery has proven
a great blessing to the south, but it
cost us dearly. History records no
more desperate struggle than that of
the war in which you fought, and you
were left a shattered remnant of a
once powerful army, worn out by fa
tigue, hunger, disease a.nd battle.
Without supplies, confronting. line
after line, of well-clad, well-fed and
well-equipped men. ~That you con
fronted these odds, is attested by the
fact that you left mony of your num
ber. on the field of bat-tle and buried
beneath iVrginia 's soil, and the few
that returned to tell the tale, and the
number ot arms stacked at Appomat
During the four years of the war,
the north mustered into service 2,
800,000 soldiers, while the s.outh was
not able, after taking all the boys and
old men, to count more than 550,000;
so you were not whipped, but simply
over-powered. The ''(Cause'', wheth
er right or wrong, was illumined by
deeds of desperate valor in battle, of
consummate skill, matehless fortitude,.
and patient endurance of retreat,
sickness, nakedness and hunger.
The National Government has fur
nished millions of money to the living
and dead warriors of the north by pen
sions, and by erecting vast monu
ments to their dead. Some time last
year. while on a trip to Baltimore and
New York. where I went to make
some professional and post-graduate
studies, I decided to stop over in
Washington. the great capital and
seat o.f our government, and after
viewing the city and numerous gov
enent buildings and all the parks.
etc.. which are the pride of our coun
try and government, as Washington
is~ a beautiful city, I decided to go
down to Mt. Vernon, the home and
buri place of George Washington,
the Father of our C-ntrv. This is a
beautiful place, and thrills one, as lie
looks at the magnificence of thel
place, and its natural location, and
shows what an eye to the beautiful
Washington had, and thrills one with
patriotic feelings, as he studies all
that he sees there. I then was caught
with the idea that I wanted to go and
see Arlington Heights, Lee's old
home, and I went. I think this the
most beautiful natural home on earth,
and the choice of it displayed, to me,
the character and grandness of the
man in civil life, and as a military
man. Nature lavished on this spot a
full share of her natural beauty of
scenery. Looking across the Poto
mae, you get a beautiful view of the
capital and the natural trees, etc. and
the grounds that surround this place
are as fine as nature ever produeed.
There too, one on reflection, could seel
portrayed the magnificence of the
shining character of this great Pat-I
riot and soldier. You would naturally
think of great men and soldiers, you
might think of battles; you might
think of Alexander and Napoleon, or
Karathon and Thermopoli of ancient
times. But vividly will be portrayed
to y.)u Gen. Lee, the greatest military
haracter of the world.
But what did I find here, where
beautiy, magnificence ana happiness
>nce ruled sapreme? This magnificent.
)ld palatial residence is turned now
nto an art gallery, and on the walls
are hung the pictures of all the ted
mrals generals and enemies of Lee and 1
is and your cause. These beautiful,
grounds are turned into a national
emetery, where thousand of fed
rals are buried, and the functions
re so changed, that it seems to me
hat all nature vied with the breezes
ind the swaying boughs of the mag
aificent trees here, and every, thing
eemed to east a rebuke to the na
ional government, for the desecra
:ion of this spot, which is kept up I
vy the government, and it so
vrought up my hot Southern blood,
hat I felt like tearing down from the
valls the pictures of Sherman, Grant
d others. and kicking them out of:
loors. But then, when I walked outi
.n the grounds and cemetery, where
he silent dead bear witness, I said,
'I am wrong.'' These dead and their
nonuments are the highest testimon
als which are kept in order by the
ational govermnient, of the honor,
~haracter, and bravery of our South
rn soMiiers, and it shows, that you
>ld veterans did your duty well, you
tought bravely for your rights, and
ou killed many a 'Blue-coat'' with
four shots, and scared many to death
svit:h your "Rebel Yells.'' Then I
said, "'All time will give you eredit
or your good work and bravery.''
rhe national government pays today

(though unintended) co'mpliment to
ais bravery and worth as a soldier,
nd is perpetuating the memory of

:his hallowed spot that is public to

The most sublimne spectacles in all
