majou ty thought different, coni w ,
come woe, they were in for the :-hr
without counting the cost, and he
pledged his life ana m all for ti
struggle, and the clank of Con::s
erutch as he ripped out his earnezt
words, tol the conNvrn-i,on he ni:ant
what he said.
Unity, 1:nion and -nassive defm
ation had con- :o the conVention. It
was nearly -> o'clock. Hampton, who
had stood ipart. and up to this time
had-not opened his mouth, except to
vote for the straightout movement,
'arose in the back of the hall. Talil,
rather slim (then), neatly dressed,
quiet and cool, and unassuming, he
strode to the front, held up his hand
and said in substance, that before the
vote was taken, he wished to ask the
members not to consider him person
ally, as he di(. not want the nomina
tion; to think well before acting; that
there were others whose names
would do more good, but that if they
said he must lead, that for the sake 1
of the old State, he would do so. He'<
left the hall. In a rew moments the']
unanimous nomination was made. His- I
tory had a bright page written on the 1
wall of radicalism, carpetbagism and! 1
scalawagism; it was in the air, mene,
The radical leaders had crowded in
the corridors during the secret ses-1
sion. Nash, Elliott, Cordoza, and the
sleek Tim Hurley, rushed in and felti
the density of the atmosphere.
No night sesion was held, but there
was no sleep in the city on the Con
garee that night. Two forces were
at work, without attracting attention,
away- up yonder in cotton town, a
torch light procession was formed;
long and sinvous it was. As it pass
ed down Main street and came to the
government building, its orifiame was
xeeognized in the person of that
knight, Col. Alexander Cheves Has-1
kell. He rode a coal black steed and
wore an immaculate white suit with
a black sl6uch hat. The crowd cried
in praise and enthusiasm; an im
promptu rostrum was erected on the
State house grounds (without permis
sion for erecting i.t), right under thei
window of Governor Chamberlain's
executive offices (it was said he was
in there during the meeting), and such
a meeting* and such portent, cool, de
termined, definant speechs! Theodore
G. Parker, of Charleston; George D.
Tillman, of Edgefield, and others, set]
the pace of the coming campaign. In]
*the hotels, the leaders of the dele- Ji
g~ates held caucuses how best to mold
*the ticket so as to arouse the people
to the fight. When the convention 1
met the . next morning all was unzity j
and fierce determination. Such \a'
ticket has never since and will never
again be put before our people. Hamp- 1
ton and Simpson, Conzner and*Hagood,
Simms and Leaphart, Moise and]
Thompson, all gone (but not forgot
ten, I hope), and -the fight was on to .
the "death. We went home. Then
came meetings at Newberry, led by 1i
Wyatt Aiken and James Lipscomb; at
Abbeville led iby Samuel McGowan and
James S. Cothran; at Midway led by1
G. D. Tillman, Gilmore Simms and 1
Fred Gantt; and the blood began to
~boi-l in eaTnest. The delegates had
spoken, it was the people's time now
The Campaign. 1
Trhose were not the days of electri
city, of telephones, of fast trains, of
night messages, and of automobiles,
but the elbow to elbow touch was]
felt; the heart to heart message of the -1
Anglo-Saxon was sent from Caesar's
Head to th.> Battery; from the tawney<
Savannah to the red washed Pee Dee,I
which produced an uprising, the like I
of which will never again as witnessed 1
in South Carolina.
The marchants had to buy extra in-i
Svoices of red fiannel to clothe the I
marching patriots. E'very county, ev- 2
ery town, every township, every ham-<
let, became a red hot bed of patriot-<
ism and enthusiasm. -It was no class<
or caste fight; the rich and poor alike <
vied with each other to ao something.1
The stalwart, and young rode and<
showed their power; the old encourag
ed them and gave their money. The
great silent power was the love and
devotion of the women to the cause.
They joined it not for show and dis
play, not simply .to be glorious and
wear ribbons (they did that fully be-]
cause they were not afraid to show
their colors), 'but to wrorE for the!
cause. When the boys would arise be
foire daybreak for long journeys,
breakfast was ready, lunches would be!
added to the outfits, and when the big
outpourings took place at the court
house, they came in droves to add to1
the occasion and serve meals to the
men. It was not simply the ladies of.
the towns and cities, Dut all the rural
districts as well, who took part in the
fight. All in all it was a revolt against
tyranny, the like of which had never,
been seen before; a tyranny sanctified
by law to humiliate the proud people
who had attempted to do what they
znought to be right, a humiliation
:Ieper di d than the afternath of the
French revolution; the placing in
power of people, not of the same race,
but sla:es, who were not prepared to
know the proper use of a ballot; the
ict beint; done not for the sake of the
;Iave, but for the aggrandizement of
his plitical masters, and the proud
naxoi race rose lke his ancestors in
:he early days and threw the yoke
aff of the! Norman master; like the
-olonies in 177- threw off the shack
es of the Royalist invaders who fol
[cwed them into a free country to
ieep them down-trodden. This revo
ution was not because of racial anti-:
pathy to the negro ,as such, but a re
olt against the efforts of the politi
ans at Washington to humiliate the
,hite people of South Carolina by
Aevating the negro above them. The
egal rights of the negro is recognized
ind enforced by the people of the
outh, but social equality by them will I
lever be tolerated.
And so the popular feeling bubbled!
ip as Hampton passed from the up
ountry to the low-country; from the
-ghlands to the lowlands, adown the
irrampian hills. It was like a Scot
ish fight in which all classes were
inited and taking part; the McDon
tids and the McGregors alike. When
he red banner was waved below Co-1
umbia, the. uprising was as great as
n Anderson as in Newberry. Busi
iess was suspended, homes abandon
d, occupations given up for the time
)eing; lawyers closed their offices and
ed; preaches prayed but joined the
)rocession; merchants sold their
;oods cheaper to the people and gave
heir money; farmers and mechanics
tud artisans left their occupations and
vere in the saddle. All were in it and
.o stay to the end, for it meant libertyv
>r death. A. paraphrase of the colon
al lines truly expresses the Red
'They left the plowshares in the mold,
he flocks and herds without a fold,
[he sickle in the unshorn grain,
rhe corn half garnered on the plain;
knd mustered in their red shirt dress,
Por wrongs, to seek a stern redress.
ro Tight those wrongs, come weal,
ro perish, or o'ercome their foe "
When Hampton reacned Blackville
n Barnweg county he was met by a
sohort of Rted Shirts from all the sur
ounding counties, headed by that
eerless citizen, Johnson Hagood, and
bey tramped with him across that
~reat county almost to the sea. The
;pirit of that procession is spok-en of
into today, as the greatest event of
>ld Barnwell county.
From across the Savannah cameI
~hat peerless Souther'ner, John B. Gor
on. He was the best stump orator
ever heard. At White Point Garden
n Charlesto'n, Gordon, before an im
nense crowd, in sci,thing terms, ar
aigned Chamlberlain as a Daniel come'
o .udgment. At Columbia, at Aiken
Lnd elsewhere he quickened and
troused the fires of patriotism as he
newarell how to do; and went home
o return again after the election, by
rise counsel, to assist in guiding the
sequel to full fruition.
rhe Result anli How It Came About.
The day of the election in Novem
>er was beautiful, but active. Though
nartial law had 'been declared by
rant in Edgefield, Aiken and Bran
ell, because of the Ellenton riot, and
erhaps in other counties, the deter
nined white men came home in their
ed shirts and tramped the land. Tne
Id saying, 'itll coons look alike" had
elped the negroes to repeat without
'ear of detection. Red shirts on men
nade them all alike, and the whites
iad been good students from sheer
ecessity. Under the Radical regime,
here was no regist'ration of voters
nd the managers were allowed three
lays before the boxes were tturned
>ver to the county canvassers for:
:ounting the votes. On this occasion,
Letermined white men, ~armed to the
eeth, accompanied the boxes and
~aped with them until ,the votes
It is true that a great many negroes
roluntarily voted the Hampton ticket;1
iumerous -names could be given; for
,xample, Billie Rose, the body ser
-ant of Maxcy Gregg, in Columbia;
enry Toole, in Rock Hill; Tom Wat
on, in Ridge Spring; Tom Hayne, in
iken; Caesar Chisolm, in Colleton,
tnd Democrat Riley, in Charleston.
Hampton was elected, but Cha.m-,
erlain and his men died hard.
It would take volumes to tell of the
mmediate sequel and its trials. The
;athering of determined, anxious,
;ired men in Columbia, bent on en
orcing their victory; the supreme
~ontrol and cool management of.
lamton under trials without num-;
er; the dual houses in session; the
lesertion of the sinking ship of Rad
edism by th.e rats; the forebearance:
a sedi reord of the Wallace
house; the legal fight in the courtZ
conducted by Col. Younians and Ger
The gathering of the investigatin;
committee from congress, seeking fo
evidence to sustain Chamberlain, an
the unrest to furnish for our side th
evidence of the right; the quarterin:
of the Unit,-d States soldiers in th
State house and their efforts by shov
of arms to intimidate our people; th
dragging of the Ellenton prisoners in
to the United States court at Charles
ton, and an attempt thereby to expos
the movement of the Democrats ii
the campaign. These and other sub
jects would take volumes to tell then
and they are left for another time, o
for other pens. Finally Hayes was in
augurated; Hampton was recognized
amnesty was granted federal an'
State prisoners, and the people be
gan to settle down to peace.
So it was. The Ret Snirt, Hampton
Gary, Butler revolution was a record
breaking epoch, making a turnint
point in the restless history of thi
grand old State. It brought about he:
rehabilament and disenthrallment an<
gave peace and honest, efficient an<
good government to a long-sufferin
people, and should be commemorate<
by the younger generation.
When in these times of peace an(
plenty the hungry for office quarrel ii
the Democratic primaries to the un
rest of the advancing, progressivi
masses, let that event be pointed t<
with pride as one in which love o
country and liberty was the rulin;
