Editor Greenville News:
iSolely with a view cf keeping t^e
rccord straight, 1 ho:;e you will allow
me to correct <.n error in your notice
of the death of Col. R. B. Ligon, in
your issue of tiiD 20th, in say in j; he |
was at one time coloncl cf the 3rd i
I have no doubt Col. Ligon wa~> a j
brave and meritorious soldier. But 1
I don't think he was at any time a i
member of the 3rd regiment.
His name appears cn the ConfoJor- j

3rd S. C. Bat. which was a part of
Kershaw's brigade frcm a short while
after the battle of "Boonesboro"
(Federal "South. (Mountain") to the !
close of hostilities. .Upon inquiry, j
since this notice, I learn that he held !
the rank of colonel in command of
the 4th regiment of State troops, in j
the l"5t days of the confederacy, on
the sea coast, and being forced to
retire, on account of ill health, was
succeeded by Col. John W. Ferguson
of Laurens. ^
The 3rd regiment was one of the
regiments called for by Gov. Pickens,

ordinance, and going on to Manassas

the "Army of the Potomac," (afterwards
"Army of Northern (Virginia.")

by Milledge L. Bonham, afterward by i
