The inscriptions on the monument
are as opposite as they are admirable,
and will be read with interest by the
young and the old, the gentle 'and th'e
strong. There should be a roll prepar
ed, containing the name of every son
of Clarendon who served in the Con
federate army, or in the Confederate
navy. This should be placed in the
court house, in order that future gen
eratins could see how nobly the youth
and manhood of liberty loving Claren
don responded to the call of Carolina,
and followed the path of duty to the
post of danger. It Is a duty we owe
the memory of our dead heroes, and
the patriotic and praiseworthy work
should be done under the auspices of
the Daughters of the Confederacy, and
of the Sons of Confederate Veterans.
The cost would not amount to much,
and I am confident it would cheerfully
be paid by, the public spirited people.
Some years ago my knightly com
rades of the Army of Northern Virgin
Ia, CoL. David W. Brailsford,--One of
four brothers who served with credit
and courage in the Confederate Army,
and were severely wounded-invited
me to visit Clarendon. i Unfortunately
I was unable to accept the valued in
vitation. If I had come here the at
tractions would have been so great
and irrreslstable, that probably I
should have remained and become a
citien of Clarendoni perhaps have had
the good fortune to persuade one of
the charming creatures to accompany
me to Charleston, to brighten and
bless my humble home. I shall have
to remain unmated, and consequently
unhappy. The veterans before me have
a hearty, healthy look, for they have
sweet fond ones to cheer and to charm
Clarendon not only sent her share of
companies to distant and deadly fields,
but her high minded and heroic sons
erved in many other companies.
-Of the splendid organizations which
rallied around the "Bonnie Blue Flag,"
and intrepidly fought, I recall the
company commanded by Capt. William
Elliott Keels, known as Co. "I"' of the
Second Regiment of South Carolina
Volunteers; this company was present
when the first shot of the war for
Southern Independence was fired in
Charleston harbor. After the capture
of Fort Sumter the command was dis
banded; the members promptly join
ing other organiations, with which
they bravely fought.
The Manning Guards was organized
early in ,1861. The gallant Capt.
Brown Manning was the commander
of that fine and fearless company. It
was known as Co. "C" of the far fam
ed Legion, raised and commanded by
the illustrious and dauntless Gen.
Wade Hampton. There was not a
braver or better company in the Army
of Northern Virginia.
The "Sprott Guards" was named in
honor of one of the most public-spirit
'ed and valued citizens of Clarendon.
-Although aged, and an invalid, he
-took great interest in the welfare of
-the true and courageous men in the
army, and spent much of his means
in equipping the command. It became
- Co. "I" of the celebrated 23rd Regi
11 ment, that served faithfully in almost
-jevery Army of the Confederacy; sur
rendering its few surviving members,
1with the remnant of the Army of
Northern Virginia. The first command
er of the Sprott Guards was Capt.

camp of Confederate veterans has
properly been named in honor bf Col.
Benbow, who was an accomplished
and a brave officer. The company
found a worthy successor to Capt.
Benbow, in Capt. Henry H. Lesesne,
whose promotion to Major was as mer
ited as he was fearless and capable;
as he was esteemed by the gallant
men with whom he served. The third
commander of the Sprott Guards was
that intuitive soldier and an able of
ficer. Capt. William J. R. Cantey, who
heroically made the last human sacri
le at the explosion of the "Crater,"
"Wheeler's Company"' beqame Co
"C" of the fighting 6th Regiment. It
worthily upheld the martial renown
of Carolina on many a battle field. The
genial, undaunted Maj. Capt C. S.
Land, was promoted Major for the
Regiment for "distinguished gallantry
on the field."
Capt. John S. Whitworth, a brave
and devoted soldier, orgaized a com
pany, it seems, did not remain a dis
tinct organization throughout the war;
having been, absorbed in other com
panies. The men were fearless and
Clarendon' and Sumter have always
een 'closely united, both b~y border
ad in brotherhood, and the well
nown command, Co. "D" one of the
ost famous of Regiments, the Sec
nd: was composed of intrepid and
etermined men from Clarendon and
from Sumter .districts. Its Captain
as the courageous and skillful John
Capt Alfred Bland's company be
ame Co. "B" of the veteran and- dar
ug Sixth Regiment. In the ranks of
tis fine and dashing company were
eroes from .both Sumter and from
laredon. Capt. Bland was an ad
nirable and a gallant oricer.
There was a splendid cavalry com
pany from Clarendon in the celebrated
Fifth Regiment, and It followed the
fag of Hampton and of Butler on
any a famous battle field. It was
Co. "H" of that mounted commad.
and was commanded by Capt. Joseph
Skinner,, as brave a man as ever weid
d a sabre, and his men rode as boldiy
o danger and to death, as did the "Im
ortal Six Hundred.".
Some of the sons of Clarendon serv
ed in the spirited and daring Rutledge
ounted Riflemen, and in other fear
less and meritorious Cavalry w~om
ands, and did their duty heroically.
It Is a source of regret to me, and
f course a disappointment to you,
that I have not been able to do even
elementary justice to the loved living
and the lamented dead of Clarendon's
heroes. Their names are among our
proudest and most precious memories.
Throughout the warp and woof of
our battle flag-which if furled in de
feat, was never lowered in dishonor
there is interwined the fame of the
soldiers of Clarendon, and their life
blood dyed that flag a deeper red. I
touch the sacred folds of "the flag that
is furled," as tenderly as a mourning
mother imprints the last kiss of affec
tion on the cheek of her dear, dead,
The women of the South have shed
many tears of sorrow over the Starry
Cross of Confederacy, but with these
tears of sorrow, thank God, and I say
it with due reverence, there has not
been one tear of shame.
Our flag was baptized in blood at
Manassas, July the 21st, 1861; the
blood of the flower and the pride of the
South, and among the heroes who went
grandly down to death that day, were
gallant spirits from Clarendon. Of the
number I recall Lieut. John Haynes
worth, Samuel Stokes, John Rhame,
Gus. Richbourg and Henry Tindal;
they were among the first soldiers of
the South to fall fighting for her liber
ty. Clarendon district, long the nur
sery of heroes, lost hundreds of others
in that memorable struggle in defence
of hearth and home.
Peace to their crimson shrouds;
ever honored be their memory.
How striking and familiar is your
manly figure, soldier of the South.
Mute and melancholy are the lips
which used to express words of hope
and cheer when we were weary or
wounded; pale are the cheeks that
nce glowed with the crimson hue of
ealth: that we so often saw wreathed
in the curl of battle smoke, and pulse
less is the brave breast that ever
throbbed with lofty and generous
emotions, until stilled in death.
