* One Iridred years after that in lei,
a bloodless revolution* oceturred in
South Caroluia, wh4ch was 'just as im
portant in its rciutltts to our owI Iteo
plo and State, which has not een
written about and is fading fast from
memory, a- thoje who took part in its
enaqtimont are passing away. At your
request I have jOtted down my recol
lections of tbe incidents occuring in
that, campaign hoping the y might in
struct land interest you, for tile State
was then submitting to "tiaxation with
out representation" and "contril)uting
millions for revenue."
The -i Tpublicans obtaintied possession
of the State provernment in INtis by the
elecAon of it. K. Scott as governor,
and the other ollices were filled w iLth
carpiet bitggers and scalawags a1nd ne
g roes. Scott was s icceeded by F. .1.
Moses, Jr., and a eon diLion of corru p
tion and incompjetence provailed whichi
was never equalled in any goveiIIt(Ai.
Cham berlain followed in IST-I and
while lie was personally honest, he
was surrounded by such a set of Lbicvez
that weulation permeated every de
partnient of the State Lovern meint.
Tihe bonded debt of the State hadl in
creased from about six million doil lars
to over twenty-sevi;n million itt these
seven years, notwithstantding the fact
that taxes were increased year by year
until they becamo unbearable. The
[Iouse of Representatives composed of
126 i members in 187-1 5 had about
twenty-four Democrats, about ten
white I t1publicis and the balance ne
groc;, the Speaker being a blavk, cor
rutA mnd insolent negro natted E.jiott.
The white people of the State were
becoming very restless under the dom
inAtion of the nogio and earpet bag

stupendous undertaking It was in 187i
to th'row off this yoke of tyranny and
despottism. The negroes had more than
two votec-to thbo w9hte people's one.
All the uflices from Governor to con
stable were in their hands, including
all the election machintery of the State.
Elvery otlicer in the Fecderal gover-n
ment was not only an avowed .tjpub
Ilecan but an ardent partisan, and thie
str-ong arm of the government as rep
resented by ilitary garrisonts were
scattered all over the whole State.
Many of our owni 1people beliieved it
would be imutossible to succeed anid
that an c ifort, would hut incite the opi
pressor's to tighton the thumtscrews.
Under such cirecumstances you can
understand that the stanudar-d bear-ers
should possess above every otier qlual-1
Iiicat,-on,..cour-age and determination.1

never- had a body of ollicors, taon as a
yvhole, of htigher courauge,: sense of
