"LAST SHOT OF CIVIL WAR."
Another Intea'esting Letter by Mr.
Welborn on This Subject.
But for lack of opportunity I
would have written this little article
long ago, and my say will be in ref
erence to that memorable "last shot
of the Civil War." Mrs. J. R. Van
(liver, of Anderson, is gathering data
for a history which she is writing of
Anderson county and she wishes it as
authentic as possible. In the issue
of The Sentinel of February 24th,
an article was clipped from the An
derson Daily Mail, written by Mrs.
Vandiver, of .which I made some cor.
rections; for which in a conmunica
tion I received her thanks. I heart
ily endorse Mrs,, Vandiver's .great
undertaking; for ont reason, I first
saw the light in that eggat' county.
In the issue of The Sentin .,of March
17th Mr. C. T. Martin wQte an
article on this subject in whclk I
think h: made some mistakes. Mr.
Martin admits not becoming a citi
zen of South Carolina for nearly
nine years after the close of
the Civil War. The Turner's Hill
skirmish he refers to, I remember
well. It was' between Manse Jolly
and his band of Ku Klux or White
Cappers as you may term them, and
I a band of horse thieves. This oc
curred several (lays after the Federal
troops had passed through and .had
the first (lay of May fight at the
Thomas Moore home west of Pied
mont. Mr. N. B. Moore, son of
Thomas Moore, who is quite familiar
with all of those circumstances, has
promised to write an article for Mrs.
Vandiver, giving the correct details
leading up to this first (lay of May
fight. His health has been bad or I
he would have written this article
before now. Mr. Martin refers to
the last fight as being at Turner's
Hill. That is a new point on the
map of Pickens county. I never
heard of it before. Perhaps he re
fers to the Starling Turner place
near the Easley bridge, now the es
tate of the late J. S. Lathem. The
Yankees did burn Starling Turner's
house after being ambushed by his
sons and a bunch of their friends.
This was done by one of the main
columns of Yankee troops as they
passed through to Anderson. It seums
after crossing the 1l3ue Ridge they
divided int) three columnjis. One

burned Dr. EdenI's dwvelling, corn
crib andl smoke house. In this con~j
flagration Dr. Edens lost not only h is
dIwelling and contents, but a vast
Iquantity of bacon, lard, corn, fodder
and other forage which produced a
dense smoke andl scent of burning
bacon andl lard which could be seen
alnd smelled all over the surrounding
country. After that Dr. Edens built
'a brick dwelling, nowv occupied by ex
1Audlitor E. Foster. That night the
Yankees camped at thie home of
Samel hapana prominenit farm
er and father of the late county
treasurer Samuel D). Chapman. Mr.
IChapman had a Ia r':* quantity of
corn andl fodder and they fed and
dlestroyed most all he had, besides
they ate and carried away most all
of his meat, and near Cross Roads
church they came to the home of the

her son, George, and then wvent on
