PATRIOTIC CITIZEN, NOBLE AND M,
WAS THE LATf COL. A. W. BURNSIDE
(By a Comrade.)
U would bo imposlble In the limit,
?cd Hpace I shall take to do Justice to
?%e subject of this Imperfect sketch.
''*he meoeage on last Saturday morn
ing that Colonel Allen W. Burnside
'tad died the night previous carried
Vudneas to the hearts of all who knew
J-.mi and excited profound sympathy
?or those near and dear to him. He
\"as stricken with appoplexy at 7
''. M. Friday and died at 2 A. M.
Saturday morning, Jauuary 8th. Had
9i?l lived uuttl the 28th of this month
"he would have beeu 76 years of age.
He was born and reared in the
V/arrlor Creek section of Laurcus
?:'junty and very early In young man
b*>od his lovable traits of character
d*ew from his fellowmen that esteem
K-nd admiration that lead to his pre
ferment and elevation to positions of
honor and trust. Very few men with
tn our knowledge came so near of
having the Bupport and approval of all
men. As soon as old enough he was j
- lected Captain, under the old mill-!
V*a organization, prior to the war.
?'e then rose rapidly to the colonelcy
of the Upper Battalion, 41st, S. C.
The great war between the sections
r.atue on in the early days of 1S61 and
i?t the organization of the first troops
?nder the cull for ten regiments of
?infantry, Burnside was elected First
lieutenant of the "Laurens Briars."
f which company R. P. Todd was
? aptain, greatly beloved by every man
in his company and serving with dis
vinctlon from the hirst Mannassas
:t) the famous "Seven Days Rattles",
?e was severely wounded on the field
if Savage Station. Juno 20. 1862.
Disabled by his wounds he resigned,
Having sufllclently recovered he again,
luring the autumn of 1862, entered
'.no service as Lieutenant In Company
B, 3rd S. C. Bat.. Which had in the
meantime been attached to Korshaws
rlgade, in which brigade the Laurcus
?riars, as.a part of the 3rd Regiment,
Tad served from the beginning. He
?ose to the command of the'company
i nri was ranking ofllcer ill command
if the Third Battalion at the time of
ila consolidation with the Third Regi
ment; a very short while before the
ommand surrendered at Greensboro,
The writer knew him as Well, per
>ips as any one now living. I knew
b|hl first at a country school; bel?g
? onsiderable younger and a mere boy.
? recall very little of the period. It
? ?as not until thrown with him in the
Irring, trying times of the first year
, f the war, while we were members
?>f the same company, that I leaj-ned
to know and love him, as I know every
member of his old company did. Ev
ery man of the thin gray line of sur
vivors of the great struggle, Will join
i this humble tribute to his memory.
Modest, affable, always avoiding con
?Mition or offensive dispute and pos
I Hessing in the highest degree that
flue attribute which prompts consider
ation and respect for the opinions and
I feelings of others, no matter how hum
j ble or lowly they may be, led some
who did not know him thoroughly,
to attribute to him want of opinion,
decision, or Belf assertion. No great
er mistako could have been made.
! Those who ever entertained such opin
ions had not had the opportunity to
learn that beneath that modest, un.
assuming and pleasing exterior, there
wns a plenty of Are and force of re
sistance and self assertion when some
questions of right or wrong, or crls
ises of serious import confronted the
community or country.
I have seen the genial-faced lovable
gentleman, Allen Burnside, transform
ed in a raging line in battle, not los
ing his presence of mind, but while
his boys were falling all around him,
with sword pointing to the enemy,
and with face lighted up with the fire
of battle, he urged on his line.
Returning from war, he lived on
his farm until the overthrow of the
I reconstruction regime in South Caro
lina (in which overthrow he bore a
[conspicuous part) when he was elect
ed to the ofllce of Probate Judge,
which ho held for fourteen years.
Sinco hit> retirement he has lived
! In Greenville City and latterly in
Augusta, Gn.. with his son-in-law and
daughter. Mr. and Mrs. .lames R.
I Cooper. Of his immediate family Mrs.
Ilattie Cooper and Miss Bessie Burn
side alone survive.
.Mrs. Burnside and throe sons died
several years ago and were buried
at Greenville City, where Col. Burn
side's remains were laid to rest on
One more loving father and loyal
friend gone: one more good citizen
gone; one more of as true and brave
soldier as ever loved and eared for
his lane tooted soldier boys in bivouac
or march over frozen ground languish
ing in fevered wards or flashed sword
in the face of insolent foe. "By their
fruits ye shall know them."
To claim for any one Immunity
from fault or mistake, would be to
claim more than mortals ever knew,
I but if, to have a long life of self-ab
negation, of freedom from guile, of
love to fellowman, as a consistent
J member of the church from early life,
] and In short, in the practice of those
virtues and graces, that adorn Chris
tian character and conserves the high
est interests or huinantiy. and that
would refuse any intimation of inten
tion wrong doing be evidences of a
Christian life, then our comrade, who
! has just fallen, on the firing line, must
i have found that city which he has
long sought, reserved for the faithful
Of ?U ages, and whose builder and
maker is God.
