UNVEILING AT MUSGROVE MILL
Deeds of Heroic Ancestors Recorded In Enduring Stone
by Daughters off American Revolution of Clinton.
A Memorable Day In the History off the County.
(Contributed b> Mrs. Mattle F.nst-Boll, Clinton, S. C.)
In taking note of the day, August 18, 1913, we chronicle the date of one
of the most interesting and enjoyable occaisons we have ever had the pleas
ire Ol :.'tending. It was unique and Impressive in every detail from the op
ening to the closing hour. An ideal day, with radiant dawning, no shadows
falling, nor clouds obscuring the glory of the morning. A large and repre
pontativo gathering had assom-bled promptly at the appoinlted hour, united
to manifest by their presence their appreciation of the noble work bleng
accomplished by the Musgrove Mill Chapter of the Daughters of the American
devolution, who had made possible the promised gladness of the day?
"Horn of tin- blood of the bravest
Who fought to give Freedom new birth,
They are the sweetest or gravost
Who serve at her altars on earth."
11' this beautiful Btanza there Is the portrayal of the true spirit that has
not falterod in an endeavor to bring to a finish this worthy achievement,?the
unveiling of the monument they have erected on the Musgrove Mill battle
ground. It was an undertaking that might have stagnered strong men. it
having to hi- hauled eight or ten miles over the hills and dales of the old
Musgrove road, which proved to be an arduous task, but on this day we
witnesses the consummation of their great effort.
Wi> find Mrs. .1. A. Bailey equal to tin- requirements evolving around her as
Regent, she Wearing the mantle of honor with cheerful grace and unassumed
dignity. In the capacity of her honored position she presided most happily,
The exercises were opened with prayer by Dr. W. P. .Jacobs, after he had
?poki a of the noble work thus being achieved, and of what It shall mean to
rising generations. Those memorials, adorning our country, fron, the slm
plosl marker to the most mngnifh ont mausoleum, certainly conveys this fact
that their existence bespeaks, in eloquent silence of a still greater existence.
They Stand as testimonials teaching us that "We can make our lives sub
lime, and departing leave behind us footprints on the sands of Time." Then"
came the presentation of Dr. Daniels, the orator of the day. He having failed
to lie able to obtain from history and other available sources sufficient
record of this battle on which to base his address he had chosen, instead,
another subject, "The Fighting Spirit." that he handled with masterful ease
ahd brilliancy. He spoke of the grand and powerful energy of soul that
so bravely enters the great contllct, between wrong and right,?
The mysterious fight 'twixt the false and the true!
"Iis the martial like call thrills the grave spirit through.
And when the light ends there comes the surcease
While from sun burnished portals floats the Hanner of Peace.
Prof. Daniels advocates the cultivation of this spirit, and convincingly
conweyod to the minds of his hearers that this spirit is the tondercst and
bravest and can alone achieve the victory over the wrongs that will despoil
the glorious image of Cod in man. Ills poetic quotations portrayed In
touching expression that to live is not all of life, and that to die Is not all
of death, but it all lies in how we live and how we die.
Following his address was the invitation to the unveiling. Sltnultaniously
the deeply interested throng followed the Regent to the site where the
monument stands, she being accompanied by Mrs. Mays of Greenville, the
Stati Regent, Who led Mrs. Frances Monroe, "the real daughter" of this
chapter, to her honored position, she enjoying the distinctive honor and
courteous privilege of lifting aside the veil revealing the handsome marker.
It was a beautifully Inspiring seem . and when all had viewed the work of
tills patriotic chapter, with bowed heads they listened to the benediction
pronounced by Rev. Dudley Jones of the First Presbyterian church of Clin
The monument is an imposing piece of granite eight.or ten feet high and
about three feet through the thickest part, rustic in shape, with bronze tab
let set into the face bearing the following Inscription:
?Here abouts was fought the Battle of Musgrove Mill
August IS, 1780,
A victory for the Americans.
This tablet is erected by the Musgrove Mill Chanter
of the Daughters of the American Revolution,
It stands facing the road on the Laurons county side of Enoree river,
in front of the site of the old Musgrove home, on a wide spreading rock that
mature, it seems, lias held In reserve as a fitting foundation for the handsome
monument on the Musgrove Mill Battle Ground, It seemed at this auspicious
hour as if we stood on holy ground.?indeed it is hallowed, for we are as
sured that there can scarcely be a foot of.these sloping hills and verdant val
leys of the old Musgrove region that has not felt the footfall of the American
At noon a bountiful picnic dinner was served, an 1 after a refreshing and
restful hour the audience wer.? given timely discussion by Col. T. P. Duncan.
Mr. .1 C. Davis and others.
The Chapter feel that they would act amiss to their appreciation and
gratitude If they fail In this connection to acknowledge and extend thanks to
Mr. G. C. Young for the gift of the beautiful piece of granite.
They were made very happy by being honored by the presence of so large
an assembly, there being present visitors from Laurens, Greenville. Newberry,
Colon, Spartanburg, Clemson, Cross Keys, Cross Anchor, Kinards. and Geor
uia. Every home In the surrounding country was well represented, with
man.? from Clinton accompanying them. They felt especially honored by
the presence of Mrs. Gentry who is a real daughter of 1S12, and a veritable
bun in encyclopedia. Mr. Willbank, to whom they are Indebted for much
important information, he having pointed out the grave of Mary Mus
grove of Revolutionary fame, where they had previously erected a marker,
and others who have been especially kind, whose names we fail to have.
Mrs.* J. A. Bailey, the Regent, did herself proud on this occasion. She
had sustaining her the patriotic and devoted spirit of the entire chapter,
beside the sincere approval of their former Regent. Mrs. J. C. Davis( recent
ly retired) who had from the organization of their chapter been a wise and
Members of the chapter present were Mrs. J. A. Halley. Mrs. W. T. Bailey,
Mrs. J. C. Davis, Miss Agatha Davis, Mrs. Byrd Phillips, Mrs. Maggie Hays,
Miss Pearl Hays, Mrs. J. F. Jacobs, Mrs. J. C. Hobertson. Miss Sara Monroe,
and Mrs. Frances Monroe,?their real daughter, who proudly remembers
her father who entered the army at the age of 17 years, and fought through
the seven long years of the American Revolution, going down to an honored
grave at the ripe old age of S9, bearing a deep scar across his head that
his descendants always referred to with pride. On this memorable'day he
was represented by an unbroken family chain, except one link, to the fourth'
generation. This chapter was highly pleased to have with them on<e of the
State Vice Regents, and to have Mrs. Mays, the much admired and beloved
State Regent was Indeed a joy to them,?the sound of her very name has a
silvery ring in the homes of the D. A. R. of South Carolina.
These noble women are enwreathing laurels for their owa tombs,?they
are leaving footprints on the sands of Time. One of national fame has said
that women who accomplish so much might deservedly be designated queens
among women. Truly It seems It was a God-given and inspiring thought that
possessed the very souls of those who first conceived the plan for the D. A.
R. organization. Their enthusiasm evinced the possibilities of success, In
citing wide-spread Interest over our entire country.
"Foresworn by their forebears to duty
They heap the memorials high,
That tell in their truth and their boauty
The story that never shall die."
