GEN. HAMPTON RE'MBERED.
Daughters of Confederacy Connem.
orate his Birthday with Ftting Ex.
The mnembers of the J. B. Kershaw
chapter, U. D. C., were most delight
fully entertained Tuesday afternoon
at the home of Mrs. J. S. Bennett
when they met to commemorate the
birthday of Gen. Wade Hampton, one
of South Carolina's most distinguished
soldiers, citizens and statesmen. The
opoeting exercisso were rendered very
impressive by repeating the Lord's
prayer in concert after which our
president, Mrs. J. S. Bennett intro
duced the first speaker for the after
noon, Mr. O. G. Thompson. . Mr.
Thompson needed no introduction to
the Daughters of the Confederacy, as
we have always known him to be our
close and sympathetic friend in this
cause we so earnestly work for, he
himself, being a "heare worn veteran.
His talk touched principally upon
Gen. Hampton's political and military
career, particularly his great achieve
ments in the battle of First Manassas,
in which the Confederates were vic
tors and his forceful leadership dur
.ng the reconstruction period.
Our next speaker, Mr. L. H. Roper,
spoke mainly of his personal experi
ences as a friend of Gen. Hampton. He,
having fought under his leadership,
could well tell of him as a man who
possessed great power and magnetism
as a leader of men in military affairs.
I e also spoke of Glen. llampton as a
man of great kindness and gentleness,
but also a man of firm determination
in his duty to his state and felow citi
