* A Good Day at Old Langston *
It was my unexpected pleasure, ow
Ing to the thoughtfulness of Mr. Wal
ter Nash, a candidate for the legisla
ture, to attend the annual reunion of
Co. F, 14th Reg. S. C. Volunteers, at
Langston Church on August 19th.
Through all these years I have looked
forward to some day going to the
church founded by my Colonial grand
sire, bearing his name toduy-Lang
ston-and my gratitude is great to
wards Mr. Nazh for the offer of a seat
in that splendid car of his, with so
good (riverM s 'Tom Shaw going over,
and Jud Langston coming ba c, there
by making ib,, dienn, conie true.
Wt, reoahed Laurens early andt the
canditm. iis. Iangston and Nasla, .
surod the ? anrr and ne thai theY
would 1be read. ill just 20 llilutes.
Take it tror.a me that was the long
est 20 minutes that ever passed over
amy he: di I went up 1h1 The 4dvertis
eCi ;o.icv, found nobody at home
thougi, read Thbe State in which l.
laturia was tryin \ , to comie )a(k into
lie fcd and . id "lense was just a
lit tle more thanl he coul(d swallow."
Gazing out low ard the court house I
8pied a good old farimer. who has fo
lowed the "Reform" party, even with
Blease at its head. Knowing him to be
,s good as tihe bet, and 100 per cent
.Amerlean at heart, I wondered in ny
soul just how he stood today. Reaching
the car just as he cane by, we passed'
a pleasant "howdy do". I told him
just what I have written here and the
day was made brighter and my faith
in 'Carolina's patriotism stronger for
he is going to void right!
All things come to an end, even
waiting for candidates, so our partY
gathered once again, reinforced by .l\i.
R. T. Wilson told we wero soon speed
lug in our way.
We reached the church in time and
fround a good!y n1mber l on the
grounds. 'Well here we are," saidi
the better half "and you dont' know
a soul here." "ibon't let that worry
you for just a sOnIt as I can get in
side t hat cliutreh I'll find out one-half
dozen ladies and all kinfolks to boot!"
True to my word, I marched in. The
first sweet-faced lady that I spoke
to proved to be a kinswoman. She
took lile under her protecting wing,
and soon I had met a goodly number of
.\11'. W\. I. vright proved to he a
capa'ble masterr of ceremonies. Tihe
caves of life, the years, nor the h'ur
dens they iniose can ever, altogether,
repress the fun that is in him. Ile'
impresses upon one the truth "that
he loves his fellow man."
Imagination pictured for us that
scene in the early sixties, when these
150 boys, now known to us as Co. F,
1 tIh S. C. Reg., met and was lod away
hy Capt. Owens that 19th day of Au
gust, 57 years ago, from old Langston
church. Only 2 of the original com
pany answered the roll call-Geo. NM.
H~anna of ('ross Hill1 andl Wilson Blake
ly. However, .\essrs. Hanna and
Blakely were of the opinion that 19
others were still living. They are wide
Iy scattered though, some in Arkansas,
Oklaoma, Texas andl .\lississippi.
Doubtless they, in their far-awaiy
homes, r'elated to their children's chil
dren theira ta es "of hattles fouaghtI and
