THE RETURN IN '65.
** ** *. e* * ,* I
Dear Advertiser Readers-:
On a recent visit to Laurens I met
my good old friend, Judge Wright, and
he begged me to do a favor for him.
Assuring hiii that anything in my
piver I'd gladly do, he said, "Well,
Aunt Kate, conflirm a statement I made
on reading your last pi)cco." And he
went on to relate how, after reading
,wihat I wrote about Press Allison, he
also grew reminiscent and told that
when Press left here for Texas he was
given the name of a man that had
stoplid at Grandpa Cunningham's af
ter the war for a few days. That Press
did find the same man and had an en
joyable time at his home." What you
recon that crowd of hearers did after
the Judge had finished? Laughed at
hint and told him "that was a pretty
good yarn!" -Sure, I'll confirm whI
my good old friend said, and mor -
I'll give you the evidence in Press's
own words. Aunt Ilet and I found a
letter from him that escaped the fire
when Mrs. Allison's house was burned
tw years ago.
When the boys came back in '65,
(Lord, what a contrast to the home
coming of our heroes today) they
didn't come in with lbanners flying and
crowds yelling, well fed and well
clothed and stopping Inl camps to be
deloused! Ragged and hungry, bare
footed and lousy, they came straggling
in-sometimes in companies, often
times in twos and threes. My own
father left his companions at the
Teague place, where Mr. John Brown
lives today and cut across fields to his
home. 'lis mother and sisters sat in
the old home 'with heavy hearts. Two
sons and the one son-in-law had given
their lives for the Southland, and they
did not know whether this one were
living or dead. Early one morning
across the fields there was borne to
them the sound of a young voice sing
ing that old song dear to thc hearts i
of the boys of 61-65, "Katy Wells", be
ginning thus, "You ask what makes
this soldier weep-". The dear old
mother throw up her hands and for
vently cried, "Thank God that's Will's
voice. le is home--he is home!"
Wasn't that typical of the South we
love-ragged and poverty-stricken, but
undaunted and unbeaten and unafraid! t
Of course the boys of Stales fuirher
on passed through S. C. Some of thei
fotind relatives along the nway and
stopped, rested and had a good time
while they regained strength for their
journey further on. Grandpa had two
brothers, Jacob and Josepli. One went
to Alabama and one to Texas away I
.back in the forties. Their b'oys, of
course, fought in the Confederate
army. After the war one of these
ileplews stoplted( -with his uncle and
rested for several dlays. lie lived in
Alabfaia and was afterwards Probate
Judge at Iii rmningham. Two cavalry
lads fronm Texas, Ilodges and Barniett,
stopped at Grandpa Cunningham's al
so. For some reason, they could not
go( imi ately ont to Tlexas, so they3
staid in S. 'C. for t months and mtade
