'BAT'Il'El FLAG IRETUINED HOME
Flag Thiou1ghat. t be That of Co. A, 13th
South Carolina, a Laurens Company,
leceived by Local Daughters.
Mrs. J. S. Bennett, president of the
Joseph 13. Kershaw chapter, Daughters
of the Confederacy, has just received
fron Aiss 'lary 11. Poppeim, of
'Charleston, former president general
of the Daughters of the Confederacy, a
bat'le flag of the Confederacy, sup
posed to have ,been that of the comi
1 pany which went out frot the lower
'I)art of the county soon after the fall
of Fort Sumter.
The flag bears the inscription on
oie side "Martin Guards PreseiKedi -by
Ladies of Laurens." The flag waB
forwarded by Mlsa; Poppenlimln with a
letter stating that it 'was sent to her
by Mrs. Paul Roman, of Decatur, Ga.,
who had expressed the wish that it be
priesenlted to the 11. 1). C. chapter in
the home of the flag's company. Aliss
Poppenlhelill also stated that the flag
was brought from Richmond by Paul
Roman when that city was evacuated
by the Confederates and that it had
been In the possession of Alrs. Roman
since that time. The name "Roman"
will be recognized by many as that of
an old South Carolina family oL
Judge 0. Q. Thompson, one of the
few surviving veterans who went out
to war upon the fall of Fort Sumter,
was shown the flag yesterday. While
he said that lie could not he certain
of its origin, still ho thought that it
belonged to the company raised by
Capt. R. L. Bowden in the lower part
of the county, about Martin's De
pot. This company was known as
Co. A, 13th South Carolina Volunteers,
and went to Charleston in the fall of
1810 and from there went to Richmond
in the spring of '61. 'By -that time all
of the individurl company and regi
mental flags had given place to the
Stars and Bars, the Confederate -bat
tle cnblem, and no doulbt was deposit
ed in Riclmniond upon its arrival there.
The flag is made of a fine texture of
silk. The background on the front is
or w-hite, with a green palmetto tree,
the lettering being in gold. The back
has the blue background with one in
scription "Constitution . and Liberty"
and another "In the name of 'the Lord
our God 'we w-ill hold up our flag. Stand
fast therefore in the liberty wherewith
Christ hath made us free."
The flag will be displayed by Mrs.
Bennett at the meeting of' the Daugh
ters of 'the Confederacy tomorrow af
