Captain Abner Doubleday fired the first gun in reply to Beaure- gard's batteries. He served with distinction in the Army of the Po tomac. Captain J. G. Foster served under Burnside in North Carolina, and later in the west. Lieutenant Jeff C. Davis com manded a section of Doubleday's com pany at Sumter and was afterward a distinguished corps commander in the west. Dr. S. W. Crawford also acted as a subordinate to Doubleday. He con tinued to handle the sword and was a gallant division general at the close of the war. Lieutenant Truman Seymour arose to the command of a division. Lieutenant Norman J. Hall was the leader of a brigade which aided in the repulse of Pickett's charge at Gettys burg. Soon after that he retired from the army on account of ill health. He Was then a colonel of volunteers. One of the lieutenants, R. K. Meade, joined the Confederacy after the fall of Sum ter and died in that service. Another of the lieutenants, Snyder of the en gineers, died soon after the commence ment of hostilities. Sumter's flag fell at 1 o'clock on the 12th, but not because it had beenha-aled down. The staff had been struck and the halyards cut in two. When the flag came down, Lieutenant Hall secured it and fixed it on a temporary staff. With the aid of Lieutenant Snyder and Pri vate Hart, it was hoisted under fire upon the parapet at the middle, facing the enemy's guns. The Soldier Hart distinguished himself many times that day. Through his activity the flames were kept from spreading in dangerous quarters and to him was given the cred it of saving the powder magazines. Major Anderson gave orders that only the casement guns of Sumter should be used in reply to the enemy. These were the guns fired through em brasures in the wall answering to the ports of a battleship. The barbette guna on the parapet were the only shell gns in the fort. So the answering fire was of solid shot against shell. Seeing the disadvantage, one of the gunners, named Carmody, stole away to the ramparts and coolly fired every barbette gun in position on the Moultrie side. Carmody was unable to run the guns back single handed for loading and could not alone fight the whole Confed eracy with suitable weapons. In another part of the fort there was a ten inch columbiad in barbette, which also came under Anderson's prohibition. It was loaded and trained, and two sergeants, watching their chances, stole into the gorge and fired it. The shot barely missed smashing the famous Confederate iron battery. The sergeants determined to try again, and after some tugging got the gun back and reloaded it. They could not spring it into position again, but trained it where it stood. One sergeant %$5nt below to see that the coast was clear, and the other lay, lanyard in hand, ready to pull. The Confederates had noticed the new combatant and turned their best shots upon the gorge. Shells crashed around the prostrate gunner, and at last he pulled the lan yard, unable to wait longer. The big gun recoiled over the stop blocks and somersaulted across the stairway. In spite of the accident the secret was well kept, and Major Anderson never knew how the columbiad came to be dis mounted. The plucky sergeant's shot was a splendid one and struck just be neath the middle embrasure of the iron battery, where Charleston's Palmetto guards stood to the guns. It showered the battery with sand, and had it been aimed a trifle higher would have enter ed the embrasure. After the fire had gained headway in the fort and was nearing the magazine the excitement was intense. But the men turned cheerfully from fighting the enemy outside to the new enemy inside. Soldiers brought blankets soaked with water and spread them over the loaded shells and hand grenades. As the flames epread and drew near the rn.ain mag azine the men rolled" out barrels of pon der in thw midst of falling cinders to have it ready for service at the guns. There were several missions sent out by Beauregard to Major Anderson be fore and after the lowering of the flag. In all of them one man was conspicu ous. That was Captain James Chesnut, afterward a Confederate general. Cap tain Chesnut was one of three aids who Went to the fort under a white flag on April 11 to demand surrender. The de mand was refused. About 1 o'clock on the morning of the 12th Captain Chesnut again ap peared at Sumter, and remained there until past 3 o'clock, awaiting Major Anderson's reply. He had orders in his pocket to the commander of the bat teries on James island to open fire in case Anderson remained firm in his pur pose to hold the fort. On leaving he placed in Anderson's hand a written notice that the hostile guns would open in one hour. These trips were made in an open rowboat, which was pulled to Fort Johnson, and reached there at 4 o'clock. From Fort Johnson Captain Chesnut Btarted by boat to report to Beauregard in Charleston. He was rowed out into the harbor between Forts Johnson and Sumter, and there lay to until the sig nal shot was seen to burst over the tar get. After delivering his report to Beaure gard the captain was again sent in his open boat down the harbor, now alive with shells from Sumter and all its ad versaries, including Fort Moultrie. The boat reached Morris island in safety, passing under the guns which were fir ing vigorously. Captain Chesnut's in structions were to learn the condition of the southern batteries exposed to Sumter's shots, and also that of Sum ter. His boat ran out in the harbor to ward Sumter, and he saw that the buildings in the fort were on fire. About that time the firing from Sumter ceased. But the flag was still waving. Captain Chesnut determined to make one more demand for the eyacuation and was preparing to go out in the boat when the United States flag suddenly disappeared from the historic walls. Word was brought from Anderson that he would evacuate, and the captain has tened to the city with the news. The next mission of Captain Ches nut was one of mercy. The quarters in Fort Sumter had been set on fire by hot shot from Moultrie, and the condition of its magazine was not known to those outside. It was supposed that there must be some wounded needing care. A fire engine and its company were loaded on board a steamer, and with a surgeon and his staff of assistants the relief party hurried to the burning fort. On nearing the wharf the steamer was warned away byNan officer in the fort, who stated that it was in danger of blowing up at any moment from the mines placed beneath the wall at that point as a means of defense. Captain Chesnut entered the fort through an embrasure and offered the services of his firemen and surgeons to Major Anderson. Only one man had been wounded, and the fire had burned itself out. The lower magazine was under the burning ruins, but was deem ed safe. The upper one had been emp tied by casting the powder barrels into the sea. In most histories the first Confeder ate shot at Fort Sumter is wrongly at tributed to Edmund Ruffin of Virginia, a venerable man, who is called one of the fathers of secession. This tradition spoils a good story, and I give the facts from official history as a setting for an incident worth preserving. General Beauregard, commander of the provisional army of South Carolina, says in his official report, "The signal shell was fired from Fort Johnson at 4:30 a. m." Fort Johnson was on James island. It was a three gun bat tery, with a four gun mortar battery near by. The post was known as Fort Johnson. The official journal of Cap tain J. G. Foster, the Federal engineer in Sumter, says, "At 4:30 a. m. a sig nal shell was thrown from the mortar battery on James island.1' One of Beauregard's aids, who deliv ered the ultimatum to Major Anderson and carried his reply back to shore, Cap tain Stephen D. Lee, tells the story as follows in The Century war papers: "The boat containing the two aids and also Roger A. Pryor of Virginia went immediately from Sumter to Fort Johnson, on James island, and the or der to fire the signal gun was given to Captain George S. James, commanding the battery at that point. Captain James at once arranged to carry out the order. He was a great admirer of Roger A. Pryor, and said to him, 'You are the only man to whom I would give the honor of firing the first gun of the war,' and offered to allow him to fire it. "Pryor was very much agitated. With a husky voice he said, 'I could not GEN. DOUBLEDAY, IT. S. A. ROBERT AKDERSOST. S. W. CRAWFORD. fire the first gun of the war.' Captain James would allow no one else but him self to fire the first gun. It was fired at 4:50 a. m., and burst immediately over the fort." General Beauregard mentions Edward Ruffin in his report, and locates him. at the Iron battery on Morris island. Colonel De Saussure, commander of the Morris island batteries, says in his re port that his guns opened at 4:48 after the signal agreed upon had been given. Colonel De Saussure's subordinate, Major Stevens, says that the batteries on Morris island opened after the signal shell had been fired from Fort Johnson. Ruffin served in the Palmetto guard, which manned two batteries on Morris island, the Point (Cummings) and the Iron batteries. Captain Cuthbert of the Palmettos is very explicit in his report. He says: "The mortar battery of Cum mings point opened fire on Fort Sumter in its turn after the signal shell from Fort Johnson, having been preceded by the mortar batteries n Sullivan's is land and the Marion artillery (Morris island). At the dawn of day the Iron battery commenced its work. The first shell, fired by the venerable Edmund Ruffin, burst directly upon the parapet of the fort." The "dawn of day," which was the time Ruffin fired his columbiad, is placed by several witnesses more than an hour afr-^r the signal gun. Mean while the bombardment had been going on steadily from the several batteries bearing upon the doomed fort. 1 SEELVK JLIKES PRINCETON. Write a Letter to the Anoka Herald Telling About Our Folks To the EditorAs one of the most enjoyable events of my life has come and gone, I will take the liberty to tell you how it carne about. You see, my wife and I had been planning to go to Buffalo and being disappointed in the scheme, we Were brooding over our hard luck when, lo and behold, two angels of light appeared on the scene in the persons of Mrs. D. C. Handy and Mrs. George A. Hampson, of Minneapolis. We succeeded in captur ing them and kept them in close con finement, on bread and water, in our den. At the expiration of that time, to atone for our conduct, we were com pelled to agree to act as escorts to the above mentioned ladies to Princeton, as they were on their way to the head waters of the beautiful Rum. Accord ingly on the morning of August 26 we started on our journey. The weather was beautiful and the roads out of sight part of the time, and the wheels of our rigs out of sight the most of the time in the sand. Nevertheless we jour neyed on until reaching the farm of Mrs. J. Townsend, four miles south of Princeton, where we halted for re freshments which had been brought from the before mentioned den. After lunch we again started on our journey and drove to Princeton, where we were met by numerous friends who greeted us cordially, and urged us to stop and partake of the hospitality for which Princeton is justly noted, but as the two Minneapolis ladies were bound for Greenbush, eight miles farther north to visit Mr. and Mrs. Charles Hatch, we were proof against impor tunities to stop. The drive was a pleasant one, and in du'e time we reached the Hatch residence, where we took Mrs. Hatch completely by sur prise, but that lady, being equal to any emergency, we soon found ourselves perfectly at home, as Mr. and Mrs. Charles Hatch are the most hospitable of people. The next day, August 27, our lady friends, with Mrs. Hatch, took a trip to Milaca and returned to the Hatch farm, while your correspondent and wife returned to Princeton according to agreement, and partook of the princely hospitality of Henry Newbert, who by the way is the genial pro prietor of one of the best hotels in the west. The Colonel (Newbert) has re cently built an extensive addition to his large brick hotel and fitted it up in splendid style. Mesdames Handy and Hampson re turned to Princeton on Sunday, the 28th, where they were cordially greeted and entertained by old ac acquaintances. They returned amid many regrets to Minneapolis^ on the 31st. The hospitality of Princeton people is seldom equaled and never excelled. Princeton is a beautiful little city in deed,and has, made wonderful improve ments in the past five years. Our old friend, T. H. Caley, has the hardware store of the West, and there are many other very fine stores and beautiful residences. Our visitor are talking strongly of leaving Minneapolis and going to Princeton to reside in the future, and that same idea is running through the head of yours truly. St. Francis. Minn. .^?ife H. E.
