The Leading Patriotic and Social
Gathering of Bamberg County.
Last Thursday the annual memorial
meeting of the Rivers' Bridge Memorial
Association took place at the grounds
near the battle field where a handful of
brave Confederates gallantly opposed an
invading horde. The weather was all
that could be desired, and it is thought
that the gathering on this occasion was
one of the largest ever assembled to do
honor to our heroic dead. Bamberg, Barnwell,
Colleton and Hampton counties
were well represented, and the number
of visitors from Bamberg town was large.
It is estimated that about 3.CMK) people
were on the grounds.
About twelve o'clock President McMilj
lan called- the meeting to order, and
prayer was offered by Rev. S. P. Chisholm.
After music by the choir the presidiug
officer made a short address and then introduced
Col. Robert Aldrich, of Bamwell,
as the orator of the day. We could
not obtain a copy of his speech for publication.
His subject was: "The Confederate
Soldier, living and dead," and he
give many instances showing that man}'
profound scholars were private soldieis
iu the Confederate army. The speaker
also quoted extensive statistics giving
an account of the most important battles
of the war, showing the number of men
engaged and the Confederate and Federal
loss. He closed with the statement
that living he cared for* no title other
than a Confederate soldier, and dead, no
grander epitaph than a Confederate sol
dier. President McMillan then introduced
Mrs. Virginia D. Young, who was
to speak on "The Women of the Confederacy."
The most of her speech is here
My Friends: It gives me satisfaction
to be on your plattiorm as one of your
speakers. * It is the first time in the history
of the Rivers' Bridge Memorial Association
that a woman has been invited
to take part in the speaking; the first
time that the heretofore voiceless or
silent half of humanity has been called
on to express itself in regard to those
great persons and events, which this Association
was formed to commemorate.
And yet but for woman, would this Association
have kept alive ? Fancy only
men speaking to men, only men flaking
the music, only men decorating
the graves, only men providing the dinner.
Of course some men are very good
cooks, bat in this section of country it is
mostly the women who have to get dinner,
breakfast and supper?and what do
men know about "custard pies," pound
cake and the making of pickles? - Very
little, except to eat them.
Tnfly, in the best analysis we always
find the world's work begins and ends in
"For man's work is from sun to sun,
But woman's work is never done."
Dear friends, as I look back upqp that
tremendous episode in the history of nations?the
rise and fall of the Southern
Confederacy, t see in the perspective of
every soldier the mother who brought
him into the world, who nourished his.
infancy, protected his childhobd, guided
his boyhood, and inspired his manhood.
And I know that the genius and courage
of Lee and Jackson and Hampton,
and indeed of all the world's great chieftains?of
Washington, Napoleon, Wellington,
Caesar, Alexander, were a heritage
from their mothers, for the history of the
race proves that great qualities are transmitted
from mother to son, and from father
to daughter; in other words nature
reverses the sex of the inheritor.
"Who keot alive the memory of Jeflfer
son Davis as did his daughter, winsome
Winnie?the adored daughter of the Confederacy
? And upon whom fell the mantle
of Calhoun, but on his lame daughter,
whose "Clemson bequest" was the nucleus
from which sprung the great* industrial
college for farmers' sons, called "Clemson
I have never yet met a distinguished
man (and it has been my good fortune to
meet many) who did not, at my question,
tell me "he took after his mother."
* And how men lovd their mothers, even
the worst of men, with a deep, touching
pathetic love, purer than any other. A
man may have several wives, and a multitude
of children, brothers and sisters,
but only* one mother.
The women of the Confederacy were
the breath of its life, it never could have
gone on a year, a month, a day, without
the toilers at home. Who fed the soldiers
in the field, in camps of instruction,
in the hospital ? Did you say the government
? No, it was, when you come to
trace supplies to their sources, the women;
for the wheat, corn, bacon, beef, rye, coffee,
potatoes, peas, whether bought by the
government or sent as gifts were all
raised on the plantations and farms, and
do you think that the work of the negroes
on those farms and plantations would
have gone on at all without the influence,
the encouragement, the authority of the
women of the Confederacy? Never!
Not only did the women superintend
the farm work, but those whose soft,
white hands had never worked in all their
lives before, labored then. Of course you
know the story of how the "gray" cloth
that clothed the Confederate soldiers was
made?how the wives and mothers and
sisters and sweethearts learned to card,
to spin, to weave, and to knit. Old negro
women, who had not lost those arts
were brought to the white people's houses
and installed as teachers to the fair faced
matrons and maidens, who had been used
to have servants tie their shoes for them.
I think it was in those crucial days that
a true conception of the dignity of labor
dawned upon the Southern mind, and
they began to detach from it tne notion
of "menial." How can any labor be "meT
OOTT ?r?*A TTA11 lYITT frionHc
Uiai JL Daj UUtV/ J vu U1J a A tvuuw
"Labor, all labor is noble and holy,
Let thy good deeds be thy prayer to
thy God."
Not only did the women of the Confederacy
farm, spin, weave, knit, but they
had shoes made for the soldiers, for themselves
and the negroes.
On every large plantation there was a
tannery, an'd here not only cow skins,and
coon skins, and dog skins were
tanned, but even the" dear domestic cat
was called on to contribute her skin to
make the softest, strongest, most pliable
of gloves. Besides the shoes, and socks
ana coats and pants and underclothes,
there was still another untried field of
labor, which the women of the Confederacy
essayed and in which they succeeded
wonderfully. This was the making of
hats which they pleated of wheat and rye
straw, of wiregrass, of shucks, and "in
lower South Carolina of Palmetto.
The women taxed their ingenuity in
contriving substitutes for things to eat
not grown in the country. Sugar was
m^de from sorghum as well as sugar
cane, coffee frv>m rye and potatoes, and
rice cakes became the rage. They made
corncob ashes do for soda.
They made blacking out of a decoction
of china tree berries' and so caused the

black lustre.
They kindled fires with flint and steel
in place of matches, which, with many
other luxuries, were only to be had by
running the blockade.
The women of the Confederacy, in
place of steel pens, used goose quills,
dipped in ink made of soot and molasses.
There was a paper mill in the State, but
the paper it turned out was not as good
as the wrapping paper our merchants use
to-day; but the women used it, and used
wall paper, and the backs of old letters to
write to the dear ones at the front
thoughts that breathed in words that
The women became adepts in the preparation
of healing herbs and medicines;
opium from the poppy and quinine from
white oak bark. Many women adventured
their lives in running the blockade
to get medicines for the hospitals. Especially
wa8 this dangerous service undertaken
by the Virginia women, who in va
rious disguises would again and again
manage to get through the enemy's lines
into Washington. There are plenty of
Major Andres among the women of the
Confederacy?women who freely risked
their lives* to gain information of the
most vital import to our armies in the
tiehl, and so risked being hung as spies.
There was plenty of Emily Geigers
among the women of the Confederacy as
annears from the novels of John Esteu
Cooke ami others, ami none of them were
braver than our own Mary Yates Snowden,
of Charleston, who on that fearful
night, when Columbia was sacked and
burned bore, sewed up in her skirts, the
a>sets of the Calhoun monument fund.
The saving of those assets resulted in the
subsequent raising of an amount sufficient
for the monument to South Carolina's
mighty son, which to-day looks down
upon the Citadel, in Charleston, the tinest
military school in the South. Mrs. Snowden
was one of the leaders among the
women who clubbed together to send
clothing and provisions to the soldiers in
ramp as well as the sufferers in the hospitals.
Tins organized work of women was the
\ery beginning of women's club work in
South Carolina. But as the acorn to
the oak, how out-reaching to-day is the
inflorescence of the idea which we see
illustrated in the "Federation of Woman's
Clubs," which met last week in Charleston.
How evident is it now that to do
effective work we must unite, we must
recognize to oneness of humanity, and
take in clearly that this great universe of
divine energy is not a "diverse," and that
k is liiipossioie ior us 10 naie or iujuic
another being and not be hurt ourselves.
The truth is "we reach infinity through
the love of one, and loving this one we
are in love with all."
Well the women of the Confederacy
loving their own soldier husbands and
sons had love for all, and this love manifested
in endless boxes and barrels of
clothing and provisions sent to the men
in the field and hospital.
No count was ever kept of the number
of women who acted as nurses, Which
work some did in the field and city hospitals
and many in their homes, for a sick
or wounded soldier had the entree to
every home and everywhere was nursed
and cared for by the women as sons or
brothers. Sometimes they were buried
by women. Mrs. Sarah A. Dorsey who
willed her beautiful home, "Beauvoir," in
Mississippi to Jefferson Davis, in her reminiscences
tells a story of a dead Confedfederate
soldier buried by two young
white ladies. They heard that his dead
body had been left when the Confederates
retreated after a disastrous fight; so in
their dugout (a kind of unsafe Indian
canoe) they paddled down the Mississippi
river to the Federal commander's camp,
begged for the body, carried it away and
buried it.
The same girls had gone in their dugout
to give warning to Harrison's pickets,
and suspicion of their "disloyalty"
getting into the Federal mind their home
was burned and themselves ordered to go
into the lines of the Southern army. Mrs.
Dorsey said she saw them camped by the
riverside with only a board shelter to
keep off rain or sunshine, only a blanket
to sleep on and a cashmere shawl to cover
with, only cornbread and bacon to eat,
but bright, brave and cheerful.
On the 31st of July, 1897, the Confederate
veterans of Edgefield and Saluda unveiled
a monument to a woman-soldier,
who had fought during four years, from
1861 to 1865, beside her husband and 9on
in actual battles of the Confederacy. She
was as good a wife, as devoted a mothert
as womanly a friend to her fellow soldier
as other women of the Confederacy, who
stayed at home and spun and knit and
wove and did the cooking and washing.
And the testimony of the men who delivered
the oration at the unveiling of the
monument to Mrs. Lucinda B. Home,
was that "she was not only a brave soldier,
but a good, pure, lovable woman in
all the relations of life."
Mrs. Horne was elected an honorary
member of the Confederate Veterans' Association
at Greenwood in 1894, and dying
a year later, her comrades raised
funds and paid for a monument to perpetuate
her war record.
An ounce fact is worth a pound of theory,
and the facts of Mrs. Home's history
prove that women can light and not be
de-womanized. This fact is attested by
the history of the race, which shows that
in his earlier evolution the human being
shares his lighting responsibilities with
his woman mate.
Not only is this characteristic of barbarous
men, but of primal race conditions,
as is attested by the war now going on
betweeen the Boers and the British in
South Africa. We hear of a Boer bride
and groom who spent their honeymoon
on the firing line, each with a Mauser
rifle and were happy.
To return to the women of the Confederacy?a
pitiful little story is told of one
in Richmond, Ya., whose husband had
been in the trenches before Petersburg
during all that last terrible winter of the
war and never had a furlough to run over
to Richmond even to see his first-bom?a
little son, but "now he was coming home
for a day or two, furloughed at last, and
the wife was expecting him, looking her
prettiest, the pretty baby cosily asleep in
his cradle, a smoking hot supper on the
table?the combined offerings of several
friends, a juicy ham, a plate of elegant
biscuits, some golden butter, plum preserves
and a pot of genuine mocha coffee.
There came a sound of wheels and hurried
steps on the ground. The wife flew
to open the door, to emDrace ner soiaier
husband. A stranger stood there and
held out a telegram. She read the fatal
words: "Your husband was kibed in the
trenches before Petersburg this afternoon
at 3 o'clock."
"Whieh braver those who haste away
Or those who stay behind ?
The soldier hurrying to the front,
Or wife with tears half blind ?
The shot that strikes the soldier down,
The gunner ne'er divined,
Had pierced with even deeper wound
The poor wife left behind."
Such women as the exigencies of those
terrible times developed was illustrated
in that great woman, Mrs Mary Yates
Snowden, of Charleston, S. C., who was
not only the founder of the "Ladies' Memorial
Association of South Carolina,"
which established the custom of decorating
the soldiers' graves, but the founder
of even a nobler memorial?"The Confederate
Home in Charleston for the
Widows and Daughters of Confederate
soldiers." At that Confederate home
school 1,500 daughters of Confederate
soldiers have been educated through the
high and benevolent intent of Mrs. Snowden,
who in starting the project mortgaged
her own home for $1,800 to pay the
lirst years' rental.
A young girl named Mary Lansing,
whose father and brothers were with
Gen. Lee at the surrender, had been detained
at her home on the Fort Motte
plantation at the time Sherman's army
n?ssinc- through our State, in her
"* f O G
firm resolution to save the family valuables
from the raiders. Alone in the house
save for the colored people who loved
her, she faced the brutal camp followers,
who made Sherman's passage an opportunity
for pillage. Her presence saved the
house, and kept the colored people together.
Later on towards April she demined
to go to Columbia, whither she
had sent her younger sisters before the
raid to be cared for by an aunt. She set
out for Columbia, twenty miles distant,
with "Daddie John," the venerably family
butler. The Congaree was in floodfreshet,
and the only crossing was by the
trestle, which yet remained of the bridge
burned by the Confederates in their retreat.
But the trestle did not reach the
shore, there was considerable water that
had to be crossed before reaching the tirst
big post where the trestle began. A Confederate
soldier was keeping the ferry,
rowing out the occasional men travelers
who were iure-footed enough to brave
the walking of the'trestle. He positively
refused to carry Mary Lansing to the
trestle post, on which he had nailed some
cross pieces; he told her it would be certain
death. She offered him a diamond
ring?a family heir loom, but he asked,
"Did the Yankees go where you were?"
"Yes," she replied and told him the
story of her experiences. When she had
finished the soldier said: . If you could
face them raiders you can walk that trestle."
He refused her diamond ring, but
rowed her out to the big post withgi "God
bless you." She climbed like a squirrel i
and went over safely. 1

Heart disease kills suddenly, but
never-without warning. The warnings
may be faint ana brief, or may
be startling and extend oxer many
years, but they are none the less
certain and positive. Too often the
victim is deceived by the thought,
"it will pass away." Alas, it never
passes away voluntarily. Once installed,
heart disease never gets better
of itself. If Dr. Mller Heart
Cure is used in th^ early Jt^ges recovery
is absolutely certain in every
ease where its use is persisted in.
"For many years I was a great sufferer
from heart disease before I
finally found relief. I was subject
to fainting and sinking spells, fullness
about the heart, and was unable
to attend to my household duties. I
tried nearly every remedy tliat was
recommended to me and doctored
with the leading physicians of this
section but obtained no help until I
began taking Dr. Miles' Heart Cure.
It has done me more good than all
the medicine I ever took."
