D. A. R. AT LIBERTY.
The April meeting of the Fort
Prince George Chapter was a delight
fully instructive one, held at the hos
pitable home of Mrs. A. L. Johnson
in Liberty, with Mrs. J. F. Banister
and Mrs. Wade C. O'Dell as joint
The cordial reciprocity of feeling
which has always existed between the
ladies of Liberty and Pickens has
been decidedly promoted by the or
ganization of this patriotic society,
for they have united in an effort to
preserve the history of Pickens
county in its earlier days, and to
form a chapter of which any com
munity would' be proud.
After a short business session, the
study of the life and times of Gen.
Francis Marion was entered upon.
No more picturesque character has
ever adorned the pages of any his
tory than that of the "Swamp Fox,"
and Mrs. Wayne Mauldin, in an ex
cellently prepared paper, gave a vivid
account of the life of this partisan
hero. Mrs. Laura Alexander read
Glimore Simms' "Swamp Fox" in a
most effective manner. Mrs. T. J.
Mauldin read a most delightful ac
count of the times of the Revolution
taken from Mrs. Ravenel's book
Charleston, the place and the people.
The study of the bravery and
courage of the women of the Revo
lution is dwelt upon at each meet
iing, and the sacrifices andl heroism of
Rebecca Motte was the subject' for;
Ti'he social hour which concludes
these meetings again bore evidence
