Southern Historical Society Papers, Volume 7. (ed. Reverend J. William Jones), Who burned Columbia?--a Review of General Sherman's version of the affair. (search)
Who burned Columbia?--a Review of General Sherman's version of the affair. By Colonel James Wood Davidson. The publication of his Memoirs by General Sherman makes for the third time an occasion for the country to ask, Who burned Columbia? The first occasion was the publication of his official report just after the event; and the second was in September, 1873, when he published a letter in the Washington Chronicle, apparently designed to influence the decision of the Mixed Claims Commissio city to take place that night; fourteenth, that the conflagration did take place that night, announced by signals and beginning at several places to the windward of the heart of the city; fifteenth, that numerous Federal officers witnessed the active agency of the soldiers in spreading the conflagration without taking timely steps to prevent the same; and, sixteenth, that in fine, General Sherman is morally responsible for the burning of Columbla. James Wood Davidson. New York, June 15, 1875.

Beauregard's and Hampton's orders on Evacuating Columbia — letter from Colonel A. R. Chisolm. [The following letter from a gallant officer of General Beauregard's staff seems to settle beyond question the character of the orders given when the Confederates evacuated Columbia.] New York, March 23, 1879. Rev. J. William Jones, D. D., Secretary Southern Historical Society, Richmond, Va.: My Dear Sir — I have read in the April number of the Society Papers Colonel James Wood Davidson's communication relative to the burning of Columbia by General Sherman, and it may be a matter of interest in future that I inform you of what took place between Generals Beauregard and Hampton on the evening previous to the evacuation of that city. As Aid-de-Camp to General Beauregard I was the only officer present with the two Generals. Beauregard had arrived late in the day from Charleston. Late in the evening Hampton called on him at the hotel, and after stating the condition of affairs in

the Virginia as Lieutenant-Commandant, if it be not the intention of the Department to bestow upon him a higher rank. Lieutenant Simms fully sustained his well-earned reputation. He fired the first gun, and when the command devolved upon Lieutenant Jones, in consequence of my disability, he was ordered to perform the duties of Executive Officer. Lieutenant Jones has expressed to me his satisfaction in having had the services of so experienced, energetic and zealous an officer. Lieutenant Davidson fought his guns with great precision. The muzzle of one of them was soon shot away; he continued, however, to fire it, though the wood work around the port became ignited at each discharge. His buoyant and cheerful bearing and voice were contagious and inspiring. Lieutenant Wood handled his pivot gun admirably, and the Executive Officer testifies to his valuable suggestions during the action. His zeal and industry in drilling the crew contributed materially to our success. Li

y a conglomeration of poems with little to aid the student of literary history. In 1869 James Wood Davidson's Living writers of the South was published in New York, with salient facts as to the biotely grateful that he has not. In his criticism of Flash, for whom he shows much enthusiasm, Davidson puts his finger upon the cardinal defects of many of the Southern poets. Flash, he says, has nion so called, and a contempt for the art of versification. Apart from his critical judgment Davidson shows the ability of a careful editor in weighing evidence as to the authorship of All quiet alad claimed as the work of Lamar Fontaine. Now by some ascribed to Thaddeus Oliver (1826-64). Davidson publishes Fontaine's letter claiming positively the authorship, but side by side with it is ones the author of several poems which are as unlike his later writings as anything could well be. Davidson has the credit too of publishing for the first time in this volume McCabe's Dreaming in the tre
