converging on Richmond. Preparatory to the next move, General Howard was sent from Savannah to secure Pocotaligo, in South Carolina, as a point of departure for the north, and General Slocum to Sister's Ferry, on the Savannah River, to secure a safe lodgment on the north bank for the same purpose. In due tine — in February, 1865--these detachments, operating by concentric lines, met on the South Carolina road at Midway and Blackville, swept northward through Orangeburg and Columbia to Winnsboro‘, where the direction was changed to Fayetteville and Goldsboro‘, a distance of 420 miles through a difficult and hostile country, making junction with Schofield at a safe base with two good railroads back to the sea-coast, of which we held absolute dominion. The resistance of Hampton, Butler, Beauregard, and even Joe Johnston was regarded as trivial. Our objective was Lee's army at Richmond.

, with the hope that, as no resistance had been offered, it would be protected from pillage and destruction. Sherman, in his memoirs, tells its fate in these brief and suggestive words: The army, having totally ruined Columbia, moved on toward Winnsboro‘. [See p. 686.] Stevenson's division, which was above the city, was withdrawn, taking the road to Winnsboro‘, and I, having been assigned the night previous to the command of the cavalry, fell back in the same direction, covering the retreat oWinnsboro‘, and I, having been assigned the night previous to the command of the cavalry, fell back in the same direction, covering the retreat of the infantry. It would scarcely have been possible to disperse a force more effectually than was done in our case. Hardee was moving toward Fayetteville in North Carolina; Beauregard was directing Stevenson's march to Charlotte; Cheatham, with his division from the Army of Tennessee, had come from Augusta and was moving toward the same point as Stevenson, but on the west side of the Congaree and Broad rivers, while the cavalry kept in close observation of the enemy. Hardee's men, though <

gloried more a thousand times in the Palmetto flag of his State. He had regarded, from his youth, the Stars and Stripes as the emblem of oppression and tyranny. This bold conspirator was so warmly applauded, that menaced Brooke, at the suggestion of a friend, withdrew his motion. W. W. Boyce, of South Carolina, who had been a member of the National Congress for seven years, presented a model for a flag, which he had received, with a letter, from a woman of his State (Mrs. C. Ladd, of Winnsboroa), who described it as tri-colored, with a red union, seven stars, and the crescent moon. She offered her three boys to her country ; and suggested Washington Republic as the name of the new nation. Many members liked the suggestion, but the more radical men, like Rhett and Toombs, opposed it, probably because it might have such strong associations with the old Government as to cause a desire for reconstruction. So powerful became the feeling in the Convention in favor of the name of W

architecture is pure Corinthian throughout. It was not more than half completed when the war broke out, and labor upon it ceased. The picture on the next page shows it as it will appear when finished. Howard had marched up from the burning bridge to the Saluda, by Sherman's orders, with directions to cross that stream and the Broad River, and New State House at Columbia. march upon Columbia, from the north. Slocum was also ordered to cross both rivers, and to march directly upon Winnsboroa, destroying the Greenville and Columbia railroad around the village of Alston, where it crosses the Broad River. Both orders were executed. Howard crossed the Saluda Feb. 16, 1865. on a pontoon bridge, near Granby, and made a flying bridge that night over the Broad River, three miles above Columbia. Over that the brigade of Colonel Stone (Twenty-fifth Iowa Infantry), of Woods's division of the Fifteenth (Logan's) Corps, passed, and under its cover a pontoon bridge was laid on the morni

Meanwhile, Kilpatrick, who had been out on quite an extensive raid, was working round toward the last point. He had , but saved our sons. Had the war continued, we should have lost both. Sherman moved his whole army from Columbia to Winnsboroa, in the direction of Charlotte, and from that point, Slocum, who arrived there on the 21st of February with the Twentiein motion for Cheraw, on the Great Pedee River. The right wing, meanwhile, had broken up the railway from Columbia to.

Crossing the Greenville and Columbia road, Kilpatrick tore it up down to Alston, where he crossed Feb. 19 the Broad, and pushed north nearly to Chesterville; when he found that Wheeler had moved around his front, united with Wade Hampton, and was before him on the road to Charlotte and Raleigh, N. C., which Sherman's advance northward from Columbia to Winnsboroa Feb. 21 had led the enemy to believe was his intended course. They were at fault, as usual. Though his left wing was thrown north nearly to Chesterville, the movement in this direction was a feint, and the whole army soon turned sharply to the right, crossing the Catawba, Feb. 23. and, after halting the right wing three days to enable Slocum (who had been delayed by a flood in the Catawba) to come up, struck the Great Pedee at Cheraw March 3.

enty thousand men in his four corps, and about five thousand cavalry in Kilpatrick's division. After moving along the Columbia and Charlotte Railroad beyond Winnsboroa, that army had turned to the right toward Cheraw, and had just crossed the Catawba; consequently, it was near the northern edge of the triangle formed by the poessful in an application to the Government for money for the troops, who had received none for many months.

oss the Saluda and Broad Rivers as near their mouths as possible, occupy Columbia, destroy the public buildings, railroad property, manufacturing and machine shops; but will spare libraries, asylums, and private dwellings. He will then move to Winnsboroa, destroying en route utterly that section of the railroad. He will also cause all bridges, trestles, water-tanks, and depots on the railroad back to the Wateree to be burned, switches broken, and such other destruction as he can find time to a remained. There was also found an immense quantity of money, in various stages of manufacture, which our men spent and gambled with in the most lavish manner. Having utterly ruined Columbia, the right wing began its march northward, toward Winnsboroa, on the 20th, which we reached on the 21st, and found General Slocum, with the left wing, who had come by the way of Alston. Thence the right wing was turned eastward, toward Cheraw, and Fayetteville, North Carolina, to cross the Catawba River

e inmates also. The newspaper accounts of Sherman's march from Georgia through South Carolina are heartrending. An extract from one of them says: Sherman burnt Columbia on the seventeenth instant. He had burnt six out of seven farm houses on the route of his march. Before he reached Columbia, he had burned Blackville, Graham, Bamburg, Buford's bridge and Lexington, and had not spared the humblest hamlet. After he left Columbia, he gave to the flames the villages of Allston, Pomaria, Winnsboroa, Blackstock, Society Hill, and the towns of Camden and Cheraw. Would that the prisoners at Fort Delaware could be exchanged and sent to confront this ruthless, heartless destroyer of the homes. and subsistence of helpless women and children. We would teach him a wholesome lesson. The paragraph quoted reminds me of a letter written by General Sheridan. After the battle of Fisher's Hill, he wrote from Strasburg as follows: Lieutenant J. R.
