Zzzpalmetto State cadets.

Ten cadets of the South Carolina Military Academy came from Charleston as an escort to the contingent of veterans from the Palmetto State. They were commanded by Lieutenant P. P. Mazyck, of the academic staff, and a veteran of the Army of Northern Virginia. There was, perhaps, special significance in the presence of these cadets, for their predecessors fired actually the first shot of the war, when the Star of the West attempted to relieve Fort Sumter. The flag they carried saw service at Tullifinny, the baptism of fire, which the cadets of the South Carolina Military Institute bore as gallantly as did their young Virginia compatriots at New Market.

Prominent among the twenty veterans in the ranks were Captain W. E. Stoney, Comptroller-General of South Carolina during the Hampton regime; the Rev. Dr. Thompson, who served with distinguished gallantry in the flying artillery of General Marmaduke, and S. T. Pinckney, of Kershaw's Brigade.
