s 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 morning of the 17th. General Sherman was there, and at eleven o'clock information reached him that Mr. Goodwyn, mayor of the city, with a deputation of the common council, had come. out in a carriage, and made a formal surrender of Columbia to Colonel Stone. There seemed to have been no adequate military force for its protection. Wheeler's cavalry had done all in its power, in front of the National army, but the advance of the latter was irresistible. The shallow Beauregard was in command at Columbia. As usual, he had promised much, but did little. He made a slight show of resistance and w
ngagements: Kershaw's brigade. General Kershaw mentions Colonel Hennegan, Eighth South Carolina regiment; Colonel Kennedy, Second South Carolina; Lieutenant-Colonel Goodwyn, wounded, Second South Carolina; Major Gaillard, Second South Carolina; Colonel Nance, Third South Carolina; Major Rutherford, Third South Carolina; Colsays, he was an officer of fine judgment, cool courage, and commendable energy. He was killed instantly in the act of brandishing his sword defiantly. Lieutenant-Colonel Goodwyn, of the Second regiment, and Lieutenant-Colonel Bland, of the Seventh South Carolina regiment, were both severely wounded, conspicuously exposed as they of the most gallant and conscientious officers belonging to it. He was borne mortally wounded from the field, and, I regret to report, has since died. Lieutenant-Colonel Goodwyn was also severely wounded in the foot while gallantly discharging his duties. Second Lieutenant Perry, of company H, was also very severely wounded.

n the road to Winnsboroa in sight; of the column of the enemy, giving it the idea of a flank movement of cavalry. Sack and destruction of Columbia. Columbia was surrendered to the enemy in the morning of the 17th February, by the mayor, Mr. Goodwyn, who asked for the citizens the treatment accorded by the usages of civilized warfare. Sherman promised this. As night approached, perceiving that the mayor was exhausted by his labours of the day, he counselled him to retire to rest, saying were detailed for the institution. But a Catholic officer in Sherman's army visited the convent, warned the Lady Superiour of danger, and whispered to her, I must tell you, my sister, Columbia is a doomed city. A few moments later, while Mayor Goodwyn was conversing with a Federal soldier, three rockets were shot up by the enemy from the capitol square. As the soldier beheld these rockets, he cried out: Alas! alas! for your poor city! It is doomed. Those rockets are the signal. The to
Lieutenant-Colonel Inzer and Major Thornton, as on the first day, were eminently and conspicuously brave. Captain Harrell and Lieutenant Johnson, Captains Crenshaw and Holland, Lieutenants Clow, Ward, Perry, Rourk and Anderson, and Lieutenant Mills were severely wounded. Captain Avirett was wounded in the shoulder by a fragment of a shell before the charge, but he remained with his company and behaved with great coolness and gallantry. Commends Captain Lee, Lieut. J. F. McClellan, Lieutenant Goodwyn, Lieutenant Vandergrift and Lieutenant Hinton, who led their regiments bravely at all times and in the hottest fire.

and that the only thing on fire, at the time of the evacuation, was the depot building of the South Carolina railroad, which caught fire accidentally from the explosion of some ammunition ordered to be sent towards Charlotte, North Carolina. Mayor Goodwyn and Aldermen Stork and McKenzie certify that General Stone was in possession of the city an hour before General Sherman arrived, and that when they passed the cotton with Stone it was not on fire, and that it did not take fire for some time at this fire did not cause the general conflagration, and that the town was set fire to by Federal soldiers, at one time and in different places, and apparently at a given signal. Nay, in Dr. Trezevant's pamphlet General Sherman is quoted by Mayor Goodwyn as telling him, the morning after the city was burnt, that he regretted very much that it was burned, and that it was the Mayor's fault in suffering liquor to remain in the city when it was evacuated. There was no word then of Hampton's cava
