Heroes of the old Camden District, South Carolina, 1776-1861. an Address to the Survivors of Fairfield county, delivered at Winnsboro, S. C., September 1,1888. by Col. Edward McCrady, Jr. It is no disparagement of the rest of the troops of the State, in the late war, to say that the Sixth, Twelfth and Seventeenth Regiments, which were raised mostly from the districts of York, Chester, Lancaster, Fairfield and Kershaw, that constituted the old Camden district at the time of the Revolution, wAssembly, on the 17th December, 1860, passed an act providing for an armed military force of ten regiments, to be organized into a division of two or more brigades.

Butler and Lieutenant Colonel Dickinson, he was chosen Colonel of his regiment. When Gen. Quitman called for a flag to be raised upon the gates of Balen, Col. Gladden handed the

The Fairfield (South Carolina) Courier gives a long account of the excesses committed by the enemy in the town of Winnsboro', from which we extract the following: "Our once beautiful town presents now a most pitiful sight. Residences and stores that once lifted their proud heads to Heaven are now numbered among the things that were. Charred ruins now meet the gaze, where once the busy feet of man passed in the daily pursuits of life. And all this is done by people calling themselves men. They have belied their title, not being even fit for an association among the brutes they have slain, whose carcasses meet the eye on our public roads. "The store belonging to, and occupied by, Mr. D. Lauderdale was the first to receive the torch. The building, being old, soon ignited, and the flames spread rapidly from house to house, extending north to the store formerly occupied by Mr. Leventritt, and south to, and including, the store of
