South Carolina (South Carolina, United States) (search for this): article 1
In the war of the American Revolution, three-fourths of the battles were gained by the British. They not only took the city of Charleston, but every other seaport, and almost every town in America. They marched through South Carolina, precisely as Sherman is doing now; they drove Marion and Sumter into the swamps; they marched into North Carolina, compelling our forefathers to fly to the Virginia woods, and then returned to Wilmington. They had every colony down; "gobbled up" Richmond and Petersburg; galloped through Charlottesville, and chased Jefferson to Carter's mountain. They held New York and other Northern cities; scattered the American armies like chaff, and considered the rebellion as crushed a hundred times. They had the most powerful empire of the world at their back; they had the aid of armed tories in every county; they excited the blacks to insurrection, and let loose the scalping-knife of the Indian upon the rebels.--With all our troubles, we have so far esca

been called unto the field, of which it is estimated that 300,000 have perished in battle and by disease, and 800,000 more have been lost from other causes. Even supposing this estimate correct, there would still remain in the Confederacy a full million of men capable of bearing arms. Or, if military events which have occurred since the first publication of these statements have made two-thirds of that number unavailable, there is a sufficient residue, with the negro troops requested by General Lee, to render the subjugation of such a population and such a territory impracticable. It is impossible that a people like ours, with such advantages, can be conquered unless they forsake God and forsake themselves. There never just has been a vital want of our condition which Providence has not supplied. If it was powder, if it was guns, if it was lead, it came at the right time. But we cannot expect Providence always to help those who, like the children of Israel in the wilderness
