Editor Star: In South Caroline in
the years before the civil war, all
men physically able to bear arms,
were required by law to enroll them-i
selves in the, militia as soon as they
reached the age of eighteen years,
and serve until they were thirty-five.
The counties were divided into what
were called "beats," and in each beat
a militia company was formed, and in
each beat there was a suitable ; place
called the "muster t ground," where
the company of that beat was requir required
ed required to meet once in every two months
to drill. I do not remember (if I
ever knew) the number of beats in
Orangeburg county (or district as it
was called) but I do know there were
at least ten companies of infantry
which formed the Fourteenth Regi-"
raent of South Carolina' militia, and
this regiment was required to meet
once or twice each year at, the "regi "regimental
mental "regimental muster ground" for battalion
and regimental drill. Of course this
drilling, neither ; company '-' or ; regi regimental,
mental, regimental, amounted to much in the' way
of "preparedness" fox: actual service
in case of war. They; were only for
state service and the state! furnished
neither uniforms nor arms, but they
were organized bodies which the state
could at any time call together and
compel their service anywhere inside
of the state. Some few of these com
panies, especially those composed of
the men of the larger towns, uniform uniformed
ed uniformed and armed themselves, elected
competent officers and drilled of tener
than required by the law. These took
some pride in their organization and
gave their company a distinguishing
name outside of the letter it was en
titled to in the regiment to which it
was assigned. When a uniform was
adopted it was kept the same. As
often as new ones were needed the
same style,; color and trimmings were
ordered that had been adopted when
the company first, determined to uni
form and equip itself. Such a com
pany was ; the "Edisto Rifles" which
was composed of the men bf the town
of Orangeburg with some few others
from the adjoining country who wish
ed to belong to a .rather select com
pany and would get a transfer from
the: company of their' beat and join
the Edisto Rifles. The color of the
uniform of the Edistos was a dark
gray, cloth, and the style frock coats
trimmed with green braid and gilt
buttons. The pants were white until
the' company .volunteered for active
service when they were changed to
gray and the trimmings changed to
black. They were armed with what
was called the. Mississippi rifles, with without
out without bayonets. The accoutrements
consisted of cartridge box and cap
pouch oh a white two and a half inch
belt around the waist supported by a
strap of the same kind of material.
The belt and strap .were changed to
leather when the company volunteer volunteered.

livan's Island, in Charleston harbor,
transferred the garrison to Fort Sum-j
ter. The governor (Pickens) of
South Carolina, did not order out the
militia, but called for so many thou thousand
sand thousand volunteers. The response was
prompt, enthusiastic and overflowing.
The Edisto Rifles 140 strongre
sponded to the last man. Other com
panies were organized and without
one-third of the trouble and delay we
are seeing now, and ten companies
were soon formed and mustered into
service. Four of these companies
were from Orangeburg county and six
from Barnwell county and were at
once organized into' the First Regi
ment of South Carolina Volunteer In Infantry,
fantry, Infantry, and of this regiment the
Edisto Rifles was Company A. The
Edisto Rifles organized for active ser service
vice service on the 22nd of January 1861, and
a; short time after that the regiment
above referred to was formed. The
enlistment of all these troops was for
one year and for. service in the state
as South Carolina was then alone and
no Confederate States existed, but
stirring historic events multiplied
rapidly, and long before the year's
enlistment expired the C. S. A. had
come into existence and bloody battles
had been fought. The First Regiment
S. C. V. I. served its first year on the
coast of South Carolina' and upon the
termination of the year's enlistment
there was t unanimous : re-enlistment
for three years j or the war, for ser service
vice service in the Confederate States Army.
At this enlistment new organibations
were formed, new regiments were
created and in this new arrangement
the Edisto Rifles and. two or three
other companies of the First Regi Regiment
ment Regiment S. C. V. I. united themselves to
what was then known as the "Eutaw
Battalion," which soon filled up to the
required number of companies and
was then to the close of the war
known as the "Eutaw," or Twenty Twenty-fifth
fifth Twenty-fifth Regiment, S. C. V. I., in which
regiment the Edisto Rifles was Com Company
pany Company G. But I did not set out to
write a history of. the Edisto Rifles
and any one desiring to follow them
along in their heroic : and splendid
career through the war, can satisfy
their desire by obtaining and reading
an illustrated history of the company
printed by the State Publishing Co.
at Columbia, S. C, or "Memoirs bf the
War of Secession," written by Brig. Brig.-Gen.
Gen. Brig.-Gen. Johnson Hagood, who command commanded
ed commanded the brigade of which the Edisto
Rifles was always a part. .While; the
four ; companies ; from Orangeburg
county were encamped hear the town,
as I have above stated,; a company
flag was presented to the Edisto
Rifles by Miss Adella Felder, a sister
of the then first lieutenant of. the
company. The flag was blue bunting
trimmed with silver cord and tassels
and silver fringe.; On one side was a
white silk palmetto tree and ; a white
silk i crescent. On the reserve ; was
"Edisto Rifles" in white silk letters
Beneath the palmetto tree was a white
scroll on which .was the motto, "In
hoc signo vinces" in black, letters. The
staff was ornamented with a silver
star at the top. v This flag was highly
prized by the company and used on
all occasions until it was found that
so many flags (a number of compan
ies had them) caused confusion in
time of battle, so; all company flags
were laid aside, and only regimental
battle flags were used. Well, I guess,
Mr. Editor, and the readers, too (if
there be any) think it about time I
had reached the point where I was to
tell about, the day we started off to
the seat of war and the first cannon I
heard iired at the opening of the
great conflict. Well, I think so too,
and here it is. The First Regiment,
S. ,C. V., had been ordered to go to
Charleston to, take part in the taking
of Fort Sumter from Major Anderson
and the garrison that he had trans transferred
ferred transferred fronl Fort' Moultrie, as I have
stated. The four companies which
were encamped near Orangeburg were
ordered to entrain' at the railway sta
tion of that town, on the morning of
the 11th of April, 1861. Thefact was
known to the people of the town and
surrounding country and there was a
large crowd at the station to see the
troops "off to war.'! There were
fathers and mothers, and wives and
sisters and sweethearts. There were
hand-shakings and embraces, billing
and cooing; smiles and tears, kissing
and cheers: but through it all, the
universal language was, "God bless
you, but acquit yourselves like men,"
and the record shows they did. Now
there was an old cannon lying around
Orangeburg, a i three-pounder, which
had been there ever since the revo revolutionary
lutionary revolutionary war and had been used at
that 4time to help; defend the town
when Lord Rawdon made his raid
against it. It was an old matchlock
and was fired by touching the powder
at the vent with a faggot. It had
long before been discounted, but the
citizens had taken it down to the rail
road station and .elevated the muzzle
by placing a block underneath jt. It
was heavily loaded with powder no
ball, of course. Everything was ready,
all the troops entrained and the con
ductor gave the engineer the signal
to' haul out and the throttle was slow
ly pulled out and slowly the train be
gan to move. Then ; amid the loud
cheering, waiving of handkerchiefs,
throwing hand-kisses, the man with
the faggot touched the vent and the
cannon bang! and the report of the
first cannon I heard in the war woke
the echoes in the red hills around Or Orangeburg!
angeburg! Orangeburg! ; We were off to the war!
Our four companies together with the
six from Barnwell which followed on
another train all reached Charleston
