Editor Star: The only remaining
thing that broke the thread of routine
army life while we continued tooc-
cupy Cole's Island was the expiration
of our first year's enlistment and the
immediate re-enlistment for- three
years, or the duration of the war.
This occurred on the 12th day of
April '62. On this day the first reg
iment was disbanded, but every com
pany immediately re-enlisted and was
mustered into the Confederate States
Army for a period of three years, or
the war. The men however could
each choose the company he pre
f erred to join and quite a number ex
ercised this privilege and by it three
01 four men, from other companies
came into the Edisto Riflesr- I do not
recall that the Edistos lost a single
man to go to any other company, but
two of our menThomas K. Legarie
and Medicis Rickenbaker did not re re-enlist
enlist re-enlist on the island but went home
and each organized a company and
became captain of it. The companies
raised by them united with the Sec
ond regiment of heavy artillery which
was then short two companies. This
regiment was manning the forts and
battries on James Island, S. C. Not
only were men permitted to re-enlist
in any company they might select,
but companies when reorganized
could unite with any incomplete regi regi-nient
nient regi-nient they preferred and exercising
this right the Edisto Rifles joined the
Eutaw battalion and so did four other
companies. Three other companies
which had been organized and unas unas-signed
signed unas-signed also united with us making
the regimental number of ten com companies
panies companies then required, thus changing
the designation from Eutaw battalion
to "Eutaw, or 25th Regt S. C. V., C.
S. A." Of this regiment Maj. C. H.
Simonton was promoted to colonel,
Capt. John G. Pressley to lieutenant lieutenant-colonel
colonel lieutenant-colonel and Capt. John V. Glover, of
the Edisto Rifles, was promoted to
major. This created a vacancy in our
company, and James F. Izlar rose to
captain, Samuel N." Kennedy to first
lieutenant, Samuel Dibble to second
and George Elliott was elected third.
He was first, or orderly sergeant and
his election raised all of the non noncommissioned
commissioned noncommissioned officers one point and
in this upward move Ben P. Izlar rose
up to orderly.

and batteries had been steadily going

composed of twslve men. It had been

quired acquired a fine reputation in Charleston
where they lived and other parts of
the country. It was known as Meul-
ler's Band, after Meuller who was the
leader. All of them were farmers
except two, Salters and Galway. Sal Sal-ters

guages. languages. He was above the average
height, half Spanish,' dark, angular
in build and knock-kneed, but as a
drummer he had but few equals in
fact, if he had one I never heard him
tap the sheepskin. John Galway in
these days I suppose would be classed
among the hyphenates. -He was
American born of Irish stock. He was
with Major Anderson when he moved
the garrison from Fort Moultrie to
Fort Sumter and surrendered with
the garrison when Major Anderson
surrendered. Galway was the bugler
for the federal forces and when they
marched out and were sent north he
somehow, by intentional 'accident,
dropped out and later applied for a
place in Meuller's band, and was with
the band regularly mustered into the
Confederate service as the military
band of the Eutaw regiment and as
such the entire band received the
same supplies and pay as the sol soldiers,
diers, soldiers, except arms and ammunition.
These were not issued to them as
they were not required to do guard
or picket duty nor participate, in
fights in fact it was rather an un
published order that they must not
go into any skirmish or batth? but
they all wanted to go in and in fact
did slip in whenever they had a fav
orable opportunity and though dis discovered,
covered, discovered, as they were bound to be,
yet it was passed over by the officers
who could not but admire their brav
ery' and patriotism. I remember on
one occasion seeing several of them
along in a line of skirmishers, which
was at the time engaged with the
skirmish line of the enemy, and they
had nothing, to fight with but bay bayonets
onets bayonets stuck on the end of a pole. They
did not have to wait long (and they
know it) before they got guns and
equipment from some dead or wound
ed of our men o the enemy's.
The Edisto Rifles were trained to
drill as skirmishers by the bugle call
of the commands, and it was a tre
mendous advantage to us, for when
the line was extended and firing go
ing on it was hard, and sometimes
impossible to hear the commands
from the voice of the officer, but with
the bugler at his side and the sum
mons given to him and by him sound
ed on the bugle clear and distinct, we
could all hear and know exactly what
we were expected to do. Galway was
the bugler both in our training and
in the fights, as he had the advantage
of the others of the band in getting
into the frays The band was a
source of much 4 pleasure as well as
help to us. When we were in camp
and doing nothing which sometimes
happened for quite a good while, the
band would play of an evening; the
sweet strains of the splendid music
would turn our hearts and minds
away from the hardships and Horrors
of war and soften and mellow our
feelings towards all the world: and
when they played "Home Sweet
Home" it turned our thoughts and
hearts to the sacred hearth-stones
and the dear loved ones centered
around 'them and silent prayers and
visible tears would course down, the
bronzed cheeks of many veterans. On
the other hand, one who has never
experienced it can ..not possibly
imagine the life, spirit and viw that
good martial music can throw into
the spirit, mind and frame of a body
of weary and worn troops on the
march. Many times when on a long
march we had grown so weary that
we felt like we could scarcely go any
further, Meuller's band would strike
up some lively martial air and imme immediately
diately immediately new life would be infused into
every one. Heads and shoulders
vculd straighten up, the step become
light and springy the tired, weary
feeling was gone. As wine to the
spirit, so is good, lively, martial
music to the weary body. When we
went to Virginia it was said that we
had the best military baid in the
"Army, of Northern ""Virginia," and I
believe it was so.
There is much more to be said of
the Eutaw band and the members
thereof and I may some day call them
back on the stage, but I must rest
here now and ring down the curtain
on this the "seventh act."
