A gift to SCL Manuscripts Division announced in 2008
Letter, 15 May 1861, of Gen. A.C. Garlington, Brigade Head Quarters, Columbia, S.C., to Col. Edward Manigault, reports that he had been informed by the superintendent of the Charlotte Rail Road that “there are arms for two companies on the line of that Road which were sent up some time ago, but which have probably been overlooked in some way.” | Manuscripts Gifts 2008 | Previous Issues | Endowments | Friends of the Library |
Garlington notes that one set was intended for the Cedar Creek Rifles but he had been unable to determine which other unit the arms had been designated for. “One set is at ‘Youngs’ in the car which carried them up, the other set is at ‘Blackstock,’” Garlington wrote, “and if you will send me the order I will have them shipped here and distributed” to the two rifle companies of the Third Regiment under his command.
