Number of Democrats
Declare They Want to Vole for Him
fur I’rpsitleni in 1 non.
A number of young men in Augusta
who are Democrats —who have been
voting with the Democratic p«rty for
vests —-have sign ill il their Intention
to organize themselves into a Roose
velt club and to vote for the Rough
Rider for president should the New
York governor secure the Republican
lor other presidential nomination.
"Wo are for Roosevelt,” said one of
'the gentlemen,concerned, ’’because we
admire the man—because he went to
the front and fought like a patriot for
his flag and for his country. We ad
mire bis bravery, his devotion and his
"We rertainly expect to see his
name before the Republican nominat
ing convention and we believe that he
will be nominated. W< would like to
cast our votes for him. We will,
when the time comes, form the formal
organization and tell him or our sym
pathy and support.
"With Roosevelt at the helm —with
men like him steering the nation—we
do not apprehend that there would be
any mo:e danger to the grand old
«hip of state than were a Democrat
in charge. What is true of us is true
of young white men all over the south.
We are not Republicans or Populists.
We are Rooseveltites.”
It may be stated in this connection
that there was any amount of betting
in Augusta on the New York election.
At first it was even money on Roose
velt but a little later the odds ware
in his favor. There ware a number of
nets made, tint the sums were not
large. Col. Roosevelt has a great
many friend* *nd admirers among the
Democrats oft this good old Democrat

were lit up all at onre n« brlxht a. ikny
llxht. We were lold it was the matta
aine In Richmond, twenty mile* away.
It made a powerful report and we
distinctly fell the earth ehakr. We
marched all the night, the next day.
Monday, and Monday night, also Tues
day and the bent part of Tuesday
night, only catching a little ten or flf
leen minute nap when halted to rest.
’Ve continued to march under the
strain, and about 11 o'clock Tuesday
•we were halted In an old Held and
! given a slice of nice lean ham. perhaps
one-fourth of a pound. This was th*’

Saturday, the first of April. I belonged
to General C. A. Evens’ sharpshooters,
end the protrr ian of the rear of the
array still devolved upon us.
Hot Times, Sure.
On Thursday the enemy moved upon
us in heavy foiee and kept us hotly
I engaged nearly the entire day firing
1 and falling hac k. On the evening of
Thunder, the Gib. the enemy pressed
ua so closely as to capture a poition
of our wagon train, hot fat from what
Is called the High Bridge, which Is
not far rem Farmvilte. I lost my
hat by a gush of wind, anil would have
been bareheaded only for one of my
comrades presenting me wi;h a Con
federate cap. By daylight Friday, the
7th of April, we were In motion and
we were deployed Just north of Farm
vllle. Our little battalion was now
reduced to a mere handful, I would say
about forty. One other man and my
self were all who represented the
Twenty-sixth Georgia in that line that
morning. But, as good luck would
have it, the enemy did not attack ns
from the rear that morning, but
flunked in and cut into the Fitzhugh I
I-ee cavalry, and he did them up in |
good shape. But eve had to abandon
a large number of our wagons. I
should have said we drew another
small ration on Wednesday. On Sat
urday, the Bth, the way appeared to bt>
clear and we marched all day unmo
lested on our part of the Hue of march.
That evening, just about cue-half hour
before sunset, wc were turned Into a
skirt of woods just upon the side of
the read, and I suppose about two or ,
two end a half miles fiem Appomattox j
Court House. We received orders to ,
prepare two days’ rations end be ready
to move at daylight the next morning.
Bui no rations came, and of course
never did. Just altar dark we heard
the booming of cannon very near us
i and right in our front, We began to
j fix our little effects for more trouble,
jWe won bad orders to full in and

right I held my gun in bead end ma t
for the line of hni>le with my xun
empty The other buy* followed eult.
We now only numbered thirty-fire
The enemy *a» «• cumin* In from
their rear Jumped up and eteckederm*.
When they mw our number they, tt
enme of them, look arms end ran beck
«o the woods In rear of u*. f mod
the line and charged us We lost five
of our ffttle bond., but we etill num
leered thirty, end we carried out sev- c
i nty prleonere. I ruehed up- n three ■
of (he Yankee* end ordered th-m to ’
throw down their gun* Two of them
obeyed at once. Th* third hesitated
I raised my empty gun nod said to ,
him: "Throw duwn that gun. or I’ll (
blow a bole through you.’’ He dropped
it and I ordered tlu-m to march and wr
marched acroaa the field In the direr
tlcn of the court house.
When we lied gene norac . unflr’d c»r j
p-rhap* l»vo hundred yard* I remarked |
thrl I would load my gun. All three
of the Yankee* mopped and said to roe
“If you have »n empty gun w > will go
hack.” By thla lime our artillery was
shelling ue furiously. I began to wave
ray old cap to surrprder to our battery. I
1 looked bark towards the woods In
my rear and U was black w-lth \nn
ke-s, and they were In pursuit and
op'ned fire on ua, so I said to ray pris
oners: "The best way out of this is
for you to go wit,h me." So they .ol- j
lowed me tc the branch below the
. court house nnd we took a receipt for
j , hem. While waiting for the receipt
for the prisoners a soldier came along
crying «nl I asked him what he ivas
crying about? and he said General L. i*
had surrendered the Confederate
states. I called Captain Ktrgler and
tc|,l him whet the man said, and I
said to him: “Captain, you had better
put that man under arrest, ns he Is
likely to demoralize the men with
such reports.” Captain Kirgler turned
to him and said through his nose: i
i “You had Letter get away from here, |
or I’ll put you under aireat.” We then
moved west across a piece of old field
rear some woods, when another fellow
came along crying and leading lilh
horse. I asked him what was the mat
ter with him. His reply was that Gen
era! l.ee nnd surrendered. We then
looked over towards the conn house
and sow ot't men falling back In line
or battle. We then felt the story of
the two men was only too true.
Wc were then marched into the
woods I have already mentioned aad
stacked our arms. Wc have heard and
heard of how kind Genera! Grant was
to issue us three days’ rations while
we were in what we called the bull
pan. He did give us three common
hard tack, and only three did we get
per day from Sunday morning, the flth,
till Wednesday morning, the 12th,
making nine in all. We were formed
In line and received our payroll and
were then marched upon top the hill I
:in or near the front of the court |
house, bsited in front of * long line of
Yankees, ordered to the front where
we stacked our anna, and we then
turned our faces homeward. And thus
ended jus; a ittls over one week of
whet I would call hard times, no eac.-
ing, no sleeping, hut lighting »u(l
marching like thunder, clay and night.
Before closing I will say on Tuesday,
