INTRODUCTION. 



THE Kentucky Society of Sons of the Revolution was organ- 
ized at Lexington in the month of January, 1895. At a 
meeting of the Society, held on September 28, 1899, the 
first step toward the publication of a Year Book of the Society 
was taken by the appointment of Wilbur R. Smith, H. B. McClel- 
I'an and Butler T. Southgate as a committee to arrange for such 
publication. This committee was directed to report at the next 
regular meeting of the Society. The next reference to the subject 
is found in the minutes of the annual meeting held on April 4, 
1902. At that meeting the committee on the Year Book reported 
that nothing had been done in the matter and, at their request, 
this committee was relieved from further duty. Thereupon Lucas 
Brodhead was selected to take charge of the Year Book and en- 
deavor to push it to completion as soon as possible. At a meet- 
ing of the Society, held in the same year, on September 5th, Mr. 
Brodhead suggested "that it would be a valuable and unique feat- 
ure if the Annual should contain a tabulated statement of the 
genealogy of each member of the Society, showing his descent 
from the ancestor or ancestors by virtue of whose service eligi- 
bility to membership in the Society is established." The Society 
approved this suggestion and directed the committee "to secure 
such genealogical tables and to press the Annual to completion 
as speedily as possible." At the next annual meeting, held on 
April 4, 1903, the committee on the Year Book reported progress 
and asked for further time, which was granted. Mr. Brodhead 
made substantial progress with the undertaking, but did not re- 
ceive sufficient encouragement in his efforts to procure the desired 
genealogical charts, and after a time abandoned all hope of carry- 
ing the work through to completion as planned by him. Here 
the matter rested until the meeting of the Society held on March 
15, 1905, at which meeting a committee, consisting of Messrs. 
Wilson, Southgate and Smith, was appointed to prepare a list of 
Revolutionary soldiers buried in Kentucky and to secure data 
concerning the location of their graves, etc. At the annual meet- 



2 SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 

jng held on February 22, 1906, this committee reported progress 
and was continued. ' So little was accomplished along this line, 
however, that the undertaking as originally marked out was vir- 
tually abandoned. 

In October, 1906, the editor of the present volume was elected 
to the office of Secretary and it naturally fell to his lot to take 
charge of the archives and records of the Society. During the 
same year, having occasion to spend several months at Frankfort, 
Kentucky, in connection with work over the records in the State 
Land Office, he undertook to compile a catalogue of the Military 
Land Grants issued by the Commonwealth of Virginia to her 
soldiers and sailors of the Revolutionary War. Copies of these 
warrants or certificates were obtained by the Commonwealth of 
Kentucky shortly after it became a State and they are now con- 
tained in two large volumes, to be found in the Kentucky Land 
Office. It occurred to the writer that this catalogue would furnish 
a good basis for such a Year Book as the Society had sought to 
publish in previous years. Accordingly, at the annual meeting, 
held on March 21, 1908, Mr. Wilson, as chairman of the com- 
mittee to prepare a Catalogue or Register of Kentucky soldiers 
in the Revolution and of Revolutionary soldiers identified with 
Kentucky, "reported that substantial progress had been made 
with this work and, at his request, it was moved and carried that 
he be granted permission to print and publish, under the auspices 
of the Society, the digest or catalogue of names of Revolutionary 
soldiers compiled by him from records in the Kentucky Land 
Office, at Frankfort, Kentucky, and to include in such publication 
appropriate data relating to the Kentucky Society and its mem- 
bership." This action was again ratified at the fifteenth annual 
meeting held on February 22, 1910, when, by resolution, the 
Secretary was authorized to complete the preparation of the 
Year Book and to illustrate same with likenesses of members who 
might contribute as much as ten dollars apiece to the enterprise. 
The Secretary was further authorized to carry out his plan of 
publishing in the Year Book the catalogue of names of Revolu- 
tionary soldiers and sailors, to whom Land Bounty Warrants for 
Revolutionary services were granted by the State of Virginia, 
(which catalogue the Secretary had compiled in the year 1906), 
and also to publish such additional matter as might, in his judg- 
ment, be suitable for insertion in the book. 



INTRODUCTION. 3 

Since the annual meeting held on February 22, 1910, the Secre- 
tary has spared no efforts to comply with the wish so often ex- 
pressed by the Society that a Year Book be published which 
would include both a register of the members of the Society and 
such additional matter as might give it value for all time as a 
book of reference. This Catalogue of Military Land Warrants, 
granted as a bounty by the Commonwealth of Virginia to her 
soldiers and sailors for services in the Revolution, embraces the 
names of nearly five thousand men. It s'hows the number of each 
warrant, the acres of land granted, the rank, department of service 
and term of service of each recipient, and, last of all, for conve- 
nience of reference, the date of the warrant. We have every 
reason to believe that this compilation or digest is of substantial 
and enduring value and will pay for itself many times in stimu- 
lating and facilitating research for authentic revolutionary records 
and convincing documentary proofs of ancestral service in the 
Revolution. As a means for discovering dependable clues to 
revolutionary ancestry and for aiding one to trace his descent 
from revolutionary stock, we know of nothing superior to it, cer- 
tainly nothing superior so far as Kentucky and Kentuckians of 
the present generation are concerned. 

As is well known, the bulk of the land covered by these war- 
rants lies in what is now the Commonwealth of Kentucky and a 
large number of the grantees in these warrants came themselves 
to Kentucky, either to settle on their own bounty lands, or to 
speculate in them or to exchange them for other lands in Ken- 
tucky. Where the immediate beneficiaries of these warrants did 
not come, their sons or grandsons, brothers or nephews, came, 
and the reading of the names in this catalogue sounds like a roll- 
call of the early Kentucky settlers and of their descendants down 
to the present day. 

A most excellent piece of work of this character was done 
by the Kentucky Society of Sons of the American Revolution in 
the Year Book published by them at Louisville in 1896. This 
book contains a roll of the officers of the Virginia line who re- 
ceived land bounties; a roll of the Revolutionary pensioners in 
Kentucky; a list of the Illinois Regiment who served under 
George Rogers Clark and Colonel Joseph Crockett in the North- 
west campaign ; and a roster of the Virginia Navy. For this valu- 
able collection of revolutionary records, the Kentucky Society of 



4 SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 

Sons of the American Revolution, which has its headquarters at 
Louisville, was indebted to Captain Anderson Chenault Quisen- 
berry, a charter member of that Society. It may be observed 
that the catalogue published here embraces much the same ma- 
terial as that included in Captain Quisenberry's compilation, but 
a careful comparison will show that the two are by no means iden- 
tical and the additional data here given will serve, we think, as a 
useful supplement to the information furnished by Captain 
Quisenberry's excellent work. 

Some day, we trust, the claims of the pioneers of Kentucky and 
the West, who during the Revolution were engaged in repelling 
the attacks of savages along the border, will be more clearly recog- 
nized and full justice will then be done both them and their de- 
scendants. These men, in many instances, were not enrolled as 
soldiers in the Continental Army or in the military companies of 
any of the original States, but they rendered service on the fron- 
tiers none the less valiant and valuable for the cause of Indepen- 
dence and the establishment of the territorial domain of the tri- 
umphant Republic than did their brothers-in-arms east of the 
Alleghanies. The term "documentary" as applied to the evidence 
of Revolutionary services will also receive, as we hope, a more 
liberal construction and not be restricted exclusively to records of 
a strictly official character. As was said by the late Major H. B. 
McClellan, long the efficient Secretary of this Society, at our an- 
nual meeting in 1904: "Much of the history of Kentucky in the 
Revolution lies hidden and obscure. It is our duty to uncover 
that which is hidden, to throw light on that which is obscure, and 
to give to the world the true history of the men who guarded this 
frontier of our nation in the perilous days of its infancy." 

As fairly illustrating the intimate relation sustained by the 
pioneers to the revolutionary conflict and the high types of Revo- 
lutionary soldiers who shared in the making of Kentucky and 
constituted the flower of its early immigration, it has been 
thought appropriate to print sketches of General George Rogers 
Clark, General Isaac Shelby, and General Charles Scott, three of 
the more distinguished revolutionary veterans who became identi- 
fied with the new Commonwealth either during the war or im- 
mediately after its close. Not only are these men renowned 
for their brilliant and highly meritorious services in the Revolu- 
tion but their lives, as all know, were closely interwoven with 



INTRODUCTION. 5 

the early history of our State. The same thing is true of Colonel 
Robert Patterson, with the added circumstance that his connec- 
tion with the founding of Lexington makes mention of him 
here peculiarly fitting. It will be understood, of course, that 
nothing invidious was intended in selecting these particular 
worthies of the Revolution for specially honorable mention in 
the text. There were others of equal merit who might well de- 
serve a place in such a publication as this, but we think it will 
be admitted without cavil that these men fairly represent the 
generation of soldiers, heroes and patriots to which they be- 
longed. 

The sketches of our beloved President, Major.Tenney, and 
of General Bell, Kentucky's most distinguished present-day 
representative in the regular army, doubtless require no com- 
ment or explanation. Lack of space absolutely forbade more 
extended accounts of other living members of the Society. The 
papers on Revolutionary themes delivered on certain anniver- 
sary occasions by the writer are published with much diffidence 
but it is hoped they may not be thought unworthy of preserva- 
tion. The brief account of the ancient Society of the Cincinnati 
and the lists of original members of that organization in seven 
of the original thirteen States, from which most of the first settlers 
of Kentucky came, have been inserted at the end of this volume 
for convenience of reference and in the belief that the data there 
gathered together may prove both instructive and useful to all 
who may find any interest in such a book as this. But for the 
limitations of space, it would have been a pleasure to publish lists 
for all of the original thirteen States. The illustrations and 
other features with which the compilation has been embellished 
will, no doubt, carry their own vindication. 

Whatever impression, for good or ill, this volume may con- 
vey, let no one make the mistake of supposing that it was ever 
intended to minister to false pride, to inculcate snobbishness, to 
encourage tuft-hunting, to foster an aristocracy based solely on 
pride of birth or of lineage, or to war in any way against that 
noble spirit of self-reliant democracy which animated the fore- 
fathers of the Republic and which our highest aim should be 
to perpetuate in our own day and to hand down untarnished and 
unimpaired to the generations of American freemen yet to come. 
It is hoped that this book may not only accelerate the growth of 



6 SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 

our Society, but that it may stimulate research, aid in rescuing 
from oblivion the fast-perishing memorials of the past, and that 
within its covers may be found some real incentives to patriotism. 
Other demands upon his time and the distractions of busi- 
ness engagements, have delayed the publication of this volume 
far beyond the original expectation of the editor, but he trusts 
it may prove none the less welcome because it appears a trifle late. 
His acknowledgments are due all those who have aided in any way 
in its preparation and, for valuable suggestions and generous 
financial aid, he takes this opportunity to thank by name Mr. 
Lucas Brodhead, of "Okalee," Versailles, Kentucky, Mr. John H. 
Patterson, of Dayton, Ohio, Col. R. T. Durrett, of Louisville, 
President of the Filson Club, and Captain Anderson C. Quisen- 
berry, of Hyattsville, Maryland, and Washington, D. C. The 
officers of the New York Society of Sons of the Revolution have 
likewise been most kind in aiding and encouraging the prepara- 
tion of this book and the publishers of the Journal of American 
History are to be thanked for the use of one or two cuts. The 
work done by Captain Quisenberry on the Year Book of the Ken- 
tucky Society of Sons of the American Revolution, as we have 
already indicated, was particularly helpful in suggesting both 
the form and content of the present book.

Object of the Society. 



It being evident, from a steady decline of a proper celebra- 
tion of the National Holidays of the United States of America, 
that popular concern in the events and men of the War of the 
Revolution is gradully declining, and that such lack of interest is 
attributable, not so much to the lapse of time and the rapidly in- 
creasing flood of immigration from foreign countries, as to the 
neglect, on the part of descendants of Revolutionary heroes, to 
perform their duty in keeping before the public mind the mem- 
ory of the services of their ancestors and of the times in which 
they lived: therefore, the Society of Sons of the Revolution has 
been instituted to perpetuate the memory of the men who, in 
the military, naval and civil service of the Colonies and of the 
Continental Congress, by their acts or counsel, achieved the In- 
dependence of the country, and to further the proper celebration 
of the anniversaries of the birthday of Washington, and of promi- 
nent events connected with the War of the Revolution; to col- 
lect and secure for preservation the rolls, records and other 
documents, relating to that period; to inspire the members of 
the Society with the patriotic spirit of their forefathers, and to 
promote the feeling of friendship among them.

Historical Sketch of General Society. 



After earnest but ineffectual efforts, dating from December, 
1873, by Mr. John Austin Stevens, of New York, to induce the 
Society of the Cincinnati, through its President-General, Hon. 
Hamilton Fish, to enlarge and liberalize the policy of that in- 
stitution so as to admit to membership all male descendants of 
original subscribers, or of any officer who was entitled to mem- 
bership, in the Cincinnati, provided such persons should be other- 
wise eligible and acceptable, Mr. Stevens was forced to seek a 
new medium through which to collect, disseminate and trans- 
mit the patriotic fervor and aims by which he was animated. 

Mr. Stevens, who is justly revered as the Founder of our 
Society, felt that the time was ripe for the organization of a 
great patriotic Society upon the broadest foundations of associa- 
tion, catholic as to its membership in right of ancestors of the 
Revolution, and which might be made a factor for good in the 
direction of public affairs and the inculcation of principles of 
honor and patriotism in the hearts of the young. 

With faith in the goodness of his cause, he presented the 
matter to those of his associates whom he knew to be in full 
accord with his sentiments, and on the eighteenth day of De- 
cember, 1875, in the rooms of the New York Historical Society, 
a meeting was held to discuss the feasibility of this project. 

The proposition of Mr. Stevens was heartily endorsed and 
the name "Sons of the Revolution," was adopted at this pre- 
liminary meeting. 

A second meeting was had at the same place on January 
15, 1876, when Mr. Stevens presented a constitution, which, 
after thoughtful consideration, was unanimously approved and 
signed by all who were present. 

This was the institution of the Society, Sons of the Revolu- 
tion, and Mr. Stevens was requested to make such public an- 
nouncement of the fact as he might think suitable. He issued 
the following circular letter: 




JOHN T. SHELBY, 



HISTORICAL SKETCH OF GENERAL SOCIETY. 17 

"Sons of the Revolution: 

The Society of the Cincinnati, founded at West Point by the 
officers of the Army of the Revolution in 1783, originally limited 
its membership to descendants of officers in the elder branch, and, 
with a temporary and short variation from the rule, has ever 
maintained its restriction. 

The approach of the centennial anniversary of American In- 
dependence is an appropriate time for the formation of a society 
on a broader basis, which may include all descendants of those 
who served with the army of the Revolution. 

The undersigned have formed themselves into a society under 
the name of 

'Sons of the Revolution,' 

and invite the membership of all who, like themselves, are de- 
scendants of officers or soldiers of the revolutionary army. 

The object of the Society is to take part in the Centennial 
Exhibition at Philadelphia. 

A meeting will be held for organization at the rooms of the 
New York Historical Society on the morning of Tuesday, the 
22d of February next (1876) at twelve o'clock. 

All persons having a right and desire to become members 
may send their names and the names of those they represent to 
the undersigned (Box 88, Station 'D,' New York Post Office). 

John Austin Stevens." 

But few acceptances of this invitation were received, and, de- 
ferring further action, Mr. Stevens awaited with patience a more 
propitious occasion to present the features of this new Society. 

At the close of the year 1883, the centennial anniversaries of 
the evacuation of New York, and of Washington's last meeting 
with his officers, were events which indicated to Mr. Stevens 
and his associates that the time had come for a successful and 
permanent establishment of the order. 

Elaborate preparations were made for a dinner at Fraunces' 
Tavern, to be given on December 4, 1883, in commemoration of 
the close of Washington's military career, in that affectionate 
and pathetic farewell to his officers, "With a heart full of love 
and gratitude, I now take leave of you; I most devoutly wish 
that your latter days may be prosperous and happy as your former 
ones have been glorious and honorable." 



18 SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 

Here, at the time indicated, in the identical "Long Room," 
assembled a company of representative New York citizens, 
gentlemen distinguished in the mercantile world and in the walks 
of science, literature, medicine, jurisprudence and the church. 

The constitution of the Society, Sons of the Revolution, was 
presented by Mr. Stevens and his associates, and it was received 
with enthusiastic acclaim. The original document was brought 
from the archives of the Historical Society where it had been 
deposited, and it was signed by all present who were eligible 
by revolutionary descent, more than forty gentlemen affixing 
their signatures, and the New York Society was organized by the 
election of John Austin Stevens, President, John Cochrane, Vice- 
President, Austin Huntington, Secretary, and George H. Potts, 
Treasurer. 

On the twenty-ninth day of April, 1884, a certificate of in- 
corporation was executed by the following gentlemen: John 
Austin Stevens, John Cochrane, Austin Huntington, George H. 
Potts, Frederick S. Tallmadge, George W. W. Houghton, Asa 
Bird Gardiner, Thomas H. Edsall, Joseph W. Drexel, James 
Mortimer Montgomery, James Duane Livingston, Alexander R. 
Thompson, Jr., and John Bleecker Miller, and oti May 2, 1884, 
Judge George C. Barrett signed the certificate of incorporation. 

Public attention was immediately attracted to this new Society, 
and an increase of membership followed, not alone from New 
York, but from the adjoining States. 

On April 3, 1888, Mr. John Wolf Jordan and fourteen other 
gentlemen, of Philadelphia, all qualified by revolutionary an- 
cestry and some of them previously admitted to the New York 
Society, assembled at the office of Dr. Herman Burgin, in Phila- 
delphia, and organized an independent Society of Sons of the 
Revolution for the State of Pennsylvania. 

The founders of this Society were Oliver Christian Bosby- 
shell, George Horace Burgin, Herman Burgin, Richard McCall 
Cadwalader, James Edward Carpenter, Robert Porter Dechert, 
William Churchill Houston, Jr., John Wolf Jordan, Josiah Gran- 
ville Leach, Elon Dunbar Lockwood, Charles Marshall, Samuel 
Whitaker Pennypacker, John Biddle Porter, William Brooke 
Rawle, and William Wayne. 

The adoption of an insignium early engaged the attention of 
the Pennsylvania Society, and in October, 1888, a committee con- 



HISTORICAL SKETCH OF GENERAL SOCIETY. 19 

sisting of Col. Oliver Christian Bosbyshell, Mr. John Wolf Jordan 
and Dr. Herman Burgin was appointed to secure designs, with in- 
structions to consider those submitted by Major L'Enfant to the 
Society of the Cincinnati in 1783. Finally, on January 14, 1889, 
the present design was accepted, and subsequently adopted by 
the New York Society, and since by the General Society as the 
insignium of the Sons of the Revolution. During the same year, 
committees were appointed to consider designs for a rosette and 
of a certificate of membership. On November 11th, the rosette of 
the New York Society was accepted, and has since been adopted 
by the General Society. The beautiful seal of the New York 
Society was also unanimously adopted. 

Considerable diversity of sentiment had been manifested in 
the discussion relating to the selection of society colors. 

The Cincinnati had taken the colors blue and white for the 
distinctive ribbons suspending their order, as descriptive of the 
union of America and France, and the very intimate associa- 
tion of Sons of the Revolution with the Cincinnati in all patriotic 
celebrations and the large number of those gentlemen who had 
participated in the organization of the societies in New York, 
Pennsylvania and District of Columbia, forbade the great dis- 
couft-tesy of appropriating colors which belonged to them by so 
long a prescription, and the bufif and blue were selected, as being 
distinctive marks of the uniform of the continental soldiers. 

Acting under a special dispensation from the New York 
Society, granted in response to their application therefor, pre- 
sented on March 11, 1889, certain gentlemen, residing in the 
City of Washington, organized in the month of April, 1889, the 
District of Columbia Society. The founders of this Society were 
David D. Porter, John Lee Carroll, C. R. Rodgers, S. R. Frank- 
lin, Nicholas Longworth Anderson, Robley D. Evans, J. G. 
Walker, Theo. B. M. Mason, Richard Rush, W. K. Van Reypen, 
Daniel Morgan Taylor, John Schuyler Crosby, Arthur Henry 
Dutton, and Archibald Hopkins. 

In the early part of 1890, the large increase of membership 
in New York, Pennsylvania and the District of Columbia, and 
the unanimous manifestation of a desire for a closer bond of as- 
sociation between these societies, and the establishment of some 
general rules under which their proceedings might be harmonized, 
resulted in the appointment of committees from New York and 



20 SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 

Pennsylvania, to consider the feasibility of an union, and report 
their joint action to their several societies. 

At a conference of these committees in Philadelphia, Feb- 
ruary 12, 1890, to which was added Mr. Arthur Henry Dutton 
from District of Columbia, the fundamental principles for a 
General Society were evolved, and to Mr. Sims was given the 
honor of drawing a constitution. 

Clifford Stanley Sims was a Justice of the New Jersey Court 
of Errors and Appeals, and, for many years. President of the 
New Jersey Society of the Cincinnati. In the draft of a consti- 
tution for Sons of the Revolution, he took as a model, the in- 
stitution of the Cincinnati. A comparative analysis of the two 
instruments will disclose how closely he followed such of the 
sections of the institution as were appropriate for the new 
Society, adopting, in many portions, the exact language of the 
original document; and in submitting the result of his labors, he 
stated that he had omitted provisions for amendments, believing 
the course pursued by the Cincinnati, for such emergencies, to 
be the best. 

Within less than two months after its submission, the 
constitution prepared by Mr. Sims and reported by the Joint 
Committee was unanimously approved and ratified by the three 
original Societies of New York, Pennsylvania, and the District of 
Columbia. Delegates from these Societies were at once appointed 
to meet in joint convention to establish the more perfect union 
contemplated in the Constitution drawn by Judge Sims. 

At Washington, on the nineteenth day of April, 1890, in 
Chamberlin's Hotel, the deputies from the three Societies of New 
York, Pennsylvania and District of Columbia were called to order 
by Mr. Frederick Samuel Tallmadge, President of the New 
York Society, and that assemblage of distinguished gentlemen 
effected the consummation of the work so ardently desired. The 
General Society, Sons of the Revolution, was established upon 
the broadest foundations of fraternal and ancestral association, 
and State equality, and the following gentlemen were the first 
officers elected: 



HISTORICAL SKETCH OF GENERAL SOCIETY. 21 

General President, 
Ex-Governor John Lee Carroll, of Maryland. 

General Vice-President, 
Major William Wayne, of Pennsylvania. 

General Secretary, 
James Mortimer Montgomery, of New York. 

Assistant General Secretary, 
Timothy Matlack Cheesman, of New York. 

General Treasurer, 
Richard McCall Cadwalader, of Pennsylvania. 

Assistant General Treasurer, 
Arthur Henry Dutton, of District of Columbia. 

General Chaplain, 
Daniel Cony Weston, D. D., of New York. 

From such simple, slow-growing, but dignified and substan- 
tial beginnings, has developed the magnificent Society we know 
and admire to-day and which a friend has pronounced "the most 
prosperous, united, stable and patriotic organization of our 
country." 

At the Sixth Triennial Meeting held in Washington, D. C, 
on April 27-28, 1908, thirty-two Societies in as many States 
were reported as firmly established and maintaining an active ex- 
istence. Others have since been added, including one in far-away 
Manila. 

At the Seventh Triennial Meeting held in Washington, D. C, 
on April 18 and 19, 1911, delegates from eighteen State Socie- 
ties were in attendance, and thirty-two Societies, with a total active 
membership of 6,505, were reported as maintaining a gratifying 
existence. 

In all there have been fifteen meetings of the General Society 
since its formation in April, 1890. The dates and places of these 
meetings are as follows:

In conclusion, we add a few thoughts from our General His- 
torian, Hon Holdridge Ozro Collins, to whose larger "History 
of the Society, Sons of the Revolution," (1905), we are so 
greatly indebted for the condensed sketch here given. In the 
Appendix to his History, which contains an interesting and de- 
tailed account of the monuments and memorials erected and other 
valuable work done both by the General Society and by the 
various State Societies, his opening words are as follows: 

"The Society, Sons of the Revolution, has been charged with 
being only a didactic exposition of sentimental ideas; that its 
dominating principles are pride of ancestry and class exclusive- 
ness; that its most important work is devoted to the establish- 
ing of a genealogical descent through four or five generations 



HISTORICAL SKETCH OF GENERAL SOCIETY. 23 

of American progenitors, that we may say we are not as this 
publican, whose father came to us m the steerage. 

"How far from the truth are these statements, every member 
of the order knows. The millionaire, the political leader, or the 
social autocrat can not be enrolled among our membership, un- 
less he is descended from a participant on the colonial side, in 
our War for Independence, and unless he is a man of integrity, 
and respected by his neighbors. The laborer who earns his 
bread in the sweat of his daily toil, if qualified, is as welcome 
to us as he who sits in the executive chair, or presides in our 
courts of justice." 

"William Leverett Chase, the lamented President of the Mas- 
sachusetts Society, in his address of April 19, 1895, said : 

" 'The only good from such orders as the Sons of the Revolu- 
tion may be the highest good if we realize the sacred trust of 
duties, a proud legacy committed to our faithful keeping — ^to 
preserve in their purity, to broaden and ennoble by our own self- 
sacrifice and transmit to those who come after us, with no spot or 
stain, unless it be our holy privilege to pour our blood upon 
the altar of American liberty, and go to our God and our fathers 
with the only crown we revere — that of martyrdom for princi- 
ples which have dignified and elevated living, and will shed 
eternal lustre over dying to maintain and perpetuate.' "

The Constitution of the General Society. 



Done at the City of Philadelphia on the \2th day of February, 
1890, and of the Independence of the United States, the one hun- 
dred and fourteenth. 

Adopted in the City of Neiv York, March 8th, 1890. 

Section III amended April 23rd, 1892. 

Section VIII amended April 21st, 1896. 

Section VII amended April 19th, 1905. 

I. 

It being evident, from a steady decline of a proper celebration 
of. the National holidays of the United States of America, that 
popular concern in the events and men of the War of the Revolu- 
tion is gradually declining, and that such lack of interest is attrib- 
utable, not so much to the lapse of time and the rapidly increasing 
flood of immigration from foreign countries as to the neglect, on 
the part of descendants of Revolutionary heroes, to perform their 
duty in keeping before the public mind the memory of the services 
of their ancestors and of the times in which they lived ; therefore, 
the Society of Sons of the Revolution has been instituted to 
perpetuate the memory of the men who, in the military, naval 
and civil service of the Colonies and of the Continental Con- 
gress by their acts or counsel, achieved the Independence of the 
country, and to further the proper celebration of the anniver- 
saries of the birthday of Washington, and of prominent events 
connected with the War of the Revolution ; to collect and secure 
for preservation the rolls, records, and other documents relating 
to that period; to inspire the members of the Society with the 
patriotic spirit of their forefathers; and to promote the feeling 
of friendship among them.

year ; and copies of these letters shall also be transmitted to the 
General Secretary, to be preserved among the records of the Gen- 
eral Society. 

V. 

The State Societies shall regulate all matters respecting their 
own affairs consistent with the general good of the Society; 
judge of the qualification of their members, or of those pro-

this Constitution; and expel any member who, by conduct unbe- 
coming a gentleman or a man of honor, or by an opposition to 
the interests of the community in general or of the Society in 
particular, may render himself unworthy to continue in member- 
ship. 

VI. 

In order to form funds that may be respectable, each member 
shall contribute, upon his admission to the Society and annually 
thereafter, such sums as the by-laws of the respective State Socie- 
ties may require; but any of such State Societies may provide 



26 SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 

for the endowment of memberships by the payment of proper 
sums in capitaHzation, which sums shall be properly invested as 
a permanent fund, the income only of which shall be expended. 

VII. 
The regular meeting of the General Society shall be held 
every three years, and special meetings may be held upon the 
order of the General President or upon the request of two of the 
State Societies, and such meetings shall consist of two Delegates 
from each State Society and one additional Delegate for every one 
hundred (100) members or major fraction thereof; and on all 
questions arising at meetings of the General Society each Dele- 
gate there present shall be entitled to one vote, and no votes shall 
be taken by States, and the necessary expenses of such meeting 
shall be borne by the State Societies. 

VIII.

President, General Second Vice-President, Secretary, Assistant 
Secretary, Treasurer, Assistant Treasurer, Registrar, Historian, 
and Chaplain shall be chosen by a majority of the votes present, 
to serve until the next regular general meeting, or until their 
successors are duly chosen. 

(At the meeting of the General Society held in Washington, D. C, 
on April 19, 1911, the following amendment of Section VIII of the Con- 
stitution was proposed and will be voted on at the next Triennial Meeting, 
viz.: 

"Resolved, That Section VIII of the Constitution of the General 
Society be amended by adding one Vice-President for each State Society 
and adding two more General Chaplains.") 

IX. 

At each general meeting the circular letters which have been 
transmitted by the several State Societies shall be considered, 
and all measures taken which shall conduce to the general wel- 
fare of the Society. 

X. 

The General Society shall have power at any meeting to ad- 
mit State Societies thereto, and to entertain and determine all 
questions affecting the qualifications for membership in or the 
welfare of any State Society as may, by proper memorial, be 
presented by such State Society for consideration.

Historical Sketch of Kentucky Society. 



From the earliest records preserved, it appears that the Society 
of Sons of the Revolution in the Commonwealth of Kentucky- 
was instituted on June 24, 1894, and was incorporated on the 
26th day of January, 1895, and that the following names were 
signed to the original articles of incorporation, viz. : Lucas Brod- 
head, George B. Kinkead, Leslie Combs, Robert W. Woolley, 
James Duane Livingston, John T. Shelby, Desha Breckinridge 
and Wilbur R. Smith. All of these gentlemen, with the excep- 
tion of James Duane Livingston, a member of the New York 
Society, and Wilbur R. Smith, a member of the District of Col- 
umbia Society, had previously qualified for membership in the 
Society of Sons of the Revolution in the following order, viz.: 
Lucas Brodhead, Desha Breckinridge, Leslie Combs, John T. 
Shelby, R. W. Woolley and Geo. B. Kinkead. 

It further appears that on divers dates between June 3, 1895, 
and September 28, 1899, William S. Fulton, Otis S. Tenney, 
Louis des Cognets, H. B. McClellan, James Edward Bassett, 
James A. Todd and Geo. W. Ranck, formally subscribed their 
names to the constitution and by-laws as members of the Society. 

It further appears that on February 4, 1895, a temporary 
organization was efifected by the election of Leslie Combs, as 
President, and Wilbur R. Smith, as Secretary. 

It further appears that: 

On May 11, 1895, H. B. McClellan, O. S. Tenney and Rev. 
W. S. Fulton were elected members of the Society, and that a 
committee was appointed to prepare a constitution and by-laws 
for the Society, and that — 

On May 20, 1895, Louis des Cognets was received as a mem- 
ber, a constitution and by-laws were reported to the society by 
the aforesaid committee and thereupon duly adopted, and the fol- 
lowing were elected as officers for the ensuing year, viz. : 

President — Leslie Combs, 
Vice-President — J. D. Livingston,

'Secretary— Wilbur R. Smith,

and the following as the Board of Managers, viz. : John T. Shelby, 
O. S. Tenney, Leslie Combs, W. S. Fulton, J. D. Livingston, 
W. R. Smith, Lucas Brodhead and H. B. McClellan, and the date 
of the annual meeting was fixed for the 4th of July ; and the date 
of the monthly meeting for the first Monday of each month ; and 
that— 

On June 3, 1895, at a meeting of the Board of Managers, 
James A. Todd was duly elected to membership in the Society, 
and his election was afterwards ratified at a meeting of the Society 
held on July 24, 1896, and that— 

On August 8, 1895, at a meeting of the Board of Managers, 
application for membership was made by James A. Curry, J. 
Howard Curry, Butler T. Southgate and Thomas R. Morgan, and 
further that the application of Dr. Henry E. Tuley, of Louisville, 
Kentucky, for membership, on certificate from the Society of Sons 
of the Revolution in the District of Columbia, and the application 
for membership of Chas. Hodge, by certificate from the Society 
of Sons of the Revolution in the State of Pennsylvania, were 
approved; and that — 

On August 12, 1895, at a meeting of the Board of Managers, 
the report of the Registrar was received that the applications for 
membership by Thos. R. Morgan and Butler T. Southgate are 
correct, and the Board of Managers ordered their names to be 
recorded as members. Messrs. James A. Curry and J. Howard 
Curry were requested to furnish certified extracts from the au- 
thorities referred to in their applications. 

The foregoing synopsis covers all proceedings for the year 
1895. Within the first year of its existence the Society attained a 
membership of fifteen. 

By resolution adopted at a meeting of the Society held on 
March 24, 1911, the articles of incorporation were for the first 
time ordered amended. These amended articles, constituting the 
present charter of the Kentucky Society, are given in the follow- 
ing pages. 



HISTORICAL SKETCH OF KENTUCKY SOCIETY. 31 

Mr. Lucas Brodhead, who took a leading part in the forma- 
tion of the Society, writes thus of its founding : "I do not know 
of any facts concerning the early history of our Society that you 
will not find in the records. Mr. James Duane Livingston, a mem- 
ber of the New York Society, was the moving spirit in the organ- 
ization of the Kentucky Society and really organized it. I think 
I attended all of the early meetings of our Society, but remember 
nothing worthy of record that took place." 

Mr. James Duane Livingston, the prime mover in the estab- 
lishment of the Kentucky Society, testifies to the point as follows : 
"I was one of the original incorporators of the Society of Sons 
of the Revolution in New York in 1883, and was instrumental in 
founding the Kentucky Society. I never transferred my member- 
ship from New York, but the Kentucky Society accepted me at 
that time and I thus became one of the founders of the Kentucky 
Society by reason of membership in the New York Society." 

Of the other founders of the Kentucky Society, General Wil- 
bur R. Smith had joined the Society of Sons of the Revolution in 
the District of Columbia in January, 1894, became one of the 
incorporators of the Kentucky Society on January 26, 1895, and 
his membership was transferred from the District of Columbia 
to the Kentucky Society by certificate issued March 4, 1895. 

Those who were admitted members and, together with Messrs. 
Livingston and Smith, took part in the institution of the Society 
on June 24, 1894, were Lucas Brodhead, Desha Breckinridge, 
Leslie Combs and John Todd Shelby. Later Robert Wickliffe 
Woolley and George Blackburn Kinkead qualified for member- 
ship and united with the other six founders in incorporating the 
Society. The applications of each of the six new members, in 
this group of eight, were certified by James Duane Livingston 
and afterwards approved by James Mortimer Montgomery, Secre- 
tary-General of the General Society of Sons of the Revolution. 
The applications of Major H. B. McClellan and of Major Otis 
S. Tenney, both admitted to membership on May 11, 1895, were 
also approved by the personal endorsement of the General Secre- 
tary. 

To the date of this publication the Society has had altogether 
a total membership of sixty- four (64), of which number six were 
acquired by transfer from other State Societies.

While one ancestor is sometimes represented by several repre- 
sentatives, one member may represent several Revolutionary an- 
cestors. This accounts for the fact that the Revolutionary ances- 
tors represented in this Society outnumber the members who have 
joined it. It is not to be inferred, however, that all of the Revolu- 
tionary ancestors of each member have been given in the appli- 
cations. The converse of this is true in numerous instances. Such 
ancestors, however, may be added to our records at any time by 
means of supplementary applications. 

Of the sixty-seven (67) ancestors represented, thirty-four 
(34), or over half, were of Virginia; Pennsylvania furnished 
eleven (11); New Jersey furnished five (5); Connecticut fur- 
nished four (4) ; Maryland and New York, three (3) each; Rhode 
Island, two (2) ; and North Carolina, Delaware, Massachusetts, 
New Hampshire and Vermont, one ( 1 ) apiece. 

Of this same total of sixty-seven (67) Revolutionary heroes 
represented fay descendants in this Society, forty-nine (49) were 
military officers, one (1) a naval officer, twelve (12) were pri- 
vates and five (5) were civil officers or served in some important 
civil capacity. 

The Society has held at least one meeting each year since its 
organization, has for several years past tried to have each year 
at least one formal religious function of a patriotic nature, and 
has usually celebrated with an annual dinner. Its activities have 
been hampered somewhat by the smallness of its membership, but 
this drawback is one which, with proper effort, may be overcome. 
It is our hope and expectation that with the publication of this 
Year Book a wider and livelier interest will be aroused in the 
objects of the Society. 

On June 17, 1908, the anniversary of the battle of Bunker 
Hill, we entertained about thirty visitors from the Ohio Society 
of Sons of the Revolution. On October 19, 1908, the One 
Hundred and Twenty-Seventh Anniversary of the Surrender of 
Cornwallis at Yorktown, this courtesy was returned by the 
Ohio Society of Sons of the Revolution, who on that occasion 
had as their guests at dinner at the Queen City Club in Cincinnati 
certain members of the Kentucky Society, to which a general in- 
vitation had been extended. 

We contributed twenty-five dollars ($25.00) toward the 
monument, which has been erected at Annapolis, Maryland, in

honor of the French soldiers and sailors of the Revolution, whose 
remains are interred there, and which was unveiled and dedicated, 
with impressive ceremonies, during the sessions of the Triennial 
Meeting held on April 18 and 19, 1911. 

The Society has lost from its membership, by death, six mem- 
bers, whose obituaries will be found printed in the following 
pages. Without going into further detail, the state of our mem- 
bership on April 19, 1912, may be recapitulated as follows, viz. : 

1. Number of all names on rolls April 19, 1912, counted 

from the founding of the Society on June 24, 1894_. 64 

2. Lost by death 6 

3. Lost by transfer to other State Societies 4 

4. Lost by resignation, €tc 21 

Total Losses 31 31 



5. Total Active Membership, April 19, 1912 33 

To the same date only three (3) insignia have been issued 
to members. 

A duplicate card index of all members, containing a digest 
of their applications, has been prepared by the Secretary and one 
set of these cards has been filed with the Registrar-General of 
the General Society. In several instances applicants for member- 
ship have failed to prepare duplicates of their papers, but where 
such duplicates existed, these, too, have been transmitted to the 
General Registrar for safe-keeping. Any authorized person, hav- 
ing an interest in the matter, may procure from the Secretary or 
Registrar a certified copy of any application on payment of a fee 
of one dollar.

Constitution of the Kentucky Society. 



ARTICLE I. 

NAME. 



The name of this organization shall be "The Society of Sons 
OF THE Revolution in the Commonwealth of. Kentucky." 

ARTICLE II. 

OBJECT. 

The object of this society is to perpetuate the memory of the 
men who achieved the independence of the United States ; to com- 
memorate events and honor places connected with the American 
Revolution; to assist in collecting historical material and in pre- 
serving memorials relating to those events ; to inspire greater 
devotion to the principles for which our revolutionary forefathers 
struggled ; to foster the same spirit of patriotism ; and to secure 
a more faithful prosecution of these ends by the promotion of 
friendship and good-fellowship among the members of this 
Society. 

ARTICLE III. 

MEMBERSHIP. 

Any male person above the age of twenty-one years shall be 
eligible to membership in "Sons of the Revolution" who is de- 
scended from an ancester, as the propositus, who, either as a mili- 
tary, naval or marine officer, soldier, sailor or marine, or official 
in the service of any of the thirteen original colonies or States, 
or of the national government representing or composed of those 
colonies or States, assisted in establishing American Independence 
during the War of the Revolution, between the 19th of April, 
1775, when the hostilities commenced, and the 19th of April, 1783, 
when they were ordered to cease ; 

Provided, That when the claim of eligibility is based on the 
service of an ancestor in the minute-men or militia' it must be 
satisfactorily shown that such ancestor was actually called into 

(37) 



38 SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 

the service of the United States or of some one of the thirteen 
original States, and that he performed garrison or field duty; 
and — 

Provided, further, That when the claim of eligibility is based 
on the service of an ancestor as a sailor or marine it must in like 
manner be shown that such service was other than shore duty, 
and was regularly performed in the Continental Navy, or in the 
navy of one of the original thirteen States, or on an armed vessel 
other than a merchant ship sailing under letters of marque and 
reprisal ; and that such ancestor of the applicant was duly enrolled 
in the ship's company, either as an officer, or seaman, or other- 
wise than as a passenger ; and — 

Provided, further. That when the claim of eligibility is based 
on the service of an ancestor as an official, such service must have 
been performed in the civil service of the United States or of one 
of the thirteen original States, and must have been sufficiently 
important in character to have rendered the official especially 
liable to arrest and imprisonment, the same as a combatant, if 
captured by the enemy, as well as liable to conviction of treason 
against the government of Great Britain. Service in the ordinary 
duty of civil office, the performance of which did not particularly 
and effectively aid the American cause, shall not constitute eligi- 
bility. 

In the construction of this article, the volunteer aides-de-camp 
of general officers in Continental service, who were duly an- 
nounced as such, and who actually served in the field during the 
campaign, shall be comprehended as having performed qualifying 
service. 

The civil officials and military forces of the State of Vermont 
during the War of the Revolution shall also be comprehended in 
the same manner as if they had belonged to one of the thirteen 
original States. 

No service of an ancestor shall be deemed as qualifying serv- 
ice for membership in Sons of the Revolution, where such an- 
cestor, after assisting in the cause of American Independence, 
shall have subsequently either adhered to the enemy, or failed to 
maintain an honorable record throughout the War of the Revolu- 
tion. No person shall be admitted unless he be of good moral 
character and be judged worthy of becoming a member.

SECTION XIL 

ELECTION OF MEMBERS. 

Every application for membership shall be made on proper 
blanks furnished by the Secretary for the purpose, subscribed 
by the applicant, and approved by two members over their sig- 
natures. Such applications shall contain proof of eligibility, 
and a declaration upon honor that the applicant will, if admitted, 
endeavor to promote the purposes of the Society and observe its 
constitution and by-laws. 

The application shall be accompanied by a clear statement of 
the applicant's line of descent from the ancestor through whom 
eligibility is claimed, and said statement shall be subscribed by 
and sworn to by the applicant. Upon favorable decision on 
such application by the Board of Managers the matter shall be 
determined by a ballot vote of the Society, and if three votes be 
not cast against the applicant, he shall, upon payment of the 
initiation fee and first year's dues, be declared a member of 
the Society. 

It is provided, however, that a member of another State Soci- 
ety of Sons of the Revolution shall be immediately admitted to 
this Society without such ballot aforesaid, on filing with the 
Secretary of this Society a copy of his original application and a 
certificate of honorable discliarge from the Society with which

he was connected, and after an announcement from the Board 
of Managers of its approval and acceptance of said documents. 

SECTION XIII. 

EXPULSIONS AND MEMBERSHIPS CANCELLED. 

The Society may expel a member who shall be guilty of con- 
duct unbecoming a gentleman, or who shall persistently trans- 
gress, or without good excuse, wilfully neglect, or fail in the 
performance of any obligation enjoined by the constitution or 
by-laws, or by any standing rule of this Society; provided, that 
such member shall have received at least ten day's notice, in 
writing, of the complaint preferred against him, and of the 
time and place for hearing the same, and shall have been there- 
by afforded an opportunity to be heard in person. 

Whenever the cause for expulsion shall not have involved 
turpitude or moral unworthiness, any member thus expelled 
may, upon the recommendation of the Board of Managers be 
restored to membership by the Society at any meeting. The 
Society may drop from its roll the name of any member who 
shall be at least one year in arrears in the payment of dues, 
and who, on notice to pay the same, shall fail to do so within 
thirty days thereafter, and upon being thus dropped, his mem- 
bership shall cease and determine; but he may be restored by 
the Society to membership at any time, on his application there- 
for, and upon his payment of all such arrears and of the annual 
dues from the date when he was dropped to the date of his res- 
toration. 

SECTION XIV. 

DECEASE OF MEMBERS. 

Upon the decease of any member residing within the State of 
Kentucky, appropriate action concerning the same shall be taken

SECTION XV. 

DELEGATES TO THE GENERAL SOCIETY. 

Delegates to the General Society shall be chosen by the mem- 
bers of this Society at its meetings next preceding that of the 



BY-LAWS. 47 

General Society, and, failing such choice, delegates shall be 
selected by the Board of Managers. 

SECTION XVI. 

PROPER METHOD OF WEARING THE INSIGNIA. 

Sub-Sec. 1. The rosette should be worn in the left lapel of 
the coat, but never in the overcoat. Where members belong to 
several orders or societies having rosettes, choice should be made 
of one rosette; more than one should never be worn at a given 
time. It is proper to wear rosettes with ordinary house or street 
dress. No rosette of any order or Society should ever be worn 
at the same time with the insignia. 

Sub-Sec. 2. Members of the Society may wear the insignia 
on the left breast as prescribed in the Constitution. But it is 
recommended that when the insignia of this Society is used to- 
gether with the insignia of other orders or societies, the regula- 
tions of the United States Government for army officers be under- 
stood as applicable to civilians also, as follows : "The badges are to 
be worn on the left breast of the coat, the tops of the ribbons 
forming a horizontal line, the outer end of which shall be from 
two to four inches (according to the height of the wearer) below 
the upper line of the shoulder." It may be added for informa- 
tion, that the Government regulations further provide that "the 
ribbons be suspended from a bar of metal passed through the 
upper ends, and attached to the coat." 

Sub-Sec. 3. Persons who are or have been State officers are 
entitled to wear the insignia suspended from ribbon around the 
neck, and are recommended for the dignity of the Society to 
so wear it, but this ribbon should be used only with a dress suit 
or dress uniform. In the case of a dress suit the insignia should 
be drawn up to within an inch of the tie. In the case of a uni- 
form it should hang close to the opening of the military collar. 
Sub-Sec. 4. Persons who are or have been General officers 
or hold or have held the office of President or Vice-President 
of a State Society, are entitled to wear the broad ribbon across 
the breast, and are recommended for the dignity of the Society 
to wear it. But this ribbon should be used only with a dress 
suit or dress uniform. In case of a dress suit, it should be worn 
under the waistcoat; in case of a uniform, it should be worn 



48 SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 

over the coat. It is recommended that the neck ribbon should 
not be used at the same time with the broad ribbon. When the 
latter is worn, the insignia may be suspended from the left 
breast, or appended to the broad ribbon where the latter crosses 
the hip. 

Sub-Sec. 5. The prestige and influence of the Society of 
Sons of the Revolution depend largely upon the loyalty of its 
members. It is therefore deemed especially important that every 
member should possess and should use on all suitable occasions 
the emblems and insignia of the Society. It is hoped that mem- 
bers who may not have procured insignia as yet will do so as 
soon as possible. Finally, it is recommended that on all public 
patriotic occasions the officers and members of our Society shall 
urge that proper recognition be given to the representatives of 
the Society of Sons of the Revolution. 

SECTION XVII. 

LOCAL CHAPTERS OF THE SOCIETY IN THE COMMONWEALTH OF KENTUCKY. 

When ten or more members of the Society in the Common- 
wealth of Kentucky residing within any County of the Common- 
wealth outside of the City of Lexington and County of Fayette, 
and outside of any counties immediately adjacent to Fayette 
County, shall petition the Board of Managers, it may authorize 
and empower such petitioners to form a local Chapter to be known 

as the Chapter of Sons of the Revolution in the 

Commonwealth of Kentucky. Such Chapter, when authorized, 
may adopt such local regulations and by-laws as to it may seem 
proper, provided that such regulations do not conflict in any 
particular with the Constitution of the General Society of Sons 
of the Revolution, or with the Charter, Constitution or By-Laws 
of the Society in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. 

Only members in good and regular standing in the Society 
in this Commonwealth shall be eligible to membership in these 
Chapters. When any person ceases, through any cause, to be 
a member of the Society in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, his 
membership in a Chapter thereof shall automatically terminate. 

The officers of every Chapter shall be a Regent, a Secretary 
and a Treasurer, and any other officers it may desire, and an 
Executive Committee constituted in such manner as it may pre- 
scribe.

ings of the Kentucky State Society, notice whereof shall be 
sent to him by the Secretary of the State Society, and the local 
Chapters shall be amenable at all times to the State Society and 
to its Board of Managers. When an application for member- 
ship in this Society shall be made to its Board of Managers by 
any person residing within a locality comprised in a local Chap- 
ter, such application shall be first submitted to the Executive 
Committee of such local Chapter, and a report thereon to this 
Board shall accompany such application before action thereon. 

No local Chapter shall have power to involve the Society 
of Sons of the Revolution in any pecuniary obligation, and any 
such local Chapters may be dissolved by the State Society at 
any time in its discretion.

AMENDMENTS. 

No amendment or alteration of these by-laws shall be made 
unless the same be submitted in writing, signed by the member

How to Become a Member of the Society of 
Sons of the Revolution in the Com- 
monwealth of Kentucky. 



The Kentucky Society of Sons of the Revolution respect- 
fully invites attention to the aims of this organization, and so- 
licits the membership of those who are eligible, in order that its 
sphere of usefulness may be increased. Our objects are: 

1. To keep alive the spirit of patriotism. 

2. To revive the memories of the heroes of 1775-1783. 

3. To foster devotion toward the institutions of our country. 

4. To encourage historical research in relation to the Revo- 
lution. 

5. To preserve documents, relics, and individual records of 
the Revolutionary Period. 

6. To promote the celebration of patriotic anniversaries. 

7. To impress the importance of these subjects upon the 
rising generation. 

The Society is non-political and non-sectarian. 

To become a member of this Society, the applicant should be 
twenty-one years old, of good repute in the community, and be 
recommended by two members. 

Proof is required that the applicant is a lineal descendant 
of an ancestor who was at all times unfailing in his loyalty, and 
rendered actual service in the cause of American Independence, 
either as an officer, soldier, seaman, marine or minute-man in the 
armed forces of the Continental Congress, or any one of the 
several colonies, or as a signer of the Declaration of Independ- 
ence, or as a member of any Continental, Provincial, or Colonial 
Congress or Legislature, or as a civil officer either of one of the 
colonies or States, or of the National Government, or as a member 
of a Committee of Safety or Correspondence. 

The first step in applying for membership should be to as- 
certain the name of the ancestor who lived at a time that would 



HOW TO BECOME A MEMBER. 51 

possibly include him in the Revolutionary service, and the name 
of the place in which he lived. Then write to the Adjutant- 
General or Secretary of State in the Colony or State where the 
ancestor lived, and obtain from him a certified copy of the an- 
cestor's record. The certificate should be filed with the Secretary 
of the Society, together with the names of two persons who 
have signified their willingness to recommend the applicant. The 
records, in print or manuscript, of the several States, and of the 
United States Departments of War, of the Navy, of State, and 
of the Bureau of Pensions should be consulted. In referring 
to printed works, the volume and page should in all cases be 
correctly given. 

A blank form with full instructions will then be furnished 
by the Secretary. A concise record of the ancestor's service 
is required. The pedigree need be traced only to the ancestor 
who served in the war, but, if desired, may be carried farther 
back. 

Citations from authorities in proof of service are required 
from duly authenticated histories, town and county records, pub- 
lished genealogies and other printed records. If more than one 
line of descent is claimed, supplemental applications in duplicate 
should be made for each line of descent. Reference to authori- 
ties in manuscript must be accompanied by certified copies, and 
authentic family papers must be submitted, if required. Mere 
tradition is not enough. Dates of birth, marriage and death 
should be given as far as ascertainable. All applications, when 
complete, should be sent in duplicate to the Secretary. 

The initiation fee is three dollars; annual dues, two dollars. 
Price of gold insignium, eighteen dollars ($18.00) ; price of 
rosettes, twenty-five cents (25c) each. Ordinary Certificate of 
Membership, issued by the local Society, costs fifty cents (50c) ; 
engraved Certificates of Membership, issued by the General 
Society, cost five dollars ($5.00) each. Insignia and rosettes 
may be obtained from The Bailey, Banks & Biddle Company, 
Philadelphia, or through the Secretary or Treasurer of this So- 
ciety; Certificates of Membership may be obtained by applying 
to the Secretary and prepaying the cost of same. An authenti- 
cated copy of any application for membership may be obtained 
from the Secretary on payment of a fee of one dollar ($1.00). 



52 SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 

Blank applications for membership may be had at ten cents 
(10c) each. 

INSTRUCTIONS TO APPLICANTS. 

The Society would caution applicants that very little depend- 
ence can be placed on "family tradition" as to the rank held by 
one's ancestors. While authentic family records are not to be 
despised, it is nevertheless true that if family genealogies were 
to be taken as evidence, or the war stories handed down from 
one generation to another were to be believed, it would demon- 
strate that the army of the Revolutionary War was composed 
almost entirely of captains, majors and colonels. The soldiers 
of the struggle were held with such veneration by their neigh- 
bors and friends that, when they reached a good old age, nearly 
all were dubbed, by courtesy, captain, major or colonel, and 
family tradition has handed these titles down to posterity. 
Again, many were officers of militia after the war and obtained 
titles in that way. So, when the official records are examined, 
they disclose an altogether different rank, or, as is often the 
case, no rank at all, and applicants in consequence are sorely 
disappointed. 

To begin to make a search for proofs, the applicant must 
know the State from which the ancestor served; and in writing 
for information he should simply ask for the military service of 
such ancestor in the Revolutionary War, giving his name, his 
State, and, if possible, the name of the county or town from 
which he served. 

The following works may be consulted and the following of- 
ficials and others, in the various States, may be written to for 
certificates of military service, and for the fees for same: 

CONNECTICUT. This State has published a very com- 
plete Roster, containing 27,000 names, which volume is in the 
Young Men's Mercantile and Public Libraries, Cincinnati, Ohio. 

DELAWARE. Write Secretary of State, Dover. The rate 
for office copies is two cents per line, and $1.00 additional for 
certificate. 

GEORGIA. Write Secretary, Georgia Historical Society, 
Savannah, for information of Georgia soldiers. That Society

has books and manuscripts which contain much useful infor- 
mation relating to the Revolutionary period. 

KENTUCKY. Consult the Register of Virginia Soldiers 
and Sailors published in this volume, and the original records 
(Warrants, Land Certificates, Surveys, Depositions and Patents), 
in the Kentucky Land Office in the State Capitol, at Frankfort, 
Ky., and, for certified copies of Military Warrants or other 
records in the State Land Office, write the Auditor of Public 
Accounts or the Clerk of the Land Office at Frankfort. Also, 
consult the Year Book for 1896 of Kentucky Society of Sons of 
the American Revolution ; Heitman's "Historical Register of Of- 
ficers of the Continental Army" ; Saffell's "Records of the Revo- 
lutionary War" ; Collins' History of Kentucky ; Filson Club Pub- 
lications, especially Vol. 2, on "The Wilderness Road," Vol. 12, 
on "Bryan's Station," and on "Battle of Blue Licks," Vol. 16, 
on "Boonesborough," and Vol. 26, on "The Kentucky Moun- 
tains," with Pension Rolls in Appendix; Green's Historic Fam- 
ilies of Kentucky ; Virginia Magazine of History and Biography ; 
Calendar of Virginia State Papers; Waddell's Annals of Au- 
gusta County. Virginia, and other authoritative histories of 
Virginia counties; Chalkley's Abstracts from the Records of 
Augusta County, Virginia; Summers' History of Southwest 
Virginia; Draper's "King's Mountain and Its Heroes"; "Dun- 
more's War," by Thwaites and Kellogg; "The Revolution on 
the Upper Ohio, 1775-1777," by Thwaites and Kellogg; "Frontier 
Defense on the Upper Ohio, 1777-1778," by Thwaites and Kel- 
logg; "Conquest of the Northwest," by Wm. H. English;

West Virginia; Hale's Trans- Allegheny Pioneers; Albach's 
Annals of the West; "Old Westmoreland, or Western 
Pennsylvania in the Revolution," by Hassler; "The Mon- 
ongahela of Old," by Veech, and other source-books of 
pioneer history in the South and West. The earliest original 
county records of Fayette, Lincoln and Jeiiferson counties, in 
Kentucky, and of the older counties of Virginia, Maryland, 
Pennsylvania, and North Carolina, may repay careful explora- 
tion. 

MAINE. Write Bureau of Industrial and Labor Statistics, 
Augusta, Maine. Will make copies of services on file at the ordi- 
nary price for typewriting. 



54 SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 

MARYLAND. Write Commissioner of the Land Office, An- 
napolis, who will make research for name, for 25 cents, and /o 
cents additional for furnishing certificate. Examine Maryland 
Archives, particularly Vol. XVIIL 

MASSACHUSETTS. Write Secretary of State, Boston. 
No charge for making research, but, where name is found, the 
charge is $L00 for furnishing certificate. There are number- 
less printed authorities to be found in any good public library. 

NEW HAMPSHIRE. Write Secretary of State, Concord. 
No charge for making research, but where name is found, th 
charge is $3.00 for furnishing certificate. 

NEW JERSEY. This State has very complete records. 
Write Adjutant-General, Trenton, N. J. Stryker's Official 
Record of N. J. Troops, is in the Young Men's Mercantile Li- 
brary, Cincinnati, Ohio. 

NEW YORK. This State has published a Roster, contain- 
ing 40,000 names, which volume is in the Young Men's Mer- 
cantile Library, Cincinnati, Ohio. 

NORTH CAROLINA. Write to Chief Clerk in the r te 
Auditor's Department, Raleigh. Will search for name, an , if 
found, will furnish a certificate for $5.00. The Revolutionary 
rolls of this State are irretrievably lost, and all that can be found 
is a list of the officers of the ten Continental Regiments from 
North Carolina, which were a very small part of the force 
North Carolina, from time to time, put in the field; and a few 
fragments of the roll of the rank and file of those Regim 3. 
Practically all of the material in existence has been publi. .;d 
in the Revolutionary Records of North Carolina, to be seen 'r 
the Lexington Public Librarv. The Secretary of Young M^n's 
Mercantile Library Association, Cincinnati, Ohio, also has the list 
of the officers of the ten Regiments mentioned above, which can 
be consulted there. 

PENNSYLVANIA. Write State Librarian, Harrisburg, 
who will cause a search to be made to find the name, the fee 
for which will be $2.00, and if the name is found and a certifi- 
cate furnished, $L00 more, or $3.00 in all. The Young Men's 
Mercantile Library of Cincinnati has the Pennsylvania Archives 
which contain Rosters of this State. 



INSTRUCTIONS TO APPLICANTS. 55 

RHODE ISLAND. Write Secretary of State, Providence. 
The charge for making research is $2.00, and where the name is 
found and a certificate furnished, $1.00 more, or $3.00 in all. 

SOUTH CAROLINA. Write to Secretary of State, Colum- 
bia, or Secretary South Carolina Historical Society, Charleston. 
There are no Rosters in existence of the Revolutionary soldiers 
from this State, so far as known. The State has little or noth- 
ing. The New York Historical Society, 170 Second Avenue, 
New York City, has a few volumes containing some Rosters of 
officers and privates, but very meager. 

VERMONT. Write Adjutant-General, Montpelier. No 
charge for making research, but where name is found, the charge 
is $2.00 for furnishing certificate. 

VIRGINIA. The Revolutionary records in this State are 
very meager, and it is difficult to find anything; they consist 
mainly of the records of Land Bounty Warrants, which were is- 
sued by the State to soldiers who served three years or more. 
Write Mr. W. G. Stanard, 314 West Gary St., Richmond, a 
gentleman highly recommended who has given considerable at- 
tention to tracing Virginia genealogies ; he will make research 
of everything there is available at the State Capital, for which 
he charges $1.00, to be paid in advance. If he finds the name, 
he will notify applicant and will charge $1.50 more to furnish 
certificate of same. Much may be found in the Virginia Maga- 
zine of History and Biography, and in the Calendar of Virginia 
State Papers. Reliable county histories, like Waddell's Annals 
of Augusta County, also furnish much valuable and authentic 
information. See, also, Chalkley's Abstracts from the Records 
of Augusta County, Virginia, and "List of Revolutionary Soldiers 
of Virginia," published by the Virginia State Library, at Rich- 
mond, Va., and Revolutionary Militia of Virginia, by J. T. 
McAllister. 

The fees should in all cases accompany the inquiry, and where 
no charge is made for research, if the name is not found, the 
money will be returned by the officials. 

U. S. PENSION ROLLS. If applicants have reason to be- 
lieve their ancestors drew a pension, they can get a record of 
their military servce by writing the Chief of Record and Pen- 
sion Office, War Department, Washington, D. C. There is no 



56 SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 

cost for obtaining this data, and it takes ordinarily about thirty 
days to get a reply. 

The government passed no general pension laws until 1818, 
when it granted pensions to those who had served nine months 
or more in the Continental Army or Navy, but not to State troops, 
militia or minute-men. In 1832, pensions were granted to all 
ofJficers and soldiers, whether Continental, State or Militia, who 
had served one or more terms, a period of two years. 

A mistaken idea prevails that there are on file -in the Adjutant- 
General's office, complete rosters of the soldiers of the Revolu- 
tionary War, and that it is only necessary to write to that depart- 
ment to obtain a record of the ancestor's service. There are no 
complete rosters of Revolutionary soldiers in any department of 
the Government, nor anywhere else. 

CERTIFICATES OF MEMBERSHIP. 

The Certificate of Membership issued by the local Society 
is reproduced on the next page. The price of same is fifty 
cents (50c), to be paid when certificate is ordered. 

The Certificate of Membership issued by the General Society 
is shown in the Report of the proceedings of the Special Meeting 
of the General Society held in Boston, Mass., on April 19, 1895. 
It there appears as an insert between pages 54 and 55, and on 
page 54 of this Report are a description of the certificate and 
directions for securing same. This certificate is printed on 
parchment, was designed by Stanford White, and the plate was 
etched by William Sartain. The size of the plate, 19 x 24 inches, 
will permit inscribing the name and service of but one ancestor. 
To cover the cost of plate, parchment, engraving, engrossing, 
affixing seal, etc., the price has been fixed at five dollars ($5.00). 
Any member desiring either of the above certificates, will please 
send the name of the ancestor he may wish to have appear there- 
in, together with a remittance to cover cost of same, to the Secre- 
tary of the Kentucky Society.

Major Otis S. Tenney, 

OUR VENERABLE PRESIDENT. 



Major Otis. S. Tenney, LL.D., our venerable president and 
the dean of the Lexington Bar, was born on December 4, 1822, 
in Hanover township. New Hampshire. His father was Seth 
Tenney, who served in the war of 1812 with the rank of cap- 
tain, and his grandfather, David Tenney, was a soldier of the 
Revolutionary army. Major Tenney received a good education, 
entering Norwich Institute at thirteen years of age, preparatory 
to college, and graduating at Norwich University in 1845. From 
the same university, two years later, he received the master's 
degree, and in 1881, the degree of doctor of laws. After leav- 
ing the university he was an instructor in a military institute 
at Wilmington, Del., but soon removed to Kentucky, and estab- 
lished a military school at old Fort Mason, near Mt. Sterling, 
in 1847. Subsequently he began the study of law with Col. 
Walter Chiles, of Mt. Sterling, and in March, 1849, was ad- 
mitted to the bar. He continued in the practice of his profes- 
sion, without interruption, until 1862, when he began his serv- 
ice for the Confederacy as drill master for the battalion raised 
by Thomas Johnson. At the organization of this command as 
the Second Battalion, Mounted Rifles, Johnson was elected lieu- 
tenant-colonel commanding, and Tenney received the rank of 
major. In this capacity he served during the remainder of the 
war, in numerous raids, campaigns and skirmishes, was with 
Generals Wheeler and Forrest at McMinnville and Farming- 
ton, with Wheeler in Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama and the Caro- 
linas, with Morgan at Mt. Sterling, Ky., and Greenville, Tenn., 
where the famous commander was killed, with Jubal A. Early 
in the Shenandoah Valley, and toward the last of the war, in the 
engagements at Saltville and Marion, in southwest Virginia. 
When General Lee surrendered, he was still in that region, and 
thence returning to Mt. Sterling, he surrendered there, with many 
of his comrades, April 14, 1865. 

(57) 



58 SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 

When peace was restored, he attempted to resume his prac- 
tice, but was refused permission by the presiding judge of the 
Montgomery Circuit Court, who ruled that he was not a citizen, 
according to the expatriation act passed by the Kentuclcy Legis- 
lature in 1861-62. He thereupon appealed to the Court of Ap- 
peals, the highest State court at Frankfort, and obtained a de- 
cision which restored not only him, but many other Confederate 
soldiers, to their privileges at the bar. (See Ex parte Tenney, 
2 Duvall, 351, separate concurring opinions by Judges Robert- 
son and Williams.) 

Major Tenney continued in the practice at Mt Sterling until 
1882, during that time being twice the candidate of his party 
for the position of circuit judge of the district. Since 1882 he 
has been a citizen of Lexington and prominent in the legal pro- 
fession of that city. In his prime he ranked with the masters 
of the profession in Central Kentucky, but, of recent years, 
owing to the weight of advancing age he has been content to

GEORGE W. RANCK. 



GEORGE WASHINGTON RANCK. 

On August 2, 1901, at 10:47 o'clock, while walking on the 
Louisville & Nashville Railroad tracks just below Tarr's Distil- 
lery in front of the old Ater place, in the west end of the city of 
Lexington, George W. Ranck, Lexington's distinguished historian 
and literateur, was struck and instantly killed by engine No. 18 
of the L. & N. train from Louisville, due to reach Lexington at 
10:59 a. m. At the time of his tragic death he had been exam- 
ining a spot of ground associated with the first settlement of 
Lexington, and, evidently bent on fixing definitely a certain local- 
ity, had his attention wholly centered on the problem when the 
fast-moving train ran him down. 

The data he was collecting was to be used in a historical paper 
he had agreed to prepare for this Society. 

George W. Ranck was born in Louisville, February 13, 1841. 
His father, Solomon Ranck, a descendant from a Huguenot fam- 
ily, removed immediately afterwards to Shelbyville, Kentucky, 
where the son was reared. There, also, about 1855, he attended 
Shelby College, one of his teachers being J. Proctor Knott, after- 
wards Governor of Kentucky. During the school year of 1864 
he attended Kentucky University at Harrodsburg, living in the 
family of President A. R. Milligan. He followed the University 
to Lexington in 1865 and became a teacher and later principal 
in its academy. In 1868 he married Helen Carty, daughter of 
John Carty, one of Lexington's prominent citizens of that time. 
In the year 1868, by becoming editor of the Lexington Observer 
and Reporter, he began the literary work which he continued until 
his death. But ill health forced him to abandon this paper in 1871. 
From his early life, Mr. Ranck's taste tended strongly to litera- 
ture, and especially to the study of the history of his native State. 
There are few more valuable contributions to local history than 
those produced by his pen, and he was justly considered one of 
the closest and best-informed students of Kentucky history. He 
compiled his well-known History of Lexington in 1872 ; in 1875, 
"O'Hara and His Elegies" ; and in 1882, the History of Fayette 
County. Since that time he has published "Bryan's Station," 
and "Boonesborough," always devoting himself to study. Colonel 
W. H. Polk, the antiquarian and historian of Central Kentucky, 

(83) 



84 SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 

has pronounced Ranck's "Boonesborough" "the ablest and most 
comprehensive of all his works" and in his "Daniel Boone," 
Reuben Gold Thwaites, the distinguished historian of Wisconsin, 
calls it a "stately monograph." His other writings include "The 
Traveling Church" and "Girty, the White Indian." He was a 
member of the Filson Club and of the Virginia Historical Society 
and of other societies organized for historical and research work. 
While he regarded Lexington as his home, of late years he had 
spent much of his time in travelling. Though not a member of 
any church, he attended Christ Church Cathedral. He was sur- 
vived by his wife, two daughters, Miss Helen C. Ranck and Mrs. 
George P. Ross, of Lexington, and a son, Mr. Edwin C. Ranck, 
himself a writer of ability. 

In all the relations of life Mr. Ranck was a model citizen. 
Ideal in his home life, he was a loyal friend, a courageous, high- 
minded, polished gentleman. He was especially interested in the 
organization of this Society and in its work, and gave freely of 
his time and energies to its development. The value of his serv- 
ices to it can not' be overestimated, and the Society will not only 
miss his kindly and genial presence, but will continue to feel the 
loss of his faithful and painstaking labors. 



CHARLES SCOTT BRENT. 

Charles Scott Brent, a member of this Society, died in the 
city of Baltimore, Maryland, on the night of July 1, 1903, after an 
illness of some months. 

Mr. Brent was born in Paris, Kentucky, March 3, 1844, and 
was engaged in business in his native city until he came to Lex- 
ington, about twenty years before his death. Engaging actively 
in business here, he was recognized as a most important factor 
in the commercial interests of the community. He was one of the 
largest grain and seed dealers in the State, and for years a 
director of the Fayette National Bank. Courteous and attractive 
in manner, of large experience in business, scrupulously fair, just 
and liberal in all of his dealings, success followed his enterprises, 
and he was universally held in high regard by his fellow-citizens. 
He served from 1862 to the end of the Civil War as a soldier 




C. S. BRENT. 



.HENRY BRAIN ARD McCLELLAN. 85 

in the Union Army, being First Lieutenant of Company B, Ninth 
Kentucky Cavalry, U. S. A. 

Mr. Brent took the greatest interest in this Society and in 
its work, and gave freely of his time and counsel in the promo- 
tion of its interests. The value of a life like his can not be esti- 
mated. His strict integrity, unfailing courtesy, uniform fairness 
in his dealings with his fellows, his unassuming dignity and lofty 
Christian manhood could not fail to leave an impress upon the 
community in which he lived, and upon those who knew his man- 
ner of life. 

He was in his sixtieth year at the time of his death, and was 
survived by his wife (who, before marriage, was Elizabeth T. 
Young, a descendant of the Carrs and Todds of Virginia and 
Kentucky), by three sons, Alfred K., Harry K. and Charles Scott 
Brent, Jr., and a daughter, Elizabeth Brent, now Mrs. Don 
Forman. 



HENRY BRAINARD McCLELLAN. 

Major H. B. McQellan, for thirty-four years Principal of 
Sayre Institute, was, on Saturday, October 1, 1904, stricken with 
apoplexy while attending services in the First Presbyterian 
Church and later in the same day died at his home on Park 
Avenue, in the city of Lexington. Born in Philadelphia, Pa., on 
October 17, 1840, he lacked but a few days of being sixty-four 
years of age. He was descended from an old Connecticut family, 
his grandfather serving with merited distinction in the war of 
the Revolution. Major McClellan himself served with distinction 
in the Confederate Army, rising from the ranks. He entered the 
army in May, 1861, as a private in the Third Virginia Cavalry, 
C. S. A. Early in the war he was made Second Lieutenant and 
Adjutant in General Fitzhugh Lee's brigade. He served on the 
Peninsula under General Magruder and during the Battle of 
Chancellorsville was promoted to the rank of Major. During the 
third and fourth years of the war he served, with the rank of 
Major, as Assistant Adjutant General and Chief of Staff of the 
Cavalry Corps, Army of Northern Virginia, under General J. E. 
B. Stewart, and after Stewart's death under General Wade Hamp- 



86 SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 

ton. For three months previous to his assignment to General 
Hampton's command he was on the personal staff of General 
Robt. E. Lee. 

Major McClellan came to Kentucky shortly after the close of 
the war. In 1869 he was Assistant at Sayre Institute. The fol- 
lowing year he was elected its Principal and served continuously 
in that capacity until his resignation at the conclusion of the school 
session ending in June, 1904. During the thirty-four years of his 
principalship, more than 400 young women were graduated from 
Sayre Institute. Among these are found some of the most promi- 
nent women in Kentucky and other States. Until co-education was 
instituted in colleges and the tuition of girls' schools cheapened, 
Sayre Institute, under Major McClellan, became one of the most 
famous schools for young ladies in the South, as many as 303 
students having matriculated in a single year. 

In spite of the exacting nature of his duties as the head of a 
large school, Major McClellan found time to produce some valu- 
able military papers, particularly in relation to cavalry operations 
in the Civil War. At the reunion of the Army of Northern Vir- 
ginia, held at Richmond, Virginia, on October 27, 1880, he deliv- 
ered the chief address. In 1885 he published his "Life and Cam- 
paigns of Major-General J. E. B. Stewart," a valuable contribu- 
tion to the literature of the Civil War. 

He was a devoted member of the Kentucky Society of Sons 
of the Revolution, untiring in his efforts to promote its growth 
and welfare, and ready at all times to render service in its behalf. 
At the time of his death he was the Society's honored Secretary, 
to which office he had been elected for several successive terms. 

Major McClellan was a Southerner only by adoption. He was 
born in Philadelphia and educated in Massachusetts. At the age 
of eighteen, after graduating from Williams College, he went to 
Virginia, where, until the breaking out of the war he worked on 
a plantation and taught a private school in Cumberland County. 
During his short stay in Virginia he early fell in love with the 
generous character of its people, and in the war espoused the 
cause of his adopted home. 

On the 2d of June, 1904, Sayre Institute (now Sayre College) 
celebrated its semi-centennial, and at the same time the 34th anni- 
versary of Major McClellan's principalship. At that time many 
beautiful and deserved compliments were paid to him. As a citi-

zen and man he stood for all that was good and noble in the 
community. His life was above reproach and an example to all 
who knew him. He left the imprint of 'his character upon his 
students and, more than any other individual, was responsible 
for the noble work done by the institution of learning, over which 
he so long presided. In this and other States he was honored 
and loved by many, in hundreds of homes where his death was 
mourned as that of a father. 

On December 31, 1863, he was married to Catharine, daughter 
of George H. Matthews, of Buckingham County, Virginia. Mrs. 
McClellan was always an invaluable helpmate to her husband, 
sharing with him the management and responsibilities of Sayre 
Institute. 

Major McClellan was survived by his wife and six children, 
one son and five daughters. They are: Dr. John Hancock Mc- 
Clellan, of Chicago, 111., and Miss Mary C. McClellan, a graduate 
in medicine, who is also practicing her profession in Chicago. 
Misses Margaret and Georgia McClellan are teachers of excel- 
lent capacity, engaged in school work, the former in Lexington, 
Ky., and the latter in Chicago. The two remaining daughters, 
Anna and Emily McClellan are married, the former being the 
wife of John E. Holloway, of Biarritz, France, and the latter 
the wife of Rev. Albert R. Vail, of Urbana, Illinois. 



WILLIAM CAMPBELL PRESTON BRECKINRIDGE. 

William Campbell Preston Breckinridge was born near Balti- 
more, Maryland, on the 28th of August, 1837, and died in Lex- 
ington, Kentucky, November 19, 1904. He was liberally educated, 
being a graduate of Center College, of Danville, Kentucky, in the 
famous class of 1855 and of the Louisville Law School. His 
career at the bar was begun under favorable circumstances. Thor- 
oughly equipped with a comprehensive education and endowed 
by nature with superior mental ability, his advancement in his 
chosen profession was steady and rapid. He practiced law in 
Lexington from 1858 till September, 1861. His army service, 
however, interrupted his early career at the bar, for during the 
Civil War he espoused the cause of the South under the leader-

ship of his illustrious cousin, John C. Breckinridge, and as a 
captain in General Morgan's cavalry command went forth to 
battle for the Southern Confederacy. He was a brave and fear- 
less soldier, and rose to the rank of Colonel of the Ninth Kentucky 
Cavalry, C. S. A. 

For two years after his return home he edited the Lexington 
Observer and Reporter, and then again turned his attention to 
the law, in which field of endeavor he rapidly rose to distinction. 
He was also chosen as one of the professors of law in the Ken- 
tucky (now Transylvania) University. His congressional record 
is a matter of history. For five successive terms he was elected 
to represent the Lexington or Ashland District in the law-making 
body of the nation, and served from the Forty-ninth to the Fifty- 
third Congress, 1885-1895, inclusive, being elected each time with- 
out serious opposition. He was recognized as one of the most 
gifted orators in the House of Representatives, and his eloquence 
and masterful understanding of the issues discussed, conspicu- 
ously that of the tariff, won him a national reputation. After his 
retirement from office he practiced law in Lexington and con- 
tinued to practice law until his death. For the seven last years 
of his life he was editor of the Lexington Herald. His law part- 
ner for nearly thirty years before his death was Hon. John Todd 
Shelby, of the Lexington Bar. In his prime he was one of the 
most brilliant orators in America and was familiarly known as 
"the silver-tongued orator" of Kentucky, and his pre-eminence as 
a lawyer and writer was widely recognized. 

In 1894 Colonel Breckinridge was not a candidate for the con- 
gressional election, having been defeated in the primary by W. C. 
Owens, of Georgetown. In 1896 he espoused the cause of that 
branch of the Democratic party represented in the Indianapolis 
convention and was one of the most prominent figures in that 
body of men gathered as the "exponents of good government and 
sound money," as opposed to the "Chicago platform" and the 
candidacy of William J. Bryan. He made an active canvass in 
behalf of the principles enunciated there, and was a factor in the 
success of the issue. He was defeated for re-election, although 
he received a vote in the Seventh, or Ashland, District, where he 
was a candidate of the "sound-money Democracy" and the Repub- 
lican party combined, largely in excess of any previously given 
to him in any of his successful campaigns. He was a candidate

not from choice, but from necessity, and was well content to 
remain in his home and at his law practice rather than to again 
enter the arena of politics. 

Colonel Breckinridge was thrice married. First to Lucretia 
Hart Clay, granddaughter of Henry Clay and daughter of 
Thomas Hart Clay. Secondly, to Issa Desha, daughter of Dr. 
John R. Desha and granddaughter of Governor Joseph Desha. 
His third wife was his cousin, Mrs. Louise Scott Wing, daugliter 
of Robert W. Scott and widow of Rumsay Wing, United States 
minister to Ecquador. Of his children, Desha Breckinridge, after 
graduating at Princeton, was educated in the law in his father's 
office and in the law department of the University of Columbia 
(now George Washington University), admitted to the bar at 
Lexington in 1892 and afterwards associated with his father, has 
for sixteen years been principal owner and editor of the Lexington 
Herald. Sophonisba Preston Breckinridge, a daughter, was ad- 
mitted to the Lexington Bar in December, 1896, but after prac- 
ticing there but a short time, pursued her studies to the Doctor's 
degree in the T^niversity of Chicago, and has been ever since con- 
nected with that institution. She has written much on economic 
and social subjects. Ella D. Breckinridge, another daughter, is 
the wife of Judge Lyman Chalkley, of Lexington. Curry Breck- 
inridge, the youngest daughter, has interested herself in educa- 
tional work. 

TRIBUTES. 

(By James Poyntz Nelson.) 

The simplicity of Colonel Breckinridge's life forbids any ex- 
travagant praise of him. The very language of justice to his 
character seems like an exaggeration. The portrait of one be- 
loved, be it ever so perfect, is only an illustration of the original. 
To us who knew this great man, in his many-phased, wonderful 
life, any portrayal of him must be insufficient. This tribute is only 
the words of him who would speak not completely, but justly and 
lovingly. Carlyle, in his essay on Robert Burns, draws a fine 
picture of the storm-beaten vessel as it casts anchor at last in its 
safe harbor. What if its sails are rent and its rigging torn and 
its hull scarred by pitiless gales and relentless seas ? The Master 
has brought his precious cargo safe and duty is fulfilled. Through

stress and storm Colonel Breckinridge brought the precious cargo 
of his soul safe into port and delivered it to the God who gave it. 
Conflicts beset his way, but we know the splendor of his courage. 
He was a man of incomparable gifts. Many and rare virtues 
shone throughout his life. In his great public career he was un- 
tainted by failure to fulfill the obligations put upon him. We take 
measure of his greatness should we look about us for some one 
to fill his place. The State is bereft and we are without a leader. 
Where can Kentucky find such another son? Where for her 
people is such another wise counselor? He belongs to a day of 
splendid things. He leaves us comfortless. We call the roll of 
those who once made Kentucky foremost in our nation's councils. 
No answer. Behold our house is left unto us desolate. Colonel 
Breckinridge was an analyst, pre-eminently a teacher. He loved 
to define and to instruct, and his instruction was a delight for its 
lucidity. He gave of himself always the best. Nothing was too 
simple for him to lend it his serious thought. Nothing too great 
for him to master. A child's question was as worthy of thought- 
ful answer as that of the most learned. The answer to the child 
was as full of the Master's wisdom as that to the seeker after 
profound truth. To him truth was positive and all truth momen- 
tous. His mind dwelt with truth and kept fellowship with wis- 
dom. To one he was the brave soldier; to another the wise 
statesman, the convincing pleader, the orator with lips aglow with 
divine fire. To many he was a soul in love with the true, the 
beautiful, the good, a mind illumined by transcendent knowledge. 
His lips spoke only that which is pure and just and right. He 
was an honest man. He was beloved. He led us, and to follow 
him, whether in victory or defeat, was a privilege, our pride and 
our delight. 

Eminent among Colonel Breckinridge's virtues was his intel- 
lectual integrity, linked with lofty intellectual courage. Thor- 
oughly equipped and disciplined, his mind met every question 
squarely, without prejudice, and then gave answer in language 
that left no room for doubt. Whatever he touched he illumined. 
The learning of others was purer from his using. 

Men's hearts throbbed in response to the power of his words 
and he swayed them at his will. But he moved them with lofty 
motives, with sublime purposes, to right issues. 



WILLIAM CAMPBELL PRESTON BRECKINRIDGE. 91 

To think of him as gone is as though life had lost something 
of its strength and reality. Yet he is not lost to us, for our love 
for him has made him part of us. It enfolds and enshrouds him. 
His gentleness and courtesy, his sweetness and helpfulness, are 
as dear to us as his wisdom and greatness. Too sacred, save for 
tenderest recollections, are the evidences that he gave of his bene- 
ficent friendship. These we keep with those treasures that men 
hold dearest, and dying make mention of. 

(By Dr. John A. Lewis.) 

On Saturday, November 19, 1904, at the silent hour of mid- 
night, when the intelligence was flashed over our broad land that 
the noble and generous heart of Colonel W. C. P. Breckinridge 
had been stilled, and that his great brain had ceased its activity 
forever, deep sadness came to the heart of many a comrade who 
wore the gray. Others knew him and loved him and ad- 
mired him as a politician, statesman, lawyer, orator, but 
none knew him and none loved him as did we, his old soldiers 
and comrades who followed him through long years of danger 
and privation on the tented field. As our captain, our colonel, 
our brigade commander, we had followed him upon many a 
hard-fought field. Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, 
South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia had all been eye- 
witnesses to our conflicts. Nothing daunted us, neither the suns 
of summer nor the storms of winter, nor mountains, nor swollen 
rivers, nor miry roads, nor hunger, nor thirst, nor the battle, if 
he was at the fore. As Captain commanding his old company, or 
as Colonel commanding his own beloved regiment, the Ninth 
Kentucky Cavalry, or as Acting Brigadier in command of the 
Kentucky Cavalry Brigade ; whether under the command of Gen- 
eral John H. Morgan or "Fighting" Joe Wheeler, he never failed 
to receive from his superiors praise and recognition for his sol- 
dierly qualities. He was a superb soldier, brave, faithful, constant, 
unfaltering, honored and beloved — even adored — by every good 
and true soldier in his regiment. His soldiers knew that he had 
a brave and generous heart, because he shared with them their 
every hardship and their scanty rations and braved with them the 
storm of battle on many a trying day. How I wish he could have 
bequeathed to some friend or comrade his noble and generous 
nature, his soldierly qualities and his great brain, with its store-

house of knowledge. What a blessing it would have been to the 
human family! To me it has always seemed inexpressibly sad 
that for a human being gifted by nature, after being carefully 
reared and trained by loving hands at great outlay of treasure 
and labor, then having passed through the rich school of experi- 
ence, going oat fully equipped for the grave responsibilities of 
life, having arrived at that point in his existence when he might 
prove a real blessing to mankind, his time is up, the gavel falls 
and his voice is forever hushed in the corridors of time. To-day 
we stand in the presence of just such a picture. What a mine of 
treasure was lost to the world when the great heart of Colonel 
Breckinridge ceased to beat, and his great brain ceased to think ! 
To-day peace to his ashes, and all honor to his illustrious memory. 



JAMES ANDREW CURRY. 

On March 29, 1909, at his home at 615 North Broadway, in 
Lexington, Kentucky, died, in his eighty-first year, James Andrew 
Curry, one of the best known and best-loved men of that city. 

He was born in Harrodsburg, Kentucky, on January 23, 1829, 
and, after little more than three years of training in country 
schools of his native county, he secured, at the early age of fif- 
teen, a position in the Harrodsburg Post Office. At sixteen years 
of age he was apprenticed to an uncle to learn the tailor trade. 
Completing his apprenticeship in four years, he then engaged in 
the merchant tailoring business on his own account. This lasted 
but a year or two, when he found his interest drawn to the drug 
business. He was connected with the drug business in Harrods- 
burg until 1878, when he sold out and moved to Danville, Ky. 
There he carried on the same business until 1883, when he came 
to Lexington. In this city he became a member of the wholesale 
grocery firm of Curry, Tunis & Norwood, the name under which 
the firm continued until Mr. Curry's death. 

The name of James A. Curry is connected with practically all 
of the efforts for the better development of the civic life of Lex- 
ington that were undertaken after he came to make that city his 
home. He was a philanthropist of the noblest type, a prominent 
churchman, financier, public-spirited citizen and successful busi-

ness man. His whole life was one of usefulness to many indus- 
tries and institutions. 

He was an elder in the Second Presbyterian Church for more 
than thirty years, and was ever active in the affairs of the church. 
He was also one of the chief factors in establishing the Young 
Men's Christian Association building in Lexington, and was the 
largest individual contributor to the fund that erected the beau- 
tiful structure. He became President of the Association in 1894, 
and continued so until the time of his death. He was vitally in- 
terested in the efforts of young men to better themselves, and 
many who were never connected with the Y. M. C. A. were helped 
through a college course or started in a profitable business career 
by his kindly interest and generosity. The Good Samaritan Hos- 
pital was another one of the important public charities which 
he signally befriended. 

Mr. Curry celebrated his eightieth birthday in January, 1909, 
but, until a few days before the end, there was scarcely any re- 
laxation in his business duties. He seemed as hale and hearty as 
in the days of young manhood. 

There is always a shock when a widely-known man passes 
away, but the sure test of his greatness and worth is the sense 
of loss felt after the shock is past. As years roll by men are 
forgotten, but if their lives have not been failures, their works 
do not die. All over Kentucky the name of James Andrew Curry 
is linked with the memory of good deeds. Lasting monuments, in 
the hearts of friends, are reared in Lexington and throughout his 
native State to the worth of this Christian gentleman. But the 
world is better because of the life of the man, by whose death in 
the fullness of his fruitful years, many were made to grieve. 

Two sons and two daughters survived him: J. Howard Curry, 
until recently head of the large wholesale grocery house of Curry, 
Brown & Snyder, of Lexington ; T. P. Curry, of Danville, Ken- 
tucky ; Mrs. J. T. Tunis, of Lexington, Kentucky ; and Mrs. C. H. 
Tebbitts, of Pittsburg, Pennsylvania.

RURIC NEVEL ROARK. 

Dr. Ruric N. Roark, President of the Eastern Kentucky State 
Normal School, of Richmond, Kentucky, and one of the most 
widely-known educators of the day, died in his fiftieth year on 
April 14, 1909, at the Good Samaritan Hospital in Cincinnati, 
where he had been under treatment from a general breakdown due 
to overwork. 

In the midst of his initiatory work of making the Kentucky 
State Normal School, in the Eastern District, a great professional 
institution, he was called away from his plans to higher things. 
He was just entering upon work in what he considered to be his 
sphere of greatest usefulness. 

Dr. Roark was born at Greenville, Muhlenberg County, Ken- 
tucky, May 19, 1859. He was educated in the Greenville Academy 
and in the National University at Lebanon, Ohio, where he was 
graduated in 1881. He married Miss Mary Creegan at Lebanon 
in 1882. He taught for several years in his alma mater. In 1885 
he established the Glasgow Normal School at Glasgow, Kentucky, 
where he remained four years, when he was selected as Dean of 
the Pedagogical Department of State University at Lexington, 
Kentucky. In this position he remained for seventeen years, ful- 
filling his duties most acceptably and meeting with remarkable 
success. He resigned in 1905. 

After spending a year in post-graduate work in Clark Uni- 
versity, at Worcester, Massachusetts, he was selected as President 
of Eastern Kentucky State Normal School, in which position he 
remained up to the time of his death. Dr. Roark received the 
degree of Ph. D. from the National Normal University at Leb- 
anon, Ohio, in 1896. He was the author of some popular teachers' 
professional books. Chief among these is his Psychology in Edu- 
cation, which has had an extensive influence. His other books 
are Economy in Education, Method in Education and General 
Outline of Pedagogy. These text-books have all commanded a 
wide sale. He also contributed a number of valuable articles on 
educational topics to various magazines and teachers' journals. 

He was considered by experienced educators to be one of the 
best institute conductors in the South and did a great deal of that 
work in this State. His work in that line was not confined to

Kentucky, but extended into a number of other States, where his 
ability won for him an enviable place among the prominent edu- 
cators of the country. He was one of the most prominent and 
efficient leaders in the teachers' fight for better educational facili- 
ties in the State and for higher salaries, and much of the success 
of this movement is due to his untiring efiforts. 

Dr. Roark was a member of the First Presbyterian Church of 
Richmond. 

After Dr. Roark's death the affairs of the Normal School 
were conducted for a time by his accomplished wife, and since 
the election of Prof. J. G. Crabbe (formerly State Superintendent 
of Public Instruction) to the Presidency of the Normal School, 
Mrs. Roark has held the position of Dean of Women. 

The following is a tribute to Dr. Roark by Mr. P. W. Grin- 
stead, of Campbell County, Kentucky, a member of the Board of 
Regents of the Normal School and a personal friend of Dr. Roark : 

While yet at the meridian of life, as one would think, and 
just as his long-cherished plans and life-time hopes for better 
educational ideals in Kentucky were being realized, the death of 
Dr. Roark comes with grievous shock to the people of this, his 
native State. Few men have lived and worked to a more fruitful 
end than he. The death of no man has caused the State-wide, 
personal grief that will be felt when his passing is known to our 
people. Scarcely can there be found even a small community in 
the State that has not felt his gentle, genial influence, either as a 
teacher, as institute lecturer, or as a writer upon educational 
topics. He has instructed the present generation of the Common- 
wealth, and has thus created for them ideas of fundamental living 
and therefore of enduring character upon which the future Ken- 
tucky is to be builded. 

Born in Muhlenberg County, in May, 1859, his early educa- 
tion was in the common schools and in Greenville Academy. 
Thence he went to Ohio for his higher education, graduating from 
the National Normal University at Lebanon in 1881, where he 
also taught for four years, and where he married Miss Mary 
Creegan the year following his graduation. He then returned 
to Kentucky and became President of the Glasgow Normal 
School, where he remained until 1889, when he was appointed 
dean of the Normal Department at State College, which position 
he held for seventeen years. It was here that he really did his 



96 SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 

life's work. As head training teacher of the student teachers of 
the Commonwealth, he was the fountain head of inspiration. 

A thorough and painstaking student himself, he became the 
personal ideal of those who came to his classes. A cheerful, 
happy, optimistic gentleman in personality, he showed, without 
preachment or precept, how to get happiness by giving pleasure 
and good cheer, as the flower sheds perfume without losing its 
fragrance, or as the bird warbles its own joy into the world about 
it. This spirit has not died. It will remain among us, inspiring 
and yet to inspire our youth. Those who shall never see this 
great, good teacher and lover of his fellowmen, and even those 
who shall never hear his name spoken, shall yet receive the benefi- 
cence of his gracious spirit, reflected and reproduced in others, 
again living and blessing those upon whom its benign influence 
may fall. 

Not only did he teach Kentuckians how to think and how to 
live, but he wrote books for his profession. His "Psychology in 
Education," "Methods in Education" and "Economy in Educa- 
tion" are standard works everywhere — even in foreign lands. 
Thousands of American teachers read them as they prepare them- 
selves for their chosen profession. 

For years Dr. Roark has been in great demand in other States 
for educational lectures and as an instructor of teachers' insti- 
tutes. Many times he has been called to positions in other States. 
But he loved Kentucky. His greatest desire was to be of service 
to his State. The duty uppermost and nearest and dearest to him 
was the betterment of educational conditions in Kentucky. It 
was he more than any one man who showed the need of trained, 
better educated teichers, and created by his example, by his in- 
spiration, and by his work such a sentiment in favor of State 
Normal Schools that the Legislature, in 1906, by unanimous vote 
of both Houses, established two such institutions. Now, three 
years after their establishment, 1,800 students are being trained 
in these normal schools. But he did not go to the Legislature to 
ask for normal schools. He was quietly pursuing his advanced 
studies at Clark University, far away from where his work had 
been done, having resigned his position at State College the year 
before in order to again become a student. 

When the Governor appointed the Regents for the State 
Normal Schools, Ruric Nevel Roark's name was the only one 



RURIC NEVEL ROARK. 97 

mentioned for President of the Eastern School at Richmond. 
With one accord they asked him to take charge of the school. 
Without hesitation, without inquiring what the salary was to be, 
and without even waiting but a few days to receive from Clark 
University the doctor's degree, for which he had been studying, 
he came at once back home and entered again upon his great 
work, that of building for the "Great Empire of Eastern Ken- 
tucky," as he was wont to call it, a school to train the teachers 
of our children for all time to come. In this arduous labor he 
shed his life's blood. Surrounded with difficulties of all kinds — 
lawsuits, lack of adequate funds, meagre accommodations, a small 
faculty — he toiled on, and lived only to know that the school is 
assured of permanent State support and adequate income to make 
it what it should be. But it is the irony of fate, as he is being 
laid to rest in the Richmond cemetery, that a number of magnifi- 
cent new buildings are being erected upon the campus of the 
school he hoped to see grow into the full stature of his splendid 
conception. May we hope that one of these new temples of learn- 
ing shall be made to commemorate his name ! He could not wish 
a fitter monument to his work. 

In another month he would have been but fifty years old. A 
quarter of a century covers practically his career of quiet, but 
patient usefulness. And yet he did so much, for which generations 
to come shall bless him, that it can be truly and affectionately 
said : "He has not lived in vain."

PROSPICE. 

Fear death? —to feel the fog in my throat, 

The mist in my face, 
When the snows begin, and the blasts denote 

I am nearing the place, 
The power of the night, the press of the storm, 

The post of the foe; 
Where he stands, the Arch Fear in a visible form, 

Yet the strong man must go: 
For the journey is done and the summit attained. 

And the barriers fall. 
Though a battle's to fight ere the guerdon be gained, 

The reward of it all. 
I was ever a fighter, so — one fight more. 

The best and the last! 
I would hate that death bandaged my eyes, and forbore, 

And bade me creep past. 
No ! let me taste the whole of it, fare like my peers. 

The heroes of old, 
Bear the brunt, in a minute pay glad life's arrears 

Of pain, darkness and cold. 
For sudden the worst turns the best to the brave, 

The black minute's at end. 
And the elements' rage, the fiend-voices that rave, 

Shall dwindle, shall blend, 
Shall change, shall becomie first a peace out of pain. 

Then a light, then thy breast, 
O thou soul of my soul ! I shall clasp thee again,— 

And with God be the rest!

DUTY. 

Yea, kt all good things await 

Him who cares not to be great, 

But as he saves or serves the state. 

Not once or twice in our rough island-story, 

The path of duty was the way to glory: 

He that walks it, only thirsting 

For the right, and learns to deaden 

Love of self, before his journey closes. 

He shall find the stubborn thistle bursting 

Into glossy purples, which outredden 

All voluptuous garden-roses. 

Not once or twice in our rough island-story, 

The path of duty was the way to glory: 

He, that ever following her commands. 

On with toil of heart and knees and hands. 

Thro' the long gorge to the far light has won 

His path upward, and prevarl'd. 

Shall find the toppling crags of Duty scaled 

Are close upon the shining table-lands 

To which our God Himself is moon and sun. 

Such was he: his work is done. 

But while the races of mankind endure, 

Let his great example stand 

Colossal, seen of every land. 

And keep the soldier firm, the statesman pure : 

Till in all lands and thro' all human story 

The path of duty be the way to glory. 

From "Ode on the Death of the Duke of Wellington;" Tennyson.

JAMES FRANKLIN BELL, 

MAJOR-GENERAL U. S. ARMY. 

General James Franklin Bell, Major-General in the United 
States Army, was born near Shelbyville, in Shelby County, Ken- 
tucky, on January 9, 1856. Only a meagre summary of his 
arduous and eventful career can be given here. He received his 
preparatory education in the public schools of Shelbyville, and, 
in 1874, entered as a cadet the United States Military Academy 
at West Point, New York. From this historic institution he 
graduated with honor in 1878. Was at once commissioned 
Second Lieutenant and, later, as First Lieutenant of Cavalry. 
He served on the plains in the Seventh U. S. Cavalry, Custer's 
old command and a crack regiment, from 1878 to 1894. Cap- 
tured a band of half-breed Cree Indians, near Fort Buford, 
South Dakota, in 1883. Served in the Sioux Campaign, around 
Pine Bridge, South Dakota, in 1891. Was Adjutant of regiment 
and Secretary of Cavalry and Light Artillery School, 1891-1894, 
and Aide to General J. W. Forsyth, in California, Arizona, and 
the State of Washington, in 1895-1898. Served with marked dis- 
tinction in the Spanish-American Campaign in the Philippine 
Islands and in the Philippine insurrection. Was promoted Cap- 
tain, U. S. A., in March, 1899. On March 7, 1899, was wounded 
in action at San Juan del Monte, Philippine Islands. On July 
5, 1899, was appointed Colonel of Volunteers, and organized the 
Thirty- Sixth Infantry, U. S. Volunteers, in the Philippine Islands 
during the same month. He continued in command of this regi- 
ment until December, 1899. In 1899 he was awarded a congres- 
sional medal of honor for gallantry in action, near Porac, Philip- 
pine Islands. December 5, 1899, was appointed Brigadier-Gen- 
eral of Volunteers. Commanded the Fourth Brigade, Second 
Division, Eighth Army Corps, and Third District, Department of 
Northern Luzon, to July, 1900. Was Provost Marshal-General 
of the City of Manila, Philippine Islands, to February, 1901. 
Appointed Brigadier-General, U. S. A., in February, 1901. Com- 
manded First District, Department of Northern Luzon, to No- 
vember, 1901, and the Third Brigade, Department of Southern

1903. Was Commandant of the Infantry and Cavalry School, 
Signal School and Staff College, to April, 1906. Became Ma- 
jor-General, U. S. A., on January 3, 1907. Received the degree 
of LL. D. from the State University of Kentucky, at Lexington, 
on June 6, 1907. From April, 1906, to April, 1910, was Chief 
of Staff and, next to the President, the virtual head of the United 
States Army. In the spring of 1910, by his own request, he 
was relieved from this responsible and very exacting position 
by President Taft, and since December, 1910, he had been as- 
signed to duty in the Philippines, over the military establish- 
ment of which he has supreme command. 

On January 5, 1881, General Bell was married to Sarah 
Buford, daughter of Thomas Jefferson and Grace (Bowers) 
Buford, of Rock Island, Illinois. Her sister, Anna Buford, is 
the wife of Brigadier-General Ernest A. Garlington of the 
regular army.

TO THE FLAG. 



From Address by Hon. Henry Watterson, Delivered on 

August 9, 1898, at Dedication of Monument Over 

the Grave of Francis Scott Key, Author 

OF "The Star-Spangled Banner/' in 

Frederick, Maryland. 



(Copyright, DufBeld & Company, and used here by permission of the 
author and the publisher.) 



"The Star-Spangled Banner ! Was ever flag so beautiful, did 
ever flag so fill the souls of men? The love of woman; the 
sense of duty; the thirst for glory; the heart-throbbing that im- 
pels the humblest American to stand by his colors fearless in 
the defense of his native soil and holding it sweei to die for it — 
the yearning which draws him to it when exiled from it — its 
free institutions and its blessed memories, all are embodied and 
symbolized by the broad stripes and bright stars of the nation's 
emblem, all live again in the lines and tones of Key's anthem. 
Two or three began the song, millions join the chorus. They 
are singing it in Porto Rican trenches and on the ramparts of 
Santiago, and its echoes, borne upon the wings of morning, come 
rolling back from far-away Manila; the soldiers' message to the 
soldier; the hero's shibboleth in battle; the patriot's solace in 
death ! Even to the lazy sons of peace who lag at home — the 
pleasure-seekers whose merry-making turns the night into day — 
those stirring strains come as a sudden trumpet-call, and, above 
the sounds of revelry, subjugated for the moment to a stronger 
power, rises wave upon wave of melodious resonance, the idler's 
aimless but heartfelt tribute to his country and his country's 
flag." 




"Thousands have died for it, millions defend it, 
Emblem of justice and mercy to all ! " 



GENERAL GEORGE ROGERS CLARK. 



Introduction by Hon. Henry Pirtle to Clark's Sketch of 
His Campaign in the Illinois, 1778-9. 

First Published at Cincinnati, Ohio, in 1869. 

All generations of American people will owe a debt, that can 
not be measured, to the memory of Colonel GEORGE ROGERS 
CLARK, and his brave officers and soldiers, for the results of 
the campaign the progress of which is so simply narrated in the 
ensuing pages. This is the original letter sent by Colonel — 
afterward General — Clark, to the illustrious revolutionary states- 
men, George Mason, of Virginia, his friend and patron. 

On the second of January, seventeen hundred and eighty- 
one, the Legislature of Virginia declared in certain resolutions 
passed that day, that "Colonel George Rogers Clark planned 
and executed the secret expedition by which the British posts 
between the Ohio and Mississippi rivers were reduced." In 
this undertaking he had not even the advice of General Washing- 
ton, or of any other officer, and was at the time only twenty- 
five years of age. But for this conquest made by Colonel Clark 
for the United States — and particularly for Virginia — in the 
midst of the terrible struggle with England, the boundary of 
our land, conquered in the revolution from Great Britain, would, 
in all probability, have been the eastern bank of the Ohio, or the 
Allegheny mountains, instead of the eastern shore of the Mis- 
sissippi. 

The whole country between the rivers, in no very definite 
expressions, had been transferred by France to England by the 
treaty of Paris, 1763, and possession rather indefinitely deliv- 
ered in 1765. The people of Illinois, in 1771, demanded a gov- 
ernment of their own- by the people, as free and bold as had 
been claimed as an English and American principle in New 
England and South Carolina; and in 1772 they sent through 
their agent in London, Daniel Blinn, their indignant protest 
to Lord Dartmouth, the British Secretary, against a new gov- 
ernment proposing to put them under the officers of the crown 

(111)

only. This government against which they protested, included 
Vincennes, which had then been settled more than seventy years. 
These facts are alluded to as showing the direct and sole posses- 
sion and acknowledged dominion of Great Britain at the time of 
our revolution. 

Yet Spain and France both contended in the preliminary 
negotiations at Paris in 1782, that this great land could not be 
ceded to the United States, that they had no legal claim to it. 
Dr. Franklin, in August, this year, when engaged in these nego- 
tiations at Paris, speaking of the claim of Spain to the western 
country, says: "My conjecture of that court's design to coop 
us up within the Allegheny mountains, is now manifest. I hope 
Congress will insist on the Mississippi as the boundary, and the 
free navigation of the river from which they would exclude us." 

The claim that Spain made was futile, and could not bear 
examination. She could not connect her claim to the lower 
Mississippi with this territory. The constructive possession 
could not reach up so far ; Clark had tuilt Fort Jefferson below 
the mouth of the Ohio, and Virginia had actual possession also 
between the rivers. This was the pretense of Spain; in the 
winter of 1781, a detachment of about sixty-five Spaniards, ac- 
companied by about the same number of Indians, took posses- 
sion of a small English Fort, called St. Joseph, situated near 
the source of the Illinois River. They hoisted the Spanish stand- 
ard, and pretended to take possession of the fort, and its de- 
pendencies, and of the river Illinois, in the name of the Spanish 
king. This was what the Spanish minister called a conquest; 
and he insisted that, if the country did not belong to the king 
of Spain, it did not belong to the Americans, but to the Indians. 

France could make no claim ; she could only dispute the claim 
of the colonies, or of the United States ; and even this she fore- 
bore to do through her principal minister the Count de Ver- 
gennes, but Rayneval, the principal secretary of the great min- 
ister, was put forward, to make this dispute. 

The negotiations at Paris in 1782, as far especially as Spain 
and France were concerned, were for the matters of compromises 
between these powers, respectively, and Great Britain; and they 
so ended as far as these three powers were concerned; and it 
did not matter to them how the Americans came out in these 
negotiations. The object in regard to the western country, was 



GENERAL GEORGE ROGERS CLARK. 113 

to keep it out of the hands of the United States, and then it 
could be set off to one or other of the three powers in considera- 
tion of something- else. England was then temporizing with 
Spain, as the issues of these conferences between England, 
Spain and France showed to every observer. How else could 
Spain have claimed anything in the face of Britain? But the 
English envoy could not pretend that it did not belong to the 
colonies that had set themselves up as the United States. The 
conquest had been fully made by Clark in 1778 and 1779; and 
in October, 1778, the county of Illinois was established by the 
General Assembly of Virginia, covering all the territory, and 
provision was made for its protection by reinforcements to the 
army of Clark ; and in May, 1780, the Act of October, 1778, was 
continued and amended, and other reinforcements ordered by 
Virginia. In fact, as an almost natural result from Clark's 
campaign, the land between the rivers was actually under the 
government de facto, as well as de jure, of this country, for it 
could not be denied that the patent of Virginia, with some por- 
tion to other colonies, covered the whole region, so that the 
arms of Clark had settled the question of possession, and civil, 
as well as military rule, of this great territory, which now holds 
so many millions of people. These prominent facts were be- 
fore the British minister, and before the world. He could not 
say, then, that this part of the land was in the power of Eng- 
land, any more than Virginia herself was after the battle of 
Yorktown ; and he was too accurate a jurist to yield to any claim 
of Spain, or to hear the objections of France. But what would 
have been the judgment of Great Britain, beset by France and 
Spain, and looking to its own aggradizement, as every country 
does, if this campaign had never been made? The force of con- 
quest, the moving etiquette of treaties of peace, would have been 
lost. 

But there are additional facts springing out of this conquest. 
The act of Congress of 1780 recommended to the several States 
to cede their out-lands, such as those west of the Ohio, to Con- 
gress, looking, of course, to what had been done by Clark. And 
the act of Virginia of October 20, 1783, about the transfer of 
these lands to Congress, recites the act of Congress of 1780 and 
the Virginia act of 1781, concerning these same lands. And 
Virginia, on 2d January, 1781, granted one hundred and fifty 



IW SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 

thousand acres to the officers and soldiers of Clark, and the same 
act reserved land for other officers and soldiers between the 
rivers Scioto and Little Miami. 

Now, the preliminary articles of peace and boundary had 
been under negotiation for months, and were signed by Oswald 
for England, and by Adams, Franklin, Jay and Laurens for 
America, on the 30th of November, 1782, when, of course, these 
things had been well understood; and afterward, on the 3d of 
September, 1783, the definite treaty of peace and boundary was 
signed at Paris by Hartley for England, and Adams, Franklin 
and Jay for the United States. Surely all that had followed the 
campaign of Colonel Clark, had been well debated and con- 
sidered, and but for our holding the country under military and 
civil rule, as much a part of the United States as any other 
portion of its territory, we would have had our boundary, not the 
east bank of the Mississippi, but the east bank of the Ohio, or 
the ridge of the Alleghenies. In contemplating the depth of 
our gratitude, let us think whether New Orleans and St. Louis 
and all the great country of Louisiana would, in any reasonable 
probability, have been purchased of the First Consul, and come 
to us through Mr. Jefferson but for this campaign of Clark. 
No, certainly not. This magnificent country, made of this and 
other purchases, now extending as one with us to the north 
Pacific, might to this hour have been broken from us at the 
mountain's summit or the river's shore. 



GOVERNOR ISAAC SHELBY. 



From Funeral Oration by Hon. William Taylor Barry "On the Death of 

Adams, Jefferson and Shelby," delivered in Lexington, Kentucky, 

on August IS, 1826. 



The numerous band of patriots devoted to the cause of In- 
dependence, exerted equally their best endeavors for its success, 
and the least of them are entitled to our eternal gratitude. As 
death fixes the seal of glory on their lives, history will assign 
to each their rank. Whether civil or military services merit the 
highest praise, will not be a question; each should be rewarded 
in proportion to their degree, and the motive with which they 
were rendered. All made up their minds to risk their fortunes, 
characters, and lives, in a revolution, evincing by this bold de- 
termination, courage sufficient to sustain the patriot in the toils 
of the field, or the labours of the cabinet. Without giving pre- 
eminence to the soldier or to the statesman, it must be conceded, 
that the union of capacity for both employments, is the perfection 
of character. Many great examples of this are to be found in 
both ancient and modern history; but none that we read of 
united them so perfectly as George Washington : and to him not 
only our own country, but the world, assigns the first rank — 
justice to his memory and our own fame — requires this rank to 
be maintained in all its dignity. The great men we this day 
commemorate follow after the Father of his Country. To the 
historian it belongs to relate in full their early and later achieve- 
ments, and the particulars of their public and private lives ; and 
it will be for impartial posterity to give them their place in 
the scale of excellence. The limits of this occasion will only 
allow a sketch of the conspicuous acts and prominent traits, that 
may serve to illustrate their characters. Adams and Jefferson 
and Shelby are no more! Their spirits have fled, and their 
bodies are mingled with the clods of the valley ; but that which 
gained our love and raised our admiration, still subsists. Their 

(115)

services and noble achievements, liberty, independence, and 
glory, remain! 

Amidst the general mourning that covers the land, Kentucky 
has particular cause of sorrow. Although admonished by recent 
afBiction, and the infirmities of age, that the death of ISAAC 
SHELBY was near at hand, yet the news falls heavily on us. 
All hearts are sorrowful; and the State is like a family of little 
ones, weeping over the shrouded remains of a beloved father ! 
He was indeed a father to Kentucky — his services are inter- 
woven with the history and his fame blended with the glory of 
the State. It is a high but just compliment, to say of Shelby, 
that he was formed on the model of Washington — uniting what 
is rarely to be met with in the same individual, qualifications for 
exalted civil and military offices. Whether we regard his serv- 
ices in the cabinet or in the field, we shall see much to admire and 
applaud. In 1779, he was a member of the Virginia Legisla- 
ture, and in the fall of that year was appointed by Mr. Jeffer- 
son, then governor of the State, Major of the escort of guards 
for running the boundary line between Virginia and North Caro- 
lina. The extension of that line threw Shelby into the State of 
North Carolina. As soon as he became a citizen of that State, 
he was appointed by Governor Caswell, Colonel of Sullivan 
County. In 1782, he was a member of the Legislature of North 
Carolina; and appointed the same year a Commissioner to settle 
preemption claims on the Cumberland River, and to allot 
bounty lands to the officers and soldiers of the North Caro- 
lina State line. He was, after aiding as a member of the Con- 
vention in forming the Constitution, elected the first Governor 
of the State of Kentucky, in 1792; and was again called to the 
same high station in 1812. What higher evidence of merit for 
civil office, could he adduced, than these proud testimonials? 
In Virginia and North Carolina, we see him associated in the 
struggles of the American Revolution, and called to counsel 
with the great patriots that adorn the annals of those States. 
When Kentucky became an independent State, he is placed in 
the Executive Chair, to organize the government, and discharge 
the delicate and important duties confided to him, to the entire 
satisfaction of the people. By filling the various public offices 
with the intelligence and virtue of the country, the State be- 



GOVERNOR ISAAC SHELBY. 117 

came at once respectable and received an impulse, that has 
carried her on rapidly in the career of improvement. 

The circumstances under which he was again elected Gover- 
nor, are the highest proofs of public confidence. It was after 
the late war had been declared. The venerable Charles Scott, 
at the expiration of his term, had retired from office ; the coun- 
try looked around for one worthy of succeeding that distin- 
guished patriot; all eyes were turned to the Hero of King's 
Mountain. The people, confiding in his integrity, courage, ex- 
perience, and known patriotism, selected him, unsolicited on his 
part, as best qualified to call forth and give direction to the 
energies of the country. The public expectation was more than 
fulfilled. The ability and fidelity with which he discharged the 
duties of Chief Magistrate, his incorruptible integrity, his un- 
wavering attachment to public economy, and to the principles of 
civil liberty, give him an elevated place amongst American 
statesmen, and entitle him to our warmest gratitude. But we have 
yet to contemplate him in scenes of more brilliant achievements. 
Shelby was happily constituted for military life In person and 
in mind. His appearance was noble and engaging. Accustomed 
in early life to the use of arms, and the pursuit of game, the 
mountain air and exercise in the open country improved his con- 
stitution and enabled him to bear the greatest fatigue; of a bold 
and manly turn of thinking, he disdained a voluptuous life of 
indolence and folly, and resolved to season himself for grand 
exploits in the rough school of toil and privation. The vigour 
of his mind, and the military spirit with which it was imbued, 
was displayed at an early age. When yet a stripling, like David, 
he encountered the enemies of his country. In 1774, acting as 
Lieutenant of a volunteer company, he was in the memorable 
battle of the 10th October, 1774, at the mouth of Kenhawa, 
fought by a detachment under General Andrew Lewis, against 
the combined Indian forces. In this terrible conflict, which 
lasted from day-light until dark, our young hero bore himself 
as an officer with spirit and gallantry. His good conduct on 
that occasion attracted the attention of Governor Dunmore, who 
rewarded his heroism with the appointment of second in com- 
mand of a garrison established on the spot, where he remained 
until some time in 1775, when the garrison was discharged. 
The American Revolution followed soon after, and opened to 



118 SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 

him a scene where his talents were fully displayed. In July, 
1776, he was appointed Captain of a minute company, by the 
committee of safety in Virginia. In 1777 and 1778, he was 
commissary to the frontier garrisons; active and indefatigable 
in his duties, he often furnished supplies upon his own credit, 
when that of the public failed. Such was his good conduct in 
this station, that Patrick Henry, then Governor of Virginia, 
thanked him in person for the important services he had ren- 
dered his country. In North Carohna he was soon engaged in 
the most important services. At the summons of General Charles 
McDowell in 1780, he repaired to the camp at Cherokee Ford 
on Broad River, with three hundred mounted volunteers. He 
was immediately dispatched with Colonel Clarke, at the head 
of six hundred mounted men, to watch the movements and beat 
up the outposts of the enemy. Ferguson, an active partisan officer 
in the Royal militia, at the head of two thousand five hundred 
men, made various efiforts to surprise Colonel Shelby, but his 
designs were all baffled. On the first of August, at Cedar Spring, 
they met Ferguson's advance of seven hundred men; a severe 
engagement of half an hour ensued, when Ferguson came up 
with his whole force, but not until the Americans had gained a 
decisive advantage, capturing fifty prisoners, and by a judicious 
retreat bearing them off to their own camp, in the face of the 
enemy. Colonel Shelby was again detached with Clarke and 
Williams, at the head of seven hundred horsemen, to surprise 
an encampment of an equal number of tories at Musgrove's Mill, 
on the south side of the Enoree River, about forty miles dis- 
tant; Ferguson's army lay exactly between. They marched on 
the evening of the 18th of August, 1780, avoiding Ferguson's 
encampment, and at the dawn of day, about half a mile from 
Musgrove's Mill, had a short skirmish with a patrol party of the 
enemy, in which several of them were killed. At this juncture, 
they were apprized by a countryman of a reinforcement of the 
garrison the evening before, by six hundred regular troops from 
New York, commanded by Colonel Innis. But a moment was 
left for counsel — it was imprudent to bring on the attack; the 
men were harrassed and worn down with fatigue, and could not 
escape. It was resolved to give them battle. The drums and 
bugle horns of the enemy already announced their movement — 
a breastwork of brush and logs was quickly thrown across the 



GOVERNOR ISAAC SHELBY 119 

road; Captain Georman was sent in front with twenty-five men 
to commence a skirmish; the stratagem succeeded; the enemy 
were drawn on in disorder to the breastwork, and in less than 
one hour Colonel Innis, with all the British officers except a 
single subaltern, were either killed or wounded, two hundred 
prisoners taken, the enemy defeated and driven across the river 
with great slaughter. After this signal victory, the Americans 
intended to have surprised the British post at Ninety-Six, but 
the news of Gates' defeat, involving the destruction of the main 
army, made a retreat necessary. This was a difficult task, in- 
cumbered as they were, with prisoners and wounded men; but 
it was accomplished by a rapid movement continued for thirty- 
six hours without food or rest, before the superior numbers of 
an angry and vigilant foe. 

It was soon after this, that the expedition agamst Ferguson 
was planned. This officer, thinking himself secure, had per- 
mitted some of the tories to go home. By forced marches the 
Americans, with nine hundred and ten men, attacked Ferguson at 
King's Mountain, and killed and took eleven hundred and five. 
The influence of this victory was immense. It disheartened the 
tories, animated the spirits of our own countrymen, that had 
been depressed by reverses and disasters at other points. The 
part that Colonel Shelby took in this achievement, sharing the 
glory of the victory with Colonel Campbell, Sevier, and other 
brave co-patriots, is now a matter of history. The merit of 
the action is enhanced by the reflection, that the conquerors 
at King's Mountain were volunteers, and the expedition under- 
taken and carried on, without any aid from government. The 
Legislatures of North Carolina and Virginia, aware of the im- 
portance of the service, did justice to the gallant commanders, 
by appropriate resolutions voting them swords as emblems of 
their good conduct and bravery. After the affair at King's 
Mountain, Colonel Shelby continued to render important serv- 
ice in the South, under General Marion, one of the most in- 
trepid partizan leaders of the revolutionary war. 

At the close of the war, he retired to private life, and en- 
gaged in the pursuits of agriculture. He proved to be one of 
the best practical farmers in our country — by industry and judi- 
cious management his fortune was rapidly augmented. He was 
content to repose on the laurels he had won in the war of in- 



120 SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 

dependence. His talents, his services and high reputation, gave 
him just claims to preferment. The people, too, eagerly solicited 
his services ; but he could never be induced to enter upon public 
life, unless the exigencies of his country rendered his services 
indispensable. He would not permit his name to be placed on 
the list of candidates for the office of Vice-President, although 
warmly solicited from various parts of the Union; and declined 
the office of Secretary of War, that was subsequently tendered 
him by President Monroe. Like Cincinnatus, he remained un- 
ambitious at his farm, enforcing, by his example, the duties of 
private life; teaching industry, temperance, and economy; ex- 
tending acts of benevolence and humanity to his countrymen, 
and setting an example to affectionate husbands, kind parents, 
and humane masters. 

Colonel Shelby was at his residence in Lincoln County, en- 
joying in affluence, the sweets of domestic Hfe, when he was 
again called upon to assume the helm of State. At the ad- 
vanced age of 63, had he wanted an apology, this was an ample 
one; but his mind was characterized by constancy and invin- 
cible firmness. He saw his beloved country, for whose inde- 
pendence he had fought in his youth, again in imminent danger, 
assailed by the same inveterate foe. The fire of patriotism re- 
kindled in his bosom, he did not hesitate, but abandoning the 
allurements of ease, and listening only to the voice of honor, we 
see him again with youthful ardour, entering upon the execu- 
tive duties, boldly hazarding his reputation in the contingencies 
of a war, the glorious results of which were yet in the womb 
of time. The volunteers from Kentucky, who had gone forth 
to battle, notwithstanding the bravery and good conduct of 
their officers, had met with sad reverses. The dreadful defeats 
at the River Raisin, and the Rapids of the Miami, had deprived 
our State of many gallant and patriotic citizens, and filled the 
country with mourning ; the cruelties practiced by the savage allies 
of England, and countenanced by the British officers, was the 
cause of deep and powerful excitement; the public indignation 
was aroused and our militia, anxious to revenge their slaughtered 
countrymen, were impatient to be led to battle. Shelby thought 
the time had arrived to put an end to the contest in that quarter, 
and resolved to take the field in person. As he was preparing 
for the campaign, a happy incident occurred. The delivery of 



GOVERNOR ISAAC SHELBY 121 

the sword voted him by the Legislature of North Carolina in 
1781, had, from some cause, been delayed, and was handed to 
him just in time to be used in acquiring fresh laurels. Proud 
emblem of victory — glorious remembrancer of the gallantry and 
heroism of two wars! At a short notice, four thousand volun- 
teers rallied around Governor Shelby, and, by a rapid movement, 
in a few days joined General Harrison's army, just in time to 
profit by the splendid victory of the immortal Perry, which had 
opened the way for the transportation of the American army 
into Canada. The promptness with which this was effected, the 
rapid pursuit of the enemy, the successful result of the battle 
on the Thames, in the total defeat of the combined Indian forces 
and capture of Proctor's army, are already recorded in the his- 
tory of the late war. Congress have expressed their high es- 
timate of the important services of Shelby in this campaign, and 
conferred on him, by unanimous vote, the honours due to fortu-> 
nate and victorious commanders. It was an animating example 
to the young soldier, to see this aged veteran leading on his 
troops, engaged ardently in the toils of war, and cheerfully sub- 
with admiration the plain republican Governor, who could thus 
mitting to its numerous privations. The British officers regarded 
suddenly lead his countrymen to battle and to victory. And the 
citizens of Ohio crowded the road to gaze on the Hero of two 
wars, as he returned in triumph to his own State. 

One or two incidents illustrative of his character, that have 
not found a place in general history, deserve to be mentioned. 
In the action on the Thames, Coloned Johnson's regiment were 
sustaining the brunt of the battle. That gallant corps, whose 
sorrows now bleed afresh on account of the recent death of one of 
their beloved commanders, was suffering severely under the gal- 
ling fire of the Indians. Shelby saw and felt for them. In strong 
emotion he said, "Those brave men will be cut to pieces !" Eager 
to succour them, and fearing that the reinforcement ordered by the 
vigilant commander-in-chief, would not be up in time, he led in 
person a regiment to their relief, advancing fearlessly and with 
youthful ardour, to the point where the battle raged. On the 
march homeward, the greatest number of the troops were com- 
pelled to traverse the margin of the lake, exposed to hardships and 
privations. Transportation was only furnished for a few. Shelby 
declined the easy berth offered him in one of the vessels, and 



122 SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 

remained with those of his men who expected to encounter dif- 
ficulties. He had another object in view. The land route passed 
over the fatal plains of Raisin. Vengeance had been taken on 
the cruel foe; the spirits of our slaughtered countrymen were 
appeased, but their bones lay bleaching on the ground. It was 
reserved for Shelby to give then Christian burial. Touching 
spectacle! A victorious army, halted to perform this solemn 
ceremony, are seen with their venerable commander, placing the 
cypress by the laurels, and bedewing the grave of heroes with 
the soldier's tears ! 

At the expiration of his term of office. Governor Shelby 
retired to his farm. The citizens of Frankfort and its vicinity, 
with whom he had mingled and interchanged the civilities of 
social life, gave him repeated evidences of affectionate regard. 
At the moment of his departure from the seat of Government, 
a compliment was paid him, that awakened recollections of the 
interesting events of the late war and that of the revolution. 
A national salute was fired with the memorable cannon that was 
taken from the British at Saratoga, surrendered to them at De- 
troit, recaptured on the Thames, and presented by the United 
States to Governor Shelby. 

He was as magnanimous as he was brave. Although con- 
scious of meriting, by his services in the late war, the honours 
his country were anxious to bestow upon him, yet he was un- 
willing to receive them at the expense of another, and they 
were delayed, with his assent, until justice was done the brave 
commander of the Northwestern Army, under whom he had 
served. 

Another trait in Shelby's character remains to be noticed, 
which crowns the whole — his reverence for religion. This was 
displayed in all his conduct, public and private. He respected 
the Sabbath, and invariably attended preaching. At the time of 
his death, he was building, near his residence on his own land, 
a house for public worship. A splendid example of piety, to 
heroes and statesmen. 

He lived until the Fiftieth Anniversary had passed, and wit- 
nessed the rejoicings on the Nation's Jubilee. Although in deli- 
cate health, his dissolution was sudden. He had contemplated 
the approach of death with calmness ; selected a place on his own 
farm for his grave, the spot on which he had fifty years before 



GOVERNOR ISAAC SHELBY. 123 

pitched his tent. He had often expressed the wish, that when he 
died no person might be present but his wife. In this he was 
gratified. Shortly before he expired, he had walked out, returned, 
took his seat, and was conversing cheerfully with the partner of 
his bosom; the conversation closed for a moment; a long breath 
was heard, his wife turned to look, he was gone, without a 
struggle, or the distortion of a muscle of his face. Such was the 
closing scene of ISAAC SHELBY, distinguished, in his early 
youth and in old age, for his energy, zeal, and magnanimous exer- 
tions for his country. At this solemn and affecting moment, 
when we are assembled to pay the last tribute of respect, let us 
be attentive to the precious and instructive lessons furnished by 
his life, and stimulated by the bright example, emulate his noble 
deeds. 




SHELBY MEDALLION AND KENTUCKY STATE SEAL. 



124 SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 



GENERAL CHARLES SCOTT. 



Address upon His Life and Character, by Colonel Thomas Leonidas 

Crittenden, delivered in Frankfort, Kentucky, 

on November 8, 1854. 



The State of Kentucky, by an act of the last Legislature, ap- 
propriated funds to defray the expense of bringing to her cap- 
ital the remains of three of her distinguished sons, that they 
might be buried with honors suited to their merits, and becom- 
ing the dignity of a great and grateful State. Governor Powell, 
to whom was intrusted the direction and management of this 
ceremony, with too high an estimate of my capacity, has assigned 
me the honor of making such an oration over the remains of 
General Scott as is customary on these occasions. Many things 
warn me that my oration must be brief ; and yet I have to sketch 
the life of a man who served his country with honor and renown, 
both in the tented field and in the council chamber, for more 
than half a century. I must recall to you some of those inci- 
dents in his eventful public career which won for him the con- 
fidence and esteem of his contemporaries, and this high honor 
from posterity. In this way, to my thinking, I shall best dis- 
charge my duty. For good deeds and great deeds outpraise all 
eulogists. 

It is a full century since General Scott began his public and 
patriotic services. One hundred years ago and these poor re- 
mains were clothed with the manly frame of Corporal Charles 
Scott, and the soldier's heart that ever dwelt in his bosom was 
stirred by the clang of arms and the terrible battle cry! He 
was born about 1733 in Virginia in that part of Goochland 
County afterwards, in 1748, set apart to form Cumberland County, 
and in 1755, side by side with Washington, he fought in that 
disastrous battle which resulted in the defeat of General Brad- 
dock. From this period till the Revolution, I have not been able 
to trace his conduct in life. But when that great struggle began, 
he took at once, and manfully, as he did every thing, the side 
of justice and of freedom. He raised the first company of volun- 
teers south of James River that ever entered into actual service. 
He so distinguished himself that a county seat in Virginia was 
named for him as early as 1777. Soon after this — to put the

126 SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 

at the battle of the Fallen Timber, where the most efifective and 
brilliant victory was gained on August 20th of that year. And 
here, I believe, after almost forty years of warfare, the peaceful 
life of General Scott may be said to begin. He was no scholar. 
His school-boy days were stirring, busy, dangerous times. Edu- 
cation was a costly thing, and difficult to be had at any price 
where he lived ; and besides, long ere he was a man in years, the 
camp was his only schoolhouse, and the rough trials of life his 
only teachers. The first elements of an education were all that 
he acquired at school. But to a man of his stamp and mind, 
every incident in life is a lesson, every opportunity a teacher, 
and every day brings some wisdom. For there was about him 
a natural judgment which made him take a right view of things, 
and shaped always his general course aright. 

He thought but little of himself. No intrigue, no art was 
ever used by him to exalt himself in the public estimation. He 
felt the impulse, and he played his part. It was his noble nature 
to love his friends, but above all to love his country. In 1808, 
when most of his life was spent — after arduous services and long 
years had wasted the vigor and strength of his manly form, 
while his patriotism and his virtues had but been hardened by 
exposure — with his intellect still unimpaired, he stood before 
the highest earthly tribunal. And then the people of Kentucky 
pronounced him their chief man. The people looked back over 
his long and well spent life — for all could mark his course, deeds 
having written his name on many pages of his country's history — 
and finding no blot or stain upon his fame, they could not with- 
hold their suffrages. No eloquence nor flattering tongue be- 
sought their support. The old soldier, with modesty unfeigned 
and real as his merit, thought the office of- Governor too high a 
place for his ability, and too great a reward for his services. 
In the honesty of his soul he bluntly told the people, in the brief 
speeches he made to them, that his competitor was far better 
qualified for the distinguished position than he was himself, but 
that if they would be foolish enough to elect him, he would do 
his best for them. He was almost unanimously elected; and 
the same singleness of purpose, the same fidelity and devotion 
to his country, which had marked his military conduct, character- 
ized and distinguished his administration. He was the Gover- 
nor of this State when war was declared in 1812, and one of 
his last official acts as Governor was to commission General Har- 



GENERAL CHARLES SCOTT. 127 

rison as Major-General, and so to give him the command of the 
Kentucky troops. 

Before the actual declaration of war, when our people were 
suffering great abuse and outrage at the hands both of England 
and France, but especially of England, his messages teem with 
the most glowing and courageous patriotism. In 1810, in his 
message to the Legislature, he says: "As we have but Httle to 
hope from the justice of either of the belligerent powers. Great 
Britain or France, we should most earnestly prepare ourselves 
to have as little to fear from their anger. Prepared to do that 
justice which we ask, we should be prepared to enforce those 
rights which we claim." In 1809, he says in another message: 
"Our arms purchased our liberties, and by our arms must they 
be defended. It is the order of nature and of fate." He de- 
plores with a patriot's earnestness that blindness and fury of 
party spirit which would accomplish its own purposes and ends, 
forgetting in the ardor of political strife the only object for 
which politicians and parties should seek, the true interest of 
the country. And it was also his sentiment, his real sentiment, 
for it always governed his conduct, that at the sacred call of duty 
all dangers dwindled into shadows. These were some of the 
incidents in this man's life, and these, and such as these, were 
the generous and noble sentiments which animated his heart. He 
died at a very advanced age on October 22, 1813. 

Let us remember that General Scott was a chief, even amongst 
the wondrous men of the Revolution — and that these men pur- 
chased all our blessings by the hardships they endured, by the 
bravery with which they encountered every danger, and by the 
blood which they spilt in our great cause. No living man can 
rightly claim so much gratitude from his countrymen, on the 
score of hard and perilous services rendered. He was a man 
to be remembered. The pens of Tacitus and Livy have made 
immortal the names of many Romans for a tithe of his achieve- 
ments. We can not command historians like these. Alexander 
himself, with the world at his feet, envied the fortunes of 
Achilles in having Homer for his poet. And yet these distin- 
guished dead whose funeral rites we celebrate to-day, could ask 
no other history of their lives than that which Kentucky wrote 
when she decreed these honors to their memory. Could General 
Scott have foreseen this day, his brave old heart would have 
leapt with joy. Dangers have dwindled until not a shadow even

is left. The exciting questions which roused every patriot heart, 
the zealous and ardent support of friends, the angry and active 
resistance of opponents, are gone and almost forgotten. How 
would it rejoice the heart of such a man to see the State whose 
perils were his own for so many years, reposing in that security 
he did so much to win for her! What joy to see his loved 
country, in her pride and power, remembering with grateful 
heart his services — honoring, as she does here, his memory, and 
engraving with her mighty hand his name and fame upon a 
page of her own history — declaring to all the world this was my 
son, my brave, true-hearted son; let all my children cherish his 
memory; let their deeds be like his! And this, in truth, Ken- 
tucky says to-day. 

Since the world began, no people have ever risen to power 
or splendor who have not cherished and striven to perpetuate 
the memory of their great men. The Jews, God's peculiar people, 
carried with them the bones of their benefactor, Joseph, in their 
pilgrimage through the wilderness. And David invokes a bless- 
ing upon the men who rescued and buried the remams of the 
mighty King Saul. The Egyptian monuments to their mighty 
dead, with hieroglyphic inscriptions which may yet be deciphered, 
and reveal great names and mysteries to the world, are every- 
wliere renowed. These were great people — and their examples 
are worthy to be noted — to the one the world is indebted for 
the Bible, to the other for the Alphabet. Funeral ceremonies 
have differed among different nations; but no nation, whether 
barbarous or civilized, has neglected some mark of respect for 
the dead, or of honor for the distinguished dead. The Greeks, 
of Athens, whose art and literature twenty centuries have not 
paralleled, gathered her chief men, and her soldiers, too, from 
the fields where they fell in her defense, and buried them with 
public funerals of great pomp. Nor while they continued to be- 
stow honors only on true merit, did they ever want a soldier or 
a sage. And Rome — whose institutions were devised to incul- 
cate chiefly the military virtues — to what a pitch of grandeur 
and power she attained by the honors she showered upon these 
virtues! Her founder she deified. Her victorious generals led 
chained Kings behind their cars as they drove in triumph through 
her streets. But when in her degeneracy she bestowed honors 
upon slaves, upon courtiers and servile flatterers, there came 
then a race of people, barbarians though they were, who still 



GENERAL CHARLES SCOTT. 129 

honored manhood, and they trod upon the neck of this once 
proud mistress of the world. And when Alaric died, the leader 
by whose skill and bravery these barbarians had trampled upon 
Rome, though no marble monument, with high-sounding in- 
scription, marks his grave, yet in their rude way they honored 
him with a funeral ceremony whose memory will outlast the 
Pyramids. They made the captives he had taken in war turn 
from its course a river, and in the river's bed they laid their 
leader, and with him the spoils of nations; then turning back 
the river to its channel, with barbarous hands they slew these 
captives, that no enemy might know the last resting place of 
their chieftain, nor foot of foe or stranger tread o'er his head 
when they were gone. It was their tribute to the only virtue 
they esteemed — manhood. And thus, too, was Attilla buried by 
his furious Huns. It was the custom of the Scythians to em- 
balm their great dead, and carry them into every province of 
their dominion, that the very features and appearance of a mighty 
man should be fastened on the recollection of his country. These 
honors, so freely given by the barbarians to what they esteemed 
good and great, inspired, perhaps, the ambition of Attilla, who, 
from his rude palace in Hungary, ruled to the farthest con- 
fines of modern Russia, and exacted tribute from the degenerate 
Emperors of Rome and Constantinople. The French, too, al- 
ways devoted to glory, have done especial honor to the memory 
of their great soldiers — and they have had their Bonaparte. 
Titles, and palaces, and monuments are freely given by Eng- 
land to her mighty men — and she has had her Wellington. Our 
forefathers honored freedom most, and gave highest tribute from 
their hearts to those who were greatest in her cause — and we 
have had our Washington. 

Let Kentucky make this Cemetery her Temple of Honor, 
though she worships only God, and let her see that none approach 
its pure shrine but by the way of Virtue, and she will never want 
for heroes in the day of battle, nor statesmen in the council 
chamber. And then our free institutions, which the old soldier 
now about to be interred endured so much to establish and 
maintain, shall extend their blessings to a thousand generations. 
Our posterity shall gather here, as we have done to-day, hun- 
dreds of years hence, to pay the last tribute to some mighty one, 
when every turf beneath their feet shall be a great man's sep- 
ulchre.

No seers were they, but simple men; 

Its vast results the future hid; 

The meaning of the work they did 
Was strange and dark and doubtful then. 

Swift as the summons came they left 

The plough, mid-furrow, standing still. 
The half-ground corn-grist in the mill. 

The spade in earth, the axe in cleft.

They scarcely asked the reason why:

COLONEL ROBERT PATTERSON. 



By Charlotte Reeve Conover. 

Author of " Concerning the Forefathers.' 



Robert Patterson, pioneer, soldier, citizen, the son of Francis 
Patterson, of Bedford County, Pennsylvania, was born on March 
23, 1753, in a cabin on the Military road, which traversing- the 
western area of the State, passed under the shadow of Big Cove 
Mountain. At seventeen he enlisted with the Lancaster Mounted 
Rifles; afterward, in 1774, he joined the Pennsylvania rangers 
for a six months scouting service. They penetrated to the Scioto 
Valley. There was desultory fighting and Robert had his horse 
shot from under him and aided in the capture of a Mingo Chief. 
At Pickaway Plains he met with noted hunters from Kentucky: 
Boone, Kenton, Harrod and Logan, whose description of the 
vast and fertile lands south of the Ohio filled the young adven- 
turer with desire to go there. Upon his return to his father's 
home, the enterprise was decided upon. Francis Patterson pre- 
sented his son with a complete hunting outfit and a horse and sent 
him on his way, with the understanding that Robert was to pre- 
empt land for his father as well as himself in the Kentucky 
wilderness. At Fort Pitt he joined a party which was being 
made up to go down the Ohio River. They landed, after a 
two weeks voyage, at Salt Lick and proceeded by marches to 
Royal Spring (Georgetown) where he spent the winter with 
the McClellands. In November, 1775, Patterson and a hunter 
named Sterrett wandered many miles from the fort into new 
territory to the South and on the 9th of the month camped on the 
banks of Cane Run. The next day they came to a fine spring 
which so charmed the young hunter that he built a rough shack, 
marked R. P. on a number of trees and F. P. on others, thus 
laying claim to the land in that vicinity in his own and his 
father's rights. In April, 1776, he returned to his claim and 
erected a stouter cabin, which, however, he did not occupy at 
the time. He came and went from Harrod's and McClelland's 

(131) 



132 SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 

to his claim, clearing the land and raising crops to establish his 
certain right. 

In October, 1776, he and five other young men made a journey 
by canoe up the Ohio to Fort Pitt in search of ammunition for 
the forts. This expedition was attacked by the Indians, two 
of the hunters killed and Robert Patterson wounded with a 
tomahawk in the side. After terrible suffering and privations, 
he was rescued by a party and taken to Fort Pitt to recover. 
From there he went to his father's home and induced his brother 
William to go to Kentucky, find his claim and work it. After 
his return to Kentucky, Robert joined the fighting force of the 
District, was engaged in ten battles all told, and was wounded 
ten times. He was in command under Colonel Bowman in the 
expeditions up the Mad River Valley, and was wounded at the 
battle of the Blue Licks and barely escaped with his life. In 
1778, George Rogers Clark planned the celebrated Illinois Cam- 
paign, and sent for Robert Patterson to join him. He (Patter- 
son) was put in command over seventeen rangers whose duty 
it was to scout the country, ahead of the main force, and re- 
port conditions to the commander. From information thus ob- 
tained the attack and capture, first of Kaskaskia, tihen of Cahokia, 
were successful. In return for his prowess, the government of 
Virginia granted a tract of land to Patterson and instructed 
him to erect a fort somewhere in the center of Kentucky. The 
site of his own home seemed the most natural place. There- 
fore, with fourteen men, he proceeded to raise a log block house 
and to name it Lexington. This was in March-April, 1779. 

In 1780, Robert Patterson - again returned to Pennsylvania, 
married Elizabeth Lindsay, of Falling Springs, and brought her 
home with him to the Lexington Fort. When the Indian troubles 
were over, he built a stone house (still standing), and six 
children were born there. 

In 1804, Robert Patterson lost much property by going se- 
curity for a friend and he felt that a change would benefit them 
all. He had united with three men and purchased a large tract 
of land which afterwards became Cincinnati. But the Valley 
of the Miami held greater attractions for him and to Da3^on he 
therefore went and made it his permanent home. He died in 
1827 and is buried in a lot overlooking the city.

Robert Patterson's services to the cities of Lexington and 
Dayton were many. He was valiant in ridding the country of 
the savages and making it a safe place to live. He was always 
in the post of the greatest danger; commanding the advance 
in the march on Kaskaskia, protecting the retreat after Gen- 
eral St. Clair's defeat. In times of peace he was interested in 
churches and schools, vineyards, good roads, stockraising and 
bridge building. He was one of the first to bring a school-mas- 
ter to the hamlet of Lexington and to aid in the purchase of the 
first library. 

In Dayton he was prominent in all public enterprises, was 
made Quartermaster in the War of 1812, helped found the First 
Presbyterian Church, built mills, promoted the canal and in 
every way devoted himself to works of public benefit. 

His descendants are among the Goodlets and Steeles, of Ken- 
tucky; the Browns, Irvins, Andersons, Evans and Nisbets of 
Ohio. 

Robert Patterson was one of the masters of the early times 
and his memory should be kept green in the two cities whose 
foundations he laid and whose fortunes he did so much to foster.

MINUTE MAN STATUE. 



WASHINGTON. 



By Lord Brougham. 



How grateful the relief which the friend of mankind, the 
lover of virtue, experiences when his eye rests upon the greatest 
man of our own or of any age — the only one upon whom an 
epithet so thoughtlessly lavished by men, to foster the crimes of 
their worst enemies, may be innocently and justly bestowed! 
With none of that brilliant genius which dazzles ordinary minds ; 
with not even any remarkable quickness of apprehension ; this 
eminent person is presented to our observation clothed in at- 
tributes as modest, as unpretending, as little calculated to strike 
or to astonish, as if he had passed unknown through some se- 
cluded region of private life. But he had a judgment sure and 
sound; a steadiness of mind which never suffered any passion, 
or even feeling to ruffle its calm; a strength of understanding 
which worked rather than forced its way through all obstacles — 
removing or avoiding rather than overleaping them. If pro- 
found sagacity, unshaken steadiness of purpose, the entire sub- 
jugation of all the passions which carry havoc through ordinary 
minds, and oftentimes lay waste the fairest prospects of great- 
ness — nay, the discipline of those feelings which are wont to 
lull or to seduce genius, and to mar and to cloud over the aspect 
of virtue herself — joined with, or rather leading to, the most 
absolute self-denial, the most habitual and exclusive devotion to 
principle — if these things can constitute a great character, with- 
out either quickness of apprehension, or resources of information, 
or inventive powers, or any brilliant quality that might dazzle 
the vulgar — then surely Washington was the greatest man that 
ever lived in this world uninspired by Divine wisdom, and un- 
sustained by supernatural virtue. 

Nor could the human fancy create a combination of quali- 
ties even to the very wants and defects of the subject, more 
perfectly fitted for the scenes in which it was his lot to bear the 
chief part, whether we regard the war which he conducted, the 

(135) 



136 SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 

political constitution over which he afterwards presided, or the 
tempestuous times through which he had finally to guide the 
bark himself had launched. Averse as his pure mind and temp- 
erate disposition naturally were from the atrocities of the French 
Revolution, he yet never leant against the cause of liberty, but 
clung to it even when degraded by the excesses of its savage 
votaries. Towards France, while he reprobated her aggressions 
upon other States, and bravely resisted her pretensions to con- 
trol his own, he yet never ceased to feel the gratitude which 
her aid to the American cause had planted eternally in every 
American bosom; and for the freedom of a nation which had 
followed the noble example of his countrymen In breaking the 
chains of a thousand years, he united with those countrymen 
in cherishing a natural sympathy and regard. In truth, his de- 
votion to liberty, and his intimate persuasion that it can only be 
enjoyed under the republican scheme, constantly gained strength 
to the end of his truly glorious life; and his steady resolution to 
hold the balance even between contending extremes at home, 
as well as to repel any advance from abroad incompatible with 
perfect independence, was not more dictated by the natural jus- 
tice of his disposition, and the habitual sobriety of his views, 
than it sprang from a profound conviction that a Commonwealth 
is most effectually served by the commanding prudence which 
checks all excesses, and guarantees it against the peril that chiefly 
besets popular governments. 

His courage, whether in battle or in council, was as perfect 
as might be expected from this pure and steady temper of soul. 
A perfectly just man, with a thoroughly firm resolution never 
to be misled by others, any more than to be by others overawed ; 
never to be seduced or betrayed, or hurried away by his own 
weaknesses or self-delusions, any more than by other men's arts, 
nor ever to be disheartened by the most complicated difficulties, 
any more than to be spoilt on the giddy heights of fortune — 
such was this great man — great, pre-eminently great, whether 
we regard him sustaining alone the whole weight of campaigns 
all but desperate, or gloriously terminating a just warfare by 
his resources and his courage — ^presiding over the jarring ele- 
ments of his political council, alike deaf to the storms of all 
extremes — or directing the formation of a new government for 
a great people, the first time that so vast an experiment had ever

^een tried by man— or finally retiring from the supreme power 
o which his virtue had raised him over the nation he had created, 
and whose destinies he had guided as long as his aid was re- 
^"""*;|^~"''*'^i"ng with the veneration of all parties, of all nations, 
"mankind, in order that the rights of men might be con- 
served, and that his example never might be appealed to by vul- 
gar tyrants. This is the consummate glory of Washington; a 
triumphant warrior where the most sanguine had a right to de- 
spair ; a successful ruler in all the difficulties of a course wholly 
untried; but a warrior whose sword only left its sheath when 
the first law of our nature commanded it to be drawn; and a 
ruler who, having tasted of supreme power, gently and unosten- 
taitiously desired that the cup might pass from him, nor would 
suffer more to wet his lips than the most solemn and sacred 
duty to his Country and his God required ! 

To his latest breath did this great patriot maintain the noble 
character of a Captain, the patron of Peace, and a Statesman, the 
friend of Justice. Dying, he bequeathed to his heirs the sword 
which he had worn in the War of Liberty, and charged them 
"Never to take it from the scabbard but in self-defense, or in 
defense of their country and her freedom; and commanding 
them, that when it should thus be drawn, they should never 
sheath it nor give it up, but prefer falling with it In their hands 
to the relinquishment thereof" — words, the majesty and simple 
eloquence of which are not surpassed in the oratory of Athens 
and Rome. 

It will be the duty of the Historian and the Sage in all ages 
to let no occasion pass of commemorating this illustrious man; 
and until time shall be no more will a test of the progress which 
our race has made in wisdom and in virtue be derived from the 
veneration paid to the immortal name of WASHINGTON !

KENTUCKY. 

A sovereign, in this sovereignty of States, 

She marched within the new Republic's gates,- 

And proud, and strong, and undismayed. 

Unto the Union pledged her shining blade; 

Her faith she gave, as one of that free few, 

Against a common foe, her part to do; 

To hold the compact and its terms fulfill. 

As ally bound, but else, the sovereign still; 

And through this reach of intervening years 

What faith has been more nobly kept than hers? 

When on the lake-line north, and further west, 

The savage war-cry rose, she sent her best, 

And every field and bloody battle plain 

Was sanctified and hallowed by her slain; 

When Packenham, with England's proudest means, 

Swept boldly down on salient New Orleans, 

Who held the sacred bonds of Union then 

Like young Kentucky's stalwart riflemen? 

And when in later days we came to know 

The sanguine fields of ancient Mexico, 

What braver troops than hers, were braver led — 

What nobler blood than hers more nobly shed? 

Hail to the Queen! the fairest and the best 
That ever yet has reigned in this wide West, 
That from her royal mother's mountain bound 
Came through to grace and glorify the ground. 
Hail to the Queen ! who on this frowning wild 
Looked with her sunlit eyes until it smiled; 
Who in the darkness of a land unknown 
Built up the golden splendor of her throne. 
God save the Queen! who shows her right to reign 
By royal flow of blood and strength of brain; 
Who rules and leads and keeps her forward way 
Toward the endless light of endless day. 

— From Centennial Ode by Henry T. Stanton. 



KENTUCKY'S PART IN THE REVOLUTION. 



An Address delivered by Samuel M. Wilson before the Kentucky Society 

of Sons of the Revolution, at Lexington, Kentucky, 

on April 5, 1904. 



At one of our former meetings the question was asked if 
there was not some way by which the descendants of the pioneers 
who explored and settled Kentucky and held it against the sav- 
ages and their unnatural British allies might be granted admis- 
sion into this Society. The question, perhaps, was even broader 
than this and suggested that in the event applicants of this descrip- 
tion were eligible to membership, how could they support their 
claims with the requisite "documentary evidence?" 

Without assuming to answer either of these questions, it has 
occurred to me that they present a still broader and more funda- 
mental question, namely, What was Kentucky's part in the Revo- 
lution ? 

The battle of Lexington was fought on the 19th of April, 
1775. Scarcely three weeks before, Daniel Boone and his fellow 
roadmakers had reached the south bank of the Kentucky River, 
and near the mouth of Otter Creek had marked the site of Boones- 
boro. Kentucky at this time was an unexplored region of in- 
definite extent. This region was supposed to be a part of the 
territory of Virginia, but so shadowy was her title that a company 
of enterprising gentlemen of North Carolina undertook to buy 
two-thirds of this immense tract, lying south of the Kentucky 
River and west and north of the Cumberland, from the Cherokee 
Indians at Watauga. Notwithstanding the treaty of Fort Stanwix 
in 1768, which seemed to relinquish to Great Britain and her col- 
onies the complicated Indian title to Kentucky and other border 
lands of the West, the Shawnee tribes north of the Ohio still 
claimed the right of occupancy in their ancient hunting ground. 
As a political subdivision of Virginia, Kentucky was not yet 
known. The name of the region was as uncertain as its title. The 

(139) 



140 SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 

most western county of Virginia at this time was the County 
of Fincastle, which necessarily included Kentucky. The name 
Kentucky was used for the purpose of identification, but it ap- 
pears to have been applied not to the transmontane region as 
a whole, but to a particular part of it now known to us as 
"Central Kentucky." This localization of the name is strongly 
illustrated by the habit of addressing letters in early times to 
persons "At Kentucky," a center of settlement and civilization 
in the savage, unbroken and seemingly boundless wilderness. 
This notion has been preserved even to the present day in the 
Eastern part of the State where I was asked by one of the na- 
tives some two years ago if the apple crop in Kentucky was 
not unusually good that season. Louisa, Levisa, Chenoa, Che- 
noca, Transylvania, Fincastle, Kentucky — these were a few of 
the diverse names by which this far-western region was known. 
Spasmodic efforts at exploration and settlement had been made 
by small parties of homeseekers and adventurers, prospecting 
on their own account, from the time of Col. James Patton and 
Dr. Thomas Walker in 1748 and 1750 to the coming of the 
McAfees in 1773-4. But no secure foothold had been gained and 
no permanently successful inroad had been made prior to the 
arrival of the Transylvania Colonists in April, 1775. The war of 
the Revolution dates from the battle of Lexington, fought on the 
19th of April, 1775. The organized and systematic and per- 
manent settlement of Kentucky begins practically with the same 
date. This settlement was begun not merely in rebellion against 
the crown of Great Britain, but in derogation of the rights 
of the Colonial governments of Virginia and North Carolina 
as well. Henderson and Hart and their associates undertook to 
establish a proprietary government, not as Penn and Baltimore 
had done, by virtue of a charter from the King, but by right 
of private contract. This colony of Transylvania was to be 
separate and independent of the older colonies not by virtue of 
any compact or articles of separation between the parties but 
solely by the force of their own choice and declaration to that 
effect. Ignoring the parent colonies, the Transylvania pro- 
moters sought recognition from the Continental Congress as an 
independent Commonwealth and despatched their representa- 
tives to Philadelphia before they sued for leniency at Williams- 
burg. The dreams of these empire-builders were shortlived, but 



KENTUCKY'S PART IN THE REVOLUTION. 141 

they were none the less splendid and marked their authors as 
men of unusual genius, enterprise and daring. Their whole 
program was revolutionary. Every man of them proceeded 
in utter disregard of the sovereignty of both King and Colony 
and acknowledged no over-lord or superior in the prosecution 
of their plans. It is not without interest and significance in 
this connection to recall that by the Proclamation of 1763 the 
King of Great Britain had forbidden any grants of land be- 
yond those lying on the headwaters of the streams which flow 
eastward into the Atlantic ocean. Nearly all the streams in 
Kentucky flow in a northwesterly direction, so that every land- 
grant and every appropriation of land on these "Western 
Waters" was made in open defiance of the royal proclamation 
and prerogative. 

The unique position which Kentucky occupied may be brought 
out in a still stronger light by other considerations. Thus as 
an independent proprietary government it stood "midway be- 
tween the claims of Great Britain on the north, of colonial 
Virginia on the east, and of the Spanish government on the 
south and west." It was no doubt anticipated by the Hender- 
son speculators that the distractions incident to the war in the 
eastern part of the country would divert attention from this 
revolutionary enterprise until it could be firmly established. But 
they counted without their host. The country to which they 
claimed title was already dotted here and there with the cabins 
of the more venturesome pioneers and with a few of those 
nuclei of population called "Stations." These forerunners of 
the Transylvania movement looked upon that movement with 
suspicion if not with genuine alarm. These free and hardy 
sons of the forest were filled with a devouring land-hunger 
even more insatiable than the Spaniards' thirst for gold. But 
they were also jealous of their wild forest freedom. They knew 
nothing of the feudal system except to abhor it. Quit-rents 
such as the Transylvania proprietors proposed were a badge of 
vassalage and this was wholly at war with the free spirit of 
the pioneers and their intense longing for landed independence. 
Nothing less than a freehold estate could satisfy their craving, 
for with them, as with the knights and barons of old, no lesser 
estate was considered worthy of a freeman's acceptance. 



142 SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 

Fortunately for the future of the Commonwealth as well as 
for the good of the parties immediately concerned, these un- 
willing tenants of the Transylvania Company found a ready and 
able champion of their cause in the person of that farsighted 
and patriotic soldier of fortune, George Rogers Clark. It is a 
never-ceasing subject of surprise to me that such a man should 
have appeared in such a quarter at such a time. He combined 
in himself in the highest degree command over the three great 
departments of political activity, viz., war, diplomacy, and state- 
craft. He has been called the "Hannibal of the West," but the 
likeness, it seems to me, stops short with the persons of the 
two men, for their careers were radically dissimilar. In the 
versatility and vigor of his genius he may be likened with equal 
propriety to the great Napoleon. But in my opinion he re- 
sembles no one so much both in character and achievement as 
he does that intrepid spirit, Robert Clive, and his conquest of 
British India. With a keen perception of the state of things in 
the western country, its exposed condition and the strategic 
value of its outposts; with no means at his command equal to 
the contest, but with unwavering devotion to his native land, 
a supreme confidence in himself, and a courage that oftentimes 
bordered on foolhardy recklessness, George Rogers Clark ac- 
complished for Virginia and the Confederation only on a smaller 
scale what Clive accomplished for Great Britain in its empire 
of the East. 

Clark's first efforts were directed toward balking the plans 
of the Transylvania Company. This done, he straightway 
turned his attention to the conquest of the Northwest. Recent 
revival of interest in this period has made the romantic story of 
how Kaskaskia and Cahokia were taken and "Old Vincennes" 
captured and recaptured again and the neighboring Indian tribes 
completely pacified, a familiar tale to all of us, but I doubt 
whether any of us have consciously and carefully tried to answer 
the question as to what was Kentucky's part in these stirring 
and momentous events. 

Without attempting anything like a minute and comprehensive 
presentation of the facts, it is enough to point out that the work 
done by Kentuckians during the Revolutionary War in subduing 
the forest, in checking the Indians, in resisting the assaults of 
hostile bands instigated and frequently accompanied and led by 




A. SMITH BOWMAN. 



KENTUCKY'S PART IN THE REVOLUTION. 143 

inhuman English allies, in building frontier forts and afford- 
ing protection to the scattered and defenseless settlers, and in 
boldly and enthusiastically seconding the war of conquest against 
the English military posts of the Northwest, was a direct and 
substantial contribution to the success of the American cause. 
Had the Indians come against this border-land clad in redcoats 
instead of redskins, no one can doubt that they would have met 
with the same determined repulse that time after time swept 
them back across the Ohio. The Indian invasions were all a 
part of the British scheme for subjugating the rebellious colo- 
nies. Because the red men had, perhaps, private and tribal 
grievances of their own, against the immigrant whites, does 
not detract from the significance of their alliance with the Brit- 
ish. They were co-partners in a common cause. The same 
brutality which prompted the use of mercenary Hessians on the 
Atlantic coast secured the employment of blood-thirsty red- 
skins in the valleys of the Ohio and Mississippi. But if I may 
judge others by my own way of looking at these things, it 
has not been our habit to look upon the Indian conflicts as 
in any sense a part of the great struggle ior American inde- 
pendence. Would it make any difference in our view of the 
matter if these savage invaders had all been clad, like Tecumseh 
at the Thames, in a British uniform? Taking the substance 
and letting go of the shadow of things, it seems to me that 
every blow struck by a pioneer in conflict with the Indians, was 
a blow struck in behalf of the Colonies against the Crown. 
Tories could not dwell peaceably, much less thrive, amid the 
liberty-loving settlements of the West. Every immigrant from 
"Old Virginia" and the Carolinas was of necessity a Whig 
and a patriot. Lands were granted as a reward for military 
service against the English and in return for allegiance to the 
newly-created Commonwealths. The Tories — the native sym- 
pathizers with the foreign foe — were treated with even greater 
severity than the British themselves and where they were not 
subjected to the barbarities of war, suffered a social ostracism 
scarcely less bearable, and were compelled to witness the con- 
fiscation and spoliation of their property. This enmity toward the 
Tories was carried out in the Virgina land law, which not only 
limited the grants to soldiers and loyal citizens, but provided for 
the escheat of lands previously patented to subjects of Great 



144 SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 

Britain. It will be remembered that old Transylvania Univer- 
sity got a large part of her original endowment under the opera- 
tion of this drastic law of escheat. 

It strikes me as something more than a mere coincidence 
that the westward movement of population to Kentucky and the 
outbreak of the Revolution in Virginia and New England came 
at about one and the same time. It seems as if a fallible human 
foresight had had its defects supplied by a designing Providence. 
Knowing that a rear-guard would be indispensable during the 
protracted struggle in which the Colonies were about to en- 
g'age, and that the feeble and timorous governments on the 
seaboard might not take the necessary precautions if left to 
themselves, the God of Battles seems to have provided for the 
certain emergency by impelling the settlers westward. And this 
thought seems to have been in Boone's mind when he speaks 
of himself as "an instrument ordained to settle the wilderness." 
It was not in the hope of greater safety or exemption from hos- 
tilities that they came. These sturdy backwoodsmen had far 
less fear of King George's uniformed veterans than they had 
of the unreclaimed and unmapped wilderness and its savage, 
lurking beasts and still more savage and stealthy men. They 
came because of their needs, because of their lust for land, and 
because the impulse to come was irresistible, but they came not 
through fear or any craven desire to escape the brunt of the 
impending conflict, but as valiant forerunners of the mighty hosts 
which in war and in peace were soon to follow after. At Boones- 
boro, at Bryan's Station, at Harrodsburg, at Logan's Fort, at 
McClelland's Station, at Ruddle's and Martin's Stations, at Lex- 
ington, at the Falls of the Ohio and other historic spots, they 
erected their modest dwellings and built their crude stockades 
and bid defiance to their enemies, both civilized and savage. 
Tlime and again their courage and their fortitude were tested 
and many noble lives were sacrificed and much blood was spilled, 
but they stood firm and held their ground against all comers 
with an unyielding faith in the ultimate triumph of the American 
arms. 

These pioneer riflemen were seldom enlisted in any regularly 
organized military company, or, if enlisted, no care was taken 
to preserve the muster rolls. No record was kept of their en- 
listment or their services, and having performed their "tour" 



KENTUCKY'S PART IN THE REVOLUTION. 145 

of duty in the campaign immediately before them, they dropped 
the rifle for the axe and the hunting-knife for the plough and 
resumed the more congenial occupation of tilling the soil and 
clearing the forest. They were volunteers in the truest and 
most literal sense of the word. They fought not for con- 
quest or glory but to defend their families, to win their inde- 
pendence and to secure to their homes freedom from molesta- 
tion and attack. They were Cincinnati every one of them, the 
highest type of patriots. Unlike their brethren, the Minute- 
men of the older Colonies, of whom John Randolph in the 
United States Senate once said rather cynically that they were 
so-called because they "were raised in a minute, armed in a 
minute, fought in a minute, and vanquished in a minute," 
these warriors of the west did not waste their time masquerad- 
ing as a valiant Home Guard, invincible in time of peace, but 
ready to flee on the first approach of an enemy, but they armed 
and organized only under the pressure of a real necessity and 
then they became a terror at which the stoutest Indian heart 
might quail. What they did at Boonesboro, at Estill's Defeat, 
at the Blue Licks, at the Blockhouses on the Wilderness Road 
and in the campaigns against the Northwest is written imperish- 
ably in the memory of their descendants and their fellow- 
countrymen. But the proof of their sufferings and their serv- 
ice lies largely in tradition. Few written memorials have been 
preserved — the "documentary evidence" which our membership 
demands is wanting, and this want puts a bar of exclusion in 
the way of those who are otherwise eligible and entirely worthy 
to enroll themselves as true "Sons of the Revolution." In com- 
mon with her sister States of the South, Kentucky has been slow 
to manifest her appreciation of departed worth by erecting monu- 
ments to their memory. At heart I think we are just as keenly 
alive to the merits of our great men and women as any people 
in the land, but by outward, visible tokens we have been all 
too slow in manifesting this feeling of reverence and admira- 
tion. Monuments of brass and marble are expensive and not al- 
ways satisfactory or appropriate. In the case of one modest 
but tasteful shaft in this city we have seen how ruthlessly after 
the passing of a few generations the iconoclastic hand of pro- 
gress and improvement can destroy the touching tribute which 
love pays to the honored dead. This emphasizes the truth that 



146 SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 

next after character itself there is nothing in this changeable 
and changing world as stable and abiding and imniortal as a 
little book. There is no monument as lasting as the printed page. 
How then can we better show our gratitude and our admira- 
tion for the departed heroes of the pioneer age and what better 
service can we render our neighbors and fellow-^Kentuckians 
who deserve to belong and by all means ought to belong to this 
■society, but are kept out for lack of the necessary "documentary 
evidence," than to collect the vagrant data scattered here and 
there through official records — land-warrants, deeds and deposi- 
tions — and private correspondence and private papers, which 
tend to establish the Revolutionary services of the pioneer fore- 
fathers? A valuable work in this direction might be accom- 
plished merely by compiling and bringing together in one volume 
a list of the names of these pioneer soldiers of the Revolutionary 
period and by collecting from books already published, which 
expressly or incidentally treat of that period, all available in- 
formation on the subject. An annual contribution of this kind 
will in time grow into a literary monument of incalculable value. 
It may after all be but a "literary cemetery" but it will be a 
noble city of the dead and from its epitaphs, from its record of 
patient suffering, of serviceable life and heroic death, present and 
future generations may gather not only material for eloquent 
funeral orations but fresh inspiration for the deeds of sacrifice 
and service and daring of which humanity ever stands in need. 
Thus this Society may do for Central Kentucky what the Filson 
Club has been doing for the State at large. It can at least utilize 
the old materials in a new way and thus furnish to the world 
ample justification for its continued existence. 

As bringing vividly to mind the reality of the war in Ken- 
tucky and the Northwest, by the kindness of a most estimable 
Daughter of the Revolution whom I am happy to count as one 
of my best friends, I have been given the privilege of reading 
to you two letters written by members of Clark's Garrison at 
Kaskaskia in September, 1779. These letters were addressed to 
Colonel Evan Shelby, who at that time was Colonel of the 
militia of Washington County, Virginia, and was the father 
of Kentucky's first governor. The writers were evidently resi- 
dents of Washington County, where a number of the troops

who accompanied General Clark on his several expeditions to 
the Illinois country were recruited.

It requires no imagination to heighten the eflect or lend color 
to the brief but impressive narrative contained in these early 
models of phonetic spelling. It brings back those strenuous 
days — the march of Clark and his faithful followers through 
the "drowned lands of the Wabash," the frequent pow-wows 
with wavering but half-friendly Indian tribes, the valuable in- 
tercession of the French priest with his Indian half-breed or 
Canadian-French parishioners, whom one of our cultured fel- 
low-townsmen on St. Patrick's Day humorously declared were 
Irishmen because they received absolution from the priest be- 
fore going with Clark on his second campaign against Vin- 
cennes. He evidently reasoned (some,what facetiously) that 
this land is to-day so largely the inheritance of descendants of 
the Scotch and the Irish and the Scotch-Irish that the French, 
whom Clark shrewdly converted to his purpose, might safely 
be left wholly out of the count. The treaty between France 
and the United Colonies came at a most opportune time for 
Clark's purpose and was as effective as armed legions in achiev- 
ing the surrender of the frontier English forts and in winning 
the half-neutral Indians to permanent peace and amity. 

Let us lend our aid so far as we may to the pleasant task 
of saving from total oblivion the names and the fame of those 
Kentuckians who took part in this notable struggle. Kentucky 
shares in the glories of the Revolution not simply because she 
was geographically and politically an integral part of Virginia, 
but because her part in the war was in large measure distinc- 
tive and peculiar to herself. She rendered a service which could 
not have been had without her and it is certain either that the 
cause would have been entirely lost or that peace would have 
been made with the Colonies confined to a much narrower 



KENTUCKY'S PART IN THE REVOLUTION. 149 

Strip of territory had Kentucky been eliminated as a factor in 
the struggle. 

With clear appreciation of this fact, a recent writer has 
summed up the situation in a sentence. "When the armies of 
the Revolutionary War are counted," says Mr. Archer Butler 
Hulbert in his Historic Highways of America, "that first army 
of twenty-five thousand men, women and children which hurried 
over Boone's little path, through dark Powell's Valley, over the 
'high-swung gateway' of Cumberland Gap, and down through 
the laurel wildernesses to Crab Orchard, Danville, Lexington, and 
Louisville, must not be forgotten. No army ever meant so much 
to the West; some did not mean more to the East." 



THE MOTHERS OF THE WEST. 

The Mothers of our Forest-land! 

Stout-hearted dames were they; 
With nerve to wield the battle-brand, 

And join the border fray. 
Our rough land had no braver 

In its days of blood and strife — 
Aye ready for severest toil, 

Aye free to peril life. 

The Mothers of our Forest-land! 

On old Kentucky's soil, 
How shared they with each dauntless band 

War's tempest and life's toil! 
They shrank not from the foeman, 

They quailed not in the fight. 
But cheered their husbands through the day, 

And soothed them through the night. 

The Mothers of our Forest-land! 

Their bosoms pillowed men; 
And prolid were they by such to stand 

In hammock, fort, or glen; 
To load the sure old rifle, 

To run the leaden ball. 
To watch a battling husband's place. 

And fill it should he fall !

A MEMENTO OF POST-REVOLUTIONARY DAYS IN 

KENTUCKY. 



Fayette County, Ky., July 5, 1794. 

To His Excellency, Isaac Shelby, 

Governor of Kentucky: 

My Esteemed Friend — I was greatly disappointed by your 
not coming to my house on yesterday (July 4). We had a 
glorious time and a big dinner. Forty men sat down at my 
tables, who had served in the late struggle for our freedom and 
independence. It was a glorious sight to behold, and I wish 
King George III and Lord North could have witnessed the 
scene in the wilds of America. On the return of this glorious 
birthday of our freedom from British despotism, the heart of 
every patriot in the late struggle may rightfully pour its high- 
est tribute to God and the great sages and soldiers who re- 
solved to stake their lives and sacred honor in maintaining the 
Declaration of Independence. Throughout the limits of our 
country, from Massachusetts to Georgia, the hearts of a free 
and happy people have been dedicated on yesterday to the con- 
templation of the great blessings achieved and bequeathed to us 
by such heroic leaders as George Washington, Israel Putnam, 
and Nathaniel Greene. Such brave leaders took their lives in 
their hands, and liberty or death was inscribed on their hearts. 
God, in the plenitude of His beneficence, has generally chosen 
men qualified to resist kings and tyrants in their attacks on the 
rights of the people. The history of our mother country fur- 
nished full proof of this fact and our own glorious country in 
the late war for independence is a more brilliant illustration of 
the great truth that God hates all tyrants and despotic rulers, 
and sooner or later overthrows all such rascals in causing the 
people to rise up and cut their heads ofiF. 
Truly thy old friend, 

William Price,

THE WOMEN OF BRYAN'S STATION. 

A hundred years and more have sped 

Since here at Bryan's Station 
The woman-nature grandly shed 

Its luster on creation. 
A simple act it seemed to those, 

The sister, mother, daughter. 
Who in the front of savage foes 

Went down this path for water. 

Some pioneers had made their way 

Across the rugged border, 
To give this spot the light of day 

And bring its soil to order; 
Some iron men who braved the wild, 

Through rude, untrodden courses. 
To find where kindly nature smiled 

Amid her rich resources. 

To shield themselves from raiding bands 

That left this savage nation. 
Those pioneers, with stalwart hands, 

Erected Bryan's Station. 
You know the story — how they came 

For mad rapine and slaughter. 
And how our women went to fame 

Along this path for water. 

In history, though briefly told, 

Is found the graphic story 
That proves the woman-nature gold 

And radiant of glory. 
Here, fronting death, in battle's fen, 

For love's divine relation, 
They brought the draught to thirsting men 

That saved old Bryan's Station. 

And meet it is when years have passed. 

That by these living waters 
A noting stone should come at last 

As tribute from their daughters. 
How good it is, that where this spring 

Flows down to join the river. 
There now should stand a speaking thing 

To tell their fame forever! 

—Henry T. Stanton. 



THE OHIO VALLEY IN THE REVOLUTION. 



An Address delivered by Samuel M. Wilson before the Ohio Society of 

Sons of the Revolution, at the Queen City Qub, Cincinnati, Ohio, 

on October 19, 1908. 



The Flying-Camp and the Minute-Man 

Have had their meed of praise; 
To the Pioneer and Backwoodsman 

We'll pledge these laurel bays ! 

Mr. President and Gentlemen of the Ohio and Kentucljy 
Societies of Sons of the Revolution: 

In obedience to the very kind and cordial invitation lately 
extended by this magnificent Society of the Queen City, we 
have come, a half-score of Kentuckians, to join with you to- 
night in commemorating an event which virtually terminated 
the Revolutionary War "with the seal of Independence." On 
the seventeenth of last June, in the heart of the Blue Grass, it 
was our rare pleasure to have you as our guests in celebrating 
the anniversary of the first important battle of that same momen- 
tous struggle. As the Battle of Bunker Hill marked its be- 
ginning, so the Surrender at Yorktown marks its close. With- 
in the compass of the six years, which separated these two car- 
dinal events, is embraced nearly everything of importance that 
transpired during the war. We are familiar with the doings 
of Washington and his generals, with the campaigns of the 
Colonial Militia and the Continental Line, and with the sacrifices 
and suffering and the heroic service of unnumbered patriots who 
withstood the enemy along the Atlantic coast and throughout 
the regions watered by streams, which flow eastwardly into that 
ocean. But in the one hundred and twenty-five years which 
have sped by since peace with Great Britain was proclaimed, 
what attention have the sons and grandsons of sires, who acted 
their heroic and gallant part in the great contest, paid to the 
progress of the war in the West, and to the fierce death-struggle 

(153)

there carried on between friends and adherents of the Colonies 
and the submissive subjects and servants of the British Crown? 
Believing that this sphere of action has been too much neglected, 
that it will bear a closer study and is everyway worthy of your in- 
terest and your admiration, I invite your attention for a few 
moments to-night while I attempt to speak briefly of "The Ohio 
Valley in the Revolution." 

At the bare mention of so broad 'a theme, do not, I pray 
you, begin to run over in your minds the length and breadth 
and spaciousness, or compute the acreage or bound by parallels 
of latitude and longitude that magnificent imperial domain 
which miodern cartography has named "the Ohio Valley." Far 
be lit from me to so abuse your patience or so pervert the pur- 
poses of this festive hour as to seek to stun or stagger you with 
the tonnage of the text, to weary and bewilder you with un- 
meaning details, or to traverse countless leagues of the earth's 
surface in the brief quarter of an hour at my disposal. The 
geographer and the statistician can better serve you in that role. 

The true boundaries of the Ohio Valley were almost as un- 
known in the time of the Revolution as the interior of the Dark 
Continent before Livingston and Stanley penetrated and mapped 
its secret recesses. It was for the most part terra incognita, and 
Finley and Boone and Kenton in Kentucky and Dark and Todd 
and Bowman and their brothers-in-arms on this side of the 
river, were explorers and discoverers, quite as much as they were 
simple invaders of a disputed territory, in their persistent war- 
fare with untamed Nature and in their determined conquest of 
the native human occupants of the soil. 

From Fort Pitt and Lake Erie on the north to the conflu- 
ence of the Ohio and Mississippi on the south, and from the 
Allegheny and connected ranges of mountains on the east to 
the central watershed of the Father of Waters on the west, this 
ill-defined and unsurveyed region, roughly speaking and with- 
out taking the landmarks too literally, constituted the Ohio 
Valley which, in merest outline, I would have you recall to your 
minds to-night. It was a theatre of practically limitless extent, 
the actors were comparatively few, but on this stage was en- 
acted one of the mightiest and most thrilling dramas ever 
vouchsafed to the human race. 




DR. S. H. HALLEY. 



THE OHIO VALLEY IN THE REVOLUTION. ISS 

It has teen beautifully said of it by one of your Ohio au- 
thors — "The Ohio reached far out into the foothills of the Al- 
leghenies and Cumberland Mountains, beckoning to the Colo- 
nists on the Atlantic seacoast; with outstretched arms, spread 
as wide apart as are the sources of the Allegheny on the north and 
those of the Tennessee on the south, it called through the dark 
forests to the conquerors of the West to come to their own 
for their own was waiting to receive them gladly." This great 
river of the Middle West was in time sure to become the main 
natural highway of inland travel and, consequently, the occupa- 
tion of the Ohio Basin was of the highest strategic importance, 
because the occupation of the remainder of the continent must, 
of necessity, inevitably follow. But as Parkman has well said: 
"If the English-speaking population flowed westward, it was in 
obedience to natural laws, for the King did not aid the movement, 
and the Royal Governor had no authority to do so. The power 
of the colonies was that of a rising flood, slowly invading and 
conquering by the unconscious force of its own growing volume, 
unless means be found to hold it back by dams and embank- 
ments within its appointed limits." Hence it was that not only 
Kentucky and Western Pennsylvania but the widespreading 
prairie lands of "the Illinois" and all this mighty Valley of 
the Ohio, even to the turbid waters of the parent stream of all — 
the invincible Mississippi itself — were, by the irresistible march 
of events, made sure as a possession and an inheritance for 
Virginia and, by cession from her, became in time part and 
parcel of these United States, and will so remain forever! 

Throughout the bloody years from 1775 to 1783, the Ohio 
River was the boundary line between the advancing pioneers 
from the Southwest and the British and Indians in the North- 
west; not only was it a boundary line, but also the one great 
avenue of ingress and egress where countless minor battles were 
fought on water and forest-bound shore. The American head- 
quarters were at Fort Pitt; the British at Fort Detroit. These 
points, together with Fort Niagara, also held by the British, 
formed the key of the great West. Fort Pitt was the threshold 
of the northern door to this vast region. This post at the "Forks 
of the Ohio" was the starting-point and base of supplies for many 
campaigns and expeditions before and after, as well as during, 
the Revolution. 



156 SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 

At the first outbreak of hostilities, the Americans attempted 
to neutralize and pacify the Indians who inhabited the dense 
forest that lay between Pittsburg and Detroit and so success- 
ful were they that it was two years before active, organized war 
in the west was begun. The Delawares on the Muskingum 
remained neutral until near the close of the war; the British, 
however, as early as 1777, were successful in arousing the fight- 
ing blood of the Wyandots and Shawanese and lesser allied 
tribes, wild for the warpath and filled with greedy lust for the 
bounty for scalps. 

It was upon Westmoreland, Washington, and Fayette coun- 
ties, in Pennsylvania, and the Panhandle of West Virginia — the 
"Monongahela Country" (or West Augusta, as it was officially 
called by the Virginians), that the first blows of the Revolution 
in the West, outside of Kentucky, were struck, while the brunt 
of the struggle was undoubtedly borne by the Kentucky settle- 
ments, which grew steadily from 1775 to 1783, or throughout 
the entire period of the Revolution. As soon as the news of 
strife on the seacoast had time to spread, the borders were 
aflame with wars and fightings. The men who in this crisis de- 
fended the western border against the savage tribes — the fron- 
tiersmen, in their conflicts with Tory and Canadian loyalists, 
British partisans, and blood-thirsty savages, during the years 
when Washington and his comrades were fighting for inde- 
pendence along the Atlantic seaboard — ^were doing the work 
essential to the cause of freedom, as well as the ragged continen- 
tals who faced British and Hessian battalions in New York or 
New Jersey or the rugged mountaineers who overcame Fergu- 
son and Cornwallis in Virginia and the Carolinas. 

"Two of the most powerful nations of Europe contested for 
the possession of the 'Forks of the Ohio.' " The hostile In- 
dians made repeated efforts to destroy the Fort erected at the 
confluence of the Allegheny and Monongahela rivers, first by 
the French and later by the British, and strove incessantly to 
regain and hold possession of the hunting-grounds which were 
fast slipping from their grasp. 

After the season of rest and quiet which followed the sup- 
pression of Pontiac's Rebellion, a contest was inaugurated be- 
tween the Provinces of Pennsylvania and Virginia for the con- 
trol of Fort Pitt. As the trouble with the colonies increased. 



THE OHIO VALLEY IN THE REVOLUTION. 157 

the British Government deemed it advisable to abandon Fort 
Pitt and to withdraw the troops stationed there as a garrison. 
In January, 1774, troops from Virginia, sent by the Governor, 
Lord Dunmore, under command of Dr. James Connelly, took 
possession and changed the name to Fort Dunmore. Dr. Con- 
nelly was arrested by Arthur St. Clair, then a magistrate of 
Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania, and put in jail, but was 
soon released on bail. He went back to Virginia, but shortly 
returned with civil and military authority to enforce the laws 
of Virginia. This contest continued for several years and the 
warring factions made the ownership of Fort Pitt uncertain. 
Maryland, too, had contended, sometimes with the shedding of 
blood, for the possession of this important point. It was not 
until 1785 that commissioners were appointed, the boundary of 
Western Pennsylvania finally run, and that State established in 
the possession of Fort Pitt and the "Monongahela Country," 
as if was called. 

From the conspiracy of Pontiac, which culminated in a 
frightful carnival of blood and rapine in 1763-1764, down to 
the year in which Cornstalk and his fierce warriors were re- 
pulsed at the mouth of the Great Kanawha, the Indians gen- 
erally were held in check. But with the opening of the Revolu- 
tionary struggle, this enforced quiet was broken, the Indians 
were incited by British emissaries to fresh attacks on the ex- 
posed frontiers, and the war in the West was as determined and 
even more vicious and bloody than the Whig and Tory con- 
flicts then in progress on the seaboard. 

In a peace conference held at Fort Pitt in July, 1776, Pon- 
tiac and Guyasuta avowed that in the impending conflict be- 
tween England and America the Indians on the north and west 
of the Ohio and its main source, the Allegheny, would refuse 
to take sides, but would maintain an armed neutrality. But this 
promise was no sooner made than broken. 

During the struggle for independence, the settlements west 
of the Alleghenies had little to fear from the invading armies 
of Great Britain; but, influenced by the EngHsh, the implacable 
Indians carried on their periodic murderous excursions. 

Instigated by the agents of Great Britain, it was not long 
before a deadly struggle began. Scalping parties of Indians 
ravaged the frontier, sparing neither age nor sex, and burning

and destroying all that came in their path. Companies with 
headquarters at Fort Pitt, were formed to protect the settle- 
ments, and expeditions were made into the enemy's country, 
but with no very great or enduring success. 

Brigadier-General Edward Hand took command of Fort Pitt 
in June, 1777, and some time later made several expeditions 
against the Indians, but, having an insufificient force, his opera- 
tions were singularly unfortunate. These fruitless efforts only 
emboldened the savages to continue their desperate attacks. 

In 1778, General Hand was succeeded by Brigadier-General 
Lachlan Mcintosh. The latter planned a formidable expedition 
into the "Indian Country," as the Ohio, Indiana and Illinois 
shore of the River was known thro' many critical years, but only 
succeeded in erecting two forts, Fort Mcintosh and Fort 
Laurens, one on Beaver Creek, a small tributary of the upper 
Ohio, the otiher near Sandusky Bay. He was unable to draw the 
Indians into an actual encounter, and, disheartened from the 
want of men and supplies, he resigned his command. The dep- 
redations of the Indians continued and in a short time Colonel 
Daniel Brodhead was assigned to the difficult post on the Ohio. 
Like his predecessors, he planned great things, but lacked the 
means necessary to put them into execution. 

In November, 1781, General William Irvine took command of 
the disorganized post at Fort Pitt and by his firmness soon re- 
stored order, and comparative quiet reigned through the winter 
of 1782-1783 on the Pennsylvania border. On October 1, 1783, 
simultaneously with the establishment of peace between Great 
Britain and the United States, General Irvine took his final leave 
of the Ohio Valley. 

Among the hundreds of small actions that took place on the 
Ohio during the eight years of the war, the attacks on Fort 
Henry at Wheeling in 1777 and again in 1782 and the defeat 
of Colonel David Rogers near Cincinnati in 1779, stand con- 
spicuous as the most important fights immediately on the river. 

"The second attack on Fort Henry occurred early in Sep- 
tember, 1782, about two weeks after the terrible battle of the 
Blue Licks in Kentucky, which filled the whole West with sor- 
row, mourning and alarm." It is of the highest significance 
that in this attack the Indians advanced with a British flag waving 
over them. 



THE OHIO VALLEY IN THE REVOLUTION. 159 

It was in the second attack on Fort Henry that the dauntless 
Elizabeth Zane performed the heroic feat of fetching for the 
beleagfuered fort a fresh supply of powder from the magazine 
which had been improvised at her father's block-house, about 
sixty yards away from the fort. This stout-hearted maiden by 
herself alone duplicated the daring exploit of the Bryan Station 
women in Kentucky, which had so thrilled the border scarcely 
a month before. 

"This dauntless pioneer maiden's name 
Is inscribed in gold on the scroll of fame. 
She was the lassie who knew no fear 
When the tomahawk gleamed on the far frontier. 
If deeds of daring should win renown, 
Let us honor this damsel of Wheeling town, 
Who braved the savages with deep disdain — 
Bright-eyed, buxom Elizabeth Zane. 



Talk not to me of Paul Revere 

A man, on horseback, with naught to fear ; 

Nor of old John Burns with his bell-crowned hat — 

He'd an army to back him, so what of that? 

Here's to the heroine, plump and brown, 

Who ran the gauntlet in Wheeling town; 

Here is a record without a stain — 

Beautiful, buxom Elizabeth Zane." 

Many and many a blockhouse where the people of the dif- 
ferent neighborhoods "forted" in times of danger, were invested 
as was Fort Henry. In times of danger, bodies of rangers and 
scouts patrolled the forests and watched the trails of the so- 
called "pathless wilderness" with unwearying caution. 

In the sanguinary defeat of Colonel David Rogers, who was 
trapped into an ambuscade at the mouth of the Little Miami 
a short distance above your city, sixty Kentuckians were killed 
and of this massacre Butler, the Kentucky historian, says "the 
annals of Indian or border warfare contain not a bloodier page." 
To summarize the course of the war in the Ohio Valley, we 
may group the events around three centers of population and 
military influence and activity. Fort Pitt at the Forks of the 
Ohio, Fort Boonesboro on the Kentucky River, and Fort Sack- 
ville at Vincennes on the Wabash. We have considered in a 



160 SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 

general sort of way the military operations which had their 
springs at Fort Pitt. To my fellow-travelers from Kentucky, 
if not to the Ohio Sons of the Revolution, any minute account 
of the bloody deeds which darkened, while they sanctified, the 
pioneer and Revolutionary annals of Kentucky, would have the 
tiresome ring of an ofttold tale. For all that, it remains true 
that the written memorials and oral traditions among us which 
preserve the mingled chivalry and romance and grim tragedy 
of the bloody deeds which darkened, while they sanctified, the 
whites, are a source of never-ceasing interest and inspiration. 
At Lexington, at Harrodsburg, at Logan's Fort, and at the Falls 
of the Ohio, Indian assaults, instigated by the Canadians and 
British at Niagara and Detroit and other points on the Great 
Lakes, were again and again repelled. Who has not heard of 
the siege of Bryan's Station, where dauntless women saved the 
day, and of the three sieges so valiantly withstood by the intpepid 
defenders of Fort Boone? The Battle of Little Mountain or 
Estill's Defeat was another celebrated encounter in which the 
fierce Wyandottes, in a hand-to-hand combat, worsted the too- 
venturesome whites. Ruddles' and Martin's Stations on the 
Licking were stormed with British cannon, and the Battle of the 
Blue Licks, in which the best and bravest of Kentucky fell, was 
so plainly a Revolutionary engagement that it has been ofificially 
recognized as such by the general government. But why should 
it alone of all the many fights in the war-swept region of Ken- 
tucky receive this high distinction ? With proper exertions on the 
part of the Sons of the Revolution in this great central valley, 
methinks there would be a very different tale to tell. But the 
one brilliantly successful campaign of the Revolution in the 
Central West was the conquest of Illinois by that daring Virginia 
youth, George Rogers Clark. 

And, in the Southwest, contemporaneously with Clark's 
master-stroke and of no less importance was the subjugation by 
Colonel Evan Shelby of the Cherokee and Chickamauga Indians 
on the Southern confines of the Tennessee. A report of both 
achievements was communicated to the Continental Congress by 
Thomas Jefferson, then Governor of Virginia, and appropriate 
Resolutions, expressing the appreciation and thanks of the Con- 
gress and warmly commending these resolute guardians of the 
frontier, were duly adopted by that body. The severe punish- 



THE OHIO VALLEY IN THE REVOLUTION. 161 

ment administered by Colonel Shelby and his firmness at all times 
in dealing with the Southern Indians was of incalculable value 
and supremely important at this critical period, and there is no 
minimizing the heroism of George Rogers Clark's conquest of 
the Illinois and no exaggerating the effects of that conquest. 
The Indians of the Wabash and lake regions no longer hovered 
about Fort Sackville at Vincennes to be urged upon Kentucky 
by British officers. True, the Kentucky stations were attacked 
repeatedly and savagely but without avail. No British-Indian 
army established a foothold south of the Ohio River, and the 
grasp Clark secured in Illinois was never relaxed. Virginia 
immediately took control of the region north of the Ohio and 
retained it until all but the Virginia Military Reservation in 
Ohio was surrendered to the general government. 

Clark's operations on this side of the river are brought vividly 
home to us by reason of the fact that on his later expeditions, 
aimed at the upper Ohio Indians and against the British at Detroit 
he paused to erect one or two block-houses at or very near this 
spot. There are other circumstances connected with that early 
time which should bind the Queen City and the Blue Grass very 
close together. John Filson, our first historian, and Col. Robert 
Patterson, the leading founder of Lexington, in association with 
Israel Ludlow and Matthias Denman laid the foundations of 
this splendid metropolis when they projected their picturesque 
though pedantically-named village of "Losantiville" as the settle- 
ment to be made on this attractive site. Col. John Todd, another 
Lexingtonian, and in ability, courage, and culture easily at the 
head of Kentucky's pioneers, was the first civil governor of the 
county of Illinois, established by Virginia after Clark's conquest 
of the Northwest, and which included all of the present State 
of Ohio and her sister States of Indiana, Illinois, Michigan and 
Wisconsin as well. 

Thus in a very imperfect way and yet at undue length, I 
fear, I have endeavored to sketch the history of military events 
in the Ohio Valley during the Revolution. Enough has been 
said, I trust, to raise a formidable presumption, if not to abso- 
lutely demonstrate, that the Revolution actually did reach the 
waters of the Ohio and the vast inland empire which it drains; 
and the suggestion that there are materials still awaiting ex- 



162 SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 

ploration should provoke further inquiry and research and its 
results will surely repay the labor and time expended. 

Not a few books and numerous able and instructive mono- 
graphs have been written about detached portions of this fasci- 
nating subject. Western Pennsylvania in the Revolution, the 
part Kentucky played and Clark's Conquest of the Illinois, have 
all received attention from the antiquarian and the curious in- 
vestigator but the historian of "The Ohio Valley in the Revolu- 
tion" is yet to come. When the story is told as it deserves to be, 
it will not have the appearance of motley or of a checkered 
mosaic but will stand forth a finished masterpiece — a symmetrical, 
harmonious and connected whole. 

One simple, practical suggestion, in conclusion, and I know 
you will be glad to let me sit down. 

If the men who pioneered and peopled this matchless valley 
of the Middle West, did aught to entitle them to a place and a 
name among the Heroes of "Seventy-Six," those of us here 
gathered, lineal Sons of the Revolution, in this City whose name 
perpetuates the highest type of manhood, the liberty-loving and 
law-respecting citizen-soldier, the ideal hero of a Republican 
Commonwealth, and which also preserves the name appropriated 
and made famous by a fraternal society of the stalwart veterans 
of that immortal struggle, descendants of those who strove 
mightily along the seacoast and on the banks of its majestic rivers, 
descendants, many of us, of trans-Allegheny pioneers, grandsons 
and great-grandsons of Putnam and Zane and their fellow-voy- 
agers from New England, of Symmes and his justice-loving 
Jerseymen, of Patterson and Ludlow and their brave comrades 
from Pennsylvania, of Gist and Cresap and Shelby and the small 
but devoted band of stout-hearted Marylanders, of Clark and 
Todd and the "fighting Virginians," and of many a modest hero 
who tramped alone or with wife and little ones over the long 
and toilsome Wilderness Road from Virginia to Kentucky and 
braved all the nameless dangers and hardships of the wilderness 
that he might plant freedom and a home for his posterity to the 
remotest generation, yea all of us, of whatever name or persua- 
sion, should henceforth unite to redeem the Revolutionary an- 
nals of the Ohio Valley from the obscurity into which many of 
them have fallen and from the oblivion with which they are 
threatened and, with one accord, let us concentrate our at-

tention on this part of our common country in which many 
notable scenes of the great war for independence were enacted 
and not only duly record but annually celebrate the anniversaries 
of the noteworthy incidents which were laid in the Ohio Valley 
during the War of the Revolution.

SKETCH OF VIRGINIA BOUNTY LAND SYSTEM. 



Enough, perhaps, has already been said in the Introduction 
concerning the Land Bounty Warrants granted by the Com- 
monwealth of Virginia to her soldiers and sailors of the Revolu- 
tion, and of which, to the number of 4,627, a catalogue is pub- 
lished herein. But, it may serve to explain more precisely how 
these warrants came to be issued, to give a brief account of the 
system established by the Commonwealth of Virginia for the 
award of such warrants. In attempting to do this, we have 
drawn very freely on Saffell's "Records of the Revolutionary 
War," a valuable compilation published in the year 1858, just 
as Safifell himself had previously drawn on Hening's "Digest 
of Laws on the Subject of Land Bounties" (Hening's Stats, at 
Large of Virginia, Vol. 11, pages 559-565), published in 1823. 

Congress, by acts of the 16th and 18th of September, 1776, 
and others subsequent thereto, stipulated grants of land to the 
officers and soldiers of the Continental Army, and to certain 
officers of the medical department. At that period. Congress 
had no land actually at its disposal, for all of it belonged to the 
States; and it would have been compelled to purchase lands to 
make good its contracts, had it not been for the liberality of 
the States. 

Virginia, holding immense tracts of unappropriated land, 
adopted the idea suggested by the Continental Congress, of grant- 
ing land bounties to her officers and soldiers, both on the State 
and Continental establishments ; and, having it more in her power, 
she was naturally more liberal than Congress in those grants. 

By act of May, 1779, chapter 6 (Hening's Statutes at Large 
of Virginia, Vol. 10, page 23,) "concerning officers, soldiers, 
sailors, and marines," a bounty of one hundred acres is promised 
to each private at the end of the war; and to the officers, the 
like quantity as is allowed to officers of the same rank in Virginia 
regiments on Continental establishment. By the same law, two 
hundred acres are given to each volunteer soldier who served 
under Colonel George Rogers Clark, until the reduction of the 
posts in the Illinois country, and to each soldier who should re- 



SKETCH OF VIRGINIA BOUNTY LAND SYSTEM. 16S 

enlist for the protection of the Illinois country, one hundred acres, 
and the like quantity to each trooper of cavalry who should en- 
list for the war, for the defence of the eastern frontier. 

A quantity of land, not exceeding 150,000 acres, was reserved 
to satisfy the officers and soldiers under Col. George Rogers 
Clark, in the Virginia Cession of the Northwestern Territory 
to the United States. (Hening's Statutes, Vol. 10, page 564, 
and Vol. 11, pages 326, and 566.) 

By said Resolution of January 2, 1781, it is further provided. 

"That in case the quantity of good lands of the southeast 
side of the Ohio upon the waters of Cumberland River and be- 
tween the Green River and the Tennessee River, which have 
been reserved by law for the Virginia troops upon continental 
establishment, and upon their own State establishment, should 
(from the North Carolina line bearing in further upon the 
Cumberland lands than was expected) prove insufficient for their 
legal bounties, the deficiency shall be made up to the said troops 
in good lands to be laid off between the rivers Scioto and Little 
Miami, on the northwest side of the river Ohio, in such propor- 
tions as have been engaged to them by the laws of Virginia." 

The act of May, 1779, chapter 13, Section 2 (Hening's Stat- 
utes, Vol. 10, page SO), prescribes the evidence on which war- 
rants for land bounties shall issue, and by the same chapter 
(Section 3), referring to a Resolution of the General Assembly 
of the 19th of December, 1778, a tract of country, bounded by 
the Green River, the Cumberland Mountains, the North Carolina 
Line, the Tennessee River, and the Ohio River, was reserved for 
the officers and soldiers of Virginia. A considerable part of 
this territory having fallen into North Carolina, by the extension 
. of the boundary line between that State and Virginia, a further 
tract of land, included within the rivers Mississippi, Ohio and 
Tennessee, and the Carolina boundary line, was substituted by 
the act of November, 1781, Chap. 19, Sec. 8, (Hening's Stats., 
Vol. 10, page 462), in lieu of that so fallen into North Carolina. 
By the same act. Section 9, provision is made for surveying these 
military lands; Section 12, declares that the bounties in lands 
given to the officers in the Virginia line in Continental service, 
and the regulations for surveying, shall be extended to the State 
officers; Section 13, gives the cavalry the same advantages as 



166 SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 

the infantry; and Section 14, entitles the officers and seamen of 
the navy to the same advantages as those in the land service. 

But the act of October, 1782 (Hening's Stats., Vol. 11, page 
161), is even more explicit as to the navy, and declares that the 
"officers, seamen, and marines, or their representatives, shall be 
entitled to the same bounty in lands and other emoluments as the 
officers and soldiers of the Virginia Line on Continental estab- 
lishment." 

The Act of October, 1779, Chapter 9 (Hening's Stats., Vol. 
10, page 141), is in these words: 

BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY, 
That every person acting as chaplain, surgeon, or surgeon's 
mate, to any regiment or brigade of officers and soldiers raised 
within this Commonwealth, and upon Continental establishment, 
and who hath or shall hereafter serve in that office the space of 
three years, or during the war, shall be entitled to and have the 
like quantity of lands as is by law allowed to commissioned of- 
ficers receiving the same pay and rations. 

Chapter 21 of the acts of October, 1779 (Hening's Stats., Vol. 
10, page 159), fixes, with precision, the quantity of land to be 
apportioned to the officers and soldiers on the continental and 
state establishments and in the navy, as follows : 

BE IT ENACTED, That the officers who shall have served 
in the Virginia Line on Continental establishment, or in the army 
or navy upon State establishment, to the end of the present war, 
and . the non-commissioned officers, soldiers, and sailors, upon 
either of the said establishments, their heirs or legal representa- 
tives, shall respectively be entitled to and receive the proportion 
and quantities of land following : that is to say, every Colonel, five 
thousand acres; every Lieutenant-Colonel, four thousand, five 
hundred acres; every Major, four thousand acres; every Captain, 
three thousand acres ; every subaltern, two thousand acres ; every 
non-commissioned officer, who, having enlisted for the war, shall 
have served to the end thereof, four hundred acres; and every 
soldier and sailor, under the like circumstances, two hundred 
acres; every non-commissioned officer, who, having enlisted for 
the term of three years, shall have served out the same, or to the 
end of the present war, two hundred acres; and every soldier 
and sailor, under the like circumstances, one hundred acres; 
every officer of the navy, the same quantity of land as an officer 



SKETCH OF VIRGINIA BOUNTY LAND SYSTEM. 167 

of equal rank in the army. And where any officer, soldier, or 
sailor, shall have fallen or died in the service, his heirs or legal 
representatives shall be entitled to and receive the same quantity 
of land as would have been due to such officer, soldier, or sailor 
respectively, had he been living. 

To this, the Act of October, 1780, Chapter 3 (Hening's Stats., 
Vol. 10, page 326), adds the following provision: 

And each recruit, and also all our soldiers, now in service, 
that have already enlisted, or who may hereafter enlist, by the 
first day of April next, to serve during the war, and who shall 
continue to serve .faithfully to the end thereof, shall then receive 
a healthy sound negro, between the ages of ten and thirty years, 
or sixty pounds in gold or silver, at the option of the soldier, in 
lieu thereof, to be paid for or procured by equal assessment on 
property; and, moreover, be entitled to three hundred acres of 
land, in lieu of all such bounties given by any former laws. 

An Act of October, 1780, Chapter 27 (Hening's Stats., Vol. 
10, page 373), further provides: 

BE IT ENACTED, That there shall be allowed to a Major- 
General fifteen thousand acres of land, and to a Brigadier- 
General, ten thousand acres of land, to be reserved to them and 
their heirs, in the same manner and on the same conditions, as is 
by law heretofore directed for the officers and soldiers of the 
Virginia Line in Continental service; and there shall be, more- 
over, allowed to all the officers of this State, on Continental or 
State establishments, or to the legal representatives of such of- 
ficers, according to their respective ranks, an additional bounty 
in lands, in the proportion of one-third of any former bounty 
heretofore granted them. 

AND BE IT FURTHER ENACTED, That the legal repre- 
sentative of any officer on Continental or State establishment, 
who may have died in the service before the bounty of lands 
granted by this or any former law, shall be entitled to demand 
and receive the same, in like manner as the officer himself might 
have done when living, agreeable to this rank. 

The Act of May, 1782, Chapter 47 (Hening's Stats., Vol. 11, 
page 81), contains this provision: 

BE IT FURTHER ENACTED, That any officer or soldier 
who hath not been cashiered or superseded, and who hath served 
the term of three years successively, shall have an absolute and 



168 SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 

unconditional title to his respective apportionment of the land 
appropriated as aforesaid; and for every year which every such 
officer or soldier may have continued, or shall hereafter continue 
in service, beyond the term of six years, to be computed from 
the time he last went into service, he shall be entitled to one-sixth 
part in addition to the quantity of land apportioned to his rank 
respectively. 

The Act of October, 1782, Chapter 34 (Hening's Stats., Vol. 
11, page 161), makes due provision for all Virginians in the naval 
service in these words: 

And that all officers, seamen, and marines, or their represen- 
tatives, shall be entitled to the same bounty in lands and other 
emoluments as the officers and soldiers of the Virginia Line on 
Continental establishment. 

Finally, by Act of October, 1783, Chapter 4 (Hening's Stats., 
Vol. 11, page 309), the following apt directions are given con- 
cerning the order in which the allotted lands shall be taken up — 

AND BE IT FURTHER ENACTED, That the surveyors" 
under the direction of the superintendents, and the claimants 
having a right to survey from the priority of their numbers, 
shall proceed in the first place to survey all the good lands, to be 
adjudged of by the superintendents, in that tract of country 
lying on the Cumberland and Tennessee rivers, as set apart by 
law for the said officers and soldiers, and then proceed in like 
manner to survey on the northwest side of the river Ohio, be- 
tween the rivers Scioto and the Little Miami, until the deficiency 
of all military bounties in lands shall be fully and amply made up. 

In the year 1784, the Superintendents appointed by the depu- 
tation of officers, (October Session, 1783, Chap. 4, Hening's 
Stats., Vol. 11, page 309), proceeded to Kentucky for the pur- 
pose of laying off and surveying the lands in the military dis- 
tricts of the Kentucky reserve, but found them in the possession 
of the Indians, and claimed by them. The settlers in the country 
earnestly represented to the Legislature of Virginia, that, if the 
surveys were persisted in, the infant and defenceless settlements 
in Kentucky would be involved in all the horrors and calamities 
of an Indian war. Accordingly, at the October Session of 1784 
(Hening's Stats., Vol. 11, page 447), the Legislature authorized 
the Governor of Virginia to suspend, for such time as he may 
think the tranquillity of the government may require, the sur- 




COL. JOHN R. ALLEN. 



SKETCH OF VIRGINIA BOUNTY LAND SYSTEM. 169 

veying or taking possession of those lands that lie on the north- 
west side of the river Ohio, or below the mouth of the Tennessee 
River, and which have been reserved for the officers and soldiers 
of the Virginia Line, and the Illinois Regiment. In pursuance 
of this authority, the Governor of Virginia, on the 6th day of 
January, 1785, issued his proclamation suspending the surveys. 
Thus Virginia, by her own act, put it out of the power of her 
officers and soldiers, after the 6th of January, 1785, to locate 
their warrants. This inhibition by the State authority continued 
until the 10th of January, 1786, when the prohibition was con- 
tinued by the act of the General Government. 

At that date, the treaty of Hopewell was concluded between 
the United States and the Chickasaw Indians, guaranteeing to 
the Indians, as part of their habitation and hunting-ground, all 
the lands below the Tennessee River, and providing that if any 
citizen of the United States, or any person not being an Indian, 
shall attempt to settle on any of the lands thereby allotted to the 
Chickasaws to live and to hunt on, such person shall forfeit the 
protection of the United States of America, and the Chickasaws 
may punish him or not, as they please. 

The Treaty of Hopewell remained in force until 1818, when 
the Indian title was extinguished. This purchase from the 
Chickasaws was negotiated on the part of the United States by 
General Andrew Jackson and Governor Isaac Shelby. After 
that period Kentucky would not permit the location of military 
warrants to be made. 

At the December Session, 1810, of the General Assembly of 
Kentucky, an act, approved January 25, 1811, was passed "to 
Revive the Law allowing longer time for receiving Platts and 
Certificates into the Register's Office." Section 1 of this Act 
(Littell's Laws of Ky., Vol. 4, page 228, Chapter CCXL, and 
Morehead & Brown's Statute Law of Kentucky, Vol. II, page 
915), contained the following provisos, viz.: 

"PROVIDED, That no survey made, or to be made, by virtue 
of a land office treasury warrant, issued from the State of Vir- 
ginia, prohibited or not liable to be entered within the bounds 
claimed by the Cherokee Indians, or Tellico lands, or within the 
bounds claimed by the Chickasaw Indians, or within the bounds 
reserved and set apart for the officers and soldiers south of 
Green River, shall be returned to the register's office: PRO- 



170 SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 

VIDED, NEVERTHELESS, that any survey made by virtue of 
a legal entry, made prior to the first day of May, 1792, by virtue 
of a warrant or warrants, for military service in the revolutionary 
war with Great Britain, issued to one of the officers or soldiers, 
in the State or Continental line of the Virginia troops, said entry 
and survey having been made within the said bounds set apart 
for the officers and soldiers, south of Green River, except the 
lands south of the Tennessee River, claimed by the Chickasaw 
Indians, may be returned to the register's office, and patents may 
issue therefor as heretofore." 

This Act of 1811 was the last of the Kentucky Acts granting 
an extension of time for making and returning surveys, and it 
only gave time until March 1, 1812, and expressly forbade 
patents from being issued on any surveys made since Novem- 
ber 29, 1798, and not saved by the disabilities mentioned in the 
Act of that date. 

"From 1792 to 1800, that portion of Kentucky," says a former 
Auditor of the Commonwealth, "east of the high lands between 
the Tennessee and the Cumberland rivers, and reserved for the 
officers and soldiers of the Virginia State and Continental Lines, 
was not held in much estimation by the early land speculators and 
settlers, owing to the fact of the fear of Indian hostility, and 
likewise a belief that all the good lands on the rivers and creeks 
had been appropriated by the military claims, and the remainder 
thereof was poor and barren. Kentucky valued them thus: In 
1795, at $30 per 100 acres ; in 1796, at $40 per 100 acres ; and in 
1800, at $20 per 100 acres." 

Owing to all these difficulties, military warrants in vast 
numbers long remained unlocated, and Congress at. different 
times appropriated vast quantities of western lands to satisfy 
the demand, but so enormous was the quantity required, that 
up to 1844, it is said, 650,000 acres of warrants still remained 
unsatisfied and unlocated. 

In addition to the liberal provision made by Virginia for 
endowing her veteran troops with lands, she also, very early in 
the war, enacted legislation looking to the retirement of her 
troops at the close of hostilities on half-pay during life. Being 
unable, however, to redeem the pledges given in these statutes, 
those who claimed under them proceeded to enforce their claims 
by suit in the State Courts of Virginia and, as shown below, 



SKETCH OF VIRGINIA BOUNTY LAND SYSTEM. 171 

Congress, by appropriate legislation, afterwards undertook to 
satisfy these judgments. We give herewith a brief synopsis of all 
this legislation. 

Virginia Half-pay During Life. 

Act of May Session, 1779. 
(Hening's Stats., Vol. 10, page 25.) 

BE IT ENACTED, That all general officers of the army, be- 
ing citizens of this Commonwealth, and all field-officers, cap- 
tains, and subalterns, commanding, or who shall command in 
the battalions of this Commonwealth, on Continental establish- 
ment, or serving in the battalions raised for the immediate de- 
fence of this State, or for the defence of the United States ; and 
all chaplains, physicians, surgeons, and surgeons' mates, ap- 
pointed to the said battalions, or any of them, being, citizens of 
this Commonwealth, and not being in the service of Georgia or 
of any other State, provided Congress do not make some tanta^- 
mount provision for them, who shall serve henceforward, or 
from the time of their being commissioned, until the end of the 
war; and all such officers who have or shall become supernu- 
merary on the reduction of any of the said battalions, and shall 
again enter into the said service, if required so to do, in the same 
or any higher rank, and continue therein until the end of the 
war, shall be entitled to half-pay during life, to commence from 
the determination of their command or service. 

Act of November Session^ 1781. 
(Hening's Stats., Vol. 10, page 467.) 

BE IT ENACTED, That the officers and seamen of the 
navy of this State, as they stand arranged by a late regulation, 
shall be entitled to the same advantages as the officers belonging 
to this State in the land service, agreeable to their respective 
ranks. 

The officers of Virginia, under the foregoing acts, prosecuted 
their claims for half-pay to judgment in the courts of the State, 
and Congress assumed the payment of those judgments, etc., by 
the following 



172 SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 

Act, Approved July 5, 1832. 

SEC. 1. BE IT ENACTED BY THE SENATE AND 
HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES OF THE UNITED 
STATES OF AMERICA, IN CONGRESS ASSEMBLED, 
That the proper accounting officers of the Treasury do liquidate 
and pay the accounts of the Commonwealth of Virginia against 
the United States, for payments to the officers commanding in the 
Virginia Line in the War of the Revolution, on account of the 
half-pay for life promised the officers aforesaid by that Common- 
wealth, amounting to the sum of one hundred and thirty-nine 
thousand, five hundred and forty-three dollars and sixty cents. 

Sec. 2. AND BE IT FURTHER ENACTED, That the 
Secretary of the Treasury be, and he is hereby, required and 
directed to pay to the State of Virginia the amount of the judg- 
ments which have been rendered against the said State for and 
on account of the promise contained in an act passed by the 
General Assembly of the State of Virginia, in the month of May, 
A. D. 1779, and in favor of the officers, or representatives of the 
officers, of the regiments and corps hereafter recited, and not 
exceeding in the whole the sum of two hundred and forty-one 
thousand, three hundred and forty-five dollars, to-wit: 

1. To the officers, or their legal representatives, of the regi- 
ment commanded by the late Colonel George Gibson, the amount 
of the judgments which they have obtained, and which are now 
unsatisfied. 

2. To the officers, or their legal representatives, of the regi- 
ment denominated the Second State Regiment, commanded, at 
times, by Colonels Brent and Dabney, the amount of the judg- 
ments which they have obtained, and which are now unsatisfied. 

3. To the officers, or their legal representatives, of the 
regiments of Colonels Clark and Crockett, and Captain Rogers' 
troop of cavalry, who were employed in the Illinois service, the 
amount of the judgments which they have obtained, and which 
are now unsatisfied. 

4. To the officers, or their legal representatives, serving in 
the regiment of State Artillery commanded by the late Colonel 
Marshall, and those serving in the State Garrison Regiment com- 
manded by Colonel Muter, and those serving in the State 
Cavalry, commanded by Major Nelson, the amount of the judg- 



SKETCH OF VIRGINIA BOUNTY LAND SYSTEM. 173 

merits which they have obtained, and which are now unsatisfied. 

5. To the officers, or their legal representatives, who served 
in the navy of Virginia during the late war of the Revolution, 
the amount of the judgments which they have obtained, and 
which are now unsatisfied. 

Sec. 3. AND BE IT FURTHER ENACTED, That the 
Secretary of the Treasury be, and he is hereby, directed and re- 
quired to adjust and settle those claims for half -pay of the of- 
ficers of the aforesaid regiments and corps, which have not been 
paid or prosecuted to judgment against the State of Virginia, and 
for which said State would be bound on the principles of the 
half-pay cases already decided in the Supreme Court of Appeals 
of said State; which several sums of money herein directed to 
be settled or paid, shall be paid out of any money in the treasury 
not otherwise appropriated by law. 

On the 12th of August, 1848, Congress appropriated a further 
sum of $81,273.17, for the payment of these Virginia half-pay 
claims, and made it the duty of the agent of the State to first 
deposit authenticated copies of the acts or judgments under 
which the money was paid by the State of Virginia. 

As no attempt has been made to incorporate in this volume 
any list of Revolutionary Pensioners, it has not been thought 
necessary to say anything about the State or National Pension 
Laws having to do with the Revolution. There was, of course, 
very extensive and cumulative legislation by the National Govern- 
ment on this subject. Moreover, it is estimated by Captain 
Anderson C. Quisenberry that of the Revolutionary soldiers pen- 
sioned by the National Government "more than three thousand 
were Kentuckians." To this statement. Captain Quisenberry, one 
of the most eminent and reliable authorities on Kentucky history, 
adds: 

"Taking into consideration the great number of soldiers who 
had not served long enough to become entitled to a pension, or 
who refused ever to apply for one, or who died before one be- 
came available, it is apparent that there must have been in Ken- 
tucky, first and last, at a moderate estimation, at least three 
Revolutionary soldiers who never got a pension for every one 
who did. This would make an aggregate of twelve thousand of 
those old heroes who became citizens of the State. Fifteen thou- 
sand would probably come nearer the actual fact. They now 



174 SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 

have many thousands of descendants who are citizens of the 
State. In addition to these are thousands of others, descendants 
of Revolutionary soldiers, who have moved into the State during 
the last one hundred and thirty-six years, whose Revolutionary 
ancestors never were citizens of Kentucky. So, as has already 
been stated, there are probably more descendants of Revolution- 
ary soldiers in Kentucky, in proportion to population, than in 
any other State in the Union." 

Just how the Military Land Warrants catalogued here hapi- 
pened to come into the possession of the State Land Office of 
Kentucky may be best explained by subjoining the legislation 
bearing upon that subject. 

Under the "Act concerning the erection of the District of 
Kentucky into an Independent State," passed by the Virginia 
Assembly on the 18th of December, 1789 (Hening's Stats., Vol. 
13, page 17), and commonly known as the "Compact with Vir- 
ginia," which was accepted by the Ninth Kentucky Convention 
held at Danville on July 26, 1790, and in pursuance of the Act 
of Congress of February 4, 1791, providing for the admission 
of Kentucky into the Union, Kentucky became a separate and 
independent commonwealth and, as such, a constitutent member 
of the United States of America, on June 1, 1792. In Sections 
9 and 10 of the Compact with Virginia, it is provided as follows : 

9. "That no grant of land, or land warrant to be issued 
by the proposed State, shall interfere with any warrant here- 
tofore issued from the land oifice of Virginia, which shall be 
located on land within the said district, now liable thereto, on or 
before the first day of September one thousand seven hundred 
and ninety-one. 

10. "That the unlocated lands within the said district, which 
stand appropriated to individuals or description of individuals, 
by the laws of this commonwealth, for military or other services, 
shall be exempted from the disposition of the proposed State, and 
shall remain subject to be disposed of by the Commonwealth of 
Virginia, according to such appropriation, until the first day of 
May one thousand seven hundred and ninety-two, and no longer : 
thereafter the residue of all lands remaining within the limits of 
the said district, shall be subject to the disposition of the pro- 
posed State." 



SKETCH OF VIRGINIA BOUNTY LAND SYSTEM. 175 

At the very first session of the General Assembly of Ken- 
tucky, held in the town of Lexington in the month of June, 1792, 
an Act establishing a Land Office and providing for the ap- 
pointment of a Register thereof, was adopted. This Act, which 
was approved June 27th, 1792, and appears as Chapter XI, of 
Littell's Laws of Kentucky, Vol. 1, page 75, provides, in Section 
2 thereof, as follows : 

Sec. 2. "BE IT FURTHER ENACTED, That all records 
(or copies thereof as the case may be) of patents or grants for 
lands heretofore issued, with all papers and documents relating 
thereto, and certificates of surveys of lands now in the Virginia 
register's office and not patented, shall when obtained, be re- 
moved and lodged in the said office for their safe-keeping; and 
all future grants of lands shall issue from the said office in the 
manner and form heretofore issued from the register's office of 
Virginia, all certificates of surveys which have been made or here- 
after may be made and recorded in the surveyor's office, shall be 
returned to said register's office, in order that grants may issue 
thereon in like manner as heretofore directed. And the said 
office shall be kept where the general assembly hold their ses- 
sion." 

At the second session of the Kentucky General Assembly, 
held in Lexington, in the months of November and December, 
1792, an Act concerning Surveyors and the Register of the 
Land Office, was passed and approved December 22, 1792. Sec- 
tions 3 and 5 of this Act, which appears as Chapter LXXVIII, 
of Littell's Laws, Vol. 1, page 165, read as follows: 

Sec. 3. "AND BE IT FURTHER ENACTED, That every 
entry of land made on any military or treasury warrant, or which 
shall be made until otherwise directed by law since the first day 
of May last, which is in the year one thousand seven hundred 
and ninety-two, and every survey made on any such entry, or 
grant that may issue for land by virtue of any survey made on 
such entry, is hereby declared null and void. 

Sec. 5. "The governor is requested to appoint two fit persons 
to examine the surveyor's office for the Virginia State and Con- 
tinental lines, and report to the next assembly the quantity of 
land entered in the reserved military boundary in this State 
before the first day of May last; and the persons so appointed 



176 SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 

shall be made a reasonable compensation for their services, and 
to cause this act to be made known throughout this State." 

The next piece of legislation which we find relating to this 
subject is the following Act passed by the General Assembly of 
Virginia on November 11, 1793, and the original of which is 
found in Volume 1, pages 234-5 and Chapter 16 of Shepherd's 
Statutes at Large of Virginia, same being a continuation of 
Hening's Statutes. This Act is as follows : 

"An Act to Authorize the Register of the Land Office to deliver 
the Original Title Papers, respecting Lands in the State of 
Kentucky. 

"L BE IT ENACTED, That the register of the land office 
deliver to any person or persons whom the executive of this State 
shall certify to him to be officially appointed by the State of 
Kentucky, all original papers now being in the land office, re- 
specting the titles of lands within the said State. 

"2. And be it further enacted. That any person or persons 
who may be appointed by the State of Kentucky, shall have free 
access to the records of the land office and to the commissioner's 
books, and be at full liberty, at the expense of the said State, to 
make a fair copy or copies of all records that relate to the title 
for lands within the said State, and of the said commissioner's 
books, which copy or copies shall be certified and subscribed by 
the register of the land office, who shall thereunto affix his seal 
of office: Provided, That the State of Kentucky shall be at no 
expense for the register's certifying and examining the same. 

"3. This act shall commence and be in force from and after 
the passing thereof." 

The first Act adopted by the General Assembly of Kentucky 
on the same subject was an Act approved February 27, 1797, 
which appears as a part of the Session Acts of the February Ses- 
sion, 1797, and which will be found in Littell's Laws of Kentucky, 
Vol. 1, page 642, Chapter CCCV. This Act is as follows: 

"An Act concerning the Original Title Papers of Land in this 
State remaining in the Register's Office in the State of Vir- 
ginia. 

"BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY, 
That Edmund Thomas is hereby authorised and appointed to ap- 



SKETCH OF VIRGINIA BOUNTY LAND SYSTEM. 177 

ply to the Executive of the State of Virginia, for all the original 
papers in the Register's office of that State on which the titles 
to land in this State depend, or in any wise relating thereto ; and 
where the originals can not be had, to take copies of all the war- 
rants, plats and certificates; and also of all patents that have 
been issued for lands lying in this State, and enter the same in 
well-bound books to be provided by him for that purpose. And 
the said Edmund Thomas is hereby authorised and empowered 
to demand and receive from the Register of the Land Office in 
the State of Virginia, all monies by him received on plats and 
certificates for which the patents have not issued, together with 
a list of their names, and the several sums paid by them as well 
on lands whereon the patents have not been issued as otherwise ; 
and shall pay and account for the same to the treasurer of this 
State on oath, and lodge the said list with the Register. The 
said Edmund Thomas shall secure all the books and papers that 
he is hereby directed to receive from the State of Virginia, in 
sufficient trunks, and transport the same to this State, and lodge 
them in the Register's office, and take the Register's receipt 
therefor. 

"The said Edmund Thomas shall enter into bond with sufficient 
security, to the Governor of this State, for the time being, in the 
penalty of two thousand pounds, for the due and faithful per- 
formance of the duties that are enjoined him by this act, within 
ten months from the passage of this act. And the said Edmund 
Thomas shall be furnished with the sum of one thousand dollars 
out of the public treasury, to enable him to obtain and bring the 
said papers to this State ; and he shall be entitled to a compensa"- 
tion for his services when performed. 

"The auditor shall grant a warrant to the said Edmund Thomas 
for the amount of the sum allowed by this act ; and the treasurer, 
upon the said warrant being produced to him, shall pay the same." 

Supplementing the above enactment, a subsequent Act, adopted 

by the General Assembly of Kentucky, was approved February 

3, 1798, and same appears as a part of the Session Acts of the 

-January Session, 1798, and will be found in Littell's Laws of 

Kentucky, Vol. 2, page 181, Chapter XCVIIL 

This last Act is as follows : 



178 SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 

"An Act to amend an Act, entitled 'An Act concerning the original 
Title Papers of Land in this State, remaining in the Regis- 
ter's Office in the State of Virginia.' 

"WHEREAS unavoidable delays have prevented the Act 
passed at the February Session (1797), entitled 'An Act concern- 
ing the original Title Papers of Land in this State, remaining in 
the Register's Office in the State of Virginia,' from being carried 
into effect ; and from the great expence attending the execution 
of the said business, it is necessary that further provision be 
made for completing the same : 

"BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY, 
That Edmund Thomas, the agent for the State, shall have the fur- 
ther time of nine months to complete the business enjoined him, 
according to the above recited act, anything to the contrary not- 
withstanding ; and shall, moreover, be allowed the sum of three 
thousand dollars, in addition to the sum already received, for 
finally completing the business enjoined him by the act afore- 
said, one-half of which he is entitled to receive on his requesting 
the same, and the other half on his producing the governor's 
certificate of his having completed the business; and the auditor 
shall issue his warrant accordingly. 

"This act shall be in force from the passage thereof." 

To further authenticate the warrants, of which a digest is 
printed herein, we have published a fac simile of one of the 
original warrants, as same appear in the two manuscript volumes 
in the Land Office at Frankfort. This fac simile is of Warrant No. 
2012 for 1666 2/3 acres of land granted to Major-General Charles 
Scott in consideration of his services for his eighth year as a 
Brigadier in the Virginia Continental Line. This is the same 
General Scott who afterwards became Governor of Kentucky. 

We also had photographs made of the Certificates to each of 
the volumes in question and cuts of these photographs are in- 
cluded in the present publication. They not only authenticate 
our digest of the warrants but furnish interesting evidence of the 
manner in which Edmund Thomas, Esquire, the special agent for 
Kentucky, executed his important commission. The first of these 
Certificates, appended to the first volume of transcripts, reads as 
follows :

The second Certificate, appended to the second volume of 
transcripts, is like unto the first and reads as follows : 

"Virginia Land Office,

have been examined and found correct. 

GIVEN under by hand and the Seal of said Office this 23rd

(Seal) Wm. Price, Regr." 

The Virginia State Library has this year (1912) published a 
"Special Report of the Department of Archives and History for 
1911," which contains a Hst of about thirty-five thousand (35,000) 
names of "Revolutionary Soldiers of Virginia." Mr. Eckenrode, 



180 SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 

the Chief Archivist, draws some interesting conclusions from 
this partial completion of the stupendous task he has undertaken, 
namely, to supply full, connected and reliable data concerning 
all the forces, continental, state, militia and navy, furnished by 
Virginia in the Revolutionary War. 

"The number of men who served from Virginia in the 
Revolutionary War," says Mr. Eckenrode, "can never be ac- 
curately known for the lack of company and regimental rolls, 
but it is certain that a very large proportion of the able-bodied 
white male population was actually in service at some. time or 
other during the struggle. The lists of militia called into the 
field have not yet been found, if such lists exist, although thou- 
sands of men were ordered into service for short periods of time, 
especially in 1780 and 1781. 

"The principal sources for the names of soldiers of the Con- 
tinental and State lines are the lists of those serving in the two 
branches who received back pay due them after the war and the 
index of applications for land bounties made by soldiers who 
had served three years or more in any military capacity or by 
their heirs." 

"The militia records," he adds, "are exceedingly fragmen- 
tary. Strangely enough, the pay-rolls for the western depart- 
ment have been preserved, and it is probable that the names of 
few Kentucky militiamen have been lost, while the rolls for the 
eastern and much more thickly settled and civilized portion of 
the State have not been found. * * * -^^ estimate of the 
number of militia called into the field in the course of the war 
can be safely made at the present time." 

From this most valuable report it is learned that among the 
archives of the Virginia State Library are several hundred loose 
manuscript rolls of militia and regulars in the Illinois Depart- 
ment, and this collection is known as the "Illinois Papers." The 
pay-rolls have been formed into a separate collection designated 
as "Illinois Papers, D." "These pay-rolls," says Mr. Eckenrode, 
"contain practically all the names of the men serving in the 
western part of Virginia during the Revolutionary War." 

This will, doubtless, be good news to those Kentuckians of 
the present day who have long cherished the belief that the 
"Pioneer Commonwealth" deserved far more credit for the part 
she played during the Revolutionary struggle than is generally 



SKETCH OF VIRGINIA BOUNTY LAND SYSTEM. 181 

accorded her and that this fact would plainly appear with the 
production of the requisite "documentary evidence." Here it is 
at last. 

It will be understood, of course, that the Military Land War- 
rants, to be found in the State Land Office of Kentucky and of 
which a complete synoptical Catalogue is here for the first time 
published, do not constitute all of the land bounty warrants is- 
sued by the Commonwealth of Virginia. The total number was 
probably somewhere between seven and eight thousand, if not 
more. The list inserted here, as will be seen, contains but 4,627 
names, all told. 

The office of Register of the Land Office of Kentucky was 
created by Act of June 27, 1792 (Littell's Laws, Vol. 1, page 
75), and by an Act of March 11, 1898, this office was abolished 
and the work of the Land Office placed in charge of the Auditor 
of Public Accounts. (See Kentucky Statutes, Section 4001a.) 

That the records of the Land Office of the Commonwealth 
of Kentucky are of incalculable importance is evident, upon a 
moment's reflection, to every person, when the fact is recalled 
that the title to all lands in the State are based upon the original 
papers to be found in this office. 

Since the time that the territory embraced in the now State 
of Kentucky was only a county of Virginia down to the present 
time, the records have been kept in several systems known as the 
Virginia, Kentucky, Headright or South of Green River, Land 
Warrant, etc. 

Virginia Grants. 

The Commonwealth of Virginia issued from 1782 to 1792 
about ten thousand grants of lands within what is now the terri- 
tory of the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Quite a number of 
these grants were based upon warrants issued by the Common- 
wealth of Virginia in consideration of military services in the 
French and Indian war, and in the war of the Revolution. 

The grants under this system are recorded in sixteen books. 
The surveys upon which they were issued are recorded in eleven 
books. There are indexes to both grants and surveys. The 
original papers are in file boxes, labeled and indexed. 



182 SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 

Kentucky Grants. 

From 1793 to 1856, these grants were issued by the Com- 
monwealth of Kentucky, and are recorded in twenty books. In 
this system are to be found Military, Seminary or Academic, 
Treasury Warrant, and Pre-emption Grants, based upon War- 
rants and Surveys made, and issued by Virginia before Kentucky 
separated from that State. These twenty books are indexed. 
The original papers to said grants are in file boxes, properly 
labeled and indexed. 

Military Grants. 

These are grants that were given by the Commonwealth of 
Virginia to officers and soldiers for services performed during 
the Revolutionary War and were located upon what was known 
as the military or reserved line, the boundary of which was as 
follows: "Bounded by the Green River, and a southeast course 
from the head thereof to the Cumberland Mountains; with the 
said mountains to the Carolina (now Tennessee) line, with the 
Carolina (Tennessee) line to the Cherokee or Tennessee River, 
with the said river to the Ohio River, and with the Ohio to the 
said Green River," (Hening's Stats., Vol. 10, page 56). Some 
of these grants were located west of the Tennessee River, and 
were legalized by an Act of the Kentucky Legislature, which was 
approved December 26, 1820. (See Session Acts, 1820, pages 
197-200, Chap. CLV.) 

The Military Grants are recorded in the Virginia, Kentucky, 
and West of Tennessee River Systems. A cross-index of the 
Military Warrants shows 983 names of officers or soldiers whose 
warrants were assigned to other parties. 

For a fuller index and syllabus of these Land Office docu- 
ments, reference may be had to the useful "Report on the Ar- 
chives of the State of Kentucky," by Dr. Irene T. Myers, of Tran-

tion to the first Volume of Bibb's Kentucky Reports, written and 
published in the year 1815; also, Chapter IX, of "Kentucky 
Jurisprudence," by Lewis N. Dembitz, published in 1890, said 
chapter being entitled "The First Disposition of the Land," and 
Littell's Laws of Kentucky, Vol. 1, pages 385-464. Littell & 
Swigert's Digest of the Statute Law of Kentucky (1822), Vol. 
II, pages 712-733, Chapter CVII— gives the "Land Law of Vir- 
ginia, modified by Kentucky." This Virginia Land Law, com- 
mencing with the spring session of 1779, and terminating with 
the fall session of 1791, is to be found not only in Hening's 
Statutes at Large of -Virginia, but is reprinted in full in the 
first volume of Littell's Laws, pages 385-464. Much the greater 
part of it will also be found in the first volume of Bradford's 
Laws of Kentucky (1799), pages 291-342, Chapter XCVIII, 
under the title, "A collection of the acts or parts of acts of the 
Virginia Assembly concerning the Titles to Lands in this Com- 
monwealth," approved December 17, 1796. Toulmin's Digest 
also gives the same. In the Appendix to Volume III of Lit- 
tell's Laws, at pages 587-588, will be found reprinted the Vir- 
ginia Act of October, 1778, Chapter 33, entitled, "An Act to vest 
certain lands on the Ohio and Green Rivers, in fee simple, in 
Richard Henderson and Company, and their heirs." (See Hen- 
ing's Statutes, Vol. 9, page 571.) 

The following Index or Catalogue sets forth in tabulated 
form the contents of each one of the 4,627 Military Land War- 
rants granted by Virginia and of record in the Kentucky State 
Land Office at Frankfort. These warrants are entered, in the 
two manuscript volumes heretofore mentioned, three to each 
page. Most of them are unsigned, though some of the earlier 
ones and a few others here and there bear the copied signature 
of John Harvie, Register of the Land Office. The originals 
doubtless bore Harvie's official seal also but no seal or fac simile 
thereof is affixed to any of these copies. 

The substance of each warrant is given here under the fol- 
lowing headings, to-wit : (a) Number of Warrant, (b) Name of 
Officer or Soldier, (c) Number of Acres of Land Awarded, (d) 
Character of Service, whether as Private or Officer, and, if 
Officer, of What Grade, (e) Department of Service, under one 
or the other of the following designations:

are used inter-changeably for the same department or command. 
In only a few instances, as will be noticed, is the name given of 
the particular regiment to which the bounty claimant belonged. 
There is no express mention at all of any of the military com-

panics. No mere Minute-man or member of the Militia appears 
to have received any of these warrants. A great many, as will 
be observed, were granted for service in the Virginia State Navy. 
In one instance, that of Warrant No. 3753, to John Roots, for 
3,000 acres, the bounty appears to have been allowed by Lord 
Dunmore, and this action of the last royal governor of Virginia 
was approved and the warrant passed by the General Assembly 
of Virginia, on February 14, 1784, in favor of George Washing- 
ton, assignee of Roots. Of course, this grant was not made in 
consideration of services in the Revolutionary War. 

The next headings in the Catalogue cover (f) Length of 
Service, and (g) Date of Warrant. The arrangement of the 
names is alphabetical but only as to the initial of the last or 
surname of each bounty recipient. Warrant No. 1, for 100 acres, 
was issued August 8, 1782, to James Askew, a Private, who 
had served three years in the Continental Line. The last war- 
rant of the series. No. 4,627, for 1,333 1/3 acres, was issued 
October 29, 1793, to Henry Bedinger, a Captain in the Con- 
tinental Line, for his eighth year of service. Thus, the issuing 
of these warrants, first and last, covers a period of eleven years. 

As already explained, the Act of May, 1779, Chapter 13, 
Section 2 (Hening's Stats., Vol. 10, page 51), prescribes the 
evidence on which warrants for land bounties shall issue. Such 
memorials, if still preserved, will doubtless be found hid away 
among the ancient archives of Old Virginia, at the State Library 
or State Capitol in Richmond. This evidence, if now to be had, 
would most certainly prove of great interest and value and, that 
the character of the evidence may be known, we quote, for 
convenience, the provisions of the above-mentioned Section 2 
of the Act of May, 1779. Said Section reads as follows : 

"And Whereas a certain bounty in lands hath been engaged 
to the troops on continental establishment raised by the ordinances 
of convention or the laws of this Commonwealth, and to the troops 
upon Virginia establishment: BE IT ENACTED, That the 
oiificers and soldiers of the said troops, as well as the officers and 
soldiers to whom a bounty in lands may, or shall be hereafter 
allowed by any law of this Commonwealth, shall be entitled to 
the quantity of waste or unappropriated lands respectively en- 
gaged to them by such laws, a commissioned officer or his heirs, 
upon certificate from any general officer of the Virginia line, or 



186 SONS OP THE REVOLUTION. 

the commanding officer of the troops on the Virginia establish- 
ment as the case may be, and a non-commissioned officer or 
soldier, or his heirs, upon certificate from the colonel or com- 
manding officer of the regiment, or corps to which they re- 
spectively belonged, that such officer or soldier hath served the 
time required by law, or hath been slain or died in the service, 
distinguishing particularly the time such officer or soldier hath 
served, and in what regiment or corps such service hath been 
performed, or death happened; and upon making proof before 
any court of record within this Commonwealth by the person's 
own oath, or other satisfactory evidence of the truth and authen- 
ticity of the said certificate, and that the party had never before 
proved or claimed his right to land for the service therein men- 
tioned, which proof the clerk of the court before whom it shall 
be made, is hereby empowered and required to endorse and cer- 
tify upon the original certificate, making an entry or minute 
thereof in his order book and recording the same; and every 
county court shall annually, in the month of October, send to 
the register's office, a list of all certificates granted by their re- 
spective county courts upon any of the before mentioned rights, 
there to be recorded." 

By Act of May, 1782, Chapter 47, Section 8, it was declared 
that land bounty warrants should be granted, upon producing to 
the Register a certificate from the Commissioner of War, and not 
otherwise. (See Hening's Stats., Vol. 11, pages 83-84.) But 
by Act of October, 1782, Chapter 14, the office of Commissioner 
of War was abolished and the duties transferred to the Executive. 
(Hening's Stats., Vol. 11, page 133.) From and after that 
period, certificates for land bounties were uniformly issued by 
orders of the Governor and Council or Executive Department 
of the Commonwealth, upon the production before the Executive 
of satisfactory evidence by the party claiming the bounty that he 
was entitled thereto. This practice subsequently received ex- 
press legislative sanction in Chapter 12 of the Virginia Acts of 
1815. 

Occasionally warrants were issued "agreeable to a Resolution 
of the General Assembly," of a specified date. These resolu- 
tions are not published in Hening's Statutes at Large of Vir- 
ginia and, to find them, one must resort to the original Session 
Acts or to the Journals of the General Assembly. In the case 



SKETCH OF VIRGINIA BOUNTY LAND SYSTEM. 187 

of Major-General Baron Frederick William Steuben, we find a 
bounty of 15,000 acres, "in consideration of his military services, 
granted to him by a particular Act of Assembly, agreeably to a 
Certificate from himself, which is received into the Land Office." 
The Act in question recites — "As a testimony of the high sense 
the General Assembly of Virginia entertain of the important serv- 
ices rendered the United States by the Honourable Major-General 
Baron Steuben, It is further enacted. That fifteen thousand acres 
of land be granted to the said Major-General Baron Steuben, in 
like manner as is hereinbefore granted to other Major-generals." 
(See Acts of October, 1780, Chapter 27, Section 5; Hening's 
Stats., Vol. 10, page 375.) 

For certified copies of any of the warrants here catalogued, 
address the Auditor of Public Accounts of Kentucky, or the 
Clerk of the Land Office, care of State Capitol, Frankfort, Ken- 
tucky, enclosing fifty cents (50c), the statutory fee, for each copy 
desired. 



CHIEF EXECUTIVES OF VIRGINIA, 

From the Commencement of the Revolution, in 1775, to 

THE Establishment of Kentucky as an Independent 

Commonwealth, on June 1, 1792. 



John Murray, Earl of Dunmore, was the last Royal Governor 
of Virginia. He served as Governor from his accession on 
March 31, 1772, to the outbreak of the Revolution in 1775, 
when he abandoned his office and left the country. 

From the abdication of Lord Dunmore to the formal erec- 
tion of Virginia into an independent and sovereign State, in June, 
1776, there was an "Interregnum," during which the executive 
functions were exercised provisionally by the Presidents, for the 
time being, of the successive Virginia Conventions. 

Peyton Randolph was President of the Conventions of March 
and July, 1775, but having died before the next Convention, held 
in December, Edmund Pendleton was appointed his successor. 



188 SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 

Edmund Pendleton was President of the Conventions of 
December, 1775, and May, 1776, at which last, the Constitution 
of Virginia being adopted, the powers of the Convention ceased. 

Patrick Henry was elected the first Governor of Virginia, 
under the Constitution, on the 29th of June, 1776, the same day 
on which the Constitution was adopted, and he continued as 
Governor until the latter end of the May Session, 1779, of the 
Virginia Assembly. 

Thomas Jeiferson was elected Governor June 1, 1779, and 
served as such until June, 1781, when he resigned. 

Thomas Nelson, Junior, was elected Governor June 12, 1781, 
and continued as such until November 30, 1781, when he re- 
signed. 

Benjamin Harrison was elected Governor November 30, 1781, 
and served until November 29, 1784. 

Patrick Henry was elected, a second time. Governor of 
Virginia, in DecemT)er, 1784, and held the office until December, 
1786. 

Edmund Randolph was elected Governor in December, 1786, 
and continued as such until December, 1788. 

Beverley Randolph was elected Governor in December, 1788, 
and served as such until December, 1791. 

Henry Lee ("Light-Horse Harry") was elected Governor 
in December, 1791, and held the office until December, 1794. It 
was Governor Henry Lee, the father of General Robert E. Lee, 
who pronounced Washington, "First in war, first in peace, and 
first in the hearts of his countrymen."

CERTIFICATE No. 2, VIRGINIA MILITARY WARRANTS. 



French and Indian War Military Warrants, 

Commonly Galled "Proclamation 

Warrants." 



As many large tracts of land in Central Kentucky were 
entered, surveyed and patented on Warrants granted under the 
King's Proclamation of October 7, 1763, for military services 
in the French and Indian War (1754-1763), a few brief ex- 
tracts from that Proclamation may be of interest in this connec- 
tion. These Military Surveys, it will, of course, be noted, are 
not to be confounded with the military land grants for services 
in the Revolutionary War. Very few of the latter were ever 
located in any part of the Blue Grass Region of Kentucky. 

So Much of the King's Proclamation of 1763, as Relates 
TO THE Titles to Land in Kentucky. 

"And whereas we are desirous, upon all occasions, to testify 
our royal sense and approbaition of the conduct and bravery of 
the officers and soldiers of our armies, and to reward the same, 
we do hereby command and empower our governors of the said 
three new colonies, and all other our governors of our said 
provinces on the continent of North America, to grant without 
fee or reward, to such reduced officers as have served in North 
America during the late war, and to such private soldiers as have 
been, or shall be disbanded in America, and are actually residing 
there, and shall personally apply for the same, the following 
quantities of lands, subject at the expiration of ten years, to 
the same quitrents as other lands are subject to in the province 
within which they are granted, as also subject to the same con- 
ditions of cultivation and improvement, viz. : 

"To every person having the rank of a field officer, five thou- 
sand acres; to every captain, three thousand acres; to every 
subaltern or staff officer, two thousand acres ; to every non-com- 
missioned officer, two hundred acres; to every private man fifty 
acres. 

(273) 



274 SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 

"We do likewise authorize and require the governors and 
commanders in chief of all our said colonies upon the continent 
of North America, to grant the like quantities of land, and upon 
the same conditions, to such reduced officers of our navy, of 
like rank as served on board our ships of war in North America 
at the times of the reduction of Louisbourg and Quebec in the 
late war, and who shall personally apply to our respective gover- 
nors for such grants. 

"And whereas it is just and reasonable, and essential to our 
interest, and the security of our colonies, that the several nations 
or tribes of Indians with whom we are connected, and who live 
under our protection, should not be molested or disturbed in the 
possession of such parts of our dominions and territories as, not 
having been ceded to, or purchased by us, are reserved to them, 
or any of them, as their hunting grounds, we do therefore, with 
the advice of our privy council, declare Lt to be our royal will 
and pleasure that no governor, or commander-in-chief in any of 
our colonies of Quebec, East Florida, or West Florida, do pre- 
sume, upon any pretence whatever, to grant warrants of survey, 
or pass any patents, for lands beyond the bounds of their re- 
spective governments, as described in their commissions ; as also 
that no governor, or commander-in-chief, in any of our other 
colonies or plantations in America, do presume, for the present, 
and until our future pleasure be known, to grant warrants of 
survey or pass patents for any lands beyond the heads or sources 
of any of the rivers, which fall into the Atlantic ocean from the 
west and northwest, or upon any lands whatever, which, not 
having been ceded to, or purchased by us, as aforesaid, are re- 
served to the said Indians or any of them. 

"And we do further declare it to be our royal will and pleas- 
ure, for the present, as aforesaid, to reserve under our sover- 
eignty, protection, and dominion, for the use of the said Indians, 
all the lands and territories not included within the limits of our 
said three new governments, or within the limits of the territory 
granted to the Hudson's Bay Company, as also all the lands 
and territories lying to the westward of the sources of the rivers 
which fall into the sea from the west and northwest, as aforesaid ; 
and we do hereby strictly forbid, on pain of our displeasure, all 
our loving subjects from making any purchases or settlements 



BOONE. 275 

whatever, or taking possession of any of the lands above re- 
served, without our special leave and license for that purpose 
first obtained. 

"And we do further strictly enjoin and require all persons 
whatever, who have either wilfully or inadvertently seated them- 
selves upon any lands within the countries above described, or 
upon any other lands, which not having been ceded to, or pur- 
chased by us, are still reserved to the said Indians, as afore- 
said, forthwith to remove themselves from such settlements."

A dirge for the brave old pioneer ! 

Knight-errant of the wood! 
Calmly beneath the green sod here, 

He rests from field and flood; 
The war-whoop and the panther's screams 

No more his soul shall rouse, 
For well the aged hunter dreams 

Beside his good old spouse. 

A dirge for the brave old pioneer ! 

Hushed now his rifle's peal — 
The dews of many a vanish'd year 

Are on his rusted steel; 
His horn and pouch lie moldering 

Upon the cabin door — 
The elk rests by the salted spring, 

Nor flees the fierce wild boar. 

A dirge for the brave old pioneer ! 

Old Druid of the West! 
His offering was the fleet wild deer, 

His shrine the mountain's crest. 
Within his wildwood temple's space 

An empire's towers nod, 
Where erst, alone of all his race, 

He knelt to nature's God. 



276 SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 



A dirge for the brave old pioneer ! 

Columbus of the land! 
Who guided freedom's proud career 

Beyond the conquer'd strand ; 
And gave her pilgrim sons a home 

No monarch's step profanes, 
Free as the chainless winds that roam 

Upon its boundless plains. 

A dirge for the brave old pioneer ! 

The muffled drum resound! 
A warrior is slumb'rdng here 

Beneath his battle ground. 
For not alone with beast of prey 

The bloody strife he waged, 
Foremost where'er the deadly fray 

Of savage combat raged. 

A dirge for the brave old pioneer! 

A dirge for his old spouse ! 
For her who blest his forest cheer, 

And kept his birchen house. 
Now soundly by her chieftain may 

The brave old dame sleep on, 
The red man's step is far away, 

The wolf's dread howl is gone. 

A dirge for the brave old pioneer! 

His pilgrimage is done; 
He hunts no more the grizzly bear 

About the setting sun. 
Weary at last of chase and life 

He laid him here to rest, 
Nor recks he now what sport or strife 

Would tempt him farther West. 

A dirge for the brave old pioneer ! 

The patriarch of his tribe ! 
He sleeps, no pompous pile marks where, 

No lines his deeds describe. 
They raised no stone above him here. 

Nor carved his deathless name — 
An Empire is his sepulcher, 

His epitaph is Fame. 

—O'Hara.

Society of the Cincinnati. 



Because of the resemblance of the Society of Sons of the 
Revolution to the Society of the Cincinnati, after which it was 
patterned; and because of the fact that a considerable number 
of the charter members of the New York, Pennsylvania, and 
District of Columbia Societies, by which our General Society 
was formed, were also members of the Cincinnati, it has been 
thought proper to incorporate into this Year Book a condensed 
sketch of the Cincinnati and a list of the original members of 
this society (as far as their names have been preserved) in seven 
of the thirteen original States of the Union. 

This institution, moreover, is so intimately connected with 
affairs at the close of the Revolution, and with preparations for 
the return of the country to the pursuits of peace, after emerging 
from the conflicts of an eight years' war, that some account of 
it, in this connection will not be out of place. 

It has been beautifully said that "Providence moves through 
time as the gods of Homer through space — it takes one step and 
ages have rolled away;'' and though it has rolled twenty-three 
centuries between the illustrious farmer of Rome and our own 
immortal farmer of Mount Vernon, yet, in the night-march of 
the former to the aid of the despairing army of Minutius, and in 
that of the latter, over the storm-lashed and icy billows of the 
Delaware, on the Hessian encampment at Trenton, the same 
"Arcturus, Orion, Pleiades, and the chambers of the South," 
known also in the days of the patient man of Uz, still perpetuated 
by the same moving Providence, enlightened both armies; and 
the gaze of both generals has rested upon the same constellations, 
so that time, by similitude of circumstances and character, seems 
to have been so far annihilated as to bring the two to stand conP 
temporaneously on the great platform of human liberty, and to a 
personal recognition of each other in the great Society of Peace, 
bearing the name of the one and presided over by the other, whose 
valedictory proclaimed, that, "Having finished the work assigned 
me, I retire from the great theatre of action, and bidding an af- 

(277)

fectionate farewell to this august body, under whose orders I 
have so long acted, I here offer my commission, and take leave 
of all the public employments of life" — and of whom it was 
said, when the "clods of the valley" were about to cover all of 
him that was mortal : "Our virtuous Chief, mindful only of the 
common good, in a moment of tempting personal aggrandizement, 
hushed the discontents of growing sedition; and, surrendering 
his power into the hands from which he had received it, con- 
verted his sword into a ploughshare, teaching an admiring world 
that to be truly great, you must be truly good." 

In an address delivered by Hon. Hamilton Fish, President- 
General of the Cincinnati, on March 22, 1889, he said : 

"I regard the Society 'Sons of the Revolution' as a younger 
brother of the Cincinnati, laboring to perpetuate the same princi- 
ples and inheriting the same memories which belonged to the 
Cincinnati." 

The Society of the Cincinnati was founded May 13, 1783, at 
Temple Hill, near New Windsor, New York, at the last canton- 
ment of the American Army, five years prior to the adoption of 
the Constitution of the United States, by Washington, Knox, 
Steuben, and other officers of the Revolutionary War. 

The Institution of the Society adopted at the cantonment 
of the American Army, on the Hudson River, May 13, 1783, 
contained the following provisions, viz. : 

"It having pleased the Supreme Governor of the universe, in 
the disposition of human aflfairs, to cause the separation of the 
colonies of North America from the domination of Great Britain, 
and, after a bloody conflict of eight years, to establish them free, 
independent and sovereign states, connected by alliances, founded 
on reciprocal advantages, with some of the greatest princes and 
powers of the earth: 

"To perpetuate, therefore, as well the remembrance of this 
vast event, as the mutual friendships which have been formed 
under the pressure of common danger, and in many instances 
cemented by the blood of the parties, the officers of the American 
Army do, hereby, in the most solemn manner, associate, consti- 
tute and combine themselves into one society of friends, to en- 
dure as long as they shall endure, or any of their eldest male 
posterity, and in failure thereof, the collateral branches, who 



SOCIETY OF THE CINCINNATI. 279 

may be judged worthy of becoming its supporters and members." 

"The State Society will regulate everything respecting it- 
self and the societies of the districts, consistent with the general 
maxims of the Cincinnati." 
************* 

"All the officers of the American army, as well those who 
have resigned with honor, after three years' service in the 
capacity of officers, or who have been deranged by the resolu- 
tions of Congress, upon the several reforms of the army, as those 
who shall have continued to the end of the war, have the right to 
become parties to this institution ; * * * and as a testimony 
of affection to the memory and the offspring of such officers as 
have died in the service, their eldest male branches shall have 
the same right of becoming members, as the children of the ac- 
tual members of the Society." 

The first meeting was presided over by Baron Steuben at his 
headquarters at Fishkill-on-the-Hudson. General Washington 
was its first president, and Major-General Knox, secretary. Alex- 
ander Hamilton succeeded Washington as president, at which 
time the membership included representatives from the thirteen 
original States. Membership is limited to the eldest male pos- 
terity of the original members, and, in case of the extinction of 
the direct line, to the next in order of descent, if found worthy. 
In some State societies, descendants in the female line are admis- 
sible when the male line is extinct. It is worth noting that the 
city of Cincinnati received its name from prominent members of 
the Society of the Cincinnati, who were respectively governor 
and secretary of the Northwestern Territory. Members of this 
society, in whose veins runs the blood of officers who took part 
in the struggle for the independence of the colonies, meet an- 
nually to revive the memories and the glories of the War of the 
Revolution. 

In its earlier years the Society was strongly antagonized on 
account of its plan of hereditary membership, and, as believed, 
its exclusive, aristocratic and anti-republican tendencies, and its 
establishment met with a most bitter opposition throughout the 
young nation. By .Samuel and John Adams, Jefferson, Gerry, 
Jay, Franklin, and many others, distinguished in the civil depart- 



280 SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 

ments of the government, it was denounced as an order of 
chivalry, making rapid strides towards an hereditary military 
nobility, sowing the seeds of vanity, ambition, corruption, discord 
and sedition, "Which will change the form of our government 
from the best to the worst in the world." 

This feeling of opposition has long since passed away, and 
the Society of the Cincinnati remains the animating spirit and 
venerable original of many other military, ancestral and patriotic 
orders which, like the Sons of the Revolution, perpetuate the 
memories, sacrifices, and associations of American wars. 

Benjamin Franklin, who, at first, took alarm at what he 
considered the aristocratic pretensions of the new Society, upon 
fuller information on the subject, so far withdrew his opposition, 
as to accept membership in the Pennsylvania Society. 

We dare say if Jefferson and those who, like him, were ap- 
prehensive that the Cincinnati might prove subversive of contitu- 
tionel liberty and republican principles, were alive to-day and 
could see the crying need for such organizations to keep alive 
the spirit of patriotism, love of country, and the national ideals, 
they would give it all possible encouragement and support .and 
be as zealous in its defence as they were formerly severe in its 
condemnation. None but the ignorant and prejudiced can to- 
day deny that there is a very real and urgent need for the con- 
serving influence of societies such as these. The rise of the 
vulgar rich, the danger of industrial domination, the menace of 
foreign immigration, the vicious tendencies of the tyrannical 
trusts, the corrupt combinations between politics and business, 
and other evils which threaten our life as a free and enlightened 
nation, all combine to. create an imperative demand for the reso- 
lute maintenance of our inherited rights, and this, the history 
of our country and all experience demonstrates can best be ac- 
complished thro' patriotic organizations such as the Cincinnati, 
Sons of the Revolution, and Daughters of the American Revolu- 
tion. The economic and social upheaval throughout the land calls 
for the diligent exercise of the highest qualities of patriotism 
and public-spirited service and the vexed problems which our 
national life presents will admit of no evasion or postponement. 
By every impulse of tradition and training the Cincinnati and 
Sons of the Revolution are best qualified and equipped to combat 




GEO. K. GRAVES.

these imminent evils and to solve these intricate and troublesome 
problems. But the "joy of conflict" is as compelling to-day — the 
sweet satisfaction of vanquishing, in fair fight, foemen worthy 
of one's steel, is as alluring to-day in the arena of politics, busi- 
ness, and society, as ever tempted our soldier sires to the field 
of battle. Hence, there is no need of apology for these Revolu- 
tionary organizations. The signs and tendencies of the times are 
a sufficient reason and their own honorable history is a sufficient 
justification for their continued existence. 

Cantonment of the American Army 
On Hudson's River, . . . 10th May, 1783. 

Proposals for establishing a Society, upon Principles therein 
mentioned, whose Members shall be Officers of the American 
Army, having been communicated to the several Regiments of 
the respective Lines, they appointed an Officer from each, who, 
in conjunction with the General Officers, should take the same 
into Consideration, at their Meeting this Day, at which the Honor- 
able Major-General Baron de Steuben, the senior Officer present, 
was pleased to preside. 

The Proposals being read, fully considered. Paragraph by 
Paragraph, and the Amendments agreed to, Major-General Knox, 
Brigadier-General Hand, Brigadier-General Huntington, and 
Captain Shaw were chosen to revise the same, and prepare a 
copy to be laid before this Assembly, at their next Meeting, to be 
holden at Major-General Baron de Steuben's Quarters, on 
Tuesday the 13th instant. 

Tuesday, 13th, May, 1783. 
The Representatives of the American Army being assembled, 
agreeably to Adjournment, the Plan for establishing a Society, 
whereof the Officers of the American Army are to be Members, 
is accepted, and is as follows, viz. : 

The Institution of the Society of the Cincinnati, Agreed 

Upon at the "Cantonment of the American Army, 

ON Hudson River, May 13, 1783." 

It having pleased the Supreme Governor of the Universe, in 
the disposition of human affairs, to cause the separation of the 



282 SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 

Colonies of North America from the domination of Great 
Britain, and after a bloody conflict of eight years, to establish 
them free, independent, and sovereign States, connected, by al- 
liances founded on reciprocal advantages, with some of the 
greatest princes and powers of the earth. 

To perpetuate, therefore, as well the remembrance of this 
vast event, as the mutual friendships which have been formed 
under the pressure of common danger, and in many instances 
cemented by the blood of the parties, the officers of the American 
army do hereby, in the most solemn manner, associate, consti- 
tute, and combine themselves into one SOCIETY OF FRIENDS, 
to endure as long as they shall endure, or any of their eldest male 
posterity, and in failure thereof, the collateral branches, who may 
be judged worthy of becoming its supporters and members. 

The officers of the American army, having generally been 
taken from the citizens of America, possess high veneration for 
the character of that illustrious Roman, LUCIUS QUINTUS 
CINCINNATUS ; and being resolved to follow his example, by 
returning to their citizenship, they think they may, with propriety, 
denominate themselves THE SOCIETY OF THE CINCIN- 
NATI. 

The following principles shall be immutable, and form the 
basis of the Society of the Cincinnati : 

An incessant attention to preserve inviolate those exalted 
rights and liberties of human nature, for which they have fought 
and bled, and without which the high rank of a rational being 
is a curse instead of a blessing. 

An unalterable determination to promote and cherish, between 
the respective States, that union and national honor so essentially 
necessary to their happiness, and the future dignity of the Ameri- 
can empire. 

To render permanent the cordial affection subsisting among 
the officers. This spirit will dictate brotherly kindness in all 
things, and particularly extend to the most substantial acts of 
beneficence, according to the ability of the Society, towards those 
officers and their families who unfortunately may be under the 
necessity of receiving it. 

The General Society will, for the sake of frequent communica- 
tions, be divided into State Societies, and those again into such 
districts as shall be directed by the State Society. 



SOCIETY OF THE CINCINNATI. 283 

The societies of the districts to meet as often as shall be 
agreed upon by the State Society; those of the State on the 
fourth day of July annually, or oftener, if they shall find it ex- 
pedient; and the General Society on the first Monday in May 
annually, so long as they shall deem it necessary, and afterwards, 
at least once in every three years. 

At each meeting the principles of the institution will be fully 
considered, and the best measures to promote them adopted. 

The State Societies will consist of all the members resident 
in each State respectively; and any m.ember removing from one 
State to another, is to be considered, in all respects, as belonging 
to the Society of the State in which he shall actually reside. 

The State Societies to have a president, vice-president, secre- 
tary, treasurer, and assistant treasurer, to be chosen annually 
by a majority of votes, at the State meeting. 

Each State shall write annually, or oftener, if necessary, a 
circular letter to the other State Societies, noting whatever they 
may think worthy of observation, respecting the good of the 
Society, or the general union of the States, and giving informa- 
tion of the officers chosen for the current year. Copies of these 
letters shall be regularly transmitted to the secretary-general of 
the Society, who will record them in a book to be assigned for 
that purpose. 

The State Society will regulate every thing respecting itself 
and the societies of the districts, consistent with the general 
maxims of the Cincinnati ; judge of the qualifications of the 
members who may be proposed ; and expel any member who, by 
conduct inconsistent with a gentleman and a man of honor, or 
by an opposition to the interests of the community in general, or 
the Society in particular, may render himself unworthy to con- 
tinue a member. 

In order to form funds which may be respectable, and assist 
the unfortunate, each officer shall deliver to the treasurer of the 
State Society one month's pay, which shall remain forever to the 
use of the State Society ; the interest only of which, if necessary, 
to be appropriated to the relief of the unfortunate. 

Donations may be made by persons not of the Society, and 
by members of the Society, for the express purpose of forming 
permanent funds for the use of the State Society; and the in- 



284 SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 

terest of these donations appropriated in the same manner as that 
of the month's pay. 

Moneys, at the pleasure of each member, may be subscribed 
in the societies of the districts, or the State Societies, for the re- 
lief of the unfortunate members, or their widows and orphans, 
to be appropriated by the State Society only. 

The meeting of the General Society shall consist of its officers, 
and a representation from each State Society, in number not 
exceeding five, whose expenses shall be borne by their respective 
State Societies. 

In the general meeting, the president, vice-president, secre- 
tary, assistant secretary, treasurer, and assistant treasurer-general, 
shall be chosen, to serve until the next meeting. 

The circular letters which have been written by the respective 
State Societies to each other, and their particular laws, shall be 
read and considered, and all measures concerted which may con- 
duce to the general intendment of the Society. 

It is probable that some persons may make donations to the 
General Society, for the purpose of establishing funds for the 
further comfort of the unfortunate ; in which case such donations 
must be placed in the hands of the treasurer-general, the interest 
only of which is to be disposed of, if necessary, by the general 
meeting. 

All the officers of the American army, as well those who have 
resigned with honor, after three years' service in the capacity of 
officers, or who have been deranged by the resolutions of Con- 
gress, upon the several reforms of the army, as those who shall 
have continued to the end of the war, have the right to become 
parties in this institution; provided that they subscribe one 
month's pay, and sign their names to the general rules, in their 
respective State societies, — those who are present with the army 
immediately, and others within six months after the army shall 
be disbanded, extraordinary cases excepted. The rank, time of 
service, resolutions of Congress by which they have been de- 
ranged, and place of residence, must be added to each name; 
and as a testimony of affection to the memory and the offspring 
of such officers as have died in the service, their eldest male 
branches shall have the same right of becoming members as the 
children of the actual members of the Society. 



SOCIETY OF THE CINCINNATI. 285 

Those officers who are foreigners, not resident in any of the 
States, will have their names enrolled by the secretary-general, 
and are to be considered as members in the societies of any of 
the States in which they may happen to be. 

And as there are, and will at all times be, men in the respective 
States, eminent for their abilities and patriotism, whose views may 
be directed to the same laudable objects with those of the Cincin- 
nati, it shall be a rule to admit such characters as honorary mem- 
bers of the Society, for their own lives onJy; Provided always, 
that the number of honorary members in each State does not 
exceed a ratio of one to four of the officers or their descendants. 

Each State Society shall obtain a list of its members, and, at 
the first annual meeting, the State secretary shall have engrossed, 
on parchment, two copies of the institution of the Society, which 
every member present shall sign; and the secretary shall en- 
deavor to procure the signature of every absent member ; one of 
those lists to be transmitted to the secretary-general, to be kept 
in the archives of the Society, and the other to remain in the hands 
of the State secretary. From the State lists, the secretary-general 
must make out, at the first general meeting, a complete list of 
the whole Society, with a copy of which he will furnish each 
State secretary. 

The Society shall have an Order, by which its members shall 
be known and distinguished, which shall be a medal, of gold, of 
a proper size to receive the emblems, and suspended by a deep- 
blue ribbon, two inches wide, edged with white, descriptive of 
the union of America and France, viz.: 

The principal figure, CINCINNATUS ; three senators pre- 
senting him with a sword and other military ensigns ; on a field 
in the background his wife standing at the door of their cottage ; 
near it a plough and implements of husbandry. Round the 
whole, Omnia reliquit servare Rempublicam. On the reverse: 
Sun rising; a city with open gates, and vessels entering the port; 
Fame crowning Cincinnatus with a wreath, inscribed Virtutis 
Proemium. Below; Hands joined, supporting a Heart, with the 
motto, Esto Perpetua. Round the whole, Societas Cincinnatornm 
Instituta, A. D. 1783. 

The Society, deeply impressed with a sense of the generous 
assistance this country has received from France, and desirous of

perpetuating the friendships which have been formed and so 
happily subsisted between the officers of the allied forces, in the 
prosecution of the war, direct, that the President-general trans- 
mit, as soon as may be, to each of the characters hereafter named, 
a medal containing the order of the Society, viz. : 
His Excellency the Chevalier De La Luzerne, Minister Plenipo- 
tentiary ; His Excellency the Sieur Gerard, late Minister Plenipo- 
tentiary ; Their Excellencies the Count D'Estaing, the Count 
De Grasse, the Count De Barras, the Chevalier De Touches, 
Admirals and Commanders in the Navy; His Excellency the 
Count De Rochambeau, Commander-in-Chief; and the Generals 
and Colonels of his army, and acquaint them that the Society 
does themselves the honor to consider them as members. 

RESOLVED, That a copy of the foregoing institution be 
given to the senior officer of each State Line, and that the officers 
of the respective State Lines sign their names to the same, in the 
manner and form following ; viz. : 

We, the subscribers, officers of the American army, do hereby 
voluntarily become parties to the foregoing institution, and do 
bind ourselves to observe, and be governed by, the principles 
therein contained. For the performance whereof we do solemnly 
pledge to each other our sacred honor. 

Done in the Cantonment on Hudson River, in the year 1783. 

General Heath, General Baron De Steuben, and General 
Knox, were appointed to wait on His Excellency General Wash- 
ington, with a copy of the Institution, and request him to honor 
the Society by placing his name at the head of it.

To allay the suspicion, which soon gained ground through- 
out the country, that the new order was designed to foster an 
aristocracy, based on military achievements and hereditary suc- 
cession, and that such an order would be inimical to republican 
institutions, the Cincinnati, at the first general meeting of the 
Society, held in Philadelphia on the 17th of May, 1784, re- 
organized and revised its by-laws of government. Washington 
favored the changes and submitted his views in writing. Amend- 
ments embodying these views were promptly adopted and the 
constitution amended accordingly. The alterations thus effected 
may be summed up as follows: 

Discontinuance of the hereditary part absolutely; admission 
of no more honorary members ; and the rejection of subscrip- 
tions or donations from any person not a citizen of the United 
States.

KING'S MOUNTAIN. 

October 7, 1780. 

By Makshall DeLancey Haywood. 

Fierce Ferguson came inarching down 
And pitched his tents at Gilbert Town, 

Within the Old North State; 
No man who viewed his strong array, 
Upholding Britain's iron sway, 

Could then foresee his fate. 

He bade his messengers proclaim 
A pardon, in King George's name. 

To each repentant foe; 
And tales they told on every hand 
Of how the rebels brought the land 

To misery and woe — 

"Georgia has yielded to the Crown, 
The old Palmetto flag is down, 

New England sues for peace; 
Upon Virginia's rugged shore. 
Our reinforcements daily pour, 

So let your treason cease." 

Then spoke an acient mountaineer : 
"Naught of New England can we hear. 

But trust her valiant sons; 
Those other States will share our fame 
By helping us your pride to tame 

With hunting-knives and guns. 

"Our own McDowells, brave and true. 
Are forming now a rendezvous 

On Quaker Meadows fair; 
Hambright, Lenoir, and Cleveland stout, 
With Vance and Winston have come out 

To join our forces there. 

"Shelby and Williams, strong Sevier, 
And Chronicle, devoid of fear. 

Are longing for the fray; 
And trusty allies from afar 
Are marching to the scene of war 

With all their brave array. 

(321) 



322 SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 

"At home, in his Virginia glen, 
Bold Campbell marshals now his men 

To join us in the fight; 
The State upon our southern side, 
Where Lacey's daring troopers ride, 

Is rising in her might. 

"And far away, on Georgia hills, 
Hammond and Clarke resent the ills 

Our country undergoes; 
They even now, with grim intent. 
Are on this deadly errand bent 

To strike our tyrant foes. 

"So let your gasconading Scot 
Beware the Deckard rifle's shot, 

We know its use full well! 
And how we'll track him to his lair, 
Leaving his lifeless body there, 

The future years shall tell." 

The speaker paused; then saw afar 
The crippled spy, young Joseph Kerr, 

Come limping on his way: 
He ran to meet that scout so bold, 
Whose tidings (in a whisper told) 

Described the King's array — 

"Our foes decamped within the night 
And on yon mountain's lofty height 

Have fortified their post; 
They revel there with song and wine, 
And even swear the Power Divine 

Shall not molest their host." 

The old man answered: "Let them stay! 
Tomorrow, at the break of day, 

We'll seek the Redcoats there; 
And Ferguson shall sorely rue 
The time his base marauding crew 

First breathed our western air.'' 

The morrow's clouds hung law and still 
As up the steep and rugged hill 

A thousand hunters sped; 
With rifles pouring fire and smoke. 
Through bayonets they fiercely broke, 

And piled the ground with dead. 




COLONEL PATRICK FERGUSON. 



KING'S MOUNTAIN. 323 

The Tory leader, in his pride, 
With brave DePeyster by his side. 

The fight would never yield. 
His silver whistle wildly blew, 
Till, pierced with seven bullets through, 

He dropped upon the field. 

And many a bold assailant fell, 
To save the land he loved so well. 

Before the day was won; 
Pale Chronicle could rise no more. 
And Williams weltered in his gore 

Beneath the autumn sun. 

When Ferguson was stricken dead 
His men in consternation fled 

To reach the level plain; 
But in the mountain's lower glades 
They met with countless ambuscades. 

And sought the hill again. 

Surrounded there and brought to bay, 
They yielded up the hopeless fray 

To those bold rebel bands; 
And never more, with vaunting pride, 
In warlike guise they dared to ride 

Throughout our mountain lands. 

May we, in all the coming years. 
Honor those stalwart pioneers 

Who battled for the right; 
And may our discords pass away 
Until we reach that happy day 

When men shall cease to fight 



324 SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 



True Patriotism. 



We love to look upon the places of our infancy, and to loiter 
amidst the scenes of our boyish recollections. The house in 
which we dwelt, the ground on which we sported, the plans of 
youthful enterprise, the objects of early affection, the very cradle 
in which we were rocked, all bring with them soft and mellow 
remembrances upon which memory pauses for instruction and 
delight. All things else may have faded to our eyes under the 
withering influence of time, but to us these "flourish in eternal 
green," and if they are also the records of improving intellect 
and expanding virtue and honor, how proudly do we recur to 
them in manhood to incite us to further improvement, and in 
the decline of life to smooth the downward way! Why should 
it not be so with nations? To them the cradle of their liberties, 
the scenes of their infant struggles, the theatre of their youthful 
enterprises, and the history of their advancement to maturity, 
bring recollections equally full of pleasure and instruction. And 
yet the inquiry into these is but too often deemed an idle curiosity, 
and the explorer is sneeringly termed "an Antiquarian." 

There is a certain kind of national pride springing from a 
nation's history, which is essential to its dignity, and eminently 
useful in its advancement. 'Tis not the pride which springs upon 
the merit of the departed like the shoots of a certain fruit, where, 
to use the language of another, "all that is fruit is under ground." 
It is the pride which rests upon self respect, springing from the 
consciousness that we have preserved in all its purity and in- 
tegrity the character transmitted to us by our ancestors, and 
inspiring us to a noble emulation of them by striving to give 
fresh lustre to the legacy. All who have observed the workings 
of such a feeling upon individuals and upon nations, have seen 
how it has animated them to deeds worthy of their sires. In 
ranging through the history of the most illustrious nations of 
ancient and modern times, and in tracing the causes of the 
achievements which have given them renown, we find this proper 
national pride everywhere conspicuous. Whatever has illustrated 
and adorned the nation, becomes interwoven with the national

character ; and the individuals of the nations, to a certain degree, 
feel and move as if they were clothed with that character. The 
bright examples of the past are before them, and under the recol- 
lections which belong to these, they act as if the spirits of their 
forefathers were hovering around them to behold their deeds. In 
moments of exigency they feel as he of old, when he exclaimed, 
"I am a Roman citizen" and when they cease to feel thus, and 
the national character ceases to be respected and cherished, from 
that instant the national decline commences. 

— McMahon's Maryland. 



LEXINGTON. 

Slowly the mist o'er the meadow was creeping, 
Bright on the dewy buds glistened the sun, 
When from his couch, while his children were sleeping, 
Rose the bold rebel and shouldered his gun. 

Waving her golden veil 

Over the silent dale. 
Blithe looked the morning on cottage and spire ; 

Hushed was his parting sigh. 

While from his noble eye 
Flashed the last sparkle of liberty's fire. 

On the smooth green where the fresh leaf is springing 

Calmly the first-born of glory have met; 
Hark! the death-volley around them is ringing! 

Look! with their life-blood the young grass is wet! 

Faint is the feeble breath, 

Murmuring low in death, 
"Tell to our sons how their fathers have died;'' 

Nerveless the iron hand. 

Raised for its native land. 
Lies by the weapon that gleams at its side. 

Green be the graves where her martyrs are lying! 

Shroudless and tombjess they sunk to their rest,— 
While o'er their ashes the starry fold flying 

Wraps the proud eagle they roused from his nest. 
Borne on her Northern pine. 
Long o'er the foaming brine 
Spread her broad banner to storm and to sun ; 
Heaven keep her ever free. 
Wide as o'er land and sea 
Floats the fair emblem her heroes have won! 

— Holmes.

THE NEW FREEDOM. 

"Oh, young mariner! 
Down to the haven, 
Call your companions; 
Launch your vessel. 
And crowd your canvass. 
And ere it vanishes 
Over the margin, 
After it, follow it. 
Follow the Gleam !" 

At last a vision has been vouchsafed us of our life as a whole. 
We see the bad with the good, the debased and decadent with the 
sound and vital. With this vision we approach new affairs. Our 
duty is to cleanse, to reconsider, to restore, to correct the evil 
without impairing the good, to purify and humanize every process 
of our common life without weakening or sentimentalizing it. 

We have made up our minds to square every process of our 
National life again with the standards we so proudly set up at the 
beginning and have always carried in our hearts. Our work is a 
work of restoration. 

This is no sentimental duty. The firm basis of government 
is justice. There can be no equality of opportunity, the first es- 
sential of justice in the body politic, if men and women and chil- 
dren be not shielded in their lives, their very vitality, from the 
consequences of great industrial and social processes which they 
can not alter, control, or singly cope with. Society must see to it 
that it does not itself crush or weaken or damage its own con- 
stituent parts. The first duty of law is to keep sound the society 
it serves. Sanitary laws, pure food laws, and laws determining 
conditions of labor, which individuals are powerless to determine 
for themselves, are intimate parts of the very business of justice 
and legal efficiency. 

These are some of the things we ought to do and not leave 
the others undone, the old-fashioned, never-to-be-neglected, fun- 
damental safeguarding of property and of individual right. This 
is the high enterprise of the new day ; to lift everything that con- 
cerns our life as a nation to the light that shines from the hearth- 
fire of every man's conscience and vision of the right. It is in- 



THE NEW FREEDOM. 327 

conceivable that we should do this as partisans ; it is inconceivable 
we should do it in ignorance of the facts as they are or in blind 
haste. We shall restore, not destroy; we shall deal with our 
economic system as it is and as it may be modified, not as it might 
be if we had a clean sheet of paper to write upon; and step by 
step we shall make it what it should be, in the spirit of those who 
question their own wisdom and seek counsel and knowledge, not 
shallow self-satisfaction or the excitement of excursions whither 
they can not tell. Justice, and only justice, shall always be our 
motto. 

And yet it will be no cool process of mere science. The Na- 
tion has been deeply stirred, stirred by a solemn passion, stirred 
by the knowledge of wrong, of ideals lost, of government too 
often debauched and made an instrument of evil. The feelings 
with which we face this new age of right and opportunity sweep 
across our heart-strings like some air out of God's own presence, 
where justice and mercy are reconciled and the judge and the 
brother are one. We know our task to be no mere task of 
politics, but a task which shall search us through and through, 
whether we be able to understand our time and the need of our 
people, whether we be indeed their spokesmen and interpreters, 
whether we have the pure heart to comprehend and the rectified 
will to choose our high course of action. 

This is not a day of triumph ; it is a day of dedication. Here 
muster, not the forces of party, but the forces of humanity. 
Men's hearts wait upon us; men's lives hang in the balance; 
men's hopes call upon us to say what we will do. Who shall live 
up to the great trust? Who dares fail to try? I summon aH 
honest men, all patriotic, all forward-looking men, to my side. 
God helping me, I will not fail them, if they will but counsel and 
sustain me !

PAUL REVERE'S RIDE. 

A hurry of hoofs in a village street, 

A shape in the moonlight, a bulk in the dark. 

And beneath, from the pebbles, in passing, a spark 

Struck out by a steed flying fearless and fleet: 

That was all! And yet, through the gloom and the light, 

The fate of a nation was riding that night ; 

And the spark struck out by that steed, in his flight, 

Kindled the land into flame with its heat. 

You know the rest. In the books you have read. 
How the British Regulars fired and fled, — 
How the farmers gave them ball for ball. 
From behind each fence and farm-yard wall. 
Chasing the red-coats down the lane. 
Then crossing the fields _to emerge again 
Under the trees at the turn of the road. 
And only pausing to fire and load. 

So through the night rode Paul Revere; 

And. so through the night went his cry of alarm 

To every Middlesex village and farm, — 

A cry of defiance and not of fear, 

A voice in the darkness, a knock at the door. 

And a word that shall echo forevermore ! 

For, borne on the night-wind of the Past, 

Through all our history, to the last. 

In the hour of darkness and peril and need, 

The people will waken and listen to hear 

The hurrying hoof-beats of that steed, 

And the midnight message of Paul Revere. 

— Longfellow.

THE BIVOUAC OF THE DEAD. 

The muffled drum's sad roll has beat 

The soldier's last tattoo; 
No more on life's parade shall meet 

The brave and daring few. 
On Fame's eternal camping-ground 

Their silent tents are spread. 
And Glory guards with solemn round 

The bivouac of the dead. 

Rest on, enshrined and sainted dead ! 

Dear as the blood you gave, 
No impious footsteps here shall tread 

The herbage of your grave; 
Nor shall your glory be forgot 

While Fame her record keeps, 
Or Honor points the hallowed spot 

Where Valor proudly sleeps.

THE NAMING OF LEXINGTON. 



By Alan Pegram Gilmour. 



"The eighteenth of April in 'Seventy-five, 
Hardly a man is now alive 
Who remembers that famous day and year !" 



So sang the poet, if my memory's clear, 
In telling of the ride of Paul Revere. 



But, have we now forgotten it, that time our patriots hurled 

The shot of proud defiance that went thundering 'round the world? 

Ah, no, far from it, brothers, here around us you can see 

In this city of the Blue Grass, of our dear old Kentucky, 

A memorial, time-defying, to that glorious war begun 

By the fight in Massachusetts, near the village, Lexington. 

'Twas a summer night, and hunters, comrades of th' immortal Boone, 
Were encamped where now we banquet, and the yellow harvest moon 
Shed its rays thro' spreading branches over men of stalwart breed, 
Men who won this empire for us by sheer grit and gallant deed; 
Men who made the toilsome journey o'er the Cumberland's steep trail. 
And with firm faith fought on Westward, knowing no such word as "FAIL." 

To the pathfinders thus resting 'round their fire beneath the trees 
Came a messenger, all breathless, and his tidings, they were these : 

"There has been a fight, my brothers, and our arms have won the day. 
On the bloody field of Lexington, up Massachusetts way: 
We have sent the redcoats flying like a pack of driven sheep. 
And the flames of revolution thro' the Colonies now sweep 
From the hills o'erlooking Boston to Savannah by the sea. 
While our proud flag bears the motto : 'AMERICA IS FREE !' 
Free for all time from bondage to a hated foreign band — 
America, the Beautiful, our own dear native land !" 
He ceased, and for a moment silence held all rooted there 
With amazement at the tidings, but next instant on the air 
Rose the wild whoop of the hunters as they leaped up from the ground. 
Waking forest glade and hillside with the glad triumphant sound 
Which met the proclamation of another nation's birth — 
The advent of Columbia, the fairest land on earth. 




ALAN P. GILMOUR. 



SONG OF THE RAID. 361 

When at length the mad elation of the hunters ran its course 
Stepped forth young Robert Patterson, and in voice emotion-hoarse: 

"Let us give this spot, my comrades," cried he, "'whereon now we stand, 
The glorious name of LEXINGTON, which shall be throughout the 

land 
For all time to come a monument that the sons of men can see. 
And an altar dedicated to a people brave and free !" 

Thus our fair town had its origin, in the days of long ago, 

And though you'll find upon the map at least a score or so 

Of other towns called Lexington, the one without a peer 

Is the one that harbors us tonight — this good old town, right here ! 



SONG OF THE RAID. 

On the Cumberland's bosom 

The moonbeams are bright, 
And the path of the raiders 

Is plain by her light; 
Across the broad riffle 

And up the steep bank. 
The long, winding column 

Moves rank after rank. 

Then ho ! for the Blue Grass — 

And welcome the chance — 
No matter the danger 

That bids us advance; 
The odds must be heavy 

To turn or deter 
The lads who make war 

With the pistol and spur! 

All hail! to the Blue Grass, 

So sweet in my sight — 
To its pastures so green 

And its waters so bright; 
If it pass to the stranger. 

Be lost to the brave, 
I'll ask of my birthland 

Enough for a grave. 

— Duke.

THE NATIONAL ENSIGN. 



(By Robert C. Winthrop.) 



Behold it! Listen to it! Every star has a tongue. Every 
stripe is articulate. There is no language or speech where their 
voices are not heard. There's magic in the web of it. It has an 
answer for every question. It has a solution for every doubt and 
every perplexity. It has a word of good cheer for every hour of 
gloom or despondency. 

Behold it 1 Listen to it ! 

It speaks of earlier and later struggles. It speaks of heroes 
and patriots among the living and among the dead. 

But before all, and above all other associates and memories, 
whether of glorious men, or glorious deeds, or glorious places, 
its voice is ever of union and liberty, of the constitution and the 
laws. 

Behold it ! Listen to it ! 

Let it tell the story of its birth to these gallant volunteers as 
they march beneath its folds by day or repose beneath its sentinel 
stars by night. Let it recall to them the strange, eventful history 
of its rise and progress. Let it rehearse to them the wondrous 
tale of its trials and its triumphs in peace and war. 




"OUR COLORS" 




The tattered end torn and battle 
worn Flag that, on Sept. 14, 
1814, inspired Francis Scott 
Key to write our National 
Hymn. 



Our Flag of today as proportioned and 
defined by Executive Order of 
Oct. 29. 1912. 



"Flag of the free heart's hope and home, 
By angel hands to valor given!" 



THE STAR-SPANGLED BANNER. 

(Defense of Fort McHenry.) 

OH, say, can you see, by the dawn's early light, 

What so proudly we hail'd at the twilight's last gleaming. 
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, thro' the perilous fight. 

O'er the ramparts we watcb'd were so gallantly streaming, 
And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air. 

Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there — 
Oh, say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave 

O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave? 

On the shore dimly seen thro' the mists of the deep 

Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes. 
What is that which the breeze o'er the towering steep. 

As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses? 
Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam. 

In full glory reflected, now shines on the stream; 
'Tis the star-spangled banner, oh ! long may it wave 

O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave ! 

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore. 

That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion, 
A home and a country should leave us no more? 

Their blood has washed out their foul footstep's pollution. 
No refuge could save the hireling and slave 

From the terror of flight or the gloom' of the grave ; 
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave 

O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave. 

Oh ! thus be it ever when freemen shall stand 

Between their lov'd homes and the war's desolation; 
Blest with vic'try and peace, may the heav'n-rescued land 

Praise the pow'r that hath made and preserv'd us a nation; 
Then conquer we must when our cause it is just. 

And this be our motto, "In God is our trust." 
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave 

O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave ! 

— Francis Scott Key.
