Ky dear -Mi 86 Thornton: — Some time ago "both Mrs. Edwin C. Gregory, State Regent of the Daughters of the American Revolution, and Mrs- William IT. Reynolds, chairman of the North Carolina Women's Committee for the Sesqui-Centennial in Philadelphia, asked me to answer their requests from you for material about the Moore's Creek battleground celebration and North Carolina's part in the sesquicentennial. Both for lack of time and lack of material I have neglected these requests until now. I can get together at I am sending you as much copy as this late date, mostly from my files. Had I known at the times of the events that you would want material, I could have sent more. As it is, I am afraid that the enclosed clippings will be worthless. I am sorry. Do you know that already it seems impossible to obtain copies of the best newspaper accounts of the Moore's Creek battleground proceedings? That shows the need for just such work as you are doing. If I can be of any further service to you for either Mrs. Gregory or Mrs. Reynolds, pleaBe call upon me. Pardon the delay. I hope that the enclosed will be of some little good. Very truly yours, ctnj\ciJuS&ilJ OBTEF MAKKER. The chief marker on the battle- field was erected in 18'57, a simple rownstone shaft on a low, sandy luff by a deep, wide creek. One Ide bears the name of Lllllngton, ,-hile opposite is the name of Cas- well, the two patriot leaders of the lattle. On its western face is this nscriptlon: "In commemoration of the bat- le of Moore's Creek Bridge, fought lere February 2'7, 1776. The first victory gained by the American irms In the war of the revolution." On the fourth side la the follow- •TTere He the remains of Private John Grady, of Duplin county, who fell bravely fighting for his coun- try — th e first martyr In the cause of freedom In North Carolina, and the only whig killed in the battle." The battle of fiMoore's Creek Bridge was of much importance not only to North Carolinians but also to the other colonies of America. Besides frustrating Kink George's expectation of enlisting aid from the Highland settlers, breaking the morale of the loyalists and prevent- ing the planned invasion of the colony, the victory occurred, at the psychological moment to aid greatly the cause of Independence and free- dom. SCOTCH HIGHLANDERS. After Governor Joslah Martin, the last royal governor of the prov- ince, had fled from the Tryon palace capltol in New Bern to Fort John- ston, of Wilmington, on the coast, and thence to the sleep-of-war Crui- ser, he endeavored to rally Scotch Highlanders In the valley of the Cape Fear river. T>onaId McDonald, hero of Cullo- den and Bunker Hill, advocated the king's cause in the section. Hun- dreds of torles came to the royal standards. Allen McDonald, hns r band of Flora McDonald, of Bon- nie Prince Charlie and tory fame, and others assisted with the enlist- ments.' Plans were laid by the loyalists for the Invasion of North Carolina, one of the most important of the 13 colonies.

With playing bagpipes and flying colors, the Highlanders left Cross_ Creek, now the city of Fayettevllle, and marched towards Wilmington, to Join the expected British army. 'Only about 1,6-00 stayed with the leaders, when it was heard that the royal troops had not then arrived. PATRIOTS RAXiLY. From various sections of t>e province the patriots rallied their forces. The 1,000 men were chiefly soldiers under Col. James Moore, of th© first North Carolina resi- de j ment In the Continental army; mln- di- nte men from New Bern and New be Hanover and militia from Craven, of Dobbfl and Bladen counties under Col. Richard Caswell; Duplin militia tn- under Col. James Kenan; a hun- of dred "volunteer independent yagers" **** from Wilmington, commanded byj 'Col. John Ashe; and 150 minute men from Wilmington under Col. Alexander Dllllngton. Playing somewhat for time, Moore pursued the high landers, then di- rected Colonel Thackston, of the rn \ Hlllsboro district, and Colonel Mar- tin, of the Salisfburg district, to take possession of Cross Creek, to pre- vent possible retreat of the torles there. Caswell was ordered to cap- ture Corbet's ferry over Black river. Lllllngton and Ashe were sent ahead to take Moore's creek bridge. Advance orders were well carried out, and on the night of February 26 attention was centered on (Moore's creek bridge. Trie torles had crossed Black river by raising a sunken flat and building a bridge and were reported to be on their Lieutenant glocumb, riding alone at night 65 miles to succor the wound- ed on this battleffleld.

OmW BERN, Aug-. 14. — The ses- irao-centennial anniversary celebra- tion of the battle of Moore's Creek Bridge, commemorating the Impolt- ance of the "first American victory during the war of the revolution," to be held at the battleground on Tuesday, August 24, will be one of the most elaborate and colorful cele- brations of the kind ever held m North Carolina. The event is of particular state and national Interest because of the fafct that as a chief feature of the day's progTam the 30-acre tract of land In Pender county will be turned over by the state of North Caro- lina to the federal government for establishment as a national mili- tary P*wk, according to the bill passed by the last Congress and signed by President Coolldge.

The war college decided, how- - , that the place belonged in the .i,9 general classification as did .a battlefields of Lexington and Conoord, of local Importance enough to have erected there some national monument, but not of enough na- tional Importance to warrant adop- tion as a national park. Refusing to be discouraged, Mr. Abernethy kept up his fight. He was positive of the battle's import- ance and the battlefleld's value from a national as well as a local stand- point, and he was determined to see that the Bite was given its just right*. DAUGHTERS INTERESTED. The Daughters of the American Revolution in North Carolina for some time had been Interested in the project. Without knowing of Mr. Abernethy's bill, the state re- gent, Mrs. Edwin C. Gregory, last winter requested the chairman of the D. A. R. resolutions committee to Incorporate in the conference re- port a resolution urging strongly the creation of the tract into a na- tional park by action of Congress. This resolution was unanimously passed at the state D. A. R. confer- ence held In March at Charlotte. At the thirty-fifth continental congress, D. A. R-, held in April in Washington, Mrs. Gregory se- cured the unanimous adoption of a resolution by which the National Society, D. A. R., sponsored the pro- ject and endorsed the North Caro- lina state conference resolution. With Representative Abernethy and with other members of the North Carolina Society, D. A. K„ Mrs. Gregory appeared at a hear- ing on the subject before the com- mittee on military afairs of the house of representatives on April 21 asking that the park be estab- lished by federal law, according to the bill re-lntroduced In the house by Mr. Abernethy. Statements by Mrs. Gregory, Mrs. Anthony Wayne CooK, president general: Mrs. George De Bolt, his- torian general, Mrs. John Trigg Moss, chairman of the resolutions committee, N. S„ D. A R.. and oth- ers were published In the records of the committee on military affairs, with a favorable report by the com- .mlttee to the house. i OVERMAN GETS BUST. Subsequently the bill was passed by the house, providing for the es- tablishment of Moore's Creek bat- l tle ground as, a national military park Senator Lee S. Overman father of Mrs. Gregory, obtained a favorable report on the measure In the senate commission on library and procured Its passage in the sen- ate * An appropriation of $1,50-0 wis provided by the house for a sur- vey of the battlefield, to see what was needed on the tract. The amount was raised to $'3, 000 by the senate committee, through the In- fluence of Senator Overman, hut it was not Increased In conference, as It was decided that this sum should he sufficient for the purpose and 1 that efforts should be concentrated later on obtaining satisfactory an- nual appropriations. K O t+i I The deed transferring the battle- eround from the state of North Caroline to the federal rovern- ment has been drawn by Assistant Attorney-General Frank Nash and has been forwarded to the attor- nev-general of the United States. The pen with which Resident Coolldge signed the bill was given to Mr. Abernethy. who on June if formally presented It to the na- tion* board of the Daughters of the \merlcan Revolution In session at Washington. It has been placed In the museum-of the D. A. R. memo- rial continental hall at Washlng- BATTTiTJ GROUNTV TRACT. The battleground tract of 80 acres to be adopted by the federal government on August 24 Is situa- ted half a mile from the town of Currle, Pender county, about V£ miles noithweet of Wilmington. It will be the only national park J that region. When connected with the state system of paved highways, as planned, it should become a pop- ular resort. On the site are several CHIEF MARKER. The chief marker on the battle- field was erected in 18'67. a simple "brownstone shaft on a low, sandy bluff by a deep, wide creek. One side bears the name of Lllllngton, while opposite Is the name of Cas- well, the two patriot leaders of the battle. On Its western face is this inscription: "In commemoration of the bat- tle of Moore's Creek Bridge, fought here February 27, 1776. The first victory gained by the American arms in the war of the revolution." On the fourth side le the follow- ing: "Here He the remains of Private | John Grady, of Duplin county, who fell bravely fighting for his coun- try — the first martyr In the cause of freedom In North Carolina, and the only whig killed in the battle." The battle of HMoore's Creek Bridge was of much Importance not only to North Carolinians but also to the other colonies of America. Besides frustrating Kink George's expectation of enlisting aid from the Highland settlers, breaking the morale of the loyalists and prevent- ing the planned Invasion of the colony, the victory occurred, at the psychological moment to aid greatly the cause of independence and free- dom. SCOTCH HIGHXANT/ERS. After Governor Joslah Martin, the last royal governor of the prov- ince, had fled from the Tryon palace capitol In New Bern to Fort John- ston, of Wilmington, on the coast, and thence to the sleep-of-war Crui- ser, he endeavored to rally Scotch Highlanders in the valley of the Cape Fear river. Donald McDonald, hero of Cullo- den and Bunker Hill, advocated the king's cause In the section. Hun- dreds of torles came to the royal standards. Allen McDonald, hus r band of Flora McDonald, of Bon- nie Prince Charlie and tory fame, and others assisted with the enlist- ments.'

On the southern side la the Inscription: 'Unswerving In devotion, self-sacrificing In loyalty to the cause of their country, their works do follow them and their children rise up and call them blessed." On the northern side is written: "Most honored of the women re- corded by this historical association Is that of Mary Slocumb, wife of Lieutenant glocumb, riding alone at night 65 miles to succor the wound- ed on this battleffleld. Her hero- ism and self-sacriflfce place her= high on the pages of history and should awaken In successive gen- erations true patriotism and love of country." men from Wilmington under Col. Alexander Llllington. Playing somewhat for time, Moor e pursued the highlanders, then di- rected Colonel Thackston, of the Hlllsboro district, and Colonel Mar- tin, of the Salls-burg district, to take possession of Cross Creek, to pre- vent possible retreat of the torles there. Caswell was ordered to cap- ture Corbet's ferry over Black river. Llllington and Ashe were sent ahead to take Moore's creek bridge. Advance orders were well carried out, and on the night of February 26 attention was centered on tMoore's creek bridge. The torles had crossed Black river by raising a sunken flat and building a bridge and were reported to be on their way to the creek en route to Wil- mington. An entrenched position on a sandy elevation, about 100 yards frfom the "bridge, had been occupied by the patriots. A breastwork waa thrown up at the crossing'. Part of the bridge was destroyed, the planks be- ing removed and the pine pole gir- ders being greased with tallow and covered with soft soap to make the crossing more difficult. CASWELL ADOPTS RUSE. Caswell artfully led the enejmy to believe that he was camping on the other side of the stream. Fires were left burning there. The ruse worked successfully. Early the nest morning Col. Donald MCLeod, who had taken the place of his sick commander. General McDonald, at- tacked what he supposed to be Cas- well's camp. iMcLeod courageously placed him- self then at the head of fa picked band of broadswordsmen to charge across the bridge. The opposite en- trenchment seemed abandoned and the leader presumed that the pa- triots had fled. With a shout of joy he called that the day was won. -Quickly he started the advance over the bridge. Shouting their battle cry, "King George and Broadswords," the tories were surprised by a voice calling: "Who goes there ?" "A friend," replied McLeod. "A friend to whom?" the other asked. "To the King." was the reply. MEET" A SURPRISE. 'Midway over the bridge they were surprised by the guns of the con- cealed patriots, who had been lying In wait until the highlandera were witJnin ftft mou. sum MattUu ri i broadswords, or claymores, were no match for the patriots' rifles. Small cannon on the breastworks swept ithe bridge. ■- ■ The loyalist army was . completely routed. Colonel McLeod and the second leader, John Campbell, and numbers of others were killed. The tories fled in disorder. A flfank at- tack added to the defeat. Over 800 prisoners, including Allen McDonald and later General McDonald, were captured. Stores amounting to $100,000 were seized by the patriots. Trophies in- cluded 1,500 rifles, 350 guns and shot-bags, 150 swords and dirks, two medicine chests, 13 wagons and a box of guineas amounting to 15,000 sterling. The only whig killed in the ac- tion was John Grady, a private. The victory was complete. Soon after- wards Cornwallis and Clinton reached the Cape Fear, according to appointment. Learning of the de- feat of the toriea, they sailed away to South Carolina, taking with them Josiah Martin. Hhus ended the first planned invasion of North Carollna. Not only was 'North Carolina saved for the American cause, but the tories were taught a potent les- son at a very, crucial period. Nev- er again did they attempt to com- bine forces for the king. Virginia, South Carolina, Georgia and other colonies were also probably saved frfom conquest at that time by the forestalling of the planned British campaign in North Carolina. IMPORTANT VICTORY. The victory, too, was one of the chieff factors leading to the ulti- mate decision of the colony to pass the famous Halifax resolution for independence and freedom from England, so powerful in lis effect on the subsequent adoption of the federal declaration of independence. 'The effect of the victory was as contagious as that of Lexington had been in New England," John Fiske writes in the first volume of his history of tfhe American revolution. "Within 10 days 10,000 militia were ready to withstand the enemy, so that Clinton, on his arrival, decided not to land. ... A provincial Con- gress was forthwith assembled and instructions were shot to the North Carolina delegates in £he continen- tal Congress, empowering them to concur. ... in declaring independ- ence." "Moore's Creek was the Rubicon over which North Carolina passed to independence and constitutional selff-government," according to the historian R. D. W. Connor. "The whig leaders . . . approached In- dependence slowly, through a long process of development . . . Offi- cially North Carolina led the way with' the fifrst resolution adopted by any of the colonies authorizing their delegates In the continental Con- gress to vote for independence." Mrs. Bros3eau, National D.A.R. Head, Speaks at Moore's Creek Bridge Celebration ATKINSON. . C, Aug. 24. — INS— Scathingly condemning the "de-bunk- infe" of American history as an of- ense as heinous as to "wantonly de- stroy the myth of Santa Claus." Mrs. , Alfred J. Brosseau. of Greenwich, Conn., president general of the Na- J tional Society of Daughters of the | American Revolution, made a stirring . plea today for preservation of the j ip'iTit of '7 6. j The occasion of the denunciation j of the so-called realists "who main- [ fain that heroes of the past are be- I i ing clothed in false sentimentality," was the Moore'sCreek Battleground j sesqui-centennial celebration at which j the 30-acre tract was formally turn- ed over to the United States govern- | ment for the creation of a national j memorial park. "Right-thinking people," Mrs. Bros- I . seau declared, "stand for the same' j truth in history that they demand In i | the present where the issues of IH*1 are involved, but I, for one, resent the ' I attitude of those who would ruthless- j fly tear the veil of illusion from tha- I eves of the young. To rob them of the exaltation of hero worship is just as cruel as to destroy the beautiful myth o-f Santa Claus. "Truth never has and never will be submerged beneath any halo of ro- mance or the grlamour of golden deeds, for intimate experience teaches life's fine distinctions. The memory of childhood's unclouded belief in hu- man perfection is the most precious thing that we can carry through the valley of disillusionment. "The significance of this year will be lost upon us if we fail to remind ourselves of our own responsibilities of citizenship. Fundamentally, gov- ernment is maintained through the will of the majority and to be of that majority and to insist upon its con- tinued, right to good government, is (he duty of every honest American citizen. ., "The great numbers of our so-call- ed intelligentsia are failing to take ad- vantage the privilege, which is a most lamentable fact, and if some day we awake to face a revolt against the old order, we, shall have no one but our- selves to blame. "At a recent celebration in New York City, the chairman of the occa- sion instructed that the Star Spangled Banner be played, but not sung, giv- ing as a reason thatifceertain of the verses might be deemed offensive to England. "Honor for honor, loyalty for loy- alty, consideration always for those less fortunate, the stretching out of friendly hands across the sea — so much may we offer with fine dignity and self-esteem but this Is not the time the elimination o words that weaken to attempt to placate any country by our declaration of fixed principles of independence and freedom. "Par better it is," she continued, "to use that same energy and influence to the end that our own government may be kept so safe and sane and sound, so far above reproach that no nation on earth will dare find fault with what we sing or say or do." "At this time, more than ever, should children be taught that next to the preseiwation of government and its institutions, and loyalty to its chosen leader, must the ideals of its founders bo cherished, declared Mrs. Brosseau. "We have lived in vain and have been poor observers of the passing show of life if we fail now to convey to the young builders of tomorrow the unalterable truth that such a splen- did, enduring foundation could have been reared only through sacrifice, courage, wisdom, a true vision of the : future, and — what is more important of all — a pure love of country." Calling the Old North, State the Al- ,pha and Omega of the American Rev- olution, Mrs. Brosseau touched brief- ly on the history of Moore's Creek ! Battleground. "As Hon. Charles Abernethy said 1 when addressing the House of Rep- ■ resentatives last May, it was not s'o much the spoils and the prisoners tak- en (in the battle of Moore's Creek), iOT even the inequality of numbers in the encounter that counted so much, as the fact that the first battle won at such great odds had a remarkably ^stimulating effect upon the colonists. Not only was North Carolina strength- ened as to morale, but the word trav- elled far and wide In the course of time and doubting, troubled hearts were cosed " Plans For Tarheel Day At Philadelphia Made By Committee By BROCK BARKI/EY (By leased Wire) RALEIGH, N. C, May 21. — Governor Martin's famous procla- mation of 123 years ago calling upon North Carolina to celebrate the fourth of July, 1S03, the first State in the union to observe In- dependence day, will be among historical documents in a North Carolina exhibit at the Philadel- phia Sesqui-Centennial celebration. Plans for the State's participa- tion, set in motion at a meeting here today of the Women's State committee exposition, look to the maintenance here today of the historical exhibit and a North Carolina bureau of information. Besides, at least one of the State's historic military companieSj and possibly two others, will at- tend "Flag Day" exercises on June 14 while a State chorus will participate on North Carnhna day, October 6, in the song-fest of 44 States. . Thirty-five members of the women's committee, recently ap- pointed Vby Governor McLean to have charge of plans t\v North Carolina part in the exposition, at- tended the meeting at the Sir Walter Hotel today. Governor McLean and the heads of several State departments met with them, Mrs. Aubrey L. Brooks, of Greens- boro, presided in the absence of Mrs. W. N. Reynolds, of Winston- Salem, the committee chairman. Information Bureau The idea of the information bu- reau and historical exhibit met with the enthusiastic endorse- ment of the committee, and a fund of §10,000 will be raised to meet the expenses of operating the bu- reau from July 1 to October 1. Governor McLean and Mrs. Rey- nolds will appoint a sub -commit- tee to arrange for the finances. The Governor expressed the wish that the State might have had an appropriation available for the promotion of a State program, at the celebration, but the event was not projected until after the last Legislature had adjourned. He endorsed heartily the Idea of the bureau of information where literature, maps, and pictures showing North Carolina's progress might be displayed and distribut- ed. To form a historical exhibit, he suggested documents showing the part of North Carolina in the events leading up to the Declara- tion of Independence. Miss Adelaide Fries, of Winston- Salem, announced that she was preparing an exhibit that would in- clude Governor Martina's famous proclamation of 1803. Adjutant General J. Van B. Meets nromised the co-operation of the National Guard and announc- ed that the Fayetteville light in- fantry had completed plans to at- tend the Flag day exercisas June 14 and that the Charlotte com- pany and the Wilmington Light Infantry may participate. Charles W. Picquet, of Pine- hurst, appoint? d by the Governor some time ago to organize a State chorus, said that he was en- deavoring to interest several towns and cities of the State in a plan to send their youthful talent to Philadelphia. Fayetteville has al- ready arranged to finance a num- ber of young singers.

McKimmon, Dramatic Events Led Up to Thrilling By ZOE EOZ When the famous "Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence" was drawn up by Dr. Ephriam Bre- vard on the 20th of May, 177 5, which was a full fourteen months earlier that the Declaration of Independence at Philadelphia, Josiah Martin, the royal governor of North Carolina, fearing for the safety of ' himself and that of his family, at once began preparations for leaving New Bern. Sending 1 his family to New York by sea, he went by land to ' Fort Johnston, which was at the mouth of the Cape Fear River, taking advantage of this -Journey to visi* the, Scotch settlement on the upper 'Cape Fear and to start the insurrection which ended in the battle o3 Moor^fs Creek Bridge. When Governor Martin reached Fort Johnson, he found it an unsafe place of retreat, so, in July, he boarded the sloop- of-war, Cruiser, which "was an- chored In the river below the fort, his escape was made in the nick of time as on that day, a party of Ave hundred lowalists, led by Colonel Ashe, burned the fort to the ground. On the 20th of August, 1775, with Samuel Johnston as its presi- dent, the memorable Congress of Hillsboro met and destroyed the_ last vestige of royal authority which was practically put to an end when Martin fled to the Crui- ser. This flight, being looked upon as an abdication of royal govern- ment, the Congress at Hillsboro planned a provisional government by the people to take Its place, with Cornelius Harnett as its lead- er. Harnett was a man of e-duca-. tion and influence, and so dWoted a loyalist that he was called the "Samuel Adams of North Caro- lina." Every branch of the gov- ernment from that time was to be under the control of the people of. North Carolina, and the province '< was under what may be termed a self-imposed martial law. Imme- diate preparations for war were made, militia organizations effect- ed, drills ordered, the manufacture of arms, ammunition, cloth and other war materials provided for. The members of the Hillsboro Con-.j gress, which is also known as the | Third Provisional Congress, when i they deliberately put a government!! of the people in the place of a gov- ernment of the King, fully realized J that success meant freedom, and, that, on the other hand, failure meant submission to a. foreign gov- ernment; yet they went , bravely I forward in their fight for freedom, | not only in behalf of their own j State but also responding heartily | to the calls from Virginia and I South Carolina for help in crush- , ing insurrections in those states by | sending troops to their aid and ' thereby winning the good opinion of the Continental Congress. To the men who upheld the au- [ thority of the King and were op- poeed to any movement which \ would defend the colonies against | the royal government, the term ' "Tory" was applied; while to those-! who demanded that American commerce be free, and that no ; taxes be imposed upon the col- onies by Great Britain, the term, I "Whigs" was applied. The events which led to the "Battle of Moore's' Creek Bridge" are as follows: j Early in the year 1776 it was found that Governor Martin was still on j board the Cruiser, in the Cape ' Fear River, where he was being! closely watched by Colonel James Moore, who kept the First North Carolina Regiment in that section. 1 In February it was rumored that a large body of "Regulators" and Scotch Highlanders had assem- bled at a place which, at that time, was called "Cross Creek," but is now the city of Fayetteville. A romantic interest surrounds this spot because it was the home of the beautiful heroine, Flora Mc- Donald and her husband, General Donald McDonald, both of whom were, quite naturally, devoted Torries, and did everything in their power to incite the insurrection against the Americans. Flora Mc- Donald had won the world's ad- miration by her heroic efforts to aid the unfortunate Prince Charles Edward, after his defeat at Callo- den. She bravely left her home and accompanied the disguised Prince, until .after many perils, he reached a vessel on the coast and escaped to his friends in France. It was said that a large fleet and an army of trained sailors and sol- l diers were on their way from Eng- land and that it was their inten- tion to lay seige to the town of Wilmington. So the members of the Scotch settlement at Cross Creek, under orders from Governor Martin, had armed themselves and were prepared to force their way across the country and join the ex- pected British army when it ar- rived. Governor Martin had promised them that the fleet would consist of ten thousand British sol- diers under the command of Lord Cornwallis and Sir Henry Clinton. He was confident that, with the as- sistance of the Highlanders, he could conquer North Carolina, and so put an end to the rebellion at the very beginning. The High- landers themselves numbered about two thousand fighting men, form- ing a rather formidable force. The Whigs, however, were on the look- out. General James Moore having collected a force of one thousand, - one hundred men, met the ap- proach irig Highlanders at Rock- fish Creek, where he fortified his camp and awaited their attack. Finding there was to be no attack, he sent Colonel Lillington and Cap- tain Ashe with two hundred and fifty men, to occupy the bridge over Moore's Creek, hoping to in- tercept the Tories, who were un- der the command of General Don- ald McDonald. Armed Whigs were assembling from different directions, and the Tories soon ■ realized that unless they managed to pass Colonel Moore, they would be surrounded and captured. McDonald was a skilled and experienced officer, but he was ill at the time ,and unable to lead his men personally, so they were led by Donald McLeod. Mov- ing his men across the Cape Feat- River, McLeod prepared to me r t Colonel Caswell and his command of eight hundred men who were coming up from New Bern. Has- tily joining Lillington, on Moore' 3 Creek, Caswell artfully led the en- emy to believe that he was camp- ing on the same side of the river with him. On the evening of Feb- ruary 26, 1776, he left 'his fires burning, crossed the bridge In the -darkness, removed all the timbers of the bridge except a few girders, and took up a position in support of Lillington and Ashe, these offi- cers having already stationed themselves in the best place to prevent the passage of the Tories. In the darkness of the early dawn, on the 27th, Colonel Donald McLeod, having taken the place of his sick commander, Genera] McDonald, reached what, he had been led to believe was Colonel Caswell's camp. But his spies had been misled, and it was found that his enemies could be reached, only by crossing the bridge before him. The Highlanders were now either compelled to fij?;-,t, or give up their attempt to reach Wilmington. Be- ing too brave to give up, they pre- i pared for battle. So they were led i to battle by Donald McLeod. They I were well armed and in high spir- j Its. Their battle cry was: "King! *T"*.' ' . George and broadswords!"' The signal for the attack to begin was to be three cheers, followed by the beating of drums and playing of bagpipes. The prospect was ap- palling, but McLeod was brave, and putting himself at the head of a picked band of broadswordsmen, he charged across the remaining two logs of the bridge. . It was a dreadful moment when the waiting Whigs watched these dauntless Highlanders, who had l many time, broken the strongest lines of troops in Europe, prepare- to rush furiously upon them. But they were cool and self-possessed, and as fast as McLeod's men ap- peared on the bridge they were shot down by the deadly rifles of the Whigs. More ' than thirty of the bravest of McLeod's men fell into the creek. Colonel McLeod fell dead in his bold charge, pierced by many bullets. So ter- rible was the carnage that the at- tack was halted, and, as the Roy- alists wavered. Captain Slocumb, who .with his company, had crossed the bridge, attacked them on their flank. Panic stricken, the Tories fled wildly from the fatal bridge. The Whigs , followed in close pursuit,, but the victory was overwhelming. By the splendid strategy of the Whig officers, near- ly two thousand Royalists were defeated by eleven hundred un- trained Whigs. The victory was complete, the Whigs losing only one man. They captured eight hundred and fifty of the Highland- ers; including General McDonald, one hundred and fifty swords, one thousand five hundred rifles, fifteen wagons, with a number of horses and provisions, and one thousand five hundred dollars in gold. Dur- ing the entire war there was not a more complete victory. In spite of General Moore's strategy, which was brilliant in conception and daring in execution, it would have availed nothing had not North Carolina been prepared to put promptly in the field troops with the necessary munitions of. war. Some of the troops that took part in this campaign came from above Greensboro, in the West, and from i below New Bern, in the East. Yet, when brought together, infantry, .artillery and mounted troops were all engaged and all worked to- gether as smoothly as if the pro- vince had been accustomed to war. The wisdom of the work of the Congress at Hillsboro, during the ■ previous summer and autumn, was thoroughly demonstrated by the conduct of the campaign, for with- out the use of railroad, steamboat or telegraph, the troops had been rapidly concentrated, and this, in spite of the fact that only three ; months before North Carolina had [sent troops to South Carolina and [Virginia, to help in quelling insur- , rections there. The defeat of the Tories at i Moore's Creek Bridge put an end to [the schemes of Governor Martin, and had such a depressing effect upon the Highlanders and Regu- lators, that it was years before they gave and further trouble. Lord Cornwallis, to be sure, came into Wilmington with his army, but. hearing of the disaster, sailed away, after destroying the home of General Robert Howe. This was 'the first British invasion of North ; Carolina. Colonel Moore was promoted to general for his splendid skill in planning and executing this cam- paign, while Caswell, Lillington and Ashe, and the men of their brave commands, will always be honored for their success and brav- ery. Mary Slocum's Ride , By JUDGE HENRY A. GRADT Have you heard of the ride of Eze- kiel's bride. When she dreamed that her lover -was slain? Will ye list to a tale of the long ago, Of a faithful wife through /weal and woe. From the red sand hills of Wayne? Through a wintry night, by the flickering light, Of a fagot's dying glow. She dreamed of a field of fire, and flood. Of a sullen stream that ran like blood — With the blood of friend and foe.

"Speed. Maggie, speed; let my' life be the meed; There must neither be stop nor stay; For the light in the East ts begin- ning to glow. And there's many and many a mile to go, And the Battle begins at day." But the kindly sky came yet more nigh, And in after years 'twas said. That there was a dip in the Milky Way. And the Ellen Yards shone bright as day, On her fair and lovely head.

And the Cross of St. Andrew was battered and bowed, In the bloody red waters of Moore. Will ye list to a tale of the Whig and the Gael, As my forefathers told it of yore — How they stripped the bridge where the hills divide, How brave JOHN GRADY fought and died, I y the blood stained waters of Moore? How McLeod and MacRae, at the dawn of the day.

"O, What have ye done to this noble son, Ye stalwart men of the Grove? Though I see the cloak on the bloody sands, The cloak that I made with my own frail hands — The sword is the sword of Love!" Like a wilted Rose when the East ■wind blows, She dropped to the dead man's side; She struck the cap from the with- ered eye, And rose with a wild and startled cry; — Twas brave J ohn Grady she spied! Then out of the mist, like a phan- tom, I wist, Stood Ezekiel; but coatless he came, As he fondly pressed to his throb- bing breast The woman he loved, and who loved him the best. Who sobbingly called his name. So, the riddle is read on the field of the dead, (And 'twas handed from father to son: — ) When the fatal shot from the bridge was sped. And Ezekiel saw that his friend was dead, He laid his cloak on John. So they buried John, with his har- ness on. Where the Cape Fear gently flows; With his captain's sword they laid him down. In Ezeklel's choicest cap and gown, But the spot no mortal knows. Then Mary returned to the hills of Wayne, With her lover so gallant and gay; And there by the road sod and dew, They sleep the sleep as we all must do — Waiting the Judgment day. I have told the tale as 'twas told to me. As 'twas handed from father to son; It may be false, or it may be true; Whatever its value, I give it to you. Good people, my story is done.

Historical Significance of Battle Recog- nized at Last as Throng Gathers to Hear Noted Speakers MOORE'S CREEK BRIDGE, Aug. 24 - — W> — Upward of 1 5,000 people from all sections of North Carolina gathered here today for the sesqui centennial celebration ot the battle of Moore's Creek bride* at which the 30-acre tract of land comprising the revolutionary battleground was trans- ferred by the state of North Caro- lina to the United States government j f or the establishment of a national military park. Elaborate exercises were presented in the crowded pavilion under the direction of the Moore's Creek Bat- tleground association of which George J. Moore is president, and the North Carolina Society Daughters of the American Revolution, with Mrs. E. C. Gregory, state regent, presiding. Representing the fe-Je'ral govern- ment were Major General Johnson Hagood, of South Carolina, command- ' mg the fourth corps area at Atlanta and Brigadier General A. J. Bowley, commandant at Fort Bragg By GERTRITOE CAKRAWAY New Bern, Aug. 21. — Although the monument to John Grady, the only Whig killed in the battle of Moore's Creek Bridge, was u»i- veiled at a great celebration at the battleground on February 2 7, 1857, although the centennial of the battle was observed fittingly in 1876, and although anniversary c-^ebrations of the battle were ,often held, it was not until the or- ganization of the Moore's Creek Monumental Association in 18U3 that regular work was undertaken systematically for the proper pre- servation and care of the battle- field and for the reviving of in- terest in the historic spot. For some time the greater part of the present 30-acre battle- ground tract was owned by a ne- gro named Jerry Simpson. Be- tween 1897 and 1907 the property was acquired in various pieces, at small cost, by the State of North Carolina. The Moore's Creek Monumental Association was incorporated by the State in 18 99, "for the purpose of preserving the monument erect- ed to the memory of the noble patriots." The objects of the or- ganization were to add to and beautify the grounds, to compile the records of the "patriotic deeds of those noble sons whose ashes have been neglected for more than a century and to do such other things as tend to inspire among our people State and national pride and a higher appreciation of patriotic manhood." The bill passed by the General Assembly, as introduced by Gibson James, of Pender County, pro- vided for State appropriations of $100 in both 1S99 and 1900 and $50 annually thereafter. Charter members of the asso- ciation, appointed by the Legisla- ture, were as follows: Capt. R. P. Paddison, George J. Moore, Aaron Colvin, E. A. Hawes, James H. Colvin, James .F. Moor§» Dr. George F. Lucas, William F. Bell, Frank P. Flynn, James E. Henry, Jacob J. James, Henry Murphy, James N. Henry, Dr. E. Porter, Gibson James, L. C. Powers, J. C. Nixon, Bruce Williams, W. W. Miller and D. H. Armstrong. Oth- ers were added from time to time. The first meeting of the associa- tion was held at the battleground on July 4, 1899. Unfavorable weath- er conditions made the members go to Currie, where the following of- ficers were elected: James F. Moore, president; R. P. Paddison, secretary; Aaron Colvin, H. M. Durant, W. F. Bell, J. E. Henry, D . H . Armstrong, J . C . Nixon, James N. Henry, J. K. James, Bruce "Williams, L. C. Powers, R. H. Murphy and A. T. Herring, vice-president; and Dr. E. Porter, G. J. Moore, J. H. Colvin, Dr. George F. Lucas, F. P. Flynn, Gibson James, W. W. Mil- ler, E. A. Hawes and W. R. Walker as a board of directors. Work was started at once by the association, which has beer- greatly interested in the baUR- ground since its organization. A pavilion was built for the' annual picnic and patriotic celebration on August 17, 1899. That plans were laid early for Federal recognition of the impor- tance of the battle of Moore's Creek and the value of the battle- ground is apparent from the rec- ords of the annual meeting of the association at the battleground on July 26, 1900, when it was stated in the minutes that: Bruce Williams, D. Porter, W. W. Miller and A. C. Moore were appointed to "prepare suitable me- morials by petition to Congress to present asking the passage of the bill now before that body of the appropriation of ten thousand dol- lars for the Monumental Associa- tion." Later records in 1902 read that the president of the association reported that "everything that. could be had been done to secure Federal appropriation and white he felt very mu^n disappointed in not getting it he still hoped we would get it at a later date." In 1903 W. J. Hollingsworth was elected secretary to succeed R. P. Paddison. E. E. Murphy was named secretary in 1907. In 1908 the meeti?>y; lime was changed from the second Thursday in July to the first Thursday in July. Plans were also laid then for the building of a spur track of the At- lantic and Yadkin Valley Railroad to the battlegrounds. In the same year a committee was appointed "to arrange and state the proper distance from the pavilion for the hitching of horses." J. F. Moore and George J. Lucas both died in 1912 and no celebra- tion was held that year out of re- spect to their memory. George J. Moore was elected to succeed J. F. Moore as president and J. F. Lucas succeeded his father as vice- president. By unanimous vote it j was decided to erect a monument on the field to the memory of the first president of the association. In 1913, it was moved and car- ried that "ladies be admitted as ^honorary members of the associa- tion." Records state that "on ac- count of high -water only a few members were in attendance" at the meeting in 1917. In 1919, "it was moved and carried that no noisy toys be sold on the grounds on the day of celebration until the orator of the day has finished speaking , . M The growth of tne crowds in at- tendance at these annual picnics on the battlefield is evident from the increasing amounts charged for the granting of refreshment b6oth permits. At first no charge was made; later permits went as high as $250. Many improvements were made in the grounds. In 1923. Representative Charles L. Abernethy, of New Bern, pro- posed to the association that he try to secure federal aid for the bat- tlefield. He also suggested that the State Highway Commissioners be asked to connect the site with the State system of highways. The association favored both plans. At a called meeting of the as- sociation on the grounds at the an- nual celebration on Aug. 14, 1924, Mr. Abernethy told of his efforts beforo. Congress to have the ground .deeded to the Government for a national park. He exhibited a copy of the bill he had drafted for the purpose. On Feb. 10, 1925, it was unani- mously agreed by the association that the battlefield should be turned over to the Federal Gov- ernment by the Btate, provided the Government would accept it as a national park and make ap- propriations for its maintenance. The State Legislature, on Febru- ary 27, 1925, the anniversary of the battle, passed resolutions, agreeing to deed the property to the Government, without cost, shoitra th-e Goveatnmeivt accept the gift. With the efforts of Mr. Aber- nethy, Senator Lee S. Overman, the Daughters of the American Revolution of the State and the Nation, and others, this bill was finally passed by Congress in May, 1926. The Moore's Creek Battleground Association and the Daughters of the American Revolution will be in charge of the sesqui-centennial exercises on August 2 4, at which time the tract will be formally transferred to the Government. Officers of the association now are: President, George J. Moore; vice-presidents, Jesse Lucas, J. R. Hawes, W. H. Lewis. R. C. Mur- phy and Julian Keith; secretary, C. L>. Murphy; treasurer, H. C. Walker; custodian, W. R. Walker, and directors, J. W. Flynn, A. D. Ward, J. M. Simpson, J. H. Henry, A. E. Curl, F. B. Orr and B. J. Corbett. NORTH CAROLINIANS ENTERED FOR SESQUI CONTEST AWARDS Many Entries From "State In Philadelphia's Great Event (Special to the Daily Record) PHILADELPHIA, May 17.— North Carolina's pre-eminence nitherto has been held to rest upon her crops of cotton, hemp, tobacco, agricultural and manufactured products. Now there is a new contender for first place in state wealth. The school- boy-and-girl "crop" promises enor- mous returns. Self-reliance, courage, herism. in th" day by day perform- ance of dut- as well as that needed in spectacular deeds, sacrifice, patri- otism, leadership and loyalty are present in this new type. Ambitions vary. Localities mold and modify them more or less. But these boys and girls face and solve their own problems, maintain themselves, work their way when n'ecessary and are proud of it. Entry forms in the American Youth Award indicate that some wizardry may have been worked not unlike that Burbank ap- plied to plant life. Maybe the teach- ers can account for this. The American Youth Award and the American Teacher Award have been established as a tribute to the youth and teachers of America by the directors of the Sesqui — Centen- nial International Exposition, which will be held in Philadelphia from June 1 to December 1 in celebration of 150 years of American Independ- ence.. The award is open to all boys and girls between the ages of 13 and 19. and to all women teachers. Candidates may obtain official entry forms from Sesqui-Centennial head- quarters, Philadelphia. Each state and the District of Columbia has been invited to seek out its most outstanding boy and girl and woman teacher, and these three will go to Philadelphia as guests of the Exposition for the week of June 28 to July 5. They will also visit Washington, and at the White House will be presented with medals by President Coolidge. All of their expenses will be paid from the time they leave home until they return.

If put to a vote !he would easily stand head and shoulders above the crowd f dr courtesy, gentlemanline'/s and cap- lability in the estimate, of his fellow students. He is a thorough and sin- cerely practical Scout, and his class room work is above reproach, for it shows not only honest prepara- tion but a strict attention to the business of the recitation.

His home place is a bird . heaven. 2 — I He has been a leader in promoting the conservation of wild life, both birds and plants. 3— He has been not only a careful student but a patient teacher, and others have caught from him the love for wild life and a desire to see it conserved. In scouting he lacks only life saving to attain his rank as Eagle Scout. He is a fine, clean, manly fellow. His character is above reproach and he is a leader whom others love to follow." , Daniel Niven Stewart, Jr.. lo! of', 1716 Park Drive, is a student of Hugh Munson. high school, Raleigh. His sponsors are T. E. Browne, state director, vocational education, and Gorrell Shumaker, scout executive.

For two years he has served as senior patrol leader in the Boy scout troop of which he is a member, doing much work which should have been done by men, be- cause men were not available. Much of his time has been spent in helping others to qualify and yet he now needs only one more Merit Badge to complete his rank of Eagle Scout. He is above reproach in character, unselfish in service, cheerful in lead- ership, and a most likeable fellow." William Alphonso Wethers, Jr.. 13. of 2220 Hillsboro street, Raleigh, a pupil in Hugh Morson high school, is said to be "one of those quiet, seri- ous-minded chaps. Whatever he un- dertakes he does well. His steadv climb in scouting to the highest rank, that of Eagle Scout, has been not [for the recognition lie might receive hut lor the reason that with the greater knowledge he could serve the tetter. His patriotism is of very practical nature as is shown by lus intense interest in Helping to put across all sorts ot activities for the upbuilding o£ the community. He is a close student oE nature and an ardent exponent ot conservation oL all forms of wild lite." The sponsors of this lad are Margaret Connor, a teacher of Orangeburg. S. C, and Gorrell Shumaker.

WILL HAVE BOOTH AT PHILADELPHIA Committee Plans For State's Participation In Sesqui- Centennial North Carolina *\ill maintain a booth at the Sesqui-centennial Expo- sition in Philadelphia from July 1 to October 1, the booth to contain pic- tures and documents of a historical nature and to serve as an informa- tion bureau in broadcasting facts about North Carolina. This decision was reached at a meeting in the Sir Walter Hotel yes terday morning of the women's com mittee recently named by Governor McLean to arrange for North Caro- lina's participation in the Philadel- phia exposition, and the chief execu- tive was empowered to name an exec- utive committee of seven to com- plete details for the maintenance of the North Carolina booth. The committee is to be named upon rec- ommendation of Mrs. W. R. Rey- nolds, of Winston -Salem, chairman of the women's committee. It is es- timated that such participation, in- cluding cost of floor space and inci dental expenses, will involve an ex- penditure of approximately $10,000. ■The meeting. yesterday was attend- ed by thirty members of the com- mittee and by heads of several 1 State departments, all of whom promised to co-operate in making the North Carolina booth an attractive and effective one. In the absence of Mrs. Reynolds, chairman of the body, Mrs. A. L. Brooks, of Greens- boro, presided. i Governor McLean attended the meeting and when asked for his views as to the method of participa- tion this State should adopt, suggest- id that, in view of the lack of legis- lative appropriations for an exten- sive exhibit of the agricultural, in- dustrial and financial advantages of ihe State, an information booth be set up, to be in charge of represen- tatives of State departments, this arrangement of management sewing to keep down expenses of opera- tion of the booth. The chief execu- tive explained that the exhibition of historical paintings and documents would serve to impress upon visitors the prominent part played by the State in national affairs in the early days of the nation. The plan had been suggested at a recent meeting of members of the committee, and, following the en- dorsement of the governor, a motion for its approval was adopted. Various days have been set aside by exposition officials ou which special programs will be staged. June H will be Flag Day and July 4 In- dependence Day. These days will be observed by all States participat- ing, while October 6 has been desig- nated as North Carolina Day and on that date a special program will be arranged by the State commit- tee.

General Metts ex- pressed the hope that the light in- fantry companies of Charlotte and Wilmington would also find it pos- sible to attend. Miss Adelaide Fries, of Winston - Salem, promised the committee to have redproductions of historical documents concerning North Caro- lina's independence activities, in- cluding Governor Martin's original proclamation, which, she pointed out, will show that North Carolina, was the first State in the Union to set aside July 4 to commemorate the declaration of independence. The State department heads pres- ent, all of whom promised to lend the assistance of their departments to the completion of arrangements for the State's booth and for its I maintenance, were; A. W.
