CELEBRATION OF FOURTH OF JULY
AT IRWINTON 1831
Clipping from Georgia Journal, July 14, 1831
Pursuant to previous arrangements a large number of citizens of Wilkinson County assembled at the Courthouse to celebrate the anniversary of American Independence; and from thence marched in a procession to the Methodist Chapel when an address was made to the throne of Grace by Rev. Samuel Wright. The Declaration of Independence was read by John B. Hicks, and an oration delivered by Dr. George K. Holloway. The company then retired to Mr. Beall's tavern, and then partook of a sumptuous dinner furnished for the occasion. After the cloth was removed the following Regular Toasts were drank with great harmony and unanimity of feeling:
1. THE DAY - When our country, like the Roman Nation, publicly displayed the jewels of which she is proud.
2. THE HEROES OF THE REVOLUTION - They fought and struggled long and hard for liberty which in descent to their children has been preserved uncorrupted and holy, undefiled and pure.
3. WASHINGTON AND FRANKLIN - The Pressman and Compositor of the work of the American Revolution, the former worked off the enemies of Independence, the latter aided in composing those lines which formed the basis of the liberty we enjoy. Their works shall never be erased from our country.
5. ANDREW JACKSON - President of the United States.
6. JAMES MADISON - His name needs no eulogy.
7. JAMES MONROE - Shame to the Country and Virginia in particular, that one of her most faithful sons should
have to pass the evening of his life in penury and want. May Congress speedily grant him ample justice and Virginia render him independent and happy.
8. LA FAYETTE - The Hero of the Revolution, thrice the Champion of liberty, and the friend of man. Well has he remembered the principles of Washington. To his moderation and prudence France owes her present greatness and Louis Phillippe his Crown.
9. AGRICULTURE, COMMERCE AND MANUFACTURE. Three great founts of Columbian industry; an equal distribution of protection to each will secure to the country at large national prosperity.
10. POLAND - Long has she borne the oppression of the Northern Autocrat; may she soon bear upon her escutcheon of liberty, and "assume among the powers of the earth" that station which her gallant deeds entitle her to.
11. EDUCATION - The forming and preserving power, by which, whatever is immortal in man is made more worthy of an immortal destiny.
12. THE PRESS - The stay and lever of popular governments; the Palladium of our rights and liberties - may it unlock the bars of ignorance and oppression; and cast abroad the rays of truth and toleration.
13. WOMAN - The only tyrants that man is not authorized to resist.
By Major John Hatcher, President of the day: The Nullifiers - May they be compelled to ride on packsaddles made of thorns, placed upon frying pans and gridirons.
By Jesse Pittman, Esq., Vice-President of the day: The Perpetuity of the Union, and the interest and sovereignty of Georgia. The first is secure with Andrew Jackson at its head; the other we believe will be promoted and zealously guarded by Wilson Lumpkin, should he be elected Governor; to do which, let all parties, without regard to party feeling, unite.
By John B. Hicks, Reader of the day; May the sons of freedom who have met to celebrate this day do it in a becoming
manner, and may the factions of each past year be consigned to the tomb of forgetfulness.
By Dr. George K. Holloway, Orator: The New Cabinet. Endowed with more talent, may it possess more wisdom.
By Daniel M. Hall, Esq. The Heroes of the Revolution. May our Country, in the pride of her greatness, never forget those who laid the foundations of her greatness.
By Robert Hatcher, Esq. The Abolition of the Penitentiary System. A better system of Internal Improvement and a speedy acquirement of the Cherokee Land.
By Benjamin Exum, Esq. Andrew Jackson, The President of the United States - the patriotic hero of his country - the savior of Orleans. May he never be forgotten by the sons of Liberty.
By Col. Seaborn Delk - A Just and Equal System of Taxation, without which the noble maxim of the Romans: "Never to Despair of the Republic," will soon cease to console the people of the South.
By Dr. Wm. G. Little - Troupites and Clarkites, May they coalesce and by a mutual decomposition, a new body politic be formed.
By Dr. E.K. Heath, The Brave Commander of the Poles, May his labors be crowned with success and Poland crowned with liberty.
By Jeremiah Beall, Wilkinson County, May the political sentiments of its citizens ever be like its climate, pure and uncontaminated by the fever of party spirit and prejudice.
By Samuel Peace, Marshall: Independence, May the enthusiastic spirit of '76 ever cherish the liberty of America until all the things shall be consigned to the quietus of oblivion.
By John O'Banion, Wilson Lumpkin, the Honest Politician, the Able Statesman, the Favorite of Wilkinson County. May he be our next Governor.
By Abner Hicks, May the Spirit of Troup and Clark be buried in the best of talent and never be raised in the minds of ignorance.
By John Smith, Esq. The Memory of Jasper and McDonald. The Penitentiary system, may it be speedily abolished. Haynes for Governor and the Cherokee Land.
By Captain Thomas Gilbert, Party Spirit, That which Washington, Jefferson and Jackson repudiated let no man who claims to be a patriot embrace.
By Charles Culpepper, The Polanders, May success crown the efforts of the brave Poles and may the genius of liberty direct her armies to victory and glory until all her enemies perish by the sword, or sink in the waves of the Vistula.
By B.E. Hall, Esq. Andrew Jackson, May he succeed in his second election for President. The Penitentiary building - as it has been abolished by fire may the system be abolished by the Legislature. The Cherokee Territory - the right of Georgia; may she speedily acquire.
By James Ross, Esq. Party Spirit. The curse of a free people. It has been denounced by Washington, Jefferson and Jackson. It should not have a place in the bosom of Americans.
By E. Ridley:
O Pope, Had I thy satire's darts,
I'd give the scoundrels their deserts
And rip their hollow, rotten hearts,
And tell aloud
Their juggling, hocus pocus arts.
To cheat the crowd.
By Martin Witt: May the wing of the Eagle of America spread over Great Britain with power to take the Lion by the head and pick out his eyes.
By W.W. Padgett: May Allen Lysles in the next combat possess the power, might and strength of Elijah's God, to tear Martin Witt asunder.
By Joel Butler: Col. Seaborn Delk, who solicits and deserves the suffrage of his friends. May he ride the race of Justice and Success, and the patriotic citizens of Wilkinson County whip for him.
By Josiah W. Hill, Henry Clay:
A little busy politician,
With more heads than a beast of visions,
And more intrigues in every one,
Than all the whelps in Babylon.
By Richard Lewis, Esq., The Constitution of the United States; sufficiently extended without liberal constructions for plain Republicans.
By Peter Buckhotes, Esq. Like the Heroes of the Rev. we go for our country, right or wrong.
By John T. Harrison. May the Fourth of July ever be celebrated by the rising generations in memory of our forefathers:
Who bled and fought so nobly brave,
And by Divine protection,
Did our Country save.
By Thomas Allen: The Heroes of the Revolution, who preferred death and the destruction of their enemies to live in slavery.
By W.H. Wright: Talents and Patriotism. May they always find patrons and friends.
By Edwin Mayo: To the Fair of Georgia. As the Fair have the power to depress the vice on intemperance in the youths of our Country, so may they look with a watchful eye to their own good and glory.
By J. Beall, The Reader: A gentleman, plain, honest and upright in all his dealings with mankind, who has by the courteousness of his address, suavity of his manners insured to himself the esteem, approbation and love of all.
By C. Culpepper, The Orator: A Virginian by birth, in politics consistent, and in friendship sincere.
After a pleasant day the company separated in excellent spirits and general good feelings.

Few churches have had as interesting a history as has Ramah Primitive Baptist Church, located two miles south of Gordon. Its influence through the hundred and twenty years since it was constituted has been far reaching, and it might well be called one of the bulwarks of the Primitive Baptist belief its members unchanging and unchangeable in the ancient tenets and doctrines as practised by their forbears.
Ramah Church was constituted June 10, 1809, by Castlebury, Cornelius Batchelor, Thomas McGinty, McGinty, John Proctor, Adam Jones, Ella Jones, Fanny Proctor, Allen Gay and Abigail Gay.
Around Ramah there soon grew up quite a cross roads community center. The presence of the church did not deter the building of the old race track, traces of which may yet be found, and in its day it was one of the most famous race tracks lying between the Oconee and the Ocmulgee Rivers, and the finest blooded horses were brought here to be entered in the races.
At first this church was a member of the Ocmulgee Association, but in 1814 a new association, The Ebenezer, was formed at Old Cool Spring Church where Allentown now stands and Ramah became a member of this Association. The delegates Ramah sent to organize the association were Allen Gay and Adam Jones.
The membership of the church grew rapidly and the minute show the names of those joining this church to 1820 were: 1809, Ezekiel Bragg, Sarah Bragg, Benjamin Cooper, Nancy Cooper; 1811, Henry Castleberry, Millie Castleberry, John Roach, Elizabeth Aycock, Benjamin Aycock, Fannie Johnson, Elizha Darden, Fannie Darden; 1812 Delilah Jones, Penny Gay, Lillie Gay, Hesikah Darden, Jacob Showes, Polly Showes, Isaac Jones, Sarah Stevens, Reiny Castleberry; 1813, Henry Eady, Solomon Savage, Frederick Henron, Martha Matthews, Mathew Bragg, Bether Williams, Br. Long, Melie Jones, Sister Priscilla; 1814 Stephen Proctor and Susan his wife, John McKenzie, Nellie McKenzie, Mourning Cox, Annie Proctor, John C, Elisha Calloway, Bro. Conner;
1815, Elizabeth Harricur, Celia Cadwell, Ephriam and Rachel Ellis, Ephriam Eady, John Proctor, William and Mary Proctor; 1816 Elizabeth Williams, Bro. Boggs, George Dykes, Hilda Dykes, Joseph Stephens, Rachel Stephens, Levy Matthews, Israel Caldes; 1817, Washington McGinty, James Lambert and Sister Lambert, Charles Young, Martha Young, Simon Johnson, Carleton Greer and Elizabeth Greer, Mary Mott, Allen Hill, Hartwell Moore, William Stanford, Priscilla Collins, Celia Bohannon, Samuel Wells, Bernice Proctor, Millie Moore, Annie Lyles, Cely Stevens, Robert Williams, William Proctor, Henry Castleberry's daughter Dorcas, Theodosis Sirien, Mary Willis, Annie Lindsey, Charlotte King; 1818, John Brock, Sarah Underwood, Tabitha McGinty, Allen Dykes, Tempey Broach, Elizabeth Palmer, Candance Norman, Tom Sanders, Polly Dykes; 1819, Cely Baker, John Wood, Susannah Wood, Nancy Brock, Harold Moore and wife, Morah Passmore, Bether Millican, John Franc.
The first Association was held at Ramah in 1820. It was at this Association that questions arose and were adopted which were destined to develop into a storm of such intensity as should split asunder this Association. For some years the question of Foreign Missions had been slightly agitating the Baptists of Georgia. Now it was brought to a head. Adam Jones, the pastor of this church was scheduled to preach but, illness preventing him, Jesse Mercer filled his place. His sermon seems to have so swayed the minds of the delegates that when a vote on the question of Indian Reform and Missions was had, it carried and for a brief period the Ebenezer Association was committed to Missions.
However, murmurings in the various churches soon began to develop and it was discontinued. Again and again the question was brought up during the years following, bitter feelings began to be engendered and the breach continued to widen between the two factions. Chiefest among those opposing Missions was David Smith whose fiery denunciations of "the institutions of the day" were meeting with favor throughout most of the Wilkinson County churches. Possessing a
powerful delivery and unlimited energy and fully convinced in the justice of his cause he most ably championed the anti-mission side. From church to church he went at every opportunity pouring out anathemas against those whom he felt were leading astray the members of the church. His vitrolic utterances at times resulted in his having to defend his position with his fists, as occurred at Irwinton in the pulpit one day.
In 1835, Ramah called David Smith "without a dissenting voice" to serve this church, and though called again "unanimously" by the "church and vicinity" in 1836, he was unable to accept and Adam Jones was chosen.
In 1836 Resolutions of protest were passed by Ramah addressed to the Association stating that the members of this church were not reconciled to the "Institutions" and would not support them. So strongly anti-mission it is not surprising that following the division at Beersheba in 1836 Ramah should cast in her lot at Pleasant Plains with those churches who refused to remain in fellowship with those who persisted in advocating foreign missions. Thus, Ramah was a member of the Ebenezer Primitive Baptist Association and has so continued until now.
A most remarkable coincidence is found in the names of those serving as clerk of this church. Prior to 1834 the clerks never signed their names to the minutes. Joel Rivers served as clerk from 1834 to 1842. James R. Lewis, his oldest son-in-law was clerk from 1842 to 1862. Thomas R. Whitaker, another son-in-law, was clerk a short time in 1862. Columbus Hogan, another son-in-law, was clerk a short while in 1862 and 1863. Except for a brief period, John McArthur, another son-in-law, was clerk from 1863 to 1890 and from 1897 to 1905. J.T. McArthur, a great grand son of Joel Rivers, grand son of John McArthur and son of J.J. McArthur, served as clerk to 1904. (He was later ordained as a minister here). J.J. McArthur served as clerk from 1904 to 1929, serving as such twelve years before he joined the church.
No one thinks of Ramah without thinking of John Joel McArthur. No one has ever loved Ramah Church more in
tensely than does he. It is his church, his father's and mother's, his grand-father's and grand-mother's. He loves it not only as his place of worship but for the memories, the traditions of the past. To him it is hallowed ground and he asks that when life is over, his body be laid to rest beneath the sod at his beloved Ramah.
Another prominent man, whose wife was a member of this church, was John R. Bragg, still another son-in-law of Joel Rivers and the son of Samuel Bragg, active in the county during the War Between the States, serving for a term in the Legislature. His widow only recently died in Macon where several of her sons reside.
The pastors who have served Ramah Church number among the list some of the ablest preachers of their time. First was John Ross; then Adam Jones. From 1835 the list is fairly complete and is as follows: 1835, David Smith; 1836, A. Stephens; 1838, Adam Jones and Lampkin Vandiver; 1840, John Evers; 1841, A. Black; 1842, David Smith; 1843, David Bassit; 1844, John Evers; 1841 to 1850, Lynch B. Porter, William Porter; 1859-63, L.B. Porter; 1845, James Granade; 1856, W.M. Cooper; 1871-73, W.F. Rogers; 1874-79, J.I. Keel; 1883, W.B. Carr; 1887 to 1912, John Gresham. The present pastor, Elder T.G. Wright of Macon is recognized by all who have heard him as a very able preacher.
In 1861 the present church was built. The building committee was: John McArthur, Thomas R. Whitaker, William Ryle, members of the church and W.M. Whitehurst and J. W. Branan. In 1864 when Sherman's Army came through, a portion of his troops encamped about Ramah. The locks of the church were broken and it was used as the headquarters of the officers. A part of the church equipment was taken away.
Liberty Church was organized August 29, 1837, by Reverends John Hughs, Jordan Baker, Henry Messer and J.P.
Leverett. The name of Liberty was given because it was the purpose to provide a church for those who were being expelled from other churches on account of their belief in Missions. The members constituting it were: Lewis Smith and wife, Elizabeth, Lewis Clay and wife, Judy, Milly Etheridge, James Hatcher, Colson Sanders and wife Sarah, and John Kingery.
Other early members were: Marth Hoover, Nancy Bales, James Benton, James Jackson, William Lord and his wife, Nancy, John R. Jones, Taliferro Jones, Lidy Jackson, Sarah Hatcher, Viney Nelson, Sara Clay, John Spence, Liza Jackson, Caroline Jackson, Obedience B. Hatcher, Annie Bales, Jincy Spence, John Jones, Liza Brady, Nicy Jones, Samuel Ethridge, Levi Mothershed, Anna Jane Noles, Martha Nelson, John Herston, Nannie McKinsey, William Mackey, Ceiney Mackey, William G. Hatcher, Josiah Rammage, Lucy Clay, William Thompson, Robert Hatcher, Harrison Etheridge, Frances McKinsey, Susan Bales, Robert Etheridge, Tempy Riley, Waid Nelson, Joseph Riley, Sarah Etheridge, Mary Bales, Sarah Snow, James Davis, Berry B.

The first pastor was Rev. John Hughs, following him were: Henry Messer, William R. Steely, A. Tindol and John Dupree.
MT. OLIVE CHURCH
Mt. Olive Church was organized May 25, 1837 by William Payne, his wife Sarah, B. Fordham, Nathaniel Cannon, Miles Cannon, his wife Nancy, John Holliman, his wife Prudence, Anna Buckhalts and Martha Payne, all former members of Big Sandy Church. At the Division which occurred at Beersheba the year before, Big Sandy had asked and received a letter of dismission from the Ebenezer Association. Following the
meeting of the Ebenezer Primitive Baptist Association at Pleasant Plains in 1836, efforts towards uniting Big Sandy with it having been voted down by her members, the above named asked for letters of dismission which were granted. After the constitution of their new church it became a member of the Ebenezer Primitive Baptist Association, while Big Sandy placed her letter with the Missionary Ebenezer Association (See Big Sandy Sketch).
OAKDALE METHODIST CHURCH
Oakdale Methodist Church, organized 1919, by Rev. C.C. Boland. Among the first members were J.T. Davidson, Joel Knight, R.E. Davidson, Mrs. J.T. Davidson, Mrs. Joel Knight, Gordon Hall, C.M. Tidwell, W.O. Hall and Mrs. W.O. Hall.
J.O. Davidson, a member of the Primitive Baptist Church, gave the land upon which the house was built. Others in the community gave the timber or furnished the saw mill or labor, the house being completed in 1921.
TOOMSBORO BAPTIST CHURCH
Toomsboro Baptist Church was organized by Reverends J.M. Kelly and A.B. Smith, September 24, 1906. The original members were: W.J. Hughs, Mrs. H.D. Hughes, Miss Georgia Hughes, Miss Mayme Hughes, Mrs. G.C. Daniel and Mrs. Lizzie Cross. Services were held in the Christian and Methodist Churches until the church was built in 1922.
In 1922 there were only two adult male members, H.E. Stephens and Dr. A.D. Ware and these two managed the building, the house being completed, painted and paid for in 1927.
The pastors who have served this church are: J.M. Kelly, W.O. Young, D. Albert Howard, Fred C. Markert, Allen Cutts, Fred E. Smith, John W. Falkner, Dr. J.C. Solomon, J.K. Williams, Hugh S. Wallace, Dr. A.I. Foster, C.E. McDaniel and E.W. Dupree.
For the years 1927-28, according to the minutes of the
Ebenezer Association, this Church has held the record of being the heaviest contributor to Missions of any church.
WALNUT CREEK CHURCH
Walnut Creek Church was organized in 1878 by Nelson Stuckey who furnished the material and proceeds for the building.
The first pastor of the church was Rev. Wiley Rogers, he and his wife Hope, Mr. Nelson Stuckey and his wife, Sabrinie, were among the first members of this church.
When this church was first established, it was a Primitive Baptist church but the members died, moved away and later a Missionary preacher, whose name was Clarke, re-established it.
Bethel Church was organized in 1833, through the activities of Rev. John Hughs, who served for many years as pastor. Others who served this church were Henry Mercer, Ellis Harville, G.B. Hughes, E.J. Coats. During its history five generations of the Hughes family have preached here. Early members: David Johnson, William Dixon, William Roberson, Richard Barfield and others.
MT. CARMEL CHURCH
Mt. Carmel Church was organized in 1849, by William M. Cooper, John Evers and Henry J. Sears. The first sermon preached in the church was by William M. Cooper, who later served the church for some years. Early members: James Branan, Harris Branan, Archibald Hooks, William Bloodworth, John R. Rains, Sarah Branan, Nancy Allen, Ann Starley, Dellah Merchant.
Asbury. According to information furnished by S.A. Hatfield, this church was organized prior to 1850. Fletcher Reed and his wife, Mrs. Frances Reed, built an arbor and
Charles G. Johnson, aided by William Griffin, conducted the first meetings under this arbor. Mrs. Kate Gibbs gave me the information that the church building was erected in 1895 on land donated by Hardy Durham, the deed being made to C.G. Johnson, William M. Dennard, William Griffin, Kelly Glover and A.H. Moore, Trustees. It was named in honor of Bishop Asbury. Early pastors were: C.G. Johnson and William Griffin, C.B.G. Johnson, (son of Rev. C.G. Johnson and Margaret (Vinson) Johnson,) entered the ministry from this church. Early stewards were: Oliver Johnson, Marshall Dennard and William Veal. A Sunday School was maintained here soon after the church was built, which was attended by children from a great distance.
NEW PROVIDENCE CHURCH
New Providence Church was constituted in 1811, by Elijah Hammack, Daniel Hooks, George Martin, Thomas Hughs, Sarah Martin, Bethel Tutleton and Rachel Hooks, former members of Big Sandy Church who were granted letters of dismission for the purpose of forming this church.
This church rapidly grew in membership until it became one of the largest churches of the county. Rev. John Thomas Hughs served for several years as pastor.
When the division occurred at Beersheba, New Providence and Bethel were the only Baptist Churches in the county whose memberships were overwhelmingly Missionary (See Big Sandy Sketch).
Poplar Springs, evidently this church was an outgrowth of the Old Camp Meeting ground not far from its site. In 1828 Fulton Kemp executed a deed to ten acres of land, where the church now stands, to Jesse Peacock, Wiley Miller, Peter VanLandingham and Jethro Dean as Trustees of this church. The present house was built in 1859 by E.J. Tarpley. When Sherman's army passed through, the church was used by the soldiers and the old minutes have never been seen since.
Some of the pastors were W. Payne, D.E. Starr, G.W. Prescott and W.F. Roberts.
A Methodist church near the home of J.J. Butler was another old church, services being discontinued there about 1858. Among the members were Col. John Smith, Willis Bullock and family.
Old Hopewell, on the Macon and Irwinton Highway just on the line of Twiggs and Wilkinson, is now only a tradition, having disappeared before the War Between The States. Among the members there were the Vinsons.
THE IRWINTON CHURCHES
As seen heretofore the Methodist Chapel was the first church to be organized at Irwinton. This was followed in 1828 with the building of the Baptist Church then located near the Stevens Hotel. A dispute arising between the pastor of this church, David Smith and Deacon John Eady, which resulted in a combat in the pulpit, services were discontinued at this church. It was in the Forties before another Baptist Church was organized at this place.
About 1854 a series of fires broke out in Irwinton. Both churches were burned. Likewise the courthouse. The circumstances surrounding these burnings caused many to believe they were of incendiary origin.
There were a number of Presbyterians living here at the time and they also were desirous of a place of worship. The need for three churches to be built at one time in a town the size of Irwinton caused the various church members to agree upon a Union Church. By an act of the Legislature of 1854, Green B. Burney, A.E. Cochran, William Fisher, William O. Beall, James M. Hall, James Jackson and Thomas N. Beall and their successors in office were incorporated under the name of Trustees of "Irwinton Free Church."
"Sec. III. - And be it further enacted, That the Trustees aforesaid and their successors in office, shall hold the said Church, with the lands heretofore conveyed to said Church by William O. Beall, consisting of one acre, more or less, for the use and benefit of the Presbyterian, Missionary Baptist, and Methodist Episcopal denomination of Christians in perpetuity, in manner following, to wit: The Methodist Episcopal denomination shall be entitled to have, use, and control said Church for the first and third weeks in each and every month, reckoning from Friday morning before the first and third Sabbaths therein, the Presbyterians to have, use, and control said Church the second week in each and every month, reckoning as aforesaid; and the Missionary Baptists to have use, and control said Church the fourth week in each and every month, reckoning in like manner as the Methodists and Presbyterians; and the rights secured in this section to the several denominations mentioned shall be perpetual and inviolable, except by a vote of the Trustees, with the consent of all the denominations interested." (Act of 1854).
The building was completed in 1856. J.W. Lindsey, then a boy, was present and at the dedication by the Presiding Elder, L.B. Payne, witnessed the emotion displayed by the aged Samuel Beall, Green B. Burney and others.
Some of the members of each church were as follows: Methodist, Green B. Burney, Thomas N. Beall, Dr. William Fisher, Judge J. C. Bower, Samuel Beall, W.I. Chambers, E.J. Gilbert, Geo. W. Tarpley; Baptist, W.O. Beall, Dr. A.E. Cumming, Captain Eli Cumming; Presbyterian, Jona Rivers, Daniel A. Moore, Col. R.L. Story, Dr. R.J. Cochran.
RED LEVEL CHURCH
Red Level Church once boasted not merely among the largest congregations of any church of the county, but its membership was composed of many of Wilkinson County's most wealthy and cultured people. For miles around lay the big plantations, and on Sundays from far and near the people would gather, some in fine carriages drawn by such horses as
is seldom seen in these days, others on horse-back, ladies as well as men riding in this manner.
The Charleston earthquake of 1886, which frightened nearly everybody to death throughout this county, happend while a protracted meeting was being carried on at this place.
The preacher whose name was Green, then living in Irwinton, was a powerful exhorter and as the meeting progressed each day waxed more and more eloquent and this being in the days of shouting Methodists when folks got real religion, the revival was on in earnest.
On the night of the earthquake the church was packed to its utmost. The preacher had just delivered himself of a fearful sermon dealing with the destruction of the world and judgment day, but somehow or other when he invited sinners to come to the altar few came. Then in the fervor of his emotions the preacher called on the congregation to bow their heads in a word of prayer. He prayed to "God that it it was necessary to bring the sinners to repentance to send an earthquake and convince them of the wrath of an offended God. It is affirmed that he had scarcely uttered these words than a shudder ran through the earth as the first shock of the quake came, the house beginning to crack in every corner and the walls swaying from side to side. The prayer ceased in the middle of a sentence and every one raised his bowed head to see if the wind was blowing. Just at that moment came the second shock of the quake and pandemonium broke loose. Amidst the cracking of the walls the neighing of the frightened horses, the shrieks of the women and children, with the freshly reminded visions of the destruction of the earth by fire, and the eternal tortures of the lost before their minds, they made a dash for the doors. It is said that the preacher went out the window and only a blind man remained on the inside.
Once on the outside and no more shocks coming, one old man, after looking up and seeing that the stars were in their accustomed places, assured them that it was nothing but an earthquake and that there was no danger. It is said that the crowd then with one accord returned into the church and there
was one of the biggest revivals that night any church ever did have.
UNION METHODIST CHURCH
Union Methodist Church in Lord's district was another old church of the county. Fragments of the old minutes show that Fridays before the Second Sundays were set aside as days for fasting and prayer. This list of members indicated that the roll was regularly called and a record of attendance kept. Early members: Ann E. Freeman, Linny Freeman, Mahaly Freeman, McGowin, Mary McGowin, Thomas Wadkins, Willie Sanders, Jack Kingry, Mary Wadkins, Sally Wadkins, Martha Miller, Mary Miller, E.T.

At first the services were conducted at the homes of the members but soon a church was built on lands donated by James Jackson and Joel Deese. Some years ago a more desirable location being provided by Judge W.F. Cannon, a new church was built at its present site. Early members: Dr. L.F. Salter, B.F. Murchison, R.O. Echols, F.M. Salter, Jas. Garrett, E.S. Holcomb, I.F. Salter, Jasper Howard, Joshua Shepherd, J.R. Ryle, H.N. Garrett, Silas Smith, Richard McGraw, J.W. Evans, C.M.

Myrtle Springs Church was organized February 29, 1812, by Charles Culpepper and Shirey, the first meeting house being built at the cemetery one mile west of Toomsboro on the Irwinton road, later being removed to its present location. Early pastors: John Ross, Charles Culpepper, W.M. Payne, David Smith. The church was originally a member of the Hepzibah Association, but united with the Ebenezer in 1818.

PLEASANT PLAINS CHURCH
Pleasant Plains Church was organized in 1830 by Elijah Hammock, David Smith, Jordan Baker and Icabud Scarborough, David Smith preaching the first sermon and served as the first pastor. Services were originally held one-half mile east of High Hill Court ground on lands of W.W. Smith, but in 1831 it was moved to its present site.
Early members: Elijah Hogan, Joel Hardie, Isaac T. Porter, Elizabeth Porter, Anna Porter, Mary C. Porter, Susanna Smith, William Smith, R.T. Porter, Ambrose Porter, Charles Porter.
The first meeting of the Ebenezer Primitive Baptist Association after the division was held at Pleasant Plains in November, 1836. The minutes of this meeting, after reciting the story of the division, "We then met at the house of Brother Pierce and proceeded to elect necessary officers. David Smith was Moderator at this meeting. A.J. Jones, A. Blake and F. Ivey were appointed to draft a preamble, setting forth the reasons for the withdrawal.
The following churches and their delegates were repre
sented at this meeting: Beulah, Pulaski county, O. Odom, J. Powell; Cool Springs, Wilkinson, D. Smith, M. Tyson; Camp Creek, Baldwin, A. Black, M. West; Ramah, Wilkinson, A. Jones, M.

Friendship Church was one of the early churches of the county. Tradition says the first meetings were held in a house near Claymont, and later on the Irwinton and Macon Road on the Lingo Place. In 1828 it was moved to Irwinton and was then known as the Irwinton Church. Dissension arising, however, it was moved to a spot under the hill opposite the present home of C.C. Thompson. In 1871 it was moved to its present location. Shortly after its removal from Irwinton, the name was changed to Friendship. In 1836 the church voted to unite with the Primitive Baptist Association. Due to a dispute over the question of members joining the secret order of Patrons of Husbandry in 1874, the church united with several other Baptist churches in forming a new association., However, in 1886 it was decided to join the Towaliga Association.

W.A. Hall, W.H. Freeman, Dr. J.D. Thompson and G.C. Daniel composed the Building Committee.
This church being inadequate in a few years, plans began to be made for a new one, which materialized and the present one built in 1928, under the leadership of Rev. J.C. Saville at a cost of $3,000.00, using part of the former church for Sunday School rooms.
The Building Committee at this time were the Board of Stewards, W.H. Freeman, D.R. Freeman, F.B. Chambers, B.F. Bruton, E.F. Armstrong, R.I. Lord and W.I. Dixon, also Mrs. F.B. Chambers and Mrs. W.H. Freeman. This Committee appointed D.R. Freeman and Rev. J.C. Saville to supervise the work.
At the present time we have a very comfortable building composed of a large auditorium and six Sunday School rooms.
The W.M.S. to date have paid for church furnishings.

HISTORY OF DANVILLE
During the early part of 1891 there was great excitement between Macon and Dublin, a distance of sixty miles,
because this isolated section would soon have a railroad traversing its fertile fields and thick forests.
For several years the late Hon. Dudley M. Hughes, of Twiggs County, the late Col. John M. Stubbs, and a few other broad-visioned, patriotic citizens gave their time, energy and money (Mr. Hughes to the extent of $100,000) to the building of this railroad, expecting no return save the touch of civilization.
The track was laid, the engine, such an awe-inspiring sight to country folk, came puffing along to Allentown, the old cross road (Macon to Dublin, Cochran to Irwinton), the postoffice for this section for years, where it was conceded the station would be established. But, to the surprise of all concerned, some at Allentown decided this was not the logical place for a town, so other arrangements had to be made. During the delay of selecting a town site a small girl, living near the present site of Danville, was presented with a tiny red flag, and to her was given the high honor, the enviable position of waving the train down whenever a passenger wished to board it. It is said this little girl who should have been a little boy, would climb a tree near the railroad track and eagerly search for the smoke of the engine. In this way she was able to inform the waiting passengers as to the possibility of the length of time before the arrival of the train. The child was Jennilu Hughes, daughter of the late Hon. Dudley M. Hughes and Mrs. Hughes.
Finally Mr. I.N. Maxwell consented to sell at a reasonable price fifty acres of land, and so in a cotton field with nearby woods the town of Hughes was begun with the building of the depot, then Maxwell's store the present postoffice, then the Yopp and Hill store occupied now by I.A. Adams Co and O, the thrill of residences going up! first, Mr. Alex King built in thick woods on what was considered a street but later developed into an alley, next was the Joe Johnston's house built on what is still the Main Street of Danville and then the dwellings of Mr. T.L. Hill and Mr. W.R. Haynes. Of course a school house was next to be erected, and this too, was built on
Main Street and Mr. Clifford Sanders, famous educator of the 90's was the first teacher.
About this time there was much annoyance about mail going to Hughes, Murray County, Georgia, and since Hughes, Twiggs County was the youngest, it had to give up its name, and by the unanimous consent of Mr. Hughes, Mr. Maxwell, Mr. Yopp and Mr. Hill, the last named being the only one of the four surviving at the present time, the name Danville was accepted. This name was in honor of Col. Daniel Y. Hughes, father of Dudley M. Hughes, and one of the most active citizens in the building of the Macon, Dublin and Savannah Railroad.
It was of course necessary to open roads to the new town - one from the John F. Porter home which produced a much nearer outlet to Wilkinson County, another from highway number nineteen through the Hughes plantation for three miles on out into the flat woods section, the best farming land in Twiggs.
Danville has the distinction of being in two counties, almost in three, and has nearly five hundred citizens.

HISTORY OF ALLENTOWN
The little place known as Allentown in the South corner of Wilkinson County is one of the oldest settlements in middle Georgia.
It was first called Cross Roads, later Cool Springs, then Allen's Cross Roads, and now Allentown.
Ball's ferry and Hartford (Hawkinsville) road which was an old Indian trail was crossed by a road leading from Ft. Hawkins (Macon) to a ford near where Dublin is now. These roads had trails joining them. Smith's trail, also an old Indian trail, is marked on old plot and grants made in 1806. It ran from a Northeast to Southwest direction through (Palmetto Creek) Turkey Creek to the Ball's Ferry Road. This furnished a way for the Smiths, Browns, Merediths, Phillips and Davidsons to come to Cross Roads to the store and church. It afterwards became a road.
David Smith, well-known Primitive Baptist preacher, who lived at Cool Springs for years, was the pastor of Cool Springs church in the latter part of 1822. He also had several other churches in Wilkinson County where he preached. Then another preacher by the name of William Carr also lived and preached here for years.
The names of some who drew land from the State in 1806 and lived here were: Elijah Davis, Luke Padgette, William Hawthorne, Aaron Tison, Linkfield Perkins, David and Anderson Ingram and Henry McCoy.
The oldest J.P. in this section of the county was Timothy Sears. It seems that he kept office for a long time, from 1823 to 18??. The oldest Doctor was Clayton. He owned several lots of land here. It was alleged that just before he died he sold some land, and adding this money to the pile he already had, placed it in an iron pot, carried it off and buried it. Nobody knows where it is hidden to this day.
In 1831 Linkfield Perkins and James Allen bought 252 1/2 acres of land including Cross Roads and improvements thereon from John Gillitte of New Haven, Conn. In 1833 Perkins died and James Allen kept store for five years. He then died leaving his sons, John W. and Willis Allen, to look after his business. John was a farmer, while Willis was a farmer and merchant. Both men were prosperous.
All during the early history of the settlement it was a
gathering place for politicians and church-goers. Men from different parts of the State would stop for hours at a time. In the days before the War Between the States, such men as, Robert Toombs, Alexander Stephens, and Ben Hill would make speeches and have debates here.
In 1854, a warrant for a Charter of Cool Springs Masonic Lodge was asked and was granted, Eli Sears, W.M. Jas. B. Coombs and W.W. Lee were the next officers in order.
Cool Springs Academy was established in 1856, and many of our older people remember it as their first school. When these people around Cool Springs were at the height of their prosperity there lurked in the horizon a great war-cloud which broke forth with its greatest fury in 1861. Like other parts of the country Cool Springs did her bit in spending her money and in sending her best men to the front. One of the most prominent business men of this place lost his life on the battle field in 1863, Ira Ellis Perry. His body was brought back for burial.
Fire destroyed two or three stores here owned by Willis Allen at different times, during the reconstruction period, thus leaving the Allen's Cross Roads with only one store. In the meanwhile, Willis Allen died (1871) leaving a widow and nine children, the most of these children very small. In 1879 Cool Springs Church moved for convenience of most members about four miles Southwest of here. The Cool Springs Lodge for the same reason, was moved to Lauren Hill then later to Lucy Chapel and at present is in Danville.
About 1878, G.O.A. Daughtry, then a young lawyer, from Jeffersonville, came and finished building a store begun by Mr. Smith and went into business. His father came later and several other stores were built. About 1889 or 90 the M.D.&S. Railroad was being graded. In 1891 Allentown was incorporated. Town lots were sold and business began to grow. In this same year the Methodist Church was organized and Methodist Parsonage begun. The Baptists built a church in 1900. The school here was very good for a long time but at present is consolidated with Danville. Allentown has a population of
about two hundred people including whites and blacks.
(Mrs. W.M. Allen)
HISTORY OF GORDON
Today the writer is being proclaimed one of the older citizens of Gordon, and as such has been asked to write a brief history of the town's early days, and yet it seems such a short time since she proudly walked - with her new blue back
spelling book - half a mile toward Milledgeville, where the little one-room school house still stands (next door to Leonidas Hatfield's bungalow) and spent her first day in school.
The writer's mother was reared 6 miles south of Gordon, and often said "that as a young lady it was necessary for her to pass through what is now Gordon, to visit her brother Jackson Leslie who lived where Ed. Ward's home is located, and the land on which Gordon is built was then swampy and covered with gallberry bushes."
In 1843 the Central Railroad was completed from Savannah to Gordon. The town being named for the first president of the road, W.W. Gordon. In 1855 the company built a brick warehouse and depot between the present one and the building now occupied by the Butts Drug Co. This building was burned by Sherman's Army on its noted "March Through Georgia." A small wooden structure replaced it until 1885, when the present brick building was erected. The writer has in her possession an invitation to a Grand Ball that was given and which she attended on the evening of August 6, 1885, in the New Warehouse, which formally opened the building.
At the same time the railroad was built David Solomon, who lived five miles out in the country, built and began operating the Gordon Hotel, which today is in a good state of preservation, and is being used as a first-class hotel. In 1848 Mr. Solomon built a three-story grist and flour mill on little commissioner creek which he afterward sold to Mr. Galloway. It was later owned by B.I. Stevens, then J.W. Hooks who in 1910 sold it to the Pyne Tree Paper Company, where an extensive paper mill was operated until 1927, and is still intact, although not being operated at present.
The town was incorporated in 1870, William Hardison was elected the first mayor. To his memory still stands some of the beautiful elm trees which it was his pride to plant on the streets of the little town. Two small frame buildings were built and used for Town Halls before the present brick one was built in 1917, while W.A. Jones was mayor.
Early in the morning of Oct. 6, 1879, the store building of Mrs. Marjorie Solomon Flemister (where Sol Isenberg is now located) was discovered on fire, which had gained such headway that it soon consumed the next four buildings, the last of which was a two-story building owned and occupied by the writer's father, King Sanders. The middle building was also two stories and the second floor being used as a Masonic Hall. This necessitated a new home for the Masons, many of whom were fathers who had children in school.
A new school building was erected on the present school site in 1880. The second floor was used for the Masonic Hall, the lower floor for a school room in which the much-beloved preacher and teachers, B.H. Ivey and A.R.Rozar (see their sketches) taught school for several years. In 1914 the school having outgrown the one floor, the entire building was purchased by the school trustees and the Masons built the present Temple on the corner of Main Street and Railroad Avenue, with R.I. Wood, W.M.; D.G. Hardie, S.W.; Joe Leslie, J.W.; C.H. McCook, Sec.; B.F. Ryle, Treas.; and J.F. Jackson, W.A. Jones, R.E. Evans and J.E. Bell, building committee. The Gordon Lodge No. 240 F. and A.M. was instituted Nov. 2, 1860, with Washington J. Solomon the first worshipful master; Henry Goodman, senior warden and John T. Lingo, junior warden.
In 1918, this school building becoming inadequate to the still growing needs, was razed and the present building was erected on the same ground by the following trustees; W.A. Jones, chairman; S.W. Lee, secretary and treasurer; J.J. Ryle and R.E. Evans.
Just north of the cemetery the first church - Methodist - was built in Gordon, lot and building donated by that ever philanthropic citizen, "Uncle" Davey Solomon. This building was later replaced by the one which still stands on the original site (now owned by Mrs. Bethany Stevens Byington) and was built by the two outstanding denominations in town - Methodist and Baptist. A few years later the Baptist withdrew and built a church on the north side of Railroad Avenue, where
Rev. B.H. Ivey served the congregation many years.
In 1907 the Methodist church was sold to "Uncle" Jack Stevens, and the present cement block building was erected on a lot donated by W.A. Jones, with W.E. Johnson, pastor; J.E. Bell, Sunday school Supt..; W.A Jones, H.J. Myrick, J.H. Kennington, C.C. Johnson, J.R. Stevens, C.E. Frasuer and J.T. Clements, stewards; J.W. Hooks, H.J. Myrick and S.W. Lee, building committee. In the tower now hangs the same bell that was purchased with donations solicited by Miss Theresa Solomon and the writer in 1887, and hung in the old church belfry 20 years. Long may it continue to call God's people to His house of worship.
In 1924 the Baptist congregation realizing that more commodious quarters were needed, erected the imposing edifice now in use, facing the school building, with Hugh Wallace, pastor; J.T. Dupree Sr.; J.T. Dennard, C.E. Davis, D.E. Tindall, Ed. Ward, F.P. Key, and J.E. Gladdin, deacons; W.B. Ryle, J.W. Brooks Sr. and B..E. Dupree building committee and W.W. Brooks, clerk.
Among the first merchants in Gordon were Eli Frasuer, Jack Lavender, Isaac Newell, Jack Williams and James Fulton.
The first bank to be built in Gordon and operated for several years was the Peoples Bank, 1904, with W.A. Jones, president. The Farmers and Merchants Bank was organized in 1919 with Ira Stinson, president. The town not being financially able to support two banks the Peoples Bank soon failed and the Farmers and Merchants Bank, did not long survive.
The writer has seen many changes in the development and growth of Gordon which is the largest town in Wilkinson County.

OF A WILKINSON COUNTY SOLDIER
The following two letters depict a striking counterpart of Norton's "Bingen on the Rhine." William J. Sanders was a brother of Mrs. J.W. Hooks, Chairman of the History Committee for this book. William N. Ryle was the father of Mrs. J.A. Stokes, of Gordon, both members of Co. B, 14th Georgia Regiment:
Encampment, Virginia, August 27th, 1861
Dear Father and Mother:
You wrote that you heard that I was left in Staunton and was very uneasy about me. That was so, but I was only left with James to wait for a wagon to haul our knapsacks as we did not feel able to walk. We were only left about two hours behind the rest and as for sickness, I have fared good. I am as fat as I ever was for I can't button my coat around my body. I am as healthy a man as there is in our Company.
I reckon Buck has the measles and they are broken out on him as thick as they can be. The rest of our boys are well at this time, about one-half of our Company is sick with measles. There was a man died in our Regiment yesterday evening with the measles. He took cold with them. His name was Gunter, from Worth County.
Father, I heard a very nice sermon last night for the first time since I left home. He preached in our encampment.
Uncle wrote that he heard Malichi had fallen down and ruptured himself very bad. That is so. He fell down the second night we got to Huntersville and hurt himself, not very bad though. The regimental Doctor said he would soon get over it. He is going about but the Captain doesn't make him perform any duty at all.
Father, you wrote you would not come to see us if peace would be made in two or three months, it would be spending money for nothing, But I tell you you would see enough to pay you for all the money you would spend coming
THE DEATH OF A WILKINSON COUNTY SOLDIER IN VA.
here and going back. There were two men made a bet of a five dollar pair of boots that there would be peace made in three weeks. One bet peace would be made in three weeks and the other it would not. We know nothing about it, for we get no news only what we get from Georgia that is worth any thing. We hear from Portsmouth some times. Some of our Company gets a letter from there every day or two and they say that they live well if living on beef and bread is living well. That is what we get and a little bacon, flour and rice, coffee and sugar.
Father, we all went a hoging Sunday and caught three, they were ground hogs. We had them to dig out of the ground and they were good to eat sure, for we cooked them.
Mother wanted to know something about the fruit. There are a few apples and they are not ripe. No peaches nor watermelons at all. I have not seen a watermelon since I left Atlanta. I can get plenty of butter by paying fifteen cents a pound for it, but I do not buy much.
Tell Wm. N. Valentine I will write to him when I get the chance. Tell Doctor and Patience to learn fast and be good children and good to their teacher.
I have nothing more at this time to write, only I remain your,
Your affectionate son until death,
William J. Sanders
Huntersville, Virginia, October 24th, 1861
We received a letter from the old man Dan stating that you wanted to know all about William's sickness and also his death and burial. I wrote to you the day after he was buried, if you have received the letter, and stated to you all the particulars, but as Kelly wanted to drop you a few lines, I will also write you and will give you as plain a description of his sickness and death as I possibly can.
When I got to Eddray which was two weeks and two days before he died I found him and Sergeant McArthur lying in the Captain's tent. He was then able to walk out where he
pleased. He was peart and would sit up and talk and laugh with us and seemed to be very much pleased at my coming, particularly because I was going to stay with them, as there was only him McArthur, Lieutenant Soloman, Shug Smith, Boss and Randol that was there of our Company and they were rather lonesome. He continued to be in the same state I found him in until about four or five days before he died. I then saw that he was sinking. I stayed with him and waited on him from the time I got there until he died. He never made any request nor mentioned home after he was taken so sick nor did he say anything about dying. While he was able to walk about he and I would sometimes talk about home as we frequently did when we were all together.
His mother wanted to know whether he was buried nice or not and whether he died in his tent or not and the name of the place where he was buried, also the disease he had. I will answer all these questions to the very best of my ability.
First, he was buried as nice as we could have buried any man in the army, especially at such a time as it was when he died. I walked three miles before I could find a man to make a coffin. It was made at a saw mill. I picked the plank myself and I picked good sound pine plank and had a very nice plain coffin made. We buried him in the little zouave jacket which you sent to him in the box of clothing, also the pants which were in the box and his uniform coat. He was a very nice looking corpse. It is customary to bury a soldier's blanket with him. He had no blanket for Boss had died on his and he did not want to use it any more until it was washed. I had given him my blanket to cover with the day before he died and as his was not fit to bury him in I buried him in my own. His own blanket we left hanging on a stump for it was impossible to get it washed. We buried the most of his clothes with him, his hat, cap, pocket knife, havre sack and money I put in Dossey's care and he started for home with it yesterday. He had nine dollars and twenty cents.
Second answer. He died in the Captain's tent. he had a good bed for he and McArthur had nearly all the Officer's
THE DEATH OF A WILKINSON COUNTY SOLDIER IN VA.
bed clothes beside a considerable quantity of hay which was next to the ground. He had a very good place to lie. What sleeping I did for five nights which was very little, I did lying at his feet.
Third answer. The name of the place where he is buried is Eddray. His name is engraved on the inside of the lid of his coffin. We also placed a rock on the lid and put very thick plank over the vault. There was a rock put at the head of the grave with his name and the date engraved on it. His disease was the typhoid fever.
Dear Uncle and Aunt, the above is as correct a description as I can give you of William's death and burial by writing. I was the only one of his relatives that was with him through any of his sickness except two days that Gory and James were there. It is true that Doss was there at the time he died but he was sick himself and was in his tent when he died. I was with him all the time and he did not seem to want any person to wait on him but me. I waited on him to the very best of my ability. Had he been my brother I could have done nothing more for him than I did do. I do not think that I did anything more than I ought to have done for I pledged myself to do all that I could for the comfort of my relatives and friends long before I left home.
Dossey will doubtless be home before you receive this letter and if you will question him you will find that his tale will correspond with my state to you in this letter. His grave is noted by myself, Dossey, James, John Valentine, Warren Dykes and several others, so that we can find it a long time from now and I will go with you to the grave any time you want to go to it, that is if you want to carry him home, but if I were you and ever intended to carry him home, I would not undertake it now for it is a matter impossible to get wagons now and if there were plenty of wagons, the roads are blockaded so that there is no chance to get to Eddray with any kind of a carriage. It will be easier to carry him twelve months from now that it would be now. I am now about fifty miles from his grave at Rockbridge Alum Springs, five miles from the
I hope these lines will find you and family all in good health. I am in bad health at this time, though my health is a great deal better than it has been.
I close by saying, I am,
Yours with great respect,
William N. Ryle.
To King Sanders.
The Wilkinson County History would not be complete without the following article written by James P. Cooley and published in the Covington Enterprise which gives an account of Wilkinson County's most unusual case, illustrating how man can defend himself by his past deeds, in the hall of Justice. James Kirkpatrick, was a veteran of the War Between the States, and also an Irishman who loved his grog and was not always the genial fellow when under its influence. There are those in Wilkinson County today who remember the trial. The trial was at Irwinton, Wilkinson County, of the October term of the Superior Court in 1873. Judge George T. Bartlett was presiding and ex-Solicitor General Flem Jordan was representing the state. For the defendant was M.N. Murphy. Mr. Cooley's article follows:
"The following named jurors were empaneled and sworn to try said case: (1) R.E. Hatfield, (2) W.J. Underwood, (3) S.J. Fountain, (4) James Jones, (5) W.A. Hall, (6) B.I. Stevens, (8) S.A. Hatfield, (9) J.K. Arrington, (10) J.L. DuPriest, (11) John Allen, (12) R.B. Yarborough. The testimony submitted on the part of the state was conclusive as to the defendant's guilt, in that he without provocation, struck one William Smallwood over the head with a large butcher knife, almost killing him.
Arguments of counsel for the state and defendant were made. The court had concluded his charge to the jury. The impression made on the minds of all those who heard the case was that there was no escape from a conviction. However, just at this time the defendant rose from his seat and addressed the court in the following manner:
"Your honor, kin I say a word to the jury?" The court seemed surprised at this request and said: "You should have made this request before the jury was charged." Kirk replied: "Your honor, I am nothing but a poor Irishman, and have no knowledge of the court rules, and in my humble way I thought
that it was not proper for me to say one word until all the gentlemen had said all they wanted to say about the case, then I might be permitted to say a word in my own behalf."
The court replied by saying: "Oh, well, go ahead and say what you want to say to the jury." Kirk then turned to the jury and said:
"Gentlemen of the jury, this trial if concerned as to him individually, it would make but little difference as to what your verdict should be, but some of the best blood in the country flows in Kirk's veins, and it would be a disgrace for such good people as he is related to to have a kinsman in the penitentiary. Besides I have a little boy named Tom, 6 years old at home sick. He can speak The Boy Stood on the Burning Deck until tears would come into your eyes, and for his sickness he would have been here to make a speech before you in my behalf. To convict the father of such a bright boy and send him to the penitentiary would be a blight upon his whole life. I know, gentlemen of the jury, that none of you desire to inflict punishment and bring disgrace upon good and innocent people. It is for this that you should spare Kirk. It would not disgrace Kirk, you understand, to convict him, and let the court send him to the penitentiary, but it would disgrace a lot of good folks. After all he is not such a bad fellow at heart. He takes his grog, and he will fight and many have been sent away and carried off, Kirk is as good a fellow as Bill Smallwood, he is a great drunkard and was drunk when this difficulty occurred, and Bill is as mean a man as can be and as sorry a fellow as Kirk, and you all know it. Kirk has done some good things and Bill never has done anything.
"Now, Dick Hatfield, you remember the night after the battle at Baker's Creek, you do, you were sent out on picket with nothing to eat. Kirk took your gun and stood at your post, he did, while you stepped aside to eat the corn. When you had eaten the second ear and dropped the cob, the noise you made attracted the enemy's picket and he cut down on the sound and came near hitting Kirk, when it should have been you, Dick, instead of Kirk. You were in a tight then, Dick, you were, and
Kirk stood by you. Now, Dick, remember that Kirk is in a tight. He wants you to stick, he does." (slapping the juror on the knee.) Then he said:
"Bill Underwood, you remember when you were at Point Lookout, a prisoner, sick and lousy, you were, Bill. Kirk then waited on you the best he could, he did, set by your side and brought you out and you are here now, you are. You were in a tight then, Bill, you were, and Kirk stood by you, he did. Remember, Bill, that Kirk is in a tight now and he wants you to stick" (slapping the juror on the knee). Then he said:
"Seab Fountain, you remember when you were marching to Corinth after the battle of Shiloh, you remember how hungry and footsore we all were, Seab, you said, "Kirk I am starved, but of all the things I want worse is a chew of tobacco; have you one, Kirk? Don't say no." Kirk took from his pocket his last chew, he did, and said, here it is, Seab. This is my last one, and I have been saving it all day until we struck camp that I may lay down on the flat of my back and enjoy it." You looked at it so pitifully, Seab, and begged me so hard for it, you did, until I gave it to you and went without myself. You thanked me and said you would remember me, Seab. You were in a tight and Kirk stacked. Now Kirk is in a tight and he wants you to stack." Then he said:
"Jim Jones, you remember when we were camped at Dalton in the winter of 1863, you do, you had missed your luck and gone broke in a game. You went to Kirk and begged him for a stake, ye did, and he loaned ye one, and ye went away and came back with plenty and paid me and said, Kirk, that loan did me more good than any favor I have ever received and I shall always remember you for it. Now, Jim, you were in a tight then and broke, and Kirk stuck. Remember that Kirk is in a tight now and wants you to stack sure.
"Joe Johnson, you remember the night the army was driven from Missionary Ridge, you do. You had run out and lost your hat, and was bareheaded and shivering from cold, and came to Kirk and said, I never wanted a drink so bad in all of my life, and any man who has got any and will let me have
it, I will not only pay him for it, but will stand by him to the last. You said it, Joe, Kirk had a canteen and he told you so. He did not pour it out in a spoon, but handed to you his canteen and let you take a drink, and begad, you came near drinking up the bulk of me quart, you did, Joe, and I charged you nothing for it. You were in a tight then, Joe, and Kirk stacked. Remember, Kirk is in a tight and he wants you to stack, Joe. Yes, stack, Joe.
"Alfred Hall, you were always a good praying fellow and you and Kirk did not run together only when a fight was on, and then we were about. You remember the night after the battle of Resacca, you came to Kirk, after our line had fallen back, and said, `Kirk, my brother is left behind, either wounded or killed.' You were wounded so that you could not go, and you requested Kirk to do you the favor to go and look after your brother. Then it was that Kirk told you he would do it. At the risk of his life Kirk went and found him, and he was mortally wounded, took him on his shoulder and carried him for a mile or more and brought him into our lines and laid him down and we saw him die. Now, Alfred, you thanked Kirk then for the kindness and said you always would remember it and if you could ever do him a favor, you would. Alfred, now Kirk is in a tight, and he wants you to stack.
"Bart Stephens, you remember the night the army fell back from Kennesaw Mountain across the Chattahoochee river, you were sick, you begged Kirk to stay with you and take care of you, you did. Kirk did so and carried your gun and knapsack all night for you, he did, and the next morning you thanked Kirk and told the captain what had been done for you and you promised that you would always stick to Kirk, you did. Now, Bart, the time is at hand to stack to Kirk and if you think well of what he has done for you, stack.
"Sam Hatfield, you remember in the battle of Atlanta, what a bloody battle it was. You got wounded, you did. We had to fall back and form a new line and you called to Kirk, `Help me, don't leave me alone here - the Yanks will get me,' Kirk said, `Sam, begorra, I will do it,' he did, took you on his back and carried you to a place of safety in the new lines. You
thanked him then and said, `if I can be of any service to you, Kirk, call on me. Now, Sam, Kirk don't remember that he has ever called on you before, but understand, he is calling now. He is in a tight and wants you to stack." Then he said:
"Jess Arrington, you remember when on the return after the bloody battle of Nashville in December, 1864, that it was sleeting and snowing and freezing and you were barefooted, you were. It was a terrible day, you and another soldier of some other command got into a scrap over a pair of shoes lying by the roadside, and about that time Kirk came up the other fellow was about to get the better of you, he was, Jess, but Kirk reinforced you and we soon put him to rout and held to the shoes, we did. Then you sat down and put them on and sat down and put them on and as you went on your way you were saying, `Kirk, these shoes make my feet feel so much better, and if it had not been for you that fellow would have defeated me and would have them on his own feet. I assure you that I appreciate your assistance and whenever an opportunity is offered, I certainly will stand by you. Now, Jess, Kirk has never called on you before, and begorra, he wants you to stack.
"You other gentlemen of the jury, whose names Kirk cannot recall, if I have not been of any service to you, do not blame Kirk, for it was only the want of an opportunity, and your misfortune for not being with Kirk for he certainly would have divided his last chew and his only drink with you, had a chance come in the way to have done so. Kirk is nothing but a dirty, drunken old Irishman, who has lost all the caste that blood and family gave him, but he carries a big heart and a forgiving spirit. He loves mercy and has a feeling for humanity. It is only when he has lost his head from drink that he is vicious and wants to fight. He is sorry that his neighbor was hurt, but it was not Kirk that hurt him, it was the grog that he was carrying that he ran up against and got hurt. Now, if these gentlemen of the jury who know Kirk and for whom he has done something are willing to stack to him and relieve him and his good kin folks and above all that bright little fellow from disgrace then stand for Kirk and stack to him.
When Kirk took his seat the jury, the bar and the whole audience were deeply affected and manifested great sympathy for Kirk. The court only directed the jury to "Retire and return such verdict as you ought to find in this case." The jury filed out of the box and returned within a few minutes with their verdict, handing it to the solicitor general, who announced aloud, "We, the jury, find the defendant not guilty." Then a shout of applause went up receiving no rebuke from the court. Kirk was borne away from the court by friendly hands with congratulations.
Thus ended the most important defense ever made by a defendant in any court in this state."
