Excerpt from Second Series of the Major in Washington City: Some Amusing and Amazing Letters From a Southern Standpoint
A firm believer in the South and its institutions, he promptly enrolled himself in the Eighth Alabama Regiment and rose from Captain to Major before the close of the War. He served in the Army of North ern Virginia with marked bravery and devotion and was at Appomattox when the surrender of Lee prae tically closed the terrible contest between the sec tions.
In the Spring of 1865 the Federal General Wilson, marching ruthlessly with cavalry through Tennessee, Alabama and into Georgia, called at the Major's plantation, designated as The Juleps, Briar Root P. And left it in desolation. Thirty of his negroes followed the Federals, as did a number of his mules, and all his cotton was given to ames. Returning in bitterness, he became an Implacable and a leader among the Unreconstructed.
The election of 1892 resulting in the complete triumph of his party, he felt that the time had come when the South could assert itself as the potent and dominating force in the Union and he interpreted that victory as a guarantee that all the wrongs of his beloved South would be righted and all the damages growing out of the War, which he held to be un constitutional, promptly adjusted. Having a claim against the Federal Government for interest included, he was induced by a few of his neighbors to go to Washington City in August, 1893, to urge the complete fulfillment of the Chicago platform and the prompt payment of the Southern War Claims.
