My interview with Governor Pickens was, to me, a memorable one.
The center was led by Colonel Pickens, who was in command of the expedition.
As already stated, it was ordered by Governor Pickens, on his own responsibility, without the concurrence of the Legislature.
If the people of Pickens desire to hang it out and keep it there, let them do so.
Orders had been sent to a squadron in Southern waters to relieve Pickens.
In all the South, Pickens and Sumter alone stood stanch to the flag.
The troop was now passing through the upper part of Greene County, where it borders on Pickens.
It ought to be relieved without reference to Pickens or any other possession.
Auntie, we heard you were one of the slaves who used to live on Governor Pickens' place over near Edgefield.
Why did the enemy take off slaves from Tortugas to work for them at Pickens?
