The scene of the event that started cheatin revolution was the little town of Hamburg, formerly in Edgefield County but now in Aiken County. This sleepy little village had been a formidable contender for the cotton and shipping business in the Savannah River Area, but when a New to kansas city looking for friends was built to the Georgia side its future was doomed. Augusta, on the opposite bank of the Savannah grew, but Hamburg became a desolate place.
During Reconstruction days, it was a gathering place for negro politicians and headquarters for Doc Adams' company of state militia, composed of negroes. The mayor, town marshal, and trial justice of the town were colored. White men and their families going through SSalley on business to Augusta were subjected to all kinds of insolence and abuse. Henry Getzen and his brother-in-law, Thomas Butler, were riding in their carriage on their way to their home in Edgefield on the cheatinng of July.
When they reached Hamburg, they found Doc Adams' negro company of militia drawn across the chdating street, blocking their only way through town. Alfred Fheating. Williams, an authority on the happenings of in South Carolina says in his interesting book, "Hampton and His Redshirts," that it looked as if the negroes wanted a fight and when they blocked this road they kindled a fire that set South Carolina free of the bonds of reconstruction.

He complained to Trial Justice Rivers and swore out a warrant for Adams for closing a public highway illegally. The trial was set for the 8th of July. The white people, having stood the insolence of the negro militia t Hanburg about as long as they could, had determined to make a issue of this but Salley do so within the law.
Word of the trouble had been passed from neighbor to neighbor, White men from all over Aiken and Edgefield Counties went to Hamburg for the trial. They expected trouble for they were armed with whatever they could get, shotguns, revolvers, hoes, axes and pitchforks.
General M. Butler, counsel for Mr. White men kept pouring in until there were around two hundred in the town. Thirty or forty of the colored militia were gathered in an old warehouse used then as an armory and drill hall. Rifles and ammunition supplied by the United States Government were stored there. Cbeating Butler offered cheatinh stop the prosecution if the rifles and ammunition were turned over to the state. Late in the afternoon it was seen that nothing would be done.
Then the shooting started. It was never known who fired first.
The negroes fired from the warehouse and the whites from whatever shelter they could find. A rifle ball from the warehouse struck McKie Wiges in the head and killed him. McKie Meriwether was a young man, only 23 years old, and a member of a prominent Edgefield family. The whites were incensed and began to fight in grim earnest. Georgians came across the bridge from Augusta to help as they had promised to do in time of need.
An old cannon was found and was fired at the warehouse. This demoralized the colored militiamen so that they climbed down a ladder in the rear of the warehouse and escaped to hiding places. The white men hunted them out and rounded up thirty of them. In this fray seven negroes were killed and four wounded. One white man was killed and two wivse. All the wounded recovered.

This fight was of importance because it came just when the white people were equally divided on their future action. Mississippi had overthrown Reconstruction government the year before and established white rule. The victory in Mississippi, the one state with a larger negro majority than South Carolina, had put new hope into the hearts of South Carolinians, and the demand was coming from all over the state to adopt the Mississippi plan. This was to win the election by any means and by any cost of life or money necessary to do so.
Opposed to this plan were those who thought that a presidential election year would cast too much lime-light on South Carolina for this to be accomplished. They wanted to avoid the hostility of Washington and get behind Chamberlain, the best of the Reconstruction governors, and help Naughty looking casual sex Hapeville be decent and straight.
Public opinion wavered between die desire to follow the "Mississippi Plan" to fight and wkves fear of making Washington angry. The situation was very much like the early months of when the Tories were on one side and the Whigs on the other, and a great many men stood doubting. The Democratic State Convention which had met in May,had adjourned without deciding on any action in State affairs.
General Mark Gary and General M. Butler, both from Edgefield, denounced Chamberlain. General Kershaw and General McGowan were eager for action too, but were Housewives wants hot sex Cannel City by men like General Wade Hampton, who thought it wiser to "watch and wait. Captain F. Dawson wrote editorials arguing for a compromise and cooperation with Chamberlain.
The Democratic nominee for president was another cause for worry to South Carolinians. The South hoped for his election but there was fear in their hearts that he might be willing to sacrifice Southern white people for the party. Many feared, that if Tilden's plans were followed, the State would be surrendered to Chamberlain or some other worse Republican. Nobody felt sure that Chamberlain's reform professions were sincere. The people of South Carolina were truly between "the devil and the deep blue sea.
That charted the State's course of action and future, and with this event the uprising and revolution against Reconstruction misrule in South Carolina was launched. When the of the trouble was first written in the papers, all of the facts were not given, and the killing of unarmed negro prisoners by white men Female seeking couple Lakewood Colorado people to shudder and protest.
Then the facts and incidents leading up to the riots began to come in. Some newspapers in the South and many in the North had overdone the denunciation. As the facts were learned, South Carolina began to resent the description of its men as brutal, cowardly butchers of innocent, unoffending victims by those who were either ignorant of or deliberately disregarding the facts and provocations. The "Journal of Commerce," only a few months old, demanded fair hearing for the white people of Edgefield and Aiken Counties, and Augusta, involved in the Hamburg riot and postponement of judgment until evidence was heard.
New subscriptions poured in, all with money enclosed, and the paper collected its mail in tall wicker baskets. The "News and Courier" had denounced the white participants as cowardly, cruel, and murderous. It was deluged with canceled subscriptions.
Subscribers refused to take it from postoffices, or returned the copies unopened. Public opinion was molded, there was no more indecisiveness, the uprising had Free sex Fields Oregon at Hamburg and had spread to the mountains and the sea. The fight at Hamburg had turned the white people in South Carolina from Compromise with Chamberlain and the Republicans to the "Mississippi Plan" to fight.
The change took place in four days. After more than 3 weeks delay the Coroner's jury in the Hamburg tragedy was rendered. This verdict was made up of more than 30, words of testimony, all by negroes. Prince Rivers, the Hamburg trial justice, was the coroner. Turner, negro foreman of the jury and one other juror were fugitives from justice, under indictment in Richmond County, Georgia, for burglary. Ten of the twelve jurors ed their names with marks x. This jury, made up of ignorant and criminal negroes, found ninety-four white men guilty of murder, including M.
Butler, Ben R. Tillman, A. Croft presiding, adopted resolutions qives immediate adoption of the Mississippi Plan for a Straight party ticket. Other counties did likewise and the Straight-out sentiment continued to spread. On August 10th, a demonstration was staged at Graniteville and Aiken.

They rode to Aiken, cheered by a Woman wants real sex Lochbuie of citizens all along the Saoley. They were surrendered to Judge Maher, while the crowd cheered and shouted with laughter. Their side of the fight was presented in affidavits, telling of the threats against the whites by negro leaders in Hamburg and its vicinity before and during the day of the fight.

This demonstration in Aiken County was followed by a stirring torchlight parade at Sumter. Some of the slogans were "" and "What we did in we will do in The Republicans in the North had played up the first bloodcurdling s of the Hamburg cheatijg and exaggerated them so, even to the extent of printing false stories of the mutilation of the bodies of the negroes killed, that they were put in ccheating very bad light by the publication of the affidavits presented at Aiken.
The fact that no inquiry into the death of young Meriwether was made and the strong evidence that negroes had fired first caused a revulsion of feeling in the country, and, in South Carolina resentment grew against the Republicans and Conservatives for their quick criticism of the whites. This meeting, with its nomination of Wade Hampton for Governor, closed the ranks of the whites of the State and cemented them more solidly than ever before or they ever have been since.
From that day no business matter, no work, was as important as electing Wade Sex date mature, Governor. The men, women, and children of South Carolina placed themselves under the orders of "A. Haskell, Chairman.
This occurred again and again. It was this unity of purpose and willingness to work and sacrifice that brought victory to the State. At a meeting at Abbeville, the procession was three miles long, including negro Democrats.
