Charles T. Trowbridge reminiscences by Charles Tyler Trowbridge( )

1 edition published in 1892 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Manuscript reminiscences mainly concern Trowbridge's experiences (1865-1866) in the Freedmen's Bureau and as Lieutenant Colonel of the 33rd Regiment of U.S. Colored Troops in South Carolina, accompanied by his commission as lieutenant colonel, dated 11 Nov. 1864. Trowbridge begins with an account of his command of a sub-district of the Freedmen's Bureau in the South Carolina districts of Pickens and Anderson immediately after the war. At Anderson he is met by a committee of citizens imploring him not to bring his colored troops into the town. Other incidents illustrate relations between white citizens and freedmen. In administering the oath of allegiance to Confederate soldiers, Trowbridge meets with Capt. John C. Calhoun ("grandson of the great Nullifier"), and later, James L. Orr, whom he advises to run for the governorship of the state. Trowbridge describes the murder of one of his officers on a detachment sent to Walhalla, and the pursuit of the killer, a local man named Manse Jolly
