Three letters, 12, 17 and 27 Feb. 1858, from Wade Hampton III inform his sister of the death of their father, Wade Hampton II. When S.C. seceded from the union and planned for Civil War, Wade Hampton III obtained a colonel's commission and raised the Hampton Legion. To his sister Mary Fisher, Hampton writes details of camp life and discusses military aspects of the war, and expresses his opinions of politicians and soldiers. In letter, 17 Dec. 1861, Hampton noted the occupation of the S.C. coast by Union troops in Beaufort District, S.C., which prompted him the desire to return to the state "to show how Carolinians should fight on their own soil," he mentions the "stigma" of the "Port Royal affair" and remarks, "I have looked for nothing but disaster since that fool [F.W.] Pickens was elected Gov." After returning from an incursion into Pennsylvania in 1862, Hampton informs his sister that he brought back nothing but horses, " & I felt very mean in doing this." Hampton's brigade provided security on the return march, but he was certain that Gen. J.E.B. Stuart would reserve his commendation for the Virginia brigades, "He praises them on all occasions, but he does not often give us any credit."
