For those interested in the South Carolina Volunteers during the War for Southern Independence, there is a fresh new book out. “Gallant Soldiers, Four Years with McCalla Rifles” by E. Wayne Wilson details the history of Company I, Fourteenth South Carolina Infantry, Gregg’s-McGowan’s Brigade — known as McCalla’s Rifles — organized out of Lowndesville, South Carolina. Lowndesville, also in Abbeville County is only a few miles from the section where the “Boys of Diamond Hill” hailed from.

If you come out to see me at the Olde South Thanksgiving and Harvest Festival in Abbeville on Nov. 19, 2011, you may meet Wayne there as well. If you don’t have this opportunity, you may order “Gallant Soldiers” directly from the author by clicking the link and printing the following form: GPS Publicity 1.pdf
