Abstract:

Recollections of Louisa McCord Smythe is a typewritten transcription of her own reminiscences about life at Lang Syne Plantation (Calhoun County, South Carolina), her family and friends, travels in Europe, and her experiences during the War Between the States and Reconstruction. She was in Columbia, South Carolina in February of 1865, and her memoir mentions a note of warning the family received about Sherman's intentions for the city, and describes the looting and robbery she and her family observed from the window of their house, and the invasion of their home by looting soldiers, who left when General O.O. Howard took the house as his headquarters. She writes of soldiers setting fires with cotton, records her mother's conversation with Gen. Howard in which Mrs. McCord asked "how they as soldiers brought themselves to shell defenseless women and children in their beds," and their glimpse of General Sherman. Her memoir also records her observations about life in Charleston, South Carolina after the war during military occupation, the formation of the "Rifle Clubs," and political unrest. This typed volume includes a preface by her grandson, David McCord Wright.
