Sesquicentennial Commemoration

Patriotism: Local Citizens React to their Feelings, Not Always for the Good Contributed by Stephen R. Bockmiller A reproduction of the pinner apron fashioned by a young Hagerstonian with southern sympathies. The apron was given to rebel cavalry on July 6, 1863 and was used by them as a flag for the rest of the campaign. Courtesy of the author.

he year 1861 will go down in history as perhaps the most patriotic year in our history. More than the months after Pearl Harbor ... more than the months after 9/11. A seventy-five year tension was finally broken. Signs of patriotism were everywhere. Some men wore “secession badges”. Ladies fashioned pinner aprons to resemble Union or Confederate flags. In many communities “Union Poles”, a modern adaptation of the “Liberty Pole” popular during the revolutionary period, would spring up in local communities like Fair View. A hickory tree was chopped down and brought into Hagerstown for this purpose, and it likely served as a flagpole after it was installed. In nearby Middletown, a Union pole alleged to be nearly 100 feet tall was installed on the town green. Some gestures would be odd. Under the title “Practical Patriotism”, the Hagerstown Herald of Freedom and Torchlight reported that a pro-Union slave owner presented a slave boy to a

Pennsylvania regiment that was passing through town as a sign of his loyalty and love of the Union. Some gestures were ugly. On June 5, Dewitt Clinton Rench was visiting friends in Williamsport before his scheduled departure the next day to enlist with the Confederates encamped at Falling Waters. A proUnion mob gathered, jeered him and demanded he leave town. Rather than cause problems for his hosts, he complied, but an exchange of words led to gunfire and Rench was killed. Later in the month, Hagerstown attorney Richard Henry Alvey was arrested by the Union army for his gestures of prosouthern patriotism and was held for over a year. Other gestures would seem to be right out of Hollywood. After a brief campaign to Martinsburg, the 1st Rhode Island State Militia, commanded by Col. Ambrose Burnside, marched back to Washington through Hagerstown via the National Road. In Middletown, local resident Alpheus Appleman and others presented a national flag to Kady Brownell, the www. va l l eyrevue. c o m www. val l eyrevue. com

“daughter of the regiment”. Kady was the wife of one of the regiment’s soldiers and served as a sort of human mascot for the unit. She was later cited for bravery for carrying the regiment’s flag in battle. All these gestures, however, would give way to the realities of war after several months.
