Historical association looks at Civil War times in Polk County by Leah Justice

The Polk County Historical Association recently reviewed some local history from Civil War days (1861-1865) with living historian and Civil War re-enactor David Smith. Polk County was made up of mostly farmers during the Civil War (1861-1865) with an estimated 500 men joining or being drafted into regiments. Smith said that most men joined the war through peer pressure. Rallies were held and if there were 20 men there and 18 joined, the other two would also join to avoid their families being outcast. Some drafts for the Civil War were done by gunpoint. Abraham Lincoln was not on the ballot in North Carolina when he was elected. When Lincoln asked for troops, then N.C. Governor John Ellis (1820-1861) initially told Lincoln he could get no troops from North Carolina. Ellis had a connection to Polk County as he

married a Pearson woman from Saluda. Ellis also served as a judge in the beginning days at the Polk County Courthouse. He was not the governor during the Civil War; he died in 1861. PCHA President Anna Pack Conner and Smith provided interesting facts about the Civil War, including the facts that more books have been written about the Civil War than any other war and that some doctors got rich selling deferments for men to avoid being drafted. North Carolina was also unique in that early in the war N.C. soldiers wore special uniforms made in North Carolina specifically for the state's soldiers. As the war went on and food and supplies diminished, soldiers wore whatever was available. Smith said blankets were in such scarce supply and some battle areas were so cold that soldiers used to fight over the blankets in which dead soldiers were wrapped and buried. Diseases were rampant, including

This portrait of N.B. Hampton is hanging at Polk County Historical Association Museum in Columbus. Hampton was a Polk County resident when the Civil War broke out. He and 64 other men organized the 2nd Company on April 5, 1862. When the war was over, Captain Hampton served as Polk County Sheriff from 1868 to 1890 and also served as the county’s clerk of court. (Portrait painted by George Hampton, N.B. Hampton’s grandson).

typhoid, tuberculosis, smallpox and scabies. Prisons were horrible, with men living in holes and men using the bathroom upstream from their

drinking water, Smith said. In Polk County, news traveled (Continued on page 4)

slowly. Most Polk County residents, an estimated 9,000 at that time, did not own slaves and state and national news had little effect on them, Conner said. One resident's Confederate ancestors had to walk from Salisbury and Charlotte back to Polk County when the war was over, without food and some without shoes. Polk County soldiers noted at the meeting included the man the Town of Columbus was named after, Dr. Columbus Mills. Mills was a surgeon in the war and enlisted in 1861. Napoleon Hampton, whose father was one of the men who donated land to form Columbus as the county seat, also served in the war. Hampton and 64 other men organized the 2nd company on April 5, 1862. When the war was over, Capt. Hampton returned to Polk County and served as sheriff from 1868-1890 and also served as clerk of court. Hampton is buried in the Hampton cemetery in Columbus. Conner said her great-great grandfather, Jesse Green, enlisted in the Company G in 1862. Green was wounded in the bowel in Georgia, but Conner said he apparently recovered from his war injuries as he had two children prior to the war, four more children following the war and, after his wife died, another 10 with another wife. Conner’s other great-great grandfather, William Pack, served and died in the Civil War. William Pack was buried in Georgia. Audience members were also

invited to tell of any ancestors that served in the Civil War. Dewayne Sherman told of his great-great grandfather, George Washington Bradley, who enlisted after the age was lowered at 17. Bradley was born in McDowell County and was the great grandson of a Revolutionary War soldier. Bradley moved to Coopers Gap from McDowell County and was placed in Company C in Asheville during the Civil War. On Dec. 25, 1864, he participated in the Battle of Fort Fisher, Sherman said. He contracted scabies on Jan. 25, 1864 and after the surrender on May 2, 1865, Sherman read, soldiers walked back from Salisbury to Coopers Gap. Bradley raised six children and had 30 grandchildren. Sherman says his death certificate reads that Bradley’s cause of death was “worn out,” with Bradley dying in his 70s. Conner said in looking at Polk County soldiers’ history, many were listed as deserted for a few months then returned. Speculation is that since most Polk County residents were farmers, the soldiers “deserted” the war in order to come home and plant, then returned to service. Not much is known about Civil War soldiers from Polk County. Historical association president Anna Conner and Smith ask that county residents with family history, pictures, documents or stories to let the association know and give historical items to the museum if possible. Anyone with information they want to share about the Civil War or any other historical pictures and items are urged to contact the Polk County Historical Museum, located in Columbus.

All eight candidates for three open commissioner seats participated, including incumbents Ray Gasperson (D), Tommy Melton (Unaffiliated) and Warren WatsonHouseCleAning (Unaffiliated), who are being by Kathy KloppJohnson challenged by Margaret Experienced, trustworthy (D), David Moore (R), Tom Pack dependable. (R), Tedand Owens (R) and Benny Monday Smith (D). through Friday. Asked828-248-3976 how they will handle future jail needs, most candidates responded that1x1 recent upgrades to the jail, including w,f a new roof and budgeted plumbing repairs may buy the county a few more years. Watson said discussions with the county manager have included that if the jail does need to be replaced in the future, the county may want to consider sub-contracting out those services with a neighboring county for long term inmates and using the Polk County jail for short term inmate stays. “I think that’s one way we can collaborate with other agencies and keep our costs down for the taxpayers of the county,” said Watson. Owens said the issue of a new jail has been in the works and a concern for a long time and six years ago when he was a commissioner, the board put a new jail in its long-term building plan. If that plan is still followed, Owens said, a new jail will eventually be built.

“We had some work done on the building and it did improve the situation,” said Owens. “We need to replace the jail at some point in time.” Smith said the jail is about 35 years old and mentioned that the roof was replaced last year and the county has $110,000 currently budgeted to improve the plumbing. He said the current jail with 5 - 7 : 3 0 should P Mwiththe improvements Children $6 Adults $12and stand another five or six years TAKEwith -OUTSWatson’s AVAILABLE he agreed suggestion to house Tryonlong-term United inmates elsewhere. Methodist Church “I’m in favor of what Mr. WatNew son said 195 that we canMarket probably send some of the long timers over to Rutherford County,” Smith said. “They 1x2.5 have a 200 bed jail over there. We can probably keep them 10/20 a lot cheaper over there than we can in our own jail.” Pack said the county has known for a long time it needs to do something with the jail. He mentioned he was on the same board of commissioners as Owens, which set up a building plan. “We’ve pretty much come down the list until the DSS (department of social services) and mental health are finished,” said Pack, “and the jail is going to be the next one. And there again, it’s going to be a decision, do we build a jail to house prisoners here or do we think it’s financially better to for the county to house them in a neighboring county?” Gasperson said what’s important about the jail is that upgrades have been done, including the new roof and the current plan for a major plumbing upgrade with the budgeted $110,000. He said the county needs to look at the situation in terms of local jobs. He said a good time to start looking at a new jail will be when the county gets the middle school paid off. “If we do start transferring and using the facility over in Rutherford County, it might be a good step perhaps, but we’d also be




giving up local jobs that are being multiple employed there in the jail,” said Gasperson. “If we were to move quickly on a new jail, without a doubt it would require a tax increase and I don’t think anybody wants to go down that road.” Incumbent Melton said when he first became a commissioner, the board received a regular report on the condition of the jail and that almost four years ago, the condition of the jail was “catastrophic.” Under the guidance of current sheriff Donald Hill, Melton said, the county was able to improve the quality of the jail. “There were light fixtures that were not working, there were air conditioning units that were not working, the roof was leaking,” said Melton. “I’m not aware of any issues at this time that are major. We have replaced the roof and we are going to spend $100,000 to fix the plumbing that should be starting shortly. If we were to look at building a jail in the future, I would like to look at housing the prisoners outside the county and see what that would cost us versus building a new jail in Polk County.” Johnson said she has heard people talk about concerns about the jail, but it is her understanding that the jail recently got a fairly good report. “A lot of money is going to making repairs, but from what I understand also the jail is not being used to capacity at this time,” said Johnson. “So I think it’s something to always be on our radar since we are putting a lot of maintenance money into it, but at this point I don’t see it as our most critical this year.” Moore said he agrees that the county needs a new jail at some point in time. “We all know that maintenance on an older building gets more and more expensive every year,” Moore said.

Polk candidates answer third Bulletin question The Bulletin recently asked Polk County commissioner candidates to answer five questions about local issues. Here are their answers to the third question. 3) The county and its towns have recently begun meeting jointly, with the main item of business being the creation of a water authority. What is your vision for how Polk County should meet its future water needs, and does that vision involve the towns as equal partners? What other issues would you like to see the county and towns work on jointly? Ray D. Gasperson I’m convinced that it only makes “good sense” to move toward a joint water authority. However, this goal may take several years to achieve. At a recent joint county/towns meeting, we learned from repre-

• AAUW forum (continued from page 10)

Moore said he thinks the county should stay in tune with the state because they have guidelines and inspect jails and make reports to counties. “We need to be prepared for that and have long range planning when the state says we have issues we have to deal with,” Moore said. Other questions during the debate included the candidates’ thoughts on the water situation and regarding the county and towns creating a water authority, All candidates agreed the county needs to work with its towns and try to create a water authority for the future. Candidates were also asked how they plan to protect the county’s rural environment and promote economic development, what they feel are their individual strengths, their recommendations for the county’s Vision 20/20 plan and their thoughts on supporting the Foothills Human Society.

Politads2010- page 46

sentatives of the Jackson County Water Authority that “all the cards must be on the table” before creating a water authority. All assets must be critically evaluated in advance to know whether costly repairs and upgrades are needed. Concerns such as water losses and infiltration must be addressed. All debts must be known. The level of startup capital and appropriate rates must be determined. Each partner must be ready to pull its own weight in such a system. Only then can an educated and wise decision be made whether or not to go forward . The county/towns should also work together on economic development, job creation and travel and tourism in order to maximize the benefits to all while minimizing the costs. (Continued on page 13)

Another question regarded the recent controversial issue of the new DSS building, which is currently in the beginning stages of construction. Opinions differed on the building, with Republican and Unaffiliated candidates saying they think the current building plans are too large and Democratic candidates say they support the size for future growth. Regardless, most commented that the size of the building’s “ship has sailed,” and the new board will have to move forward with the project. All candidates did agree that a new DSS building is needed and moving the department out of the aged Jervey Palmer building should have been done years ago. Conner ended the forum by thanking all candidates for participating and for running for office. She said many residents complain about government, but candidates are doing what most people won’t do – sticking their neck out and for that she thanked them. Another candidate forum will be held at the Saluda Senior Center on Oct. 21 beginning at 7 p.m.

(continued from page 12)

Margaret Johnson The cooperative efforts I have seen at the recent town and county meetings, especially on the creation of a water authority, have been very encouraging. Each entity brings different assets and challenges to the table in these discussions, but should all have an equal voice in establishing how the process moves forward. Investigating other areas for cooperation, such as purchasing and service agreements, should be discussed as we strive to continuously improve the quality of life in our county at the same time we work to use taxpayer money responsibly. We need to begin work on the development of a management plan for implementing the three phases of a countywide water system outlined in the comprehensive plan and for utilizing the Green River from Lake Adger to the Broad River. This plan should detail time frames for each phase and how we will fund these expensive water system projects. Tommy Melton The towns have a wealth of information and expertise provided by the town managers and employees concerning these water issues, and the county can draw upon this wisdom in jointly designing a plan for a water authority with the towns. By analyzing data provided by the towns, we can formulate a plan that will allow interconnection of water systems throughout the county and towns. In conversations with elected officials from the three towns, the main concern (as well as my concern) seems to be working toward reducing the citizens’ tax burden. In order to accomplish this, there could possibly be consolidation of certain services. This extremely harsh economy has produced an environment that demands more creativity in dealing with financial challenges. As we move forward with joint meetings with the towns, we can gain more insight into possible consolidation of other services.

David Moore If elected we must continue this process of working with the towns to see a water authority created. This will ensure that our citizens have a water source within our county. We need to review the current master plan and get back on track with putting the lines on the main corridors and not running lines in certain areas for political gain. ( Issue #2 ) I have had numerous conversations with parents concerning our youth sports programs through out the county. What I hear from most of them is that they want to see our youth sports unified county wide. We also have fields (Searcy and Gibson) that are not being maintained, creating problems for our teams that need to practice. Ted Owens I have answered part of this question in my answer to the first question. I think the towns and the county have something to bring to the table concerning water. So why shouldn’t they be equal partners? Establishing a water authority will take care of involving all. There are many other issues the county and towns can and need to work on to provide needed services and to relieve the tax burden of the taxpayer: I believe these are: planning, recreation, tourism, beautification, economic development, etc. (Continued on page 14)

Tom Pack This is not a new idea as the towns and county have been working on this for over five years. The work needs to continue as having one water authority will be much more cost effective than four separated entities. All towns currently have their sources for water and the county has Lake Adger as a future source. I think Polk County is in good shape as far as sources of water. We just need to work out the distribution of these sources that would be the least costly to the water customers. Just like in business you have to look at what each has to offer to determine the percentage of control by each entity. With that being said I don’t think it is out of the question to have equal representation by all if the Water Authority is totally independent of the towns and county from a revenue basis. What I am saying is the water authority would operate on revenue from water sales only. It would not be able to levy taxes. Also no taxes collected by the towns or county would be used to prop up the water authority. I think the towns and county should work together whenever possible to save the citizens money. We need to get away from the past struggle of who can build the biggest empire, the towns or the county. This results in a waste of citizens’ money. Benny Smith Polk County has an Eco-

Since most of jobs are created by small business, we must do everything possible to encourage entrepreneurs with start-ups and expansions. Working with both the North Carolina Department of Commerce and Advantage West, we can showcase Polk County with the ultimate goal to secure jobs for our citizens. Warren Watson My vision is to form a joint water authority with the county and towns, using multiple water sources in the near-term. In the future, I envision Lake Adger as the primary water source, with Lake Lanier as a secondary supply. I would like to help Columbus move away from its wells. And Saluda’s relationship with Henderson County could help in our watershed efforts. By supplying the most populated areas of the county with water from a centralized surface water system, we can relieve the pressures on groundwater to protect individual wells in rural areas, while concentrating growth in areas adjacent to municipalities, where existing infrastructure is easily accessible. Other joint efforts might focus on public safety, economic development, and tourism.

Columbus Lions celebrate liberty at Polk County Middle School 2x10 10/8,15,22 cauc-039024

Lion Garland Goodwin presented Sheriff Donald Hill to the eighth graders at Polk County Middle School as part of the annual Lions International Celebrate Liberty program. Sheriff Hill (above) presented a booklet containing the full text of the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution to each student and their teacher. The Lions encourage good citizenship by providing these founding documents of the country in convenient form. Sheriff Hill emphasized that much of his work involves upholding the Constitution, mostly the first ten Amendments, called the “Bill of Rights.” The sheriff concluded with a strong warning to avoid use of illegal drugs, because users will not be given scholarships to college and cannot serve in the military. He added that many other doors of opportunity will be closed, and jail time is a likely outcome. (photo by Garland Goodwin)

Chamber golf tournament winning team

2x1 10/1 try

The team of C&E Home Improvements/Dusenbury Insurance took the top prize and bragging rights for the Chamber Cup for the next year at the recent Otho Gibbs Chamber Golf Tournament. Pictured above are Sports winners Kevin Blackwell, Brandon Britton, Chuck Britton and Trey Dusenbury, with a team score of 52. “It’s just unbelievable! The team, and me personally, played the best game ever!” stated Chuck Britton, who said he and Kevin sank some 20 and 30 foot putts, which they had never done before in a tournament. Second place went to the Musselwhite Electric Team, and third place went to the sponsor team of Tryon Federal Bank. The weather was windy but perfect, and the play ended with a rib eye cookout dinner. The tournament was the 12th annual for the chamber, and was played at Meadowbrook Golf Club. (photo submitted)

13th Regional Juried Art Show runs through November 6 Editor’s Note: The following was submitted by Rita E. Landrum. Artists. They’re all crazy, you know. And they’re everywhere! Over a hundred came to Tryon recently in hopes of having a painting or sculpture chosen for the 13th Regional Juried Art Show which is sponsored every other year by Tryon Painters and Sculptors. It is very difficult to create meaningfully. An argument could be made that a painting, poem, sculpture, scherzo, quiche, or quilt does not need to express anything other than delight in color, line, sounds, taste, texture, etc. – the components, the tools themselves. Why, then, is there such a thing as a “juried art show”? Why should anyone care what an artist judging other people’s art has to say? Well, for one thing, it’s provocative (in a good way) to

in Greenville SC. Miller chose 47 interesting works from over a hundred entries, so being a part of this exhibit is a prize in itself. The Juror’s Statement always opens a window and makes my second walk through the gallery feel like I’ve borrowed someone else’s head. As a juror, Miller looks for “a genuineness of expression” and is drawn to “those who find a balance between the subject or concept and the technical skill with which they created it.” In spite of the excellence of the entire show, Miller was able to single out five works worthy

of awards: First Place went to Claire Carey for her sculpture “Out of the Ashes…Hope”; Second Place: Jim Carson’s painting “Saluda Corner; Third Place: Diana Gurri for her collage “Listen.” Although I was not aware that there are degrees of uniqueness, Miller awarded two honorable mentions for “Most Unique” 2D and 3D pieces to Frank Harrod and Janet Orselli for their interesting works “The Standoff” and “Newtonian Chair.” Come in and try it yourself. Pretend you’re the juror and rearrange the ribbons in your mind. Take a friend and talk about your choices. See if anything makes

Letter to the Editor

Gotta love neighbors like them To the Editor: Several Town of Columbus vehicles appeared in front of my house last Friday morning, so I went out to see why they had all stopped by to see me (they usually just return my wave as they go by). Seems there was a lot of water coming up out of the ground and running off in both directions. Soon the backhoe went to work and uncovered several split fittings in the 8-inch main line tee connection, but not before digging up some of my azaleas and moving them out of harm’s way. I always make a comment about the “boys playing in the dirt” when I find them digging around town, but this time they were soon in red mud up to their elbows. Friend Bert Gibbs and crew worked all day and into the night to cut out the damaged pipes and install new ones. When satisfied that there were no leaks, they filled the hole and spread gravel on it. They also put gravel on the layer of red mud on my driveway entrance and left for the weekend. They were back today (Monday) to tidy up, and here’s the really good part: they put my azaleas back, leveled the ground around them and spread mulch on all the red mud! They even brought the Fire Department’s brush truck out to wash the mud off the pavement. While I was thanking them for staying with the job until it was completed and for going the extra mile to put things right, they were apologizing for “the inconvenience.” Gotta love good neighbors like them. May their tribe increase. – Garland Goodwin



It is important to continue to make Polk County a safe place to live, work and raise a family. This campaign is about the future of our citizens. This election is about 2010, 2020 and beyond. The decisions we make in 2010 will determine the safety of our community for decades to come. That is why I am asking for your vote in November.

Letter to the Editor

Wise as serpents, harmless as doves To the Editor: I was reminded recently of a timeless, classic sermon by the great Rev. C. H. Spurgeon, delivered on April 1, 1855 and entitled “Joseph Attacked by the Archers”. He is referring to Genesis 49:23, 24 and speaks of Joseph, who was sold into slavery, bound in prison and rose to become a mighty ruler of God’s people. Following are excerpts: “Mark well his quietness. His bow abideth. It is not rattling, it is not always moving, but it abides, it is quite still; he takes no notice of the attack. The archers sorely grieved Joseph, but his bow was not turned against them, it abode in strength. He turned not his bow on them. He rested while

they raged. Doth the moon stay herself to lecture every dog that bayeth at her? Doth the lion turn aside to rend each cur that barketh at him? Do the stars cease to shine because the nightingales reprove them for their dimness? Doth the sun stop in its course because of the officious cloud which veils it: Or doth the river stay its course because the willow dippeth its leaves into its waters? Ah! No; God’s universe moves on, and if men will oppose it, it heeds them not. Let your bows, my brethren, abide. Do not be in a hurry to set yourselves right. God will take care of you. Leave yourselves alone; only be very valiant for the Lord God of Israel; be steadfast in the truth of Jesus and your bow shall abide. Some men are so very particular about reputation. They think, “surely, surely, surely they shall lose their character.”

Seating still available For reservations, call 828-749-2321


Fear not, Christian. Let slander fly, let envy send forth its forked tongue, let it hiss at you, your bow shall abide in strength. Oh! shielded warrior, remain quiet, fear no ill; but, like the eagle in its lofty eyrie, look thou down upon the fowlers in the plain, turn thy bold eye upon them and say, “Shoot ye may, but your shots will not reach half-way to the pinnacle where I stand. Waste your powder upon me if ye will; I am beyond your reach.” Then clap your wings, mount to heaven, and there laugh them to scorn, for ye have made your refuge God, and shall find a most secure abode”. How many Josephs do we have out there? By the way, speaking of Joseph; yes, Joe, relationships are very important. Old friends can become new ones. You can go home again. – Tina Melton

Well, well, if we do not lose them through our own fault, we never need care about anybody else. You know there is not a man that stands at all prominent, but what any fool in the world can set afloat some bad tale against him. It is a great deal easier to set a story afloat than to stop it. If you want truth to go round the world you must hire an express train to pull it; but if you want a lie to go round the world, it will fly: it is as light as a feather, and a breath will carry it. It is well said in the old proverb, “A lie will go round the world while truth is pulling its boots on.” Nevertheless, it does not injure us; for if light as feather it travels as fast, its effect is just about as tremendous as the effect of down, when it is blown against the walls of a castle; it produces no damage whatever, on account of its lightness and littleness.

Q. How do I evaluate a corporate trustee? A. Talk to several. ask how long the trust department or company has been in business, how many trusts do they manage, minimum and average sizes of the trusts and how much experience the staff has. Compare investment returns and fees. ask to see samples of statements or reports and see if you understand them clearly. Facts are important, so are the people. Do they seem to care? Do they listen? How comfortable are you that they will be there for your family when needed. remember, a corporate trustee need not be the sole trustee. If you are concerned about the “human” touch, you can always appoint a co-trustee who is a family member or friend. Call (828) 696 1811 for info on this or other planning techniques.
