James R. Hagood's
Civil War Memoir

This Civil War memoir and regimental history written prior to 1870 by James R. Hagood reviews his service as one of the youngest colonels in the Army of the Confederate States of America in Maryland, Tennessee, Virginia, and South Carolina. Hagood's relatives, chiefly his nephew, Johnson Hagood 1873-1948, edited and reworked this memoir, ca. 1928 and 1944. He was born in Barnwell, S. C. , the son of Dr. James O'Hear Hagood and Indiana M. Allen Hagood. In 1862 he and a group of Citadel cadets formed themselves into a company of cavalry called the Cadet Rangers, which afterwards became Troop F, 6th South Carolina Cavalry. Hagood later transferred into the 1st South Carolina Regiment of Volunteer Infantry.

This digital project was completed by Tabitha Samuel (MLIS, 2012). Samuel scanned the memoir on an Avision bookedge scanner and created metadata following Dublin Core Metadata Best Practices. This work could not have been done without the help of Henry Fulmer of South Caroliniana Library and Tony Branch, systems administrator for the CONTENTdm database.
