[Simms, William Gilmore]:

SOUTH-CAROLINA IN THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR: BEING A REPLY TO CERTAIN MISREPRESENTATIONS AND MISTAKES OF RECENT WRITERS, IN RELATION TO THE COURSE AND CONDUCT OF THIS STATE. BY A SOUTHRON.

Walker and James, Charleston: 1853 Original publisher's cloth [lightly rubbed, spine sunned]. [3], [1 blank], 177 pp. Endpapers loosened, early removal of bookplate from front pastedown, faint and inconspicuous old blindstamp. Lightly tanned, spotted at margins. Good+. Simms, says DAB, "had a strong bent toward public affairs, a warm local patriotism, and a passion to defend South Carolina, with the whole South, against those who, he thought, maligned or misunderstood them...He did lose all his union sentiments, chiefly because he held that slavery was 'an especially and wisely devised institution of heaven'," which the North was determined to destroy. This book defends South Carolina from the scholarly assaults of Lorenzo Sabine and others, who impugned South Carolina's contributions to the Revolution and suggested that Loyalists were disproportionately Carolinians. He also discusses the works of Moultrie and Ramsay, and lovingly describes South Carolina's martial deeds in the War. FIRST EDITION. Howes S477. III Turnbull 173. Gephart 2332. Brinley Sale 3888.
